We Keep Trying

Signing a petition might not change anything in the grand scheme of things. But the very existence of such a petitition; very need for such a thing, is truly awful.

Anyway, I like the statement. Too bad those who run our government feel otherwise.
The America I Believe In doesn't torture people or use cruel, inhumane treatment... doesn't hold people without charge, without fair trials, without hope, and without end... doesn't kidnap people off the street and ship them to nations known for their brutality... doesn't condone prisoner abuse and excuse high-ranking government officials from responsibility for that abuse... doesn't justify the use of secret prisons... and does not rob people of their basic dignity.
thanks to Worried at Is America Burning? for the link

Exactly so. I remember the nation we were the last time I heard Ray Charles sing "America, the Beautiful"...and BushCo has made us dirty and evil in the eyes of the entire world. People should shun the whole mess of them forever.

Agreed. Knowing we have a government which will not heed any petition, or any other desire of the people, is even worse.
