THIS SOLEMN OATH WE MAKE!‏

This is the solemn oath every person who serves in our governments and military and police departments make.  How many among all these who take this solemn oath betray it and commit treason against it?  My list is long, especially when it comes to those who serve in high office within our federal government.  For those who serve as police in PD’s across the nation, my list is mixed.  But for those who serve in our U.S. Military–my list of betrayers and traitors is just about non-existent.  Yours?

Patrick The Poet

THE SOLEMN OATH:

I , __________, do solemnly swear or affirm that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic. That I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same. That I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, risking my life, my fortune, and my sacred honor, so help me God.

I ran into a high speed rail lover who hadn’t read our dynamic railroad and HSR book Fast Trains. He was shocked. So was I. But he quickly got our book and is reading it now. So his life is in balance again, thank God, and he will live! How about you, you still alive? 😮

IN GOD WE TRUST!

Check out these preambles to our 50 states.  And all this time I thought we were an Islamic or atheistic country and that  Christianity and God had and have absolutely nothing to do with our heritage and founding as a nation.  I mean, the liberal media told me so, so it has to be true, right? lol

These ought to get your gray matter sparking and cogitating and appreciating the meaning of freedom!

Patrick The Poet

 

THIS WEEK’S BAR QUOTES – (from 06-29-09)

All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree. All these aspirations are directed toward ennobling man’s life, lifting it from the sphere of mere physical existence and leading the individual towards freedom.
–Albert Einstein

They who would give up an essential liberty for temporary security, deserve neither liberty or security.
–Benejamin Franklin

If you want to be free, there is but one way; it is to guarantee an equally full measure of liberty to all your neighbors. There is no other.
–Carl Shurz

A brief candle; both ends burning
An endless mile; a bus wheel turning
A friend to share the lonesome times
A handshake and a sip of wine
So say it loud and let it ring
We are all a part of everything
The future, present and the past
Fly on proud bird
You’re free at last.
–Charlie Daniels

You can only protect your liberties in this world by protecting the other man’s freedom. You can only be free if I am free.
–Clarence Darrow

The only way to make sure people you agree with can speak is to support the rights of people you don’t agree with.
–Eleanor Holmes Norton

Freedom is like taking a bath — you have to keep doing it every day!
–Florynce Kennedy

The only sure bulwark of continuing liberty is a government strong enough to protect the interests of the people, and a people strong enough and well enough informed to maintain its sovereign control over the government.
–Franklin Delano Roosevelt

Who would be free themselves must strike the blow. Better even to die free than to live slaves.
–Frederick Douglass

None are so hopelessly enslaved as those who falsely believe they are free.
–Goethe

The trouble with free elections is, you never know who is going to win.
–Leonid Brezhnev

It is by the goodness of God that in our country we have these three unspeakably precious things: freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and the prudence to practice neither.
–Mark Twain

Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!
–Patrick Henry

A right is not what someone gives you; it’s what no one can take from you.
–Ramsey Clark

For every man who lives without freedom, the rest of us must face the guilt.
–Lillian Hellman

THE LONELY LOOKING RAIN

LOVE IN RAIN3If you keep looking for love and never give up on finding it, there’s a much better chance that you will succeed in finding it and knowing what happiness is. Since I’ve experienced this myself, I know this to be true.  It can happen…even on the darkest, coldest and rainiest night or day and at the very moment you’re ready to give up.  It can happen.  And often does!

Patrick The Poet

THE LONELY LOOKING RAIN

For years I’ve stood out here in the lonely looking rain,
Counting the darkest clouds in the lonely looking sky.
Searching for someone to count my tears and feel my pain,
And sooth me with a soft kiss and a broken-hearted sigh.

For I’ve looked for you in sunshine and on sunny days
Where love had seemed warm and rife and always strolling by.
But dark and cloudy years only learned to count the ways
How brief is sunshine…and how quickly sunny skies can fly!

And so, I’d walk rainy streets looking for hope and love,
Thinking if I called your name, I might hear you reply;
And we might see more than lonely looking skies above
(And find something more from this life than dreams that only die!)

For one day you’d look and know your hopes were not in vain.
You’d see I’ve lived a lifetime for you to walk on by!
Then learning I’ve counted all your tears and felt your pain,
You’d know I’ve been waiting here in the lonely looking rain
To sooth you with a soft kiss and a broken-hearted sigh.
