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.
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.
Uni-Que Uni-Verse (Poetry) - 6/4/2013 10:42:13 AM
You certainly are uni-niquey, in a quirky sort of way.
Vagabond Poet Philosopher (Poetry) - 5/31/2013 5:58:27 AM
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.
A Special Ingredient (Poetry) - 5/27/2013 6:12:19 AM

Ben Franklin Doppelganger Seeks American Asylum (Poetry) - 5/14/2013 8:17:30 AM
This is the rant of all rants. But, the truth in it shines through. I hope everyone reads this and fully understands what you mean.
I Feel So Impotent (Poetry) - 5/11/2013 11:28:42 AM
I like the rant better. You covered the territory very well. Now the job is to get rid of the mess and start over on better grounds so that everyone can have “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” without stepping on others' toes.

Americas Brand Name Material Shroud Conscious (Poetry) - 5/10/2013 11:58:44 AM
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.

How many have funked their boss by passing gas and quickly leaving them gasping.
Funk (Poetry) - 5/8/2013 12:13:02 PM
I love it when you're humorous. My wife hated that word, but it was okay to screw your boss and screw it in deeply. I never really understood the difference, but I enjoyed the result.
Brand Name European American Working Condition (Poetry) - 5/7/2013 7:39:01 AM
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
I guess we are going to run out of cheap labor and stay home more often.
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

God’s Children Miracle Needs Pedophilia Excommunication (Poetry) - 2/15/2013 5:46:14 PM
A GREAT write! Sadly to say, politics rules the day. The politics of the Vatican is just as ruthless, miserly and selfish as any other system.
Child abuse is inexcusable and those responsible should be punished by Law. There is a very fine line between the pious and the evil!
I thank you for bringing attention to this horror.

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.
My Last Posting Here At Authorsden (Poetry) - 2/13/2013 9:28:06 PM
These lines seem redundant, David. Why so much drama? The very act of the write promotes poetry's vice.

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.

See Shore Surf Sounds Of Winning Philosophy (Poetry) - 1/13/2013 12:37:54 PM
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.

Sail Oh Spirit Of Christmas (Poetry) - 12/14/2012 4:30:12 AM
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

Scrooge Politicians Would Destroy America (Poetry) - 12/2/2012 1:25:49 PM
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.

Powerful words David!
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.

Grover Norquist Republican Pledge Of Forevermore (Poetry) - 11/28/2012 8:20:35 AM
Shows how much our government elected officials are sucking on the money tit instead of representing their constituents. You are so right, it has to change. Our representatives should be voting their conscience and their knowledge, not where they get their money from.

Poetic Philosophy (Poetry) - 11/25/2012 12:21:36 PM
One man's philosophy is as good as any man's astronomy. I have real trouble fathoming the Big Bang theory, although that's all the evidence shows us mere humans at this time in history. Everything appears to be flowing outward at a page that would suggest that it all began in one small spot.

Great title, David, and nice alliteration, rhyme and 'image-phrases'. I liked 'alight', 'adrift', and 'ashore', was kind of looking for that last 'a' word.. Maybe abounds or applies or some such instead of rejuvenating. All in all, tranquil and serene.

Republican 10% Of An 47% Equation (Poetry) - 9/24/2012 11:08:16 AM
You have raised a lot of the right questions. Unfortunately, while most Americans spout patriotic claims of “freedom” and “opportunity”, inwardly they still have their deep-seated prejudices toward certain parts of society that they exclude. It is interesting how mobs form because most people are just sheeple and go along with the mob, justifying senseless behavior. It takes real courage to stand up and challenge mob mentality. I applaud you for that.

Your Holiness Pedophilia Is A Mortal Sin (Poetry) - 9/6/2012 12:21:55 PM
Ronald I agree that must churches have faults that as a Liberal Catholic I wish the Pope could take a stand in eliminate it within the Church. This is not an easy write for to bring it up means condemnation, but what is worse to stay silent as the Church has for centuries is to condone acceptance of a moral sin against our youth.
Your Holiness Pedophilia Is A Mortal Sin (Poetry) - 9/6/2012 9:15:14 AM
All churches, not just Roman Catholic, have deep secrets as part of their dogma that they do not reveal, that allows them to continue to practice what they consider, “freedom of religion.” Defined by the religion. The cult nature of most churches is the mystique that enables them to manipulate behavior in the leaders' behalf.

Franklin had gout. Best cure is to do without––food, that is. Guys like John McCain or the Holocaust victims who were starved, never get diabetes because their systems have become very efficient and they need little food to survive. They also live long. You have the will. Why don't you try it.
Legitimate Rape Is An Abomination (Poetry) - 8/22/2012 9:04:23 AM
It's been a long hard struggle for women, but reason will prevail. The world over many women still suffer under the thumbs of their loving spouses, churches, and institutions. But cracks in those barriers are opening and as the outcry to Akins's idiocy grows, we are learning the power of women to overcome their long-standing suffering under the misguided ignorance of men.
Legitimate Rape Is An Abomination (Poetry) - 8/21/2012 3:12:11 PM
I understand and agree with what you say about rape David. There is no such thing as legitimate rape in my mind. I would like to point out though, that most republicans, men and women, immediately demanded his resignation. This is not something Rebublican men as a group, approve of or agree with at all. It is dispicable. Thank you so much for your eliquent concern for womankind. Be well, Kathy

ALEC Conservative Corporate States of America Part 2 (Poetry) - 8/4/2012 8:18:36 PM
That was a good picture, they wanted a picture with me, wish I knew who they were, so I could post their names.
I debate if I should have written these two but I vent with poetry and try to open minds as I release frustration in seeing America in a downward spiral of a greater 90 10 radio divide. That a 95 to 5 Grand Canyon is approaching, and I know why the 5% need guns. The French revolution was started from French Aristocracy ignoring 95% of France. That people finally rebelled at the Bastille without many guns that French troops seeing the slaughter fought against repression.
I cannot believe that corporations

Free Speech Brand Of Scarlet Letters Rant Part 3 (Poetry) - 7/26/2012 11:05:05 AM
Mikii in ranting and venting, we let those things inside us that are festering and churning negativity out that is why it is often seen by others as poetry or verse with fangs. But in fact it is a release to get it out in the open and let some of the frustration out before we are destroyed from within. Do the problems go away, normally no, but we can be more positive with life.
I equate it to a volcano that keeps building pressure. One of two things must happen that it vents periodically to exist less threatening, or keep building and building without any release. That at some point it will blows itself up.
That is why sometimes a person that has become desolate and reclusive will ferment hatred to then commit very violent acts. That one person with love could stop by listening and let them rant without judging them, but guiding them, most people cannot relate to this concept. That most people once they do not fit THEIR mold, they will put Scarlet Letters on them with some kind of label that demeans them.
Free Speech Brand Of Scarlet Letters Rant Part 3 (Poetry) - 7/26/2012 6:11:06 AM
