Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

McCain Request For Endorsement

From The Raw Story

QUOTE Ron Paul held a press conference urging voters to select a third-party presidential candidate instead of Barack Obama or John McCain. The Texas congressman said that he fielded a phone call from the McCain campaign on Tuesday asking him for an endorsement. "They called and it was a bit of a surprise to me," Paul said, "because their request was that I endorse John McCain today. "But he "didn't like the idea of getting two to three million people angry at me," so he turned them down, Paul told the laughing crowd.
"The idea was that he would do less harm than the other candidate," Paul complained.

Paul was accompanied at the news conference with third-party presidential candidates, including Ralph Nader and former Georgia Democratic Rep. Cynthia McKinney. UNQUOTE
