Ellen Has Great Values

I was utterly impressed by Ellen's articulation of the values by which she lives. We all live by our values. They are synonymous with our actions. If we understood this better we would have better values all around. The final sentences of this video tell the tale.

We Are Our Values

Revaluing Values:
"The "fruits" by which we are known rise from our values Forgiveness is such a fruit It is the product of tolerance and helpfulness Of democracy and non-idolatry These four are the fundamental values of Abba's Way And by inference the fundamental values of the teaching And the example of Jesus I spell this out because fruits differ from values Values are the inevitable result of having a will and living from day to day We are our values"

Good Grief, Senator Grassley Speaks Truth!

House Republicans Cut an Ethics Bill Provision - NYTimes.com: "Senator Charles E. Grassley, Republican of Iowa, who wrote the provision on political intelligence, said: “It’s astonishing and extremely disappointing that the House would fulfill Wall Street’s wishes by killing this provision. If Congress delays action, the political intelligence industry will stay in the shadows, just the way Wall Street likes it.”"

And Eric Cantor is transparently a blathering hypocrite whose place in history will hopefully be as a mendacious Republicans who facilitated the worst defeat ever suffered by that party in a national election.
