If you want to see just how badly Limbaugh has dumb the conservative camp down, look up old conservative articles from the 50’s and 60’s. you will find conservatives were not as profoundly stupid as Limbaugh, they actually made brilliant arguments.
One of my favorite pieces is a June, 1968 edition of Readers Digest. This conservative magazine published an article titled “when the loan shark shows his teeth.”
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A U.S. judge threw out a corruption verdict against former Republican Senator Ted Stevens on Tuesday and ordered a criminal probe into “shocking” Justice Department misconduct, in a blow to a legal system marred by accusations of Bush administration abuses.
HAVANA/WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro seemed alert and energetic on Tuesday in his first known talks with U.S. officials in years, and asked how to best help U.S. President Barack Obama normalize relations between their countries, U.S. lawmakers said.
Intel’s Chairman Craig Barrett recently announced that they were unsure when the semiconductor industry would see any lift from the Obama Adminstation stimulus packages. This leaves a fairly gloomy outlook for technology stocks at least in the near term.
Along comes the Wall Street Journal to the rescue with a story about the electricity grid in the U.S. being penetrated by spies. Unfortunately, the Wall Street Journal fails to name any of their sources, choosing instead to refer to them only as “current and former national security officials.”
This piece is hogwash and those unnamed sources are cowards.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Regulators opened a debate on Wednesday on how the United States, trailing many industrialized countries in access and adoption of high-speed Internet, can extend the technology to low-income and other under-served areas.
