Celebrating Heroes

I want to respond
to the retired Marine
who watched Democratic Congressional Leaders
during the State of our crippled Union event,
disappointed at how their patriotism,
their loyalty to sacred sacrifices of soldiers
appears too tepid,
jaded,
ungrateful
as compared to more thunderous enthusiastic applause
and standing ovations of Republican Leaders.

I have noticed this too
both during various national bipartisan rhetorical events,
and also within my conscientious objector self,
And I wonder about my own hesitation
to celebrate military heroism,
as if this were an oxymoron,
like military peace intelligence.

For me,
such internal heart-warming applause
is chilled by my own half-empty embarrassment
that I have gone through my recent months and years
perhaps too full of willing tolerance
for moral assumptions too big to fail,
that we are OK to predatively place
other men and women,
regardless of culture or religion or nationality,
and their necessarily neglected children,
in harms toxically unnecessary way.

An heroic investment
far too expensive for developing healthy persons,
plants,
or planet.

This is not how we wisely invest
in sacred Earth’s climates
and healthing cultures.

My celebration of military heroes
remains perennially muted
by my unease about planting future threats
by paying springtime federal taxes
because I conscientiously object,
for spiritual experience
and religious belief reasons,
how large the mountainous percentage
invested in threat of death and dying
and paying ever-mounting interest
on past military industrialized deficit
overheating budgets.

Stolen from potential health
and well-being
of Earth’s future generations
spread throughout all Earth’s sacred residents
now terrified of upcoming ballistic climates.

I should have tried harder,
more conscientiously,
to invest in restoring ballasts of co-operative climates.

So, I intend no disrespect
for courage
and honor
and heroes
for those who have survived
violence and
fear and
anger and
greed and
political pretensions of Elitists
too old to fight themselves,
but just rightwinged enough
to invest in further armaments,
and thereby profit nicely.

I feel no disrespect
for those who have not survived
and will not survive,
much less thrive in pathological death-culture.

But nationalistic applause
and praying for God’s blessings on U.S. First and Last,
Right or Wrong,
feel consciousness unsettling
when I experience God’s applause
for love and peace
and not our hate and
fear and
anger and
violence against each other,
regardless of religion or
culture or
national origin
or gender
or color
or age,
born,
long gone,
or yet unborn.

I know God too omnipotent and omnipresent
to respect inhumane national apartheid boundaries.

Heroes
are those who have gone well past their patriotic duty
far beyond what anyone could honestly
and reasonably ask,
beyond what most of us might expect of ourselves,

Especially while those left behind
remain in free-markets
to profit off the tanks
and submarines
and rifles soldiers bravely carry,
bullets and bombs they aim,
often at the even more profitable investments
of these same 1% Elite,
regardless of International Conglomerate Status.

For those who are persuaded
what was asked
was itself a positive democracy protecting moral act,
standing ovations of buoyant applause
feel resoundly called for
from warmly celebrating hearts.

But, for those of us
who empathize with heroes both alive and dead
regardless of religion or culture or national origin,
who feel such violence reflects our own democracy protecting failures
to conscientiously love all sacred life sufficiently,
Such unmitigated happiness feels heart-wrenchingly wrong.

In face of such selfless investment
in violence and risk to healthy futures
for threatening death
and objectives of destruction,
we more likely bow our disinvested heads,
take a humbled knee,
silent in awe of such uncompelling bad-breathed ambiguity,

Yet not wanting to offend
against such sacred gifts
offered at an unacceptable cost
We never had the conscientious right to ask
another soul to pay.

I do not believe disrespect
is democratically intended
for lack of con-celebrating our violent history’s heroes;
but respectful listening grows more conscientiously compelling
for humility
of political and economic enablers,
co-investors like myself,
with guilt and shame about what others have paid
because we did not act sufficiently
for waging and investing peace,
Incarnating God’s love
for all Earth’s SacredTribes.

New Year Insanity Resonanciations

I have already noted a change,
a deepening analysis
in second year framing of the Trump Administration’s
first hazing year in O.D. fascist process.

A DOA year ago,
we grew heatedly invested in fake-conversations
about whether the fake-patriotic Republican Party
was really all that more fake-Constitutionally media
and unmediatedly insane
than other U.S First and Only partisans,
other special fat and long-infested interests.

This January
by contrast
we apparently have accepted last year’s insanely obvious
supremacy of insanity
held by Republican national leaders,
as the last Wise PatriarchalElder shadows
of Eisenhower AntiMilitaryIndustrial Administrative investments
fade into family multicultural values
associated with stardust memories.

Now our questions
have evolved into which Republicans are most insane
and which slightly less so,
on a scale from ZenZero
through RightWing rabid overpopulated paranoia
nightmares of sleep-deficit caffeinated Western cultures
self-medicating chronic stress
of patriarchal violent secularizing
WinLose
EitherOr
indiscriminate double-binding MADness tendencies;
absence of bilateral ego-eco consciousness.

Hopefully
by the beginning of a Trumpian ThirdReich,
these National FakeConstitutionally InCorrect Republicans
will all be too busy
locking each other up in their insane asylums
and retributive secular courts of punitive law
and lack of moral aesthetic nature-spirit harmonic order,
and then throwing away the keys
to their not-so-divine Kingdoms of Competing EitherOr
Absence of Sufficient SacredGrace.

Such third year fascist distractions
could get them unelected,
and unelectable,
as we post-millennially open
to more organically Green Democratic Ways
and PermaCultural Means
toward Restorative Justice
as also Healthy EcoPolitical Grace
of AbundantLove.

Seeking HealthCare Experience

I recently have heard
from a people of growing remorse,
Perhaps we should add to Presidential prerequisites
some prior experience in public service.

While this has always been a personal requirement,
I had not thought we would need a legal restriction,
where logical and moral imperatives are so blatantly transparent
and mutually compatible.

If you need heart and brain surgery
and have a list of candidates to choose from,
And you instead choose your dentist
because you are uncertain about those distant names
but you know how your dentist smells and tastes,
then we should be alarmed
if you also propose
to lead our way on health care planning
and Earth climate therapies,
insurance,
assurance,
compassionate reassurance,
especially when early drafts specifically disinvest
of dental care,
and inside
and outside nutritional development
for public as extended family service.

Trickling Down and Out Theories

Those of us living in the USA
too often hear Republican capitalist dogma
of The Great Trickle Down Theory,
in which those who have most
must get more first
so they can hire more who have least,
although perhaps not with living wage
and preferably without health care if at all feasible,
to spread this centralizing wealth around
so we can become better day and night consumers
of all the thneeds and trinkets offered in exchange
for our enslaving rented lives.

And so it was with raised eyebrows
I heard Donald Trump explain
to us unwashed and un-self-insuring masses,
that he paid so very little income taxes
because it is his sacred duty
to himself
his family
and his stockholders
and incorporated co-investors
to pay as little tax and operating fees as legally possible
so there is more to hoard,
and less and less to trickle out.

So, I guess this carries some tension
with Trickle Down,
becoming, more accurately,
The Not-So-Great Trickling Out Theory
of richest capitalist hoarding.

But, just in case you are listening, Donald,
which I know you are not,
but maybe some more responsible Republican employer,
I am quite sure that Wharton never spoke this lie
that you have any legal, much less moral, obligation
to retain as much wealth as possible
to re-invest in further corporate greed
to act as little trickling out as possible
while speaking in loud nationalistic patriotic
Trickle Down and Out!
to all us little people,
sometime,
preferably after this year’s self-congratulatory pay out,
made possible by all us humble caregivers
opening your doors for tips
and cleaning your several stressed toilets,
where only yellow and brown
too slowly trickle down.

Extermination of Elder MultiCultures

A problem for more successful Nazi leaders
during the early exterminating 1940s
was what would they be
should they no longer have any reason to war against
the soon to be extinct Jews.

Yes, they were a nation of Aryan patriots for FatherLand,
wanting to prove themselves a species of Aryan Supremacists.
but, what is an Aryan supreme over,
when Earth becomes a NaziOnly Nest?

History proved the Nazis wrong
about their military supremacy,
but also about the creolizing democratization strength
of cooperative-regenerative Allies becoming together.

And, already in world history of cultural revolution stories,
even Nazi academics must soon begin to wonder,
Could we have developed Germanic-Aryan ethnicity
had there been no Judeo-Abrahamic creolization enculturation history?

I am concerned
that the U.S. Republican Nationalist Party’s Central Committee
faces a similar problem,
not about AntiSemitism, in particular,
but larger, more systemic, problems
of having only a
“What we are offendedly against”
economic and politically degenerative agenda.

When all Other nations and people and species and plants and Earth’s organic systems
do not look and smell and taste and feel and sound
like the MonoCultural Republican Nationalist Paternalistic Political Central Committee;
when all lesser beings have been put in our rightfully suppressed
and oppressed
and repressed degenerating extinguishing places,
what then?

Who would be left
that anyone could cooperatively trust
to build a more regeneratively healthy world,
much less merely One Elite-Predative WinLose Sustainable Empire?
There is no one left to lose,
except by playing not so nice
amongst their Other-destroying selves.

When political agendas
begin to look like menus
for who we will feed off next,
then essentially cooperative nutritional economies,
requiring deep, rich creole-nurturing norms and values,
curl up and eco-degeneratively die.

It’s called over-grazing,
monoculturing expansionism
toward ecopolitical Tipping Points
of elite-plutocrats left nakedly alone,
bereft of any proletariat ecosystemic fringe
of and for nurturing bootstraps.

RePublican OverDeGenerative Investors,
over-exposed to a very pissed off pathologically barren climate
of drought
and internally rabid
cannibalistic pestilence,
and then further disintegrating entropy
eventually re-emerge WinWin natural organic elements
with more trusting mirror-neural nurture natures
to try slow growth polyculturing re-developmental ecologic,
more democratic transnational climate-regions once again.

While Nationalist-Elitist Committees
continue their old-fashioned Eat or be Eaten survivalist mythos,
Earth continues Her wider WinWin platforms and parties
guilds and coalition networks
for eating and eco-nurturing together
is healthier than biting and tearing off alone.
