  • United States, Israel opposed Mandela, supported Apartheid
    • The United States is comprised of 300 million or so people, some land, and a government, in this order. When the opportunity came, I as one of the 300 million or so people, President Barack Obama according to his recent eulogy, and whole lot of others supported Nelson Mandela. To accuse the US of not doing so, is the equivalent of accusing us all, including you of supporting Cheney, Rumsfeld and those other bozos who temporarily seized power. We very simply didn't

  • Department of Justice Spying on AP Reporters' Telephone Contacts Threatens Democracy
    • Question #1 is who in the Administration is so afraid of what might be uncovered, they willing attack the Constitution.

      Question #2 is how long before the power of Democracy, first recognized by our Founding Fathers, and thereafter by educated, intelligent and brave Americans, including to his eternal credit JC, will expose this tyrant and those who support him or her.

      The movie will not end until the good guys/girls win.

      Believe it.

  • Iran Bazaar Strikes signal Misery, not Sanctions 'Victory'
    • This missing element in all of this is Iran offering anything resembling a reasonable explanation for enriching uranium. Until that occurs, and with the alternative being violent attacks, I think we have to accept what is happening now as the best alternative. Its not pretty. But its a whole lot prettier than bombing.

  • How the people's rights are abridged (James Madison Poster)
  • The Dilemma over Syria
    • Don't agree at all.

      We are better than not to do everything we can to keep people from being slaughtered.

      Imagine if you will, that the United States could be sufficiently together to issue a warning to Assad to stop the killing or we would be tossing some cruise missiles at his last known location. Sure, there would be a lot bitching and the philosophers would have a field day. But that's a tomorrow problem. The opportunity is now and I can not see us being proud if we don't do something today

  • Mubarak on Trial but W. Is Not
    • Don't count on President Bush and his entourage avoiding prosecution forever. Recognize that is usually takes some time out of office to prosecute many other torturers. Above all recall the insight of Dr. Martin Luther King: "When our days become dreary with low-hovering clouds of despair, and when our nights become darker than a thousand midnights, let us remember that there is a creative force in this universe, working to pull down the gigantic mountains of evil, a power that is able to make a way out of no way and transform dark yesterdays into bright tomorrows. Let us realize the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice."
