Who and What is the Happy Warrior

The Happy Warrior is the title of a poem... and yes, I love this poem. I do not wish to be mischaracterized, for the most part poetry is not my bag. I am not an afficionado of literature nor am I a metro-sexual (I despise that term) but a dear friend introduced me to this masterpiece of prose several years ago... it has provided no end of inspiration. The Happy Warrior by William Wordsworth outlines the qualities of a magnificent soul. I aspire to possess even one or two characteristics that "every man in arms should wish to be."


This blog is a representation, in conversational form, of my voyage to wrap my arms around the world in which Mr. Worsdworth's warrior finds happiness.

Are you kidding me? I pledge my servitude to President Obama... not me, not even if 100 famous Hollywood people tell me to!

I will not have to convince anyone who has read more than three posts on my blog that I am a moral conservative and a political libertarian (except as that philosophy traditionally applies to foreign policy). I am not, however, a partyline republican. I have been very slow to imbue President Obama with some nefarious motivation. I have not engaged in the "Obama as Messiah" accusations put forth by some on the conservative side of the isle. I cannot bring myself to believe that a man is either arrogant enough or self-confident enough to judge himself to be the great deliverer of the people. Only one man filled that role and he did his work about 2,000 years ago and will come back in some future day to call the world to reckoning.

While I have been slow to believe that Barak Obama considers himself the savior of America, I've got to admit that I am becoming more an more cynical. Can he really believe that he is the political grand pubah of modern America? I think he might... and if he does, that scares the hell out of me. What, after all do I need saved from? Other than oppressive governments which seek to make more of the decisions that are rightly mine to make (these are, in fact, the only things I might need some help with from an outside source) the things I need saved from are constraints of my own making and I have power to overcome those without help from the government.

So why am I more and more concerned that Barak Obama really does believe he is the one answer to all of our problems. Because his marketing machine puts out masterful presentations like this:


This piece may be comprised of 95% beautiful goals and worthy objectives but it is difficult to overlook: "I pledge to be a servant to our president!"

No way, not me. Think about it, isn't there something very dark in that statement. President Barak Obama is no better, no different than the least American... in fact the last time I checked he is suppose to be servant to us. Interesting how subtlely and quietly that got turned around. Besides, with all the commendable pledges to "smile more", to "fight diseases" and to "turn off the lights" (all good things) what happened to "I pledge allegiance to the United States of America" or "I pledge to defend the Constitution of this great country" or "I pledge not to have recreational sex that might lead to a child born out of wedlock" or "I pledge not to experiment with narcotics" or "I pledge to read proposed legislation before I vote on it" -what about those pledges? How about, "I pledge, as a father, to take responsibility for the wellbeing of my own family", or "I pledge to turn off my cable, turn in my cell phone and to stop eating out before I look to others or the government to pay for my healthcare, housing or new car because I can't afford these things" or finally, "I pledge to take responsibility for my own education, my own healthcare and I pledge not to compell my neighbor, however wealthy he might be, to surrender his money to pay for someones abortion or to keep the General Moter's unions in business". These are the pledges I make. What about you?

  3. Reading these kind of posts reminds me of just how technology truly is something we cannot live without in this day and age, and I think it is safe to say that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.


    I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as the price of memory drops, the possibility of transferring our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I dream about every once in a while.
