12. Dave Lindorff is a fucking moron
Edited on Tue Nov-22-11 10:08 PM by ProSense
<....>

The Obama presidency has been one of the greatest disasters for progressives in modern history...It took some time, but out of this wasteland of wreckage and betrayal... over the last decade of a fraudulent, trumped-up "War" on Terror, into a kind of American Gestapo, that "polices" communities with assault weapons, breaks into homes wearing masks, beats and gasses people without even bothering to arrest them, kills unarmed citizens with impunity, and considers criticism of its actions tantamount to a crime in itself, meriting assault and/or arrest--and that views peaceful public protest as inherently criminal behavior...Obama has overseen and even been the author of much of this disaster, but he still has a choice at this point: Either put an immediate stop to this outrage, by inserting the National Guard between these thugs in blue or black, and the people, and start listening and responding to the demands of the Occupy Movement, or go down to defeat next November as the man who buried American democracy and freedom.


What utter drivel! Who the hell takes this shit seriously?

Then with the moronic image:
