Hypocrisy
 
These so called leaders of today
Ignoring stark lessons of the past
Power and greed are their mantras
Brushing away Karma they will not last

  5. Cat-tails...I was actually referring to all the clowns in the 2016 Political Circus car. Where did all the honest decent men and women go?
    Dr Carson is a good man, but he doesn't stand a chance-since he's a honest and forthright man.

I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page. I will never open this sort of comment and will immediately mark as spam. I am not interested in opening something that could be detrimental to my blog security etc. Never have enjoyed hackers! Thanks!
