Jon Soltz: What Color Is The Sky In Palin's World?
more lies and divisiveness from the pretender
to the 2012 republican nominee for the presidency.

Please read. in concrete terms the author
explains how much more respectful President
Obama has been than gwbush ever was toward the

Sarah Palin is a pathological liar who thrives
apparently on being divisive, and she'll make up
crap so she can diss anyone on the left even when
she's completely totally off the mark.

i can't believe there are people who believe her,
believe in her, and see her as any kind of "good."

Frank: The Persecution of Sarah Palin - WSJ.com
Frank: The Persecution of Sarah Palin - WSJ.com
...amid all this score-settling, Ms. Palin wanders into
some predictable traps. When explaining her political philosophy,
for example, she tells readers that "conservatism is a respect
for history and tradition"; on the very next page she instructs
readers to accept the creative-destructive whirl of the market,
which affects society the way "wildfires in Alaska burn away
deadfall to make way for new growth."

So much for tradition. The respect she shows history, though,
is the kind of respect you show the flag when you soak it in
kerosene and touch a match to it. "[W]e tried growing government
to save the economy back in the 1930s, and it didn't work then
either," Ms. Palin writes. It is a modest assertion, though,
compared to the astonishing finding Ms. Palin reveals in the
next sentence: "Massive government spending programs and protectionist
economic policies actually helped turn a recession into the Great
Depression." If this is, as it seems, a reference to the New Deal,
then history, per Ms. Palin, sometimes goes backwards, with the
WPA and its ilk actually bringing about events that took place
before they were launched.

Security Theater | Mother Jones
Security Theater | Mother Jones
....Security is both a feeling and a
reality. The propensity for security
theater comes from the interplay between
the public and its leaders. When people are
scared, they need something done that will
make them feel safe, even if it doesn't
truly make them safer. Politicians naturally
want to do something in response to crisis,
even if that something doesn't make any sense.

i'm over the fear, just had it with it.
