Here are some other highlights and headlines that I noticed over at Ransom Notes Radio:
A new telephone survey shows that roughly 83 percent of Americans would like English to be the official language of the United States. Another 7 percent responded “no understand”; and another ten percent kept hitting “2” to hear the question in Spanish.
John Kerry says that climate change is the biggest threat we currently face… I mean, a bunch of terrorists instigating a genocidal slaughter in the Middle East probably runs a distant second. (The threat of the Lorax going extinct probably runs a tight third.)
Here’s the headline: U.S. declares Yazidi intervention a success, says rescue mission unneeded. And, if the US government says it was a “success”, then clearly we can throw up that “mission accomplished” banner we have left over from Obama’s troop withdrawal.
Seriously? Barack Obama – the guy who is busy golfing, swimming, and dancing through world-wide unrest – called Israel’s Prime Minister “reckless”; and refused to ship American missiles to the Israelis. The chutzpa!
While everything else is going on in the world (including race riots in Ferguson, MO) the Obamas spent the night dancing away with some Hollywood big shots… Because 17 room vacation homes in Martha’s Vineyard, daily golf games, and getting down with the rich and famous is really what the Presidency is all about.
