If you haven’t seen this video of the tsunami from a guy who was standing a few feet from it, you should really check it out. It’s rare that a force of nature of this magnitude is documented like this. Tsunami scientists will find this footage invaluable.
In other news:
PJ Crowley, the State Department’s spokesperson resigned yesterday under pressure for some intemperate remarks he made about the detention conditions of Bradley Manning. It seems that Obama was inconvenienced by having to ask questions about Manning’s state at his press conference on Friday and he was most seriously not amused. FWIW, what Manning did was illegal but following his due process rights and treating him well before his trial is what Americans do. That’s because it’s the right thing to do to other human beings. It costs this country nothing to play by the rules. Rules, I might add, that we used to hold up as examples to the rest of the world. So, Crowley was right, Manning’s detention has been “stupid and ridiculous”. If Obama has been the driving force behind it, then the ridiculousness and stupidity rubs off on him. One can almost hear the sun king plaintively whine, “I will not be MOCKED!” Off with Crowley’s head. Yeah, that will cut down on the mocking.
Oooo, and now the left is speaking out. He can’t take a little criticism? What did they ever see in Obama? Beats me. He’s always been this way. Remember how his campaign went after people who said perfectly innocuous things and turned them into poster boys for the KKK? Ahhh, yes, those were the days. Or remember when Clinton delegates at the Convention were harrassed and threatened to change their votes to Obama? I remember it well. How about when his trolly minions camped in our threads and applied bone crushing peer pressure to us after calling us fat, ugly, uneducated, low class sows? Such terms of endearment. They were so loving and kind.
Hey, this is the Obama culture. If you don’t like someone, call them names, like “bitter knitters”, push their voters out of the caucus room doors, steal their delegates, threaten their careers, enforce conformity and uniformity. Haven’t you guys been paying attention? They think you’ll just end up blaming Hillary.
And now, I must be off to work. The end is coming fast. It feels like a breakup.
