A VISITOR FROM THE PAST.

I had a dream the other night, I didn’t understand.
A figure walking through the mist, with flintlock in his hand.…
His clothes were torn and dirty, as he stood there by the bed,
He took off his three-cornered hat, and speaking low, he said:
“We fought a revolution, to secure our liberty.
We wrote the Constitution, as a shield from tyranny,
For future generations, this legacy we gave,
In this, the land of the free and the home of the brave.”
“The freedom we secured for you, we hoped you’d always keep.
But tyrants labored endlessly, while your parents were asleep.
Your freedom gone, your courage lost, you’re no morethan a slave,
In this, the land of the free and the home of the brave.”
“You buy permits to travel, and permits to own a gun,
Permits to start a business, or to build a place for one.
On land that you believe you own, you pay a yearly rent,
Although you have no voice in choosing how the money’s spent.”
“Your children must attend a school that doesn’t educate.
Your Christian values can’t be taught, according to the state.
You read about the current news, in a regulated press.
You pay a tax you do not owe, to please the I.R.S.”

“Your money is no longer made of silver or of gold.
You trade your wealth for paper, so your life can be controlled.
You pay for crimes that make our nation turn from God in shame,
You’ve taken Satan’s number, as you’ve traded in your name.”

“You’ve given government control to those who do you harm,
So they can padlock churches, and steal the family farm,
And keep the country deep in debt, put men of God in jail,
Harass your fellow countrymen, while corrupted courts prevail.”

“Your public servants don’t uphold the solemn oath they’ve sworn.
Your daughters visit doctors so their children won’t be born.
Your leaders ship artillery and guns to foreign shores,
And send your sons to slaughter, fighting other people’s wars.”

“Can you regain freedom for which we fought and died?
Or don’t you have the courage or the faith to stand with pride?
Are there no more values for which you’ll fight to save?
Or do you wish your children to live in fear and be a slave?”

“Sons of the Republic, arise and take a stand!
Defend the Constitution, the Supreme Law of the Land!
Preserve our great republic and each God-given right,
And pray to God to keep the torch of freedom burning bright!”

As I awoke he vanished, in the mist from which he came.
His words were true, we are not free. We have ourselves to blame.
For even now as tyrants trample each God-given right,
We only watch and tremble, too afraid to stand and fight.

If he stood by your bedside, in a dream while you’re asleep,
And wondered what remains of our rights he fought to keep,
What would be your answer, if he called out from the grave?
Is this still the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave?

This is the last known existing poem of Audie Murphy. It was written as part of a speech Murphy gave at the dedication of the Alabama War Memorial at Montgomery, Alabama on July 20, 1968. The poem was later recorded to music in an arrangement written by Scott Turner. It has also found its place on engraved memorials. Without question, it is probably the best known Audie Murphy poem.

PS: Audie Leon Murphy was one of the most famous and decorated American combat soldiers of World War II.
It's scary to realize in 1968 someone had the foresight to write this about "TODAY!"

Morning HH and Mister_E.

It's another cool day here in WV.
I watched the moonrise last night at 11:39. It was big and round but quickly went into clouds.

Mister_E - thanks for the prop in WFP.

Yes, I saw QC yesterday on a couple of threads. Is she okay? Or does anyone know?

It's 74 here this morning. Oklahoma, btw. Still dark yet but not for much longer.

I'm off to the exercise mill.

Ya'll have a good day!

A guy brings his best buddy home for dinner. His wife screams, "You asshole! My hair & makeup aren't done, the house is a mess, the dishes aren't done, I'm still in my pajamas and I can't be bothered with cooking tonight! > > Why the hell did you bring him home?" > > "Cause he's thinking of getting married."

What is on my mind that I can talk about
to put it in prose or be poetic and reroute
This sends it out differently to make my expression
I pray what is said will make an impression
1st to introduce to you where my thoughts are
You must get in sync with me, it may be bizarre
As foolish and fantastic as life seems to be
We take it too much for granted as I hope you'll see
Here is what life for everyone should contain
Life is just time so don't squander the same
What you do with it will determine your success
The better you spend it the less you'll regress
Now you have read what I had to say
Take care of your soul and cherish the day
The Lord brought you into this world
And one day He'll take you away
HH
Well said...)
Have a nice day...

To whom it may concern...;)

QC came in late this evening. Did another fly by but stopped long enough to answer my question on how she was doing.

Hiya Crazy..You feeling better? I read you were sick?
Evening M.E.
Doing better everyday as long as I don't push myself. But getting a handle on my go go go is sometimes troublesome. But this has been a learning experience to say the least. It's amazing skimming the line can peel back tons of layers of uselessness and though frightening it is strangely uplifting. That didn't make sense but I hope you understand me. LOL <wince>

Then in another response...

Mister_ E wrote:

Take care of yourself...;) I read you said meds saved your life. Must have been a doozy(sp)...
Glad you're better.
C'ya!
Great doctor, she was calm under fire.
Thanks for caring.
Hope you're doing well out there with all the tornedos. Stay safe friend and your loved ones. They look horribly frightening.

Buh bye

There you have it in a nutshell...:)

I apologized to you profusely on another thread, where, much to my extreme embarassment, I misunderstood you and disrespected you again, HH. I wanted to make sure you got my PUBLIC apology that I OWE YOU, so I copied and pasted it and am leaving it here as well. I am mortified beyond belief. Hope you can forgive me.

"OMG... I am so incredibly sorry. And ashamed of myself. I read too fast and read something in your post that wasn't there. I am very, very, very, very, sory for my uncalled for and unkind remarks, sir. I hope you can find it in your heart to to forgive me. Once again.=( It's no excuse, but I was half asleep still and I need glasses.

I really am sorry. Incredibly sorry."

Kudos. I would prop you for this if had one left.

Although, I am neither Democrat or Republican.
Am sure not evangelical. Well, not in a religious fashion.

The generation you speak, has come, is here, is done.

I agree with all I am on A-C. Just do it, keep silent about it, and live with it. Embrace it and make it privately their own. What a body does, is their business.

I dread it gets made mine all the d'amn time. I could care a less what half the peeps are doing, at any given time. But is spoon d'amn fed to all of us none d'amn stop on the news. Here, there, everywhere.

Looks to me, humans *survive with what they have to work with.
If it be a dollar or a billion and one of them.

*to a point
