Indecision 2012 - Bain Man

Mitt Romney touts his experience at Bain Capital as a strength, but not the experience with leveraged buyouts.

Yuk Yuk

I must say the Republicans have pretty good talent writing their jokes for them. That is expect for George, he doesn't need help, he writes his own. Here they are the three stooges: Mitt, Dick, and George.

  • Romney To Spend More Time With His Money
    Mitt Romney explained today that he was dropping out of the U.S. Presidential race in order to spend more time with his money. Romney said that the time on the campaign trail had really harmed his ability to spend "quality time with my bills."
  • Racism and Sexism on Super Tuesday
    Barack Obama squeaked out a narrow win on Super Tuesday to expand his small lead in the pledged delegates. While many of the exit polls were off as predictions, these polls do provide us with one of the best national tests of to what extent voters will admit to racist or sexist motivations. And they also tell us an important fact: Obama was hurt by race-based voting, while Clinton was greatly helped by gender-based voting. More Democratic voters admitted to racist motivations in opposing Obama (an average of 2.88% of the voters) than admitted to sexist motivations in opposing Clinton (an average of 1.83%). Overall, the racist vote outweighed the pro-black vote for Obama by an average of 0.5%. By contrast, the pro-woman vote for Clinton outweighed the sexist vote by an average of 5.0%. That’s a 5.5% swing in each state. The continuing significance of racism (beyond the expressed levels of sexism) was a key factor in why Obama didn’t win a decisive victory over Clinton on Tuesday.

  • The Joy of Writing by Wislawa Szymborska - John Baker’s Blog
    Why does this written doe bound through these written woods?
    For a drink of written water from a spring
    whose surface will xerox her soft muzzle?
    Why does she lift her head; does she hear something?
    Perched on four slim legs borrowed from the truth,
    she pricks up her ears beneath my fingertips.
    Silence - this word also rustles across the page
    and parts the boughs
    that have sprouted from the word “woods.”

Say Goodbye Mitt

Goodbye! Now we find out if Huckabee is John McCain's 'little buddy' or if he was telling the truth when he said he is going on, that it is a two man race. More on the story here.

  • The George W. Bush Legacy in Black & White
    Republicans used to claim Jimmy Carter was the worst president when viewed by socio-economic indicators. However, let's not forget Carter's term followed the dismal years under Nixon and Ford when the American economy did a nosedive after the 1973 oil crisis. All that inflation and unemployment during the Carter years was caused by the previous administration's horrific policies, plus our continued reliance on Middle East oil exports as our primary source of energy for automobiles. In the years after Carter, Reagan and his Milton Friedmanesque economic fantasies took hold ("Let's drown government in the toilet and CUT TAXES, YIPEE! We'll all be millionaires then! After all, fat black women on Welfare are driving Cadillac's and buying Beluga caviar with Food Stamps! Fuck the poor!") and millions of working class Americans bought into that Republican fantasy world, only to see their economic situation decline horribly in the last 25 years.

    The illusion of wealth in the middle class is much greater than the reality they truly face. Their real wages are down, their health care costs are astronomical, and their personal debt load would make previous generations shocked beyond belief. Now we are seeing the value of their homes, the single greatest source of wealth for the middle class, dropping in many areas of the country. Things are not good. Prosperity has been replaced by economic uncertainty and panic in some sectors. Foreclosures are higher than they have been in a generation. Banks are losing their ass right now. The Fed just dropped the prime lending rate 1.25% to stave off a recession, inflation be damned. The government is pumping $150 billion (as tax cuts) into the economy right when we owe the fucking Chinese our ass in government bonds to pay off our already astronomical national debt. The dollar isn't worth shit. This is all fucking scary, folks. It's 1929 all over again. Or maybe worse.


  • Depressed Candidate Runs Attack Ad About Self | The Onion - America's Finest News Source
    WASHINGTON—In the midst of a fiercely competitive presidential race with no clear Republican front-runner in sight, an increasingly depressed Mitt Romney shocked political insiders Monday when he released a new national attack ad targeting himself.

    The ad, which is scheduled to air across the country this week, features an unshaven and visibly crestfallen Romney taking himself to task on a number of key campaign issues, including health-care reform, illegal immigration, and "what's the use of even trying anymore?"

Democratic Debate

A CEO president? Mitt Romney points to his business experience as an important qualification for president, how do you counter the charge that his experience prepares him to run the country. Great answers from both Hillary and Barack.

The Rights of Conscience Inalienable

contributed by Charles Lemos

As I am not a native born American and as I spend some time in some rather repressive countries (most recently Burma), I can express to you what freedom truly means to me. It is the rights of conscience inalienable. For what that truly means, I suggest that you read a short yet powerful sermon from 1791 entitled oddly enough “The Rights of Conscience Inalienable” written by John Leland (1754-1841), a Baptist minister from Grafton, Massachusetts though this sermon was probably delivered in New London, Connecticut. While it deals primarily with a religious question, Leland writes what it means to be free and to have rights of conscience.

With the FISA debate still going on in the Senate I thought I might remind the Senate and my fellow citizens what a Baptist minister from the early days of the American Republic who lived and preached in both Virginia and Massachusetts and who ministered to the Founding Fathers had to say about freedom and the compact between the rulers and the ruled. Leland wrote “that law should rule over rulers, and not rulers over the law” and then adds “that every law made by the legislature inconsistent with the compact, modernly called a constitution, is usurprative in the legislators and not binding on the people.” He believed “that legislators in their legislative capacity cannot alter the Constitution, for they are hired servants of the people to act within the limits of the Constitution.” These three sentences sum my view of the FISA debate as well as the erosion of civil liberties that has taken place over the last seven years.
