A Poem To Feel The War

SHOCKING!! PAKISTAN'S MILITARY RULER IMPOSES MILITARY RULE! (AND WE DO NOTHING).
The administration seeks in the Middle East and South Asia solely and exclusively to impose its will for its purposes regardless of the will of most of the citizens and regardless of the overall public good of the people. That is only democracy to the extent they believe it is democracy at home as well. Bad news, folks; really bad news.

Say Goodbye To America
(17 comments) Nearly three-quarters of the United States Senate just passed a resolution condemning the Move On ad against the Petraeus report.

Working Harder To Make The Rich Richer
New data shows Americans are the most productive workers mainly because we work so much more, but wages are flat. Data also shows our CEO's make three times more than European CEO's. We work more to make our richer richer. Period. I know you know, but read the details and weep.

WE ARE ALL THE LEAST AMONG US
(3 comments) With Bush denying health care to poor children while cutting taxes for the rich and funding war for energy, here is a meditation on the political imperative of assessing our leader's humanity the way Jesus advised he would assess his followers: By the way they acted toward the least among them.

The Will To Be Bound Is All We Really Have
In a government based on principles, the will to remain bound to them is all that protects the people's rights. Our government is losing (or has lost) its will-ingness. Do we have the will to insist they honor our social compact?

WAR IS NOT A GAME, So Quit Talking Like It Is
(1 comments) Progressive media and leaders must cease discussing the Iraq war in terms of "winning" or "losing"; "doubling down" or "gambling." Using this language wrongly links wars to games, and makes it harder to convey the true horror of the Iraq War. War is hell; not a game. We need to stop using the language of games and start using the language of the serious failure of humanity the Iraq War really is.
