William M. Arkin - Political gEnius

Arkin wrote a follow up speech article to his 1960's paper recent article in the Washington Post.

It was atricious.

It was, well, BC put it best:

I would say that Mr. Arkin is an embarassment to both the journalistic
profession and the Washington Post, but that's not true: he's an exemplar of

I don't know who you are BC, but I applaud you.

The beginning of retreat

This is the message that republicans such as Warner, Hagel, Smith, Snowe and Collins are supporting. They will disagree, but without their support the Democrats would be unable to mount such a successful drive which is only just to embarrass the President for political gain.

The efforts being mounted are to eventually destroy our mission in the War on Terror and pull us out of Iraq in defeat and disgrace. I addressed the consequences here. To make this effort successful the Democrats have to employ the same methodology used by those opposed to the Vietnam War; disinformation, lies, the media and useful idiots in the Republican party. Now, the anti-freedom movement even get to pony up Vietnam veterans such as Murtha and Hagel to give their "thoughts" more gravitas.

So now, the Democrats "support the troops". Next it will be "support the troops" best by bringing them home by defunding the war.

That it will doom not just those Iraqis that have supported freedom, but also the rest of the population is of no concern. Quite frankly this is what I have come to expect from the modern Democrat Party. I am disgusted that any Republican would.

Read what these republicans are abetting:

One non-binding measure that appears to be gaining traction is sponsored by a
Republican, John Warner of Virginia, and asserts that while Congress "disagrees
with the 'plan' to augment" U.S. troops, legislators should not cut off or
reduce funding for the military presence in Iraq.

"Two years ago, it seemed pretty lonely. Now every politician wants to be seen on television saying something bad about President Bush's handling of the war," Dr. Rusti Eisenstadt, an activist and professor of U.S. history at Hofstra University, told IPS. "The key now is to get [Congress] to do something instead of hiding behind non-binding resolutions."

Activists are setting their sights on a request President Bush is likely to submit to Congress next week for an estimated 100 billion dollars more for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Peace groups would like to see Congress vote against that measure, a
move they see as more important than any progressive piece of legislation
introduced in Congress this year.

"We are looking at a lot of things that are happening in the Congress right now, from a Senate resolution that opposes an escalation (sending more troops to Iraq) but will allow a war to continue, to other bills out there that talk about bringing the troops home and de-funding the war, but which George Bush can veto," said Nancy Lessing of the group Military Families Speak Out.

"The one thing that we see that can end this war is if Congress votes no money on the appropriation that's going to come before them," she added.

"Legislation is so that Congress has cover," added Michael McPherson, executive director of Veterans for Peace. "The bottom line is that we want the troops to come home and we need it to be defunded. All the other stuff is just a game."

The whirlwind we are now seeing is still in the beginning stages. Real Republicans should fight theses anti-freedom republicans every inch of the way and let them know we're fighting them.
We also need to let the Iraqi and Afghanistanian people as well as the terrorists that Americans have the stomach to defeat our enemies and protect ourselves.

William M. Arkin

Arkin is a condescending arrogant prig in all his Liberal know it allness.

These soldiers should be grateful that the American public, which by all
polls overwhelmingly disapproves of the Iraq war and the President's handling of
it, do still offer their support to them, and their respect.

Through every Abu Ghraib and Haditha, through every rape and murder,
the American public has indulged those in uniform, accepting that the incidents
were the product of bad apples or even of some administration or command

Arkin is also an asshole.

Democrat Minimum Wage Bills a no go?

The Democrats control the House and the Senate. Rhetorically, these Democrats are one with the downtrodden. The downtrodden make minimum wage.

Madam Pelosi, in her 100 hours of glory, made even God aware of who is in charge. Unfortunately Little Charlie Rangel either didn't get the memo or more likely ignored it.

The House passed the MWB is a hurry, but the Senate took a minute more to consider the bill's impact on small business. The MWB hourly pay increase will hurt small business' nationwide. So, the Senate (Max Baucus) inserted a tax break to offset the pain caused by the good feeling MWB. Now the Senate will vote on their bill.

Charlie Rangel, no friend of business, doesn't like tax breaks for business, thus he doesn't like the Senate's MWB. There doesn't seem like there will be a compromise anytime soon.
