You see? Now that it is about money and not human rights finally someone cares.

I am glad and disheartened all at the same time.

We have known of the atrocities of how these goods are made for decades but heaven forbid it cost us money instead of karma.

I don’t care why we challenge them, just do it.


Palestinians have lived there for 1000 years, give them a state already

Give me a break. Premature??? I’d say its long over due.

I hate borders but what you guys are doing over there is beyond wrong.


Palin slams ’sexist’ Newsweek cover OF THE PHOTO SHE POSED FOR


CNN Political Ticker: All politics, all the time Blog Archive – Palin slams ’sexist’ Newsweek cover « – Blogs from CNN.com.

 

Help me out here. Palin POSED for this picture. How exactly is it sexist? If I didn’t know better I would swear she is on dope or something.

And to take issue with the AP fact check???? Did you think everyone was just going to lap up the lies? Seriously? You have put down in print falsehoods and fictional account of life. IN PRINT.

Get over yourself.

Well, I for one, am shocked.


Catch-22 What to do, what to do?


Pentagon bars release of photos allegedly showing detainee abuse – CNN.com.

You see, on one hand maybe it is not such a good idea to release these photos as they incriminate us as torturers. On the other, not releasing them incriminates us as torturers who cover up our deeds.

I understand why we should not release these photos. They make us look bad. But by saying, ‘we cannot release these photos, because they make us look bad’, still makes us look bad.

The real issue here is that we did do bad things. Else these photos would be heralded as proof that our interrogations worked to save the world. But they will never be that, will they?

America, if we do not own up to our mistakes, we will never be a super power again. We are done. You should just let this democracy crumble and start over with a new plan.

The behavior depicted in these photos represents us all. Hiding them only makes it worse.  But if we show them then the world will expect us to prosecute those involved and when we don’t we lose all credibility on the international stage.  That is, if we have any left.

If showcasing our actions makes our soldiers abroad less safe, then we need to reconsider our actions, let the world know that we will not stand for breaches in the Geneva Convention and that we are willing to do what is right.

It is not going to be easy. But if we sweep this under the rug, we will pay dearly in the end. We have officially become the terrorists here, no doubt about it.

Do what is right.


Healthcare Hypocrisy–Michele Bachmann’s ‘high stakes’ political game grows – CNN.com


Michele Bachmann’s ‘high stakes’ political game grows – CNN.com.


Ok. Just so I am clear. Politicos, mostly Republicans, are telling us that OUR government, by whom they are ALL employed, is not capable of running health care.  They are saying that THEY can’t be trusted. Does this seem weird to anyone else???????

THEY don’t want US to be burdened with the same HEALTH CARE benefits THEY THEMSELVES receive that WE pay for.

If they do not believe in government run Health Care, then these guys should reject the care they receive at TAXPAYER’S cost.

These guys have health care at a governmental level, that we pay for with our taxes, but they DO NOT WISH to extend to us.

Then lower their wages. Do not provide them with healthcare. Let them get their own, and GIVE us our money back.

They have voted for COST OF LIVING increases for themselves, yet left us dry.

The hypocrisy is sickening.

Liars. Thieves. Jerks.
