Rushing Through the Day! By L. Don Oliver
I had no time for family, I had no time to pray; I had no time for the youth, Rushing through the day;
I had no time for the needy, Yet, I found plenty of time to play; I had no time for the sick, Rushing through the day;
I had no time for the elderly, What more is left to say; Busy with my own life, Rushing through the day;
When I reached the Pearly Gates, I asked; "Lord, what shall I do?"; God replied as he closed the gates, "I have no time for you";

TODAY'S POLITICS: YOU CAN SIT ON THE LEFT KNEE - YOU CAN SIT ON THE RIGHT KNEE AND NEVER HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT "MISTER IN BETWEEN", BECAUSE HE HAS BEEN RENDERED IMPOTENT!
The Herd Mentality!
The term herd mentality is the word herd, meaning "group of animals", and mentality, implying a certain frame of mind. However the most succinct definition would be: "how large numbers of people follow in certain directions at the same times and never care where they are being led".
Herd behavior is distinguished from herd mentality because it applies to all animals, whereas the term mentality implies a uniquely human phenomenon. Herd mentality implies a fear-based reaction to peer pressure which makes individuals follow in order to avoid the feeling of being "left behind" from the group. Herd mentality is also sometimes known as "mob mentality". Actually, there is little difference between herd behavior and herd mentality when it comes to Politics!!
The Herd Roundup!
Large numbers of cattle live in a semi-wilderness state on the open range (suburbia) and are left to graze, mostly untended, for much of the time. In many cases, different ranchers (elitists/government) have formed "associations" (Special Interests - both, Democratic/Republican)) and graze their cattle together on the same range (Liberal Colleges/Universities). In order to later determine the "ownership" of these animals, they are marked with a distinctive brand (Social Security Number), applied usually while the cattle are still young calves. The primary cattle breed seen on the open range is the Caucasian Peon, descended from the original European Caucasian Peon imported in the 16th century, though other breeds of cattle were also imported, including the more hardier African Conscript (Slaves), Hispanic Illegals (undocumented workers? - mainly Mexican) and Asian breeds to increase profits (votes/taxes)!
In order to find young calves for branding (brainwashing), and to sort out mature (Middle Class) animals intended for market, ranchers hold a roundup, every year during April. A roundup requires a number of specialized skills on the part of Progressive cowboys (Elitists/Politicians) and horses (Biased Media). Individuals who separate tax paying cattle from the herd require the highest level of skill and ride specially trained "cutting" horses (Biased Media), trained to follow the movements of cattle, capable of stopping and turning faster than other horses (Unbiased Media). Once the cattle are sorted, most cowboys are required to rope young calves and restrain them to be branded and (in the case of some male calves) castrated. Often it is also necessary to restrain older cattle, who have out lived their usefulness (reaching Social Security age) and have become a burden on the ranchers and no longer are profitable. These older cattle are eventually driven to glue factories!
A large number of horses (Biased Media) are needed for a roundup. Each cowboy requires several fresh horses (Media Outlets) in the course of a day's work. Horses themselves are also rounded up. It is common practice for young foals to be born of tame (brainwashed) mares, but allowed to grow up "wild" in a semi-wilderness state on the open range. There are also "uncompromising" herds, often known as Mustangs (Grass root Movements). Both types are rounded up, and the animals tamed (brainwashed), a process called horse breaking, or "bronco-busting", usually performed by Progressive cowboys who specialize in manipulating horses. In some cases, extremely brutal methods are used to tame horses, and such animals tended to never be completely reliable (Tea Party). However, the cowboys became aware of the need to treat animals in a more progressive (Manipulating) fashion and modified their horse training methods (Adjusted Marxist Socialism), often re-learning techniques used by their predecessors, particularly those of the Marxist Socialist tradition. Horses trained in this altered progressive fashion are more reliable and useful for a wider variety of tasks; such as, herding the cattle into an urban environment until they are ready for the "Slaughter House".
The cattle are contented as long as the ranchers furnish them their every need!
For those of you that are concerned about future (programmed) tax paying cattle - Let not your insignificant heart be troubled - They will be created, with altered genes, by artificial means in a Laboratory!

Martin Luther King Jr. Day!
I Heard the Robin Sing! by Optimistic Oriole!
When I was the innocent one, One morning in early spring; No thought of true reason, I heard the Robin sing;
He sang his sweet song of life, Of hope, faith, and charity; He sang of his everlasting wish, For a World in perfect harmony;
He sang his precious song, For conflict to never start; Then came the makers of hate, And tore all his dreams apart;
Like a forgotten soul, Forlorn in a castle keep; In the darkness of night, I heard the Robin weep;
We did not get there with you,
But, you paved the way with care; One day we will cross that Mountain, And find you abiding there;
I wish you a happy Holyday, I wish you a happy Holyday, I wish you a happy Holyday, and a Merry New Year;
Definition of Holy: "Worthy of absolute devotion"!
LET THE SECULARISTS AND THE ATHEISTS CALL IT THE "HOL(I)DAY SEASON" AND I WILL CONTINUE TO CALL IT THE "HOL(Y)DAY SEASON"!
The Holyday (Cristmas) Tree! By L. Don Oliver
Nineteen hundred and forty six, In the year of our Lord, To purchase a great northern pine, Our family could ill afford;
Our parents blaming no one, For our increasing Spartan lot; Saying a prayer of gratitude, for everything we've got;
It was after thanksgiving, Daddy and I went into the woods; To find the best southern pine, Anticipation described our moods;
Finding the best tree there, Daddy cut it at it's base; Saying, "Thank you, Oh! Lord", "For your infinite redeeming grace";
The scrawny tree standing forlorn, In the corner of our vacant living room, It's limbs outstretched and begging; Only added more to our present gloom;
When Mama gazed upon it, A tear came to her eye; Saying, "It can only get better", "That is, if we only try";
Alas, the times were tough, Our budget was extremely tight; Few extras that we could buy, Even a string of Holyday (Christmas) lights;
Many strands of colored paper, Cut and pasted into rings; They were entwined together, And wrapped around the wings;
Several strings of popcorn strung, Painted pine cones tied around; Adding to the Holyday (Christmas) Tree, All the what-nots to be found;
Red, White, Blue crochet doilies, Some crocheted with all three; Lovingly placed in strategic spots, All around the Holyday (Christmas) Tree;
Many multi-colored cloth remnants, cut into various strands; All tied to the tree limbs, Where bare needles demand;
Thin strips from an old white sheet, Icicles they were to be; Candy canes hung with care, All around the Holyday (Christmas) Tree;
When some candy canes went missing, The tree looked so forlorn; Mama would replace them all, On each and every morn;
A single crocheted Angel, Crocheted for everyone to see; Crocheted by Mama's loving hands, And placed on top of the tree;
Scenes with reverent views, All colored in crayon shades; Standing there we all gazed at; The transformation we had made;
Mama adjusted the Holyday (Christmas) Tree, Until it was standing right; Daddy played his worn guitar, And we all sang "Silent Night";

When Truth Dies! By L. Don Oliver
I can feel it, But, I can't see it, But, I know its there; Among the gathering dust, There in a pile of rust, Saying to all, beware;
Counting stars in the sky, That often run and hide, From reality's awaiting fate; Compromising the guise, Of those Who were not wise, And filling them with hate;
The Cabals of Glut, They're prone to strut, Displaying their ill gotten gain; The truth that they deceive, Trying to make us believe, It was Abel who slew Cain;
When the real truth dies, By propagandized lies, The people feel the pain; The children that were born, Who were too eagerly scorned, Their trust was all in vain;

Reconstructing the road and bridges to "The Global Plantation":
NOTHING IN THE HUMAN ENDEAVOR JUST HAPPENS, IT IS ALWAYS PLANNED!
COMMUNITARIANISM (UN AGENDA 21) IS THE MODERN CONCEPT OF COMMUNALISM AND COLLECTIVISM!
Communitarianism is an ideology that emphasizes the connection between the individual and the community. That the community will be the new family unit; but, it can also be understood in a far wider sense of interaction of a geographical location (corralling ruralites into an urban environment) for an easier control of the people!
Though the term communitarianism is of 20th-century origin, it is derived from the 1840s term communitarian, which was coined by Goodwyn Barmby to refer to one who was a member or advocate of a "communalist" society. The modern use of the term is a redefinition of the original sense (Communalism/ Collectivism). Many communitarians trace their philosophy to earlier thinkers (Friedrich Hegel/Karl Marx). The term is primarily used in two senses:
"Philosophical communitarianism" considers classical liberalism, (Communalism/ Collectivism), to be ontologically (Reality) and epistemologically (critical thinking) as "inconsistent", and opposes it on those grounds. Unlike classical liberalism, which construes communities as originating from the voluntary acts of pre-community individuals, it emphasizes the role of the community in "defining and shaping" (brainwashing) individuals (to this new Ideology). Communitarians believe that the value of community is not sufficiently recognized in liberal theories of Social Justice. (Out with the Old and in with the New)!
"Ideological communitarianism" is characterized as a *radical centrist ideology that is often marked by leftism on economic issues and moralism or conservatism (Compassionate Conservatism) on social issues. It usually refers to the Responsive Communitarian movement of Amitai Etzioni and other philosophers. (Presidents George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton (who is a fan of Etzioni), George W. Bush and Barrack Obama are advocates of "Ideological Communitarianism" in various forms.)
The terms radical center, radical middle or radical centrism describe a philosophy as well as an associated political movement and position on the political spectrum. Adherents of this philosophy claim to improve policy and general politics by not harboring a bias toward the precedence of either, Capitalism or The State, as can be characterized by right-wing politics and left-wing politics, respectively.
Various groups have adopted radical center as a term to describe a philosophy which includes their belief that, in affirming the core principles involved on both sides of a dilemma, the dilemma or disagreement can be rendered moot. The terms radical center and radical middle are often used interchangeably, although the former more often refers to a political movement (Tea Party) and the latter to a political philosophy (Individualism versus Collectivism)). The latter is being used by the Communitarians (both parties) to reflect an emphasis on epistemic virtue (critical thinking), by creating planned dilemmas, in an attempt to attract the Middle.
As a relatively grassroots movement, especially in the United States, there is no definitive statement of radical middle politics. A proposed recurring theme, however, might be the use of "Misrepresentation of Individual Choices", as is often the case with communitarianism. It can be said that the radical middle or center is an ideology broadly questioning the ideas, principles and values of "PROGRESSIVISM" (both parties).
THERE HAS BEEN A CONCERTED EFFORT BY BOTH, THE LEFT AND THE RIGHT TO CONTROL THE MIDDLE! THE ONLY IDEOLOGY BEING USED BY EITHER SIDE IS, "PROFITISM"!

United Nations Agenda 21's Lebensraum?
WHEN YOU CHURN MILK (QUESTION), THE REAL BUTTER (TRUTH) WILL RISE TO THE TOP!
WHY MANY AMERICANS ARE CONCERNED ABOUT AGENDA 21?
Agenda 21 is (currently) a non-binding, voluntarily implemented action plan of the United Nations with regards to "sustainable development". It is a product of the UN Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1992. It is an action agenda for the UN, other multilateral organizations, and individual governments around the world that can be executed at local, national, and global levels. The "21" in Agenda 21 refers to the 21st century. It has been affirmed and modified at subsequent UN conferences. (Globalization)
Structure and contents
Agenda 21 is a 300-page document divided into 40 chapters that have been grouped into 4 sections: (Sounds good on the surface; but, is it really or is it just another subterfuge)
Section I: Social and Economic Dimensions
This section is directed toward combating poverty, especially in developing countries, changing consumption patterns, promoting health, achieving a more "sustainable population", and "sustainable settlement" in decision making.
Section II: Conservation and Management of Resources for Development
Includes atmospheric protection, combating deforestation, protecting fragile environments, conservation of biological diversity (biodiversity), control of pollution and the management of biotechnology, and radioactive wastes.
Section III: Strengthening the Role of Major Groups
Includes the roles of children and youth, women, NGOs, local authorities, business and workers and strengthening the role of indigenous peoples, their communities, and farmers.
Section IV: Means of Implementation
Implementation includes science, technology transfer, education, international institutions and financial mechanisms. (Wikipedia)
IT IS THAT "UTOPIAN WORLD" THAT THE LIBERALS/CONSERVATIVES ARE LEADING US TO BELIEVE WILL EVENTUALLY COME TO BE!
NO MATTER HOW IT IS CONVEYED, IN MY OPINION, THE RESULTS WILL BE SIMILAR TO HITLER'S "LEBENSTRAUM"!
Lebensraum (German for "habitat" or literally "living space") was one of the major genocidal political goals of Adolf Hitler, and an important component of Nazi ideology. It served as the motivation for the expansionist policies of Nazi Germany, aiming to provide extra space for the growth of the German population, for a Greater Germany. In Hitler's book Mein Kampf, he detailed his belief that the German people needed Lebensraum ("living space", land, and raw materials), and that it should be found in Eastern Europe. It was the stated policy of the Nazis to kill, deport, or enslave the Polish, Ukrainian, Russian, and other Slavic populations, whom they considered inferior, and to repopulate the land with Germanic people (The Nazi's "sustainable development"). The entire urban population was to be exterminated by starvation, thus creating an agricultural surplus to feed Germany and allowing their replacement by (a German upper class)! (Wikipedia)
HITLER USED MILITARY FORCE IN AN ATTEMPT TO CREATE AND CONTROL HIS NEW WORLD ORDER AND NOW A GLOBAL FINANCIAL CABAL IS USING THE UNITED NATIONS TO EVENTUALLY INSTALL THEIR NEW ONE WORLD ORDER TO CONTROL THE PEOPLE! DESTRUCTION OF THE "MIDDLE CLASS" HAS TO BE THE FIRST CASUALTY, EVERYTHING ELSE WILL FALL IN PLACE!
DIFFERENT STROKES BY DIFFERENT FOLKS!
The Communist Movement of the Twentieth Century!
KARL MARX (A GERMAN) IN HIS "COMMUNIST MANIFESTO" ONCE SAID; "THE MIDDLE CLASS MUST BE DESTROYED BECAUSE THAT IS WHERE THE FUTURE LEADERS WILL COME FROM"!
Karl Marx in his "Communist Manifesto" advocated the following. (The only things that have change from the agrarian age until now are the methods that are being used to accomplish this agenda)!
STEPS TO MARXIST SOCIALISM: (My comments are in parenthesis and apply to the U.S government)
l. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public (Government) purposes.
A heavy progressive or graduated income tax. (Revenue Act of 1913)
Abolition of all right of inheritance. (Not yet there, but it is coming)
Confiscation of all property by the government. (Imminent Domain - housing crisis)
Centralization of credit in the hands of the State, by means of a national bank (Federal Reserve Act of 1913 - Central Banking System) with State capital and an "exclusive monopoly".
Centralization of the means of communication (Media/Internet) and transport in the hands of the State.
Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the (World) State; the bringing into cultivation of waste-lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a "common plan".
Equal liability of all to labor. Establishment of industrial (Union) armies, especially for agriculture.
Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual "abolition of the distinction between town and country - (replaced with Collectives)", by a more equitable distribution of the population over the country (World).
Free education for all children in public (Government) schools. Abolition of children's factory labor in its present form and combination of education with industrial (Government) production.
BOTH (COMMUNISM AND LIBENSRAUM) FAILED! (Regroup and try, try again)

When we gather together again, When God gives his final call; We will discover very soon, That portrait wasn't faded at all;

"537" - Will we see a repeat of the Presidential Election of 2000?
On election night, news networks first called Florida for Al Gore, later retracted the projection, and then called Florida for George W. Bush, before finally retracting that projection as well. Florida's Republican Secretary of State, Katherine Harris, eventually certified Florida's vote count. This led to the Florida election recount, a move to further examine the Florida results.
The Florida recount was stopped a few weeks later by the U.S. Supreme Court. In the ruling, Bush v. Gore, the Justices held that the Florida recount was unconstitutional and that no constitutionally valid recount could be completed by the December 12 deadline, effectively ending the recounts. This 7–2 vote ruled that the standards the Florida Supreme Court provided for a recount were unconstitutional due to violations of the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, and further ruled 5–4 that no constitutionally valid recount could be completed by the December 12 deadline. This case ordered an end to recounting underway in selected Florida counties, effectively giving George W. Bush a "537" vote victory in Florida and consequently Florida's 25 electoral votes and the presidency. The results of the decision led to Gore winning the popular vote by approximately 500,000 votes nationwide, but receiving 266 electoral votes to Bush's 271. (Wikipedia)
THE 2000 PRESIDENTIAL RACE!
The mail volume that night three weeks before the Presidential Election of 2000 was extremely heavy. As a rehab with a permanent injury while a mail carrier, I was assigned as a distribution clerk casing mail in the rehab section of the General Mail Center in Jacksonville, Florida. This section was charge with placing mail that was either too large or could not be processed through the automated machines into mail cases. Once these cases were pulled down the mail was placed in trays, placed in rolling bins and sent to the various post offices in the North Florida and Southern Georgia areas. Other sections of the GMC would case the mail going to other parts of Florida and throughout the Nation.
One night while casing mail, I came across a large envelope that didn't have a cancellation stamp, no date, no postage and no return address. I thought to myself this isn't right, knowing that it was probably a military absentee ballot probably coming from overseas. I weigh the envelope attached the proper postage from my own stamp book, cancelled and dated it and on the front I wrote my work site, telephone number and initialed it and put it in the proper tray. In the next few weeks I did this on several envelopes. From this moment up until the expiration date that absentee ballots would be counted I made a concerted effort to process mainly absentee ballots (several thousands). Every night I would go through the bins of mail to be cased, remove them and take them to my case and insure that they would be directed to the right post office. I went to most of the employees on my tour (6 PM until 2:30 AM when most of the mail was processed) and ask them to lay aside the absentee ballots they handled and I would come by and pick them up.
A BRUSH WITH HISTORY? (COULD HAVE, PERHAPS SHOULD HAVE, BUT I HAVE PEACE OF MIND THAT I DIDN'T)!
The day after the election of 2000, when it became apparent that the presidential election would be decided by Florida's absentee ballots I increased my efforts. One night sitting at my case with several trays of absentee ballots, I thought to myself that I had history sitting right there at my feet. That if I was that type, which I'm glad I'm not, I could very well change the outcome of history by making these absentee ballots disappear. Knowing at that time that most of these ballots were coming from military bases outside of Florida and that most of the Military voted Republican.
I really was shocked when I realized that Bush was elected by "537" Florida votes! Of course, those absentee ballots that I handled could have been mostly Democratic, but I doubt it!
In that Florida allows write in votes and being disillusioned by both parties, I personally voted for Micky Mouse after I had made up my mind to never vote for the lesser of two evils again!
AFTER VOTING FOR GEORGE H.W., I CAME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT THE ONLY "CHANGE" WE WOULD SEE IN CURRENT POLITICS ARE THE NAMES!
MINE IS TO REASON RHYME, MINE IS NOT TO DO AND WHINE!
