RE: KARLA’s - Acidic Tears -

KARLA -

Poetry, not unlike Song-Writing, oft' expresses many emotions -

THE BLUES - LOVE LOST - NEW LOVE FOUND - TWANGY COUNTRY WESTERN - BEAUTY - UGLINESS - CONTROVERSY - JOY (JESU JOY OF MAN'S DESIRING) - HAPPINESS - SADNESS - HUMILITY - EGOTISM - GOOD MEMORIES - BAD MEMORIES - FACT - FANTASY - FICTION - and more, more, MORE! The entire gamut of humanity, as well as inhumanity ...

MOOD - ATTITUDE - PLATITUDE - GRATITUDE - FEELINGS!

And, think about it - what IS a SONG after all?
Is it not a POEM set to MUSIC?

Did not the original Balladeers
stroll the streets,
strumming their lutes,
plucking strings, singing tunes?

Telling Stories - is this not what it is all about?

I feel Lousy - Let Me Count The Ways!
But, Surely - there will be Better Days!
I feel Good - See it in my Lays -
Perseverance - always Pays!

Tooth and Nail -
Nail and Claw -
Hang in There -
Pussycat -
Survive it All!

Peace - Love - Abundance - TomPussy!

RE: KARLA’S - For the People By(e) the People -

KARLA - DARLIN' - WE ALL HEAR YOU!

FIRST - I ECHO THE SENTIMENTS OF ALL POSTED BEFORE ME HERE!

SECOND - BARBARA TERRY IS RIGHT - PRINT IT - SEND IT - MAIL IT! -

THIRD - I AM CURRENTLY READING A BOOK, A BIRTHDAY GIFT FROM MY SON AND DAUGHTER-IN-LAW ...
"100 THINGS YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO KNOW" BY RUSS KICK ...

FROM THE COVER -

"People in power - government and religious leaders, heads of big corporations, the rich and well connected - all have one major goal: TO STAY IN POWER! And they'll do whatever it takes to make sure that happens."

This, is what I have been saying for years. The American Citizens - We The People - The Silent Majority - every segmented Minority -
JUST DO NOT 'GET' IT!

Democrat/Republican - Liberal/Conservative - Far Left/Far Right -
ALL IS DICHOTOMOUS THINKING!
And None of those Extremes is the Problem!

RICH VERSUS POOR !!! THERE LIES THE RUB!

No matter WHO WE ELECT - THEY WILL BE RICH!
THEY WILL BE THE POWERFUL!
THEY WILL BE THE PUPPETEERS
PULLING THE STRINGS FROM ABOVE!
THEY WILL 'SCRATCH EACH OTHER'S BACKS!'

Even Two Term Limits will not solve the problem!

Lilliputians MUST ELECT small, unknown LILLIPUTIANS!

Go back to our original highly esteemed Founding Fathers -

THEY were, in fact, mostly - The Landed Gentry -
The Rich, The Powerful, The Educated, The Leaders -
Who no longer would accept The STATUS QUO!
The Difference?

THEY RISKED EVERYTHING -
THEIR REPUTATIONS, THEIR FORTUNES, THEIR LIVES!
TO CREATE A COMMON GOOD -
THAT WOULD BENEFIT ALL!

IT IS TIME TO RETURN TO THOSE THRILLING DAYS OF YESTERYEAR!

WITHOUT THE LOVE AND FEAR OF GOD - THERE IS NO AMERICA!

PEACE ... TOM.

RE: My - GOODYEAR EAGLES SUCK! -

J'nia Fowler

Yikes! The pocket book seem to get depleted regularly. Tires, gotta have em. Why do they make crap tires? Answer, in the olden days when you bought tires, you wanted the best. You wanted to be assured by the makers that your family would be safe if you bought the best tires so you didn't mind paying a bit more than usual. And the makers were proud of their product.Today, the makers know that you will fork over lots of moola for their crap tires because there is no longer any pride in what a company manufactures. They know you'll buy their junk on your credit card if need be and if there are issues like loss of life or limb you'll probably sue but that's ok with them because they have lots of money to pay their lawyers to keep you waiting and to blame your driving habits because their crap costs so little to make and the public in general is stupid (not you Tom) but in general anyway. And that's how modern business works. New is always better eh!!! Sorry to hear of your troubles with tires. Hugs, J'nia

J’NIA - WOW! You said a mouthful! And - both you and GLEN ‘nailed it!’

A Sense of Pride! The Identification of ‘Name Brand’ with QUALITY!

“We don’t make no Freakin’ Junk!” Gives me an idea for a title -
‘The Prideless Corporation.” Have thought about it before, but never took time to put it into words.

American Manufacturers - once upon a time, they all made really Good Stuff.
Over a fifty or sixty year most recent history, this concept waned into a mass attempt at Planned Obsolescence. More to follow! Have to leave here and start writing it.

Thank you for such poignant comments! Yankee-Doodle Tom.

By the fact that I am reading this I can assume that Mr.Keegan never responded, exactly why our country and its long time businesses are a mess. Sadly Tom they just don't care anymore like they did in the 50's, 60's and such when they had pride and having a good reputation and name mattered. They used to want a lifetime customer, now they only care to "get you" once and take advantage! Good luck from a Michelin man :)
9/5/2009

GLEN - Thank you for commenting. Did you miss reading the opening or intro? I did state that I decided not to wait, before posting. My reasoning being that if I could WARN just one person from making this mistake, it made sense to do so, rather than allowing Mr. Keegan a ‘Grace Period.’

Both you and J’NIA ‘nailed it!” - A Sense of Pride!
The Identification of ‘Name Brand’ with QUALITY!
“We don’t make no Freakin’ Junk!”

I have winter and summer tires by Fulda, had those in my other car too, best buy ever. over 35.000 miles on both of them and looking new. They are from Germany.
But you have also in Europe expensive Pirelli, Michelin, ect, that will set you back an indecent quantity of money and that aren't worth a s**t.

Georg

GEORG - never heard of FULDA over here.

The old adage - "you get what you pay for" does not ring true with these GY EAGLE tires -

If their warranty is only 40,000 and they know they WILL wear out - then, their price should be about HALF of what you pay for tires with 60-70,000 warranty!

Peace CUZ ... TK

What a terrible experience for you Tom. And what an "eye opener" I recently had to replace my two front tires (Michelines) due to what's called weather splits. The tires had full tred but one or two blow outs were waiting to happen. I was told this is caused by mostly short short driving trips. So much for consolidating trips to town to save on gas. As high as it is the cost of gas would have been cheaper. Also they emptied all four tires and replaced the air with something but I can't remember what it's called. Life does get tedious doesn't it.

MARCIA - I’m no expert, but been driving 51 years - never heard of any ‘weather splits’ - most tires today are ‘All-Weather’ - unless you have special driving needs because of a constant cold/hot climate.

Most tires today are Steel-Belted Radials - whenever those belts FAIL - usually there is either a ‘bubble’ in the sidewall or even metal ‘needle-like’ spikes sticking out of the tire. This should not happen, especially if the treads are still in good condition, i.e. still deep.

Also, have never heard of putting anything BUT air in a tire. I’d suggest you write to MICHELIN and get an answer from the ‘horse’s mouth’ -

DEALERS may tell you anything!

The other lesson I learned is - ALWAYS get the the Road Hazard coverage - usually $20 bucks or less, per tire!

Good Luck - Tom.

RE: J’nia’s - God on Trial - the Movie - 2008 -

J'NIA - good review - even better poem!

So 'they' found God Guilty - What could be the final Sentence?

BANNING HIM?

Our illustrious Supreme Court Judges ALREADY DID THAT!

BUT - just who suffers? Tom.

by J'nia Fowler (author) at 9/9/2009 6:34:32 AM

Thank you for reviewing my ode. I cane away from the film, which we got at the library, with a lot of questions. And then, and still without answers to some I believe that God did not break the covenant, they did. In addition, they worship the God of the Law. Catholics for the most part worship the sacrificial God and Christian protestants worship the resurrected God yet it is all the same God. Just a little bit confusing. Hugs, J'nia


09-10-09 - 8:35 am - Hi J'nia Fowler:

J'NIA - welcome to the club, DOLL! The human race! Ever since the Dawn of Creation - Man/Wo-man - has pondered this question. NONE has the ‘corner on the market!’

In some sense, God is like a Poem - the Author expresses a Feeling - some Get it - some Don't. Each individual Mind garners from it a different perspective. Some see the Joy, or Sadness, but miss the Irony. Some see the Rhyme, but not the Reason. Some say - "That's Great!" - Others say - "That Sucks!"

Those that do - GET IT - form a clique, and write glowing, flowering, sweet comments - those that don't want to miss the Boat. or the Bus! They Like - You, or the Poem, or the Concept, or God ... and don't want to be thrown in with the UN-believers, and take a chance on Burning in Hell - being Labeled as - Atheists, or Agnostics ... or even worse - DEVILS!

I was born and raised in - The Holy Roman CATHOLIC Church - and didn't learn until much later, that catholic merely means UNIVERSAL - It had somehow spread (probably with the Roman Army) across the globe.

Although WE saw ourselves - 'Catholics' - as the "Only True Religion" - as being the very First Christians, and all other 'sects' were merely 'off-shoots.' Ergo - WE Must Be Right - DUH!

GOD has probably been on PROZAC for quite some time now!

"What Fools these mortals be!"

Peace - Dear Friend - Peace ... Tom.


----------------------------This is the reply: -----------------------

Hi Tom Hyland: Yes. God is way more than we can ever know and I've heard it said that we are an expression of His creativity. In other words, we are not the center of the universe. God is.

And hey! I never new that Catholic means universal. Makes sense tho as the Emperor what's his face wanted the world, his world to worship Christ so he replaced the goddess Dianna with Mary and et voi la, the Catholic church.

BTB the Mormons think they have all the answers too. lol. hig bug, big hug, J'nia

Hi J'nia Fowler:

An old song title came to mind - so I googled it ...


Don Williams, I Believe in You Lyrics

Artist: Williams Don
Song: I Believe in You
Album: Don Williams - 20 Greatest Hits


I don't believe in superstars,
Organic food and foreign cars.
I don't believe the price of gold;
The certainty of growing old.
That right is right and left is wrong,
That north and south can't get along.
That east is east and west is west.
And being first is always best.

But I believe in love.
I believe in babies.
I believe in Mom and Dad.
And I believe in you.

Well, I don't believe that heaven waits,
For only those who congregate.
I like to think of God as love:
He's down below, He's up above.
He's watching people everywhere.
He knows who does and doesn't care.
And I'm an ordinary man,
Sometimes I wonder who I am.

But I believe in love.
I believe in music.
I believe in magic.
And I believe in you.

Well, I know with all my certainty,
What's going on with you and me,
Is a good thing.
It's true , I believe in you.

I don't believe virginity,
Is as common as it used to be.
In working days and sleeping nights,
That black is black and white is white.
That Superman and Robin Hood,
Are still alive in Hollywood.
That gasoline's in short supply,
The rising cost of getting by.

But I believe in love.
I believe in old folks.
I believe in children.
I believe in you.

But I believe in love.
I believe in babies.
I believe in Mom and Dad.
And I believe in you.


Kinda says it all - Don't it?

... as Larry Love used to say on radio ...

Peace - Love - and ... LOOOOOOOVE! TK.

RE: Randall D. BARFIELD’S Blog - THE THOUSANDS -

RANDY - I'M WITH YOU!

What ever happened to the MILLION-MAN MARCH?
Did it do any good? We need MILLIONS & MILLIONS of American citizens to WAKE UP & GET INVOLVED! 100 MILLION EMAILS - 100 MILLION PHONE CALLS - 100 MILLION LETTERS -

ENOUGH CROOKEDNESS IS ENOUGH!

The FAB 545 - Congress, Supreme Court, & Pres. -
THEY ARE THE PROBLEM!

People in POWER - have only one goal - to STAY IN POWER! NONE of them wanted to prosecute BUSH & his cronies - WHY? Because IF they did - later, a NEW BUNCH might come after them in the same way, for all their AVARICE & LYING, and DOUBLE-DEALING!

We need Citizen Representatives - NOT Permanent Power-Hungry Personal-Agenda Repeaters!

Peace - Tom.

Exactly why I like and listen to Country Western songs; almost all of them are poems, and they rhyme, too!
