Consequences

August 25, 2009 § Leave a comment

Chris Matthews just reported a WW2 vet, attending a townhall meeting with Iowa’s Grassley (R), went a wee bit overboard, comparing Obama to Hitler, and said he would take a gun to Washington if he could get a few people to go with him.

Seriously?

The climate of fear, irrationality, and thinly-veiled threats is absurdly provocative & the tree of small-minded tribalism is bearing fruit in these town hall meetings. Our current body politic appears completely devoid of reason. This may, in fact, always be the case when speaking of the affairs of Man–sadly.

I simply cannot see easy or quick way out if this nonsense. RIP universal healthcare, cap and trade; et al.

Ideas have consequences. The fear tactics have worked yet again & here, the continued & sactioned neglect of fellow human beings goes on.
