Just called Senator Byrds office , hes going to speak today and demand
that our troops be brought home
NOW
in the meantime, a Jihad has been called by all the mosques today


Our foreign minister Hoshyar Zibari was being interviewed by some British journalist yesterday, making excuses for Tony Blair and commending him on the war. At one point someone asked him about the current situation in Iraq. He mumbled something about how there were 'problems' but it wasn't a big deal because Iraq was 'stable' what Iraq is he living in?

And as I blog this, all the mosques, Sunni and Shia alike, are calling for Jihad...

as soon as you're done with your bread.

Imagine, a man like Byrd, go-fer to the energy corporation that got us into this mess, calling for an end to their war.

What a show! The acrobatics are superb. He could join Cirque de Soliel as a contortionist

5. Have I missed it?
I hope not




We pray that someday an arrow will be broken,

not in something or someone, but by each of humankind,

to indicate peace, not violence.

Someday, oneness with creation,

rather than domination over creation,

will be the goal to be respected.

Someday fearlessness to love and make a difference

will be experienced by all people.

Then the eagle will carry our prayer for peace and love,

and the people of the red, white, yellow, brown, and black communities

can sit in the same circle together to communicate in love

and experience the presence of the Great Mystery in their midst.

Someday can be today for you and me. Amen.

6. They could stand all the Republicans in a large circle....
and they would have difficulty picking up Senator Byrd's jock strap.
