Just read this article about the email reactions to Ed Koch's recent endorsement of Obama. I'm linking to it because I found the quote of his referenced in the photo caption interesting: “There is no acceptance of dissent anymore."

I think it'd be fantastic if our political discourse were more open and civil. I'm also 4000% confident that if it were, the polls right now would be nowhere near as close as they currently are.

For Your Health

Every American needs to see Sicko, and then do something to cure this nation's disease.

Pseudo-randomly poking around the web during my lunch break today, I stumbled upon this about the Supreme Court's failure during the 2000 election. I wasn't aware that they said right in the decision that it cannot be used as a precedent.

History Lessons

Saw a show on the History Channel last night called Strange Egypt. My take-away from the program was how little has actually changed for humanity over the centuries. We generally hold some different beliefs, have different social structures, and use some different technologies, but that's really it. Fundamentally, people are still people; we just have some different stuff.

All of that stuff, by the way, we make up. Society is the way it is now because we've made it this way. Things don't have to be the way they are, and in fact, will not be this way forever. We don't follow pharaohs around anymore, for instance.

One significant difference between now and then, however, is we have more history now. We've seen a lot more stuff, and have learned a lot of lessons from it. Well, we should have learned a lot of lessons, but sometimes I question whether people are actually paying attention.

Shouldn't we know more as a people now? Shouldn't we all be a bit more wary about media and governmental propaganda, even if it comes from our sources at home? Why doesn't the general populace seem aware of that yet, and why don't we openly oppose the current administration more? Look at this. This Bush guy is supposed to be working for me, right? This is America and a democratic republic and all that right? Why is he continuing to do nothing good? How can the people of this nation continue to allow all this to be going on? Why hasn't this man been impeached for turning this country into everything it's supposed to stand against? Isn't treason illegal here?

Seriously, WTF

How long are we going to let conservatives lie to us and pretend like nothing is happening? Am I the only one bothered by this?
