We are going to return to our original fully-moderated format in the comments section.

The abusive complaints in the comment sections are just too far out of control at this point and have become a significant burden on our staff. As a result, our moderators will review all comments prior to publication. Comments will no longer go live immediately. Please be patient and check back.

To improve your chances of seeing your comment published, avoid confrontational or antagonistic methods of communication. Really that is the problem we are confronting.

We encourage all views. We discourage ad hominem disparagement.

Warren County Public Library Bowling Green,KY has the attitude toward intellectuals that was promoted by Nazi Germany. The books are flying off the shelves to the city landfill regularly.

I fully agree with Chomsky here ... don't always, but he's right on target I think, and the messages that work to co-opt the ignorant into working against their best interests combined with designing government system to be dysfunctional.

We are dealing with a class of people that do nothing in the work of running the country, they are only concerned with being the power position where they really do not have to do anything think up more mischief.

Yes, we are in for trouble.

Perhaps you don't consider Obama and Pelosi and Reid and Schumer and Feinstein and Baucus and Landrieu and, say, about 35 other Democratic Party Senators, and perhaps upwards of 70% of the House's Democrats, unless they are not liberals, the right wing nuts make more sense than do these whatever-kind-o f-nuts most of us see as the very most leading liberals.

Because the Democratic Party has been either hiding behind the Tea Party wing of the GOP, or it has been inexplicably bumbling the legislation it controlled from 2009 onward. From the Banking & Finance monstrosity, which made and still makes the banking and finance criminals more criminal and far more wealthy while the rest of us wonder what happened to our country under both parties. To the current fumbling of gun rights legislation. The Democratic Party legislates as if they are following Limbaugh & O'Reilly, et. al.

So, why should we not see them as the liberals, since they run the Democratic Party, and why should we not curse them for their astonishing ineffectual, inept, and radically reactionary "liberalism?"

There are some very intelligent liberals in the Democratic Party.

They are unfortunately & routinely marginalized and rendered ineffectual by the Democratic Party's leadership, from Obama on down. Harry Reid's following the Tea Party lead in refusing to reform the filibuster rules is a reactionary Tea Party bizarre, ineffectual stupidity.
