Ted Legs

Along the road I found a frog
who told me his name is Ted.
Now Ted looked scared, I suppose,
cuz i stepped very near his head.

“Watch out!” Ted shouted loud and said
“Didn’t you see me here?”
“fraid not” said I with a sense of dread,
“never seen a frog named Ted anywhere.”

“Well I’m he, you sightless old Mister!” …
Ted said in anger-fied way.
(His face all puffy like a big ol’ blister!)
“What do you have to say?”

“I think you need to walk up here where people can see you.”
But that made Ted mad I think.
Cuz he just hopped away.
Real slow like.
hop….





hop….

I think it’s hard to make a dramatic exit if you are a frog named Ted.
But then a car rolled by and smashed him.
Too bad. I warned him to walk up where people could see him.
I think Ted might a had a couple of screws loose or sumfin.
We’ll be havin frog legs tonight…
What kind of wine does one serve with stupid-ass Ted legs?


King George and Irony

Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Franklin, Hamilton…. These names are just a few of the brave men who stood up against tyranny under the threat of capital punishment. A standing death warrant was issued and signed by King George for all of the men who fought the British during our American Revolution. That is because King George did not accept their insurrection as a war. He and the entire British government considered the colonist’s move toward independence as nothing more than a criminal uprising perpetrated by rabble-rousers. King George had in his Windsor Castle an indoor room with a seat and a pot underneath – for crapping. That is where he hung the colonist’s Declaration of Independence. So people could use it to wipe with. And the fact is that each day that these brave, intelligent and freedom-seeking men lived and breathed, they did so in the sheer terror that they could be apprehended and hung by the neck until dead at any moment. Freedom was that important to them.

In fact, one of the so-called “rabble-rousers” famously said “Give me liberty or give me death,” thereby openly defying the king’s death warrants. His name was Patrick Henry, and he went on to lead the effort to force the adoption of the Bill of Rights into our constitution as a means to curtail the newly formed federal government from usurping the powers away from our citizens and our great states. Unfortunately, the federal government reversed the spirit of the Bill of Rights with the 14th amendment, making themselves, being the federal government, the enforcer of those 10 enumerated rights as they applied to how the states treated their own citizens. They turned it upside down. The 14th amendment made states subservient to the federal government. Ironic that the Bill of Rights was created to avoid that. Sure, most people point to the idea in the amendment that all persons born in the United States would now be considered citizens. And I agree that was necessary verbiage in light of the freedom of slaves. But it’s the pork in the 14th amendment that needs to be struck down. ie., The ridiculous notion that the federal government rules over the states. Surely Patrick Henry is rolling in his grave over that. More importantly, it’s the thing that makes federal politicians today think they have the authority to tell you to wear a mask, to call someone by gender pronouns which they prefer, to usurp the second amendment which clearly states shall not be infringed…. “Doh, you know the thing…” Right, Joe? It doesn’t say “well it’s ok if you infringe in little baby steps like taking this gun away or that ammunition away.” No. That’s not what it says. In fact, there is only a period after “Shall not be infringed.” That round dot is called a period, which ends the sentence and the amendment. It’s round, but it’s not a loop. Nor is it a loophole that would allow anyone to infringe on our rights. The spirit of the 2nd amendment was to keep the citizenry armed at least to the same power of the federal government so that if tyranny should ever show it’s dodgy, old, Alzheimer’s riddled face the citizenry could take their country back. Period.

The people of the United States recently witnessed their system of voting completely destroyed by fraud. The election was stolen by fraud and concerted deception – as you might see done in some third world nation – and ironically often at the behest of America’s own CIA or State Department operations. Now they simply did it to ourselves as though it were a perfectly normal thing to do. And there are 76 million Americans who saw it happen and are outraged.

Our current federal government is nervous. I suppose at the time, during the heated campaign trail, when angry words flared and temperaments soared above normal societal norms, their sheer, frothing hatred for President Trump caused them to believe that he was such an inherently terrible and evil human that any measure to take the country away from him would be justified, including scheming to steal an election. All is fair in love and war, they say. But in newborn light of the next day, as they muddle through the hangover of their diabolical hate intoxication – they begin remembering little parts that they played, little schemes and mysterious ballots and the stench of something born of lunacy suddenly starts alarming what little sense of decency they have left. And now, in the light of new day, without the cloud of hatred obscuring their view of themselves – they are in fear.

Recently the FCC notified ARRL and every amateur radio operator in the United States that using their ham radios for the purpose of “crimes” is illegal. Criminal. Not war-time combatants, such as revolutionaries like Washington and Jefferson. But the government fears that the people will rise up and use ham radios for communication during a new revolution. If they didn’t feel guilty about stealing an election then why would they now fear that the people will rise up against them? Why were 26,000 troops ordered to D.C. on the day of inauguration. And no, I won’t capitalize that word when it applies to Joe Biden. To use a phrase from Joe, a phrase he used when answering questions about his alleged criminal son and his business partner, the Chinese government, “Nobody has said that.” Nobody has said they want to rise up against this government either Joe.

This much I know: I will not bear arms against my nation. The weird question is, though, if our nation has been stolen then, well, is it still our nation? That’s actually two questions. Time will eventually reveal the answers. If not now on this Earth then we will find out on Judgement day. On the day of reckoning, there will be nowhere to run. Nowhere to hide. All of our sins will be revealed. My advice is simply to love God. And to love one another. Do these things and you will enter into the everlasting kingdom of Heaven. The things of this world are all of debauchery and evil. Ignore them. Pray for those who perpetrate hatred and evil. And also let them know that radio waves can be visualized from space. Even WIFI waves can be made apparent on a digital screen. If covert communication would be needed, then communication would have to be done with microwaves, smoke signals, or modulated laser beams. (Which can actually travel many miles. Laser beams can be reflected off the surface of the moon or be focused horizontally above the Earth’s surface for hundreds of miles.) But these signals should not be transmitted from a grounded station like a home or building. They are more easily detected visually than EM radio waves. So a small com-transmission package should be attached to a small flying drone operated by an Arduino chip to fly to a particular area and altitude, point in the proper direction, and send the modulated beam at a distinct time so the recipient will be prepared to capture the message. Again the recipient would use a drone in a remote area to detect the message. The sending Arduino should then issue the command to destroy itself and all elements on or in it.

Just joking! LOL! Our democracy will survive this people. It is certainly the worst actual sinful thing I’ve witnessed against our nation. But so what? We’re not whining cry babies and we certainly aren’t going to mimic the shameless actions displayed by the loony left for the last 4 years. By contrast we actually have moral and ethical standards. We won’t react by using fraud to steal elections. We only need to get better at detecting when they do it. I honestly thought Trump was prepared for that. And we also don’t need to commit violence. We are the majority. Don’t let all the outright lying from the media and 1 percenters in big tech and oil fool you. They are only in office through blackmail and fraud. Not because they have a majority consensus. In the end it’s just like Hank Jr. says: We will survive. And for those of you trying to trap mild-mannered respectable Americans into some sort of weird entrapment over ham radios, you should be ashamed of yourselves. And you’re working for the wrong side anyway. Please just put some thought into what you are doing.


John Wayne’s World

John Wayne once said “If there are 12 men in a room and you give each of them a dollar, when you come back in 10 years one man will have most of those 12 dollars.”

That is true no matter what sign you hang on the door of that room. Socialism, Communism, Marxism, or Capitalism. There will always be an elite few in any system that ends up with the majority of the resources.

The trick is to develop a system that uses the natural human sense of greed to benefit all members of society and not just an elite few. And if you think you are above the greed that all humans share then you might want to keep reading.

Only one of the above economical models uses human greed to an advantage for all citizens. That’s capitalism. Those who get rich in capitalisms can only stay rich or get richer by allowing those below them enough money to buy their goods. Capitalisms insures that a middle class will exist.

Those who get rich by socialism, Marxism, or communism do not need the people below them to have money. In fact the elites in such systems actually require the people beneath them to remain poor in order for themselves to stay rich. There is simply no middle class. Resources are owned by the elites, and they have no competition which means that they can demand anything of their i9mpoverished people for basic necessities like food and water.

In such a nation of 90% impoverished people, like Venezuela, where people must develop black markets and learn to lie and break laws merely to stay alive, what are their chances of getting their government to organize some plan to combat greenhouse gasses or global warming? How interested will these starving people be in saving the whales or other animals in jeopardy of extinction? If they spend most of their day scrounging around dumps and trash pits to find bits of wood to heat their one-room homes during the winter, how much concern will they have for state-run police agencies that go rogue and kill political opponents? Do you think they will organize a protest against their government while their children go hungry at night? Do you think they will even return home alive after attending any such protests? Do you really think they will be allowed to protest their socialist/communist government?

When the Covid virus took hold in the U.S. consumers went out on a mad rush to purchase toilet paper. For those of you reading this 100 years from now, yes, I said we had a mad run on toilet paper. Stores had trouble keeping it stocked and people were stockpiling several months supplies of it.

At the time of this writing the majority of people in socialist run Venezuela have not seen toilet paper in years. It was gone form their commodities long before Covid was released. In other mostly socialist nations around the world finding toilet paper in a public restroom is extremely rare because the citizenry steals it as soon as it gets stocked. These governments think the answer is to develop mechanical ways to prevent the theft of toilet paper from public restrooms. The rest of us know that is not the answer. The answer is for these socialist nations to simply adopt a quasi-capatalism system like China has. It has made them the most powerful nation sustaining the largest population in the world.

For anyone who believes that ushering in socialism will somehow give you some advantage over others – unless you are at the top of the political food chain, my friend, you have been fooled by them. You will be soon forgotten once they get power.

The only reason we see these protests and riots currently destroying our inner cities is that we already live in the free-est nation that ever existed. We have full authority to voice our opinion on any topic at any time any where. We can go protest the police or global warming any time and be assured that afterwards we can come home safely to our comfortable air-conditioned or heated home and enjoy things like Hamburger helper that at least 50% of the rest of the world’s population can only envy. We can enjoy our daily heated shower and indoor plumbing which flushes the waste of our lives completely away, including the toilet paper that we wipe our butts with. We can get in our affordable automobile and drive anywhere we want to – literally anywhere in the world because U.S. citizens are welcome around the globe. You can create a commodity or sell a commodity or work in a factory with a 401k that insures your retirement. The average American goes from cradle to grave without being hungry or homeless for a single day of his or her life. And during that life he receives the best medical treatment that has ever been available in the history of the world. That’s because some capitalist invented the x-ray, the cat-scan, the other scan I can’t even remember the name of right now, even penicillin was created by a capatalist and it has saved my own life at least once. This new vaccine coming for Covid was created by a capatalist system in record breaking time of any vaccine ever.

So, tell me honestly, what exactly is socialism supposed to fix? Rogue racist cops? We already have laws against rogue racist cops. We all want them put into prison. There is no argument there. Antifa, the terrorists who want to beat us and force us into submission? That’s pretty much the definition of fascism.

If you think socialism is the answer to all of your ailments then please move to a socialist country. Because as our president, President Trump has said, and millions of us agree, “This country will never become socialist.”


Forgotten Moments

Tender things soothe us.
Like a kitten’s purr in fall –
Just a moment’s paw(se).



Tombstone Haiku

We are just tombstones,
melting away in the rain.
Soon to be nothing.



My Garden Now

Green beans sprouting in their own time.
Artichokes are still hiding ‘neath the soil.
Radishes perky green and pinky tops glowing.
Dandelions keep attacking the lettuce – Lettuce pray!
Eggplant’s long and waxy shiny tubes in the Sun.
Now that’s why this garden was begun!

Created for the wonderful group at D’verse Poets…. Victoria Slotto’s challenge of writing a quadrille – 44 words incorporating any variety of the word Garden… Extra Surprise – this one is an acrostic! too!


Flatter Yourself

It’s hard not to notice.

That you think of we as us.

And it boggles me because

I work hard at keeping you as nothing.

It’s not about you, Miss center of the universe.

You babbling attention grabbing center of this verse.

Oh me, oh my, he’s written something again,

And I’m sure it’s about me and my witchy hairy chin.

So listen to me and my crazy rant, so you will protect me from his irrelevance.

Watch him and hound him for my every chance,

To crucify and pierce him with my petty little lance.

For once long ago he showed me his soul. And so I must destroy him. It’s my one and only goal.

It might help you to know, you deluded squak,

That except for now I’ve never written or talked

About you.

Stop flattering yourself.


Dark December Day

Never a darker December has been than this grey, grey, grey day. An emotionless sky melts into the farthest reach of emotionless earth, not even a seam to remark of. Everywhere the absence of light. And life. An occasional silhouette of leaf-less tree skeleton strains to be viewed in the wash of a distant neighbor’s Christmas light display. Sometimes a twinkle. Reminiscent, faintly, of stars i think that once were here. But maybe that was a dream. So many years. So many fallen stars. And now this. A grey so thick and invasive that its tendrils sweep into my soul and drag me into its clutches, the grey earth and sky. No longer a player of life. No longer accounted among the strident. Just a minor ash in the great torrent of liquid grey which is now everything and nothing at once, raging to where the unknown and always avoided has been. And i let it take me where it will. I submit with prayers to God. For the earth is indeed this grey river of nothingness. And it belongs to Satan the Petty, the seeker of all that he is not and can never be. For he is hatred, and nothingness, and calls us “Deplorable” because we see his sinister plan to steal souls. As he told Eve at the Tree of Knowledge, so he tells the young abandoned women of our age that their ability to kill their own child is of their own power and not of the free will God imposed upon each and every one of us. They trick others into believing that lustful sex acts are natural and those who say otherwise are the true deplorables and haters. Rather than this plea being seen as a beacon to my brothers and sisters in this world to help them avoid the trickery of Satan, it will be held up by Satan and called hatred in many forms, accusing my words of being deplorable. “And you will be tortured and cast down in my name. But persevere and the tribulation will be shortened for your sake.” I don’t think there’s any question. The devil is winning this world. This impeachment circus is an obvious sign that chaos is replacing wisdom in this atmosphere of complete and utter delusion. And we stand helpless in this grey world without recourse. Save the hope of Michael swooping down from Heaven to smite them with his mighty sword i can see no other return to sanity before these imps destroy the world with their unabashed and unashamed hatred of all things Godly. And all this amidst their delusional and complete ignorance of that fact. Their minds tell them they are righteous, so much that they can sin and lie and cheat and steal to achieve their develish goals. Because they hail themselves as the purveyers of all that is good. But as Matthew wrote in chapter 25, they will be surprised on judgement day. And so will we all. Which means i will be going to hell with them. You can join this grey torentious waterfall to hell with me or you can save yourself. Go clean, feed, clothe, and shelter a homeless person today. Visit a repentant lonely soul in hospice or prison today. Search for the hungry, the meek and the mild to soothe them with sustenance or companionship. These are the actions God asks of us. Not to pretend we are superior to our political rivals. That is nothing. NOTHING but stumbling blocks for Gods other children. And woe to we who prevent His children from reaching Him. Everyone of us is created in the image of God. All are worthy of love. Those who pick and choose are not true saints of God. Beware of their message and know it is cloaked in chaos and senselessness.


Liquidity of Air

Air is not nothing.  Since we can see through air and are mostly desensitized to the weight of its mass constantly pushing down on us and surrounding us, we can easily be lulled into the misperception that air is empty – comprised of nothing.  But that’s not true.  In fact a cup of air has more atoms than a cup of water.    When we pour water into an empty cup it’s not actually empty.  It’s filled with air atoms that are then displaced by the heavier water.   Water flows in, air gets pushed out.

Air atoms are what make airplane flight possible, by the way.  The air atoms traveling over the top of a curved wing move much faster than the air atoms traveling under the near flat wing.  This causes a decrease in pressure on top of the wing allowing for lift.  Here’s a tip for you aeronautical engineers out there: if you can find a way to slow down the air under the wing then the lift will become greater and easier.  Just saying.  Why do the “next step” processes in scientific advancement sometimes take decades or centuries?  It’s like we are all having collective brain farts.  It only stands to reason that if the faster air on top of the wing increases lift then slowing or compressing the air underneath the wing would increase lift also.  But I digress.

Air atoms are striated in our atmosphere too, like aged bourbon in an oak barrel.  If you open a bourbon barrel after 12 or 15 years you will see that the lighter materials – especially dangerous and very light alcohols like methanol – have settled toward the top.  And the heavier materials like darker bourbon and particulate matter settle toward the bottom.

Air does the same thing.  Lighter atoms settle toward the top of the atmosphere and heavier atoms settle toward the ground.  So air is striated by weight.

The big question, at least in my mind, is why do things striate by their “heaviness?”  Scientists and laymen like myself have argued this question ad infinitum, or until the cows come home.  The bottom line is simple though: we all agree that there is something pulling on atmospheric atoms from earth in order to keep them in our atmosphere.  Some sort of force is keeping the water in our lake beds and ocean beds.

Of course, duh,  every sixth grader knows that the force holding things onto the planet is gravity.  The problem is that gravity is – as of yet – unexplained.  We enjoy a simplified understanding of what gravity does.  We just don’t know how it does it.  Which is OK for now.

Again, it’s not entirely true that the Earth’s gravity holds atoms in place.  We know for example that thousands of metric tons of hydrogen atoms escape from the Earths atmosphere every year and float off to some other gravitational pull.  My guess is towards the Sun or Jupiter, the two largest bodies of mass in our solar system.

It doesn’t matter though because it will be replaced eventually.  What’s important is why hydrogen floats off.  And that’s pretty easy too.  Hydrogen is the lightest element at 1.007 atomic weight units.  So naturally in a gravity situation it gets “displaced” to the top of the atmosphere.  Helium is another story.  At 4.002 atomic weight it will be less likely replaced because of it’s weight, among other things.  Among them is the fact that helium does not react with other molecules to form molecules, and therefore will not get “weighted down.”  The only reason we have helium is that it is trapped under geologic formations.    Once released it will float off into space like it’s lighter hydrogen counterparts.

Why can we see water?  Because we would drown if we couldn’t see the difference between air and water.  It’s a survival thing.

I try to get around making mistakes on environmental math by thinking of air as a liquid, – lite style.  And there are different layers of air too, depending on how high it is.  For instance, oxygen is hard to find above certain altitudes.  So the “oxygenated layer” is pretty much constrained to being down here with us Earth walkers.  Above that is another, lighter layer. And above that is another, lighter layer.  etc., etc…..  It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that turbulence is just the jagged waves on top of one layer where it meets the next, upper light layer.  “Waves?  I don’t see no stinkin’ waves!”  Well, that’s pretty much my point.  We can’t see them.

So why are layers separated by their lightness, or weight?  Well, most people explain that with the word gravity.  The problem there is that gravity, in fact, is only a word.  It’s not a definition.

 

 


Happy Halloween 2019

It was a cold, cold late October eve,
the moon sat just above the trees.

Crunch, crunch, the fallen leaves complained –
as their once vibrant lives now only maimed –
by the weight of my steps over them.
That I should crush them in my eagerness,
Selfishness……
to go where I may.

What future beast shall come to trample my grave?
In my afterlife of heaven or gray….
And will I disdain him that privilege to go where he may?
That my fallen old soul was once young and played?
When souls met and loved and lived –
to nothing now but dust on a walk way,
Unknowing…….
Uncaring that my own life meant something.
Or nothing.
As he walks over my remains.
Softly my settling dust will whisper, “But I was.”

Happpy Halloween……
