Hello!

So, I found this website that I have to share with all you “knowledge/trivia junkies”.  It is http://www.mentalfloss.com.

Go check it out, there’s lots to look at, and if you are like me, I’m particularly drawn to the “Quizes” section. I don’t know what my problem is, why I feel I need to take random quizzes (guess I’m missing the stress of test-taking in college?) Anyway, I know I need to keep my mind sharp, (ie….see how smart I am….or not…..we all think we are smarter than we really are, right?).

I was pleasantly surprised at getting all of them right, with 25 seconds to spare. I guess that geography class in college paid off for me on this….ha!

It won’t show your answers, only cheers you along, fun.

Now, maybe I should try to get on “Jeopardy”……..naw.

You can see my quiz below:

Can you name the answers to the geography questions in the time limit of 3 minutes?

It is very disturbing to me that the President of the United States is once again threatening to overreach his powers via Executive Order in regards to guns and gun laws.
It is important to remember that a Tyrant will take away your guns so that they will have control over you and the Country. This is the path he is moving towards, to give power to both himself and the Federal Government.

Here is what the second Amendment says:
U.S. Constitution — “Amendment II –A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

[Cornell University Law School, http://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/constitution.billofrights.html#amendmentii ]

Very simply, and very effectively, our Founding Fathers protected the ability of each individual citizen, and the state of which he is a part, to “keep and bear arms” for defense. In reading this amendment, you must focus on the first tiny comma, for that punctuation mark divides this guarantee into two separate, but equal, parts.
First, each “free state” of the Union was granted the ability to create and maintain a “well regulated militia”; note that his guarantee says, “well regulated”, not Federal Government regulated!
After the comma, a second guarantee was granted, i.e., the “right of the people” to ” keep and bear arms”. The term, “people” simply means the individual citizen of the United States of America.

Therefore, each individual citizen has a Constitutionally-guaranteed right to keep and bear arms!

Then, the second comma contains the guarantee: “shall not be infringed”. In other words, both the right of the state to maintain a militia AND the right of the individual citizen to keep and bear arms “shall not be infringed”. This definition is the simple, straightforward meaning of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

History repeats itself, from October 2, 1865, The Gonzales Flag, Texas

Texas Representative Steve Stockman is threatening to push the impeachment of Obama in regards to gun control. He clearly explains how Obama’s actions will violate our 2nd amendment right:

“The President’s actions are an existential threat to this nation. The right of the people to keep and bear arms is what has kept this nation free and secure for over 200 years. The very purpose of the Second Amendment is to stop the government from disallowing people the means to defend themselves against tyranny. Any proposal to abuse executive power and infringe upon gun rights must be repelled with the stiffest legislative force possible.

The President’s actions are not just an attack on the Constitution and a violation of his sworn oath of office – they are a direct attack on Americans that place all of us in danger. If the President is allowed to suspend constitutional rights on his own personal whims, our free republic has effectively ceased to exist.” ~ Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas
It is important to pay attention to what is happening in Washington, as your rights are about to be taken away right under your nose. If that happens, I see a revolution in the near future.
I leave you this quote by Edmund Burke to think about, especially since Obama seems to have the masses under his “charismatic spell”.

“The people never give up their liberties, but under some delusion.” ~Edmund Burke

sensitive-poet

Before he became famous for being the creator of “The Simpsons”, Matt Groening wrote “Life in Hell”, which was a weekly comic that was published from 1977 to 2012. The strip featured anthropomorphic rabbits and a gay couple. Groening used these characters to explore a wide range of topics about love, sex, work, and death. The comics also expressed angst, alienation, self-loathing, and fear of inevitable doom (oh, how appropriate to post this today, when the world is going to end).

Wanting to improve on my poetic skills, I found this hilarious “guide” he wrote about how to be a sensitive poet.

My favorite things in this guide are the suggested subjects to write about, specifically “tree stumps”, and the writing prompts, especially the one, “On the lonely cliff I loiter”. I giggle everytime I see that.

A truly amazing thing is I found a poem that is really good, and it has tree stumps in it. You can check it out here: http://thebatamonblog.wordpress.com/ How funny is that?

I can tell, I’m going to write some awesome poems by utilizing these nifty tips. Let me know if they help you with your poetry writing.

A Mayan Doomsday Poem

Hold my heart with care
It is fragile

Hold it close to your heart
Let them beat en masse

An affirmation of life
How long will they beat?

It is despairing to me
As I realize it won’t last

Let us enjoy this time
This moment together

Nothing else matters

The world may end today
Or tomorrow…who knows?

No one knows
Only God knows

He keeps his secrets well

Thought For The Day

One of my guy friends made my day. I found this message on my facebook,

“You’re very Pretty, smart and fun so don’t settle for less than the best!!!!”

Don’t be afraid to compliment someone, as they just might need it, especially now that the holidays are just around the corner.
