To double down means to bully. That's what she and the rest of the White House harridans do, thinking they're being macho. The greatest double-downer, of course, is Hillary.

Remembering D-Day

kgrammer Wrote: Jun 05, 2014 5:18 PM
Written by a Frenchman who witnessed the D-Day Invasion as a child: "Dear Veteran: 'I am writing to say 'thank you' and through me there are thousands of children speaking to thousands of Veterans. Like us, you were young and carefree, but when you were only twenty years old, Liberty called you to say, 'I am dying, come save me.' "And you arose, full of courage and zeal, to answer the call. You underwent training, day after day for D-Day, and, one day in June, you arrived by air and sea. And you fought with the heart and soul of a free man, so that we too might be free. "You saw your fellows fall on our beaches and in our fields and, in spite of your grief and injuries, you stayed on and fought side-by-side with us. And so you, dear Veteran, I want to tell you, regarding those dear to you who sacrificed their youth and are resting in peace, the sleep of the just, that "We are the Children They never had "And to you, dear Veteran, who offered your bravery and your most promising years for this land, I say to you "We are your Sons, "Sons and Daughters of Liberty, "Who want to say to you today "A Heartfelt 'Thank You.'" Jean Gujon When I visited the Normandy beaches in June, 2011, there were American flags at private homes and throughout the villages near the American cemetery. The children there visit the cemetery and lay flowers at the gravesides. Their teachers have them research the names of the soldiers buried there. The grave of Kermit Roosevelt, who was shot down in Germany during World War I, was moved to the American Cemetery to lay beside his brother Brig. General Theodore Roosevelt, who died during the D-Day Invasion.

Sounds like Thomas Friedman is angling for a White House dinner invitation. One thing the World is Flat guy and the Stupid Stuff guy share is an obsession to be cool.

Just Assume We Have a Climate Crisis

I think your second assumption is closer to the truth. I mean, we're talking about an organization which allows Iran to serve on the Human Rights Committee. If global warming is in the forecast, given an incredibly small and long increase over time, then it's probably a good thing. More arable land, more cloud formations from increased evaporation in the ocean. But the reality of all this conjecture is how forgetful people are when their "leaders???" start hyping these are the worst storms, fires, droughts, floods, whatever, in human history. No, they are not. It might seem worse but only because highly populated, urban areas that were not so dense in the past, are now be devastated by storms that are indifferent to where they strike. Billion dollar waterfront developments are being washed into the sea. Ironically AGW alarmists will say any weather condition--hot or cold--is proof of manmade "climate change" (the new mantra). Science that explains everything, explains nothing.

If you torture the evidence long enough, it will confess to anything.

Well said. What a contrast from today.
I know what will be said about Obama's presidency. A total failure. Maybe like the broken clock, he was right twice, but no more. However, the problem is not Obama, it's the citizenry that made him president. "The Republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of Idiots such as those who [elected him]." Published by newspaper in Czech Republic, 28 April 2011.

Moral Bankruptcy

moral busybodies paving the road to hell, but doing so with the approval of their own conscience. CS Lewis called the worst of all tyrannies is a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims. Those who would torment us for our own good will torment us without end.
That's right. The high ranking members of the State and Defense Departments knew how long the attack would last beforehand. They said to themselves, Chris Stevens will be dead within 7 to 9 hours after the attack (over the internet video) begins and we can't possibly get there. Let's secure the bunkers around White House instead.
