WHAT THIS NATION REALLY NEEDS…

What this nation really needs at this moment in time is a Justinian style ass-whooping applied with extreme prejudice to its entire governmental and legal system. Be that federal, state, or local.

About 80% of all laws ever written by Congress need to be immediately abolished, about 90% of all regulations ever written by any agency or branch or institution of government need to be immediately obliterated, the powers of the president of the United States need to be severely curtailed, most of the powers of the US Senate need to be very seriously reduced (if not eliminated), the powers of the courts need to be greatly reduced, the size and scope of all government needs to be reduced by about 2/3rds (at least by 1/2), and all of those freedoms and powers need to be immediately returned to the Individual Citizen.

Otherwise we’re just gonna become the Byzantine Empire, Part Deux, but five times as corrupt and ten times as bankrupt.

I don’t know about you but screw that Deux, and the diseased, gum-eyed, broken-back, lame-legged, flea-bitten, mangy governmental mare it rode in on.

THERE ARE A LOT OF MODERN PEOPLE from HUMAN EFFORT

There are an awful lot of modern people who don’t ever want to be truly happy about anything. But they do want to be perpetually angry about nothing.

MOST DANGEROUS

One Hundred Years Ago Today

Got some military buddies who are big WWI students, and will enjoy this poem.

From The Illustrated London News of January 9, 1915: "British and German Soldiers Arm-in-Arm Exchanging Headgear: A Christmas Truce between Opposing Trenches" From The Illustrated London News of January 9, 1915: “British and German Soldiers Arm-in-Arm Exchanging Headgear: A Christmas Truce between Opposing Trenches”

Dear Readers,

Today, Christmas Eve 2014, is the 100 year anniversary of the famous 1914 Christmas Truce. I have always been deeply moved by this event, and as so, I have composed this poem in commemoration. It is titled,

“One Hundred Years Ago Today.”

One Hundred Years Ago Today,

On Flanders Fields, where we now lay,

We Brothers, in the midst of blight,

Waited on that silent night.

 

In trenches deep, we lit our fags,

Praying to God as we clutched our tags.

Prayers for home, prayers for peace,

Pleading for the fires to cease.

 

On the night the Angels sang,

We waited for a hellish bang,

Surveying that dreadful no man’s land,

Unsuspected, the miracles, now at hand.

 

The silence was broken, but not by…
