Neoliberalism – the ideology at the root of all our problems

So pervasive has neoliberalism become that we seldom even recognise it as an ideology. We appear to accept the proposition that this utopian, millenarian faith describes a neutral force; a kind of biological law, like Darwin’s theory of evolution. But the philosophy arose as a conscious attempt to ...

Re: The Growing Heap of Political Rubble

I think H.L. Mencken was an optimist about we the people. I don't think so much about Trump, it is his true believers that scare the bejeezus out of me. Yes Virginia , there is a hell and it is other people. Yes yes, [ i]never mind/no matter[/i] cause it will drive you nuts if you let the combine ge...

Re: Sunday Stream (S8-293) - A Plea :: Save America

I miss the good old days of 2.4 trillion-dollar wars and 500 thousand dead Arabs. Trump ain't got the balls to kick Sadam's ass all over the middle east. Trump looks pretty good to me compared to Bush, Cheney, Wolfowitz and the rest of those sorry sons of bitches. (comparisons are odious I know but ...

Down the Rabbit Hole

Cut and Paste MARTINSBURG, W.VA. — Caleb Cain pulled a Glock pistol from his waistband, took out the magazine and casually tossed both onto the kitchen counter. “I bought it the day after I got death threats,” he said. The threats, Mr. Cain explained, came from right-wing trolls in response to a vi...

Thank you Governor Ivy

"Every human life is sacred."
But when she is asked about what happens to the child after it is "unborn".
She is vague about that.

Oh yes, fuck you kid, we got ours.

Re: This is Disgusting.

I don't know what I feel. Anger not so much as disgust I guess. What angers me more than Trump is the mainline media. Everytime I see some guy like John Bolton, or Dick Cheney, or the other masterminds of the Iraq war on Sunday morning news shows, I am disgusted how can they have the nerve to presen...

Re: This is Disgusting.

I guess what I am saying is he is a master of the free press. The press made him in 2016 as much as the Russians. China is going to eat our lunch. All I care about is the next war and the one after that.

Re: Mob Hit in New York, The News Said

I miss e-dog, I think he was one of the most perspicacious persons posting about the science of politics, poly sci we used to call it in the days before A.I. I think e-dog was close to the truth when he said this shit started with the franky prussian war in 1870. Then it took about 30 years to reach...
