They sat together in the park
As the evening sky grew dark
She looked at him and he felt a spark
Tingle to his bones
'Twas then he felt alone
And wished that he'd gone straight
And watched out for a simple twist of fate
They walked along by the old canal
A little confused, I remember it well
And stopped into a strange hotel
With a neon burnin' bright
He felt the heat of the night
Hit him like a freight train
Moving with a simple twist of fate
A saxophone someplace far-off played
As she was walkin' on by the arcade
As the light bust through a beat-up shade
Where he was waking up
She dropped a coin into the cup
Of a blind man at the gate
And forgot about a simple twist of fate
He woke up, the room was bare
He didn't see her anywhere
He told himself he didn't care
Pushed the window open wide
Felt an emptiness inside
To which he just could not relate
Brought on by a simple twist of fate
He hears the ticking of the clocks
And walks along with a parrot that talks
Hunts her down by the waterfront docks
Where the sailors all come in
Maybe she'll pick him out again
How long must he wait?
One more time, for a simple twist of fate
People tell me it's a sin
To know and feel too much within
I still believe she was my twin
But I lost the ring
She was born in spring
But I was born too late
Blame it on a simple twist of fate
How about "you" yes, Y O U ? Could jump on write something good, sure of it.

Video is set to play the Brian Clough comment. Conveys authoritative insight, and in seconds, says 'loads'. Not at all into football. Well, not for forty years, (and counting).
Falsification is especially the fact in the case of the so-called Civil War. The name itself is a falsification. A civil war is when two sides fight for control of the government. The southern states that seceded did not fight for control of the US government. They fought because they were invaded. The northern states fought to prevent secession. Nothing in historical documents is more clearly established. Yet the War of Northern Aggression is falsified as a war to free black slaves from southern racism, despite Abe Lincoln’s many assurances to the contrary.
That the War to Save the Union had nothing whatsoever to do with ending slavery is totally clear from everything Lincoln said prior to his presidency and during his presidency. The evidence is overwhelming. Consult the War Aims Resolution, Lincoln’s letter to Horace Greeley, Lincoln’s speedh in debate with Stephen Douglas, Lincoln’s First Inaugural Address, the Corwin Amendment, the Emancipation Proclamation.
In the US Constitution slavery was not a federal issue. It was a state issue until the 13th Amendment in 1865. The issue between the North and South was not slavery. On the surface the issue was the tariff. The deeper problem was that the North and South had different cultures. They were really different nations. The South was agricultural. The North was industrial. The South wanted free trade. The North wanted protection from British manufactures. Northern elites wanted the South to subsidize northern industry with higher prices.
The northern elites also wanted empire. They did not want a second country competing for the lands west of the Mississippi River. The northern elites were determined that the South remain part of the United States. 20/07/20.
Lincoln destroyed the federal republic established by the founding fathers, and he destroyed the Constitution that protected it. He violated every provision of, and every Amendment to, the Constitution. He then rewrote, in effect, the Constitution and left the 10th Amendment out.
The Lincoln regime was a dictatorship. Lincoln disregarded US law, the US Constitution, every right of the people, the power and authority of judges, and even exiled a US Representative. DiLorenzo writes that “freedom of speech was virtually nonexistent in the Northern states for the duration of the Lincoln administration.” Lincoln ordered the arrest and imprisonment of everyone who disapproved of his invasion of the South or made the slightest criticism of him. There were mass arrests of citizens and news paper editors of northern states. A minimum of 38,000 citizens of northern states were imprisoned without due process.
Lincoln committed treason against the Constitution when he suspended Habeas Corpus. No such power resides in the presidency. Only Congress can suspend Habeas Corpus even in the case of rebellion and invasion. 21/07/20.
Graham’s evidence that hatred was intentionally fomented in order to stimulate a war is circumstantial, but strong. Graham focuses on the questions of who financed John Brown’s raid on Harper’s Ferry, who financed the marketing of Harriet Beecher Stowe’s propagandistic novel, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, and turned it into an international best seller, and who financed the expensive and long drawn out legal case of Dred Scott? These are honest and important questions. Graham also stresses the role played in fomenting armed strife in Kansas by Stephen Douglas’ modification or repeal of the Missouri Compromise with the Kansas-Nebraska Act in 1854. 22/07/22.
