    What leadership looks like “from behind”. Clever.

    The world has had more than enough of the contents of this store, thank you very much.

    Change the subject much, Lisa? If you want the Federal ‘cops’ back on the job, convince your Senate friends to give the Country its new Attorney General. Open the shop. Let business proceed.

    Fact of the matter is, Ms. Lisa, the RepublCon Noise Team PREFERS chaos and disorder to traditional American government. Why? Anarchy creates more opportunities to ‘privatize’ — think social security, healthcare, the national parks, infrastructure and maintenance.

    Who’s gonna pay for that chaos, eh? Ayn Rand? Milton Friedman? You and your parrots out in cozy Orange County better wake up… I mean presuming the majority of you actually want to LIVE IN a democracy.

    About as clever is that tired old cliche. Exactly what is that supposed to mean, anyway?

    Saudi Arabia now taking military action against the rebels in Yeman. Iraq and Iran fighting the ground war against ISIL. Getting the local countries to take responsibility for their own destiny. The only way it will work in the long run. Clever.

    Maybe we are in the “end of days”… If you read the book of revelations, you might notice that there doesn’t seem to be any mention of the U.S. in the battle.

    Right on! What we in the US should be doing, is cut foreign aid spending and close all our overseas military bases and just defend ourselves from the inevitable world war that will result. Good idea!

    Like all fairy tales and historic records, Revelations was written by men, with their possessed knowledge, using “facts” from the day. It is no surprise then that the Unites States is not mentioned. This continent was not even known at that time. But that does not mean it did not exist and that does not mean that it will not continue to exist. Nice try at diversion.

    When all the rest of the world hears is our Republicans incessantly bleating out lies and other assorted hatred of this President, telling anyone willing to listen or in need of preformed “thoughts” how evil, weak, unworthy this President is, is it any wonder that the world has a lowered opinion of this country, its leader and its leadership by way of the Congress? What a self-fulfilling prophecy the Republicans are.
    “The rest of the world hates us”
    “The rest of the world doesn’t respect us”
    “We are laughing stock of the world.”
    “The President has destroyed American Exceptionalism”
    “The rest of the world hates us”
    “The rest of the world doesn’t respect us”
    “We are laughing stock of the world.”
    “The rest of the world hates us”
    “The rest of the world doesn’t respect us”
    “The President has destroyed American Exceptionalism”
    “The rest of the world hates us”
    “The rest of the world doesn’t respect us”

    And you know what happens? The rest of the world does lose respect for us. Not because of our President, but because of the outright and blatant lies told over and over and over again by our Republicans. The rest of the world is not stupid. As the reply from Iran to the treasonous Republicans demonstrated, many of the leaders of the rest of the world know and understand our governing principles far better than many of our politicians understand themselves. It all comes to, Tell a lie often enough and with enough veracity and eventually it will be believed to be true. Even if only for a short time. So if the United States has lost it’s exceptionalism, has lost respect on the world stage, had lost its moral authority, it is not because this President “leads from behind” it is because of the continual subterfuge perpetrated by the Republicans.

    @WiseOrator

    You assume that this country was not known at the time, but recent archeological discoveries may be putting that to the test.


    Revelations was written nearly 2000 years ago and foretold both the dispersal and the reunification of the Jewish state. It also has a pretty awesome description of what reads just like a mushroom cloud.


    Having said that, I don’t live my life thinking the bible is literally true. That is insane. Preposterous. Untethered from reality.


    I just wish it wasn’t so accurate.

    I’ve never read the book of revelations, but I’ve read the book of “Revelation”…

    I replied to your first comment before reading your second. I see you suffer from your own delusions. Blaming everything on republicans (I’m not one) is just astounding.


    People laugh at me for having logic in my “name”… but your “wisdom” is hysterical.

    That sign would be saying “open” to the public.

    Benson has drawn the sign to make it clear that we are inside the store looking out. In that case, the “closed” sign that we see would say “open” from the outside. I don’t know if that was her intention.
