1. I’m somewhat of a grammar, spelling, & pronunciation nazi. Today’s pet peeve: sell & sale. They aren’t the same word. They do not sound the same. They do not rhyme. If they rhyme when you say them, then:
2. “Lord, search my heart,
create in me something clean.
You see flowers in these weeds. ” – Reese Roper
I hope He does. My life’s rather weedy right now. I’m not in a very good place, spiritually, and I don’t know why. It’s like looking out a tinted window. I can see the sun, but can’t really feel the warmth. This will require some action before I drift any further towards apathy.
3. Ireland is awesome. They are currently the only country with the gonads to stand up to the European Union’s borg-like assimilation mission.
“The Irish electorate has rejected the European Union’s Treaty of Lisbon. Irish television says 54 percent voted against and 46 percent for the treaty in Thursday’s referendum. Ireland was the only EU country to hold a vote* on the issue.”
That’s right, they let the people vote on an issue that directly affects their lives.
“Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowan did his best to persuade people to vote in favour of the treaty which was designed to strengthen the EU and streamline its institutions. However, opponents said it would give too much power to Brussels and could affect Ireland’s neutrality and abortion laws.
The ‘no’ vote signals crisis in the EU as the treaty can only implemented if it is ratified be all 27 member states. It has already been ratified in 18 countries.”
Good for you, Ireland.
To finish it off, how about some Jewish reggae/rap? I agree, mother. That’s a fantastic idea. Here’s some music. With a video. Matisyahu is just plain dope. His rhymes are tight, and the lyrics are beautiful poetry.
I apologize for the ringtone spam at the bottom of the video. That’s the only copy I could find that allowed embedding.
* The word plebiscite has been changed to “vote” for simplicity’s sake.
