Fight for Citizens to be Empowered and Free

Craig Sawyer:

KNOW THIS: There’s a BIG war for control over the USA. One side wants the citizens empowered & free. The other side wants us under the boot of a single global tyranny. We must be deceived & divided to be conquered. Beware of the deceivers & dividers! United We Stand. USA‼️🇺🇸

One’s as wealthy as a king in a palace

Tho’ he’s callous and cold

He may learn to give his heart for love

Instead of buyin’ it with gold

Then the poor man’s roses

And the thrill when we kiss

Will be memories of paradise

That I’ll never miss

Now, if you’re blue

And you don’t know where to go to

Why don’t you go where fashion sits

Puttin’ on the Ritz.

~Irving Berlin, “Puttin’ on the Ritz” (1929)

I’m tired of Love: I’m still more tired of Rhyme,

But Money gives me pleasure all the time.

John 3:16 and Tim Tebow

This is Amazing! After Tim Tebow wrote John 3:16 under his eyes (3 years ago), his friend told him, in his football games he passed for 316 yards, averaged 31.6 yards per pass, and CBS rating peaked at 31.6 A lot of people said it’s ‘coincidence’, but Tim Tebow said,” Big God.”

We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.

Weep not that the world changes—did it keep

A stable, changeless state, it were cause indeed to weep.

March 7: “A Smuggler’s Song” by Rudyard Kipling

A Smuggler’s Song – Poem by Rudyard Kipling

If you wake at midnight, and hear a horse’s feet,
Don’t go drawing back the blind, or looking in the street.
Them that ask no questions isn’t told a lie.
Watch the wall, my darling, while the Gentlemen go by!
Five and twenty ponies,
Trotting through the dark–
Brandy for the Parson,
‘Baccy for the Clerk;
Laces for a lady, letters for a spy,
And watch the wall, my darling, while the Gentlemen go by!

Running round the woodlump if you chance to find
Little barrels, roped and tarred, all full of brandy-wine,
Don’t you shout to come and look, nor use ’em for your play.
Put the brishwood back again –and they’ll be gone next day!

If you see the stable-door setting open wide;
If you see a tired horse lying down inside;
If your mother mends a coat cut about and tore;
If the lining’s wet and warm–don’t you ask no more!

If you meet King George’s men, dressed in blue and red,
You be carefull what you say, and mindful what is said.
If they call you “pretty maid,” and chuck you ‘neath the chin,
Don’t you tell where no one is, nor yet where no one’s been!

Knocks and footsteps round the house–whistles after dark–
You’ve no call for running out till the house-dogs bark.
Trusty’s here, and Pincher’s here, and see how dumb they lie–
They don’t fret to follow when the Gentlemen go by!

If you do as you’ve been told, ‘likely there’s a chance,
You’ll be given a dainty doll, all the way from France,
With a cap of Valenciennes, and a velvet hood–
A present from the Gentlemen, along o’ being good!
Five and twenty ponies,
Trotting through the dark–
Brandy for the Parson,
‘Baccy for the Clerk;
Them that asks no questions isn’t told a lie–
Watch the wall, my darling, while the Gentlemen go by!

~Rudyard Kipling

What is man, that you are mindful of him?

What is man, that you are mindful of him?

I muse and wonder if you care
I’m smaller than a grain of sand
You’ve counted every pore and hair
Somehow I fit in your giant plan

You say that I’m your masterpiece
I’m skin and bones and blood and brains
You made the seasons, which never cease
What use am I? What do you gain?

And I’m your poem–that’s a laugh
My rhythm’s bad, my voice is sad
You’re better off with a giraffe
Than me, your child,–not so, my dad?

Holding the world within your hands,
Why pay attention to a man?

~Day Williams

They [corporations] cannot commit treason, nor be outlawed nor excommunicated, for they have no souls.
