Sorry posted this wrong first time link is okay now.What is tyranny? What defines it? Would we see it coming?Are we headed for fascism? Are we there already?
This is a very thought provoking documentary by a guy called Larken Rose. It asks questions that the main media dare not touch. What is the nature of our current society and leaders? Are we awake to what is really happening around us? Do we really know where we are headed?http://www.youtube.com/attribution_link?u=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3Dwx7XG-Ohx-A%26feature%3Dshare&a=UzEU-IS6CHSQU5yJPP3XCw

Okay well last night, being Friday 18 October 2013, I had the great pleasure of attending the launch of Meath writers circle anthology, a compilation of prose and poetry. The launch was attended by hundreds, from near and far. A good night with songs, music, poems, stories, food and drink. It was launched by the one and only Pat Farrelly, the main man for many years behind the Scurloughstown festival committee, a good guy. He said, he was only coming on as a "sub" for the other guy who couldn't make it. We had attendees from the Scurloughstown Olympiad, from the Boyne writers, the Meath writers and people from God knows where. Our main hosts, and the ones who put the anthology together and got funding and publishing done, were Frank Murphy and Willie Hodgins, well done guys, a fine job. Frank and Willie also compered the evening. Mention was made of the late great Tommy Murray founder of the Meath writers and friend. I took many photos but because of the dark room, my camera was being temperamental and only half came out, well I tried people. So I'll give you what I have. I have two poems in the book myself and am looking forward to sitting down and having a good read of all the other pieces therein. Well done to all involved and all who turned out, a great night.

We bite the hand
We bite the hand that starves us, we bite the hand that cheats,
That keeps us down by any means, with many great deceits.
We bite the hand that cuts, we bite the hand that kills.
That hurts the weak and innocent, and tries to break our wills.
We bite the hand that fills the world with viciousness and lies.
Who take away our freedoms and watch us with their spies.
We fear not all their tyranny and the things they do for gain.
Afflicting poor and helpless, indifferent to their pain.
We bite the hand that tells us we are born to be their slaves,
And praises our fallen heroes while dancing on their graves.
Who would only wish to brutalize and subjugate the earth,
Only seeing our children for the money they are worth.
We bite the hand of twisted minds, who crush the people down.
We are not crushed, we are not beaten, our day will come around.
Someday it will be all over and truth shall then be known.
