#1. Obama supporters and the media tout finding and capturing him as a huge accomplishment, even though he was giving interviews to Reuters, the Times, and CNN in cafes and an airport.

Does anyone believe that this administration won't offer him a deal (see the Guantanamo 5, where he should be sent) to say that the attack was in response to an internet video for Obama and Hillary's benefit?

#6 As the cover-up intensifies by the most competent, transparent, and honest administration ever, consider that these geniuses are the ones who will control your confidential medical records under Obamacare.

11. THIS IS NOT NEWS TO THE ASSOCIATED OBAMA PRESS

Price Index for Meats, Poultry, Fish & Eggs Rockets to All-Time High


The seasonally-adjusted price index for meats, poultry, fish, and eggs hit an all-time high in May, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). But of course our government doesn't include these products in the basket of goods to determine whether inflation has risen so don't worry about inflation unless you have to buy your own food instead of getting fed by the White House Chef. http://cnsnews.com/news/article/...

12. HATE THE 1%! Wealthy Clintons Use Trusts to Limit Estate Tax They Back

Bill and Hillary Clinton have long supported an estate tax to prevent the U.S. from being dominated by inherited wealth. That doesn’t mean they want to pay it.

To reduce the tax pinch, the Clintons are using financial planning strategies befitting the top 1 percent of U.S. households in wealth. These moves, common among multimillionaires, will help shield some of their estate from the tax that now tops out at 40 percent of assets upon death.

The Clintons created residence trusts in 2010 and shifted ownership of their New York house into them in 2011, according to federal financial disclosures and local property records. http://www.businessweek.com/news...

Fun is fun and in this case it has run its course; sure would Bee nice if you would Bee gone. Go learn the pollination dance and you can participate in the Squash parade in Grady.

TheBee

Funny, people been saying that about you for 1 year and 5 months.

rukidding

Nice, and it only took you 10 days! Lani, Bee is Beeing mean with stinging comments.

Lanivan

I agree, ru. Notice how The Bee never gets moderated, unlike you and me, even with his pattern of turning honey into a saccharin, wasp-like sting?

Maybe he has an under-endowed proboscis? A lack of self-antennae? Too much lime in his coconut?

rukidding

Or, maybe all of the above? Hey Bee, you need a keeper.

TheBee

You guys sound like my grampa.

Vladtheimp

Sexist comment!

Lanivan

I'll say. The Bee doesn't know the difference between the 'queen' and the 'worker'.
