The medbh blog has been sleeping lately. Her author has been so busy actively working for PEACE, that writing has been something accomplished only in dreamtime.

sooo, medbh may give up the ghostess, but may be resurrected in another form, sometime in 2006.

In the meantime, here is a vid -- http://cbs5.com/30minutes/local_story_350231908.html
about the Department of PEACE campaign, which medbh actively supports. If you, as the Congressman from Arizona in the vid does, think that establishing a Federal level Department of Peace in our American government, is just a naive idiocy.....

Well, then, think of this---at one point in our human history, slavery was accepted and commonplace. Who argued against this, and who continues to advocate for PEACE and non violent methods to resolve international and national conflicts??--the Quakers.

At one point in our human history, decapitation via a guillontine was accepted and commonplace.
At one point on our human history, cutting off a male child's testicles was accepted and commonplace. Hey--the Church needed sopranos for their magnificent choirs.........

At one point in our history, breaking a human's bones on a "rack" was an accepted form of torture...by a CHURCH.

At one point in our history, tying someone to a wood pole and then burning them alive was an accepted form of punishment---by a CHURCH.

well, the list of inhuman atrocities visited on our human bodies by governments and churches is endless.

You get the pic. Let's take our present society to a higher level. PLEASE.

Tell your Congressperson and your Senator that you want the American government to take the lead in sponsoring a Department of Peace and Non-Violence, HERE.
and, some notable blogpoints you should review--HERE and HERE

PEACE to you, and Peace out,
medbh

medbh has been very busy these past few weeks, actively working for PEACE, in addition to holding down the full time job, like so many other Americans, who have lots of diverse responsibilities.
I have been thinking lately, that I should probably dissolve this blog, as I truly do not like doing anything "halfway." I feel like I have not done justice to the blog for almost a month.

then, a friend sent something my way.

and, I decided that, as long as there are people dying and being maimed for corporate oil, well, I guess I could at the very least, keep putting out into the blogosphere, reasons to fight to end this horrendous war.

so, WHAT DOES 2,000 Look Like? LIKE THIS

do what you can to end this war, and to bring PEACE.

A Sunday happy


Aaahhh--the baby hippo lost his mommy in the tsunami. But he found a new grandparent in the 100 year old turtle. Here is his story.

The Shoot First Law is in New Jersey??????

I've haven't posted for almost two weeks now, as I have been like so many people, busy. But, this morning, due to the snow storm, or rather, snow little hissy fit, I am going into work a bit late.

I was trying to machete my way through a jungle of unopened emails, when this one popped out.

Crap. Can't be. Doesn't this type of mentality only rule down in the land of the drawls? This is freaking NJ, and just because we shelter the most dangerous city in the nation, Camden, doesn't mean we would want this Shoot First, Ask Questions Later law up here, right??

I mean, can you imagine how that kind of law would play out here? In Camden, in Newark?

Send it Packing!! Tell Gov. Cody NJ the Garden State doesn't need to become the Graveyard State!!
Here's the dish from the people trying to stop the Insanity:

In October, Florida became a very dangerous place, and if the National Rifle Association (NRA) gets its way, New Jersey will be next.

On October 1, the Shoot First Law went into effect in Florida, giving the people of Florida permission to use deadly force as a first resort, even in a public place. The law grants sweeping criminal and civil immunity to anyone who pulls the trigger when they feel 'threatened' -- and specifically denies legal recourse to innocent bystanders killed or wounded in the crossfire, even if the shooter acted negligently.
Click here to tell Governor Codey that "Shoot First" is a horrible policy idea for New Jersey.

But the Shoot First doctrine isn't just staying in Florida -- the NRA has made no bones about the fact that it plans to export Shoot First legislation to all 50 states in 2006. This is about to become a national disgrace, and will take us back to the days of the Wild West -- unless you get involved.

Our partners at the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence have put together an easy way for you to tell your Governor to "Keep Shoot First out of our state" -- and we encourage you to click the link below to get this important message to Governor Codey.

Click here to take action with the Brady Campaign and keep "Shoot First" from becoming law in New Jersey.
Thanks in advance for taking a proactive stand to stop the spread of this dangerous legislation. Together, we can make sure this law doesn't come to New Jersey next.
Please forward this newsletter to your friends, email lists, and bloggers you know to help spread the word about this important campaign!
Thank you for working to build a better world.
