Here is an interesting thought from the last Democratic Debate

Remember, in the 1930s, Stalin was considered more of a threat to world peace than Hitler because Stalin was a communist and Hitler wasn't.

Let's just reflare up the cold war, Hillary. Your owners at the MIC need more money.

Hillary Clinton Calls Henry Kissinger a Friend, Praises His Commitment to Democracy

Hillary Clinton has written a review of Henry Kissinger's new book World Order for the Washington Post; it's mostly boilerplate, but there are a few interesting lines:

Kissinger is a friend, and I relied on his counsel when I served as secretary of state. He checked in with me regularly, sharing astute observations about foreign leaders and sending me written reports on his travels. Though we have often seen the world and some of our challenges quite differently, and advocated different responses now and in the past, what comes through clearly in this new book is a conviction that we, and President Obama, share: a belief in the indispensability of continued American leadership in service of a just and liberal order.

Clinton also approvingly quotes a passage in Kissinger's book about “respecting national sovereignty” and “adopting participatory and democratic systems of governance.”

No, this is not The Onion

Well, she has locked up the war criminal vote. Don't tell me it's old. She voted for the butchery in Iraq that spawned ISIS and has no problems calling this war criminal a friend.

I still don't understand how progressives can support someone with "friends" like this.

Sometimes, even a cynic's heart melts. Please watch this 1:20 minute video

and realize that there is good in people. Normally, I have a lot to say. . .with this, I have nothing to say.

She earned her place in Heaven.

In Islamic Malaysia, my private school is bringing in Focus on the Family

to scare the impressionable students about the evils of sex.

After three months here, I can tell you that there are too many fundies here (Muslim fundies, Christian fundies, even Hindu fundies), all of them thinking God talks to them on a two way radio.

I might not survive much longer here. While it is beautiful, the people are are too religious for me. Everyday, there is a a school wide prayer at a school that, when I interviewed, was told was not a religious school.

They are literally forcing me to stomach propaganda from James Dobson. Someone please give me a barf bag.

As soon as my writing money and my salaried position starts at the film production company, I'm in Hong Kong and far away from ingrained theocracy.

About Feeling the Bern

Principle before party is my belief. Lifelong Democrat, but I have no tolerance for blue dogs, tepid centrists, or weak Democrats that feel apologetic to Republicans. The way to win a political war is to fight the enemy using their tactics against them.
