Why Do So Many Generals Hate Freedom (TM)?

I wouldn’t have thought it necessary to blog about the unprecedented act of retired military brass taking a political stance and advocating the ouster of a sitting Defense Secretary, but when Lindsay Lohan being calling “firecrotch” gets more press than the former, I can’t help but jump in. Here’s the tally so far according to ThinkProgress.org:

And let’s not forget that a number of West Point Alumni Hate Freedom (TM), too!

    Primavera, this is terrific stuff. Thanks for sharing! If you start a blog of your own let me know so I can link to it. Great way to be on-topic and relevant, unlike some people I know.

    Trueblue, all the con gobbledegook drivel that these con zombies posted just PROVES what former republicans JOHN DEAN and KEVIN PHILLIPS document in their new books; namely that these con knuckledraggers represent the 23% of “True believer” lemmings that will goosestep over a cliff for their Furer !!!

    On patriotism?

    Let’s ask a couple of REAL liberal republican presidents, shall we….

    Ike, what do ya think?

    “Here in America we are descended in spirit from revolutionists and rebels–men and women who dare to dissent from accepted doctrine.”
    Dwight D. Eisenhower,Address,Columb ia University,May 31,1954

    And Teddy, what say you?

    “Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the President or any other public official save exactly to the degree in which he himself stands by the country. It is patriotic to support him insofar as he efficiently serves the country. It is unpatriotic not to oppose him to the exact extent that by inefficiency or otherwise he fails in his duty to stand by the country.”—- President Teddy Roosevelt

    Republicans, please take your party back from these criminals who have hijacked Ike’s & Teddy’s party.

    Chew on those quotes for awhile you fuckin’ morons!!

    Oh yeah, TrueBlue, check out this hilarious photo of two prime Con chickenhawks.

    The EYES say it all. Bwaaahahahahaha…..

    Amazing image, captured during a National Geographic documentary on the rare and wonderful chickenhawk:

    http://shakespearessister.blogspot.com/2006/06/endangered-species.html

    Scientists have named the chickenhawk on the left “Tony Snow” and the chickenhawk on the right “Dan Bartlett.” The reason they look so skittish is because war zones are not the chickenhawks’ natural habitat. These two were misled into the unfamiliar territory by the leader of their pack, called “George Bush,” who was searching for some red meat to throw to all the little baby chickenhawks. My source has told me that we shouldn’t worry about these two adorable little guys, though, because they will soon be returned to the safety of their natural environment, behind large desks, where their asses will unclench and resume the spreading natural to chickenhawks.

    Check out below this Music Video dedicated to Con ChickenHawks!

    “Bravery of Being out of Range!”

    Music Video dedicated to CON ChickenHawks !!!

    Roger Waters (Pink Floyd) Music Video from ’92. Fitting for today’s ChickenHawks as well!

    By the way, The CD is called “Amused to Death” from 1992

    A Masterpiece! Much like THE WALL CD.

    Bwaaaaaaaak bwaaaaaak………

    Trueblue, another thing– Wussie Fucknugget Kender won’t allow my posts on his dorked out blog.

    Bwaaaaaak bwaaaaaak…. Typical CHICKEN con.

    And psycho “Exorcist” Raven ERASED all the Con ChickenHawks list on her site too!

    Bwaaaaaaaak bwaaaaaaaak……..

    What pathetic cretins !!!

    Yo kender & Raven—- 3 words for ya: REPUBLICAN Great Depression!

    Open a history book and go to the chapter on GOP Great Depression and then continue on to the chapter on FDR’s LIBERAL “New Deal” that rescued economy from GOP laissez-faire failures.(BTW,as the liberals were saving economy from GOP failures, FDR liberals were leading the fight against RIGHTWING fascism in Italy,Germany & Japan. That’s right, Republicans in congress were cowards and did NOT want to help Great Britain against the fascists.see book “Ilustrious Dunderheads” by Rex Stout. It documents ALL GOP floor speeches in congress PROVING this GOP cowardice!

    After that, read a book: WEALTH & DEMOCRACY: A Political History of the American Rich by Kevin Phillips, former Nixon aid and former Republican strategist
    This book documents the GOP failures from Coolidge/Hoover on through Reagan up to the present GOP fiscal disaster!

    After that read a book by MIT economist Lester Thurow– HEAD to HEAD !( about the big three economies JAPAN,GERMANY,USA)

    Then Read: The Triumph of Politics: Why the Reagan Revolution Failed

    by David Alan Stockman, David A. Stockman served as Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) during former President Reagan’s first term.

    Obviously you need remedial economics & history training !

    I guess Abe & Teddy lived in a “SOCIALIST/MARXIST/PINKO” world too eh?

    What pathetic imbeciles you cons are !!!!!

    The heart of the CON worldview is CHEAP LABOR! And cons have hoodwinked followers to believe that crony- CAPITALISM & DEMOCRACY are same thing. They’re NOT! Capitalism (economic system) is SUBORDINATE to Democracy of We the People (system of governance)

    “We can have democracy in this country, or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few. But we can’t have both.” — Louis Brandeis,Supreme Court Justice

    And what did two of the greatest LIBERAL Republican leaders in history have to say?

    “Labor is prior to and independent of capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration..”

    Abraham Lincoln–First State of the Union Address (3 December 1861

    “We wish to control big business so as to secure among other things good wages for the wage-workers and reasonable prices for the consumers. Wherever in any business the prosperity of the businessman is obtained by lowering the wages of his workmen and charging an excessive price to the consumers we wish to interfere and stop such practices. We will not submit to that kind of prosperity any more than we will submit to prosperity obtained by swindling investors or getting unfair advantages over business rivals.”

    Teddy Roosevelt
    Speech at Progressive Party Convention, Chicago (17 June 1912)

    These two great LIBERAL republican presidents are rolling in their graves on the reactionary fascist hijacking of their once proud party.

    And an apt quote below from famed economist JK Galbraith,

    “The modern conservative is engaged in one of man’s oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.”

    John Kenneth Galbraith, esteemed Economist,advisor to FDR and proponent of REGULATED Capitalism ( the middle way) as an economic system SUBSERVIENT to political DEMOCRACY of WE THE PEOPLE
