It’s All About Free Trade

The newest trade agreement, the secret one, the one no one is allowed to talk about, is making its way around Congress…..as usual they use the dog whistle word to describe it….Free Trade.

The only problem I have with it is that it sounds a lot like the lies told by Clinton about NAFTA…….and now we are doing it again…….who will suffer the most this time?

I got this cartoon on my Twitter machine and it explains what the term “Free Trade” really means.

Hillary And Her Benefactors

Ms. Hillary has been the darling of the MSM for years and now she has the whole industry behind her presidential aspirations……

Before I get the usual hate mail….I am not dissing Hillary because of her gender….I do NOT like her policies and her stand on issues…..save the hate for when I write about Muslims or gays or something equally as mundane…..

 

One Cartoon Can Say It All!

Ever thought about those far right wingnuts that huddle around the tube for a FOX show or Beck’s rants or Rush or….well just about any of the so-called “patriots” in the media?  Ever wonder what they hear when they hear the basic same stuff as rational individuals?

I found a cartoon that explains it very well……..

To My Friends In The Tea Party

I know you think that you will make a better country with your ideas……personally I think you are nutz!

What started as an alternative to the 2 parties has since been hijacked by the batcrap crazies….more humorous than thought provoking.

Is Morality A One Way Street?

If you have ever taken a college level philosophy course then you will recall the terms “ethics” and “morality”…..and if you had a good professor there was a discussion on the terms……sorry I digress….the whole question of morality forces me to revisit my college days and the debates I had………

There is a situation that the world needs to confront, especially the US…..that is the subject of targeted assassinations……most times by drone.

The debate started by then it was halted by the events in Baltimore…….now the question should be….will we ever have this debate or is it a dead issue?

Is the targeted murder of an individual moral?

The American people seem to think that targeted assassination is okay…..at least by drone……

Nearly 75 percent of Americans approve of using drone strikes to target American citizens who have joined foreign terrorist organizations, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll released on Friday.

The poll was conducted in the days following President Barack Obama‘s public apology for a drone strike as part of a counterterrorism operation that unintentionally resulted in the deaths of American hostage Warren Weinstein and Italian hostage Giovanni Lo Porto.

The survey also found that six in 10 Americans support using drones to target terrorists in general, while only 13 percent oppose it and 24 percent “did not feel strongly either way.” Support is higher among Republicans than Democrats (72 percent to 60 percent), while independents are less decisive with 45 percent in favor and 12 percent opposed. In addition, 47 percent of Americans said, according to the poll, that it is acceptable to use drones to kill terrorists abroad if innocent Americans are at risk of being killed as well.

What do you think?  Is the targeted assassination moral?  What about the killing of a person on some religious mumbo jumbo….is this moral?

Moral is moral.  There is NO leeway in the definition.  Killing 20 to eliminate one is no where near a moral act.
