Equality or Opportunity

I live in Utah and I have been watching as our Governor tries to over-reach his bounds and take our liberties away from us and in my thoughts of this these words came to me.

Equality or Opportunity part one


Equality or Opportunity

With one thousand words
I could not tell you the way,
Nor could I make you understand,
For these are the imperfections
In the hearts of man.

Can you not hear them?
They cry out for equality
Because you cry out for equality
And you cry out for equality
Because the media cries for equality.
Equality you say? Equality!
There is no such thing as equality.

Opportunity is the word here.
We all have an equal opportunity
To make something of ourselves.
Work is the operative word here.
To make something, or to make anything
Takes work, and the more we want to make
The more work it’s going to take.
This is the American way.
This is the American dream.

We can only be what we make of ourselves.
There is no other turning here
For I tell you plainly and truly.

Equality or Opportunity part two



And no. We are not our brother’s maker.
And no. This is not the work of Cesar,
But the love of our labor.
The love of the labor of our hands
To hold up our brothers
When they fall down
,
But our brother’s dreams,
Their equal opportunity
Can only be found in the hands of our brothers,
In the labor of his work
For this is our Father’s making,
The fruit of His labor
.
And again I tell you truly
That if you tax a man 10 % of his labor
And give him naught for his work

Then surely this man is 10% a slave.
And what we cannot rightfully do
To our neighbor,
We cannot rightfully patrician Cesar
To do to our neighbor.

In America



In America

We live in a representative Republic,
Not a Democracy,
Which means that we, the people, are the government,
But since we all have jobs to do and lives to live,
And since we all cannot be in Washington
We then vote for like-minded people
To go to Washington and represent us
And they way we feel
And to make the laws we ask them to make.
These are laws that none of us can break,
Not even the government
Because we are part of the government.

The Parable of the Three Neighbors part one


The Parable of the Three Neighbors

There once were three neighbors.
The first neighbor had a car.
The second neighbor had no car.
And the third neighbor had 3 cars.
Now in time the first neighbor
Began to feel bad for the second neighbor
Because he had no car,
And since the first neighbor had only one car
He had no car to give to his neighbor
So he went to his third neighbor
Who had two cars and asked him
To give one of his cars to his neighbor
Who had no car,
But the third neighbor explained
That this was a very special car
And because he felt it was so special
He would not give the car
To the second neighbor.
That night the first neighbor
Who believed that the third neighbor
Really didn’t need the extra car

So he went to the third neighbors house
And he took the second car
And he gave the second car to second neighbor
Because he had no car
And this made the first neighbor felt bad.

The Parable of the Three Neighbors part two


Now…Was the first neighbor right
To take the third neighbors car
Away from him
And give it to the second neighbor
Because the second neighbor had no car?
No…Because it is against the law.
So then can the first neighbor petition the government
To take the car from his third neighbor and give it
To his second neighbor
Because he has no car?
No. Because we are all the government and what we cannot do
As citizens we cannot petition our government to do
Because we all must obey the law.

It is a great poem but there is not equal opportunity in America. I have worked in social justice for the past 40 years and things are far from being equal in opportunity or anything else

Thank you so much Genki, I believe this is blessed country and I fear we are losing her to a lost generation who have taught the wrong values.

Thanks Carol, but I do not agree with you. There is no such thing as social justice in this country, here we believe in the individual and so we have a system of individual justice. Social justice is something politicians scream about to get votes in the inner cities and then they do nothing about the failing schools. Why, because if the people become educated they will have a much better chance at success, if they become successful they will move away and they will lose votes. Look around at all the big cities in this country and in the poor neighborhoods you will find failing schools and it has been this way forever and they always been neighborhoods controlled by the Democrats and they always have been and still the schools stink there.The only things they are concerned with is those who donate to them. Now don't get me wrong Carol, I don't like Republicans all that much either. I learned a long time ago that we all do what is in our best interest, or what we think is in our best interest. Everyone does, and every business does, and yes even political parties do. So now ask yourself honestly, what is in the best interest of a political party that depends on the poor for their power, what is in that parties best interest...More poor, or less poor. My goodness my friend, we spend over 60 thousand dollars on every poor man, woman, and child in this country, that's 120 thousand on a family of four and yet there are poor. Now look at the saleries of those who deal out all that money and you just might begin to see what I am talking about. I tell you that every abeled bodied person in America has an opportunity to make of him or her self what they want. You say you work in social justice, where here is something that will prove my point. Every year millions of dollars of aluminum cans are thrown away in this country. If a person wanted to they could go to all the 7/11 type of businesses and ask them if they could put a collection can in their store for the collection of aluminum cans and that 30% of all the money would go to the local food bank. Yes it would be a small income at first, but it will grow with the willingness of the person to work, spread it to more and more stores, but make sure the food bank is taken care of, that is a tax incentive for that person. I know this woks because I do it, but I give all the money to the food bank, we all have to do our part. You see Carol, no one is going to come and hand out jobs to people like me, I have to make my way, my own job, and if I can do it we all can do it. This is the most free nation on earth and we can do anything if only we are willing to work. Peace be with you.
