Jesus God you are tiresome, Hector
Wow Bob Wow
“Outside conflicts” HA!
Netflix boasts that people have cumulatively watched 1,000,000,000 hours of “Stranger Things”. How many hours have people put into human rights? Arresting climate change?
We’re a colony of bacteria of a few stripes of competing variability that has outgrown the substrate of our peach tree dish in such an energetic chaotic manner as to have cracked the glass. We’ll spread a few micrometers on the old wooden table before we croak in our billions and fade into a musty dusty smear. Amen.
So YOU empaneled the Supreme Court that will assure our transition to fascism no matter who is elected in the next 20 years! AND that will make Koch industries the final arbiters of when we can begin to transition away from fossil fuels. Good job!
Rall is a cartoonist here in the US, criticizing US hypocrisy and nonsense. That’s what a patriot does. Lay it out, reveal the truth as one sees it, hold one’s representatives to account. Has he ever focused elsewhere? I dunno, I’m not keeping track. But, to his credit, he has strip searched the ideologies of all sides here, focusing on those in power at any given time, to analyze how they are applied. Our country continues to see itself as some sort of prospective Heaven on earth and always on the side of the angels, even with our history of carpet bombing the cities of Europe, the use of torture, the conditioning and control of foreign cultures and politics to enable us to enrich private companies here with the resources of others right round the world at the point of the gun and through massive corruption and fraud. While we still have the degree of free speech that we do, applaud the work of those who use it for its highest purpose – truth-telling about ourselves, for ourselves. Just sayin’
Wow. Thank you. I am in your debt (again). Have been away from home all day, but will begin going through these references and begin to share those I am able to understand, that seem comprehensive and provide adequate context, on social media. I hate the ‘excitement’ that war spawns and appreciate your sensitivity to hypocrisy and inaccurate story-telling by agents of any government. That said, the blanket punishment of civilian populations must be brought under control. Leadership is needed within the UN on every subject threatening human well-being.
Mr. Rall,I subscribe to and look through on-line Guardian, NYT, and WP each morning, and at least browse through Atlantic and Harper’s magazine print editions and more newspapers and magazines available through Apple News addition. But I have consistently missed the information you share in the comments here, replying to others, about the reality of Nazi influence in Ukraine. I’m ashamed to say that, in my dotage, I am susceptible to the “party line“ provided by popular media of the sort I have mentioned. Can you here direct me and others to other media so that we might more often encounter the information we are missing? I am horrified my the new glorification of war, even in cases of what can seem legitimate defense, and would like to be better informed. Thanks for your work and thanks for listening.
