Hitler/Trump possessing the same traits…#250

Donald Trump’s destroying America.  He has tempted his followers into rebellion; they have achieved this with Trump stoking the fires of hatred and discrimination.    His thoroughness to deny the reality of defeat has threatened our democracy.  The Germans also argued that they had been stabbed in the back by liberals, socialist, communist and Jews.  That they had victory jerked from them.  This is how Donald Trump thinks today about the 2020 election, is he getting his teaching from Germany?

Trump is an evil man, possessing the same traits as Adolph Hitler. He is a sadist, without regard for human life.  He enjoys inflecting damage and suffering, the bullying, the violence, the destruction, frightening people, humiliating people, getting revenge and the like, is the behavior of  Donald Trump.

Hurting people makes Trump feel good about himself. It makes him feel powerful and in control.  It proves that you have been forced to notice him, Donald J. Trump, is the author of your despair and master of your world.

“I have won the election, and I am never going to leave the White House”

 Are we still talking about Trump?  He has lost the race to the White House, Joe Biden knows how to walk the walk and talk the talk.  I cannot believe that we are getting closer and closer to the final day and Trump is still holding on.  However, now Trump is trying to stay alive with his lawsuits.  Rudy Giuliani is being laughed out of every court room he enters. 

Trump wanted to disenfranchise millions of voters, without thought he would deprive a person or organization the privilege to vote.  Currently, I believe that Trump and his followers are beating a dead horse.  Trump is known to get upset if he does not get his way, like a child he pouts and hides in his room.  He has spoken to the American people a few times since the election; he is calm, reads from a script, he is not the Trump that reads until he cannot stand it and blows up.  I am beginning to believe they have him medicated.   

Then we have Russian President Vladimir Putin, whom I try to follow closely as he scares me; he is a dictator and that is why Trump admires him.   Putin said that he’s ready to work any American Leader, but still isn’t ready to recognize the election victory of Joe Biden.  He continued to say, “We will work with any person who will be given the trust of the American people.

In the mean time we must hold onto the hope of our future, we must, in America, fight the Covid-19 Virus.  We in America must accept the “new normal”, the loss of lives to a uncontrolled virus; rebuilding from job loss, learn to deal with rising cost of living.  We will have to fight to bring ourselves out of the darkness into the light.

A Right to have Rights…#241

Prejudices are alive and thriving within the borders of the United States of America. The blood of the first true American runs red upon the land that we hold scared, the American Indian.  I continue having a problem with the views of “immigration” in this country by the “descendants” of immigrates. These people are now citizens of this country by either birth or becoming a citizen after coming to the United States. The rhetoric has not changed throughout the years. It is like being ugly and poor, if you are not beautiful, rich and powerful your chances of getting into the “upper 1% club” is zero.

My father was born in 1903, he, his mother, grandmother  and their people the Southeastern Chickasaw’s were not recognized as American citizens until about 1940, by then he was married and had two children.  He was born in America, lived, worked and died in America, but he was almost 37 years-old.

In 1924, The Act governing Native Americans did not include those born before the effective date of the 1924 Act and it was not until the Nationality Act of 1940 that all born on U.S. soil were citizens; my father was thirty-seven years old before he was to be recognized as a “REAL AMERICAN CITIZEN”. Many Native Americans, who were granted citizenship rights under the 1924 Act, may not have had full citizenship and suffrage rights until 1948. My father’s right to be a citizen of the United States of American was granted to him by “Immigrates or the Descendants of immigrates”

I have to wonder what my father and those who came before him, those who were drove from their lands, walked the Trail of Tears, those who help build this country would have to say about how we look upon the way those in power, the people we voted into office are reacting to today’s immigration decisions, have they forgotten that we are all descendants of immigrates, your ancestors who came to this country and were welcomed with open arms.  They did not have to go over a wall or under one, their children were not taken away from them, some lost forever.

I believe we need to stop and think about how we look in the eyes of other countries, to people who may want to make America their home, are we moving forward or backward?  If Donald Trump is allow to sit upon his throne in the White House, how many more immigrates will fall to the wayside?  Immigrates built this country, Trump has twisted every law, the Constitution, to his favor and childlike behavior.  As Americans from all races, faiths and color, we need to take back our country, bring it back to the time when we stood at our borders with open arms for those in need, or those being persecuted by their own country.

This is only my opinion and mine alone, of one who watch their father being discriminated against when I was a child. A father who was not allowed, to walk down the same street next to a powerful white man. A father who worked hard to make a living with little education. A father who would take food off our table to give to someone passing through who was hungry and did not have a job. A father who would fight for all people, be understanding of differences, and fight against discrimination. My father, a True American!  Donald Trump is not, he is blight on this land!

Flying with Broken Wings…#239

Altered Senses

Existence, scene after scene, characteristic of life environment, genetics and promises that reveal nothing, the past descends like rain from the sky, washing away all dreams.  Phantoms of youth chanting within the soul, paths blocked; evil has spread across the landscape of a lifetime.  Loneliness limits love and happiness; boundaries set slow down the process of moving into the future…nevertheless, the future may be shrouded with abundant solitude from where there is no escape.  Rethink the future!

This Country is Grateful to Those Who Serve-a Poem…#237

architecture art clouds landmark

A Sacred Duty…

The old blind man down the road is dying, he is kind and good and the neighbors all know of his name.  They say, that after the war in Vietnam his Country he would not blame. Family and friends all gathered around him in his final hour.  I watch, as people would come and go their hands full of food and flowers.

His daughter arrived asking me to thank the neighbors for what they have done.  Then she tells me that the old man is holding on to life waiting for his Grandson. Her eyes filled with tears, you see my Son is in Afghanistan and we have not seen him for a year.  My father was in the military too, a pilot in Vietnam, he came home and for that, we were all blessed.  The medals on his walls are evidence of him being the best.

We had only spoken for a moment when the sound of sirens filled the air it gave us both, a scare.  The parade of cars pulled up close, doors opened; uniform men stepped out, all with a military flare. Behind them walked a young man straight and tall, wearing his Air Force Blues, said it all.   They say that he went to the bedside of his Grandfather, took his hand giving him a small box along with a sharp salute.  The young man was proud of his grandfather this was his last tribute.

In the box were the medals he himself had been given in Iraq and Afghanistan, “These are for you Papa and thank you for teaching me to be a man”.  They buried him in that sacred place called Arlington, his job as son, brother, father, grandfather, and the service to his Country at last was done.

Poetry-Waiting for the End…#234

Living under both fugitive and gracious light, living within walls that no longer make a home.  Living with assumptions in a world that scorns.  One cannot demand love; it leaves the seeker tired and alone. The heart is no longer inspired by life; it is dead it is made of stone.

Thirst for creativity, hours to feel un-whole, feeble, no power no control.   Troubled with no rest, walking upon the fallow ground, the fields like deserts, barren no heart no soul.  Youth has gone; strength is gone, one’s foremost self-lost in the past, haunted by what went before.

No music, not even the sound from a rustic flute.  The clouds of an obsessed storm in the sky, it groans with sadness.  Visions clear, to be mute would be golden.   No cares, wandering, nomadic, living from place, to place, another plane, the way is lost. Heart-weary, harsh, a dwelling a void, silence. 

Fear and fatigue consume, will the body die. Evidence is in the stillness of a stone heart, it has grown weary and cold.  The heart beats faster and faster, like a runaway train, sweeping through the soul.  The deep cut into the soul cannot heal. The night-wind blows through a whisper of silver hair, soon it will be dawn.  The night passed slowly. 

Another day under the leafless tree, dew lays upon the body, watching the Robin looking beneath for a worm.  Fall is here and the Robin will go south, soon a cold and frothy sea of white will cover the ground.  Death is welcomed, emptiness, the trembling are now all stilled; time is winding to a close.  Ashes will soon lay upon an icy shore, waiting for the melting ice to float them away.

Mason has crossed the “Rainbow Bridge”…#231

My loving baby, four-legged companion crossed the Rainbow Bridge Sunday, August 21, life will never be the same without this loving face. He got sick quickly and passed quickly, for that I am thankful. I will be gone for a few days, but I will return so stay tuned for the next chapter of my life. Mason loved and was loved by all who knew him.

Have fun my darling keeping up with your four legged cousins that have gone on before.

Love MaMa

This is a picture on the cover of a book I published just for me, I do not expect you to buy a copy, I just wanted you to his how sweet he could be with no-one is looking.

Mason Murphree January 31,2012 – August 21,2020

The Rainbows Bridge Poem
Rainbow Bridge.comJust this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water, and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together….

New GOP COVID Relief Bill Doesn’t Include More Stimulus Checks, Cuts Extra Unemployment Pay In Half…#230

Lobbyists
Yes, the Lobbyist are paying the people you vote for to vote for what big companies want. Your Representatives, House, Senate, collectively Congress they live well, have free health insurance and get paid to vote against you.

The last Stimulus relief Bill had hidden within its folds the following, what will be found out later about this stimulus approval, who or what will get a big check before the American people?

First Stimulus passed out hidden money when Americans were hungry, homes foreclosed, evicted for non-rent payment, the money the government hid could have helped shut down the Virus.

  1. Casinos were able to tap government loans.
  2. $25 billion in loans and loan guarantees reserved for the airlines.
  3. Trump extended terms of up to seven senior military leaders.
  4. Free video conference and phone calls for inmates.
  5. Harbor dredging: Lobbying for ports that need dredging work, like the one in Mobile, Ala., in Senate Appropriations Chairman Richard Shelby’s (R-Ala.) home state.
  6. Streamlining the approval process for sunscreen ingredients.
  7. Tax-preferred treatment to feminine-hygiene products.
  8. Temporary repeal of alcohol excise taxes for makers of hand sanitizer.
  9. A measure to promote sexual abstinence.
  10. Makers of over-the-counter drugs, won inclusion of a long-sought bill to change the federal approval process for new products.
  11. Aerospace giant Boeing Co., chief beneficiary of a $17-billion loan.
  12. $75 million each for the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities, which give grants to museums and artists.
  13. $7.5 million for the Smithsonian Institution.
  14. $25 million for the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C.
  15. $500-billion slush fund for corporations.

Top 50 Lobbying Spenders of 2016, we need to start standing alone and get rid of the people who lobby for special spending funds. Those in “bold” are questionable to me. My choice of possible necessary one’s is healthcare and mail services.  Unnecessary, approximately $108,000,000.  That money could go a long way toward “healthcare”.
