Let’s open up the mailbox and see what’s inside.
Please stop posting this crap about Ron Paul it’s embarassing. Your using the propaganda of the neocons who constructed this nonsense when Dr. Paul was running for congress again. The original author is a known criminal (and got immediately fired when he wrote this stuff) who fled to mexico recently. -.-
It’s too funny btw that the New Republic posted this. (though the author already admitted that it’s just a smear and he himself doesn’t believe it a second)
This seems to be the typical Paulnut response to the New Republic’s piece on Ron Paul. If the newsletters are not legit then I would agree with the sentiment. However Ron Paul has never said that those articles were never in his newsletters, only that he didn’t write them and wasn’t aware of them. Like I said yesterday, I’d be more prone to buy that excuse if it was one or two articles but there were dozens over the years in his allegedly official newsletter. Paul won’t even say who wrote the articles or why they were in his newsletter. I’ve upgraded Ron Paul from kooky creationist to racist homophobic paranoid loony creationist for the mean time. See the cat? See the cradle?

Re: snow blowing Christmas Tree
Oh Honey! Being one prone to cynicism myself I sympathize with your reaction!
Blog your heart out if you must on this and other topics, but I recommend you get more first hand info before you do. Trust me it helps improve your life in numerous ways!
I first saw this “snowing” tree about at the nursing home in which my grandma resided. The person that set it up used grand creativity to put a display at the base that included faux ice upon which were several faux penguins, gifts, and candy canes. I was charmed.
Subsequent decor included themes of rustic nature, glamour, and Santa’s elves at recess. All contained the snow well during use. I complimented and consulted the employee responsible for the decor, being a neat-nick myself and musing over hazards and problems as I often do.
I revel in the ingenuity and cleverness of people like this woman who encouraged and coached me. I especially admire it when it is put to use for the purpose of uplifting others. Being one of those “others” in this and many things throughout my life I learned to pass along their generosity as best I can. One example being the snow blowing Christmas tree in my own home.
The mess is miniscule compared to the pleasure of it, including the gentle sound as the snow cascades. I have had live trees all my life until this one. Each kind has mess, debris, minor challenges to set them up and take them down. And each has benefits that far outweigh the work and any silly little frustrations if any should arise.
Today I find your comment simply because I am looking for a good buy on more snow! Sure we lose a little here and there, but not much. We still have plenty from our original purchase some 5 years ago, but I’m securing my desire to try a different design next year which may require more just because I’m not the greatest engineer.
So take heart dear fellow cynic-leaning thinker! To suspend judgement based solely on imagination has immense benefits! A few of these are increasing openness to simple pleasures, acceptance of personal limitations, and the appreciation of others who experience life differently than ourselves.
I ask Jehovah God to bless you with ongoing revelation of the goodness and love He brings your way to draw you into Holy Scripture and a life with Him that supercedes any existence without Him!
It is in Jesus that any hope for burying cynicism rests. And I’m here to tell ya, being LESS cynical is BY FAR a better way to experience life!!!!
Christ’s Peace, dear one.
