It’s Time for America to Go Dutch

The Netherlands, where six per cent of the population is now Muslim, is scrapping multiculturalism.In the new integration system, the values of the Dutch society play a central role. With this change, the government steps away from the model of a multicultural society.

  • The letter continues: “A more obligatory integration is justified because the government also demands that from its own citizens.” It is necessary because otherwise the society gradually grows apart and eventually no one feels at home anymore in the Netherlands.
  • The new integration policy will place more demands on immigrants. For example, immigrants will be required to learn the Dutch language, and the government will take a tougher approach to immigrants who ignore Dutch values or disobey Dutch law.
  • The government will also stop offering special subsidies for Muslim immigrants because, according to Donner; “It is not the government’s job to integrate immigrants.”.
  • The government will introduce new legislation that outlaws forced marriages and will also impose tougher measures against Muslim immigrants who lower their chances of employment by the way they dress.
  • More specifically, the government imposed a ban on face-covering, Islāmic burqas as of January 1, 2014.
  • Holland has done that whole liberal thing, and realized – maybe too late – that creating a nation of tribes, will kill the nation itself. The future of Australia, the UK, USA, Canada and New Zealand may well be read here..The Dutch government says it will abandon the long-standing model of multiculturalism that has encouraged Muslim immigrants to create a parallel society within the Netherlands A new integration bill, which Dutch Interior Minister Piet Hein Donner presented to parliament on June 16, reads:
    “The government shares the social dissatisfaction over the multicultural society model and plans to shift priority to the values of the Dutch people.”

READERS NOTE: Muslim immigrants leave their countries of birth because of civil and political unrest . . . “CREATED BY THE VERY NATURE OF THEIR CULTURE. Countries like Holland, Canada, USA, UK, Australia and New Zealand have an established way of life that actually works, so why embrace the unworkable?

If Muslims do not wish to accept another culture, the answer is simple; “STAY WHERE YOU ARE!” This gives a whole new meaning to the term, ‘Dutch Courage’ … Unfortunately Australian, UK, USA, Canadian, and New Zealand politicians don’t have the … guts to do the same. There’s a whole lot of truth here! AMERICA, ELECTIONS are COMING!

  • A Nation of Sheep, Breeds a Government of Wolves!
  • Borders: Closed!
  • Language: English!
  • Culture: The Constitution, is the Bill of Rights! NO freebies to: Non-Citizens! The people rae rising.

“We Will Never be at War with Islam!” Really

alton_nolenHow do you tie together all of the major terrorist events on American soil since 9/11? Simple: you study the woven web behind the Moore, Oklahoma, beheader Alton Nolen.

He converted to Islam in prison and sat under the influence of Imam Suhaib Webb. Webb was connected to the greater Islamic Society of Oklahoma. Webb also had associations with the mosque where the Boston Marathon bombers frequented. Worst of all, Suhaib Webb was a confidant of Amwar al-Awlaki, the mastermind of the al Qaeda attacks of 9/11/01. The killer utilized the techniques of ISIS. And the Obama administration immediately labels it “workplace violence.”

I know the authorities are having a hard time accurately describing what happened in Moore, but let’s break some things down:

  • This attack occurred after Nolen converted to Islam.
  • This attack occurred after sitting under an Islamic imam’s teaching.
  • This attack followed the rejection of Islamic conversion of co-workers.
  • This attack followed an argument about Islam that got him fired.
  • This attack followed an argument governing Islamic practice.
  • This attack followed Nolen’s intolerance towards anyone’s disagreement concerning the stoning of women (an inherently Islamic practice — as neither Jews nor Christians practice such).
  • This attack followed the rationale of the Islamic State. (Convert, Flee or Die.)
  • This attack utilized the same methodologies as the Islamic State — beheading.
  • This attack — like 9/11 and Boston — was immediately praised — even by Muslims in the U.S.
  • This attack — like the Ft. Hood massacre — was labeled an incident of workplace violence, even when like Ft. Hood “Allah Akbar” was invoked by the evil doer. (The famous invocation of Islam.)
  • The first, most immediate, reports about the incident claimed the Islamic Society of Oklahoma was publicly expressing — not remorse for the victim’s families, or sorrow for the actions of one of their own.

Nope, the first statement from domestic Muslims discussed fears of violent reprisals.

Which is rich, huh?

The evil one comes from their midst, but they are afraid they won’t be treated well?

We continue to be told by the administration that we are not at war with radical Islam. The president inaccurately continues to say that be headings, violence, dominance, rape, and murder are not the actions of Islam.

The problem we face, however, is that our enemy believes they are practicing Islam to its most serious degree. And even if the entire global population of Islam is added up and the radical components of it only consist of 2-3 percent, that still leaves a few million radicals that will continue to come after the infidels and lop off their heads.

Now that the CIA and the military alert us to the idea that ISIS fighters who had been born in the USA have returned from their battles… Now that the Rochester police arrested the ISIS member in upstate New York… Now that ISIS has set up operations in Ciudad Juarez (across only a river from El Paso Texas…) Now that an ISIS-styled beheading took the life of a young man in New Jersey… And now that a Muslim in the heartland carried out an Islamic State-style execution on the inferior female infidels in his office… What is it about this activity BEING Islam that we don’t get?

The American people KNOW it is Islam. We know Islam teaches these things, and we know that there are millions of radicalized Muslims ready to attack.

It has taken our military’s weapons to thwart Islamic terror overseas. In Moore, Oklahoma it took a private gun owner to put down the evil.

What will it take for our president?

NYT: US Assisting Hezbollah in Its Efforts to Oust ISIS From Lebanon

This article appeared on Monday, 22 Sep. 2014
By Jennifer G. Hickey in Newmax

In its campaign to prevent The Islamic State (ISIS) from securing territory in Lebanon, the United States is finding itself allied with some unsavory groups, even sending indirect military aid to the terrorist group Hezbollah, reports The New York Times.

The aid, which came in the form of new weapons, was channeled via the Lebanese Army, which closely coordinates with the Hezbollah terrorist group, according to Mohammad Afif, Hezbollah’s newly appointed head of public relations.

In addition, U.S. intelligence is being channeled to Hezbollah as well, according to Lebanese sources.

This would explain how the terrorist organization was able to pinpoint its first UAV bombing so precisely against the al-Qaida-linked Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist group, which is not associated with ISIS and which in fact currently is fighting against the organization.

Al-Qaida has denounced ISIS as “too brutal.”

According to experts who spoke to The Times, American and weapons intelligence have been shared with the Lebanese army, which has aided Hezbollah’s efforts to deter suicide attacks in areas of southern Beirut that are controlled by the group.

“The international community has an interest in isolating the Syria crisis,” said Afif . “All have an interest to keep the peace” in Lebanon and Afif added that “everyone has their own ways.”

Kamel Wazne, an analyst who studies Hezbollah and American politics, told The Times that by engaging in a battle against ISIS could bring both de facto American collaboration with Hezbollah, as well as covert coordination through intermediaries.

Walid Phares, a Lebanese analyst, warns we should learn the lessons of history calling any cooperation with Hezbollah a “serious mistake.”

“The problem is that Hezbollah is omnipresent in the Lebanese government and has a lot of influence within the Lebanese Army, including the intelligence services,” Phares said in an interview with Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN).

Hezbollah, which the United States lists as a terrorist organization, is using the fight against ISIS as a means to boost its legitimacy and to claim it is necessary to have the group remain in Syria.

“Day after day, it is becoming clear to Lebanon, the Arab, Muslim and international communities that there is a great need for Hezbollah to remain in Syria. The current situation today imposes on Hezbollah to stay in Syria more than any other time,” said Nabil Qaouk, the deputy head of the party’s executive council, according to Lebanon’s Daily Star.

But, the rise of ISIS also has Lebanese reconsidering their opposition to Hezbollah possessing weapons.

“I used to be against Hezbollah keeping weapons and wanted them to hand them to the Lebanese army,” says Rita Sfeir, a Christian woman from north Lebanon, told The Christian Science Monitor. “Now I am more concerned about the Islamic State and I’m thinking at least Hezbollah has weapons to defend us from those butchers.”

Syrian Opposition Chief Thanks Israeli Doctors for Medical Aid


Dr. Kamal Al-Labwani, considered one of the most prominent members of the Syrian opposition movement, was in Israel recently to visit the Syrian casualties hospitalized in the Ziv Medical Center near Safed (Tsfat). A Syrian doctor and artist, sometimes called “the Syrian Nelson Mandela,” Al-Labwani came to Israel to thank the medical teams. “I am filled with appreciation for the devoted medical care that the Ziv Medical Center is providing for the Syrian casualties, people from my nation, who have been injured in the war. This is a touching humanitarian gesture and an opportunity to bridge between the nations and a hope for peace in more quiet times,” he said. “I came to the Ziv Medical Center to thank the hospital for treating hundreds of men, women and children, who have received the highest quality treatment, and emotional support following the difficult events they have experienced during the war in Syria. This treatment is not only for the wounded children and women, it is for the entire Syrian people, this is how we feel and everyone knows this and is talking about it. In Syria, Bashar Al- Assad claims that the Israelis are the enemies, and, here, at the hospital we see who the real Israel is. I ask: who is really the enemy?’” Al-Labwani also met leading figures in the Israeli government during his visit. He was joined on his visit by Moti Kahana, an Israeli-American businessman, who has been involved in humanitarian activities for the victims of the civil war in Syria and in the efforts to assist the Jews still remaining in Syria to leave the country. Hospitals throughout Israel have treated hundreds of Syrians wounded in their civil war. (via Israel21c)



Everyone except the WH says ISIS? If you do just a little research—The Term LEVANT does include the Land of Israel.

Scary, huh?’ Scroll down…

In one press conference after another, when referring to the Muslim terror super-group ISIS, United States President Barack Obama will use the term ISIL instead of their former name ISIS or current name Islāmic State. Have you ever wondered about that? We have.

What makes up the near exact center of the Muslim Levant? Israel.

ISIL stands for the Islāmic State of Iraq and Levant. Now, to us Westerners we don’t really make much of a distinction, do we? No, honestly from our perspective it’s all about the same. But how would a Muslim living in the Middle East view it? Just what is the Levant anyway? Let’s take a look.

The geographical term LEVANT refers to a multi-nation region in the Middle East. It’s a land bridge between Turkey to the north and Egypt to the south. If you look on a map, however, in the near exact middle of the nations that comprise the Levant, guess what you see? Come on, guess!

It’s Israel.

When Barack Obama refers over and over to the Islāmic State as ISIL, he is sending a message to Muslims all over the Middle East that he personally does not recognize Israel as a sovereign nation, but as territory belonging to the Islāmic State.

Now you know why Obama says that he has no plan, no goal, and no stated aim for dealing with ISIS. But he does have a plan, and it’s a really nasty, diabolical one. Obama’s plan is to drag his feet for as long as he can, doing only the bare minimum that Congress forces him to do. His “plan” is to buy ISIS as much time as possible to make as many gains as they can.

And it’s working.

The Islāmic State has garnered millions of dollars, a vast cache of weapons, and in their latest foray have captured Syrian fighter jets. With each passing day that Obama fulfills his stated aim of doing nothing, the Islāmic State grows by leaps and bounds. The ultimate goal, of course, has not changed and will never change.

The ultimate goal is the destruction of Israel.

Now you know a little bit more why Obama chooses his words so carefully, and what’s really in a name.

Shakespeare had it right.

Boarding Planes in Israel – Hard to Beat Israeli Technology!

When I was growing up, my uncle would tell us fascinating stories. One of his stories was about a Kingdom that was having a lot of crime so the King said, “Whoever came up with a solution that works will be greatly rewarded.” Many tried but their solutions did not work until this Old Man said he had the solution. He asked to tear down all the jails and prisons. Then he had one jail for one person built. Right away they had someone who committed a crime. The Old Man said: “Put him in jail.” Very soon another committed a crime and the officers came to ask the Old Man what to do with him to which the Old Man answered: “Kill the first one and put this one in jail!” That ended the crime in the Kingdom. This email reminded me of that story. Maybe this would be the answer to terrorism in the skies!

It’s hard to beat Israeli technology!


TEL AVIV, Israel – The Israelis are developing an airport security device
that eliminates the privacy concerns that come with full-body scanners.
It’s an armored booth you step into that will not X-ray you, but will
detonate any explosive device you may have on your person.

Israel sees this as a win-win situation for everyone.It will also eliminate the costs of long and expensive trials.

You’re in the airport terminal and you hear a muffled explosion. Shortly thereafter, an announcement:

“Attention to all standby passengers, El Al is pleased to announce
a seat available on flight 670 to London . Shalom!”

Finally Revealed: What Our Ambassador in Bengahazi was Really doing

This is an exclusive article by WND, Sept. 9, 2014
Operating under orders of Obama, Hillary Clinton on secret mission

The U.S. special mission in Benghazi and the nearby CIA annex were utilized in part to coördinate arms shipments to the jihadist rebels fighting the Syrian regime, with Ambassador Christopher Stevens playing a central role, documents an explosive new book released today.


The activities, which included a separate, unprecedented multi-million-dollar weapons collection effort from Libyan militias who did not want to give up their weapons, may have prompted the Sept. 11, 2012, attack, charges the new book.

The findings and more are revealed in the new work by radio host and WND reporter Aaron Klein, “The REAL Benghazi Story: What the White House and Hillary Don’t Want You to Know.”

Klein asserts the arms-to-rebels scheme that ran through Benghazi “might amount to the Fast and Furious of the Middle East, the Iran-Contra of the Obama administration.”

However, “The REAL Benghazi Story” cites evidence of arms transfers throughout the summer of 2012, escalating with a major shipment from Libya to Turkey just days prior to the Sept. 11 attack.

It’s finally here: “The REAL Benghazi Story: What the White House and Hillary Don’t Want You to Know.” Get it now at the WND Superstore!

The book finds members of the 17th of February Martyrs Brigade, a militia linked to the Ansar al-Sharia terrorist organization, may have been used as cut outs to aid in the weapons transfers to Syrian rebels.

Perplexing, armed members of the Martyrs Brigade were hired by the State Department to provide internal “security” at the U.S. special mission.

Stevens an ‘arms dealer’?

According to information cited by Klein, Stevens served less as a diplomat and more as an arms dealer and intelligence coördinator for assistance to the so-called Arab Spring, with particular emphasis on the Syrian rebels.

As was widely reported, Stevens originally arrived in Libya during the revolution aboard a Greek cargo ship carrying equipment and vehicles. His original task in Libya was to serve as the main interlocutor between the Obama administration and the rebels based in Benghazi. Stevens never abandoned that role, even after becoming ambassador, according to Klein.

Indeed, the New York Times reported in December 2012 that Stevens himself facilitated an application to the State Department for the sale of weapons filed by one Marc Turi, whom the Times’ describes as an “American arms merchant who had sought to provide weapons to Libya.”

The Times reported Turi’s first application was rejected in March 2011 but was approved two months later after he stated “only that he planned to ship arms worth more than $200 million to Qatar.” Qatar was Turkey’s partner in aiding the Syrian rebels.

Klein notes the Times did not question why a U.S. ambassador would help facilitate government applications for arms dealers. Nor did the Times bother to investigate the possible connection of those activities to the Benghazi attack.

Continued Klein: “After all, it doesn’t take Sherlock Holmes to divine a possible link to the Benghazi assaults amid reports of Stevens supporting a weapons dealer’s application while American intelligence officers hiding in ‘secret locations’ were helping Arab governments shop for weapons to be sent to Mideast rebels, including some of the same groups linked to the September 11, 2012 attacks.”

Klein points out Stevens held his final meeting with a diplomat from Turkey, which was one of the main backers of the Syrian rebels.

What do YOU think? Has the Obama administration covered up the Benghazi truth? Sound off in today’s WND poll!

Arms to jihadists

Klein’s statement about U.S. intelligence officers aiding weapons shipments from “secret locations” is a reference to the larger arms-to-rebels pipeline that is thoroughly documented in the book.

The story began prior to the establishment of the U.S. mission in Benghazi, when the United States and NATO supported Arab airlifts of aid to the rebels who eventually toppled Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi.

The Obama administration’s “Arab Spring” adventures pivoted westward, reports Klein, when the CIA started helping Arab governments and Turkey obtain and ship weapons to the rebels fighting Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria.

The New York Times reported March 25, 2013, that the covert aid to the Syrian rebels started on a small-scale and continued intermittently through the fall of 2012, expanding into a steady and much heavier flow later that year, including a large procurement from Croatia.

However, Klein cites sources saying the airlifts actually began several months before the fall of 2012, including a massive arm shipment from Benghazi to the Syrian rebels in August 2012 days before the Benghazi attack. That massive weapons shipment departed the port in Benghazi and arrived in early September at the Turkish port of Iskenderun, 35 miles from the Syrian border, purportedly to deliver humanitarian aid.

The Times, meanwhile, reported that from offices at “secret locations,” American intelligence officers “helped the Arab governments shop for weapons … and have vetted rebel commanders and groups to determine who should receive the weapons as they arrive.”

Jihadist cut outs

The exact nature of the U.S. involvement with the February 17 Brigade that guarded the U.S. special mission might have been unintentionally exposed when a Libyan weapons dealer formerly with the Brigade told Reuters in an in-person interview he had helped ship weapons from Benghazi to the rebels fighting in Syria.

Klein noted that no one seems to have connected the dots from what the weapons dealer said to the activities taking place inside the Benghazi compound and whether the Brigade serves as a cut out to ship weapons.

In the Reuters interview published June 18, 2013, Libyan warlord Abdul Basit Haroun declared he is behind some of the biggest shipments of weapons from Libya to Syria. Most of the weapons were sent to Turkey, he said, where they were, in turn, smuggled into neighboring Syria.

Ismail Salabi, a commander of the February 17 Brigade, told Reuters Haroun was a member of the brigade until he quit to form a group of his own.

Haroun told Reuters his weapons-smuggling operation was run with an associate, who helped him coördinate about a dozen people in Libyan cities collecting weapons for Syria.

Collecting weapons

Besides arming the Syrian rebels, Klein documents that from the U.S. mission and CIA annex, American agents ran an unprecedented multi-million-dollar U.S. effort to secure anti-aircraft weapons in Libya after the fall of Gadhafi’s regime.

This weapons-collection effort may go a long way to explain the motive behind the Benghazi attack. The various jihadist organizations that looted Gaddafi’s MANPAD reserves and the rebel groups that received weapons during the NATO campaign in Libya obviously would feel threatened by an American effort to try to retrieve the weapons.

In March 2013, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., connected Stevens to that effort. He told Fox News that Stevens was in the Libyan city to keep weapons caches from falling into the hands of terrorists.

Previously, one source told Fox News that Stevens was in Benghazi the very night of the attack “to negotiate a weapons transfer in an effort to get SA-7 missiles out of the hands of Libya-based extremists.”

In August 2013, CNN reported there is “speculation” on Capitol Hill that U.S. agencies operating in Benghazi “were secretly helping to move surface-to-air missiles out of Libya, through Turkey, and into the hands of Syrian rebels.”

In “The REAL Benghazi Story,” Klein fully exposes the extent of the weapons-collection effort, which took place in Benghazi, where a leading U.S. expert was deployed.

Klein relates then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton committed to providing $40 million to assist Libya’s efforts to secure and recover its weapons stockpiles. Of that funding, $3 million went to unspecified nongovernmental organizations that specialize in conventional weapons destruction and stockpile security.

The NGOs and a U.S. team coördinated all efforts with Libya’s Transitional National Council, or TNC. The U.S. team was led by Mark Adams, a State Department expert from the MANPADS Task Force.

Klein cites Andrew J. Shapiro, assistant secretary of state for the Bureau of Political-Military Affairs, who conceded that the Western-backed rebels did not want to give up the weapons, particularly Man-Portable-Air-Defense-Systems, or MANPADS, which were the focus of the weapons collection efforts.

Breaks new ground on Benghazi

Klein’s extensively sourced book breaks news on significant issues related to the Benghazi attack.

A sampling of what the publisher says is contained in the book:

  • Everything is covered from the secretive activities transpiring inside the doomed facility to shocking new details about the withholding of critical protection at the U.S. special mission.
  • Hillary Clinton’s personal role in the Benghazi scandal.
  • Information that raises new questions about what really happened to Ambassador Chris Stevens that night.
  • Answered for the first time is why the State Department hired armed members of the al-Qaida-linked February 17 Martyrs Brigade to “protect” the facility.
  • New reasons are revealed for not sending air support or Special Forces during the assault, while extensively probing jihadist groups behind the attack.\
  • How Benghazi has implications that go beyond the Sept. 11, 2012, attack and may have created major national security threats we now face, fueling conflicts from Mali to Syria to Gaza and beyond.

New Surgery from Israel

This is proving to be the greatest advancement in medicine ever, and once again a wonderful new medical technology comes from the people of Israel, the very people that mindless radicals want to exterminate. See how brain tumors can be removed and the patient can ride a bicycle home within two hours and how a woman can be swimming the next day after a complete hysterectomy. It sounds like stuff from a start wars film, but it is happening in Israel today.

She is a member of the American Sociological Association and the American Philosophical Association.image001

She has been a John M. Olin Foundation Faculty Fellow, and honored as a Distinguished Alumni of the Year by the Nation al Association for Equal Opportunity in Higher Education.

In fall 1988 she was one of a select group of intellectuals who were featured in Bill Moyer’s television series, “A World of Ideas.” The transcript of her conversation with Moyers has been published in his book, A World of Ideas.

Recently, she has published articles on the significance of multiculturalism and Afrocentrism in education, the politics of victimization and the social and political impact of political correctness. Shortly after an interview in 2004, she was awarded tenure.

This article by her is something:
Fellow Americans, Please know: I am Black; I grew up in the segregated South. I did not vote for Barack Obama; I wrote in Ron Paul’s name as my choice for president. Most importantly, I am not race conscious. I do not require a Black president to know that I am a person of worth, and that life is worth living. I do not require a Black president to love the ideal of America .

I cannot join you in your celebration. I feel no elation. There is no smile on my face. I am not jumping with joy. There are no tears of triumph in my eyes. For such emotions and behavior to come from me, I would have to deny all that I know about the requirements of human flourishing and survival – all that I know about the history of the United States of America , all that I know about American race relations, and all that I know about Barack Obama as a politician. I would have to deny the nature of the “change” that Obama asserts has come to America .

Most importantly, I would have to abnegate my certain understanding that you have chosen to sprint down the road to serfdom that we have been on for over a century. I would have to pretend that individual liberty has no value for the success of a human life. I would have to evade your rejection of the slender reed of capitalism on which your success and mine depend. I would have to think it somehow rational that 94 percent of the 12 million Blacks in this country voted for a man because he looks like them (that Blacks are permitted to play the race card), and that they were joined by self-declared “progressive” whites who voted for him because he doesn’t look like them.

I would have to wipe my mind clean of all that I know about the kind of people who have advised and taught Barack Obama and will fill posts in his administration – political intellectuals like my former colleagues at the Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government..

I would have to believe that “fairness” is equivalent of justice. I would have to believe that a man who asks me to “go forward in a new spirit of service, in a new service of sacrifice” is speaking in my interest. I would have to accept the premise of a man that economic prosperity comes from the “bottom up,” and who arrogantly believes that he can will it into existence by the use of government force. I would have to admire a man who thinks the standard of living of the masses can be improved by destroying the most productive and the generators of wealth.

Finally, Americans, I would have to erase from my consciousness the scene of 125,000 screaming, crying, cheering people in Grant Park, Chicago irrationally chanting “Yes We Can!” Finally, I would have to wipe all memory of all the times I have heard politicians, pundits, journalists, editorialists, bloggers and intellectuals declare that capitalism is dead – and no one, including especially Alan Greenspan, objected to their assumption that the particular version of the anti-capitalistic mentality that they want to replace with their own version of anti-capitalism is anything remotely equivalent to capitalism.

So you have made history, Americans. You and your children have elected a Black man to the office of the president of the United States , the wounded giant of the world. The battle between John Wayne and Jane Fonda is over – and that Fonda won. Eugene McCarthy and George McGovern must be very happy men. Jimmie Carter, too. And the Kennedys have at last gotten their Kennedy look-a-like. The self-righteous welfare statists in the suburbs can feel warm moments of satisfaction for having elected a Black person.

So, toast yourselves: 60s countercultural radicals, 80s yuppies and 90s bourgeois bohemians. Toast yourselves, BlackAmerica. Shout your glee Harvard, Princeton , Yale, Duke, Stanford, and Berkeley. You have elected not an individual who is qualified to be president, but a Black man who, like the pragmatist Franklin Roosevelt, promises to – Do Something! You now have someone who has picked up the baton of Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society. But you have also foolishly traded your freedom and mine – what little there is left – for the chance to feel good.

There is nothing in me that can share your happy obliviousness. God Help Us all…
