Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Read more

Four Americans have been killed in drone attacks

Your comment lacks any merit.
The date was at the top of the document.
So what, if you don't know the names. Do you know the names of all US citizens?
The claim that drones has killed four Americans is documented in the link.
The link is functional.
We cannot help Progressives if they insist on sounding moronic in their posts.
Al-Awlaki, a radical Muslim cleric, was killed in a drone strike in September 2011 in Yemen. Holder said three other Americans were killed by drones in counterterrorism operations since 2009 but were not targeted. The three are Samir Khan, who was killed in the same drone strike as al-Awlaki; al-Awlaki's 16-year-old son, Abdulrahman, a native of Denver, who also was killed in Yemen two weeks later; and Jude Kenan Mohammed, who was killed in a drone strike in Pakistan.

PIERS MORGAN: NOW I SEE U.S. GOVERNMENT TYRANNY
Anti-gun host finally admits firearm advocates might be onto something
Is British CNN host Piers Morgan finally admitting gun advocates have a point when they say the Second Amendment is to protect citizens from tyrannical government?
Morgan has made headlines for many months as he loudly trumpeted the cause of gun control, even to the detriment of his shows ratings.
Now – after learning of the Obama administration’s involvement in the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups and its secret seizure of Associated Press phone records – the CNN host admitted to guest Penn Jillette that perhaps gun advocates were right about creeping tyranny after all:
“I’ve had some of the pro-gun lobbyists on here, saying to me,‘Well, the reason we need to be armed is because of tyranny from our own government,’ and I’ve always laughed at them,” Morgan said.“I said,‘Don’t be ridiculous! Your government won’t turn itself on you....
“But, actually, this is vaguely tyrannical behavior by the American government.” said Piers Morgan

WRONG STUPID! The protection of the President is not the function of the Marines but rather the Secret Service. The Marines are used on occasions such as when a foreign dignitary is being received for ceremonial duties and sometimes that means holding an umbrella to keep the President and his guest dry.

Someone said on The Five yesterday that Congress is going on a week's vacation for an extended Memorial Day weekend.

My heart dropped into my stomach when they said "when there's a scandal during these long breaks, they can either build up or disappear."

If this major scandal which has turned America on its ear and threatens to implicate the highest levels of government of impeachable offenses - including democrats - "disappears" simply because Congress goes on a nice little vacation, something is very, very wrong with us.

Better minds than yours declare it is an idiom. You need to be careful whom you call simple as you are going against experts on this one.

I included a link to a dictionary entry involving that idiom.

"Pride goes before a fall. and Pride goeth before a fall.
Prov. If you are too proud and overconfident, you will make mistakes leading to your defeat.(Biblical.) Sue: I'm the best student in my history class. I'm sure I can pass the exam without studying very hard. Sam: Be careful. Pride goes before a fall, you know."

http://idioms.thefreedictionary.com/Pride+goe...

NOTE the word IDIOMS in the link.

I thought you would have gotten a clue not to argue about this when you saw you were going up against people more knowledgeable than you on these issues. You cannot name call yourself out this one.

Monsanto also produces seeds that are not genetically modified. Are these countries banning the company or the product?

Genetic seed modification allows the seeds to flourish while using certain pesticides. While you freaks may object to that, it allows developing countries to feed their people instead of starving.

You think you did the Third World a big favor by banning the use of DDT, not giving a shit about the millions of people who have died from malaria as a result.

Now just quit embarrassing yourself and wasting my time by insisting on putting your functional illiteracy on display.
It was a joke that whoosh over your head.

I contrasted two unlike things using a simile.

"Red hairing" and pun

In other words, no one believed it was a pun including some of your fellow Progressives.

Why are you so slow at figuring out the use of literal devices?
