Robert Scheer on Ron Paul
I'm not a huge fan of Robert Scheer, but he does get it right from time to time. And Chris Hedges is also a columnist on TruthDig ...
This is from Scheer's latest piece, posted on TruthDig, entitled Marginalizing Ron Paul:
"Too much anti-Wall Street populism in the heartland can be a truly scary thing to the intellectual parasites residing in the belly of the beast that controls American capitalism."
Nothing like calling a spade a spade, eh?
Since the subject of being in the belly of the beast has been broached, I wanted to steer interested readers to this piece, entitled In the Belly of the Beast, on William Bowles' blog, Investigating the New Imperialism.
Bowles doesn't pull any punches in his essay. None at all. Warm up with Scheer and then proceed to Bowles. And get ready for some cognitive dissonance!
