Wisdom from the Realm

The Enemy Within

with 16 comments

A democrat stench of cowardice now permeates the once hallowed halls of Washington. It is bitter and revealing and can only survive where the sweet smell of victory hides in the wind. Visions of courage and valor stand high and low yet go unnoticed. I search for greatness and find only a house divided. Selfish desire and destructive intentions fill their hearts making honor the casualty.

Look and you will see halls that are teeming with activity, but it is a lonely place, dark and foreign. Sometimes a flicker of light can be discovered, but not as in the beginning. I move from house to senate searching for what was, and find it is also lost in time. The lust for power blinds where clarity of vision once flourished. For the statesman of old can not be found because he has been silenced by hypocrites that no longer hide in the shadows.

God is weeping, for we have squandered His gift and now shame is laid at our doorstep. We have forgotten how to fight the good fight and now leave only a trail of unfinished wars. No victory, no honor, no country.

  1. You cannot escape your own logical trap.

    How can you stare at this treasonous, traitorous, pathetic gathering of cowards in the hallowed halls and not act?

    How can you sputter your Pedantic, pathetic psychobabble and wield poetic swords of truth that strike not at the “enemy within”?

    Lord Coward is your name.

    Else – exume the great REPUBLICAN Licoln, and his stalward General Sherman. Tear apeart the Documents of a Nation trod them underfoot – and let flow the rivers of blood. Destroy it – to save it. My god have you no faith – no courage of your convictions.??? Why are you so consumed with a CIVIL WAR in distant lands, CRY HAVOC AND LET SLIP THE DOGS OF WAR – right here at home.

  2. Hi ae

    I purposely wrote this in a style where your interpretation could be different from mine. Let’s just say I find yours interesting.

  3. Good Lord Crimson…

    I did enjoy the poetic quality of your post.

    My flamboyant, reply was simply a provocative means to invoke thought.

    I may violently agree with you on some points… I just cannot follow the logic of many NEOCON authors where the pattern suggest we are headed the way of Sherman on the way to Atlanta – the Federal troops exacting ethnic clensing and genocide of Native Americans – or mushroom clouds over Nagasaki and Heroshima.

    All in the name of protecing “our way of life”

  4. Hi LC,

    You guys and your elevated, poetic license complicated writing styles.

    Why not write in the simple, ignorant sarcastic style like me?

    No one ever mistakes my intent.

  5. Hi LC,

    What a very well written post. As to the “unfinished business,” I just caught Hillary letting slip that State flags should be done away with. Perhaps I should stock up on ammunition.

  6. Hi LC,

    What was the ancient Chinese curse, “May you live in interesting times?” Guess what?

  9. Hi T,

    I’ve read those exact comments, give or take a phrase, on my little blog.

    I could have a jihadi moment, you know, “why do they hate us?”, but what’s the point.

    This particular young man must be in the throes of early bipolar disorder or something. He’s unhinged, allright.

    It’s one thing to rage aginst a stranger, another entirely to hunt the stranger down and assault him.

    I hope no one can find me. lol

    I know your armed, so no problem there.

  10. Hi Simmons

    I expect more from myself than what a mere political label represents, but if you need one “Lord of the Realm” will do nicely.

  11. Hi Tammi

    Thanks for providing a great example of where democrat brainwashing can lead. I wonder if the guy in the article is gonna like prison.

  12. Crimson, that opening sentence is the most melodramatic I’ve read outside of Michelle Malkin. Its pretty damn funny. Especially when you remember that the once hallowed halls that you reference were sold to the highest bidder by the Republican Party when they controlled Congress. i am surprised that they didnot try to renamed the Dirksen Senate Building after Halliburton or Exxon-Mobil.

    While we obviously disagree on lot of things, you have to agree with me that George Bush’s saber rattling against Iran shows that he is completely divorced from reality. Bush is so clearly setting the stage for military action against Iran. Of course, now that he has damaged our military and gotten us bogged down in his unnecessary war in Iraq, there are a whole lot of troops to send anywhere. I know, let’s tell the Bush twins that the clubs in Tehran are amazing and I am sure that they will be on the next plane.

  13. Hi Bloggernista

    Sometimes in life we do things just for the fun of it. The real question is are you smart enough to understand the message? 🙂

    Members of both parties are guilty of disgracing much of Washington so in this matter I feel no inclination to defend any politician.

    As far as Iran goes there is no doubt that it is a growing danger. But I would say the same about any leader that believes it is his destiny to bring about the end of the world. With a few nuclear weapons by his side I have no reason not to believe he will try. But that’s just me.

  14. Saber-rattling, bloggernista? No, my friend, our president does no saber-rattling. Deal with it, but when W. speaks, terrorists tremble. “military destroyed?” No, my friend, the military is as strong as ever. Three thousand fatalities in three and a half years is hardly destruction, especially when the other side has lost hundreds of thousands.

  15. Hi, LC

    I thought your post was downright poetic. Perhaps in the tone of Edgar Allen, but well wrote.

    BritandGrit mentioned above the following supposed Chinese curse:
    “May you live in interesting times.” I’ve always enjoyed that.

    There is serious disagreement as to whether it actually is a Chinese curse, the story goes that this verse is the first of three curses of increasing severity.

    1. May you live in interesting times (may all Hell break loose in your life)
    2. May you gain the attention of important people (important people didn’t like being intruded upon or distracted by unimportant people and usually disposed of them rather abruptly)
    3. May you find what you are looking for (a statement on self-centeredness)

    And to Bloggernista: those hallowed halls remained that way for maybe a decade after our nation was founded, and the slow decline that began at that time has simply become an irreversible plummet. It’s just that Dubya and his Republicrat Congresses have been infinitely less finessed than any other that I have ever seen, and I have seen quite a few.

    Don’t underestimate the depths to which the elevated will eagerly go.

  16. Hi ara

    How perceptive of you to notice the Poe influence. I must admit that poetry is really not my thing, but I find Poe to be the exception when it comes to playing around with words and phases.
