Why does Michael Steele hate those of us who served in the american armed forces?
Michael Steele: The VA is ‘Encouraging [Vets] to Commit Suicide’

Interesting game in play there - first they play the gambit that there was no way to know that running the IranqIstanian War would mean the need for VA services for returning vets dumped out of the DOD health care programme. Then they opt in to complain that the failure of the VA services are the horror of red socialism. Now they want to get up to the gag that it is time for the GOP to openly stab the troops in the back with direct disinformation campaigns.

Why do these draft dodgers from the GOP hate those of us who served in the american armed forces?

Which part of their personal guilt moments are driving their immorality?

but is that a limiting factor?
Krugman: "The Argument Against the Public Option is Sheer Nonsense"

But is that really a debilitating problem for an argument these days?

Aren't there like special olympics of unReasonedDiscourse that should be supported, you know, to keep the scary things that go bump in the dark, from well, Bumping!

Psuedo Cons Stabbing WarPresident In Back
Right-Wing Militias Are Resurging -- Will They Produce More Terrorists Like Timothy McVeigh? - After a decade out of the spotlight, the militant rightwing “Patriot” movement is on the rise.

The more important question is if this is proof positive that the PsuedoCons, and their NeoConClownCarCrew, Friends are openly stabbing their religious belief in the Majikal Powers Act, and the divinity of dubya in the back! Since that would sorta mean that they sorta accept that Obama is the actual president and commander in chief of the american armed forces, and all of their mercenary forces, auxilaries and satraps!

That is a crucial step forward.

You see the Militia Movement sank under the irrational belief that Dubya was forever. That and their own internal wingNuttery problems.

So the fact that they are reforming, means, that they may have opted to accept that the 22nd Ammendment was legally lawful. Which is a great step forward. And clearly better than the myth that Dubya is secretly running Things From Skulletor Moutain. Which is better than the scarier thot that he merely abandoned the american armed forces overseas and ran away in the first Palinista refusal to fulfill their obligation... Which in the case of the divinely appointed decider would be to decide for god until taken up to heaven....

So there may well be a silver lining in the rise of the radical militias.

Or NOT.

An interesting take on tarentino's new flick
Inglourious Basterds

I have not seen it, but think it would go well on a double bill with GI Joe...

Little Mental Swirlie Moment that one, eh no?

They Did What?
Pentagon Hired Contractor to Vet War Reporters

They disallowed a Stars and Stripes Reporter.

Why don't they just admit that there is no real war, that this is all about an excuse to fund contractors.

The Stars and Stripes has been the home town newspaper for the US Military for a REALLY LONG TIME, and this is just unthinkable. Or does the Pentagon, and friends, really think that in the post-literate age, 'news like related activities programmes' are merely about defending the products and Brand of the sponsors?

why off shoring is the rave
an interesting piece by Robert Cringely on why IBM is outsourcing aggressively

Hey, what if there were a national defense health solution that would take that part of the cost off the backs of american corporations? And put it foursquare back into the Department of Defense where it belongs all along!!!

on creaming one's genetic material
But as noted above, Tammy Duckworth has pointed out that the pamphlet in question was commissioned by the Bush administration, and discontinued in 2007. The Obama administration has had nothing to do with this.
[ cf Jonah Goldberg Compares VA Pamphlet to Nazi Eugenics ]
Why does PantLoad hate america and americans? and why is he attack Dubya?
