This country is toast - and the shills are out in force. I have been deleting more comments than I have been publishing lately. You say anything against the "anointed one" - and it brings a torrent of railing. Almost worse than slighting bummer in a liberal, inner city forum. Yowsa!
MK - ultra is all I can say. People are brainwashed by the media and their conservative leanings. Look past it folks - you have been deceived since the late 80's with the Bush dynasty. Now, it is the Clinton dynasty. They are all desperate for power - and they will do anything to maintain their grip on it. And no, I am not going to get off'd (Breitbarted, to be exact) for this dog and pony (reference to an earlier comment). But you have to get an idea that I do not give a crap, one way or the other. There is a reason I went to LaVoy's funeral. Because he rolls how I like to roll - you just say it the way it is, and deal with the consequences later. Right now, we have millions of pussified "men" who are cowering and letting their families and the next generation eat a crap sandwich of slavery. I am not willing to do that. The line is here and now. Hold it, or lose it for a minimum of a generation.
The populace is lulled asleep - and most would fight those who try to wake them up. What a concept! Fighting the liberator (the guy with the keys), who would like to do a jail break to get them back to a good place - stunning. I COMPLETELY get where Isaiah was coming from.
So all those who are trolling this site - you need to smoke your Michelins elsewhere. I usually don't budge when it comes to principle. Period.
And here is a fantastic parable that needs to be shared obliquely related to this topic:
A teacher was teaching her class of students when she relayed a story about a cruise ship capsized at sea.
On the ship, there was a couple that managed to make their way to a lifeboat, but then realized there was only space for one.
Although I can’t confirm whether this story actually happened or not, I certainly think we can all learn something from it.
A cruise ship capsized while at sea. On the ship was a couple who, after having made their way to the lifeboat, realized that there was only space for one person left.
At this moment, the man pushed the woman behind him and jumped onto the lifeboat himself.
The lady stood on the sinking ship and shouted one sentence to her husband.
The teacher stopped and asked: “What do you think she shouted?”
Most of the students excitedly answered: “I hate you! I was blind!”
Now, the teacher noticed a boy who was silent throughout, she got him to answer and he replied: “Teacher, I believe she would have shouted – Take care of our child!”
The teacher was surprised, asking: “Have you heard this story before?”
The boy shook his head: “Nope, but that was what my mom told my dad before she died to disease.”
The teacher lamented: “The answer is right.”
The cruise sunk, the man went home and brought up their daughter single-handedly.
Many years later after the death of the man, their daughter found his diary while tidying his belongings.
It turns out that when parents went onto the cruise ship, the mother was already diagnosed with terminal illness. At the critical moment, the father rushed to the only chance of survival.
He wrote in his diary: “How I wished to the bottom of the ocean with you, but for the sake of our daughter, I can only let you lie forever below the sea alone.”
The story is finished. The class was completely silent.
The teacher knows that the student has understood the moral of the story, that of the good and the evil in the world, there are many complications behind them which are hard to understand.
Which is why we should never only focus on the surface and judge others without understanding them first.
Those who like to pay the bill, do so not because they are loaded but because they value friendship above money.
Those who take the initiative at work, do so not because they are stupid but because they understand the concept of responsibility.
Those who apologize first after a fight, do so not because they are wrong but because they value the people around them.
Those who often text you, do so not because they have nothing better to do but because you are in their heart.
One day, all of us will get separated from each other. We will miss our conversations of everything and nothing and the dreams we had. Days, months and years will pass until this contact becomes rare.
One day, our children will see our pictures and ask: “Who are these people?”
And we will smile with invisible tears because a heart is touched with a strong word and you will say: “It was them that I had the best days of my life with.”
