Unfair Comparison

Amnesty International declared the U.S. prison camp at Guantanamo Bay "the gulag of our time" for the alleged mistreatment of prisoners and aggressive interrogation techniques that have come under fire in recent weeks. I mean, it's EXACTLY the same, isn't it? Oh, except for the thousands upon thousands of prisoners that died in the Gulag.

I'm just grateful they are not comparing it to a concentration camp (l'havdil). It drives me mad every time someone who does anything slightly objectionable is refered to as a Nazi. Maybe that is why I'm so edgy so much of the time....

As accurate as Gaza residents who compare the misguided policies of the Sharon government to practices of the Nazi regime

So Ms. Zubaida Khan wants to compare Guantanamo to GULag. Why not look at prisons in moslem countries? Oh wait, she is a moslem.

The Tax Return Crack-Up<3>
Granted, there are usuallyMicrosoft Office 2010write-ups when presidential contenders make their tax returns available, but the coverage falls far short of the Office 2010
