Our Current President is Lower than Pond Scum


Two star Major General Harold Greene was killed in Afghanistan on August 8, 2014 while serving his country with pride for 34 years. He was the highest ranking officer in the military killed in action since the Vietnam war.


President Obama has not mentioned anything in regards to this highly decorated soldier yet he spoke highly of Robin Williams who committed suicide. 

General Greene was buried August 14 in Arlington National Cemetery. Neither the President, Vice President, Secretary of State nor Secretary of Defense attended the funeral.


President Obama was on vacation, playing golf at Martha's Vineyard. No flags were ordered to half mast for General Greene's death, yet they were for Whitney Houston who, like Robin Williams,   committed suicide.


This is very offensive and disrespectful to the veterans who have served our great country. But it should not be surprising.

Joe, When are you going to learn?

President Obama has not mentioned anything in regards to this highly decorated soldier

See his remarks on Gen. Greene at the signing of Bernie Sander's VA bill.

Neither the President, Vice President, Secretary of State nor Secretary of Defense attended the funeral.

Chuck Hagel attended as well as Ray Odierno, Army COS.

No flags were ordered to half mast for General Greene's death, yet they were for Whitney Houston

Obama DID NOT order flags flown at half staff for Whitney. Gov. Chris Christie DID for her in New Jersey.

The proper Christian thing to do is apologize to your readers for repeating these lies. Then, pray for forgiveness to God and Glenn.

This is how you look foolish when you simply cut and paste from right wing nut jobs.

Rusty Shackelford said...

Pond Scum? Well oh well, isn't that special!!

Dave Miller said...

Don't hold your breath waiting Craig... The style here, as I've learned it from both joe and Glenn is never retreat or admit a wrong and always call into question any verifiable facts or evudence others bring up... After all, those facts could be false...

Xavier Onassis said...

Lower than pond scum doesn't even make any sense. Pond scum floats on the surface, so...

Glenn E. Chatfield said...

I don't care who ordered flags to be half-staff for entertainers -- it should not be done.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Joe, this is disgraceful!

I'm referring to the shame of passing along, through your blog, misinformation about this subject.


"Neither the President, Vice President, Secretary of State nor Secretary of Defense attended the funeral.Secretary of State nor Secretary of Defense attended the funeral."

Are you trying to compete with FAUX NOOZ?

Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel attended Maj. Gen. Greene's funeral.

That lie has been all over the conservative blogs and news sites.

May I ask if you guys EVER check the veracity of your emails before you post them?

If you don't, then you should so that you avoid the embarrassment of looking like you've been had.

Dave Miller said...

Glenn, I bet most of us would agree, but as a point of fact, it was GOP Governor Chris Christie who ordered flags at half staff, not President Obama as the post implies.

I'm guessing he did so because she was born in Newark, New Jersey...

Glenn E. Chatfield said...

Dave,

I understand who did it, but he was still wrong

Babs said...

Pond Scum is RIGHT Joe, You nailed it and what creeps such as Shaw Kenawe said dosn't change it one bit.......And Jimmy Carter is as happy as can be knowing he can die without being the worst President in US history. Obama is all talk,he is a wimp.

Dave Miller said...

Good call Babs... Why should the truth matter to conservatives like yourself...

Duckys here said...

Joe and Glenn, hear the voices?

Those are your corner men yelling, "Stay down"!

You messed up, Joe but remember, the left is here to help you live the life of the mind.

Shaw Kenawe said...

"Babs said...
Pond Scum is RIGHT Joe, You nailed it and what creeps such as Shaw Kenawe said doesn't change it one bit..."

This is quite interesting. XO rightly pointed out that "lower than pond scum" makes no sense, since pond scum is not "low," it appears on the top of pond water.

And I informed Joe, with evidence, that he was wrong in stating that the Secretary of Defense did not attend Major General Greene's funeral.

And yet the troll who calls him/herself "Babs," says Joe "nailed" it?

This is why we can't have nice things.

People like "Babs" and others who refuse to look at reality are the problem. They refuse to see reality because it is not what they want it to be.

But it doesn't really matter. Babs and his/her ilk have no influence on anything. But they do give us a laugh.

Joe, my friend, where are you? Are you deliberately avoiding us and what we have lovingly pointed out to you.

Please do not feel bad about this. I make mistakes on my blog as well and I correct them. No shame in that. The shame would be in sticking to what "Babs" wrote, because it's just not true.

Joe Calton said...

I love me some "Jo Joe" but sometimes he takes the lazy, angry conservative path and blindly cuts and pastes some other lunatic's idiotic ramblings.

Like that annoying judge person or that Whittle idiot.

I don't give a crap what those buffoons think. I want to know what Joe thinks.

Sometimes we get that. Sometimes we don't.

Joe's blog, Joe's rules.

Shaw Kenawe said...

I guess Joe's rules on his blog sort of mirrors the old Nixon rule:

"It's not a lie when a conservative blogger publishes it."

Dave Miller said...

Let's be fair folks... Joe has not evaded the issue yet... he does work long hours and may not have had a chance to respond...

I know he posted already, but he does future post things when he knows he'll be away.

So far he has not followed the route of other bloggers who basically so what, it's still true, or have made no attempt to even acknowledge the falsehoods they've posted, or allowed to be posted.

Always better to error on the side of caution and give grace...

Rusty Shackelford said...

Oh fer cryin' out loud, would you give it a rest with the whining for a while? Racism will never be entirely eliminated. What a shock. And if being a white man in America is such a trauma for poor, put-upon little you then you are welcome to try your luck somewhere else. Just lay off the dramatics, it’s getting to be booing just like Shaw Kenya.

Bill Barth said...

Looks like Rusty's been sniffing bathroom freshener cuz no one here's talking about racism.

Ben Gazi said...

Looks like Bill Barth has nothing better to do on a Sat night but bitch about other people...

Dave Miller said...

Rusty, who brought up racism? Anyone here? Conservatives like you are always saying us libs are constantly bringing it up and yet frequently, as you've proved, more often it is folks like you trying to inject it into the conversation...

Now well return to waiting to see when, and if Joe will acknowledge that he posted incorrect, factually inaccurate info on his blog attacking President Obama...

Shaw Kenawe said...

Dave, it's pretty evident that Joe will NOT correct nor acknowledge his error in stating that the Secy. of Defense did not attend Maj. Gen. Greene's funeral.

He and many other conservative bloggers are very quick to trash our American president, but Joe's reluctance to correct the false information he has posted here is evidence that his and other conservatives' dislike of this president is based on more than just policy disagreements.


There's another phrase for what is going on here: bearing false witness.

I believe there's a Commandment that deals with this.

But I guess God's laws don't apply to certain folks when they're intent on character assassination of this president.

Dave Miller said...

Shaw, I was holding out hope that Joe might respond at some point to the evidence showing that his post was at least inaccurate regarding President Obama.

Until he personally responded on one if his other posts, I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he was auto posting.

Sadly, we now know that to be untrue.

Joe, this post is inaccurate and conservatives have come here supporting the lies you published. You been back to your blog and, despite the evidence, have for some reason, decided to let the lies stand.

Common decency would demand at least some response, your faith would, or at least should demand more.

Why the silence Joe?

I remember when Z once got caught in a like fashion. Once she was alerted to the total inaccuracy of her post, she deleted it. While her and I disagree on most things political, I've always respected her for that.

Dave Miller said...

By the way Joe, regarding flags at half staff for General Greene, flags in his home state of New York were ordered flown as such by Gov. Cuomo...

If you care...
