What do you think about a move among some Tennessee lawmakers in the state Senate to legalize switchblades and knives more than four inches long?

They want everyone to kill each other, that's the only reason I can think of for all the (stuff) they're doing. Potentially more places you can have guns, helmets optional when you ride a motorcycle and now switchblades for all. They could care less about anything important.

— Tori Novitski


First it's guns for everyone, now any knife you want to carry, as well. Are the people in Tennessee's Senate all complete idiots wanting to play cowboys and Indians?

— Jim Kershner


Wish our hired people in government used their time for something really worthwhile. They need to get their priorities rearranged. Do they even know what important items to discuss?

— Linda Harmon


Is our state government really getting this stupid?

— Amanda Phillips


The legislature has run out of gun laws to change so they have moved to knives.

— Maria C. Mitchell

The Fable of the Gadgets That Controlled The Mind (January 25, 2013

John said there are the dense that are already dumb and aphonic. The speechless mind thus has become lost with no recent or early heart-warming conversion.

A heart out of sync thus renders a mind that has lost the heart and placed ill found trust in unconscious simpleton that also reaches deep into contemporary technology.

The Willows Whistle in the wind while the Spirit in the Wind blew and looked upstream.

I overheard in the great forest of a wicked plan to control the temporary minds of the weak and the frivolous. The night birds were heard singing about the fools that rush out but never in. There was much mind control and gadget control. So one day the dogs and cats in the house of the human subjects looked and watched. They had heard their brethren all through the humane forests tell of an obsession the world has never seen.

Did the obsession rival or was it greater than the great vices of illicit sex, drugs, alcohol and gambling? Many birds in the field flew high and low singing sad songs that had at one time been glad songs. But the snakes we are told claimed great freedom in texting, surfing, facing books, tweeting not like a bird mesmerized with a great obsession with the gadget age.

Meanwhile the Monkey and Baboon Kingdoms who had previously migrated to America although they left some of their brethren behind tried to bring some clarity to a way of life that had many positive attributes that had gone astray. A handsome Gorilla called SBOJ had created or invented the talking phone.

Monkey Do now entered the conversation an asked SBOJ the following question: “First of all SBOJ should I address you as Mr. SBOJ or King SBOJ?”

“Well Monkey Do I don’t want to seem to be puffed up in pride so just call me Brother SBOJ. I never want to have anyone to think I am superior to anyone even the human subjects.”

“Ok Brother SBOJ, great I got that right. So tell me as I will surely inform Monkey See who will tell all of the animal kingdom even the snakes who will surely tell all of the human subjects….Why did you create the cell phone that has made transition after transition to even talk?”

“Well my Brother Monkey Do in the jungle where I was born and raised in the Land of Burnt Animal Faces we needed more advanced communication. The human subjects came to eat the meat of many of our brethren and to take trophies. The trophies by the standards of the human subjects meant the head of especially our brethren the great Lion and Tiger. These were our beloved brethren who we love dearly. They also wanted to try to put many of us in caged prisons as side-shows for other human subjects. This was a zero zone we called the ooz.

Meanwhile we first invented a weapon called a gun to ward off their constant intrusions into our homeland. But a few years before we came to America we began the development of a hand carried means of communication with our brethren.”

King Cobra our narrator had a heavy heart because so many members of the snake kingdom had lived up to their name they had carried since the days of Old.

“Brother SBOJ I have heard other members of the founding families say that the talking phone allowed the animal kingdom to better protect their homeland from the human subjects especially when other wicked snakes sold them guns.”

Another Wise Owl simply called Z spoke to Lone Wolf and his brother Grey Wolf as Moon Dog watched and listened.

Z said …”With the talking phone all of the members of the animal kingdom knew exactly when they would be attacked by the evil human subjects who tried to terrorize any animal of the field every chance they got.”

Brother SBOJ we want to know more about just how the talking phone grew and developed over-time? Therefore give us some more background on the historical development of the talking phone?

“Well brethren the talking phone that was developed overtime was not intended to be bitter passion mired as deep as frog’s bottom in the obsession that we see today. For example just like the gun it was meant for the betterment of life within the animal kingdom but human subjects abuse everything. They produce or create nothing but when we create anything it is stolen and then abused by the lost nation among the human subjects who have no regard for life among the subjects called human nor anyone resting peaceful in the animal kingdom.

Monkey See, Monkey Do and several Baboons who were twins were now engaged in a great conversation and debate. The twin Baboons Do Right and Do Good told Grey Wolf and Lone Wolf as Moon Dog listened that… “SBOJ further developed the talking phone as he and most of Monkey and Baboon Nation fled the hot burning sun in Africa for America. They talked over these phones only when necessary because by nature and the Creation they had no frivolous genes or inclinations.”

Beloved as I sit down and cry I reach out to the entire snake kingdom. I declare that there are some good snakes as was my father King Cobra before me. However, once again more than once some members of the snake family in Africa and America plotted to steal this device. Being lost to temporary things they could steal copies that had been made by our hidden manufacturing conglomerate that made many of our communication devices. The great Owl Z still hooted, the birds cried out, many dogs barked and a Lone Wolf late at night and early morning howled at the human subjects and the Moon.

Meanwhile, this device of great communication was sold to many human subjects who mis-used the phones with many cells just like they abused the gun. The gadgets continued their journey to cyberspace. Is cyberspace outer space? We all had not only heard but knew about another time and space. All of the gadgets were no longer needed and no one would know of the gun. There would be many deep cool Indian Springs as we stood up eating the fruit and nuts from the field. The bosom was seen in the Creator as we all were to eventually rest there.

Peace and Golden Paradise, Brother Carl A. Patton writing for the FreedomJournal Press Thursday 7 March 2013 in the year of our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus.
