Noam Chomsky compare our two most recent Commanders-in-Chief…
"If the Bush administration didn't like somebody, they'd kidnap them and send them to torture chambers. If the Obama administration decides they don't like somebody, they murder them."
On the down side, we're slowly turning into an unrecognizable dystopian mirror of everything we have long claimed to despise. On the plus side, though, we're getting more streamlined.

Noam Chomsky on the modern Republican Party in relation to its heroes…
"Today, Nixon would be a flaming radical, and Dwight D. Eisenhower would be off the spectrum. Even Ronald Reagan would be on the left somewhere."
That's all well and good, but from what I understand, this Chomsky guy still acknowledges that outdated concepts such as authoritarian states actually exist. So, I don't see why we should care what a fascist like him thinks.
