we start with Cynthia McKinney speaking to Iran about how the US has killed, well, just about everybody. And wants to kill everybody else, etc.
Mark Bittman wants to decide what you'll eat and what it'll cost. Well, I want to decide how tall a tree we hang the little bastard from.
Just like gun control isn't really about guns, this isn't really about food, it's about control.
Among the reasons Sen. Reid can't be trusted- at all- is crap like this:
Supporters of the Reid plan are measuring their savings against a baseline that assumes the continuation of surge-level spending in Iraq and Afghanistan, even though the President has neither requested this funding nor signaled that he might request it. Instead, the President has signaled the opposite: a troop drawdown over the next few years. In other words, the Reid plan is claiming credit for “savings” that were already scheduled to occur, and for “cutting” spending that no one has requested.
Rather than defend this gimmick on the merits, supporters of the Reid plan are defending it by claiming that House Republicans “also included” this $1 trillion in savings when calculating spending reductions in the budget resolution that passed the House last April. This claim is false.
Remember the name Pamela Waechter? She was murdered by a muslim, in Seattle. For being a Jew. This lady has some questions:
But American Jews have found no "teaching moment" in the murder of Pamela Waechter, and the shooting of six women at work, performing the administrative tasks of the Jewish community. The tragedy of Waechter, a Lutheran who converted upon marriage and devoted her life to Judaism, remains a private heartbreak for those who loved her.
And yet, the images of the Seattle women under attack are so unbearable that the question must be shrieked from the rooftops: Where are the men?
Where are the Jewish men, who ought to be rushing to protect their wives, mothers, sisters, and daughters? Where are the Jewish men who lead the community, as Jewish women come under increasing assault, right here in America, from Islamic fanatics?
Kevin has a thought on the murders in Norway, specifically on what happens when the authorities and the public forget something:
Police, at all times, should maintain a relationship with the public that gives reality to the historic tradition that the police are the public and the public are the police; the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full-time attention to duties which are incumbent on every citizen in the interests of community welfare and existence.
But, like in (fG)Britain, the Norwegians have been taught that Mommy Government will take care of everything, and don't you dare try to do something yourself; and this is one of the results.
And last, isn't this special?
