Remember what America does to other nations it can expect it in return and what we do to our neighbors have words found in Bibles.

Mr. President what kind of bag of worms
Have you opened up in the name of democracy?
Imprisoning human beings “At Will” without trail,
Even the Bible says civilization needs courts
Judged from people with religious compassion.

We have forced China to have kangaroo courts.
Now they are set free by American example.
Democratic terrorists imprisoned for eternity
Without courts or trails to worry about.
America has said they have no Geneva rights.

As we claim Executive Privilege of judge and jury,
Other counties will change accordingly, by example.
Countries labeling terrorism and imprisoning civilians.
Oh America, have you aborted international law
Showing the world, Judge Roy Bean justice.

Examples of free speech, could this indict me?
Saying I am a traitor for opening up minds.
For America must moderate as the true jury.
That humanity is worldwide diversity of culture.
America must show the highest standard of law!

What we show the world will be followed closely.
Passenger lists supplied to government flyovers.
Commercial planes boarded by all nations.
Pulling off passengers for terrorist internment,
Longer flights from countries denying lists.

Required passports with no rights, issued for travel
Having to pay $100 for them every ten years.
Poverty imprisoned brides and grooms honeymoons.
Wealth of country club fraternal social parties,
No passport immigrants, serving in wealthy houses.

International Law the bare minimum of civility,
Civilizations across borders among treaties,
Diplomacy of international human rights.
Destroyed in political options of self survival,
Self-destructing as weapons of mass destruction.

Note: Shouting verse of American spirits, free words singing upon open minds, set upon inner reflections.

Comment About Setting The International Example

Republican Presidential (Bush) law had changed the legal times, for the executive branch had taken over the judicial branch. It has also started making its own interpretations of International Law, which other countries will soon follow by our example. Treaties and International Law made weak, null and void, for convenience, all over the world by American example. American soldiers in civilian clothes or nonmilitary Americans could be imprisoned, without legal council or representation for year after year without legal representation or trail, declared terrorists. The Geneva Convention treaty dissolved from protecting civilians from any form of mistreatment or imprisonment. Can you image no international court system to protect civilians? Treating civilians by using the American example of imprisonment, we have given the world. Can this be fair to United States citizens who travel overseas for pleasure? No, but our diversity, culture, and religious values must set the standard for the rest of the world. To regain the ground lost by impulsive politicians threatening the future of international relations.

The United States is demanding passenger lists for Canadian airlines from flights from one Canadian town to another Canadian town. flying over US territory. Should Canada then as a sovereign nation demand passenger lists from American airline flights from the lower 48 to Alaska? Since the United States will demand passport for Canadians here in the United States, those Americans driving to Canada needing passports and maybe visas to go to Alaska? Ferries then not allowed crossing into Canadian waters, taking a long route to Alaska. The Great Lakes and other bodies of common bodies of water being divided by Coast Guards checking for passports and visas. Anglers and fishermen (women) needing passports to fish across borders. Cruise and personal ships mandating passports beyond three-mile limits of shore lines for Coast Guard inspection. Yet Mexicans allowed to stay here without passports and able to get driver’s license driving their wealthy employers or cleaning the houses of less than minimum wages. The wealthy need a cheap silent workforce for their gardening that is for sure.

Because Canada is free and liberal punish them, while they see a conservative United States, punish them in return. Soon the border will have a barber wire of colonial time feelings. Because Mexicans work cheaper than blacks, and are controlled better, allow them freer access for they cannot possible be Republican terrorists.

Nixon’s Republican Law said it was okay to break into Democratic offices, for they were American liberal terrorists. Executive privilege has its Patriot rights to assure the Republican Hierarchy of royal wealth. President Nixon tried to make his own laws trying to silence those, who objected to his policies. Executive power threatening to put anyone who spoke out in jail or by having there well-being questioned. Anyone who spoke out treated like common criminals, especially to a independent free press. Most Republicans think that Deep Throat was a traitor, for standing up to the legal principles of a Constitution. That we need no one to warn us Americans about the following: Enron, WorldCom, HEALTHSOUTH, and others. Whose corrupt corporate officers of dictatorial powers, contributed to political parties for protection. The fraternities of college where wealth is a required criterion for membership, for poverty is an automatic rejection slip.

Friends treat each other equally in respect gained over time, and in a split second, it could be lost forever in hostile times. Soon the treaties of peace will be treated as Indian treaties made from presidential promises. Let the United States go back to the Wild West standards and give them to our former allies.

The tears of the hurricane are coming ashore finding a poet’s eye in the center of tranquil sorrows, that religion might be used to divide the United States. While in my prayers of free speech, I will seek those of many faiths, diversities, and cultures to come together after the storm, to rebuild in unity, no matter their faith, color, or differences, claiming the heritage of religious compassion. In rebuilding destroyed structures, you must have learned from past mistakes, taking on the highest standards given to us by the United States Bill of Rights, respecting the international law of all religions.

There are many grammar mistakes here, for my heart is heavy in words that may never have meaning before it is too late. So I pray as a liberal Catholic Vietnam veteran that our next war is not within ourselves.

Terminated poet of Americas freedom of speech,
Somewhere in America not on company time upon a Crossfire ride.
