    Hay hombres que luchan un dia, y son buenos Hay otros que luchan un año, y son mejores Hay quienes luchan muchos años, y son muy buenos. Pero hay los que luchan toda la vida. Esos son los imprescendibles.

    •  WTF? (0+ / 0-)

      That's a little over-the-top.




      Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us.

        I've been pretty livid, a response to the lingering fear parents feel, I think.

        I feel that when people support policies that we KNOW will result in deaths or harms, those people bear some moral culpability for the positions they support.  When people support reduced environmental protections to boost corporate profits, they bear some responsibility for the deaths and illnesses that result.  When they support policies that will kill millions because of our inaction on climate change, there too is some responsibility.  When we people put corporate profits ahead of the well being of people by pushing for an unregulated for-profit health insurance industry, there is some moral culpability for those deaths that happened as a remote consequence of their polticial actions.  A similar analysis applies here.  

        My statement of that, is pretty much over the top, as you say, though.

          I just know that I get my feathers a little ruffled when somebody starts painting with a broad brush that somehow automatically includes me.

          I understand where you're coming from, though.
