Where are the matches?


“We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.” – Abraham Lincoln

Here is what happened last week, the President of the United States, a man who has over 30 known sexual assault allegations against him. A man who has paid off countless women for their silence about their sexual relationship with him. A man who was recorded describing how he personally assaults women, had his pick for the Supreme Court who is also accused, by multiple women, of sexual assault confirmed and sworn-in for the rest of his life as a Judge on the Supreme Court. And your Republican representatives allowed it to happen. Allowed a man who uses power to abuse women to place a man on the highest court in land who also abuses women. That’s what the GOP did. That’s what the Republican’s allowed to happen last week.

Now, you have to ask yourself, what are you going to do about it? It’s time to take this country back. If we have to burn it down to get rid of the hate and corruption then hand me the matches.

“You don’t hand matches to an arsonist, and you don’t give power to an angry left-wing mob. Democrats have become too EXTREME and TOO DANGEROUS to govern. Republicans believe in the rule of law – not the rule of the mob. VOTE REPUBLICAN!” – Donald Trump 

About ends and beginnings blog

I am a frustrated writer and poet waiting to be discovered. A stand-up philosopher performing on a street corner near you. A Christian with questions but I don’t want to hear your answers. A Buddhist with a bumper sticker on my truck to prove it. A collector of quotes. A grower of lettuce. The Patron Saint of earthworms who name their children after me. A cyclist whose big ass strains the seams of his Lycra bibs. I am American by birth, Southern by the grace of God. My goal in life is to leave an imprint on the lives of the people I love not a footprint on the earth. I am a son, a husband, a father composed of 65%-Oxygen, 18%-Carbon, 10%-Hydrogen, 3%-Nitrogen, 3%-Diet Coke and 1%-Oreo.

  2. I’ve got matches…..and nothing to lose. Some folks are still saying compromise is the way to go. I say bullshit. It’s us against them. Could be the fight of our lives, my friend.

      • I am doing good. I thought I would have some time to write but I am really enjoying what I am doing and the project that I am working on within the organization has been neglected for the last 5 years.

        I am an organizer, a creator of a processes and systems and basically I am starting from scratch which is both exciting and time consuming. I have never worked in a non-profit setting so I am trying to balance our profit needs to keep things running against our mission of compassionate giving, care and help. A delicate dance to say the least.

        The other thing that has happened to me LPB is I have grown tired of my anger over The Donald and his group of merry men. A very wise and older lady told me recently that I needed to focus on being the change of what I can change, in other words narrowing what I could accomplish rather than ranting and raving about “things” I have zero control over. She suggested I should focus on giving and receiving “hope” in the lives of the people around me, people Jesus called our neighbors.

        I can’t fix Joe and Debbie Deplorable. I will never be able to convince them that Trump is a piece of shit. But homeless Joe and Debbie that live in my community that need a place to live. That need help getting back on their feet, They don’t care about Trump, or the stock market or Russians. What they care about is surviving. I can help them, and they can help me. We can help each other.

        Hopefully stuff will settle down, and I will get into a routine and can write a couple of times a week…..hopefully. Peace my friend.

          I agree … we miss you. But it sounds like you’re in a good place and that’s what’s important — for health, well-being, temperament, and family. Plus it sounds like you’re adding “feel good” to the mix. 🙂

          I know it can get disheartening to keep writing and complaining about “our leader,” but don’t discount your efforts. Your encouragement to “sound off” to our Representatives and Senators has motivated many of us.

          In any case, we’ll be waiting and watching for those “couple of times a week” posts whenever they get here.

        • Peace to you also. I too am tired of the anger in me over trump and friends. Keep us posted and enjoy your new “freedom”


  3. I still have some faith in our ability to throw out these Senators and other elected officials. The number to vote out is huge but can be done. Vote Blue and believe that our majority will prevail and humanity will rise.

        I hope he’s right, too, but as someone said elsewhere, there’s one thing the Republicans can be counted on to do … and that’s go to the polls and VOTE! Democrats and Independents too often mumble and complain a lot but don’t/won’t get off their you-know-what and do what’s necessary to turn things around.

        Not all of us can go knock on doors, but many who participate on these blogs like to WRITE … and nearly all towns/cities have newspapers that accept reader comments … Need I say more? And of course, writing direct to the idiots people in Congress never hurts.
