We support the troops when we bear responsibility for their atrocities

TROOPS KILL KIDS- You’d think the statement was so obvious it didn’t need saying, but it does, everyone is in such denial about it. Other people’s kids die everyday by airstrike or at the hands of our marauding soldiers, yet … Continue reading

As was long suspected, then reported, and the reporters mocked..

Like when Dr Laura’s son was using MySpace to boast of war crimes in which he participated or fantasized about committing, denounced by Ms. Schlesinger and others on the RightWing Lunatic Fringe as being “hacked” onto his account… along with … Continue reading

Operation Home Front = fake patriotism

Enough already. If you “support” the troops or the war, then why don’t you actually “support” them? Dig down deep and pay your God-damn taxes to fund it. Can’t afford the war under the current Tax Scheme? Too GOD-DAMNED BAD. … Continue reading
