the way from the Gungeon to insult President Obama -- especially today. You and your kind should really declare your right-wing Republican affiliation and be up front about things. That way you won't be so surprised when your pizza comes.

23. I'm a Democrat and a progressive in almost every way and I read many different blogs & forums.

 

It seems to me one ought to do that to keep up with the world instead of staying comfortable in one where everyone hews to a narrow band of purified ideas. I've found that Republicans have no monopoly on hypocrisy and Democrats none on brilliance.

27. I find no difference when it comes to the proclivity to stampede and or mass knee jerk reaction...

mixed with the usual hypocrisy and or double standard. Just like it's rather stupid to believe that no one in the GOP is worth listening to or quoting. What ...half of the US people are stupid? The stupid is on both sides ...it's just not 50/50.

32. I believe the US military calls them "bug splat".

http://english.pravda.ru/hotspots/terror/28-05-2012/121243-us_drones_mosque_pakistan-0/

Bullseye! Bug splat! US drones target Mosque in Pakistan? 28.05.2012

Bug splat. This is what they call the strike from a drone, an unmanned aircraft flown from a computer console thousands of miles away somewhere in deepest US of A. Bug splat. In other words, murdering people in Pakistan, Afghanistan. Bug (insect) splat (crushed). The latest "Bug splat" took place on Thursday in Pakistan. In a Mosque, apparently...

11. From "City On The Edge Of Forever"

Edith Keeler: I think that one day, they'll take all the money they spend on war...

Kirk: And make them spend it on life?

Edith Keeler: Yes. You see the same things that I do.

Kirk: We speak the same language.

Edith Keeler: The very same.

33. "Killing a few is a national tragedy,

...but killing MILLIONS is acceptable US Foreign Policy."

According to many independent sources, The Clinton Administration was responsible for the deaths of over 1/2 million Iraqi Children due to the Clinton Era sanctions on Iraq.
Madeleine Albright was Bill Clinton's Secretary of State during that time,
and in an appearance on 60 Minutes, she was asked about the death iof these 500,000 Iraqi children.

On May 12, 1996, Albright defended UN sanctions against Iraq on a 60 Minutes segment in which Lesley Stahl asked her "We have heard that half a million children have died. I mean, that's more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?" and Albright replied "we think the price is worth it."

35. We and a few here are in an exclusive club of the DU rational my friend.

Blows my mind ...the indifference to the plight of children in other countries ...and in our own. It's just the irrational rage of the moment which will soon pass ...over taken by the latest American Idol or Dancing with the Farts.

24. I regret that I only have one recommendation to give to this post.

 

The insanity that grips this nation is simply mind-boggling. Just here in the good ole US of A, we've stood idly by while 25,000 plus kids have been violently slaughtered just from 1999 - 2007, with nothing except empty speeches and the occasional story on a slow news day, but this tragedy looks to be the spark a movement that won't make one whit of difference.

Who cares that tens of millions are living in third-world conditions in the richest nation on earth? It's the guns that must be stopped now!

26. It is telling when a society will spend more on weapons than food for children and the elderly...

I have been thinking for at least 6 months now that we may have a problem of trickle down violence.

28. I think it comes from the children on up and in that case it would take a few decades...

to change this society away from its violent behaviour. The bullying and name calling is evident right here on DU. I am sure those who do such things do not go unnoticed by their own children. They shouldn't be surprised if their own children get reprimanded for bullying others in school. Stop teaching children that name calling, bullying, hitting and fighting is the way to solve problems. Stop the media from showing men hitting women or fighting in the movies and on tv. Oh but we have the largest gorilla in the room teaching everyone that war and killing is the way to solve problems. Its called the Pentagon and the MIC. Very few are willing to address the problem at its root and IMO no one is going to fix it.
