A question for your Senators and Representatives from Swopa over at Needlenose:

"Was the essentially non-existent political progress in Iraq the last six months worth 700 American lives? What progress can you guarantee during the next six months that will be worth another several hundred American lives?"

How they answer THIS "benchmark" (to use current jargon) question will tell you who to vote for or not vote for. We need to ASK this question. It is way too easy to assume that OUR congress-person is better than the rest, but, I am here to TELL you, that it just aint so. We need to TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for our roles as supporters of the system that brought this bloodbath on these people.

No comments:

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
