During this time of year one does not wish to write or review anything that would break the Christmas spirit. So I’ll refrain from any remarks that would be considered controversial or negative and wish you a Joyous Holiday Season.
President Obama is coming under fire by questioning his leadership concerning the Syrian Civil War, and the recent Nuclear Deal with Iran. Those policies are the continued destruction and evacuation of poison chemicals from Syria, and Iranian compliance with all requirements set forth at present in the agreement and over the next six months. Let’s hope these two issues work out for the benefit of the United States and let’s give Peace a Chance.
On a lighter note here are the lyrics of a lovely Christmas Song written and often sung by Celine Dion, and included without her permission, but I’m sure she wouldn’t mind me reprinting it .
And So This Is Xmas
So this is Christmas and what have you done
Another year’s over a new one has just begun
So this is Christmas and I hope you have fun
To near and the dear ones, the old and the young
So have a merry, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
I hope it’s a good one without any fear
And a Merry Christmas to the weak and the strong
To the rich and the poor ones, these wars have been too long
And a happy, Happy New Year to the black and the white
To the yellow and red ones, let’s stop all the fight.
So a merry, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
I hope it’s a good one
Without any fear.
And of course a little: NOSTALGIA
To those who served in Vietnam willingly, some unwillingly, and those who dodged, protested the war, or were just passing through, remember this one sung by “Country” Joe McDonald in 1969 that brought down the house at Woodstock?
Come on all you big strong men
Uncle Sam needs you again
He’s got himself in a terrible Jam
Way down yonder in Vietnam
So put down your books and pick up your gun
We’re gonna have a lot of fun.
And its one, two, three, four
What are we fighting for ?
Don’t ask me, I don’t give a damn
Next stop is Vietnam.
And it’s five, six, seven, eight
Open up those Pearly Gates;
There ain’t no time to wonder why
Woopie___ We’re all gonna die.
Regrettably 58,209 did.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a great year ahead.
All the Best
