Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.

The problem in defense is how far you can go without destroying from within what you are trying to defend from without.

Proud Father 
Thursday, September 11, 2008, 08:54 AM - politiFoo
My oldest son heads off to Basic training today. He's joined the National guard to be a medic, and I couldn't be prouder of him.

From my perspective of years, I see all of his rough edges -- and want him to change those, but I can also see he has his life much more together than I did at his age. He is growing into quite a man.

Son, we're proud of you, and will be praying for you.

Blue State Blues as Coastal Parents Battle Invasion of Dollywood Values

"I'm not sure where we went wrong," says Ellen McCormack, nervously fondling the recycled paper cup holding her organic Kona soy latte. "It seems like only yesterday Rain was a carefree little boy at the Montessori school, playing non-competitive musical chairs with the other children and his care facilitators." "But now..." she pauses, staring out the window of her postmodern Palo Alto home. The words are hesitant, measured, bearing a tale of family heartbreak almost too painful for her to recount. "But now, Rain insists that I call him Bobby Ray." Even as her voice is choked with emotion, she summons an inner courage -- a mother's courage -- and leads me down the hall to "Bobby Ray's" bedroom, for a firsthand glimpse at the psychic devastation that claimed her son. She opens the door to a reveal a riot of George Jones CDs, reflective 'mudflap mama' stickers, empty foil packs of Red Man, and U.S. Marine recruiting posters. In the middle of the room: a makeshift table made from a utility cable spool, bearing a the remains of a gutted catfish. "This used to be all Ikea," she says, rocking on heels between heaved sobs. "It's too late for us. Maybe it's not to late for me to warn others."

From the Asia Times online.

McCain's choice of vice presidential candidate made obvious after the fact what the party professionals felt in their fingertips at the stadium extravaganza yesterday: rejecting Clinton in favor of the colorless, unpopular, tangle-tongued Washington perennial Joe Biden was a statement of weakness. McCain's selection was a statement of strength. America's voters will forgive many things in a politician, including sexual misconduct, but they will not forgive weakness.

What is the difference between a Black person and a White person? The only difference is superficial. Asking the same question of men and women? The differences are fundamental.

Now we know who represents superficial change and who represents fundamental change.
