I have a section of my bookmarks entitled "Proofs." A better name would be "Evidences," because there are seldom proofs in any real sense of political and social ideas.

Great post, thanks. Don't know if you've seen these two short videos from Iraq yet or not, but both show the US Military engaging in some very dubious actions. I have them up on my site at

..You have to wonder what these soldiers were thinking when videotaping this stuff...

I don't know if the ripper legitimately came across my site or spammed in.

Okay, not that it matters, but for those of us without YouTube access, what was in that video that got so many commenters fired up at his site?

I don't know if he's a spammer or not, but I've seen ripper place that exact same comment in a number of places completely off topic. Just your averge common or garden variety of troll I expect.
