The handsome couple pictured below is my nurse/historian partner of nigh on to 30 years, (the small one). The pretty one, (me) sits on the right. The little bird cage behind us inspired and warmed our hearts to the beauty of Athens, (Greece’s), gifts to humanity. The days of Kings and Nabobs of every description disposing the fate of those in their charge were numbered by Athenian Democracy. The inherent value of the individual was first recognized and promoted through Athenian Democracy. In essence, one man, one vote gave each citizen some influence in guiding their own destiny,….. for the first time in history.
Our connection to those who left the Parthenon to posterity was gilded by gratitude. We both realized they were family, caught in the same struggles for life and happiness, dignity and meaning in life. Through the travail of the ages, the blooming of human creation and miserable waste of war, the western world cobbled together something wonderful ’bout 35 centuries hence……..it was a miracle that sprung from a world of Kings and Queens either warring or screwing each other for power and national aggrandizement…..the miracle is AMERICA.
ROBERT SARAH, A VATICAN CARDINAL MAKING THE ASSERTION THAT THE PRESENT MASS MIGRTIONS MAY DESTROY THE IDENTITY OF EUROPE
Europe, to this day, has done much to nail her stupidity and taste for gore on the halls of history. And in turn, each sovereignty of Europe has a rich and unique character, born of time and lives lived within each nations borders. The linked article is Father Sarah’s call to the nations to follow President Trumps lead as he jealously serves his country above all others.
Niddle America is on the move again with apppx. 2500 migrants marching toward the American border. POTUS is responding with condemnations toward countries of origin and mexico who is nt helping stem the tide. The evil that has these people on the road and their Coyotes with money in their pockets. issues from the American Congress where the most childish display of random obstruction in American history. Democrats who before supported barriers, refused fund further barriers at the border. The message of Americas apparent torpor at the border has started a land rush that rivals the Oklahoma land rush.
Trumps emergency is turning into the Democrats 800 Lb. gorilla in the middle of the room. Of course they wantthe gorilla to stay it is going t be their new base. They have endless goodies to give and programs to offer.
The little article linked in the photo below is a little breath of fresh air. In a political ambiance marked by demands rather than requests and condemnation rather than compromise, the Sikhs have adjusted to the conditions of their adoptive home.
“Be careful what you pray for.” Merkals “open border” policy has bit her on the ass.Just a little blurb about Merkals call to the EU to help “strengthen up borders to curtail illegal immigration
It appears that Europe has wakened to it’s false hopes of a fairytale end to it’s embrace of migrants from the middle east war zone entering the more affluent European countries. A force of ten thousand is suggested as a stop-gap border patrol.
Hungary, insists it will not be a country of migrants in no uncertain terms. It is also assuming a stance of independence from the influence of the EU. Sanctions are being considered by the EU to coerce Hungary into knuckeling under to their migrant policies.
Trump is threatening to shut down the government if he doesn’t get some movement from congress on funding the wall to be built on our southern border. This measure is meant to slow the incursion of illegal entries into the U.S. from the south. The Dems see an endless constituency in the masses of needy and criminal migrants and are presently barking to open the border permanently. Borders and walls…… such unfriendly things. They don’t fit into the CandyLand world that lies just around the corner.
Stand at the edge of the water and look east. Notice the dirty orange glow above the horizon. It is Great Britain burning. And watch as a flaming snake slithers across the water like Greek fire, incendiary and unstoppable. We can either take action in our own salvation, or cower in a corner and wait for a miracle. If we fight we may win and we may lose. If we wait, we wait for the inevitable.
Briton has been the custodian of all things western for about 1500 years. To see her display masochistic, self – scourging is always disturbing. It’s like seeing a loved one slapping themselves around after each error, regardless of how small or insignificant. Here is a little rage about the effects of having the Muslim influence grow in great Briton.
“Pride comes before the fall” OOOOOOoooo aren’t we the Great White North. Oh so generous and perpetually level headed. With each pat on their own back they are driving little hubris nails in their coffin.
I remember a time , when I was young and callow, that the plight of men and women of other nations was their business. Such suppression of large swaths of there own population was the business of those who dressed like “Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves.” At least it wasn’t in my back yard! And I really didn’t care.
