Humility a-borning

“Release me, O Lord, from bondage of Self, that I may....” (From a prayer by Bill Wilson, circa 1935)

I have told all my raucous slithering lies again
Acknowledging their import
And the damage of their roiling ignominious defiance...
They never die, you know..just Hide.

We’re not supposed to crawl, but still we do

Like shameful larvae, wishing to weave doormats
Of our worthless latter lives.

We can not know the wealth and worth of true Humility

So long as prayer seeks whip and derogation.
What agony we wallow in, Asking for forgiveness from the injured ones !

And, sure, like misers we put by,

As in a bulging purse, the generous pardons
Ill-gotten by our sniveling words
From many injured ones. And we are smug.

Then, facing one who once was snared

By blandishments of ours and then was crushed
By our invidious libel...
Yes here we learned!

This man we cruelly traduced professed

To not remember our offense, so magnified
In our iniquitous memory.
He laughed !He turned away, to jettison our amends.

“I don’t recall,” he said, “your words or deeds,

"But anyway, you were not...are not much.
“I saw you then a liar and lout
“And I believe, you’ll always be !!!”

So whether I had wanted solace, truly

And forgiveness from this mortal man,
The power of Truth poured out his face
To catapult my soul into a fresh dimension.

Beginning then, I have felt taller, known myself

And never skulked again.
I mend a fence of friend
Most every day, now.And know some portion of Humility.

Lazy Moonbats

It just tickles me plumb to death wnem the WHOLE of the Antique MS Media falls on its bum, like a pack of pigs on ice !

Dana Milbank of the Washinmgton Post got taken to the woodshed and chewed out by his bosses for wearing a hunting outfit on Keith Olberman's show. (NOBODY watches MSNBC, so I have to tell you about it !)

NBC's resident idiot, Dave Gregory, on the White House beat, who called WH spokesman Scott McClalland "a jerk" on camera had to apologize to the whole nation on Tim Russert's Meet-The-Press show.

But the GREATEST, most beautiful moment of all was when the USA's great speed skater, Shari Davis won the gold medal ! He is a handsome man of color, you know.

It was a very sharp stick in the eye --(and the CRAW)-- for Bryant Gumbel, of HBO, who had decried the irrelevance of the Winter Olympics because.."with no black competitors, it looks like a GOP convention..."

The thing about these snotnosed children is that they are lazy.

They do no research. They do not care. If THEY do not know it, it isn't true. Just "shoot fromk the lip" !!!

Ignorance? Sure. But my son, Keith calls them "Lazy Journalists".

And... their laziness is going to kill their influence. That is my prediction. The "Consumers" of information are not simply SMARTER than these myopic moonbats.

We are, none of us, lazy. They are.
