    I'll ask again. Was that a riddle? "Post #2". Supposed to mean something? Because it doesn't.

    I'm sorry. I'll leave the chuckle for others.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    Explosion at Power Plant Responsible for D.C. Area Outages

    WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — The White House, State Department and areas throughout D.C. and Maryland lost power Tuesday afternoon due to an explosion at an area power plant.

    The power went out at the White House for nearly 10 seconds while the State Department conducted its press briefing in the dark. The Justice Department’s power also went down.

    This inspired the best tweet I've seen in a while:

    I think it means that some people come on DebatePolitics to criticize people for making things political.

    I'm just going to hazard a guess about what happened. Hillary was practicing her speech to announce her candidacy and just got to the part about 'open, transparent and accountable government' when lightning struck.

    Of course. So there was no point to your post to me? Just looking for my attention? Okay, you got it, but please next time make it worth my while to read you posts to me please.

    If that's what he wants to say, he needs to find a more straightforward way of saying what's on his partisan mind.

    My first reaction upon reading the headline was 'I guess Obama shouldn't have sent his EPA to attack the coal power generation', but then read the story to find out it was a small transformer fire.

    So a non-issue. These things happen all the time. It's why it's a power grid and not a single power line. Power was re-routed quick enough.
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    That's pretty good there Luther. LOL. Write fiction much? Maybe should consider it.
