I love your choice, Banzai.

That girl Yousefzai is going to be the herione and role model for an entire generation of Muslim women.

And Islam is going to need them...

"There's an old saying in  Pakistan— I know it's in, Pakistan probably in  Yemin— that says, drone me once, shame on — shame on you. Drone me — you can't get droned again."

ADOPT A DRONE POSTER

Do you have a home you can lend?
Do you have some time you can spend?
What's not to love
They're death from above
On doomsday they'll be your best friend

Debt Brother from Planet Zero and his Drone "Freedom Finders"; classic!

Vain and shallow perception driven hero worship it is.

Is Obummer going to regulate drones?

Great stuff WB7.

ZH should check this out.

Some of the parents "recently" moved there.

Could this whole thing be staged?

The other suspect initially seen handcuffed has disappeared.

There has been no photographic evidence of any kind displayed; all we see is an exterior of the bldg.

One thing I noticed: 2 feds who were at Aurora in videos are at this scene!

Within 1 hour of the shooting.

Check the archived stuff out yourself.  Now, maybe they are just similar in appearance, or.....

Point is, you cannot trust anything this government is telling you.

Outside of the terrible deaths, the worst thing about this whole affair has been the ass-f'ed "news media" who left the starting gate with crappy, lowball, worthless "reporting."

If, and it is still If, 9/11 was "planned," this event would be a piece of cake.

Time's requirements for person of the year...

 

Are you famous or well-known?

Are you a tyrant?

Do you blatantly abuse human rights and order the deaths of hundreds... thousands... millions?

Have you just recently purged your country of undesirables?

Did you suck Wall Street's pussy?

Have you waged any illegal wars?

Do you wield financial weapons of mass destruction?

Have you ensured the grounding down of some good people?

Do you have plans to expand your powers?

Have you recently bribed us?

Were your actions inspired by the following: God? Satan? Thirst for power? A generous inheritance? Pure blind luck?

Are you a king, member of royalty, or colonial waster of life and limb?

Finally, are you bat-shit crazy?

If you have ticked all of the above and such claims are verified you must be a Sith Lord.

 

And that's how Time's person of the year rolls....

A Time Lord, with apologies to Dr. Who, for the end times of America.

The Time magazine person of the year is the most influential person, not the most heroic or best or most honorable.  Stalin, Hitler, Arafat, and a host of other slime-balls have shared the "honor."  I would argue that Hitler was probably the most influential person of the 20th century, not out of admiration, but because virtually everything that occurred in world history since 1932 was influenced a little or a lot by his actions and beliefs:  WW2 (obviously), Israel, the cold war, the miriad regional wars that came later, and the list goes on.

Just because the current occupant of the white house is on that cover does not imply that he is honorable, or knowledgable, or wise.  He and his minions will be influential in our lives, for better or worse (mostly worse), for the next decade or two or longer.  He will be stuck with the implosion of our economic and political system, and history books fifty years from now will look at his administration (or Jarret's) as one of the most ill-concieved practial jokes ever played on the American public.

Thinking about this further, I would like to add that considering Debt Bro versus Malala, I feel a much greater influence emanating from the latter. A positive, rather than negative, influence.

I understand that Obama represents a milestone in American history. But frankly, that has become a hollow cliche.

For a child to speak out publicly and actively is one thing. To then survive an assassination attempt and then, at such an age, to resume speaking out in a positive way that does not hint of anger or hatred, I feel humbled by this person.

I am happy that ZH readers agree that this Malala Yousafzai is more deserving of recognition and there is hope since many others around the world feel the same way.

I am aware of that. However, substantial numbers agree with my choice. And while countless slime balls have shared the same honor, we don't have to accept this measure of human influence and greatness do we.

Instead we can ridicule the object of its adulation. That's where I come in...

Purely as a matter of historical observation, if their standard is supposed to explain the results, one can begin by asking why did Giuliani win in 2011 instead of Bin Laden?

Actually Time Magazine is exploring a new magazine that will lift its fortunes called - Despot Living. Every December they will announce their Despot of the Year - They'll just reuse the Time Magazine's Person of the Year cover of Obama.

Oh hell, not more of this.

Let me guess: The DHS snuck in and whacked those kids so Obama could come along and repeal the Second Amendment? Oh no wait not that -- so the libtards at Tresaury could send goons into every home in Amerika to confiscate weapons. No shit that's not it -- oh here so the FBI could use "gun ownership" as an excuse to break into your house and confiscate your gold stash.

How did I do? Where's my Honorary Tinfoil Medal of Excellence?

Russians look at their public schools in very much the same way Americans do. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beslan_school_hostage_crisis. To make the town and their people some type of statistic...as has been done by the media and the President who simply can't get out of their story-line's way...i'm sorry but that's total BULLSHIT in my view. As this site was the only..."news" organization that covered the Fukushima nuclear disaster so I will be watching this story as well. Granted my sources are the New York Times and Wall Street Journal and whatever all of you have the courage to "think about this one"...but i will be listening to what the authorities in Connecticut have to say about this. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ian_Fleming

Oklahoma City bombing: Eric Holder-organized sting that was allowed to...happen. Colo shooter, Sandy Hook mass murder? Both involving offspring of parents involved in international bankster rackets (Liborgate). A remarkable synchronicity and, were the outer layers of these fragrent onions stripped away, I suspect you'd once again find the bloody hands of Eric Holder...fronting for Obama/Soros and their Statist rackets.

Banzai, what about a TIME corporate person of the year? HSBC for the win?

Scratch that. ZH corporate person of the year, with all their dirty laundry hanging for all to see. It'll also probably get more reads than Time's annual farcefest.

The person-of-the-year is selected by their readers if I am not mistaken :

As far as I am concerned, this is who deserved to win and deserved the peace prize as well...but apparently not in this world. In this world, he who holds the trigger, debt or deadly, wins.
