Mad Men: the Sequel
This Memorial Day, let's remember the countless thousands of Americans who gave their lives in order that a corporate police state could be established in Wyoming. It's bad enough that several states have already passed Ag Gag laws, making it a felony to photograph or document animal abuse inside factory farms; or the State of North Carolina making it a felony to reveal which chemicals are being used for fracking.
Here's an excerpt from President Obama's Keynote Address at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy Commencement:
Why bother with cow-tipping when Republican-tipping is so much more fun? Ambushing Jeb Bush or Marco Rubio with the Iraq question is sort of like sneaking up behind a waiter who's carrying a huge tray full of dishes, and tickling him in the ribs.
Larger than life, the end of an era, etc.; what else can you say?

According to Cal Thomas, that Commie safety net is responsible for Baltimore's festering racial problems. You know the drill: too much government coddling, too many handouts, have created a sense of helplessness and dependency and sapped the will to pull oneself up by one's bootstraps. Too much whining about the past, not enough individual initiative, yada yada.
...and eight other facts that too many Americans don't understand. Among them:
“Arise, then, women of this day! Arise all women who have hearts,whether our baptism be that of water or of fears! Say firmly: We will not have great questions decided by irrelevant agencies. Our husbands shall not come to us, reeking with carnage, for caresses and applause. Our sons shall not be taken from us to unlearn all that we have been able to teach them of charity, mercy and patience.
We women of one country will be too tender of those of another country to allow our sons to be trained to injure theirs. From the bosom of the devastated earth a voice goes up with our own. It says 'Disarm, Disarm! The sword of murder is not the balance of justice.'
Blood does not wipe our dishonor nor violence indicate possession. As men have often forsaken the plow and the anvil at the summons of war, let women now leave all that may be left of home for a great and earnest day of counsel. Let them meet first, as women, to bewail and commemorate the dead.
Let them then solemnly take counsel with each other as to the means whereby the great human family can live in peace, each bearing after their own time the sacred impress, not of Caesar, but of God.
In the name of womanhood and of humanity, I earnestly ask that a general congress of women without limit of nationality may be appointed and held at some place deemed most convenient and at the earliest period consistent with its objects, to promote the alliance of the different nationalities, the amicable settlement of international questions, the great and general interests of peace.”
Just a few weeks ago, I would have dismissed this news story as just more paranoid rantings from a bunch of Texas rednecks — that there Commie Muslim in the White House is fixin' to take over the gummint, etc.
