Reflections On The Fourth of July…and America.

20170704_213018_resized20170704_205357_resizedAs I sat in the stadium on the 4th of July taking in the festivities and the grand array of diversity in people all around me, I marveled in bittersweet thoughts, at how we could be so immersed in celebrating our country’s independence with such joy and camaraderie…yet be so divided at other moments in

time by racism…hatred…bigotry…discrimination…politics…Yet, here we were, a beautiful cross sectional percentage of our country’s population…sitting in a city stadium…listening to band music…enjoying each other, the food offerings and other amusements, while waiting for darkness to fall, to pay homage to our country’s independence in a spectacular display of fireworks!

Then politics crept in…”Taxation without representation!” A resentment which gave rise to the American Revolution…

“This country with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it.  Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it.”

“Public sentiment is everything. With public sentiment, nothing can fail.  Without it, nothing can succeed.” 

“Stand with anybody that stands right, stand with him while he is right and part with him when he goes wrong.”

These are all “food for thought” quotes from Abraham Lincoln… Quotes appropriate to “Independence Day.”  Which leads to another tidbit of thought…”Are we independent?”

The present party of Lincoln cannot and will not fully consider the message of the last quote above because their main objective is and always has been to have control and power at any cost…and right at this moment, they hold the most points toward singlehandedly running our country into the ground, in their blindness to hold onto power…and control.

The Democrats are no better… Corruption has diseased both camps and the ultimate outcome for America is doom, downfall and disintegration…Nations without virtue are condemned to die a horrific death.

Can we the people snap out of the “mesmer” long enough to disable this mechanism of American Genocide?! When will it be recognized that this nation can pull the plug on “Trumpocide?”

Much sooner than later, all of the countries of the world will turn their backs and walk away from a nation that was once a true force and source of strength, power and reckoning to those who threatened freedom and human rights…

Now we risk becoming the worst of adversaries by using education to school in the art of skillful deception and slight of tongue…to manipulate and fool the masses, as we implode from within, and sharpen our new image as the “king’s court of jesters” by parading an “Ambassador of Fools” around the globe as the leader of the “free world!”

Taxation without representation…we are and have been heavily taxed for so long…without representation.

“We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the Courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.”

Independence Day…Let’s all sit back and watch the fireworks.

Coming Into Our Own…

Coming Into Our Own…

Since my last post, I have been standing back…observing…and keeping a silent and constant vigil for the restoration of our country and the salvation of the goodness that runs through the veins of many, and holds the heart of what America is truly all about, together….

We are witnessing an era in the history of mankind about to come to a close… It will come with many sensational transformations and many steps back into the Dark Ages of our nation’s formation…unless we understand the meaning of “We the people…” and coming into our own…

One thing I have noticed time and time again about human nature is some people refuse to believe what is right in front of them.  They live in a perpetual state of denial, and this fatal flaw will lead to the ultimate downfall of civilization as we know it.  At this moment, there is an “Enemy of the State” in the White House, wreaking havoc with our nation and our place in the world…and the blind quest for power and greed has overshadowed the imminent danger of this intruder!

He has come to steal, kill and destroy…and all anyone can see is the selfishness of their own pieces of agenda placed within the whole of his deceitful and scandalous plot to dismantle and demoralize democracy and the contributories to its continuance.

Every second of everyday, we dunk our souls in the fountain of gullibility spewing from some political grifter’s lips, believing every licentious platitude, as if they were promising manna from heaven…in deliverance of the now distant and unreachable “American Dream.” Much too drunk on their fodder to understand that the American Dream is not the attainment of the material, but the principles and values that give us passage to attain the dreams that we dream!

Freedom…gives us the ability to dream…and pursue life, liberty and happiness in formulating our dreams to fruition.  This is guaranteed to us by our own abilities to uphold and enforce our blueprint: the Constitution of the United States, reinforced by our “spiritual gifts” of Truth…Honesty…and Integrity.  Without these, we are just sheep going to slaughter…on the “faith-healing” of fools!

“Coming into our own” is the light switch of real democracy! We the people give meaning to laws, government, and any “body” of any kind that needs the presence and cooperation of “people” to make them viable and operable…without “we the people” in full understanding of our being to make anything “work”, everything would come to a full halt!  Lies…manipulation…promises…smoke and mirrors are all tools to keep we the people from realizing the real and true power of democracy!

Coming into our own has been a slow and painful process of discovery and truth…however, lights are coming on everywhere, and we must not step back into the darkness, or let #45 and his minions continue to dismantle our democracy with their lies…manipulation…promises…deceptions…smoke and mirrors…distractions…demoralizations…character assassinations and talks of walls and bans!

This is not leadership, nor is it the “American Way” of the good in those of us that understand what the ideal of America is all about.  It is that good that has penetrated the darkness of those who still don’t get America…such a great loss for them! They will implode on their darkness, as long as we continue and strive in… coming into our own!

A New Day Dawning…

Yesterday, I wrote this piece and posted it on Facebook… I felt that I should post it on my blog for those who follow my blog, and to ask all to share it.  It is time for everyone to take a moment and reflect upon what is really happening in our country, and come to terms with the realization that our lives will never, ever be the same again.  We are all being called to service…there are no longer shades of gray.  We all know what we must do…have courage…our angels will rush to defend!!!

Today is a new day with a very real, realization…life has changed, and will continue to change with each passing day…our lives as we know them to be are in “dismantle mode” by the present regime that has taken over our nation’s capital and seeks to destroy and deprive us of our hard-won freedoms and humanity, while desecrating and negating the Constitution which created a path to the dream of America…It is by no means perfect, and it is in desperate need of an overhaul…but not by a deranged and soulless dilettante who fancies himself a leader, followed by a legion of mindless, vessels, all too willing to do his bidding, while nipping at his heels to be favored for a chance to claim fifteen minutes of fame to push forth their own mad agendas in wreaking more chaos and havoc upon our country and the world.

We must continue moving forward in unity…ever vigilant in keeping America the “land of the free…and the home of the brave.” We must never again cast our pearls before swine…believing that they will handle them with care and value their worth…every individual with a conscience and a heart are one of those pearls being trampled beneath the feet of the swine disrupting democracy while threatening to further pollute and assist the global deterioration of our home and planet…

Our greatness is our ability to be our best at our worst times…isolation is our enemy, and abandonment to those suffering in the world, due to man’s inhumanity to man…lead us to abandon ourselves, if we abandon those who are suffering due to ignorance and self-aggrandizement by those among us who care not for the value of life…nor the privilege of choice, in doing the right thing, and championing Truth, because in the end, truth is our only salvation.

“Lies,” are “Lessons in Evil Substantiated.” Let us not continue to substantiate the endless ocean of lies coming from the present Republican administration in support of their “Master of Lies.” Many of them have placed the “power and control” of their Party, before the Nation and the People they swore an oath of allegiance to…
Seeds of lies and corruption will never bear honest, robust fruit. Never, ever let anyone convince you that you will survive by partaking of “rotten anything”, as you will surely perish!

Together…from town to town…city to city…state to state…country to country…around the world, continue to stand in solidarity and RESIST, at each and every given opportunity, and create opportunity to proclaim:

“You will honor We the People…you will bend to the will of the people…we believe and practice Truth…Freedom…Justice…Liberty… Human Rights…and any individual’s right to “be”… We will take up our armor of Morals…Values…Commandments…Freedom of Speech…and the Constitution of our Nation…and we will wield the Sword stained with the blood and dignity of our Forefathers…our Ancestors…our Veterans…our Mothers…Fathers…Sisters…and Brothers…our Children…all Sacrificial Lambs fallen by insurgents, prejudices, discriminations, bigotry…hatred…and we will defeat you…We are the real and true Spirit and heart of America…who were one-time Immigrants…who built this country, and who are bent on healing the wounds and ceasing the pain caused to those who were here before us, and those who will come after us…We will RESIST the tyranny of any person, place or thing, because WE are the RESISTANCE, We…the people, in all of our diversity, the fabric of America, and we…will not stand for your virulent branding of “45” upon our chests, arms, wrists, backs, foreheads, or minds…Not today…not ever! “Never again!!!!”

Does America Deserve Trump?

When evil doings are allowed to prevail over truth, assisted with the full cooperation of our governmental systems, not only has our systems failed, along with them exit sovereign integrity everywhere.

The exchanges made to uphold tangible objects over morality have damned humanity forever…

America was envisioned as a place free from persecution, oppression, prejudices of any kind, discrimination, religious restriction, and proclaimed a land of second chances for those who went askew of the laws in their native lands, and a land of opportunity with the fulfillment of dreams to all who sought a new life upon entering her shores…

Equality. Liberty. Freedom…at last. Not so…not so!

Lest we call near extermination and Reservation encampment of our Native American brothers and sisters, equality, liberty, and freedom…still denying their rights to their land by authorizing the encroaching  pipelines, without a thought to their survival, health or welfare…

Equality…liberty…freedom…is that what we call the enslavement, gratuitous lynching, legalized genocide, continued denial of Civil and Human Rights to our Black American brothers and sisters, and their enslaved African Ancestors, brought here from their country, in chains?! We did not learn from the Holocaust of Nazi Germany?! Another has risen and been in continuous operation…because of “difference of appearance” among the status quo…

How do we account for the mistrust of Japanese Americans, who came to and settled in America to have their dreams of equality, liberty and freedom realized? Their loyalties were recognized by placing over 100,000 in internment camps…stripped of their dignity and the lives they built for themselves, here…due to Japan’s actions in WWII…The operative word completely overlooked…”Americans.” Japanese by heritage…yet, Americans!

Executive order 9066, signed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on February 19, 1942, changed lives forever… Sixty-two percent of the internees were American citizens.

In 1988, President Ronald Reagan signed into law the Civil Liberties Act, which apologized for the internment and authorized a $20,000 payment to every surviving internee… it was admitted that the government actions were based on “race prejudice, war hysteria and a failure of political leadership.”

This travesty began February 19, 1942…lasting until March 20, 1946…

February is Black History Month…

Emmett Till…Trayvon Martin…Michael Brown Jr. …Tamir Rice…Sandra Bland… and the endless stream of men, women and children  who have become a part of Black History… because race prejudice is still alive and ongoing in the “land of the free.”

Does America deserve Trump?

“Number 45” has demonstrated an all too familiar pattern with his Republican constituents and cabinet picks who embody the tradition of “race prejudice, war hysteria and failure of political leadership.”   Let’s also add “devoid of any political leadership or political leadership skills.”

It is one thing to change the political face of a governing party…what we are witnessing are the deep seeded roots of dysfunctionalism and destruction born out of hatred, insecurities, greed and a quest for power so intense, that the “Republican Regime” is willing to sink a nation and further induce chaos in a world that is on the brink of exploding…

We must rise above the pettiness…we must look at our past…we must remember…we must not be complicit and turn a blind eye to the “elephants” trampling our liberties and our freedom…we must defend our brothers and sisters under siege…Look in the mirror…they are us, and we are them…they are our family…they are our children…they are human beings…we are humanity first, and Americans, second.

Without our humanity…there are no Americans…without humanity, there are no Canadians…British…French…Italians…Danish…Egyptians….Irish…Africans…All continents would perish…

Somewhere…somehow, we have managed to have enough love to keep us here…somewhere…somehow…we must find enough love to save what makes us beautiful and worth saving to those who have already given their lives before us…who have left their dreams behind for us to maintain…and protect to longevity.

The greatness of America is in the diversity of her people… the richness of America is reflected in the collective contributions of her immigrant population and Native American infusion.

Does America deserve Trump and the Republican Regime?

Let us not sink into darkness by allowing the worst of us to convince us that we must take the road back to antiquity….

RESIST.
