Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Quote of the Day

.   .   .   candidates on one side are contesting for the same base and working to outdo themselves in fealty to a narrow agenda.   Once that question is settled, the winning side will have to address the shared problems of the population. Even if the rhetoric doesn't show dramatic change, actions may well speak louder.
--- Dana Blankenhorn

You might think Mr. Blankenhorn is referring to the clown parade posing as the Rethug slate of prezdent wannabes.  But, no - his Seeking Alpha article  talks about a totally different situation on the other side of the world.

The Bizarro world of Rethug politics has a weird, also religioulsly motivated, image in the fun house mirror of radical Islam.

Somehow, I'm not surprised.
