How about that?
Glorious Leader must be pretty worried about his poll numbers
these days. We've captured yet another Very Important al Qaeda Leader.
Of course, we've captured these folks many times in the past, too
--always, it seems, when the american public needs to be distracted from what's going on behind the curtain. I wonder how many more Very Important al Qaeda Leaders
we're going to capture over the next three years, and how much safer that will make us?
Here's another timely example
of the compassion of the religious right. not exactly Good Samaritans, are they?
Sex and Death
Just in case you had any doubts about the priorities of folks who worry about fornication, it seems they are very invested in the idea of Consequences for Sex
. It's very important to the moral fiber of our country that there be Consequences
. That's why sex education is bad; it makes people less likely to suffer Consequences
. That's why access to birth control is bad. Unwanted pregnancies and the resultant unwanted children are Consequences
That unwanted and neglected children are Consequences
is much more important than that they are unwanted and neglected. In fact, the less unwanted and neglected they are, the less of a Consequence
they become. That's why those same folks tend to oppose funding for programs aimed to help these kids. But the concept doesn't stop there.
They also consider death to be an appropriate Consequence
for sex. Their opposition to HIV prevention and treatment programs here and around the world is well known. Now we have a new example. Preventable death from cervical cancer
is apparently a desirable Consequence
, according to these very same, er, people. Wow.
