Our heroic brothers


Some conservative governors are threatening to not accept refugees from Syria. They cite security risks after the Paris attacks by the Syria-based Islamic State.

These are refugees who are escaping the brutality and chaos of their home country.

“I will not stand complicit to a policy that places the citizens of Alabama in harm’s way,” wrote Gov. Bentley of Alabama.

These are the same folks who, incidentally, proudly call themselves Christian and block every attempt to keep guns away from criminals and the insane.

And these are the same conservatives who supported the invasion of Iraq that opened the pandora’s box.

Me – me – me


Iraq or Central California?

I am reminded that we all experience and see the world in our own unique way. Do you see colors the same as I do?

“The American fascists are most easily recognized by their deliberate perversion of truth and fact. Their newspapers and propaganda carefully cultivate every fissure of disunity .…They claim to be super-patriots, but they would destroy every liberty guaranteed by the Constitution. They demand free enterprise, but are the spokesmen for monopoly and vested interest. Their final objective toward which all their deceit is directed is to capture political power so that, using the power of the state and the power of the market simultaneously, they may keep the common man in eternal subjection.”

Vice President Henry A. Wallace, April 9, 1944.
