Who is going to tell Obama no more war?

President Barack ObamaI miss the old days of 2008 when we’d get word that Candidate Obama was visiting Colorado and we’d head up to put our antiwar message under his nose. These days he visits Denver to sign the new Stimulus Bill –why Denver, is the Denver Mint doing the honors printing the money?– and we sit flat-footed in front of our TV. On the same day the UN reported that civilian casualties in Afghanistan are up 40% over last year. On the day the Pentagon has announced a “remissioning” of 8,000 additional US Marines, and 4,000 US Army men to Afghanistan, as part of Obama’s surge. And we can’t say Obama hadn’t made his Afghan warmongering intentions clear.

What’s the matter? The term redeployment didn’t cut it? “Remissioning?”

    They’re all out too drinking all that good B.O. kool-aid for us to be able to get any protest activity going today, Eric. I didn’t even try. Didn’t want to get tasered either.

    Just a minor point of fact, Eric. The U.S. Mint only makes coinage and medals. Printing currency is done by the Bureau of Printing and Engraving.

    Issuing $787B in coins would stimulate jobs.
