Drooling!!!

The day I lost my mind
No words to write
Or thoughts to find

Blank paper stares back
Mocking my emptiness
And the phrases I lack

I chase ideas round and round
Like a dog with its tail
Nothing new to be found

There’s so much to express
I don’t know where to start
Or how to even guess

It’s in my heart and mind to see
What every word steals
I lose by degree

So I just keep writing
In hopes of a thought
Or something enlightening.

Until then I’ll just babble
And drool on my ideas
As though they are scribble

Gun Control

Guns are a proud part of American history. From the early wars where farmers answered the call to “take up arms”, to the early Settlers who hunted for their meat; firearms were instrumental tools in the development of our nation.

Hold on if you think I’m sold on everyone owning a firearm, that’s not necessarily true. Those spineless bastards who put music to military raids for entertainment have skewed the minds of our youth just a much as those rappers who sit around with shiny pistols as extensions of their manhood.

We have a generation of children who grew up watching movies like the Rambo series or Terminator, and a host of other B rated movies with awesome special effects and terrible actors. These “kids” minds were twisted with the idea of firearms as weapons. Name a movie from this era with a pastoral scene and a father and son walking a trail with shotguns at the safe rest during this period. I know right!!!

Now these couch warriors gave birth to brats who play Halo or Assassins creed to the point that they are consumed with a plastic power that can extend into real life. So we do need to educate our youth about firearms as weapons as well as firearms as tools, if that’s not too late.

Guns as weapons come with responsibility. Soldiers, Police, and certain persons protecting the interest of others are examples of individuals carrying a firearm as a weapon. These individual carry weapons to protect the interest of society.

Firearms as tools are another reason folks have guns. Hunting and protecting livestock are situations where guns are tools. This is a timeless part of the heritage of many Americans. The primary function of a firearm for these folks is work, protection is secondary and seldom used against humans, contrary to the abundance of Hollywood drama.

These two groups pose no threat to other humans. However there are groups that do pose a threat hiding behind the 2nd Amendment. I support the 2nd Amendment as currently viewed by conservatives, but I can’t support extremism from gangsters or fanatics, they should be policed.

Extremist and criminals are the enemy, and they are diametrically opposed to each other, but are the same in their ignorance. They use guns as an extension of their manhood.

Extremist aren’t just the stereotypical white supremacist holed up in the mountains behind barbed wire. It’s never that simple. We know who those folks are, and they’re not the roaches that crawl out of the woodwork and wreak havoc every once in a while.

Those folks out there glorifying the power of weapons as some safety net for their own insecurities are dangerous. Guns don’t make you superior or cool, and buying them for the purpose of using them against humans out of exaggerated fears is very dangerous, that’s the Zimmerman effect to a tee.

There is also a group of folks who treat firearms as a criminal tool. Guns are glorified as a statement of manhood through music videos and games. Rap videos, crime video games, and documentaries about gangs portrayed firearms as a statement of toughness setting the bar for youth wanting to be a “Gangsta”, even if you weren’t in a gang. This goes for “Bloods and “Warlocks”.

“Wannabes” gangsta’s hanging around their hood with dope dreams and a sack are just as dangerous as the punk with a skinhead wearing chains and black clothing around his bedroom reading The Communist Manifesto cleaning a gun his introvert parents bought him for his 21st birthday.

These are our youth and we need to teach and train them right about many things. Having a pistol or shotgun around the house to “gack” someone or thinking you can buy your kid a gun and leave them be like you just bought them another video game is dangerous as hell. Signals, what signals do we send to these children about firearms and violence.

Soldiers are really the only folks who should be using firearms for violence, everyone else should be shooting targets or animals. Even Police should have a defensive posture such that the weapon they carry is “in case of emergency”!!!

Guns aren’t the problem, background checks are not a solution, parenting is the problem. It always comes back to home training. But if dad was an “OG” or a “Prepper” on the fence; maybe mom never seen a firearm but buys “Little Man” every video game on the shelf as a babysitter so he spends 14 hours a day playing Halo and watching main stream news shows. The possibilities of ignorance are endless.

There are no easy answers for the firearm debate. However; Gun control is about as far from realistic as shutting down fast food joints to halt obesity. Think about it a minute and it all stems from behavior. Behavior is learned, and can be modified.

The problem with this approach is it takes billions of dollars from the government and puts it into the hands of the economy. This threatens many folks and their standard of living.

So I imagine we’ll keep playing the middle ground to prop up the middle class in their imaginary successes with public ills. Millions of folks have retired on this ignorance and silently enjoyed their retirements knowing “the system” is a failure. The “wink and nod” is alive and well.

Till folks start to make sense you gotta fight hard for your rights as an intelligent person in this country who just wants to be left alone. Take for granted that your intelligence will be challenged and let go of the “sex wars” and the “hypocrisy hype”; you better worry more about the ever tightening reign on your freedom, they’ve been choking it more and more for 50 years.

Intellectual Bondage

I’m dedicated to highlighting ignorance that threatens my way of life and the lives of those a I love and care for. This “Race Lie” perpetrated by white and black bigots is so ignorant it’s shameful that any intelligent person would further the discourse, unless they’re seeking to gain something.

The slavery issue is discussed in this country as if time began when the first ship sailed to America. If you were to study slavery as a human condition you would have to go back from that voyage a couple thousand years. Slavery as an instrument of governing goes back in time thousands of years. The race of the slave has changed back and forth over time and no race owns the badge for “worst treatment”; although the way some folks (of all colors) talk today you’d think they actually had a “slavery experience”.

Muslim slavery of whites, Egyptian slavery of Jews, even the ideological slavery of Stalins Russia are a few examples of the types or victims of slavery. When we research types of slavery, population and slavery, or finance and slavery we get a glimpse into the human psyche.

If we look at types of slavery we have to scan history for everything from the wife in a paternal society to the early human slaves captured in wars. Bondage, servitude, and indenture are some of the condition less talked about, but often more dangerous.

African slaves brought to America were the last group of people to be enslaved without scrutiny from most western governments. America ended the institution of slavery in about 90 years of its founding; an institution probably as old as mankind and clans. Nobody will say it was done right, but it was done and we took off towards today.

So if your out there playing the race card for some ideal that had dwindled down from activists holding you in intellectual bondage, free yourself and research your ignorance before you run around thinking intelligent folks are gonna shut their mouths; we’re fed up, and don’t owe nobody shit!!!

Running in Circles

Long ago and far away
I lived to see another day

The clouds were low
And spirits high
I soared to close
And wondered why

Fearless I travel
With heart and mind wide open
I found my soul’s light

Beyond the clouds I dreamt
Lying in the myst of time
Awaiting what life meant
Struggling through reason and rhyme

Sunlight created a darkness
That closed my eyes to why
And hope melted in my blood
Till my pulse no longer kept time.

So why does the world turn
Spinning my soul to burn
When light is the path I choose
For faith my beliefs won’t lose

Edgy
No longer here
My body a vessel
Wandering with my soul in tow
Return

Through narrow paths and gorges
My journey meanders aimlessly
Elements taking sides against me
my bones clatter like dry branches
Swaying in the winters eve

Numb feet and thoughts stumble
Along frozen paths and fears

Momentum pushes or propels
And all I want to do is soar

Slowly I awaken to the mornings whisper

Light plays along the horizon mocking my dreams

My spirits rise slowly as I leave the night behind

The sun slowly crawls along my spine as the night peels away one vertebrae at a time, now I look on
Leaving the skin I shed behind

Darkness falls and rises as the sun
Searching the earth for time
And a place to rest

For me there is no rest, for I must stay awake to keep the world turning. When I finally drift off I take the world with me and maybe ill never return. Either way the dream lives to see another day. So all I ever did was run in circles.
