The Night they drove the wublogs down'

By: Patrap , 5:52 AM GMT on October 04, 2016


Patrap P' is the name
And I served on the wunderblog train
'Till IBM's's cavalry came
And tore up the blogs again

In the winter of '17
We were the blogs, just barely alive
By March the 10th, the main blog had fell
It's a time I remember, oh so well

The night they drove the wunderblogs down
And the bells were ringing
The night they drove the wunderblogs down
And the people were singing
They went, "Na, na, la, na, na, na"

Back with my wife in New Orleans
When one day she called to me
Said "Patrick, quick, come see,
There goes the Dr. from wu you see!"

Now, I don't mind blogging wood
And I don't care if the comment's no good
You take what you need
And you leave the rest
But they should never
Have taken the very best

The night they drove the wunderblogs down
And the bells were ringing
The night they drove the wunderblogs down
And all the people were singing
They went, "Na, na, la, na, na, na"

Text: Unfit leaders create stagnation. They gained control by pleasing those who once held office. The masses follow like sheep, unquestioning of the law made by those in higher positions. For every action there is a reaction. The wise man stands alone, unafraid to let his beliefs be known."

Thunder repeated: the image of SHOCK.
Thus in fear and trembling
The superior man sets his life in order
And examines himself.

The shock of continuing thunder brings fear and trembling. The superior man is always filled with reverence at the manifestation of God; he sets his life in order and searches his heart, lest it harbour any secret opposition to the will of God. Thus reverence is the foundation of true culture.


1. The priest and the people together recall the mystery of the death and resurrection of Christ, which is made present in all its saving power, while they look forward to the second coming of Christ, for which this mystery prepares them.
The spoon and chalice are lifted up and placed on the left side of the Thronos (Altar).
The priest lifts them over head in his right hand quickly, signifying the second coming of the Lord on the last day, which will be like a flash of lightning.

“For just as lightning comes from the east and flashes even to the west, so shall the coming of the Son of Man be”
(Matthew 24:27).

--That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. --

The count here is now 6...with Clara the female still looking for a new Home...and Momma Nola Roux is scheduled for her spay Vet visit March 15th.

Toulouse, Martha Jo and Sweet pea all fine.

And Samantha's Border Collie, is Irma Jo'.

She has been a wunderful Stepmom to the Puppies as She really Loves corralling them and being a good Aunt.


My Father brought Home my first German Shepherd Xmas Eve 1967 just before my 8th B-day.

He Lived until right before my High School Graduation in 78' or 11 years.

I would not own another until after Teresa's 18 wheeler accident May of 89'. AKC General Phoenix Pearson

Phoenix would sire many litters thru the years, and was Sire to Nova who was at my side for Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

She passed Dec 2008. She remains the only Canine Honored for her post Katrina storm SAR werk who was not a trained SAR canine.

She was Buried with Full Honors as well


Nova Von Snowcloud, Krewe of Barkus, Mardi Gras 2006.


So we close our last litter soon when Clara leaves us for a new Home.

The memories are for a lifetime, and more.

All of our Love to every one of them, this night and in our thoughts and prayers forever.

These verses are spoken by Krishna:

Blind are the eyes
Which deem th' Unmanifested manifest,
Not comprehending Me in my true Self!
Imperishable, viewless, undeclared,
Hidden behind my magic veil of shows,
I am not seen by all; I am not known-
Unborn and changeless- to the idle world.
But I, Arjuna! know all things which were,
And all which are, and all which are to be,
Albeit not one among them knoweth Me!
By passion for the "pairs of opposites,"
By those twain snares of Like and Dislike, Prince!
All creatures live bewildered, save some few
Who, quit of sins, holy in act, informed,
Freed from the "opposites," and fixed in faith,
Cleave unto Me.
Who cleave, who seek in Me
Refuge from birth and death, those have the Truth!
Those know Me BRAHMA: know Me Soul of Souls,
The ADHYATMAN: know KARMA, my work;
Know I am ADHIBHUTA, Lord of Life,
And ADHIDAIVA, Lord of all the Gods,
And ADHIYAJNA, Lord of Sacrifice;
Worship Me well, with hearts of love and faith,
And find and hold me in the hour of death.

I used to read "Readers' Digest" as a kid and they presented this bit in the "Humour in Uniform" section:
"Back in WWII, US fighter squadron pilots would often fly under radio silence. But things get lonely up there in the cockpit, so after a while there'd be a crackle of static as someone keyed his mike. Then a disembodied voice would reply, "Who dat?" An answer would come, "Who dat say who dat?" And another, "Who dat say who dat when ah say who dat?" After a few rounds of this, the squadron commander would grab his microphone and yell, "Cut it out, you guys!" A few moments of silence. Then... "Who dat?" -From Wiki

This is where I stand. Period. THIS!❤
I make no apologies to any or all of my FB/wunderground friends for this. I know some of you are tired of political postings and rants. But apart from the cutesy posts of recipes, flowers, seashells, balloons, and drama, FB is a vehicle to express my outrage of how far my country has fallen on the humanity scale. To me it is a useful vehicle for my activism. That fevered ego in the White House and all of his power hungry cronies and the majority of the Republicans in congress are a threat to me and my way of life, and unless you are worth tens of billions of dollars, you, too. So I will #RESIST and I will be part of the resistance (and proud of it). As I have said before, if you can join in or hang with it fine. If not then you probably need to unfriend me now. I won't play nice. Our country's well-being demands it.
Some people are saying that we should give Donald Trump a chance, that we should "work together" with him because he won the election and he is everyone's president.
This is my response:
•I will not forget how badly he and so many others treated former President Barack Obama for 8 years...
•I will not "work together" to build a wall.
•I will not "work together" to persecute Muslims.
•I will not "work together" to shut out refugees from countries where we destabilized their governments, no matter how bad they might have been, so that we could have something more agreeable to our oligarchy.
•I will not "work together" to lower taxes on the 1%.
•I will not "work together" to increase taxes on the middle class and poor.
•I will not "work together" to help him line the pockets of himself and his cronies.
•I will not "work together" to weaken (or demolish) environmental protection.
•I will not "work together" to sell American lands to companies which then despoil those lands.
•I will not "work together" to remove civil rights from anyone.
•I will not "work together" to waste trillions more on our military when we already have the strongest in the world.
•I will not "work together" to alienate countries that have been our allies for as long as I have been alive.
•I will not "work together" to slash funding for education.
•I will not "work together" to take basic assistance from people who are at the bottom of the socioeconomic ladder.
•I will not "work together" to allow torture and "black op" prison sites.
•I will not "work together" to "take their oil."
•I will not "work together" to get rid of common sense regulations on guns.
•I will not "work together" to eliminate the minimum wage.
•I will not "work together" to suppress scientific research, be it on climate change, fracking, or any other issue where a majority of scientists agree that Trump and his supporters are wrong on the facts.
•I will not "work together" to criminalize abortion or restrict health care for women.
•I will not "work together" to increase the number of nations that have nuclear weapons.
•I will not "work together" to put even more "big money" into politics.
•I will not "work together" to violate the Geneva Convention.
•I will not "work together" to give the Ku Klux Klan, the Nazi Party and white supremacists a seat at the table, or to normalize their hatred.
•I will not "work together" to deny health care to people who need it.
•I will not "work together" to increase the profits of the insurance companies.
•I will not "work together" to deny medical coverage to people on the basis of an alleged or actual "pre-existing condition."
•I will not "work together" to increase voter suppression.
•I will not "work together" to normalize tyranny.
•I will not "work together" with anyone who is, or admires, tyrants and dictators.
•I will not "work together" with Donald Trump or anyone who supports him, because I will not allow one man to feed upon the fears of the populace, blaming minorities for their condition or their inability to thrive.
•I will use my voice and my hands, to reach out to the uninformed, and anyone else who'll LISTEN. About Donald Trump, his friends and the Big Lie:
That "winning", "being great again", "rich" or even "beautiful" is nothing... if no one else is around.
PS: If you agree, please copy and re-post (I understand that results in larger numbers of people seeing a post), and if you can, sign your name below mine. Also, if I have left anything out, feel free to add it to this list.
This is the first step in becoming part of The Resistance.

Quoting 133. no1der:

How to Make America Great Again: Rachel Carson on Protecting Nature and Heeding Science as a Force of Democracy

"For many years public-spirited citizens throughout the country have been working for the conservation of the natural resources, realizing their vital importance to the Nation. Apparently their hard-won progress is to be wiped out, as a politically minded Administration returns us to the dark ages of unrestrained exploitation and destruction." (1954)





No. They will not. As too much has been lost to them since 1980.

The line stops here.

As #DAPL proved, Veterans are the wall in front of the voice less heard. We will protect the water, the Earth, the Air.


The paranoia is in bloom, the P-R
Transmissions will resume
They'll try to push drugs
That keep us all dumbed down and hope that
We will never see the truth around
(So come on)

Another promise, another scene,
Another package lie to keep us trapped in greed
With all the green belts wrapped around our minds
And endless red tape to keep the truth confined
(So come on)

They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious
(So come on)

Interchanging mind control
Come let the revolution take its toll if you could
Flick a switch and open your third eye, you'd see that
We should never be afraid to die
(So come on)

Rise up and take the power back, it's time that
The fat cats had a heart attack, you know that
Their time is coming to an end
We have to unify and watch our flag ascend
(So come on)

They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious
(So come on)

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey

They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious

That moment as President when you discover that part about Checks and Balances most of us learned in 8th Grade.

Leaving aside the part where the President of the United States, the actual goddamned PRESIDENT, is sitting on the shitter at 5 in the morning petulantly complaining to the internet about the New York Times and people being mean to him and the fact that the job is WAY more complicated than he imagined (so tough in fact that he needed a vacation less than two weeks into it), leaving all that aside, there's this:

"The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned!"

"The opinion of..."

That opinion is a legal decision in accordance with the Constitution. That's how our government is supposed to work.

"...of this so-called judge..."

There's nothing so-called about it. James Robart is a US District Judge, a conservative appointed by George W. Bush in accordance with the Constitution and approved by the Senate. Now either Trump believes in the US Constitution and the US process of government or he doesn't. It's just that goddamned simple. Federal Judges ruled against President Obama any number of times (it happens to all presidents), you didn't see Barack on the shitter at 5AM tweeting "IT'S SO UNFAIR! UNFAIR!" like a fucking child.

But here's the part which really matters:

"...which essentially takes law enforcement away from our country..."

What?

WHAT?

HOW does this judgement take law enforcement away from our country?

How? Be specific and show your work.

The press should grab onto this line, this one right here "essentially takes law enforcement away from our country," and hold on like a pitbull. FORCE the President to answer that question. HOW? Prove it. Spell it out. Either prove your statement or admit to the world that you're just having a tantrum because you didn't get your way.

As conservatives were so very fond of pointing out over and over and over and over and over again for the last 8 years, this ain't a dictatorship. The President can't just wave his tiny orange hand and the rest of us have to jump around like trained dogs.

But that's what Trump actually thinks. And he thinks that because nobody has EVER told him no -- not even when he jammed his hand into their crotch. He's a rich spoiled child who has NEVER been told no. Every statement he makes shows his utter ignorance of how things work in the real world -- something he never had to learn when sheltered inside his golden palace surrounded by toadies and yesmen and fawning servants.

This is why it's important to listen to this guy and not just ignore his social media rantings.

And the press needs to get off their collective a**es and start holding this a**hole's delicate little feet to the fire.

Re: 36 - lost in all this madness is Putin, Russian involvement in our election process, and Trump and his advisers' involvement with Putin and his people.

Not to mention the continuing failure to release tax returns, the failure to provide evidence that he has truly removed himself from his business interests, and that the Trump team repeatedly lied about a non-existent IRS audit that was the so-called reason for the delay in releasing said returns.

What say you...'high crimes and misdemeanors'?
