Thanks, David. I well remember the haughty jingos among us yakking about how we were "going to Afghanistan to re-arrange the rubble" and pasting cartoons on the wall showing F-18s attacking tribesmen with captions like "I'd fly 10,000 miles to smoke a Camel".
Well, when Mall of the Americas blows up, or the Golden Gate Bridge ends up in the bay, or any number of hundreds of other disasters befall this country, the term "blowback" will be on the lips of every citizen and our concept of "justice" will need some real tweaking.
And I think we should immediately gather up all the fundie preachers in this country, put them under the command of idiots like uber-zionist John Hagee, and let them make their best effort at "overcoming the threat of ISIS".
Sigh - just more pejorative political poop from the region's least prescient pundit. A professional would dig a little deeper into the likely results of a radical takeover of American government and not simply proclaim that a numeric majority of homophobic, misogynistic, xenophobic, blatantly racist, talk-radio educated fascist foot soldiers would be a good thing.
Ferguson, Missouri is NOTHING but a microcosm of what will erupt among us if the lurking Kraken of fascist, capitalist, iron rule is brought to bear in our government "of the people".
An extremist republican takeover of all elements of American government (also known as a Koch Brothers wet dream) WILL lead to revolution and the destruction of America. But these trillionaires care nothing about America - they just want castles of gold.
It is a miracle that the dysfunction brought to view by the Congress we have had the misfortune to watch over the last few years has not had more dire effects.
All the people on planet Earth whose loved ones have been killed, maimed and abused by the machinations of our empire and its corporate-driven global resource thievery will convulse in joy at the sight. The emergence of ISIL is not a simple "terrorist threat" it is, as was al Qaida, a RESPONSE but you will never hear admission of that fact by anyone in our military-industrial regime.
Looks like the artesian well of feverish zionist gibberish is still flowing ...
Wow, you'd think those people already had enough problems without having to deal with your cultural terrorism, Ken.
Gotta love Google.
Claims to be "property manager" for the Chattanooga office of REWA Theological Seminary, 117 Lee Parkway Drive, Suite 103, Chattanooga 37421 - another tendril of xtian cultism that seeks to attack the people of Andra Pradesh state in India whose Hindu population has the audacity to embrace a cultism that does not recognize the myth of Jeebus and the attendant cult of "slavery, rape, killing of innocent men, women, and children, incest, and genocide of countless millions" which they refer to as "god's love" (thanks, AYB).
Wow - the arrogance of ignorance is really on display here tonight.
Aw c'mon Bobby. All that science talk is nuthin' but more lies straight from the pits of hell - don't you listen to your tea party overlords like Paul Broun down in Georgia?
Now "scientists" say methane is being released from the melting permafrost and from the Arctic sea floor and they claim it will vastly accelerate warming. What hokum! And they even have videos they say shows it actually happening.
Well, gotta go. It's getting hot in here, need to crank up the air conditioner.
Hmph ... more pejorative, juvenile drivel from our backwoods editor wannabe.
Nope, NOT buying a subscription again today.
Rachel, since prayer is time wasted, I will hope for the peace of Gaza. We gift Israel billions of dollars worth of weapons and aid every year when those funds could be better used here - all due to Zionist and AIPAC scumbags pulling on the puppet strings of our idiot congresspeople they control (coughfleischmann).
Your lack of compassion and concern for the dead and maimed and lack of interest in the "prosperity" of Palestine speak volumes about the morality embraced by your bible and your god. You can have them both but keep them and yourself away from me. You all make me sick.
