RECENTLY PROCLAIMED
FROM ATOP MT. SINAI

(translation: recently coughed up at a San Francisco fundraiser by the Obamassiah)

You go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, and like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. So it's not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.

Interesting site. In the broken heart graphic on the upper right-hand side, the right-hand segment, presumably intended as a counterpart to the American one on the left, is not a recognisable part of any past or present Iraqi flag. See wikipedia's "Flag of Iraq" entry for the correct depiction.

The flag on the right-hand part of the graphic (a logo I have borrowed from marketers)is the Blue Star Mother's Flag, a banner in use in the United States since World War I, to indicate that a son in the household is a member of the military in a time of war. Since I have two sons in the military now, further down the column you can see the double blue-star banner. (Not available for the Iraq logo, but only one son is there at present.)
