Hillary Clinton Steps Up controversial Ad Wars against Barack Obama, Asks Who Voters Want 'Answering the Phone' in Crisis Hillary Clinton on Friday stepped up the ad wars with Barack Obama, releasing a 30-second TV spot that hammered away at her campaign’s theme that she will be “ready to lead from Day One” — and that the Obama campaign dismissed as fear-mongering. The new ad shows images of children sleeping in their homes and asks viewers who they want “answering the phone” in the White House during a crisis. The Obama campaign retaliated by re-releasing an ad in which retired Gen. Merrill “Tony” McPeak praises the Illinois senator for his judgment in opposing the Iraq war. Obama said Clinton is just trying to “scare up” votes. “I don’t think these ads will work this time because the question’s not about picking up the phone, it is about what kind of judgment will you exercise when you pick up that phone,” Obama said in Houston Friday. “We have had a red phone moment — it was the decision to invade Iraq. Senator Clinton gave the wrong answer.” Clinton’s new ad underscores her insistence that she has more experience than Obama. It is being launched in Texas, which holds its primary on Tuesday and where she is now trailing Obama in some polls. The ad begins with a somber voiceover that says: “It’s 3 a.m. and your children are safe and asleep. But there’s a phone in the White House and it’s ringing. Something’s happening in the world. “Your vote will decide who answers that call … whether it’s someone who already knows the world’s leaders, knows the military — someone tested and ready to lead in a dangerous world.” After panning across shots of babies and children sleeping in a quiet suburban setting, the ad cuts to Clinton answering that ringing phone. “I will never see the threat of terrorism as a way to scare up votes because it is a threat that should rally the country around our common enemies,” Obama said in response. “That is the judgment we need at 3 a.m.” Obama campaign manager David Plouffe noted that the ad is similar to one created for Walter Mondale during the 1984 Democratic presidential campaign. That ad, produced by Clinton adviser Roy Spence, showed a red phone in a dark room and intoned: “the most awesome, powerful responsibility in the world lies in the hand that picks up this phone.” The ad voiceover said Mondale’s ability to know what he’s doing in a crisis was the difference between him and then-primary rival Gary Hart. Democratic strategist Kelly Bingel said the Clinton spot even reminded her of the controversial ’60s “Daisy” ad from Lyndon B. Johnson’s campaign that showed a little girl playing a field to the backdrop of a nuclear attack. “That’s a pretty harsh ad, but it’s a fair point for her to bring up,” Bingel said. “Clearly the Texas and Ohio votes are critical for Senator Clinton to stay in this race, and she’s taking it to the max.” Dan Palazzolo, political science professor at the University of Richmond, said the Clinton spot taps into a clear “fear factor,” but doesn’t rise to the level of the Daisy ad. He said it will only be effective for Clinton if she repeats the ad’s theme on the stump leading up to the March 4 vote. “She’s gotta stick with it. She can’t just keep jumping around,” Palazzolo said. “This could be their last card that they’re playing.” In a statement the Clinton campaign released about the ad Friday, retired Gen. Wesley Clark said: “One of the most important duties of the president is ensuring the safety of the American people. Inevitably, another national security crisis will occur. And when it does, voters shouldn’t have to wonder whether their president will be ready. As president, Hillary will be ready to act swiftly and decisively.” Keywords: Hillary Clinton, negative ad, attack, Barack Obama, national security, Children, Gulf, Answering the Phone, TV spot, fear-mongering, campaign

Excerpt: Address delivered in Acceptance of Nobel Peace Prize on 10 December 1964 in Oslo, Norway. Your Majesty, Your Royal Highness, Mr. President, excellencies, ladies and gentlemen: I accept the Nobel Prize for Peace at a moment when twenty-two million Negroes of the United States are engaged in a creative battle to end the long night of racial injustice. I accept this award on behalf of a civil rights movement which is moving with determination and a majestic scorn for risk and danger to establish a reign of freedom and a rule of justice. ...nonviolence is the answer to the crucial political and moral questions of our time: the need for man to overcome oppression and violence without resorting to violence and oppression. Civilization and violence are antithetical concepts. Negroes of the United States, following the people of India, have demonstrated that nonviolence is not sterile passivity, but a powerful moral force which makes for social transformation. Sooner or later, all the peoples of the world will have to discover a way to live together in PEACE, and thereby transform this pending cosmic elegy into a creative psalm of brotherhood. If this is to be achieved, man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression, and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is LOVE. The torturous road which has led from Montgomery, Alabama, to Oslo bears witness to this TRUTH, and this is a road over which millions of Negroes are traveling to find a new sense of dignity. This same road has opened for all Americans a new era of progress and HOPE. I accept this award today with an abiding FAITH in America and an audacious FAITH in the future of mankind. I refuse to accept despair as the final response to the ambiguities of history. I refuse to accept the idea that the "is-ness" of man's present nature makes him morally incapable of reaching up for the eternal "ought-ness" that forever confronts him. I refuse to accept the idea that man is mere flotsam and jetsam in the river of life, unable to influence the unfolding events which surround him. I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. I refuse to accept the cynical notion that nation after nation must spiral down a militaristic stairway into the hell of nuclear annihilation. I believe that unarmed TRUTH and unconditional LOVE will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant. I believe that even amid today's mortar bursts and whining bullets, there is still HOPE for a brighter tomorrow. I believe that wounded justice, lying prostrate on the blood-flowing streets of our nations, can be lifted from this dust of shame to reign supreme among the children of men. I have the audacity to believe that peoples everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture for their minds, and dignity, equality, and freedom for their spirits. I believe that what self-centered men have torn down, men other-centered can build up. I still believe that one day mankind will bow before the altars of God and be crowned triumphant over war and bloodshed and nonviolent redemptive goodwill proclaimed the rule of the land. And the lion and the lamb shall lie down together, and every man shall sit under his own vine and fig tree, and none shall be afraid. I still believe that we shall overcome. This FAITH can give us courage to face the uncertainties of the future. It will give our tired feet new strength as we continue our forward stride toward the city of freedom. When our days become dreary with low-hovering clouds and our nights become darker than a thousand midnights, we will know that we are living in the creative turmoil of a genuine civilization struggling to be born.

The Enterprise of Brockton, Mass. www.enterprisenews**** 'Insane' violence shakes city By Maria Papadopoulos ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER BROCKTON — Lisa Hanlon heard six gunshots near the James Edgar Playground on Winthrop Street around dinnertime Wednesday and thought they were firecrackers. Moments later, after loud screams echoed outside, she would join several neighbors trying to stop the bleeding on an 18-year-old male shot multiple times and lying on a porch at 141 Winthrop St., across the street from the playground. "The chest was the one (wound) that was bleeding the most," said Hanlon, 39, a health care worker. "I just told them to keep talking to him, because he was fading in and out of consciousness, and to hold pressure to where the gun wounds were." The 18-year-old, whose name was not released Wednesday night, was in critical condition and undergoing surgery Wednesday night at a local hospital following the 6:07 p.m. shooting, police said. He was shot multiple times in the leg and chest area, witnesses said. A 7-year-old boy, whose name was also not released Wednesday night, suffered non-life-threatening injuries near his eye, police said. "He might have caught a piece of bullet fragment," said Lt. Tom LaFratta. Wednesday's brazen daytime shooting happened less that five days after a 17-year-old was shot dead in Brockton. Jose Gurley, 17, was gunned down early Saturday morning at Roosevelt Heights, a city-owned housing complex on Brockton's North Side. He was the third teen to be shot dead in Brockton in the past two months. No arrests have been made in that shooting, police said. On Winthrop Street, witnesses said a car was driving by when they heard gunshots. Police recovered a handgun in bushes on nearby West Harvard Street shortly after the shooting. No suspects had been identified by 11 p.m. Wednesday. City residents came out of their homes to see a state police helicopter hovering over West Elm Street and Belmont Avenue shortly after the shooting looking for the suspect or suspects. Dozens of youths and parents filled Winthrop Street near the crime scene Wednesday as state and Brockton police recovered evidence behind yellow police tape. A boys' bicycle was among evidence taken from the scene. Five shell casings were found, police said. "It sickens me that these kids are shooting each other," said Ward 2 City Councilor Michael Brady, in whose ward the shooting happened, at the scene. "What's going on in Brockton is just insane," Hanlon said. "There are enough shootings right now that's going on. It's insane." Brockton Police Chief William Conlon, who responded to Wednesday's crime scene, said gun violence in the city "is an ongoing problem." "There's just far too many guns out there, too easily accessible," Conlon said. "We're doing all that we can to try to put a crimp in that." He said police are working with several agencies, including the state police, to help curb gun violence. "Those are the types of issues that we're up against every day," said Conlon, who urged more witnesses to come forward to help solve cases. "People have to start telling us some things," Conlon said. "Protect your family members. Don't let them be carrying guns because they're going to be used against them or they'll be using them on somebody else's family that then retaliates." "It's just an endless cycle of violence if somebody doesn't say 'Enough is enough' and put a stop to it," Conlon said. The historic James Edgar Playground on the city's West Side was where boxing champion Rocky Marciano once played baseball. Marciano grew up on Dover Street, across from the playground and Winthrop Street. Casimiro Gomes, a neighborhood resident, came home from work Wednesday to find Winthrop Street flooded with state and Brockton police. "It makes me cry every day," said Gomes, a 51-year-old father of four, of the recent shootings involving city youth. "I pray to God to help us. There's too much pain."

Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Book 42: Lost Things Picked up by Someone (Luqaata) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Volume 3, Book 42, Number 608: Narrated Ubai bin Ka'b: I found a purse containing one hundred Diners. So I went to the Prophet (and informed him about it), he said, "Make public announcement about it for one year" I did so, but nobody turned up to claim it, so I again went to the Prophet who said, "Make public announcement for another year." I did, but none turned up to claim it. I went to him for the third time and he said, "Keep the container and the string which is used for its tying and count the money it contains and if its owner comes, give it to him; otherwise, utilize it." The sub-narrator Salama said, "I met him (Suwaid, another sub-narrator) in Mecca and he said, 'I don't know whether Ubai made the announcement for three years or just one year.' " -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Volume 3, Book 42, Number 609: Narrated Zaid bin Khalid Al-Juhani: A bedouin went to the Prophet and asked him about picking up a lost thing. The Prophet said, "Make public announcement about it for one year. Remember the description of its container and the string with which it is tied; and if somebody comes and claims it and describes it correctly, (give it to him); otherwise, utilize it." He said, "O Allah's Apostle! What about a lost sheep?" The Prophet said, "It is for you, for your brother (i.e. its owner), or for the wolf." He further asked, "What about a lost camel?" On that the face of the Prophet became red (with anger) and said, "You have nothing to do with it, as it has its feet, its water reserve and can reach places of water and drink, and eat trees." -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Volume 3, Book 42, Number 610: Narrated Sulaiman bin Bilal from Yahya: Yazid Maula Al-Munba'ith heard Zaid bin Khalid al-Juham saying, "The Prophet was asked about Luqata. He said, 'Remember the description of its container and the string it is tied with, and announce it publicly for one year.' " Yazid added, "If nobody claims then the person who has found it can spend it, and it is regarded as a trust entrusted to him." Yahya said, "I do not know whether the last sentences were said by the Prophet or by Yazid." Zaid further said, "The Prophet was asked, 'What about a lost sheep?' The Prophet said, 'Take it, for it is for you or for your brother (i.e. its owner) or for the wolf." Yazid added that it should also be announced publicly. The man then asked the Prophet about a lost camel. The Prophet said, "Leave it, as it has its feet, water container (reservoir), and it will reach a place of water and eat trees till its owner finds it." -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Volume 3, Book 42, Number 611: Narrated Zaid bin Khalid: A man came and asked Allah's Apostle about picking a lost thing. The Prophet said, "Remember the description of its container and the string it is tied with, and make public announcement about it for one year. If the owner shows up, give it to him; otherwise, do whatever you like with it." He then asked, "What about a lost sheep?" The Prophet said, "It is for you, for your brother (i.e. its owner), or for the wolf." He further asked, "What about a lost camel?" The Prophet said, "It is none of your concern. It has its water-container (reservoir) and its feet, and it will reach water and drink it and eat the trees till its owner finds it." -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Volume 3, Book 42, Number 612: Narrated Anas: The Prophet passed a date fallen on the way and said, "Were I not afraid that it may be from a Sadaqa (charitable gifts), I would have eaten it." Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "Sometimes when I return home and find a date fallen on my bed, I pick it up in order to eat it, but I fear that it might be from a Sadaqa, so I throw it." -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Volume 3, Book 42, Number 613: Narrated Abu Huraira: When Allah gave victory to His Apostle over the people of Mecca, Allah's Apostle stood up among the people and after glorifying Allah, said, "Allah has prohibited fighting in Mecca and has given authority to His Apostle and the believers over it, so fighting was illegal for anyone before me, and was made legal for me for a part of a day, and it will not be legal for anyone after me. Its game should not be chased, its thorny bushes should not be uprooted, and picking up its fallen things is not allowed except for one who makes public announcement for it, and he whose relative is murdered has the option either to accept a compensation for it or to retaliate." Al-'Abbas said, "Except Al-ldhkhir, for we use it in our graves and houses." Allah's Apostle said, "Except Al-ldhkhir." Abu Shah, a Yemenite, stood up and said, "O Allah's Apostle! Get it written for me." Allah's Apostle said, "Write it for Abu Shah." (The sub-narrator asked Al-Auza'i): What did he mean by saying, "Get it written, O Allah's Apostle?" He replied, "The speech which he had heard from Allah's Apostle ." -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Volume 3, Book 42, Number 614: Narrated Ibn 'Umar: Allah's Apostle said, "An animal should not be milked without the permission of its owner. Does any of you like that somebody comes to his store and breaks his container and takes away his food? The udders of the animals are the stores of their owners where their provision is kept, so nobody should milk the animals of somebody else, without the permission of its owner." -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Volume 3, Book 42, Number 615: Narrated Zaid bin Khalid Al-Juhani: A man asked Allah's Apostle about the Luqata. He said, "Make public announcement of it for one year, then remember the description of its container and the string it is tied with, utilize the money, and if its owner comes back after that, give it to him." The people asked, "O Allah's Apostle! What about a lost sheep?" Allah's Apostle said, "Take it, for it is for you, for your brother, or for the wolf." The man asked, "O Allah's Apostle! What about a lost camel?" Allah's Apostle got angry and his cheeks or face became red, and said, "You have no concern with it as it has its feet, and its water-container, till its owner finds it." -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Volume 3, Book 42, Number 616: Narrated Suwaid bin Ghafala: While I as in the company of Salman bin Rabi'a and Suhan, in one of the holy battles, I found a whip. One of them told me to drop it but I refused to do so and said that I would give it to its owner if I found him, otherwise I would utilize it. On our return we performed Hajj and on passing by Medina, I asked Ubai bin Ka'b about it. He said, "I found a bag containing a hundred Dinars in the lifetime of the Prophet and took it to the Prophet who said to me, 'Make public announcement about it for one year.' So, I announced it for one year and went to the Prophet who said, 'Announce it publicly for another year.' So, I announced it for another year. I went to him again and he said, "Announce for an other year." So I announced for still another year. I went to the Prophet for the fourth time, and he said, 'Remember the amount of money, the description of its container and the string it is tied with, and if the owner comes, give it to him; otherwise, utilize it.' " -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Volume 3, Book 42, Number 617: Narrated Salama: the above narration (Hadith 616) from Ubai bin Ka'b: adding, "I met the sub-narrator at Mecca later on, but he did not remember whether Ka'b had announced what he had found one year or three years." -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Volume 3, Book 42, Number 618: Narrated Zaid bin Khalid: A bedouin asked the Prophet about the Luqata. The Prophet said, "Make public announcement about it for one year and if then somebody comes and describes the container of the Luqata and the string it was tied with, (give it to him); otherwise, spend it." He then asked the Prophet about a lost camel. The face of the Prophet become red and he said, "You have o concern with it as it has its water reservoir and feet and it will reach water and drink and eat trees. Leave it till its owner finds it." He then asked the Prophet about a lost sheep. The Prophet said, "It is for you, for your brother, or for the wolf." -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Volume 3, Book 42, Number 619: Narrated Abu Bakr: While I was on my way, all of a sudden I saw a shepherd driving his sheep, I asked him whose servant he was. He replied that he was the servant of a man from Quraish, and then he mentioned his name and I recognized him. I asked, "Do your sheep have some milk?" He replied in the affirmative. I said, "Are you going to milk for me?" He replied in the affirmative. I ordered him and he tied the legs of one of the sheep. Then I told him to clean the udder (teats) of dust and to remove dust off his hands. He removed the dust off his hands by clapping his hands. He then milked a little milk. I put the milk for Allah's Apostle in a pot and closed its mouth with a piece of cloth and poured water over it till it became cold. I took it to the Prophet and said, "Drink, O Allah's Apostle!" He drank it till I was pleased. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It is possible to eradicate anger entirely. But it’s not easy. We need to have a “smackdown with anger” to overcome it. Lama Marut here tells us how to do this in three steps: 1) at first, you’ll need to just “run away,” that is, get yourself out of the situation if you can’t restrain yourself from retaliating; 2) when you get stronger and are ready, when the provocation starts you just take it without responding to anger with anger; 3) after practicing for a long time, instead of getting angry when someone is angry with you, you love them and feel compassion towards them. This videocast is taken from a public talk given at the Bodhi Tree Bookstore in Los Angeles in December of 2007. Write to us at: podcastaci-la****
