Poem Friday – What Ever You Do Don’t Let Texas Be Blue

I have not done a Poem Friday in some time but I needed something like what is going on in this Country to get me off my posteria and write, because I can. Its about ” Seeing something and saying something.”

 

The Great State Of Texas proudly blood Red

Economically wealthy and successful and the best is ahead

 

Proud of their President, their Flag and the American Flag to

Proud of their history, the heritage, there hospitality genuine and true

They love and show great respect for their vets and military men

For those who fought for USA they will always stand up and defend

I have always been so impressed when they take time to shake their hand and  personally comend

 

I know the wealth and beauty of this State is the envy of many 

The door should be open to those who share this pride not just any

 

Those from the States  and cities that are blue

Stay there, clean up their mess,  get your politicians to work as they should do

 

They appear to be unhappy, mean, and vicious it seems

It appears that they have lost their  spirit and their American Dreams

 

The blues cause unrest, bringing the ‘Reds’ down in their sights

This State is a great state with no need for anti establishment fights

 

It does not need the face covered Antifas, climate changers, destroying property into the nights

Freedom of speech as it should be  is a Texans right

 

Texas they have the right constitutionally to bear Arms

They need Guns to protect themselves, their land and their Farms

 

So Blues if you come to Texas to stay

You need to think about changing to red and live the Texan way

 

I am neither a Republican or Democrat in fact I  live in Australia that is true

I stay in Texas for the months that they allow and leave when due

But I have to say be careful  and “What ever you do don’t let Texas be Blue”

 

 

 

Go Vote for your President you need him and he needs you

Did You Know « 10/18/2010

The only place in the universe where a flag flies all day, never goes up or comes down, never flies half-mast and does not get saluted, is the moon.


Pork is big business: it is the world’s most widely-eaten meat. It therefor is rather apt that pigs are responsible for the naming of one of the world’s leading financial centres. To stop free-roaming pigs rampaging through their grain fields, Manhattan Island residents built a long wall on the northern edge of what is now Lower Manhattan. The street that came to board the wall was named… Wall Street.

Another interesting story about pigs is“During the War of 1812, a New York pork packer named Uncle Sam Wilson shipped a boatload of several hundred barrels of pork to U.S. troops. Each barrel was stamped ‘U.S.‘  On the docks, it quickly became bantered about that the ‘U.S.’ stood for ‘Uncle Sam,’whose large pork shipment looked to be enough to feed the entire army. Thus did ‘Uncle Sam’ come to represent the US Government itself.” Thus according to the US National Pork Producers Council.


Leaning Tower of Pisa has never been straight Soon after building started in 1173, the foundation of the Pisa tower settled unevenly. Construction was stopped, and was continued only a 100 year later. It then became visibly clear that the Tower of Pisa is leaning, tilting to the south.

The amount of time that people spend on travel has been consistent at 1,1 hours per person per day in all societies. The average distance traveled is 7400 miles (12 000 km) per year. In total, the world population travels more than 16.6 trillion miles (23 trillion km) per year, 53% of which is by car, 26% by bus, 9% by rail, 9% by high-speed transport such as airplanes, and 3% by bicycle, boat and other means.

The muscle that lets your eye blink is the fastest muscle in your body. It allows you to blink 5 times a second. On average, you blink 15 000 times a day. That’s about 10 times per minute, or more than five million times a year. Women blink more than men.

Carrots were first cultivated in 500 BC in the Mediterranean regions. The first carrots were purple, white, and yellow. They were introduced in Europe in the 1600s. Orange carrots – the ones we know today – were first grown in Japan in the 17th century, and later made popular by the Dutch.
