This article is a downer. The author writes about Crimea and our response to it. It also goes into the history of the region and our history. Urie seems to be an equal opportunity complainer, he hates Republicans and lost his patience with liberals for embracing too many of their ideas and giving the republican ideas legitamacy even though they are wrong 100 percent of the time. He does rail against capitalist democracy and how our hands has blood on them from slavery, genocide and social oppression.

He also thinks we Americans are mostly idiots.

But then it made me think. If an article does that thats good even if I feel ragey at points.

I never heard of counterpunch before this morning and they seem left leaning according to wikipedia.

What do you think of this?
