Everybody in my churches loves this song...

Tomgram — Andrew Bacevich, The Eternal War


At the National Defense University (NDU) last Thursday, President Obama, so media reports and editorials assured us, gave a speech in which he promised to dial back the war on terror as a “global” operation, curtail U.S. drone operations abroad, and launch another effort to whittle down, if not close, Guantanamo. But a careful look at the text of his speech indicates that he still accepts the most basic premises of the previous administration: that we are “at war”; that the country, despite visible evidence to the contrary, is in “wartime”; and that, when a president decides it’s necessary, this planet will remain a global free-fire zone for drones, special operations forces, or whatever else he choses to throw at it. He may even, reports Jonathan Landay of McClatchy News, have quietly expanded the categories of human beings that U.S. drones can attack...

 
Great tune either at Christmas or in the Summer, that's always a John Lennon Classic
I've always liked this Christmas song, no matter how Christmas is going that year.

And here's me thinking she's actually relatively in tune on this.
This is one Christmas song I could probably listen to all year.
War is Over - If you want it
Still my favorite Christmas song -- in spite of Yoko.... :clap:

No, not sacred, just damned good. Yes it has withstood the time-test.

Hmmm ... I guess I'm not the only one who thinks that John's a little better singer than Yoko. Oh well, still enjoyed hearing the song.

:iamwith: Are you kidding me. This song is as timely now as it was when it was first performed. And as for the Yoko noises, I just don't know what you are talking about.
for some wonderful reason, I have always been able to successfully tune out Yoko in this song and enjoy the rest of it. :music:
an increasingly necessary Yuletide song...
