Despite the fact that my comment (the first post of this blog) to you Mr. Creamer was blocked by moderators, presumably due to my criticism that you 'carry the water' for the administration, I'll try again.
When people like you blatantly shovel out the establishment’s barn, ignoring root causes under the guise of a seemingly accurate yet feigned protest over the comparatively benign, like budgets, policies and semantics as if you could discern one President’s aggression over another…it’s little more than poorly crafted spin.
If ‘progressive’ is to conveniently extract differences where there are few and paint broadly where there are many then you have only succeeded in contributing to the mounting piles of disinformation being loaded into the spreader. Read the Article at HuffingtonPost
Please do not misconstrue my observations as some 'holier than thou' soapbox rant, as I have made my share of mistakes however, I think poor Ryan just put an unintentional but perhaps beneficial period on 'living like a jackass' as a warning to others?
Q. Please state, once again: is the current NATO action against Libya illegal?
A. Yes. For the US, it is unconstitutional. For all members of the UN, it does not meet the legal intent of Article 39, which is that the Security Council must find the offending nation to be disturbing international peace, and it also arrogates to the Security Council some new powers to which the treaty signers never agreed (such as the ban on travel for some Libyans). As for NATO, it is disobeying its own Article 1, “The Parties undertake…to settle any international dispute in which they may be involved by peaceful means in such a manner that international peace and security and justice are not endangered….” – and, more generally, it has no legitimate basis for acting as ‘world government” and is thus acting ultra vires.1
How pompous it all is. Then, if the carbon tax rape of the colluding government and corporations wasn’t enough, they attempt to guilt me and or my children into believing we are each equally and personally responsible for destroying the earth.
Sorry to break it to you. The earth will shake us off like a bad cold, regardless of what our corporate or personal environmental policy is. To think it’s within your control.
