President’s Day


presidents-of-the-united-states-3

U.S. Presidents they forged a nation; along the way exterminated countless numbers of indigenous people. U.S. Presidents they expanded the nation; they saw brothers take arm against brother in the bloodiest war the has nation faced-they united the nation and took the first steps to right our nations biggest sin, the inequality of which still drenches our headlines, names of the innocent will reverberate in our minds until we die–Trayvon.

U.S. Presidents- they took the unwanted untouchable from other countries and said, ‘here, you can start anew.’ NOTHING was ever guaranteed, all they said is here  is your chance show us what you have.

U.S. Presidents-they created national parks that endure time, even though they are under constant attack by the avarice. U.S. Presidents encouraged the creative spirit of our nation, never before did advances in industry and technology were seen, for the first time humanity took flight!

U.S. Presidents gave us social programs after the great devastation that turned our financial institutions into failed dreams, poverty and despair, a glimmer of hope in dark times. U.S. Presidents made the tough calls when the great war came, evil walked the earth and was defeated. When the world came close to being destroyed a U.S. President negotiated in favor of saving the world rather than face.  Mutual assured destruction became part of our lexicon and the stuff that dreams are made of.

They are not supreme beings, U.S.Presidents, some have represented the worst  in all of us but some, the good ones, have challenged us to do better to reach out to the universe. All we have endured can be revisited, we are irresponsible beings but I know that US Presidents of every creed, gender and orientation will be there to not only see us through our failures but to see us reach new heights. Thank you  U.S. Presidents.

    We have temps in the 70’s and near 80 ALL WEEK…yay.
    I might go plant some seeds.
    I couldn’t think of the New Orlean’s song that Ricki plays, and it’s still nagging at me.

  6. Hey Amanda Terkel why are you still with the Huff?

    Huff did not only betray the community of commentators or the unpaid bloggers ( I have given-up on these guys as they only care about getting some publicity) the Huff betrayed the very staff that works hard to keep the place running.

    I think Terkel would do great all on her own—I’ll give her a job here 😀

      I remember finding out about you
      Every day, my mind is all around you
      Looking out from my lonely room, day after day
      Bring it home, baby, make it soon
      I give my love to you

      I remember holding you while you sleep
      Every day, I feel the tears that you weep
      Looking out of my lonely gloom, day after day
      Bring it home, baby, make it soon
      I give my love to you

    Yes, this is an afternoon of reading for some but it is well worth it. It is about the Eagle Ford shale in Texas and the unconstrained pollution.

    Cream – Badge

      • waverly says:

        I went down to the crossroads, fell down on my knees.
        Down to the crossroads, fell down on my knees.
        Asked the Lord above for mercy, “Save me if you please.”

      Cream – Tales of Brave Ulysses

      • waverly says:

        And the colours of the sea bind your eyes with trembling mermaids,
        And you touch the distant beaches with tales of brave Ulysses,
        How his naked ears were tortured by the sirens sweetly singing,
        For the sparkling waves are calling you to kiss their white laced lips.

        And you see a girl’s brown body dancing through the turquoise,
        And her footprints make you follow where the sky loves the sea.
        And when your fingers find her, she drowns you in her body,
        Carving deep blue ripples in the tissues of your mind.

        The tiny purple fishes run laughing through your fingers,

      Hey neb, left you a reply upstream on our conversation last night in case your notifications don’t tell you.

      • nebdem says:

        Greetings, Pluto! Great to see you. I just saw your reply. I will respond to it soon, just trying to get a grasp on what is happening right now in the Ukraine,

    I felt a disturbance in the Force. Or was that lunch?

    • nebdem says:

      “While the police have yet to actually begin a full assault on the protest camp in the centre of Kiev tonight, many commentators on the ground there expect that this will happen tonight.”
