Is Clinton Dyslexic? The Real Crisis.

According to CNN Clinton said that “Human rights cannot interfere with the global economic crisis, the global climate change crisis and the security crises.”
I think she must have meant that a global economic crisis can’t interfere with human rights and security. Without these basic rights everything else is moot. Money and security mean very little without human liberties. Turning a blind eye to human rights while seeking economic benefit is no better than abusing those right ourselves.
It seems to me that the real crisis of this generation is a crisis of conscientious, from the leaders of our country to the investment bankers and everyone else in-between.

Clinton Calls Out Repblicans on Bait and Switch

Former President Bill Clinton was on CNN last night calling a Republican party move as he saw it. I admire a person who has the courage to take a public stance and say what he or she feels needs to be said and does so intelligently. So when Clinton pointed out what he called “feigned outrage” over moveon.org’s Petraeus ad saying that it was disingenuous that the same folks in the republican party who became indignant are the ones that sought to smear the patriotism of war vetrans like Max Cleland, John Kerry, and John McCain. The most insidious instance of the three being the portrayal of Cleland with Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden. Let’s not forget also that it was members of the Republican party who gave us the term swiftboating.
