Friday Quickie

So, Gates finds the conditions at Walter Reed "unacceptable" and that Bush was "understandably concerned and emphatic". I'll just bet he was. Must have been a very interesting meeting. It's not like his standing can take many more hits. It's awfully hard to run around saying you support the troops when it's obvious to the whole world that it wasn't really a top priority. First New Orleans and now Walter Reed. At what point will the American people have had enough of incompetence, cronyism, corruption and indifference? I hope it's soon.

Oh good grief! When I was a little kid I thought it was pretty cool that I could say one cuss word, under the right circumstances, and get away with it. People need to get a sense of humor. They also need to realize that they can't protect their kid from everything and language should be one of the least of their worries. Protecting them from having a closed mind would be infinitely more constructive.

Speaking of closed minds, what the heck was this guy thinking? Berating a grieving, recently bereaved woman. Shameful.

  1. Hi Deb,

    How much evidence is necessary before more people discern that the "support the troops" mantra is a purposeful deception? These young people are cannon fodder for corporate profits and geopolitical gain. They have been deceived into fighting a war and others have been deceived into thinking that leaders of the political right are actually sincere in their assertions about war and the troops. People who tout so-called Christian values while beating the drums of war either can't discern good from evil or are actively being deceptive.

    War is evil, pure and simple. The only humane way to "support the troops" is by ending all wars and establishing true and just solutions to human needs.

    Here is Wisdom !!
