Carl R. ToersBijns is the author of the Wasted Honor Trilogy [Wasted Honor I,II and Gorilla Justice] and his newest book From the Womb to the Tomb, the Tony Lester Story, which is a reflection of his life and his experiences as a correctional officer and a correctional administrator retiring with the rank of deputy warden in the New Mexico and Arizona correctional systems.

Carl is considered by many a rogue expert in the field of prison security systems since leaving the profession. Carl has been involved in the design of many pilot programs related to mental health treatment, security threat groups, suicide prevention, and maximum custody operational plans including double bunking max inmates and enhancing security for staff. He invites you to read his books so you can understand and grasp the cultural and political implications and influences of these prisons. He deals with the emotions, the stress and anxiety as well as the realities faced working inside a prison. He deals with the occupational risks while elaborating on the psychological impact of both prison worker and prisoner.

His most recent book, Gorilla Justice, is an un-edited raw fictional version of realistic prison experiences and events through the eyes of an anecdotal translation of the inmate’s plight and suffering while enduring the harsh and toxic prison environment including solitary confinement.

My Country Tis of Thee -Tricked into thinking Doom

My Country Tis of Thee -Tricked into thinking Doom by Carl ToersBijns

 April 8, 2015 (sorry it's another long one but worth the time if you got the dime)
Don’t you wonder sometimes what people are thinking when they see or hear what you wrote or said and that you are standing on the wrong side of the road? Is there a point that comes along somewhere along the line that makes you realize how screwed up they are for making you think you are the one who is doing the wrongful thinking? Don’t they realize it’s them who are on the wrong side of the road?
I know today, whether you live in South Carolina or North Dakota, there are people who refuse to accept or acknowledge that their thinking is wrong and that we are not doomed for an apocalypse or damnation and that if you follow history, this is just another phase of change our country endures as it struggles with the war on drugs, culture, aggression, religion and many more as it comes to us on the high density screen and carried by various major media networks, each telling their own version of the story and the basis for their truth.
Every day, we are told of the dangers caused by extremists around the globe. Each and every morning we wake up to an act or war or criminal passion that devours the Christian soul and the levels of understanding you acquire when you grow up and follow your beliefs and customs to please yourself and others quoting the Golden Rule but very rarely seeing it happening around your own little world.
We petition the destruction of fracking, we want to change the world in climate control and what we eat as our produce and cattle are genetically altered with hormones and substances created my man to make more food, but take in less in nutritional value and impose new limits on our health. We tout our politicians to protect us as they focus on protecting themselves first disregarding our Constitution and making laws that restrict and impede our God given rights and well-earned privileges with excessive taxes and punishments for acts allowed by God but denied by mankind.
We stand our ground to defend ourselves as the cultural mood shifts from decade to decade eroding the soul and breaking the hearts into pieces as families suffer and families divide under the social pressures that races splits and divides neighborhoods and pit cops versus law abiding citizens as the innocent children watch from afar, keeping their play guns out of sight.
Elders shake their heads as they look outside their houses from their obstructed view as they installed extra locks, and iron barred storm doors and windows to separate what the air we breathe divides. Our taxes are spent on foreign wars so the foreign oil can be secured and sold with profits on Wall Street as our refineries are filled with surplus oil and products, yet the price of a barrel stands steady on the rise.
My country tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of whom I sing, where have the churches gone, where are the peacemakers and when will our conscience return back to us as it was robbed one night when Congress passed the Patriot Act and took away our freedom to move from border to border without an ID card in our pockets.
Living from one decade to the next of being black or white has changed colors to red, and brown and many more. There are no barriers in race yet the bi-racial children feel the hate and resentment knocking on their doors.
They can see the fire in the eyes of those who want the perfect race, the abundance of hate-crimes and the intrusive manner government has set the rules to incarcerate every young man of color and either make them join the army, leave the country or become servitudes to the cause and powers in place no matter where they live.
Our country is not at a point of doom, there is no apocalypse and there is no end of the world sign on the street corners. We must all belief there is a God, a loving God, who will bring us back together as one and as we believe the word to be truth and the truth shall let you see the light of what has been spoken of for centuries and always come true.
Yes, we have endured wars, famines, hate riots and lynching of innocents and guilty as we are surrounded by terrorist carrying bombs and explosive materials from one country to another, blowing up planes in the sky and the local market between shopping malls and business trade centers. We’re talking about acts of war and witness poverty around us as the poor remain poor and the rich get richer.
We can’t blame this on Islamic terrorists, although your Congress may want you to feel that way. They want you to focus your hate on foreign soil as our men and women toil the spoils of war for them and those who hired them in their pockets to make more bullets, guns and rockets for the sake of peace and keep the threat of war under control of those who have the power.
You must have guessed by now who are the handful of nut jobs out there, the “lone extremist” and wackos who are telling you the world is doomed. As they endorse the consecrated acts of burning our flag and stomping on our Bible, they falsely hail the banner of righteousness in the name of liberty and justice.
It isn’t just the KKK who are spewing hate and vitriol all around the world. Look around and you will see, it might just be the man or woman you elected to office or the kind neighbor who lives next door. You might not see there motive, their agenda to change the world. But what you know now should open your eyes and believe for yourself that the only doom there is lays silently inside your heart and silent it will remain until you become courageous enough to say it’s over, and that you won’t take this anymore as enough is enough
Take back your political clout and honor. Re-visit your power to vote and make it count. Don’t shed your responsibility to be honest and do what you know is in your heart. Never mind the threats or fear that exists around you. Never mind these doubts or uncertainties you have and speak your mind. Do not paint yourself an apathetic loser and take back what you know was once yours or mine.
These wackos want you to surrender. They want you to quit and raise your hands up high and give them the power to unleash even more hate and wrathful pain through taxes and more constraints. With faith we can overcome every obstacle. Having faith has proven to erase the ability to discriminate if you believe in God and all men are created equal we must stand together and prepare for a long ended fight.
We have to challenge the bigotry, the generational cultural discrimination and the institutionalized level of fear. We can’t stop them all at once but by voting them out of office, one evil at a time, we can conform again to the Golden Rule and paint ourselves as modern day heroes or crusaders as we lift our righteousness sword to the heavens and pledge God Almighty a victorious fight.
I don’t have to wonder, who is wrong and who is right. None of these wackos will ever admit they were in the wrong as that proclamation will not come without a fight. This time it is not about color, this time it’s not about sexual orientation or the wealth in your pocket. It’s not about gaining “religious freedoms” as you have had them all the time.
This time it’s about thinking about tomorrow. This time it’s about our country who has suffered and this time it is about the control we have or forfeit if we give into the will of dominion. For it’s about dominions and not the matter of color, race, creed, belief or orientation. Cast aside those bible thumping thieves in the night who stole your very soul on the pulpit of hell when you gave them control.
This is about your God given right to raise your children. Remember that believing in God is not a religion. It’s not about their satisfaction but what is important for yours. We have given the evil a license to discriminate and they have abused their welcome. They need to move along and either change direction or cast themselves in hell.
Take back our Ten Commandments; take back our nativity scene and praise our Lord’s Prayer out loud in our schools and public places. Don’t let them criticize you without impunity, don’t let the rule over you and call you a lesser man. What is their true intent is slowly showing. Their agenda has been flawed from beginning to the end.
Show your disgust for their license to discriminate. Show your disrespect for their cursing of your rights to co-exist in peace and harmony regardless who you choose to be with in your own house or table. Be careful how you define the agenda of conservatism – be aware of false prophets and the message they bear. We still have the First, the Second, the Third, the Fourth, the Fifth, the Sixth and many more Constitutional amendments to protect us. Don’t give them to the Devil and let them rule their evil might.
If you doubt what I said then ask yourself, “Why are they attacking the ones who call themselves real Christians?” what is it they fear from those who still believe in heaven above? Open your eyes and see how their claim to persecution, is really a ploy to defeat you and your principles by modern day hypocrites and those seeking more dominance from you as you have shown your heart belongs to the real God above refusing to give dominance to them as they strangle you economically, financially, and impose on you a burden, that should have never been blessed from above.
Seldom do I talk about such matters but the time has come to never be silent again. Stand up for your brothers and sisters as the time has come to aid our country, once again, against threats, domestic and foreign, either with words, beliefs, explosive or guns. We must protect America.
