Limousine Conservatives at it Again....
Republican Sen. Jim DeMint has used the attempted attack on a airplane bound for Detroit to go after working-class Americans. He told Fox News' Chris Wallace on Sunday, "We have to outthink the terrorists and when we formed the airport security system, we realized we could not use collective bargaining and unionization because of that need to be flexible. Yet, that appears to be the top priority now of the administration." In other words, Limousine Conservative and multi-millionaire Senator DeMint is telling us that working class Americans can't be trusted to keep our nation safe, particularly if they have the right and power to bargain for better wages and working conditions. And the Republican Party wonders why Americans don't trust them.
I just started reading "A God Who Hates" by Wafa Sultan. (It's a pretty quick read at 244 pages.) It is a window into the world of Islam, as viewed by a Muslim woman. A real eye opener as to what Arab Muslims living in the US and other "western" counties really think & say to their fellow muslims about the US and the west.
A recommended read.

Humans appear to define things in polarities; hate/love, black/white, left/right, ad infinitum. My question, then, and not limited to Islam, isn't any creator deity capable of love also, by definition, capable of hate?
Democratic Presidents and serious candidates have been pretty centered the last 30 years or so. They get corporate backing. It'll be this way until the corporate money is removed from campaigns.
IRV IRV IRV....
Ever get the feeling that the Democratic party is filled with a pack of wolves dressed as a herd of sheep?
Obama's strongest and most favorable characteristic during the campaign (for me at least)... not Sara Palin
Jim DeMint should be challenged by the union members of the fire, police and all other first responders to emergencies.
