"All We Are Saying, Is Give Peace a Chance"--Right after this station break.

Just when I had almost given up any hope for the world, we were visited by the late Beatle John Lennon through a seance in which he called for peace. Before you pass this off as just another sign of nuttiness from the left, you might want to learn more.

Lennon asks for peace: TV seance (Reuters 04/25/2005)

"Peace ... The Message is Peace."

That's what the producers of a US pay-television seance to contact John Lennon claimed the former Beatle said when communicating with them from beyond the grave.

People who...watch(ed) the pay-per-view Lennon special...saw audio crew members, a psychic and an expert in paranormal activity claim that the late Beatle's spirit made contact with them through what is described as an Electronic Voice Phenomenon (EVP). ...EVP is based on a belief that spirit voices communicate through radio and TV broadcast signals.

On the television show, filming...suddenly stopped and a narrator said something odd has happened. Show participants said that a mysterious voice can be heard on Power's voice feed. The producers called in "EVP specialist" Sandra Belanger to examine the voice and she proclaims it Lennon's.

Producer Paul Sharratt, who heads Starcast Productions and calls himself a sceptic, said hearing the voice has made him a believer. ....

Hey, call me crazy, but that's proof enough for me!

Other people missing John Lennon's advice for the world, according to this article, include Cuban dictator Fidel Castro: "What makes him great in my eyes is his thinking, his ideas. I share his dreams completely. I too am a dreamer who has seen his dreams turn into reality,'' added the 74-year-old former guerrilla who took power in the 1959 Cuban Revolution. ...The Communist Party daily, Granma, put the Beatles on a list of the most "relevant'' figures of the 20th century last year, below Castro, Russian revolutionary Vladimir Lenin, and Argentine-born guerrilla Ernesto "Che" Guevara.

Well, why not? After all, Lennon not only said, "Give peace a chance,' he also gave us these words of widsom:

If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there'd be peace.

Okay, so for all of you who spent $9.95 on pay-per-view to watch the John Lennon seance calling for peace--get rid of those televisions so that there will be peace! Now!

So, are you now convinced that this isn't more nonsense from the loony left? If Castro and the communists admire John Lennon, then he must have had ideas appealing to them, too. Now, where's my remote control?

CS Lewis pointed out that what the dead supposedly come back to tell us is always so banal. You'd think they'd have learned something.

It was central to his disbelief. If that's the best they can do, why bother?

Imagine all the people (useful idiots) living in a delusional wonderland.
And spending their money to hear a crappy "speech"?
As AVI point's out, it's always banal. The same thing that echos from the useful idiot's who are still alive.
