It's Just Parchment, Get Over It

Jesus Christ, America: Get Control of Your Womenfolk Already, Would Ya?
(2 comments) I don't know about you, but I've certainly found the rising autonomy and equality of women this last century to be troubling in the extreme. It's clearly been wrecking American society. Fortunately, somebody is finally doing something about it, and not a moment too soon, either. Indeed, there's been quite a spate of good news lately for misogynists everywhere. Read all about it here.

We Are Not Your Human Resources
(3 comments) The one percent in this country sees the rest of us--not as equals, or even as human beings--but as commodities put on this earth to serve them, no different from machines or infrastructure, computers or chemicals. To them, we're not human beings entitled to human rights and empathetic respect.

Civility? Whatever. Capitulation? No Thanks.
It's well past time to be blunt about our situation. Indeed, we cannot even hope to ameliorate it if we cannot even begin by labeling it. The truth is that there are economic predators out there seeking to take what we have so that they can live ever wealthier lives while ours are short, nasty and brutish because of their institutionalized and legalized theft.

Learning From Lame Ducks
These clowns continually leave themselves wide open for withering attack, just as they did by opposing unemployment extensions for 'lazy' laid-off workers, or by opposing the pittance cost to provide health care for 9/11 first-responders, all based on the claim that we can't afford the spending, even though we absolutely must give massive tax cuts to billionaires.

What WikiLeaks Really Reveals
(2 comments) The regressives know that the people in a democracy just might not put up with their crimes and their lies, and thus secrecy must be jealously guarded, even if that requires the murder of a truth-teller. That, ultimately is the most substantial revelation that the WikiLeaks documents have so far produced.

(3 comments) The wheels are coming off the wagon in America right now, and it does indeed smell all too much like a Germany-in-the-1930s kinda moment. American politics have been driven to a fever pitch, even though no one is talking about the real problems the country faces.

I always thought it was as foolish and deceitful to claim victory in 2008 as it had been in 2003. And this is probably precisely what we're witnessing now, as political violence is once again ramping up in Iraq. we may have to 'win' the war yet a fourth time before we actually get out of there.
