On and Poppin’: Egyptian Revolt Renews; Israeli Embassy Stormed

Poster’s Note: It seems that after the “revolution” the old boss is the same as the new, so people are back to the streets. This Israel confrontation was just a trigger.

Protesters have broken into the building housing Israel’s embassy in Egypt’s capital, Cairo, entering consular offices, officials said. Police used tear gas and gunshots were heard nearby. The ambassador has been taken to Cairo airport to be flown out of the country.

US President Barack Obama urged Egypt to protect the embassy after Israel asked Washington for help. The mission has seen protests amid a downturn in Egypt-Israel relations.

That’s exactly what this “plan” is. It’s a slickly packaged re-presentation of the same agenda that’s killed millions of American jobs and will kill millions more if enacted again.

But it is pretty. All typesetters show you their proposed layout using the same dummy Latin language, which begins “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna …”Those typesetters did a great job with this booklet. But the ideas?

Here are five reasons Romney’s “new ideas” are the same job-killing conservative poison we’ve swallowed and regurgitated before: (
