Odds and Ends

Two observations to start this gray February day.

1. The bill before the Arizona governor which would allow merchants to refuse service to gay people is yet one more example of unbelievable bigotry and ignorance at its finest.  It needs to be vetoed and apparently that is what's going to happen.

It never ceases to amaze me how ignorant so many people can  be. 

2. Afghanistan president Hamid Karzai refuses to sign an agreement to guarantee the security of U.S. forces serving in his country.  First, even if he did sign it, he couldn't enforce it.  Second, this is clearly an example of the U.S. putting armed forces personnel in harm's way in a country that does not support us.  The next course of action is exactly what the president has threatened to do:  get out...NOW.  When and if we detect terrorist activity, send in the drones.  That way no American soldiers or marines are at risk.

Thus endth my rant...for today anyway.
