We live in a Society of Blame; the Republicans, the Tea Party, the evil rich, and the evil corporations. Corporations provide jobs for Americans, and yes, the CEO’s make an insane amount of money. Why no crying over the outrageous amounts of money brought in by the Hollywood elite and athletes? Class warfare from our government and liberal elite? It’s not any certain party’s fault, they’re all to blame for being fiscally irresponsible, and not using common sense! Instead of making…
I have a concern that I would like to share with the fellow-members of this site.
I am a grandmother who assists my daughter (who is also a member at Big Dawg) in home-schooling her children. My other daughter (I have 4 adult sons and 2 adult daughters) is a Franciscan sister who is the principal of a Catholic school. The concern that I am sharing in this post comes from my deep relationship with these two women, and their devotion to the formation and educating of children in the…Continue

"Never Did" by R. Gibbs
Cabagehead and Turtle were sitting on the beach
One was in the middle, the other out of reach
When up trotted a maiden, who spied them and she said
"The truth is in the nevermore, locked in Carroll's head."
The Turtle answered "Sweetie, Hear me now, I beg.
Stand looking pretty. Show some cleavage and leg
We are speaking gentlemen, see our cigars and pants
We know all of wonderments, reason, happenstance."
The maiden smiled…

Silent, said my Spirit
To what thoughts my flesh thinks
Let us never speak
For your thoughts saddens me
Mute thy reflections
Let not my old soul be as a wandering ghost
In a world where other friendly ghosts wait
But never again to connect!
To be cut by the Blades Of Trees
Rejoice, said my Flesh
And remember the young girl's winks
Let us never sink
So dust of time darkens our…

Should that which I have done was done well
Then wouldest thou see me
Harken fast, lend thy whole self to tarry as if it were thy own thought
Before one can trammel up the consequence
And rest thee thou own mind with lies and deception
I am not as you now witness
But was once an iron and steel
Kicking in the very Gates to Hell
And daring the very worst of the…

I Have Dreamt In Dreams

Ah! Spirit. You have arrived. If my tongue will allow such expressions of grief and joy to mingle in one mouth! Sing, all of you who know and understand! Do not peer upon me now with mangled eye and troubled brow, Gathered Friends, for I will not hear of it! Put away the dirge drums and the weeping fife and sit together all and rejoice, for I am of good heart, even as I am gone before your eyes! The grief once par with my…Continue

To a DEAR Friend…

In heaven, lo, the angels beamed
And one allowed the purest feather from the delicate wing
Of a Paradise Dove to float earthward to land
Softly on the brow of a newly birthed baby girl.
She moved and snuggled in and a smile more precious
Than all the treasures of earth
Warmed the heart and spirit of the child’s parents
To this very day that same…Continue

In Conversation (With Idiots Abounding)
Stand thee back and clean the winds
For fraudulence thou breath is tainted
Sours and heats like the dragon you follow
My own prayers in the air!
I know this for I have eyes wide open
My senses are not dulled as your own
I am not walking in my sleep
Following shadows and villains
In fear of fellow chattel’s denunciation!
Reason is not some émigré towards me
For I am…Continue

Occupy Unmasked, as many of you know, is a film by Stephen K. Bannon and Andrew Breitbart. The first thing I have to say about the film is that it made me physically nauseous. The second is that you need to watch it. You need to understand how much the Left hates us and you need to understand that they are only concerned with tearing us down. They do NOT have a solution or an alternative to our system or beliefs.
In the words of Alinsky, they are a movement controlled by…Continue
