Tomgram: William Astore, "Hi, I'm Uncle Sam and I'm a War-oholic"
Posted by William Astore at 4:26pm, June 28, 2015.
War on drugs. War on poverty. War in Afghanistan. War in Iraq. War on terror. The biggest mistake in American policy, foreign and domestic, is looking at everything as war. When a war mentality takes over, it chooses the weapons and tactics for you. It limits the terms of debate before you even begin. It answers questions before they’re even asked.
When you define something as war, it d
By the Rockets Red GlareIn the year of our Lord Seventeen Seventy SixBy the Rockets Red Glare by Skargill
Things were going on in the Imperial sticks
Out in the Colonies Thirteen
They declared People Supreme
And birthed a new nation into the mix
It seems they all wished to be free
And showed great disrespect to tea
To protest King’s Largess
They formed a Congress
And bombarded His Majesty with a plea
Having fail to impress upon jurisprudence
Grabbed muskets an declared independence
Fought Redcoat an Hessian
Who made quite the Messian
And forced the King to commit costly vengeance
From Georgia to the tips of Maine
And funding from France and Spain
They built an army
And behaved calmly
And marched in sun, frost and rain
It is more than fair to mention
They did better than expectation
Though for a time
Not in battle line
Such was the cause of their desperation
Lacking in the tools of convention
They gave plots more than a mention
Going where Eagles Dare
By sailing the Delaware
They inflicted a state of exasperation
Which lead to the withdraw
SATIRE: Free College For Students Who Visit CubaSATIRE: Free College For Students Who Visit Cuba by BlameThe1st
Free College For Students Who Visit Cuba, Venezuela
Obama proposes free college tuition for students who study abroad in Cuba or Venezuela.
In a bold move to combine his efforts to provide free college and improve U.S.-Cuban relations, President Barack Obama has proposed free college for students who study abroad in Cuba or Venezuela.
Under his proposed cultural exchange program, eligible students would receive one year of free college tuition in exchange for spending the three months of their summer college break visiting either Cuba or Venezuela.
"Education should be much more than simply reading books," Obama said. "A well-rounded education should also provide opportunity to experience and learn from other cultures."
However, potential college students should not expect their travels to be a glamorous beachside vacation at a luxurious five-star resort. Instead, their visit to either country will entail volunteer work in humanitarian efforts whil
Corporate Lobbying: The Death of DemocracyCorporate Lobbying: The Death of American DemocracyCorporate Lobbying: The Death of Democracy by ComradeSch
In America, it is widely known that corporations are given rights, as if they were people- And by that, it is meant they can pay politicians to pass laws that permit them to become stronger, reduce regulations on industries so they can pay their workers less and earn more, not illegalize harmful goods, and make news channels that only express one point of view. In America, this is a growing problem- And not only socialists recognize that.
Liberals have formed Wolf-PAC, an organization intent on getting money out of politics. As a matter of fact, Wolf-PAC is one of the few groups that actually tries to do something about the problem. As well, Anonymous hackers and DDOSers have the ability to shut down government servers, and whether or not they do it is up to the individuals of Anonymous- And I am certain Anons are dedicating themselves to the problem. Socialists are adamantly against lobbying as well- However, after the bad name the U

Red Humour- America, Invade the Vatican!Swiss Guard: 135 Members, No Tanks, Artillery or AircraftRed Humour- America, Invade the Vatican! by ComradeSch
Al-Quaeda: About 25,000 members, Has IED's, rockets, and potentially WMD's.
Vatican: One of the richest organizations in the World (has been collecting gold for 1,600 years). Wealth nearly incalculable
Al-Quaeda: Relies on stealing enemy weapons and Molotov cocktails to sustain combat. Main resource is crude oil.
Vatican: 100 acres of land.
Al-Quaeda: Has no specific territory, operating globally.
So, my friends, why note invade the Vatican, steal all the gold, and sell it off? After all, with that kind of money, you could BUY the entire Middle East and stop wasting lives!
Dave Mustaine on Killing For ReligionBear in mind thay the writer of this song, "Holy Wars- The Punishment Due" is a progressive Jewish-American.Dave Mustaine on Killing For Religion by ComradeSch
"Brother will kill brother
Spilling blood across the land
Killing for religion
Something I don't understand
Fools like me, who cross the sea
And come to foreign lands
Ask the sheep, for their beliefs
Do you kill on God's command?
A country that's divided
Surely will not stand
My past erased, no more disgrace
No foolish naive stand
The end is near, it's crystal clear
Part of the master plan
Don't look now to Israel
It might be in your homelands
-Dave Mustaine of Megadeth, in their song "Holy Wars- The Punishment Due"

#10: Weinergate "Scandal"
You know what I consider the worst part about Weinergate?
It's not that Anthony Weiner tweeted his junk to a female constituent. Politicians have always been involved with sex scandals here in America since Jefferson. And for the most part, I could care less. Ron Paul could go Hugh Hefner on us and date a Playboy bunny every day of the week, and I'd still support his noninterventionist foreign policy and opposition to the Patriot Act.
And it's not that libtarded moonbats like Rachel Maddow and Cenk Ugyur were quick to defend the man, only to wipe egg off their faces once he confessed.
No. the worst part was undoubtedly the Republicans. As was expected, the "Moral Majority" was quick t
Petition to Save American Democracy!To my American Comrades,Petition to Save American Democracy! by BullMoose1912
I know that there's a lot wrong with our country right now, let alone the whole world. And I know that signing a petition is no substitute for direct action and getting out in the streets and becoming one with the critical mass needed to change this country for the better.
But for now, when you're not out showing solidarity with the 99% in the streets, at least you can take 2 minutes to sign this petition to overturn the undemocratic decision laid out in Citizens United while you go on with your daily internet lives.
This petition is for the Saving American Democracy Amendment.
This amendment states that:
Corporations are not persons with constitutional rights equal to real people.
Corporations are subject to regulation by the people.
Corporations may not make campaign contributions.
Congress and states have the power to regulate campaign finances.
And if you have friends and family and comrades elsewhere in real life or online, get them to sign this pet
Reality Has A Liberal Bias?In his New York Times bestselling book Bias: A CBS Insider Exposes How the Media Distort the News, Emmy Award-winning journalist Bernard Goldberg wrote about the pervasive liberal bias he experienced firsthand while working at CBS News for 30 years. He claimed that the bias was not part of some conspiracy being secretly implemented by the media, but that it was an unintentional consequence of having so many politically like-minded journalists working together in the same environment with very little dissenting opinion among them.Reality Has A Liberal Bias? by BlameThe1st
"If you hooked network news reporters and producers to polygraph machines and asked them, 'Do you think you are guilty of liberal bias?' most would almost certainly answer, 'no.' And they would pass the polygraph test because they're not lying," he wrote. "They honestly believe what they're saying. And that's the biggest problem of all."1
Goldberg did not write anything in his book that most Americans did not already assume to be true

Let's Talk About Killin Babies::Note:: I wrote this a while back in response to Joyce Arthur's pro-abortion essay. It's a long one, so hold on to your butts!Let's Talk About Killin Babies by BluePhoenixx
"A human zygote, blast cyst, embryo, or fetus is a human being with a right to life, and abortion is therefore murder and should be illegal." Joyce Arthur said this but in the next breath she claimed that this logic is "deeply flawed." My purpose in writing this is to say that's absolutely false. "Personhood: Is a Fetus a Human Being?" by Joyce Arthur came to my attention while in a friendly debate with a liberal friend of mine. I found it to be a dishonest and a misleading piece of work. I have decided to go through Arthur's work and correct the "facts" she has stated to justify her stance on abortion.
As I commonly say in my debates with liberals, I want to call a spade a spade and I will go into a little more detail on this subject later on. The subject is abortion. The stances are either for or against it. I will not call someone who is for abortion "pro-c
Top 10 Economic Myths BUSTED"Tax the rich! They don't pay their fair share!"Top 10 Economic Myths BUSTED by BlameThe1st
"The rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer!"
"Bush killed the economy with massive deregulation! We need more regulation!"
"Beware! The Koch Brothers are transforming this country into neo-feudalism! We're all going to become wage slaves to our corporate feudal lords!"
Everywhere I go on the internet, I keep running into the same trite economic talking points. Not that these talking points are hard to debunk (on the contrary, they're easily debunked), but that they keep popping up time and again, and I get sick and tired of debunking them each and every time. So, to do myself and everyone else a service, I have compiled a list of the top ten economic myths, followed by the truth:
Myth #1: The rich don't pay their fair share in taxes
According to popular misconception, the rich (especially the richest one percent) pay little to nothing in taxes while the middle class and poor carry the brunt of the tax b
Liberty For Security"Those who sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither" - Benjamin FranklinLiberty For Security by BlameThe1st
I know who my audience is. You're mostly conservatives and libertarians (and that's the way I like it). So I'm going to convey this story in a way you all can understand.
But first, a brief history lesson.
In early 2009, a government document entitled "The Modern Militia Movement," commonly known as the MIAC Report, was leaked to the public. The document detailed the rising trend in right-wing militias and was created to help local authorities identify militia members and domestic terrorists, suggesting that Ron Paul bumper stickers or Gadsden flags could be indicators of militia activity. Couple it with the Patriot Act, which allows for warrantless wiretaps and library record searches, and this report could have allowed the Obama Administration to hunt down political dissenters as domestic terrorists. Simply checking out a copy of Ron Paul's "End The Fed" could run a library patron the risk of bein
Orwellian concepts in societyGeorge Orwell is perhaps one of the greatest authors of the twentieth century, and one of his greatest novels was 1984. The book was often considered a dystopian novel criticizing the Soviet Union, but he was criticizing the western world just as much as Stalin's nightmare. This failure to catch this criticism has perhaps allowed for western society to look more like Orwell's horrifying depiction of the future. It is not just the result of a corrupt governmental system but also of an economic system in which society was built around, capitalism, which George Orwell was an opponent of despite popular belief.Orwellian concepts in society by The-Laughing-Rabbit
Perhaps one of the major examples of Orwellian concepts is double think, which has imbedded itself into our society. WAR IS PEACE, IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH, SLAVERY IS FREEDOM, are Orwell's famous examples of double think. We have been taught double think from the beginning, and almost never realize the contradiction.
War is peace is one we are constantly feed during war time, we are a
Bahrain - Donut gesturePoor, poor residents of Two Seas - Bahrain - who were shot, beaten and tortured, gassed with tear gas. When the Ministers of Interior and Justice of Libya decided to attempt a coup d'etat, successfully arranged in Cyrenaica and failed in Tripolitania, the enlightened Europe and NATO started to bomb Libya, whereas no one wants to speak about the fact, that Bahrainites would like to democracy and equality too, same as about the fact that some of them just want to live.Bahrain - Donut gesture by mirrr1
They say that when on March 7, in the midst of democratic protest, on a tiny island in the Persian Gulf protesters gathered near the U.S. Embassy in Manama, with signs like "Stop supporting dictators," and "Give me liberty or give me death!", from the Representative Office a box of donuts was presented for the protesters. Someone from the Islamic clerics in the crowd said: "These sweets are a nice gesture, but we hope that it will be transferred into practice." It should be noted that in the Arab and wider - the Muslim cul
