LINES OF THE DAY

". . . But the past does not exist independently from the present. Indeed, the past is only past because there is a present, just as I can point to something over there only because I am here. But nothing is inherently over there or here. In that sense, the past has no content. The past -- or more accurately, pastness -- is a position. Thus, in no way can we identify the past as past." p. 15

". . . But we may want to keep in mind that deeds and words are not as distinguishable as often we presume. History does not belong only to its narrators, professional or amateur. While some of us debate what history is or was, others take it into their own hands." p. 153

Tipping Point Reached?

Biden used 'bullshit' in public to describe the headgangstachimp's blather in Israel.

Conyers has said Rove is supoenaed, and if he doesn't answer to it, he will be arrested.

Wexler's pushing on the Siegleman trial and conviction and all the other bs that the DOJ's done in Their Name.

If it is really the DOJ shenanigans that takes Them down -- even after they're Out post the election -- isn't that what we can call Justice?

That speech in Israel, that was really something. It seems to have had just the opposite effect of what They planned and expected though, finalizing the anointing of Obama as the Dem candidate, as everyone rallies 'round in outrage that a so-called POTUS, who STOLE BOTH ELECTIONS and whose grandfather thought doing bidness with Hitler and the nazis the smart thing to do, and who DID MEET WITH HITLER, characterized a candidate as a Hitler.

Why has it taken this farkin' long?

Vaquero has taken to speculating that Obama may be a political genius.

Chamberlain appeased Hitler, to persuade him to attack the Soviet Union. I expect to see the Bush doctrine, of no diplomacy be buried when he is gone from office.

Israel will eventually sit down with Hamas. Abbas doesn't have a following. Israel needs a two state solution, because of Arab population growth.
