Jackson and Cheney

Wow, my updates are off. Two separate sentiments today.


Michael Jackson:

Is it just me, or is it sickeningly depressing how much the public feels the need to intrude on this ordeal. He hasn't had a private funeral. His right to be mourned by those he cared about, has been torn away. Churchill, who until the death of Pope John Paul II held the record for largest funeral, had a private ceremony. but Jackson doesn't get that. Maybe not a good comparison of the caliber of person, but the general idea is still there.


Cheney and secretes:

I find it immoral and offensive that this guy had the gale to call atheists, liberals, and gays unpatriotic for holding beliefs that the constitution says they can hold, while this guy snaps the scroll in half, and burns it. Government needs more morality, and not the Christian right's facsimile of morals, but genuine morals. That includes staying the fuck out of other's business when it doesn't hurt or affect anyone else.

I quote From The West Wing:

"

Major Tate: Sir, we're not prejudiced toward homosexuals.

Admiral Percy Fitzwallace: You just don't want to see them serving in the Armed Forces?

Major Tate: No sir, I don't.

Admiral Percy Fitzwallace: 'Cause they impose a threat to unit discipline and cohesion.

Major Tate: Yes, sir.

Admiral Percy Fitzwallace: That's what I think, too. I also think the military wasn't designed to be an instrument of social change.

Major Tate: Yes, sir.

Admiral Percy Fitzwallace: The problem with that is that's what they were saying about me 50 years ago - blacks shouldn't serve with whites. It would disrupt the unit. You know what? It did disrupt the unit. The unit got over it. The unit changed. I'm an admiral in the U.S. Navy and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff... Beat that with a stick.
