THE SIRENS

 /   /  0 Comments
 

THE SIRENS is one part of a larger project: To Summarize The Tales Of The Odyssey, by Homer, in a series of original poems and songs. The final work has six poems linked by five songs of which THE SIRENS is an adaptation. I've attributed the art and pictures used to create this visual dimension, and I will share the other components as available.

BACKGROUND CHECKS AND GUN RESTRICTIONS WERE PART AND PARCEL OF LIFE IN THE TOWNS AND POPULATED REGIONS OF THE OLD WEST, AS ALL REAL COWBOYS UNDERSTOOD. WE NEED TO STOP HANDING GUNS TO TERRORISTS AND PSYCHOPATHS.

I DON'T THINK THEY'RE MEAN ENOUGH FOR ME

 /   /  1 Comments
 

When America elects a President, they need to realize that this individual will be defending American VALUES AND INTERESTS in the world arena. If the person we elect is a bigot with no experience in government and diplomacy, we lose the high ground with respect to dealing with terrorists and despots around the world. All they need to do is point to our own treatment of other cultures and minorities to claim that we are hypocrites who don't practice what we preach, so why should anyone else. Too much TV and media hype persuades many that elections are about choosing Superheroes, not qualified representatives. This always seems to be the case, not just in 2016. Reflecting on the 1988 confirms this political misconception.

I Guess We'd Better Back Him

 

It's sad to see that the leaders of the once great Republican Party who had enough integrity to realize that Donald trump was a rash, bigoted time bomb, feeding off the darkest biases and prejudices of human nature, have now decided to get in line and sup with the devil, regardless of their better instincts. The leaders have lost control of their party, because they never really led. They were never willing to sit down and negotiate with the liberal opposition, and as a result, they lost the middle ground and the heart of Americans in general. It must be hard to kiss ass with a tyrant to appease their misguided constituents who no longer trust their leadership capacities...The ship is sinking, and all they can do is bale water and search for some way to never let it happen again.Good luck with that.

CAIN AND ABEL

The majority of Americans (even a majority of NRA members) have no problem with background checks for those who would purchase firearms. It's the only way to keep arms out of the hands of terrorists and lunatics. Failing to do so is a recipe for disaster. It balances the right to bear arms with the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. CAIN AS ABEL considers the consequences of handing  the wrong people the instruments of death.
