Where'd all the good people go?

The Olympic torch is in the United States, in the San Francisco Bay Area today... protests have begun days ago in preparation of the arrival of the torch of freedom being paraded by the worlds most evil empire - China.

Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, and I have agreed for the first time: Boycott the Olympics. Do not support the human rights violations and repeated offenses against humanity and freedom that have been committed by the government of China.

And to top it off, our fearless leader, GW, is supporting the Olympics by attending the opening ceremonies WITH the ruler of China...

What happened to the America in which I was raised?

Where is the strength and anti-communist efforts upheld by everyone from Kennedy to Reagan?

Do we care more about commercialization and globalism than human rights?

Where is the outrage? Where is the humanity?

And why the heck do I find myself allied with the most liberal socialist democrats? Why is this not a united struggle? Have we all become complacent?

I ask... Where'd all the GOOD people go?


  1. I am just as troubled as you are. Here I am agreeing with Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, and millions of San Francisco protesters.

    I'm questioning my own existence right now.

  2. I don't mind breaking ranks... but on an issue of freedom and liberty, that I have to break ranks with the "conservative" leadership, is just insane...

    Perhaps we truly are the party of wars for oil, and standing up for liberty only if it serves our own special interests... (should have seen the signs in the lack of action in Darfur!)

    If there was ever a time to break ranks, now is definately the time... Bush is very wrong on this issue!

  3. and he's also wrong on all the dictators he supports.

    Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Ethiopia, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Yemen, Oman, Qatar, the U.A.E, Bahrain, Equatorial Guinea, Kyrgyzstan, and all the rest. Is it any wonder that a lot of people don't like us?
