Paul Krugman, 7/20/04 NY Times: In the original version of "The Manchurian Candidate," Senator John Iselin, whom Chinese agents are plotting to put in the White House, is a right-wing demagogue modeled on Senator Joseph McCarthy. As Roger Ebert wrote, the plan is to "use anticommunist hysteria as...

Suppressing the Vote (in Florida) by WalterM140

Dog Fight For the Presidency by WalterM140
Only in an election year ruled by fiction could a sissy who used Daddy's connections to escape Vietnam turn an actual war hero into a girlie-man. As we leave the scripted conventions behind us, that is the uber-scenario that has locked into place, brilliantly engineered by the president of the...

Bush AWOL from the Guard -- Best Yet by WalterM140
"President Bush claims that in the fall of 1972, he fulfilled his Air National Guard duties at a base in Alabama. But Bob Mintz was there - and he is sure Mr. Bush wasn't. Plenty of other officers have said they also don't recall that Mr. Bush ever showed up for drills at the base. What's...

US debt is higher now than during Depression by WalterM140
The United States is shouldering a greater debt burden today than it did during the Great Depression. This seems a no-brainer. Everyone didn't have their hands out in the 1930's, more people lived on farms, Johnson's Great Society was a socialist dream, etc. The U.S. military was very small...

B-17's and Strategic Bombing (Was:Was D VII a good plane) by WalterM140
BTW trying to having a debate with Walt M140 is about as entertaining as talking to a concrete wall :-) Are you -ever- going to apologize for saying that Martin Caidin fabricated the story of the B-17 that survived a head on collision with an FW-190? Should I post the serial number of that...

If U.S. Marines were really targeting civilians, or anybody else, there wouldn't be nearly as many wounded as this laughable article suggests. There would be a lot more dead, however. Walt

More Bush Administration Idiocy by WalterM140
From the NYT: It's hard to imagine what the Pentagon was thinking when it told the American Army and Marine replacement divisions bound for Iraq earlier this year to leave their tanks and other heavily armored vehicles behind. American military planners seem to have ignored evidence that armed...
