Do you have any? I'll start off with this little diddy I wrote awhile back to remind myself what I should do.



"Flint be sharp to make good spark, no damp be in the pan

pick the vent it must be clear to do the job at hand.

plug the vent with feathered quill when storing for the night

do your part so carefully and it will serve you right."

I am only one man, but I am a man.
I cannot do everything, but I can do something. 
And because I cannot do everything I will not refuse to do something I can do!  
What I can do, I should do, and by the grace of God, I will do!

A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

Some years ago a few  men and I went on a trek with only bare necessities relying on hunting for food. The problem was hunting was very poor and after two days without food I finely killed a squirrel. Nothing tasted so good or gave me strength more than that one little squirrel. When you're very hungry hunting becomes a very serious matter and you turn into a desperate predator. From that experience came this little poem.

"Walk slow, step soft
watch ahead, look aloft

rifle ready, thumb on the cock
prime in the pan of the rifles lock

The hunter's senses aware and keen
his belly is empty flat and lean

If luck be with him he'll make a kill
meat for the pot to get his fill

hunger satisfied for another day
giving strength to be on his way"

Livestock stays in fenced enclosures because they don't control their
own minds.
They could get out with very little effort but they have been convinced
that they can't.
People also stay in subjection because they have given up control of
their own thought processes.
Cattle and horses are faster and stronger than people but people are
smarter then cattle and horses.
If people get out of their “enclosures” however, it’s only because they are
smarter than those that would like to convince them there there is an
enclosure they need to stay inside, when in fact there is none.

Direct quote from the movie,



Senator: Fletcher, there's an old saying, to the victors belong the spoils.
Fletcher: There's another old saying Senator. Don't piss down my back and tell me it's raining.

"Don't tug on Superman's cape,
 Don't spit into the wind,
 Don't pull the mask off the ol' Lone Ranger,
 And you don't mess around with Jim."
