Words of Wisdom for 2013…

 
In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
 
When you are right you cannot be too radical; when you are wrong, you cannot be too conservative.
 
I submit to you that if a man hasn’t discovered something he will die for, he isn’t fit to live.
 
Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.
 
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
 
Cowardice asks the question – is it safe?
Expediency asks the question – is it politic?
Vanity asks the question – is it popular?
But conscience asks the question – is it right?
And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular; but one must take it because it is right.
 
Courage is the power of the mind to overcome fear.
 
Life’s most urgent question is: What are you doing for others?
 
It may be true that the law cannot make a man love me, but it can stop him from lynching me, and I think that’s pretty important.
~Martin Luther King, Jr.
 

Letter to the President, Dec. 19th, 2012

Dear Mr. Obama,

Listen up, MAN: Your precious “Legacy” will be pilloried by the FACT that YOU, SIR, are a LYING DEMON, cut from the very same cloth as your buddies in the Banks and on Wall Street that bankroll you.

You are blatant and utterly shameless in your despicable campaign of lies, trickery, deceptions. You must be very proud of yourself, being nothing but a silver-tongued con man and opportunistic prostitute…A whore, in other words.

I knew what you were the moment you appointed Geithner and Summers, the same crooks who deliberately tanked the economy; Yes, a horrible sinking feeling came over me in my growing comprehension that you, Mr. President, are the DEVIL.

Furthermore, you are, without any doubt, to quote Cornell West now, “A black mascot of Wall Street oligarchs and a black puppet of corporate plutocrats.”
To further quote West, “And now he has become head of the American killing machine and is proud of it.”
What a Disgraceful TRAVESTY.

With Pure Contempt,

Christina Marlowe
