What’s shakin’ at Rodzart 11-19-2010

Hi Folks. Happy Friday! I hope everyone has had a good week. I’m certainly looking forward to having my first unscrewed-up weekend in a long while.

We actually don’t have anything ready to photograph this week, but we do have a couple that are pretty close, including this year’s Christmas painting. You’ll just have to be patient until next week to see it though. One of those is an oil on canvas color field work. It seems the paint in taking an inordinate time to dry, even for oil, but I’ll get it photo’d for you as soon as I can.

As I mentioned last week I have loaded a bunch of auctions onto eBay, so I hope you’ll take a look at them. The link is down toward the bottom of the blog. I also have over 60 auctions going on ArtByUs right now, so that’s a nice place to look for Christmas gifts too.

I was thinking about adding an anti-TSA rant this week, but there are plenty of far more articulate people than me doing that right now. I will however mention that since airports were exempted from the constitution, and that was a quite a while back, I have avoided flying just as much as I can. Up until lately most folks thought I was just being a cranky, uncooperative old fart, but it looks like now people are beginning to see what I’ve been talking about.

The thing to remember is simply this: no government has ever had any power which it did not abuse. It’s just that simple. That’s why some of the wisest men who ever lived sought to limit the power of government when they wrote our constitution.

I don’t know how anyone else feels, but for myself, I’m more afraid of the US Government than I am any terrorists.

Here’s a little quote from Patrick Henry to some up how I feel about this.
“Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God!
I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!”

As I’m sure most everyone knows, there is a cholera epidemic going on in Haiti. One of the groups fighting that disease is Doctors without borders, one of my most respected charities. There aren’t the doctors most of us know, who won’t lift a finger to help unless they’re being paid. Doctors without borders are a dedicated group of REAL doctors who put medicine before profit, which is why I support them. So maybe this week, how about passing up that jumbo pizza or frappachino, and instead send that money to help Doctors without borders fight for humanity. The link is Doctors without Borders.

I’m also on Twitter
Myspace and
Facebook
Look me up there if ya feel like it.

I hope everyone has a peaceful and prosperous week. See ya next time.
