Flag Draped Coffins

Many Republicans complained that Democrats have shown the famous picture of flag draped coffins being unloaded when returning to America. It seems to me that the Republicans are OK with the soldiers' death for a useless, fake war but not with allowing the American public to see them dead. After discarding other reasons for the Iraq War, like WMDs about to be used on us, the BushCo has settled on the idea of spreading Democracy and showing our hegemony over the troubled Mideast. Once again, real events show that this is nothing more than an RNC talking point.

The current mess between Palestine and Israel shows exactly how much authority the U.S. exercises over the Mideast. And oil is headed for $80 a barrel. This administration can't get anything right.Unless, of course, they want the oil companies to make even larger profits. This administration wouldn't do that at the expense of the general public, would they ?

Quote of the Day

Many of you have seen this quote, but every day it seems more and more relevant :

First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left
to speak out for me.

-Pastor Martin Niemoller
