    Problem is, over my lifetime (50+ years) the government has ALWAYS thought it was a good time to borrow money regardless of interest rates. Spend & borrow is the status quo rather than a rational decision based on whether it makes sense.

    There’s no head on a flagon of mead. It’s not carbonated, so it’s not foamy. Not supposed to be, anyway.

    So anything that results in less than 10K deaths per day should just be quietly accepted? “Government crackdown on dissidents in county X leaves 9999 dead”: no worries; less than 10K. “New disease killing 9999 per day”: why push for a cure when there are 10000 who will starve to death.

    10,000 people are going to starve to death tonight, but YOU had to read comments from people complaining about something unpopular.
    Poor baby.

    This undermining and disrespect for the President while engaged in delicate negotiations on the world stage to solve a complex international problem were standard operating procedure back in 2003.

    Fixed it for you Gypsy.

    A purring cat trumps nearly everything.

    This was always one of my favorites. Each little vignette perfectly captures a moment which is instantly recognizable without words. Well done, Mr. Watterson!

    One reason is that I rarely look at the comments. Something about this thread caught my attention.

    Aside from that, though, I recognize the difference between individuals spouting hateful words from the anonymity of an online discussion and the representatives of a religion using the pulpit to incite its followers to kill. Especially when said followers have shown such an inclination to put those words into action.

    Why are those who say (rightly, in my opinion) that we shouldn’t judge all Muslims on the action of a few radicals so adamant in blaming all gun owners for the actions of a few disturbed individuals?

    To expand on my earlier one-word reply, I consider it the duty of moderates of all religions to repudiate and drive out those who advocate violence against others. Thus far “radical Christianity”, with few exceptions, doesn’t advocate violence and those exceptions ARE repudiated. Even the loathsome Westboro Baptist group doesn’t tell it’s members to go out and kill in the name of Christ.

    No, religion itself is not the problem. Hundreds of millions of the faithful of ALL beliefs, including Islam, practice their faith peacefully. The fact remains, however inconvenient it may be, that the majority of terrorist acts are being committed by Muslims. Until that changes, either because Muslims stop blowing up people or because some other group becomes the more common culprit, Islam will be viewed with suspicion and caution.
