LAND THAT I LOVE



Will it be another year when American democracy -- government for the people by the people -- will be stuck?

Will we be chanting, raving and ranting again over last year's litany -- debt ceiling, size of government, Obamacare, immigrants, voter rights, unemployment, environment -- again, and again, on that fiscal cliff?

Okay, tears come to my eyes because ... because I'm worried, because I'm saddened, remembering better days --yeah, sure -- probably because I was younger and ideals seemed IDEAL-ER than they do now. Anyhow, tears means I'm feeling sorry for myself -- sorry that we're into the new year, and so many things that I love -- that give me pride, make me utterly American -- oh my God -- there are so many wonderful things about America that are stymied, disappeared, no longer the law or the passionate belief of my neighbors, the millions of Americans, who I thought were like me.

Okay. I'll stand up straight and tall and sing this with you -- sing it very, very, very loudly.

I read a lot of American history, and believe me, we have been through this before.

America is a country only because we consider it so. It will never die if we do not let it die. The Constitution is a series of agreements that create the reality of America.

Do sing, laugh and shout. Define the nay sayers!

Together we are STRONG and FREE!

ML, Carl

"#Gratitude Em 4 sharing your POV! Since I am "in love for the Last time" monogamously-shared with my MS-OH-WI man,(2 months together as a couple YET we have NOT met face-to-face YET),
I must share my recent new-2-me "LAND THAT I LOVE" POV. =D

My beau Jim will be teaching me to overcome a very real fear I have: how to shoot a gun.

Never in a million years did I ever think, let alone actually, be in love with a man who is a current, licensed conceal-carry daily wearer, no-combat veteran whose hobby is making award-winning
hand-made knives! Add to that: he is a Harley rider/ collector, he is a very cranium & facially hairy guy who exudes tremendous self confidence & that he is a 3rd degree mason amongst too many
other qualities that are too numerous to mention;

I am very blown away about how much I & my heterosexual preferences have changed since my divorce in 2002 !!! <8

As a survivor of domestic abuse, Jim is what I used to think was "the exact opposite" of what I desired in a man.

Turns out I was 1000% times wrong !!! =D Our 2013 union is our mutually shared dream/ ideal come true in flesh! How blessed we are, @SpiritChemistryALIVEinSpiritUALLYLove especially when we
do "officially" meet in person - flesh to flesh! ;-D
Ah sweet consummation of the "LAND THAT I LOVE" !!! LMAO !!!
