Obama cried because the Connecticut schoolchildren were not Pakistani. Is that statement untrue?

So, no, the twenty schoolchildren killed at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown Connecticut were not Pakistani. Thatís apparently what everyone is so upset about. Iím rather embarrassed how distraught Americans are about the Connecticut school shooting, considering equivalent child-massacres happen daily in Pakistan, victims of US drones, to no public outcry. In Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, and all the far reaches of our multinational corporate empire, child killing is public policy, far from being a subject of public anguish. 37926

If you don’t see Merry Christmas in the window, no, you don’t go in that store! The Star of David used to do that trick.

This season's War-On-Christmas email is pushing a holiday ditty whose refrain goes "If you don't see Merry Christmas in the window, then you don't go in that store." Seems like it might be easier to mark those stores with a Star of David on the window, or would that be too obviously Nazi? On the other hand, it is refreshing to see even Dumbfox recognize the imperative of targeting commerce to make your point heard. So, boycotts do work? 29370
