|This is a "Metablog." By that I mean I post the best from the blogs and the media on Politics and Foreign affairs. You are free to comment on it. |
This is for people who read the MSM and shake their heads at the bias. Each morning I post what amounts to a "national newspaper" of articles and comments from my "Eagle" [socially liberal/fiscally conservative] POV. Those here read what is of interest to them and comment on them from their POV. I describe in detail exactly how I do this here. Message 20865642 Please read it before posting.
I post most of the articles in "clumps" and suggest you check the thread in groups of 50 posts if you are only interested in what I am posting. That way you can pick out and read most of my extracts from the news and the blogs.
1) No personal insults!
2) No six year olds, please.

If I identify you as a "troll," just dropping by to cause trouble, you will be gone with no warning. Don't insult people. No foul language. I will warn by PM, or publicly. Then you will be suspended.

"The Pentagon's new Map," by Dr Thomas Barnett
I find Barnett to be the most important "futurist" thinker around. This is the Esquire article that made Barnett's "bones." It was published just as the Iraqi liberation started.
