On MLK Day, #Breitbart.com’s John Nolte Links to Anti-MLK White Supremacist Site

Stormfront, brought to you by Breitbart.com
Wingnuts • Views: 35,493

It’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, and today at breitbart.com, editor John Nolte celebrates the civil rights legend’s birthday by launching an attack on Roots author Alex Haley, and linking to an anti-MLK hate site hosted by the white supremacists of stormfront.org:

ALEX HALEY: THE LANCE ARMSTRONG OF LITERATURE.

That link is at the bottom of this screenshot, labeled “the cover up.”

Here’s Google’s cache of the page John Nolte is using for a source; right at the bottom you can see “Hosted by Stormfront,” which to most people would be a red flag. These white supremacists somehow registered the domain name “martinlutherking.org.”

Their “Suggested Books” page features a book about Martin Luther King Jr.’s “plagiarism,” and an advertisement for the autobiography of former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. Yes, really.

The rest of the site is full of nauseatingly hateful content that I won’t quote here.

Stormfront is well-known as one of the web’s main centers of ugly racist hatred, but I guess John Nolte didn’t notice anything wrong when he linked to one of their sites. Apparently their very thin disguise was enough to fool Nolte.

He searched for an attack piece on Alex Haley for some weird right wing reason, and — imagine my surprise — found what he was looking for on a white supremacist hate site.

(h/t: Mark Dujsik.)

UPDATE at 1/21/13 6:06:33 pm

At about 6:02 pm Pacific, John Nolte edited the post to remove the link to the Stormfront site, replacing it with a link to loony Birther site American Thinker, with this update:

UPDATE: This post has been updated to remove a link to a 2002 “New York Post” story posted at an unacceptable site linked to in error. A new source has been added to the post.

Sure, just a harmless “error,” linking to a white supremacist site on MLK Day. Anyone could have done it.

Here’s a saved copy of Nolte’s original post at WebCite, just for the record.

Since the Republican mission for Obama’s first term (i.e., no second term) worked so well, I was wondering what was next for the GOP. Perhaps pissing on fire hydrants and baying at the moon would be a good match for their skill set and temperament.

I’ll admit to being unpleasantly surprised that the RW political hacks would get so close to Stormfront so soon —- they usually try to have a fig leaf or two in place.

Do they honestly think they can discredit Haley’s depiction of what slavery and the slave trade was like? There are plenty of other sources to back-up facts in the story he wrote.

No amount of plagiarism can refute that.

Powell: Republican leaders should stop ‘idiot presentations’ from Palin and birthers

“The Republicans have to stop buying into things that demonize the president,” he explained. “I mean, why aren’t Republican leaders shouting out about all this birther nonsense and all these other things? They’re silent. We should speak out.”

“This is the kind of intolerance that I’ve been talking about, where these idiot presentations continue to be made and you don’t see the senior leadership of the party saying, ‘No, that’s wrong,’” Powell continued. “In fact, they sometimes by not speaking out, they’re encouraging it. And the base keeps buying the stuff. And it’s killing the base of the party. I mean, 26 percent favorability rating for the party right now. It ought to be telling them something, you know?”

“So, instead of attacking me or whoever speaks like I do, look in the mirror and realize, how are we going to win the next election?”

I expect the Wingnut effort to focus on attacking Powell, while the GOP focuses on rigging elections they can’t win any other way.

Yeah, no, that’s not how it works in wingnut-land. If you debunk or discredit one book or author, the whole kit and kaboodle is suspect. I know I keep drawing this comparison, but it keeps becoming more and more valid - the right-wing nutjobs are acting like bona fide conspiracy theorists. I’m just waiting for them to break out the tinfoil hats.

I don’t think that’s what they’re after, FNB. I think they want to deny that slavery in the U.S. ever existed! RWers, especially in the South, are already rewriting history books to indicate that slavery wasn’t so bad. I’ve been black while living in the South for 60 years, and there are a lot of people who want to forget that GA and other states were slaveholding states, that the Civil War was about slavery, and that the negative effects of slavery persist to this day.

re: #31 Charles Johnson

Even if all of the allegations made about MLK’s personal life are true (which is highly doubtful), it remains to be seem how these alleged lapses justify segregation in the South, or lessen the moral force of the civil rights movement that MLK was part of.

These leaps of logic are so obvious to racists and white supremacists, and so unclear to normal people, that they can probably be used as diagnostics.

Not sure what it has to do with anything, but I ran across this astonishing video of a Chilean military parade in 1992, complete with a rousing rendition of Preussens Gloria. You may not know the title, but you’ll recognize the music as well as a few other things in the video. Again, this was in 1992.

Lest you think this has changed with the demise of the dictatorship, this is the 2012 Grand Parade in Santiago, longer but with the same choreography and costuming:

It’s the same reason why the gun nutters are pulling out the nonsense argument that if only the slaves had had guns, they wouldn’t have been slaves, or if only the Selma marchers had had guns, they would’ve gotten their rights faster.

O RLY? Because we all know that the white South, both pre-Civil War and in the Jim Crow era, would have been totally understanding about black people with guns demanding their rights. They wouldn’t have shot and/or lynched them at all.

To be a little more precise, I don’t thing the goal is to deny the existence of slavery.

The goal is to deny the evils of slavery. The only apparent point of that exercise in moral monstrosity is as a prelude to bringing slavery back. Comparatively small tweaks to the prison-industrial complex, and we’d be there.

It’s not inability. Somebody posted that knowing full well what the source was. Now, I’m expecting one of two things: 1) Some kind of half-assed non-apology apology that tries to placate “teh ebil libruls” whilst not alienating the base, or 2) a defiant “I did nothing wrong” post that throws a significant chunk of red meat to the wingnut base. Wonder what the betting odds are on those two options.

Plagiarism

In 2005, Pearce was accused of having plagiarized articles from think tanks like the Heritage Foundation.[17] The articles were published under Pearce’s name in small papers throughout New Mexico. His press secretary, Jim Burns, admitted to having plagiarized the articles himself without Pearce’s knowledge, and quickly resigned.[18]

re: #27 Kragar

The republican leaders already know the GOP base is shrinking. IMO, it’s the major reason all of them are scared sh*tless to say anything about the racism and bigotry which have found a refuge in the party. Look at how Senator Hatch debased himself to get reelected. He became one of the meanest SOBs in the GOP. It’s ironic that they show such fear because for over 30 years they’ve sold themselves as the party of the strong and the Democratic Party as the party of the weak. Who/what they really are has been revealed since Barack Obama has been president. When they start talking about MLK, I tune them O.U.T. It’s impossible for them to convince me, a Black American, with their platitudes about MLK that they really believe in what he stood for—not when their politicians are talking about “blah” people and saying things like “We’ve got to teach black kids how to work and appreciate the value of work.” I’m a parent with a child who graduated from high school and college with honors. My kid has a good job, and I know lots of blacks whose kids also graduated high school and college and know the value of work. The bullsh*t that comes out of RW politicians’ mouths only sells well to the members of their base, not to wider America. This is why they were so “shocked” when they discovered on election night that most Americans don’t hate the president the way their media has programmed them to hate him.

It goes further than just the RWNJ. I remember a co-worker misquoting Theodore Roosevelt’s “speak softly and carry a big stick.” Co-worker used “walk softly and carry a big stick.” I pointed out the mistake and gave him the original quote as well as Roosevelt’s version and the NYT reference. He poo-pooed it saying that I was wrong pointing to his “source” on the internet.

Pamz (& Poison Shorty) get PWN3D.

Pam composed an article in honor of Martin Luther King Day, promoting the hoax letter “To an Anti-Zionist” which was totally not written by MLK. To “authenticate” the bogus letter, she linked to Alouette’s research site.

Anyone clicking through for “authenticated MLK quotes” gets this message:

It has been brought to our attention that this page is being linked by some questionable sites. Therefore we have removed all quotes and reminiscences that we have not been able to personally verify.

Jewish-History.com has attempted to track down the source of this Internet hoax and find out who could have composed this bogus letter, without success. There is no evidence that Dr. King uttered these words at a speech given at Harvard, and whether or not he may have said something like this to someone in a private conversation is impossible to verify.

The hoax appears to have originated with either Marc Schneier or Michael Salberg in spite of vehement denials from CAMERA and the ADL. Somebody obviously thought it would be cool to make up a bogus MLK quote in support of a cause that he may or may not have endorsed.

We warn everyone to be wary of “quotes” from famous people that they may encounter on the Internet.

Pam composed an article in honor of Martin Luther King Day, promoting the hoax letter “To an Anti-Zionist” which was totally not written by MLK. To “authenticate” the bogus letter, she linked to Alouette’s research site.

I loved the poem by Richard Blanco. Wow. He spoke to NPR prior, talking about the honor and the stress of the duty. He did fantastic.

That the President said the words “Stonewall” with Selma, was fucking huge.

Everything was really great.

I loved MO’s coat. Just fucking loved it.

Now, would anyone else who is aggregating and using Breitbart want to be associated with this kind of thing? I would wager dollars to donuts that they wouldn’t. The last thing that major media companies and online companies would want to do is be associated with a site that spreads hate speech. That’s what Nolte’s piece does, and that’s what Breitbart.com is doing.

If the little bitty Taos News in tiny Taos, NM, can figure out how to police comments, big blogs have no excuse.

Dear taosnews.com commenters,

It’s time we had a chat.


Recently, we at taosnews.com have had a spate of negative and inappropriate comments on stories.

Many comments have been inspired by outrage over certain topics the newsroom has covered. Others seem to be random, make little sense, and have nothing to do with the stories the comments are posted to.

Some have expressed frustration that their comments did not appear on taosnews.com

Now, this is a free country. But taosnews.com has the right to refuse to post any comments that we deem to be in violation of our Comment Forum Rules of Conduct.

[…]

Among other rules of play, The Taos News does not tolerate profanity — even if it’s “self-edited” with asterisks, dollar signs or other characters. Try as the commenter might, such edits do little to distract from the inappropriate message being conveyed, even, this day in age, for children. Sorry.

[…]

It’s the same reason why the gun nutters are pulling out the nonsense argument that if only the slaves had had guns, they wouldn’t have been slaves, or if only the Selma marchers had had guns, they would’ve gotten their rights faster.

O RLY? Because we all know that the white South, both pre-Civil War and in the Jim Crow era, would have been totally understanding about black people with guns demanding their rights. They wouldn’t have shot and/or lynched them at all.

Don’t you remember these same people supporting the Black Panthers when they availed themselves of their constitutional right to carry weapons in public?

MLK: “It didn’t cost the nation one penny to integrate lunch counters. It didn’t cost the nation one penny to guarantee the right to vote. And the things that we are calling for now would mean that the nation will have to spend billions of dollars in order to solve these problems.

Interesting human evolution news (though probably not for that Louisiana assemblyman who is concerned about bacterial evolution):

A relative from the Tianyuan Cave

Ancient DNA has revealed that humans living some 40,000 years ago in the area near Beijing were likely related to many present-day Asians and Native Americans

An international team of researchers including Svante Pääbo and Qiaomei Fu of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany, sequenced nuclear and mitochondrial DNA that had been extracted from the leg of an early modern human from Tianyuan Cave near Beijing, China. Analyses of this individual’s DNA showed that the Tianyuan human shared a common origin with the ancestors of many present-day Asians and Native Americans. In addition, the researchers found that the proportion of Neanderthal and Denisovan-DNA in this early modern human is not higher than in people living in this region nowadays.

Humans with morphology similar to present-day humans appear in the fossil record across Eurasia between 40,000 and 50,000 years ago. The genetic relationships between these early modern humans and present-day human populations had not yet been established. Qiaomei Fu, Matthias Meyer and colleagues of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany, extracted nuclear and mitochondrial DNA from a 40,000 year old leg bone found in 2003 at the Tianyuan Cave site located outside Beijing. For their study the researchers were using new techniques that can identify ancient genetic material from an archaeological find even when large quantities of DNA from soil bacteria are present.

The researchers then reconstructed a genetic profile of the leg’s owner. “This individual lived during an important evolutionary transition when early modern humans, who shared certain features with earlier forms such as Neanderthals, were replacing Neanderthals and Denisovans, who later became extinct”, says Svante Pääbo of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, who led the study.


The genetic profile reveals that this early modern human was related to the ancestors of many present-day Asians and Native Americans but had already diverged genetically from the ancestors of present-day Europeans. In addition, the Tianyuan individual did not carry a larger proportion of Neanderthal or Denisovan DNA than present-day people in the region. “More analyses of additional early modern humans across Eurasia will further refine our understanding of when and how modern humans spread across Europe and Asia”, says Svante Pääbo.

[…]

The paper will show up in PNAS later this week.

The relative percentage of DNA related to the Neanderthal and Denisova samples so far decoded, being the same as with most modern populations (except the Papuans) indicates that at least some of the interbreeding happened well before 40,000 years ago. However, there remains the possibility, as shown by some of the populations around Indonesia, that there were later inter-breeding events too.

Humans have been walking (and having sex with each other) on this planet for some time.

Just don’t tell some of the American politicians.

Freep on Obama’s inauguration

To: a fool in paradise
He wouldn’t have been there without the conservative press getting on their knees. And they wouldn’t have gotten to their knees if Soros hadn’t figuratively held a gun to their heads (as confirmed by law enforcement), just like he did to Bill and Hillary Clinton (and their friends Bill Gwatney and Stephanie Tubbs, who were each killed shortly after agreeing to present a petition challenging Obama’s eligibility at the 2008 dem convention), and like he did to the eligibility judges one after the other (as it appears from their blatant unethical and/or unlawful actions - which seem to me to be red flags to tell us they were acting under duress).

2008 was a coup. The systems are all hostage.

The stage is being set for some combination of economic crash, EMP from Iran, and/or biological warfare - most likely at the hands of Hezbollah and Hamas operatives who were flown on direct unchecked flights from Iran to Venezuela, possibly bearing both Saddam Hussein and Bashar Assad’s WMD’s including biological WMD’s, and for whom Eric Holder is paving the way by suing to keep the border unenforced and arming the drug cartels that have been smuggling in terrorists. By now there could be biological weapons stockpiled in every major city just waiting for the signal.

And Obama first had to get Obamacare passed before pushing the Muslim agenda he supports - as he told the (now-ousted0 Egyptian ambassador in January of 2010 - because he wanted to drive doctors out of business and bring on shortages of medicines before the biological warfare hit.

The agenda all sects of Islam agree on is the destruction of the US and Israel and the institution of worldwide sharia. Everything Obama has ever done has advanced those 3 goals. The goals of the communist-Islamist alliance under George Soros - a worldwide alliance that illegally put a foreign enemy combatant into our White House to destroy us from within, as both the communists and Muslims have always said they would do.

America is dead.

The Commonwealth of Virginia would like to remind America why you can’t turn your back on the GOP for a single second:

Virginia GOP Pulls ‘Dirty Trick’ On Inauguration Day

Democrats in Virginia are accusing state Republicans of taking advantage of a prominent civil rights leader’s trip to Washington for the presidential inauguration to pull a “dirty trick” in order to take control of the state Senate in the 2015 elections.

The state Senate is split 20-20 between Republicans and Democrats. On Monday, while state Sen. Henry Marsh (D) — a 79-year-old civil rights veteran — was reportedly in Washington to attend President Obama’s second inaugural, GOP senators forced through a mid-term redistricting plan that Democrats say will make it easier for Republicans to gain a majority.

With Marsh’s absence, Senate Republicans in Richmond had one more vote than Senate Democrats and could push the measure through. The new redistricting map revises the districts created under the 2011 map and would take effect before the next state Senate elections in Virginia and would redraw district lines to maximize the number of safe GOP seats.

This seems to be the GOP’s answer to increasing diversity and a shrinking base: use whatever means necessary to stack the deck in their favor.

Douche move of the week goes to the Virginia state Senate today.

Va. Republicans push through rewrite of Senate districts

Senate Republicans this afternoon pushed through a surprise rewrite of the 2011 redistricting plan that erases a Democratic seat in western Virginia and creates a sixth majority black district that would be located between Petersburg and Danville.

Democrats were shocked by the move, vowing to oppose the new plan in court.

The so-called re-redistricting plan was woven into House-passed legislation that makes technical adjustments to delegates’ districts.

The revised plan cleared the Senate on a party-line vote of 20-19. Missing this afternoon was Sen. Henry L. Marsh III, D-Richmond, who was in Washington for President Barack Obama’s inauguration ceremony.

The new redistricting plans that Virginia Republicans passed would likely change the state senate from a 20-20 tie between Democrats and Republicans to a 27-13 supermajority for Republicans.

Not sure what it has to do with anything, but I ran across this astonishing video of a Chilean military parade in 1992, complete with a rousing rendition of Preussens Gloria. You may not know the title, but you’ll recognize the music as well as a few other things in the video. Again, this was in 1992.

Since noone apparently looked at this, I probably should have spelled out what I found interesting. The Chilean army, today, looks like a re-creation of Hitler’s Wehrmacht, complete with WW2 style German coal scuttle helmets and uniforms and even a lot of goose stepping. I realize that these people are not Nazis, at least most of them are not, but you would think democratic Chile might be a little more sensitive to some of the associations that come with their Prussian military tradition.

Pinochet appears in the 1992 video, the old guy in the Goering style outfit saluting the troops at about 1:15. But no, the Pinochet/German relationship may be the other way around. The German influence, ie obsession, in the Chilean military dates back to the 1870s.

Obama’s second term would have to be viewed as a big success if, by proposing reasonable common sense measures to address some pressing problems, the irrational GOP rage against Obama exposes the GOP for what it now is.

McConnell warns gun owners: Obama and Democrats have you ‘literally surrounded’

In an email sent to his supporters on Sunday night, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) warned that the President and his Democratic allies were planning to take Americans’ guns away.

“You and I are literally surrounded,” McConnell’s campaign manager Jesse Benton wrote. “The gun-grabbers in the Senate are about to launch an all-out-assault on the Second Amendment.”

The email falsely claimed President Barack Obama planned to issue 23 executive orders “to get your guns.” Obama plans to nominate a director for the ATF and direct the Centers for Disease Control to research the causes of gun violence, among other executive actions. None of the executive orders he outlined last week involve anything remotely like gun confiscation.

“The gun-grabbers are in full battle mode,” Benton continued. “And they are serious. What’s at stake? There are almost too many schemes to list.”

Yeah, that really helps the whole “rationable debate”.

Agreeing to prioritization would be completely stupid for the Democrats. With prioritization, the GOP will have every incentive to balk on the debt limit. However, it does make the GOP agenda quite clear. Make the nation insolvent, and then carve it up and deliver it to creditors.

Treasury laid it out to Congress back in ‘11, they don’t have the power to prioritize spending and couldn’t do so even if they did. They are required to pay bills as they come, with the last resort being to stretched out the payment dates. If on any one day, the Treasury has more bills than it has revenue, then we default.

How the Vatican built a secret property empire using Mussolini’s millions

Few passing London tourists would ever guess that the premises of Bulgari, the upmarket jewellers in New Bond Street, had anything to do with the pope. Nor indeed the nearby headquarters of the wealthy investment bank Altium Capital, on the corner of St James’s Square and Pall Mall.

But these office blocks in one of London’s most expensive districts are part of a surprising secret commercial property empire owned by the Vatican.

Behind a disguised offshore company structure, the church’s international portfolio has been built up over the years, using cash originally handed over by Mussolini in return for papal recognition of the Italian fascist regime in 1929.

Since then the international value of Mussolini’s nest-egg has mounted until it now exceeds £500m. In 2006, at the height of the recent property bubble, the Vatican spent £15m of those funds to buy 30 St James’s Square. Other UK properties are at 168 New Bond Street and in the city of Coventry. It also owns blocks of flats in Paris and Switzerland.

Virginia Republicans Give Blacks the Finger on MLK Day

The Virginia state senate is evenly divided between Democrats and Republicans, 20-20. Republicans really hate this, but what can they do? Answer: wait for a Democratic state senator to be absent and jam through a mid-decade redistricting plan that switches one seat from D to R by creating a new pack-and-crack majority black district just south of Richmond. The vote was 20-19.

But wait! That’s not all. The deed was done on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and at the end of the session Republicans adjourned in memory of Confederate general Stonewall Jackson, whose birthday is today.

On motion of Senator Stosch, the Senate adjourned in memory or General Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson at 4:10 p.m. to convene Tuesday, January 22, 2013 at 12 m.

re: #338 freetoken

Probably, but he is likely 50 to 60 generations back for most of us, during which means those of us from European descent have just about any group/person in our ancestry.

On a semi-related note, yesterday, out of sheer curiosity, I looked up the range of human eye color - this bit in particular stood out:

In 2008, new research suggested that people with blue eyes have a single common ancestor. Scientists tracked down a genetic mutation that leads to blue eyes. “Originally, we all had brown eyes,” said Eiberg.[30] Eiberg and colleagues showed in a study published in Human Genetics that a mutation in the 86th intron of the HERC2 gene, which is hypothesized to interact with the OCA2 gene promoter, reduced expression of OCA2 with subsequent reduction in melanin production.[31] The authors concluded that the mutation may have arisen in a single individual probably living in the northwestern part of the Black Sea region (around modern Romania) 6,000–10,000 years ago during the Neolithic revolution.[30][31][32] Eiberg stated, “A genetic mutation affecting the OCA2 gene in our chromosomes resulted in the creation of a ‘switch,’ which literally ‘turned off’ the ability to produce brown eyes.

10 generations is only about 300 years back, on average.

It really is amazing what one can discover in our backgrounds.

One thing that’s been driven home to me as I dig into my ancestry is how contingent my very own existence is on the various odd happenings of my ancestors, being the result of numerous long shots of migration and survival.

10 generations is only about 300 years back, on average.

There wasn’t the sort of movement that we have these days, though. On one side I have Icelandic, which hasn’t had slavery since about 1200 or so, and I can actually trace that ancestry very well thanks to Icelands bizarre naming system. That side is virtually all icelanders, with a small influx of Swedes and Danes into Iceland. On the other side, I have Sephardic Jewish, and the history is slightly more muddled but there’s not really anywhere they could have lived that they owned slaves. It’s quite possible that some of my ancestors who were slaves were raped by their slave owners, I guess.

And you’re likely to have repeats in that 1024, especially when you’re dealing with small, insular communities like Sephardic Jews and Icelanders.

And you’re likely to have repeats in that 1024, especially when you’re dealing with small, insular communities like Sephardic Jews and Icelanders.

Especially with those groups, the “collapse” of the ancestral tree will be noticeable. Any two ancestors 10 generations could easily be 100 years apart in their life-periods.

Iceland is quite an isolated community.

Sephardic Jews, like many Iberian populations, have a very complicated history. So many migrations in and out of that corner of Europe. Even if your ancestors strictly enforced marriage within the religion/cult, some Jews could have ended up in Iberia from early Roman times. Just about any empire has tried to land there or invaded for convenience (yes, even Vikings.) One reason the Basques are of interest to genetics studies is that they have tried to remain an isolated population and outside of the wide mixing that was happening on the peninsula.

While the eyes of the nation were turned toward President Barack Obama’s second inauguration on Monday, the Virginia State Senate managed to hurriedly pass a bill that would redistrict the state’s senate seats.

I like her bangs, too. I cut my hair into a shag not too long ago. I could probably rock the bangs pretty easy, at least once I get the layers freshened.

re: #299 Obdicut

Why am I getting “Single and Christian” ads? And why are the women in them so weird-looking? Where have I been visiting on the interwebs, what have I been searching for or discussing or emailing about that gets me bombarded with ads for squinty Christian blondes with big heads, saying “Find God’s match for you”?

And this is the same God who did the Job thing, right? I think I’ll handle my own match.

Yeah, I get the same thing. I’ve been getting splattered with ads for ChristianMingle in e-mail and online for a while now. Not sure if I need to clear cookies, or just avoid reading about religion online.

They’ve got TV ads, though, too, so maybe they’re just shoving it up everyone’s nose lately.

Latest wingnut “logic” I’ve run into to explain why the GOP is actually the good guys in the debt limit fight: They’re not against raising the debt limit, they’re just against raising it unless their demands for severe cuts to “entitlements” are met.

They’ve turned hair-splitting into a competitive sport.

Huh. Which entitlements, I wonder? To Big Oil? Big Ag? Drug companies? Or old people, the poor, the disabled, and to children?

Golly! I’m betting….

re: #436 Lidane

I love it. From all the hysterical RT’s about how they’re not watching the inaugural to the RT’s encouraging “patriots” to wear red tomorrow as a ‘warning’ to Obama that the Red Nation is coming for him to all the depressed Tweets about today being a tragedy, I have to say that all the conservative tears are hilarious.

The hilarious thing is, not all that long ago, “red” was the evil Commie color. You see some of the GOP stagecraft these days, and it doesn’t look much different than something the Supreme Soviet would have churned out.

Well, of course the ones that are “out of control,” of course. Subsidies, tax credits, tax deducations, and numerous other items that benefit rich investors and mega-corporations? The defense budget bigger than most of the first world combined? Those totally aren’t an issue, which is why saying they are proves you’re not “serious” about getting the deficit under control and the debt paid down.

Pitiful, isn’t it?

Social Security could be saved tomorrow if the $110,000 income limit was abolished and if stock options (adjusted for inflation) were treated as income and taxed as such.
