re: Anybody else glad Neocons are trending out? - Doc Fenton
[quote]they are both basically the same[/quote] Oh, come on. Sheesh. Let's have some historical context here. The neoconservative movement had virtually no influence on U.S. foreign policy prior to Reagan, except perhaps for the passage of the Jackson-Vanik Amendment into a trade act under For...

re: How Team Obama Tried To Hack The Election - Doc Fenton
Yeah, so it's a gray area of law concerning FISA searches. I see no connection to the assertion that Obama "tried to hack the election," whatever that means. BTW, did you see my posts in that Comey thread? :lol:...

re: How Team Obama Tried To Hack The Election - Doc Fenton
It's only been around since 2009, and it was started by Daniel Ivandjiiski, "a Bulgarian-born former hedge-fund analyst who was barred from the industry for insider trading by FINRA in 2008." ([link=(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zero_Hedge)]LINK[/link]) Bloomberg published a story from Colin Lok...

re: How are you remembering Union Soldiers that died in the Civil War - Doc Fenton
Dammit. You're not a bad guy, Walt. You wouldn't get so much shite around here if you weren't so gung ho about these adolescent obsessions you have with Nazi Germany and the Union Army, and if you weren't so intent on burying everybody here under gigantic walls of historical quotes. In the spirit ...

re: How are you remembering Union Soldiers that died in the Civil War - Doc Fenton
It started as a lame troll by the OP, and then it had WhiskeyPapa jump on board with his usual schtick, at which point I felt like doing a little writing to clarify my own points on the topic and tried to shift the subject along with researching a few stats for other wars. But then WP went into o...

If the Union Soldiers of the 3rd New York Infantry could see the music we listen to today, I'm certain they would try to teach us how to sing with a better big, fat hook: [link=(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eIdXxDARU_0)]LINK[/link].

re: Graham: Comey should be 'held accountable' - POLITICO - Doc Fenton
He certainly seems to deserve it, but I'm not sure a charge can be brought for "blatantly incompetent overreach and improper over-politicized meddling." Here's my take on the proper course of FBI action, and I don't think it should have been too difficult for any director to have followed this: ...

re: Graham: Comey should be 'held accountable' - POLITICO - Doc Fenton
Comey is one of the most bizarre public figures in U.S. government we've ever had. Honestly, I still don't understand what this latest story is really even about. Here is how Holman W. Jenkins Jr. of the WSJ characterized it ([link=(https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-trump-russia-story-starts-makin...
