Read Ghandi's sobering words on Bitterness, and What it means,
"I have learned through Bitter Experience, the one supreme lesson, to conserve my anger, and as heat conserved is transmitted into energy, even so Our Anger can be transmitted into a Power that Can Move the World. " Ghandi.
"Forgiving does not erase the Bitter Past. A healed memory is not a Deleted Memory.Instead Forgiving What we can not forget creates a New Way to Remember.We Change the Memory of Our past Into a Hope of Our Future". Lewis B.Smedes.
So Now Hillary wants to take away OUR Feelings, even if they are True, that we as Middle America, the Downtrodden do Feel Bitter and yes, we do hold the Past and Present Administrations Responsible. Why shouldn't we ? We are not millionaires, we did not Profit from the NAFTA debacles, we did Not Hire a Union Busters to break Our Spirits , we are merely Working Class Americans attempting to make a living and raise our Children, and while we were all working hard OUR Government Sold us down the River. Yet we are not to have Knowledge of that Inconvenient Truth ? We are to NOT speak of it to an Entitled Woman that is running on the Legacy of her husband and His Name ? Does she take all of us for Mere Fools to soak up her Delusional Lies ( Bosnia Sniper Fire and Ireland Peace Talks non withstanding, and her Campaign Manager meeting with Columbian Officials).
So this week Obama mentioned in a Fundraiser Speech that People in Middle America ( Pennsylvania and Ohio etc.) MIGHT be" Bitter" after having survived the Past Dynasties of Bush and Clinton and Bush of the past 20 years. That people might have suffered a Loss of Quality Life, Quality Dreams and Quality Hope, and that maybe, just maybe Have Found themselves Bitter.I know I have found myself Bitter....as have my friends and neighbors, it is merely a Simple Truth. I say that with Pride, Not Shame. Does it make Us Un-Patriotic to be Bitter ? Is it another false membership Test like the Flag Pin ?
But here is the Forgotten Lesson, People that are Bitter, Fight Harder for a Better Future, and Understand the Hardship of The Truth Self Evident, and are not spoon fed Lies Anymore.We have Suffered, but even an Entitled Millionaire in a Prada Pansuit can not take away Our Wisdom, Our Hard Earned American Perspective.
Click the Title "Which Side are you On" An old Union Song from 1931.....sung by Natalie Merchant, because Hillary has been in DC too long, she has no idea WHOSE side she is on....but not mine. She has not cried tears of a single mom struggling to pay bills at 3am, or at the grocery store putting back meat, to buy Milk. Shame on her.
