Yves Smith: The Hidden History Of The Independence Day Holiday

This hidden history of our national celebration is only a small portion of Carey’s account of the extent and reach of the Americanization campaign.

Mitt Romney & The Curse Of Joseph Smith: “It’s The End Of The World As We Know It, And I Feel Gentile”

“Why are you sending me Charlie Manson quotes, Ames? Are you threatening me?”

I didn’t have the heart to tell him I was quoting Mitt Romney’s own personal Yoda or that the thought of an upgraded version of Joseph Smith taking control of the White House should scare the shit out of secular humanists and liberal elites, who, so far, have dismissed Romney’s foundational ideology, treating it with parody or scorn, if at all.
