  •  I am wondering why we use red lines for (3+ / 0-)

    everyone but ourselves.  We have red lines in Israel and Syria and just about anywhere in the Middle East.  But what about red lines around the atrocities that are going on in our own prison systems.  There atrocities are those  being perpetrating in Gitmo.  What about the corporate chemical warfare used on our citizens when chemicals are dumped into our water, ground, and into the air?  Why is the chemical warfare in the name of greed, profit and free market capitalism not marked with red lines?  We are allowing monopolies of our news, television and radio systems, isn't information control the first step to tyranny?  This is approved by one political party and we have no red lines around that.  Our freedom of speech and voting rights and free elections are being threatened and the only freedom that excites people is the one on guns, and the others have no red lines.

    I think we need to take the crayons away from the politicians since clearly they are only using them from graffiti.  Our children have a better sense of right and wrong than they do.
