  • It's Class Warfare, Stupid. The GOP crusade against Health Care
    • An interesting viewpoint, Professor Cole.

      But also, you need to remember that the ACA--even with it's flaws--has given millions something they never had before: affordable health care and piece of mind. And yet it was difficult to pass it into law. Nonetheless, I'll give President Obama credit for realizing that the GOP would try to trash it after he left office--but would fail.

      Twelve years ago the GOP, under another Republican President, tried to monkey around with Social Security. That move failed, and for reasons similar to the failure of the AHCA--many people were comfortable and/or depended on SS and would fight tooth and nail to prevent any attempt to get rid of it or privatize it.

      And finally, I am glad Obamacare still lives--it saved my life two years ago and took care of covering the bills when I had to be hospitalized and treated for a severe illness. I shudder to think what would have happened had I not signed up with Obamacare.

  • Top Ten Ways Islamic Law forbids Terrorism
    • Thank you for this, Professor Cole. This article blows away all of the foolish nonsense that's been spouted about islam that I've seen on too many sites, both right and left.

      Again, thank you.

  • Strange Satellite Craze
    • "In other words, worry about something else."

      Agreed. This isn't the same as Skylab's re-entry thirty years ago.

      Once again, it's more media hype/scaring the s@#! out of you for no decent reason whatsoever.

  • Qaddafi was a CIA Asset
    • "If well-meaning Americans allow themselves to become so disgusted with Obama that they permit Republicans to achieve any kind of victories in 2012, it’s just about “game over” for any hope of future for our children and grandchildren. The temptation to sit back and curse Obama is very great, yet it would be a supreme world-historical mistake on our part. Please, Get Organized Now to get real Democrats in office in 2014 and 2016 !!"


      Great points, by the way. I'm over Cockburn and his nonsense, as well as those on the Left who somehow think that Qaddafi was some hero and who are blasting the NATO intervention. History repeating itself, I suppose....saw the same thing in the 1990s with the Bosnian and Kosovo conflicts. It's also something that Nick Cohen discussed in his book "What's Left?"

      If the Left in America feels that an Obama loss in 2012 is going to be a great thing and lead to some progressive revolution, they've got another thought coming.

    • Oh man....Professor Cole, once again, another fine writeup.

      It will be very interesting to see how things develop.

  • Top Ten Myths about the Libya War
    • Professor Cole, thank you so much for this. This has got to be the best writeup I've read about Libya, and it goes a long way to punching holes in the specious arguments made by people on the right and the left.

      Excellent job, sir.
