Anonymous recently shared a video in March of 2012 that was directed at President Obama. Basically, they’re saying that he’s too focused right now on his political campaign to worry about what’s going on in America at the moment. I for one agree.
Police are using unnecessary force, Riots are breaking out and preventing people from working, and People are losing jobs left and right…..still.
America needs to wake up and wake up fast. Because right now, we’re in a spiral downfall with no net. I’m not saying that Obama is the sole cause of this, but he’s a big player in it. We need to start voting for people that stick to traditional methods, methods that work, like Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul.
America is getting dumber, and poorer every day. We’re becoming a welfare state, headed in the same direction that Greece is at now. It’s because we have too many people working for the Government and too many people on welfare, etc that shouldn’t be. They’re doing this deliberately, so that way we’ll become a third world country. Why? So we’ll be easier to control.
Those who have money have the power to travel, see the world and do what they want. We can’t do that if we’re poor right? We need to start protecting our rights and our freedoms. What little of them we have left. Because if the government isn’t careful, there will be a Revolution, just like what Anonymous said.
Get ready, because change is coming and it’s coming fast. So I ask you America, how do you like your Change now?
Obama’s Theme Song…..
Well, it’s probably storming all over the place right now. Although, we actually had a decent rain today. So decent, that the yard flooded.
Did you know that you can count the distance between a lightning strike and the thunder? If you count one one thousand, two one thousand, three one thousand, and wait until the thunder gets here. Each count is considered to be a mile. So, if you get to seven one thousand, it’s about 7 miles away as a rule of thumb.
Dance In The Rain
I dance in the rain with thee.
For your mind and soul set me free.
Laughter and love on this night.
Together, we will not be fright.
Standing against the storm.
This is how love does form.
I cherish this moment for all time.
And hope I never turn into a lime.
For when that happens, all is lost.
Love is always the last to be tossed.
I will always remember you.
Even if it means, that I’ll turn blue.
Despite the fact, we’re worlds apart.
Only you can have my heart.
Changing Winds Prevail
The world around me is narrow and thin.
This is not something, I can easily win.
Chaos and the hectic abound in this wood.
Though I look around and see much good.
People are skeptic and thus they can’t see.
The world around them is already free.
From the lies and turmoil of their lives.
The passion and love, that’s what drives.
For they know the secret, from within.
That the thoughts have always been.
They strive for all they’ve done.
All you can think of is a pun.
Open your eyes, so you can see.
Change always starts within thee.
Here are a few fun facts about Coffee. Sense I’m getting into the Coffee business, I figured, why not learn more and more about Coffee. Why not? Here are some fun facts to enjoy.
Coffee was originally eaten. African tribes mixed Coffee Berries with fat, which in turn made edible energy balls.
All Coffee in the world is grown in what’s known as the “Bean Belt.” It stretches between the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. Hawaii is the only state in the US that grows this remarkable bean.
In 1675, the King of England banned Coffee Houses, claiming that they were places where people met to conspire against him.
70% of the world consumes Arabica Coffee, which is a mild and aromatic Coffee. The other 30% of Coffee drinkers, drink Robusta, which is more bitter, but has half again (50% more) as much caffeine.
Coffee grows on Trees, which can grow up to 30 feet tall. Farmers find them difficult to harvest though at that height, instead, they cultivate the Trees to grow at around 10 feet instead.
The Bean is actually a Seed inside a bright red berry.
Coffee is the second most traded Commodity in the world. Second only to Oil.
It’s also the most drank liquid on the planet. Second only to water.
There you have it. Some fun facts about Coffee. Maybe there is something in there that you didn’t know? What’s your favorite kind of Coffee? Do you like it straight or do you perhaps like a Cappuccino style?
Have you ever sat there on the sidelines and just watched something happen? Perhaps you’re watching it for enjoyment, or perhaps you’re watching it to learn something? Either way, many people have sat on the sidelines of life and just watched. But, most of the time it’s for a short period of time. What happens when someone has the time to sit there for years and just watch life pass them by?
That was me for the longest time, I just sat there and watched life pass me by. I’m sure you’ve heard the saying “Just One More vs Tomorrow?” I was the Tomorrow guy, always made sure that I had other things to do. My interest kept me busy, and these interest ranged from: Video Games, Culture, Food, Technology, Music, Youtube. Yep, I wasted away a lot of time on the web. Heck, I still do, but at least this time, I’m moving towards a goal.
Social media has had an impact in my life like nothing else has. Sharing my poetry and my blog post with others has giving me something to look forward to. When you have people adding you to their list of favorite poets, there is something there. It means that you have a way with words. I’ve been told that I have the greatest ability to say so much with so little. In fact, easy/simple poetry is often some times the hardest to write, because you’re trying to find the right word to fit in the equation.
My best poems though always come out right then and there. No time wasted writing, no time wasted thinking. It’s just there in a matter of a few minutes or less. Some say that’s a gift with words, others say it’s a gift of thought. Perhaps my imagination is much more than it seems.
When you’ve been sitting on the sidelines for a while, you have time to think, you have time to reflect. How much time do you have to do that in any given day? This down time, has given rise to many thoughts and ideas. While some of them are farfetched, others are golden gems ready to be plucked. Perhaps it’s time for us to set aside time, for time’s sake?
Poets and Writers aren’t smart because we were born smart. It’s because we’ve had the time to muse and think about things no one has dared to think about. All throughout my life, I’ve had very few friends. I could count all my friends at any given time, on my right hand alone. In fact, right now in life, I really only have one proper friend and that’s my cousin. I think it’s about time I changed that.
The world is a big place, lots of things to see and do. There are people to meet and food to taste. If there is one thing I’ve learned through Social Media and Empire Avenue, it’s that you have to be a “Just One More” kind of person to get ahead. I choose to be that One More. Just tonight, I was debating with a friend whether or not I should create a community forum. With her encouraging me too be that Just One More, I created that Forum tonight. It’s not public yet because I have a few things to add to it, but it’s there.
Now, there’s just one more thing I have to do tonight before I log. I’ve got to at least add one new video to my Youtube channel. You can find my Youtube channel below. Perhaps together we can all be that “Just One More” person that we all should be.
Many people assume that they have “Nothing to Lose and Nothing to Gain.” In fact, You have “Everything to Lose and Everything to Gain.” When you stop being you, you stop seeing with your eyes. When you sit on the sidelines, you learn to see again. When you stop procrastinating, you become someone you never thought you would. Join me today and Start Living.
This is just a quick post to wish you all a Happy New Year.
New Years Resolutions are being made or have been made. I’d rather not make New Years Resolutions. Why? Simple really, most of the time we don’t keep them anyway.
What’s my plan? To set some goals throughout the year and take action. Rather than make a Resolution that I’m not likely to do anyway, I’ll just plan out my yearly goals and work towards them.
For those of you who haven’t seen it yet, here is my 2012 New Years Resolution List made by Gaye Crispin. It’s in reference to the image below.
The world likes to bust a move.
Yet I always get stuck in a groove.
Seems like I always need a hand.
Maybe I should do something grand.
Moving from one project to the next.
Wishing I could just send a text.
It’s now or never they say.
But alas, I just put in on a tray.
Perhaps tomorrow, I’ll make better time.
Maybe I won’t be such a mime.
You live and learn, this much is true.
One day, I won’t be so blue.
