The Israeli government just killed over 100 Gazans, and the US pledges $70 billion to Israel as a result. All the while attempting to frighten us with "fiscal cliff" BULLSHIT. WTF?

4. "All Gazans are terrorists". Nice. Your signature line is working.

 

The president of the united states just refused to actually answer the question. We, and all people deserve a real answer.
