Whenever Never Comes! By L. Don Oliver

Whenever my never comes, And there will come that __; Looking back upon the road of life, Did I venture the proper _?;

Taking everything for granted, Was the only avenue for ; Never searching for the answers, That closed eyes refused to _;

Spring vanished into Summer, Like a thief in the __; Summer escaped into Autumn, Altering its changing __;

Winter was but a moment, Regrets blanketed the ___; No more tomorrows to come, Life is so deeply _;

Never, did I say the right words, Nor, did I do the little ___; To enjoy each awakening hour, And the beauty that it ___;

Now that life has passed me by, Only destiny remains to _; What will be the consequence, Of the choices that were ___?;

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";

A Tall Tales Winter! By L. Don Oliver

The sun is shinning bright, With a warming delight, In a Winter of our content; No thought of the North, Summer apparel we sport, Of this we willingly consent;

Snow clouds are building, A warm front is shielding, From the frozen shroud; Pine trees begin scowling, To the Northeast they are bowing, From the screaming wind's loud;

The tree line once standing, Is no longer commanding, The pleasures of it's sight; The disappearance of it's form, That once came with each morn, Leave's only feelings of fright;

What's bad for the Drake, Maybe good for the Snake, But, no one really knows; We still have to defend, On what reality sends, After a destructive wind blows;

Swampyville’s - From the Swampyville Gazette: “I heard the Robin sing”!

From the Swampyville Gazette!

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;

Swampyville’s - The Season of Reason!

The Season of Reason! By L. Don Oliver

Tis the season for individual reason, To each their own acccord; I choose to celebrate the occasion, Of the birth of my Lord;

Tis the season that belongs to everyone, No matter who they may be; It's the season that gladdens every soul, From the worries that they perceive;

Too often it's used for politics, Others will use it to digress; Upon this season of joy and happiness, That the secularists wish to repress;

Trying to alter my belief system, Has been their effort from the start, They can attempt to change my mind, But they will never change my heart;

Upon this Season of Reason, Let love be our Waterfall; Peace on Earth, Goodwill to everyone, And a "Merry Christmas" to all;

Swampyville’s - “In My Life”!

From the song "In My Life" by the Beatles! I hope John, Paul, George and Ringo will forgive me for changing some of the words to THEIR song!

IN REMEMBERANCE OF THOSE WHO LOST THEIR LIVES ON DECEMBER 14, 2012 IN NEWTOWN, CT!

There are places I remember, All my life, though some have changed; Some forever, not for better, Some have gone and some remain;

All these places had their moments, With loved ones and friends I can recall; Some have left and some are remaining, In my life, I've loved them all;

But of all these loved ones and friends, There is no one that compares with you; And your memory won't lose its meaning, When I think of something new;

Though I know I will never lose affection, For people and things that have gone before; I will often stop and think about them, But in my life, I will love you more;

Swampyville’s - The Holyday Tree!

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;

Swampyville’s - Reconstructing the road and bridges to “The Global Plantation”!

Swampyville's - Reading Between the Lines!

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"!
