The Girl Who Lived Behind


The Girl Who Lived Behind
by
Gordon Kuhn
1/12/10

The quiet girl who lived behind
most surely, slowly lost her mind
for cursed she was in her mother’s womb
she now sleeps, lays lonely in her tomb

Her spirit un-trapped from flesh and bone
by knife’s edge she worked to hone
and laid her down in water warm
her thoughts now resting from their desperate swarm

The cut was quick, the blade was swift
and she began in slight pain to drift
and dreamt of days that might have been
were it not her curse from some unknown sin

That left her born an unpleasant sight
though she wished with all her might
for one dance at her high school prom
for one date with a boy named Tom

The dog she loved had been recent put away
and now she had not any need to stay
So alone she laid within her bath
and as the world slipped she gave a laugh

At an empty thought, the joke of life
for which for her had been but strife
she came, years later, stood next to me
two men, not known, spoke that she was now free

The shackles, bondage had slipped away
as life had drained she could not stay
but came years later wanting me to know
that she had simply had to go

And had wept that faultless night
her eyes burning in clouded sight
and stood before a bathroom mirror
and cursed her life, deaths choice the clearer.

The door had closed, I simply had to go
not knowing what to say, the tears did flow
an offer made by she for me to stay
but I had to leave to go my way

Disturbed I found her birthright curse
not grown enough myself to nurse
the lost and lonely bare laid feeling there
the hungry haunting sadly painful stare

And I in shame did in wild confusion slink away
while she said welcome, come please stay
stay this night and warm my bed
or else a broken heart shall leave me dead

A friend is all I need, nothing else
a friend is all I want, nothing else
Years passed and she sudden came
not to cast any shame or blame

Simply to say she’d passed and gone her way
But now her presence comes unexpected this day
Not to haunt and not to play
But just to say she could not stay.

545 PEOPLE


545 vs. 300,000,000     

Every Citizen Needs To Read This And Think About What This Journalist Has Scripted In This Message. Read It And Then Really Think About Our Current Political Debacle.

545 PEOPLE

By Charlie Reese

Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.

Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?

Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?

You and I don’t propose a federal budget. The president does.

You and I don’t have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.

You and I don’t write the tax code, Congress does.

You and I don’t set fiscal policy, Congress does.
You and I don’t control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.

One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.

I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.

I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a president to do one cotton-picking thing. I don’t care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator’s responsibility to determine how he votes.

Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.

What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall.. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits.. The president can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.

The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House? Nancy Pelosi. She is the leader of the majority party. She and fellow House members, not the president, can approve any budget they want. If the president vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.

It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted — by present facts — of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can’t think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.

If the tax code is unfair, it’s because they want it unfair.

If the budget is in the red, it’s because they want it in the red.

If the Army &Marines are in IRAQ, it’s because they want them in IRAQ.

If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it’s because they want it that way.

There are no insoluble government problems.
Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like “the economy,” “inflation,” or “politics” that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.

Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible.

They, and they alone, have the power.
They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses.

Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees.

We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

What you do with this article now that you have read it………. Is up to you.

This might be funny if it weren’t so darned true.

Be sure to read all the way to the end:

Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table
At which he’s fed.
Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule,
Teach him taxes
Are the rule.
Tax his work,
Tax his pay,
He works for peanuts
Anyway!
Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.
Tax his ties,
Tax his shirt,
Tax his work,
Tax his dirt.
Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.
Tax his cigars,
Tax his beers,
If he cries
Tax his tears.
Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass.
Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won’t be done
Till he has no dough.
When he screams and hollers;
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He’s good and sore.
Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he’s laid.
Put these words
Upon his tomb,
Taxes drove me
to my doom…’
When he’s gone,
Do not relax,
Its time to apply
The inheritance tax.

STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY? Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our nation was the most prosperous in the world.

We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What in the hell happened? Can you spell ‘politicians?’

And I still have to ‘press 1′ for English!?

I hope this goes around THE USA at least 100 times!!! YOU can help it get there!!!

GO AHEAD – – – BE AN AMERICAN!!!

Obama and the Anti-American Trifecta


President Obama just completed the UNHOLY and ANTI-AMERICAN TRIFECTA:* 1st president in 110 years to miss the annual Army-Navy Football Game.* 1st president not to attend any Christmas religious observance.

* 1st president to stay on vacation after a terrorist attack.

Add to that the first President not to stay in Washington for Christmas for the last 20 years. Past Presidents didn’t leave Washington for Christmas vacation until after Christmas. This was done so the staff (Secret Service, Air Force One Crew, Limousine transport, Presidential advancing logistics, etc.) could be with their families for Christmas.
