I'm Frustrated.

Allegro does politics. Well I've done it off and on for awhile. This one I wrote for a politcal blog run by a friend. She helped lay out the research in a better framed manner, but the rest is mine.

That is a FANTASTIC article, allegro. Really, really well done. Thank you.

Good article, Allegro, well researched and argued. Shame there is no Hobby Lobby in the UK to boycott!

I don't know if you could or if you're interested, but I'd like to see you tackle persecution mentality (yes, I know how irritating it is when people tell you what you should write...sorry). Because the way people scream "Religious Persecution!" when people don't want others' religions in their faces really makes me puke. And the mentality that sees persecution in everything.

I totally agree with you, Allegro! I do consider myself a Christian, but I do not agree with a lot of the things some Christians say and believe.

I am actually interested in the topic Grim. I suspect what is at the heart of it, but its just intangible that although my suspicions are likely correct, pinning it down will be tough. That may take more than an hour or two, which I don't mind.

Very well done.
Years ago Mother Jones did an article on Operation Rescue. It was well done.
