the PARENTS came to school that day
to kiss their children where they’d been slain
the choking wails, with HUNDREDS K sobs
“t’was just beginning”, it’s all been robbed
the great debate has drawn to still
a “best and brightest” now has killed
the “doomsday” list this didn’t ‘clude
harsh lessons ‘gainst TWO’S rights glare inbued
worst most of all to Psy’trysts calls
the perp’ was not with “TAN” at all
this wasn’t part of charts and tests
we shouldn’t lay “our” child to rest
gold’s favor isn’t much at all
lead poisoning can touch the all
and though a “right” what’s left is pall
‘lobby’ seasons wassail with gall
What does one do about our corporate Shrews? Is the HOPE of “A” LIVING determined by the greed of ONE PERCENT over the nascent GIFT of FAMILY? The lead-in to this post was written on the LUNGS of MEN AND WOMEN among the hills of EARTH that contain the PEATS, BITUMINOUS and ANTHRACITE types of FUELS that have been extracted WORLD WIDE.
“Caught In a BUREAU: Ode TO the MINER”… and “REVISITED” are TWO parts of a sickly TRIPTYCH, that has reached its finale at the election of a Man that is similar to those that have just finished their shift BELOW HELL itself.
he stares to right but, not CORRECT
the blame for losing IS ON YOUR NECK
the ‘REDNECK’ WON not long ago
INCLUDING WHITE AND “BLACK”… YOU KNOW
BUT, “CHANGE” is tough for those too weak
NO PROGRESS in THIS WORLD they’ll seek
the “AS IT WAS” ’til ROT slays ALL
then blame it on “THE MUD” when fall
PINNED in the “BUREAU” that they did build
as innocent family MEN DIE in “HIS” HILLS
to “PRAY” / PREY for unjust GREED, THAT’S ALL
the ENERGY to feed the CHILDREN is HIS SIN, OUR PALL
According to the improbable VP
Paul Ryan has told a group at a rally on the front lawn of a county courthouse that he and his running mate, Mitt Romney, “would help more Americans find jobs so that they can pay taxes”. Wow! THAT’S ” mighty WHITE” of you Paul.
For a group that only sees the “white” of a “black AND white” situation to ADMIT that his party’s basic thought is,(AGAIN!), ALL ABOUT the MONEY.
answering in reference to Romney’s 47% comment: Ryan says “the answer is more jobs so workers earn enough money that they have to pay their share.”
Not that the “best and brightest” youth in the upper tiered schools of this Nation have NO COMPUNCTION about CHEATING to get where they “THINK” they need to be. There’s NO I.N.T.E.G.R.I.T.Y. being taught by PARENT OR “teacher”. ( The scandals of New York State, [SAT testing] and City, [The Stuyvesant ELITE High School.] Throw in the HAU-VAUD, (Harvard), cheating fiasco, ( Which includes close to half the accused being VARSITY ATHLETES.), and the basic average says that “WE”, as a nation, have tossed away a few of the basic blocks of the “FOUNDATION” to KEEP the “HOUSE” from performing a “HOYLE gravity architectural maneuver”. If RYAN’S concern hasn’t included the basest of the ‘articles’ that would mean that the “articles” NO LONGER MATTER. Just the funding capabilities of the Senate and Congress “ponging” partisan puffments, predictably purloining paid-ins “por” public pilfery . Equaling, citizen taxes get used for MORE non-infrastructural nonsense, while the “elected” vote themselves higher wages.
(“Salaries of Members of Congress,” says that pay raises occur unless Congress specifically blocks them, and that in the past two decades, “Congress has accepted a raise 13 times and denied itself a pay increase on seven occasions.”)
Congress has now voted itself a total of $16,700 in raises over the last six years.
Since 1990, congressional pay has increased from $98,400 to $154,700 in …
Even when America is working the GOP wants more. When they start truly CONSERVING the economy they WILL be voted on successfully with it.
As ‘Goofy’ would say, ” GARSH, Mickey, that’d just be SWELL!”…
But, “THAT” JUST AIN’T GONNA’ HAPPEN! What “ain’t gonna’ HAPPEN?
The under-current thought of Former President WILLIAM JEFFERSON CLINTON “joining” Current PRESIDENT BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA on the ensuing Democratic Party ticket to become elected for ANOTHER TERM. How CAN this “BE”, (?), asks the myriad of B+ students in the old labeled ‘PROBLEMS OF DEMOCRACY’ / HISTORY High School Classes that “we” “Baby-Boomers” attended back in the 50′s, 60′s and early 70′s have a vague “vegetabled” spore, or cloud “OF”. Well, young’ns ,”EYES” gonna’ spell ya’ some “Con-stuh-mah-two-shin-awl” “Hokey- Poke-US” that we heard as a sneeze from the hall closet during the DNC / “CLINTOBAMA “Clash” Conversion”…
Typing the query of “Can a TWO TERM President be chosen to become VICE-PRESIDENT after leaving?” The ‘ANSWER, my friend, has MORE LEGAL atmosphere than YOU KNOW…
OH, WAIT!! The conventions OVER. NOPE, it can’t happen.
But, as an exercise in a political bottle rocket war this thought would be like having access to the Pepsi Bottling factory and connecting stacks of cases to create “salvo treadmills” throughout the neighborhoods.
The (online) “news” articles have been telling, ( that would be to those that ARE EMPLOYED.), notifying, ( those that WILL be attempting to be EMPLOYED.), and VERIFYING, ( OF those that CONTINUE to “FIND” EMPLOYMENT.), that the issue of “AMERICAN” businesses ‘huddling’ to protect THEIR “bottom line” by continuing to “produce” with FEWER employees… and ADDING more tasks for them to accomplish such.
This is a “society” that was “historically” begun by a group of folk from ENGLAND,
“seeking” to practice their ‘religion’, and ways of life, without the taintings of the other factions from “Rome”, or “Israel”. The how’s and why’s weren’t tolerated. And, when those were brought to these shores the lesson of tolerance, acceptance, and COMMUNAL enhancement, through sharing shown by those that GREETED them, was to become the human “vortex” , (not unlike what is in our Oceans.), from the “DEVINE RIGHT” of COMMERCE and CONVEINIENCE today.
The GYRE* of today’s society has turned many into disaffected masses that endanger the “world” as a WHOLE…
…especially those that haven’t had the recent proximity of the freshness of recent “USE” / engagement. (EMPLOYMENT / INCOME.)
The “bets” made by Government and Business are so intertwined that they’ve been sending “smoke signals” UP the CITIZENRY’S SPHINCTERS with such frequency that the “English speaking” have become quite comfortable with the feeling.
( This DIATRIBE “may” be a tad disjointed but, the weight of the “WHAT” is going wrong, in MY “LIFE”, HAS made COGENT thought presentation DIFFICULT at this moment.)
In the “nutshell” of this rant is the fact that businesses are telling “us” that they are in “need” of personnel to accomplish their advertised tasks. After TEN MONTHS of DAILY “search-to-employ” Internet missions , and interviews the spector of distrust by those that WILL extract a PENNEY by every means ” necessary” has become the POLYP blocking the myriad of entities that make up the things that are to function within the BODY of SOCIETY. AND, it is growing, unabated, at a rate that IS eating away TOO MANYS lives.
This terse is labeled the “Job’s Market”, as in JOB from the Bible. Where “two” entities HAVE made a BET against the other on WHAT each can do TO / FOR the “object” of said bet. The insidious emotional, mental and physical incisions so deftly used by the ‘THIEF” of progress, destroying the accumulated works of the “object”. Sadly, the other ‘bettor’ only sets the rule of the opponent ‘NOT’ taking the LIFE of the “object” to win.
The sadder part of this comparison is that there’ no such rule for today’s competitors. Those that HAVE worked to build the foundations, and frameworks; walls and roof-lines are being tested by those that believe they are ENTITLED to do whatever with the ancient Oaks, Diamonds and Dinosaur remains, wasting such so they may hold these “Carrots” to lead the world’s populations to the “SHOWER-ROOMS” of their liking…
…Or, to the self Lethal Injection, or Immolatoreums that have been built for them with their own tax dollars…
I DO believe that it’s time to INVEST in ASH.
YES! The intermixing of lower and upper case of the word LABOR DO have a meaning.It represents the ups and downs of the fight to remain viable to “the creditors” that seem to be seeing black on their audits but, red when a “BLACK”, ( as in ‘BALLED’.), person seeking to KEEP that which they’d WORKED FOR these past FIVE administrations. Not that being a new entrant to the task of being a TAXPAYER is “any” easier.
Remember to cut and paste here, kids.
Labor has lost a lot of ground these past few years.Well, at least the BODY HAS, officers appear to have HARPOONED the “Cash WHALE”, riding the membership Skiff for ALL the thrills being ABLE to pay the MORTGAGE ON TIME does. So, WHY is “labor” pumping all that constitual coinage into the “punch them in the Judies” each electoral cycle? That money IS for the “WHAT IFS” during
the ‘lifespan’ / seniority acquisition of their membership.
“WE” that have no such “protections” have seen the loss of available employments through the down-sizing of companies’ workforces. Most companies today offer a job publicly but WILL GIVE that “bit” of time to those within payroll already, giving rise to the “WHY” there’s so much of the ‘BUDGET’ NOT being placed on that which it was intended FOR.
I wind this up with a POSTING that is more appropriate to the “celebration” of this day,(AND Moment.),than I can muster…
… written by:Joseph Stiglitz, professor of economics at Columbia University and a Nobel laureate.
AGAIN, HAPPY LaBoR Day, those of you that DO,OR STILL try.
Maybe Mr. Stalin may have mellowed by now, or maybe he’d have been just crotchety enough to nod a Turkey-necked approval for the TWO YEAR conviction of three TOUGH and INTELLIGENT young Women.
Here we are coming to the grand centennial of the installation of the proletariat,
removing the “Tsarist Blight”. As in a THOUROUGH SCRUBBING,
And, just before the former Soviet Union gathers their “remembrances OF”, newly ‘re-elected’ President Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin has brought the “Hammer-FIST” out of “semi-retirement” to deftly use the Sickle / psycle in his court’s decision to politically CIRCUMSISE the WOMEN of PUSSY RIOT,
Needless to say that the FEAR OF Women is reaching an apex, arcing through the AIR to SCRIBE the “word” FREEDOM, in a VERY CALLIGRAPHIC hand, into the LEADED GLASS CEILING of ‘Russia’.…
…AND, doing so with a CHANEL JACKHAMMER!!!
The fact that History repeats itself is far too easy to say without comparison. BUT! If you remember the years of 2003-2005 AMERICA had Russia’s Fraternal twins in THE DIXIE CHICKS…
