Syria: Iraq Redux

Rachel Maddow is hated by the right and all who peddle propaganda as truth. The following video illustrates why:

    1. Indeed, LeDaro. I wonder how many will be fooled this time around.

  2. "I'll move myself and my family aside
    If we happen to be left half alive
    I'll get all my papers and smile at the sky
    For I know that the hypnotized never lie


    There's nothing in the street
    Looks any different to me
    And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye
    And the parting on the left
    Is now the parting on the right
    And the beards have all grown longer overnight"
    ~The Who

    1. A very appropriate selection of lyrics, Dan. Thank you. As the French saying goes, Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.

  3. We are doomed! It's just a matter of time. (and by doomed, I mean FUCKED )

    1. Many would agree with your grim prognosis, astone.

    2. I hope I am wrong(but I doubt it)! All of our politicians should be tried for treason to the human race! Obama tried, but in the face of Republican lying and deceit he never stood a chance. Same over here. That people actually gave a scumbag like Harper a majority makes my head spin! And it won't stop spinning. I am full of despair ! And I see no solution !!!!

    3. While I am deeply cynical and pessimistic, astone, the thing that keeps me from despair most days is the belief that we have to fight the good fight to the end, even if we have little prospect of victory. Being true to ourselves, spreading the truth as we interpret it in all ways possible, and hoping against hope that the electorate will rouse itself from its lethargy and start engaging in the crucial issues keeps me going.

      Also, I refuse to give the powers that be the final victory by simply shrugging my shoulders and distracting myself with all the narcotizing baubles made available to us. Final victory is theirs only if we allow it.

      Are we deluding ourselves here? I don't know. But I do know it is the only way I can live my life with meaning and dignity.
