Kind of like this-
Major Harold Kushner said, "I think the purposes of Fonda and Clark were to hurt the United States, to radicalize our young people, and to undermine our authority."
From:
The "Apology" of Jane Fonda
After Jane Fonda called Yorktown sailors
and other US Navy sailors
"war criminals"
By Bruce Herschensohn
This article appeared in the July 7, 2000 edition of The Washington Times.
Americans are in a hurry to be done with the past and go on to tomorrow. It's why we read the Sunday newspapers on Saturday. It would be all right if we weren't in a hurry to forget the past, but we do forget the past.....

I read the linked article.

Fonda was totally right.

The Wingnuts hate her because she challenged their legitimacy. A false legitimacy which was finally laid to rest by "The Pentagon Papers".

Anyone who thinks U.S. involvement in Indochina was anything close to honorable doesn't know the facts.

It was a CIA set-up and 58,000 young men paid the price.

LOL,

I see the little GOP judge-it elfs are in action.

Boys, I could care less about the mute, emasculated quality of a judge-it.

Come out into the open and challenge what I say with facts, not cute little smiley faces.

That is... if you can.

No, dikweed. You're the idiot.

The Gulf of Tonkin was set up by the CIA.

This is proven by Fletcher Prouty's book, "The Secret Team" and "The Pentagon Papers".

The CIA consists of ultra-right wingers. So in the final analysis, the right started the Vietnam War.

What are you, stupid? When I mention "The Secret Team" and "The Pentagon Papers", these are UMIMPEACHABLE SOURCES.

In fact, the CIA tried to keep "The Secret Team" from ever being published. Nixon had his attorney general file an injunction against the NY Times to quash further disssemination, and the case went all they way to the Supreme Court.

In both instances, the rightwing screamed that national security was at stake. We now know the only thing at stake was concealment of their guilt.

Charles Krauthammer once again makes sense. Reminding us the Democrats haven't proposed a budget since the iPad (notwithstanding Obama's two proposals which were summarily rejected by all Democrats in the Senate) and saying it would be nice if the Senate would come up with one just as Ryan and the Republicans have done so they can share some of the scrutiny which they are happy to let the Republicans take while they do absolutely nothing.

That is precisely why Senate Democrats won't come up with a budget. It might come under scrutiny and it's better to do nothing and blame republicans who are trying to do something than risk losing votes.

In other words, they are cowards.

If you don't think Democrats have the same loyalities to corporations, you're more brainwashed than I imagined.

The Republicans' loyalty, by the way, is to a free market. Minimal government oversight to protect consumers is all that's needed.

Yes, Democrats do cater to corporations to some extent. But I would argue not quite to the same degree. For example, during the Bush years, representatives from the pharmaceutical companies were allowed to stand in at the DEA and participate in the approval process for new drugs.

The Republicans are not committed to a free market. That's pablum for the masses. They're committed to any group that gives them enough money. In reality, Republican leadership is quite comfortable with monopolistic or oligopolistic control of the market as evidenced by GOP legislation which allowed a handful of owners to dominate cable media which before was much more diversified.

And no, minimal government oversight is not enough. There are too many areas in need of policing. The Republican approach is to remove as many regulatory "cops" as possible, which is exactly what the Wall Street wolves want.
