George Washington reports this event in his life Corroborated by this man and after having read the most recent article and comments at Wizbang I am completely disheartened, by the utter callousness of not only the article but the comments. I take it as a sampling of the one side in this great verbal battle between should we help the down trodden or throw them off a cliff as the barbaric ancient Spartans used to do.
Wizbang and the ultra right wing are advocating a metaphorical throwing them off a cliff. We can not unless we are willing to face the consequences of doing so.
The consequences are large scale civil unrest even civil war.
