The online Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines beachhead as "an area on a hostile shore occupied to secure further landing of troops and supplies." Not a hint of the phrase "starting point," but the phrases "hostile shore" and "landing of troops" does imply somebody is at war.
You are correct, Mr. Tannim, in saying this is not a particularly significant piece of information, but you are the one throwing it into the spotlight. It seems to be something you "...tend to do: blowhard about nothing."
Several decades of liberal mumbo jumbo has brainwashed people into that a representative democracy and a republic are the same thing. THEY ARE NOT. A country can be either a democracy or a republic, NOT BOTH. Those of us old enough to remember know better than to fall for this attempt to merge the two systems. The US is not and never has been a democracy.
The author did not "equate" anarchists with communists and socialists. He merely pointed out that groups who self-identified as anarchists, communists, and socialists, were working together. Apparently, the theoretical differences between these groups does not matter as much to them as it does to you, Mr. Tannim.
Furthermore, the original Anarchists (with a capital 'A') constituted a movement whose main political tactic was to assassinate politicians, often using bombs to take out as many as possible. They were hooligans and proud of it, and I think the Communists are offended that you did not call them hooligans as well.
Finally, classic Anarchists, Communists, and Socialists all have this in common: they all agree that progressive change can only come from the Working Class defeating the Ruling Class and dismantling the capitalist system. Communists also believe that their political system will lead eventually to a "withering away of the state." In other words, their ultimate goal is identical with the Anarchists' goal. They just think it cannot be forced or done immediately, but will take time.
Mr. Tannim, while your thoughts are murky, your methods are crystal clear. Since you cannot refute any arguments using facts and logic, you resort to the crudest form of name-calling, and think you are so clever no one notices your deficiencies.
Furthermore, as I have affirmed many times in this blog, I am not a liberal. I appreciate the fact that your entire rant depends on stereotyping liberals. That is your problem.
I applaud Hunt and Hetfield for producing the film about the perils of pornography. It truly brings awful consequences to viewers and their families. There are some treatments that seem to work. 12-step programs seem to have high relapse rates but some of the new cognitive-behavior-based programs, like the book Power Over Pornography, help overcome the habit and also help control against relapse.
"And those tweaks are what Dave"
The main one was change from the state legislatures selecting Senators to public vote for Senators. This upset the system of checks and balances and took some power away from the states, however, our form of government has not changed.
"a Democratic Representative Republic"
There is no such thing. We are a Constitutional Federal Republic and have been since the Articles of Confederation were replaced.
"No were not a full Representative Democracy but we are also not a full Representative Republic we are both. "
You have no idea what you are talking about.
"It means you and the rest of us get to pick who speaks for us in Washington."
You are completely hung up on the "representative" part of the issue and are confusing yourself. That has squat to do with whether or not we are a republic or a democracy. Refer back to my original post.
And those tweaks are what Dave. O yea a Democratic Representative Republic. In case you havent noticed We vote the people in to represent us we dont just let a small group appoint them like they did when this Country started. Thats the tweak Dave No were not a full Representative Democracy but we are also not a full Representative Republic we are both. Have been for a very very long time and no Dave it dont mean your a Democrat it just means you vote that way it means you get a voice. It means you and the rest of us get to pick who speaks for us in Washington.
Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch founded 'Fascism Forever Club' in school
President's pick found to have led club which battled 'left-wing tendencies' while at Georgetown Preparatory
So if I have a business with employees and I am a Satanist, I can make my employees attend mandatory worship services like Focus on the Family does? And since I am a lesbian, I can deny men getting Viagra on our insurance plan too like they deny women birth control and abortions that are MEDICALLY NECESSARY? Very cool! I wonder how many more moronic rules can I come up with?
Rocky, despite some small tweaks our form of government has not changed. We are still a Republic, not a representative democracy.
Patience, really glad you addressed systemic issues in SE in your article. We need more news media that gets to the roots of things, for example, instead of just talking about crime- talking about the root causes of higher crime rates. Thanks for writing!
Fight Club? Reynolds was found unresponsive by another inmate (not sure any other inmates had something to with it considering Reynolds child abuse charge) the other was being transported back to jail from the hospital when the officer noticed he was in distress. Not sure how these two incidents correlate to a couple deputy's vying for the most "use of force" incidents? In typical DNC-style news stories, its blame now ask questions (i.e. discover the facts) later.
A debate is a much better way to handle this than a lecture and a protest.
Well, there is a definite link between foods and behavior--just look at excitotoxins.
Maybe they ought to lace the inmate food with Valium--kinda hard to be violent when you're asleep all the time...
They're inmates, which means that they are not deserving of what they consider to be "good food". If they wanted good food, they they shouldn't have landed their butts in jail in the first place.
They ought to be lucky that they aren't getting Hawkeye Pierce's "river of liver and ocean of fish." Or Soylent Green.
Boohoo. Supposed to be jail. A reminder that you dont want to come back. Sheriff Elder is running his agency efficiently despite constant cuts to law enforcement. You should be pleased with his ability to work within a tight budget and saving law abiding tax payers money.
Milo Yiannopoulos Speech At Berkeley Canceled Amid Violent Protests
The Berkeley College Republicans had invited the Breitbart editor and notorious Twitter troll to campus to speak.
Old Crank, it was Tim Leigh (Mr. Conspiracy Theory). He didn't get re-elected... no surprise. The voters did the right thing.
Regardless of what this page's resident Trump licking troll sez, it doesn't negate the fact that Lamborn is the quintessential greed driven myopic Republican Koch whore and fits perfectly into the mindset of our "little Bavaria".
I appreciate the fact that in your article you also mentioned about Denver Works opening a satellite office in Sand Creek Lbrary. I live in the southeast area of town and every day I see hard working people who really do need work apprenticeship programs.
I also love the fact that Foid Rescue is helping lower economic situations have healthy fresh choices for food and it debunks the myth and stereotype that people in poverty don't want to eat well.
Thanks for the article
