    Unfortunately, in this particular case, you get earthquakes as well.

    Please give a few specific cites of commentators saying that Obama said “he alone killed bin Ladin [sic]”? What is a fact that in his speech reporting this he repeatedly said “I” made the decision, gave the order, etc. The troops who carried it out were given relatively short shrift.

    “it’s a good thing he has some defenders.” LOL! He only has the entire mainstream media who have been singing his praises and almost totally ignoring his many failures.

    Add “social justice” to George Orwell’s list:

    ‘The word Fascism has now no meaning except in so far as it signifies “something not desirable”. The words democracy, socialism, freedom, patriotic, realistic, justice have each of them several different meanings which cannot be reconciled with one another. In the case of a word like democracy, not only is there no agreed definition, but the attempt to make one is resisted from all sides… Other words used in variable meanings, in most cases more or less dishonestly, are: class, totalitarian, science, progressive, reactionary, bourgeois, equality.’

    “No one ever explained that to us in science class or math class. Now that sort of information would have fascinated us, instead of that business about the two trains leaving the station at the same time…”

    Have you ever thought about train wheels?

    Relative to the rail, the wheel’s point in contact on the rail isn’t moving at all.

    And at that same instant, the top of the wheel is moving 2x the speed of the train!

    And you know the flange on the inside of the wheel that extends past the rail? At that same instant, IT’S MOVING BACKWARDS!

    “All I hear out of Republicans is how lousy Obama is and how the ACA will destroy civilization as we know it. They are absolutely silent on any meaningful plan with details on how they would fix the problems we have.”

    1. The implementation of Obamacare is a disaster but nobody’s been fired.

    2. Obama lied over 30 times with the unqualified statement “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan.”

    3. Obamacare is YOUR mess. YOU voted for the idiots who imposed it on us. YOU’RE completely responsible. YOU handle the hot potato. DO NOT EVEN TRY TO SHIFT RESPONSIBILITY ONTO US.
