Yourself To Blame
by Mayme White Miller (c. 1936)
If things go bad for you
And make you a bit ashamed,
Often you will find out that
You have yourself to blame.
Swiftly we ran to mischief
And then the bad luck came.
Why do we fault others?
We have ourselves to blame.
Whatever happens to us,
Here is what we say,
Had it not been for so-and-so
Things wouldnt have gone that way.
And if you are short of friends,
Ill tell you what to do,
Make an examination,
Youll find the fault's in you.
You're the captain of your ship,
So agree with the same
If you travel downward
You have yourself to blame.

Jihad vs Crusades
Get the facts before you embarrass yourself, Mr. President.
Here's a former President with a different view:
"No state paper
from a Christian hand, could, without trampling
the precepts of its Lord and Master, have commenced by an
open proclamation of hatred to any portion of the human race.
The Ottoman (Muslim) lays it down as the foundation of his discourse."
John Quincy Adams

"Marching and heiling, heiling and marching. In
him is planted
no seed of laughter, hope, tolerance or mercy. For him - only
heiling and marching, marching and heiling. The grim years
of regimentation have done their work. Now he's a good Nazi.
He sees no more than the party wants him to. He says nothing
but what the party wants him to say. And he does nothing
than what the party wants him to do. And so he marches,
with millions of comrades, trampling on the rights of others.."
that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good
men do nothing."
