How Were We So Wrong?

Just came across this "Gut Check" poll from Friday, November 2, 2012:



I wonder why we were all so off? I can't help but think we overestimated our fellow citizens...

Obama's Greatest Accomplishment?

I'm okay. Everyone here is okay. Thanks so much for the concern!

It's just...I have nothing to say. At least nothing I haven't said 1,000 times already. Obama has done what no other man ever has. Left me absolutely speechless.

Where does that leave us?

I haven't yet decided.

You can look for me on TV tonight though...at the Flyers V. Caps game where I am sure I will have plenty of words. I am a Philly fan after all...

Now, let's see if I can leave you speechless:

Battle of the Memes

Facebook and Pinterest have propelled the popularity of the internet meme beyond what the fist person to use Photoshop to write a caption on a picture could have ever imagined... I have posted a few I found exceptionally poignant here, but take pains not to over use them.

One stood out for me yesterday (aside from the tons of funny ones on NHL Memes)and then I saw J. Marquis posted one...which I assume particularly spoke to him (I was just so proud of him that it wasn't one of Rubio drinking water...), so I thought I'd post them both.

Mine:

I wish this new comment section had the ability to post photos like the old one did, so you all could share this weeks favorites...

Citizenship Test

My oldest's 8th grade Social Studies class just took this test in class...I shudder to think what the collective results were...


TAKE THE TEST

Abandoning Our Special Forces...?!


This is a long article, but I hope everyone reads it:

The Man Who Killed Osama bin Laden... Is Screwed:
For the first time, the Navy SEAL who killed Osama bin Laden tells his story — speaking not just about the raid and the three shots that changed history, but about the personal aftermath for himself and his family. And the startling failure of the United States government to help its most experienced and skilled warriors carry on with their lives.

It's disgraceful that these families have to worry about housing, bills and security in their civilian lives...

Beware Pediatric Neurosurgeon Dr. Benjamin Carson

I think we can safely assume that you are the target of the next drone strike on an American citizen...

Can You Imagine If...?!

DoJ memo: It’s legal to kill Americans with drones



Dear Obama Administration:

We that oppose you, are getting quite tired of being redundant. Please, oh please, if you are going to blatantly just do things you excoriated the Bush administration for doing (actually worse things)...at least publicly admit you were wrong about the threats we face and how to run a country. That would make us feel a wee bit better and would save us the now compulsory, "OH MY GOD!, Can you even imagine if Bush would have done this?!", that we all exclaim amongst like-minded people...

Dear Like Minded People:

Someone really should have jumped on an "Imagine of Bush Would Have Done This" Website years ago.. It might have been a profitable venture.

P.S. to all:

I am perfectly okay with killing al Qaeda types with drones, I am balking at the hypocrisy and the silence of the low information types. I am assuming someone would rather be waterboarded than obliterated?

Guest from the Left: J. Marquis

Republicans Returning To Reality?


No more Sarah Palin on Fox News? Sean Hannity suddenly willing to talk about immigration reform? Marco Rubio defending compromise? Maybe there's hope for this country yet.

The tea party is losing a few of its revelers
