@Keith — Yeah, Keith, I really AM puzzled at your mention of the Democratic party, particularly in view of the fact that the U.S. political imperative for ALL politicians of any stripe is to shout support for Israel from the rafters. I read Black Agenda Report and I like what I read there. But what you’re quoting from them is not news. I’m a socialist, and I don’t like or trust most U.S. politicians.
What puzzles me more, though, is your screaming hostility, which started when you accused ME of drinking Kool-Aid. And your hostility was magnified in your most recent comment. My advice to you, young man, is to go and have a drink or two, after which you might try to adopt a more balanced and non-confrontational posture when discussing political matters; an attitudinal shift will greatly enhance your credibility.
