Great one today Clay.
Clay's work today is a perfect metaphor for the minds eye of conservatives. Can anyone argue that this is not how they see the country soon (right) after Obama was sworn in? The whirlwind of radical ideology purposely blowing down all the gains made over the years. Burying 'traditional (christian) values' in the rubble to promote his 'socialist agenda'.
All the while Republicans sing in harmony to the tune- 'The Bulldozers of Austerity' to push the rubble into one big pile; giving the remainder to their corporate friends to sell off. And with the same snarling smile a wolf has just before it eats you says, "See, we cleaned it up for you. Now don't we (but not you) deserve more tax cuts for being so kind?"
Pass the ketchup please.
I've said it before. All that came before January 2009 was sunshine & flowers.
It certainly seems the censors at the TFP did not like the content or direction of the commentary.
Perhaps pre-empting another evening of inflammatory one upsmanship.
Maybe you're right JT6 as there doesn't seem to be a specific pattern.
??? Oh well.

Hmm, speaking of sheep DeputyDawg -maybe someone 'shank'ed him. Oh Oh Oh!
Shorn of hedonistic flocking and abiding by no one, a woolen blanket of....Oh for gods sake LOL. I guess it's a 'Greek' thing.

Sorry about the double post.
”Sherman. Let’s go to the Wayback machine again.”
”Aww, not again Mr. Peabody?”
Your post yesterday regarding racism as being not ” JUST about RACE” by referencing ‘The Territorial Imperative’ as a basis for your three word hypothesis was more insightful (and fundamentally correct) than the adversarial and undeserved bashing meted out. Maybe the way you used a largely unknown anthropological study without clarifying or codifying its conclusions is what threw them over the edge. Ignorance (not stupidity) often induces an angry response.
I understood what you were trying to say.
”Aww, not again Mr. Peabody!”
Whose worse Nixon or Obama? Nixon’s enemies list which began with about 20 people ballooned to nearly 600 and was used with IRS Audits of those they didn't like. (hmm – where have I heard that before??) But they couldn’t really organize retaliations against most on the list. HA, as I remember it, it wasn’t so much a punishment but as cool status. A certain 'Gonzo Journalist' was annoyed that he was excluded, “I would almost have preferred a vindictive tax audit to that kind of crippling exclusion.” Gotta love that!
Are Obama’s enemies saying something like that? Uh no, because most of them are dead. Call it the ‘Secret Kill List’, the ‘Hit List’ or the truly Orwellian ‘Disposition Matrix’ (see link below); what we have today the US government describes as a ‘next generation capture/kill list.’ These criteria go way beyond the consequences of just being on a list; and go way beyond tax audits, with punishments ranging from capturing, rendering to outright assassination.
I call this round for Obama. By far!
Well, so far it’s Obama 2, Nixon 1.
The question is. Will Obama face a vicious press as Nixon did, or will it all blow away like a dissipating thunderstorm? Today's press are pussy’s after all.
I usually point out that much of this rabid the anti-Obama zealotry comes from the nutty/birther/Tea Party/Fox News fringe, but Obama’s decisions on these (they are both ethical and (im)moral) has handed his adversaries an ammo supply that even Ted Nugent would envy. Mmm…then again, maybe not.
Nixon ,and Kissinger, bombed nations on the down low. ‘Operation Menu’ in Cambodia and Laos is hard to beat. Three million tons of bombs, hundreds of thousands killed, and the entire thing was doctored as something happening only inside Vietnam. Pretty impressive; and I’m not even including his forays into South America.
However, the Obama team is rising fast to the challenge. The drone campaign, thousands of victims, (many of which were civilians) is just the beginning. Jeremy Scahill said in his book ‘Dirty Wars: The World is a Battlefield’, ”Pretty much anywhere humans can be tracked, targeted and killed in combat zones the Obama team has secret assassination squads at work.” With these policies now cemented as national policy and plans to institutionalize the never ending ‘Global War on Terror’, Obama has shown a more methodical approach to institutionalized bloodshed & secret warfare.
I call this round (but just by a hair) for Obama.
