"What's with the overemphasis of everything
and the crying? What's that all about? I'm afraid he's going to have a nervous
breakdown on the air...This guy's on the edge everyday. Personally I think the guy is going
to have a crack up on the air -- which is going to be very good for ratings."
-- Michael Savage, talking about Glenn Beck's hysterical rantings,
If the Dems weren't such helpless children (should I bother to
finish this sentence?) they could probably get
a great civil war going on the hard right - but, that wouldn't
be nice and it wouldn't be fair - so they don't do it.
Excerpt: The radical right wingers that were so prevalent
during the Clinton administration went dormant during the Bush years.
Now irresponsible sociopaths like Michelle Malkin,
Glenn Beck and Rep. Michele Bachmann are recklessly stoking
the fires of paranoid rightwing victimization,
I fear we will face countless tragedies like what just went on in PittsburgH.
When right wing radicals get upset, they either
shoot lots of people and or pull a Timothy McVeigh.
This is what Glenn Beck’s citizen army looks like.
People like Michelle Malkin fantasize about citizens rising up against
the (Democratic) state. They stoke their followers’
paranoia with bullshit that, mostly, they know is bullshit, for ratings
and a shot at political traction.
How many people have to die before the right-wing
media acknowledges their complicity in these kinds of attacks
and voluntarily dials back their inflammatory
rhetoric and incitements to violence? Sadly, I think it's going to
long time for that to happen -- and a lot more
innocent people are going to die in the interim. I guess this is what
"America First" means for the radical right under
an Obama presidency.
There will never be justice
in the United States until this drunken asshole is jailed for mass murder,
corruption, flagrant violations of the law, and his refusal to recognize
human rights. He is also responsible for the worst attack on the United States
since Pearl Harbor. He is directly reponsible for the misery and lost hopes of millions of human
beings because of his reckless handling of the American economy.
"The hate speech on the right is loud and ubiquitous,
and getting even more so. There are people with much influence and wide audiences, spurring
others to do things like this. Not everyone is going to, but all it takes is one individual disturbed
enough to take "justice" into his own hands. This may be the first major act of violence precipitated by
this toxic ideology during the Obama administration, but it won't be the last. We're less than a hundred days
into a near-1500 day term. It's only beginning."

Excerpt: Torture has been illegal for a number of years,
is why Bush belongs in prison) and Bush
insisted just as strongly
as Obama that the U.S. does not torture. (But
Bush was lying) There was a legitimate
debate about waterboarding,
(I don't recall that - I remember right-wingers
screaming 'traitor' at anyone who questioned Der Fuhrer) which does no physical injury, and which I do
not believe constitutes torture.
This is complete horseshit.
If Willie Horton ambushed this handjob and his
daughter in a dark parking lot and put a loaded gun in her mouth and
demanded that Hindraker blow him, he probably
would - yet Willie's actions did no physical injury, so there's no threat,
If there's no threat, John, why are you so eagerly
blowing Willie Horton?
But according to press reports, only two or three
top-ranking terrorists were waterboarded, none after 2003.
(Those Cheney-planted press reports can't
be verified) And waterboarding has
been banned by the U.S. military
since 2006. (Which
is why Bush belongs in prison) So
what was Obama's purpose in implying that until he came along,
Bush was engaged in torturing prisoners?
His speech was carried live by Al Jazeera and Al Arabiya, broadcast into
where "torture" doesn't mean getting your
Getting your face wet?
So if I defecate and urinate in a tub for a month, then force Hinmderaker's
head into that mess until he's forced to swallow,
he's going to laugh that off as a harmless prank because nothing happened
to him besides getting his face wet?
See how they lie?
They HAVE to lie because the truth does not serve their purpose.

Nils Bruzelius to national news editor Kevin Merida, and perhaps beyond.

the news team to Post editor Fred Hiatt and his editorial page’s
"multi-layer editing process," which allowed

few months, even after being corrected, publicly,

Sgt. X is also suffering through the Army's confusing
disability payment system, handled by something called a medical
evaluation board. The process of negotiating
the system has been made harder by his war-damaged memory. Sgt. X's wife
has to go with him to doctor's appointments so
he'll remember what the doctor tells him...
When Sgt. X went to see McNinch with a tape recorder,
he was concerned that something was amiss with his diagnosis.
He wanted to find out why the psychologist had
told the medical evaluation board that handles disability payments that
did not, in fact, have PTSD, but
instead an "anxiety disorder," which could substantially lower the amount
of benefits he would
receive if the Army discharged him for a disability.
recorder in Sgt. X's pocket captured McNinch in a moment of candor...
"OK," McNinch told Sgt. X. "I will tell you something
confidentially that I would have to deny if it were ever public.
Not only myself, but all the clinicians up here
are being pressured to not diagnose PTSD and diagnose anxiety disorder
McNinch told him that Army medical boards were
"kicking back" his diagnoses of PTSD, saying soldiers had not seen
enough trauma to have "serious PTSD issues."
"Unfortunately," McNinch told Sgt. X, "yours has
not been the only case ... I and other doctors are under a lot of pressure
to not diagnose PTSD. It's not fair. I think
it's a horrible way to treat soldiers, but unfortunately, you know, now
is jumping on board, saying, 'Well, these people
don't have PTSD,' and stuff like that."
Republican whores always say, "We stand by
the troops" but then they vote to deny them medical treatment.
If only the Democrats would list these facts, these soldiers
could get the help they need.

"Here's a link to the Alan Colmes radio clip
where one of the leading lights of the extreme right, Neal

from "domestic life on the farm" that they just don't understand that "your first girlfriend is a mule" when you

Excerpt: Obama was welcomed like a returning war hero
by hundreds of ecstatic US troops during a surprise visit to Iraq.
The pop-in provided Obama with a stunning photo
op as soldiers mobbed him, trying for handshakes and hugs,
many snapping shots with their own cameras.
The televised, four-star lovefest likely will
prove critical to the credibility of a liberal commander-in-chief as he
to sell the American public on the grim prospects
now facing the country in Afghanistan. The stealthy, four-hour visit
and Obama's remarks were all that much more notable
because of his strenuous opposition to the Iraq war from
before it began, and his commitment to end it
now that he is president.
"We love you," shouted one soldier, to which Obama
quickly replied, 'I love you back!'"

"Not so long ago, when a politician was caught

This was particularly true of politicians. It was exactly one year ago that Governor Spitzer was revealed to be the

office 'in disgrace'. Now all is forgiven! "

Hi, Bartcop! I've been reading your site for a
while and I like it a lot.
But sometimes jump in with a comment without
thinking it through.
Phillippe Sands' grammar was perfectly correct
when he said, "If I were they ...".
He was using the subjunctive form of "to be"
because he is absolutely not "they".
That's also why he uses "I were" instead of "I
was". Remember, from English classes?
Anyway, continued good luck with your site. I'd
contribute if I could, but am currently jobless.

Bart: you've got nerve correcting someone's English.

correct in the Queen's tongue.

Philippe Sands' grammar is correct, and his statement
is not illogical.
Grammatically, he is employing the subjunctive
conditional, contrary to fact,
as when the Cowardly Lion sings "If I were
king of the forrrrest."
He's not, but if he were....
Sands' pronoun "they" is also correct because
it is a predicate nominative.
With regard to logic, it's analogous to saying
"If I were you...." How can I be you?
The word "if" allows I to be you.
I can't, nor am I claiming to be.
Likewise, Sands is not claiming to be more
than one person.
Grammarian and Logician
You are all wrong.
It's tough being right when everybody else is wrong.
This is about math, and one can't be several.
It's like saying, "IF I were a married couple"
"If I were a football team..."
Proper English would be, "If I were one
of Bush's murderous thugs..." That keeps things singular.
All that subjunctive conditional and
predicate nominative crap doesn't hunt.
