A Tale of Two Cities 2009


It was the best of times; it was the worst of times. For there were but two cities people could hold as examples.

The first city sat perched upon a hilltop, emitting a beacon for all to see. The city was guarded by she who proclaimed: "Give me your huddled masses..." Her torch beckoned to all around the world to come and see the wondrous beauty of that city. She stood as an example of the possibility of one's dreams. Fair Lady inspired those who came to live their lives in freedom and goodwill to one another. And so they came.

The lady's lamp inspired a simple man to the call of his country. "Here I am. I will spread your message, Fair Lady." And so he did, and life was good.

The man's enemies labeled him as an ally to the "evil rich" whose taxes were cut by the Simple Man. Despite the eight years of success the Simple Man endured, he was often the subject of belittlement and derision from his enemies. Still, he continued delivering the lady's message: "Give me your huddled masses..." Her torch burned strong.

Peace seemed to follow the Simple Man. He was a gentle soul but never showed weakness to those around the world whose mission was to destroy the message of his Fair Lady. With one sentence, the Simple Man brought true change to a country with a history of mistrust of his beloved homeland and Fair Lady: "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down that wall." And so was the end of the oppression of many people.

The Simple Man fell victim to a horrible disease. Those who mocked him in success continued to degrade him in illness. He succumbed to Death, but he left a legacy that will never die. To this day, he is loved, revered, and remembered. The day will come when we can thank him in the mansion of Our Father.

Out of the second city came a young idealist. Not born of this land, he aspired to claim the same leadership position held by the Simple Man. His arrogance overrode his respect for the law. And so he dreamed of preaching "The Audacity of Hope".

The Idealist became world-wise early in life. Being moved to Indonesia at a young age, he became schooled in different cultures; cultures that sought to destroy the Simple Man's dream and the message of his Fair Lady. She trembled.

He studied the paragons of his ideals: Alinsky, Davis, Ayres. The Idealist draped their message of power and destruction around him akin to the robe of the Simple Man's Fair Lady. He studied how to obliterate political opponents who may speak the message "Give me your huddled masses...". The Fair Lady wept.

Power became the religion of the Idealist; political submission his eucharist. The Idealist used the power of the same office held by the Simple Man to pillage and plunder the huddled masses. His message of "hope and change" deceived the people into blind obedience. The Fair Lady's torch flickered.

Those who sought to bring down the city on the hilltop were placated by the Idealist. "We apologize" became his greeting to foreigners. And the huddled masses became angry.

We, the huddled masses who still believe in the Simple Man's message, have now become the angry huddled masses. Fair Lady's message will never die with us. We pass it from generation to generation; we educate, not indoctrinate. Let us do right by the Simple Man and his Fair Lady.

Oh yeah, Frank Marshall Davis...we often forget Obama's ties as we continue to move towards the red spectrum. He may have a great influnece on Obama than the other two, after all Davis preaches the end game.

I like what you have done here. You should submit to Hans and have him promote your blog as well.

It's a great message, and the influences of Obama should scare every American. Too many Americans have bought into the entitlement nation.

This was inspiring! I could envision Lady Liberty Weeping as she sees our great Country being destroyed from the inside.
Idealist is too kind a gentle a word for this pretender and anarchrist. Evilist is more appropo.

I know Ronnie is turning over in his grave. One is almost glad Dutch is not alive to see what has become of his wonderful land. But the ANGRY huddled masses will stand up and defend our Fair Lady Liberty, and the Memory of the Greatest American President, Ronald Regan, Tear Down that Wall (that you hide behind b hussein.)

blackandgoldfan said...

That's no wall BHO is hiding behind, bunni...That's MObama's fat booty!

I think the thing that's most cool: My husband and my younger son share Dutch's birthday. I only buy presents for two...the hubby goes without. :-D

Amusing Bunni said...

Hee Hee, good one! in that case, ship out that wall, to kenya.

It's a great co-inky-dink that your loved ones share The Gipper's B-Day! And hubby and son on same day too! How did you manage to arrange that. I know you are awesome!

BTW, I will keep praying for your brave friends.
I noticed the "Daily Bible Verse" today on my Blog is a very good one! I like to see it change each day, and todays is a real word from the Lord for all of us! I'm off to see HP!
Enjoy the day!

blackandgoldfan said...

Bunni: I think having my son on the hubby's and Dutch's birthday was God's way of saying "Well, two out of three ain't bad!" hee hee

Thanks for prayers! I'll have to check out the daily Bible verse!

Ramblings From a Young American said...

Brilliant!

Everyone needs a post to talk about what their blog is, how carefullly written and superbly crafted it can become.

This is it, when people ask about your blog I'll just point to this: "see this, this is why you need to follow it." The whole thing, needs more exposure. Just, post it everywhere.

Young American: It's up at westernfrontamerica.com. Lots of exposure.
