Dear Sarah Chayes
Are you trying (now) to tell us you didn't know back when Dubya was sitting in those photo ops with Hamad Karzai, that he was a warlord?

NPR = conduit for propaganda.

It might be fun wearing a turban in Afganistan but Flint, Michigan is a dangerous place with a depressed population and Flint needs a soap cooperative too. Come to Flint and work here and I won't believe you're another American mole meddling in the rest of the world.
Why do we need to go to the Mideast to do charity work?

Quoted in The Art of Mental Warfare
"We are like people born in a cage and unable to visualize any world beyond our familiar bars of prejudice and superstition. That opinion the few create in order to control the many has seen to it that we are kept in permanent ignorance of our actual estate."
- Gore Vidal, The Great Unmentionable, Harvard lecture

Could you pay this bill? four days in the hospital for almost $40,000 dollars.
I am fortunate, we have an excellent insurance program. Maybe you do, too.
What if we were one of the 45 million Americans who don't have any insurance?
How do we care for "the least among us?"
How do we "love our neighbor?"
What is the definition of the politically used word "compassionate"?

"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed."
-- Dwight Eisenhower
