Gone Astray

20170503_164915

It seems that conservatives in the House and Senate have gone far astray, much like a person of faith walking away,

lost in the wilderness, or denying there is any truth anymore, spinning Russian fables, smearing our heroes……to protect…….the idol, because he’s conservative.

 

Note: It’s not that progressives are sinless but here, in the Impeachment hearings, there is a clear presentation…….of truth.

Our Healing as a Nation

20170503_164943

For our healing as a nation, all we really need is a moderate in the White House, from either side.

Regardless of what happens with the impeachment, we simply need a man or woman with integrity, willing to do what is right for our nation.

And that includes taking a stand against corruption and lying.

On the right, I can think of several people such as Mitt Romney, and John Kasich. Mitt is an excellent speaker, and a statesman. Maybe you can think of some others.

And for the progressives let’s not count out Honest Joe Biden. Since our current president likes to brand people to slam their character, I’m turning around the idea for the positive.

Honest Joe has alot of integrity, and an incredible amount of experience. There’s also Amy Klobachar. She is excellent.

My point is we can do this.

It’s easier than we think. There are many others that are less known, such as Catherine Cortez Masto, a moderate Democrat from Nevada.

She was the first woman to ever be elected to the U.S. Senate from Nevada, and the first Latina to ever be elected to the U.S. Senate…..ever.

You see how close we are to healing?

In diversity there is strength.

Peace.

Glimpses of Light

20160514_175924

As the Spirit of Lying continues to strangle Washington D.C.,

choking our democracy,

ripping our unity 

we do occasionally have glimpses of light.

And the light of truth

will prevail,

subduing even the far right subverting,

Lying to win, winning at all costs,

will eventually

destroy itself.

Battle Fatigue

20170503_164915

Well I admit it, I’ve been holding back. After all we’ve been through within the past two years with this president, I think we’re all burned out, trying to just survive our battle fatigue.

And that’s the biggest danger, that we will not care anymore. It doesn’t really matter does it, that he’s lied so much, that he hides his money, that he does seem to have obstructed justice a number of times, that he just wants to look good,

that the AG spun the report in a positive way, causing conservatives to do the happy dance, when in fact the report isn’t positive at all.

Another protector blocking attempts to find the truth simply because, he’s “conservative”.

But it does matter when people do wrong and try to get other people to do wrong too.

Did you know you don’t have to commit a crime to be impeached?

Yes eating chicken during a hearing is stupid, and inappropriate, but we need to protect our democracy,

not a politician who believes he is above the law, and that he should be able to do whatever he wants. Nah, we don’t need that.

What Would He Say?

20170503_164915

If God himself came down to bring judgment on our nation what would He say to the rich attempting to remove healthcare from the poor?

Many with pre-existing conditions?

What would He say to leaders still putting brown children in cages?

What would He say to White Nationalists, some in government or even in media, continuing to spread hatred, inciting violence?

What would He say to leaders refusing to acknowledge the devastation of our climate changing, putting us all in danger and in harm’s way?

What would He say to a leader that lies about paying off women to keep quiet, about having sex with them?

And most of all what would he say to the people calling faith their home, as they bow down to their vulgar conservative idol, doing all they can to protect him, simply because he is called conservative?

What in heaven’s name would God say?

Within My Peace

20180930_130130

When readers come to my site what do they expect to see? Poetry mostly, or maybe a short story, but they are not really looking for political commentary. That’s not the way I designed this site.

And yet I feel things deeply, as many of us do, and much of what we see seems so wrong. How do we stop the madness?

Perhaps as artists and writers we are made internally to feel strongly and observe the insanity, so that we can articulate a response in a creative way.

And yet I hold back, firstly because of what I’ve mentioned. And secondly because I could easily spend all my time caught up in the turmoil of the times we live in.

I need freedom of spirit and mind to spread my writing wings. So I don’t need to solve the world’s problems, and especially not here on this site.

And yet you will on occasion see some lines on how I feel, hopefully in a natural way, usually condemning hate. I do think we should take a stand.

And finally, I am a progressive even though I don’t agree with everything they come up with, and that’s ok. I wasn’t always progressive though.

I think I can give a unique perspective because I’ve been on both sides of the aisle.

Within my peace I strive for a clear vision.

I hope you all feel respected and appreciated here. Thank you for listening.

Peace to you.

Why I Wear Blue Now

20170503_164915

I used to wear that conservative face, born again tying my heart to the right, wearing red

but there were too many times

we were angry with the poor,

seeing only strangers

in our land, taking our money,

our jobs, too many times

we were angry

at a black president,

and there were too many speeches

saying we were right

when the truth was we were wrong.

And there were too many times I knew

global warming was real,

so even before the insanity

of lying took power

I moved my house.

And blue fits me so much better now

as I look in the mirror.

Yes I still believe in God,

and I believe

Dr. Ford.
