    Quite different from the flash mobs in the Center City District area in Philly,[​IMG]. I wonder what the difference is?[​IMG]

    Don, that was quite inspirational. An overt statement to all that Christmas is about the birth of Jesus Christ. It almost brought a tear to my eye. Thanks for sharing.

    The Zionist, CMs, MSM, atheists and other assorted miscreants must be shocked and pissed that at its core, that America is still a Christian Nation which hopefully is awaking from its stupor.

    My mother sings in a few of these choral "flash mob" videos. There are other good ones in Macy's and the Reading Terminal Market. She showed them all to me a bunch of times. [​IMG]

    I'm surprised there were no security guards sent in to stop them.

    Good to see you back, jaxvid. I was wondering if something bad had befallen you. And yes, the video is heartwarming.

    It's gotten another three and a half million views on YouTube just since I posted it here. [​IMG]

    Actually, the Messiah was written for Easter. Easter is the most important holyday in the church calender. Somehow this became a Christmas song.
    Good music is always very moving.

    I just hope this video does not result in any of these musicians being arrested for a hate crime.

    TOW, let's not worry about that... Sometimes we feel we're more constrained than we really are. Creative, innovate and passionate people will always find a way to break through any real or perceived obstacles, like Peyton Hillis!

    I really not all that worried. But then again with the insane way the criminal justice system operates that my be a real possibility. But I did make the post as a sarcastic joke. My family and I were cited last summer for playing folk music in a public park for disturbing the Peace. Seems some of the other patrons complained that they could not hear their I pod.

    Tired old White, I'll add that to the list of reasons why I can't stand iPods. I don't like people walking around with cell phones glued to their ears either. You can't even try to communicate with most people listening to iPods. They are often totally clueless about what is going on around them, and they usually seem ticked that you would interrupt their listening to say good morning or ask them a question. It reminds me of one of the original meanings of the word idiot, that being a self-centered (private) individual.

    Col.Reb, one of my pet peeves is these mugs walking about with the bluetooth ear piece yapping away. One of my buddies sports that goofy looking earpiece & I always bust his chops about it. It strikes me as very "douchebagistic".[​IMG]

    Dixie, I agree about the blewtoof. They really do look stupid, but even more so when the wearer is using it. I've found that most people who use them talk overly loud while doing so, as if they won't be heard by the person on the other end otherwise.

    "douchebagistic" That's a good one![​IMG]

    A COMMENT, in the context of this website: Even in what is an otherwise very perceptive article, it is interesting to see the depth of the brainwashing in this comment that I edited out "It was moving to see such beautiful people, from every generation and racial background".

    Now, I agree that it can be beautiful to see people from every generation and racial background working together in harmony. But this statement by the author of the article does not match well with the video in front of his own eyes. I do believe there is indeed a racial component to this video, but it is instead that of a group of people who look almost like they could be blood relatives of the composer, Handel; such as to bring to mind the the question: "who is this angelic tribe, who could have produced such a work?"
