of course they despair ... they've lost one of their own.

as usual, Goldberg disappoints... if no anecdotal example of the excesses of government today exceeds that of yesterday, the government is no less worse. To put into plain English, assume the government makes no arrests and takes no prisoners for political reasons (Yes, i know the assumption is false, but this is to help us think our way through it.) In this situation, is the situation today worse than during the so-called 'Red Scare' - a collection of anecdotes passed into history by the very same people working for govt of whom we are not to be concerned. The answer is no. Of course not. Denying a college admission may not be as bad as arresting a man for praising a mass-murderer, but ... denying millions of people a college admission is far worse than harming one guy. In fact, harming one individual by mistake is just that - a tragedy of the human condition - harming millions of people deliberately for political motives creates all sorts of secondary and tertiary crimes - including causing people to join cults, commit suicide, or become terrorists. In Wilson's day, the best the beast could do was draft a zillion men and send them off to die in a war conceived in the halls of Berlin and Paris. After that, a few excesses occurred - which we only know about because supposedly this was the alleged patriots attacking the wonderful, goodie, goodie, leftists. Never mind that the ideologies of these leftists went on to slaughter human beings on a scale that beyond anything a pig farmer can imagine. Yet, today... the govt controls who gets an education, who gets a job, who gets a commercial loan, a govt contract, and healthcare. They control over 40% of the economy. And they have effectively outlawed tens of thousands of business opportunities and occupations. And they sing of racism and bigotry from every media outlet - except when they're screaming it or imposing it by govt edict. Yet, Goldberg is oblivious. Millions of Americans twiddle their thumbs and try to 'turn the other life' over to the lefties to ruin and disaster. Ignore the rest of the planet where their work causes immediate death and ruin, and Goldberg hasn't got a clue? As for my assumption earlier ... take your pick. It's a crime in this country to defend our border, engage an enemy on a battlefield, or shoot a crook. Don't mess with Medicare funding if you're a doctor, and don't think of claiming a DBE/MBE to catch a commercial loan - unless you paid ur dues to the Demokkkrat party.

Chris, aside from killing a lot of North Koreans who are merely slaves to the regime, it hardly seems reasonable to destroy facilities we helped them build. Never mind our creditor, and the principal manufacturer of our non-defense, non-perishable, imports protects their puppet. A better result would be (in the magic fairy land where Demokkkrats do good): Call up the Chinese and threaten to default unless the NK's allow immigration, free speech, trade, and close the prison camps. A carrot/stick for the King: pick the Marcos way out or the Osama way out. It'll will never happen, but if the Chinese thought we might actually go back to making our own dam plasmas I suspect King wacko would be getting an offer he couldn't refuse.

El Loco, term limit the bureaucrats. No more than 20 yrs in Federal Civil Service, and no retirement before the Socialist Insecurity retirement age. Those two rules alone would have rewritten the history of the whole planet ...

Stuart, if/when the economy dips, it will be the Republicans/Tea Party at fault, and if/when it recovers the Demokkkrats will claim success. It matters not a whit if/when that occurs. If the Demokkkrats were accountable for their actions, we would have to prevent a whole sale bleep of the Federally More Evolved Thieves. The public's hate and outrage stoked on decades of Liberal Lies is so high, the situation could easily explode. No doubt that's why Bambam is buying so many bullets ...
Who is paying you?
As for legitimate criticism: the defense of China/NK ... mostly consists of our technology leaked to them with the help and collusion of guess-who? Were it not for such collusion and a blind eye to the spying, their team would still be 10+ years away from where they are today. And that allows for the private sector plundering. Had not one side decided every business was a crime, and effectively handed over the opportunity for economic expansion on our dime to the Chinese, the gap would be greater still. I would not respond to a troll, but seriously you lurkers out there should know N.K. is a prison state - where even children are not immune to the Left-wings bloodthirsty love of jails and concentration camps. Just sayin ...
defend themselves from what? If the US and South Korea were the aggressors, why would North Korea even exist? North Korea attacked South Korea to spread the vile, hateful, intolerant, genocidal, racist, disease of communism. It exists only b/c when the Chinese resolved to keep their puppet, to perpetuate the slaughter of 60 million human beings and the destruction of untold hundreds of millions of lives ... Truman wet himself and refused to defend the people. In the interim, numerous opportunities have arisen to take North Korea back. Were we the aggressors, would not the potential for losses would have been irrelevant compared to our overwhelming superiority?
Hooverville, only a fool would love a religion worshipping self, and/or the State, and leading to death, violence, and murder. A better response is that the atheists have holidays - April 22, Lenin's day, and May 1, Communism Day, and July 14, Bastille day ... I would also nominate 9 or 10 November, as national atheist day ... to remember 1938...
Ouch! deartola ... bringing facts to the table? I think it's fair to assume that Google's staff is unaware of Cesar's faith or beliefs ... or much of anything else. I'm old enough to recall Cesar taking heat for being Catholic. (Never heard he was a daily communicant tho) But to be fair to critics, he is remembered as a labor/leftist leader. Just as Reverend MLK's GOP membership and Christian faith are conveniently forgotten. He criticized Goldwater and spoke well of Kennedy, and he was popular and effective, so that's enough for the Left.
But they do - have loyalties. And they need those loyalties.
