The Pink Is On Top of It

Dear Pagan,

Yesterday, the Senate passed a secretly drafted and fast-tracked resolution co-sponsored by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Republican Senator Mitch McConnell by unanimous voice vote (meaning there will be no written record of who voted yes or who abstained) "recognizing the right of Israel to defend itself against attacks from Gaza and reaffirming the United States' strong support for Israel in its battle with Hamas, and supporting the Israeli-Palestinian peace process." (You can read the full text of the bill here)


I am outraged but not surprised. WTF??????

  3. war mongers who don't even have the courage to vote for more death in the open air.

    and I'm sure they are congratulating each other on how they 'reached across the aisle'

    what a farce

    I also say a report tonight that the Treasury Dept. has refused to disclose where the bail-out money is and what the banks are using it for.

  4. Very discouraging. Haven't strength to say more. (Ed's so right)

  5. Strictly speaking, a "unanimous voice vote" means that every Senator present voted for it. They should be should be ashamed of themselves.

    One thing I'm glad to see is that there is so much grassroots opposition to this.

  6. This sucks.

    When the world sees this Resolution, they see US approving of Israel's actions.

    I'm so disgusted, and once again, ashamed to show my American face.
