The Clinton Provides A Pass

By on Jan 27, 2009 in Politics | 0 comments

Despite the supposedly promising move of making George Mitchell the Middle East Envoy – it appears that any work he attempts will be under the glowering shadow of none other than second of the two infamous Clintons, good old Hillary. Consider if you will, the article at Reuters entitled “Clinton says Israel has the right to defend itself. ” This is not a novel or unique statement, and it is a factually redundant one given that any ‘nation’ (and I use the word here against my better judgment) legally has that right. In fact, the statement is old code, and what it means is this “That the USA will continue to support Israel no matter what Israel chooses to do and no matter what it becomes in the process. Israel has the USA-Backed MIGHT to do to the Palestinians whatever they goddamn please.” – so let’s not kid ourselves, that’s...

Open Letter To Barak Obama

By on Nov 11, 2008 in Politics | 3 comments

Mr. Obama, President Elect – you have won, and the people cheer – and in huge neon letters, or so the media would have us understand – the world itself now sees the words ‘Hope’, ‘Change’, ‘Obama’ all writ large pnto some bright fantastical chimera.  My skepticism is founded mainly on your foreign policies which, unfortunately, sound to me almost identical in attitude to the ones that have already cost America so much of its standing in the global community. The whole notion that unilateral actions are acceptable when America (and only America) chooses to act. The idea that America should play world leader, that somehow, America has been forced by virtue of some supposed superiority to police the rest of the world. That the injustices committed to some people are acceptable as long as they are perpetrated by ‘friends’ of...

Half-Full.

By on Jun 21, 2007 in Politics | 5 comments

Having pointed out the true story behind the web of lies portrayed in Spielberg’s Saving Private Ryan to somebody – I was taken aback by the response. The person I pointed things out to asked my why I would do such a thing to start with. Why, he asked, would I do such a thing? And, he continued, “its like you want to crush everything i like. And find something wrong in everything…seems like you have a bit of a pessimistic outlook on the world. The glass is half empty. And you seem to miss the good.” My god… It’s got nothing to do with ‘crushing’ what you like. I was looking through your profile to get a better idea of who I’m talking to. When I saw that Saving Private Ryan was one of your favorite movies – I felt I needed to make you realize the truth about it. If hoping to open your eyes to something you may not know is...

Mike Gravel : Why I Care.

By on Jun 14, 2007 in Politics | 4 comments

Somebody asked me why I want Mike Gravel to win – why I care either way, since I’m not even an American, and this is, after all, an American presidential candidate. I’ve got more than a few reasons – and they all sort of come together. I spent some time in the US as a child – and as a result spent a large part of my childhood with a bit of an American identity. It’s also remained a large part of my cultural background. It’s the music I hear, and the books, I read – the comics I grew up on, and various other things. Not quite Apple Pie and the Superbowl, but still 😉 The other thing is that, like it or not – America influences the whole world, and well, to be honest, considering how America has been lately, I have to say I don’t like the effect it’s having. I remember thinking years ago that because America chooses to...

Joe Lieberman Is Nuts.

By on Jun 11, 2007 in Politics | 0 comments

Joe Lieberman was just on Face The Nation. He’s a complete nut. No matter what question he was asked – Lieberman managed to inject the phrase ‘Iranians are killing Americans’ into each and every sentence he uttered. He said it once, then again, then again, then again and again and again. It started with him saying that he’s just been to ‘the region’ – the only country he mentioned by name was ‘Israel’ – not quite a country as much as a military camp full of genocidal Zionists, but that’s another story for another post. In any case, his point was twofold – that he is an ally of ‘Israel’ and that he’s got the god-given truth from the only ‘trustworthy’ American ally in the Middle East. The Zionists told him so, so it’s just gotta be true. And on he went, about how Iran is...
