Velel,,,Vel,...Velella V...Velell...a Vel, just their luck that the person that named them had a stuttering problem. Why didn't they just call them "Velella".

I do agree with -Lea- that they are beautiful.

Kind of like New York, New York, so nice they named it twice.

There is underground ocean. Bigger than surface ocean. When japan's desaster occurred , dead sea serpants washed to shore. This waste seeped into the deepest abist , killing & driving unseen species out of their home ???? Just an opinion .°_`

Aren't tee baggrz clever?

Bush didn't bring a wash of strange sea creatures onto the beach.

He started two incompetent, lying invasions which resulted in global hotspots which will be worse thanks to them for decades.

And not coincidentally, these two invasions coincided with the complete freeze of the US economy and banking system...the result of which was a vast wiping out of the assets of pension funds and hundreds of thousands of home foreclosures.

If there's been anything more meaningful or destructive to the US since Vietnam you be sure to let us know.

So you can let me know what Obama has done that is worse than:

Freezing the entire US (and basically world) economy, wiping out the retirement funds for tens of millions of Americans and leading to the nastiest housing bubble burst imaginable, and;

Two lying, massive, costly invasions which will leave those areas of the globe worse for decades to come. Not to mention all the foreign and domestic ramifications of the multiple abuses of the "war on turrur."

You spell it out - what has been worse than those things? I don't chase down little youtubes...which are provided without the basic intellectual consideration of a description.

What do you think Ukraine is about?

I asked you a simple question and you could not muster any sort of coherent reply.

You don't know anything about Ukraine, but however bad it is there for them Obama as an individual Executive didn't start it, and it's not impacting US citizens as did the freeze of the economy or those two lying invasions - Iraq or Afghanistan under that Bush. It's not having any effects on the US that are near comparable to those things.

The US assured Russia around the USSR's disintegration (and after) that neither it nor NATO would encroach on certain former, Soviet republics. The US went back on its word multiple times (Bush Sr. did not do that - that happened after him.) As in Syria, Ukraine is a proxy war between elements in the US government who want to force Obama to be more overtly militaristic in his foreign policy on the one hand and Putin on the other. It is another instance of nascent, more fully developed resource wars around the globe.

The real issue for the US with ISIS and Afghanistan and Iraq and Syria and Ukraine presently is Obama's plan to reduce the number of concurrent wars the government will fund the Pentagon to wage at once. Much of this, from a US perspective, is about significant reductions in US military spending, and the military industrial/profiteer complex not liking that. So chaos in various parts of the globe, aggravated by covert, US actions beyond the full knowledge of the US government as a whole, presents a "need" to keep US military funding where it has been.

I think you're just another racist, ill informed, lying tee baggrz.

It's funny how teabaggers and their puppets, the Republicans, can never seem to admit to his evil doings.

This one vaguely opined that Bush the lesser was "bad," but that Obama is "worse."

Of course that's ridiculous...unless you think having a black family in the White House is "worse" on its face, as it were.

The BRICS have set up a new financial system that ain't Monetarist/Keynesian. Obama is blocking the Glass-Steagall bill in Congress that could be a way to join the new system, rather than potential WWIII for fantastical perceived dollar hegamony.
