They Just Don’t Stop

I thought Sarah Palin’s “blood libel” comment was crude and stupid. And I understand that many found it offensive, though I can’t say I was really offended in any personal way. The truth is very few things actually offend me. But this actually did. The Washington Times says that the reaction to Palin is part of an “ongoing pogrom” against conservatives in America.

That strikes me as offensive and even disgusting.

I really don’t know what’s with this people.

Wrong thing to say on TV – This Week’s Award Winner

” I say why isn’t Iraq paying us back with oil, and paying every American family and their soldiers that lost loved ones or have injured soldiers — and why didn’t they pay for their own liberation? For the Kuwait oil minister — how short his memory is. You know, we have every right to go in there and frankly take all their oil and make them pay for the liberation.”

– Sean Hannity, Fox News

… and let’s get into another war. Why not use the 5% of House salaries and expenses that Boehner got in?

A Quote for this Day of Observance…

“A true revolution of values will lay hand on the world order and say of war, “This way of settling differences is not just…   A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.”

– Dr.  Martin Luther King, Jr.
