The Gift (A serial, part 4)

THE GIFT (A serial, part 4)

Morty cut down the beautiful spruce, with the empty birds’ nest, and found the spot where the rabbit used to stay warm.

“Well, Mr. Rabbit,” he said, “come home with me. I’ll keep you warm.” The rabbit jumped out from under another tree and said,

“Will you take care of me the way Connie did?”

“Yes,” said Morty, “come with me.” Then the cardinal and the sparrow, and the chickadee all flew around his head.

“Will you take care of us too?”

“Sure!” said Morty, “come with me we are going to have a great time.”

Morty pulled Connie through the grove to where farmer Jim would find them. He began to wonder about how he would get the tree home on his scooter. Although Connie is a little tree he is as tall as Morty, and his branches spread out much wider than Morty. Just then, Farmer Jim came by with the wagon and picked them up. Farmer Jim told Morty not to worry because he would help tie the tree to his scooter.

In the shed, next to the barn, Farmer Jim placed Connie into his wrapping machine. The machine wrapped cord around the tree branches, pulling them tightly into the trunk. When the farmer finished wrapping him, Connie was much thinner than before.

Morty carried Connie to his scooter but could not figure out how to load him on the scooter. The trunk on the scooter was only big enough to hold a picnic lunch and some tools, so Connie could not ride in the trunk. Before Farmer Jim came out of the barn to help, Morty placed the tree against the side of the scooter. The side of the scooter was smooth, and nothing was sticking out to hold the rope. Next, Morty put him on the seat. He fit nicely lying along the top and hanging over the end of the scooter, but Morty would have to sit on top of him to drive.

Morty did not like that, so he tried holding Connie upright between his legs and arms as he sat on the scooter. This was even worse because he could not see with the tree in his face.

In the end, Farmer Jim tied the tree to the seat,

and Morty sat on it. The bunny jumped on and huddled by his feet, and the birds all perched on the branches. Connie hummed the tune to Happy Birthday as they took off.

TASS, USA Style

History repeats itself, but we tend to deny that the same thing will happen to us because we are so much smarter. The generation that allowed a stupid event to occur did not have the history to look back upon. Because we have the history to learn from we will never let that stupid thing happen to us. Even if we didn’t have the history, we are much smarter than the last generation was. The arguments against making the same mistake continue to go on, and we continue living with our heads securely lodged in our asses. We are too stubborn to believe a stupid thing like the loss of a first amendment right, or a second amendment right can happen, even after repeated attempts to destroy these rights.

This week something happened that woke me up and caused me to start writing again. If I choose to ignore the Administration’s attempt to block news from an organization that opposes it’s view, then I am remiss and deserve to lose my rights . I, however, choose to speak out. During the campaign preceding the election of BHO to the presidency, I often spoke of my fears regarding the man and his intentions. I “felt” that he was heading us into a socialist direction. As the campaign progressed, his language and demeanor made me more certain I was correct. Now, I am convinced without a doubt, that Obama wants to be  the next Fidel Castro of our hemisphere. He will not rest until he has destroyed the Constitution, Capitalism, and the Country of the USA. He continues to lower our country to the level of every other country in the world.  He wants us to be the same as everyone else. The idea of the USA being the greatest country in the world is foreign to him. I digress.

Our Constitutional right to a free press is bothering the man. His Communications Director , Anita Dunn openly admitted that during the campaign they controlled the press. They did not allow interviews with the press for fear that some smart ass might ask a question that they were not prepared to answer with ambiguities. That is why Joe the Plumber became such a threat to Obama. He asked one question that Obama did not have a scripted answer for. BO’s answer gave us a peek into the real direction he was headed. 

His attack on Fox News was a blatantly open attempt to get his administration to control the media just as they had done during the campaign. Life is so much easier when the answers dictate the questions being asked. Instead we see reporters like the little boy who asked the President, “Why do people hate you so much?”
