solstice

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

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.

One website claims to have the transcript of the L.A. Times video,  http://chicagoagainstobama.wordpress.com/2008/10/29/probable-transcript-of-the-khalidi-tape/

“While Sam Zell is selling out the future of his own people by refusing to release the tape of Barack Obama toasting known anti-Semite and PLO functionary, Rashid Khalidi, I have been fortunate enough to receive a probable transcript of the toast…

HERE IT IS:

****BEGINNING OF TRANSCRIPT***********

Um, ah….Salaam

Um….My distinguished guests….ughh….it is an honor to be here…

uhh….It is truly refreshing to be surrounded by such a large group of people in which…uh.. I can truly see eye-to-eye with…uh…and completely agree…

Reverend Farrakhan..ughh…great to see you tonight…you always look great in a yellow bow-tie…and..uhh…tonight is no exception….

Bill..Bernadine….I see you everyday…so I don’t need to say much…but…ughh…you know I love you….keep doing the work you do….it’s time to start a revolution

Reverend Wright…..ughh…you are the father that I never had….I’ve never missed a sermon…and…uhh….I never will…

Michelle, while I find your frown so beautiful….I hope to one day make you proud of this country..and uhh…happy…and finally see you smile….

uhhhhh…with that being said…If everyone could please hold off from hitting the hookah…I would like to say a toast..to my, and Yasser Arafat’s, best friend….Mr. Rashid Khalidi….

Rashid…..you are my best friend….spiritual compass…..and baby sitter (crowd laughs..and cries)

I want to thank you for your constant indoctrination….I want to thank you for your imput..and..uhhh…reminders…that Israel is a constant sore….and..uhh…needs to be eliminated off the map….

I also want to thank you for introducing me to your many contacts in the middle east…I am sure…uh…that their imput……and uh…money…..will be of great use to me as I run for President of these great 57 states…..

While David Axelrod may be forcing you to move away from me during the campaign….I am confident…that..uhh…our friendship will not only remain..but actually prosper..during our time of absence….

Rashid…you ARE my middle east adviser….and you ALWAYS will be…

Here’s to Rashid……(A chant of Messiah can be heard in the background….also audible…is a voice (thought to be Ayer’s) screaming REVOLUTION…REVOLUTION..over and over…)

Salaam….”

This is pretty creative seeing as we have no idea what That One had to say about That Other One with those Other One’s in attendance.

 

Over at  http://directorblue.blogspot.com/ he claims this tip–

I received a tip from a person who has provided useful, accurate and unique data from LA before (e.g., “All six of CNN’s ‘undecided voters’ were Democratic operatives“). Take it for what it’s worth, but I believe this person is on target. 

Saw a clip from the tape. Reason we can’t release it is because statements Obama said to rile audience up during toast. He congratulates Khalidi for his work saying “Israel has no God-given right to occupy Palestine” plus there’s been “genocide against the Palestinian people by Israelis.” 

My tip to you, Vote McCain.

Bill O’Reilly announced last night that his staff has been in contact with the LA Times and that the newspaper says it will not release the tape of Obama toasting radical Rashid Khalidi at a Jew-bash in Chicago. The O’Reilly Factor will report more on the story tomorrow.

In the meantime, Nancy Sullivan, spokeswoman for the Times, said the paper is not interested in revisiting the story. “As far as we’re concerned, the story speaks for itself,” she said.
