Delightfully funny and on point!

But if you're (shall we say) "delicate" about language, you might not like it...

Violent religious extremism

The following came today in a email from the Sojourners folks:

Religious extremism will not be defeated by a primarily military response to it. Ample evidence proves such a strategy does not work and often makes things worse. Religious and political zealots prefer huge military responses to the threats created by Islamic extremism. 
... 
The shock-and-awe strategy of military might simply has not worked. Fundamentalists actually flourish and win the most new recruits amidst overly aggressive military campaigns against them.

It seems kind of obvious to me.

Not so much to those determining our foreign policy, however.

The difference

Yes, I know. Both the parties are "owned" by corporate interests. Nevertheless there is a REAL difference here:


Indeed.

You know, when I first read what Romney had said about the 47%, I didn't believe it. I thought someone had made it up. A few minutes later, I realized it was real. This is really, really hard to believe. To say he should be ashamed of himself is putting it mildly.

True. So true.

When will the ordinary person wake up and realize this?

A really good question

Honestly, I don't see how the Republicans somehow captured the perception that they're more patriotic than the Democrats. I think it's appallingly unpatriotic to be willing to see America go downhill just so they can defeat Obama.

So, so, so important

Whenever anybody asserts that there's really no difference between the parties, that they are both corporately owned, I reply with these three words: The. Supreme. Court.

Really, people. I so agree with this graphic:

Do look at this

It's been aptly said that we're each entitled to our own opinions but not our own facts!

The Big Dog speaks

This really sums it up, doesn't it?‎

"In Tampa, the Republican argument against the President's re-election was pretty simple: we left him a total mess, he hasn't cleaned it up fast enough, so fire him and put us back in." 

 - Bill Clinton

Hmmm....

Isn't this an interesting observation?
