In whatever belief one has, whatever way our paths may find
Whether we call on Son or Moon or of the human mind
Tonight let us pray, spell, and above all, hope for peace
In spite of threats that such will cease

September 3rd's little snark fest given by the GOP was interesting in what was said certainly. A lot of anger, a lot of insults, and certainly the speakers said things that were directed at Joe Biden and Barack Obama.

So, in that point, one wonders just why Sara Palin had so much to say about the idea and the actual work of "community organizers"?

Well, sorry friends, but it wasn't about your local pastor or library getting together to gain a few funds for the food pantry or addition to the library's computer room.

It was about... well... Democrats.

About Tony Snow

by RElland

This is going to be a short one ladies and gentlemen.
If you want to think about slamming his record, fine.
If you want to condemn him for being a Bushbot, go for it.
But...

I've been fairly quiet when it comes to the whole Obama-Wright controversy, and while I'm very proud of what was said by Barack Obama, there were things said, and done by the media that left me with a vague feeling of being... oh disturbed.

Then it hit me all once, before the speech actually, that what I was seeing was essentially the first amendment being used to CENSOR the first amendment.

More below the fold...

Funding kills

by RElland

I could talk about how being so dependent on another nation like Iraq (where the money pours into and not one damn thing but death comes out) is actually a betrayal to the idea of being an independent nation and that it spits on the dreams of our founding fathers to be an independent nation from all other nations.
But I'll let that go to another diary.
Because well...

It comes down to this.
Continued funding just gets more Americans killed.

My apologies for this being a short diary. But I felt this should be written now.
For a number of years, I've heard many complaints about how the news rarely shows the harsh truths about the Iraq War and the thought that Americans would seriously turn against the war if they had the chance.
Well the door just opened. On Monday Night ABC World News showed graphic scenes of violence and destruction on it program about Iraq.

The footage shows U.S. troops called in to help after a Bradley fighting vehicle was blown up. ABC showed the upside-down vehicle in flames, noting that six American soldiers had died in it.

No, no... let's look at defunding...

by RElland

I think this might be a good idea... really...
From this diary about the email sent out by Rahm Emmanuel
http://www.dailykos.com/...

I think it might be the start of something good.
The fight about the defunding has been so totally consuming that it became a distraction.
So, let's look at the more subtle arts of defunding shall we.
And the reasons why certain offices should be defunded by Congress...

Shall we go defunding crazy?!
