Lauryn Hill Gets Jailed, Pat Smith Gets Some

I have long maintained that some of the more interesting parts to a news story are the reactions of the readers to the content. For example, pompous singing millionaire Lauryn Hill actually had the stones to say this:

‘I am a child of former slaves who had a system imposed on them,’ Hill said before U.S. Magistrate Madeline Cox Arleo. ‘I had an economic system imposed on me.’

It reeks of stupidity on so many levels, I won’t waste time debunking it. But I must share this reaction, from Nim in London:

Sorry love but your nothing special, as we’ll all slaves to a system which has been imposed on us

And when Pat Smith, who lost her son Sean Smith at Benghazi, spoke to Jake Tapper about Hillary Clinton, one of the commenters replied back with:

Don’t worry, when it hits the fan, the press won’t escape the wrath. There are many of us watching the corruption by these pressitutes.

Pressitutes, love it.

A MOH for SGT Clinton L. Romesha

In the Outpost, Jake Tapper covered the heroism behind the COP Keating attack. And now, SGT Clinton L. Romesha will receive the Medal of Honor for his brave efforts:

A former staff sergeant who helped repel one of the largest, most vicious battles against U.S. forces in Afghanistan will receive the Medal of Honor, the White House announced Friday.

Clinton L. Romesha, 31, will be the fourth living service member to receive the nation’s highest award for valor for actions in Afghanistan or Iraq. Seven other service members have posthumously been awarded the Medal of Honor for their actions in those wars.

Romesha will be awarded Feb. 11 at the White House.

Romesha was a section leader in B Troop, 3rd Squadron, 61st Cavalry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division during the Oct. 3, 2009, attack on Combat Outpost Keating in eastern Afghanistan.

The hero Sergeant currently lives Minot, N.D., working as a field safety specialist for a profitable, oil-field construction firm. . .
