BEWARE THE IDES OF "MARCH! TO THE GOOSESTEP!"

© 2007 Mark Robert Gates

If Hillary Rodham Clinton is elected president, then all children in America, will have one of Oprah's schools, and uniforms are something all rational people will agree with, just to avoid endless debate. Then we can get down to the real issues involving American public education.

The only question I have is, did high school girls get asked not to wear bare midrifs to school, in order to respect that if they did, a man would have a right to rape them?

Are we still forcing women to accept, and respect, a man's right to rape them, in the 21st century?

This is why we need a woman president, so we can end this practice, on this globe.

GONZALES: MOST IMMORTAL IDIOT

© 2007 Mark Robert Gates

The most immortal act of idiocy, ever in this universe, will be hiring the dark haired girl in, Sex and the City, to play a girl who cannot find a man. If that show can be seen, a million years from now, viewers will still scratch their heads and wonder why anyone would cast such a beauty, as the dark haired one in that quartet, as unwanted by men. I mean Carrie's role is always the same, "Carrie is crying." That must be all the script says. Samantha's role is always, "Chases after a man, well past the point of reason, then ends up in a relationship she does not want, and then stays in the relationship and just pulls her hair out. The redhead's relationship's are so, "Futile," they're the only ones that actually ever come out being funny. However, the little dark hair girl, who like Elaine on Seinfeld, lacks the ability to successfuly repell a Jew, is suppossed to be, believed to be, rejected, by those of the Jewish faith, all of them. What? Madonna, they reject, not this babe.

So, since the most immortal act of idiocy award is already given, to the makers and producers of, Sex and the City, then the award for Attorney General Gonzales: Most Immortal Idiot. For Jews, this replaces Elijah, for pretending he can sit on a mountaintop for six months and pray down rain, showing he can call down fire out of heaven, slaying all the prophets of Baal by sword, and then taking off running after a little thing like Jezebel, puts out word she wants him dead. I mean, if you can call down fire out of heaven, wouldn't you just stretch out your hand in Jezebel's direction and go...."Poof." After all, Jezebel was a foriegner, who, under then Hebrew law, not only shouldn't have been married to Ahab, she should never have been allowed to even consider herself queen of Israel. So, when she decides to kill the prophet of the Lord, well you have all you need, which is why God's told Elijah, to feed the dogs, and report for a flaming chariot ride.

Now, however, Satan may claim this, Most Immortal Idiot, allowed him to place an Attorney General in office who did nothing at all, all the years he was in office. This is even better than Elijah's, pretending, to do something worthwhile, as a prophet of the Lord in Israel.

If I could, I would close this vignette with, Barbara Streisand, singing....."Memories".....

The Patriot Wars & Ode To Self-Evident Truths

This is in response to the Republican, pseudo-Christian, right-wing conspiracy rhetoric, still being espoused to this date, of which states, we Democrats, want to return to a pre-911 state. The very state with which Bush' leaguers had their heads stuck in the sand, ignoring the threat of those forms of Islamisms, in which there is no regard for the value of human life, cannot be reattained. We were always aware of this threat, and we will continue to be aware of this threat. And, as always, we continue to fight against the Republican ignorance that made 911 possible, by arguing to close our ports, until a way can be found to determine what passes through. Since we have not, we wait for the next 911.

The Patriot Wars
© 2001 Mark Robert Gates

Once again they are trying to hang patriots,
Only this time the tariffs are too steep to pay,
We cannot give in to people that participate in riots,
The mass murderers with a private torturous fray.
It’s not that we want to be, or need to, be pious,
It’s just that freedom rings in this land to stay.
So, when people with rituals and satanic tryouts,
Pick out innocent women and children for prey,
In the worst kind of unwanted and leveraged buyouts,
We need to go looking for the whites of their eyes,
And teach them the value of the freedom we prize.



Ode To Self-Evident Truths
© 2001 Mark Robert Gates

Freedom the concept,
Begat freedom the precept,
When america the frontier eclipsed two coasts,
And law the reality forced us to accept,
The settling down to frequent
And friendly singing throats.
Proclaiming the patriot’s way of life,
To be the matriarch’s duty after wife,
And the patriarch’s service to God,
And the oligarch’s duty grown mod.
Some call it idealism,
More cherish freedom, realism,
No need for abstract idiosyncrasies
And surrealism,
We have solid foundational
And lasting self-evident truths
That have not grown old or rusted
Since the day of their youth's.

LIKE LITHIUM FOR OUR MADNESS

© 2007 Mark Robert Gates

Pre-determined acts of cruelty
And random acts of blindness,
Are never property in God's realty,
As empty of heart
and soul is mindless.

God created us with a
capacity for thought,
And the capablility to care,
So when our vices
deliver us to naught,
Remember, faith reckoned
as righteousness is rare.

The star to focus on is Christ,
God alone is good
and we are all the same,
Belief is all we may
do that is right,
Thinking we can saved
by doing good is lame.

God gave us a choice
to live or die,
We chose to disregard
obedience to His Word's,
And, we still wonder at why,
His way is not the way
we always prefered.

We chose the lie
that sin is fun,
Certain that we'd
reap a treasure,
And, promised Him
we'd win this one,
Then blamed Him for
our lack of pleasure.

Power comes from turning
from sin and giving up,
Seize this invitation and
deliberate act of kindness,
To fill our lives with love,
peace and joy overflows our cup,
Let the light free from the
bushel basket causing blindness.

For, like Lithium for our madness,
God medicates and saves our souls,
Giving freely eternal gladness,
That the lightening no longer strikes
And, the thunder no longer rolls.

The storm and sin have cleared,
This reality brings us perfect weather,
And, closer and closer
to our hearts He has neared,
Without ever condemning us
to a tether.

THE INTERPRETATION OF ROMANS

© 2007, God’s, Christ’s and His Holy Spirit, as attributed by Mark Robert Gates

In Proverbs, Solomon tells us to acquire wisdom, knowledge and understanding. He proclaims them more valuable than gold and silver. Solomon had a lot of gold and silver, and wisdom, more than any other man on earth. He told us to obey instruction and the commandments of the Lord. What Solomon wrote is a richly guarded treasure today, and many people value and cherish his advice as the Word’s of God. We study God’s Word’s to enrich ourselves, and to know God’s will. Some, choose to study just portions, and to stake a claim to what they know. The book of Romans, for instance, teaches us the Gospel in its entirety, however, it is not enough. People cannot adequately understand the book of Romans, without study of the whole bible.

Some people question the need to study the whole bible. They wonder, “If John 3:16 is all it takes to be saved, why must I study the rest of Scripture?” Taking a position that faith is all a person needs is meritorious in its conception. It demands agreement on our part. According to Martin Luther, in the introduction to his, Commentary On The Epistle To The Romans, “Faith is a living daring confidence in God’s grace, so sure and certain that a man would stake his life on it a thousand times,” (xv). The writer of Hebrews, put it this way in chapter 11, verse, 1, “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” Surely, definitions give us enough of an understanding of faith, to realize we will stand on our faith alone, and nothing else. Certainly, we know Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob were all blessed by God, and not one of them ever read a word of Scripture. From this testimony, we can conclude, salvation does not come from reading a bible. Indeed, salvation comes from believing in Jesus Christ, God’s own Son.

Why then do people study the bible?

Faith in God leads us, who believe and follow Christ, on a search through God’s Word’s, which works to, and reveals God to us, is what R. C. Sproul teaches in his, Essential Truths Of The Christian Faith (Sproul 3). People, who have been given eternal life, are seeking to immerse themselves, in God’s Holy Commandments. Scriptures, contain a legacy, of how God has always loved His creation. His, history of love, contained in God’s Word’s, is a treasury of wisdom and knowledge, and believers and followers of Christ can gain much understanding from its study. Redemption is made more valuable, by understanding what God has worked through, in order to give us, a possibility of being just like Jesus. God has saved us from sin and death, by providing us with a model, and a means of achieving sanctity within that model. A diligent search of Scriptures will build confidence in our creator and a belief; He has always been in control.

Jack Kuhatschek writes in, Taking The Guesswork Out Of Applying The Bible:

Spiritual Christians, therefore, are characterized by two things: spiritual maturity and a greater capacity to understand God’s Word. These two qualities are closely related. It isn’t simply that mature Christians happen to know a lot of Scripture. Rather, they have allowed the Spirit of God to bring them from infancy to maturity (19).

Given a chance, and enough time, God will prove every bit of His Word’s to be true. Throughout God’s history, recorded in our bible, faithful men and women test God to see if He is true, and every time, He proves Himself without fail. Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, all Israel with Moses, Gideon and David, bear witness to God’s faithfulness to His Word’s. Given any opportunity, God delights in showing His love for all His creatures, to those who are looking for it.

Only believers will know, His truth, is in God’s Word’s. Listen to what God says, “And even if our Gospel is veiled it is veiled to those who are perishing, in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ, which is the image of God,” (2 Corinthians 4:3,4). Every believer and follower of Christ, will know God’s truth, and give witness to His light, however, people who are not believers in God, Christ and His Holy Spirit, will be so blinded by their idols, none will see His Word’s as truth. Unless, one has complete faith in Christ, as God’s Son, and recognizes, His creation speaks of His existence, and accepts every Word’s of God’s, Teaching, Gifts, Promises and blessings, without doubt and without fail, one will reject it all in favor of their idols.

“All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work,” (2 Timothy 3:16,17). Timothy’s verse, has never been proven false, and is one area, where God can be tested to see if He is true to His Word’s. Only, a dedicated study of all Scripture, will give God a chance to prove Himself true to his Word’s, especially in His above verse. Approaching any verse, with an understanding of His whole Word’s, will increase our understanding of God’s victory. God has won a battle and has defeated evil, sin and death. Knowing, His history of waging, a battle, is our beginning, of understanding God’s supreme glory.

“Faith without works is dead,” proclaims James in verses 17, 20, and 26 of chapter two of His epistle. He is not saying, salvation can be earned. He is saying, once salvation is obtained by faith, evidence of salvation, will be one’s resulting works. Studying a bible, is one of those works, of which will come of believing, through His Son, God has given us eternal life. We simply cannot be alive in Christ and ignore, any Word’s of God. Believers and followers of Christ, must do work, as studious scribes, if we are to satisfy our hunger, to know everything we can about God, Christ and His Holy Spirit. Our hunger cannot be satisfied, in any other way, than to read and study every Word’s of God’s self-revelation printed in present day bibles.

Also, as Word’s of God says, “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth,” (2 Timothy 2:15). Believers and followers of Christ, cannot accurately handle, all Word’s of God, which is truth, unless we devote a good portion of our time to its study. Listen, to Jesus in His, Sermon on the Mount, and bolt a foundation, of a believer and follower of Christ’s, thought to solid rock. We read and study… “So we may withstand the onslaught and flood of worldly opposition and bolt our faith to the solid rock of that foundation,” (Matthew 7: 24,25).


We cannot accurately handle, God’s Word’s, unless we view it as a whole.

Listen to R. C. Sproul in, Essential Truths Of The Christian Faith:

The bible itself is its own Supreme Court. The chief rule of biblical interpretation is, “Sacred Scripture is its own interpreter.” This principle means that the bible is to be interpreted by the bible. What is obscure in one part of Scripture may be made clear in another. To interpret Scripture by Scripture means that we must not set one passage of Scripture against another passage. Each text must be understood not only in the light of its immediate context but also in light of the context of the whole (25).

We must study, a whole bible, in order to know any of it. Dr. Wes Gerig and Dr. Doug Barcalow, stated in personal interviews, in fall of 1998, while both taught at Taylor University in Fort Wayne, Indiana, this same advice, and suggested as well, use of commentaries to help discover hidden contexts of Romans, and other passages, of which need, a whole bible for background. Commentaries, can explain contexts, and give clear exegesis of a text. Reference books, like, “Treasury of Scripture Knowledge,” can lead one to cross references and passages, of which clarify and further define, any given bible phrase. Dr. Barcalow, also, stressed an importance, of finding a readable text, however, if its not too confusing, lexical aids, from which help comes, for one to discover, meanings of Word’s in original languages, can be rewarding study helps.

Tom McMillan, who once was my pastor at, River Of Life Christian Fellowship, in Fort Wayne, Indiana, who I also interviewed in fall of 1998, echoed a theology textbook in saying, “Scripture must be interpreted in the light of the whole,” and however, added, “Who can know the whole, get an overview.” This pastor went on to ordain a divorced woman, in church, one who had left her husband for becoming violent, after he found she married him under false pretenses, and was refusing to become His one flesh wife. Tom went on to have an affair with this divorced woman, and then leave his wife and marry this divorced woman, instead. Tom, and all his children, demonized his ex-wife, and accused her of not loving them, all because this divorced woman had a big house and a pool, where Tom’s children could have a dog, something they had faulted daddy, for being unable to provide. “This material, possession (sic), was something they all valued more than their mother,” The world, to this day still teaches, is correct biblical theology, for having, desires of one’s heart. Last I heard, Tom, while still married in sin, died of cancer, in a place of which, God’s healing nature, could be of no help. So, therefore, going off a deep end, is possible, and bear in mind, is an extreme example, if one does not know all of God’s Word’s.

In its whole, and of our bible, Romans is a whole book, of which, must be known as a whole. Believers and followers of Christ cannot set Romans apart from our bible, and we cannot have a complete bible, without Romans. Both must be studied, in entirety. A doctrine of, wholeness, will increase enjoyment of our bible, since, no part will be beyond reach of our mind, when all of a bible, is searched, for any meaning, of any of our bible.

Martin Luther said about Romans:

This Epistle is really the chief part of the New Testament and the very purest Gospel, and is worthy not only that every Christian should know it word for word, by heart, but occupy himself with it everyday, as the daily bread of the soul. It can never be read or pondered too much, and the more it is dealt with the more precious it becomes, and the better it tastes (xi).

In Romans, Paul is big on faith, and builds his, Epistle, on a theme of justification by faith. Paul nods to Abraham’s, and all faith, of many, by which resulted, being justified before God. Paul makes it clear; none will be earning, salvation through works. To fully understand, how every one of God’s patriarchs and His prophets, throughout history, came to be justified by faith, requires reading about all. Understanding of faith will be strengthened, by knowing what others do. It is, for this reason, any study of Scripture, is most profitable. God teaches, about heroes of faith, through inspiration and illumination of His, Holy Spirit, however, He wishes for His people, to read His Word’s. God’s Word’s is written down, so we can study. Romans, is a theological text of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, writes William Barclay in, The Daily Bible Series: The Letter To The Romans (Barclay 1). Dr. Barcalow, points out, one best place for children to begin reading, is with stories and narratives, which is why, Gospels we have, are written in that way. It is easier to understand Christ’s Teaching’s, when we look at stories and narratives of Christ’s: action’s.

FF. Bruce said about Romans:

In the order, which ultimately became established Romans takes pride of place among the Pauline Epistles. Historically, this is apparently because it is the longest Epistle; but there is an innate fitness in the according of this position of primacy to the Epistle, which, above all others, deserves to be called ‘The Gospel According To Paul’ (21).

Embrace truth, for Jesus said, “You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free,” (John 8:32). Call out to light, in order, it light a path, of which is, “straight and narrow, to a tiny far away gate,” (Matthew 7:14). As, more well lit a path, more securely God can hold His redeemed, and on a way one should go. It is easy to wander off and go astray. Becoming lost can be made more difficult, by following a curriculum of God’s truth, and working, faithfully, everyday. Keep a firm grasp, on all knowledge; God has given to His people. Make with it a garment, to clothe away nakedness. Fall into arms of love. God has embraced you; embrace Him and everything He is in return. Do not let go.

Unite with truth. There is no greater ally than God, love Him, and all He has created and provided. Make His Word’s, His peoples very being, let His Word’s live in you. Take His Word’s, and live it, be one with God through it. There can be no, separation or division, between God’s people and our Lord, if we keep His Commandments. Do not struggle with worldly dilemmas; walk with God in his heavenly kingdom. Tie in with a winning cause.

Romans, is a good book to study, however, our most powerful way to study Romans, is to study it with, a whole bible as background. A winning, faith-will, empowers believers and followers of Christ, to pursue God’s Word’s, with hungry devotion. Everything in our bible, will interpret everything in our bible. A need to know God drives believers and followers of Christ, into all deep studies, of God’s self-revelation. More valuable than gold and silver, are all riches of God’s Word’s. “Delight yourself in the Lord; And He will give you the desires of your heart.” (Psalm 37:4). David knew God well, and he wrote about God, so all God’s people, could know God too. Not knowing, what David knows about God, could leave a person morally bankrupt, for David confessed sins and was forgiven. And, God has made it clear, unless a person blasphemes His Holy Spirit; He will forgive all His people their sins. John 3:16, clearly makes, all God’s people, want to know all of, what God has given, out of His benevolently, beloved, love for us.

LADY SONIA FANTASIA

Lady Sonia Fantasia
© 2007 Mark Robert Gates

Would ladylove and lady luck
Be judged united
For more than one night
And dawn eternity,
Blossoming out upon
Our new age like pled
I will forever be requited,
My Lady Sonia fantasy.

Will ever we share together
And have a marriage of monogamy?
Tarry forever after unwaveringly
And irresistibly in faithfulness?
Will unerring and undeniable obedience,
our result, of her glam be?
Still not knowing,
Let go I a shot in the dark,
Will we married Ladyness?

Even if a slave to love I’d be,
I believe in mutual submission,
All must submit to a microwave
To use the oven to heat things up,
We cannot get popped corn
Without creating the right fusion,
Enter the time and place
And degrees of requital,
And I hold out my cup.

I will always have sex with only you,
And I will always be with only you,
I will never do things with another,
And there will always only be just us,
Together forever,
I do anything you want,
Without grazing in mourning dew.
Lady Sonia,
Will you marry and unite with me
In my Lady Sonia Fantasia, for all y’us?

COMMENTS:
I really do belive, God's of our' Bible's, teaches marriage as mutual submission, hence, "A husband and a wife lie together and become one flesh." This is not possible, unless both submit mutually to one another, and with equal respect. And, for those who have trouble with the word submission, I understand mostly this is fallout from some men's concept of submission, however, rightly submission really is as simple as one having to submit to using the microwave the way its designed in order to get it to work.

No matter how one approaches a microwave, one must punch the correct buttons as required by the microwave, or one will not get the desired result. Furthermore, even a man must submit to the microwave to use it, and none can claim submission is not required to have sex with one's wife. If you know of any man who cannot accept having to submit to the microwave, then beware of this person, he is dangerous, and if you are married to one, get out now, as fast as possible, this man will be trying to find a way to blow away the microwave with a shotgun.

Also, as a photographer I have come to be known as God's number one nature fan, so I do not find photographs of naked women offensive. What God and I really want to know, when you look at a photograph of a naked woman, what goes through your mind? Are you a man who sees a candidate for rape, and calls this the subject in the photographs fault? If so, be forewarned, God and I do not consider that a natural response. Seeing a naked woman usually fills me with a desire to be married to her, and the desire to marry, is the natural one, God's put there.

Now, of course if the woman is already married and does not practice polygamy, then one cannot marry her, however, desiring to marry her is a natural desire. If one thinks one is going to marry a woman just because of his desire to do so, and especially if she is married and not practicing polygamy, then this is not a natural thought, and not the woman's fault. Ask, God's of our' Bible's, about what David was thinking of when he saw Bathsheba, his thoughts were not clean since he ended up murdering her husband and claiming her. I, and God's of the Bible's, do not want men claiming anymore, it is nakedness, that causes their impure thoughts, I repeat, impure thoughts when viewing a naked woman are not natural. Natural, is the desire to marry.

Ephesians, Chapter 5, Verses 1-5 & 22-33:

Eph 5:1 γινεσθε ουν μιμηται του θεου ως τεκνα αγαπητα
Eph 5:2 και περιπατειτε εν αγαπη καθως και ο χριστος ηγαπησεν ημας και παρεδωκεν εαυτον υπερ ημων προσφοραν και θυσιαν τω θεω εις οσμην ευωδιας
Eph 5:3 πορνεια δε και πασα ακαθαρσια η πλεονεξια μηδε ονομαζεσθω εν υμιν καθως πρεπει αγιοις
Eph 5:4 και αισχροτης και μωρολογια η ευτραπελια τα ουκ ανηκοντα αλλα μαλλον ευχαριστια
Eph 5:5 τουτο γαρ εστε γινωσκοντες οτι πας πορνος η ακαθαρτος η πλεονεκτης ος εστιν ειδωλολατρης ουκ εχει κληρονομιαν εν τη βασιλεια του χριστου και θεου
Eph 5:22 αι γυναικες τοις ιδιοις ανδρασιν υποτασσεσθε ως τω κυριωEph 5:23 οτι ο ανηρ εστιν κεφαλη της γυναικος ως και ο χριστος κεφαλη της εκκλησιας και αυτος εστιν σωτηρ του σωματος

Eph 5:24 αλλ ωσπερ η εκκλησια υποτασσεται τω χριστω ουτως και αι γυναικες τοις ιδιοις ανδρασιν εν παντι
Eph 5:25 οι ανδρες αγαπατε τας γυναικας εαυτων καθως και ο χριστος ηγαπησεν την εκκλησιαν και εαυτον παρεδωκεν υπερ αυτης
Eph 5:26 ινα αυτην αγιαση καθαρισας τω λουτρω του υδατος εν ρηματι
Eph 5:27 ινα παραστηση αυτην εαυτω ενδοξον την εκκλησιαν μη εχουσαν σπιλον η ρυτιδα η τι των τοιουτων αλλ ινα η αγια και αμωμος
Eph 5:28 ουτως οφειλουσιν οι ανδρες αγαπαν τας εαυτων γυναικας ως τα εαυτων σωματα ο αγαπων την εαυτου γυναικα εαυτον αγαπα
Eph 5:29 ουδεις γαρ ποτε την εαυτου σαρκα εμισησεν αλλ εκτρεφει και θαλπει αυτην καθως και ο κυριος την εκκλησιαν
Eph 5:30 οτι μελη εσμεν του σωματος αυτου εκ της σαρκος αυτου και εκ των οστεων αυτου
Eph 5:31 αντι τουτου καταλειψει ανθρωπος τον πατερα αυτου και την μητερα και προσκολληθησεται προς την γυναικα αυτου και εσονται οι δυο εις σαρκα μιαν
Eph 5:32 το μυστηριον τουτο μεγα εστιν εγω δε λεγω εις χριστον και εις την εκκλησιαν
Eph 5:33 πλην και υμεις οι καθ ενα εκαστος την εαυτου γυναικα ουτως αγαπατω ως εαυτον η δε γυνη ινα φοβηται τον ανδρα

TOMORROW, TODAY, LIFE COULD GET WORSE

I logged onto http://astrology.com/ just for fun, to find out what is in the stars for me today, and this was my horoscope:

The simple pleasures in life don't really seem to be offering up anything pleasurable these days. Try shifting your focus to the more complicated pleasures in life.

I, however, have other plans, I am still free falling, into it, to see if the bottomless pit is really bottomless. I am at altitude -1,000,000,000 miles, past the equator, off the coast of the Milky Way, and, three trillion years into the black hole, with no sight of bottom.

HOORAY FOR HILLARY, ONLY PERSON MAN ENOUGH TO DO THE JOB RIGHT

At last, we have a possible chance to return to being a civilized nation, with Senator Clinton, officially in the running, and the biggest hat yet tossed in the rink, to boot.

There are many things, these lame duck, pseudo-Christian, right-wing conspiracy, Republicans, will simply not allow being tended to, poor education, shrinking household incomes, people slipping helplessly below poverty levels, crime going on virtually unacosted, mental health and other disabilities going either untreated, or being ignored completely, while they argue to stop the only research that shows any hope of help, stem cells.

Our, platform will simply have to be arranged around contributing in any manner possible for us, as can be done, in our increasing our own public welfare. We are fighting wars abroad, while young boys and girls are being treated like victims, whose victimizer sees a waste to be scavenged off our city and country roads, and raped, molested and murdered. Somehow, we have not gotten the message to all of us, God wants us to hear, we who are still alive; we have lives worth living, and we have souls worth saving.

I am happy to be, announcing my availability in any manner possible, in helping in Senator Clinton's campaign to become president, and I hope she does not think this rude and unmannerly, I see a person here running for president, who is the only person, man enough, to do the job that needs being done, right now, in our America.

THE PLAUSABLE DENIABILITY SWEEPSTAKES, FILL OUT YOUR ENTRY TODAY

© 2007 Mark Robert Gates

We all know how this works, we send in our operative, with an agreement, if caught we in America will deny all knowledge of this person having any existence. In Iraq, and given today's Iraq policy, it is time we "We American's" fall back on this, plausible deniabilty, as, there is still time and, as, there is still a possibility of maintaining, America's pristine, war image, by denying any involvement, by those past operative's now caught, in Iraqi war failure's, and involved in our current Ameri-government affairs. So, lets get our stories' straight and make sure we do not spill our guts, in a mistaken fear of loss, of our credible use of plausible deniability. Please, fill out your, Plausible Deniabiltiy Sweepstakes, entry, and send it in today, "We" could be America's next big winner.

We simply, all deny together, there is anyone, we know of, named, George W. Bush, who ever was, or who is now, an American president.

CASEY AT THE BAT

by Ernest Lawrence Thayer
Published in The Examiner (San Francisco) (3 June 1888)

The Outlook wasn't brilliant for the Mudville nine that day:
The score stood four to two, with but one inning more to play.
And then when Cooney died at first, and Barrows did the same,
A sickly silence fell upon the patrons of the game.

A straggling few got up to go in deep despair. The rest
Clung to that hope which springs eternal in the human breast;
They thought, if only Casey could get but a whack at that -
We'd put up even money, now, with Casey at the bat.

But Flynn preceded Casey, as did also Jimmy Blake,
And the former was a lulu and the latter was a fake;
So upon that stricken multitude grim melancholy sat,
For there seemed but little chance of Casey's getting to the bat.

But Flynn let drive a single, to the wonderment of all,
And Blake, the much despis-ed, tore the cover off the ball;
And when the dust had lifted, and the men saw what had occurred,
There was Jimmy safe at second and Flynn a-hugging third.

Then from 5,000 throats and more there rose a lusty yell;
It rumbled through the valley, it rattled in the dell;
It knocked upon the mountain and recoiled upon the flat,
For Casey, mighty Casey, was advancing to the bat.

There was ease in Casey's manner as he stepped into his place;
There was pride in Casey's bearing and a smile on Casey's face.
And when, responding to the cheers, he lightly doffed his hat,
No stranger in the crowd could doubt 'twas Casey at the bat.

Ten thousand eyes were on him as he rubbed his hands with dirt;
Five thousand tongues applauded when he wiped them on his shirt.
Then while the writhing pitcher ground the ball into his hip,
Defiance gleamed in Casey's eye, a sneer curled Casey's lip.

And now the leather-covered sphere came hurtling through the air,
And Casey stood a-watching it in haughty grandeur there.
Close by the sturdy batsman the ball unheeded sped-
"That ain't my style," said Casey. "Strike one," the umpire said.

From the benches, black with people, there went up a muffled roar,
Like the beating of the storm-waves on a stern and distant shore."
Kill him! Kill the umpire!" shouted someone on the stand;
And it's likely they'd a-killed him had not Casey raised his hand.

With a smile of Christian charity great Casey's visage shown;
He stilled the rising tumult; he made the game go on;
He signaled to the pitcher, and once more the spheroid flew;
But Casey still ignored it, and the umpire said, "Strike two."

"Fraud!" cried the maddened thousands, and echo answered fraud;
But one scornful look from Casey and the audience was awed.
They saw his face grow stern and cold, they saw his muscles strain,
And they knew that Casey wouldn't let that ball go by again.

The sneer is gone from Casey's lip, his teeth are clenched in hate;
He pounds with cruel violence his bat upon the plate.
And now the pitcher holds the ball, and now he lets it go,
And now the air is shattered by the force of Casey's blow.

Oh, somewhere in this favored land the sun is shining bright;
The band is playing somewhere, and somewhere hearts are light,
And somewhere men are laughing, and somewhere children shout;
But there is no joy in Mudville - mighty Casey has struck out.

Commentary:

© 2007 Mark Robert Gates:

This inning replayed, for those unaware,
George W. Bush' league warfare,
struck out last October, and for all:
lame duck, pseudo-Christian, right-wing,
Bush' Leaguer's, the war is over,
and the pennant is lost.
This even a diehard Cub's fan knows.
3000 to 1, is enough swings at one bat.

When I get my room, in the house on Gold Street,
in God's New Founded Kingdom on Earth,
I will ask for a radio, from which to listen,
for maybe, one day the Cub's will win a pennant.

SPRIGHTLY DOTH THE SPRING, SPRING AFTER SNOWFALLING'S

A CONSPIRACY OF ONE

© 2007 Mark Robert Gates, except where U.S. Code, is presented.

Fourscore, and so many years ago, not even Abe Lincoln can remember, we were at war with ourselves, and a discontented South, gladly conceded, so as to make their peace. Now, we once again fight the war, it seems, in Texas. Where, a bewildered student body, with tireless, laziness on their hands, has nothing better to do with their extracurricular activity, than to tilt at statues, in the lawn.

It seems, there just cannot be a remembrance, anywhere that, there ever was a Southside to our civil war, and only a Northside, must present, for the entire field of battle. We cannot be allowed to see, who in history, stood, against our sturdy northern stock of men, in a contest, to end all subjection of men to another's personal will. There, were many on both sides, who fought to contain, in history, a place, where slavery and servitude, end.

And, yet, there are those who would closet those who were amongst the fight, and did not lose a right to be seen in public, and even to be seen as a statue. To do this is to hide, and then erase, a part of American history, that must never be forgotten, lest, we do it all again. That is right, after putting those statues in the closet, and defying a man's right to be remembered, or another's, right to remember him, then we have no reminder, we once fought to end the right to own, or alter on demand, another person. And, as such, to be able to alter on demand another's law-abiding, person, property, will, heart's desire, love, passion, remembrance, dream, knowledge, cognitive science, theology, imagination or inclination, against their will, is to defy present civil rights law.

If we fail to learn the lesson's of yesterday, by looking at the statues of those who fought with the Southside, then we fail to learn, our place, is not to decide the contest again, however, to remember. No discrimination, therefore, is ever allowed on the basis of, deciding civil rights, and according to U.S. Federal code, penalties are allowed if such a group decide to conspire against rights, or conspire to interfere with civil rights. And, the rights of the man, in the statue, still state, "I am allowed to stand, here."
