When I Was Low

When I Was Low

When I was low, nowhere to go,
You came around without a sound
I felt your care, I wasn’t scared
You made me whole, lifted my soul

You are the one
The Holy One
Whose thunder rolls,
Who saved my soul

When I was down wearing a frown
No work, no pay, I lost my way
You heard my cry and you dropped by
I was a mess and now I’m blessed

You are the one
The Holy One
Whose thunder rolls,
Who saved my soul

When roads were slick and I was sick
People were mean, their words unclean
The sweet turned sour, I had no power
You took my night and made it light

You are the one
The Holy One
Whose thunder rolls,
Who saved my soul

~Day Williams

Socialism does not work

Socialism does not work:

  1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.
  2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
  3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
  4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
  5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.
  6. The government has no right to take rights and freedoms from people.

Moral of the story: Gather all the facts before you draw conclusions. That means talk to the people involved, if you can, the reporters, the cops, and anybody else involved. Sometimes it takes a while to gather the whole picture. You cannot rely on what the mainstream press says. They have a narrative to promote.
