America's Counter-Revolution
The Constitution Revisited

From the back cover:

This book challenges the assumption that the Constitution was a landmark in the struggle for liberty. Instead, Sheldon Richman argues, it was the product of a counter-revolution, a setback for the radicalism represented by America’s break with the British empire. Drawing on careful, credible historical scholarship and contemporary political analysis, Richman suggests that this counter-revolution was the work of conservatives who sought a nation of “power, consequence, and grandeur.” America’s Counter-Revolution makes a persuasive case that the Constitution was a victory not for liberty but for the agendas and interests of a militaristic, aristocratic, privilege-seeking ruling class.

Support This

Watch the video below and see if you can figure out why most Iraqis see nothing wrong with killing Americans. Support the troops? Bah!

I have to wonder how many times a day something like this happens. I was going to say that it almost makes me wish that this scenario would come to the US some day, but then I remembered NOLA after Katrina, the War on Drugs, Waco, etc., and remembered Americans have no spirit of resistance left.

Liberators my @$$. We have become purely an occupying force in Iraq, and really need to get basic security setup and get out of there.

Also, did you notice that the military guys left the allegedly stolen wood on the car to also be destroyed? If they were really concerned about looting, you'd think they would try to get the wood returned to its rightful owner. Obviously they didn't give a damn about the wood -- or the looting. They just wanted to show that they are in charge.

Yep, we sure are winning those hearts and minds.
