A pithy statement of the state of the disunion from Cup O’Joe:
I believe in the long term that things will get better, but I believe that things will have to get pretty bad before the conditions for that sort of improvement will take place. And if there are any out there that still doubt the seriousness of this struggle, let me remind you of a few things:
People who issue “hunting licenses” for those they disagree with are capable of anything.
People who think torture is perfectly acceptable regardless of the results are capable of anything.
People who fully support going to war and killing thousands of people, based on flimsy evidence and under the guise of “safety” are capable of anything.
