  1. Conservative Socialist

    I'm a Conservative Socialist, a brand of socialism once popular in the 19th Century and rejected by Marx (whose own ideas have been... lacking). It fell out of favor during the 20th Century, replaced by Marxist-Leninism and Democratic Socialism, the term falling out of use and later becoming seemingly contradictory during the Cold War. In it's simplest terms, Conservative Socialism advocates a social ownership (sometimes by the workers, sometimes by the state) of the means of production, a strong ...

    "All Are Trapped By An Institutional Logic That Is Deeply Pathological and That Must Be Cured and Quickly If We Are Not To Put An End To The Human Race"

    "Exxon knew of climate change in 1981, email says – but it funded deniers for 27 more years," Guardian, July 8, 2015

    As noted in November 2015 by the Arms Control Association. With the buildup of NATO forces near Russia's border, both sides believe "a war is no longer unthinkable". What one ...

At least that was the way it was when I was there.

    Actually at one time the whole of the Northeastern portion of Thailand was part of Laos or Lang Xaing.
  4. Melania Trump on convention speech: 'I wrote it with as little help as possible'

    Interesting claim.

    She originally says she wrote it with as little help as possible, whihc appears to mean a whole lot of help.

    ""I read it once over, and that's all because I wrote it with as little help as possible,'' she told TODAY's Matt Lauer in an exclusive interview on Monday. "

    But her speechwriter admits ...
  5. Occupation, Inc: U.S.-Israeli Relations

    The Choice: Global Domination or Global Leadership, Zbigniew Brzezinski, 2009

    It (Israel) has been America's favorite client state since approximately the mid-1960s and has been the recipient of unprecedented American financial assistance ($80 billion since 1974).

    They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but some pictures are also worth a few gallons of throw-up. ...
  7. Trump's friends!

    Trump has friends.

    Indeed, he speaks of them often, and oddly they seem amazingly ill informed, yet conveniently supportive of his "proposals".

    An entire article dedicated to these "friends". Enjoy.

  8. Trump Sues!

    Presidential campaign? Meh, who has time for that when one can sue!

    Indeed, taking time out form bragging about his net worth and tweeting, Trump is apparently suing one former contractor for violating a non disclosure for stating, apparently, that two of Trump's staffers are doing the horizontal mambo.

    Really. This is what the guy aspiring to be the leader of the free world is doing with his time.

    Not to mention apparently his campaign folks are busy ...
