One question: Why isn't the KKK on that chart?

VOICE (OVER LOUDSPEAKER): Internees will remove all clothing, jewelry, and footwear and place these items in the bin to their left...

B LEWIS: Well, what do you know? The John Birch Society was right after all.

We cannot vote our way out of this any longer.

I agree with Ann B on that point.

But I disagree with her in that we are not at a point where violence is workable, prudent or would advance our cause therefore it is not plausible.

What is left for us to do? Of what use is knowing?


There is opportunity in a decaying environment when you know how the play ends..

We are that remnant you spoke of in the sidelines.

Where's the chart or events diagram [Gantt Chart or equivalent] that describes how Tea Party candidates won elections?
Where's the demand from the chronic complainers and democracy disdainers for a comprehensive civics program to be taught, argued about and learned, in despairers' private domiciles and in public libraries?

If the crappers do a better job organizing, educating, agitating, and accomplishing than we pathetic pawns, then they've earned the right to promote their blight!

Our protestations are deficient in contesting for the essential issues --- truthfully, clearly, simply, pertinently, and of course, effectively.
A public speaking course and an argumentation course would be of more help than the current self-intercourse [intracourse?] of worthless wailing.

Woe is me, is no program to be proud of. We should hang our heads in shame before bemoaning the scurrilous slimes oozing in and over all of us.

Timely. I am tonight listening to The Whittaker Chambers Conference (of 2004) from the cspan archives.
