Let them eat our words!


This image of Marie Antoinette is meant to go to bloggers who have something to say, who tell the truth. Diva Jood, one of the best word-smiths I know, received it from Utah Savage--another giant among truth tellers. Diva passed it to me. I could not be better honored, for I would die happy if I were regarded as one who spoke truth. Thank you, Diva. This is the best award ever.

We are to pass this on to others who tell the truth. Brevity is the soul of wit. I pass Marie to:

* James at An Average American Patriot. He is anything but your average patriot. Would that I had his zeal for truth. Or even just a portion of it.

* Enigma at Watergate Summer. She is monumental among bloggers. With energy which appears limitless, Enigma commits herself to telling the truth of our U.S. reality--its beauty and its dark side.

* The Poetryman and his team at The Peace Tree. Mark and the group wield truth unrelentingly to wage peace. Peace begins with justice. They write it so well: with poetry and in prose--as well as in video and Photoshop.

*Renegade Eye. A landmark among my blogging reads. His voice speaks a socialist truth.

*SueJ at Nailing Jello to the Wall. Consistently one of my favorite blogs. Great insight. Well written. So much truth: personal, social and political.

Let us all be about truth. We are privileged with education. With access to technology. With enough wealth to have the equipment to speak our truth to the world. Be a voice for the poor. Speak your truth loud and proud. And as for Marie Antoinette, we will not eat her cake. Rather, we will insist that she and her ilk instead swallow our words of truth.

Careful, oh ye Rich and Powerful--do not choke on them.

Can we fill the words with the heads of their predecessors? Think of it as a toy surprise, like the mousetrap in the cake in that old episode of the Little Rascals.

I am a fellow recipient of Jood's 'adoration' and I came by to say hi and well done.

This post is like icing on that cake!!

Congratulations on your award!

Utah Savage said...

Yes, what a good choice you are. Have a little cake and get the blade sharpener out, then pass the head of Marie to the deserving poor.

Congratulations! I was pleased to meet "Watergate Summer" through you, so I will be glad to meet your other honorees today!

Thank you very much. I find blogging rewarding on several levels. I evolved politically because of exposure to many ideas.

Thank You

Thank You B E! You know, I have come to the conclusion that we are all on a search for the truth. We are all covering different levels. I only hope we start making a difference not just amongst ourselves! I like all of you have great hope now with President Obama but you know my concerns.

First, congratulations! You are so dedicated about writing on topics that wouldn't otherwise get attention.

Secondly, thank you! You are much too kind in your compliments! You leave me ... speechless!

You truly do speak the truth that must be heard. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed by all that has to be done to bring justice and peace to this world but we all do our parts and the part you do is so important and needed--thank you.

I finally added you to my feed reader...no idea what took me so long!! I'm looking forward to dispatches from the place where I still wish I was half the time...

BE congratulations on yet another award so richly deserved. I am unfamiliar with all but the last of these new recipients. I shall be off visiting them!

BTW, I finally acknowledged the Scribbler's award you gave me. Thanks.
