It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

Hope and Change Got No Home on the Range

Add the environmentalist camp to the growing list of those waking from the Pampers kool-aid with the announcement that the Resident-Select is planning on naming Ken Salazar as Secretary of the Interior.  Apparently 15o environmental groups signed a letter to Pampers urging him to nominate Democrat Congressman Raul Grijalva to the post, seeing him as a strong advocate for protection of public lands, and endangered species.  These groups are less than hot about Pampers' Salazar pick.

Kieran Suckling, from the Center for Biological Diversity in Tuscon, is quoted on National Pampers Radio's "All Things Considered" as saying, 
"Ken Salazar is very closely tied to ranching and mining and very traditional, old-time, Western, extraction industries. We were promised that an Obama presidency would bring change."
Once again, we tried to warn you dingdongs, but did you listen?  Noooooo.  Any guesses on which pooch is gonna get screwed next?
