The March of the Sore Losers

I’m not sure if Barack Obama will make a great president or not? But shouldn’t we at least wait until he is in office before we start talking about his policy decisions? This letter writer is ready to take him down ahead of time.

Our country has elected a man about whom we know little to nothing. For one who campaigned on transparency, it befuddles me how we know so little about Barack Obama and his past.

HUH? Have you been living under a F’ing rock for the past 2 years? He has written two books and has been interviewed hundreds of times. Heck, go online and just google his name.

And this quote from Obama: “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

Every citizen has right to know who was just elected president and a duty to protect us from foreign terrorists.

Not sure what Obama’s objective is with the civilian national security force. But I would assume it would be similiar to a neighborhood watch group or the Red Cross. So don’t get your shorts in a bunch.

Homeland Security Gone Wrong: The Story of Star Simpson

 

A year ago yesterday, an MIT student was arrested and nearly killed at Boston Logan airport. Her crime: wearing a home-made hoodie with a LED circuit-board sewn into it. This is her first interview since the event. A full transcript is at the bottom of the page or those who don’t want ot watch the video.

I remember the right-wing blogosphere jumping all over her like she was either a terrorist or some sort of social miscreant. Turns out she was just there to pick up a friend. if this is the level of police stupidity we’re willing to allow to protect us from terrorists, then they’ve already won.

Personally, I think Ms. Simpson should sue everyone from the cops, to the airport authority, to homeland security for putting her through a year of absolute Hell.

Only Republicans are allowed to exploit 9/11

This was inspired by Keith Olbermann – I also think I have seen this spelling before of Republican, it must have seeped into my subconcious somehow?
