  • Top Ten Ways the Beltway Press will treat Gen. Cartwright differently from Snowden
    • Just for the humorless I think that General Cartwright should be tied to the back of a speedboat with a 30 foot hemp rope and get draged across the ocean to Haiti where he should then be put to work on a surgar plantation under concentration camp like conditions and be prevented from committing suicide. If he survives 40 years of that he can then be shipped off Africa and clean up toxic waste in the Niger River Delta.

  • Should Memorial Day include Commemoration of Thoreau?
    • If we are going to have to say in public that those soldiers wearing a US uniform since 2003 have been honorable, then, if we have an honest discussion, after such an honest discussion any person who maintains that US soldiers served honorably after 2003 would have to admit that soldiers of the Confederacy served honorably, and that Custer's Calvery served honorably, and that even the German soldiers of the Wehrmacht served honorably in WW2. If all of those mentioned peopled served honorably, what is honor? What good is honor? Why should it be commemorated at all?

  • Is LindJohn's notion of an Enemy Combatant Racist? How about attempted Assassination of the Commander in Chief?

      OOps I meant Art Murphy.

      I think that the widespread idea that all killers are murders and all murders are terrorists is not a very accurate idea.
      Here is a list of killers.
      Ted Bundy, William Tell, Benidict Arnold, John Gacey, George Washington, Robert E. Lee, Jeffery Dahlmer, Daniel Shays, Timothy McVeigh, Richard Rameriz, Claus Stauffenberg, Bryon
      De la Beckwith, Dennis Rader, Chief Little Crow, Heinrich Himmler, the unibomber, Carlos the Jackel, the multitudes of
      American men who have killed their wives in a fit of anger,
      the numerous american men who have killed someone for the insurance money, Eddie Murphy, Erwin Rommel, Jesse James, a famous American General who as a LTC followed orders and violently drove peacfully protesting WW1 veterans out of Washington in the 1920s, Fransico Franco, George W. Bush.
      This list leads me to conclude that some of the men on this list are common criminals, some are so vile that they do not really deserve to get the consideration that a common criminal gets, and some deserve a level of consideration
      higher than what a common criminal gets.

  • Republicans not liked, even by 25% of . . . Republicans
  • Obama slights Palestinians, who stage Tent Protests
    • The Last Pequote 03/21/2013 at 6:49 am

      I personally support a one state solution for Palestine. If the people of the region can not live together the two state solution should be based on the 1947 UN Plan. That would mean a lot of settlers would have to go somewhere else. They should have thought about that earlier.

  • Everybody Leaks in Washington: What the Bradley Manning Trial Tells us about a Broken System (Schanzer)
    • The Last Pequote 03/14/2013 at 12:36 pm

      Mr. Schanzer,
      What is your greatest fear going down in history as a terrorist traitor responsible for the deaths of a billion people or going down in history as the obedient Nazi responsible for the death of one person?
      I myself would rather serve a lifetime of solitary confinement than go down in history as an obedient Nazi. Why should a private in an Army designed to defend the empire of a government that has been breaking treaties and promises for centuries obey any order at all? Why should he announce that he is not going to obey orders? When has the American government or military kept its promises when it was not convenient?
      America does not need this Army and more than it needs another John Wayne Gacy. It needs Army that will establish and maintain a Republic.

  • Venezuela and the Middle East after Chavez

      Stalin was willing to work with the murdering bastard Churchill to defeat Hitler.
      Can all problems can be solved simultaneously? The worst problems have to be fixed first

  • Taming Capitalism Gone Wild (Bill Moyers Interviews)
    • Prof. Wolff pointed out that Bankers where just doing what they needed to do, so that they could succeed at what they were told they were supposed to succeed at. So the implcation to that is that bankers were 100% bankers and 0% cititzens.
      It was quite obvious to any normal citizen that there were systemic problems with the banking system, that would negatively effect our society, although not the bankers, for quite some time.
      Yet did the Bankers even lift a pinky finger to try to correct these problems. Not only did they not lift a pinky finger they colluded and lobbied the government to make the problems even worse.
      I think that not getting a trip to the guillotine is to merciful an outcome for such people. But getting to check out with a trip to the guillotine is to merciful an outcome as well. Oh, well, shall they end up dry or wet?

  • Minimum Wage: Beggaring Workers does not Help Employment (Infographics)
    • If the USA went back to a very progressive tax rates there would be less motive for denying workers a reasonable wage for reasonable work because those employing labor would not be able to keep excess profits earned from paying workers a non sustainable wage.
      I agree that not every job should be guaranteed a wage that one person can live on. In "socialist" Europe many entry level positions are paid very little because the person holding the job is also being educated. Furthermore why does the minimum wage have to be at a rate that a person can afford the rent of a one bedroom apartment after working 50 hours. Are Americans to good to have roommates? Is it to much to ask that three people making mimimum wage share a one bedroom apartment? Shit for most of the people in the world for most of human history 6 people were crammed in to a one room and if three people were gone the three that were left felt lonely.
      So if some jobs do deserve a minimum wage and other do not
      how does it get decided? Well over here it gets decided by
      negotiations between management and STRONG (mandatory) unions. But things will probably never happen like that in the US because some Jimbos do not want to admit that sometimes Europeans have better ideas than Americans.

  • Ahmadinejad: US must Cease Militarily Targetting Iran before Direct Negotiations
    • Perhaps God did not give me the wisdom to know the difference between knowing the injustices that I can change and those that I can not change. I agree a male Corporal who wears a dress and pretends to be a Colonel can not change US policy towards Iran or abolish the Federal Reserve for example.
      But it would not at all be difficult for human beings in America in leadership positions to change their policies towards Iran, or the ┬┤Federal Reserve for that matter. In both of these cases the changes would be completely painless
      for all but a few people. Compare that with the difficulty of an industrial society transitioning to new clean energy sources and I think that a reasonable person should think
      if we Americans can not change our policies towards Iran are we Americans capable of doing anything right at all?
      Changing our Iran policy is the right thing to do and it is damned easy.

  • Paranoia Strikes Deep: A Cowering America still Haunted by Bin Laden's Ghost (Engelhardt)
    • Corpral Clinker 02/06/2013 at 6:43 pm

      Humans do not learn from their mistakes because Zeus, Poseidon, Athena, Apollo, and Aphrodite, change small details in the story over and over again.

  • Is Egypt on the Verge of Civil War? Morsi backs off Emergency Decree
    • People who instigate soccer violence should be severely punished. When this violence leads to peoples deaths a
      severe punishment is even more deserved.
      Should these death sentences against the perps be used as an
      excuse to topple Morse? What are the chances that the Muslim Brotherhood would be replaced by an Ally of Hugo Chavez and Raul Castro if it fell?

  • How Pundits got the Israeli Elections Wrong & Ignored the Influence of Women (Goldman)
    • Corpral Clinker 01/28/2013 at 1:05 pm

      A two state solution is fragging outrageous. A more accurate name for would be the one state one reservation solution.

  • UN to look into US Drone Program, but the Biggest Victim is Democracy
    • Today I read something written by a rank and file Republican that really rubbed me the wrong way. He wrote that war is terrible but not half as bad as the abject surrender policies of the Democrats. This person has been deluded in to thinking that the imperialistic policies of the Democrats are really policies of "abject surrender". This is just one more example of why I do not like to be in the same room as Republicans.

  • Netanyahu Emerges Weakened, But Most under Israeli Apartheid were Disenfranchised
    • I just saw that North Korea is pumping up its threats against the USA. Then I suddenly got the idea that North Korea and Iran are working in Tandem. Sanctions are hurting Iran right now but there is not much productive that they can do to help themselves. The North Koreans on the other hand can help them out by threatening to drag the US in to a serious Asian Land War in which there is no potential pot of oil waiting at the end of the war.
      The only thing is I do not think that there is anyone in the US administration that would be able to figure out this linkage. If there were would they care? After all one war is as good as another to boost sales for the Mic.

  • 8,775 Firearm Murders a Year in US, Equiv. of 290 in UK
    • Corpral Clinker 01/11/2013 at 11:49 am

      Ex Cops Ex Marines Ex Government types are taught to obey the law. When the order comes they will turn their guns in without any question. They will help round up all the other assault rifles as well.

    • According to google there are over 20,000 non fatal gunshot injuries in the US each year. If it were not for the skilled actions of medical personnel in the USA the murder rate in the U$A would probably be the highest in the world. I wager that most people who get shot in Brazil or Nigeria die. Not so in the USA.

  • Alex Jones, Gun control, and White Terrorism
    • Corpral Clinker 01/10/2013 at 12:12 pm

      One can not expect Alex Jones to be anything other than Alex Jones. I agree with Alex Jones that allowing people to settle the issue of gun ownership by taking a vote is pure baloney.
      Not all important issues can be solved by taking a vote.
      I have a solution that does need to be voted on because in a room full of adults in would pass unanimously.
      I would give Alex Jones a choice. He can keep all the guns that he wants or he can keep his balls but he can not keep both. Women know much more about how to handle fire arms safely than men do.

  • Firearms used in 300,000 crimes a year in US (Poster)
  • Semi-Automatic firearms are Military Weapons: Lets at least Limit the Magazines
    • Corpral Clinker 12/15/2012 at 5:11 pm

      We have to say no more than a six round magazine so that by the time all the hagaling is done we are left with 9 rounds.
