Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Thursday, October 22, 2009

...in the power of words…they are stronger than any weapon

...Richard and Mayumi Heene should be forced to pay every penny expended by the rescue groups who spent hours chasing an empty balloon and the costs associated with the interruption of air traffic at the Denver Airport

...there is love for everyone – keep your head up or it might walk right by and all you will have seen is your feet

...people who do not say thank you when you stand and hold a door for them – men or women – belong to the rudest group of humans

...an extended hand is a true sign of peace

...in the old adage that it is a sad you need a license to drive a car, but not one to become a parent

...as Richard Fulghum stated: “Peace is not something you wish for; It's something you make, something you do, something you are, And something you give away.”

...they need to rename the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame to the Music Hall of Fame - when you induct Donna Summer and even Johnny Cash, you are not about rock & Roll, you are about Music

...that BlogBlast For Peace should be included in Wikipedia and that after this year – with the inclusion of people on Facebook - we will inundate them with requests and finally get it done

...Roman Polanski must pay the consequences for his actions 31 years ago – time does not remove your guilt

...the smallest act of kindness can start a tidal wave of emotions

...anyone whose life and philosophy is based along strict political lines is doing the world an injustice and should be marginalized

…All we are saying is give peace a chance

Peace Globes can be found on Facebook and Twitter and Bloggers Unite and iPeace

I added this because I know i have a bunch of Mayer fans here and well, all you need is your video cam, or cell phone with video or a Mac with built in iSight...

  4. "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the sons of God." Matt.5:9

    It's not an entirely new concept...just sayin'

  5. Ken Says:
  6. Well, your certainly not going to get any arguments from me. Except maybe Polanski. Yes he was way older than the young girl, yes he was found guilty, OK no argument, he should pay, but I don't get how a guy who just turns 18 bonks a 17 year old and he can get the axe for doing it.

  7. Schmoop Says:
  8. The pen is mightier than the sword. Unless of course, one is involved in a back alley knife fight. Cheers Vin!!

  9. I believe...Johnny Lennon was on the right track...

  10. Jay Says:
  11. Change the name of the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame to the Music Hall of Fame? Good idea. Either that or kick the non-rock 'n rollers out. ;-)

  12. DRILLERAA: Not a new idea, but one that should continually be promoted

    MICKEY-T: !8 yr old bonking a 17 yr old I agree - that is crazy..Roman...HE is crazy

    MATT-MAN: McGuiver could win that fight with a pen

    PHFRANKIE: I believe he was also Sir

    JAY: Well, since they are already in, I discounted that option...

  13. BeckEye Says:
  14. ...the children are our future. Teach them well and let them lead the way. Show them all the beauty they possess insiiiiide.

    Sorry, when someone says "I believe," I can't resist finishing the thought with those sappy lyrics. :)

    I'm totally with you on the holding the door thing, though. I always wish I could rewind and slam the door in those ingrates' faces.

  15. Dianne Says:
  16. excellent list of 'believes' Bond

  17. I give this post an Amen and Hells Yes (being equimenical and all) and totally agree on the Music Hall of Fame.

  18. I believe you are a man of wise words today, my friend.

  19. BECKEYE: Sheesh girl...come up with something else - LOL

  26. Mike Golch Says:
  27. I agree with you on repaying the expences for the hoax that they pulled off.
    Great posting.I hope that you have a blessed day today.

  28. Travis Cody Says:
  29. You can count on my vote on changing the name of the Rock and Roll HOF to the Music HOF. Donna Summer? Sorry. I like her, but disco definitely does not equal rock.

    Even iTunes knows that.
