ARTICLE: Must You Forgive?

An excellent, nuanced, well-enumerated, well-explained counterpoint to the fluffy feelgood religious concept of always forgiving.

I’m definitely saving this one so I don’t have to explain myself again! Woo!

BIG BROTHER: The Surveillance Speech: A Low Point in Barack Obama’s Presidency – Conor Friedersdorf – The Atlantic

And yet, there are many who still think Obama is a good president because he’s better than McCain would have been.  

That’s kind of like saying vomit is a good food because it’s better than eating feces.

This is a nice deconstruction of Obama’s bullshit, which half the country seems to swallow hook, line, and sinker.

Obama has taken away as much civil liberty as Bush at this point, if not more.

Great job.
