    How does “Deutschland über alles!” translate into English with America substituting for Deutschland? “America over all”? Or, “America rules everyone”? Beginning to feel the resurgent neocon world hegemony in your marrow yet? Like Deutschland of the 1930s? With somebody like Rick Perry or The Newt standing in for UNO who? If so, then cry, the beloved country. For America is going the way of the Roman Empire.

    America, or at least the self-called “conservative” element, has moved to the right of ol’ Barry. Remember, he came out in favor of gays in the military before he died.

    “Let’s shoot for long-term memory” means: “If neocons can reduce history to an exam, then I can rewrite it as a comic strip.”

    @DTPi and LWP: How about National Defense Authorization Act? It gives the Executive Branch more power than a Reichsfuhrer, including making citizens disappear and declaring private clubs as terrorist cells. LEAP, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, could be deemed enemies of the state. I miss the concept of America.

    The last panel is also an indictment against Bush and his ‘Kick the Child in the Behind’ policy that values teaching to the test. Schools are no longer places where learning is valued. Now the only thing that counts is getting a certain score on an arbitrary test created by overpaid conservative agencies.

    Mindless insults to Barry Goldwater (for gays in the military and women’s rights to their own bodies, whom the Republican party abandoned decades ago) and protests against ‘teaching to the test’ (i.e., giving grades without any measurements) are reasons I will never be a Democrat. But I am an Obamaphile, and Extreme Moderate – therefore disliked by both parties.

    Why doesn’t Sec. Powell earn a place in this strip for his oh, so honest and reassuring but lying speech at the U.N. ? W.M.D. anyone?

    Nice try, GT, but even a conservative will probably recognize the professor as a CINO. Still, your point is well taken that those names need to be remembered, if for no other reason than that the next Republican president might nominate one or more of them to the Supreme Court.

    Let’s take a walk down memory lane in terms of the economy and Bush administration too. How about the fact that we almost went into another depression? If you think things are bad now, just think if we had continued down that same road that we were heading down. Let’s hope the American people can get a long term memory in terms of that part too.

    THANKS G.T., These names should be, along with Rove, and “AEI”, burned into the American memory forever, on the same page as that other “great American”- Yamamoto. This is especially true as we consider an unrestrained Persia, ’er, Iran, for all you chickenhawks.

    Powell should have resigned before forwarding the lie to the U.N., but it should stand to America as that “military ethic” and devotion to command structure, just as Rommel, Westmorland, and other generals around the world and through history have bent “ethics” to accommodate “devotion to duty”.

    When the other side can’t think of anything that is of any consequence in regard to an argument, they resort to name calling. Liberals are beginning to wake up however. The other side will have to come up with something besides name calling if they want to be successful in terms of their agenda.

    Iraq is an artificial entity, creating by Winston Churchill after he had one too many whiskeys at lunch. Even the name was created by Churchill. It means strong root or deep-rooted in Arabic. The British imposed a Hashemite Sunni monarchy on a majority Shia population. It was the West’s way of rewarding the Sharif of Mecca for his support during WW I; they gave kingdoms to his sons, carved out of the former Ottoman Empire.

    “… when Iran has, and likely used, a nuclear device, it’ll be interesting to see how effective Liberal long term memory is…” Iran, if it is developing thermonuclear capability, is doing so as a counterbalance against Israel’s thermonuclear arsenal. Ever heard of the US-USSR “balance of power” doctrine? (I didn’t think so.)

    No, THIS yellowcake: “In 2008, the United States facilitated shipping yellowcake (refined uranium ore) out of Iraq. This yellowcake had been stockpiled prior to the first Gulf War, and was declared to the International Atomic Energy Agency and under IAEA safeguards. More than 550 tons of yellowcake was removed from Iraq and eventually shipped to Canada.” Next time, look a little farther than freerepublic for your “facts”.
