Hey Allison, Happy early Birthday.
on July 28, 2012 at 4:32 pm
It’s funny. This video, and some facts about birthday our actress. She was born 29th july, likes Benito Mussolini, and in Preetz, when was born A.Hitler’s aide-de-camp. What do you think about it? It’s a chance or her crusade?

I would like to wish you a Happy Birthday!
May your birthday be filled with sunshine and smiles, laughter, love and cheer. May this year be your best ever! I hope all your dreams and wishes come true and you will share us, because we miss you!

HAPPY B-DAY Allison !! make it a great one:) so it’s my first time on here/posting, I’ve followed you/the show since junior-high in 2002, I graduated from Florida State last year & just started working in April with the state so I’ve been super busy, buuut I’d be remiss if I didnt get this off my chest on your big day.
so not to reiterate the thoughts of the throngs of other adoring fans’ from the department of redundancy department–but you’re intelligent, insightful, intrepid, dynamic, diligent, conscious, compassionate, proactive, beyond ravishing inside & out, and I’ve ran out of adjectives to describe you lol. but the truth is the words are too small & don’t even come close to elucidating the kind of character you have. in this acrimonious day & age of fear/hate-mongers & misguided critics who congenitally tend to view the glass as half-empty, divide & conquer societies, and cling to stereotypes of other groups foreign to them–your approach of being steadfastly positive is so refreshing…where society is mostly demeaning & succumbs to the forces of cynicism & division; you are affirming and open up to trust & have a genuine desire to listen & help others. as winston churchill once said–it takes tremendous courage to stand & speak up for what you believe in; but it takes even more courage to sit down and listen (smt like that*). you’re a refined woman of broad cultivation, somebody of tremendous intrinsic worth; and the entire world sees it in your eyes & hears it when you speak in your interviews. I mean even in that resplendent smile of yours; everyone can tell what sort of heart you have lol. you’re 100% genuine/honest and that’s so life-affirming. women like you (& Kristen*) make life worth living and the world a much brighter place:)
and don’t think for one single solitary second that the zillions of your supporters are just echoing this to get you complacent/pretentious/ostentatious/big-headed; we just don’t ever want you to stop being who you are, b/c you’ve touched our hearts more than you’ll ever know, you just can’t put a value on that. nothing goes unaccounted for; I truly believe God rewards even the smallest acts of kindness. you’re a redwood among mere sprouts. I love you so much Allison, thank you so much for being who you are (which sounds weird b/c we’ve never even met lol). there are people out there who’ll try to rule the world….but people like you will inherit the earth:) I hope we cross paths one day in this life. happy b-day Allison & I hope you have a wonderful/relatively relaxing rest of the week ! (:

Chaplin was a brilliant man of vision.

Power. Then will our world know the blessings of peace.” – William Gladstone

I’ve lurked here for so long. Allison’s blog (and many of the comments too) have jump-started my creative life on days that life has left me calloused-over. The day-to-day leaves me feeling too dirty to write. Sometimes, I’d read something here and feel oddly refreshed, cleansed and less bogged down. Finally, I’ve decided to put my own drop in the bucket.
The only thing more impressive, more impacting than this speech, has been sharing it with friends. I played it for one person on a quiet night in the pub. It pulled people from dull conversations and even broke the zombie stares from the mounted televisions. After re-starting it several times, we all watched it all the way through.
Instantly, questions and conversations came in a flurry. Two “greatest generation” folks, couldn’t get past the imagery, to the extent that what was being said was lost. Others drew comparisons to President Obama, to both positive and negative result. Even those who didn’t make comment and went back to their beers were now talking about Chaplin or WW2 or the which leader had the best oratory skills. The speech seeded the room. It breathed color into a mundane scene.

I Agree with you, thanks for share. A huge hug pretty muse 🙂 ?

Heh. Killer episode of Wilfred. Martin Van Buren? Even in AP history, he wasn’t the obvious answer to anything! Not even if the question was “who was the 8th president of the United States?” And yes, as a local of the Los Angeles unified school district, I did in fact have to Wiki that.

Hey Allison, I’m just sliding in to say Hi!

So my name’s Matt Haines, I’m a combat medic deployed to afghanistan. Me and my roomates are watching through all of smallville in our spare time and have decided to try and get in touch with our favorite characters. I figured it’s a long shot, but if my favorite character from the tv series we’re watching agreed to be a pen pal for me it’d be worth it 🙂

Pretty epic. I put this one up there with it.
on August 16, 2012 at 12:11 pm
…. … This is certainly a beautiful video with beautiful words… Still reminds us that the progress and peace depend if we want make a change in our thoughts …Thanks for share it .

I LOVE Charlie Chaplin. This was incredible. Amazing what a little music can do to enhance a message.
on August 22, 2012 at 8:07 am
Alas, like all speeches that call for a belief in “science and progress”, it forgets what is the most important characteristic that must encompass it – that which drives and sustains the empathy of man – and that is the Divine spirit that the Most Merciful breathed into him.

Political views presented by Charlie Chaplin are not compatible with European Spirit. They present US-american vision of world, but Europeans have another tradition. USA was made as ‘democracy’, for Europeans is traditional ‘authoritarian system’. USA have ‘presidents’, Europe have kings and kaisers. This is a fact, which American people must know, otherwise American people will never understand Europeans. Written by last real Knight from Europe.

I posted this on my Facebook page about a year ago. I find it terribly poignant and, quite possibly, one of the best “speeches” ever written. It’s refreshing to see someone else admire it and appreciate it as much as I do.

on September 2, 2012 at 2:38 pm
