No Room On the Spectrum: Why the ‘Left’ and ‘Right’ Are Only
Two Wings of the Same Bird of Prey

I have never felt comfortable with the horizontally-based arrangement that defines political thinking along a “Left” to “Right” continuum. I know this designation arose from the seating order in the old French parliament, but this only adds to our confusion. We have structured our minds to believe that “communism” and “fascism” are polar opposite political systems, and that those desirous of avoiding the vicious “extremes” of either are invited to seek refuge in the safe harbor of the “middle” of the spectrum. In such ways has the state continued to expand its powers, advising the uncritical boobeoisie to vote for the “lesser of two evils.”

Berkeley goes to war
Wednesday, February 6, 2008
There’s nothing surprising – or objectionable – about an anti-war protest outside a Marine Corps recruiting office in Berkeley. Bullhorns, locked arms, chanted slogans: Bring it on if that’s the way demonstrators want to oppose the Iraq war.
According to a Paul campaign press release, Paul’s delegate count increased by three due to a little backroom shake-and-bake. After Paul was eliminated from consideration during the first round of balloting at today’s West Virginia convention, Huckabee’s team struck a deal with Paul supporters…vote for our guy, and we’ll throw you three delegates.

Questions the Press Should Ask
A Pre-Election Attack on Iran Remains a Possibility
President Bush still believes the Iranians are developing nuclear weapons – and so do the Israelis. So for journalists to assume that neither the U.S. nor Israel will attack Iran before the November election could constitute another failure of imagination. Cato’s Leon Hadar suggests questions the press should ask the presidential candidates about what they think the American response should be to various scenarios in the region – including a Gulf-of-Tonkin-like alleged provocation.

When Judged by the Content of His Character (1)
by Dr. Jimmy T. (Gunny) LaBaume
In his famous “I have a dream” speech, Martin Luther King, Jr. hoped for a day when people would be “judged by the content of their character and not by the color of their skin.” That is exactly what I propose to do in this essay—to discover how the speaker himself measures up against his very own yardstick.

Establishment bloggers are in a bind today – attempting to ridicule American icon Willie Nelson for his comments about the WTC twin towers being imploded on 9/11, with the best rebuttal they can muster being the fact that Willie smokes pot.

War By Accident?
By Karen Kwiatkowski
05/02/08 “Lew Rockwell” — – Cheney lives, and he wants more war. According to former CIA officer Phil Giraldi, Cheney remains hard at work fomenting some kind of attack or even war with Iran – and beyond that, he and George W. Bush don’t believe their own CIA’s latest intelligence assessment on Iran, indicating, in short that when it comes to Iran, we have little to fear but fear itself.
