I used to think that people, all people, were basically good inside. I believed it was basically circumstances that often drove them to do horrible things. I easily explained away the atrocities reported from war as being due to the extreme stresses of combat, people reaching their breaking point. However, I'm at a loss of rationalizations or words to explain the things I've just read in the following two posts:
The republican Mother - Conspiracy of Silence
Mind-Numbed Robot - Obama's sexual issues (They're not what you think)
This has been just sitting here for a few days, as I was too disgusted to even work on it. At least The republican Mother came through today with a little hope for humanity.
