Welcome to Obama's Bizarro World

If you can make reason out of the Bizarro world, you need a job in DC. Preferably right before all of Capital Hill is exiled to Mars.

When Satire Becomes Reality: Welcome to Bizarro World

Thousands of downtown DC protesters blast Obama AP
Throngs of people waved U.S. flags and held signs reading "Go Green Recycle Congress" and "Obama Bin Lyin.'" Men wore colonial costumes as they listened to speakers who warned of "judgment day" — Election Day 2010.

The World Health Organization says suicide is a leading cause of death worldwide, and one of the three leading causes of death for young people under 25. To mark World Suicide Prevention Day, which falls on September 10, the World Health Organization says there are measures people and society can take to save thousands of people from meeting a self-inflicted violent death.

America needs more opportunities

It used to be that 40 percent of American wage workers in the private sector were union members, when all that was needed was a good union job for one parent per household. This was enough to win a place in the middle class.
