By Ralph Waldo Emerson
A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do. He may as well concern himself with his shadow on the wall. Out upon your guarded lips! Sew them up with packthread, do. Else if you would be a man, (woman), speak what you think today in words as hard as cannon balls, and tomorrow speak what tomorrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradicts everything you said today. Ah, then exclaim the aged ladies, you shall be sure to be misunderstood. Misunderstood? It is a right fool’s word. Is it so bad to be misunderstood? Pythagoras was misunderstood, and Socrates, and Jesus, and Luther, Copernicus, and Galileo, and Newton, and every pure and wise spirit that ever took flesh. To be great is to be misunderstood.
Isn't it a crying shame that seniors who have saved all their lives, paid in full their properties to live a worry free retirement now live in fear of non judicial foreclouse for having committed no crime. They live at the mercy of an inept, malevolent, useless HOA .
To expose injustice wherever it is discovered!
The best friend injustice has is silence. That is why it is so necessary to speak out when you become aware of a wrong of any kind by anyone. The injustice to your neighbor you ignore today, may become the injustice you suffer tomorrow. That is why I shout. You should shout, too.
Soften Your Heart
by Margaret Tyson
SCCA's hearts are hard and cold
it could be believed that they hate the old.
And the seniors that live in the core
Pay and pay until we're poor.
Our social security income is fixed and low
it doesn't go very far you know.
Up went the fees for 2000, last year
and going up again is what we fear.
We feel abondoned, alone, and lost
We can't afford this outrageous cost.
Is there a better way to get what they need?
do they have to hit us until we bleed?
When we're in the red and coming up short
our frivolous spending we have to abort.
Medication, rent and food are first on our mind
to take that away from us is very unkind.
The SCCA is hurting us where we live
our pockets are empty, not much to give
So soften your hearts and give us a break
We don't have the money you want to take.
Disolve the SCCA. We do not need their abusive management. They need our money!
