    Every year this comes up and every year we have to explain to everyone that this is not a popularity contest and the winner does not always represnt the best of our race, I almost wish Time would stop doing it so I would not have to explain this to people every year

    Heh, I wish people could read and pay attention so I wouldn't have to explain it to them. Oh well.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    No, you are again wrong, my friend.

    OWS did not inspire the Arab Spring, and I never said they did.

    However, you dishonestly claimed that the cover of Time magazine says "From the Arab Spring to Occupy Wall Street".

    Maybe this thread should be in the bias section, seeing as how Time's PoY for the past few years is really nothing more than a skewed representation of whom the progressive left is in love with.

    So the left loves (since 2000) George Bush, Rudolph Giuliani, The American Soldier, George Bush, Vladimir Putin, Ben Bernanke and the Facebook guy?

    Out of the last 11, 6 have been conservative, and one was a-political. There's skewing here, but it ain't from Time.

    I believe if you read the articles associated with the cover pieces the bent is clear.

    Making Mark Zuckerberg POY was the last straw. I stopped taking them seriously
