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!

"The Gipper Was a Peace Conservative"

I saw Peggy Noonan's appearance on MSNBC's Morning Joe show today, and she was wonderful. A gracious lady, and a brilliant one, and a true conservative.

It is interesting to see Scarborough confusing a true conservative's love of peace with utopianism.

Be sure and watch, it really is a must-see.

My, how the neocons are changing their tune now that the power has shifted. Too bad they can't open their eyes just a bit wider and see Iraq on the map as well.

Great video. Thanks, Deb.

You are quite welcome. I start 2-3 days a week with about 30 minutes of the Scarborough show, and sometimes it pays off.

Wow, this stuff is great. If we could only freeze this moment and have Republicans always talk this talk.

I don't know if Noogan counts as a neocon. But she did go along with the the neocons when they were in power. The party of ideas shutdown debate when they were in power, so we didn't have significant objections posed against neocon policy, Noogan included.

Peggy NOONAN is a proto-conservative who may have been a bit too compliant and soft with the neocons but has never once as far as I can see shrugged off her fidelity to a Catholic worldview. Which is the bottom line in my book. All else is just chaff.
