The Remnant 02 Oil Paint Rendered
We are throwing away Democracy
because it interferes with our ability
to make money any way we can,
and we desperately need all the money
we can get
any way we can get it.

Why?

Because we say so.
That's why.

No one needs more money
than they can spend,
even buying luxury yachts
and islands to house 
our sex trade operations,
and off-shore fictitious companies
to mask our money-laundering schemes.

But an entire political party
wants more money than they can spend.
And it is the wanting
that drives the insanity behind
Profit At Any Price At Anyone Else's Expense
No Matter What!

"Just give me more, NOW!"
Is the mantra of the day.

And it operates beyond all reason every day.

And is the end of life as we know it.

And, pretty much has been,
since the invention of money--
or its equivalent,
buying "the poor with silver,
and the needy for a pair of sandals"
(Amos 6:8).

I'm retired, and still finding my way--but now, I don't have to pretend that I know what I'm doing. I retired after 40.5 years as a minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, serving churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and North Carolina. I graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in Austin, Texas, and Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. My wife, Judy, and I have three daughters and five granddaughters within about twenty minutes from where we live--and are enjoying our retirement as much as we have ever enjoyed anything.
