It is unconstitutional when, because someone has deep pockets, that they control us all. In Russia there are the Oligarchs and in America we have the TechnoGeeks. We still have the power to put an end to usurption of our free will. Perhaps we should return to the "Victory Garden" approach and meet our own needs and stop putting more power in the pockets of technology. I would hate to lose Amazon, Facebook and Twitter, but if they continue to cast themselves as our masters, then perhaps we should go back to pen and ink and postage stamps. What's in my wallet or safe should not be the measuring stick as a man. I was raised by parents who didn't have what my living environment indicated that they did have. I never gave much thought to how all that good food got on my table. We WOULD have gone hungry had not my mother and dad had good neighbors with gardens. It is time we cease worshipping "Where- With-All" and returned to honoring with total devotion, the source of the whole thing. God IS still in charge. MulitMillionaires best realize that if HE cashed in, we would all be paupers. I know a man who has amassed great wealth over the past years. He has a bank that is the most beautiful I've ever seen. You would think it housed a King, but he is wise enough to give credit for all his success to the one who gave us life. If more of our "Fat Cats" would humble themselves before the Lord, "What a Wonderful World It WOULD Be! Just remember the technogeeks may think they are totally in charge, but their very creation is too big to prevent us 'users' power to Use It!
This is a good reminder for all human intelligence to internalize, "For the word of the Lord is right and true; he is faithful in all he does. The Lord loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love. That's a good one, world, it's from Psalm.
And that's what I get from My Box of Chocolates right here in my corner studio under the shadow of Kyle Field.
