How Two Words Can Show You Whose Side Obama Is Really On

Do you remember back in the 2008 election when Barack Obama derisively said:

… and you go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, like a lot of small towns in the midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they’ve gone through the Clinton admininistration and the Bush administration and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are going to regenerate and they have not. So it’s not surprising then that they get bitter and they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment, or anti-trade sentiment in order to explain their frustrations.

So let’s change just two words and see what happens:

… and you go into some of these small towns in Iraq, like a lot of small towns in the mideast, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they’ve gone through the Clinton admininistration and the Bush administration and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are going to regenerate and they have not. So it’s not surprising then that they get bitter and they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment, or anti-trade sentiment in order to explain their frustrations.

I changed two words. But can you ever imagine that Obama would utter those same sentences with those two words changed?

I’m just sayin’.

Matt’s Opus Dei FAQ Has Moved to WordPress!

Back in 2011, just as I was starting the last semester of my Master’s Degree in Medical Informatics, Matt’s Opus Dei FAQ was hacked by some Internet terrorist. I didn’t have time to fix it, and when I finished my degree I soon started a new job that was very demanding on my time. During the holidays last year I finally got around to fixing, reformatting, and re-posting it on my old site, InterBit.com. I also did some minor editing of content, but didn’t make any substantive changes. I relaunched the FAQ on January 9, 2015. I guess you could consider it my birthday gift to St. Josemaría Escrivá.

But having recently discovered the wonders of WordPress, I decided to move my whole blog, including the FAQ, over here. You can get to it by clicking the Opus Dei link at the top of this page, or by clicking here.

Under Construction…

Having recently discovered how wonderful WordPress is, I’ve decided to move my blog over here, and rename it to Truth Served Raw.

I’ll also move the recently resurrected world famous “Matt’s Opus Dei FAQ” from my own server to this blog. This is a work in progress. I have no intention of changing the substance of the FAQ, but the structure and format may change. In the meantime, you can view Matt’s Opus Dei FAQ in its current, official state, at the old server.

And of course, my new FAQ, Matt’s Anglican Use FAQ will also be moved when I have the time.

I’ll also move some of my posts over here, too.
