MomentoMori,

"Nor is PJ O'Rourke."

------------------------------------------

That's just mean spirited, Mori. Do I insult your icons like Al Sharpton and Bill Maher?

Okay, I do, but they deserve it.

Steve0T,

 "Meanwhile, you spend your days up Limbaugh's derriere."

------------------------------------------------

There you have it, folks. The full repertoire of Stevie's debate skills. It would make any 1st grader proud.

Clearly we need the lower fifty percent to start earning more income. Maybe if your buddies the "Job Creators" weren't so busy investing in China......

Gee! I wonder what was their first clue?

"Voters say Obama is extreme, lacks plan for future"

"For two months, those who view Obama as extreme has increased, reaching 47 percent in the latest poll. Just 43 percent consider the president in the mainstream."

I'm shocked!!  SHOCKED!!!!

Romney denied he was involved with the buyout of Stericycle.  Why, then, do the SEC filings show he is lying?

Ah, the GOP's finest!

The best way to improve military morale is to praise the troops in speeches

"I'm a vulture capitalist, with hidden assets and banks accounts in

Switzerland, Bermuda and the Cayman Islands, who invested in and

provided capital for companies that specialized in outsourcing American

jobs and no, I'm not going to show you my tax returns. But you can trust

me, America"

~ Willard M. Romney, the GOP reject in 2008 and last

hope in 2012.

Interesting, speaking of rats and ratholes....

 In 2004, the second year of Romney’s one-and-only term as Governor of

Massachusetts, the Massachusetts legislature sent Romney a budget with

an amendment that "would prohibit Massachusetts from contracting with

companies that ‘outsource’ the state's work to other countries."  

 

Surprise!!!!  Romney vetoed the amendment.  

 

He was, of course, heavily invested in outsourcing American jobs through his Bain Capital holdings in companies like CSI, Stream International Inc., and

Modus Media -- "pioneers" in helping U.S. companies outsource American

jobs.  

I wonder whether the Massachusetts legislature was aware of Romney's

conflict of interest.  Does anybody know whether he made this conflict

of interest known to the legislature....???

Contrary to what the Libertarian’s advocate, we really need the Federal government and contrary to what the Republicans practice, we need government to focus on more than just the few, more than just “the money”.  That leaves the Democrats as the choice and if most feel they are too liberal, then we need a strong new party to focus on fairly representing the majority, mainly the middle-class who really make the country work.  The Republican philosophies of “the least amount of government is the best government” and “government should only do for the people that which they can’t do for themselves” have real merit but they also have serious responsibilities which are dictated within those philosophies: i.e., government should be at least what is needed; and government needs to do what the people can’t do.  Included in that is the need for government to protect the people from exploitation by the advantaged few and that has not only been neglected by the Republicans but they have actually encouraged and even been co-responsible for the exploitation, with their permissiveness and catering to the advantaged few, “the money”, their strong supporters, with that always being rationalized as “conservative”.

Should a new “people’s party” be desired, possibly it could be made up of those moderates being forced out of the Republican Party and of conservatives from the Democrats and any other centrists so inclined.  As said, their focus would actually be on responsibly representing the majority, the middle-class.  The problem of course is having the money needed to accomplish everything, including the vast sums necessary to effectively compete against the mega-millions being spent to propagandize, to con the people and manipulate public opinion, and to sell the “puppet” politicians owned and controlled by “the money”.  Good luck with that one.

In the mean time, this country can’t further endure continually being exploited by the insatiable “more” (never enough) appetite of the few, a practice constantly pushing the country further into being a two-class society with the few having it all while the majority simply looses more - a reality clearly shown by the growing spread between them, reflecting the gains of the 1% and the losses of the 99%.  The voters really need to prevent a return to “more of the same”, Bush-Cheney style, which once more would irresponsibly totally cater to the interests of the few while again giving the majority nothing more than an abundance of subterfuge and the drastic costs, which is what “the money” and the Republican / Tea Party are aggressively striving to achieve.  It is up to the voters; good luck there too.

Steve0T,

"Wasn't Solyndra a 500 million investment?"

--------------------------------------------------------

Investment? That's what they're calling it now? It used to be called shoving cash down a rat hole.

P.S. You are right! ObamaCare will cost Medicare a 1000 times what Solyndra cost the taxpayer.  Thanks for the heads up.

Steve0T

 No, sport. Shoving cash down a rathole happened when Halliburton got a $10 billion contract. With no other bidders.

I gave you a link, you refuse to read it and spout lies instead.

Are you Rmoney in disguise??

Romney Speaks About Romneycare (You know, the blueprint for Obamacare):

   -

2007: “I’m proud of what we’ve done. If Massachusetts succeeds in

implementing it, then that will be a model for the nation.” [Newsweek,

12/2/2007]  

 - 2007: “I think you’re going to find when it’s all said and done, after all these states that are the laboratories of democracy, get their chance to try their own plans, but those who follow the path that we pursued will find it’s the best path, and we’ll end up with a nation that’s taken a mandate approach.” [NBC, 12/16/2007]    

-2008: "I like mandates" [ABC-TV, January, GOP presidential candidate debate]    

- 2008: "Yes" [Romney's response to ABC-TV's Charlie Gibson when asked if Romneycare "imposed tax penalties in Massachusetts”]  

 - 2009: “Massachusetts is a model for getting everybody insured in a way

that doesn’t break the bank, doesn’t put the government in the driver’s

seat and allows people to own their own insurance policies and not to

have to worry about losing coverage.” [CNN, 2009]

Things Rmoney Believes

A woman can't be trusted with decisions about her own body, but multi-national

corporations can make decisions affecting all mankind without regulation because, after all, "Standing Tall for America" means firing your workers and moving their jobs to India.

Yeah, they will also be taught that the earth was created in 4000BC and homosexuality is an abomination and should be bullied.

I am sure these teaching were part of your home-schooling as well. Quelle surprise.

 The odd thing...or perhaps not so odd, considering the source...is that he repeats his past lies that have already been exposed.  As though repeating them often enough will make them true.

One wonders if he still claps for Tinkerbell.

Steve0T,

Barack Obama makes a regular thing of blatant lies and bull excrement and you shovel it in with a spoon. Your criticism is far from credible. 

I would say it is somewhere on the level of Baghdad Bob's claims that there were no US tanks in downtown Baghdad.

Mormon leader Brigham Young: "You must not

think, from what I say, that I am opposed to slavery. No! The negro is

damned, and is to serve his master till God chooses to remove the curse

of Ham..."  

It was not until threatened with loss of its

tax-exempt status by the IRS in 1978 (some fourteen years after the

Civil Rights Act) that there was a convenient "Revelation" in Salt Lake

City and the Mormon Church's systemic racism was officially rescinded.

Does anybody know how many black people Rmoney has on his campaign staff?

Just curious.
