Rushing Through the Day!

By L. Don Oliver

I had no time for family,

I had no time to pray;

I had no time for the youth,

Rushing through the day;

I had no time for the needy,

Yet, I found plenty of time to play;

I had no time for the sick,

Rushing through the day;

I had no time for the elderly,

What more is left to say;

Busy with my own life,

Rushing through the day;

When I reached the Pearly Gates,

I asked; "Lord, what shall I do?";

God replied as he closed the gates,

"I have no time for you";

A Tall Tales Winter!

By L. Don Oliver

The sun is shinning bright,

With a warming delight,

In a Winter of our content;

No thought of the North,

Summer apparel we sport,

Of this we willingly consent;

Snow clouds are building,

A warm front is shielding,

From the frozen shroud;

Pine trees begin scowling,

To the Northeast they are bowing,

From the screaming wind's loud;

The tree line once standing,

Is no longer commanding,

The pleaures of it's sight;

The disappearance of it's form,

That once came with each morn,

Leave's only feelings of fright;

What's bad for the Drake,

Maybe good for the Snake,

But, no one really knows;

We still have to defend,

On what reality sends,

After a destructive wind blows;

Swampyville's - The Herd Mentality!
by Swamptown
Jan 31, 2013 | 1750 views | 0 0 comments | 37 37 recommendations | email to a friend | print | permalink
Excerpt from the Swampyville Gazette!

Reading between the Lines!

TODAY'S POLITICS:  YOU CAN SIT ON THE LEFT KNEE - YOU CAN SIT ON

THE RIGHT KNEE AND NEVER HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT "MISTER IN BETWEEN",

BECAUSE HE HAS BEEN RENDERED IMPOTENT!

The Herd Mentality!

The term herd mentality is the word herd, meaning "group of animals",

and mentality, implying a certain frame of mind. However the most

succinct definition would be: "how large numbers of people follow in

certain directions at the same times and never care where they are being

led".

Herd behavior is distinguished from herd mentality because it applies

to all animals, whereas the term mentality implies a uniquely human

phenomenon. Herd mentality implies a fear-based reaction to peer

pressure which makes individuals follow in order to avoid the feeling

of being "left behind" from the group. Herd mentality is also sometimes

known as "mob mentality".  Actually, there is little differance between

herd behavior and herd mentality when it comes to Politics!!

The Herd Roundup!

Large numbers of cattle live in a semi-wilderness

state on the open range (suburbia) and are left to graze,

mostly untended, for much of the time. In many cases, different

ranchers (elitists/government) have formed "associations" (Special

Interests - both, Democratic/Republican)) and graze their cattle

together on the same range (Liberal Colleges/Universities). In

order to later determine the "ownership" of these animals, they

are marked with a distinctive brand (Social Security Number), applied

usually while the cattle are still young calves. The primary cattle

breed seen on the open range is the Caucasian Peon, descended from

the original European Caucasian Peon imported in the 16th century,

though other breeds of cattle were also imported, including the more

hardier African Conscript (Slaves), Hispanic Illegals (undocumented

workers? - mainly Mexican) and Asian breeds to increase profits

(votes/taxes)!

In order to find young calves for branding (brainwashing), and to sort

out mature (Middle Class) animals intended for market, ranchers hold a

roundup, every year during April.  A roundup requires a number of

specialized skills on the part of Progressive cowboys (Elitists/Politicians)

and horses (Biased Media). Individuals who separate tax paying cattle from

the herd require the highest level of skill and ride specially trained

"cutting" horses (Biased Media), trained to follow the movements of cattle,

capable of stopping and turning faster than other horses (Unbiased Media).

Once the cattle are sorted, most cowboys are required to rope young calves

and restrain them to be branded and (in the case of some male calves)

castrated. Often it is also necessary to restrain older cattle, who have

out lived their usefulness (reaching Social Security age) and have become

a burden on the ranchers and no longer are profitable. These older cattle

are eventually driven to glue factories!

A large number of horses (Biased Media) are needed for a roundup. Each

cowboy requires several fresh horses (Media Outlets) in the course

of a day's work. Horses themselves are also rounded up. It is common

practice for young foals to be born of tame (brainwashed) mares, but

allowed to grow up "wild" in a semi-wilderness  state on the open range.

There are also "uncompromising" herds, often known as Mustangs (Grass root

Movements). Both types are rounded up, and the animals tamed (brainwashed),

a process called horse breaking, or "bronco-busting", usually performed by

Progressive cowboys who specialize in manipulating horses. In some cases,

extremely brutal methods are used to tame horses, and such animals tended

to never be completely reliable (Tea Party). However, the cowboys became

aware of the need to treat animals in a more progressive (Manipulating)

fashion and modified their horse training methods (Adjusted Marxist Socialism),

often re-learning techniques used by their predecessors, particularly those

of the Marxist Socialist tradition. Horses trained in this altered progressive

fashion are more reliable and useful for a wider variety of tasks; such as,

herding the cattle into an urban environment until they are ready for the

"Slaughter House".

The cattle are contented as long as the ranchers furnish them their every need!

For those of you that are concerned about future (programmed) tax paying

cattle - Let not your insignificant heart be troubled - They will be created,

with altered genes, by artificial means in a Laboratory!
