Random thoughts on a hot summer day

  • Did you ever notice that the Red States who profess to have greater "moral values" than the Blue States comprise the same parts of the nation that supported slavery, Jim Crow and the KKK, while opposing the Civil Rights and Voting acts? (Hey, if the Right can use broad brush strokes, why not the Left?)
  • How do "moral values" mesh with being the only nation in the world to use atomic weapons on living beings?
  • Why does pedophilia not spark the same level of outrage as abortion on the part of our religious leaders? Barney Frank was right when he said that for Theocons, life begins at conception and ends at birth."
  • Why does the "right-to-life" not include opposition to capital punishment?
  • Where is the concern for the people of Iraq who we sought to liberate from Saddam? They were oppressed under his rule (and he is indeed a VERY evil person) but now are they all insurgent sympathizers whose deaths are so insignificant that they should not be catalogued and documented?
  • Where are the Islamic religious leaders professing outrage about the hijacking of their faith by extremists?
