As long as you're here

And we're linking to other sites, Molly Ivins is precisely right, and every word she says deserves to be considered.

And her moral outrage should also be shared by all of us.

In the name of Jesus Christ Almighty, why are people who are representing our government, paid by us, writing filth on the Qurans of helpless prisoners? Is this American? Is it Christian? What are our moral values? Where is the clergy on this? Speak out, speak up.


Some people have got to be held accountable for this, and that would include Congress.

My question is: What are you going to do about this?

It's your country, your money, your government. You own it; you run it; you are the board of directors. They are doing this in your name. The people we elect to public office do what you want them to do. Perhaps you should get in touch with them.

Yes. And do more than that. There's more to be said about this. Even as I write, I realize that below, I mentioned Abu Ghraib and Iraq. But will the whole world look at us, one day soon, and mutter the word: "Guantanamo"? And how will we respond?

But that's for later. At the moment I write this, (for me, anyway), it's getting close to sunrise....


  1. Great blog but man, does the white-on-black hurt the eyes! Please, please change it. Plus, you should switch to Haloscan comments - they have automatic installation for Blogger users and it's simple. You will soon come to HATE Blogger.

  2. Robert M. Jeffers,

    You're a blogging fool, man!

    And this is a great blog. Keep up the great work.
