US Political Parties And Hobson's Choices: Right, Right And/Or Right Again ...
This particular post quite possibly (probably?), won't interest in the slightest, several sections of the so-called 'left' in the United States.
So what? We've been believers in the old principle of 'Publish and be damned' since before billions of 'em were blinkin' born.
But now to get down to business; blog-roll business.
Another laughingly labeled US 'lefty' blog - and another bloody big one to boot - has today been unceremoniously buggered off into oblivion from our blog-roll. And by the way, when we say big we mean BIG, BIG.
Honestly, the more we learn about US politics the less we understand - and the less we like.
Summed up? It seems to us that in so many Americans' minds, anyone leaning left of The Right absolutely must, must, must be a communist.
And this from those who for the most part positively can't come close to comprehending any of the (very many), massive differences between even liberalism and socialism - let alone communism.
Well, whatever. As an ancient adage advises - in the kingdom of the blind, the one eyed man is King.
And no, we're most certainly not saying who's been 'binned' by us today. Since we're pretty sure that far too many readers couldn't resist the temptation to 'hit' such cited sites.
And that, as sure as shit stinks, would definitely defeat the object of the exercise.
We will say this though - the first one that went (an awful long time ago too), was this one.
Then, not too long later, this one.
(So sue us, surrogates.)
