The day is almost here. If you haven’t voted early, do it now. Get out the vote.
Now you may say Ohio isn’t racist not just Ohio but Florida, Pennsylvania and all other red states. Voter suppression is racist. They know if they can keep democrats from the polls they will win the election. Over these many months we have been “informed” by the press and media about the “horse race” with no real discussion of policy and racism. Like television, they are only interested in entertainment and not knowledge. Selling newspapers is so much more important.
Hatred and racism is the hallmark of the republican party. It is what they do best. They have told so many lies that that believe them to be fact. So many lies that it has shown itself for what it truly is……….Racist. It is not new and we should already know this. It is only now more obvious. A black man is President, living in the Whitehorse. Billboards in poor and black neighborhoods, lies about voter ID and then there is Trick the Vote [ True the Vote]. True the Vote is an oxymoron for republicans. For them there is no truth in the voting process. They promised to follow the Constitution and then pervert it. They say they are Christians, but speak hatred and racism. Hypocrites and contradictory positions. New Left Media said it best:
Well, perhaps the capacity to hold so many contradictory beliefs at once reflects the fact that the public school curriculum has become solely oriented around series of standardized tests, robbing a large portion of our citizenry (among other things) of the capacity for critical thinking skills. Or maybe it is because the internet has enabled people to exist in completely different social and political realities wherein they seek out and find only the type of information that will confirm their pre-existing worldviews. Or maybe it’s because local media has essentially collapsed and the mainstream media, interested less in delivering the news than in acting as faithful defenders of the status quo, is unable to effectively help the public to thoroughly vet the Republican nominee.
The republicans are not meant to think. Just follow. So, it is time to get out the vote. We can stand in line for hours to get into a football game, so we can stand and wait to vote. Your vote is so much important. Don’t get tricked. Stand up for all of us, women, the poor, the middle-class!!!!! We need to make American proud of herself.
First I must admit that I didn’t watch the complete debate. I did watch most of it and I was stunned. Where was President Obama. I saw someone who looked like him staring down, shaking his head and smiling, but the man was not there. Romney on the other had, was assertive and kept looking Obama in the eye. Even when he lied about Social Security and Medicare. That is when I knew Obama wasn’t there. When The Stench lied, President Obama should have said so, and gone on the attack of Romney’s record. Obama has said many times that he fighting for the middle-class, for me and for you, and stands silent. No mention of Bain, the 47%, healthcare and taxes. It was past comprehension.
I have no idea what Obama team was not thinking. Obama had control tonight and he let Romney back in the game. Tonight Romney looked determined and Obama acted as if he didn’t care. Obama appeared to lack confidence. Romney used Obama’s act and personalized the debate. He talked about people he met and how he would help. But most importantly, Obama did not go after Romney. Romney said tonight that he would move to the center and disavow the Right, and Obama didn’t jump on it. Romney said he would take his healthcare plan he put in place in Massachusetts and make it national. Well, isn’t that Obamacare. Hello?!! Obama stood there as if didn’t know what to say. Romney sounded specific about his plan. And Jim Lehrer. He should have been in charge and not let Romney control. Mostly though, Obama was invisible.
I am just so angry. I have to stop.
And so it goes!!!!!!
” The Stench” is becoming the invisible man. Soon he will be gone along with “The Stench”
Rejoice!!!!!!! VOTE AND TAKE A FRIEND WITH YOU. WOMEN, WE CAN’T FORGET WHAT THEY HAVE TRIED TO DO TO US!!!!!!
They have welcomed Ryan as the wonder boy for Romney. Now, with Ryan they can lie even more and use the press to do it. Case in point: the Richmond Times Dispatch. This manner of reporting has been done before, but this time it was blatant and unrepentant. The Richmond Times Dispatch ran an editorial on the then new campaign ad from Romney/Ryan, you know the one, welfare to work requirement was being removed. It was a lie. The Richmond Times Dispatch ran an editorial: http://www2.timesdispatch.com/news/rtd-opinion/2012/aug/15/tdopin01-gutted-ar-2131149/. Which was a lie taken from the lie Romney initiated about welfare. They ran it as truth. I said it before, republicans see lies as truth, and truth as lies. Today the Richmond Times Dispatch ran a news piece saying that the Romney ad had been proven false; http://www2.timesdispatch.com/news/2012/aug/20/new-romney-ad-pushes-debunked-claim-against-obama-ar-2142116/. There was no apology for their blatant lie, pro Romney editorial or failure to actually do their job. Even the newest journalism grad knows that you need at least three confirmations before you run a story. They did nothing. It was simple: whatever Romney/Ryan say is the gospel truth, and our editorial board is going to say so.
So ti be clear. The Romney campaign runs an ad that’s a complete lie. Some editorial writer from the Richmond Times-Dispatch writes in defense of the ad, using the ad as the only source of material and doing no fact-checking. The Romney campaign then uses the editorial (which was based only on the original Romney ad) as evidence that their ad wasn’t a lie. When in doubt always lie, lie, lie, lie. It makes Romney/Ryan the perfect Republican candidates.
Don’t let them make clowns of us. Vote. Tell the truth. When newspapers lie, we must write the truth. Expose them for what they are…hacks.
Legitimate Rape. These are the men that make all these new laws concerning women’s health. Families first, family values, Christian Right, God-fearing, compassionate conservatives passing legislation to control women’s bodies. What do they know about anything. This is a return to barefoot, stay in the kitchen pregnant women of the old days. White haired old men making choices for women. Just so they can be victimized again and again. I have said it before in an earlier post, what state governments are doing to women is “governmental rape.” What they can’t do with their little pods, they do with the law. We should know by now that the louder they are, the smaller they are. It’s pride for them, they have to prove they have a big dick. They used to have a big dick, his name was Nixon, who f@cked everyone. I must stop. I had a flashback of 1972, summer and joints, and smoke and the big dick. I digress or recess.
Nixon proudly said: “I am not a crook.” Ryan proudly states stance on abortion that it should be illegal even in the case of rape and incest. Now with this comment from Akin, it seems that they both seem to think that if a women gets raped, is ovulating she can stop the egg from being fertilized. Amazing. Back to the place where women and blacks had their place. Republicans are smashing the life out of women voters including conservative women. They will find themselves in the voting both marking for Obama and they should. All women should be thinking about their daughters and friends daughters. Look into your children’s eyes and see the future that lies ahead from the republicans. Ryan as he had done today and the past few days will lie and stand up for abortion rights. He’s doing that now with Medicare. “My mother relies on Medicare……”. Which of course is ludicrous.
Of course we could all move to Massachusetts.
