    I distinctly remember that part of the Constitution. Article I, Section 9, Clause 9:
    “No Law which permits or otherwise engages in Un-American Socialism shall be passed.”

    We have TEN 9/11s a year in traffic deaths and it doesn’t even slow us down. No war on traffic, no banning cars, no freakouts. But we’re going to burn the country down over muslims.
    The war on terror is like a fatal allergic reaction.

    I was sad to see that small note at the bottom left. I wish R.M. had written this.

    Yes, let’s all get rid of the eeevul soshulism!!! So let’s disband the police, fire departments, the military, road-building projects, Medicare, public schools and universities, Social Security, etc. None of that ever does anyone a lick of good anyway, amirite?

    from my experience arguments or discussions with people who tend toward reactionary thinking whether the normal right wing types or left wing types always progress in a similar circular direction and are equally contradictory and try to deny the starting point of their irrationally held beliefs.

    #3. That allergic reaction metaphor is perfect. Perfect. Xenophobia is a pseudo-evolved(because culture doesn’t really obey all the same rules genetics do, no matter what Dawkins says) response to outside threats to a society. Uniting to fight a war is a healthy response if a war is going to happen, but auto-immune responses like attacking every Muslim inside your borders is a fucked up response by an overly aggressive antibody.
