It is not illegal for a communist or a nazi to be a member of our American government..however would you prefer someone who believes Capital and Labour are equals or someone that believes Capital rules Labour..?? just a thought
True subversives in this country are the fascists and their progeny. Remember Hitler was well regarded among the banking/industrialist class in the 30's and 40's..Prescott Bush was forced by the War Powers act to finally disinvest in Nazi Germany in 1942 for example..Then after the war many high ranking Nazis were imported into the US to fill important posts in space and defense tech companies..including atomics..Americans that resisted this nazification of our military were purged..see Albert Einstein, Robert Oppenheimer etc..
Yes Tailgunner Joe was powerless to resist the "committee." We were powerless to resist orders to massacre Moro's in the Phillipines, Nazis were powerless to resist murdering Jews, Gypsys et al, our current "leaders" are powerless against the banksters that order them to their bidding..poor Joe..
It is not and never has been "illegal" to be a member of the Communist, Socialist, Progressive, Green or any other political party..Tail Gunner Joe was bent on making it so,,that he surrounded himself with closet gays, sociopaths and fascists only exposed his own lack of character. Remember the Army manual prior to 1948 required active duty personnel to search out and report fascists and like sympathizers..not communists..that all changed after 1948..leave it to Ms West to figure that conundrum out..

We harbor no love for Jack Lew..should be in prison for his dealings with Citi-group with the rest of the Hank Paulson/Geithner gang. And the POTUS could play muni's, fly coach on Southwest and move into a convenience walk up apartment, if he was working at Mc D's that is..The perks Mr. Hanson despises go with the job of leader of the free world..let him be despised for his failures but not for the trappings of his position.

the old tale of "averages" 10 people split their $200,000 equitably into $20,000 shares tho, after a period of years and manipulations, the annual $200,000 devolves unto one person and the other 9 recieve nothing..still an average of $20,000 per person tho in actuallity a situation rife for rebelllion..
Who will claim responsibility for confiscating the US passports of Mr.Paul Robeson and his talented wife while simultaneously denying them the right to work in the same US..?? Perhaps Ann can show us the truth of this parody of American justice.
Unemployment benefits hide the cost of offshoring.. for a little while anyway. Our economic mess was predicted in the 80's by the loony Ross Perot Those nifty "Job Creators" keep creating American jobs in far flung, but tax friendly, environs that don't hire American workers..Ransom should explain why offshoring is good versus unemployment benefits that are bad.

Mr Keryy is a traitor ? Because he Volunteered for service to his country ? or because he recounted the terrible things he witnessed in Vietnam? Do you consider John Wayne or Errol Flynn or Richard Cheney heros ?? cuz those chumps all sat it out with multiple deferments ..Put down the Mack Bolan books and pick up Nick Turse or the photos of Christine Leroy

Always refreshing to see Ollie wax poetic about "incompetance,misfeasance,and malfeasance" without mention of "felony conspiracy" something he has personal knowledge of. And the bit about Senator Kerry's testimony during the Winter Soldier hearings of 1971 is priceless ..imagine lying to congress !! Well Ollie should know about that as well. A disgrace to the USMC
