Happy Solstice?  Why not?  There are Solstice Sunglasses http://www.solsticestores.com/ Solstice Residential Homes http://www.solsticecollection.com/homes.php, the awesome Pontiac Solstice Convertible Cars http://www.pontiac.com/solstice, even a new Celebrity Solstice cruise ship http://www.cruisesonly.com/ making use of the word. 

Solstice for most of us means the official start of Winter plunging us into darkness and cold, about December 21st.  One wouldn’t know it is still fall with a current Alberta Clipped inundating much of the States today, bringing with it snow and sub zero temperatures.  Winter Solstice 2008 starts Dec 21, 12:04 pm Universal Time and in various time zones:

EST: Dec 21, 7:04 am
CST: Dec 21, 6:04 am
MST: Dec 21, 5:04 am
PST: Dec 21, 4:04 am

You can get complete, exact sun and moon data for any day at http://aa.usno.navy.mil/data/docs/RS_OneDay.php

Daylight is the shortest and thoughts of sugar plums dance in our heads with Christmas coming just a few days after.  Ah Christmas- the most apolitical correct thing to say is Merry Christmas, to celebrate the birth of Christ.  Can you imagine?

America’s history has revolved around a separation of church and state but those intertwined religious factions that have made America a better and sometimes more tolerant country.  Here you are free to believe or not.  The government doesn’t mandate any religion upon her people even though we commonly hear one nation under God- no one says what the God is, or if you have to believe in it.

So now at the holiest hours before Christmas, we have people jumping into the fray of anti religion, erecting signs like this one in Washington right next to Nativity Scenes and holiday decorations. Jeez, ya can’t even say Christmas decorations anymore.   Funny thing is, some one stoled the sign and upon it’s return, they added- Thou Shalt Not Steal, from The Ten Commandments.  Wednesday will see the addition of a “Festivus” pole next in the Capitol.  Festivus was made commonplace in the Seinfeld series. Not to be left out is Hanukkah, the Jewish Festival of Lights and a Jewish menorah is scheduled for display Dec. 18 . http://www.mcclatchydc.com/251/story/57249.html

“The Freedom From Religion Foundation has displayed a similar sign in the Wisconsin Capitol for more than a decade, and has gotten used to this sort of response, said Annie Laurie Gaylor of Madison, Wis., a co-president. For the first few years, opponents of the anti-religious message there turned the sign to face the wall, removed it, and even showered it with acid, she said.” http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/local/6420ap_wa_capitol_holiday_displays.html

Even in celebrating Solstice, there are religious undertones.  So much for the atheist theory to keep religion at bay.  Besides the more famous Stonehenge,  there are megalithic structures throughout Europe that are oriented to the solstices and the equinoxes.  “The Roman Catholic Church gave more financial and social support to the study of astronomy for over six centuries, from the recovery of ancient learning during the late Middle Ages into the Enlightenment, than any other, and, probably, all other, institutions.” The Sun in the Church by J.L. Heilbron, http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0674854330/nightkitchenA/

“Winter solstice was overlaid with Christmas, and the observance of Christmas spread throughout the globe. Along the way, we lost some of the deep connection of our celebrations to a fundamental seasonal, hemispheric event. Many people–of many beliefs–are looking to regain that connection now. I gain inspiration from the universality of the ancient idea–winter solstice celebrations aren’t just an invention of the ancient Europeans. ” http://www.candlegrove.com/solstice.html

Commentator Bill O’Reilly has pointed out that “Seattle now rivals San Francisco for secular-progressive nuttiness. The city fathers are allowing public nakedness in city parks and nude bike riding, and in Fremont, a Seattle suburb, they actually put up a statue honoring Vladimir Lenin, the father of communism.”  He goes on to say, ” a few nuts have a legal right to run down the Christmas tradition in the lobby of the Capitol building. At this point there is little left to say except this: Where are the wise men when you need them?” http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=29795&referer=sphere_related_content

Winter solstice celebrations have been  part of the cultural heritage of Native American Indians, Pakistanis, Tibetans, Chinese and people the world over.  What could be so hard about just keeping the spirit of magic, a promise of peace,  joy to the world, alive for just a few days of the year with out the fringe destroying hope for mankind? 

Today December 7, is the anniversary of the attack by the Japanese on Pearl Harbor.  Thousands lost there lives that day and through out the war.  I imagine the degree to which one believes in a God is exacerbated the one’s closeness to dying.  I believe God meant for us to celebrate the living with simple respect for one another and it seems so very disrespectful to have signs like this, desecrating another’s belief system and intrude on the celebrations. 

December 8th is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, marking the start of the holiday season in many Catholic countries. The Day celebrates the conception of Mary in the womb of her mother and that from her first moment of conception, she was filled with Grace by God. “Exactly nine months from now, on September 8, we will celebrate Mary’s birthday.”  http://www.fisheaters.com/customsadvent5.html 

In these politically charged times, where are all the pro-lifers to comment upon grace being given at birth?   Instead the atheists draw the attention of MSM failing to tie Obama’s abortion record or his associations with Reverend Wright who once professed “God Damn America,” to the season.

It is just all to convenient to choose to ignore the millions who have died in the name of God.  It is all to insulting to those of us who live with God not only on Christmas, but every day. 

God Bless America, even Obama.

Of all the brain washing crap we have been subject to, just in time for Christmas or should we be politically correct and say this holiday season, comes the children’s book, Why Mama Voted for Obama http://littledemocrats.net/Obama.html  http://www.amazon.com/Why-Mommy-Democrat-Jeremy-Zilber/dp/0978668804  http://news.aol.com/elections-blog/tag/Jeremy+Zilber/ 

“Why Mommy is a Democrat” also by Jeremy Zilber looks like an attempt to reach out to the two-year-old bloc. “Using plain and non-judgmental language,” the book’s Web site reads, “along with warm and whimsical illustrations, this colorful 28-page paperback depicts the Democratic principles of fairness, tolerance, peace, and concern for the well-being of others.” Of course, “Democratic candidates and party organizations” will receive part of the book’s profits.

These swipes at The Republican Party might go over the head of kids, but not parents and not over mine. 

If you love your mama, thank her for having you because Obama has promised to continue partial birth abortions so as not to ‘saddle anyone with a baby.’  He is an enemy to unborn children.  http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/77500/barack_hussein_obama_jr_defends_partialbirth.html  There isn’t anything warm and fuzzy about that.

Laying further claim in brain washing, “we are already globalists-in-training and will be full-fledged ones in the not-too-distant future.” http://whitelocust.wordpress.com/2008/11/18/expatriation-in-situ-by-baron-bodissey/  Globalist, me?  No, I am an American and have documentation to prove it in any court of law in the U.S.A. Maybe Obama is in fact the ultimate Globalist in not only his genealogy but his ideals as well.  Our Constitution doesn’t allow for a Globalist as President only a qualified citizen at birth or natural born citizen.  I have little faith that Obama was born in Hawaii, the theory seems to be leaning toward Kenya, far across the globe giving him dual citizenship and making him ineligible and testing the Constitution in the process.  

On last month anniversary of The People’s Temple mass suicide, http://www.thoughtsaloud.com/2008/11/19/marxism-religion-and-kool-aid/ I  I am reminded of the power leaders have over followers and blind faith.  The Nation magazine reported at the time, “The temple was as much a left-wing political crusade as a church. Jones message of socialist redemption was so strong it lulled more than 900 people to “drink the kool-aid.” of stupidity.

Knowledge is power and it is becoming more apparent how such faith in the Obama kool-aid that the government is going to everything for you with a vision of change.  It seems that a new world order with promises of democratic principles, may be coming like it or not, with citizens looking to the Obama administration so solve all that ails them.  All the new faces we were promised with  “Change,” looks like the same ole, same ole with the Clinton and Daschle old school politicians of the world back in power.

Gone will be the day of working hard in America when there is no incentive to do so.   The influences on the youngest members of our society, our children should be mindful that working hard is the best road to success.  The idea that a child’s educational experience will be enhanced by a mandatory two year commitment to community service is a disservice to our youth- say nothing of the 40 year old crowd. 

All kool-aid has been removed from the pantry for the time being.  We will be serving melted snow that is abundant thanks to global climate change.  Snow contains no melamine or artificial ingredients, unless you count what the dog may add to it. 

Oh yeah, Merry Christmas.  This book will not be under our tree and Santa better not bring it either.

The Federal Election Commission Friday[9-8-08] approved payment of $84.1 million in federal funds for the general election campaign of John McCain and Sarah Palin…. In that letter the candidates agreed to abide by the overall spending limit (there are no state-by-state limits) and to other legal requirements, including a post-campaign audit.  Presidential candidates accepting the federal payment are subject to a spending limit of $84.1 million, the amount of the payment, plus a combined personal spending limit of $50,000 from their personal funds.Additional funds may be raised, subject to the limits and prohibitions of the Federal Election Campaign Act, for legal and accounting expenses. http://www.fec.gov/press/press2008/20080908cert.shtml

Obama opted out and has significantly received more donations than McCain.  I wonder, if in part, the reason he chose not to accept federal funds was to avoid some of the legal requirements and possibly to avoid an audit.

Obama’s largest contributors to date is William Budinger to the tune of $30,800.  http://www.opensecrets.org/pres08/search.php?cid=N00009638&name=&employ=&state=%28all%29&zip=%28any+zip%29&submit=OK&amt=a&sort=A 

Who is William Budinger? William Budinger is listed as an active Trusee for the Aspen Institute, his time is now spent helping the Rodel Foundation pursue its education reform objectives.  What are exactly are those objectives, I wonder.  http://www.rodelfoundations.org/aspen.shtml  Foundation recipients are lucky enough to attend “week-long seminars in both China and the Middle East where Fellows will meet with regional leaders and learn about the challenges and opportunities those areas pose for the future of America.”

A Conversation with Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) and Aspen Institute President Walter Isaacson,

http://www.aspeninstitute.org/site/c.huLWJeMRKpH/b.1096989/k.C19/Senator_Barack_Obama_and_Walter_Isaacson.htm

From Obama own lips speaking at the Aspen Institute, “Abortion is an issue that is very difficult to compromise on because people feel very deeply about these issues. And if you believe that abortion is murder, then it’s hard to say, “Well, I’ll admit murder in some circumstances.” You feel that you have to go all the way and fight as hard as you can.”

What is more controversial than Obama’s stance on partial birth abortions? http://www.abortionfacts.com/online_books/love_them_both/why_cant_we_love_them_both_18.asp#partial%20birth%20abortion  His wife Michelle is right in his shadow.  “In February 2004, his wife, Michelle, sent out a fundraising letter, which actually stated her concern over the rise of conservatism in the Country, and that the ‘so-called’ partial-birth abortion was a legitimate medical procedure that should be protected.” http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/77500/barack_hussein_obama_jr_defends_partialbirth.html?cat=9   And, Barack Obama said on July 17th, 2007: “The first thing I’d do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act. That’s the first thing that I’d do.” It will require that the taxpayer fund abortions and remove restrictions on abortion.  You can’t give a kid an aspirin from the school nurse without restrictions and yet, abortion will have little restrictions. 

Getting back to Isaacson -CNN, the network he headed during the Iraq War coverage, he is quoted as saying, “Walter Isaacson, who headed CNN, observes, “The people at Knight Ridder were calling the colonels and the lieutenants and the people in the CIA and finding out, you know, that the intelligence is not very good. We should’ve all been doing that.” If Issacson knew there was some questionable intelligence CNN didn’t report it or question it- Did they?

From its site, “The Aspen Institute mission is two fold: to foster values-based leadership, encouraging individuals to reflect on the ideals and ideas that define a good society, and to provide a neutral and balanced venue for discussing and acting on critical issues.  http://www.aspeninstitute.org/site/c.huLWJeMRKpH/b.493947/k.7AC3/About_the_Aspen_Institute.htm

The Aspen Institute lists Harvard graduated Walter Isaacson as its current President & CEO.   http://www.aspeninstitute.org/site/c.huLWJeMRKpH/b.2253415/k.5A1D/About_Walter_Isaacson.htm Walter Isaacson, the president of the Aspen Institute, is the former managing editor of Time and chairman of CNN and the author of biographies of Henry Kissinger, Benjamin Franklin, and Albert Einstein. 

William E. Mayer is the Chairman of The Board for the Aspen Group with a pretty good resume dotted with being a Senior Partner of Park Avenue Equity Partners, to Credit Suisse, a trustee of the Columbia Group of Mutual Funds, a board member of the Acumen Fund, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and Vice Chairman of the Middle East Investment Initiative. http://www.aspeninstitute.org/site/c.huLWJeMRKpH/b.612715/k.960D/William_E_Mayer.htm

Surprisingly William Mayer he has supported John McCain by making campaign contributions to him.  Oops, he had to take some back.  ANYONE KNOW WHY?

Why is the contribution to John McCain by William E. Mayer shown as being returned?  It is because he is linked to tightly with the liberal Aspen Institute and was pressured into doing so?  Did William E. Mayer violate campaign laws?  Did he over extend himself and the checks bounced?  Did McCain stamp the envelope with return to sender?

On the Board of Directors at The Aspen we find some notable names like, Henry E. Catto, Madeleine K. Albright, and Leonard A. Lauder.  What brand of Lipstick does Sarah Palin wear? Also David Gergen, Robert K. Steel of Wachovia, Roderick von Lipsey USB Financial Services, Frederick B. Whittemore Morgan Stanley, Sidney Harman of Harmon Ind., but the name that really caught my eye besides well known Henry A. Kissinger, being Chairman of Kissinger Associates, Inc.,  was Prince Bandar bin Sultan-Former Saudi Ambassador to the United States. 

Prince Bandar bin Sultan in the past, has had loyalties to Bush, but not Sultan is not with out controversy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bandar_bin_Sultan  There were rumors that Prince Bandar bin Sultan was told of the plan to invade Iraq ahead of notifying Secretary of State Colin Powell.  Did Colin Powell’s feeling get hurt, and the reason he is now endorsing Obama and getting even with the Republican Party? 

Interestedly enough, Prince Bandar bin Sultan has a home larger that The White House, in where?  You guessed it, Aspen, Colorado, USA. Called The Halla Ranch http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bandar_bin_Sultan  http://www.christiesgreatestates.com   has it listed for sale.  Since 9-11, Prince Bandar bin Sultan no longer visits as often.  The Halla Ranch home has 15 bedrooms, but in his defense he has 8 children, so I can actually see that for such an honored dignitary.

McCain wants to know where Obama’s money is coming from and so do I.  We know all about William Budinger donation but “There’s $200 million of those campaign contributions – there’s no record. They’re not reported. You can report online now, $200 million, that we don’t know where the money came from. A lot of strange things going on in this campaign,” McCain said. “The American people should know where every penny came from. They know where every penny of my campaign contributions came from.”  http://www.cbsnews.com/blogs/2008/10/19/politics/fromtheroad/entry4531269.shtml

The Company that you keep, the words you speak, and your current and past associations sure says a lot about you Mr. Obama.  I hear on Howie Mandel’s, new game show, Deal or No Deal, “show me the money”  from contestants.  Well Mr. Obama who has no birth certificate and has 56 other citizenship questions pending for him in the Berg vs Obama, and the DNC et al pending lawsuit, SHOW ME THE MONEY.
