The 10 Most Appalling Articles in the Weekly Standard’s Short and Dreadful Life
The Weekly Standard, a conservative magazine founded in 1995 by William Kristol and Fred Barnes with Rupert Murdoch’s money, has expired. Its final issue will be published on Monday.

Most famous for making the case for the catastrophic invasion of Iraq, the magazine was born just one year before Murdoch created Fox News. Both outlets were extremely effective at achieving the same goals via different tactics. Fox was chum for the rubes; the Weekly Standard was chum for Ivy League rubes. Fox pushed mindless belligerence, conspiracism and a deep hatred for reality; the Weekly Standard did the same thing, but with less cleavage and more quotes from Cicero. (In 2009 Murdoch sold it to Philip Anschutz, a fellow billionaire who if anything is more conservative than Murdoch.)

Put another way, Fox was the conservative movement’s amygdala, while the Weekly Standard was its cerebrum, both driving it forward until Trump’s election proved it no longer needed any higher brain functions. But together they played a powerful role in pushing the GOP to where it stands today. (...)

Zuckerberg, in his testimony, made some comment about how he admitted that Silicon Valley was left-leaning.

We need to stop that shit right now. We need to start using the term "not right wing conservative" instead, so we acknowledge that the people running the media, the internet, a lot of the businesses in our nation, and just the folks living in America have a varied nature: moderate, liberal, and even middle of the road Republican. By framing the majority of the nation as "not you" we get to redirect the conversation away from a far-left, far-right fiction, and towards a "most of the country, and then there's you guys" sort of scenario.

I think it's fantastic. Because our society in general is getting bogged down in nit picky things and missing the big picture issues (truth, fairness, interpersonal relationships).

So, leaving behind the "little" issue of Russia and worrying instead - and agreeing on the idea - of honesty and fairness... that's a level of discussion that's absolutely worth it.

Funny though, lots of folks in both Canada and the USA like to think of themselves as "libertarians" but continue to promote pro-war, pro 'kill and take' policies.  

If there were more honest-to-god libertarians, classic liberals and Quakers in North America, perhaps this cycle of endless wealth-destroying war would slow down a bit?  

 




Yea, but I wouldn't hold my breath the duopoly has us by a chokehold. :-(

Eating babies?  No, you love aerial-bombing babies.  Apparently it is a classy, socially acceptable way of killing grandchildren and grandparents.  And of course, because all these civilian, non-terrorist deaths are righteous, there is no threat of blowback.

Just to help clarify that issue, which I thought was cleared up years ago:

"After Loughner’s shooting, some of Palin’s surrogates claimed the map was never intended to portray crosshairs, and instead said they were “surveyor’s symbols.” But that was debunked by Palin herself, when she acknowledged that the symbols were intended to be crosshairs.

It’s unclear whether Loughner even knew of Palin’s map, but it probably would not have changed the outcome. His focus on Giffords began as early as 2007, long before the map was published...”

Those so called cross hairs are actually surveyors marks or alignment marks commonly used in printing.  And it was Bob Beckel, a Democratic strategist who first used those kinds of marks on a political map in the 90's similar to the one referenced as Palin's.

Are you sure you are correct about this kurtster?
As for If I was American, I would be tempted to shoot her myself, that is a remark aimed at your culture. 'Cause you Americans love guns and love shooting each other.  

Within the western world, Americans are unique for their love of shooting each other.
Once upon a time I spent half a decade hitch-hiking and backpacking through South America and Africa.  I went into some extremely dangerous areas.  When I recount this story to regular Americans, I would often get the same question:  why did I not pack a gun?   Often that question was accompanied by disbelief and bewilderment.

Well, there are all kinds of really good reasons why I did not pack a gun.  In fact, I am alive today, precisely because I was not carrying a firearm.   

The point is that only Americans asked that question.  Nobody else from poor developing countries, emerging economies or other rich OECD countries ever asked that question.  

The truth is not pleasant:  many Americans love guns more than they love their fellow Americans.  
Happy 4th of July.
