Separation of State and Religion

Beck and Palin don't get it, do they?

So their "non-political" event was really a pseudo-religious ceremony thanking the troops for their hard work overseas... and a push to get "God back into Government".

HUH?

Re-read your history books, please.

Our founders were wise enough to recognize this: If you give a MAN power over your DAY and your SOUL, then that trust WILL Be corrupted and you WILL be a fool...

If the Tea Party isn't about "Taxed Enough Already", it's image is now morphing into being extremely into bring religion into government... because they claim that the US Government was founded as a Christian government.

NO. IT. WAS. NOT.

The US was founded under the belief of religious FREEDOM. The Freedom to Worship as your soul moves you to do. Whether this freedom involves Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, or any host of religions (we're looking at the Scientology whackballs over there in the corner...)... they all have the freedom to worship and care for their SOULS in this country... and that right is protected by GOVERNMENT, which is intended to protect EVERY SINGLE DAY WE LIVE. They recognized that absolute power corrupts a man absolutely... because he's just a man.

What happens when you give one PERSON one PARTY or one GROUP the power to control your DAY and your SOUL?

Go look at the Taliban. Saudi Arabia. Iran. Hezbollah. These are all governments (or pseudo-governments or organizations) which invoke the power of DEITIES into every day government. Their people are oppressed. Their women are glorified pets, and their governments deny education because some of them ARE smart enough to recognize that dumb people are easily controllable. This is what happens when you combine GOD and GOVERNMENT. They're too concepts which should never be mixed.

Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin are too stupid to recognize this.

Now, a disclaimer, so the stupid people don't try to kill me or something:
I believe whole heartedly in your right to believe in God. I believe it's a beautiful thing to worship the Lord, in whatever form you feel you must.

But I don't think the Lord cares at all about jaywalking, illegal recording, or even pornography. He has more important things to do...

Poem – I Know Why

My absent minded fact finded barely hiding
mind of mine oh sure it's fine but maybe
I should hide what thoughts dance inside
cause the volume and meanings
the quantity and quality may be
far too frightful for sharing

Mass consumption of all the marbles
rattling around in this pumpkin
would really be something but
I fear the lumping would result in
klumping of brains that sound
like an empty thumping

I'm not all that wise nor all that good looking
but I'm smarter than your average guy
walking along staring at the sky
not knowing why it's blue
or why the clouds keep passing by
but if you ask me, yes, indeed

I know why
I know how
I know where
but I don't know who

My absent minded step off kindly
mind of mine oh sure it's wide
cast a line and hook the swine
a fools errand to even try
explain the neurotic connections
with even an ounce of accuracy

Mass consumption would really be something
but these marbles would break your teeth
I fear the bleeding and consecutive screeching
would break the minds of all who whined
why oh why oh why oh why did I
even try to even try to wrap my mind

I'm not all that wise not all that hot
but I'm much smarter than the average guy
walking along staring at the sky
not knowing why the stars shine
or why the sparkle with this rhyme
but if you ask me, yes indeed

I know why
I know how
I know where
but I don't know who

Poem – Died a Long Time Ago – Wise Men

I should have died a long time ago
cause I never knew where to go
my wanderings were without aim
targetless flight unto the waves
did I cast my stern to sway

As my eyes scan the horizon
I spot the shiny wise men
when finally I find them
they're barely aware of why then
except the wine must flow

I begged them to remember something
but all they recall is broken trumpets
sounding a fractured call to all
it's time to go there but where
the wise men do not know

even in their splattered haze they know

I should died a long time ago
cause I was a fool for trying to go
where I was never ready to be
all my targets were flawed reasons
did cast my boat to sink

Gurgling barely breathing
the waves sparkling under the sun
I think I'm ending fish food pending
yet I'm spinning out of control
where am I to flow?

I begged the tide to take me back
but all the gave was coral and sand
soundless screams of death rattling
as I settle into my final scene
the wise men smiling

even in the darkness beneath

I should have died a long time ago
cause I can't breathe the saline
I can't move or escape the nibbling
bobbing up and down if I'm lucky
my bones do sway

I watched the light down coming
without sense of time forever mine
the claw does reach out to me
finally it seems they do see
whatever is left of me

I begged the being please take me back
where the sun does shine
and all the air to breathe
but my voice is gone for mortal beings
the wise men do bequeath

even in the stillness of the bleak

I should have died a long time ago
my sunken ship and rotting bow
amidships and on ahead avast
broken down to float at last
rising does this sway

The light is burning me
but the smiles they gleam so sweet
cheer in their faces turn to screams
the dead ride with me
unmoving

The air and the sweet fresh wind
my mind it spins without an end
once again once again
I'll sail the seas until they speak
these wise men finally see

even in the sunshine so sweet
