Kristofs’ bananas Hitches betise

Strange title for this post: the argument of this post: striking arguments. First, Kristof at NYT: he argues we are (the US) a banana republic: the United Banana Sates.priceless, but Not so quickie Nickie boy; we have argued that for YEARS. Moreover we have begged for a discussion on the term banana republic itself,-as an end result of “markets expansion”- to put it mildly and not to say pillage of defenseless. The term “bp” used despectively by politicos-and rednecks- to highlight some nations, in a manner an end result of the policies politicos in US implement elsewhere and that now is knocking our doors. The Godfather shows a bit of the mentality in one movie of the series, What? you dont appreciate the parallel? The diference between the Mafia and some organized corporations that are icons of free enterprise is trivial: remember Enron? Wall street? BP?.
Disclaimer: I admire NK particular engagement advocating for womens “rights” and decry abuse of human female in every way throughout the landscape. . He is a decent guy, very decent. But uninformed of banana republic history. Good striking statement. Long overdue.

Hitchens writes in VF about the “discourse” between cancerees and the “public’-cancerers. Striking article: … boring. There is a decent compassionate way to treat each other or the other way I suggest reading The Wounded Healer. By the way in the Hitchens watch website there is a clip where Hitchens attacks Louis Farrakhan. It seems as if Hitchens fails to acknowledge the impact of black leaders-albeit religious- in their communities. He has done scathing comments on J. Wright and E Long, and also Dr King. I wonder how much of concealed racism (masked as anti-religious, atheist) Hitchens holds. It wouldnt suprise me he is a closeted british (brutish) imperialist (they still think the UK aristocracy owns the Universe. Granted Farrakhan is a striking character, but important 4 black communities. Maybe we wouldnt witness and “enjoy’ their antics now if slavery was not invented .
Granted Farrakhan was brutish himself, especially in his hideous remarks about jews in new york. I wonder why
