SUNDAY IS FOR POETRY: For Peace




For peace,


should we,

the citizens of the world,

demand our Heads of State,

meditate?

Isn't this the worst bunch of lulus ever??I heard a program this morning that said all individuals are having to bankrupt and restructure. why didn't those companies that got the money?. I kn0w why lots of Obama friends especially Freddy and Fanny Mac. John Q Public is not so dumb lovely poem though sorry for the rant. I just never thought I'd live to see such awful presidents one right after another .

LOL K.! It's a thought! :))

Great idea!

LOL, ML's! I wonder how different the world would be if they chilled, rather than worried about their millions!

Maybe it's time to change the electoral system. Cap what a canditate can spend. Make it so not only the rich and very connected can play that game, but instead every average joe.

Connected...explains the bail-outs to the other ultra rich, doesn't it?

There's a lot of very honest average Joes out there who'd get my vote.

I'd bet they'd even bring a conscience and meditate for peace

Now there's an idea! It might make them think a little more, huh? LOL!

Wholeheartedly agree, PV! The cap idea isn't novel, and has been tried, but the status quo want to leave it as is, because, of course, it's in their favor!

LOL PV, they're so connected, their
infrastructure needs no constitution. That's the scary part! They make up the rules as they go along!

No pun intended, eh, Jay! LOL
