A COMMENTARY FROM THE HEART

TL A COMMENTARY FROM THE HEART (23)SOCIALISMLEARN ABOUT SOCIALISM

I’m old enough to remember when the words socialism and communism were regarded as evil in the United states.  The freedoms and capitalism our country was founded on were to be guarded and protected above everything else.

Democracy is two wolves and a lamb deciding what to have for dinner. Liberty is a well-armed lamb.  – Benjamin Franklin

Since I don’t have children, I’m not up to speed on what is being taught in the school system, but it’s my suspicion that history lessons are not at the top of the list…  am I right?  A couple of encounters with the youth of Wichita, Kansas has shown me that they are not well-rounded in their knowledge of history.  People, if we don’t know where we came from and learn from past mistakes – we are surely bound to repeat them!

The socialist candidate makes it all sound so appealing, doesn’t he?  He’s going to GIVE some folks everything at no cost – well, isn’t that special???  Guess what…  A college education will still cost somebody – do they care about that?  Somebody’s taxes will go sky-high through the roof to GIVE others everything for free.  Does that matter?  Raising taxes by as much as 98% which is just crazy…  to GIVE a college education to another.

There is something in the capitalist world that accomplishes the same thing – they’re called SCHOLARSHIPS.  There are scholarships by the truckload that yes, have to be EARNED, but if you want a healthy chunk of your college education paid for – that’s possible in a capitalist nation!  No, nobody is going to give you a free lunch – because as my mother always told me – there’s no such thing as a FREE lunch.  Somebody is going to pay for the lunch – please remember that.

DIE FOR YOU

I love America, I love my freedom AND I want to uphold our precious CONSTITUTION.  Never in the history of this country has there been a socialist running for president.  I don’t want to feel the Bern…  our country would soon feel the burn from the Bern.  The insane part is that he’s not even a registered democrat…  huh???  How does that happen???

Look, I’m just asking that you have all the facts about Socialism before you vote.  As always, it’s my prayer that we are less red, less blue – and blend into a united purple as we kneel in prayer before our GOD to seek His face and turn from our wicked ways – only then will our sin-sick nation be supernaturally healed.

PRAYER FOR AMERICABe an informed voter.  Please read about the practice of SOCIALISM in other countries and pray in these last days before the election.  🙂

SQUIRREL APPRECIATION DAY

TL 1-21 SQUIRREL APPRECIATION DAY

 

1-21 CASEY & LACEY

These little rodents run around the back yard and make chattering noises at your dog.  They are squirrels and they are so fluffy and adorable, especially in the autumn and winter months.  Their little cheeks get filled with nuts and they go scurrying back to their home to stock up for the cold weeks to come.

It’s SQUIRREL APPRECIATION DAY!!!  I’ll do my best to appreciate them as long as they don’t run in front of my car.

Some folks eat squirrels and I guess it’s all a matter of how you are raised.  We don’t catch them and make pets out of them, but we don’t go out and shoot them for food either.  I know Miss Kay would think I was crazy for not eating them, but it’s just not how I was raised.

The squirrel that you kill in jest, dies in earnest.  – Henry David Thoreau

I hit one with my car one day by accident.  I felt so bad about it – poor little critter.  I thought I’d miss him ‘cuz he sort of came halfway into the street but then turned around to get out of the road – but then at the last second he turned again and…  well.

You know what song is runnin’ around in my mind, right???  Go on over to You Tube and watch the great Ray Stevens sing “The Mississippi Squirrel Revival”.

I contend that the revival only took place in Mississippi because the town’s name rhymes with Hallelujah.  LOL!!!  That just cracks me up.  If you had asked me before that song came out if you could rhyme it, I would have said no you cannot.  Guess I was wrong about that.

There are more than 200 species of squirrels.  Around here we have those nimble little brownish ones.  I’ve seen photos of gray squirrels and red squirrels.  They can leap 10 times their body length.   I can believe that because at our old house they used to jump from tree to tree and it really was pretty impressive to watch them.

I found this to be mildly disturbing – LOL

Are all Irish people afraid of squirrels???  Hmm…  I may need to research that.  Wink!  😉
