By republicanSScareme, February 6: “I think it refers to the idiotic comments Mr. Chomsky made regarding a 9/11 investigation. He said “Who cares?” whether 9/11 was committed by the Bush Administration or who killed John Kennedy…”

Agreed! See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LoDqDvbgeXM&search=conspiracy at about 3.55min+

Mr. Fish,

How about a cartoon image of Obama at the mast of the boat of Earth? And Bush and Cheney being pushed off the plank in the background?

All that we need to know about the darkness of Israel is to ask Rabin’s widow.

First off, I firmly believe that Chomsky is, all by himself, the Beatles of all smart guys; the John, Paul, George and Ringo of genius.  The ice that he’s skating on does not represent anything.  The cartoon is simply a gag.  The idea that Chomsky’s world renown might eventually lead him to an ice show struck me as funny and sometimes a joke is all a truthdigger needs.  After all, which Marx inspired more freethinkers to develop both an irreverent disdain for authority and a radical notion of self-determinacy in the face of an ever-present bourgeois super-structure that attempts, daily, to mute humankind’s instinctual passion for truthful self-expression, joy and camaraderie:  Karl or Groucho?

I think it refers to the idiotic comments Mr. Chomsky made regarding a 9/11 investigation. He said “Who cares?” whether 9/11 was committed by the Bush Administration or who killed John Kennedy.

Chomsky looked and talked like a complete idiot in the interview and it appeared that maybe he had taken a long ride with some Zionist Mossad agents.

The kind of ice Noam skates on doesn’t need a Zamboni, its deep and keeps itself clean.

Will some one please explain this Cartoon. I did not
get it.  Did chomsky say something controversial?
Or did he talk from both sides of his mouth? And
what did he say?
