#1 The recent, quite unbelievable sympathy extended a hate filled, murdering former LAPD cop confirms "The Age of Falsity" has now become a contagion.
Perhaps the gunman's manifesto and actions could be referred to as a.... "terminated employee's right to choose".

#2 " right to choose" that's kind of catchy sounding isn't it?
That's a good phrase that could be applied to other worthy causes.
Do you know any other situations where "right to choose" might be just the ticket?
Get a large pointed sharp steel canula and a Gompers Suction unit and spread your legs and say it slowly, "RIGHT to choose."
We all need to have our "rights" after all. Know any other catchy phrases like "One Nation under God" for instances?
What part do we need to leave out to give it the proper ring?
Or maybe we need to add something? Like what? Hope? Change? ...anything else?

#3 A system predicated upon lies will implode when the appropriate internal or external event occurs, leaving the former power class and brokers often wondering what went wrong because they came to believe the lies themselves. Of course they usually don't go down without a struggle usually costing others far more pain and suffering in a vain effort to retain that power they once enjoyed.

I think what we are doing is enforcing a resolution that has a very clear set of goals, which is protecting the Libyan people, averting a humanitarian crisis, and setting up a no-fly zone. Obviously that involves kinetic military action, particularly on the front end.
