Stars and Stripes in Three Yellows

Following Republican outrage that President Obama secured the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl who had been a Taliban captive for five years in Afghanistan by trading five Guantanamo detainees, Republicans today demanded an investigation into the death of Osama bin Laden. "We believe Seal Team Six violated international law with their illegal incursion into Pakistani air space at night and that they should be prosecuted," said an anonymous spokesperson for the Republican National Committee. "And that whole stealth helicopter/ night vision goggle thing was totally unfair. This President will let nothing stand in his way of getting our POWs back, pursuing terrorists wherever they may be, and providing for the care of our wounded veterans. It's about time somebody stopped him." .................. .............Republicans will soon announce they are in favor of global warming......."It's just too cold sometimes," a spokesperson said. "We are tired of all the posturing and having to come up with phony explanations for our opposition to real efforts to save the planet. Global warming should help warm things up." ........... ............ After starting two wars, one based on fabricated "evidence," creating tens of thousands of grievously injured Veterans, and blocking every attempt to better fund the VA Hospital system for years, Republicans are now demanding to know why there are problems at the VA....... .............. The Chinese invented gunpowder, moveable type, the compass, advanced metallurgy, ceramics, and a long list of other civilization shaping devices. You think they'd have come up with something better than chopsticks..... ....... And another mass shooting has taken the lives of more of our young people. Massacres of children are a price gun fetishists are willing to pay.
