I'd put them more in the realm of
"Death, Doom, and Destruction (mostly Death)"

Gotta admit, you're sounding more and more like Ann Coulter. (That's not a compliment, either).

Bad things: OK, I get "plunder", but I don't really get why the party supporting universal health care is for "disease", and I'm not sure who the Dems are supposed to be, um, genociding.

Good things: the new site design is spiffy, although I will probably miss your beaming face looking down at us each time we load the page.

Universal health care = disease
Tax increase = plunder
Inaction in Darfur = genocide

Tom, I also miss your (uncomplimentary adjective) mug beaming at us as well.

Well, two things I can expressly cite, associated with the Greens, and whose policies they strongly support:

1) They've been openly against the use of golden rice (genetically modified and enhanced to provide Vitamin-A, noted as a key essential being missing from the diets of the impoverished).

2) They've been against the use of DDT, to the point of withholding aid money to nations which use it. Mosquito killing DDT NOT being available for use can be directly attributed to literally *dual-digit* MILLIONS of malarial deaths in the last 20-30 years, since this policy started, in the wake of "Silent Spring", which, just like the other manifesto of Greendom, "Unsafe At Any Speed", has been demonstrated as being highly inaccurate, specious in general, and a thoroughly dishonest polemic in support of a doubtful cause. In real fact, the evidence cited by Silent Spring is questionable at BEST, flat out wrong in many cases, and shows the same sort of "science" that underlies Anthropogenic Global Warming. The "Green Solution"? "Just use mosquito netting!!". Yeah. Right. That's EXACTLY the same sort of claim behind "AIDS? Just use a condom!!". *If* you're going to snort at one, you damned sure need to snort at the other. And the condom thing is slightly more *rational* even there, since you CAN avoid sex without condoms. Avoiding getting bit by mosquitos is a bit less a matter of voluntary choices.

... And what do you think would be the clear and evident aftermath of "Get Out Of Iraq NOW!!!" unless and until the Iraqi government gets stabilized?


What do you think Saddam was going to continue to do to the Kurds, with 300,000 gassed already?

So, when there is extensive resistence from the Dems to taking out Saddam, ***clearly guilty of genocidal acts***, what does that say about their interest in preventing genocide?

And when they continue to ignore Iran's nuclear ambitions, which WILL result in another Holocaust, this time nuclear, and/or a nuke in DC or in NYC (killing hundreds of thousands at a minimum), what, praytell, do you figure is going to happen there?

So yes, this charge, just like the other, is made and justified.


The sad thing is that so many people are so obliviously blind to all this that it needs to be overtly explained in the first place.

I guess the key final question is:
Will you LEARN from it? Or will you stay blind?

If you are a modern Democrat or a Liberal, I'd bet on the latter, for sure. As a matter of fact, I'd lay odds that, the day after tomorrow, you'd produce the same obliviously clueless argument/claim/question all over again in a different venue.
