His Master[race] Plan

So re-election will rest not on a new agenda, or an explanation of what happened,
but on a divide-and-conquer strategy. Translated, that means Obama will find fissures in the voting public over fairness, expand them, and then cobble together various angry partisans in hopes of achieving a bare majority. If Obama can cobble together disaffected young people, greens, women, minorities and the poor -- who all believe a nefarious "they" have crushed their dreams -- then massive debt and deficits, high unemployment, sluggish growth and spiraling gas prices won't decide the election. -- Enemies of the People - Victor Davis Hanson

Your Say

I think recognition and arrohbence of tyranny and sadism defines a crucial part of our humanity. Over time we seem to be generally getting more empathic and there's hope that some day we'll look back on zoos and circuses the way we look on the Roman coliseums and slave ships.There have been incidents at zoos around the world this year involving the deaths of an unusual number of animals in a very short period. I'm not sure that all the official explanations are correct and in some cases there isn't enough information to be sure. There are also a lot of ongoing wildlife die-offs and I'm getting suspicious of possible correlation.In Pretoria, South Africa last week several animals including a chimp and lemur died due to self-sustained injuries when they were frightened by a loud explosion and ran into the walls of their cages. In Tripura, India bird flu is suspected but not proven in the recent deaths of three leopards, one wild cat and 13 birds. In northern Mexico fourteen parrots, thirteen serpents, five iguanas, two crocodiles and a monkey froze to death in January when the power went out during a cold snap. In Chattanooga, TN a number of animals died the same month and it sparked an investigation that determined in some cases, the animals had been forgotten about and starved or froze to death.I've been listening to the Nine Inch Nails song Right Where It Belongs a lot lately because there's so much resonance to the first lines:See the animal in his cage that you builtAre you sure what side you're on?Better not look him too closely in the eyeAre you sure what side of the glass you are on?See the safety of the life you have builtEverything where it belongsFeel the hollowness inside of your heartAnd it's all Right where it belongs
