Remember back in 2008 when Obama responded to a reporter by saying he just wanted to eat his waffle?
That was all I could think of when I saw this video on Weasel Zippers.
Apparently, the guy who uploaded this video to YouTube feels the same way.
Here’s how he describes it…
Here’s a great little glimpse at how the media treats Hillary and how she treats them. In this little clip a reporter tosses her a softball about Trump, basically asking her, “go ahead and tell us how bad Trump is.”
But rather than take the offer from her complacent fans in the media, she rebuffs it saying, “I think I’m gonna sit down and have some pie!” This reminds me of Obama’s “Can I just finish my waffle?” moment from 2008. If either had been a Republican, the media would be relentless in attacking instead of offering softball questions.
You know, if more journalists were like Jake Tapper, our media would be much more balanced.

Defiant Greeks reject EU demands as Syriza readies IOU currency
Greek voters have rejected the austerity demands of Europe’s creditor powers by a stunning margin, sweeping aside warnings that this could lead to the collapse of the banking system and a return to the drachma.
Early returns in the historic referendum showed the No side -Oxi in Greek =- running at 61pc versus 39pc for the Yes side as the Greek people turned out en masse to vent their anger over six years of economic depression and national humiliation. A volcanic revolt appeared to have swept through Greek islands…
Top Syriza officials say they are considering drastic steps to boost liquidity and shore up the banking system, should the ECB refuse to give the country enough breathing room for a fresh talks.
“If necessary, we will issue parallel liquidity and California-style IOU’s, in an electronic form. We should have done it a week ago,” said Yanis Varoufakis, the finance minister.
IOU’s are as good as real money, right?
Think it can’t happen here? Guess again.

Grateful Dead fans: Surprisingly Republican
The Grateful Dead are playing the final show of their “Fare Thee Well” Tour on Sunday in Chicago, and if that means anything to you, you’re more likely a Republican than a Democrat.
What? America’s pioneering jam band is more a Republican thing than a Democratic one? Well, kinda.
A poll conducted by Public Opinion Strategies and the Mellman Group found the band has a 46 percent hard name ID (i.e. whether people can judge it favorably or unfavorably) among Republicans, compared with 37 percent among Democrats, and 35 percent among independents.
It makes perfect sense if you think about it. Their video for U.S. Blues is about an inch away from being a Schoolhouse Rock video describing the Boston Tea Party.

So this happened today. How sad…

Have you ever seen a fireworks display filmed by a drone?
I’m from New England where July 4th wouldn’t be complete without a parade featuring bagpipes.

Have a safe and happy holiday.
I wrote about this video at Legal Insurrection today, you can read the full post here.
At least watch the video. It’s full of facts that you never ever hear from our totally objective media. I have a feeling these truths aren’t being taught on many college campuses either.
Some of these are downright painful to watch and there’s plenty of swearing as you might expect.
Please be careful if you’re planning to use fireworks this year.
