AMERICAblog News: State capitalism & you:
"Thanks to the BP spill and the excellent coverage of it by people like Chris in Paris and a host of others, the relationship between the state and capitalism is coming under the microscope — a very good thing. This post offers a bit of orientation, and a small peek forward.
So let's look at three concepts and see how they interact. The first two are:
* The state (the federal government, the People's Republic, the Thousand-Year Reich, whatever)
* The owners of the means of production (capitalists, bankers, the 'Big Boys,' that ilk)
The third concept to notice is the national interest (sometimes mislabeled 'patriotism' or 'chauvinism,' after M. Chauvin)."
This SOB should be so far under a jail.... Fuck George Bush.
Former Argentine president says Bush told him ‘the best way to revitalize the economy is war.’
A Republican opens their mouth and a lie falls out. Must be a Thursday.
Brewer tells conflicting stories about dad's war effort:
"Gov. Jan Brewer said in a recent interview that her father died fighting Nazis in Germany. In fact, the death of Wilford Drinkwine came 10 years after World War II had ended.
During the war, Drinkwine worked as a civilian supervisor for a naval munitions depot in Hawthorne, Nev. He died of lung disease in 1955 in California.
'Knowing that my father died fighting the Nazi regime in Germany, that I lost him when I was 11 because of that... and then to have them call me Hitler's daughter. It hurts. It's ugliness beyond anything I've ever experienced,' Brewer said in the story, published Tuesday.
Fuck no. Hack.
Easy answers to stupid ass question.
