"Peace on Earth..."
(46 Responses so far...)
Amen to that, Steve. Longfellow's lugubrious yet hopeful Christmas message from the Civil War era seems apt (working from memory here).
"I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old familiar carols play
And wide and sweet the words repeat
Of Peace on Earth, good will to men
But in despair I bowed my head
There is no peace on Earth, I said
The hate is strong, it mocks the song
Of Peace and Earth, good will to men
But then I heard a message come
From belfries throughout Christendom
That hate shall fail, and right prevail
With Peace on Earth, good will to men"

The perfect expression of good will is to greet someone who has just clicked their mouse with a gorgeous picture of home. The somewhat less perfect, but certainly holy, expression of good will is to devote so much of your life to justice for all. Brad hugs us all as his way of life. Use your ballots, and hug Brad back.
Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah!
Peace, warmth and love to you all this Holy Day season.
Thank you Brad! And all of the rest of you wonderful people. It is good to be a citizen and fellow patriot with you.

A One World Community is a nice concept but it will never happen. If the world unites with one government, one religion, one army, etc., then I'd say there would be no place for Jews (or any other people deemed hated by the masses) to run.
Long Live America!
Matthew 24:6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
24:8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

I am asking a favor here of all the good folk of goodwill here at Bradblog. Please do not post messages of anger here. Even if someone posts something provocative. This is a thread of Peace on Earth, Goodwill to our fellow humans. Savor the beauty and peace you have accumulated this holiday season. Brad, maybe you could start a thread for those with hardened hearts to post. A grinch, humbugger thread :0)
For those of us who are filled with the wonder, joy and miracles of this tender season, make this one thread a thread to honor that sacred stillness.
For Jo: Lovely thought. At the risk of sounding angry, though, I'd say that the most provocative remarks come from people who profess Christian ideals while making them. What would Jesus say?

Who is posting anger here?
Tony Trupiano, Democratic candidate for Michigan's 11th Congressional District will be guest hosting America's number one Progressive talk show, Ed Schultz, Monday December 26 to Friday December 30. The show broadcasts from 3pm to 6pm.
Tony has arranged a great week of guests and topics.
Monday the Honorable Democratic Representative John Conyers Jr. will be one of Tony's guests. Rep Conyers has most recently introduced the motion to censure bush and Cheney:
Ranking House Judiciary Democrat Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) has introduced a motion to censure President Bush and Vice President Cheney for providing misleading information to Congress in advance of the Iraq war, failing to respond to written questions and potential violations of international law, RAW STORY has learned.
Rep. Conyers is a great Democratic representative, always in the fight for all of our rights. He should be a great and interesting guest.

MERRY X-MAS AMERICA!
Dec 24, 2005
In these days we see the works of God fast making way and inroads to the hearts of more and more Americans waking to the horrible situation our nation is in. We see more and more righteous voices standing and declaring there is truly something wrong with the direction this country is headed. And the works go on in the prayerful hopes that we the free may keep our dear country and continue to grow in so many positive ways. We have the knowledge to heal the nations of the world.
Give thanks and honor to those that have gone before us in this war for freedom and Godís shining way. Such greats as Joe Vialls and Paul Wellstone who were murdered by the evil cabal running the ship aground. Little do these wicked would be tyrannical Zionist puppeteers realize that when they murder the innocent, they send them to the place were they become more of a problem then they realize. When the soul passes on, and is judged to be worthy, which the righteous innocents always are, they either immediately incarnate again to be a more powerful force in the near future, or they join the force of the whole and empower this holy spiritual energy that becomes that very energy of God that makes all good works manifest. It's very related to the X-mas spirit one ingests this time of year, as if it were the smell of fresh bread and pastries or any other physical stimuli in the matrix that makes one charm inwardly. A total influence on the emotions and mind in a joyous way to be sure. Little do those that manifest darkness realize that in doing so, they actually empower an opposite and equal cup of good forces. God bless those that are in-filled with the holy spirit of God and the Force which is Love. Yes, this may be the very name of that Force for truly God is this energy force and this is Love. God is Love. Love is the eternal creational force. Love is all and all are One!
They speak about going after those ďlone wolf extremists" and this unholy government has declared war on its own citizens. This false war used as the excuse to bring on the antichrist global conquest plan. Well wasnít that great teacher Jesus Christ a lone wolf extremist? Is it not right to emulate the Christ? Let's all emulate the teachings of the Christ and enjoy the same thing olí ROSE has. That is God and there is never a "lone" time for which there is only gratitude. When One is aware of the presence of the spirit of God, there is never a "lone" feeling, only a sacred connectedness of truth and humbling Love. God is Love. This divisionism ploy is just another reinforcement of Babylonís diseased thinking that there is division in Godís world. We are never alone for the Law of our material bodyís connection and the Law of our spiritual connection is absolute proof of our relatedness. There is no division. Division is the dis-ease created by man, not God. Like evil, created by man, not God.
As the fire smoke lingers in the cold winter mornings warming the hearts of Americans across the nation, letís not forget the globalists pulled off the Asian tsunami the day after X-mas thus shredding the sacredness of this holiday seasonal time. They can strike anytime especially when the season historically permitís a kind of unwritten stand down in homage to the holiday season. Let us not turn from our vigilance and fight harder now then ever to save America from such a similar disaster.
Todayís paper had a article in it titled,
White House issues tsunami alert plan
12/24/2005, 4:32 a.m. CT
By JOHN HEILPRIN
The Associated Press
How does this operational event go? A sudden shifting undersea and all of a sudden we have Grand Dragon Bush Sr. and his ever faithful lapdog Clinton with their tin cups in hand playing the poor victims sympathy card on the unsuspecting sheeples. They beg you to send your money to their private offshore accounts to further their financial support for the weather weapons and HAARP systems use. How sad is it when the dark forces donít realize the primitive behavior pattern is so easy to predict, and especially with the information to substantiate this possibility of another planed disaster event for lets say maybe, the west coast. We have already heard rumblings in the matrix about the possibility of a tsunami hitting LA! Pray oh good hearts that they donít throw this one at us.
Pray for the good and righteous to find God in the heart and act according to what your hearts instruct. Pray that justice soon comes for our salvation from the evil that runs rampant in the leadership of this nation. If, that is a BIG IF we get to the next elections, we are going to see a change for the better like never before. If we make it to the elections, many of the scumbag congress and senate critters are going to be ousted for their support of this evil empire and unconstitutional laws passed like the patriot act. There are so many more evil laws they have passed and are trying to still like the bill S-1873 allowing the big Nazi pharma companies to escape justice for the purposefully planed killing of so many people with tainted vaccines.
Please keep up the fight to enlighten for truly knowledge is power and when guided by the love in your heart, there is no greater force in any universe. Blaze with the spirit of God in this Christmas time everyone out there in matrixville!
Be the Love you were born to be!

I celebrated past few days offline, surrounded by family and lots of food, so my good wishes for Christmas/Winter Solstice/whateverfloatsyerboat may be considered a little late.
I want to send wishes to all of you (and that means EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE) for the New Year:
May you have a warm, dry place to sleep...may your stomach and heart both be full..may you find yourself far from want and even farther from need...and may your house never be big enough to hold all those who love you.
To all of you...love... light... and above all...peace.
Thank you, Joan. Our friend Paul asked, "Who's posting anger here?" in response to mine and Jo's.
But my posting spoke of PROVOCATIONS THAT INSPIRE ANGER, not to anger shown in responses to such provocations. Paul wasn't paying attention. That's O.K. Maybe he will next time.

I tried to think of why your loyal readers (including me) love you. What is it you do that is special so that your way of doing it brings us back read after read.
It's something like this: You really do humanize the news! When the news is dry, you juice it up. When the news is scary, you hold our hand. When the news we are being fed is not really news at all, but doubletalk , you send out the alarm. You have opinions, concerns, passions and you give us "the news" with a liberal dose of all those. You bring the news alive.
Thanks Brad, with a special thanks to all the loyal Bradovians for being there! (and don't forget to donate a few dollars to Brad to keep it all going. I'm writing my year end check to Brad today)
Happy New Year!

I tried to think of why we love you, and what brings us back read after read. On reflection, I get that it is the way you humanize the news. If the news is dry, you juice it up; if the news is scary, you hold our hands; if the news is doublespeak, you alert us to pay attention; you have passions and concerns and you give us the news with a liberal dose of those. As a result, you bring the news alive!
Thank you for that Brad, and for nurturing your loyal readers with that great image of the planet. You warm our thoughts instead of letting us shiver in the chill of ignorance.
