From: Donuel

The history of the United States of America has been discovered after centuries of cover-ups and leftist conspiracies to indoctrinate our citizens with fictitious facts, Finally, freedom, faith, and the American family will be taught in an unbiased format. We wish to thank our treasured historians Donald J. Trump, Jim Jordan, Marjorie Taylor
Greene and hundreds of contributors from the Heritage Foundation for their research.

[This is the official and complete history of the USA by the Republican National Committee and not the abridged alternative social truth targets of our respected and esteemed colleagues like The Proud Boys and QAnon.]

In 1492 Columbo sailed the Ocean blue with his destination set on an alternative route to India. To his surprise, he arrived in Haiti where he fought off Small Pox and the savages. By the time this news reached England, some very pure people from Plymouth believed their promised land for religious freedom would be found in the new world. They moved with Mayflower to move to America. To their delight, they arrived at Plymouth rock. The pure people aka Puritans invited some natives to their housewarming party that today we call Thanksgiving, The fathers of America were born soon after the Renaissance which in Latin means Born Again Christians, not to be confused with toxic wokeness.
Americans wanted freedom from the King of Britain. Likewise the King of France faced headaches to come from Antifa rebels in his own country. Philosophers of the day like Rousseau wrote "Man is free but is everywhere in chains". He dreamt of a world where man was master of his own destiny and government. It was the same dream that was tempting European immigrants to come to America in droves and boats. It turns out that building a new world was back-breaking work, so they invited people from Africa and made them do the work instead. You might think these were the same people Rousseau was talking about when he said mankind should throw off its chains but they weren't.
Like many humanists, he found a clever loophole by calling blacks only 3/5ths human, or only human from the neck down.
When Britain tried to tax America, the citizens cleverly dressed up like Indians and turned Boston Harbor into the biggest cup of tea in the world. Then George Washington crossed the Delaware and defeated the British. in 1776 the founding fathers drafted the best dear John letter in history and established their independence. A list of suggestions was later called the Constitution. United we stood until the Civil War when the North ruthlessly attacked the South. After we invented the light bulb, radio and sliced bread, a negotiated settlement was made and American capitalism and inventions spread planes, trains and automobiles across the country. We also put and end to WW1 and WW2 rebuilt Europe, opened China and chased Russia out of Cuba. Republicans have brought prosperity to America with only a couple of exceptions. They put an end to the Lifetime Presidency of FDR and some say they put a man on the moon.
   If it had not been for rigged elections the great President in history would still be in power.

I found an ice cycle spiral down from a branch above the stream
I know not why or how it formed any more than I know why I dream.

It was joke about blood sugar affecting memory. It was stressful going without insulin but it was not that bad. Most diabetics can go 2 years without insulin before they die.

In fact I recently attributed Amos for addressing the subject of consciousness but that thread got closed when Steve got pissed off.

..Mom why is my sister such a smartie pants?
Well dear, On the sixth day God put Adam into a coma and took his rib bone marrow out to fashion woman...already exhausted from all that creating he really needed a break and on the seventh day he rested. He never created again except for disasters and floods. Able asked God "could you clear up some of your mistakes like the platypus and other things like woman being smarter..." That was the last we ever heard from Able. When Eve hungrily ate from the tree of knowledge she became vastly smarter than Adam who never read or asked for directions. Mom said "Thats why girls are smarter than boys". Timmy said I never knew that. Mom said "Exactly"

RACIAL AND RELIGIOUS intolerance has grown to 85% of Americans harboring a hatred trope of some kind and a 35% rise in violent acts. With or without Trump the white evangelical churches are going full throttle anti Semitic. I will remind them that Jesus Christ was killed as a Jewish person of color agitating against the corporate dictatorship of Rome.
Even if you are an evangelical WASP I remind you that you have skin in the game and will have to choose between Proud Boys authority or Federal forces guided by the Constitution.
As America will be shaped by the changing electorate, the new minority can not rely on obstructionism or eliminating voting fairness forever.
If you feel raw about this I suggest you start learning Russian.

25 years ago you had to belong to a large secret committee subject to black balling and investigation but it devolved into a place for whoppers' outrage and artful submissions. As the mother of all BS she is often referred to as MOM who cares for the kids with fairness and compassion.

You’ll be happy, even if it’s a rough road
It will fade away, everything will be fine
Let’s laugh and hold hands and hang in there
You will be happy, all the painful wounds
Forget and erase everything
Someday, spring will come

At the end of a day that repeats every day
Hoping for a better tomorrow comes
I hope I can make you smile

A sing-along...Everybody out there at work or home Lets sing along;

Why are there so many, songs about mem'ries
and whats on the other side
mem'ries are visions but only illusions
and mem'ries have nothing to hide,
so we've been told and some choose to believe it,
I know that their wrong wait and see
someday you'll find it the mem'rie connection
the lovers the screamers and me.
all of us under its spells
we know that its probably tragic...

Have you been half asleep?
and have you heard voices
You've heard them calling your name
Is this the sweet sound?
that calls the old seniors
the voice might be one and the same
I've heard it too many times to ignore it
Its something that might come to be
someday day you'll find it
the right diagnosis
End stage Alzheimers to be

When it came time to consider his Congressional Medal of Honor for single handedly taking out a german tank and leading from the front killing 100 germans wounding 131 and capturing 200 he was denied because his company had NO CAUALTIES.

As a kid when the doorbell rang we smiled and cheered "it's company".
Now when there is a knock we say "who the fuck is that" to our dismay
As a kid, we saw at the carnival the big and fat tattooed man or lady.
Now almost everyone at the Mall or Wall Mart looks fat tattooed and lazy.
As a kid Getty was dead but there were still Vanderbilts and Rockefeller.

was on the fourteenth day of January,
From England we set sail,
We were bound down to Laguire,
With a sweet and pleasant gale;
The Roving Lizzie we are called,
Bold Donuel is my name,
And we sailed away from Laguire,
Just out of the Spanish Main.

And when we reached Laguire,
Our orders did read so,
“When you discharge your cargo,
It’s sail for Callao,”
Our Captain called all hands right aft,
And unto us did say,
“Here is money for you today, my lads,
For tomorrow we’ll sail away.”

It was early the next morning,
As daylight did draw nigh,
The man from at the masthead
A strange sail did espy;
With a black flag under her mizzen peak,
Came bearing down that way;
“I’ll be bound she is some pirate,”
Bold Donuel he did say.

In the course of three or four hours,
This pirate ranged alongside,
And with a speaking trumpet,
“Where are you from?” he cries.
“The Roving Lizzie we are called,
Bold Donuel is my name,
And we sailed away from Laguire,
Just out of the Spanish Main.”

“Come, back your topsails to your mast,
And heave your ship under my lee.”
“Oh, no! oh, no!” cried Donuel,
I’d rather sink at sea.”
They hoisted up their bloody flag,
Our hearts to terrify.
With their big guns to our small arms,
At us they did let fly.

We mounted four six-pounders
To fight a hundred men,
And when the action did begin,
It was just about half-past ten;
We mounted four six-pounders,
Our crew being twenty-two;
In the course of an hour and a quarter,
Those pirates we did subdue.

And now our prize we’ve taken
Unto Columbia’s shore,
To that dear old place in America,
They call sweet Baltimore;
We’ll drink success to Donuel,
Likewise his gallant crew,
That fought and beat that Pirate
With his noble twenty-two.
