  • Communism and human nature (Bolshie Mod sez, Arise ye kittens of the earth!)

    04/05/2005 10:50:57 AM PDT · by Sammy sam · 153 replies · 8,234+ views
    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

    Yahoo! ^ | Jul 14 2005 | Aoife White UN Panel: No Single Nation Should Control Internet Addresses Aoife White Thu Jul 14, 9:38 PM ET BRUSSELS, Belgium (AP)--A U.N. panel created to recommend how the Internet should be run in the future has failed to reach consensus but did agree that no single country should dominate. The United States stated two weeks ago that it intended to maintain control over the computers that serve as the Internet's principal traffic cops. In a report released Thursday, the U.N. panel outlined four possible options for the future of Internet governance for world leaders to consider at a November "Information...

  • Durbin Apology - Not Accepted! - (None Dare Call It Treason! - shameless, treacherous Dems!)

    06/27/2005 8:55:05 AM PDT · by CHARLITE · 44 replies · 1,150+ views
    Illinois Senator Richard J. Durbin – the minority Whip and second most powerful Democrat in the United States Senate – has now joined other Democrat apologists who think (and hope) that Americans will forget what he said last week when he compared the U.S. military's treatment of al-Qaida enemy combatants in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to the treatment doled out by mass-murderers Hitler, Stalin and Pol Pot, whose regimes in Germany, Russia and Cambodia, respectively, wantonly slaughtered tens of millions of innocent people. For the record, approximately nine million people, including six million Jews, died in Hitler's concentration camps; nearly three...

    DURBIN: 'On one occasion the air conditioning had been turned down so far and the temperature was so cold in the room that the barefooted detainee was shaking with cold. On another occasion the air conditioner had been turned off, making the temperature in the unventilated room well over 100 degrees. The detainee was almost unconscious on the floor, with a pile of hair next to him. He had apparently been literally pulling his hair out throughout the night. On another occasion, not only was the temperature unbearably hot, but extremely loud rap music was being played in the room,...
  • What is Being Left... (the fifth installment)

    My Sandmen ^ | 06.16.05 | Mr. Atos
    I am speaking again tonight to Democrats as much as Republicans, asking them to contemplate the recent statements and actions of their Congressional surrogates in both houses - Senator Richard Durbin (D. Illinois) and Representative Charles Rangel (D. New York) - and ask yourselves if they represent you, your values, and your viewpoints. Because, I submit that what is being Left is increasingly at odds with the sensibilities of the majority of both the Democrat Party and the people of America. On Tuesday, Senator Durbin chimed in with his latest denigration of the U.S. Military's actions in the War on...

    AP ^ | June 15, 2005
    CHICAGO -- Illinois Senator Dick Durbin says he won't apologize for comments comparing American interrogators at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to Nazis and Soviet gulags. News of the Democrat's comparison created a buzz around the Internet today, fueled by sound bites of yesterday's Senate floor speech on radio talk shows. By this afternoon, Illinois Republican Party Chairman Andy McKenna asked Durbin to apologize. Durbin says the Bush administration should apologize for abandoning the Geneva Conventions. Human-rights activist groups and some lawmakers -- mostly Democrats -- want Bush to close the prison. But administration officials say some of the people who have...

    Father, son arrested as Cheney motorcade passes By PATRICK LESTER Bucks County Courier Times Plenty of people had choice words for Vice President Dick Cheney as they waited in traffic for his motorcade to make its way through Bucks County Monday. But a 68-year-old Warwick man and his son, frustrated that closed roads prevented them from getting home, went beyond what police were willing to tolerate, and an officer used a stun gun to subdue the father before arresting them. Jay Saddington and his son, Randy, 36, both were arrested for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest at York and Almshouse...

    ST. LOUIS — Dick Weber (search), considered by many to be among the greatest bowlers ever and a three-time bowler of the year, has died. He was 75.

A cause of death was not known. Weber had just returned from the opening of the congress' championships in Baton Rouge, La. James spent Sunday morning with Weber, who gave no indication he was ill.

    The President, First Lady and their parents relaxed at the White House today. Former President GHW Bush visited the press corps on duty in the WH press briefing room. QUOTE OF THE DAY: This week, Washington has been marked by pomp and circumstance. In a free nation, these ceremonies are more than pageantry. They underscore that public office is a public trust. America's elected leaders derive their authority from the consent of the American people, whom we serve. This is a high privilege, and that privilege carries a serious responsibility: to confront problems now, instead of passing them on to...

    WORLD Anti-Doping Agency chief Dick Pound has called for a hearing into allegations former Olympic sprint champion Marion Jones used steroids. Victor Conte, head of controversial San Francisco laboratory BALCO, told an ABC television programme due to be aired in the US tonight he had witnessed Jones injecting herself with banned substances. "It's evidence (Conte's comments)," Pound told Reuters in a telephone interview from his Montreal office today. "I would say it is now time when we can test her credibility and decide whether you believe him (Conte) or her. "We would look to USADA (US Anti-Doping Agency) to do...

    Bill’s library is launching pad for Hillary By DICK MORRIS Syndicated Columnist Last week’s events in Little Rock had less to do with a library retrospective of the Bill Clinton years than a campaign launch for the prospective presidency of Hillary Clinton. Doubt it? Then why was it Hillary, not Bill, who appeared on all the talk shows? It’s his library. But it’s her candidacy. So she did all the softball TV interviews, not him — reminding voters of her availability for 2008 while seeming to talk about the ’90s. The timing is perfect: Democrats demoralized by John Kerry’s defeat...

    The behavior of candidates for political office often reflects what they are seeing in their private polls. That being so, I suspect that the Kerry-Edwards private polls look pretty grim, unlike the public polls which purport to show them running neck-and-neck with the Bush-Cheney ticket. To put it bluntly, both John Kerry and John Edwards are beginning to look more than a little loony. Take for example Kerry's astonishing comparison of terrorists with prostitutes and gamblers. In an interview with the New York Times Magazine, Kerry said: We have to get back to the place we were, where terrorists are...
