They need a sense of proportion

That is what I think the Progressive / Permissive Left is missing in this country. They have no sense of proportion.

So, the Federal government passes a law in 2001 which permits the FBI to see the records of what books a terror suspect is checking out from the local library, and it is Totalitarianism.

The Bush Administration refuses to give prisoners of war at the Guantanamo Bay detention facility full US criminal court rights, and suddenly he is Hitler (or is that Rumsfeld?) and American soldiers are Nazis and Soviets.

And now, we have a report that:
A man used flammable liquid to light himself on fire, apparently to protest a San Joaquin Valley school district's decision to change the names of winter and spring breaks to Christmas and Easter vacation.
What the school district calls the breaks will appear on the school calender and will matter nowhere!

Folks: get a sense of proportion, will you? Please!
