My "namesake" Thomas Lawson was an important writer throughout Will Rodgers era.
My dad Thomas Lawson Bunnell was born in 1918 about the time of "the Black Plague" when millions died the world over including two of my uncles on my moms side.
The "Great Depression" or "The Great Depression" occurring in 1929 I believe.
It was an entirely different lifestyle in those days.
The basic politics and issues were the same.
Just like our government separated from the King in 1776 and thereabouts, the people wanted to separate from our government controls the same way.
We had all once been free.
Business people and banking from London had taken over the America's from 1776 on and before.
Trade was everything.
Money and wealth and power.
Coal Barons and Oil Barons and Steel Barons and Logging Barons and Tobacco Barons and Alcohol Barons and Coffee Barons and Chocolate Barons and Cotton Barons .
The list goes on and on and on.
Divvying up the worlds resources and labor for the rich man.
The same old song but it's true.
The Republican Christian Bankers and the Democrat working man.
Slaves to the system.
"Free Slaves but slaves none the less.
You had to have food and rent and credit to live.
I don't understand all this stuff myself a lot of the time and how and if applies today.
The wealthy are still in control I know that and they control and are a part of our government offices.
Those government paychecks controlling everything from armies to courts to laws.
The President and Congress and the Senate and The House of Representatives.
The House of Commons and Parliament I am sure.
It's hard for me to understand.
The Civil War when both sides government created armies of commoners fighting and killing one another, each for his respective government.
The North and the South.
Yankees and Union Soldiers.
Killing millions throughout the battle zone.
Minnesota and right here in Detroit Lakes had many soldiers fighting for the North and Abraham Lincoln.
It's hard to fathom all this stuff but I know today that our rich are still divvying up the worlds resources and manpower.
It's the same thing as always.
All the Kings Horses and All the Kings Men.
The same ol shit.
Say anything and you are seen as treasonous.
Punishable by death.
That's a fact.
Chastised and ridiculed and beaten before that..
By the masses.
Mobs of commoners fighting for the "Kings".
Right here in America today.
"Stockholm Syndrome" I call it..
There is a better way.
I don't know what it is but I know there is a better way.
It's all stimulant drug bullshit.
That's what I'm trying to get across.
Pure bullshit stimulant drugs.
Sugar and caffeine and alcohol and nicotine..
That's hard to believe I know but it's the truth.
Pure stimulated instincts.
Instincts gone awry for thousands of years now..
I'm just a common man.
I am not Will Rodgers or anything else.
I just accidentally made this discovery.
