Inside many thoughts, hide other thoughts, appearing as halos to our minds. - Starman

 

What are you angry about,

Seething, boiling over over,

White anger spewing forth,

Question yourself it is over?

 

Four more years of idiotics?

If freedom wins in November,

The NAZI regime must resign,

Free America, 911 remember.

 

This is not a logical way to go,

Impossible to continue anyway,

It is our window of opportunity,

Here is our chance to fix USA.

 

Re-discovering our possessions,

Indian-like, our powerful instincts,

Leadership sailed us to success,

Posse chasing Googlesque links.

 

Diabolical plan to humiliate us,

Smacking with deadly blows,

America is on the ropes,

We have never felt so low.

 

Like those bad-ass outlaws,

Butch Cassidy & Sundance,

Our homage to success,

Taking a gun-blazin’ chance!

 

Our duality nonsense all,

Mass murder/suicide bus,

Myriad ways apocryphal ,

Woe is disassembling us,

 

“Good people doing evil”,

Dr. Steven Weinberg says,

“This takes religion”, so...

Pointless a universe today.

 

Grandly I redesigned me,

Reasonable men reason,

Plucked vibrating strings,

Mere melodies in season.

 

Ziggy’s best observation:

We’ll need your antidote,

Mr. Chef, not your recipe,

Belatedly, our death note.

 

Alas, USA we are finished,

In failing our elliptical orbit,

A cosmological genius,

Will write our final obit.

 

We needed to administer wisely,

Govern the lands with symmetry,

Now shuffle the card deck again,

Earth: The 38th G8’s geometry.

 

In religion and politics the fuzzier the logic the better. The man in the black hood is holding the invisible gun to your head if you dare to question the accepted authority of consciousness and imagination and images they create for you, which are not seen as mind control, but faith in the ideology and dogma of the culture and consciousness that require neither proof nor debunking. Pay particular attention to your dreams. Without them life is hopeless. Steer clear of the dream-killers. Don't be afraid to fail! Swallow your pride and dare to live your dreams, one by one, till your Earth and Heaven become one. --- Starman

ROCKIE ... WELL STATED!

I AM AGAINST - BOTH PARTIES! BOTH CANDIDATES! AS PER USUAL, THE CONTROLLING 'RICH' OFFER US THE CHOICE OF 'THE LESSER OF TWO EVILS' ...

I WILL VOTE FOR SOME 'OTHER' THIRD PERSON ... IT MATTERS NOT WHETHER MALE OR FEMALE ... PROGRESSIVE - GREEN - LIBERTARIAN -

Geometry or geophysicality aside, people need guns and grenades like they need incurable disease... putting munitions barons permanently out of business, both locally and globally, would go a long way to solving our problems... you've digressed with panache on the entire mish-mash... but instead of trying to unite heaven and earth, keeping them in perspective might better serve our purposes. You are right about living your dreams, except for the fact that so many of them turn into nightmares... selectivity and discernment also serve you well, when putting things into perspective. Provocative piece, professionally penned.

Ron's pea brains is overloaded methinks. If Hussein gets four more years we are dead ducks. He HATES this country and its values.
Reviewed by Ronald Hull 6/10/2012
My pea brain did not understand nine tenths of what you just wrote, but I sense a level of negativity that just isn't so. We are in a recession that is taking entirely too long to get out of because there are so many opposing viewpoints and very few real solutions. However, if we just do nothing and don't fly off the handle things will continue to get better. They always have in spite of our propensity to fight over everything. People will go on inventing and people go on buying what they're inventing. That will make us happier, but the economy will recover.
