I remember it well. I had a '56 VW oval window sunroof (still have it on the property), if there was an open gas station, there was a line. Where I went was a guy had a V-dub repair shop & he sold me gas. Was never actually 'open' but he allus had gas. He had an old gas pump, only went to 49.9˘ gal, had it set to 27˘ gal & charged 54˘/gal. Gas fill was under bonnet, before I was full (10.5 gal) there'd be a line behind me, , , ,

Far from a great president, but if something good gets done; something good gets done.

A good summary metaphor may be the Chelsea Manning case. He claims he will be a friend to whistleblowers, we say 'yay this guy!' The opposite turns out to be true, he throws manning in jail for forty years, we loose faith. Lets Manning out after seven years as one of his final acts, well thats the right thing, just way late.
Exactly. He's turning into candidate Obama(2008).

What a shame Chelsea Manning spent one day in jail let alone 7 fucking years. She should have parades in her honor. Snowden too.

Ok. What a shame Bradley Manning spent one day in jail let alone 7 fucking years. He should have parades in his honor. Snowden too.

snowden was never gonna get pardonned by obama. manning stayed, went through the system, and took her licks. snowden took refuge with an enemy. not saying i wouldn't do the same, but from the perspective of the commander in chief there's a big difference.

I agree. Unfortunately the status quo is now so firmly in place that exposing our criminal acts is seen as being disloyal. And going the proper channels means a quicker sentence.
