    FYI, we are talking about the funeral for a 95 year-old dude. Not many tears at that one.


    Nonetheless, if I was Michelle, Barack would be on sleeping the couch for a month.

    1. In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915-1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves against their ethnic-cleansing government, were arrested and exterminated.

    2. In 1929, the former Soviet Union established gun control as a means of controlling the “more difficult” of their citizens. From 1929 to the death of Stalin, 40 million Soviets met an untimely end at the hand of various governmental agencies as they were arrested and exterminated.

    3. After the rise of the Nazi’s, Germany established their version of gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, 13 million Jews, gypsies, homosexuals, the mentally ill, and others, who were unable to defend themselves against the “Brown Shirts”, were arrested and exterminated. Interestingly, the Brown Shirts were eventually targeted for extermination themselves following their blind acts of allegiance to Hitler. Any American military and police would be wise to grasp the historical significance of the Brown Shirts’ fate.

    4. After Communist China established gun control in 1935, an estimated 50 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves against their fascist leaders, were arrested and exterminated.

    5. Closer to home, Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayans, unable to defend themselves against their ruthless dictatorship, were arrested and exterminated.

    6. Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves from their dictatorial government, were arrested and exterminated.

    genocide 57. Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million of the “educated” people, unable to defend themselves against their fascist government, were arrested and exterminated.

    8. In 1994, Rwanda disarmed the Tutsi people and being unable to defend themselves from their totalitarian government, nearly one million were summarily executed.

    The total numbers of victims who lost their lives because of gun control is approximately 70 million people in the 20th century. The historical voices from 70 million corpses speak loudly and clearly to those Americans who are advocating for a de facto gun ban. Governments murdered four times as many civilians as were killed in all the international and domestic wars combined. Governments murdered millions more people than were killed by common criminals and it all followed gun control
    Nice cut and paste, has nothing to do with it happening in the US. You are just mongering fear.

    A few issues with this....

    1) The photographer isn't part of the US press, he works for AFP.

    2) No one expected this to show Obama in a negative light, including the photographer.

    3) No one today would listen to a request by a head of state not to publish unflattering images.

    4) Ironically, the US press is criticizing the Obama administration for basically kicking press photographers out of the White House and many events. They have WH staff photographers take the pictures, which they then distribute. (e.g. White House Transparency Is 'Orwellian Image Control' - Business Insider)

    This picture isn't a selfie either. A selfie is a picture of YOURSELF (only yourself) taken by yourself. Hence "selfie."

    You've already been schooled on the difference between selfie and just another photo. But this wasn't a "celebration" it was a memorial. Take a look at the Obama photo in the OP, look at the folks sitting in rows above and below him. They're not celebrating but somber faces. Obama and his buds are the only ones "celebrating" in those photos.
