WHEN I AM AMONG TREES by Mary Oliver

When I am among the trees,
especially the willows and the honey locust,
equally the beech, the oaks, and the pines,
they give off such hints of gladness.

I would almost say that they save me, and daily.
I am so distant from the hope of myself,
in which I have goodness, and discernment,
and never hurry through the world
but walk slowly, and bow often.
Around me the trees stir in their leaves
and call out, “Stay awhile.”

The light flows from their branches.
And they call again, “It’s simple,”
they say, “and you, too, have come
into the world to do this, to go easy,
to be filled with light, and to shine.”

"Man, once surrendering his reason, has no remaining guard against absurdities the most monstrous, and like a ship without rudder, is the sport of every wind. With such persons, gullibility, which they call faith, takes the helm from the hand of reason and the mind becomes a wreck." —Thomas Jefferson (1822)

Wrap your powdered wig brain pan around this one Cwiggy. Benjamin Franklin called impeachment a substitute for assassination.

“Docr. Franklin was for retaining the clause as favorable to the executive,” say James Madison’s notes from that day. “History furnishes one example only of a Magistrate being formally brought to public Justice. Every body cried out agst this as unconstitutional.

“What was the practice before this in cases where the chief Magistrate rendered himself obnoxious?” said Franklin. “Why recourse was had to assassination in wch. He was not only deprived of his life but of the opportunity of vindicating his character.

“It wd. be the best way therefore,” said Franklin, “to provide the Constitution for the regular punishment of the Executive when his misconduct should deserve it, and for his honorable acquittal when he should be unjustly accused.”

-The paragraph above is James Madison's summary of what Benjamin Franklin said about the impeachment power at the Constitutional Convention on July 20, 1787.

"When Men are employ'd they are best contented. For on the Days they work'd they were good-natur'd and chearful; and with the consciousness of having done a good Days work they spent the Evenings jollily; but on the idle Days they were mutinous and quarrelsome, finding fault with their Pork, the Bread, and in continual ill-humour." —Benjamin Franklin (1771)

"A stain” on America’s honor.

"Just spoke to Sen. Chris VanHollen about situation in Syria.
We will introduce bipartisan sanctions against Turkey if they invade Syria and will call for their suspension from NATO if they attack Kurdish forces who assisted the U.S. in the destruction of the ISIS Caliphate."

“It is high time that we stop thinking politically as Republicans and Democrats about elections and started thinking patriotically as Americans about national security based on individual freedom. I don’t want to see the Republican party ride to political victory on the four horsemen of calumny: fear, ignorance, bigotry, smear.”
