Christmas 2007

The Wise Ones looked up & Rejoiced
For they were Ready -
for Change
for Healing
for the Light

So they welcomed the Arrival of ONE WHO KNOWS what is Needed. . .


2007 years later, we need our Family, Neighbors, Communities, Leaders
(and, oh yes, Ourselves)



Compassion Kindness Charity Reconciliation Justice Truth Mercy Forgiveness -- The Golden Rule

Regardless of the Names of our Religions.

And thus we honor our Teacher.

Even NPR Finally Says So

It's been very difficult to forgive NPR for its complete lack of coverage of the hearings in Ohio held by Congressman John Conyers and the Democratic minority of the House Judiciary Committee in December 2004, immediately following the shocking reversal of Senator John Kerry's lead in the polls, the vote, and ultimately the entire Presidential election.

I especially can barely listen to Neal Conan. To understand why, history is beginning to show that his response to an apparent flood of emails seeking real news reporting and discussion seemed to be decidedly patronizing.

BUT TODAY -- MINUTES AGO -- at the top of the 11:00AM MDT hour, NPR announced that the Secretary of State of Ohio, Jennifer Brunner, has announced that ALL of the DRE electronic voting machines used in the 2004 election in Ohio were completely vulnerable to manipulation and could not be trusted.

In addition, NPR reported, this problem also applies to voting machines used in other states as well.

For example - UTAH - RIGHT HERE IN UTAH!!!! GOT IT?!!!!!!!

Those are DIEBOLD machines!!!!!!

At long last, let's all say it.

Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner's announcement and report are here.

Go here to read the article by long-time election 2004 reporters Bob Fitrakis and Harvey Wasserman.

Then demand paper ballots from your own Secretary of State for the 2008 elections.

Al Gore was honored for his Nobel Prize by George Bush in the Oval Office?

OK, wouldn't you just love to see W's face if Gore had shaken W's hand and whispered in his ear, "The jig is up. I'm here for the reins to the kingdom," then just looked him in the eye, deeply, at least for, say, seven seconds - one for each year since the usurpation.

There's a YouTube moment.
