A letter to my father

How can I rip poetry from my soul for you?
You are part of me and so is your poetry , rooted deep within my being
I cannot put that emotion into words
The best that I can do is tear out a raw, quivering, bloody lump of feeling
You are my rock, my strength, my laugh, my goodness, my caring,
All of the good things that I am
You are my love, immovable, everlasting
You are my security and protection
The roughness of you in my memory,the scent in my nostrils,
Your face always before my eyes
You are my father, even though you are not
You loved me
Even though you didn’t have to
You are gone and God, the price I would pay
For one laugh or smile
One word of good cheer or uplifting
One story
Or one joke.
I love you

Yeah, He really was that good of a guy. It has taken me 23 yrs. to post it publicly and even after all the time that has  passed, it was still a tough write. Good men make good men and I hope that if he were still here today, that he would be proud. It’s a big set of shoes to fill but I have done my best.

1/4 of Americans want to secede

This tells you how truly screwed up our country is. There are a lot of people that are awakening to the fact that they have no representation and that our political process has failed.

So where is this all going? Do you think it will be magically cured with the next election or the next or the next? It won’t. We will only become more polarized until both sides are diametrically opposed.

Then we will no longer be brothers or countrymen, but instead enemies. We are coming nearer to the tipping point and the closer we come, the uglier it will get.

Yes we are trying still, using all means necessary, to save what we have, but it is failing and we all know it. JFK once said in a speech “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.” and he spoke words of truth.

Once enough people realize that they have been removed from the political process the secession movement will grow. But the Fed has already shown in the past  that they will not make peaceful revolution possible.

As Chairman Mao the favorite philosopher of the leftists said ” A revolution is not a dinner party, or writing an essay, or painting a picture, or doing embroidery. It cannot be so refined, so leisurely and gentle, so temperate, kind, courteous, restrained and magnanimous. A revolution is an insurrection, an act of violence by which one class overthrows another.” And he too speaks words of truth.

Happy Friday everybody……..

“(Reuters) – The failed Scottish vote to pull out from the United Kingdom stirred secessionist hopes for some in the United States, where almost a quarter of people are open to their states leaving the union, a new Reuters/Ipsos poll found.

Some 23.9 percent of Americans polled from Aug. 23 through Sept. 16 said they strongly supported or tended to support the idea of their state breaking away, while 53.3 percent of the 8,952 respondents strongly opposed or tended to oppose the notion.”

Why does Obama call I.S. ISIL? Hmmm….

I know that the following is just rank speculation on my part, but I think I know why he is always referring to “ISIL”.

Yes, this is evil and insidious if true. Could it be that he is trying to garner support for the caliphate by constantly reminding muslims that this is not about war in Iraq and Syria, but rather a traditional homeland that sits right in the middle of the original Islamic empire?

“Compared with ISIS, the group’s old name, and ISIL, that alternate acronym, the newest identifier — “the Islamic State” — is a key piece of propaganda for the group, especially when it comes to targeting potential terrorist recruits.

“That’s a very potent area of propaganda, because ISIS has attracted potentially thousands of foreign fighters, and none of these foreign fighters see themselves as terrorists. They see themselves as knights. They see themselves as mujahedeen. They see themselves as freedom fighters,” Blank says. “So they’re very interested in fighting for the Islamic State, and they do not regard what they are doing as in any way an act of terrorism.”  NPR

Well he couldn’t just call it the Islamic state without being called on it could he? Why would he constantly use the term that encompasses the largest geographical  area possible instead of ISIS?

I decided  many months ago that his heart lay with the Sunni’s by the sides we took in the Arab spring and the middle east in General.

Here is a list do some math:

Syria- Assad is Alawite, rebels are Sunni

Libya-Gaddafi- Former Sunni converted to Quranism, rebels are Sunni

Egypt – Mubarak- Sunni, but he committed the ultimate crime by being an ally to Israel, rebels (Muslim brotherhood) Sunni

Jordan – Abdullah II- Sunni, rebels, there are none. We help Jordan suppress political unrest

“State Department spokesman Mark Toner says the Obama administration believes King Abdullah II is on the “right track” despite the protests, “”We call on protestors to do so peacefully. We support King Abdullah II’s roadmap for reform and the aspirations of the Jordanian people to foster a more inclusive political process that will promote security, stability as well as economic development.”

So now we have started airstrikes against ISIL in a war that all of our Generals are saying we can’t win with airstrikes.

Alright , I’m done, airstrike!

Update with a reader comment. I forgot to include the fact that Israel and Palestine are part of the Levant:

From Stackz o Magz

“He does it as an insult to Israel. When he says ISIL, he is sending a message to Muslims all over the Middle East that he personally does not recognize Israel as a sovereign nation, but as territory belonging to the Islamic State.”

Corruption and the fall of the Ameri….. Err…. Roman empire

I don’t have much time to post at the moment. But read the following excerpts from law and liberty.org Check the link out there is some quality stuff here.

http://lawandliberty.org/justice.htm

“One of the principle causes of the fall of the Roman Republic into the Roman Empire (about 125 BC) was that the patricians (ruling class) changed the leadership back and forth. As in politics today (human nature has not changed) the rules changed back and forth , creating confusion and ambiguity. The political power changed hands between ruling “families” or “caucuses” and each ruling group sought to impose sanctions and prohibitions on the others. The resulting lack of “moral” basis (ambiguity) in the law, created (and still creates) inevitable breakdown. When the people don’t know what the rules are, everyone is liable to be a law breaker. The Roman republic was strong, central, organized, and efficient. The Roman Empire was rotten from the inside out because of “Political Crimes” not “Moral Crimes”

Sound familiar?

Live Ebola updates


Over the next few weeks I am going to try and give you some updates on the Ebola outbreak from sources on the ground. My brother has missions in West Africa and he knows people on the front line in Liberia. I have asked him to send me some periodic updates from his friends on what is happening in real time.

I think that this is important because according to his first report the size and scope of what is going on is being way under reported. According to what he told me, everyone has run out of supplies such as bleach and rubber gloves. One of the missions that he is associated with sent him an urgent request for the aforementioned items.

They have put together a care package and have shipped it to hopefully help them out in their need. I spoke with my brother last night and he said that contrary to news reports, large sections of Monrovia are still under absolute quarantine. He said that the part of the city that juts into the ocean and is sealed off(Map here: http://www.mapsofworld.com/liberia/monrovia.html) and all the residents not dying of Ebola are being starved to death.

His source also told him that there is no medical treatment available at all. All the clinics are full as are the hospitals. Sick people taxi around the country trying to find treatment and in the end, return home to die.

He also told me that entire neighborhoods are infected and the group he is associated with are losing people left and right. My brother is concerned because what he is hearing in the media is not what he is hearing from Liberia and he believes that the MSM is intentionally under reporting the seriousness of the outbreak.

I have asked him to get me some more info and to see if he can get me specifics on it. He is a very busy man and I am hoping that he can cut out some time to do it.

If you would like to help my brother out financially, or just check out his mission, I have a link provided below. If you can afford to kick something in and want to, please do. He is a good guy and he does good deeds not only in Africa, but also here. He has lived most of his life as pretty much a pauper because he is the most generous man I have ever known.

So anyway, I am done plugging for my brother and trying to wring money out of you. But if we can make the updates from Liberia work we will.I don’t know what the status of the internet is over there so I have no idea whether or not I can get some on the ground over there to guest post.

I will give you more when I get it. http://www.friendsofthedeaf.net/

Wardrums

Hearken to the sound that rides upon the bitter wind

Deep within the gathering gloom

comes the sound of war and doom

Hearken and woe, grieve and despair

for the dogs of war are loosed again

The long forgotten pounding drum

bellows out in deafening din

Men of glory, men of honor, rush forthwith to your arms

Siren screaming, beguiling, calling sounding out all alarms

Man has set aside his mercy, cast off all his books of learning

Now shows through his thin veneer all his deepest, darkest yearnings

Rising now from in the ground, red eyes glowing, shrieking, howling

a scream that rents the tortured night

teeth a gnashing, spitting, growling,

Comes that man thought so long dead

haired and furred from foot to head

With a growl, uncaring shrug, nary a thought or realization

he casts off that cloak of civilization.

Man has risen to conquer again.
