Here’s a new way to get attention in the political sweepstakes. Construct a billboard where everyone can see it. Next on one half of the billboard stick in an image of Aurora, Colorado shooter James Holmeswith the above words: “Kills 12 in a movie theater with assault rifle, everyone freaks out.” Then whilst you’re still hot, you then plaster on the other half of the billboard an image of the president of the Unites States(yes kids, this is getting juicy) Barack Obama with the following slogan: “Kills thousands with foreign policy,wins Nobel Peace Prize.’

True or fiction? Oh this shit is true alright, courtesy of the Ralph Smeed Foundation that want you to understand that they’re not happy with our imperialistic notions (yes kids, that’s what this shit all boils down to) of conquering other lands (forget those fairy tales of bringing democracy to a place that doesn’t want it in the first place) with the lives of American service men.

As group member Maurice Clements states it:

We’re all outraged over that killing in Aurora, Colorado, but we’re not outraged over the boys killed in Afghanistan. We’re not saying that Obama is a lunatic.

No, not a lunatic, but then again it’s an interesting way to try and get the point home even if you have to end up resorting to self inflammatory imagery which perjures the memory of those who got caught up in the Aurora shootings. So much for passionate responses, now how about thoughtful ones?

Clements said he invites public feedback: (208) 250-2193; http://smeedonstate-ism.com/
