you die George /w Bunker and Osama /w Cave
each little light lost deminishes us the more
when we are snuffers of any light indicating life
we become less human than our best intentions
9/11 was a wake-up call for Americans
set aside Bush and bin Laden’s lethal logic
it requires of a great republic democracy
to admit to past and present mistakes
(otherwise known as enlightenment)
is what we gain with truth
America was in it’s infancy when we allowed slavery
and we have mostly (not totally) corrected this mistake
Colonizing has a long history of brutality
and is not disconnected from Osama bin Laden’s complaint
The nightmare of our founding fathers
of king and empire is in our face today.
The whole world Is watching.
The Osamas of the world today have one weakness
and it is their human atrocities and degregation of women and
like all abusive behavior, prefers to be hid in a closet
or some corner of creation…one does not change behavior
by killing hordes to give the survivors freedom
one shames them by making it public for the world to see.
Bushs (and Dicks) of the world today have many weaknesses
the deadliest one being not to admit to any wrong doing.
Ike’s first impulse was right
the military/industrial/congressional complex
last night in the House of Representatives the verbal bombastings
were more about how their seats were bought, than spyware
with a few exceptions, most notible to me was
Rep. Anna Eshoo, Half Moon Bay, CA
who spoke as eloquently as Ben Franklin when he said,
“They that can give up essential liberty
to obtain a little temporary safety,
deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
In World War I we were told
“this was a war to end all wars.”
We were told the same in World War II.
Today we are asked to give up a BIG lot of liberty
for what looks like to the rest of the world
What happens when a big light goes out?
Same thing as when a little light goes out.
