Redwoods in the time of Politics

Insignia posted this picture of the Redwoods in her wonderful blog B Log

There appeared to be some meaning to a tree daring to lean sideways, in a world of conservative trees growing straight up to reach the sky. (Being a UC student 40 years ago sort of put things in perspective :-))

Republican trees,
taking the pledge,
a bit
on the wayward
going across,
what they think
is the wrong way....

Whether its
Meg Whitman
or Arnold,
you still
to stand up
and put that hand
across your heart....

You need
"democratic" branch...


  1. The Republicans are so funny, when the economy is good you say let’s all celebrate “Cinco de Mayo, my brothers” but when the economy is down “it’s all your fault, you damn immigrant”. When most Americans (with Latin America roots) go to the polls this November we will remember that the GOP has gone on a nationwide rant in proposing and passing several anti-immigration legislation (that our US Courts continue to strike down) and have continue to blame the immigrant for the flat economy or worse. We will remember who stands with us and who stands against us, so trying to stop it now is somewhat funny, but go ahead, you will not change our minds. Plus the more radical of the GOP are now attacking our Constitution and our Bill of Rights, in a misguided attempt to garner some much needed votes, they really are fools, and leading the GOP towards obscurity because they are no longer a party of ideas, just of empty suits. Your hate made you do it, in November; you will reap what you have sown. I wonder what Abraham Lincoln would say about todays GOP, he unlike the current GOP was a man of ideas.

  2. Now I understand how you ended up with such a different perspective :-) Thanks for giving a place for my picture on your blog space :-)

  3. Your writing about politics as I get over a bad fall. When I look at your entry - all I see are the beautiful towering trees.
