Civilisation has operated in two ways - To make one part of society more affluent and the other more wretched than would have been the lot of either in a natural state
There are Natural Rights and Civil Rights. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
Where Our Power to Execute Our Natural Rights is Perfect, Government has No Legitimate Jurisdiction
When the Forces for War are Greater than the Forces for Peace   Then the World is in Danger
Politics is not a Dirty Word. It is a Way of Life. How is Your Way of Life Today ?

Catchy Tune too

She Was Poor, But She Was Honest


She Was Poor, But She Was Honest

She was poor, but she was honest,
Pure unstaind was her name,
Till the local squire came courting,
And the poor girl lost her name.

     It's the same the whole world over,
     It's the poor what gets the blame;
     It's the rich what gets the pleasure;
     Ain't it all a bleedin' shame?

In that rich man's arms she fluttered
Like a bird with broken wing;
First he loved her, them he left her,
And the poor girl got no ring.

So she ran away to London
For to hide her grief and shame,
But she met another squire,
And she lost her name again!

Standing on the bridge at midnight,
Throwing snowballs at the moon,
She said, "Sir, I've never had it,"
But she spoke too bloody soon!

Standing on the bridge at midnight,
Picking blackheads from her crutch,
She said "Sir, I've never had it,"
He said "No, not bloody much!"

See him in the House of Commons,
Making laws to put down crime,
While the victim of his passions
Crawls away to hide her shame!

In a rose-embowered cottage
Where her ancient parents live,
Sipping Guinness that she sends 'em,
Yet they never can forgive!
