A Fly In The Soup

Of all the preposterous assumptions of humanity over humanity, nothing exceeds most of the criticisms made on the habits of the poor by the well-housed, well-warmed, and well-fed.
--Herman Melville

I applaud the "mole" who infiltrated the ranks of "The Elite Club" at Mitt Romney's 50k a plate dinner back in May of this year. I'd say the Obama campaign has been paid back tenfold for their efforts in exposing how big corporate money, and Republican donors think. And even more how Mitt Romney thinks. The video from Mother Jones is devastating for any political candidate. 
Absolutely... Devastating...
Romney's comments on "Those People," "The 47%," "kick the ball down the field and hope" (regarding Israel), "Wishing he was born a Mexican" (then it would be easier to win), and so on, were a glimpse into the world of White collar criminals, whose beliefs are twisted, and their sense of humor even more so...

Romney reveals a vision for the future that has many Americans squirming in their seats. 
All this coming off a week when he spoke out against the President on his foreign policy in Libya and was shunned by the media. The GOP is spinning Libya into "OUR EMBASSIES ARE BURNING ALL OVER THE WORLD" comments of fear and deflection -far from facts. Yes we lost an ambassador there, but to a small, separate, radical faction and not a nationally backed uprising. The work over there is dangerous to be sure, but if anything, President Obama has made it safer. The President has not escalated the conflict as the Republicans would have you believe. We see evidence of this in the "Arab Spring Movement, the withdrawal from Iraq, the killing of Bin Laden, and the recent withdrawal from Afghanistan."

Watching the video-- as much as I could stomach-- made me think even the Republicans at the dinner couldn't believe what this "Spooky Mormon" was talking about --he seems to state his views in a "whatever comes to mind" kind of way, and then changes his stance completely in mid-sentence-- but the patrons had already shelled out 50k a piece for supper and were going to sit there and nod no matter what Elder Romney had to preach.
I don't blame them, I actually feel sorry for them-- you know, in a Anne Romney sort of way.
Anne Romney is so far above all this "Running for President" stuff --you can see it on her face-- poor thing just wants to be back at her Estate; sucking down caviar with her dancing horse, and getting a rose petal rub down from her cabana boy-- with butter in her ass, and lollipops in her mouth.

I tell u what:
I think its an insult for a presidential candidate to have contempt for half of the American People.
I also think it's hypocritical for him to criticize those who pay no "federal" taxes, while he refuses to release his own tax returns.
And finally, if you're a draft dodging, outsourcing, money laundering, bully who like to dress up as state troopers and hates dogs, tea-totaling, frat boy like mitt Romney is? If you were born into a life of privilege such as he, you don't get to go around criticizing working class citizens at 50K a plate suppers. Period.

These "No Responsibility for their lives" people include: Soldiers, Senior Citizens, The working poor,
and the disabled. Welfare recipients make up a small percentage and are in desperate need more often than not. Is this what we've come to?

Squabbling over mere pennies on the dollar for the betterment of society.
Calling 47% of Americans "Lazy Freeloading Moochers." 

From what I can tell, in his 2011 return he only paid 14% in tax. Some other years may show he actually paid zero. This will be a growing issue for the Romney campaign.  Get ready for the debates and be sure you're registered to vote because this election IS the most important of our lives.

The Romney video proves it.
Romney's leaked fundraising video, is the fly in the soup that is his campaign.

10 Things I Despise:

1. Christmas/Holiday Parties- Or, any other party that I don't want to attend. But mainly, Christmas/Holiday Parties. I'm already dreading them now.

2. CVS, Kroger Plus, and whatever else kind of card they use to track you and your spending habits- CLAIM YOUR BOUNTY AND CUT UP YOUR CARDS TODAY!

3. Lying, egotistical, sexist, hypocritical bigots-  Or as I like to call them, Republicans.

4. Red Light Ticket Cameras-  Surely they're a violation of your constitutional rights? Is this the world George Orwell envisioned come to life? I believe it is. Big Brother is watching you at the corner of NW HWY and The Tollway.

5. Facebook Trolls- Spouting gibberish on others walls in the hope that they'll either bore or confuse to death those with whom they disagree. If you don't like what I have to say, then hide me, or defriend me. Don't hijack my wall. I never do, and believe me, I could.

6.  Libertarians- They're really just Republicans who're too embarrassed to admit it. Talk to one for a while and you'll realize it. They'll say something like, "it's an equal playing field in America and everyone needs to take responsibility for their own well being." "No handouts!" Then they'll go back to their job at Daddy's company...

7. Negativity on the Golf Course- It really brings me down. Playing mind games with your fellow players to score your 95 and feel good about yourself is just plain weird. Keep it chill. Then everybody wins.

8. Door to door sales people-  It's 2012. Knocking on strangers doors may not be the safest bet; These days, all sorts of crazy stuff could happen. I mean, can't you read the sign that says "NO SOLICITING?"  And don't you tell me "this isn't a sales call." DON'T YOU TELL ME THAT BECAUSE IT DAMN SURE IS! 

9. Texting while driving- Folks, the data is in on this and it's not pretty. They say that texting while driving is 10 times worse than driving under the influence of alcohol. And from what I can tell, everyone's doing it.

10. Mormons- How is it they get to make up their own cooky religion in order to have multiple sex partners, galactic underwear, tons of cash, spooky temples, and get away with it?

They're running an Elder for President for Christ's sake!
I'm thinking of starting my own religion based on The Big Lebowski. 
I'll find a sacred bottle of Kaluha in my backyard, go bowling, talk to Jesus in the form of Sam Elliot dressed as a cowboy, and drink white Russians everyday.  
Church members will be known as "Dudes." 

Weekly Wrangle

The Texas Progressive Alliance is still on a post-convention bounce as it brings you this week's roundup.

Off the Kuff analyzed the latest poll of Texas and its implications.  

BossKitty at TruthHugger is suspicious about the timing of that horrid film clip using the name of Mohammad as a fuse to global meltdown against all things western. She really wants to know WHO is responsible for Opportunistic Sadism and the US Election. But she would rather complain about why America's leaders are so slow to address more imminent hazards to America's children: Half Truths Don’t Protect Our Children From Dirty GOP Toxic Trash.

Paul Sadler, the Democratic candidate for US Senate in Texas, is making the right argument; the question is: will enough voters hear it? WCNews at Eye on Williamson makes it clear: Sadler painting Cruz as an extremist in US Senate race.

Libby Shaw reminds us that Women Will Remember in November . Check it out at TexasKaos now.  

CouldBeTrue of South Texas Chisme wants you to know polluters like Exxon and Citgo do harm to real people and our environment.

A point about money and politics had to be made by PDiddie at Brains and Eggs, and so he made it.

Neil at Texas Liberal posted that where the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers meet at Cairo, Illinois is the place where he was created. Neil said his point of origin was based on 3 factors. He was looking for creation as a whole. A place where the culture and society he lives in is expressed. And for a place that has been part of his own life. This junction of two great American rivers meets these tests.
