Amanda Carpenter:
Oh, how Obama wants to pretend the shutdown was about the debt ceiling. It was the Obamacare Shutdown. that is what it was about.

GOP Comedian:
So are we supposed to grateful that Obama is trying to fix a problem that never should have existed in the first place?

Jonathan S. Tobin:
Obama explains #ObamaCare pledge lie by saying it was true for a lot of people even if it was a lie for some. Oh, now I get it.

Dave Rubin:
When you answer a question just by talking and talking until nobody is paying attention anymore it should be called, 'Pulling an Obama.'

And the one made of the stuff of both hilarity and dream...

Ross Appel:
We are witnessing the end of the Obama presidency. Complete lack of capability and credibility both home and abroad.

The judge, however, discounted DHS’ arguments for preventing the release of information."

"In addition, this "free trade" agreement will push the ongoing deindustrialization of America into overdrive.  Every year, we buy hundreds of billions of dollars more stuff from the rest of the world than they buy from us.  Tens of thousands of American businesses have been lost as a result, and millions of good jobs have been shipped overseas."

"The “crime” of the student, an American citizen who was in England to advance his studies, was drinking a beer. "

COMMENTARY
Although the video reminds that the incident involved was allegedly perpetrated by a Muslim street patrol [the incident itself occurred several months ago, but the police have only now released the video to the public], a word to the wise of possibility might often be a wise word indeed.

However, that tiny word 'allegedly' as yet underpins a most excellent necessity, and one which we must remind ourselves to remind...

COMMENTARY
While 'vegetative state' is a term that does not distinguish between brain dead and mere coma, we are at an uneasy point in modern culture regarding exactly when an individual has truly died, but is merely being kept alive via machines, and when that individual's life might still be viable.

I link the above to its necessary connection to organ donation for a reason.

And remind that a 'wake' was kept, back in the day, because people who seemed dead might waken...

And the practice at least allowed the hope of waking prior to being buried.
