So God Made A Farmer, by Paul Harvey

And on the 8th day, God looked down on his planned paradise and said, “I need a caretaker” — so God made a Farmer. God said, “I need somebody willing to get up before dawn, milk cows, work all day in the fields, milk cows again, eat supper, then go to town and stay past midnight at a meeting of the school board” — so God made a Farmer. “I need somebody with arms strong enough to rustle a calf and yet gentle enough to deliver his own grandchild; somebody to call hogs, tame cantankerous machinery, come home hungry, have to wait lunch until his wife’s done feeding visiting ladies, then tell the ladies to be sure and come back real soon — and mean it” — so God made a Farmer. God said, “I need somebody willing to sit up all night with a newborn colt, and watch it die, then dry his eyes and say, ‘Maybe next year.’ I need somebody who can shape an ax handle from a persimmon sprout, shoe a …

Two Horses

Several years ago, my Father sent me a copy of this short story by an unknown author. I printed it out, though later misplaced the copy. Now found, here it is… Two Horses Just up the road from my house is a field with two horses in it. From a distance each looks like every other horse. But if you stop your car, or are walking by, you will notice something quite amazing. Looking into the eyes of one horse will disclose that he is blind. His owner has chosen not to have him put down, but has made a good home for him. This alone is amazing. If nearby and listening, you will hear the sound of a bell. Looking around for the source of the sound, you will see that it comes from the smaller horse in the field. Attached to her halter is a small bell. It lets her blind friend know where she is, so he can follow her. As you stand and watch these two friends, you’ll see how she …

Censorship of Radical Islam From War On Terror Lexicon

Pursuant to the recent murders by “radical Islamic terrorists” of staff at Charlie Hebro a satirical weekly newspaper in France, many people and organizations alike have sought false security beneath the blanket of political correctness, cowering in fear at any such utterance used to define the ideology undergirding these acts of atrocity. Choosing instead to use such terminology as “violent extremists”, the contagion of cowardice has spread beyond notable public figures such as President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder, to more common entities – now, including Zazzle. These individual designs were available in the marketplace through Zazzle as print on demand merchandise. Following the terrorist attacks in Paris, each has since been removed…

Intellectual Property Rights

Having recently discovered one of my designs (Ted Cruz 2016) being used on a Facebook site without permission, I contacted the user by email, and then again later through Twitter requesting that the unauthorized use of my design be discontinued. With no reply after a week, I contacted Facebook directly and filed an intellectual property right violation report. After providing the appropriate information as evidence of ownership, Facebook responded swiftly by removing the aforementioned design within the hour – thanks Facebook!
