This is America

Submitted by Damaris Ann on Wed, 02/06/2019 - 06:04

This is America.

The land of diversity and freedom and change.

Change is good, but we’re seeing too much change. We’re seeing the kind of change that tears us down; eliminating the beautiful and weak in its wake.

The New York Capitol is a beautiful building, but its foundation was built on sand.

No, this is not a post of random musings.

We recently saw New York legalize abortion up to nine months as well as during delivery. People around me are applauding this new law, but I’m sick.

I’m sick and angry. Heartbroken, too.

Millennial Downfall

Submitted by Damaris Ann on Sun, 03/25/2018 - 05:18

This sand in our hands
Is slipping away
Our time for tomorrow
Taken up by today
The millennial downfall
Is our pride and false wisdom
Our obsession with highs
And our lack of true love
Productivity stems from caffeine
Willpower forgotten
Smitten with celebrities
Elevating internet fame
We see the world through a lens
Not knowing how to go get it
Conquered by lack of likes
We fall, defeated
Crushed by self-loathing
In comparison to others
We fall short in our eyes

Theism in America--Past and Present

Submitted by Sarah Liz on Sat, 02/20/2016 - 16:34

Theism had a critical influence on America’s development of law, government, and culture. America’s beginnings, under the King George III’s heavy hand of tyranny, gave birth to patriots who worked hard, sacrificed much, and held liberty dear. They valued a form of government that fit with this mindset. This form of government and culture was, as John Adams said, “made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other.”

Abortion, Christianity, and William Wilberforce

Hi All! I am a blogger and writer. I am also a homeschool graduate, college graduate (as of May 2016), sister, and daughter. This is one of my recent blog posts. Hope you all enjoy!

--Abortion, Christianity, and William Wilberforce--

You’re probably thinking…”What in the world do all these random things have in common? Oh, okay, well I can see the connection with abortion and Christianity. Okay, and the mess we’re in, obviously. But what about that random guy Wilberforce? Don’t I remember that name from my 10th grade history class?”

Land of the Free

*a/n* Let me preface this by saying that I am a proud citizen of the United States of America. However, this has been bothering me for a while. I know that some people on here will disagree with certain aspects of this essay, and that's fine! I mean no disrespect. I'm simply trying to put a few things that I have gathered from some fairly recent experiences into perspective. Just to caution you, this has a lot of older themes such as racism and general discrimination.

The Truth About Mormonism (Part 1): Introduction to the Standard Works of the Church

Submitted by Benjamin on Sun, 10/28/2012 - 23:54

In the United States’ upcoming presidential election, we are faced with two candidates from the two major opposing parties: democrat and republican. The democrat candidate we know and are familiar with: Barrack Obama, our president for the past four years. But what of the republican candidate, Mitt Romney? Who is he? What does he believe? If you are like the majority of Americans, you probably don’t have a clue. Whether by intent or otherwise, Mitt Romney has successfully kept secret what he truly believes, when it comes to the realm of politics, from most Americans.

The Utter Folly of Class Warfare (Part 1)

Submitted by James on Tue, 04/20/2010 - 09:50

We hear it all the time.  It’s about the only thing that a majority of “main-stream” Americans and the political elitists agree on.  The middle class pays too much in taxes, but the rich don’t pay enough.  “Tax the rich!” they cry.  “Make them pay their fair share!”

Too many of us buy into this lie.  I hope that if you are among them, that you will consider my argument and rethink your position.  Here is a fundamental principle of life:

You cannot help the wage earner by tearing down the wage payer.

Obama's Taxes and Their Originators

Submitted by The Brit on Sat, 09/26/2009 - 20:12

 Robin Hood and John the Prince
Agreed to have a meeting
All seemed to be going well, since
They met with bowing greeting

"Rob," said John, "if we were wise,
Which is a small requirement,
We could pool each day to work
And help save the envirement.

"And if we were the wiser still,
We'd merge our two great forces.
I for rich, and you for poor,
And lawyers for the horses.

"You can steal, and I can tax,
And promise equal wealth,
And promises could flow like rain,
About a global health."

Independence Day

Fire in the sky—a celestial rain of colors bursts
Shooting into space from a mountain of faces.
The stars do not know the reason of bombardment
Is the signing of a piece of paper by fifty-six men who
Long ago pushed up daisies fighting a war
Between a mother and her rebellious child across the ocean.
