One Nation

That how you do it.

Shiny Objects

I’m terrified. Absolutely terrified.

I’ve been wrestling with these thoughts and emotions for awhile, trying to make sense of it all, but I can’t. There is no sense in it. It feels like America is dying, which hurts me to the core because I love this country, but I can’t even express what I see wrong with the nation between I’ll be met with “if you don’t like it, you can GET OUT!” Since when did pointing out flaws in a system equate to hatred of the system? That’s like a mother hating her child for having a runny nose.

But that’s just part of it; this rabid nationalism disguised as patriotism is scary in so many ways. The very ground veterans walk upon is worshiped, but the man responsible for this new type of American psychosis signs bills taking away their benefits, AND NO ONE CARES. It’s one thing…

Do Good

It sounds stupid, but repetition wears down mental roadblocks similar to how water smooths jagged stones. The more you intend to do; the more you may find yourself doing (or being deluded.)

Focused persistence is the ultimate changing force.

It’s simple” he says. “Do good” he says. 

Tony’s Bologna marketing strategy is simple.  It’s based off of providing unique, original content and writing articles that have useful advice.  100% of what I post is either because I personally think it’s funny or I think it’s interesting. I’m willing to bet a few of you might agree.

I’ve decided to do more. 

One of my biggest motivations in life is helping people.  It’s only when I’ve gone out of my way to help someone, I have found the act to truly make me happy. That being said,  I’m a real big fan of random acts of kindness and  positively influencing life.

When you have the opportunity to positively influence life, seize it.  I have been fortunate enough to build an engaging (and dare I say awesome) community, thus I have decided to use this post to recommend…

The obscure word of the week is tournedos

Tuska- ; Tuska-loosa twista ; Tuska-Tuska!

look_it_up_T httpwww.clipartpal.comclipart_pdeducationdictionary_10586.htmlThis week’s obscure English word is tournedos.

Your challenge? Write a sentence (or two) in the comments using this word.

Aside: A side note about 2 Common English Words

“Terrific”, like “awful”, used to mean something quite diferent…

Ballad For The Petty & the Scholarwood Bee:

What did I remember that I had prior forgot; &, upon thinking “hey-don’t forget – “, immediately then forgot?

anon, anon(KRO)

Caught up with Xeno

Standing there, snarling beast-eyed

and in a state of quickening.

Suspensed by imagination,

frozen & forever in the endlessness of one instant,

just like Achilles, never catching a tortoise in

a race that took place only in Xeno’s mindseye.

That Rat Bastard (you know the one)

My musling is a Rat Bastard,

literally the rodent spawn of an out-of-wedlocker, and

figuratively, the asshole confessor priest and frenemy,

anon, anon.

But, Boy, can he dance and

how beautiful he sings!

The Ocean Was There

lnexorable is the Ocean, as is the beating and cut of my heart.

No entreaty can yield Its unyielding.

It & I remain ceaseless in Our relentlessness.

The Ocean makes neither demand upon nor encroachment toward

the shore of my heart

– yet both shoreline and waves never cease their enjoined shifting.

It Was A Wash-Out

Apres deluge comes the Fury,

and not vice versa.

Apres deluge comes the Fury.

Flood precedes Fury, although,

Fury may flood.
