Soñé contigo esta mañana

Soñé esta mañana algo suave
Como una brisa de nuestro Panitao
Aromático y verde, fresco y lleno de esperanza
Soñé contigo y me sentía completo

Sentí el olor de tu piel
Me di vuelta para abrazarte
Pero no te encontré
No había más que una atado de frazadas en la cama desordenada

Te miro en fotos cada rato
Miro dentro de tus ojos grandes
Y cada vez te pones más hermosa
Y más lejos

Encuentro las cosas que has hecho
En tu manera libre y natural
Vuelas hasta aquí y después a cantar allá
Como el rayadito hermoso debajo del alero

Encontré tu tejido y me hizo maravillar
Los pacientes puntos de tonos orgánicos
Cuando lo tengo en mis manos
Y me cierro los ojos, te veo

Cuando estoy ocupado
Siento que algo falta
Que algo está mal
Y llego a la casa para hablar con el perro

Estoy siempre pensando en tus besos
Y como duermo abrazado contigo
Toda la noche
Como huele tu pelo y que suave tu piel

Nunca pensé de enamorarme así
Pero con cada día te amo más
Te respeto más
Me gustas más

Eres tan real, tan genuina
Eres distinta, única en el universo y te amo
Siempre te amaré

Cuídate hasta que nos vemos de nuevo
Debajo del alero del rayadito

A Valiant Effort By A Remarkable Man

We have lost our way, we have lost our identity, we have become something new and that something is ugly. That something is the modern American populace and it is ignorant and incapable of learning. We are full of ourselves for no reason whatever and our house is going to come tumbling down around us. We are losing more of our freedoms every day and most Americans deride those that speak out.

I had hopes that this man who still has the ability to see through the haze of of corporate America to a reality that is is shameful might awaken the mass of drugged Americans, semicomotose from their daily dosage of mind control. I had hopes that Ron Paul might be able to start a movement that halts our carreen towards a state that is an affront to our history and to our Christian formation.

I have never been an optimistic man. And I see no reason for optimism now. There was a flicker of light, a moment of hope, that reason might break through the haze..... 

God bless you Dr. Paul. You did your best.

Prayer Of Pope Benedict XVI at the Site of the World Trade Center

"O God of love, compassion, and healing, look on us, people of many different faiths and traditions, who gather today at this site, the scene of incredible violence and pain.
We ask you in your goodness to give eternal light and peace to all who died here - the heroic first responders: our firefighters, police officers, emergency service workers, and Port Authority personnel, along with all the innocent men and women who were victims of this tragedy simply because their work or service brought them here on September 11, 2001.
We ask you, in your compassion to bring healing to those who, because of their presence here that day, suffer from injuries and illness.
Heal, too, the pain of still-grieving families and all who lost loved ones in this tragedy. Give them strength to continue their lives with courage and hope.
We are mindful as well of those who suffered death, injury, and loss on the same day at the Pentagon and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Our hearts are one with theirs as our prayer embraces their pain and suffering.
God of peace, bring your peace to our violent world: peace in the hearts of all men and women and peace among the nations of the Earth.
Turn to your way of love those whose hearts and minds are consumed with hatred.
God of understanding, overwhelmed by the magnitude of this tragedy, we seek your light and guidance as we confront such terrible events.
Grant that those whose lives were spared may live so that the lives lost here may not have been lost in vain. Comfort and console us, strengthen us in hope, and give us the wisdom and courage to work tirelessly for a world where true peace and love reign among nations and in the hearts of all."


The Fruit Of Silence

The Fruit of Silence is Prayer
The Fruit of Prayer is Faith
The Fruit of Faith is Love
The Fruit of Love is Service
The Fruit of Service is Peace

El Fruto del Silencio es la Oración
El Fruto de la Oración es la Fe
El Fruto de la Fe es el Amor
El Fruto del Amor es el Servicio
El Fruto del Servicio es Paz

Condaleeza Rice Should Resign

Condaleeza Rice has been lying to us for four or five years. As this video shows, she has repeatedly stated that the United States does not torture.

But now it turns out as indicated by Phillip Sands in an article in Vanity Fair, that Ms. Rice was aware of this policy to torture and probably helped to draft the policy. "The Green Light"
She oversaw the White House memoranda that directed personnel at Guantánamo, in Afghanistan, at CIA secret prisons and at Abu Ghraib to torture. Those memos were detailed and called for various procedures that are specifically prohibited in the Geneva Convention.

Where Is The Danger That Warrants Using Spy Satellites On Americans?

The Washington Post and all the other big papers reported yesterday that the Department of Fatherland Security (DHS) is planning to take control of spy satelites that were developed during and soon after the Cold War to spy on our Communist adversaries. Apparently the administration is not afraid of the Russians any longer because Mr. Chertoff announced that these satellites are to be used to spy on America now.
This step is another in a series that unquestionably cross the line into totalitarian and unconstitutional usurpation of power by the executive branch of government under the misguided leadership of our idiot President.
There is a rising tide of incursions into the private lives of American citizens. It is steadily creeping into every crevice of our communications, transactions and movement. This universal movement towards governmental control of the populace takes a great deal of people doing many different things. In order for so many people in the administration to dedicate such effort to gradually erode our liberty there must be a powerful motivation that is shared by all of them. There must be a terrible fear of something that would lead so many departments to coordinate to violate our liberty.
I may be a little dull, but I cannot fathom what the motivation might be. Of course we can say that it is a scheme to turn America into Nazi Germany, or to formally hand everything over to the oligarchy, but that would require the cooperation of thousands in a nefarious plot. There are not that many truly evil people in the world. The true sociopath is quite rare. Dick Cheney undoubtedly is one and Dubya is so stupid as to believe that he is doing good things, but the rest of the people in government certainly think that they are doing the right thing.
They must believe that we are confronting a grave danger here at home. But there is nothing in recent crime statistics, or incursions by “terrorists”, or mass involvement in revolutionary movements to warrant such fear.
So what are they so afraid of? Have they twisted reality as they spin White House press releases for so long that they believe their own lies? Do they all share information that the lowly serfs out here beyond the beltway are incapable of reading without causing mass histeria?
Please help this slow learner understand what might be the fear or other motivation behind this concerted effort to enslave America.

The Wisdom of Dwight Eisenhower

"Preventive war was an invention of Hitler. Frankly, I would not even listen to anyone seriously that came and talked about such a thing."

This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence -- economic, political, even spiritual -- is felt in every city, every State house, every office of the Federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the militaryindustrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.

Dwight D. Eisenhower, President of The United States

Origins of the Federal Reserve Bank

The Fed is the bastard son of the banks that raped the Federal government as the idiot President Woodrow Wilson stood by and applauded.
It answers to Mom and Dad, but only when it wants to.
