It is mine to avenge. In due time their foot will slip; their day of disaster is near and their doom rushes upon them."
And I will punish the unjust for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.
And I will lay my vengeance upon the wicked by the hand of the righteous: and they shall do to them according to my anger and according to my fury; and they shall know my vengeance.
And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine.
All they that devour thee shall be devoured; and all thine adversaries, every one of them, shall go into captivity; and they that spoil thee shall be a spoil, and all that prey upon thee will I give for a prey.
I will carry out great vengeance on them and punish them in my wrath. Then they will know that I am the Lord, when I take vengeance upon them.
Vengeance is mine; I will repay, sayeth the Lord.

Through me you pass into eternal pain:
Through me among the people lost for aye.
Justice the founder of my fabric mov'd:
To rear me was the task of power divine,
Supremest wisdom, and primeval love.
Before me things create were none, save things
Eternal, and eternal I endure.
All hope abandon ye who enter here.

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way.
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way.
Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain.
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today.
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you.
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun.
So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again.
The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older,
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.
Every year is getting shorter; never seem to find the time.
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone, the song is over,
Thought I'd something more to say.
I like to be here
When I can
When I come home
Cold and tired
It's good to warm my bones
Beside the fire
Across the field
Tolling on the iron bell
Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spell

The End Is Near - Repent!
I know this because I just read a blurb at HuffPo - and I agree!
Here is a snippet from that story:
. . . human civilization is doomed to become a horde of rude, bent-neck, mobile phone-addicts bumping into each other on the street

Blinded by the neon lights.
Hurry here, hustlin' there,
No one's got the time to spare.
Money's tight, nothin' free,
Won't somebody come and rescue me?
Tooth for tooth, eye for an eye.
Sell your soul just to buy, buy, buy.
Beggin' a dollar, stealin' a dime,
Come on can't you see
that I am stranded, caught in the crossfire.
I need some kind of kindness,
some kind of sympathy
Save the strong lose the weak,
Never turning the other cheek.
Trust nobody don't be no fool,
Whatever happened to the golden rule?
We got stranded, caught in the crossfire

Here it is the 5th day of November, and I find myself a refugee from the TV room the past few weeks. It seems that I am beginning to overdose on election season blather and propaganda.Two years ago the State of Washington’s Governor’s race was the closest contest in history. The election night count had the two candidates separated by a fraction of a percentage point. The first count showed that a fellow by the name of Rossi to be the winner. A recount had Rossi still in the lead. To Mr. Rossi’s chagrin, a third count bumped him out of the Governor’s office by less than 130 votes out of 2.8 million ballots cast.Of course the outcome was challenged in the courts - many times and in many venues - up to and including the State Supreme Court. In each instance the documented and indisputable evidence of election fraud was staggering.· More votes cast than there were registered voters.· Hundreds of votes from convicted felons.· Hundreds of votes from graveyard residents.· Thousands of votes that were “found” after the first, second, and third vote tallies.· Hundreds of ballots that were discarded as “defective.”· Hundreds of votes from “Poll Hoppers”- These folks wandered from precinct to precinct,voting early and voting often· Hundreds of votes from cats, dogs, parakeets, and sundry house pets.· Thousands of votes from illegal aliens.· Thousands of votes from non-residents.The interesting thing is that the vast majority of these documented fraudulent events were in favor of the final victor, and our newest Governor. The “irregularities” were concentrated in less than 10 percent of the precincts that leaned strongly toward the final winner.Here in the state of Washington, more and more counties have closed down the polling places in favor of 100% mail-in ballots. Last night the Secretary of state was on the tube gleefully predicting an upsurge in democracy and a huge voter turnout - all because of the new vote-by-mail strategy.In reality, I suspect his glee is due more to the fact that his office has been relieved of the burden of ensuring a fair and equitable election process.Up until this year, voting at the polls was a genuine free-for all. State law prohibited poll workers from checking the identity of prospective voters. No voter registration cards were required. Voting could take place in any precinct, whether registered there or not.The solution? 100% vote by mail.Yup - the total number of ballots cast is going up, and the quality of the votes is going down.I guess the theory is quantity vs. quality.In my community the outcome of an election can easily be predicted by using a couple of very simple methods.· Count election posters and yard signs. The candidate with the most signs wins.· The snappiest campaign slogan wins· The apparent ethnicity of the candidate’s name. Good old American sounding names win.Here is an example: The local City Council race has Larson pitted against CruzLarson has thousands of signs vs. hundreds by Cruz.Larson’s campaign slogan is “Guarding your rights -saving your money.”Surname: Good old boy vs. “Foreigner.”Larson is an unemployed (and unemployable) recluse without documented secondary education.Cruz is an articulate community leader with considerable education and sheepskins from renowned universities.Larson has been openly ridiculed by the local newspaper as a loose cannon, a slanderer, and a general crackpot.Cruz has the overwhelming endorsement of the business community, and the (politically Liberal) newspaper.In a recent public meeting, Larson attempted to use an overhead transparency projector by placing a book on the glass. He was genuinely surprised when the screen suddenly went black. Even turning the book over didn’t improve matters. He accused the meeting sponsors of sabotage and conspiracy.Larson will win the election.I genuinely believe that drafting public officials by lottery would be preferable to our reliance upon our brain-dead neighbors, and the public servants they select.
Here is an Update: In the next election for Governor it was a rematch: Rossi vs. Gregoire II. this time the Liberal machine had
Uncle Joe was right.
