This story is of interest because the Golden Dawn model has been held out by some as something to copy. From my limited understanding, Golden Dawn is something of a hybrid between a political party and a club, or what other might describe as a gang. It do not know if the allegations of criminal activity are true, but one has to be skeptical since the charged are also viewed as guilty of thoughtcrimes in addition to alleged real crimes.
Bill Antle took the necessary time to respond to Con Inc back slapping over a report in the NY Times last week, that US soldiers were denied proper care after being exposed to chemical weapons like mustard gas.
The WMD Truthers—who, unlike 9-11 Truthers—actually got people killed—were celebrating in Con Inc spheres and it spilled into local politics at least in my neck of the woods. And by all means, go make fun of these particular Truthers. The Big Lie from Con Inc is suggesting that somehow that the NY Times–who ran those ridiculous Judith Miller “Iraq is scay” stories on the frontpage–wasn’t in on the act at the beginning.
While I was away from my computer, I ended up pilling up tabs in my smartphone of stories I wanted to comment on. I’ll dribble them out a couple at a time.
Here is one from 14 Oct that generated some discussion. As a non-interventionist blog, we are obviously going to have an issue with most supposedly conservative talk radio hosts. But the numbers are down and most of their listeners are not non-interventionists. So what is the issue? This is likely a complicated question. I have some ideas, but this author suggests that it may be as simple as there are just too many darn commercials. The excessive volume of commercials is necessary to pay the asking price for the big national names. So are the hosts killing their own product?
You can go here to take the GOP straw poll.
It asks for your top three choice. Surprisingly, Ron Paul is one of the choices. And it allows write-ins. I voted Ron Paul and wrote in Chuck Baldwin and Rep. Jimmy Duncan. I figured that would send a far right message and a non-interventionist message at the same time.
The poll does require registration, so you are setting yourself up for e-mails. Determine for yourself if it is worth it. You can always opt out later.
On a side note, I have been away from computer access for a few days. Sorry for the recent lack of posts.
