Being Liberal and a Progressive in a RED STATE is not an easy thing these days. I started this blog to vent my frustrations on our lives being taken over by right wing conservatives with their propaganda machines. I have also learned an important lesson in the last year, it is that reading is the only way to get real information, you cannot depend on the news you see on TV.

To All Military Recruiters: Go To Churches

A great idea from an op-ed piece in our local newspaper, instead of recruiting in our high schools why not go to all the Christian Churches. They seem to be the ones who are such great supporters of Bush's war:

Instead of focusing on high schools, why not pull a Carl Rove and start going after people at churches. The religious right doesn’t respect the separation of church and state anyway and think about it, the church is the perfect recruiting place. Because this is where you’ll find the most people in favor of the Iraq war, and since they have so much confidence in Bush’s brilliant leadership and world vision there’s no reason for them not to want to send their sons, daughters and grandchildren off to fight in Iraq. In fact, it’s their duty. Surely they don’t expect others to send their loved ones off to die unless they’re willing to do the same. That would be hypocrisy. So come on all you patriotic Republicans and religious-righters, now’s your chance to just do more than slap a “Support our troops” magnet on your gas-guzzling vehicle. Show some real support by marching down to your nearest recruiting station and sacrificing your sons and daughters.
