Some of my fellow posters obviously didn't read enough of what you wrote to understand that it is, technically, a rant. I get it, you're sick of our "leaders" acting (and doing a damned poor job of it, too) in order to sway public opinion.
When actors cry, and fake tears are put in their eyes, their eyes remain clear. Real crying reddens the eyes and makes the nose run. Obviously our faker-in-chief was acting. Anybody who bombs innocents with drones and doesn't bat an eye cannot make me believe that he will cry on television for kids he doesn't even know.
The old saying "you can tell when a politician is lying just by him opening his mouth" is very true. I expect more horrific incidents, more nauseating speeches and more crocodile tears from our dear leaders in 2013. How truly sad that they, and their agenda, are so blatantly obvious.edit on 29-12-2012 by FissionSurplus because: (no reason given)
