Pope Benedict XVI's Christmas Day message from Rome


“Got the blues, how about a little of the blog-usa news.”


26-December-2005-BLOG-USA-World-News-Edition


Pope Benedict XVI's Christmas Day message from Rome.


Pope Benedict XVI delivered his ''Urbi et Orbi'' message
(Latin for ''to the city and to the world'') from the loggia
of the St. Peter's Basilica (Rome) at the Vatican, Sunday.


In his Christmas Day message on Sunday - Pope Benedict
proclaimed prayer and asked for a unity against those that
unleash terror on the rest of humanity. The Pope called on
the world to renew their efforts toward humanitarian crises
and others to join the vast need to house and shelter millions
all around this globe. Further - reminding us all that poverty
continues to afflict so many around the world. With a prayer.

Virginia court short-cuts the attorney general recount

Virginia court short-cuts the attorney general recount


Giving visions of elections past, the Virginia three-judge
panel would not allow a full state-wide recounting of the
votes in their closely contested State Attorney General's
election. Even after a big margin for the Governors race.

It contrast the Virginia court even used a recount method
similar to that standard imposed during the 2000 election
for president. Where the state of Florida only allowed the
limited recounting of ballots instead of a state-wide count.

Virginia's court sided with the republican candidate holding
who, similarly as in 2000, held only the slightest count lead.

Later review of the Florida method revealed a count reversal
error in number of votes, or methods, used to determine that
race. A factor that would have likely reversed that win count.

As in Florida, Virginia's three-judge panel assumed that most
of the state's votes had been cast and counted correctly and as
such only recounted some precinct totals or the same numbers
that had been presently used to get to the point of such recount.

So, instead, the court found in favor of the Republican side in
the recount hearing and even determined where and what the
recount would actually, physically, recount. Which it in itself
produced a different total, or end result, than before the count
had ended on election night and the next morning. Giving yet
evidence, or pause that something was clearly afoot, or wrong
in the first place, or same numbers would have been produced.

Nonetheless, or in spite of, it was decreed as valid and as final.
Interesting that Virginia's ballots do not allow, or note, a party
affiliation beside the candidate's name. GOP could have lost 3
offices instead of just one. Noting the closeness of many races.

Bush: President, then lawyer, judge, jury, and undertaker?

“Got the blues, how about a little of the blog-usa news.”

Bush: President, then lawyer, judge, jury, and undertaker?


Even before September 11th, 2001 it didn't always appear
that this White House was on the same page, security wise
as the rest of the nation. No it appeared that they were in a
more aggressive posture. Going from nation to nation and
letting them know who was in charge and which treaty we
no longer enforced, or worse - was no longer a member of.

Yes, it was obvious to even independent supporters that it
was an administration hell-bent for leather and a timely hit
at their chip-on-the-shoulder may not be long in appearing.

Which, by the way, soon was denoted by this President's
daily briefing of August 6th, 2001. Most people still like
to compare everything as just a compete surprise. But it
now appears, in retrospection, that this group of political
ponies plan everything down to the last minor detail. So
how could such a group with all of this talent & training
have someone walk through each and every level of US
defenses? As it has been officially reported to have been
the case on 9/11. Had to believe right? Too good to be a
truism, maybe? What do “they” say, if it's too good to be
true, then it probably ain't. Additionally, & since nothing
is free – who really paid the expense tab - for all of those
trainers? Where's the review pending of that secret DOD
group that tracked the alleged hijackers. Who - OKed it?

The same group of stealth leader planners that knew of
the non-exist weapons of mass-destruction? Who then?

Who knows anything these days, other that what a media
big wants you to learn. Signed, sealed and paid for in "full"
by the lawyer, judge, jury, undertaker, or a cabinet maker
that may not like reading all of the directions? Or - worse,
one who can't be made to color a page - inside of the lines.

Congressman Kucinich was correct on Iraq pre-war intel

Congressman Kucinich was correct on Iraq pre-war intel

re: i-net information posted relative - Mr. Dennis Kucinich
-
-
-
“Department of Peace” by Congressman Kucinich (D) OH
-
-
“The United States was founded on hope, optimism, and a
commitment to freedom. We [U.S.] can once again become
a beacon of hope for the world. To do that, we must reject
the current administration's policies of fear, suspicion, and
preemptive war. It is time to jettison our illusions and fears
and to transform age-old challenges with new thinking. This
is the idea behind [his] proposal to establish a Department of
Peace. This is the idea to make nonviolence an [] organizing
principle at home and abroad and dedicate ourselves [US] to
peaceful coexistence, consensus building, disarmament, and
respect for international treaties. Violence [] and war are not
inevitable. Nonviolence and peace are inevitable. We [US]
can conceive of peace as not simply the absence of violence
but the presence of the capacity for a higher evolution of
human awareness, of respect, trust, and integrity. We [US]
can conceive of peace as a tool to tap the infinite capabilities
of humanity to transform consciousness and conditions that
impel or compel violence at a personal, group, or national
level toward creating understanding, compassion, and love.
-
-
We [US] can bring forth new understandings where peace,
not war, becomes inevitable. We [US] can move from wars
to end all wars to peace to end all wars. Citizens across the
United States are now uniting in a great cause to establish a
[United States'] Department of Peace, seeking nothing less
than the transformation of our society, to make nonviolence
an organizing principle, to make war archaic [-----] through
creating a paradigm shift in our culture [---------] for human
development for economic and political justice and for
violence control. Its work in violence control will be to
support disarmament, treaties, peaceful coexistence and
peaceful consensus building. Its focus on economic and
political justice will examine and enhance resource
distribution, human and economic rights and strengthen
democratic values. We [US] must change the metaphor of
our society from one of war to one of peace. The [United
States] Department of Defense now requires in excess of
$400 billion for its activities. A [US] Department of Peace
can be an effective counterbalance, redirecting our national
energies towards nonviolent intervention, mediation, and[or]
conflict resolution on all matters of [-global] human security.
-
-
A [US] Department of Peace can look at the domestic issues
that our society faces and often ignores as we [US] focus on
matters internationally. We have a problem with violence in
our own society, and we need to look at it and address it in a
structured way. Domestically, the [US] Department of Peace
[c]ould address violence in the home, spousal abuse, [] child
abuse, gangs, and police-community relations conflicts, and
would work with individuals and groups to achieve changes
in attitudes that examine the mythologies of cherished world
views, such as [------------------] ("violence is inevitable") or
[---------------------------------------------] ("war is inevitable.")
-
-
Thus, it will help with the discovery of new selves and new
paths toward peaceful consensus. The [US] Department of
Peace w[ould] also address [all] human development and the
unique concerns of women and children. It will envision and
seek to implement plans for peace education, not simply as a
course of study, but as a [global] template for all pursuits of
knowledge within formal educational settings. Americans
have proven over and over again we're a nation that can rise
to the challenges of our times, because our people have that
capacity. And so, the concept of [-US] Department of Peace
is the vehicle by which we [US] express our belief that we
have the capacity to evolve as a people, that someday we
could look back at this moment and understand that we took
the steps along the way to make war archaic. Violence is not
inevitable. War is not inevitable. Nonviolence and peace are
inevitable. We [US] can make of this world a gift of peace
which will confirm the presence of universal spirit in our
lives. We [US] can send into the future the gift which will
protect our children from fear, from harm, from destruction."

“Nobody” has an idea what disaster really looks like

title: “Nobody” has an idea what disaster really looks like
-
-
Noted movie actress - UN goodwill ambassador - and - or
refugee advocate Angelina Jolie appealed Friday during a
press conference in Islamabad, Pakistan - requesting swift
delivery of promised aid to Pakistan. Jolie added that now
a new disaster threatens earthquake survivors when harsh
winter conditions settle on the devastated mountain areas.
-
-
According to international press reports, "You watch TV
and you see the pictures, but nobody sitting at home has
any idea what this really looks like," Jolie said. "It's just
unbelievable. You fly in...and...see ... house after house
...just rubble, nothing standing." From sea to shining sea.
-
-
Well, I'm “nobody” and I'm sitting at home. Someone's
home, so to speak - not my own. Sometime I still get to
watch the TV – more often – when available on the net.
-
-
As a result, I know what it's like to lose one's home and
a lifetime's worth of personal property. You won't see a
view like mine, or thousands of others, all this country or
as in other countries. Name the location, pick the disaster.
-
-
Pick the network, change the channel. Date the calenders.
-
-
As “nobody” it would just be nice to see anybody keep any
promise, about anything. If certain people hadn't been hell
bent-to-leather on blowing all of the United States surplus,
look at the actual-cash flow, that could helped everywhere.
-
-
Then the rest of the world could have then kept for better
use, all of the money-capital being loaned to the the U.S.,
now through this current administration, for one treasury.
-
-
Which, in-fact since 2000, requires the never ending use
of foreign loans and/or monies now that could be provide
for better use, in the form of swift & timely disaster relief.
-
-
But since I'm nobody, what would I know of worldly strife.

FEMA will ''pay a fair price,” but not be gouged?

title:. FEMA will "pay a fair price," but not be gouged?
-
-
FEMA will ''pay a fair price,” but will not be gouged....
-
-
FEMA will ''pay a fair price” but will not be gouged - so
acting director, R. David Paulison, has told the Houston
housing officials. City financial - woes and depletion of a
resource fund for helping hurricane victims appears as a
problem now. Many FEMA vouchers appear pretty much
worthless because they don't cover the full amount of the
rent, recent news information report from Texas reveals.
-
Wonder if FEMA could go over to the Department of [no]
Defense, or that Pentagon, and give a short lecture on not
allowing inflated-contract-costs, so called, price-gouging?
-
-
Maybe then some of those savings could be redirected to
shortages in other departments & just about eliminate any
need to give petty-political tax-cuts to those poor-richers'.
-
-
Everything's bigger in Texas, guess that means problems
as well. The city of Houston says it will not - pay any rent
for people in apartments that cost more than -FEMA will
subsidize. Reported through-out the news by a Mr. John
Walsh, deputy chief of staff to Houston's mayor - Mr. Bill
White. Further it reported claims that Houston has issued
vouchers for long-term housing to about --18,000 – some
as the estimated 40,000 families - who will need it by this
year's end. However, the city now anticipates that another
14,000 evacuees soon will move out of hotels. Noting that
Houston has received $37.2 million from -FEMA to repay
initial housing costs for evacuees, and it expects to get an
additional $101 million - expenses through Jan. 31, 2005.
-
-
Even so, and as much, the city will not be -reimbursed for
payments above the voucher levels. Hard countin' money.
