Re: Dick Cheney wags the dog.

I am not saying that we were bit players. We were in Afghanistan with both feet. What I AM saying is that our participation in Afghanistan in the 1980s does not immediately translate into the Al Qaeda of Dar Es Salaam/Nairobi/Port of Aden/9-11. The mujaheddin turned into fodder for Al Qaeda because...

I'll read a book as soon as clitorus answers my question: How can you make the ridiculous claim that people have "no interest in democracy" when they've never been exposed to it? He equates lack of action against the government with approval for their system of government. The two are not...

Re: Suggested Reading for AZGF...

I think people in some countries living in dictatorship have no interest in democracy primarily due to religion... and usually monotheism.

Re: Suggested Reading for AZGF...

Another factor in the modern sense is colonialism which could be argued has interupted the spread of democracy from time to time. An example would be Iran where the Brits and the U.S. removed the democratically elected leader Moussadeq from power in the 1950's right after he threatened to nationaliz...

Oh, I forgot. Public schools can't do that because we can't hold parents or kids responsible for their actions.

Re: Harry Reid's Corrupt Christmas Present

On second thought z fuck it.

This is a piece of shit bill that exemplifies all that's wrong with our political system. Unintended consequences, corporatism, political buy offs, etc.

Old Newt is just pissin' because he's not the one who gets to take credit for it.
