    Kalliope -- Poems From the Left and it starts on a theme you just mentioned. I feel I have to share it with you. All others, please forgive if you don't like poetry in the middle of a serious diary. It's OT but not by much.

    Standing Ground
    [To all Conservatives, everywhere.]  

    Jesus stood ground when he threw the
    money lenders from the temple of God.
    He was crucified.

    Jesus loves the little children.

    Martin Luther King stood ground
    so that all would be on the front of the bus.
    He was assassinated.

    All the children of the world.  

    Rosa Parks stood ground and sat
    in the front.
    She was humiliated and jailed.

    Red and yellow, black and white.

    Nelson Mandela stood ground and
    said no to Apartheid.
    He was incarcerated for 27 years.

    They are precious in his sight.

    Mother Theresa stood ground and
    saved people from poverty.
    She was demonized by Christopher Hitchens.

    Jesus loves the little children of the world.  

    Bono and The Edge stood ground on third-world
    debt relief and the plight of aids in Africa.
    They are called media whores.

    Jesus loves the little children of the world.  

    Bill and Melinda Gates stood ground and
    donated money to the less fortunate.
    They are called celebrity grandstanders.

    Jesus loves the little children of the world.

    Wisconsinites stood ground and backed down
    the Kochs and Walker.
    They have been taunted, chided and disrespected.

    Jesus loves the little children of the world.

    A Florida monster murdered a teen and called it standing ground.
    He went home to live his life, uninterrupted.

    Jesus loves the little children of the world.

    The Florida teen stood ground and helped his brother.
    He is below the ground.

    Jesus loves the little children of the world.

    For all who stand/stood true ground, this should not stand.

    For Trayvon Martin and every other
    human who died by hatred’s hand.

    Thanks for your sweet, kind, and generous words, Wee Mama.
