The Eyes of a Child

A Young Girl Looks upon the Sea

A Young Girl Looks upon the Sea
By Brian Thomas Armstrong

A child looked out upon the dawn and wondered of her father
The mother held her tears and watched the girl stare out the window
A mast, a ship, a darkened haze floating in the horizon
But none was seen among the waves, and the child feared her father taken by Poseidon

All day she stood there gazing out and not a word she said, unspoken worries her mother shared
for she also feared her husband dead
All night again the child stayed gazing at the darkened sea, but in the new dawn still she waited
and still no relief for them had come to be

Some say the sad girl waits there still, and on darkened lonely nights
If you go to her old cabin you can see her in the window staring out upon the stormy waves
when you turn out the candle lights

I Have a Dream

My dream is that human nature catches up to human enlightenment and that they become confidants and friends. When that happens I dream that mass media will spread like lightning
mass understanding and cooperation rather than mass hysteria and public strife.

My dream can be found in everyone, everything, and in every religion. My dream is faith in humanity that gives me faith in myself.

Mine is a social dream of a
better world.

The DC Obsession with Dr. Seuss

The DC Obsession with Dr. Seuss

Is DC Crazy, or just orally lazy? – Asked the common man.
The Palin answered no! , and then babbled about her Uncle Sam.
Pork was served up Texas style, when Cruzy brought green eggs and ham.
The Markey he then quoted the Lorax, in a Massachusetts scam.
Crazy! Lazy! Dumb, or Stingy, in D.C ask someone who knows,
 even though who knows, who knows, why their Dr. Seuss hat shows!

The New American State Capitalist: Pot, booze, and cigarettes; in that order.

With Washington State and Colorado taking the lead in the new American capitalistic experiment that is legal heavily taxed, heavily demanded for by the public recreational marijuana,  as long as the State of the Union doesn't spin out of control  because of new state laws such as I-502 (WA.) and Amendment 64 (CO.) other states are sure to follow Washington and Colorado like dominoes.  It seems unlikely our nation’s kids will suddenly turn to hard drugs like heroin because marijuana is so readily available now, if anything I should hope it will help steer people away from the new national epidemic of heroin deaths and addiction, given an easily accessible relatively safe alternative for self- medication such as marijuana.  A sure bet is that every state in the union will soon follow Washington and Colorado once the great experiment pays off in a few years. How could they not follow when other states see Washington and Colorado’s monumental debts disappear because of the gigantic revenue, jobs, and of course tax income that legalizing marijuana will bring to both struggling post-recession state economies?
One could say that the old “free capitalist” is returning to the modern American state business man’s attitude towards their perceived states’ rights, and the Federal Governments perceived authority over those rights. The other great American experiment happening right now is how far these states can push it with the Federal Government before having to run for cover?  In the age of the World Wide Web, the public opinion forum is truly becoming the new supreme World ruler.  This new people’s media army can and will topple governments, dictators, and the like. If enough public social hysteria is generated through social media and the Nightly Fox News Team, public perception and American drug laws can change back and forth in American history quicker than most political analysts can ever accurately keep up with or predict them.
A “free capitalist” can be likened to the good old small business owner of the entrepreneurial capitalist days of the cowboy era. Basic and simple to follow standard ethical rules consisted of: Unless it involves horse thievery, outright murder, or too much public, social, or commercial embarrassment, you can pretty much sell anything  to anyone  who wants it and will pay dearly for it, without raising to many eyebrows. Back in the 1800’s until the early 1900’s, this was just good old fashioned capitalism at its finest. In those days that was the American dream, and semi-unregulated entrepreneurship was the only true road to success for the little guy at that time.
According to a recent CBS News poll presented this past January; Americans who support legal weed finally outnumber those who don’t in American society.  It is a close divide though on the legalization issue at 51% in favor of legal marijuana, compared to 44% against. With a growing modern sentiment of indifference against marijuana, and the perceived public need to move on when it comes to weed and focus on bigger issues in American politics, and especially abroad, it won’t be long now until most the other states turn to legal marijuana to cure their financial ills. Now that neither political side cares anymore enough to try to stop the inevitable pot invasion of America, it can now be seen as a much better political and capitalistic tactic to make a profit on pot if people want it, as long as everyone can get away with it by everyone paying the right happy to take your money local authorities.  Here’s to you Washington State and Colorado for bringing back good old fashioned American State Capitalism at its best.
