“Honest conviction is my courage; the Constitution is my guide.” Andrew Johnson

“The goal to strive for is a poor government but a rich people.” Andrew Johnson 

“An honorable defeat is better than a dishonorable victory.” –Millard Fillmore

“The man who ca look upon a crisis without being willing to offer himself upon the altar of his country is not for public trust.” –Millard Fillmore

The storm of frenzy and faction must inevitably dash ithself in vain against the unshaken rock of the Constitution.” –Franklin Pierce

“Whoever controls the volume of money in any country is the absolute master of all industy and commerce.” –James Garfield

“A man is known by the company he keeps, and also by the company from which he is kept out.” –Grover Cleveland

We Americans have no commission from God to police the world.” –Benjamin Harrison

“If it were not for the reporters, I would tell you the truth.” –Chester Arthur

“To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.” –Theodore Roosevelt

‘My God, this is a hell of a job! I have no trouble with my enemies…but my damn friends, they’re the ones that keep me walking the floor nights.” –Warren Harding

“I repair to the post assigned me with no other discouragement than what springs from my own inadequacy to its high duties. If I do not sink under the weight of this deep conviction it is because I find some support in a consciousness of the purposes and a confidence in the principles which I bring with me into this arduous service. To cherish peace and friendly intercourse with all nations having correspondent dispositions; to maintain sincere neutrality toward belligerent nations; to prefer in all cases amicable discussion and reasonable accommodation of differences to a decision of them by an appeal to arms; to exclude foreign intrigues and foreign partialities, so degrading to all countries and so baneful to free ones; to foster a spirit of independence too just to invade the rights of others, too proud to surrender our own, too liberal to indulge unworthy prejudices ourselves and too elevated not to look down upon them in others.”  James Madison

“The dangers of a concentration of all power in the general government of a confederacy so vast as ours are too obvious to be disregarded.”  Franklin Pierce

“The only legitimate right to govern is an express grant of power from the governed.”  William Henry Harrison

“No government is perfect. One of the chief virtues of a democracy, however, is that its defects are always visible and under democratic processes can be pointed out and corrected.”  Harry S. Truman

“You cannot extend the mastery of government over the daily life of a people without somewhere making it master of people’s souls and thoughts.… Every step in that direction poisons the very roots of liberalism. It poisons political equality, free speech, free press, and equality of opportunity. It is the road not to more liberty but to less liberty.”  Herbert Hoover

“The national will is the supreme law of the Republic, and on all subjects within the limits of his constitutional powers should be faithfully obeyed by the public servant.”  Martin Van Buren

“No system of government can or should be imposed upon one nation by any other. That does not lessen my commitment, however, to governments that reflect the will of the people. Each nation gives life to this principle in its own way, grounded in the traditions of its own people. America does not presume to know what is best for everyone, just as we would not presume to pick the outcome of a peaceful election. But I do have an unyielding belief that all people yearn for certain things: the ability to speak your mind and have a say in how you are governed; confidence in the rule of law and the equal administration of justice; government that is transparent and doesn’t steal from the people; the freedom to live as you choose. Those are not just American ideas, they are human rights, and that is why we will support them everywhere. Now, there is no straight line to realize this promise. But this much is clear: governments that protect these rights are ultimately more stable, successful and secure.”  Barack Obama

 

In the late 1800’s What was good for Dole Pineapple was good for the country.

In the early 1900’s What was good for the stock market was good for the country.

Mid 1900’s What was good for General Motors was good for the country.

Today What is good for Homeland Security is good for the country.

When will we learn?

I have faith in people, that faith will never end. As citizens we must demonstrate to the political parties that we will not put up with their shenanigans any longer.

Our cabal of lawmakers both local and federal have acted illegally less than honestly in this election.

They have become corrupt and continue to blame the American people. I say enough.

We need to audit this system and make the necessary changes.

Neither party is above the Will of the People. We just have to exercise that Will.

As always the rhetoric is inspirational.

A call…..

I am calling on all Liberals and Progressives to purchase guns. Yup purchase every firearm and all the ammo you can find. Learn how to use it and safely store it.

Practice makes perfect

liberal

We need a national movement to scare the hell out of some of these pizzagate dupes.

liberal2

Nothing will terrify the “Alt-Right” (Racist Bastards) more than a well trained, well armed Progressive Posse

women

Heck we know what’s coming so why wait

trump

Purchase guns, join the NRA and find work at Conservative radio and blogs. It’s time for progressives to take the country back.

yosemite

We had eight years of the Presidency and it’s only the beginning. Let’s continue this roll by doing our daily diligence of Love and Caring while taking over gun ownership, the NRA and Conservative Talk Radio. -Yes We Can.

salute

Progressives and Liberals are being attacked 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Yeah we know what’s coming.

Buy a gun, learn how to use it. Join the NRA and work at talk radio. It’s a steep hill but we must climb it to win. Nothing better than a challenge and this might be the greatest challenge.

The Hollow Men

We are the hollow men

We are the stuffed men
Leaning together
Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!
Our dried voices, when
We whisper together
Are quiet and meaningless
As wind in dry grass
Or rats’ feet over broken glass
In our dry cellar

Shape without form, shade without colour,
Paralysed force, gesture without motion;

Those who have crossed
With direct eyes, to death’s other Kingdom
Remember us-if at all-not as lost
Violent souls, but only
As the hollow men
The stuffed men.

II

Eyes I dare not meet in dreams
In death’s dream kingdom
These do not appear:
There, the eyes are
Sunlight on a broken column
There, is a tree swinging
And voices are
In the wind’s singing
More distant and more solemn
Than a fading star.

Let me be no nearer
In death’s dream kingdom
Let me also wear
Such deliberate disguises
Rat’s coat, crowskin, crossed staves
In a field
Behaving as the wind behaves
No nearer-

Not that final meeting
In the twilight kingdom

III

This is the dead land
This is cactus land
Here the stone images
Are raised, here they receive
The supplication of a dead man’s hand
Under the twinkle of a fading star.

Is it like this
In death’s other kingdom
Waking alone
At the hour when we are
Trembling with tenderness
Lips that would kiss
Form prayers to broken stone.

IV

The eyes are not here
There are no eyes here
In this valley of dying stars
In this hollow valley
This broken jaw of our lost kingdoms

In this last of meeting places
We grope together
And avoid speech
Gathered on this beach of the tumid river

Sightless, unless
The eyes reappear
As the perpetual star
Multifoliate rose
Of death’s twilight kingdom
The hope only
Of empty men.

V

Here we go round the prickly pear
Prickly pear prickly pear
Here we go round the prickly pear
At five o’clock in the morning.

Between the idea
And the reality
Between the motion
And the act
Falls the Shadow
For Thine is the Kingdom

Between the conception
And the creation
Between the emotion
And the response
Falls the Shadow
Life is very long

Between the desire
And the spasm
Between the potency
And the existence
Between the essence
And the descent
Falls the Shadow
For Thine is the Kingdom

For Thine is
Life is
For Thine is the

This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.

-TS Elliot
