Word Prompts

America’s Days for Vaunting are over, it seems!





From my email today very telling, I fear! A Word Prompt for today is VAUNT! Pray for the World!

 
Excellent portrayal of our lonely planet. Copied from an unknown Facebook page. Author unknown, yet quite erudite.

“Men, like nations, think they’re eternal. 
What man in his 20s or 30s doesn’t believe, at least subconsciously, that he’ll live forever?
  In the springtime of youth, an endless summer beckons.  As you pass 70, it’s harder to hide from reality.

Nations also have seasons: 
Imagine a Roman of the 2nd century contemplating an empire that stretched from Britain to the Near East, thinking: This will endure forever….
    Forever was about 500 years, give or take.

France was pivotal in the 17th and 18th centuries; 
 now the land of Charles Martel is on its way to becoming part of the Muslim ummah.

In the 19th and early 20th centuries, the sun never set on the British empire; 
 now Albion exists in a perpetual twilight. 
 Its 95-year-old sovereign is a fitting symbol for a nation in terminal decline.

In the 1980s, Japan seemed poised to buy the world. Business schools taught Japanese management techniques. Today, its birth rate is so low and its population aging so rapidly that an industry has sprung up to remove the remains of elderly Japanese who die alone.

I was born in 1942, almost at the midpoint of the 20th century – the American century.  America’s prestige and influence were never greater. Thanks to the ‘Greatest Generation,’ we won a World War fought throughout most of Europe, Asia and the Pacific.
 We reduced Germany to rubble and put the rising sun to bed.  It set the stage for almost half a century of unprecedented prosperity.

We stopped the spread of communism in Europe and Asia, and fought international terrorism.
 We rebuilt our enemies and lavished foreign aid on much of the world. 
 We built skyscrapers and rockets to the moon. 
We conquered Polio .  
We explored the mysteries of the Universe and the wonders of DNA…the blueprint of life.

But where is the glory that once was Rome? 
 America has moved from a relatively free economy to socialism – which has worked so well NOWHERE in the world.

We’ve gone from a republican government guided by a constitution to a regime of revolving elites.
 We have less freedom with each passing year.
 Like a signpost to the coming reign of terror, the cancel culture is everywhere. We’ve traded the American Revolution for the Cultural Revolution.

We can’t defend our borders, our history (including monuments to past greatness) or our streets. 
 Our cities have become anarchist playgrounds.
 We are a nation of dependents, mendicants, and misplaced charity. Homeless veterans camp in the streets while illegal aliens are put up in hotels.

The president of the United States can’t even quote the beginning of the Declaration of Independence
 (‘You know — The Thing’) correctly.
 Ivy League graduates routinely fail history tests that 5th graders could pass a generation ago. 
 Crime rates soar and we blame the 2nd. Amendment and slash police budgets.

Our culture is certifiably insane.
 Men who think they’re women. 
People who fight racism by seeking to convince members of one race that they’re inherently evil, and others that they are perpetual victims. 
A psychiatrist lecturing at Yale said she fantasizes about ‘unloading a revolver into the head of any white person.’

We slaughter the unborn in the name of freedom, while our birth rate dips lower year by year. 
 Our national debt is so high that we can no longer even pretend that we will repay it one day.
 It’s a $28+trillion monument to our improvidence and refusal to confront reality. 
Our ‘entertainment’ is sadistic, nihilistic and as enduring as a candy bar wrapper thrown in the trash. 
Our music is noise that spans the spectrum from annoying to repulsive.

Patriotism is called insurrection, treason celebrated, and perversion sanctified.  

 A man in blue gets less respect than a man in a dress.  We’re asking soldiers to fight for a nation our leaders no longer believe in. 

How meekly most of us submitted to Fauci-ism (the regime of face masks, lockdowns  and hand sanitizers) shows the impending death of the American spirit.

How do nations slip from greatness to obscurity?

• Fighting endless wars they can’t or won’t win • Accumulating massive debt far beyond their ability to repay •
 Refusing to guard their borders, allowing the nation to be inundated by an alien horde • 
 Surrendering control of their cities to mob rule • 
Allowing indoctrination of the young •
 Moving from a republican form of government to an oligarchy • 
Losing national identity • 
   Indulging indolence • 
Abandoning faith and family – the bulwarks of social order.

In America, every one of these symptoms is pronounced, indicating an advanced stage of the disease.

Even if the cause seems hopeless, do we not have an obligation to those who sacrificed so much to give us what we had? 
 I’m surrounded by ghosts urging me on: 
the Union soldiers who held Cemetery Ridge at Gettysburg, the battered bastards of Bastogne, those who served in the cold hell of Korea, the guys who went to the jungles of Southeast Asia and came home to be reviled and neglected.

This is the nation that took in my immigrant grandparents, whose uniform my father and most of my uncles wore in the Second World War.
 I don’t want to imagine a world without America, even though it becomes increasingly likely.

During Britain’s darkest hour, when its professional army was trapped at Dunkirk and a German invasion seemed imminent, Churchill reminded his countrymen,
 ‘Nations that go down fighting rise again, and those that surrender tamely are finished.’ 

The same might be said of causes. 
If we let America slip through our fingers, if we lose without a fight, what will posterity say of us?

While the prognosis is far from good, 
"only God knows  if America’s day in the sun is over”

Is Independence Day Over? — NEVER!

Thinking deeply of our FREEDOM … AND … The word Liberty A synonym for the word FREEDOM.

From Brainy Quotes I found — President George Washington said this about Liberty.

Liberty, when it begins to take root, is a plant of rapid growth.”

The image of the tree below is picture-perfect for the above quote.

Call me Liberty — No stopping me!

However, this another quote of George Washington should be a warning!


“If the freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”

The Statue of Liberty Past and Present

A story, perhaps not fiction, I wonder! Friday Fictioneers, hosted by Rochelle. Na’ama Yehuda contributed this week’s photo seen below.

One day looking through a collection of postcards, I found the Statue of Liberty card, which brought childhood memories of happier years long past.  The security, that gift from France, meant so much!  A famous landmark was representing freedom.

As they continue to change history, the children in school today will no longer read truth or wonder!  Those in "power" have introduced living in fear instead.  Control; it's happening; we see unfair treatment by those in authority — tyranny instead of freedom promoting fear instead of security. 

However,  America is still the best place to be.  God bless the U.S.A.

Had Enough America

Fraudulent Joe Biden delivered remarks from the White House on Tuesday and encouraged Americans to continue to cower in fear over a virus with a 99.98% survival rate.

“The virus is spreading because we have too many people who see the end in sight, think we’re at the finish line,” Biden said. “Let me be deadly earnest with you: we aren’t at the finish line…We’re still in a life and death race against this virus.”

Joe Biden previously told Americans that if we “do our part” by wearing masks and staying socially distanced we will be able to celebrate the 4th of July with a cookout or a barbecue in our backyards with family and friends.

Now Biden is saying only vaccinated Americans can celebrate the 4th of July.

“If we take the precautions I’ve been talking about, you’ll be able to have a 4th of July…

The Great American Betrayal

GO Dog

I wonder why! Don’t you?
Who is the real party of hate?
Who incites others to harass?

Harass those who want Free Speach.
Harass Trump supporters or worse?


Laugh and approve as hatefuls pose
with a severed head of the President?

Boo, Hoo, and wah-wah they cry mommy,
all the way home! You poor little dears.

Are you so offended AGAIN!



Although it feels AND WE are in that ship! Remember!
Remember a story; Matthew 8;24
It is written: “And behold a great tempest arose in the sea, so that the boat was covered with waves, but He was asleep. And they came to Him, and awaked Him, saying: Lord, save us, we perish.
And Jesus saith to them: Why are you fearful, O ye of little faith?

Our day is coming and sooner than you may believe.

Instruction Booklet for the Machine

The haibun is the combination of two poems: a prose poem and haiku. The form was popularized by the 17th century Japanese poet Matsuo Basho. Both the prose poem and haiku typically communicate with each other, though poets employ different strategies for this communication—some doing so subtly, while others are more direct.

Cracking America! They Try!
The machine will try, try again!
Let’s see how far hmmm, a virus=control!
“Peaceful protests” with stand-down orders.
Censorship, free speech is out!
The election begins; it’s Trump vs. the Machine.
Tra-la ♫… make it obvious, the cheating.
Importantly don’t hide the fraud; just deny it!
Drag the counting on and on, oh! the suspense,
Yes, yes, the anxiety too! Our perfect candidate,
He has no clue. One more ingredient, VISIBILITY!
Let them see our occult, overt activity.
Announce a winner! For a short time!
Little by little, remove this Victory!
It’s happening as the machine has planned.
Citizens, our plan, their anger, they reach for weapons.
The war begins, the machine celebrates!
A Civil War, the Crack! They THINK!

The Haiku

Hate crimes never win
Spoke too soon; now a surprise
Truth always rises

For what its WORTH … to You!

The Wordle of WORDS are:

My first thought was to PASS on this wordle, yet, my brain quickly turned to the MAINSTREAM NEWS known as those who brown noses or PANDER to one side! As SHOCKing seems to some, in reality, they are DESIGNed that you and I FALL in LINE!
FILL the gap with inconsistency is the method of operation.
Many come to America because they COVET the USA; some come to dishonor our STRIPES of red, white, and blue. Their ears only hear the WILD fake news of the PRESS who MINE but can’t find the dirt they seek.
Thank God for the great awakening and 4 more years of Truth, Justice, and the American way.

Be careful what you VOTE for!

In 1776, 56 men signed the Declaration of Independence, knowing that their actions would be viewed as treason by the prevailing power.  Should the revolution fail, they were signing their death certificates.

Indeed, many paid a heavy price.  Five were captured, tortured, and killed.  Nine more were killed in the fighting and the hardships it produced.  Many sacrificed sons, homes, and livelihoods.  But these brave patriots helped win America’s independence and set it on a path to become a constitutional republic.

Fast-forward a mere 240 years. A group of corrupt and craven people gathered in secret to once again consider radical actions.  But, unlike the Declaration’s signers, they were the prevailing power and intended to remain so, fully confident in their complete control of government, the media, the Judiciary, academia, entertainment, and nearly every form of cultural power.
