Relativity

     For those of us who grew up with parents and teachers who had vivid memories of WW II (and lots of newsreel footage to back it up), those of you who are going around in the wake of the Iran nuke deal griping about how Israel is just trying to monger war and get the U.S. to fight it for them sound scarily like the speakers at a late-1930s Bund meeting. --And if you don't know what a "Bund" was in this context, you're part of the problem.

Those who fail to remember (and understand) their history are condemned to repeat it.

Moreover, having the media as a fifth-column element only intensifies the potential for Unintended Consequences.

Interesting times that we live in...

I keep expecting to see a NYT picture of John Kerry holding a sheaf of papers aloft in his hand, as he praises the Iran "deal.".

The crazy years. I fear the rise of Nehemiah Scudder.

I have not run across any of these yet.
Today at The Salt Mines, however, I did run into a woman who proudly proclaimed that she was looking forward to voting for Hillary.
I left the room; it's not a great job, but it's the only one I have.

Revisionist history can't wipe out reality... And you're dead on! No pun intended!
