    “…or do you want a president who has publicly promised to f.ck things up AND hate your homo guts while doing it? Hahaha.”

    This presumes that stupid homosexual voters will be anymore aware he’s publicly promised to f*ck things up than stupid heterosexual voters, which would require them to actually understand macroeconomics, or perform even a cursory browsing of historical data. What we deign to call ‘the middle class’ are really the walking dead, and it seems that they’re the only ones that are unaware of this fact; It doesn’t matter that he’s running on policies that are proven failures, both in terms of middle class growth and in terms of deficit reduction, because people are lazy, spiteful, and ignorant.

    @Gabriel & Matthew

    Both of you may be correct, a local station interviwed some gays about Obama, one guy said. Yeah I’d like to marry my partner, but lets face it, both of us have been out of a job for 8 months and couldn’t afford it.

    Economy is the focus and no matter what else comes along that will determine what level or what box you fill in at the voting booth.

    Now milk & chicken is the problem. :roll: I guess cutting back on milk & chicken is better than higher taxes. Ratboy stop smoking meat so taxes & electric bills don’t go up.

    Scientists say the 360,000 tonnes of milk wasted in the UK each year creates greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to 100,000 tonnes of CO2. The study by the University of Edinburgh says this is the same as is emitted by about 20,000 cars annually.

    Read more here.

    Researchers also say halving the amount of chicken consumed in the UK and other developed countries to levels eaten in Japan could cut greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to taking 10 million cars off the road.

    @Hillbilly

    I’m telling ya man, it’s the gas that the onions cause when we eat the burger and not the Cows themselves. After years of study and experiments and research and actual real live test I have concluded that the gasses formed after the eating is the main factor.

    But if all else fails, I think even the gay zombies will vote for the guy who doesn’t want to limit state and federal perks to heterosexuals. Funny how the conversation about gay marriage is just a disguised conversation about sex though. Everyone seems to be preoccupied with sex. I crack up every time I hear a supposedly serious member of our society speaking about gay marriage while keeping a straight face.

    @Matthew
    This is not an unbiased, principled stand.

    Of course I have biases based on my life experiences . It’s time for you to put on your big boy pants & realize you have them too. Also, responsible adults VOTE. I remember you saying you weren’t planning on doing so . Not taking a stand is easy . Where do you fit in your statement “What we deign to call ‘the middle class’ are really the walking dead” I consider myself middle class but I refuse to believe I’m in the walking dead. I’m involved & am accomplishing goals. Cynicism accomplishes very little & is a waste of energy.

    RON PAUL OUT – Will Not Compete in Remaining States

  • Coffee Steve

    @d.d.

    Whats amazing is I did read Obama’s book when he was running the last time, and very little was brought up about it in 2008. I heard Hannity did, but I seldome watch his show.

    Yet, the WP has a 11 page story on Romney 47 years ago in High School? I couldn’t care less what Pres Obama or Romney did in High School, good grief if what I did in High School became public today, there would be a best selling book…hmmmmmm :-)

    Obama trade rep punk’d as a corporate ‘tool’

    The Occupy movement scored its biggest slap at the Obama administration over the weekend when U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk was punk’d MTV-Ashton Kutcher style at the Dallas meeting of the Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations.

    After Kirk finished speaking, an Occupy demonstrator and actor dressed in a suit went to the microphone to announce that Kirk’s team would be receiving the “2012 Corporate Power Tool Award.” He said, “The TPP agreement is shaping up to be a fantastic way for us to maximize profits regardless of what the public of this nation–or any nation–thinks is right.”

    Minutes later, according to video posted on the web, Kirk appeared unaware he was being spoofed and moved to accept the award before security moved in to kick the 20 protesters out.

    A Kirk spokeswoman made light of the event and the protesters. “As protestors had pre-registered with USTR to be on–site at the TPP talks as stakeholders, it just goes to show that we really do open up the venues to a diversity of opinion,” she said.

    The activist, who called himself “Git Haversall” of the “Texas Corporate Power Partnership” carried a plaque decorated with images of power drills that read: “2012 Corporate Power Tool Award. Recognizing U.S. trade officials’ efforts for the 1 percent.”

    “Of course I have biases based on my life experiences . It’s time for you to put on your big boy pants & realize you have them too. Also, responsible adults VOTE. I remember you saying you weren’t planning on doing so . Not taking a stand is easy . ”

    You remember incorrectly. I fully intend to vote, I just won’t be voting for Obama or Romney. Making a statement of principle, such as “doing such and such is bad,” then immediately quantifying the level of said bad thing that you will accept is not a stand. I will vote for the best candidate, not the least evil candidate, even if the candidate I vote for has no shot of winning. If you don’t like dirty politics, don’t vote for dirty politicians, and then give yourself this false comfort of “Oh, well, the other guy is much worse, sooo…” Dirty is dirty.

    “Where do you fit in your statement ‘What we deign to call ‘the middle class’ are really the walking dead” I consider myself middle class but I refuse to believe I’m in the walking dead. I’m involved & am accomplishing goals. Cynicism accomplishes very little & is a waste of energy.”

    My ‘walking dead’ statement was not in regards to how involved people are, it’s in regards to the fact that I think the middle class has been dead since the days of stagflation, and no longer qualify as middle class. Real income has been flatlined, and household purchasing power is actually lower than it was in the 60s once you take into account the fact that more households have two working spouses, yet inflation in food and gas prices combined with the failure of trickle down means they’re barely ahead of where households with only a father working were decades ago. Romney is running on the same sh*t that’s been ballooning the deficit and stagnating wages for the last 30 years, he’s bringing nothing new or effective to the table; Trickle down, a $5 trillion tax cut, and increased spending to the most bloated department in the federal government. In other words, the same old crap that’s been stagnating wages and ballooning the deficit. And, of course, Obama’s first term speaks for itself. If the middle class vote for either of these men, they’re getting what they deserve.

    *^—- Oops, didn’t mean to double-down on the stagnation and deficit sentence. Blugh.

    Don’t Know Much About History: MSNBC’s Matthews Uses Phony Winston Churchill Quote In New ‘Lean Forward’ Promo

    MSNBC’s Chris Matthews is featured in a new “Lean Forward” promo spot [embedded below page break; MP3 audio here] quoting his “hero” Winston Churchill as having asked “Then what are we fighting for?” when his finance minister suggested that the government’s budget for the arts would have to cut to aid Britain’s war effort. Matthews used that story as a warning to conservatives that the nation’s dire financial straits are no excuse for cutting federal spending on the arts.

    But alas, it seems the story is poppycock, as Churchill historian Richard Langworth noted in a March 2009

    @Ratboy

    Just spoke with a guy I worked with (Political Reporter) down in North Carolina

    “North Carolina will be RED this time…The Dems are about to write that swing state off.”

    He talked like since the announcment it has swung bigtime against the Dems.

    Also, responsible adults VOTE.

    =============================

    This one is both an appeal to tradition and an appeal to the people, milady. I happen to believe the exact opposite. I lose a little respect for people who emphasize the power of the vote, even in the face of overwhelming evidence of its powerlessness. It is interesting that you label civic inaction as cynicism and even more interesting that you think cynicism is a waste of energy. For someone like me, dancing in the mud for hours would be a more gratifying and meaningful activity than voting. That doesn’t mean that I don’t care about voting. I just wouldn’t choose voting over an opportunity to dance in the mud.
