Somewhere in a parallel universeSubmitted by SteveO24 on Sat, 08/24/2013 - 00:01
I saw this comment on a neocon/lib website and just had to share it.
.. somewhere in a parallel universe, the Republicans ran Ron Paul against Barack Obama. And, he won. By a landslide! In that distant parallel universe, Edward Snowdon's tapped out his credit cards living in Cuppertino making US$75K working for Apple. There was no CIA overthrow of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. There was a roundup of shadow government insiders, and they're awaiting trial, facing capitol punishment for fraud, malfeasance and treason. A prominent group of Wall Street Money changers were arrested, jailed, and await trial and sentencing over the Panic of 2008. Bradley Manning was pardoned. Julian Assange is the toast of the town, writing books like crazy, and currently on the lecture circuit. Both the Bush and Obama Administrations were handed over to the Hague, and are awaiting trial for war crimes, crimes against humanity, and violations of the Geneva convention. Ben Bernanke and Timothy Geithner were ceremoniously fired, and are currently up to their necks in legal trouble, sued by the federal government for gross incompetence. And, America is, indeed, well on the road to economic recovery, making real gains, paying off it's national debt. But, unemployment here in America is still four times what the current statistic actually reported, now that government economists are legally compelled, by statute, to report what it really is. Nobody's bombing America anymore, because America isn't bombing them. There's no NSA scandal, because there no more NSA. No reason to eavesdrop, upon the hardworking people of America, the Federal government has refunded the difference, to save Social Security for our senior citizens. Price of gasoline's a buck-fifty a gallon, and you can get a sack or oranges for a dollar. And, for the first time since George Washington, everybody in America loves their president
