Somehow this madness must cease. We must stop now. I speak as a child of God and brother to the suffering poor of Iraq. I speak for those whose land is being laid waste, whose homes are being destroyed, whose culture is being subverted. I speak for the poor of America who are paying the double price of smashed hopes at home and death and corruption in Iraq. I speak as a citizen of the world, for the world as it stands aghast at the path we have taken. I speak as an American to the leaders of my own nation. The great initiative in this war is ours. The initiative to stop it must be ours.

– Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (on Vietnam rather than Iraq).

It is somewhat Ironic that a John McCain for president banner ad appears at the top of this page at this instant.

use adblock. it’s easy, and you can keep most things you don’t like off.
woot isn’t really a political place, in case you think it might be. there’s a whole internet out there for that kind of stuff.

If I’m not a child of god does this still affect me?
