Just Asking

I wonder how many of those students appalled by Barack Obama's stance on abortion are appalled by the Catholic Church's stance on child abuse? I guess it's just more fashionable for the religious right to protest a Democratic president than their last hope for their failing hypocrisy.

Every single one of those protesters should read StageLeft's post.

Pick Me David~!

Here's hoping that I make the cut -- not that my personal self-esteem is based upon the number of friends I have on Facebook.

David Akin, Time to pare it back on Facebook: Goodbye to some FB friends

I've come to the conclusion that less is more on Facebook -- fewer friends means greater value. So, over the next little while, I'm going to be saying goodbye to Facebook friends and Facebook apps.

On a day when we've got record bankruptcies, (when) we've got unemployment skyrocketing, all this government can think of doing is running attack ads on me. This is the old style of politics. We are in the middle of a serious economic crisis. This government needs to grow up and do its job properly.
