Will another war bring Americans into the streets ...

... or just our consumer-addled society to its knees?

Half a million people fill the streets to demonstate against an hypocritical immigration policy. Well and good, though at the heart of it, you can't help thinking that it's all about the desire to join the rest of the pigs at the trough (rather than asking if the trough is going to last forever or even deserves to).

Meanwhile, a deluded, war-obsessed, messianic, appointed president considers sending nuclear weapons against a fundamentalist Islamic government in the Persian Gulf. Where is the outrage about this? What degree of exceutive insanity will be necessary to bring a half million people into the streets in protest?
