    I didn't like the other diary because context matters, and it wasn't as if President Obama mentioned Ray Kelly out of nowhere.

    But flipping the bird? No. Just having fun on a Friday afternoon.

    And why would I ever flip off FDR? He was awesome most of the time -- you know, the whole saved the country/saved the world thing?

    How about I believe in the unlucky ones?

      thing. . .

      I'd like to start a new meme: "No means no" is a misnomer. It should be "Only 'Yes' means yes." Just because someone doesn't say "No" doesn't mean they've given consent. If she didn't say "Yes", there is no consent.

      •  Heh, yeah (0+ / 0-)

        That pesky Executive Order 9066.
        Just a minuscule 100,000+ victim blemish in the legacy of an otherwise stellar progressive.

      •  I know. I see so many die hard "FDRbots" (4+ / 0-)

        around here constantly defending the internment of 100,000 innocent people.

        They claim anyone who doesn't think it was the right thing to do must a Bircher posing as a Democrat.

        Happens all the time.

        Mr. Universe is a known degenerate Robotophile, and his sources include former Browncoat Traitors. What is their agenda in leaking top secret information about the Reavers and endangering us all?

            We constantly hear from defenders of the most obscene abuses of the Obama Administration about every evil act other Presidents sanctioned, as if it were somehow undercutting arguments against evil acts the Obama Administration has sanctioned.

            It's a spurious argument.  No one defends the illegal wiretaps that were rampant under Kennedy.  No one defends the Japanese Internment.  No one defends the Palmer Raids under Wilson.  

            Well, ok, none of the people critical of the abuses of the Obama Administration defends those things.
