America's real domestic enemies
What would you call an organization that works to undermine American policy before we go to war, then works to undermine the American war effort by promoting our enemies' talking points, by advancing only the news that would hurt American troop morale, threaten American support for our troops, and ultimately, use our enemies' arguments to drive us into defeat?
Would anti-Bush Democrats have the national support they have if not for this domestic enemy? In fact, would Americans even be taking candidates like Hillary and Obama seriously if subjected to any form of real journalism?

MSM. No. No.
There would be no left if Americans were sufficiently educated to the failure of left leaning ideas. Wherever collectivism, statism, Marxism, etc. has been tried, it has failed. If people knew what a financial disaster Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security are for themselves and they economy, they'd also turn away from the left. If people knew how much money has been spent on mass transit given the little return, they'd turn away. Ethanol. Global Warming. Affirmative Action. Education.
On and on, and on. The ideas of the left are destructive, and they are only made possible by the burden carried by the productive. Were it not for the ignorance and deceit in disseminating their ideas, as aided by the MSM, Academia, etc. the left would not even exist.
But there's never any long term worry because the ideas of the left will always collapse under their own weight. It's only a matter of time.
2. Great post MJ. This is just one of the reasons I try to get some of the news that I see/hear first hand out of Iraq while I am here. I have recently moved to a new base up North and I can say that it is not much worse here than the last place I was at (close to Fallujah). Out of all the explosions I have heard the majority (probably close to 95%) have been controlled detenations by the good folks at EOD (explosive ordinanace disposal) deteonting IED;'s that they found or the local Iraqi's have pointed out. Of course the MSM will never tell you that.
