Thanks, laura k.

Bradley Manning is a hero. It's disgusting to me that the person who exposes the war crimes is in prison while those that committed the war crimes go free.


Here's Michael Ratner's appearance on Democracy Now! this morning . . . .

It is disgusting and maddening. Not only do they go free, they lead lives of wealth and privilege. They are feted around the world as "leaders".

It's enough to make one call for revolution.

Thanks back atcha, WEB, and thanks for the link.

Exactly!

I've taken to signing off on emails to some of my more enlightened friends with "dfdttr" - which stands for: doomed, 'f'n' doomed 'til the revolution . . . .
