Die for Truth

Over the centuries there have been people willing to courageously speak the truth. Even when the path of least resistance would have secured their own prosperity. The path of least resistance, silence, when one looks at the history of man is the road that allows evil to have its way.

Slavery of the masses has always been achieved by the powerful minority through the ascent to evil by silence and inaction. The threat of punishment or being cast out has been enough to keep people under control. Political correctness is that same ploy used throughout human history. Sadly many would rather bite their tongues when they see evil rather than risk retribution.

Then of course there are those that will risk all to make change that is just and proper. To the men and women who throughout history have stood tall in the face of injustice and tyranny I have the greatest admiration. I pray that if such a challenge were placed before me that I have the courage to do the same. I feel it is better to die with love of truth by our words and deed than to live with complacency towards evil and cowardice in the soul.

Live and Let Die

I recently have been to a few steak restaurants. Interestingly enough you may know that I have not eaten beef in over a month. Still, these visits have raised a new observation. Many of the restaurants are now owned under group names and chains that are beholden to their investors in many cases equity firms. This means they need to show returns.

To show returns I see that prices have been raised across the board. Portion sizes are also ridiculously large, in my estimation to entice the greedy ego to spend more than necessary. This becomes a profitable business but it may be a good business at the moment but I really do not believe we will see continued growth in that sector. The reason is because I see that on the flip-side the major corporations who are beholden to their investors whether public or private are squeezing their employees pay to improve their returns in price earnings.

This means that the investment community is squeezing from both ends of the spectrum. This is why as many in our society have observed the rich become richer and the middle working class is slowly disappearing and becoming part of the struggling working class. When the people don’t earn enough to go to fancy steak restaurants of this ilk, they will disappear. You have to live and let live, earn but still pay just wages. But it is becoming more apparent that some in our society believe in live and let die.

NO- A Good Word

NO is not a bad word. It is an affirmative and confirmation of a direction. I like the word very much, the words I don’t like are “maybe”, “I’ll get back to you” or “I’m not sure”. Yes is equally a good word and for the same reason. Any other response that is not yes or no is often a delay tactic. Of course there are times that we may not have an answer and it is legitimate to say you will respond later  but the goal should always be to come back to someone with an affirmation either in the positive or negative. Any other type of answer leaves the other person in limbo and is quite rude if we perpetually keep them in the lurch because we lack the resolution to say “NO” or “YES”. In other words, don’t waste your time or anyone else’s by putting off something that could be answered right away. This is why I say I like to hear NO even if I don’t want it, it gives closure and enables me to move on.

Constant Longing

TwilightEarly morning sun
A welcome guest
Too short when it comes
A light-fest

Rising become easy
Like a lover’s kiss
She wakes me
I rise for this

The joy it brings
It warms the heart
Smiles abound
Great way to start

Days filled with laughter
And wonderment
Life enriching
Life’s compliment

Slowly
She begins to fade
Less time for me
I grow afraid

Darkness comes
No rising light
Taking over
The coming plight

Dreams of her
Will keep me going
Her every word
Bright and showing

Be the light
For others to see
Chase the black
Out to sea

Peace and love
Triumph always
Battle charge
Opens pathways

A swift return
This I pray for
A hope that’s full
A dream I care for

Rising sun
Come back to me
I miss you so
Don’t let me bleed

Your light fills
Every essence
Without you
Life lacks presence

Opening eyes
I see your rising
All is right
Blinding and uncompromising

Eternally Onward

Eternally Onwards

The age of reason
Has come and gone
Deceit and pleasure
Are number one

Young I thought
Life is long
Now times goes by
A passing gong

The thrill of life
Is in the learning
Living on the edge
Lacks all discerning

Wisdom comes
Too late for most
The body is weak
Our soul’s host

Truth and beauty
Sounds like a chime
Yet evils lurks
Throwing on it
Lies of slime

To seek true joy
In life, ain’t easy
The right path
Not for weak kneed

Many go wrong
With thoughts
Of second chances
There is no going back
No happenstances

Cherish the beauty
Open your heart
To love
Then it will lift
Heart and mind
Way up above

In an instant
This plane is gone
Only good spirits
Spring eternally on

Are We Nazis?

ImageOur country is scarring the hell out of me. When in an article about baby murderer Kermit Gosnell the statement “he is only charged with killing 7 live babies” goes unchallenged by the reporter’s editors it tells the story of evil winning over good. To be fair it is meant to say that only seven out of hundreds.Still the wording of using “only” tells another story.

In a way it is a good thing that the truth about the way abortionists think is coming out unfortunately the major media is doing everything in its power to protect the persons and the industry. Recently a worker at Planned Parenthood openly admitted believing that if a baby is born alive from a botched procedure it is still the mother’s decision whether the child survives. Apparently it is not about the Woman’s body but about her desire to have or not have a child, As if a child is a commodity and not a blessing.

 

The success of the abortionists has been to convince the general public that pregnancy is like a disease. It has also convinced the general public that a baby in the womb is not a baby. However the people are not so dense as to believe that a baby once born is still not a baby. The abortionists’ position that the mother has the right to kill a born living baby is actually the logical conclusion of believing that abortion should be permitted. To those that support abortion and do not condone the killing of a born living baby by decision of their mother, I say you are not consistent. It was a baby before it was born….wake up! You can’t have it both ways.

The way of thinking of our ever increasing extremely self-centered socialist society will lead to the NAZI (National Socialist Workers Party) dream accomplished without war. By the slow Imageacceptance of immoral behavior and the acceptance of the misuse of our human bodies for the use for ends for which they were never intended we are corrupting our society. It will only be a matter of time if we remain on this course when an elderly person will be executed because they can no longer take care of themselves, babies will be killed if they are born ill without consent of the parent and if for any reason a person becomes unable to be productive they will be eliminated. The fireman who goes into a coma for a long period of time after saving others’ lives will no longer be protected from the selfishness of our society. This was one of the goals of the Nazis and this is the trend in the United Socialist States of America.

Is it a wonder that there are so many murderers in this country?  We constantly read of people for no logical reason killing innocent people both adults and children. Yesterday people were attacked by knife on a college campus. For me it is not a surprise when we are raising our people to have no respect for human life.

Kermit Gosnell killed hundreds of living babies and the major media does not care. They support Infanticide. At least somehow their true colors are coming out. I fear that until they start killing people who can defend themselves even slightly the people will not rise up. I hope that I am wrong.Miguel Perez-Santalla
