Pieces of my mind...

Where have all the flowers gone?
Long time passing.
Where have all the flowers gone?
Long time ago.
Gone to graveyards everywhere;
when will it ever end, when will it ever end?

Clowns to the left of me;
Jokers to the right
Here I am stuck in the middle

Last week, one of the middle skool students on my buss, rhetorically asked "What is Communism?"

I don't know how much liberty I have as a buss driver, but as I thot about his question, I devised the idea of how to explain Communism to someone.

I begin by inviting the student to sweep out the buss every day for one week, for which I will pay him $200.

On Friday, after he finishes the sweeping duty, he asks for his payment.

I pull out $200 in five dollar bills, and proceed to give the other thirty-nine students on the buss a five dollar bill, ending up with giving him five dollars.

When he complains that he has done all the work; I explain to him that the other students need the money also, and it is only fair that they have what he has.

I explain that this is a good picture of socialism {From him according to his ability, to him according to his need}, and then state that when he complains about how unfair it is, Communism would either kill him or have him locked up in prison as a political prisoner.

Then to cement the idea, I would further explain, that once he is identified as a political prisoner, and he has a family, his wife would not be able to get employment, and his children would forfeit any and all state support. No skool, no medicine, no welfare.

Gee, how sweet it is...our gummint skools are teaching our chillun that it is better for the gummint to make decisions for us, rather than for us to be intellejunt and make our own decisions.

Save the whales and otters and dolphins, but kill the unborn babies.

Arrest Christians and turn murderers and rapists loose on society.

Ummmm, those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it?

There is only one truth, and it cannot be denied. Man is not capable of creating a world like ours, and inversely is not capable of totally destroying sed world.

The Creator, has promised a day of judgment, that day will come whether we are ready or not. And we will not be judged by how we lived; but by what is in our heart, and the intents of our thoughts.

May God have mercy on us.
