Well, where to start?

Mitt's been busy.

But since American's seem to have noticed I'll pass on all his blunders and post something different.

Amish guilty of hate crimes in Ohio beard-cuttings | US National Headlines | Comcast

Mitt should take notice. It's not okay to pin someone to the ground and cut their hair off just because you don't like how they look or act. WTF is wrong with this Mitt?
It ain't right though that these Amish could get twenty years in prison for this - should be about six months in jail for first offense. It especially ain't right when you consider another hair-cutter gets to run for president.
I have to wonder if religion plays a part in people's sense of superiority and need for conformity. Or maybe that type of people gravitate toward religion. Either way, it sucks...if that's what's going on.
Middle East. Middle America?

lol - a "supposed" incident from 47 years ago when Romney was in high school.
That's real important stuff there.



A 20 year close personal relationship with a racist, anti-semetic, anti-American pastor ?

Irrelevant to the sycophants.

"Oh, for the days when we thought Mitt Romney didn’t stand for anything."

"Less than 50 days before the election, we learn that Romney may have given up on half of America and on Mideast peace."

"We thought Romney was secretly moderate, but it turns out that he’s secretly cruel, a social Darwinist just like his running mate."

"After months of doggedly trying to seem more likable, sharing his guilty pleasures like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Snooki, Romney came across as a mean geek, a Cranbrook kid at the country club smugly swaddled in class disdain. He thinks being president is his manifest destiny. His father didn’t make it, so he will — no matter what far-out conservative positions he must graft on to in order to do it.
We’re in search of the real Romney. But, disturbingly, so is he.
One thing we have to give Mitt, though: He is, as advertised, a brilliant manager. He’s managed to ensure that President Obama has a much better chance of re-election."

For your information, MItt's life is full of a pattern of spoiled frat boy behavior. It runs right up until his secretly taped comments where he disses half of the populace in his own arrogant way. The man is semi-sick, it seems. And he is ten times nicer than Newt. Geez! WTF?

Wright IS relevant. Unfortunately for Mitt, he and his party are so whacko that people reject them no matter what Obama has or hasn't done. And Obama got Osama.
The only way the GOP wins is by rigging the election - something they are very persistent at.

Prediction:
Mitt and Barack will be in a virtual tie after the debates. Mitt could even win given the way the voting process has been manipulated by Republicans.

What an idiot

Romney: Teacher contributions to politicians should be limited - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

And every other contributor who "sits across a table" is just fine. Talk about picked an choosing winners and losers. This man is stupidly inconsistent.

I think I'll change my prediction about a close race at the end, even though Mitt is more well spoken than Obama.

This belongs in the income inequality thread...

...but it fits here just as well. By Joe Nocera, one of the best business journalists there is.

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/25/op...-400.html?_r=0

"Thirty years ago, when Forbes published its first Forbes 400, a net worth of $75 million would get you on the list. Today it takes $1.1 billion. In the last year alone, the cumulative net worth of the wealthiest 400 people, by Forbes’s calculation, rose by $200 billion. That compares with a 4 percent drop in median household income last year, according to the Census Bureau. One would be hard pressed to find a clearer example of how powerfully income inequality has taken root."

"Financiers, who make up a large percentage of the Forbes 400, long ago found ways to convert their compensation to capital gains, for instance. Romney, of course, did the same thing when he was running Bain Capital, a private equity firm. But even those who are not on Wall Street rely on capital gains. A large number of the Forbes 400 — “roughly 40 percent,” according to a group called United for a Fair Economy — inherited their wealth. Many others on the list — people who started companies that they’ve since left — are classified by Forbes as investors."

"Even many of the corporate executives on the Forbes 400 are likely paying a lower tax rate. Many of them get minimal cash compensation and rely on stock options for the bulk of their wealth. Or they maneuver to take their companies through a leveraged buyout, which reaps them huge potential capital gains. In 2009, according to recent Congressional testimony by Leonard E. Burman, a professor at Syracuse University, the 400 highest-income taxpayers reaped an astounding 16 percent of all capital gains."

To recap:
Wealthy people use the tax code to increse their wealth in ways that are not possible for the average citizen. Take that into account when you think about income tax rates and taxes in general. That's how Mitt got to 13.9%. They use us like a rug. And then we fight their wars. Isn't that a definition of stupidity? "Trickle Down" has been a big stick shoved up our collective you-know-what...sideways

Another thought:
These wealthy people are constantly called the "job creators" on FUX and elsewhere. They always say that these "job creators" need more money to create more jobs. Well, looks pretty clear to me that they ARE getting more money and they ARE NOT creating new jobs. This is yet another example of how wealthy media moguls twist the facts to suit their own ends. Rupert Murcoch cares about two things: One, to become even wealthier, and two, to further the conservative agenda in politics. Facts and reality don't matter to the likes of Rupert Murcoch. Fooling his audience does matter. You've been had...again...on this "job creators" bullshit.

One last thing:
Why are we taxing income on anyone making less than $100,000? Income tax on a living wage is a disincentive to work. It tells people not to work so hard - to make less money. We should be taxing consumption, not work.

One more:
Why are businesses expected to foot the bill for employee's health care? IMO, that should be a combined responsibility of the individual and the government. In other's opinions that should be the responsibility of the individual alone. It should never be the responsibility of a business. But I'd love to hear a counter argument to that one...if anyone intelligent ever joins the forum.

BROOKS: Romney shows he's lost track of social compact | PressDemocrat.com

I should probably read all of this before posting but I was just blown away by the following paragraph - from a Republican (light) journalist:

"In 1960, government transfers to individuals totaled $24 billion. By 2010, that total was 100 times as large. Even after adjusting for inflation, entitlement transfers to individuals have grown by more than 700 percent over the last 50 years. This spending surge, Eberstadt notes, has increased faster under Republican administrations than Democratic ones."

Moral of the story:
You can never believe what politicians tell you. Pub rhetoric is chock full of this type of twisted reality. Dem history is too but not nearly as much, IMHO.
Who can forget the graph I posted about our national debt and how it grows under Pubs and shrinks under Dems? Geez, this should give some of you a headache (probably won't though since you're such subserviant minions).

Politifact Lies of the Year

2009: PolitiFact | PolitiFact's Lie of the Year: 'Death panels'

2010: PolitiFact | PolitiFact's Lie of the Year: 'A government takeover of health care'

Guess who repeated both of them during the debate?
Does anyone believe anything he says?

Vulture Capital, Profiteering, Offshoring, 13.9% taxes paid = Screw America First

FOCUS | UAW Files Charges Against Romney for Auto Bail-Out Profiteering

"or Mitt Romney, it's one scary Halloween. The Presidential candidate has just learned that tomorrow afternoon he will charged with violating the federal Ethics in Government law by improperly concealing his multi-million dollar windfall from the auto industry bail-out."

Piling On


http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/05/op...tts-world.html
Mitt Romney has been criticized for not discussing foreign policy. Give him a break. He probably figures hes already said all that he needs to say during the primaries: He has a big stick, and he is going to use it on Day 1. Or as he put it: If Im president of the United States ... on Day 1, I will declare China a currency manipulator, allowing me to put tariffs on products where they are stealing American jobs unfairly.

That is really cool. Smack China on Day 1. I just wonder what happens on Day 2 when China, the biggest foreign buyer of U.S. debt securities, announces that it will not participate in the next Treasury auction, sending our interest rates soaring. That will make Day 3 really, really cool. Welcome to the Romney foreign policy, which Id call: George W. Bush abroad the cartoon version.

Irony of Ironies

If the shoe were on the other foot, some conservatives would be calling this a message from god. But of course they are on the losing end so it's just coincidence.
