Some pols will stoop at any level to "make a point" especially when they want to "save taxpayers' dollars," (an expression some of the most tightfisted love to accentuate with a perfected sneer.) Oklahoma's US Senator Tom Coburn is one of those pols, and has he found his poster, er, You Tube, "child" to use in his drive to get the Social Security Administration to tighten up its standards. But take a look at th is video that's fast making its way around on You Tube.
No conflict can ever be resolved without an honest, thorough examination of the history behind it. In the case of Israel and Palestine, there are a lot of people who clearly aren't interested in such an effort. Most notably, the government of Israel and their wholly owned pawns on Pennsylvania Avenue and Capitol Hill. These people don't want you to know the full history because it reveals their stated desire for peace as a total fraud.
I'm bothered by the new terms "BLOWBACK" and "PUSHBACK" which someone has coined to replace "BACKLASH". These newly-minted words are being repeated mercilessly on The Ed Show and The Thom Hartmann Show and are rapidly gaining currency among the progressive radio audience.
I am a registered native American, granddaughter of a veteran of 2 wars, daughter of a Korean War veteran, married to a disabled Vietnam War Era veteran, sibling to several veterans, and a granddaughter of a member of the USO during World War II. i am now a veteran of the war on drugs.
Please don't be afraid to liken the activity of corporations to the Nazis. My mother is Danish and grew up in Nazi-occupied Copenhagen. Early in Georgie Bush's first term, she said said that she was very concerned about the direction the country was headed because it reminded her of the Nazis. Don't cut off callers into your shows just because people use the term Nazi. History is repeated because people forget history because history fails to be discussed openly and broadly.
Why Liberal Sellouts Attack Prophets Like Cornel West
Damn this is a good article! I wonder what Thom thinks of this subject?
Sunday we took a walk to our gated community clubhouse. The pool was closed as yet, however we did have a new flag flying. AN AMERICAN FLAG; UPSIDE DOWN. One of the four illegal mexicans that this management hired attached our flag upside down and put it on the flagpole. There ya go. A stupid illegal mexican that gets paid $12.00 per hr to do next to nothing all day and then his ignorance and stupidity hangs our flag upside down. Only one of four illegal mexicans management has hired can speak a little american english.
Great job, reading Anciet Sunlight, can not wait to read others. We will wim.
