The real world
It wasn't hostile to swift boat John Kerry? It wasn't hostile to use Willie Horton? Democrats are militant? Democrats are sheep compared to the GOP. Being proud of Cheney and Rumfeld is really sick. Most of the time conservatives wouldn't recognize respect if it hit them in the face. They are so full of fear and anger. Really this whole piece is a complete lie, but that was the whole point, wasn't it? Extreme conservatives base their whole philosophy of privilege on lies. Take anything to the extreme, and it loses any truth it started with. The truth is the enemy to extremists. They cannot bear it. Their whole purpose is to avoid it. They go through life living in a fantasy. They don't have the strength to face reality.

OpinionJournal - Thinking Things Over Responses: "Our Arrogance Is Our Weakness
Mike Ballard - Denver

The reason we were in Vietnam was the false 'domino theory'--that communism would spread like cancer. Today Vietnam is a bastion of free market economics and capitalism--and an ally of the U.S.

Besides the obvious differences in terrain and climate, the biggest strategic difference between Vietnam and Iraq is religion. Thousands of would be martyrs are flocking to Iraq to fight the infidel--that is, us--from every Muslim nation in the world.

We didn't understand the Southeast Asian culture, and we don't understand Arab culture either. Americans assume every nation thinks like us, and if they don't they certainly should. We had the opportunity in Iraq, but we are blowing it because we don't have enough interpreters, we don't understand Iraqi customs, and we think that we can impose our ways on them.

Our arrogance is our weakness. We are a nation that came into being as an oppressed people that rose up against the greatest power in the world. We have forgotten where we came from, and this is a sure formula for failure. Until we learn humility and respect for other cultures, we will continue to dishonor ourselves on the world stage."

The Democratic Party

The Democratic Party: "This week, Boise State University College Republicans have joined the list of College Republicans who have held anti-immigrant 'games' by creating a despicable ad to promote a conservative speaker on campus. The ad advertises a food stamp drawing and a free meal at a 'Mexican restaurant' for students who 'climb through the hole in the fence' and submit illegal identification. This recent derogatory stunt comes on the heels of national news reports that confirm the rise in hate groups who are feeding off of anti-immigrant sentiments. Sadly, while these activities continue on America's campuses and while Republican presidential candidates use harsh words on immigration for political gain, the national Republican Party has remained quietly on the sidelines."

Indeed Obama is a cross between Kennedy and Howard Dean. I wish him all the luck in the world, but I'm afraid of him getting swift boated. He talks about campaigning on a higher level. Isn't that what Dukakis tried to do?

Recreational Drugs and their level of harm

March 24, 2007 Just how dangerous are recreational drugs and what’s the most effective way to classify drugs as the basis for law enforcement? With the technologies for creating new substances now well ahead of the law’s ability to even recognise them, it’s clearly time for a new way of doing things. Last year, the UK’s House of Commons Science and Technology Committee tabled a report entitled Drug classification: making a hash of it? which concluded that the current UK classification of drugs into A, B and C classes should be replaced with a new system more closely reflecting the harm they cause. One of the most striking findings of the report was that based on the committee’s assessment of harm, tobacco and alcohol (in red on the chart) would be ranked as more harmful than cannabis, LSD and ecstasy. The report also stated that, on the basis of harm, "alcohol would be classed as B bordering on A, while cigarettes would probably be in the borderline between B and C". Now a leading researcher on substance misuse has expressed concern that the proposed classification regime is too limited in its approach to serve as a basis for changes in the law.

FBI: Extremists seek school bus work - Yahoo! News

FBI: Extremists seek school bus work - Yahoo! News: "WASHINGTON - Members of extremist groups have signed up as school bus drivers in the United States, counterterror officials said Friday, in a cautionary bulletin to police. An FBI spokesman said 'parents and children have nothing to fear.'

Asked about the alert notice, the FBI's Rich Kolko said 'there are no threats, no plots and no history leading us to believe there is any reason for concern,' although law enforcement agencies around the country were asked to watch out for kids' safety.
The bulletin, parts of which were read to The Associated Press, did not say how often foreign extremists have sought to acquire licenses to drive school buses, or where. It was sent Friday as part of what officials said was a routine FBI and Homeland Security Department advisory to local law enforcement.
It noted 'recent suspicious activity' by foreigners who either drive school buses or are licensed to drive them, according to a counterterror official who read parts of the document to The Associated Press."

New Face of Jihad Vows Attacks - New York Times

New Face of Jihad Vows Attacks - New York Times

The enemy of my enemy is my friend. There is a Public Enemy song called "Fight the Power". People who fight the power are my friends. Power corrupts. Terrorism fights this corruption. It is right wing extremists of foreign lands fighting the right wing extremists of this land. I dislike the methods of both sides. I hope they destroy each other. I can, however, understand right wing extremists of foreign lands better than I can understand those of this land. It is as if those of this land have become evil and must be destroyed. I am not a violent man. I do not feel it is my role to join either side of the struggle. I must admit, however, I am not on the side of the rich in this country. They must eventually be brought down. It is only a matter of how.

Swift Boat Leader Hired To Run Right-Wing ‘Online Community’
Yesterday, Washington Post columnist Robert Novak reported that, a new right-wing advocacy group, has hired Jerome Corsi as a senior political strategist.

Vanguard describes itself as an “online community of Americans who believe in conservative values,” and Novak claims it is a “right-wing version of the leftist MoveOn.Org.”

By hiring Corsi, Vanguard has made it clear that it intends to hit below the belt and be more than just an “online community.” Corsi coordinated the Swiftboat Veterans for Truth attacks against Sen. John Kerry (D-MA), and plans to use Vanguard to “similarly undermine Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton” for her progressive policy stances. Media Matters has documented Corsi’s posts on the right-wing Free Republic site. Some excerpts:

On Islam: “a worthless, dangerous Satanic religion”

On Catholicism: “Boy buggering in both Islam and Catholicism is okay with the Pope as long as it isn’t reported by the liberal press”

On Muslims: “RAGHEADS are Boy-Bumpers as clearly as they are Women-Haters — it all goes together”

On “John F*ing Commie Kerry”: “After he married TerRAHsa, didn’t John Kerry begin practicing Judiasm? He also has paternal grandparents that were Jewish. What religion is John Kerry?”

On Senator “FAT HOG” Clinton: “Anybody ask why HELLary couldn’t keep BJ Bill satisfied? Not lesbo or anything, is she?”

Liberalize me

I commend you on a very thoughtful post. I, however, am against a strong military. What did it get us in the cold war, but Vietnam? As a vietnam veteran I saw the horrors and the shame of a strong military. The Soviet Union fell on its own. It was a bad idea and it paid for it. Terrorism will do the same. As for Falwell, Robertson, Dobson et al I pray for them because they are indeed going to hell. Religion causes as much evil as it does good, and we are seeing a lot of evil these days. Bin Laden is a good social conservative. He has devoted his life to stopping the split between church and state. Conservatives from different nations just like to kill each other. Liberals on the other hand think we should all join together and be one. States rights and even nations rights need to be subjugated. The whole earth should be the ultimate decider. Thank you for your time.

Balloon Juice: "Cat Travis Says: Your comment is awaiting moderation.

“It would have been worse with Al Gore.”
Give me a break! Are you people brain dead? I can’t believe it. Bush will indeed go down in history as one of the most inept presidents ever. But Al Gore would have been worse? There is absolutely no sense in that statement what so ever. We might as well just nuke ourselves. It’s like saying McGovern would have been worse than Nixon. This nation deserves destruction if people think George Bush was the lesser of two evils.

Message to Hillary haters

Conservatives are right to hate Hillary. Hillary will make us a better country. They won't be able to swift boat her. Hillary's example shows how vain and vile the right wing is. She shames them. She's like FDR. The right will have no voice with her in office. Fear her you useless beings! The future holds little for conservatives. That's why they always want to live in the past. Well, the future is coming. Get used to it.

the cost to Israel itself of its occupation: the deterioration of its democracy, the loss of international prestige, and the growth of terrorism and Islamist extremism as a direct result of its oppression of the Palestinians.

After four decades, friends of Israel, especially American Jews, must lose their inhibitions against “washing dirty laundry in public” and finally raise their collective voices against the self-destructive madness of Israeli policy.

United Press International - International Intelligence - Czech Pres: Environmentalism is a religion

United Press International - International Intelligence - Czech Pres: Environmentalism is a religion: "Environmentalism should belong in the social sciences,' much like the idea of communism or other '-isms' such as feminism, Klaus said, adding that 'environmentalism is a religion' that seeks to reorganize the world order as well as social behavior and value systems worldwide" : Message Boards : Message BoardsWhen will america see that the war on terror is the same as the war against communism? Communism fell from its own weight. We need to let Al Qaeda do the same. It won't be quick, but us being scared all the time only makes them look stronger. We don't have to torture ourselves. There's no way we can defeat them through conventional means. Relax, they'll beat themselves. There are some things you can't cure. You have to live with them. Acceptance is the best weapon that we have. They cannot win, but neither can we. Let's not spend all our time worrying about them like we did the communists. If they want to live in caves let them. Running scared does not make us a great nation. Finding a way forward and learning from the past would.

Understanding the Holocaust

Understanding the Holocaust: "After the Holocaust, is there a Jew on earth who would choose to be born a Nazi instead of a Jew? After the Holocaust, is there a Jew on earth who does not see the need for a nation of teachers? Who else will help mankind rise above its potential for such cruelty if not the Jews?"

Afghan anti-corruption chief is a convicted heroin trafficker -

Afghan anti-corruption chief is a convicted heroin trafficker - "KABUL, Afghanistan — When the deal went down in Las Vegas, the seller was introduced only as 'Mr. E.' In a room at Caesars Palace hotel, Mr. E exchanged a pound-and-a-half bag of heroin for $65,000 cash — unaware that the buyer was an undercover detective. The sting landed him in Nevada state prison for nearly four years.
Twenty years later and Mr. E, whose real name is Izzatullah Wasifi, has a new job. He is the government of Afghanistan's anti-corruption chief.
Wasifi leads a staff of 84 people charged with rooting out the endemic graft that is fueled in part by the country's position as the world's largest producer of opium poppy, the raw ingredient of heroin.
President Hamid Karzai's office won't say if he knew about the drug conviction when Wasifi was appointed two months ago as general-director of the General Independent Administration of Anti-Corruption and Bribery. Wasifi, a childhood friend of Karzai, is the son of a prominent Afghan nationalist leader."

No U.S. Backup Strategy For Iraq

No U.S. Backup Strategy For IraqThis war and vietnam show the true nature of the USA. We are so rich that we believe in the true evil of conservative extremists! We'll survive this, but then what? Who will be next? Could the terrorists be right? Is there anyway we can overcome our own propaganda and become a credit to this world? Does the world have to say what we said about villages in vietnam, "the only way to save them was to destroy them."
