There may be some unintended truth in rejecting 1967 borders. The fact of the matter is that the peace process itself has been betrayed. The two-state solution may be moot through decades of foot-dragging, during which hundreds of thousands of violent religious Jewish extremists - backed by the Israeli military - moved in and squatted on Palestinian property. Because this is so, the chorus is growing louder for one secular, bi-national democratic state of
all Israel's citizens.
For the record I am no fan of Michele Bachmann, who , last election cycle , insinuated that left-leaning members of Congress might be, quote : "anti-American". I have to say that few things can be counted as being less American than that. Honestly. Such tactics are used to intimidate voters - that they themselves might be labeled with the worst accusation imaginable should they do the most revolutionary thing possible - that is, to think for themselves. To that, I can only say - la, la, la, look at me, thinking!
More soberly, thinking is what the founders of America did a great deal of, and though they themselves pointed out that they did not get everything right, right off the bat (they didn't abolish
slavery, e.g.), what we can say by their example is that thinking and questioning the status quo is as American as apple pie.

Meanwhile, do a search for something on the web and there is less likelihood that a full range of results will appear , because systems 'know' what you would be interested in from tracking your
internet movements. When does this tayloring cross the line into manipulation - letting you know some things, preventing you from knowing others? I can't say if th is poses a threat to
liberty (not to mention privacy) - but it doesn't smell too good.
Michele Bachmann invading my bubble? That just plain stinks.
