MEA CULPA?

OR ... MAY YOU CULPA?

DUH?







Note To All


Every once in a while I must knock myself down a peg or two - ergo, I apologize for my BIG MOUTH!

Considering: the state of the Economy, the World at-large, the mis-treatment of VETERANS, the Crookedness of Politics, the Lying of Officials, the Corruption of Corporations and Congress, the slaughter of God’s innocent Creatures, the Greed of Warmongers, the Stupidity of the Gulf Disaster, the Assininity of War, the Skewing of Truth by the Media, the weakness and Apathy of Americans, and a myriad of other things that ‘go bump in the night’ - I get EXASPERATED - PISSED OFF - FLABBER-GASTED ... and I just have to BLOW OFF STEAM!

While this does not excuse my screaming at the top of my lungs with CAPS - so to speak, it may help to explain my Humanity?

I have been guilty many times in the past of using nasty split-infinitives to describe various and sundry politicians, so-called representatives, and other government officials, like: RAT-BASTARDS - SONS-A-BITCHES - and ARSE-HOLES ... and being fully cognizant of my limited vocabulary, will probably continue to do so in the future. “If the shoe fits - wear it!”

As of this writing, there are approximately 165 days left before the General Elections here in the Good Ole U.S. of A. - to this end, I would be remiss if I did not include herein a friendly reminder ...

VOTE OUT ALL INCUMBENTS !!!

The ‘Two-Party’ System has taken us down the ‘Primrose Path’ for far too long now. America needs some ‘New Blood’ in every level of government - Local, State, National, Inter-National - Doctors, Dentists, Teachers, Electricians, Carpenters, Plumbers, Computer Nerds, Bus Drivers, Semi-Drivers, Firemen, Policemen, Veterans, Retirees, Indian Chiefs - in short, a cross-section of the ‘Common Man’ - hard-working, caring, empathetic individuals that will simply do a good, simple, honest Job for ONE TERM -

And then, return to their ‘normal lives.’

You may have noticed the absence of Lawyers in the above ‘litany’ - that, my Dear Friends, is by Choice! Enough is Enough! Over a Century of Legal Jargonese, or ‘GOBBLE-DE-GOOK’ - is quite sufficient. Imagine new, simple laws, ordinances, rules, whatever - expressed in Simple English - understandable, practical, and not intentionally confusing, nor self-serving!

Patriots, Citizens, Common Folk - with one solitary Goal - to Improve America, by Up-Holding The Constitution, and actually Obeying their Oaths of Office. How Novel! How Basic! How Sensible!

Another Author here at Authors Den, John V. Martin, in a separate communiqué to me personally suggested a Term that I particularly like:

The FREE AMERICAN PARTY.
Does that not have a nice Ring to it?

Granted, the current move under way for some time now, is The TEA PARTY - while this is quite a ‘catchy’ phrase, reminding us of our History in the Port of Boston, many years ago - and the concept of Rebellion against Tyranny, and “Taxation Without Representation” - I honestly fear that many, many opportunists are ‘Jumping on the Band-Wagon’ - like ‘rats running from a sinking ship’ -

Citations from Encarta World English Dictionary:

Equus Asinus - Donkey - a small domesticated member of the horse family with a gray or brown coat, long ears, and a LARGE HEAD - somebody thought of as lacking intelligence (informal insult).

Loxodonta Africana - Loxodonta Cyclotis - Elephas Maximus - Elephant -
A large gray or grayish-brown animal with a long flexible trunk, prominent ears, thick legs, and pointed tusks - somebody or something that is extremely large or much larger than average.

Leucocephalus - Bald Eagle - a large North American eagle found mainly near lakes and rivers, the adult of which has a white head and tail.

SO - instead of an ASS, or a LUMMOX - how about a Logo or Emblem for a New Party that is truly representative of America, as One United Nation? The American Eagle!

Finally, in closing, I look at the current OIL CASTROPHE in the Gulf of Mexico, wonder about the repercussions yet to come, far into the future, and a vivid motion picture comes immediately to mind. In the final closing scene of the old movie ‘Planet of The Apes” - as Charlton Heston rides his trusty steed along the sandy shoreline, out in the distance we realize the absolute, poignant theme of the entire movie ...


There in the background, barely extending above the waterline, at a dangerous tilt, sadly exposed is just the Tip of the Torch, and part of the Head of ...

THE STATUE OF LIBERTY!

The crash-landed astronauts were actually back where they started -

ON PLANET EARTH!

DEVASTATED BY MANKIND!

The whole picture would change dramatically if high government officials were no longer given immunity from the consequences of their decisions but were instead held accountable for their actions in parliament. A few public hangings might just do the trick. Hugs, J

Amen Brother. The founders of this country….were real citizen representatives and did not wish to go to Philadelphia or Washington. They would have preferred to stay home and run their farms and businesses and take care of their families. They faced the very real threat of having those farms and businesses confiscated… and the hang man’s noose of course. There lay the difference….Men of honor willing to sacrifice their homes, wealth and lives to serve their fellow countrymen and country… verses today’s professional politicians (democrat and republican) who are willing to sacrifice their fellow countrymen and country in order to gain wealth and power…and on top of it all…They use OUR money to achieve their dishonorable goals.Truly serving one’s country is a burden… faking it in order to get rich is merely a criminal profession.The proof is in the pudding... or should I say Washington.

Tom,

As usual your keen insight has both entertained and enlightened, though in my view it too late for politics to save us. The pendulum has swung so far in one direction, that our days as an independent democracy are long over, though only our enemies (foreign and domestic) and the global corporate elite (think Illuminati) seem to realize it since they engineered it. Enjoy what's left of it while you can.

PEEWEE - OOPS!

Forgot to include that little gem ... Corporations.

After we the people get some normal, common folk into elected office, then we have a National Referendum -

1. The prior Definition of a Corporation as a separate Legal Entity is hereby Rescinded!

2. Corporate Officers and Boards of Directors can no longer 'hide' behind the corporate charter - besides the Duties of the Office, they will accept Responsibility for their individual actions and participation, thereby being Subject to all manner of Prosecution, both Civil and Criminal!

3. This applies to all Corporations, Limited, or Otherwise, as well as all forms of Partnerships, Professional Associations, and Sole Proprietorships as well!

4. All Corporations and other Businesses that have Assets exceeding One Million Dollars -
$1,000,000 - shall pay a FLAT TAX of 15% of Gross Income - No Deductions, No Complications, No Exemptions, NO OIL DEPLETION ALLOWANCES - NADA! Your 'Free Ride'
is OVER! Time to 'Fess Up' and actually HELP to 'Row the Boat!'

DON'T LIKE THIS? TOUGH! MOVE OUT OF OUR COUNTRY -

See how the rest of the World treats you!

But, GEE Tom, what if the really big guns, like - Monsanto, and Dow, Davison, and other Chemical Manufacturers left us? NO PROBLEMO! Maybe then Americans could begin to breathe FRESH AIR AGAIN! Maybe good ole HORSE-SHIT would be a highly valued commodity as a fertilizer AGAIN? Maybe we'd begin to be GREEN AGAIN?

"Horse-Shit, it makes the grass grow green ... Da, Dum, Da, Da, Da, Da, Dum ..."

Peace BRO - PEACE! Tk.

Apology accepted, (as tongue in cheek as it was offered)

The idea that mankind is destroying itself is absolutely true. However, makind will do nothing to save their collective butts until until they look up and see the sky falling in their direction...then realize..."Houston, we have a problem."

Please let me know how all this works out, we can probably get together for a game cribbage on some cloud floating by overhead.

Cheers,

PLANET EARTH! DEVASTATED BY MANKIND!

That truly needs CAPS, because so many are still not listening.

As for 'VOTE OUT ALL THE INCUMBENTS' that ain't gonna work either. Watching the latest elections, people are throwing out incumbents and replacing them with 'CORPORATION BIG WIGS' who are now spending millions of dollars to 'BUY VOTES.'

And so many 'EXTREMELY GULLIBLE' Americans think they are gonna save us - so quickly forgetting that these are the very same people 'WHO GOT US INTO THIS GOD-AWFUL MESS WE ARE NOW IN IN THE FIRST PLACE.'

WHAT A FRIGGIN COUNTRY!!!
