Gee, you don't say....


So the penalty for murdering 3,000 ordinary Americans is...... nothing.

The penalty for murdering a bunch of Syrians is..... nothing.

But murder one journalist and..... off with his head!

Mr. Matthews, may I not-so-politely point out that the proper way to look at such hypocrisy would be to turn it around at your particular profession, and since lying is in some contexts punishable by imprisonment (and in others not at all, you see) the maximum penalty should always be applied to journalists who lie?

We can start with you.

Now that MBS knows that NSA and CIA are inside of his electronic communications, he can go to meat space only like OBL.

That makes him more dangerous.

You listening Chris Matthews?
Since he knows he can get away with it, why not make an example of you too?

We have other "Allies" that have done similar over the years and got a pass.
USS Liberty anyone?

The only Rational Foreign Policy requires energy independence, strategic raw materials independence, self sustainable strategic industries such as microelectronics components, balanced trade and a balanced Federal Budget.

I am still not satisfied with the Las Vegas Massacre investigation either.

Preparing to go Hunting.

We do the same thing with our so called elites.

Politicians are only in office because enuff people voted for them. Yet we put up with lies and abuse from these people even after they have been proven thieves, liars and in some cases far worse. What percentage of these people would you want to be your neighbor? Yet year in and year out they keep getting re-elected.

Movie stars only have a job because enuff of us chose to pay to watch them. They then turn around and sell causes like childhood hunger, global warming and the like. These are people we would probably like as neighbors, but they would look down their noses at us with contempt, because we simply "Don't get it". Yet we continue to pay money to watch their movies or whatever product they are shilling.

Sports stars are perhaps the worst, stadiums are built with your tax dollars (Back to the politicians) so they can practice in facilities better than many of our houses. If they had to chose between the high salary they are making to play a freaking game or the fancy facilities, most would chose to keep their salary. But they do not have to make that decision because you are paying for the facility. They might make good neighbors while they are making money, but what happens to most of them once they are no longer able to play their game?

There are too many names to add to this list, but seriously why does Bob Acosta (Or whatever his name is)still have a job at CNN? Who in the real world would want to work with such a back stabling little worm? But "he stood up to Trump" so he is brave. No he is a jackass the disrespected his fellow employees (All the other journalist in the room) and disrespected the viewing audience by trying to control the narrative. He would have been kicked out of or shunned from most social gatherings for behaving like that. But he stood up to Orange Man.

None of these people even collectively are worth a Tinkers Dam and if we had the choice we would chose even fewer to be our neighbors, yet there they are collected pay checks and praise at our expense. At least in Saudi Arabia you know your death is emanate, but at least it will be quick.
