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.

Patience?

On the fourth anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, George II pleaded for patience. Give the new offensive a chance to work, he said. But the debate over whether to give the "surge" a chance distracts from what really matters: the U.S. occupation per se. Opponents of the American empire refused to accept even one day of a U.S. presence in Iraq. The issue isn't whether Bush's plan can bring security to Baghdad. The issue is: what the hell are U.S. forces doing there in the first place? That Bush is even trying to bring stability to Baghdad is evidence of the government's imperial ambitions. It's none of the American people's business. The occupation must end now!

What's that got to do with the subject of this blog?

Tim Kalemkarian will end the occupation of Iraq. He just hasn't gotten around to putting it in his Answers.com summary yet.

I hope this clears things up.
