I know that I’m not perfect and that I don’t claim to be, so before you point your fingers make sure your hands are clean.

I think this fits here rather nicely.

Kinda like his Nobel Prize that the Committee decided a year later that he shouldn't have gotten it, in the first place and if they could take it back, they would.

Obama-Distinguished Public Service Medal-GettyGetty Images
by WARNER TODD HUSTON4 Jan 201711,501

On Wednesday, President Obama added another prestigious medal to his Nobel Prize collection when he had Defense Secretary Ash Carter award him with the Department of Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service.
Secretary Carter awarded his boss with the medal on January 4 during the Armed Forces Full Honor Farewell Review for the President held at Conmy Hall, Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall in Virginia.

Carter insisted that the medal was a token of appreciation for Obama’s service as commander in chief, the Associated Press reported.

After spending the last few weeks throwing roadblocks in the path of President-elect Donald Trump and his transition team, Obama nonetheless claimed in his remarks to the members of the military in attendance that “We’ve got to make sure that during this transition period that there is a seamless passing of the baton, that there’s continuity.”

Many commenters on Knoller’s Twitter feed were incredulous at the award. Some likened the award to a much maligned “participation medal” and others were skeptical of Obama’s underling giving his own boss a medal.


This is kinda' like when Idi Amin proclaimed himself "Conqueror of the British Empire in Africa in General and Uganda in Particular"

Not quite.

http://www.snopes.com/did-obama-award-himself-a-distinguished-public-service-medal/

Perhaps you missed all the reports that showed Snopes was caught rigging their info for the Democrats?

Truthfully, I could care less what's true, or false, in the news. There's always going to be partisan reporting. I thought it was funny. Besides, I'd have to spend all of my time fact checking instead of posting crap.  [:D

"Previous recipients of the medal include former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, Steven Spielberg, and Henry Kissinger."

I thought it was funny.

Maybe you will find this funny too.  :)

Maybe you trust the Department of Defence info-machine more, then? ;)  Or did I miss the wave of disgust over self-awarded medals when this happened in 2009?  #NoDoubleStandardsHere

 :o Lighten up guys. It's Radio Chatter. Put some fun in your lives and enjoy the ride for a change. You're going to give yourselves a stroke trying to fact check everything I post. Do you really care that much about Trump or Obama, or Trudeau for that matter? These are three guys that opened themselves to this innuendo when they joined and there's absolutely SFA that any of us can do about them. So just relax, take the chuckle and move on. You shouldn't have trouble differentiating their policies and political ramifications from all the idiot things, glamour, glitz and garbage going on around them. You're smarter than that.

Unless your a fanboy ;) :rofl:

Doesn't matter what I think of any of the above.  When this was first posted, it was in the "Walts" thread, so I guess some folks (myself included) responded to that based on a thread for exposing walts.  I now see someone moved this to the "Funnies" thread - I guess now that it's here, I suppose I don't have a sense of humour  ;)

I moved it from the Walt thread, because it started going off track and getting too large. I moved it, because I realized it was the wrong fit. I moved it because, even though I thought it was funny, some didn't share my view. I moved it because, I posted as a funny, but then people got really, really serious and started all the fact checking and debating. I moved it so it wouldn't cause so much angst.There was nothing nefarious in the move. It's just a better fit. That's why Mods have a Merge and Move button. Sorry if anyone is butt hurt about the move, that wasn't the intention. Mea culpa.

However, given my propensity for posting a 10 second article without 30 minutes of fact checking, I have come up with a cunning plan.

If you see this,  :whistle: at the beginning of one of my posts, it means this:

DISCLAIMER: The preceding, posted by me, has not been fact checked. It is not based on identifiable sources, but simply my own opinion. Feel free to try change my mind, on important subjects, I’ll listen, but still may not agree with you, so don’t be offended. It’s not personal. This disclaimer will shortly be replaced with this smilie,  :whistle: at the beginning of my posts (as above) that require it. Cheers.

Hope that's agreeable to everyone and ends some of the confusion with my posts.  :salute:

Alec Baldwin just trolled Trump again by walking around New York City wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat — with the embroidered logo in Russian.

Loss of investment, loss of jobs, loss of revenue. With the auto investments, alone, he's moving/ moved back to the States, Mexico has already paid for it, so it seems. And he's not even sworn in yet. They don't have to be presented a bill in exchange for a cheque to make them pay for it. ;)

Not to mention entry fees and remittance taxes and with the current trade imbalance, not much Mexico could do about it.
