Am I an extremist for opposing drone attacks on innocent children?

November 8, 2012

Again, EJ, I ask you, am I an extremist for opposing Obama's attacks on children? You called me an extremist and raised your hands to your ears and cried that you will not open up your mind to consider other viewpoints.

A Nobel Peace Prize winner can mutilate and kill children, and yet I'm the extremist because I don't support that? And others at the Athens Banner get upset with me and want me banned because I'm an extremist? Am I killing children?

Compare Obama with Dr. King. Dr. King also was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Did Dr. King order US citizens detained without trial? Did Dr. King order innocent children to be killed and maimed?

Dr. Martin Luther King said that the United States is “the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today” and nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity. The image of America will never again be the image of revolution, freedom, and democracy, but the image of violence and militarism."--Dr. MLK

Martin Luther King, a REAL Nobel Peace Prize winner unlike Obama.

So, I support someone like MLK who was a true Nobel Peace winner, and EJ supports Obama who wages war and hurts and kills children, and who also was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, and yet I am the extremist and should be called names by EJ and his ilk?

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
