The Joker:
Wait, really? Are you being serious right now? I thought that was an Onion headline, didn’t even read the article. Just scrolled right past it. Holy shit, she really got me with that one.


You’re seriously not joking?

(extended pause)

Hang on, I’m googling this.

Lex Luthor, Dr. Doom, Loki, Catwoman and Thanos also have their say at the link.

A Call to Halt an Illegal Invasion of Venezuela - Kevin Tillman

Kevin Tillman, brother of Special Forces vet Pat Tillman and antiwar activist did this piece for Truthdig:


A Call to Halt an Illegal Invasion of Venezuela

It seems like every time I pick up a newspaper or go online, our country is starting another war. As a veteran of both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, I am consumed by the situation in Venezuela, which is becoming more and more concerning.

I’m not a war correspondent, and I don’t have a Ph.D. in political science. But I have seen these conflicts firsthand, and I have felt the effects. Like many in this country, I have lost family members and friends in both Iraq and Afghanistan. I don’t want anyone else to have to experience that. Unfortunately, the inertia over regime change in Venezuela bears a striking resemblance to what happened in the lead-up to the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003.

As was the case in Iraq, there are no legal or moral grounds to intervene in the affairs of Venezuela and no international laws to support such an intervention. There is nothing in the Constitution that sanctions meddling in the elections of a foreign country, and nothing in the Venezuelan constitution that legitimizes self-appointed presidents. Venezuela is not a threat. Venezuela is not firing missiles at the United States, attacking our allies or invading the U.S. with troops.

To be clear, this is not an endorsement of Maduro, any more than I endorsed former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein (nor am I comparing the two). This is about our leaders thinking they have the right to interfere in the affairs of any country they choose. Not only is regime change illegal and morally wrong, it has proved to be disastrous.

Dan Rather on Trump's SOTU address: "This is who he is"


This is who he is, who he was, and ever shall be.


In the end, I doubt many if any minds were swayed. How many even watched? Does it matter? Do we care?


State of the Union speeches rarely last in the consciousness of the country. And one has a sense that this one is already being forgotten, or was never thought about in the first place.
