professor explains that studies show the GOP is bad.
A University of Michigan department chairwoman has published an article
titled, “It’s Okay To Hate
which will probably make all of her conservative students feel really
comfortable and totally certain that they’re being graded fairly.
“I hate Republicans,” communications department chairwoman and
professor Susan J. Douglas boldly declares in the opening of the piece.
“I can’t stand the thought of having to spend the next two years
watching Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Ted Cruz, Darrell Issa or any
of the legions of other blowhards denying climate change, thwarting
immigration reform or championing fetal ‘personhood.’”
She writes that although the fact that her “tendency is to blame the
Republicans . . . may seem biased,” historical and psychological
research back her up, and so it’s basically actually a fact that
Republicans are bad!
Douglas said that in the 1970s she did work for a Republican, Rhode
Island’s senate minority leader Fred Lippitt, but she hates them all
now because Lippitt was a “brand of Republican” who no longer exists in
that he was “fiscally conservative but progressive about women’s
rights, racial justice and environmental preservation.”
Republicans now, she writes, are focused on the “determined
vilification” of others, and have “crafted a political identity that
rests on a complete repudiation of the idea that the opposing party and
its followers have any legitimacy at all.” (Apparently, the irony of
this accusation given the content of her own article was lost on her.)

a long time I've wondered "what happened to that guy, whose name

sort of disappeared?" and then, just now I remembered. Scrappelface!
survey of 1000 people posed the question: “Is there any
situation in which you could imagine yourself supporting the U.S.
military taking over the powers of [the] federal government?” Nearly
one-third of the respondents – thirty percent – answered in the
affirmative, with 43 percent of Republicans (as opposed to twenty
percent of Democrats) endorsing undisguised military rule.

former West Point instructor who has called for American critics of the
“war on terror” to be imprisoned or executed as traitors suggests that
the U.S. military would be hailed as the “constitutional and political
savior” of the country if it overthrew the civilian government – and a
surprisingly large number of Americans may agree with him.
Legal scholar William C. Bradford, who was forced to resign from his
position as an instructor of law at West Point in August, has privately
circulated a draft of an unpublished law review article entitled “Alea
Iacta Est: The U.S. Coup of 2017.” An abstract of that essay posted to
Bradford’s LinkedIn page adumbrates a scenario in which a U.S.
president – presumably, Barack Obama – becomes an undisguised “tyrant”
who must be replaced by a military junta.
Don't think for
a minute thatthis
scenario isn't part of Obama's governing calculus.

wanted a way to make Germans read the psyop leaflets they dropped over
Germany and Nazi troop formations. Was there a way to not only
increase readership, but have them saved, and shared with friends
and comrades. Hmmmm. Can you think of a way?
