PLEASE READ: If People Were Countries.....

If People Were Countries.....
(or, how to avert nuclear war, public or private)

remember, everyone, when things get heated, to CALM DOWN.

there is a point in any conflictual communication where one feels one absolutely must raise one's (virtual) voice, lose one's cool; where not to do so is a detriment to oneself and the meaning in one's life.

soon as the emotional barbs are answered in kind, one might as well give up. 'Innocent until proven guilty' -- how one feels and where one draws the line of acceptable stretching of the truth is not as important.

-- 'to protect my honor' or to 'back up my principles' or 'to protect' others -- worse, to 'not lose face' --

these are the game changers, the seemingly unique and rare set of events that will suddenly convince a large number of people to get involved, people who steadfastly opposed getting involved up to that point.

sound familiar?

My Stumbling Days Are About Over!

Stumble has turned off my account it would appear. The last 6 weeks have been really difficult getting stuff up.
I put up the Make sure your Congressman see's this before November of the father holding his child with a brainless open skull plus the article about the IDF bombing an orphanage and the dairy that supports it. A couple of minutes after that I can't get into my account or post anymore!
Stumble has been turning off sites and individual webpages left and right and it has really gotten bad since Gaza and Ukraine.
If I can get back up I will but if not I hope I directed some traffic to WRH and all the bloggers who post here and we woke some more people up!
DRIP! DRIP! DRIP!as we slowly wash this mountain of hate,injustice and inequity into the oceans!

IN TIMES OF WAR: A PRAYER FOR PEACE - CLAIRE K. RIVERO

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am reposting Claire's video as the US invades Iraq for the third time, Kiev fakes an invasion by Russia, Libya's US puppet rules are driven from office, and a new flood of TV commercials hits the corporate media networks reminding all 18 year-olds that they MUST register for selective service.

THE OAKLAND PALESTINE SOLIDARITY MURAL

resented by Art Forces, the Estria Foundation and NorCal Friends of Sabeel, the Oakland Palestine Solidarity Mural is a monumental work of public art located in Uptown Oakland on 26th Street between Telegraph and Broadway. The mural pays homage to the history of Bay Area public art and expresses solidarity with Palestinians as bombs continue to fall on Gaza.

The Oakland Palestine Solidarity Mural adopts the image of the tree as a central motif and global visual signifier to link seemingly disparate issues and distant locations. Spanning 157 feet and reaching 22 feet high, the mural is comprised of nine separate panels, where each artist or team of artists has painted his or her own interpretation of a tree to address social and political issues.

British band launch "Massive Attack" on Israel at Longitude Festival in Dublin

Award-winning band and veteran political activists Massive Attack used their headline slot at Longitude Festival this weekend to highlight their solidarity with Palestinians in Gaza.

The musicians played at Marlay Park, Dublin, on Sunday, kicking off their set with ‘Battlebox’ before using their backdrop to send out messages to the packed audience.

As the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) continues to bombard Gaza with air strikes while Hamas fires rockets into Israel, Massive Attack used its position to show its long-time support of Palestinian freedom.

A lit-up message behind the performers said: “Gaza has been ocupied [sic] or under restrictions since 1948.”

The group also displayed the number of lives lost in Gaza, the Irish Mirror reports, during a performance of ‘Unfinished Sympathy,’ which was met with huge applause from the crowd.

SEEGER FEST FOR PEACE

Pete Seeger, who died in January, was a modern-day troubadour for social justice who was on the frontline of every key progressive crusade in his lifetime. Peter Dreier pays tribute to a great artist and human being.

‘TO everything, there is a season,’ Pete Seeger’s song, ‘Turn, Turn, Turn’, taken from the Book of Ecclesiastes, tells us. ‘A time to be born, a time to die.’

Seeger died on 27 January at 94. In the spirit of that song, he spent his time on earth planting, healing, laughing, building, dancing, loving, embracing and advocating peace.

Kyrie Eleison - Anti-War Music Video - CLAIRE K. RIVERO

I am reposting Claire's video for two reasons. First, this is a message that needs to get out to the world about how war is cilling innocent children.

Second, the latest revelations from Edward Snowden include confirmation that the NSA "tinkers" with view counts on YouTube videos to keep videos contrary to the war agenda from going viral.

SHAMELESS PLUG FOR MY LOVELY WIFE

Claire Rivero's music website.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I decided to take a look at some of the older music videos we have put together around Claire's music. I was surprised that "Kyrie Eleison", one of the anti-war videos, is almost at 15,000 views on YouTube!


"In Times of War", another anti-war video, is over 10,000.

These numbers are not bad considering the subject matter and the fact that we do no promotion, other than mentions here at WRH, to get the word out.

Claire's music website is called "Melophila", a noun meaning an obsessive love of music, which certainly describes Claire as she has continued to compose in a variety of styles during the twenty years we have been married.

Needless to say, because of her affiliation with me, her music has met "resistance" in the more conventional venues one associates with a career in mujsic, but as the numbers on the above YouTube videos show, she is being listened to by a lot of people!

If you sing, or even better conduct a choir or have a jazz band, please take a moment to listen to some of Claire's work and if you like it, pass it along to others who might appreciate this kind of music.

Italian cuts spark fight at the opera for La Scala

Scuffles have erupted outside Italy's famous La Scala opera house in Milan during a protest against proposed funding cuts to the arts and education.

Opera house workers from across Italy were rallying peacefully ahead of a protest speech by conductor Daniel Barenboim when trouble broke out.

Students clashed with police wielding truncheons and using teargas, and 14 officers suffered minor injuries.

The audience inside applauded Barenboim for his impassioned defence of culture.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The globalists wanted global government and global economy, and to get it, they needed global poverty. But now the plan is understood by the people of the world, and the plotters may just have set the stage for a truly global revolution.

Every half century or so, it seems the world is cursed with a few individuals who want to stand atop a pyramid built to their own glory and scream how they are the rulers of the world, and that no sacrifice of other peoples' lives and money is too great a price to pay for the attainment of that dream. It is happening again right now with a clique of sociopaths who want to bring about a global government through lies, deceptions, and enforced mass poverty, because they believe that whatever gods they sacrifice to want the world to be that way. Such true believers will never admit they are wrong, indeed history shows they cannot ever admit they are wrong, and the long train of revolutions stretching back to the dawn of time illustrates just what happens when such fanatical self-indulgence meets the real world.

Sanity restored: Philadelphia puts ‘Christmas’ back in the village

Sanity restored: Philadelphia puts ‘Christmas’ back in the village
By Daniel Rubin
INQUIRER COLUMNIST
I'd like to thank Mayor Nutter for saving Christmas.
Wednesday afternoon he announced that the city had over-reacted in changing the name of the traditional German Christmas Village on Dilworth Plaza to simply "Holiday Village."
"Christmas Village" it will be once again.
And here I had been ready to bury the decision.
Why not? Pulling the word "Christmas" off the sign over the village gate seemed ridiculous Tuesday afternoon when I walked around that dollop of Deutchland outside City Hall, sampling the hot nuts and sizzling bratwursts, and oggling the tiny elves and fat Santas.

Steven Spielberg: Body Snatcher–A Review of the Miniseries “Band of Brothers”

The 9th episode of Band of Brothers, titled “Why We Fight”, represents an unprecedented level of ambition — to claim America’s WWII sacrifices as motivated by the desire to save Jews from Nazi persecution, to make America’s sacrifice in WWII all about the Jews, not about Americans doing their duty in a tragic internecine conflict.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We know this spin is a complete lie because present day Israel shows absolutely no gratitude for the sacrifices America made to stop Hitler in WW2.

WERE “THE CHOSEN PEOPLE” PICKED FOR THEIR VIRTUES OR VICES? - Khalid Amayreh

Perhaps the Roman Catholic hierarchy has woken up to the fact that tens of thousands of Palestinian Arab Christians are forced to leave their ancestral homeland as a result of the brutality and oppression stemming from the ongoing Israeli occupation.

More than two thousand years ago, the frenzied multitude rejected Jesus because they thought he was going to rob them of their “chosen people” status and equate them with the rest of mankind. Today, 2000 years later, under the same chosen people rubric, Palestinian villagers, Christians and Muslims alike, are still being chased, assaulted, and hunted down “because they don’t belong”.

Jews, jazz and socialism

Gilad Atzmon deconstructs the mindset of Mike Gerber, a self-proclaimed Jewish "socialist" who believes that there is a distinctive genre of music called "Jewish jazz", and asks why "Jewish jazz" should be any more acceptable than "Aryan classical music".

Gilad Atzmon: Jews, Jazz & Socialism

How would you feel about a Radio show specialising in Aryan classical music? How would you feel about a radio show that features mainly, or only Aryan composers and performers?

I guess that I know the answer: you would feel disturbed, and you may even want to protest.

However, Mike Gerber, a writer for the ‘Jewish Socialist Magazine’ and a member of the ‘Jewish Socialist Group’ has a very similar agenda -- he is about to launch a ‘Jews only’ jazz radio show.

Jazza festival highlights breadth of support for Palestinian struggle

Gilad Atzmon argues that the breadth of support shown for the Jazza music festival, held in London on 12 and 13 October, demonstrates that the extent to which the tide has turned in favour of the Palestinian struggle, which has now become "part of Western collective conscience".

GILAD ATZMON: FROM SCALA TO WEMBLEY

It occurred to me a while back that as far as Palestinian affairs are concerned, the tide has indeed changed -- The struggle of the Palestinian people has now become a part of a Western collective conscience. We are a mass movement becoming increasingly aware of itself. At our last week's first Jazza Festival, leading artists of all genres united together with an audience from all walks of life to side with the Palestinians. In the Scala London, we stood together, protesting against Israeli brutality. Funds were raised for the Free Palestine Movement, an organization that challenges many aspects of the occupation, and will soon bring the all important question of the 'Right of Return' right to the heart of Tel Aviv.

Joe Sobran: Martyr for truth by Stephen J. Sniegoski

What was especially noteworthy about him, however, was his penchant for intellectual honesty. Joe Sobran sought to pursue truth, even when it would lead to the destruction of his brilliant career and ultimately contribute to his early death. Specifically, it was his violation of the taboo pertaining to Jewish power and the U.S. Israelocentric foreign policy that led to his fall. In the 1980s, Sobran was the rising senior editor at William Buckley's National Review, and he seemed to be destined for a brilliant future. But owing to pressure from powerful pro-Zionist Jews such as Norman Podhoretz, that future never materialized, and Buckley ultimately fired Sobran in October 1993.

Interview with Carlos Latuff
by Kourosh Ziabari
Independent freelance journalist, Iran
CL: In 2006 a website associated to Likud (Likudnik) published a long article about me, my art, my support to Palestinians and labeled me as an agent at the service of a supposed "Iranian propaganda machine", comparing me with Nazi propagandists.... Along the Palestinian cause I also support human rights organizations against police brutality in Brazil. This kind of activism alone could put me in high risk of life. But, as I said, I don't care; I will continue with my artistic support, 'cause if Zionists worldwide are pissed off about my cartoons, it's because I'm doing something right. Death can stop me yes, but not my cartoons.

Apple iPad art: paintings created using Brushes, ArtStudio and Sketchbook Pro apps

These works of art could easily be mistaken for oil paintings or watercolours - but they've actually been created on an iPad. The pictures were created using fingers and apps such as Brushes, ArtStudio and Sketchbook Pro. The device is attracting established artists, who are abandoning canvases in favour of the 9.7-inch iPad screen. And some iPad prints are being sold for hundreds of pounds. Corliss Blakely, 59, was one of the first professional artists to put an iPad painting on the internet. An artist for much of her life, she had worked with traditional oil paints before switching to the less traditional medium. Now prints of her work can be bought for up to £220

Officials at the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), which runs the show, say confused birds could fly into the reflective surfaces, risking fatal injury.

Margaret Atwood Cashes In

By Jennifer Matsui

Novelist Margaret Atwood’s decision to travel to Tel Aviv to share a literary prize worth a million dollars has ignited a controversy in which the septuagenarian author and vice-president of the literary human rights organization PEN International has come under fire by Palestinian rights activists. Ms Atwood’s acceptance of the Dan David Prize, whose previous laureates include Al Gore and Tony Blair, is viewed by Ms Atwood’s critics as a betrayal to the ideals she supposedly represents, and an unwitting endorsement of Israel’s race exclusive policies.

In the most lopsided home-video victory in recent memory, "Avatar" catapulted to the top of all three national video charts during its first week in stores.

According to the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert sales chart, the next biggest-selling release of the week was "Crazy Heart," which sold just 5 percent as many copies as "Avatar," followed by "The Lovely Bones," which finished at No. 3 with 2.9 percent of "Avatar's" sales.

Delaroche's Execution of Lady Jane Grey: Royals to the slaughter

It's clear that when Delaroche shocked the Paris public in the 1830s, what he was really ­doing was presenting them, indirectly, with the mayhem of their own very recent revolution. The death of Lady Jane Grey had taken place centuries before; it provided a safe space for ­contemplation, allowing onlookers to meditate on the cruelty of history.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is not unlike Arthur Miller's "The Crucible", which although set at the time of the Salem Witch Trials was in reality a commentary on the McCarthy anti-communist purges that wrecked the careers of everyone who refused to support the creation of a cold war against our WW2 allies the Soviets.

The canvas was a wedding present for Carla, whom Pal describes as an "adorable girl" who has helped to bring father and son closer after years of estrangement.

Gilad Atzmon views Joel and Ethan Coen’s film “A serious man”  as “a cinematic allegory of Jewish cultural detachment from nature” and “a masterpiece that elaborates on the abnormalities of the Jewish tribal existence”. It “reflects on Jewish Diaspora life, Jewish segregation and the misery of operating within the kosher tribal template”.

"'A serious man' does not explicitly touch upon issues related to Israel, Zionism, occupation, organ harvesting or anything distinctly identified with the Jewish state... Yet, [it] portrays a clear message regarding Israel and Zionism, for Israel is the Jewish state and, in spite of the Zionist promise to erect a civilized nation, Israel functions as a Jewish ghetto and is subject to all the symptoms of abnormality conveyed by the Coens."

White House Christmas decor invites criticism

Ornaments including an orb depicting former Chinese leader Mao Zedong and another showing drag queen Hedda Lettuce

Designer Simon Doonan, who was in charge of organising Christmas decorations at the White House, did not respond to calls for comment. Neither did the White House.

Sand drawing the world's largest single artwork

Big enough to contain over 176 Wembley Stadiums, the giant drawing by Jim Denevan is visible from 40,000 feet up in the sky.

Taking 15 days to complete, Mr Denevan and a team of three colleagues worked day and night on the stunning piece in May of this year, which has a diameter of just over three miles.

Containing more than 1000 individual circles, Mr Denevan, 48, built up the giant circle using a roll of chain fencing six feet across pulled by a truck round repeatedly to dig into the desert sand.

Thankful on Thanksgiving

While many Americans attempt to be thankful for anything in these trying and evil times, I am truly thankful there are people like Mike, who has created this site to fight for truth and decency against the murderous, hateful, worst examples of our species.

As we remember and reflect upon the gratitude we feel for the wonder that is in our lives, and the people whose talent, love, and inspiration guides us, this is for Mike Rivero, a true American hero and a beacon for the world.

Thanks MIke.

The series "Connections" was mentioned by a caller a few days ago. This part of the series mentions something quite deep about how with prosperity the lower classes were able to enjoy life rather than fight wars (for their feudal masters). Very interesting.

When Ancient Artifacts Become Political Pawns

Egypt’s chief archaeologist, Zahi Hawass, announced that his country wanted its queen handed back forthwith, unless Germany could prove that the 3,500-year-old bust of Akhenaten’s wife wasn’t spirited illegally out of Egypt nearly a century ago.
Mr. Hawass also recently fired a shot at France, demanding the Louvre return five fresco fragments it purchased in 2000 and 2003 from a gallery and at auction. They belonged to a 3,200-year-old tomb near Luxor and had been in storage at the museum.
But Jewish groups and prominent French and German intellectuals (not the Israeli government, though) campaigned against Mr. Hosny. When asked in Egypt’s Parliament last year about the presence of Israeli books in Alexandria’s library, Mr. Hosny said: “Let’s burn these books. If there are any, I will burn them myself before you.”

So Don't Give Hacking A Bad Name, Yo! (poem)

So Don't Give Hacking A Bad Name, Yo!

Like (at our best) hackers, our wings far from untested,
effective per accindens, though improbably guessed at;
more impossibly intended, (in practice) depending, per...haps
on our ablity to sense it - if - it's initially mapped.
no: philosophies without hammers, no, nor dreams lacking anvils,
status threatening, can strike at the hearts of immortals:
haven't they stayed enough staid enough stated, and - quo -
alterii vadis, warranto, quorum, quid pro

reason enough (should reason persever) to know & to will & to dare demand never
ever be told odds that one changes if clever.

Obama says 9-11 victims were "sacrifice?"

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said the president would "speak about what the day means and the sacrifices of thousands, not just at the Pentagon, but in Pennsylvania and certainly and most obviously in New York".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am linking to the cache of this story because this particular quote has already been expunged from the story.

From a reader: Isn't the whole idea about sacrifice is that it is to be something of value to the person giving it up? A nation "sacrifices" it's young people (its future) in war for the "greater good of protecting the nation". Parents make sacrifices for their children (they give up some things important to them in order to provide for their children) Ancient priests convinced their followers to give up a beautiful young woman or man to appease an angry God.

POTUS, I don't believe, is inclined to make these kind of semantic errors, he is well-educated and very well spoken. I can only believe that this means he is admitting that victims of 9/11 were sacrificed by those in the American Government who saw it (and continue to see it) as necessary for the greater good.

The creation of "terrorism" has been an excuse for a rapid evolution of sophisticated weaponry in the US military and the assault on Saddam - televised globally - gave the world the message that the US has technological superiority over all other nations and solidified their position as a nation to be feared and obeyed (at least that is what they hoped).

100 Artworks From the Top Digital Artists in the USA & Canada

Hydro74 is a Orlando based designer, otherwise known as Joshua M. Smith. The soul purpose of my career is to push the boundries in doing what I feel is relevant to the market as well as extract various elements and trends to be able to offer them up in my own personal work. But let’s be honest. I do what I love because I love it. Not because I have to do it, nor am forced to do it, but rather passionate about doing what I do. I firmly believe in having set style tones, yet a sense of diversity to make any various project unique to the demands that are set forth."

The Chop Shop.. (Is that kidney kosher ?)... blues.

The Chop Shop.. talkin' blues

I went to see my Rabbi, I’d been felling kind of sick.. Does he know a doctor who might cure me real quick?.. I met the good Doctor the very next day, He said my kidneys were shot, so how much could I pay?. I said plenty because, I’m selling ecstasy , So he told me of a place that would be just right for me.

The clinic door was open, this place must be Blessed.. I walked right in and sat on down in the chair next to the desk.

They had row of lungs, and corneas on ice, the donors wouldn’t need them in paradise.
I saw rows of freezer chests and cases; one of freezers was for transplanting faces.

Obama Posters On Government Property Allowed; Anti-Obama Posters Called “Vandalism”

In the wake of a Florida news station covering the “vandalism” of Obama as Joker posters going up around the country, Infowars has discovered an Obama quote published in The Washington Post thanking Obamanoids for posting the artwork of Shepard Fairey on government property. Fairey created the now famous image of Obama used during the election.

“I would like to thank you for using your talent in support of my campaign,” Obama wrote the artist last year. “The political messages involved in your work have encouraged Americans to believe they can help change the status quo. Your images have a profound effect on people, whether seen in a gallery or on a stop sign.

Feral Houses

Like some of the dogs I've seen using these houses as shelter (I followed a whole pack into #9 last week), these houses are reverting to a wild state, as from domestication, a word derived itself from domesticus (the Latin for belonging to the domus, or house). Now these houses are feralis. They belong only to the dead.

Astronauts Watch Star Trek Movie From Space

NASA officials fulfilled the wishes of a Star Trek fan who didn’t want to miss the premiere because of his space journey. They beamed the movie to the International Space Station. Three astronauts enjoyed the special preview of the movie at the station.

US astronaut Michael Barratt requested this movie before he boarded the space shuttle in March. He told NASA officials that he was a big fan of the Star Trek TV series and didn’t want to miss J. J. Abrams’ Star Trek.

NASA officials agreed and reformatted the movie so that the astronauts at the station can watch it on their laptop. NASA beamed the movie to the station on Friday morning.

Critique of Israel not anti-Semitism: Margolyes

One of the things that I didn't expect was that the Australian Jewish community would find it impossible to have a dialogue.

Is this play critical of Israel? Yes, it is, very critical of Israel. That doesn't mean it is anti-Semitic.

Can theatre make a difference? I hope it can, because otherwise I have wasted my whole life in something irrelevant.

Controversial play about Israeli history getting Canadian premiere

A controversial new play about Israeli history that has been slammed by some as anti-Semitic and praised by others as thought-provoking is set to make its Canadian premiere in Montreal on Sunday.

"Seven Jewish Children - A Play for Gaza" is a 10-minute performance by British playwright Caryl Churchill, inspired in part by the most recent Gaza conflict.

The play includes several scenes where Israeli adults ponder how they will explain key moments in Israeli and Jewish history to their children, who are never seen on stage.

The chronological work begins with the Holocaust and ends with the recent Israeli offensive in Gaza.

Swimming Without a Suit - And Masterbating in the Pool - Little Tommy Friedman

The New York Times [Tom Friedman gets this week's boner award. He pathetically draws on popular clichés handed down to his likelier recipients -the Long Island dead and dying Mall culture -from none other than the likes of the Market Shill from Omaha -to wit - "only when the tide goes out do you find out who is not wearing a bathing suit." So true, -says Tom Friedman.

Spare me the underwater farts -you asshole-Friedman.

Tom gives us this too: There are millions of kids who are in modern suburban schools “who don’t realize how far behind they are,” said Matt Miller, one of the authors. “They are being prepared for $12-an-hour jobs — not $40 to $50 an hour.”

A song to keep you going #1

First in a series of songs that inspire "us."

This one by Phil Collins hit me like a ton of bricks - I distinctly remember where I was and what grocery store I was in and what aisle where I really "heard" it playing over the grocery store speakers. I don't want to suggest Collins is some sort of fellow traveler of ours, but geez, these lyrics make you wonder a bit.

"they don't tell me nothing - so I find out what I can"

"there's a fire burning right outside my door."

"seems so long I've been waiting - still don't know what for."

"cause I've been a prisoner all my life..."

"mine's an ordinary life"

"they don't THINK THAT I LISTEN, BUT I KNOW WHO THEY ARE"

A Request from Michael Moore

Friends,

I am in the middle of shooting my next movie and I am looking for a few brave people who work on Wall Street or in the financial industry to come forward and share with me what they know. Based on those who have already contacted me, I believe there are a number of you who know "the real deal" about the abuses that have been happening. You have information that the American people need to hear. I am humbly asking you for a moment of courage, to be a hero and help me expose the biggest swindle in American history.

All correspondence with me will be kept confidential. Your identity will be protected and you will decide to what extent you wish to participate in telling the greatest crime story ever told. --MM

No choice but to speak out - Israeli musician

"I was born in a place that happens to be very strategically crucial to quite a few empires, and I was indoctrinated to take part in these idiotic wars and I managed to escape eventually. When I was there I started to see the scale of the atrocities that are committed on my behalf by the Israelis in the name of the Israeli state, with the support of the Jewish people around the world.

"Now and then you hear about one Jew here and one Jew there who is against it, but institutionally this war is supported by world Jewry inside-out."

STOLEN PAINTING

This painting, "THEMIS - THE LADY OF JUSTICE" attracted quite a lot of attention when it was first finished and offered for sale. The artist was especially fond of it. A bidder from Singapore offered $27,000 US, and he accepted. It turned out that the bidder was a cheat, and used stolen credit cards to pay for the painting, and used an U.S. governmental mailing address overseas. The painting has disappeared and the criminal bidder can't be located. The artist was especially fond of this painting, and wants it to remain part of his life's work. So, he is now recreating it. The first painting has been reported as stolen and, if it ever appears again in public, he will report it and attempt to have it confiscated and destroyed. If you have seen this painting, please let us know.

A violinist in the Metro

This article has haunted me since I read it last year.. In other words, the greatest artists in the world never get recognized, because they are not connected to the Jewish artists co-op with booking agents and promo people.. In other words.. Why don't we look at the Jewish Zionist connections of the talent that is out there?..

The Art game is the same game as the News Game.. Only Jewish Zionist artists are allowed to make the Big Time, or 'Become News Anchors'.. Or Movie Stars for that matter.. Unless you are connected to Zionism/Communism you go nowhere in America.

The greatest modern up to date paintings in the world are in thrift shops with a price of a hundred bucks cash.

A violinist in the Metro

Joshua Bell playing incognito in the metro station was organized by the Washington Post as part of an social experiment about perception, taste and priorities of people. The outlines were: in a commonplace environment at an inappropriate hour: Do we perceive beauty? Do we stop to appreciate it? Do we recognize the talent in an unexpected
context?

One of the possible conclusions from this experience could be:

If we do not have a moment to stop and listen to one of the best musicians in the world playing the best music ever written, how many other things are we missing?

The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County

Anyone in his education who has neglected to read every word Mark Twain ever wrote has simply missed the greater part of the meaning and opportunity of life. Twain is reputed to be The Great Man of American Literature, but this appreciation of him, while true, misses the mark or this truly great man.

To fathom the greatness of a truly great man, a sufficient lapse of time must pass before he is far enough away from us so that we might measure the greatness of such a great man.

Alexander the Great by this measure quickly gained his fame.

Poetry Contest!! A Crunch Into Niemoller’s Credit

First they came for my holiday home
and I didn’t speak up,
because I couldn’t afford a break anyway.

Then they came for my new car
and I didn’t speak up,
because I didn’t have the money to fill the tank.

Then they came for my fridge
and I didn’t speak up,
because I couldn’t find the cash to buy some sausage and mash.

Then they came for my pillow,
and I didn’t speak up,
because I couldn’t put my mind to rest.

Then they came for me,
but with no debts to pay back I was a penniless hack.
They moved on,
and left me alone.
