Bourne, whose writing was careful but provocative, honest and also an advocacy journalist of his time (thank goodness),
famously wrote that war was the health of the state, an axiom woefully undersharpened, except by Scheer and a few other brave truth diggers. Scheer also has to remind the reliably annoying Clinton apologist Matt Miller over and over and over again on LRC about the illegal ones, the covert ones, the cold ones, the atomic ones, and so on when he is not reminding everybody that the so-called left-wing Obama administration bailed out a bunch of big money crooks and did not prosecute any of them and that we are in war, war, war, by drone and gun and flying bomber and wiretaps, all of which takes food out of the mouths of poor children, not to mention cripples our education, infrastructure, regulatory agencies. Don't get me started. Or do, by all means!
