Some Pride - A Little Peace

Mining in the swamp of worthless opinions contained in the myriad of words Joe occasionally finds a valuable gem. "Guernica has lessons for the present" doesn't sound like much of a prize jewel does it? Well, it is!

This is a thoughtful, well-written commentary by Ellen Taylor in the June 24, 2008, Times Standard's "My Word" that addresses something every American needs to deal with. That "something" is absolution.

Read what she says here

This countries legitimate right to exist is founded, not on men preaching trust and hope, but on law; law supported and justified by The United States Constitution. A simple truth that is lost on a country that practices anarchy, mob rule and enforces chaos within and abroad. That Law makes every registered voter responsible and accountable for what their government does and does not do, whether they like it or not. In other words, their failure to enforce the law makes everyone complicit in the crimes of the lawless whether it be the government or some thug beating his wife. More importantly, killing innocent people in the guise of war is murder regardless the intent or motivation. If there was ever a time for the American people to stand up, be accountable and justify their legitimate right to exist it is now. Otherwise, everyone could find themselve beyond absolution.


  1. Most overtly political art is not good, but Guernica is a masterpiece. It's displayed in an Annex of the Prado (in its own building). It is worth the trouble to go view it.

  2. I'm sorry, but I don't get the anonymity. Richard

  3. Quote: "I'm sorry, but I don't get the anonymity. Richard"

    Joe's purpose for "anonymity" is noted at the top of his blog: "Making Comments Count"
