  • America's Coming Space Wars (McCoy)
    • "...what are we going to need in the future to make sure that we are safe?"

      Question - why do the policies to make sure that the US is safe coincide so readily with securing military domination of the entire planet?

  • Top Ten Wish List Progressives should Press on President Obama
    • A few extras -

      --- Ending the US commitment to permanent war.

      --- Reducing military spending.

      --- Stopping CIA from expanding further its paramilitary role.

      On subject of women's rights, I'd like to see a constitutional amendment enshrining them, rather than women's bodies becoming political pawns every four years. It's completely unacceptable that basic rights cannot be permanently locked in, and it's a total waste of time, money, and energy that could be spent on other issues.

  • Top Five Signs of Capitalist Dictatorship in the Romney Campaign
    • I have come to the conclusion, independently, though others have reached the same point, that the Republican mindset is best understood as 'post-truth'. Due to media fragmentation, there has never been less cost to simply manufacturing outright falsehoods for short-run political gain.

      The new lasting post-truth addition to this campaign has been rape, which we are now to understand contains new forms, while women's bodies have also taken on amazing new powers that supersede biology. 'Post-truth' is a pretty easy way to understand the Republican distaste for science, too, as a necessary adjunct to the long-term disposal of the intelligentsia (codenamed 'liberals') as a meaningful threat to the agenda of the business elite (people such as yourself, Dr Cole).

      Along with the manufacture of falsehoods, Romney has also reserved the right to refute his own previous statements, even when they are on the record and made just weeks/months ago, i.e., his comments re: cutting FEMA. When the cognitive dissonance grew simply too large, silence was employed.

      I really urge people who have not done so to watch this clip of Romney brazenly refusing to engage on this simple question:

  • Medley of Grey-Faced Republican Men on Duty of Raped Women to Bear the Child (Video)
    • I am sure each of these upstanding gentlemen would react with absolute equanimity in the awful case of one of their wives or daughters conceiving a child through rape.
