I'd Kill For a Peace Prize

By Timo Cerantola

What would it take to get most Americans to give away their freedoms? A full-scale military attack from the combined forces of China and Russia (?) An interplanetary invasion by aliens with advanced weaponry (?) No. It takes only one nut-job (with a bomb in his underwear) to send the people of the most powerful nation on the planet into a paranoid fit of fear.

Bipartisanship, the burden of proof, and dissenters

The New London Day
by Marc Guttman

03/14/10

People are again complaining about partisanship in Washington D.C., believing it to be self-serving and to cause undesirable legislative gridlock. Recently, President Barack Obama was praised for “courageously” speaking ‘across the aisle’ to a meeting of Republicans. Well, to many of us, this is all mostly theater and it is rather the overwhelming bipartisanship that is our problem. It’s the policies these players agree on and implement that are harming individuals and communities here and abroad...

The ObamaCare quagmire

Reason
by Shikha Dalmia

03/12/10

Even if Democrats extract the votes to put ObamaCare over the top, it will at best be a Pyrrhic victory for them. Regardless of the outcome, this monstrosity might cost the Democrats the Congress this November, ruin the party for a long time, and prematurely render Barack Obama a lame duck president for the rest of his term. So why didn’t the Democrats pull back when they still had the chance? The reason is that both the Democratic Party and President Obama have mutually reinforcing blind spots that have rendered them incapable of seeing what’s crystal clear to every other sentient being in the country: This was the wrong bill at the wrong time...

We’re fighting them over there so we don’t have to fight them over here. That, you’ll recall, was the message pounded home in the early days of the Long War — essentially the same tired old cold war line trotted out by the neocons and revamped for the age of terrorism. If we don’t stop them in Central America, the (Sandinistas, Cubans, Salvadoran rebels) will be in Texas soon enough. As it turned out, the Sandinistas never made it to Baja California, but an alarming development — or perhaps I should say alarmist — seemingly indicates al-Qaeda may have made inroads in the US...

Investigators looking into corruption involving reconstruction in Iraq say they have opened more than 50 new cases in six months by scrutinizing large cash transactions — involving banks, land deals, loan payments, casinos and even plastic surgery — made by some of the Americans involved in the nearly $150 billion program. Some of the cases involve people who are suspected of having mailed tens of thousands of dollars to themselves from Iraq, or of having stuffed the money into duffel bags and suitcases when leaving the country, the federal investigators said...
