Some things may be legal, but that doesn't make them right. I think herding people into facilities meant to hold cattle is one of the Not Right things. (I might feel just a tad differently if any of the presumably legal UsofA residents sitting in the corporate penthouse offices had been herded into cattle pens alongside the workers they hired.) (But probably not. Wrong is wrong.)

And, speaking of "wrong" and "the Bush Administration", I've been thinking about this one since I first read it a week or two ago. The Bush Administration: Reaping the Whirlwind.

History rolls around more quickly these days, so George Bush got to see his "legacy." Ten trillion dollars of national debt, before the stock market bailout is completed. (Gottal love those "small government" conservatives!)

Okay. More than 10,000 people have signed an online petition urging the Army to let an Iraqi puppy come home with a Minnesota soldier, who fears that "Ratchet" could be killed if left behind. What about the human beings left behind? How many people have signed a petition urging the government to let them out of the war zone? (I'm not dissing people for signing a petition for a dog. I'm dissing them for not signing a petition for a human being.)

Via Ahistoricality, our Today In History moment, from 96 years ago. Do follow the link and read the entire speech. It's interesting on so many levels....

Voter suppression (or planned intimidation) in Ohio. I had to go look up, "voter caging".

I like satire but I felt that mocking McCain's POW experience (even though he's used it for currency so many times he essentially devalued it himself) was a bit low.

You can read Lies, Damn Lies, and (Conservative) Statistics, but I don't think manipulating stats is confined to one side of the political spectrum.

(Congratulations to Jeremy and Andrew.)
