Why We Need Republicans

A sad NY Times story from Egypt, once the proud Land of the Pharaohs. Of course it begs the question:

Why doesn't Israel look like this?

A worthy mystery to ponder.

I'm not exactly a fan of the death penalty, but...

I am reminded of a story I was once told:

When the young Buddhist monk finally reached the top of the mountain where his guru was meditating, he found the guru to be mindlessly swatting flies as he sat in the lotus position meditating.

"Guru! Guru! How can you kill flies?"

The guru seemed not to hear him, but the young monk listened intently, hoping for a reply. His mind finally opened, he heard the guru's continuing soft mantra:

"Go and be something else. Go and be something else."

Thank God. He Didn't Say "Methodist."

We Have Passed It. Hello?!?

From CNN online 9/9/07: on/from Sarah Palin:

"Palin, whose initial Facebook posting on so called 'death panels' last month is credited with spurring heated opposition to the House Democratic health care proposal, again raises the now widely debunked claim a government panel could determine which senior citizens receive vital treatments.

" 'Is it any wonder that many of the sick and elderly are concerned that the Democrats' proposals will ultimately lead to rationing of their health care by--dare I say it--death panels?' she writes. 'Establishment voices dismissed that phrase, but it rang true for many Americans.' "


There are legitimate arguments on both sides (all sides?) of the health care debate. Sarah’s own words are revealing: “Is it any wonder…” She refers to the results of her continuing scare tactics.

“Establishment voices dismissed that phrase, but it rang true for many Americans." Yes, even most who disagree with the idea of a government run or overseen plan acknowledge there would be no “death panels.” It “rang true” because she’s gotten the adoration of those who dismiss rational thought, and for them her words “rang true.” She doesn’t claim it is true.

Sarah’s played a crucial role in waking intelligent people of all stripes to the fact that this country is in its current condition because we’ve too often listened to the political bull shit from politicians and religious leaders of all persuasions—not that all of them are bull-shitters. We’ll thank her one day for, as she becomes more and more transparent, she is scaring people away from her ilk and into using their God-given intelligence.

We have passed the tipping point. Wake up. Hello?!?
