What Is Wrong With This Picture?

Authorities in Georgia on Friday tore down a monument to Soviet dictator Josef Stalin in his birthplace of Gori because a memorial to Stalin has no place in the Georgia of the 21st Century, said Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili.

God bless them.

Yet, here in Bedford, Virginia, a statue of Stalin has been erected for a National D-Day Memorial...

What kind of insanity is this?

I fear that we may have reached the tipping point, people.

I hope I'm wrong and the country comes to its senses come November.

Our country is a$$ backwards. This ticks me off. Yes, this may be the tipping point.

Teresa: It seems like everyday we get a new assault on our freedoms and/or a new insult to our intelligence. I hope we're wrong about the tipping point.

Brooke: Lately, every day is wonderland.

Birdwoman: Don't give them any ideas...

Ananda Girl: I fear that we've reached the tipping point or we are poised at the precipice. Scary stuff.

Z: I hear ya. I feel the same way. How many times can you state the stupifyingly obvious?

That's why I sometimes retreat into humor, science, or science fiction. Anything to get away from the gloom and doom of Obamaworld.

WomanHonorThyself: Unfortunately, it's not a joke.

At least the Supreme Court gave us a decision to be happy about on this Monday!
