Sartre

It is death which is this victory, for death is the final arrest of Temporality by the making-past of human Totality by the in-itself.

Sartre

Shall I pass judgement on my character, on my nature? Is this not to veil from myself at that moment what I know only too well, that I thus judge a past to which by definition my present is not subject? The proof of this is that same man who in sincerity posits that he is what in actuality he was, is indignant at the reproach of another and tries to disarm it by asserting that he can no longer be what he was.

Sartre quote

It is necessary then to recognize that destruction is an essentially human thing and that it is man who destroys his cities through the agency of earthquakes or directly, who destroys his ships through the agency of cyclones or directly. But at the same time it is necessary to acknowledge that destruction supposes a pre-judicative comprehension of nothingness as such and a conduct in the face of nothingness.

I'm not sure this is fair...

The media really created the problem. They are the ones who turned his whisper into a shout heard around the world. I say charge them, they no doubt made more than enough to cover the bill from their coverage.

This is the missing key in the debate...

Conservatives think about and talk about Muslims, Arabs and terrorists like they are all one in the same. However, not all Muslims in America are Arab, even in the Middle East, Iranians are not Arab, they are Persian. Americans need to develop a better understanding of Islam, and the people both here and around that world who choose that as a faith.

Jon Stewart's 'Million Moderates' Rally Organized by Two Liberal Clintonistas

Jon Stewart's 'Million Moderates' Rally Organized by Two Liberal Clintonistas: "

The Washington Post promoted the dueling Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert liberal satirist rally on Saturday's front page with the blurb: "Comedy Central sets up opposing stunts in October. Your dilemma: Join Stewart's 'Million Moderates,' or Colbert 'Keep Fear Alive'?" What Post TV critic Lisa deMoraes discovered is that there are no moderates organizing this event on the last weekend before the midterm elections. Comedy Central is relying on two liberal Clintonistas.

Don't go off the reservation...

It is times like these that make me love Greg...

Greg connects Dr. Laura's use of the N word on her radio show, with the building of a mosque near ground zero.

In doing so, he makes a solid point. I am sicked by those who oppose the mosque, and want the government to take action. This is America, and the government cannot do that, not while remaining the country so many have fought and died for. I understand people died on Sept. 11, and families are hurt but they are being used by parties on the right with their own agenda. I firmly believe that waving around your grief is not only tacky, but a weak political argument. That is where I agree with Greg the most, this shouldn't be a political discussion like it has been.

The forces against the mosque have turned this into a fight, and a fight demands defensiveness from both sides.

Even governments make mistakes...

Two things about this story have always bugged me.

1) There is an assumption in the conspiracy community on both side of the political spectrum that every government mistake is a cover-up. While I am not discounting the fact some cover-ups are played off as mistakes, I want to be shown why I should believe that. I haven't seen a solid why in this case.

2) The cry for those pushing the story has always been that the administration used TIllman's death for political ends. Simply put, isn't that exactly what opponents to the war are doing? Two wrongs do not make a right.

Cop Pulls Out Gun On Motorcyclist

You can skip to 3 mins in... I have questions about the true nature of the encounter after watching the video. In it you see a marked police car behind him, at one point before he is stopped he looks back. If he was being chased before the stop, it would put things in a different light.
That being said, it does not change the fact he shouldn't have been punished for recording the stop, and the police treatment of him following the stop itself is inexcusable.

This is just wrong in so many ways...

The officer was in an un-marked car, in plain clothes. He gets out and brandishes a weapon, while yelling at the victim. The man, who had no criminal record had his life torn apart for no reason, this smells like police terror and intimidation tactics to me.

If anyone should be going to jail it is the officer involved in this case.

This is nuts... Police should be recorded.

If anyone needs to be video taped, it is the police. I say people should do it more often, not less. I also think laws should encourage the taping of police encounters. They are often dangerous, and often the events of them are disputed. Video tape of police events will encourage good cops to be good cops and help remove the bad cops.

On a side note, I bet no officer is going to complain in a case where an abuse claim is made, but the video proves it to be false.

Based on what Ann is saying it was never the intent of the 14th amendment.
