Good For Petraeus

 

 U.S. General David Petraeus said on Thursday it was "disturbing" that a manufacturer had embossed biblical citations on rifle scopes sent to Afghanistan and Iraq, and the firm announced it would voluntarily halt the practice.

People Who Don't Want To Pay For Someone Else's Health Care Already Are

 

One of the criticisms of the health care bills passed by the House and Senate is that people who already have health insurance may have to pay for coverage provided to the uninsured. "I don't want to pay for somebody else's health care" is a common complaint...The "I don't want to pay for somebody else's health care" mantra tells me these people do not understand much about the bills approved in Congress.

 

They also do not understand much about insurance.

Subject: Bush and 911

 

Hi Lisa,

I have thought for years why no one has made a cartoon of, or
even publicly commented on this analogy when referring to Bush and 9/11.

The analogy being that if an army sentry was on duty and fell asleep,
and the enemy raided the army post causing many casualties and much damage, would the army
ever put that same soldier on guard duty again. Obviously the answer would be "no".
They would most likely put him in the brig and dishonorably discharge him.
If it happened in time of war he might even be executed. So why would the U.S. public reelect that same sentry,
Bush and the GOP, to safeguard us from any possible future 9/11's? The first one already happened on their watch.

Do you know of any cartoonists or political writers who might be interested in pointing out this
observation? I'd love to see someone do a cartoon or make this point in commentary. Thanks,
Bob

The Final Corporate Takeover

 

 

We cannot sustain the present form of huge international corporate mega-capitalism. It is an out of control monster: a willful environmental vampire and oppressor of human rights. Its rulers and masters make sociopathic decisions on a daily basis.

 


 

Pope to priests: Go forth and blog

 

The pope, whose own presence on the Web has heavily grown in recent years, urged priests on Saturday to use all multimedia tools at their disposal to preach the Gospel and engage in dialogue with people of other religions and cultures.

And just using e-mail or surfing the Web is often not enough: Priests should use cutting-edge technologies to express themselves and lead their communities, Benedict said in a message released by the Vatican.
