I’m glad he lived past the TFG years to see a measure of sanity returned to our democracy.

Roger Waters is a political moron

Against my better judgment, I watched that Smerconish/Roger Waters CNN clip. The one where Waters defends his labelling Joe Biden as a war criminal and waves off any Russian and/or Chinese responsibility for any of the world’s current troubles.

Waters (among his many whoppers) claims the Soviets were well on the way to winning WWII without American help and that Smerconish is a hopeless ignorant dupe who needs to read more and get this thought that America has ever been on the right side of any significant foreign policy issue out of his empty head.

Like helping the Soviet Union avoid defeat at the hands of Nazi Germany, for instance.

Stalin and Kruschev are on the record, Roger:

"I want to tell you what, from the Russian point of view, the president and the United States have done for victory in this war," Stalin said. "The most important things in this war are the machines.... The United States is a country of machines. Without the machines we received through Lend-Lease, we would have lost the war."

Nikita Khrushchev offered the same opinion.

"If the United States had not helped us, we would not have won the war," he wrote in his memoirs. "One-on-one against Hitler's Germany, we would not have withstood its onslaught and would have lost the war. No one talks about this officially, and Stalin never, I think, left any written traces of his opinion, but I can say that he expressed this view several times in conversations with me."

Murdoch's NY Post: Trump has proven himself unworthy to be this country's chief executive again.

Followed by about 1,000 mostly unbelieving comments.
