Let it be borne on the flag under which we rally in every exigency, that we have one country, one constitution, one destiny. -- Daniel Webster

High School Musical -- For Real!

Blogging the high school musical --

No, not that High School Musical.  :-)    This week I am in a real high school musical.  The original book was written by the students of the private school where it is being performed and the songs are from Broadway of the past.  The show is turning out better than I expected with good help from their singing instructor and a supportive community.  The first performance was given last night for the school population.

Set in the 1930's the show features fabulous attire, including some $20,000 worth of mink stoles.  The women look ravishing, and I haven't seen young high school men dressed up this way in -- forever!

All right, so I gush.  But it certainly is refreshing to see young people singing good music in a good environment and with great attitudes.

Love Around the World

"Love," as the song says, "makes the world go 'round."  These days it seems there is a poll or survey about everything.  Some are more useful than others.  I find the article at the link below to be interesting.  For a long time I have felt there wasn't enough love in the world.  While I still feel this to be true, it seems there is perhaps more love than I thought! 

As some people celebrate St. Valentine's Day today, why not check out your own country on the table at the end of the article?  You may be surprised.

The Myth of a Christian Nation

I am currently completing a book called The Myth of a Christian Nation by Gregory Boyd. (See link below.)  This important book was published in 2005, during the G. W. Bush administration.  Yet it is timely still.  Drawing on solid research the book shows how not only is the U.S. not a Christian nation, but it was never intended to be.  Further, it shows that, from a Christian standpoint, a worldly government can and never should be declared to be "Christian."

This somewhat surprising conclusion is, nevertheless, built on a rock-solid foundation.  Highly recommended.

The Dilemma of 9/11

In a recent poll a majority of Americans declared they were not aware there were actually three buildings at the World Trade Center which collapsed on 9//11/01, and not two.  Building 7 fell around 5:00 p.m. that same day, seemingly without either warning or reason.  Experts have called into question the cause of the fall of this building which was not hit by any airplanes.

Soon I will have more to say about this. 

Meanwhile, the time has come to search for the truth about various events which have been called false flag operations.  And let us not be hasty or sloppy in our search.  Let us be deliberate but also not tarry.  Let us have what the Supreme Court in another contest called "all deliberate speed."

Coming: more on this subject with recommended reading

How Important Is It to Understand What Happened on 9/11/01?

How time changes things.

Ten years ago, the news was full of a "Mission Accomplished"  called back into bloody action in the streets and sands of Iraq.  All because of the "terror" of 9/11.

Have we entered an alternate reality where those days cannot be spoken of?  Is George Bush (the Lesser) now Dwight Eisenhower in memory?  By 1970 Eisenhower was dead, a dim memory.  And when he was remembered the descriptive of "boring" surrounded his name and his era.

Most importantly for our times, are the events of September 2001.  How important is it to know, to really understand what transpired on that fateful day of September 11, 2001?  Longtime readers know of my interest in this subject.  In terms of recent history, in fact, it is the event of our time.  Can understanding the events of that day in any way help us understand what I and others have called the Fascism Lite of now?

It is a big story, this story of fascism and false flags, terror, and media circuses.  For the last nearly eight years this blog has explored many topics, but none so important as the failure of the economic system to meet the needs of all the citizens of the U.S. and, indeed the world.

Let us be about the business of re-discovering the true meaning of freedom, which must -- by definition -- include economic freedom.  Also, justice.  Let us be willing to look and really see, to listen and really hear, to be touched, and really feel.
