So, let me see if I understand this,
“When our memory goes, who we are, then goes?
There is something deeply heart-breaking about that.
 
How do we measure our progress as humans,
when our previous memories are no longer?
Are we truly blessed with an Eternal mind of Spirit,
where our memories are never lost?
 
How will our God judge us,
if there is no recall of our sins,
or our glories in His name?
 
Is this when trusting God is so important?
Trusting that He will return to us,
our precious memories of the gifts of this life?
 
I can only hope so.
For without my memories of you,
would this life seemed without purpose.

“One of Seven Poems of “The Master‘s Series of Poetry.”

On this day
the Master revealed
His greatest gift to mankind.
 
This gift was rendered on a mountain of stone
reflected on a setting sun
to a multitude of many
in one of the many lessons
given to multitudes in those years. 
 
The question
that came toward the end of that day
was, “ Master, what is the greatest gift
that God gives to all of us?”  asked the young
man in the multitude of that day.
 
The Master replied,
“The greatest gift that my Father gives to all
is the secret of Forgiveness.
 
In rendering forgiveness to ones self
and also forgiveness of others
does a sinner reveal
the keys to heaven
and the eternal Love of our Father.
 
Forgiveness assures the eternal love of the Father
and being in the arms of His Love forever.”
So said the Master of my life
on this day.

"A Review of President Obama' Lies" A Commentary by John J. Rigo.  Picture courtesy of Google Image search.

“A Review of President Obama’ Lies” A Commentary by John J. Rigo. Picture courtesy of Google Image search.

A reading of the comment section of the local Cedar Creek paper in East Texas, The Monitor, occasionally brings a beautifully written commentary by a local resident.  In the Sunday, January 19th, 2014 issue such a commentary is written by Jim Romer of Tool, Texas in the “Letters to the Editor” under the heading of “Famous Presidential Lies.” 

Nixon:  “I am not a crook.”

George W. Bush:  “Read my lips, no new taxes.”

Clinton:  “I did not have sex with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.”

President Obama: 

“I will have the most transparent administration in history.”

“the stimulus will fund shovel-ready jobs.”

“I am focused like a laser on creating jobs.”

“the IRS is not targeting anyone.”

“it was a spontaneous riot about a movie.”

“I will put an end to the type of politics that breeds division, conflict and cynicism;”

“You didn’t build that!”

“I will restore trust in government.”

“The Cambridge cops acted stupidly.”

“The public will have five days to look at every bill that lands on my desk.”

“It’s not my red-line-it’s the world’s red line.”

“Whistle blowers will be protected in my administration.”

“We got back every dime we used to rescue the banks and auto companies, with interest.”

“I am not spying on American citizens.”

“Obamacare will be good for America.”

“You can keep your doctor.”

“If you like it, you can keep your current healthcare plan.”

“Premiums will be lowered by $2,500.” 

“I knew nothing about “Fast and Furious” gun running to Mexican drug cartels.”

“I knew nothing about IRS targeting conservative groups.”

“I knew nothing about what happened in Benghazi.”

“I have never met my uncle from Kenya who is in the country illegally and was arrested and ordered to leave country over 20 years ago, and I have never lived with that uncle. (Obama finally admited on December 5th, 2013, that he did know his uncle and that he did live with him).

The biggest lie of all, “I, Barrack Husein Obama, pledge to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America.”

Commentary from  September 25th, 2014:  I am reposting what seems to be a popular poem that I wrote regarding our President.  Earlier in the year while undergoing a medial procedure, my doctor and I shared our despise for President Obama.  Truthfully, I always choke up when I have to use the word “President” before Obama’s name.  If anyone in our history was not worthy of the title, Obama is surely the one.
 
My doctor is of course, an educated man but sadly lives in denial regarding the powers of Obama.  His take is that President Obama will never be impeached but is now “boxed in” and will not be able to bring any further harm to our country.
 
I tend to realize that this is the attitude of the majority of educated individuals that I come upon in my daily life.  There seems to be a trend where there is a lot of shouting and crying over the lying regime that Obama has put into place in our country but nothing is being accomplished by the Republican party, a party that has truly lost its way in leadership for our country. 
 
To my way of thinking reality will only set in when the majority of the white middle class of this country are herded into Federal “Care Camps” under Obama as they await the new gas chambers built by his administration.  When that day comes I will be dearly holding my American Flag and fighting to the death in an attempt to save my country from the tyranny of Obama. 
 
 
 
Somewhere along my journey
I stepped into a time machine.
I do not remember exactly when it happened.
I stepped forward in a strange land where a language
was spoken that did not sound like any tongue I knew.
 
The beings looked like me.
The planet seemed the same
but it was not.
 
There was a new god
in this land
in this dimension.
His name was Obama.
 
I looked closer at the eyes
of those about me.
Their was a strange blankness
in their eyes
an emptiness of spirit
I could not explain. 
 
I eagerly sought a sight of a flag pole
to see what land I might be in.
My eyes sought the Red, White and Blue.
 
Instead I looked with fright upon a flag
all to familiar from a past election.
It was the flag of Obama.
God did not save us.

I kiss thee
with my heart
upon my lips.
 
My breath held
in anticipation
of the moment.
 
Held so long
afraid to take
that next breath.
 
This magic
overtakes me
in this moment
forever locked
in your embrace.
