The uprisings and death are hard to keep up with in the middle east. Has there ever been peace?

On Matt Drudge's site they are using a picture of President Obama depicted as a Muslim Brotherhood leader as their caption to this article. How unbelievably un-patriotic and disgusting to post that on their front page. Republicans have no shame.

@mooner Being a believer in the Muslim faith does not equate being in the Muslim Brotherhood anymore than being a Christian makes you a participant in the Crusades. They are two different things, but Michelle Bachmann and Fox News will never tell you that so you and all the other right-wing bigots go around spreading lies.

This world is never going to get better until humans grows up and quits listening to bigots and racists as if their vile hatred and indifference towards people different then them was a legitimate value to humanity. Its not, its a vicious cycle that never ends until enough people in a generation no longer tolerate it and it ends. The amount of disgraceful bigotry and hatred expressed toward President Obama and Congressman Ellison (just because they are black) makes me realize that humanity all over the world has a long way to go in the evolutionary process.
