    What’s in that painting on the wall? Why is the phone backwards? Why is the back of the desk lower under Obama’s left arm? What kind of flowers are in the vase? Isn’t Obama actually left-handed?

    Yes, Obama’s a lefty, the general is apparently a civil war amputee, and Gates just got off the phone and didn’t turn it back around. I hate the concept of drone aircraft in combat, especially “close support”, primarily because of “collateral damage”, but they do seem to be scoring better now that “real time” on the ground feedback is being provided.

    It’s really is scary how many nations around the world are developing these unmanned combat “systems”– “Terminator” mentality, if not total technology is here, now, and real cause for concern about humanity, religion, cultures, and whether $$ isn’t indeed the root-trunk-and fruit of pure evil.

    The obvious solution: replace people with drones, too.

    Money is just a tool; there is no root of all evil mostly because no action is inherently evil. Moreover, good is just our biological tendency as social animals to help the species survive. You are a person, so is some bleeep on the street. Why is helping yourself not as good as helping him? You are both people; he isn’t any better than you.

    I’m not one to be offended, but we have plenty of amputees out of these two wars without having to pull them from the US Civil War.

    The more things change, the more they remain the same. This country will do almost anything to protect the overseas assets of the rich.

    The rich would say they’re just shepherding those assets for the rest of us dumb sheep. Well, baaa – what if we don’t want them?

    possibly drawn correctly but when printed becomes like a mirror image

    Web pages are not “printed” – for starters.

    Bruce4671- I was just pointing out that the caricature showed him as a right hander. But you are free to draw your own conclusions as to the implications. ;-)

    Yes, Obama is a “lefty”, but not as “lefty” as some would portray him nor as “lefty” as others would prefer. But then I probably have better things to do than search for subtle implications in places that are not known for subtlety.

    Where is the Hello Kitty imagery Rall was so fond of? It would be hilariously ironic!
