    No it means they should be equal citizens, not have the right to murder and steal.

    It was strange enough seeing him working extensively with George Bush, and now this.

    Sounds like with age, comes wisdom. Unless you're Sean Penn, Danny Glover, Barbara Streisand, Susan Sarandon...

    As they say, if you're 20 and a conservative, you don't have a heart. If you're 40 and liberal, you don't have a brain.
    Are you saying what he said was breaking news or that he said it?

    Many would still prefer to be handed the fish, cooked and delicately seasoned long with their favorite side dishes.

    All of that bait cutting, handling sharp hooks, gutting, scaling, cooking and dish washing is such a bother.

    He's certainly stirred up the rightwing blogosphere. I supect their reportage is somewhat biased, but haven't found a reputable independent source in the first two pages of google results.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Bono has no idea what he's talking about.
    "...it is all the more clear what we have to accomplish at present: I am referring to ruthless criticism of all that exists,"

    What drivel. Capitalism would only "help" the poor if they could then in turn use those poor to make more of a profit by putting them to work in their slave wage factories and stores.

    I'm always amused when rightwingers hear a liberal tell them what liberals think, and they ignore it and believe what Rush Limbaugh told them liberals think. It's always hilarious.

    Examining the truth is what leads to understanding gray area's. Knee-jerk populism is what leads to overlooking them and assuming that the first emotionally charged reaction must be perfectly true.
