“O Christmas Tree”

O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy leaves are so unchanging;
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy leaves are so unchanging;
Not only green when summer’s here,
But also when ’tis cold and drear.
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy leaves are so unchanging!

Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Much pleasure thou can’st give me;
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Much pleasure thou can’st give me;
How often has the Christmas tree
Afforded me the greatest glee!
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Much pleasure thou can’st give me.

O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy candles shine so brightly!
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy candles shine so brightly!
From base to summit, gay and bright,
There’s only splendor for the sight.
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy candles shine so brightly!

O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
How richly God has decked thee!
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
How richly God has decked thee!
Thou bidst us true and faithful be,
And trust in God unchangingly.
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
How richly God has decked thee! !”

  1. Check out this interview with Oliver Stone, of all people: http://rt.com/news/oliver-stone-us-orwellian-022/

    Oliver Stone to RT: ‘US has become an Orwellian state’

    Americans are living in an Orwellian state argue Academy Award-winning director Oliver Stone and historian Peter Kuznick, as they sit down with RT to discuss US foreign policy and the Obama administration’s disregard for the rule of law.

    ­Both argue that Obama is a wolf in sheep’s clothing

    Stone told RT. “It is an Orwellian state. It might not be oppressive on the surface, but there is no place to hide. Some part of you is going to end up in the database somewhere.”

    According to Kuznick, American citizens live in a fish tank where their government intercepts more than 1.7 billion messages a day. “That is email, telephone calls, other forms of communication.” …

    Oliver Stone: I think under the disguise of sheep’s clothing he has been a wolf. That because of the nightmare of the Bush presidency that preceded him, people forgave him a lot. He was a great hope for change. The color of his skin, the upbringing, the internationalism, the globalism, seemed all evident. And he is an intelligent man. He has taken all the Bush changes he basically put them into the establishment, he has codified them. That is what is sad. [BLAME BUSH, BLAME BUSH, BLAME BUSH.] So we are going into the second administration that is living outside the law and does not respect the law and foundations of our system and he is a constitutional lawyer, you know. Without the law, it is the law of the jungle. Nuremburg existed for a reason and there was a reason to have trials, there is a reason for due process – ‘habeas corpus’ as they call it in the United States.

    RT: Do you agree Peter?

    Peter Kuznick: I agree, if you look at his domestic policy, he did not break with the Bush administration’s policies. If you look at his transparency – he claimed to be the transparency president when he was running for office. There has not been transparency. We have been actually classifying more documents under Obama than we did under Bush. All previous presidents between 1970 and 2008 indicted three people total under Espionage Act. Obama has already indicted six people under the Espionage Act. The surveillance has not stopped, the incarceration without bringing people to trial has not stopped. So those policies have continued.

    Then there are war policies, militarization policies. We are maintaining that. We are fighting wars now in Yemen, Afghanistan. [Libya, Egypt, Syria, Mali, where else? 125 countries with our troops in them?] We are keeping troops in Afghanistan. We have not cut back the things that we all found so odious about the Bush administration and Obama added some of his own. The drones policy – Obama had more drone attack in the first eight months than Bush had his entire presidency. And these have very dubious international legality. We complained during Bush years that Bush was actually conducting surveillance without judiciary review. Obama is killing people, targeted assassinations without judiciary review. That to us is obviously much more serious.

    But, boy, you guys sure keep a low profile. You say this on far-out-of-the-lamestream sites (this is a RUSSIAN news site!), but not on NBC. I dare you to say this on NBC or CNN or FOX News or ABC, CBS, MSNBC! Asshats. You’re the problem. You idiots who selected him. TY, idiots.

    DUH, DUH, DUH. Earth to commie leftists. Welcome to our nightmare. You voted for him. You asked for it–you got it.

    TY, commie leftists. Of course, these fools go on to praise OWS and hate on the U.S. military. They say it’s “hero worship” of the military that got us into this fix.

    Not their “hero worship” of commie dictator wannabes like Barry Soetoro.

  2. So much slipping past under the radar, whilst we’re all partying down! I should learn to search our site when names come up in the news. Did you hear that Lisa Jackson, of the EPA, is bowing out? Well, this comment gives a clue to why: http://wtpotus.wordpress.com/2012/11/16/requiem-for-a-twinkie-open-thread/comment-page-1/#comment-98732

    Remember that? “The House science committee is demanding the White House explain why top administration officials are using secret e-mail accounts and other techniques to conceal their taxpayer-paid activities from public oversight.

    The evidence of officials’ efforts to evade transparency laws includes EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson’s use of the fake name “Richard Windsor”, and hidden e-mail accounts, according to a Nov. 16 letter sent by the committee to several White House officials, including Jackson. …”

    Now this: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/12/27/attorney-claims-epa-chief-resigned-over-alias-email-accounts/

    Attorney claims EPA chief resigned over alias email accounts

    A Washington attorney suing the Obama administration for access to alias emails sent by EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson claims that a recent decision by the Justice Department to release thousands of those emails next month contributed to her resigning Thursday.

    Jackson, in a brief written statement, said Thursday she is leaving the EPA after four years on the job, for “new challenges, time with my family and new opportunities to make a difference.” [Golden parachute? Job waiting for her with Podesta and/or Soros?]

    The agency did not offer an explanation. But Chris Horner, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, said the scrutiny over the alias emails is clearly a factor.

    “Life’s full of coincidences, but this is too many,” he told FoxNews.com. “She had no choice.”

    Horner and CEI earlier this year had sued the EPA for documents pertaining to Jackson’s use of alias email accounts. She was said to operate under the name “Richard Windsor” — the use of those accounts has since drawn the scrutiny of Republican members of Congress, as well as triggered an audit by the EPA inspector general.

    According to court documents, the EPA — represented by the Justice Department — two weeks ago agreed to release as many as 12,000 emails pertaining to the CEI request beginning by Jan. 14, at a rate of 3,000 documents per month. The court accepted the schedule last week.

    Horner said the increased scrutiny on the alias account, coupled with what those emails might contain regarding the administration’s alleged “war on coal,” likely contributed to Jackson’s announcement Thursday.”

  3. Here’s a good one: http://www.humanevents.com/2012/12/30/obama-on-meet-the-press-im-not-driven-by-some-ideological-agenda/

    Obama on Meet the Press: I’m not driven by some ideological agenda

    President Obama turned up on NBC’s “Meet the Press” for the first time since the passage of ObamaCare, and gave exactly the performance that every veteran Obama-watcher would have expected: a bitter, intransigent partisan claiming to be the only non-partisan, non-ideological participant in the “fiscal cliff” drama. “I’m not driven by some ideological agenda – I’m a pretty practical guy,” he explicitly stated, offering his past four years in office as evidence.

    It’s too bad “Meet the Press” doesn’t have a laugh track. Obama’s interviewer, David Gregory, was willing to flagrantly violate D.C. gun laws to beat up on NRA executive Wayne LaPierre, but when President Obama takes the stage to drop insane howlers like that, America’s top outlaw journalist just sits quietly and nods.

    There’s a lot more at the link. I couldn’t watch Barry. I couldn’t switch channels fast enough when he came on. Of course, as this writer reports, he LIED through his teeth in typical passive/aggressive, sociopathic fashion. Especially about the Republicans. And played the subliminal race card by accusing the Republicans simply of just saying the opposite of whatever he says, just because he’s Barry.

  4. Man …does everything have to refer to race?????
    Hill has a…. “Blood” clot. I’m sure were paying for her best care…$
