To WH Press Secretary Jay Carney, 'Freedom' Is Just A Certain Buzzword...

During a press conference on Tuesday, White House Press Secretary called ‘freedom’ a “buzzword.” He was discussing Obamacare’s effect in lessening work hours because it lowers the hourly threshold an American must work in order to obtain health care.

    It’s not anything but an added choice that they have that allows them more freedom, to use a certain buzzword, more choice.

Freedom isn’t a buzzword. It isn’t something you laugh off. It is something to be taken seriously. If they are willing to laugh at the ‘buzzword’ freedom, this proves that the Obama administration and its microphone Jay Carney don’t take freedom seriously enough.

Orwell would have been proud, and horrified, to see how readily we're adopting Newspeak.

This idiot just said that all of us who have fought for our country did it in defense of a BUZZWORD!

FREEDOM is NOT  a buzzword you blithering idiot!

My thought precisely.  Depressingly astounding.  "Conceived in Liberty" indeed.

Bastards.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

If freedom is a buzzword, so is the word Constitution a "buzzword."
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

If you asked him about that he would agree!

[[ 'freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose' ]]

Amended version, courtesy of clown Carney:
"Freedom's just another buzzword for nuthin' left to lose...."

How long 'til nuthin' is all we have left ??

Carney is the slimiest and most smug mouthpiece we've seen out of Presidential spokesperson.  The way he lies, considering his past at Time Magazine, should tell every American how far up Obama's ass the media is at this time. 
Trump has created a cult and looks more and more like Hitler every day.
