John McCain's : ‘League of Democracies’ Is a Frightening Thought

By Robert Skidelsky

This is the thrust of McCain’s message. As he put it, the US
was built for a purpose — to serve “eternal and universal
principles.” Its God-given task is to build an “enduring global
peace on the foundations of freedom, security, prosperity
and hope.” Continue

The Poverty of Reaganism-Bushism

By David Michael Green

Marx wasn't sitting in the British Museum all day long
figuring out how he could get rich by exploiting the
masses. Reaganism-Bushism was always just the
opposite - it's just as non-altruistic a program as thievery
always was, whatever fancy label you want to paste on it,
however much lipstick you slather on the pig. Just as evil
as slavery, colonialism, worker exploitation and
environmental depredation ever were. Continue

Bernanke is merely being polite in not rubbing the faces

unless they are willing to make a structural break and
change the world monetary system radically, they will
remain powerless to avoid giving the United States a

great! It’s what’s going to keep America great! Anyone
who disagrees with that has no concept of history, economics,

about what it means to be a proud American. And anyone
who disagrees is a poor, pathetic, lazy loser that probably
couldn’t make money with an insider trading tip.
