Today Is Guy Fawkes Day!! Indeed. And How Applicable To Our Recent Election.

"There are of course those who do not want us to speak. I suspect now orders are being shouted into telephones and men with guns will soon be on their way. Why? Because while the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power....but again if truth be told, if you are looking for the guilty, you need only look into the mirror....But if you see what I see,  if you feel as I feel, and you seek what I seek, then I will ask you to stand beside me...."
Indeed. And how applicable to our recent election.

I forgot to post this earlier this morning, but it is the Fifth of November. When folks in England celebrate Guy Fawkes Day, do they celebrate the fact that he was hung because he failed to blow up Parliament and kill King James, or celebrate Fawkes because he was hung because he tried to blow up Parliament? Of course, if you saw the film V for Vendetta, you may at least know the name. Anyone interested can of course do a web search for Fawkes, but try this clip from the movie to perhaps get you a little interested. By the way, the film V for Vendetta is supposed to take place in England in a couple of years in the future. The plot line is quite interesting.

Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot....
