A Nation for all Seasons

United States of America

A Nation for all Seasons

As we look at our nation today a symbolism of seasons comes to mind

General Washington and his army defeated the British in Winter time

in the year of 1775 and our nation in 1776 was strong go’n into Spring

the Declaration of Independence that Summer the Liberty Bell did ring

In 1787 the Constitution was adopted & ratified for all to understand

now began one nation under God with liberty and justice for every man

The first 10 amendments as the Bill of Rights signed in the Fall of 1789

and the founders of our great nation knew it could stand the test of time!

Now as we are to enter the Fall of 2012 and another election is at hand

our nation in real dire straits & a President any good patriot can’t stand

put our country in enormous peril triple’n the debt just 1 of his mistakes

ways his administration is out to destroy our country in whatever it takes

No regard for our Found’n Fathers or Constitution as the law of the land

a bunch of outlaws march to a socialist drummer & he’s lead’n the band

It’s a sad state of affairs how we’ve allowed those in power to undermine

what we have enjoyed being Americans since 1775 and that Winter time

We can ill afford to allow in the Fall of this year to elect these same nuts

or Winter this time will be like watch’n the ashes of our nation turn to dust!

TAPS and the lone bugler

Taps and the lone bugler

Every time I hear “taps” played, it touches me in so many ways

The lone bugler at the end of the day or a fallen soldiers grave

A call say’n rest you warrior I’m watch’n over you from above

whether the heat of battle or sacrifice you will know God’s love

Each note to give you peace, touch your heart & rest your mind

in what you have and will face as death any place and any time!

Jimmy on Memorial Day, 2012

Lord of our lives, our hope in death, we cannot listen to Taps without our souls stirring. Its plaintive notes are a prayer in music–of hope, of peace, of grief, of rest… Prepare us too, Lord, for our final bugle call when you summon us home! When the trumpet of the Lord shall sound and death will be no more.
-From the invocation delivered by Chaplain (Colonel) Edward Brogan (USAF, Ret.) at the Taps Exhibit Opening Ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery, 28 May 1999

Not just a historical reminder, it’s a fact!

In 1887 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh , had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior:

"A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse over loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a dictatorship."

"The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:
From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage."

The Obituary follows:
Born 1776, Died 2012

Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law in St. Paul , Minnesota , points out some interesting facts concerning the last Presidential election:

Number of States won by: Obama: 19 McCain: 29
Square miles of land won by: Obama: 580,000 McCain: 2,427,000
Population of counties won by: Obama: 127 million McCain: 143 million
Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Obama: 13.2 McCain: 2.1
Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of the territory McCain won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of the country. Obama’s territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in low income tenements and living off various forms of government welfare..."

Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the "complacency and apathy" phase of Professor Tyler's definition of democracy, with some forty percent of the nation's population already having reached the "governmental dependency" phase. If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million criminal invaders called illegal's - and they vote - then we can say goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years.

I strongly suggest you pass this along to help everyone realize just how much is at stake, knowing that apathy is the greatest danger to our freedom..

Of course we are not a democracy, we are a Constitutional Republic and we know OHbummer and too many others pay little attention, if any, to The Constitution.
There couldn't be more at stake than now in the history of our Nation and reality is a rude awakener!!

Happy Day to Moms!

Have a blessed Mothers Day!
So as you read the words within this poem as they rhyme
Listen to this song Moms are "angels" in our heart & mind
There’s nothing more precious, caring, loving than Moms
They kiss ya, hug ya, squeeze ya, change ya in their arms
They mold you in ways sometimes ya may not understand
But if it’s in being a boy it’s how they will make you a man
Mothers were once just like others we know as a little girl
Bear’n a bless’n in a burden bring’n a child into this world
So on this Mothers Day there’s one thing we share and see
Without our Moms how would we ever have a family tree!

Bite'n to Bark'n

Bite’n to Bark’n

One day ya notice yo’re show’n signs of your age

ya notice some’n ya hope is just another life stage

More wrinkles than most would care try’n to count

What ya used to enjoy ride’n takes a while to mount

Ladies still look’n good and sexy in yo’re minds eye

What ya may say to’em puts some of’em wonder’n why

Some may even say come give my behind a love tap

And all you do is start think’n of take’n another nap

Most however look at ya in a slightly different way

What they may have slap’d ya for now you can say

They seem to know when ya reached an age for joke’n

Know’n there’s more squeal in ya than there is poke’n

This may make some fellas get a tad on the side of sad

The lucky ones have great memories that make’em glad

In remember’n the fun in how we could do it all night

And now we’re lucky if we can hopefully keep it upright

Seems like these days about the only thing we feel throb’n

is when we get to think’n some’n stole what we were rob’n

I can’t speak for every man whose lost the teeth in his bite

it shor didn’t stop us chew’n the desire for a sexual appetite

There’s some fun in how we find the way to grin and bare it

despite the fact there ain’t many ladies who wanna share it

It all comes down to what we had that once created a spark

Left us with a handful of wrinkles and all we can do is bark!
