Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

The Power of Nightmares

Learn how the modern Islamic jihadi movement started in Greely, CO and other interesting facts. Don't miss this Adam Curtis documentary that parallels radical Islamicism and neoconservatism.

I don't necessary agree with everything, of course, but I do like to see things from another angle. One thing I don't agree with is that Bill Clinton's creepiness was an exaggeration for the benefit of controlled conflict.  The dude was a creep, but as we're finding out, most politicians are.
