More Old Notes

Here are some notes on different topics that I had lying around. I think I wrote them in the mid-2000’s.

Why do people think Rethuglicans are strong on defense? Iraq is a disaster. So is Afghanistan.

A lot of people seem to think that strong is just go hurt somebody. People are too concerned about looking tough. They do not care about being smart. Knowing ahead of invading that Sunnis, Shiites and Kurds do not get along would have been good.

Iraq is proving Sun T’zu: wars are not always won by whoever has the strongest army, but whoever has the most knowledge of the entire situation.

Some Rethuglicans call Carter naive. As opposed to who? Bush and Cheney? A president who works for peace or a president who starts wars he cannot finish.

(A lot of conservatives think they know “how the world works” simply because they think they know how the world works.)

Sister: pro-choice
but with same guy forever
Living with mom
if she is getting knocked up by a different guy every month, she has a lot of people fooled

I think for a lot of women it is about not wanting men controlling them. Why some women date assholes is another issue.

Activist judge: you don’t hear conservatives complaining about signing statements
Bush v Gore was activist judging. The whole court switched sides on federalism/state rights’ issues, and said that decision could not be used as a precedent.

Reagan should have been impeached for Iran/Contra
not only defying Congress, but giving arms to enemies of America, and then claiming to know nothing about it. Leadership is not just taking credit for the good stuff.

If he was really not involved, he would have thrown whoever did it in jail.

(see summary of 1980s here  from Immoral Minority  and another here)
A lot of Rethuglicans just regurgitate “Saddam is out of power.” But so what? Iran is stronger. USA is bleeding money. Iraqis are killing and torturing each other. But Rethugs love privatizing everything. So maybe that makes everything okay.
