Orwell Does America...


Pepe Escobar of Asia Times says he's grateful for the help of Asia Times Online's Bostonian readers. With still so many unanswered questions regarding what took place on the ground in Boston after the bombing, it's time to look at an extra, possible Top Ten list of lingering absurdities.

(my comment) I think he's put a rather interesting, certainly provocative line of questioning into what I was criticized on DU earlier for mentioning. (Yes, I find people on DU are as likely to march in step as Joe-Bag-Of-Donuts does at times).

One reason I find it good to read people like Escobar in particular is that I don't take easily to how the American people rush to agreement of what does and doesn't or can't happen in America. More recently, I wonder why we still have this problem of who shall and shall not be protected constitutionally. Anyway, I digress... Just take a read because if you think it's not worth questioning what the American people should put up with, maybe you should pay a little more attention to articles like this - MMM

1. Thanks, have not read Pepe much of late.

Don't let being savaged on DU upset you too much ...

I think I may even have a use for that link ...

2. Thanks, bewildered!

My husband reads Asia Times and I often forget that it (as well as other) international publications give us a much broader scope of the world...
