Draconian Democracy Franklin Doppelganger Quotes (Article) - 6/10/2013 11:47:52 PM|
Well said David.... our freedom and liberty are in serious danger today at the hands of The DRMG (Democrat/Republican/Media/Government). Our Constitution insures our rights, not the government. History has taught us two things about democracy. 1. In a democracy the majority rules...However, the majority is not always right. That is why there is a constitution to protect our rights should the majority be wrong in their selection of the people to run the government. 2. No dictator, elected or unelected has ever been removed from office via a peaceful fair and honest election.

Perfect Rose Blossom (Poetry) - 11/17/2013 8:13:12 AM
A poet can turn a conservative into a liberal by opening his mind so that he can perceive things from many angles? If only it were that simple.

Perfect Rose Blossom (Poetry) - 11/14/2013 8:54:01 AM
A rose by any other name is a poet. I like the one about falling into the holy Swiss cheese. Sure glad I don't eat that stinky stuff. I much prefer cheddar… Must be a cheese head.

Sword Of Truth (Poetry) - 11/13/2013 7:49:53 AM
You are right, "We the people," declared free to "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness," and then usurped by the corporate elite who now "buy" our government and control every aspect of our lives.
Some constitutional changes are in order so that power will no longer gravitate towards money and gravitate towards fairness for all.

UniVersAl Sphere of Triangles (Poetry) - 10/27/2013 3:55:03 AM
Like life and mathematics it gets more complicated in each stage. I believe the overall thrust of this piece is about the ability to change and grow as we get older. Thus the difficult to visualize concept of ever-multiplying triangles. Now that made my head swim a little. Not being something that most of us consciously do, adaptability to ever-changing life is what we do if we are successful at it on our many paths. Those who do not adapt will die, or not progress. Success being a subjective experience, there are many different levels of it. This is what I take from your very different poem here David. Bob

America Must Fail Washington Policies (Poetry) - 10/12/2013 12:30:48 PM
What is so transparently clear to you and to me is somehow mysteriously muddy as mud to others.
America Must Fail Washington Policies (Poetry) - 10/12/2013 11:06:08 AM
Very well written and quite true. Relegating government activity to the private sector is guaranteed to fail if examined carefully… Which it wasn't.
Our university (government-funded, but very politically run) tried outsourcing many functions, not heeding my analyses which showed that they would cost more and provide less, but in several cases went back to hiring staff to do the job over the long haul rather than continual changing of politically correct out source sources.

Universal Dimensions (Poetry) - 9/25/2013 3:07:38 PM
Why in any rational universe would we have never existed? Is time a pseudonymn of Gods? Lucan said that death is the beginning of a long life. You grapple with such large questions David. We exist so therefore God exists. Pretty simple in my mind. I used to think complicated. The simpler answers seem simple and not so complex. I love a piece that inspires thought David. This does it very well for me. Bob

I Say Unto Thee NSA (Poetry) - 9/13/2013 7:38:03 PM
I am in agreement my friend. Being one of those who sends emails to the White House occasionally, I would say that, I can stand being ignored and/or deleted, but never will I take being spied upon or persecuted, like these powerful government reps seem to like doing. The giant behemoth of huge government is a constant danger to us all. Government must be starved of it's food (tax) so it will shrink. At one time the federal government was funded by the states and did not have the power to tax. I think it's time to go back to a system such as that. Do away with the income tax and let the states only have the power to tax. Only then will this huge beast become a servant instead of a master. Make them beg at the doors of the states. I like your passion David. Bob

Cuddle Me Close Poet (Poetry) - 8/31/2013 12:54:37 PM
Indeed, the power of poetry over the 1000's of years helps us make sense of the world. It has the power to change lives and see the truth in such a way that politicians have always feared the poet. from Plato's fear of it, to Pablo Neruda's hard hitting truth, thus his exhile from Chile....

Shakespearean Seduction (Poetry) - 7/18/2013 7:27:36 AM
Shakespeare's poetry may not have survived if it not been acted out on the stage where actors could enhance the emotion in the words and create fantasies that we all associate with Shakespearean work.

God Pray For Far Right Conservatives (Poetry) - 7/17/2013 1:56:56 PM
Has hate gone so far Right in America and the world that another generation is now caste the wreak havoc in Right wing retribution by using judgmental condemnation hysteria that will cast the stones to start the annihilation of millions of God's innocent children. That there crime was being born into the wrong religion, the wrong color, into the wrong country, the wrong social class, and the wrong families; where they are condemned at birth to be aborted forevermore of human dignity, in never being able allowed to exist with mutual respect that is due to ALL God's children. Oh, condemn this poet as being obscene, to ever think that words could heal nations, and our neighborhoods by creating open lines of communication in love destroying hate's ignorance in Scarlet Letter labeling.
God Pray For Far Right Conservatives (Poetry) - 7/17/2013 7:38:45 AM
Poets can pray for pretty much whom they want. You make some very fine points here. Unfortunately, Demigod Far Right Conservatives are too caught up in their own ignorance to see the value of liberal thinking.
Carnation That Wanted To Be A Perfect Rose (Poetry) - 7/12/2013 5:14:45 PM
This is just so beautiful David. The way it ends is delicate and regretful. This one had me from beginning to end. Hopeful and beautiful, dark with the smell of death and perfumed corner bathrooms. A gem. Bob
Graveyard Of Electronics (Poetry) - 7/12/2013 5:05:56 PM
You know it's fortunate that poetry is a medium that can survive the slow and fast vehicles of change that forever change the landscape and us. The only drawback I can see is that it adds an ephemeral quality to words such as come from inside us. Like our culture of more and more, feed me more, even great words fade quickly into the mushy landscape of temporary thrills. I'm not sure those words will survive. They may be crushed by the sheer weight of other words. These could be my own dark musings I guess. Change happens though. With or without us. Anyway that's what I got out of this David. Bob
Graveyard Of Electronics (Poetry) - 7/11/2013 12:51:14 PM
A good summary of the poet's view of the half-life of electronic products. It seems to get shorter with every generation. However, I have been quite productive with 10-year-old computers and 20-year-old software that is much easier to use than the latest newfangled whizbang. I use my 20 inch multi scan CRT monitor parallel with the flat-panel for a couple of years. After I retired the CRT, I realized that ways it was much better than the flat panel. But not as good as the flat panel I'm using now.
One thing is for sure, change happens. And if we don't change with it, it'll change without us. When I gave away my 1973 Chevy Monte Carlo, I had retained the old eight track A.M. radio, even though I replaced the radio long time before with an\determiner AM/FM cassette radio.

Lenovo Computer Hinge Malfunction (Poetry) - 6/5/2013 11:18:26 AM
Quite humorous and enlightening about the cheapness of cheap laptops. I would recommend an Apple, but I know that is not a affordable solution.
Some transparent “Scotch” tape from 3M holds down the power button on my $30,000 electric wheelchair. At least it still works.
You could duct tape it shut and chuck it in the nearest river (the Texas Colorado?) But that is no solution either. I suggest you continue to handle it carefully so that it will not rest in pieces before you do.

This is a keeper. By creating a whole new persona, you are free to create a life that you can live freely, without dependence upon Teutonic corporatism. I admire your tenacity and willingness to reach out in spite of the many obstacles you face.
I would say you should use “puny” instead of “punny" if you really mean that the word should not be interpreted as “funny.” I see nothing puny about your approach to your poetry.

I hope people are reading you because you are saying a great deal about how Americans view things. I'm proud to say I never displayed or wore brand-name products… And don't consider it to be a bargain for anything we get from overseas.
I do, however, own Apple products with high prices. I only wish they could make them here for what they're charging.

Words we should heed and live by.
What Words (Poetry) - 5/5/2013 7:58:51 AM
“Only words can break a heart… And only words can mend it again.”
You have expressed what most people don't realize. It is not the fact that we have children to carry on our destiny or that we fight wars and give our lives to causes for others as well as ourselves that is remembered. Our written words, our constructions, our artwork, and our music live and beyond us to teach and inspire future generations we will never know. To have lived and talked a lot means nothing. To have lived and written a lot means something because, if the words ring true, they will travel down the ages to others in the distant future.
But drivel is drivel, and drivel will die along with its writer.
What Words (Poetry) - 5/5/2013 4:12:10 AM
It seems to happen every time, David. A thoughtful, intelligent composition leaves your readers breathless...and wordless. The inverse rule at work. Very well done.
European American Made Bangladesh Garments (Poetry) - 4/28/2013 10:42:09 AM

European American Made Bangladesh Garments (Poetry) - 4/28/2013 8:33:19 AM
This poet tells it like it is with great authority. And I like that. I often wonder what happened to those idealists in the sixties who saw what their parents were doing and rejected it––conspicuous consumption. Why is shopping the greatest American pastime, surpassing baseball by megabucks? Why is it that we all want “bargains” for “designer brands” when it is meaningless to have a hundred pairs of shoes or fifty shirts we don't wear but bought because we were shopping and they were “on sale.”
Who invented this insanity and why? Why should so many people suffer feeding our greed? I don't know. We need to wake up. Your poem helps illustrate that well.

Pope Francis Enlightened Prayer (Poetry) - 3/14/2013 2:20:39 AM
This is powerful poem that will go around the world much like our Pope.
There is no contest to who is the most humble person who ever walked the earth. Jesus is God who became man for our benefit. The Pope has vowed to be humble and not take a salary. Yet he has powers that even a King or modern day president cannot hold a candle to. So whoever said Rome fell? I think the Romans just moved the power towards the light of Jesus and are just at the fringes on conquering the world with love, grace and hope for all of mankind. Amen

I have enjoyed your unique take on liberalism from the Benjamin Franklin view. I don't blame you, the Authors Den is too expensive for what it provides. I am not on and will not be on Facebook, so I won't see you there. I have had my own website since 1997, and, while it doesn't receive many hits, it is an inexpensive blessing. There are many places where you can establish your own website at low cost.
Just open each of your poems here. Highlight the poem, copy it, and then paste it to a Word or text document on your computer and then save it by its name in a folder of your poems. Most computers have the ability to make a CD. Buy a CD and put your poems on it. Or, if you have a flash or backup drive, copy your poems to that, too.
Good luck with your writing and publishing.
Also fired for my views,

Victoria you are a member with me at American Artmosphere HeArt on Facebook that is where I will post and Stillwater.
Yes Erin it is drama and frankly I have lost that American Dream so I will stake a small space in Facebook and people can ask me to be members that can see what I write and they can post there things as a family
Plus I need to write and worry about a book and then people can buy it to see my works. That the idea of paying $120 a year, and have people make money off a zillion adds is frankly disconcerting. I rather post that $120 hosting my own site.
Last of all the comments were not there, my fault 90%, but the hits were going down, and down, where at times it was 150. That way seven years ago.
I will pay for a bronze or free membership to mostly stop in and see some of the greatest writers in the world here at Authorsden.
I am tired and been sleeping most of the day away, I just need a break from it all, yes Erin it is drama, and it is called life.
I cannot even get an answer from the people here how much they would charge me to put all my data on CD, I will pay for it, that will be worth the price.
Damn I am down again got to go to sleep there I can have my American Dream.

Alight Whisper Salutation Congratulations (Poetry) - 2/7/2013 8:39:13 AM
We can see it in wolf packs, lion prides, and chimpanzee groups, as well as throughout the animal kingdom––the hierarchy. That is what keeps some humans in demeaning roles or banished from society because it's in our genes to belittle or demean our fellow people, either by demonizing them and calling them names, or ignoring them altogether.
I agree with you that it's time that we become enlightened and give everybody a level playing field.

Try this one: Sally shucks sea shells by the seashore.
The Constitution was written at a time when the colonists were near war with the King over taxation without representation. The Constitution was written with the idea that amendments, like the First Amendment, would update the document to meet the particular needs of the people at that time.
We need to rewrite or amend the Constitution to meet our current needs and not those of the past. Unfortunately, we got a bunch of people in Congress funded by big money who want to keep us back in 1776.

Poetic Toilet (Poetry) - 12/23/2012 6:05:11 AM
Excuse the %4#& but after all MB said I was obscene to write like this that poetry today is grounds for Termination. It is only in De-Termination of my Free Speech right to express myself with verbal guns and using vocal bullets that I can exist living in that American dream. Yes, most Conservatives will put this 100% guilt trip on Liberals being the root cause of America's degradation denigration disintegration, but the truth is all the Moderates and Liberals have been purged, leaving only total Conservative/Progressives ideologist stagnancy of inept corrupt bureaucracy that is Incorporation our Government into the Conglomerate Conservative States of America. Where “We the corporation” rights displace “We the people” rights. That employees today are again enslaved with invisible yokes demanding GPS 24/7 NRA monitors in stand your ground against Liberal Free Speech that today America terminates those that dare question 1% authority.
Is this radical to think that people can own their government by an election process that excludes the corporate might equation of sovereign rulers, who use tyranny with iron wills, to economically segregate America. This nation was founded on a 100% principle that equality had no class distinction. Yet, today politicians fight and demand laws that discriminate against those less affluent. That they have no standing within their 10% America that segregates its entitlements with golden parachutes, while a Middle Working Class is again is used for economic wars that use menial, below the cost of living, labor.
Am I right, no I am left to be wrong; for in Free Speech there is no Right solution, nor in facts, a Left solution, but where a common solution under interactive communication must be found.

Wish I Might See The American Dream
Wish I might, wish upon divine hope, wish in this American dream
That Democrats and Republicans could hug each other tight in dreams
That fiscal cliffs will not divide a nation in 10% Scrooge entitlement dreams
That America needs its Tiny Tim Middle Class present for future dreams
That America is not a Conglomerate “We the Corporation” elite dream
That America is not made for Demigods, who rule with sovereign dreams
That America is about homeless and downtrodden being able to have dreams
That America’s wealth in real estate, property, and processions eliminate dreams,
For even the homeless born here in poverty deserve the rights to the American dream.
Why is this thought so repulsive to some that Christmas creates hope,
That Jesus must be white, have a crew cut, and be this Corporate symbol
That make Corporations human while the pillage as CEO robbing hoods
Bankrupting businesses raking in employee retirements as entitlements
Oh, the shame of Wall Street’s Christmas bankrupting bonuses
How low the 1% have gotten to destroy Christmas for so many in greed.
Sorry, had to vent my Free Speech rant

Boehner's crocodile tears while complaining about the terrible jobs he had to do in his youth made me sick. Obama's caving into big coal and oil and prolonging our dependence on these dirty, destructive forms of energy, is also to blame. Our government has been taken over by corporate interests that remain hidden behind the scenes. Their lump of coal should come in the form of bankruptcy for all their shifty enterprises.

In A Papal Miracle Excommunicate Pedophilia (Poetry) - 11/29/2012 7:27:51 AM
We have to face what is morally wrong. I would not accuse you or blame you in any way for pointing out this important travesty. The church has a convenient copout for this type of “sin.” Priests simply have to pray to their god for forgiveness, and it is granted.
In reality, the only forgiveness is getting away with it. Some probably even are so callous as to think nothing of it. That is why we have to place the blame squarely and prosecute. Because only then will some priests see the error of their ways.
