The Washington Post: If we can't ignore it,

we'll try to bury it.
Washington Post columnist Patrick Pexton made a rather startling admission in the paper’s Sunday edition: The Post never meant for their recent story about how President Obama’s health care law expands the budget deficit to become a viral Internet sensation. In fact, they deliberately tried to bury the story.
Putting the story (inside the paper) on A3 was the right judgment for a print publication. (Story author Lori) Montgomery urged her editors, correctly, not to put it on the front page: it wasn’t worth that.
Translation: "It looks bad for Obama and Obamacare, so we didn't REALLY want people to see it."

I wonder how ABC will reconcile this with their "No injury to Zimmerman!" video? If they even take notice of it, that is.

"We REALLY don't want people to vote on Obama's record!" Well, if I supported the National Socialist Democrats, I wouldn't either.

So Australia has the kind of gun laws the VPC and Brady groups would like to see here, but they still can't keep the bad guys from getting guns... kind of like those islands of (fG)Britain, isn't it?

Putting this all together, we find that the monetary benefit of guns (by way of DGUs) is roughly 1.02 trillion dollars per year. Trillion. With a ‘T’.

A fine example of why I became so disgusted with major media: they throw out crap like this, and insist people trust it to be true.

Oh, bleep, she's right... and I want one too.
