A Sad Day

How much bad news can our nation suffer in 24 hours?

TragicDozens of U.S. Troops Killed as Copter Shot Down in Afghanistan
We must remember these heroes who gave their lives for our country. These years of war have brought nothing but misery and today is truly one of the saddest days I can recall.

Disgraceful.  S.&P. Downgrades Debt Rating of U.S. For the First Time
This is the result of right-wing, Republican greed. They're even willing to bring the entire country down as long as their rich constituents get to keep more $$$.

And VERY, VERY DANGEROUS. Texas Rally Renews Debate Over the Boundaries of Perry’s Faith
We must always stand vigilant against the fascists. Fascism spreads like a contagion if left unchecked, especially during tough economic times. The Governor of Texas is the latest fascist to rear his ugly head. In his thirst for power he tries to destroy one of the central tenets on which our great country was built: The Absolute Separation Of Church And State and the embracing of the Age of Enlightenment, where science is respected and where faith, while important, should always be a personal matter and one not dictated by the State. Let's all do our part to ensure that we don't let the Perry's, or the Palin's, or the Bachmann's pull us backwards. Enlightenment always hangs by a thin thread and we can so easily start falling backwards. But we all must do our share to ensure that doesn't happen, especially in times of crisis like we now find ourselves in. The wonderful freedom which we live under today should never be taken for granted. We all must be ever vigilant to ensure it is not taken away! History, after all, has a habit of repeating itself.


  1. The downgrade of the U.S. credit rating is simply an evaluation by Standard & Poor's wherein the continuing attempts of Liarbama to take this country into a socialistic state is not sustainable. A family cannot spend more than they earn. The same applies to our government.

  2. A family can spend more than it earns, as long as it repays what it borrows. Also, why do you call President Obama a liar? What do you think he has lied about?
