Is This Life

Posted by MFishProfile 01/02/21 at 06:08AM Government See more by MFish

Is this life now over?
Has it fallen apart?
Will the virus which romps,
Bringing many a sad heart?
So many lives gone,
Too many to see,
As the Commander in Chief,
Is nowhere to be,
Taking control of a plant,
Instead of sulking,
With his Ego apart.
Too bad he doesn't have
An empathetic heart.

I Understand

I understand the expediency of
the action taken, I do. But using
a broad brush to apply regulations
to a large business and small
will ruin the small merchants
and contribute to them failing.
A large business has deep pockets,
obtaining loans from the banks.
A small business does not.
Our retail solution, our tax base,
could be the saving grace,
for the economy.
We see it daily. We see it now.
Where is the relief? When you
kill the chicken, don't expect
it to lay eggs.
The rules of the past, are not working
anymore. We must provide assistance.
Do it now. You haven't.
The small business is hurting and the
school system too. What are you
thinking? Bring business's together,
to develop rules, which will work.
Not the flawed logic, you're using today.

WHY

Posted by MFishProfile 12/27/20 at 06:59AM Government See more by MFish

Why are the children in this land
in pain and hunger? I don't understand,
why the politicians, look away
and forgo a relief bill on this day.
The loss of jobs, the loss of life,
has come to this prosperous land.
Is this "Making America Great Again?"
Where is our leader? It's his command,
yet he disappears. A cowardly chump.
Come on Donald or Don John Trump.
Your are weak, of this we see.
A failure now in our history.

Write Not

Write not the words,
your thoughts or your deeds,
for no one in Government
seems to care about your needs.
A Co-vid relief check
in March it was sent.
I didn't choose to leave work.
You shut down our employers.
The responsibility you shirk,
while you argue in Congress therein
when both parties behave like a jerk.
What you do to the citizens is a sin.
Now, get back to work during
the governments failure, in the din
and help all the citizens recover,
a way which was lost,
Provide the needed relief,
no matter the cost.

Spin the wheel.
Spin it well,
we're caught in the cycle
of an economic Hell.
We've found the right method
to destroy the tax base,
just keep your distance,
and mask up your face.
You need to provide relief.
You must do it now,
for many a small business
will take their last breath.
An economic change,
the slow spiral of economic death.

There once was a life.
It was here before,
outside the window,
outside the door.
It is happening now,
it is happening again
because of the stupidity
and the ignorance of a man.
How many lives do we,
know, we'll soon lose?
The idiocy of the question
is, what do we choose?
"It's all rumor, a Democratic hoax."
After all the deaths we've had,
Is it now a big joke?
You're quite ignorant Mister Trump.
It is what you are.
You should be in jail,
after Due Process of course,
for the criminal you are.

Henry A. Wallace (1888 – 1965) - American politician, journalist, and farmer who served as U.S Secretary of Agriculture , U.S Secretary of Commerce and  33rd  Vice President Of the United States from 1941 to 1945 under President  Franklin D. Roosevelt. He was a strong supporter of Roosevelt's New Deal.

"Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting-place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate — we cannot consecrate — we cannot hallow — this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation shall have a new birth of freedom and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth".


This "Nicolay" draft of the Gettysburg Address is one of five slightly different drafts of the speech known to exist. It is named for John G. Nicolay, President Lincoln's personal secretary. Most historians consider this version the "reading copy" at Gettysburg. Learn more at Abraham Lincoln online
