166 Dead in Gaza: Can I Get a Condemnation!?!

We like to keep it light here. Sometimes you can’t. There are 166 Palestinians dead and counting, an estimated 77% of those are civilian, as Israel continues pounding the Gaza strip. The UN has condemned it, so where is Public Servant Obama on this?

Obama reiterated U.S. condemnation of rocket fire into Israel by Hamas and reaffirmed Israel’s right to defend itself against the attacks, the White House said.

OK. So three dead Israelis = 127.82 dead civilian Palestinians? I’m no math major, but that seems a tad excessive. Can I get a condemnation!?!

Snowden Is “Peacier” than Obama!

Snowden Is “Peacier” than Obama!

Considering the “Drone President” won the Nobel Peace Prize, I can’t help but wonder if Snowden hopes to get passed over.

STAVANGER, Norway (AP) — Two Norwegian lawmakers say they have jointly nominated former NSA contractor Edward Snowden for the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize.

Socialist lawmakers Baard Vegard Solhjell, a former environment minister, and Snorre Valen said Wednesday the public debate and policy changes “in the wake of Snowden’s whistleblowing has contributed to a more stable and peaceful world order.”

Being nominated just means Snowden will be one of scores of names that the Nobel committee will consider for the prestigious award.
