John Prine That's How Every Empire Falls

That's How Every Empire Falls
R. B. Morris

Caught a train from Alexandria
Just a broken man in flight
Running scared with his devils
Saying prayers all through the night
Oh but mercy can't find him
Not in the shadows where he calls
Forsaking all his better angels
That's how every empire falls

The bells ring out on Sunday mornng
Like echoes from another time
All our innocence and yearning
and sense of wonder left behind
Oh gentle hearts remember
What was that story? Is it lost?
For when religion loses vision
That's how every empire falls.

He toasts his wife and all his family
The providence he brought to bear
They raise their glasses in his honor
Although this union they don't share
A man who lives among them
Was still a stranger to them all
For when the heart is never open
That's how every empire falls

Padlock the door and board the windows
Put the people in the street
"It's just my job," he says "I'm sorry."
And draws a check, goes home to eat
But at night he tells his woman
"I know I hide behind the laws."
She says, "You're only taking orders."
That's how every empire falls.

A bitter wind blows through the country
A hard rain falls on the sea
If terror comes without a warning
There must be something we don't see
What fire begets this fire?
Like torches thrown into the straw
If no one asks, then no one answers
That's how every empire falls.

Mom's March Campaign for Senators Supporting Kavanaugh

So around midnight EST Sunday I get an Email Thanking me for supporting the Mom's March Movement for Senators Supporting Kavanaugh. WTF???<., Before I ask to be taken off their email list, I demanded to know HOW they got my email since I NEVER sign up for this group. I suggested that if they cannot answer my question, that I would expose them as being a part of a Russian Troll Farm.
They are also on FB, so I message them and asked the same question there, I also pointed out that my email to their return address "momsmarch@homemakersforamerica.com" bounced back to me as an "Unknown Address". I did write some really nasty stuff in both communications but I am tired of this BS.

In the pass year the NRA sent my DEAD Dad (over a year) a membership kit suggesting his dues were late. My Dad a WW2 vet was Anti-Gun. We weren't allowed to even have toy guns in our house. I wrote to them and suggest that respect an dead WW2 vet wishes and take him off their list

Last Year Michael Huckabee's group called my Parents #, (which is on the Do Not Call List) asking for some Donation for some type of Book. I also wrote to them and they said that they were "Non-profit" and didn't have to go follow that list.

My brother will say that I am overreacting to all this. Has anyone on DU had to deal with this BS???
