"Playing the race card" has become the clarion call for racists to do nothing more than

prevent the subject of racism from even being brought up. Just like the "politically correct" meme.

There is nothing wrong with being "politically correct". Being politically wrong can be deadly.

There is nothing wrong with "playing the race card" to point out racism. Ignoring racism can be deadly.

I prefer life and equality for me and everyone else.

So the Police Chief gets a vacation with pay when his direct reports do not arrest a killer.

It must be good to be Chief. I guess Trayvon Martin didn't have the right to stand his ground.

We are living in a country that allows war criminals to run it, bankers to rob it and killers to stand their ground and kill.
I realize it takes time to change negative issues but after a while the saturation point is reached and there either a change
or the positive drowns in the overload.

My wish is that history reflects that we as a country fought back against the repressive theocratic corporate death loving fascism that is currently trying to smother our rights as human beings.

“Give to every other human being every right that you claim for yourself - that is my doctrine.”
― Thomas Paine, The Age Of Reason

Things are getting out of hand in our country.

I have been reading, hearing seeing and witnessing many disturbing things regarding the rights we as Americans have had for decades and centuries being dismantled in a subversive yet obvious manner. Subversive and obvious sound like contradictions but when ignorant people are trying to destroy something created by people with high I.Q's they expose their ignorance. I predict there will be an obvious reaction, be it legal, peaceful, and possibly violent to the degradation of common rights to all people in America. We better get ready and be aware because the right wing is in all out assault mode. If anyone thinks I'm exaggerating all you need to do is read American history or world history. We are not immune to the common experiences of mankind. History repeats itself like it or not. I have been on the planet long enough to have personally witnessed the things I've mentioned and I'm sure I'm not the only one on DU that has.

Was it God's will that Andrew Breitbart died?

I am not advocating any religious belief just wondering what the Christians who believe in predestination think of this question.

I personally believe in free will from a spiritual perspective. Philosophically speaking, from a atheist's perspective, free will is an obvious concept.

If it is God's will, then the right wing evangelicals who idolized Breitbart must be really questioning why God would want Breitbart to die.

Considering the Christian Bible says idolatry is a sin that could be a double whammy?

The Komen and Planned Parenthood funding argument on the news talk shows is an excercise in futility

The talking heads on MSNBC and CNN apparently have no sense of discernment. They have guests on there shows that continually say, "I don't want my tax payer dollars going to abortion" or "I'm donating to fight breast cancer not help abortion doctors."

Number one. I didn't want my tax dollars to go to the illegal war in Iraq or any other unnecessary war. If we each had the right to specifically say where our individual tax dollars 'can' and 'can't' be used the federal government would be even more of a bureaucratic behemoth than it is now. It would be chaotic. If these right wing tea bagging theocrats succeed in not wanting their money going to abortion then I do not want my money going to war, executions, private corporations or torture.

I have yet to hear a talking head with two brain cells to rub together make that argument. Either they want the right wing to win the argument or they have no sense of civics as to how taxes are allocated.

Number two. Regarding the Komen situation, the right wing is equating charity with taxes. They say because you are able to claim a deduction to charity on your taxes that means your tax dollars are going to abortion. One thing the right wing has down to a science is stretching credulity.

The comparison of President Obama by the GOP with the cruise ship captain is ridiculous, but,

there is a more appropriate comparison to the cruise ship captains actions.

George W. Bush sat in an elementary school class reading My Pet Goat while 3,000 people were incinerated on American soil under his watch.

After that he was hiding so he couldn't be attacked as was Cheney who hid out in a undisclosed location. After that the country went down hill and attacked a country that had no reason to be attacked thus damaging the US economy. Bush did zip while the Ship of State sank into a dark financial pit.

If there is 'any' comparison that is appropriate to the cruise ship captain's actions it is George Bush on 9/11 and the years that followed. It was a totally avoidable historic occurrence. Bush ignored intelligence just like the ship captain ignored danger to the cruise ship.

And Gawd said, "Hey Newt. Screw around on your wife, sorry, wives." And after the man called

Gingrich obeyed Gawd, Gawd look down and saw it was good. Gawd spoke to Newt and said, "You, my son, have obeyed me and I shall give to you the miracle of being the master of the most powerful kingdom in the world." The man called Gingrich passed the holy test and is waiting for that glorious day when he shall therefore be-eth the President-eth of the United-eth States-eth of America-eth.

So be it.

And Santorum will continue to surge out at the end.

It will be a frothy mix of innuendo and out your window.
The polls will be lubricated to demonstrate who will come out in the end.

The elitist system that is in place says you must be blessed by the humans that are better than you

before you can express yourself. If you are not educated at the correct universities or don't pay the correct organizations their fees and dues you are not considered worthy of expression in any form of art. That is why the majority of popular culture we are fed is bland, vanilla and edgy as a wet noodle. Money determines who is worthy of expression on a mass scale.

Because Germans were witness to a dictatorial regime that took them into an unnecessary

war, suppressed free speech, tortured people, murdered innocent people by the thousands and enslaved them with propaganda. So they wanted a different form of government, finance and commerce.

Hmmmm... sound familiar? Obvious subliminal comparison is transparent with an oxymoron thrown in relating to reasoning for the seasoning.
