    What a total, multi-decade scam missile defense has been (and will continue to be). It will never make us any safer, but it will continue to line the pockets of the few with our tax dollars.

    • Several drops of mercury

      Blame Robert Heinlein, his idea lives on and on and on

      • Malaclypse

        Still can’t compete with his axiom that a well-armed society is a polite society for general awful stupidity.

  • Murc

    It seems to me that, rather than getting into the carrier game, Japan could get the same results for far less money by allying with American war lobby groups in order to commit US forces to their side in any altercation with China.

    I mean, that’s pretty likely to happen anyway. But if cost is a genuine concern, outsourcing to us seems like it’s the best bang for the buck.

  • ChrisTS

    I’m sorry that I clicked on “ugh.” Because it really was not much more than ugh.

    • Yes, but the writer handled the situation with a class and dignity that I wish I had.

      • LoriK

        ITA. That crap shouldn’t happen any more but she handled it far better than I would have. I admire that.

    • bspencer

      Yeah, that was disturbing. I kinda wish I hadn’t clicked.

      But, hey people–racism is over.

      • Conservative POV:
        No, bspencer, it’s NOT over!

        Because YOU LIBERALS, are the REAL racists!!!

        AND misogynists!!!
        AND xenophobes!!!
        AND homophobes!!!

        • bspencer

          I keep forgetting.

      Did you read the comments? I only sampled, but a surprising number of them, well, turn ugh to UGH. As in, how come the whiny b**** can’t get over being called a n*****?

      • DocAmazing

        There’s a reason I no longer spend much time at Salon.

      • The Wrath of Oliver Kahn

        Yeah, it’s pretty repulsive. There’s probably a reason why this is pretty much the only site where I still read comments.

  • Witt

    Thanks for the Gettysburg link. I hadn’t seen those elsewhere. Pretty interesting.

  • Jeffrey Beaumont

    The Marx link was funny. It is interesting when people who thought they knew what Marx was about suddenly realize he had lots of great ideas and sort of have an “ah-hah” moment.
