Paralysis Sets In as DOJ Faces Crisis
Source: US News & World Report

1. WILL they release them?
Or will they announce another "minor, technical" delay?

Maybe they will give him a room to contemplate his life? A special room, dark, dank, with bars. That would be appropriate since he does belong to the bar. Actually bars.

8. while I commend the photoshop talent
it bothers me to use this photo this way

I know it is intended to reflect HIS callousness, but I just can't accept it.

When I see this photo I want to declare a personal moment of silence. I know what those flags are covering, what is inside.

not funny

10. my first thought was that the caption should have said "Why haven't
YOU died for me yet?" I think it captures the true sense of how Gee DUHbya feels about the troops. They're cannon fodder, nothing more, nothing less. The deaths don't matter to him. At all. Only the profits, and amassing more money for the elite ruling class they are trying to create.

This picture should be tied to him everywhere he goes, because we all know he avoids the bodies at all costs. Let the sheeple see him in front of his handy work.

Otherwise, I do understand your point too. It's a very somber picture, and yes, we know what is inside. We don't want to sully or degrade these fallen heroes with the Shrub's presence.

All gave some, some gave all. R.I.P. Soldiers

12. It's mostly about lack of prosecution for border violations. Is that what this is all about?
I looked through most all of it and that was consistently the subject.
