Politics and Patriotism: Torture, Religion & Truth

Entry Img

This week the US Senate released a report detailing CIA abuses related to torture and other mistreatment of detainees. Partisan lines are drawn around the issue of the disclosure of the report where some suggest that disclosure is un-American and aiding the enemy.

Notes From The White House Since the federal shut down I have spent some time most days in front of the White House in what might be called a “crazy old man supportive vigil.” I carry a home-made sign saying, “US Shutdown = Tea Party” and a smaller sign saying, “Christ is for Healthcare.” I […]

Robert, You're being manipulative and clever. Don't try to be the answer grape one second and then play the victim card the next when I defend myself. You called me out and I told you why I don't think you are right. E

Once you put it on Facebook (or any other social networking platform) you waive all rights to privacy of that information or image. It's pretty damned simple....and so are people who expect privacy after they have aired their dirty personal laundry, exposed criminal activity, made jackasses of themselves, etc. Stupid is as stupid does.
