FOX ain't serving ISIS (directly), they are serving the Neocons

A solid block of FOX talking heads (blockheads? ) are well-known Neocons (WM Kristol, Krauthammer, etc).
The link between Fox and Neocons is inescapable and iron-clad.

The Neocons and US War-industry/MIC have the same goal as ISIS----Vast WAR, involving the whole world.

They want it for different reasons---ISIS, apparently for some insane messianic vision (they are clearly
baiting many nations, 1-at-a-time), while
the Neocons/MIC want it for for $$$$ and global dominance (Project for The New American Century, etc).
Also, war is the best way to control those troublesome dissidents (an old fascist method).

Ultimately, both ISIS and US Corporate Militarists want the same thing.

You can serve 2 masters.

I can understand folks with "mixed feelings" about Snowden, who at least acknowledge...

...How frikkin' indispensable the disclosures are to a so-called "free-society".

Nobody has to LIKE Snowden.

But what he DID, he did for The People (against scary, vengeful elites, with the full-force of corporate media on their side).

I guess some folks just can't think of the world in such complex terms,
and need everything to be black or white.
Then, they know for sure.

US role in Ukraine crisis is not an innocent one

Says William Pfaff, who will likely become
worse-than-Hitler in about another 5-minutes.

Nobody says Putin is a teddy-bear, or that Russia isn't still depressingly primitive in the area
of Gay rights (as is much of the world, sadly, which includes some red state areas in the US).
Basically, Russia is an Oligarchy, like we are in danger of becoming, and rather quickly, too.

But on the issue of Ukraine, America & Europe are not squeaky-clean, by a long-shot.



He has written about this before, but I'm sure all neocons will insist he is lying or delirious.

To those willing and able to see nuance, and irony, this is not all black & white ---- But it is
for neocons and those who desire war.

How about polls on ISSUES?

Do you prefer:
Public Schools or Privatized Charter Schools run for-profit on Public Fund$?
Hillary prefers Privatized Charter Schools.

Do you favor TPP, secretly negotiated and fast-tracked, as currently proposed??
Hillary does.

Do you think Wall St bankers who break the law are untouchable by US Justice,
and "too rich too jail", and do you want a president with a clear "pro-Wall St" bias?
Hillary does, and she's got that bias.

Do you support unconditional backing of Israel and adherence to AIPAC,
no matter how extreme and aggressive their policies may be?
Hillary does.

Do you display a definite hawkish, NEOCON-tilt in your foreign-policy orientation?
Hillary does.

Do you support NSA meta-data spying on ALL Americans?
Hillary does.

Do you support hard-line continuation of America's Drug War?
Hillary does.

Did YOU see yourself as poor, less than ten years before having a net worth of 100-million dollars?
Hillary did.

We can do better.

People who KNOW they are dishonest and WRONG cannot abide criticism

Ayn Rand knew deep down inside she was a phony and a hack.

She was far too weak and flimsy a thinker to withstand any counter-argument or disagreement with her
pathetic excuse for a "philosophy".

Ayn Rand is a joke, taken seriously only by the ignorant, or willfully deceptive.
