What a moronic libtard thing to say. Why don't you talk about Obama and his hope for a socialist America?
Even if it was a moronic thing to say the damage our previous president and vice have done is far worse than our current president! That cannot be denied!
The people pushing political viewpoints on others are usually the most uninformed...aka all of you.

Just as a general rule of thumb what percentage of my news should I get from condescending social media posts from strangers and friends in the name of raising awareness? :D
I love and treasure individuals as I meet them, I loathe and despise the groups they identify with and belong to.

did sort of go off the rails. anyone who thinks obama is a communist or a socialist or uses those words interchangeably is likely just completely ignorant of the meaning of the words. He is probably a progressive capitalist, as are most Americans i would think.

to ignore the impact that the US has had on degrading infrastructure in the region is probably also a little myopic. Certainly we will at some point have to acknowledge our role in the destruction of some key parts of the cultural heritage, and likely we should applaud our role in some preservation efforts. But certainly the illegal trade in antiquities is a big deal and was funded for centuries by the west, but that is likely a different discussion.

I may be a bit to pragmatic on this one though. We have seen so many regimes attempt to eradicate contradictory history that is just seems to be par for the course. 1984 does such a nice job of bringing the ancient practice into the semi modern era. I suppose it is interesting though. In the modern era it seems so hard to destroy information that the new strategy is not to burn or destroy but to dilute. You put out so much dis"information" as to dilute the reality, i.e. dont look at that over there, think about what color this dress is.

The reason the Bush family is where they are is solely because of stolen art, stolen heirlooms, and stolen money.
The US Govt actually had to shut them down for laundering money for the Nazis.
That administration bombed the fudge out of Iraq.

I guess where I was a little off was the fact that Bush and Cheney got filthy rich doing it, and Isis hasn't killed 500 THOUSAND IRAQI PEOPLE YET.
