“Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss”
– The Who
There is absolutely no difference between this:
And both are in DIRECT VIOLATION of this:
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”
Congratulations folks, the torch has been passed from King George to King Barack. My vote, it seems, counted for absolutely nothing.
A few weeks ago I made the decision to cut myself off from the news. Still, these things have found their way to me through conversation. For the sake of argument, let’s assume my walls aren’t thick enough yet. Be that as it may, the decision was MINE ALONE. The incidents above are something else entirely.
Here’s a quick reality check: Governments can’t give you ANYTHING that the Creator hasn’t already thrown into the mix. The only thing a government can do is take things away. They “grant” us just enough freedom of speech to allow us to blow off steam, but take away our god-given rights to speak freely en masse about issues of importance because the last thing they want us to do is to band together and fix the situation. Which won’t happen until everything has been taken away. Don’t believe me? Which gets more results: a million Americans screaming about the economy or one man facing a tank in Tienneman Square?
Now is the time to let them run the whole fear and greed driven carnival into the ground. The more energy we throw at the shadow monster, the stronger it becomes. Let’s turn our back on the light show. Let’s take that energy and instead, throw it into compassionate endeavors. Heal yourself. Heal your family. Heal your community.
Then, for Spirit’s sake, let’s HEAL THE EARTH. . .
