A Dangerous Philosophy?

Highlights from the Petraeus & Crocker Show on Capitol Hill:

General David Petraeus: "We haven't turned any corners, we haven't seen a light at the end of the tunnel."

Senator John McCain: Ol' Maverick still doesn't know the difference between Iran-sponsored insurgents and al-Qaeda in Iraq.

Policy: Withdrawal is the problem, not the decision to go into Iraq in the first place.

Mission: Um ... let me just say, Senator ... that, um ... ah ...

And as Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki delivers yet another ultimatum to Moqtada al-Sadr, demanding that he disband the Mahdi Army, al-Sadr said he would consult with his fellow clerics and disband his forces if they agreed with al-Maliki.

They told al-Sadr to keep his militia intact.

The U.S. Military is blaming the violence on 'criminal elements' that are ignoring the cease-fire order issued on March 30.

The Polk County Sheriff's Department released a video of teenage girls beating up a classmate - a video they intended to post to MySpace or YouTube.

Instead, the video has been released to the media, and eight teenagers (six girls, two boys) have been charged with false imprisonment, battery, and kidnapping. The victim suffered eye injuries, bruising, and a concussion.

The victim's father believes this all came about because God has been taken out of our schools; I believe it's a failure of parenting, period - because our fundamental moral lessons must come from our parents and role models.

And a childhood built upon a foundation of school prayer doesn't explain Illinois Congresswoman Monique Davis, who loudly (and on the record), berated an activist (who is also an Atheist) for his 'dangerous views.'

"This is the Land of Lincoln. This is the Land of Lincoln - where people believe in God, where people believe in protecting their children. What you have to spew and spread is extremely dangerous," Davis said. "And it�s dangerous for our children to even know that your philosophy exists!"

Rob Sherman, the gentleman on the receiving end of Rep. Davis' tirade, was testifying in regards to a questionable $1 million grant made to a school.
