liberties lost

Dann wirst du älter, machst deinen Abschluss. Bist endlich frei und gleichzeitig total verloren, weil alles neu beginnt und Altes aufhört. Vielleicht ist das der Punkt, an dem du neu anfängst. Und vielleicht fangen auch wir neu an, aber so einfach wie das alles klingt, ist das Leben nicht.
Founding Fathers as your family.

Benjamin Franklin: 69 year old grandfather who everyone is just waiting to die. He tells lots of dirty jokes and gets bad looks from all the soccer moms. You love him because he lets you drink and talks serious sex. 

George Washington: 54 year old uncle who everyone praises. Honestly he doesn’t ever want to go/host family gatherings but when he does he ends up being the BBQ’er. Pretty much talks shit about everyone when they leave.

John Adams: 48 year old uncle. Nobody talks to him, literally. Always brings up politics at the dinner table and you hear him barging into people’s conversations to say something super problematic. You’ll catch him drinking from a flask and not even hiding the fact that he is. 

Thomas Jefferson: 17 year old cousin. You’ll hear his Mom yelling at him to sit up straight or what the hell are you wearing. Everyone obsesses over all his many talents. He hates attention and doesn’t really talk. He is a music hoe.

James Madison: 12 year old cousin. You thought he was 8. Everyone always asks him if he’s okay- he’s never okay. He talks to quiet for you to hear but you pretend you’re listening anyways. You’re too afraid to touch him.

Alexander Hamilton: 14 year old cousin. Fuckboy alert. Probably one of the hottest people you know- too bad he’s your cousin. He is super into politics and is always fighting with Uncle Adams. You’re constantly venting about how much you hate him but like you don’t. He won’t shut the fuck up. Once beat up Uncle Adams when he was 4 and won.

James Monroe: 15 year old cousin. This is your nice cousin. Like your best friend cousin. Like the you’re-super-sensitive-and-tall-holy-shit cousin. He is so sensitive and you just wanna tell him to understand a joke. When the cousins get into fights *cough* Thomas *cough* Alexander- he’s always the one to step in and get everyone to calm the fuck down because Alexander is fucking rolling up his sleeves shit- fuck and then Adams steps in cuz that little bitch is always looking for a fight.

Liberty Lost

We are flattening the globe
Fattening our sacrificial lambs
Battening down the borders’ hatches

Turning science into fiction
Water into slime
And slime into fodder

The true version of truth does not compute
Our house of ill repute
Is too Old World for AI eyes

The whirlygig machines agree with these new efficiencies
Disregard the real conspiracies
Make renegades of refugees
And police the free

Death to liberty
Death to libery
We have become the puppets
Of an automated regime.

“Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.”

Why The Russia Investigation Matters And Why You Should Care
Questions to three respected military, law enforcement and intelligence officials revealed why it's important to get answers to Russia's role in the 2016 presidential election.

“Well, for the last 241 years, the nation and the citizens have cherished the freedom and liberty upon which this country was founded upon. Many brave Americans have lost their lives to protect that freedom and liberty and lost their lives to protect the freedom and liberties of other peoples around the world. Our ability to choose our elected leaders, as we see fit, is, I believe, an inalienable right that we must protect with all of the resources and authority and power.

"And the fact that the Russians tried to influence resources and authority and power, and the fact that the Russians tried to influence that election so that the will of the American people was not going to be realized by that election, I find outrageous and something that we need to, with every last ounce of devotion to this country, resist and try to act to prevent further instances of that. And so, therefore, I believe, this is something that’s critically important to every American. Certainly, it’s very important for me, for my children and grandchildren to make sure that never again will a foreign country try to influence and interfere in the foundation stone of this country, which is electing our democratic leaders.”

Liberty was so confused when she received Mak’s text, or at least she was confused when she reached the address she sent her. What the hell kind of legal advice would she need here? She shook her head as she stepped onto the mini golf course searching for Mak. Once she found her, she threw her hands up a bit. “What’s going on?”
