Volunteers

Volunteers of America

Outside my back door
Between the logs of a depleted woodpile
A volunteer sunflower shot up
Unfolding its golden peddles and shines

God knows what breeze blew it along
Or how and why its seed found purchase
But there it stands alone, tall and proud
Not the tallest I've seen but it shines all the same

The protean wind and water blows
The Peidmont red clay soil relents
Roots take hold and growth begins
Until the flower is cut down and urned

Two of my friends became new US citizens this morning - one from Ireland the other from India - and I saw the former Irishman after confirmation at lunchtime and asked him how it went. "Great, 74 people form 41 countries of origin all new US citizens - they even took away my green card", he said. I asked him if he had to take a written test and he informed me that applicants for citizenship don't do written tests anymore but instead each person has a personal interview with a DHS agent who quizzes them with questions like, "are you a terrorist?" or "have you ever transported explosive material for a terrorist organization?" and according to the Feds it's amazing how many terrorists answer truthfully. Still a good idea to know the answers to a US Citizenship test evan if you don't need to use them.

I'm not sure of all the questions I'd have on my Citizenship test, but something about the Jefferson Airplane and their song Volunteers would defiantly be among the 100 because I think it captures the essence of July 4th and the spirit of independence that's been lost in our DHS new order.
Hey, now it's time for you and me
Got a revolution (got to revolution)
Hey, come on now we're marching to the sea
Got a revolution (got to revolution)
Who will take it from you, we will and who are we?
Well, we are volunteers of America (volunteers of America)
Volunteers of America (volunteers of America)
I've got a revolution
Got a revolution.


May the revolution live on - forever and ever more.

Blue Devils and Yellow Cowards

A few weeks ago Duke lost Coach K’s last game at Camron Indoor Stadium to the schools hated rival, North Carolina University, in an epic grudge match. It was an “ unacceptable ” finale for the maniacal ferret-faced competitor who created the 40 year dynastic Duke hoops program with 1,000+ wins and fists full of ACC and NCAA championships but for Tar Heels everywhere it was a day of retribution. Michael  William Krzyzewski, is a red-blooded All-American college basketball coach of Polish and Ukrainian descent who grew up in Chicago’s famous Ukrainian Village which is (or at least was) culturally very reminiscent of the Rus borderlands. That is to say that young S h-shef-ski   grew up as  far away (psychology) from Dixie as is possible while still living within the borders of the USA. That makes him the perfect choice to represent Duke University and the Yankee overachievers who emigrate to Durham for 4 years of education and networking before moving back to non-Southern civilization.

Who voted for this guy?

Who voted for this guy? It's been ten days since the results of the Maricopa County, Arizona ballot audit were released to the public and presented at a hearing held by the state senate. This exercise in democratic accountability had been going on for months and, if reports are to be believed, was completed well over a  month before the September 24th hearing where   overwhelming proof of an illegitimate election was presented to lawmakers . The audit showed multiple irregularities, fake ballots, duplicate counts, errors, omissions and egregious acts of sabotage and obstinance by the Maricopa County board of supervisors who did everything they could to withhold and destroy evidence of wrongdoing from the citizen sleuths. The misfeasance of Arizona's political leaders was clearly defined, shocking and (for some) beyond belief but somehow these facts were discovered, organized, packaged and suppressed for MONTHS by the Cyber Ninjas who were attempting to "get to the bottom&q

Mask Off

U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle finally did it - after 14 months of mandatory masking by order of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) this capricious and ineffectual edict has been ruled unconstitutional and, it follows, illegal.  Since January 29, 2021 the CDC has prohibited citizens to travel without wearing a mask but the insanity actually started as far back as July 14, 2020 when " CDC calls on Americans to wear masks to prevent COVID-19 spread ." That's 643 days of stupidity folks - it covers the Kenosha Riots, the attempted kidnapping of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, the Fake 2020 Election, the 1/6 Save America March and Insurrection, Jo(((K)))e Brandon's phony Inauguration, Trump's 2nd Impeachment, a horrible year of pathetic "leadership" from every single elected official in Washington DC, a war in Eastern Europe - and NOW, at long last, a federal judge in Florida ends the mask tyranny with one simple ruling from her bench.
