One Day

In 1987, I remember hearing about a desperate fight for an old woman who was going to lose her home. Her landlord’s (Donald Trump) ruthlessness was being reported on the airwaves at the time.

Watching Hilary and her buddy Trump in their presidential debate performance the other night, I recalled that incident.

That’s before the sound of “Pff!” left my lips, while he was laying it on thick about caring about the plight in African American  communities.
One can appreciate the extra efforts to assure us that we’re ‘still’ an important factor.

It’s just time that they laid down the ‘scripts’. It’s gotten beyond insulting-with “illegal scandals” going unanswered for and the soap opera theatrics included.

The moment we got this Affordable Care Act

 under our Christmas tree- with barely any one  decent enough to pretend about being bothered to read it..
And when this National Defense Authorization Act ( Indefinite Detention)

came flying through the air to backhand us in the face..
That’s when it was confirmed to me- We don’t matter in the decision process of lawgiving. Not a bit.
While we’re busy tearing each other apart over the worn out race, sex and class fires they are stoking, the sneaks march on- securing padlocks on our health choices, education, housing and damned near all else.
It’s okay.
One day, without violent intention or pathetically hopeless force, we’ll cease supplying the light by which these weeds grow- our collective blind faith and gullibility.
We’ll finally teach our children that they are more sophisticated than what the media machine is “reporting” they “are”.
Despite my disdain for The Established Church, I hold faith that timeless wisdom will be embraced with solid understanding. We will be honoring words -having more to do with “God” living within each one of us and nothing to do with being at the mercy of crude and unimpressive bullies…
Psalm 40:4
How blessed is the man who has made the LORD his trust, And has not turned to the proud, nor to those who lapse into falsehood.
“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.”
When we narrow our eyes in mature suspicion..not leave them wide open in simple wonder over how “important” our rulers must be.
When we cease acting like the animals they are ready to “deal with” at a moment’s notice.
When we politely, firmly push back the free heaping helpings of worthless muck they offer in the name of “pleasure and protection.”
When our shoulders are squared up in confidence, not hunched over with constant self doubt and fear.
That’s the One Day I am confident will come. When our classless and greedy carnival performers are rendered impotent.
