There are fundamental flaws in how American government operates today,
contrary to the Constitution and the vision of a representative republican form of governance.
I intend doing something about it: by educating and informing others who
are not even aware of the dangers.

What Tomorrow Will Bring: A Tirade: Afterthoughts and Words Part 4

It should be obvious, from information contained in past articles, that I am no longer young...and yet broken and disheartened, I shall do everything in my domain to warn my fellow man, my countrymen, of what I perceive to be a clear and present danger, and if that eventuality should come to be, I shall give my all to defend and protect my countrymen, their posterity, and all that they hold honorable and true, regardless of any cost perceived or not. If for whatever reason, I am not afforded that obligation it will not have been my decision. Of the hundreds, I knew personally, that enjoined that 'path of peace' none remain. I truly feel alone, yet hopeful.
Me, MKUltra? What do I Think: Probably just rumors, like the 70,000 square foot house with three foot thick steel reinforced concrete walls and sub-levels and miles of tunnels below, mere gossip, like the 'Government' does not have the welfare of the People in mind (that can't be close to true, more people receive welfare than at any time in history, anywhere): What am I going to do?: prepare as best I can and pick a bunch of dandelion leaves, boil some water, and have a mess of greens and the other Half of my Holy Cow Hamburger (best on the Planet) I got at the Village Pub for dinner, then I don't know about you, but I'm going to listen to 'Up from the Skies' the Hendrix Experience and 'You Can't Win' Iron Butterfly Heavy and 'Power Failure' Procal Harum and 'Plush' STP Core and 'Badge' Cream Goodbye and 'Ride Captain Ride' Blues Image and 'Shine On' Humble Pie and 'In the Year 2525' Zager & Evans and 'Theme for an Imaginary Western, Mountain and 'Shapes of Things' the Yardbirds and 'We Can't Make It Here Anymore' James Mcmurtry and Southern Cross CS&N and 'POLICY of TRUTH' Dishwalla and 'Above the wreckage' Dishwalla

Think long and hard, and make lengthy intricate plans, and someday maybe I can go to Disney Land.

Words from the Editor:
Excerpted for Educational Purposes

"We must give a special thanks to all the men and women who have spent years of their lives bringing this information to the public; and we must not forget those who are not always in the foreground but without whose undying support and endurance this effort would not be possible. These men and women are true Patriots; they not only need your support but deserve it. Let us remember that the word Patriot as defined by Webster's Dictionary as "fellow countryman; a person who loves and loyally or zealously supports his own country."
Not everyone can afford to give the long hours of those on the front lines; many others fear their government. But there have been many who have mutually pledged to each other their Lives, their Fortunes and their Sacred Honor, who have given their ALL! Study the Declaration of Independence!! It is an outrage that the actions of our own government leaders cause many to not trust them!

"By Their Fruits Shall They Be Known."
What have We the People allowed to happen? Who is running America? Are We, the People, going to continue to be slaves? How much is Our freedom worth? Where are WE going to Draw the Bottom Line? It is Our Choice!"
"To be able to call oneself "American" has long been a source of pride for those fortunate enough to live in this great land. The word "America" has always been synonymous with strength in the defense of our highest ideals of liberty, justice and opportunity, not only for ourselves, but also for those throughout the world less fortunate than we.
America's greatest strength has always been her people, individuals laying their differences aside to work in partnership to achieve common goals. In our greatest moments, it has been our willingness to join together and work as long and as hard as it takes to get the job done, regardless of the cost. That has been the lifeblood of our great land.
From America's inception, we have been a nation of innovators unfettered by hidebound convention, a safe harbor for captains unafraid to boldly chart a new course through untried waters. This courage to dare greatly to achieve great things has made our nation strong and proud, a leader of men and of nations from the very first days of her birth.
And since the days of her birth, millions of men and women whose hearts yearn for freedom and the opportunity to make a better life for themselves and their families have journeyed, often enduring terrible hardship, to our shores to add their skills and their dreams to the great storehouse of hope known as America.
The Pilgrims, the Founding Fathers, the Pioneers - the brave men and women who have fought and endured to the end in wars both civil and international - this history of heroism and dedication in defense of ideals both personal and national has long been a treasured legacy of bravery and determination against all odds which we have handed down like family heirlooms from generation to generation.
For we are like family, we Americans, often quarreling among ourselves but banding together in times of adversity to support one another and fight side by side against a common foe threatening our way of life. This bold and brash, brave young land has long given its best and brightest to lead our country to its lofty position in the world as a bastion of freedom and a beacon of hope for all the peoples of the Earth.
For many, the dreams they had for America were dreams they never lived to see fulfilled, but it mattered not to them, for their vision for this nation was meant to last longer and to loom larger than a mere mortal life span. Our national vision of integrity and responsibility, of concern for one's fellow man, the flame inside that demands of us that we shall not rest until there is peace and justice for all - these are the fundamental stones which form the strong foundation of our national purpose and identity.
And on this foundation rests, not only the hopes of those blessed to live in this great land, but the hopes of millions throughout the world who believe in, and strive for, a better life for themselves and their children. For hundreds of years, the knowledge that America was there - proud, generous, steadfast, courageous - willing and able to enter the fray wherever human rights were threatened or denied, has given many who may never see her shores the will to endure despite the pain, to continue trying against sometimes insurmountable odds.
Yet without vigilance and constant tender care, even the strongest foundation shows the effects of stress and erosion. Even the most imposing edifice can eventually crumble and fall. So it is with nations, and with a nation's spirit.
We have seen in this second half of the twentieth century great advances in technology which have impacted every aspect of modern life. Ironically, though we are living in the "age of communication", it often seems as if we have less time now to talk or listen. For most, modern conveniences haven't gotten them off the treadmill; they have only made the treadmill go faster.
Quietly, yet rapidly, the small town values of community and common purpose are vanishing. Instead of strength in numbers, we as a nation are increasingly being split into smaller and smaller competing factions, with the cry of "every man for himself" ringing through the land. It seems that the phrase, "divide and conquer" has taken the place of, "One nation under God indivisible, with truth and justice for all." Americans are retreating behind the locked doors of their individual homes, afraid to enjoy the sunset for fear of the darkness it brings.
When and where did it all begin to crumble? How and why has America, which once was a nation whose strength united was so much more than the sum of its total parts, begin to break apart into bitterly opposing special interest groups? What will this frightening pattern of disintegration mean to the future of America and of those who live within her shores? Let it be remembered, and remembered well, the words of the Holy Bible:

"a house divided against itself cannot stand."

And let us not flinch from facing the truth that we have become a nation desperately divided.
With the long legacy of pride, determination, and strength in unity, how has it now come to this, that we are fighting ourselves? Finally, and most vitally important of all, what can we do to turn the tide before the values and opportunities which others before us fought and died to preserve are washed away in the flood to come?
What you are about to see is the result of years of painstaking and meticulous research on the part of dedicated Americans gravely concerned for this nation's future. Please listen closely and give your undivided attention to this presentation, for our future as individuals and free citizens of this mighty land depends upon it."

Poetic Reference:

The Charge of the Light Brigade
BY Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Half a league, half a league,
Half a league onward,
All in the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.
Forward, the Light Brigade!
Charge for the guns!” he said.
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.

Forward, the Light Brigade!”
Was there a man dismayed?
Not though the soldier knew
Someone had blundered.
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die.
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.

Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Cannon in front of them
Volleyed and thundered;
Stormed at with shot and shell,
Boldly they rode and well,
Into the jaws of Death,
Into the mouth of hell
Rode the six hundred.

Flashed all their sabres bare,
Flashed as they turned in air
Sabring the gunners there,
Charging an army, while
All the world wondered.
Plunged in the battery-smoke
Right through the line they broke;
Cossack and Russian
Reeled from the sabre stroke
Shattered and sundered.
Then they rode back, but not
Not the six hundred.

Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Cannon behind them
Volleyed and thundered;
Stormed at with shot and shell,
While horse and hero fell.
They that had fought so well
Came through the jaws of Death,
Back from the mouth of hell,
All that was left of them,
Left of six hundred.

When can their glory fade?
O the wild charge they made!
All the world wondered.
Honour the charge they made!
Honour the Light Brigade,
Noble six hundred!

Another one bites the dust, 30.
