I am currently slogging through Cahill’s “Dirty Wars”, 500 + pages of cruelty, horror, double-dealing, lying and cover-ups, and on nearly every page, death brought by frivolity. “Frivolity” I can’t think of anything better to replace it. I caught Stewart’s show last night, he did a bit to say that Rumsfeld and Cheney had no [...]
More news from Syria, a couple of Bishops nabbed, driver killed.

Who are the public going to believe crazy dirty fucking Hippies or a serious Ph.D who teachers at the War College or a 3 star General who did time in the Middle east during the Gulf War?
How ’bout the Sub Vice Manager to the Prime Minister of Israel Preznit?
While the White House has long said that no option is off the table in dealing with Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons, Obama stressed that he continues to seek a diplomatic solution.

Properly fostered, fed with an appropriate amount of publicity from the media, what Sen Warren is doing could very well inspire a growth of populism which could overwhelm “too big to fail”.
could would . . . let’s see what happens.
But for now, Warren’s on the right track.

My experience with Libertarians is that when they ARE right, they’re VERY right.
There was a little girl,
Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
When she was good,
She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.
And here, you can eat that gun

Lipstick sales for Pigs are SkyRocketing!!!
We’ve heard of it here in the Middle of Nowhere Kansas.
Just another long time reader who wishes you well and always hopes for a few dribs more.
Doubtless, this is all Obama’s fault.
I thank God that you’re back in Congress again, Rep. Grayson. The only greater blessing would be if you represented my Cong. district. :) We’ve just had a big rock buzz our Home Planet and a smaller rock bombed Russia. I wonder how much of a deal it would be to switch our defense industries [...]
And if anyone does expect a few things once in a while and gets them . . . . what’s Olbermann doing these days, I wonder
to paraphrase Madeline Albright . . .
What’s the point of having this superb “Political Capital” that you’re always talking about if we can’t use it?
And from the other Portland on the East End of the continent:
Dean, as all of Maine knows by now, lit up the Portland Police Department’s switchboard Monday when he attached a new sling to his Daniel Defense assault rifle, slapped on a fully loaded, 30-round magazine and spent 3½ hours strutting his stuff from his apartment in the West End down to Back Cove and back.
Little wonder that 65 eyewitnesses, the searing memories of the massacre Dec. 14 in Newtown, Conn., fresh in their minds, frantically called police to report what most probably thought was a crime in progress.
There is balance in the “Force”.
Larue @ 30:
What’s yer gripe
I know, some folk get twitchy at the sight of an opposing thought.
It’s all Obama’s fault.

Can’t tell if he’s “R” or “D”. ( Check your title, one might assume Fox Snooze snuck in and “made a mistake”. )
Now if his good buddy Pat Roberts, well-known water carrier for Dubya’s crimes, would retire, we’d get someone better.
You’d have to admit, it will be more entertaining with more FU here and there.
I caught the Ed Show last night, interviewing Debbie Washerman Shulz, spouting her talking points about the ‘Merrican People wanting balanced pain for everybody, with exceptions, natch.
Eddie’s turning into quite the steno boy, no push back at all.

Video Game diplomacy and war fighting and murdering. How easy is that?
I rarely comment here, but I too stop by almost daily to read your thoughts and others too, on both sides of the Obama fence.
FDL imvho pales in comparison to no one, online, cable, broadcast or print.
Good luck to you DD, I fully expect you to continue writing somewhere.
You’re too damn good not to.
