Swampyville’s - The Holyday Tree!

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:

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.)

*Radical Centrists:

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"!

Swampyville’s - The United Nations Agenda 21’s Lebensraum?

Swampyville's - Reading Between the Lines!

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

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.

  1. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax. (Revenue Act of 1913)

  2. Abolition of all right of inheritance. (Not yet there, but it is coming)

  3. Confiscation of all property by the government. (Imminent Domain - housing crisis)

  4. 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".

  5. Centralization of the means of communication (Media/Internet) and transport in the hands of the State.

  6. 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".

  7. Equal liability of all to labor. Establishment of industrial (Union) armies, especially for agriculture.

  8. 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).

  9. 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)

TO ALL OF THE AMERICAN OSTRICHES - KEEP YOUR HEADS BURIED IN THE SAND SO THAT YOU WILL NEVER BE AWARE OF WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON!

Faded Portrait! by L. Don Oliver

Faded portrait on the wall, Of someone held so dear; If you listen very closely, There's a voice you can hear;

Whisper of forever memories, Of the happy times gone by; Love of the ones touched, And what made them cry;

Faded portrait on the wall, Of someone sweet and kind; Who will never be forgotten, By those who were left behind;

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

Swampyville’s - “537” - Will we see a Repeat of 2000?

Swampyville's - Reading Between the Lines!

"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!

Cavern of Loneliness! By L. Don Oliver

In the grotto of my being, where I allow none to enter; For if I was ever to do so, then I wouldn't be the center;

Hearing the ghosts of life, and the song that they sing; Caring not about tomorrow, or for what it will bring;

Lost in the echoing silence, in the world of my charade; Quick to always blame others, for the mistakes that I've made;

In a cavern of loneliness, where so many choose to dwell, One small step from reality, and one giant leap to hell;

Dawn of Destruction. (Addiction) By L. Donald Oliver

On a path of least resistance, No matter where it may lead; Aware of only the moment, Never caring what I would seed;

Life was in the fast lane, Spiraling out of my contain; Easier to fault everyone else, Never to accept any blame;

Of those who really cared, Mattered not much to me; A one way path to destruction, Is where I chose to be;

I have kissed the devil, Experienced the false desire; Dwelt in the canyons of hell, Consumed by the raging fire;

No thought of pain caused, Dismissed the wise man's cry; Doomed to eternal damnation, Questioning the reason why;

Swampyville’s - Political Persuation!

Swampyville's - Reading Between the Lines!

Political Persuasion (Political Cults)!

The word Political cult in current popular usage usually refers to a political movement whose beliefs or practices are propagandized to be normal. Both, the Democratic and Republican parties want us to believe that the Tea Party movement is nothing but a cult, when in reality, they the Democrats and Republicans are the real cultists!

Studies have identified a number of key steps in political persuasion: (Political Cults)

l. People are put in a emotionally distressing situation;

  1. Their problems are compounded by complex explanations, which are repeatedly emphasized;

  2. They receive what seems to be unconditional love, acceptance, and attention from a charismatic leader or group;

  3. They get a new identity based on the group (Progressives - both parties);

  4. They are subject to brainwashing and their access to information is severely controlled.

  5. They come to believe in the "Hype" that they are being fed by both Parties!

MY QUESTION IS: "ARE YOU BETTER OFF TODAY THAN YOU WERE TWELVE YEARS AGO AFTER BOTH, THE REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRATIC PARTIES, GOT THEIR SHARE OF THE "AMERICAN TAX PIE" WITH THEIR "TARP" AND "STIMULUS PACKAGE"?

THOSE WHO THINK CONTROL WHAT THEY WANT TO BECOME AND THOSE WHO DO NOT THINK ARE CONTROLLED TO BE WHAT "OTHERS" WANT THEM TO BECOME!

REMEMBER TO REMEMBER TO FORGET!

Right after World War Two, when I was eight years old, I asked my Dad why was this Country always at war. His reply, "The world has to have a war to survive". I still remember those words!

After every War/Conflict, the United States has been involved in, a Catchphrase as been attached to that War!

NEVER FAIL TO CAPITALIZE ON A CONVENIENT CRISIS!

Some United States historical Catchphrases:

1700's - Remember: the Boston Tea Party! (Revolutionary War)

1801 - Remember: The Shores of Tripoli! (Barbary War)

1830's - Remember: the Alamo! (Mexican/American War)

1861 - Remember: Fort Sumter! (War between the States)

1890's - Remember: the Maine! (Spanish/American War)

1898 to Remember: Gone Bananas 1934 (Banana Wars)

1915 - Remember: the Lusitania! (World War One)

1940's - Remember: Pearl Harbor! (World War Two)

1950 - Remember: the Chosin Reservoir! (Korean War/Police Action)

1965 - Remember: the Domino Effect! (Viet Nam War)

2001 - Remember: 911! (War on Terrorists)

Today - Remember: We have always known better than you how you should live your dumb downed/doped up lives! (Political Elite's War on the People)

There have been other conflicts that the U.S. has been involved in that doesn't have a catchphrase. such as; LBJ's War on Poverty which has become a War on Property. Other Conflicts - The War on Illiteracy has become one of a War on Infancy and the War on Drugs has become one of "Who Me? shrugs"!
