Unfriending Rage

Preach it, David Lowery. Preach it.

Why you should Unfriend Me. A Raging Moderate's Manifesto: Let's drop the F-Bomb.:
"Yes it's time for us moderates to get uncivilized."

William Rivers Pitt | The Wrath of Fools: An Open Letter to the Far Right:
"You who worship Jesus at the top of your lungs (in defiance of Christ's own teachings on the matter of worship, by the way) helped put several churchgoers into their graves and into the hospital. You who shriek about the sanctity of marriage helped cut down a man who was about to be married. You who crow with ceaseless abandon about military service and the nobility of our fighting forces helped to critically wound the wife of a Naval aviator who fought for you in a war. You who hold September 11 as your sword and shield helped put a little girl born on that day into the ground.

You helped. Yes, damn you, you helped."

Yes. As I remember, under The Taliban, the crowd was only allowed to chant "God is great" when a goal was scored. I guess their god only likes a good offense. This country is being taken over by the equivalent of an American Taliban, and all I want to do sometimes is to stay in bed under the covers in my SF area bubble.

Yeah, god has never been much of a defensive mind. Always with the scoring.

Read Markos (Dailykos) new book "American Taliban".
