The Catalogue of Ships (Homage to Homer Shamelessly Lifted from William Rivers Pitt)

The eloquent Mr. Pitt:

Rush Limbaugh
James Hansen
Phil Gramm
Ann Coulter
John Berbyshire
Don Davis

And many many more.

"You false patriots who bring assault rifles to political rallies, you hack politicians and media personalities who lied through your stinking teeth about "death panels" and "Obama is coming for your guns" and "He isn't a citizen" and "He's a secret Muslim" and "Sharia Law is coming to America," you who spread this bastard gospel and you who swallowed it whole, I am talking to you, because this was your doing just as surely as it was the doing of the deranged damned soul who pulled the trigger. The poison you injected into our culture is deeply culpable for this carnage."

From William Rivers Pitt in a recent edition of truthout.

Many speak, but many do not listen. Many others speak, and too many listen uncritically.

We have a nation of uncritical thinkers. Critical thinking is not valued. It does not seem to be taught. Believe what you want and mold the world in your image??? One bullet at a time?? One untruth at a time??
