As long as there are enough people in power adhering to the Herr/Frau dichotomy (or double standard?), Hillary may get a break initially, getting her ways to her heart's desires without starting World War III.
Conducts unbecoming of a lady can be most effective in the testosterone-permeated power players' locker-room.
We have no clue what either party is preparing. You can bet the wheels are turning though. Dems are in a bind here. Biden would probably lose and he's getting up there. I think women are generally scared to challenge Hill. Not sure if people would get excited about Cory Booker. Hill might be undecided. Warren might step up if Hill steps aside. Cuomo maybe?
We'll just have to wait and see. As far as repubs, who cares.
I think the boomers really need to step aside. It's been almost 24 years. If it has to be a dem or repub I say Baldwin.
You don't think that the neocons plan on leaving you Aussies behind in the new neocolonial World they are creating, do you?
Whether you are the dog who is wagging his tail or in this case the tail that is being wagged by the dog, we both have much to be concerned about, as borders & oceans will mean little.
Very valid question.
Are you including my country, the U.S., as a Britain's colony although we had fought to escape Britain's control?
Read a very interesting comment yesterday. Someone from Crimea said the real issue is retirement.Who offers the better deal for seniors in these places?
Yes, 2C is most certainly becoming a pipe dream of world "leaders." Even if 350.org changing to 400.org and holding it there would be nothing short of the greatest miracle of all time.
Carbon dioxide trapping heat works the same way inside of a laboratory as outside of it in nature. That is the fundamental idea in science that things work the same way no matter where they are. There may be mitigating factors in nature but counting on them amounts to utter stupidity.
Yeah, right, all ye faithful, pray for manna to descend from heaven to feed all of the world's hungry people. It never worked but I tell all ye faithful that the loaf of bread that I put into a hungry's hands worked!
Hey OWSers!! Long time no post.
The question is, will she run.
Ukraine and its neighborhood have running through them many fault lines between past empires, ethnicities, resettlements, annexations, genocides, and reconstitutions. Shall we sum it up as "sordid history"? There is no denying that by any reasonable person.
We CANNOT really change historical facts (although there ARE countries and peoples actively rewriting histories) in the past but we can create a better future based partly on learning of our sordid histories. Ukraine was not tried at Nuremberg probably because of its being a part of the victorious Soviet Union. That set a bad example for posterity but Ukraine was not the only country.
Let us quote Rodney King, "Can't we all just get along?" without burning this joint to ashes.
Back in 2003 when then President Bush was mongering for war with Iraq, Frau Hillary vigorously backed him up to the shock of many of her then liberal supporters. That was when she became known as the "War Whore". Her true character was revealed of being a 100% suck up to the Neocon 1% who is out to take over the planet. Since then she emphatically promoted just about every war the U.S.A. embarked on. As Secretary of State under Obama she promoted the bombing of Libya. She promoted the attacking Syria. Recently she made inflammatory remarks about the crisis in the Ukraine in an effort to promote a full scale war there. If it was a testosterone laden Neanderthal male that was doing all that warmongering one would say that is par for the course. But for a female to engage in such activity, that is utter disgusting. By all accounts she is a warmongering psycho-bitch who belongs in a rubber room, and not in the oval office. If she becomes Prez we'll have world war III within three months of her taking office!
Well, that's where you're wrong, Zen. Anyone that can read my comments, flip's comments, and hc's and assume we're all the same person has a complete inability to discern one user from another. "Friedmanmises" is a perfect example. He (or she) comes on here talking about the so-called benefits of capitalism and by some lunatic deconstruct of his username (fried man mises) you come to the bizarre conclusion it was Trashy posing as Jart (neither of which gives a fuck about capitalism) under the username 'friedmanmises.' Now that, my friend, is delusion.
Some lending institutions are definitely predatory so caveat emptor. It may just be inherent in our society that psychopaths and predators tend to rise up fast on the economic ladder with the aura of "financial math." Andy Warwhore's unicorn is not shy being in our face.
Good to see you, Zen.
You answer my question and I'll answer yours.
There's quite a bit of evidence to suggest that no, Assad did not gas his own people, and I cannot say definitively, but it's immaterial. Number one, I don't believe in the concept of America as the world's police, so we had no legitimate right to intervene in that affair.
Number two, you must understand that the neocon's desire to get involved in Syria has nothing to do with humanitarianism and everything to do with the the New Great Game, i.e. control of resources (oil, gas, lithium, opium).
And lastly, my point was essentially about Hillary. Her neocon tendencies are pretty much beyond dispute.
yeah-ya - and in your little pea brain the whole room goes atwitter
only trouble is most of you mutherfukers around here are all the same person, so what you are really imagining is nothing more than a very loud echo . . .
no way. Welcome back GF.
Your credibility is no longer in doubt, Zen, rest assured.
You're a daisy if you do..
...now ain't that a daisy...
Has it ever been tried? What would you suggest
Has it ever been tried? What would you suggest
well I dunno but the very first thing I would very closely examine is the fact that there are only 5 justices who supported Citizens United, not the Supreme Court in its entirety.
And there is, among other things, a historical precedent for impeachment:
and then there are other, lower profile methods
No, i just saw the movie 'Insidious' and made me think of how vile and nasty the radical right wing is. Feel free to take shots at obomber, just throw some the right wings way as well, unless you were dead asleep 2001-2009, you may at least try to be an equal opportunity offender. ( I'm a ufo hunter too, it's just much easier to spot the Nazis)
I'm sure I would like it. Sitting down to watch controversial science is fun, I get all warm and fuzzy just knowing that with my own behavior I get to thumb my nose at conservative Koch whores . . .
it gives me goose bumps.
you know what? I'm all for not raising the minimum wage in red states. I'm all for it.
Shouldn't be too long at all, and there won't be any red states.
