Noam Chomsky: Societal “Breakdown” Gave Us Trump

570

According to one of the most outspoken members of the radical left, Donald Trump’s success can be blamed on the effects of Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, and others who emphasized the free market. In an interview with AlterNet, MIT professor Noam Chomsky said the answer to Trump’s rise was simple:

“Fear,” Chomsky said, “along with the breakdown of society during the neoliberal period. People feel isolated, helpless, victim of powerful forces that they do not understand and cannot influence.”

“Neoliberalism” is a scholarly term meant to encompass economic ideas that promote increased privatization and decreased government influence on the market. These ideas reached their American peak in the 1980s as Republicans pushed for a laissez-faire approach to the free market. These ideas, naturally, are despised by anyone who considers themselves a liberal, though the term itself can lead to confusion.

Chomsky said that America was now in a similar position to the 1930s, when the U.S. was suffering from the Great Depression. “Objectively, poverty and suffering were far greater,” Chomsky said. “But even among poor working people and the unemployed, there was a sense of hope that is lacking now, in large part because of the growth of a militant labor movement and also the existence of political organizations outside the mainstream.”

Chomsky, obviously, is aghast at the thought of a Trump presidency. He told AlterNet that he was a Bernie Sanders supporter, but that he would vote for Hillary Clinton over any of the Republican candidates.

No one can dismiss Chomsky as an idiot, but it’s important to remember that he has a very twisted view of America. He has often called the country a terrorist state and has criticized even the Democratic Party as being entrenched in right-wing policies. It’s no surprise to see him blame the rise of a nationalist outsider like Trump on something as nebulous as “fear.”

On the other hand, he’s not wrong about the “breakdown of society” that started happening in the 1980s. Far from being the result of the free market, though, this breakdown was given wings by an expanded welfare state, the cultural trash that invaded our homes through Hollywood, and the infection of feminism. And that breakdown has continued to this day, leading us to the point where it’s now considered racist to put a black man in prison for committing a crime.

For the last 40 years, the size and scope of our federal government has grown way out of control. And to anyone’s reckoning, it has only led to more problems and less opportunity. Maybe if we actually tried taking the reins off the free market, we would see the true power of economic conservatism.

    I am not a famous thinker or stinker like this fellow but the reason Trump is so popular is what Americans have seen done to their country under O. Fear well YEEEEEHHHHHH fear that the Progressive/Communist/Socialist will take our Republic down.

    The American people obviously were not as stupid as this underground movement that has been working on taking America down for many years thought. They believed their time had come. That is why they have the audacity to be up and in our faces with putting a Progressive and a Socialist in the run for the presidency.

    Surprise.

    1. Reality Check says

      so you are back on the Trump wagon?
      last week you were calling him names.

      is flip flopping a conservative thing?

      or you just want Universal HC?
      or free college for the gran kids?

      2. John E Strom Jr. says

        Reality Check, YOU seem to think BIG government is a good thing. It isn’t. With it comes HIGHER taxes, less freedom and more rules and regulations. Do you REALLY think that’s a good thing?

        1. Reality Check says

          there are things government is good for and things it is not.
          OUR GENERAL WELFARE is one of them.

          even constitutionally mandated.

          you seem to think corporation’s give a crap about anything but profits.

          HOW MANY toxic waste dumps are we still cleaning up?
          1200?

          sure there is a bureaucracy that gets in the way and we need to clean UP, but thinking the corporations will “police themselves” is not something born out by past practices, right John?

          1. TheBlues says

            There are only three things the gov’t should be in charge of. They are 1. Military 2. Police 3. Fire. That is it.

          2. Reality Check says

            It seems you haven’t read the Constitution.
            or have a clue.

            what about foreign policy?
            you think the military covers that you just a Dim Bulb.

            you’re good with corporations causing toxic waste sites?

        2. curmudgeon VN Veteran says

          You a suggesting he has ever had a job and paid taxes. Seems doubtful as he spends too much time trolling Conservative sites with his nonsense trying to appear as smart as adults. Epic failure in all other than his own shallow mind.

          1. Reality Check says

            paid 20 K last year
            how about you?

          2. curmudgeon VN Veteran says

            Yawn! Words are cheap as you are probably aware. You seem to suffer from diarrhea of the mouth however as I’m sure you have been told. You are every bit as boring as you are ignorant.

      3. pappadave says

        This jerk is no “conservative.” Certainly not if he thinks Obama is an “angel” (sic). Obama is a criminal and a tyrant and needs to be residing in the grey bar hotel somewhere…maybe Gitmo.

        1. Reality Check says

          sadly for you old man, you are a deluded.

          Love to hear some example of criminal activity.

          I wonder why the GOP don’t whine about THAT.
          they whine about EVERYTHING ELSE?

          why not criminal activity?
          I think that is impeachable too.

          maybe pappa old fart is LYING or brainwashed?

          do you know what the word “Tyrant” means?

          don’t think so low info con.

            Perhaps when you reach puberty you may gain a bit of wisdom. Doubtful as you have never said an intelligent thing in your entire miserable little dreary life that you didn’t steal from someone else. You are a master of ‘cut and paste’, but I suspect a nine year old Alabama Negro could learn it just as well.

          You should know, A vote for Trump is a guaranteed Dem victory.

      I wonder why most of Bernie’s positions are supported by a majority of Americans?

      cause they WANT to be Socialists?

      1. bandit says

        Hell No ! They ,the indoctrinated up and coming young folks , do not know any better because they have been denied the alternative . CONSERVATISM

        1. Billy says

          bandit- – – you are correct for the most part but I see an awful lot of older people at Sanders gatherings too. Our young “have been indoctrinated” and that is our fault for allowing it to happen, not paying closer attention to what our children are being taught, so it is now up to us to wipe their minds clean of the garbage our education system has filled them with which is at this point probably not doable. We’ve probably lost a whole generation to the progressive / Socialist movement. The best we can do now is make major changes to our education system, bringing it back to what it used to be.

          1. mac12sam12 says

            “Free college.” That means someone else pays, Chief, unless there’s universities where professors and administrators work for nothing. If you want to steal your neighbor’s stuff but don’t have the cojones, vote Bernie.

          2. Reality Check says

            you’re and idiot.
            Free college means Wall Street will be taxed on stock trades.
            pay attention

          3. mac12sam12 says

            If you took every dime from the top 1% it wouldn’t come close to bernie’s $18 trillion dollar plan of “free stuff.” The middle class would take a big hit as well. Free college, so they can graduate to get jobs that aren’t there. Bernie has no chance of getting the nomination anyway.

          4. Reality Check says

            there is no 18trillion plan.
            that is YOU the MORON not doing a spec of homework.

            THAT is YOU being a PARROT.

          5. mac12sam12 says

            Bernie’s plan of free stuff would cost $18 trillion. Give up, he has a zero chance of getting the nomination, SO, no free stuff for you!!

          6. curmudgeon VN Veteran says

            You are a total moron to no one who posts here. You can cure the Bern with a couple doses of penicillin! Would be nice if it would cure your incessant whining.

            I have seen life in Denmark and Sweden.
            healthcare will also include eyes and dental.
            so evil.

            just that 120K education I don’t have to pay for for the kids will offset a great deal.

            Yeah, so is my BIL, but when he turns 65, he has to pay a penalty for that coverage, and he was in a union also. Good luck after 65.

          9. Robert Bynum says

            $19 trillion national debt and counting. $100 trillion in unfunded liabilities. $3 trillion in state, county and municipal debt. Do you see those numbers? Can you understand them? The socialist Utopias you point to with such envy, are ALL up their eyeballs in debt. Maybe you could offer some solutions that do not require national suicide.

          10. Reality Check says

            So lets examine the Debt for the moron of the right, shall we?

            Reagan was the first to TRIPLE the national debt.
            then Bush One DOUBLED the national debt YET AGAIN.

            then Clinton did a little damage and even left GW a SURPLUS.

            then Bush TWO added 76% MORE to the debt
            WHILE giving out a 1.7 TRILLION tax cut (now part of the debt)
            starting TWO wars that Obama had to pay for

            AND

            pushing through the Big Pharma bonus of ONE TRILLION in unpaid for bills that Obama had to pay for.

            Bush the moron also gets credit for the first 1.4 trillion on Obama’ tab
            since that was a GW Bush administration budget.

            so moron of the right, without the GOP we would have a very small
            national debt.

          11. FalloutTex13 says

            Okay, ProgLib douche bag. I am not in the right or the left. I’m an American, among many, that realize NEITHER side is working for the best interest of the PEOPLE.

          12. mac12sam12 says

            Here’s some numbers for you, the socialist countries are broke. In England you have to take a test to see if you qualify for university. The government decides your future. Do you know why so many people from socialist country fly here for healthcare? So they don’t die waiting for operations. Doctor shortages because they don’t want to work for the government. Wasted conversation because Bernie will not get the nomination anyway.

          18. mac12sam12 says

            They are the best to do business with since Obama took over, the wrecking ball of the US economy. We’re a Capitalist country and there isn’t one that is wealthier, yet. Capitalism has pulled more people out of poverty than any other system and it’s one of the reasons China and Russia moved in that direction, and it works fine until the government stick it’s nose in. Sorry, Chief, I already pay enough in taxes and if you think that socialism will make you more successful, it won’t. It destroys the middle class and insures the poor will remain poor and doesn’t elevate anyone.

            “But..but..but..people in socialist countries live longer than people in the US!” Yes, Chief, that’s true. But it’s not because they have a better healthcare system or better doctors, they don’t. The US is second in the world in obesity, Mexico being number one. Hope that was helpful!!

          19. Reality Check says

            hardly fool.

      So Tiger. Are you still trying to blame those executive orders that were signed by JFK, Johnson and Ford in President Obsma? Just was wondering. Still waiting on answer. You have ignored the question over and over afain

      1. jimahrens says

        you forgot Lincoln Were not talking about just anyone were talking about the greedy elite You might want to go back to school.

        1. Cheryl Detar says

          I truly hope your not talking to me about going back to school.

          1. jimahrens says

            No I was not talking to you.

          2. Cheryl Detar says

            Please. I am a retired special needs teacher. I hold 5 state licenses. I am a certified electrician, carpenter, audio and video tech. I have studied the Bible and Constitution. Because, I advocate for peace, I am uneducated? You had better go back to school, yourself, based not only on you ignorance, but also your grammar which is at third grade level. Would you like help with that? I was a third grade teacher.

          3. jimahrens says

            My dear a degree and 300 will buy you a coffee. I have yet to see a degree in common sense. I went to war so you can’t tell me anything I don’t know As far as grammar shove it where the sun don’t shine . Get off your high horse and you might find the real you. Arrogance does not make you look good.. News Flash There is no peace without Strength. And all your b.s about construction trades I had a construction business for 42 years so don’t try to impress me with bullshit.

          4. Cheryl Detar says

            Sorry, that was meant for someone else, here.

        2. Rick Rogers says

          Sorry but your reply makes no sense based on the Subject we were discussing. I am taking a wild shot here and saying maybe you were trying to reply to a different Threat

      2. Cheryl Detar says

        I’m not tiger. However, this is my opinion. The past is done and over. We can’t change it. The blaming needs to stop and we need to go in a different direction. The definition of insanity is: Doing the same things over and over and expecting different results. There’s no fear here. Just anger and I’m not gonna take it anymore.

      3. Cheryl Detar says

        But it is acceptable, that obozo has blamed all his failing on Bush? Just askin’.

        1. John E Strom Jr. says

          AND Rick Rogers I’ll wager most of us will be voting for Trump and wondering why the FBI continues to lie and cover for Hillary. Methinks Mr. Comey (a Republican) was selected by Obama. Perhaps because Obama had dirt on him and could make Mr. Comey useful. Like covering for Hillary.

          Hillary delivers a Supreme Court seat to Obama (something he would kill for) and Obama calls off his FBI dogs. The Apple issue is to,pull,our focus but already FBI Director Comey has lied several times. He gets to fall on his sword for Obama.

      4. Pam Dunn says

        ANd then we get another moronic liberal brain dead turd spewing its load of stupidity; What’s next rear opening, “Blame Bush” ??

        1. Rick Rogers says

          Since its clear you came in on the middle of this without reading anything lest set you straight. Tiger sent me a list of Executive orders that she blamed President Obama for. When I check the Executive order numbers against the National Archive every single one of those orders she listed were signed by JFK, LBJ, and Ford. President Obama was not even out of high school yet. So please explain to me how they were his fault and how this wasn’t another Case of “Obama’s Fault” that the Right seems to love.

    4. Robert Bynum says

      It’s anger, bordering on rage. We are beyond tired and the promotion of everybody that ISN’T an American citizen or part of a minority group has gotten old. That underground group you spoke of, taking down America? They are out in the open now. They are our “leaders”, teachers, “journalists”, mainstream media, celebrities, super wealthy idiots, judges, etc…WE are the counter culture. WE respect the Constitution and expect our government to do the same. WE are “extremists” or “terrorists” for holding these views. I find it bewildering how ProgLibs, with their views on the rights of GOVERNMENT to exercise control over YOUR life, point to US and call us Nazis, racists, bigots, tyrants and any other mindless garbage they can spew. We may have one last chance to turn this around. Trump is a nationalist and I agree with him. The rest of the candidates, from within the system, are either foolish (Sanders), NWO/Deep State selection (Clinton), Globalists lackeys (Rubio, Cruz) or irrelevant. We’ll see what happens, but after the last two elections, I’m apprehensive. Big government = little people.

      1. Cheryl Detar says

        I could not have said it any better. Thanks.

      2. Tiger says

        What an astounding common sense, in your face with everything that matters post. Thank you.

        The last sentence pure gold: “…..I’am apprehensive. Big government =little people.”

They work for us not the other way around.There are some good ones, not many but you can count that on your 2 hands,all the rest are holder oners.Only do what the party wants not the people so now the GOP is falling apart along with the dems.May be time for 2 or 3 new parties with no room for the present dead wood.Think it over America,its either us or them, if you are happy with the treatment that the gov.gives you or do you want them to work for you.Obamacare was not wanted by 68% of the American people but yet they pushed it down our throat.GSA

            Big Gov. at it’s finest under Obama,taxes sky high,but still have to borrow from China.Looks like Obama is on target to turn America into a third world country.

      4. MAHB001 says

        Robert, awesome post… 1000 upvotes. I agree with everything you said right up to calling Cruz a globalists lackey… I don’t see that in Cruz, I was wondering what I missed?

        1. Robert Bynum says

          Cruz recently stated that people that reject GMO products are “unscientific”, essentially ignorant morons. I’m not the most intelligent guy in the world, but I know glyphosate (Roundup) is poison. It has been classified as a “probable” carcinogen and there is no probable about it. I had always admired Cruz too, but after that comment, I have second thoughts. If ever there were an issue of globalism, support for Monsanto is one of them. Do a little research on Monsanto and you will discover a corporation that can only be described as evil. Cruz, though he is apparently reviled by the DC crowd, is still a part of that system and is still beholden to big money donors. His wife works for Goldman Sachs, a definite collaborator in the Fed scheme to keep us under the thumb of central bankers. Their easy money policies have undermined this nation and have financed the welfare state and the condition of perpetual war. Neither has been beneficial for this nation or citizens.

          1. MAHB001 says

            Cruz is tough on the Scientific community for selling out to politicians. He tore apart the Sierra Club President on Climate change showing that they really were nothing but total hypocrites.

            As for Monsanto, I am not familiar with what he said. Roundup is a poison, and completely different than GMO products….

            I think the rest of your post about DC insider and the such is just liberal talking points that have been debunked. I looks like the typical troll crap where they point a finger at someone else and cry RAPE when they are raping someone.

            Ted Cruz’s wife worked on a committee of which she tried to influence that committee with more conservative values, but was not successful. Kind of like Ted Cruz’s career in the Senate. He has fought against the DC crowd and lost. That doesn’t mean he is a liberal.

            I’ll tell you what, I will do more research on Monsanto and Roundup, if you look into the validity of the stuff you believe about Cruz.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sl9-tY1oZNw

          2. Robert Bynum says

            You have valid points and I will look into it. However; what you must understand about GMO is this: They have been created to withstand excessive amounts of Glyphosol (Roundup) in order to kill weeds. It IS a carcinogen and can probably be directly linked to the health crisis in this country and around the world. If I may put you in another tangent, which is related, investigate the Zika virus. The effects of microcephaly can be traced to chemical and toxic contamination. Few cases of microcephaly in Brazil can be linked to Zika. Brazil and Argentina are among the most heavily contaminated places in the world. Roundup is in heavy use in both places. Guess who makes the insecticide to kill Rhe mosquitoes carrying Zika? Monsanto. This entire epidemic is a smokescreen to protect them. If Cruz supports this corporation and is taking political contributions from them, then in my mind, that alone disqualifies him from getting my vote.

          3. Robert Bynum says

            I would also like to add that I am far from liberal. I’m a constitutional libertarian. I have conservative fiscal views and moderate social views. It is my opinion that we have passed the tipping point economically. The taking heads lie, but numbers don’t. I’m supporting the candidate that can give of the softest landing, after the world falls into a deflationary or inflationary depression. I’m supporting Trump.

          4. MAHB001 says

            I respect and understand your convictions. Thank you for the thoughtful and fact based replies.

            I was under the impression that GMO foods were modified for their traits to withstand insect infestation, drought tolerance. among other things. I guess I should add insecticide resistance as well. As I have stated before, I really haven’t studied this subject.

            My favorite has already been eliminated by the Republican Elite, that was Fiorina. She would have destroyed Hillary in a debate to the point that even the Liberal MEDIA could not have put Hillary back together again, and Fiorina never said one thing that I did not agree with.

            I am just p—–sed that the MEDIA, and the Republican elite forced her to withdraw.

            Still haven’t made up my mind yet, but feel we can not go wrong with any of the remaining candidates, especially when you consider the socialism being offered by the other side.

          5. Robert Bynum says

            Well, thank you for respecting my opinions and beliefs. I’ve always found it more constructive to explain a position and have valid arguments to support it, rather than verbally assaulting people that disagree. It’s about enlightening people and being enlightened. It’s ironic that those who shout people down are the same ones demanding to be heard. I believe we’re on the same page and both care for our nation. We believe if something is not done soon, we will be irretrievably lost. As it stands, there is a rough road ahead and it seems crisis is on the horizon. Fifty years of destruction from within have taken a toll. Take care and prepare.

          6. MAHB001 says

            I was late to Church today and came in while the Priest was in the middle of the sermon.

        I see you read the “Bill Bonner diary”. Informative and fun to read. I also subscribe to his in depth coverage of the topics he touches on in the diary. If not an investor no reason to pay for this.

        1. Robert Bynum says

          Yes, I read Bill’s diary, nice observation. I don’t agree with everything he says, but his logic is spot on.

          1. usathoughts says

            We all show a “Tell” as a gambler would say. I love it when Bonner gets into topics just to rile up his readers. People tend to reveal their inner soul, what they really think when angered or in fear. Most times he warns us what is coming the following day.

            Have been asked a number of times; ‘how do I think these things up’ when posting. They are being sarcastic. My answer is always the same; “I don’t”, I pay for it. What I regurgitate is the result of thousands of expert researchers. Posting helps me assimilate what I have reading – it is rather self-serving.

          2. Robert Bynum says

            Once when I was in college, an instructor stopped just short of accusing me of plagerism. He said the report I had turned in on Winston Churchill, sounded as though it had been written by a college professor. In my research on Churchill, I was unable to unearth any new facts on him. In essence, I was only regurgitating and paraphrasing what had already been written and the facts were well known. How many truly original thoughts are humans having these days? I enjoy your insights, keep it up.

          3. usathoughts says

            Thank you for your kind words.

            “Original Thoughts”, is that even possible these days. Within the Scientific community it is an everyday occurrence, even if only incremental. On the Social side of things I think we are more hard wired than otherwise. Mother Nature seems to have set limits on who and what we are. I am quite aware we are trying to push out the boundries but without success.

            I am 73 so my thinking is colored by life long experience.

            An aside; A technological solution is the development of Fusion Reactors. Works just like the Sun. Can create molecules from atoms, then specific molecules into useful forms, and these forms into products. This in addition to unlimited energy. I would turn CERN into a Manhatten like project to make it so. The result, we can all be fat, dumb, and happy. The preditor aspect of our nature will just fade away! Actually this sounds rather terrible!

      6. John Williams says

        I agree with you on most of your post but I must disagree with your placing Cruz in the Globalist lackey category, Rubio, is no question, all establishment, part of the problem not the answer but, in my opinion, Cruz is not. Cruz has worked to follow the constitution, he is knowledgeable about the constitution and has an actual record to prove where he stands, he has proven that he is not afraid to buck the establishment. Cruz has a record for all to see and he does not change his stance just to gather votes and campaign money. A man willing to go to Iowa before the caucus and tell the largest “ethanol producing” state in the country that he will do away with their “federal subsidies” for ethanol is NOT in the business of saying what ever it takes to get money and votes, his stance undoubtedly cost him both and he still won Iowa.

        1. Lyla Cunningham says

          Unfortunately, what he did to Carson showed the people that it is more important for him to lie and cheat his way to the presidency rather than come by it honestly. He forgot that Americans are truly sick and tired of BEING LIED TO. This was so chronic in Cruz that even the ill-informed voter could see what he was doing. He did himself in and I am glad to see his popularity fade. The last thing this country needs is another liar and Rubio will soon find this out as well.

          1. John Williams says

            Unfortunately many people have not bothered to look a little deeper into the allegation on the subject, there is a time line on who said what and when and there is a lot more than what CNN is owning up to, CNN is the big liar involved here. I have heard the response from CNN and they are claiming very little was said, with a quote of “this is all we said and nothing more” when in truth there was a lot more said leaving the Cruz campaign to truly believe that Carson was done. There is also evidence showing the Rubio camp was going after Carson supporters as well. There is more to the story than is being reported by the MSM, if you can call what they do reporting, I have very little faith in much of anything they say. I will stick with Cruz, I am happy with the explanation, and happy with the actual record of what Cruz has stood for and where I believe he will continue to stand.

        YEP your right…. they were the counter culture of the late ’60’s,,,,, ’70’s that went back to school got a libraturd education & is running things. They do the free sex thing to turn around the people, so they used education against us to overthrow the people. I’m old enough to have lived it. U.S. NAVY,, ’65 thru ’69. I remember all to well the fonda’s, alinsky’s, the rise of the black panther movement, Listening to that box of rocks, (AKA) John Kerry talking to congress about the Viet Nam war. He should’ve been shot on the stepps of the congress building as he left. J. Fonda sitting on that anti/aircraft gun emplacement should’ve been shot @ the gates of Burbank airport when she landed in LA.

        1. Phyllis says

          Well don’t you know Kerry was a hero in Vietnam(in his own eyes) and wounded too, a splinter or something hit his hand or something of that sort. I wonder who picked him to get a purple heart? It wasn’t Fonda, she was too busy having pics taken with the enemy. Can’t stand to see her or Kerry on TV to this day.

          1. william couch says

            TOTALLY AGREE!!

          2. william couch says

        It was Janet Napolitano the DHS secretary who called all freedom loving Americans and our Vets terrorists.That was a Obama appointee and the congress approved her.We expect Congress to do a good job of representing us and not themselves.Well that has not worked out very well for the people of America.It gave us Pelosi,H.Reid,D.Durbin,M.McConnell,P.Ryan,J.Boehner and many more but those just mentioned off the top of my head should be on the unemployment line come Jan. 2017

        When today’s Conservatives reference The Constitution, I always suspect, as I’ve noted previously, that they mean unamended, so they can bring slavery back.

        It’s borderline mentally ill to believe that our current economic problems are happening because of increased cultural freedom. Actually, it’s pretty much like the old song says, “Democracy is coming to the USA.”

        It could happen this year!

        1. Robert Bynum says

          I’m not really sure where you’re coming from. If you are denigrating the Constitution, then you know little of freedom. Do you believe your rights are “given” to you by the government? Do you think “conservatives” are the problem? Do conservatives silence free speech? Do conservatives want the government involved in every aspect of our lives? The problem is uninformed and ignorant citizens. They have little knowledge and big opinions. No, I don’t think anybody wants bring slavery back to the US. Not only is it completely wrong, but economically inefficient. But if you look, you will see slavery is alive and well in many parts of the world and it’s in the open. What exactly does “cultural freedom” mean? An open border? Does it mean “America for everybody…except Americans”? I really don’t want to get into the nuts and bolts of our current economic catsteophe in the making. However; our sovereignty was ceded to central bankers in 1913 and the middle-class was sold out by Nixon in 1971, when he removed us from the gold standard. Perpetual war and welfare states can only exist with a fiat currency system, which means money conjured from thin air, backed by nothing but empty promises. Good luck with trying to figure this mess out.

          1. jimmy midnight says

            The Constitution is a consensus document; and many of us understand that it necessarily enabled slavery in the pre-Civil War period. Our Freedoms actually derive from Amendments.

            Fiat currency is a lot like religion in that it’s all, “In the way that you use it.”

        2. HankBar says

          Appropriate name, you are still in the dark. Slavery is the long dead horse the liberals keep beating just in case there is another dollar or another vote to be squeezed out of doing so.

          1. jimmy midnight says

            Oh! and furthermore, whaddya’ think the “other persons” and “sixty percent” verbiage was about?

            Reread, or should I say, “Actually read?”

        3. Michael Holdcraft says

          Midnight, you obviously haven’t ever read the Constitution. There is absolutely nothing in it that supports or encourages Slavery and never was. You need to separate an economic and moral evil that existed at that time from a document that was meant to free all men. Just as today, men do what they will based on their love of mammon. Don’t blame the Constitution for the evil of man. Go read it and then tell me exactly which parts of it supports slavery. You won’t find it.

          1. jimmy midnight says

            Mike you and Hank need, badly need, to look at the History of how the text of our revered Constitution was put together.

            “Us slave-owners are more or less favorably disposed to a permanent break with Mad King George, but our support is conditional. Yew gon’ let us keep our slaves, raight?”

            “Well…uh….SURE!”

          2. HankBar says

            The Democrats never quit owning slaves. They just use a different method. They have made slaves of the minorities with their free lunch policies from the beginning. After Lincoln freed them the Dems had to find another way of owning them.

          3. jimmy midnight says

            Slavery was a brutal way of extracting free labor from owned people, in fact working them to death, and beating or killing them for refusal to work.

            If today’;s minorities are enslaved by programs of public assistance, why doesn’t every single one of them vote Dem. every single time?

            After the Civil War, which freed the slaves, Reconstruction was implemented by Republicans, and black folk in this country voted R for about a century, at least when they were allowed to vote. It was Republican, President Nixon, and his “Southern Strategy,” that brought minorities into the Democratic Party.

            A little more Historical knowledge would serve you well, Hank.

          4. HankBar says

            Look at the percentage of blacks that vote DEM. Fortunately some of the black voters have figured it out, and see how so called public assistance and the multitude of other programs has decimated black families. The ones who have not figured it out remain on the Demo plantation.

          5. jimmy midnight says

            Hey, Hank IMHO voting Republican amounts to a death wish anymore. The overwhelming majority of African-Americans are reasonable, real world people who’ve reached a similar conclusion.

          6. HankBar says

            I’m sure all the blacks in America are just swooning knowing they have you as their leader and mouth piece. LMAO.

          7. jimmy midnight says

            Thankfully, they can speak for themselves now.
            The Jim Crow period, in which they spoke up at grave risk to their lives and property, is not a laughing matter.

      10. OSAMA OBAMA says

        BOOM! The silent majority that the MSM ignores is speaking now!

      11. Gerry Costa says

        Absolutely right on the nose. Great post Tex !!!

      12. Mary Brumley says

        I agree that this may be our very last chance to turn America around. If we can’t do it now, there well may be revolution coming. We certainly don’t want that.

    5. pmbalele says

      Thank Obama was elected and re-elected. Obama saved America. This Country was dripping in seams. Just remember what happened in 2008. John McCain had to suspend his campaign to come to DC to vote for money to bail banks, GM and the Country. Repubs and TPs had spent Clinton surplus and the country was bankrupt. GM CEO and his assistants were hiring their sons and daughters who were illiterate and alcoholics. Smarty pants like Romney etc. were stealing money from banks and shipping to foreign countries. Thanks God we elected and elected our angel Obama. Now the country has recovered. People are once more eating in restaurants; working and earning a living, buying big cars for gas price is now $1 a gal. But the rich Repubs and TPs are at beaches sun-tanning and doing drugs. Now they are blaming society that we have Trump. At least Trump does not do drugs or drink alcohol. I would never vote for Cruz-a non-citizen. At least Rubio is okay, but he hates Latinos and Blacks. Carson is out for talking low about people of his own race.

      1. John E Strom Jr. says

        Pmbalele, what ARE you smoking? Obama is a Muslim communist, hates the United States Constitution – especially the Bill of Rights, and seeks to DESTROY our country. You’ve GOT to be an Afrikan, Muslim or both. If you hate freedom do much – go back where you came from.

        1. pmbalele says

          I believe i have posted the following: “Impeach who? Are these article people crazy? Did you see that 93 years old Black lady in the WH yesterday? She said her life has been fulfilled as an American to see an African-American First Family in the WH. You better be enjoying life like me during the remaining time with President Obama. I have enjoyed life for the last 7 years. Now gas prices are $1 gal. I can afford a huge 8 cylinder Lincoln Navigator; eat in restaurants and leave big tips; Bin Laden, Yemen guy and Benghazi moron are out of commission. People are again working and buying houses. I can go to any clinic and hospital and get treated. What a life! We are in heaven now with Obama as President. I am sure Hillary is going to take the torch from Obama. Just imagine how those GOP morons were calling one another –liars yesterday. None of them is fit for the WH job. Would you believe they did not know Dr. Carson was around because he is too Black? Poor Dr. Carson did not know they were discriminating against him- not asking him questions. GOP lost again with Trump by trumping them. Leave those TPs and Repubs morons alone. They are dangerous to you. Join me and vote for Hillary.

          1. curmudgeon VN Veteran says

            Are you Black, queer or both?

          2. Reality Check says

            are you dumb or just conservative?

          3. pmbalele says

            Yes I am Black and not queer. I love women so much that I wanted to join the Mormon Church with Romney as Mormon Pope. But he lost to President Obama. That was good for me for I had another 4 years to be in heaven. I hope Hillary wins the election. Leave these GOPers to rote with their anger why we have a Black First Family in the WH.

        2. curmudgeon VN Veteran says

          They are delusional and birds of a feather.

        3. Cotton says

          Obama has got a little less than a year left to “destroy” us, then.

          1. John E Strom Jr. says

            Packing the supreme court will help him

        4. Reality Check says

          ” Obama is a Muslim communist”

          now we have all the proof necessary for your 3 day psych evaluation.

      2. alegalcitizen says

        What Clinton surplus? IF there were a surplus there wouldn’t have been a national debt.
        That’s like saying there’s a surplus in your bank account when it’s a minus.
        You need a road map to follow your post, it’s ridiculous!

        1. curmudgeon VN Veteran says

          They conveniently forget to add that Clinton had a Republican Congress that held his feet to the fire.

          1. Reality Check says

            well moron of the right, at least I am not dumb enough to let my history be open.

            of course I know congress was GOP from 95.
            you think I’m a stupid con?

      3. Billy says

        pmbalele – – – YOU are one IGNORANT human being. The garbage you are spewing is pure BS. There is no doubt in my mind you are a Black, probably Socialist, probably Muslim and surely a fool.
        “Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah” is the worst thing that has ever happened to the USA.

        1. pmbalele says

          I am no Muslim no socialist. I hate socialism and communism. Once you have these two philosophies, you’re sure will generate lazy people like Repubs and TPs. On the other hand I hate unmonitored capitalism. This is because pure capitalists tend to forget they have obligation to the people they sell products and service to. That is why GOP had their Memo in Florida said that they were willing to let a woman die of cancer than treating her because she did not have health insurance. Repubs and TPs are godless or people without a soul.

      4. Tiger says

        God had nothing to do with O’s election. That was Satan.

        The country has not recovered, more people still out of work, more people still on unemployment and more people on Food Stamps and government assistance programs than ever at anytime in our country.

        Don’t know what America you are living in but the “Working Class” of this country now pay more for their insurance than ever before due to O care and we have never been as unprotected as a country as we are now along with our standing in the world has hit Rock Bottom. Your O is a disaster and he isn’t through yet.

        You might want to read this article on how the Democrats have planned and schemed through the years to secure the Black votes and keep the minorities on the Plantation and it was not Republicans but Democrats.

          “more people still out of work, more people still on unemployment and more people on Food Stamps and government assistance programs than ever at anytime in our country”
          That is not true today, unemployment has dropped down since the recession, but facts be damned.

          And maybe if Republicans actually appealed to the black voters then people like you wouldn’t complain on how Democrats own it. Oh wait, Ben Carson, too bad he has become null at this point.

          1. Tiger says

        1. pmbalele says

          Tiger or Tigress, your brain has been damaged by Repubs and TPs. Look what they are doing – trying to dissuade President Obama from nominating a new Justice after Repubs and TPs murdered Scalia. You as a female should leave TPs and Repubs alone. They do not count you as a regular person with regular brain. They dictate to you what you should do with your body or self. They think you’re intellectually inferior to them as males. Enjoy life like me during the remaining time with President Obama. I have enjoyed life for the last 7 years. Now gas prices are $1 gal. I can afford a huge 8 cylinder Lincoln Navigator; eat in restaurants and leave big tips; Bin Laden, Yemen guy and Benghazi moron are out of commission. People are again working and buying houses.

          1. Tiger says

            Alas me thinks thou art so regressive
            Thou art not progressive
            Thou art depressing
            Thou art obsessing
            Hillary is a worthless crook
            A vote for her and our goose is cooked.

          2. pmbalele says

            You heard me little girl. I could be your grandfather as I see your face. So listen to me. I have seen and heard a lot about Repubs and TPs.

          3. Tiger says

            I am not a little girl and that is my face the picture taken two years ago. I am 69, worn many hats in my life and served in two wars. Raised by POW and I would not listen to you if we were the only two people on an island.

            I have good genes that just keep me young.

          4. TheBlues says

            You haven’t seen crap. I am 72 and have seen it all. Progressives, socialists/communists.

          5. pmbalele says

            Just curious -Do women really feel pretty when they have such oversize two things on their chests? Are they not too heavy to carry or run with.

          6. Tiger says

            What an odd question. Personally I have never had any problems controlling mine and run just fine.

            I don’t think oversized breasts make a woman pretty but most men will date a gorilla if it has double or triple D’s.

          7. pmbalele says

            I was just curious. I would never dare ask my wife. She may slap me for that question. Husband abuse.

          8. Tiger says

            Too funny. I will say this a woman with natural DD or DDD will be carrying them on her knees when she grows older, not a pretty sight. I am an RN close to 30 years I know.

            Now if silicone then will be gorgeous for a lifetime but that costs huge bucks. We are talking over 6,000 dollars.

          9. pmbalele says

            I forgot you’re a woman; and therefore do not look at women with such big ones. Some may burst out one of these days. Further have you noticed women tend to be nude than men. Look at Kardashians, Miley Cyrus etc. They love to be nude. Did you do the same when young?

          10. Tiger says

            Absolutely not and I was on the stage from age 5 to 21 and more. I am in full agreement until the day all women respect themselves, stop running their backsides up and down poles, stop lap dancing, stripping, prostituting themselves, posing half naked and going naked in movies all women get punished and disrespected.

            Sluts are born seen it too many times.

          11. TheBlues says

            You are nothing more than a socialist who wants gov’t to take over all industry. Go to North Korea and see how the head socialist/communist operates.

          12. pmbalele says

            The truth is I hate socialism and communism. Once you have these two philosophies, you’re sure will generate lazy people like Repubs and TPs. On the other hand I hate unmonitored capitalism. This is because capitalists tend to forget they have obligation to the people they sell products and service to.

        Another drone. Do you idiots all live beneath the same bridge?

    6. usathoughts says

      It is good thing the rank & file democrat does not really understand what a “Progressive” is. President Woodrow Wilson was its champion. Basically it amounts to an elite all Whites club. Blacks & Hispanics need not apply.

      I think “Progressive Policy was behind LBJs “Great Society” idea. That was to put the Blacks back on the plantation. In this case known as Ghettos. Think about it. It sequestered a large part of the Black population. Broke up families – required due to Welfare rules. Made the women & children dependent on the Federal Government. Have them self identify as “Blacks” instead of African Americans or Negroes, hence separating them from Main Street America. Promoting Abortion. Putting in place programs like “Affirmative Action” that tells the Blacks they are inferior. Destroy any semblance of education. The list goes on…

      Hillary Clinton brags about being a Progressive. Heaven help the Blacks & Hispanics. It is she who is the racist queen. I would bet LBJ is her favorite President. If from Texas and over 60 you know what Johnson thought about Blacks and Latinos.

      Was thinking Obama and the Internet is responsible for bringing Trump to prominence. The so called Establishment can no longer hide.

      1. Tiger says

        Like everything else they have turned around they have turned around Progressives along with what once were Liberals. All to the Dark Side and I do mean Dark.

        Yes I know what LBJ did, I was eighteen when Kennedy shot and my mother and father thought LBJ crude and vulgar and not presidential material. Yes there are recordings one can find on the net where LBJ caught on tape talking about the N’s and just give them stuff and they will vote Democrat forever.

        The thing about Trump that bothers me is again, last night and I had to turn it off infuriated me so, praised PP and then has the audacity to say he is Pro-Life. I watched everyone of those video on PP and listened to the entire first and only Congressional Investigation into their finances. They have a PAC that supports Democrats only and 11 of the people on the Investigative Committee were recipients of that money. He doesn’t have a clue that it was discovered for every PP clinic there are 15 other free clinics that do offer real women’s health screenings, PP lied. They make the bulk of their money off abortions and selling body parts. They are worldwide and in every prison.

        Trump sounds like a man of the people, he is saying what must be said, if he gets into office he better deliver because he isn’t Black and he would have no friends in Congress.

        1. usathoughts says

          My support for Trump is based solely on Financial & Economic reasons. i do not know if he can help in turning this situation around as it is worldwide. However, I do believe he will try.

          I know his business depends upon the health of Main Street America. Should he fail his business is sure to fail – it is a 10 billion dollar incentive.

          I also know on a personal & business basis that political business as usual these past 45 years have been an abject failure.

          On Social issues I am to the right of Attila the Hun. Socialism represents a disease to me as it can only lead to pestilence & perdition. How many tens of million must lie in the dirt before this is recognized.

          p.s. Read the article you presented. Every Socialist on the planet should be forced to read it.

          1. Tiger says

            Indeed you are right on.

            I never present an article without reading it first. Although some of them are not conducive totally to my intent but basically in tow.

          2. figmo says

            Like Margaret Thatcher said “the trouble with socialism is that sooner or later you run out of other peoples’ money” Taking from each according to their ability and giving to each according to their need gets old fast for the people of ability. In her book “Atlas Shrugged” Ayn Rand portrayed just such a society where the people of ability got tired of the nonsense and disappeared leaving the government in a mess because the system broke down and quit working. This book was written many years ago and showed considerable foresight. Who killed John Galt?

      2. Tiger says

        Here is an article on LBJ saying he would have those N voting Democrat for the next 200 years.

          It would appear that his words came true. But LBJ wasn’t for whites either, only the rich and crooked.

            He was utter scum and far as I am concerned killed Kennedy.

    2. 1ColtonDelaney643 says

      I wonder if Bernie’s followers would like to share their wealth. what if they had to share their A grades in college with all the F students, that way everyone would get a C..no one would fail. Its not fair that A students get all the A’s when the F students only get F’s. Cant you see how freaken stupid that is? Or do I need to break it down even more? The A students signify the rich and the F students signify the poor.

      1. Reality Check says

        Break it down even more?

        how about even you try talking about the same subject?

        who’s wealth are you worried about getting spread?

        1. 1ColtonDelaney643 says

          Bernie sanders thinks its unfair that the wealthy have all the wealth and the poor don’t have any money, your posts seem to indicate that you like Bernie sanders whose platform as a socialist is to share the wealth. So I just posted to you how freaken stupid that is. still havin trouble?

          1. Reality Check says

            “Bernie sanders thinks its unfair that the wealthy have all the wealth”

            He does not say that at all.
            Maybe you can link me to him saying that?

            what he DOES SAY is that the rich pay less than 15% in taxes while you and I pay 25% in taxes.
            THAT is the unfair part and needs to stop.

            sure we are going to hike the rate on those that rake it in
            but I think after you clear your first 10 million you can afford to take a hike.
            or go live in Somalia.

            does the low info human know that during the GREAT Reagan years the tax rate was still over 50% for the rich?
            hmmmm?

            He does say, he’s in favor of a 90% tax and free college. Just who will pay for it?

          5. Reality Check says

            do you have a working brain?

            the top tax rate in SOCIALIST EU is 60, so moron of the right, I doubt Bernie has said it was going to be 90.

            secondly low info con, the college is paid for by a tax on stock speculation/trading
            which will easily pay for it and leave change for the national debt.

          6. Reality Check says

            Oh, and as for taxes
            In an analysis released today, the Tax Foundation, an independent tax policy research organization, found that Sanders’ plan would lead to 10.56% lower after-tax income for all taxpayers, and a 17.91% lower after-tax income for the wealthiest Americans. When accounting for reduced GDP, taxpayers would see their after-tax incomes fall by 12.84% on average, the report said.

            http://time.com/4194179/bernie-sanders-tax-plan/

            lets see you prove something.

          7. Reality Check says

            so if the Trump platform (at least today/recently) is THIS:
            SAVE SS
            SAVE Medicare
            TAX the rich
            TAX imports
            UNIVERSAL HC
            kill the TPP
            let Muslims fight ISIS

            and the Bernie platform is THIS:
            SAVE SS
            SAVE Medicare
            TAX the rich
            TAX imports
            UNIVERSAL HC
            kill the TPP
            let Muslims fight ISIS

            tell me again the big difference?

          8. Reality Check says

            stupid would be you who thinks Bernie is a Socialist.

            there is no such thing as a “socialist” Country silly con.

            Democratic Socialist is the closest and WE are already there.
            you are just brainwashed into thinking otherwise.

            Social Security is Democratic Socialism.
            Medicare is Democratic Socialism.
            Medicaid is Democratic Socialism
            Post Office are Democratic Socialism. (and in the Constitution)
            The US highway system is Democratic Socialism (and in the Constitution)
            our electric grid is Democratic Socialism
            Public Utilities are Democratic Socialism

            shall I continue?
            maybe break it down for you into simpler examples?

      2. Billy says

        Great point. This is exactly what is wrong with our country, people like Noam Chomsky “teaching” our children his line of nonsense BS. Our public education system and institutions of “so-called” Higher Learning are filled with these idiots pumping their Socialist, anti-God, anti-American garbage into the heads of our young.

  5. Rick Raponi says

    Chomsky is most likely a democrat. Democrats will ( generally ) only vote democrat and this is how all the democrats that I know have put it. Republicans will often go against the grain and vote who they think is the best candidate. I would rather see Trump than Hillary or Sanders , but then I always vote businessmen/women over lawyers or organizers.
    Businessmen/women know the value of a dollar and it is not an endless pile. If they do not know the value of a dollar they are rarely in business long!

      CHomsky is nothing less than a left winger and Communist in the tradition of Stalin and Castro.

  7. Dave says

    Total BS. Societal Breakdown, is the fault of progressives who have blurred the lines between being a good guy and being a bad guy. Then they attack anyone who stands up for truth, justice, and the American way. The progressives who have hijacked the educational system in order to indoctrinate students to see capitalism and democracy as evil even within the most generous nation which has ever existed. Not just the government, but the people. They have led people to believe that patriotism is evil, and White people all profited from slavery whether they were poor or not, and whether they owned a slave or not. (They forget that many White people came to this country as “indentured servants who were never able to work their way to completing their sentences. There were Irish who actually arrived as slaves. White merchant sailors were forcibly removed from ships and impressed into the British navy. Today we have a dynasty of liars called the Clintons and the Obamas, and the progressives hold them up as shining examples of the way we should all be. We have a progressive president who is one of the nations leading racist and bigots. This guy is just another wacko leftist.

  9. Normando782 says

    Frustration and arrogance by Obama has been very devisive. Obama has been the precurser for expanding welfare instead of trying to expand desire to improve oneself. His arrogance and lack of leadership when leadership was required has helped put the world in a very precarious state by allowing tyranny to flourish and abandoning allies to the point where they do not trust America and where many Americans do not trust their president. There are better qualified candidates than Trump in the GOP but emotion seems to run higher than thoughtful thinking. The best candidate the GOP had to offer will unfortunately not be the winning candidate. Americans have once again missed the boat .

  11. luckyg53 says

    Anyone that believes that an old hippie like Bernie sanders would make a good president is still riding high on LSD from the 60’s. The rise of Trump lies in the deceit and treachery of the Democrats headed up by Reid, Pelosi, and Obama. Dire straits that we are now in can be traced back to Wilson days. Don’t think that Chomsky is a fool, just listen to him for a minute and you will believe otherwise.

    1. AKLady2015 says

      Elect Trump and see the 5th Reich materialize before your very eyes.

    2. headonstraight says

      The rise of Trump lies in the dumbing down of the American electorate–or at least that ultra-conservative know-nothing, gullible and naive sector of it that opts to support the raving buffoon!

  15. Pam Dunn says

    Chomsky is nothing more than a moronic left winger TURD and IDIOT ; His “history” book is the biggest piece of bullshyte and garbage ever printed and should be banned from any and ALL universities and schools.

    1. AKLady2015 says

      Infantile foul language.
      So not impressive.

      1. RobertNorwood says

        Neither are you. Pam is right – Chomsky is a left wing pinhead whose given the crimes of Marxism a pass while eating at one of the few countries that wouldn’t make him rot in a cell. He’s a stupid pig.

    2. headonstraight says

      Oh? Do we have an advocate of book banning here. Ever heard of the First Amendment, Pam Dumb?

      1. RobertNorwood says

        Nothing wrong with simply restricting it to the book buying public – it doesn’t need to be part of a school’s curriculum anymore, say, than the Koran. Chomsky for one example treated as a hero Hugo Chavez, a dictator and a murderer who destroyed Venezuela’s economy with Marxist nonsense. Truth is the Marxists were doing what they always do – ripping off the people and living high.

      2. Cheryl Detar says

        headonstraight, Probably not a good name for you. As an educator, I will tell you, plenty of books have been banned from schools.

      3. John E Strom Jr. says

        headonstraight, the First Amendment is government’s promise to us. Not the reverse. Anyone can burn any book they choose to burn. The government may not infringe upon OUR rights under the First Amendment

        1. headonstraight says

          First, banning and burning are not the same thing. Secondly, when Pam Dumb advocates removal of Chomsky’s books from public (government) libraries (and her “ALL” includes these), she is advocating government censorship.

          A private individual has the right to burn any book he/she chooses, provided he/she is the book’s owner, just as a private individual has a right to burn the American flag. In the latter case, who do you suppose is likely to rise up to interfere with the flag burner’s First Amendment rights? Not Noam Chomsky; not any “liberal”; but plenty of bogus patriots in the conservative sector. Ain’t you heard ’em? “Burn this flag and I’ll burn you.”

          How about it, Strom, Jr.? Do you believe the First Amendment includes the right to burn the flag?

    3. John E Strom Jr. says

      Pam, sadly virtually all universities and schools are havens of left wing idiots LIKE Chomsky.

  16. MAHB001 says

    The sign that one has been subject to ideologically subversion is that they can not acknowledge anything that goes against their liberal ideology. For Norm to think that there was a break down of our society due to “neoliberalsim” is the ultimate failure to recognize a multitude of facts placed directly in front of him.

    And then to go on and deny that 0-bama and the lefts politicies are the reason “People feel isolated, helpless, victim of powerful forces that they do not understand and cannot influence.”

    Norm Chomsky is a demoralized cupcake… No different than Reality Check, or any other liberal troll.

    1. AKLady2015 says

      Leftist, rightist, communist…ist, ist, ist —

      How about some reality?

      How about two unecessary wars?
      How about the trillions of unecessary war debt.
      How about 50 + years of future debt from those unecessary wars.
      .
      Oh, right that was a Republican idea, not Obama.

      1. Flippy Hambone says

        How about shut your pie hole

      2. RobertNorwood says

        Reality – you wouldn’t know it if it came in the form of a piano dropped from ten stories above. You make statements with a patina of generalised facts that we all know about then do what liberals do – ignore that every truth, lie, or fact has a history requiring a complex understanding.

      3. MAHB001 says

        How about the Constitution?
        How about personal liberties?
        How about justice for all?
        How about a fiscally responsible Government?
        How about personal responsibilities?
        All abandoned by the left.

        Those “unnecessary” wars (I am not convinced that they were unnecessary) are NOT the fault of the Republicans alone. How about YOU standing up and taking some responsibility as well?

        To blame the trillions in debt on the Right is just plane insane.
        To blame the 50+ years of future debt on the wars is also insane.

        Oh, that is right, you are one of the demoralized cupcakes as well.

    2. headonstraight says

      Al least spell the man’s name correctly if you insist on delivering your usual wingnut diatribe.

      1. MAHB001 says

        Numb Clombsky?? or the 0-bama? or Reality Chuck? or headupass?

        All Communists seem the same to me

  17. AKLady2015 says

    Elect Trump and see the 5th Reich materialize before your very eyes.

    1. RobertNorwood says

      What happened to the Fourth? Jeezus lady – you can’t even keep count of your Reichs. But I can understand – you’ve been distracted by the glow of socialism ever since it failed world wide and decided to try again here.

    Trump Is Not A Liberal or Conservative, He’s A Pragmatist
    By Mychal Massie on January 19, 2016.

    We recently enjoyed a belated holiday dinner with friends at the home of other friends. The dinner conversation was jocund, ranging from discussions about antique glass and china to theology and politics. At one point reference was made to Donald Trump being a conservative to which I responded that Trump is not a conservative.

    I said that I neither view nor do I believe Trump views himself as a conservative. I stated it was my opinion that Trump is a pragmatist. He sees a problem and understands it must be fixed. He doesn’t see the problem as liberal or conservative, he sees it only as a problem. That is a quality that should be admired and applauded, not condemned. But I get ahead of myself.

    Viewing problems from a liberal perspective has resulted in the creation of more problems, more entitlement programs, more victims, more government, more political correctness, and more attacks on the working class in all economic strata.

    Viewing things according to the so-called Republican conservative perspective has brought continued spending, globalism to the detriment of American interests and well being, denial of what the real problems are, weak, ineffective, milquetoast, leadership that amounts to Barney Fife Deputy Sheriff – appeasement oriented and afraid of its own shadow. In brief, it has brought liberal ideology with a pachyderm as a mascot juxtaposed to the ass of the Democrat Party.

    Immigration isn’t a Republican problem – it isn’t a liberal problem – it is a problem that threatens the very fabric and infrastructure of America. It demands a pragmatic approach not an approach that is intended to appease one group or another.

    The impending collapse of the economy isn’t a liberal or conservative problem, it is an American problem. That said, until it is viewed as a problem that demands a common sense approach to resolution, it will never be fixed because the Democrats and Republicans know only one way to fix things and the longevity of their impracticality has proven to have no lasting effect. Successful businessmen like Donald Trump find ways to make things work, they do not promise to accommodate.

    Trump uniquely understands that China’s manipulation of currency is not a Republican problem or a Democrat problem. It is a problem that threatens our financial stability and he understands the proper balance needed to fix it. Here again successful businessmen like Trump who have weathered the changing tides of economic reality understand what is necessary to make business work and they, unlike both sides of the political aisle, know that if something doesn’t work you don’t continue trying to make it work hoping that at some point it will.

    As a pragmatist Donald Trump hasn’t made wild pie-in-the-sky promises of a cell phone in every pocket, free college tuition, and a $15 hour minimum wage for working the drive-through at Carl’s Hamburgers.

    I argue that America needs pragmatists because pragmatists see a problem and find ways to fix them. They do not see a problem and compound it by creating more problems.

    You may not like Donald Trump, but I suspect that the reason people do not like him is because:

    1) he is antithetical to the “good old boy” method of brokering backroom deals that fatten the coffers of politicians;

    2) they are unaccustomed to hearing a candidate speak who is unencumbered by the financial shackles of those who own them vis-a`-vis donations;

    3) he is someone who is free of idiomatic political ideology; and

    4) he is someone who understands that it takes more than hollow promises and political correctness to make America great again.

    Listening to Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders talk about fixing America is like listening to two lunatics trying to “out crazy” one another. Jeb Bush andMarco Rubio are owned lock, stock, and barrel by the bankers, corporations, and big dollar donors funding their campaigns. Bush can deny it but common sense tells anyone willing to face facts that people don’t give tens of millions without expecting something in return.

    We have had Democrats and Republican ideologues and what has it brought us? Are we better off today or worse off? Has it happened overnight or has it been a steady decline brought on by both parties?

    I submit that a pragmatist might be just what America needs right now. And as I said earlier, a pragmatist sees a problem and understands that the solution to fix same is not about a party, but a willingness and boldness to get it done.

    People are quick to confuse and despise confidence as arrogance, but that is common amongst those who have never accomplished anything in their lives and who have always played it safe not willing to risk failure.

    1. RobertNorwood says

      That’s why I like Trump. I may identify as a Conservative but in truth I have liberal views in certain well chosen areas. I’m also a Christian, I oppose abortion but from the practical side understands we cannot completely take it away and send women back to the dark days of back room abortions. I understand the history of making certain things illegal only creates an industry the law cannot control. Illegal immigrants, migrant workers, are essential to certain industries whether we like it or not. Try bending over in a California field for 8 hours picking lettuce or pay five times more than that lettuce usually costs. The real problem is government’s failure to have a practical accountable system for guest workers coupled with an antiquated, outdated, immigration system.
      If Trump thinks independently,chooses good ideas, ideas that work, where ever they come from then so be it. Neither liberal nor conservative – common sense practical pragmatism.
      It’s like with the liberal left as Thomas Sowell puts it we should not be surprised to find liberals inhabit institutions where ideas do not have to work to survive.

    Norm is just another liberal who loves socialism or Hillary. There is no difference between the two. Ask the DNC chairwoman who was asked what the difference was between socialists and democrats. She didn’t have an answer. Go Trump! Purge DC

      Prosecute Hillary!

  21. Robalou01 says

    I used to work in a book store. We filed Chomsky next to the communist manifesto.

  22. abobinmn says

    Noam the old fool hasn’t got a clue.

  23. Edward A Rhodes Rhodes says

    Actually it is Chomsky who epitimizes the ideological failure of “elite thought leaders”. Chomsky BELIEVES (exactly like his ilk) he’s far far better than the rest of us stupid fools. The Chomsky’s got us Obutt. Really good job by the geniuses!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. Flippy Hambone says

    “Liberalism” predictably gave us societal breakdown.

  25. NovelDog says

    They want to paint us as red necks and stupid louts. Why? Because we will not bow down to them and kiss their feet and take their orders. They want us black, white, or what ever color, to be their docile slaves. Trump has offered us hope…now they want to take away this last vestige of hope. So put on those Shackles and Chains and behave or they will get the whip out…..the IRS…. to audit your taxes the way they are currently dong to Donald J Trump. Meanwhile they accuse him of some imaginary impropriety knowing he can not refute it until they release his taxes so he can present them to the public. Dirty rats aren’t they?

  26. HankBar says

    Noam needs to go back one more step. Liberal, Socialist policies = Societal Breakdown = Trump.
    People like Chomsky always stop short of the truth because they start stepping on their own toes.
    Can’t see the Forrest for the trees– Well Chomsky and others like him can’t see the Communist for the Socialist.

    1. Kent2012 says

      headonstraightuphisazz thinks that noam is a Real American instead of a commie snake turd like his messiah, kenyan boyo…

      1. Deby says

        headuphisass is a complete moron, so that is not surprising.

    2. Flippy Hambone says

      He also calls conservatives like Reagan neoliberals – right is left, up is down,

      A thinly veiled attempt to dodge accountability for the abject failure of liberal prescriptions from dregs like Chomsky (a hero to the likes of Kerry, Clinton, et al.)

    How refreshing can it be? A commie clown telling Real Americans that we are the cause of the chaos that is going on in America today…got news for you you ahole because most Americans are decent and care about others jerks like you can live without fearing that you will be gutted on the way to the grocery store and the commies in N Korea, Vietnam, chinkee ville and roosha live without hearing that whooshing sound and seeing mushroom clouds rising above their military installations….it is also the reason that the USA is being ridiculed on the world stage…hope that you join uncle joe and mao real soon….

  28. headonstraight says

    One does not need the sophisticated analysis of a Noam Chomsky to cringe at the dire prospect of a Donald Trump in the White House. This Nation would become a laughingstock before the entire world should such a red-faced, blithering, brawling, profane lout become our chief executive.

    1. Flippy Hambone says

      “sophisticated analysis”

      HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

      1. headonstraight says

        Typical ignoramus reply there, Flippy. You and your gullible naive ilk possess about 1/1,000,000,000,000,000th of the brain cells of a Noam Chomsky.

        1. Flippy Hambone says

          If Chomsky had any brain cells left he would be an engineering professor and not a douchebag (like you).

  29. RobertNorwood says

    The unbalanced left’s central doctrine depends upon the corrosion of societal values and culture. The left which, once you drill down, is rooted in Communism; fomenting discontent, corruption, and corrosion from within its host. Artists like Chomsky, educators, students, the young are attracted by the left’s cover stories of opposing oppression, fighting for societal justice – what normal person would not but, these are simply tag lines, lies. The lies are accepted by liberals for example, in the same fashion German liberals believed they could control Hitler – a very good liar. The hard fact is this, no leftist run country has ever dispensed justice or its oft touted promise of paradise. They line you up, give you two choices – the wall or social slavery. In the paradise of the left everyone is equally poor unless they work for the government.

    1. Flippy Hambone says

      For all the reasons you stated (and more), the Rule of Law is anathema to the left, that’s why Obama and the Left have been doing their best to break it – including whacking Scalia.

  30. JIM DALLY says

    the Washington cartel is worried that TRUMP will be president as it will undermine all the problems of a cartel and those who went to Washington to make change for the better will prevail not the lifers who have drained washington

  31. jreb57 says

    The breakdown of our society began in the sixties, not the eighties and it was a belief that fundamental rights included items such as food, housing, and medical care; things that most people have traditionally worked for. Reagan reversed some of that, but not enough.

  32. HankBar says

    Now you can see why the so called Progressives wanted to take the teaching of real history and civics out of the schools. If the young don’t know what Socialism and Communism really are, and the abject failures of these systems of government it is easier to convince them that they are good for a society.

  33. welshcorgi says

    I blame it on senility. Chomsky’s, not mine.

  34. Flippy Hambone says

    Chomsky and those like him should be tarred, feathered and run out of town on a rail.

  35. watchman48 says

    The “breakdown of USA and this society” began at least in the 1940s or so when the liberal fought for the teaching of evolution in our public schools… Since then there has been a number of major mistakes made by the liberals forcing the removal of prayer from public schools, embracing the abominations of homosexuality, abortion and the rejection of God’s Holy WORD…
    The communist and socialist have been working to destroy capitalism for at least 75 years or more and the ignorance of the vast major of Americans, the liberals are buying into what these evil communist and socialist are saying for lack of education.

    Mr. Trump made the comment that he was a great Christian…. No true Christian would have ever said that of himself. I have absolutely no doubts that Mr. Trump to be extremely obnoxious, arrogant, prideful, self-centered and worse than all of that extremely self-righteous, definitely a combination that we do not need in the White House nor in a man who converses with other world leaders…. We have all these attributes in the current president now and look what has happene…d to us in the past 7 years…. United States has never been hated more than we are today.

    Mr. Trump has even bragged how he has contributed to both party and their politicians in hope to gain favor to get what he wanted from them…
    It is easy for me to see that Mr. Trump is no born again Christian, therefore although Trump would make a much better president than Hillary I could never vote for him as president. I will not vote for the lesser of two evils.
    Whereas, I find humility and humbleness in Dr. Carson, a man that knows he needs divine guidance for godly wisdom, a man that doesn’t seek power to rule over others but a man who seeks the power to help guide a nation and it’s people back to the knowledge of the Almighty God, Creator of all that is good.

  36. John E Strom Jr. says

    Noam Chomsky is a leftist Jew – like Bernie Sanders. That he would vote for Hillary Clinton “over any” Republican tells how vile and corrupt HE IS. She is THE MOST corrupt female ever and probably the most corrupt politician ever – but she has some competition from rapist husband, Bill, and Obama.

  37. Bob Stewart says

    Liberal democrats and political correctness have given us Donald Trump. Oh, and add a stupid republican congress that cares more about reelection than doing what is needed to preserve the constitution and the American way of life.

  38. Larry Viator says

    a break down in society or is americans finally getting tired of the establishment in washington screwing this country up across the board while they grease their pockets. what you fail to mention is how the establishment in washington has built a nest egg and when america is in the crapper they jump ship to greener grass like drowning rats do. that should not be allowed.

    1. RobertNorwood says

      Viator – an old name, Traveler, One who Travels.

      1. Larry Viator says

        possibly , from spain to france then to nova scotia and from there to louisiana a couple hundred years ago. maybe before that we came from russia to spain?

        1. RobertNorwood says

          I knew a Viator from Louisiana and found an old headstone in cemetery up around Cape Ann Mass. overlooking the Atlantic. Just said Viator, nothing else. Gotta believe there’s some story there.

          1. Larry Viator says

            may have some that drifted up north but most of the viators are kin some where down the line and can trace back to louisiana and then to spain. both my grandparents were viators before they married so im kin to most i reckon.

          2. RobertNorwood says

            Well, I’ve always thought it was a cool name. You don’t come across it every day, up North anyways.

  40. evoval says

    Wrong Chumpsky. Being sick and tired of being sick and tired of the same old same old anti American douche bag lying, lawless oath breaking betraying sell out politicians raping and pillaging gave us Trump.

  41. Leonard Mintz says

    He has it backwards. Social breakdown gave us Obama!

  42. John Topper says

    But the problem is, The market isn’t free! We don’t have free trade agreements…oh, we say we do, but they are so blatantly biased against us I’ll bet we barely break even on them. Look at the trade with China, B I L L I O N S of dollars…how many exports TO China? and the Trade Bank, not too good for us, good for everyone else. …as far a the comments below, you guy need some weed!

  43. RobertNorwood says

    “No one can dismiss Chomsky as an idiot” I can, but then that’s me… “he has a very twisted view of America…often called the country a terrorist state” yes, all while ideologically supporting Hugo Chavez and his terror in Venezuela; trashing the US, the West, etc. has been a full time occupation with this piece of schit.

  44. Austinniceguy says

    Idiots like Noam Chumpsky like to come across as if they, and only they, understand why things like this happen. It’s called rationalization. My reasons for liking Trump may not agree with or, appeal to anyone else and I’m fine with that. The base of my choice is that time and again I voted within my party and time and again they ended up betraying me with more lies. OlBluegums lied outright about a great many things but mostly AFTER he was elected. The GOP RINO’s campaigned on little but lies. Now they think that smear campaigns and tactics are going to topple Trump but, the writing IS on the wall. Cruz MIGHT take Texas but, after that it will be a VERY steep hill for everyone BUT Trump. Nope, “societal breakdown” had nothing to do with this, it was republican breakdown that created this vacuum.

  45. yzwisey says

    Cruz 2016.. liberals/ progressives have no one to blame for Trump except themselves.

    1. AmericanBelle1 says

      Cruz is toast. He HAS to win his home state of Texas, and that’s simply not going to happen. It’s a 50/20 state, which means the winner has to win by no less than 50% in order to get the bulk of the delegates (155 at stake!!!); otherwise, anything under 50% and those delegates are divvied up proportionately. The current polling puts Cruz at 38%, Trump at 27% and I’m positive that number is going to change now that Chris Christie is in Texas with Trump and just endorsed him! Cruz couldn’t get 50% before; he sure as heck isn’t going to get it with Christie backing Trump!

      1. yzwisey says

        You must not be familiar withTexas politics.. Having Christie there is more of a hinderance.

        1. yzwisey says

          If Cruz wins I am happy. If Trump wins well I’m glad about that too. If Rubio wins not so much and will be dem-lite.

  46. fred says

    Mr Trump is an American citizen that loves his country and doesn’t want to destroy it’s unique place in a world of socialists and Communists, like Chomsky for example! An out of control Federal government comprised of an illegal alien criminal posing as a FAKE potus, and criminals from top to bottom in both houses of Congress and out of control FED, IRS, SCOTUS, and so many other agencies new and old, and then the real full time criminals with no shame for how they manipulate our lives, the Lobbyist scourge that must be made illegal, so every citizen has access no matter his/her economic situation! That is why so many people like Mr Trump’s message! Wake up and get real, you bunch of loser, do-nothing Journalists!

  47. walt says

    The societal breakdown has come about thru greed of both socialist and capitalists that have no morals. There is no management now because the ideology of both political systems are gaming America for all the money and power they can get. Mr. Trump represents the gamed, he is our Captain out of this storm. That is why this voter supports, Donald Trump for President! ??

  48. disqus_tpc8waQI76 says

    one thing i would like to point out all politics are local you all need to not forget that fact. Yes we have national campaigns every four years senate campaigns every 6 years and congressional every 2 years then local stuff. But these people start locally that’s why all politics are local. We need to get the lawyers and the professional politicians out at the local level. We need regular people in office that will listen to people and we need to stay awake as a people this crap didn’t happen in a vacuum. We let it happen with give me give me. Now just one thing i want to point out for you all and this is sooo true it scares the hell out of me. If you have noted and i have all these kids are voting for Bernie Sanders look at what we have brought up these kids are socialist. This is what our schools are turning the kids into. This has to stop or this is all in vain they are brain washing the kids and it is intentional this is what the globalist want

    1. jaybird says

      A lot of how children think is because of the way they are brought up, too many children are without direction in their life.

      1. AmericanBelle1 says

        That was stripped from them in 1961 when prayer was banned from school. Once we kicked God out of our arena, we also kicked out morality and personal fulfillment. Humanity needs some higher authority to look to for guidance. That’s been stripped away and left to the masses to make it up as they go. Obviously, they’ve made up a whole new set of immoral, unguided, undisciplined rules that don’t give any meaning to life. If you answer to yourself, you can do whatever you please without recourse because there’s no authority to tell you otherwise. Look around you now and see it all in action. We kill babies and give due process to terrorists. Our culture is lost, as is our society.

        1. jaybird says

          Children need to learn from their parents first and then what happens in other settings will have little effect on them. My 2 children were born in the 60’s and what changes there were at school did not change them and then when they were in their teens I went through a divorce and they still stayed the same. Not saying they did not try stuff and played us against each other but it did not work. We were strong disciplinarians because that was the way we were raised and that is the way they raised my grandchildren and now my great grandchildren are being raised that way. I guess back in the 70’s the parents fell down in parenting.

    2. AmericanBelle1 says

      Our kids have been propagandized for decades into liberalthink. We have two generations of entitled spoiled brats who’ve been taught capitalism sucks. They haven’t been taught a damn thing about socialism other than it provides equality (but they aren’t taught that that equality simply means everyone will be equally miserable!!!)

      But let them have their temporary “fun” in hootin’ up the Bern, because even if he did win the nomination, there are just far too many level-headed Americans who lived through the cold war who will never, ever vote for a socialist!

  49. hrandym says

    Noam Chomsky helped give us societal breakdown, and he IS an idiot. There, I just said it. Now you can’t that no one can call Noam an idiot.

  50. James Biancone says

    If a candidate is against the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, Democracy / Republic, and capitalism, by definition they are In/Anti American. IE; Sanders, Hillary, and Hussein Obama. Guilt by association. If you support that candidate, you are un American by Choice!

  51. DaleBret says

    Actually, I can dismiss Chomsky as an idiot. He occasionally says something sensible but he has been an idiot for the last 50 years, writing with great conviction, distorted facts, and little understanding of his topic.

    1. AmericanBelle1 says

      He was a visiting professor while I was at university and even in my youth, knew this guy was a chump. I passed on his course, and quite glad that I did.

  52. anAmericanByChoice says

    Noam C. is a wrong. The societal collapse he speaks of as having started in the 1980s, started way earlier, and in part thanks to the likes of FDR and disastrous socialist practices. Mr. NC should move to a communist country, where the all powerful government controls most everything and everyone. Free markets and capitalism are not the problem; cronyism is the problem, and cronyism sits well with fascists, socialists and communists alike. That Mr. NC envisions Sanders or Hillary Clinton as the best choice for the presidency, says it all. When Mr. NC speaks of fear and “People feel[ing] isolated, helpless, victim[s] of powerful forces that they do not understand and cannot influence[,]” he is speaking of America under the likes of Obama, the Clintons, the Bushes, etc. But more of the same is not going to heal America. Trump may not have what it takes to be the next POTUS, but heck, Americans are fed up, and that is why they are gravitating to Mr. Trump. He is echoing their frustration, the “F*** you all!” general feeling of a population sick and tired of corrupt politicians, cronyism, an overreaching government and, yes, a sense of helplessness. Mr. Chomsky, do us all a favor, pack and leave; Cuba is just a stone throw away, China, North Korea, Russia, they will all welcome you, I am sure. Just go and spare us your diatribes and your communist cr@p! And I beg to disagree with the author of the article when he says that “No one can dismiss Chomsky as an idiot” – oh yes one can, because that is what he is. Just because one can reason and regurgitate ideas and theories about this and that it does not mean one is not an idiot. Chomsky clearly is.

    1. AmericanBelle1 says

      Update: Trump has done it again…after last night’s debate, today was supposed to belong to Marco Rubio. But alas, right there in the heartland of Cruz’ home, Chris Christie endorsed Donald Trump. Everyone has already forgotten about last night’s debate!

      TRUMP 2016!

  53. jackhy says

    Chomsky is correct on our “societal breakdown”, but that’s not the Republican’s fault. It’s the runaway /giveaway Dems policies as is the balooning Federal Gov’t. and our unpayable National Debt.

  54. junkmailbin says

    Chumpsky does not look like he has missed any meals or is homeless doe to capitalism. He looks like a fat cat with a different lable

  55. alexwipf says

    Chomsky, as always, is on the mark. I know neoliberals, free market capitalists, small or no government enthusiasts, like the author of this piece think, and in a way pray that all the chaos in our society has been caused by the usual suspects…….The societal villans you mention, blacks on welfare, Hollywood movies, and woman wanting to be treated more fairly, but I don’t think so. If anything, neolibralism has been given a full steam ahead chance to prove it’s viability. Sorry, Charlie tuna, ( to quote an old commercial) the philosophy created exactly what we got…..some people making out like bandits, others left in the rubble of the world economy. Blaming welfare is a joke. The money spent on mostly black single mother and at this point many poor white families as well, is a pittance of our national budget. Really, blaming the artists, even the Hollywood brand, who basically reflect what they see or fear, weaving that into a movie, whose capitalist purpose is to make money. They are just part of the free market capitalistic system…and woman are the problem. Your mother and sisters would be ashamed of you. Why don’t you ask them if they feel woman are given a fair shot, you might be suprised at what their experience has been. The true villan is your hero, free market capitalism……it doesn’t work….not without controlls. What’s wrong with privitizing governmental functions? Private companies are in the business of making money as their primary goal not servicing the public……it doesn’t work……and look what has happened now corporate lobbyists are so powerful they overwhelm the legislative system. This is , indeed, a very serious and consequental election. Trump is a TV personality with a quick rejoinder for any thing you throw at him….he’s good at I improvising….so what? Bernie Sanders at lease knows what has worked in other parts of the world, but can he work with people with the mindset of this author? Hillary may be the best option. Only time will tell.
    ..

    1. Deby says

      pack your bags and move to Canada if you think you are so persecuted here libbie-you are a moron if you really think socialism WORKS-it does not-and here in America we will remain the land of the FREE –killary is a liar and is completely dishonest-not presidential material in the least-she wants big government and entitlements to remain, and could care less about We the People. That is a fact jack.

    2. AmericanBelle1 says

      I hope someday you’ll get that operation to remove the nose ring liberals are pulling you on…but it’ll cost you an arm and a leg (literally) because I’m sure you can’t afford the deductible to get you into the OR…give a big hoot and holla to your leftwing pals and their socialist medicine!

      FYI, a great deal of money is wasted on welfare recipients because liberals have destroyed our culture and we now live off government handouts. Incompetence helps, which is why our economy is busted and there are no jobs, bringing that welfare number up substantially…people who used to be able to take care of themselves no longer are able what with there being no jobs, no economy, and no where to go!

      You are definitely a product of the assbackwards education system liberals put together, considering you think socialism would work in America! Are you daff? You’re comparing apples and oranges, just like Bernie…it works in Sweden because they have less than 10 million people; the US has almost 320 million. But I’m wasting time with you since since you’ve already been wasted by liberal BS.

  56. Greg Hernandez says

    I have been hearing about this fools proclamations from the clouds for years and he still is talking through his non existent hat.The breakdown in society gave us almost 8 years of the worst administration in history OZERO. The rise of the socialist left has destroyed much of what is good in America. Their race baiting tactics have given us racist blacks and cowardly democraps apologizing for being white. These idiots are more xenophobic than the aryan nation,who are just as bad. I think Chomskys’ problem is the same as Karl Marxs’ was, an inability to work alongside others and a lack of social graces. I think Chomsky is so totally jealous of those who have parlayed their talents into monetary success that it has unhinged his mind.Like every other America hating lefty, he blames everyone else for his problems and because he hates America, capitalism and free thinking ( Not his brand of rigid orthodoxy ). Old Noam should have stayed in his parents basement , like Marx , and stop bothering people in the real world. Go away already.

    1. Deby says

      right ON! you are correct, and I hope Bernie moves into the basement with him-he is an OLD activist with absolutely nothing good in his background that would even remotely suggests he give a sh*&t about America or Americans for that matter–check out Bernie’s “credentials” which have led him to run for president-he was one pissed-off kid in college-protesting for co-habituation in dorms in a time when birth control was not heard of and illegitimate babies abounded-needless to say he was thrown out of more than one college since he apparently wasn’t there to learn a damn thing.-and now the whole world knows how ignorant he truly is-but the pc brainwashing currently happening in colleges is producing the know- nothing millennials he is targeting. this election to turn America around is way overdue!

      1. Greg Hernandez says

        You show that you have looked into this fools history. Just think of all the ” Voters ” who NEVER look into who they support. Ozero has been ” Occupying ” the oval office for 7 years and there are idiots who still do not know anything about him. I know a person who is all out for Hillary yet does not know or care that she was thrown off the watergate investigation for her lack of ethics. And this person didn’t care at all. Hillary will fight for us ! People used to go to school to GET an education, now they think they can teach those of us who have survived in the real world.

  57. Kitty Ayers says

    a vote for Rubio is a vote for the establishment and that is what we are fighting against

  58. paulrph1 says

    Exactly. How is that “change” thingy working out for you. Unless you have your head in the sand or other places not to mention one would be smart enough to realize it is a work in futility. But then we have the stupids that want to give us more of the same. They should move.

  59. Sgt. York says

    Here is one more socialist/communist backer of sanders. Just when we thought ovomit was on his way out this traitor with his so called big ol education comes along to push more communism. He needs to be put in a very special room with ovomit,hillbilly Clinton as well as sanders door closed sealed and forgotten. What is wanted now is a greater path to our freedoms,jobs and no illegals from Mexico or the Muslim countries.

  60. mossbergman says

    Neoliberalism” WTH not even try ~~ the growing progressives and their politically correct micoagressions on free speech and the Constitution . Noam Chomsky aligns with anarcho-syndicalism and libertarian socialism.~ what else would he say / he was exposed to far left politics through other members of the family, a number of whom were socialists involved in the International Ladies’ Garment Workers’ Union https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noam_Chomsky

  61. DrRGP says

    Noam Chomsky is as blind and biassed (doctrinaire) now as he was when I first studied him as an undergraduate in the 1960s. He hasn’t learned anything since then, but the rest of us have. Governments cannot effectively substitute themselves for free markets and individual decision making.

  62. Restituto Guzman Jr. says

    Noam is a leftist idiolog and nothing it’s going to change that, he is like a runaway train running on the left side of the track over the broken bridge of socialism.

  63. John Williams says

    This is standard liberal drivel, they label you with whatever term they think you will cower from and they will look in the mirror to see what problems they have caused so they can see what to blame someone else for. This guy, to quote from the article, “No one can dismiss Chomsky as an idiot” is little more than a shill for more of the same crap that his choice of so called leaders have caused. In my opinion there is no question he is an idiot.

    No one can dismiss Chomsky as an idiot,

  64. maxx says

    Why is Fix This Nation even giving Chomsky any face time? They call him “radical left”? Why use puffball words like that to describe a “Staunch Card Carrying Marxist”? Liberals like to do that like calling “sexual perverts” gay because it disguises what they do as acceptable. Is FTN leaning left as well? Because political correctness is a liberal invention.

    1. Reality Check says

      the person lacking Critical Thinking Skills, is the person who thinks anyone wants to be a communists.

      you cons need to get over this cold war era “commie” shit.

      WHAT is with you people and this “Road to Communism” shit you are always proclaiming that the left is heading for?

      So tell me, WHAT shining light of “Communism on the Hill” is out there that the US Liberal is desperate to emulate?

      HISTORY tells us that communism FAILED MISERABLY in Russia and China who have both gone to CAPITALISM.

      the remaining commie countries are barely functioning.

      SO WHY do the right keep thinking the left are desperately conspiring to get there?

      especially when you fools also say the left get EVERYTHING FOR FREE?

      1. AmericanBelle1 says

        Only a fool wouldn’t recognize that the only difference between communism and socialism is that the former has the state owning ALL means of production while the latter will allow some ownership of production, but only through co-ops. We are in the latter’s stage, thanks to liberals. Communism will follow if we continue down this slide, especially if Hillary is elected. History also tells us that socialism has failed miserably as well.

        There is no need for the right to “think” liberals are conspiring to get “there”…it’s obvious that we’re on that road right now BECAUSE of liberals. What in hell do you think Obamacare is? Medicare? Medicaid? Social Security?

        And the most useful tool in making our trip down that road come quickly is the Democrats’ tool of political correctness, which suppresses the truth, opposing opinion; and anyone who has the gall and audacity to go against political correctness is labelled one of many various -phobes.

        Our rights have been stripped and our Constitution is shredded daily by this bunch on the left.

        Why don’t you start paying attention to what is going on in our country? And then, it would be a good thing to learn a little history. That would help. Next, listen to what Clinton and Sanders are saying. Sanders himself had said, before he ran for national office, that he was a Communist but could not declare as such since Americans would never go for that. He was buddies with Hugo Chavez, by the way, and his term ‘Democratic Socialism’ is exactly what those cute little Castro boys called themselves before they slaughtered thousands of their fellow Cubans in their overthrow of the Batista Government (look it up….I am sure you have no clue, simply by what you have said). When Sanders first declared his bid for the presidency, the Communist Party of Vermont backed him as did the Communist Party of the United States. They are pretty silent now so as to confuse simpletons such as yourself. In other words, fella, get an education. You sound so ridiculous. And so naive!

Grow up, Sonny. Dimwits like you are destroying the country because you are too lazy to investigate what’s true or not. Yes, continue to listen to the pathological liar Hillary. Or Obama. Even his own ObamaCare architect said that the American voter is ‘stupid’. They passed it, even after Nancy Pelosi said, “You can’t see what’s in the bill until we pass it.”. Did that not give you pause, you idiot? That is not how our government works. But I can tell that you don’t have a clue. As Lenin and Stalin would say, you are a ‘useless idiot’. But then, you don’t even know who they are.

            “. They passed it, even after Nancy Pelosi said, “You can’t see what’s in the bill until we pass it.””

            well now that we have established that you are a disingenuous conservative, is the rest of your knowledge equally as WRONG?

            I am a retired white male

          3. petemobtv says

            Wow…you really ARE stupid. You don’t think that Pelosi said that? Seriously? You don’t think she said that? What a waste of oxygen you are. Look it up, you fucking jerk!!!! And then try thinking!!! Gawwwd, you really are an idiot. Somebody as stupid as you shouldn’t even be alive; you have a brain of a turnip! She said it!!! Look it up!!

          4. Reality Check says

            she said IT,
            but the MEANING is the issue, disingenuous fool.

            the Senate and House version was in committee to become ONE bill.

            AND when she said THAT, it was not out of that committee yet, and was a joke.

            of course the loser right wing has to use any disingenuous crap to divide the country.

            worked with fools like you.

  66. Edna Ethel says

    Chomsky is correct that fear is the main driving factor behind Trump’s success, but the fear is of Chomsky’s making and the making of all the namby pamby social mandates forced on the American public by the far-left fanatics. From diversity mandates that penalize decent folks and reward anyone who is willing to play a minority card to financial mandates for those who refuse to work and be responsible, the left has undermined principles of honest citizenship. The beginnings of a socialist state are the things that have promoted fear in law-abiding and patriotic Americans. Needless to say, the democrats [sic], who care only about votes that enable their twisted power, are fully to blame for the outrage that is coming to the forefront of society (and politics). Curiously, the masses who continue to support criminal charlatans like Clinton either are not intelligent enough to recognize all the lies or are so blinded by their own much more significant fears, hatreds and paranoia that they most likely will vote in yet another destroyer of American values.

    WHEN WILL WE GET A REAL AMERICAN LEADER WHO WILL PUT OUR BELOVED AMERICA FIRST, I SAY CLOSE ALL MILITARY BASES ALL OVER THE WORLD AND BRING ALL OUR BOYS HOME, STOP ALL $$$$$$$$$$$ AID OUTSIDE THE USA, LETS TAKE CARE OF AMERICANS FIRST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!NO $$$$$ TO ISRAEL, MAKE THEM PAY FOR BLOWING UP THE TWIN TOWERS, ATTACKING THE USS LIBERTY DOING THERE BEST TO KILL OUR BRAVE SONS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        And thank God there isn’t any GOPer who would! You certainly are a flaming liberal. What are you going to do when Trump is inaugurated, political correctness banned, and our military is so beefed up that it will once again be the greatest, mightiest, most powerful military in the world! Did it ever occur to you that “our boys” join the military because it’s what THEY want to do? You do realize that there is no draft and our services are all volunteer? They would appreciate it if you didn’t speak for them. They asked me to call you a coward, but I thought flaming liberal better described you, since all flaming liberals are cowards!

  69. SILENTHAMMER says

    If I were completely out of toilet paper, and something Chomsky wrote was handy, well, you know what I wouldn’t do! When certain people — Chomsky, Keene, Obarry, Biden, Clinton — put themselves out there as the authority on sanity, they’re looking for a long fall. Finally, only their fellow lefties are congratulating them, but the real patriots — that is PATRIOTS! — are standing up and shouting “NO MORE!”. It’s time to push this broken down jalopy — socialism — off the never-ending cliff, roll up our sleeves and get to work rebuilding AMERICA. The hurricane has passed, and it’s “throw out the trash and build quality” time. So far, Trump is the only leader picking up the banner of freedom and dignity and leading. Go, Dude!

  70. Flippy Hambone says

    Chomsky and people that “think” the way he does should be shunned by productive society.

  71. Effenexes says

    political trash is really hard to get rid of these days isn’t it? The dumpster is always entirely full. Things like obama, clintonx2, reid, pelosi, biden, jackson and sharpton always willing to assault and insult the American people. They rise temporarily, only to sink to the lower level over and again.

  72. bdcorvette says

    What do you mean no one can call Chomsky an idiot? He IS one. He is a commie who made tons of money and sheltered it overseas while damning the very capitalism that enabled him to get rich. He is a typical 2-faced liberal pud.

        Grown ups without a brain such as yourself; you are included in with these useful idiots – commie bitch!

        I sort of experienced that firsthand as I was playing tennis at the courts located just outside of the community center where the freeloader was shilling for his ole ugly commie whore. I looked over towards the entrance as a disturbance was developing. I had seen several “civilian army” thugs I. e. county sheriffs on steroids and a suited gentleman and his companion being accompanied out of the building. I had thought that he was part of the security personnel. His female companion must have strewn much paperwork onto the ground and I had heard the stooges threaten her with a thousand dollar fine if she didn’t pick them up! My wife had heard him say, “this is disgusting” as he was being led out of the community center by a handful of these stooges. I was going to approach the couple to ascertain what the commotion was all about – wished that I had – but continued to play on, if I had known the circumstances I would have lent them some support!

        Here is the lesson to be learned from this political bullying from the Communist Party USA – sorry but that is what they have become: 1) the supporters of the Leftists can’t handle the truth. 2) The Clinton’s are evil despots.3) I equated the hordes, no make that flock, of sheeple going to be fed lies and bullshit at the public trough – it was a public community center used for elections – as that of cows being led to slaughter as that is what these useful idiots are doing by committing political suicide! The NWO communist bastards have dumb-downed and drugged-up enough of these imbeciles that will result in these totalitarian oligarchical elitists such as the Clinton’s keeping power! REVOLUTION will be the SOLUTION, Arm==========================?, like it or not, believe it or not but this is the straight skinny! All of ‘US’ are headed – or is it beheaded – for a life of misery, squalor and serfdom if we do not unite and get our heads in the game while we still have them! GOD BLESS AMERICA, what iota of it is left because of the Left!

  74. GuardianFlame says

    Trouble with the Left Liberals, they can’t get past heir own self absorbed importance. When iy comes to making decisions, it’s usually something thay on yhe putside looks loke it will benegit msny, but on the inside it’s to benefit the few, I.e. notoriety, financially, power grabs, etc. Unfortunately, the Left has our Nation in such an imbalance of evil versus good, thay the good feels like it’s losing its grip. DON’T EVER GIVE UP THAT WHICH IS YOURS GIVEN TO YOU BY OUR U.S. CONSTITUTION…FREEDOM OF CHOICE! The Left will promise you anything (look at the prime examples – obama and hillary, the two biggest LIARS of all time!) to get what they want…promise you anything. Are we living better financially? Is our Security better? Have our borders been secured and closed? Has Abortion’s ugly head been severed? Has Iran stopped msking nuclear missiles? Has American Citizens (not illegal immigrants) found better jobs or any jobs to better support their families? Has the chasm betwern the Blacks snd the Whites been closed and race relations are good and growing?

    You can’t answet one “yes” to any of these questions because the past 8 years have been a destructive nightmare for most Americans. The Politics that screamed out of the White House have been condemning and destructful’- all aimef right at esch American citizen. Bho hayes this country and sll its people — including the Liberal Left, but they are too stupid to even notice because they follow him like wet nosed puppies who want a bone.

    Any Realist can see why the American Masses want Trump for President. He IS NOT a Politician who thinks with a political mind and he wants our Nation to be strong and successful again — not weakened militarily or reputational wise or financially. He wants each legal citizen to be able to provide a good living for their families and that those families can enjoy a safe and secure life. He wants Christians to be able to worship greely without fear no matter whrre they are and he clearly understands that muslims can”t assimilate into the American culture and our borders must be closed to those peoples. TRUMP IS AMERICA’S WHITE KNIGHT AND THE GOP ESTABLISHMENT WILL NEVER TOPPLE HIM FROM BECOMING PRESIDENT! Jeb Bush? get over it. The American Conservative Citizrns (as wrll ad many independents and democrats too) are done with Politicians…period. Your time is over..

  75. alexwipf says

    No,no,no…I am not a socialist, although my family background going back to the 1500 is communal christian socialism, you know like the Amish or the Mennonites or my forebears the Hutterites. I don’t know why you all get so crazy about socialism, Christ was the original one. My mother was a very kind Christian woman, she was for everyone succeeding, if that’s a socialist so be it. And by the way, please don’t ask me to leave my country because l don’t agree with you. What I always loved about America was we used what ever worked. We were practical. It’s obvious something is wrong, but I don’t think it is what you’re all screaming about. I honestly feel you are being manipulated. Who is doing that? Who has the most to gain by keeping things like they are? I have some ideas, but it’s definitely not the villans mentioned in this article. You know it’s easy to scream and insult people’s ideas, it’s much harder to spend your time thinking about how we have gotten here and opening your mind to practical solutions.

    1. AKLady says

  76. NavymanBill says

    Chomsky, is a smart man, but paralyzed by his own blinders and beliefs. The continuous assault on American institutions, in every way, certainly since the 70s-80s, but manifested by Obama, are what is responsible for the rise of Trump. Everything Obama has done since he became President has been upside down and backwards to America’s best interests!! His handlers-Soros, Valerie Jarrett, Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn among others-are America Haters, and he took their direction. And now comes the reaction. And as they used to say in the late 60s-“Sorry About That.” Translation: F### Y##.

    1. AKLady says

      Get over it.
      Your bigotry has gone out of style.
      Trump’s speeches are right out of 1930s-1940s Germany.

      1. NavymanBill says

        For the record AKLady, you can kiss my ass!(or a few other things, but i’ll keep it at that for now._ I’m not supporting Trump-I’m actually hoping a more moderate Repub-Kasich-Rubio- Carson.I’m worried fpor my country-Our country. bu You are too stoned/drunk/stupid/brainwashed to understand that. I REMEMBER YOU from your previous trollings -just a lefty troll nutcase that killed too many brain cells back in the 60s-70s. My “bigotry” is WAY exceeded by YOUR STUPIDITY. Kindly GFYS.

      2. NavymanBill says

        Actually, I thought about it. I shouldn’t have told you to kiss my ass. You’ve probably been doing that to half the guys in Alaska. But I digress. AKLady, you and your Obama loving friends are the one who need to “Get Over It”! And you need to put the bong down!! If you could fucking READ and COMPREHEND what I wrote, I wasn’t defending Trump. I was trying to explain the rise. Obama went way to the left, Everything swings back. That’s what is happening here. He isn’t my choice, as I said. But in your drug addled brain, you thought I was banging the drum for him.I’m not sure if you are just truly pathetic, or truly stupid, or both. But do everyone a favor and Fuck Off!

  77. MichaelZZ says

    I believe that Mr. Chomsky is confused.

    That which gave rise to Mr. Trump was “We, the People” recognizing we need leaders, not politicians, and have become aware that, rather than representing their “constituents”, they are beholden to their “clients”.

    The Liberal Democrats are the movement of Anti-Christ, and they think they can take Jesus down, and all of his followers.
    They will stand in Judgement and face the only creator of all things. Heavenly Father God and his son Jesus, who was foretold in the Old Testament that he would have the Government on his shoulder.
    Well they are not only on his shoulder, but they have been riding him and his seed, since he died on the cross and rose again to save his people from their sins.
    Whether you believe it or not, you are still held accountable and without excuse.

      Take your eschatological, heretical nonsense to where it belongs–where the sun don’t shine.

      I continue to be amazed at the number of people and things the religious wackos identify as “The Antichrist.” “Antichrist is mentioned very few times in Scripture and it is clear from that source that there is not some single sinister future figure who is “Antichrist. Antichrist was present at the time of the apostles(See I John 2:22 and 4:1-3).

        Sir or Maam;
        You are free by the constitution, and entitled to your opinion, same as Ms. Cherry and myself.
        May I also add: You are as dumb as a coal bucket.
        The prophecy books of Matthew 24 and Revelation are constantly warning of the Anti-Christ and his deceptions. 1st chapter where John was exiled on the Isle of Patmos, says Revelation is the book to tell what is to come, in the future.
        Go back to church college and study some more before you put people down, who know more than you do.

        1. headonstraight says

          Tell me, you smug premillennialist, just where in Revelation and Matthew the “Antichrist” is mentioned. I will then get back to you to further disabuse you of the deficiencies of your eschatological hermeneutics.

  79. Jim Horn says

    Chomsky is one of those who has made great contributions to the breakdown that he now is bitching about. Screw him!

    1. AKLady says

      Oh, another one who buys “Made in China” and then complains about American unemployment and welfare.
      .
      f course you dislike people like Chomsky — they tend to speak the truth you donot want to hear.

      1. Jim Horn says

        I seek and buy “made in America” whenever I can. My 14-year old FORD truck runs great and provides wonderful service with made in America tires, made in America shock absorbers, MOOG steering and suspension components etc.. My purchases help to keep Americans employed.

        I do indeed dislike socialists and Communists like Chomsky less than truly civilized people. He might be an intellectual, but I have no time for his balderdash..

        1. AKLady says

          Oh, it makes my head hurt …
          1960s Cold War brainwashing…
          1960s Cold War propaganda.

          Socialis. communism, bla, bla, bla.

          Every modern, industrialized country has a mixed economy. It is the only reason their streets don’t look like those in Asia and India.
          But there is a huge problem — America’s streets are becoming more like India and Asia every day. POVERTY is rampant. We have fallen way behind other countries in many areas. One of the most important is education. — that one you can thank the far right for. The far right in Alaska is now starting another run at science, health and sex education.

          You want to know the real difference between the USSR and the USA?

          The USSR went bankrumpt first and knew enough to quit the games.
          America is still playing world cop.

          I also have very bad new for you — many, if not the majority of parts in your truck came from a foreign country.

          1. Jim Horn says

            And, your 2010’s brainwashing and propaganda is better? At least, I was educated on how to identify the enemy.

            Have you seen the streets of Baltimore, Detroit, Chicago, San Francisco? Our poverty is indeed rampant, and this is in part the result of Communist/Socialist teachers unions that protect failed teachers and condemn good teachers. Our students are being graduated regardless of their level of education, and most are thus unemployable.

            Japan and Singapore have the cleanest streets on earth. Once immaculate Scandinavia has, after 50-years of socialism, some of the worst crap on their streets (Moslem neighborhoods) imaginable.

            The USSR went bankrupt trying to compete with a powerful American economy that was helped along by free enterprise – Reagan style.

            My truck has 80% American/Canadian content. That’s why it is running so well after 150 thousand miles under rough conditions, which include the California desert’s heat.

            I did recently buy a Honda Pilot: American designed, American built with close to 80% American content. Do you know which is the leading American made vehicle imported into Japan? Honda.

            Incredably follish and ignrrant.
            Japan and Singapore also have Muslims in their countries.
            Well we finally have truth — your truck has foreign made parts.
            Canada is a foreign country.

          3. Jim Horn says

            Moslem or Muslim – both are acceptable in Webster’s dictionary.

            I’ll be one of the first to acknowledge that only about 10-15% of 2 billion (your count) Moslems are savage barbarians. That makes for close to 300 million savages wanting to kill me and mine and steal all that we have. Feel better?

            I sincerely pity the remaining 1.7 billion (your count) Moslems who mostly remain ignorant, impoverished, diseased, and miserable as their leaders impose Mohammedism on them. Feel better? I spent four (4) years in Bangladesh and know and understand their suffering – probably better than you. Feel better?

            Japan has Moslems and forbids the building of Mosques because they (the Japanese) understand about Islam. Also, when their visas expire they MUST leave. I lived in Japan, too and spent time educating some top Japanese leaders and educators about Islam. Feel better?

            Moslems in Singapore abide by Singapore’s laws, rules, and standards. If they go over they line, the Singapore goverfnment ejects them into Malaysia or Indonesia faster than you can blink. Feel better?

            China has been dealing with Moslems on their western frontier for a thousand years, and when any of those Moslems go off, they soon become mixed in with pig shit to fertilize the fields. Feel better?

            Burma, Myanmar has their Moslem invaders, the Rohingyi who are systematically being driven back into Bangladesh or killed off by the Burmese who know better, and have the backing of their big brother/neighbor, China with this endeavor. Feel Better?

            Yeah, my truck has Canadian parts. It even has some French parts, and the electronics are Israeli. None of those parts are Moslem because Moslems can’t do anything right if it’s technical and requires attention to details. There are no, as in zero, automobiles made in any part of the umma with its 2 billion functioning idiots. The Hindus in India do the car building – leaving the Moslems out. Feel Better?

  82. WJMcCarthy says

    To a certain extent Chomsky is right. However, it is not free enterprise that is the cause but rabid globalism and open borders. In the globalist mind (Clinton, Bushes, Rubio) if you need a job no problem, simply move to Mexico or China and get a job. Who would of thought that we would be watching Disney (The Happiest Place on Earth) be sued because it was importing foreign labor and firing Americans. Whether Trump is the solution or an opportunist is the question?

      Over 2 million civilians killed.
      About 57,939 members of U.S. armed forces who had died or are missing.

      Among other countries that fought for South Vietnam on a smaller scale, South Korea suffered more than 4,000 dead, Thailand about 350, Australia more than 500, and New Zealand some three dozen.

      1.1 million North Vietnamese and Viet Cong fighters. killed.

      American involvement in Vietnam began during WW II. The French Indochina War broke out in 1946 and went on for eight years, with France’s war effort largely funded and supplied by the United States.

    This man like many on the left or radical or what ever you want to call him should leave America for a country that can provide him with whatever it is that he thinks he wants.

    1. AKLady2015 says

      Our Founding Fathers were radicals.
      So radical that they started a revolution.

    NO, corrupt politics gave us Trump, and the childish ranting of Rubio hurts only Rubio.

      1. PatriotForever says

        Why do you, because apparently all of these come from someone who is delusional. Don’t bother replying and expecting any additional exchanges. Proverbs 29:11 A fool utters all his mind: but a wise man keeps it in till afterwards.

        1. AKLady2015 says

          Another bigot claiming to be a Christian.
          Why am I not surprised?

  90. PBHayes says

    Americans will vote for Trump because he is the opposite of Obama and Clinton. Trump has actually accomplished positive things in his life unlike Obama and Clinton. I challenge anyone to name a single policy, law, regulation etc that Obama or Clinton is responsible for that has benefited a single American citizen. Looking at a partial list we have Fast & Furious where automatic weapons were sold to the Mexican Cartels; Lois Lerner and the illegal IRS targeting of conservative non profits; Benghazi where four Americans were murdered after Clinton contracted with an Al Qaeda affiliated group for their security and then refused to send help when they were under terror attack for many hours; the Iranian deal releasing $150 billion which will be spent on more terrorist attacks and the development of nuclear weapons and what did we get; the creation of ISIS in Iraq and Syria under Obama and Clinton’s amazing leadership; federal debt that will exceed $21 trillion when this POS is finally out of the WH; open borders and a complete refusal to allow federal agents to do their jobs; bringing in hundreds of thousands of Muslims who all believe in the same Koran and the same prophet Mohammed; two Democrats running for the Presidency where is one clearly guilty of several thousands felony counts under the Espinonage Age, numerous corruption counts under the bribery statute and multiple false statements made to federal agents while the other is a very old Communist who couldn’t be more of a joke. This list could go on and on but no one cares what we the citizens believe and no one is going to do anything to save our country. The USA is no more.

    1. AKLady says

      People who worship the God Profit will vote for Trump.
      His huge bank account is all that matters to them.
      .
      Oh, and darling Fast & Furious was simply a name change for a Bush program.

    Anything Noam abhors, I support and approve of.

    1. AKLady says

      Sounds like one of those red state school drop outs.
      Nothing new there.

      1. dickielittle says

        I AM A PROFESSIONAL, WITH ADVANCED EDUCATION!!! YOU CALUMNY IS FOUNDED IN INVENTION, LIKE NOAM CHOMSKY.

        1. AKLady says

          If you were what you claim to be, you would be aware that the U.S. Census data documents that the “red” states have the highest level of school drop outs.
          Also, highly educated professionals don’t engage in temper tantrums and scream..
          .
          On the other hand, I hold two Ph.D.s which are combined with over 30 years of experience.

          1. dickielittle says

            Learn how to spell two. Your experience has taught you nothing. Do not generalize about red states….only individuals count. Noam Chomsky is a raving Red lunatic.
