On Newsmax today, this headline:
"Sen. Lieberman: Don't Rule Out Closing the Border"
I won't have anything more to say about this, because, other than himself, there is not ONE SINGLE PERSON ON EARTH who gives a God damn about what Sen. Lieberman has to say.
While I'm on the subject, I'd like to say a word to people who may wonder why I spend so much time ridiculing conservatives, compared to the coverage I give to positive proposals. This is a reasonable question, and here is my answer:
No honest person is in any doubt about what needs to be done in this country. We need heavy government involvement in medical care. We need major regulation to prevent the rich from constantly victimizing the rest of us. We need to punish torturers because, like any criminals, they will keep at it until they learn that they are going to be stopped. I could go on, but you get the idea.
What is facing us is not what to do, but how we stop well-funded tools of the rich and powerful from wrecking any chance accomplish it. Unfortunately, beaten, humiliated and discredited as they are, they still have the power to hinder and perhaps frustrate any positive movement. Our struggle today is not with the problems themselves, but with those who have an interest in preventing us from dealing with those problems.
