The Day After the Day Of

 

The Day After the Day Of

by Paul Ilechko

 

The sky sheds its tears. This morning

is the morning of the day after. The

day of mourning, the day after the day of. 

I beseech the sky to shed tears in order

to wash away the tears on my face.

 

This is the first day of the time after. This is

the beginning of a new time, the days of pain,

the days of sorrow. We are in mourning. The

sky looks down and sheds its tears for us. We

are the sad and mournful people under the sky.

 

Under the sky, the rain washes away the

muddy streaks left by our tears, the dirty

streaks of sadness displayed on the cheeks

of our desperate faces. We are grateful to the

sky. We are grateful for the cleansing rain.

 

The horizontal rain lashes our weary bodies.

The sharp needles of the rain tear into our

soft and needy flesh. This is the time of a

new cruelty. The rain is in the service of the

new age. The rain is a tool of hate and cruelty.

 

The rage of the new day. The anger and hate

turning rain into blood. This is the morning,

the morning after. This is the beginning of the

age of suffering. We beseech the rain to leave

us in peace. The rain laughs in our filthy faces.

 

The rain laughs in our blood-stained faces. We

are the people of the days before. We are under

the influence of the rain, the rain of the day after

the day of. We are overwhelmed by the rage,

the hate, the pain, of the day after the day of.

Hon Philip Kapneck Working For The People

“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.” Thomas Jefferson

Hardworking people that are working for the people try to cut cost anyway that they can to help decrease America`s budget deficit and create jobs for Americans. Trade Ambassador Philip Kapneck has helped to create jobs for more than 30 years and has attracted business and industry to Maryland while working many years, without remuneration.

Ambassador Kapneck was first appointed by Governor Marvin Mandel to open Maryland`s first overseas office in Brussels, Belgium as the State`s Trade Ambassador. Ambassador Kapneck has been appointed by each administration to date since his first appointment to Belgium. He assisted the Federal Government in “Invest in the USA”. Ambassador Kapneck works tirelessly for the people of Maryland, creating jobs by bringing companies to Maryland that are unique and useful, and that need a quality workforce.

Ambassador Kapneck has introduced many companies to Maryland by helping these companies get established in the State of Maryland. Once they are established he continues to assist them in contacting other business operations which in turn makes the new companies a valuable part of the state economy and in turn, this helps to reduce unemployment numbers.

Ambassador Philip Kapneck is the true meaning of the inaugural speech once given by President John F. Kennedy. “Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country.”

A State Official said that Ambassador Kapneck is not looking for publicity or public recognition for his work; he just wants to help people.

Each week we will highlight people working for the people and making America stronger.

Florida’s Beaches Tarred and Feathered

“Tests are still being run to find out if tar balls found in Central Florida are from the Deep Water Horizon spill. They started washing ashore in Brevard County on Tuesday and a few tar balls were reported Wednesday in Ormond Beach.

The Coast Guard is now helping Brevard County clean it up. They consider the tar balls part of an oil spill that they are tasked with investigating. Whether it’s related to the Gulf disaster or not, the Coast Guard was out making sure the beaches are clean for the time being.” Read More

I was born in San Francisco, and I consider the City by the Bay the most location anywhere in the world. But I most admit that Florida’s pristine white sand beaches are superior to the ones in San Francisco.

I’ve been to Florida a couple of times, and I love walking on the beach picking up sea shells, admiring the bikini-clad ladies, and wading in the warm water.

It’s a shame that tar balls have started washing ashore in Brevard County, the words “tar ball” and “Florida beaches” should never be used in the same sentence.

The source of the tar balls in still unknown, but must likely you can place the blame on BP. Floridians and every other American who cares about the environment should consider boycotting BP. If any BP honcho comes to Florida he should be pelted with tar balls. Not really, I don’t condone violence, I’m just so outraged by BP’s carelessness.

Hispanics Under 30 Please Have ID Ready!

I am Will Roberts and when in Arizona I don`t leave home without this! If I did…

I might be stopped and arrested.

Then again, I don`t meet the profile.

Our President said we won`t do it at our airports any longer, but Mc Cain said “we will do it in my state!”

One day: welcome to starbucked Sir..  I will need to see your Drivers license, your green card, your credit score, and 3 references and could you tell me the name of the 8th President of these United States, without googling it on your phone! ….

Will Roberts: hmm, I don`t even know that one.

Sometimes it is odd to me that they make folks that want to become US citizens know more about America than 20 Americans know all together.

I think the only thing Americans really need to know is: Who is our President and Vice President are right now? And do you consider him your President? If not do you have another country you would like to move to? That is all you need to remember.
