so waking up this morning, my mind is just a-buzz...
so many things to say and so little time
thoughts overfloweth, yet forced into a sand dial
Taking cues and insight from my itty bitty Bible Handbook, from Nelson's Pocket Reference Series (although it is little -- fitting into an actual pocket falls into the 'slim to none' chance...) -- the Psalms....a book of poetry, really... was written in a style called "parallelism." This is where "one phrase is followed by another that says essentially the same thing but in a more creative, expressive way." And the handbook then gives us an example:
"The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge. (46:11)"
This would be synonymous parallelism.
At other times, antithetic parallelism is used, where the thing of the first line is followed by a direct opposite in the second thing...
"For the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
But the way of the ungodly shall perish. (1:6)
And even at other times, the second line is just repeating what was said in the first, with the exception of adding emphasis, like a ta dah! -- and in this manner, it is called progressive parallelism.
"The floods have lifted up, O Lord,
The floods have lifted up their voice (93:3)"
Although, while all of this is aiming to bring me closer to the point, it's sure a round about way of going about it, isn't it? isn't it. And still, even though there is more to say, to touch upon on the way the Book of Psalms is written -- from authorship, to style, to the way we might separate and classify the meaning of each of the 150 letters, or Psalms, within -- this girl will have to leave that for another day.
What is compelling is this speak and repeat speech pattern.
What happens when we hear something repeated?
It instantaneously becomes better understood; the emphasis strikes the exclamation cord and as the vibration ripples into the air, no sooner does the first line hit the listener before the second comes in with carrying the one-two punch.
The thing is, this girl is beginning to see a pattern of President Trump...
He is able to do something, say something, and repeat it all the live long day; he even doubles down on what is says and does all the live long day. And the next day, he gets up and does it again.
And by the way, there is nothing wrong with the TEMPORARY, highly specific and fully precedent-ed immigration vetting tool, fulfilled by executive order and signed last Friday; the one throwing airports and hissy-fit Leftists upside down and beside themselves in protest. [That link is just a good synopsis of the whole thing....thank you, thank you, to The Patriot Post and Thomas Gallatin]
Sunday afternoon, while the PGA Golf Tournament was playing just down the street from G's, at Torrey Pines, the president said this:
The guy is speaking in Psalm.
By Monday afternoon, things went really squirrel-y, and the sitting, temporary, democratic operative and Attorney General -- placed by the Obama Administration -- was fired!
Gallatin, again @The Patriot Post, upon the news of the firing of the AG, shared a quick afterthought:
"This whole episode epitomizes just how politicized these federal agencies have become after eight years under Barack Obama. He stigmatized Republicans as the enemy and instilled within the federal agencies hard leftist leadership bent on promoting his socialist agenda. He refused to work with Congress in seeking genuine compromise, demanding only that lawmakers capitulate to his leftist vision for the nation. Obama created this politicized mess that, thankfully, Trump is more than ready to clean up."
This morning is reminding me of Trump's methods to meet the madness, and if there is anyone capable of meeting such demands, day in and day out, pretty sure this is the guy; this is the guy!
And considering the past president of late -- President Barack "fundamentally disagrees" Obama -- is already chiming in on the great travesty afoot, oh my great travesty (although, this is through his spokesman, Kevin Lewis) -- don't fall for any of the propaganda! None of it! Don't fall for it! And for a little help up, here is a great post @ The Daily Wire, of course, offered up only to anyone lending an ear for serious, reality-based reception, by John Nolte -- DON'T FALL for....
And understand this.
And disregard that.
But make no mistake: All of that which we are bearing witness -- from the main stream media, to the halls of congress, to the Left coast of Hollywood and Sanctuary -- is designed by and for the Leftists to win; right out of the pages of Rules for Radicals, we are bearing witness to the degradation of every American principle and foundation from the grassroots. It is as organized as any progressive psalm, and as evil as any free radical can dream.
The only thing to add to this and that and the other is get ready folks, be prepared, for it is only just beginning; welcome to the new world, politicizing every little thing and big thing and the things in between for the next four to eight years. But let not your heart be troubled:
"The earth is the Lord's and everything
the world, and all who live in it;
for he founded it upon the seas
and established it upon the waters."
[Look it up, for it's a shorty; look it up, for it's a shorty and a goodie!]
Thanks be to God, there truly is a God.
Make it a Good Day, G
And by the way, I'm off for a wee bit...
have things to do, places to go, people to see;
recommend you re-read G from the beginning, for it is good.
It is good. :)
Just hit the sidebar and go to town and country and back again.
