"Keep going, old son, as you are"! "Call attention to graft or the meter's glad owner," "And you're in their killin' jar." I don't want to die on the stake like Monk Bruno, But my life's been too blessed for retreat. I only talk about what books and papers tell me, As the story _I_ first got was incomplete! "How can you criticize, (you fool) at all, your Founding Fathers"? "How can you draw (in shame?), a soldier's pay"? "What's this "Watchers" foolishness really saying -- really meaning"? "And what's this crazy "view" of yours to say"? I criticize "your" frowning fathers 'cause I understand they _earned_ it! I take the pay -- (a welfare!), it's their _show_. Professor Drake equates, quite well, the stunning thought they're out there! To have the guts to stand *outside* to know. "And what of this ethnic affection you have"? "And what do _you_ do with your money"? "Where do you get off just speaking your mind"? "And what's with this rhyming unfunny"? Folks *appeared* to me fondly as I _took_ back my sight. Well, I'm _trying_ to keep it from you. You could sure try it =85 be better between us. I do it for pleasure =85 to stop feeling screwed. "Do you go to a church? If you don't then why not"? "=85Believing the only *true* God?" "Do you have family values? Do you pray? Do you tithe"? "Will your reverend give you a nod"? =85Stopped beating your wife? Does she cry when you hit her? I have a small fire, my own. I believe in commitment. To myself. To what's real. No, the reverend's hefting his stone. "What's all this whining regarding tree hugging"? "Why do you rail at those folks who've done well"? "Where's your compassion for Di and Theresa?" "You should slop with the pigs and roll in their hell"! The Earth is our home, our provider, and Mother. It's the _not_ giving back I abhor and despise. It's Theresa then Di, wasn't _that_ what you're meaning? Perhaps, but you'd precede me -- to _your_ complete surprise! Lehmberg@snowhill.com Yeah -- it's towards the end of the conversation that the proud and patronizing conservative invariably gets abusive and insulting -- about the same time I begin to smile. See -- if I'm wrong, it means nothing; every body, including me, has a big laugh at _my_ expense. But if _he's_ wrong, it is the most profound disaster for us all at every level and category of our existence. Well -- you asked. Now you know. Great suffering Zot! They look through a keyhole and assume they see an entirety! Let's just open the furshingler door. -- Explore the Alien View? http://www.fortunecity.com/roswell/arecibo/46/ "I cleave the heavens, and soar to the infinite. What others see from afar, I leave far behind me." - Giordano Bruno, while burning at the fundamentalist's stake for trying to open the door.
