It's still a month to go to Halloween, and Pat Robertson is already blathering about the Devil.

Ben Cochran needs to not be in the medical profession.

"Full-blown sexual paganization of society" -- now that sounds like a program I can support! (Here's what the right-wing alternative really looks like.)

Scott Lively's paranoia about gays is just getting worse (found via Republic of Gilead).

Joseph Cannon

In 1944 Southern justice executed George Stinney, who, like Troy Davis, may well have been innocent. He was 14.

On the deficit, the public trusts Obama far more than it trusts the Republicans.

George Washington wouldn't have approved of Bachmann's anti- Gardasil stand.

Another victim confronts Strauss-Kahn.

Yesterday Denmark, tomorrow France? Socialists win the French Senate for the first time since 1958.

Don't be fooled by this week's Bundestag vote -- Germany is on the verge of rebellion against the EU's usurpation of democracy, as establishment political figures openly challenge the sacred cows of "ever closer union".

The Greek people prepare for a bitter struggle against EU-imposed austerity policies, with major strikes and a middle-class tax revolt.

The same policies have given Spain the worst unemployment rate in the developed world, prompting a dissolution of Parliament.

Interesting to read the different perspectives re Occupy. The responses to Feminist's article are to be expected but it was rather brave to put up an opinion that wasn't just another cheering squad. I'm pro one minute and not so much the next. I do have serious concerns about the anarchist elements, however - and they're pretty glaring.

Not your usual comment here but army types, both active and retired like me, sometimes feel the fly boys and girls must think they can walk on water. About every twenty years or some Air Force desk jockey comes up with a report claiming the Air Force can do everything the other services do including the navy.

It always revolves around the concept of air power and delievery of massive amounts of bombs and or missiles. Of course when they pull some out of the box stunt their pilot usually gets shot down with the wreckage of some multi-million dollar plane loaded up for scientists in Russia and now China to inspect.

Bunch of blued suited weenies.

LP: Obviously it's early yet to tell where this will go, if anywhere. I just would hate to see the energy and enthusiasm that should go into the election campaign get sidetracked into something that won't achieve anything due to lack of a clear program.

BB: I don't have enough knowledge to take sides among the military services. I didn't get the feeling you're describing from those videos, though.
