So almost everybody who knows me realizes I bend over backwards not to let politics of ANY stripe besmirch my FB posts. But when I receive a robocall—as I did tonight from Mitt Romney stumping for, sigh, Ben Sasse—I figure the gloves are off. His people must have mistaken me for a member of the 53%, or maybe one of those zany Mormons with the creative underwear. 5 minutes ago - View -

Kenneth Sr Foston : Mobile Uploads During the 2012 campaign, Mitt Romney promised to bring unemployment down from 8.1% to 6% over four years. Well, Pres. Obama has achieved it in less than half that time. You won't hear that on Fox "News," however…

Catherine Erickson : Dr. Tim's Moment Of Clarity I must admit to not liking this post very much when I began reading it, but am very glad that I took the time to read it to the end. Right on Dr. Tim !! I was at the Tea Party Rally in April 2010 during the Union temper tantrum, in the cold and snow storm surrounded by many warm and friendly Conservative people there to show their support for our Governor, we completely drowned out the sounds and sights of the Union temper tantrums. I was also at the Wauwatosa rally in February the year of the recall election, again surrounded by many warm and friendly Conservative people there to show their support for our Governor. The Union temper tantrum people were there, off in the distance, and once again, the good Conservative people drowned them out with even louder cheers !! Dr. Tim has made an excellent point, in both instances, we drowned out the evil with good old fashioned love and LOUDNESS. Governor Walker does stand with us, we just need to remind him LOUDLY of that fact. Thank you for reminding us of that Dr. Tim :) 9 minutes ago - View -
Dee Ing : As Dems avoid Obama on campaign trail, Romney is in GOP demand RUN MIT RUN.....Wished he would run again. You know, Mitt NEVER LOST, he was cheated and voter fraud hid his BIG WIN. I worked very, very close with Mitt and Ann in Colorado, and Colorado had over 20 thousand fans at various campaign events that wanted Mitt to win - both Dems and GOP were all for Mitt. I have been invited to several events this year with Mitt and other GOP Governor candidates thru out the Mid West to help our Republicans WIN. ( I did miss Mitt and Susana Martinez in ALBQ)

Design Democracy Hong Kong 港人講普選 : Plutocrats Against Democracy 諾貝爾經濟學獎得主Paul Krugman :
//So Mr. Leung is worried about the 50 percent of Hong Kong’s population that, he believes, would vote for bad policies because they don’t make enough money. This is a fantasy. Still, is there anything to fears that economic populism will lead to economic disaster? Not really. Lower-income voters are much more supportive than the wealthy toward policies that benefit people like them, and they generally support higher taxes at the top. But if you worry that low-income voters will run wild, that they’ll greedily grab everything and tax job creators into oblivion, history says that you’re wrong. //
Youssef Thomas Cartwright : Asking Muslims To Condemn ISIS Is Offensive, Writes Columnist: Internet Goes Crazy “The public and Obama’s blatant hostility toward Islam is especially evident when one examines the treatment of other groups,” Talbert notes. “After all, we don’t call on Christians, Democrats or Republicans to disavow radical members of their group. That is, unless one of them makes a statement that is seriously nonsensical and in bad taste, such as Todd Akin’s ‘legitimate rape’ comment that drew condemnation from all across the Republican party — including from the Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and the Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell.”
“Why can’t Muslims feel free to refuse to condemn ISIS? I’m sure that, even given the horrible nature of Todd Akin’s comments, a Republican could have refused to condemn him based on the fact that Akin doesn’t represent all Republicans. Similarly, I bet the Pope could refuse to condemn pedophiliac priests because that would imply that pedophilia is the norm for the priesthood. Why are people singling out Islam?”
Talbert’s views instigated a furor on the web, particularly on Reddit. To the point that “we don’t call on Christians, Democrats or Republicans to disavow radical members of their group,” one commenter took issue.
John A. Leopard : Photos from Brian Haskins's post in Rachel Maddow Fans! Republicans argue against Muslims, yet true Christians have much more in common with Muslims than they do with Mitt Romney. In my opinion, that just goes to show that the "Religious Right's" "Christian Conservatism" is a myth. I don't agree with all of this, but it's mostly correct. 34 minutes ago - View -

Sharon Williams Brooks : Cure The CDC Mitt Romney was ridiculed for trying to help Lyme Disease patients. In his 2012 presidential campaign, he specificity targeted voters with Lyme disease. At the time, the CDC was claiming that only 30 thousand new cases per year were occurring in the U.S.
Why would he target such a small number of voters? One reason is that his wife, Ann, has M.S. It may have been caused by Lyme disease. The second reason is that his pollsters knew the numbers of infected voters was MUCH higher than the CDC was claiming.
I know this sounds cynical, but I wont sugar coat it.
In 2013 the CDC adjusted its numbers to 300 thousand new cases of Lyme, per year. This did not happen over night.
In the last 20 years, around 200 thousand people, every year, have been undiagnosed, or misdiagnosed with other conditions that have unknown causes.
Now that is a major Fudge up.

Jeb Bush is talking about running for president. Is America ready for another "Bush?"
Mitt Romney is even throwing hints around that he may be interested in running also. With the negativity president Obama has received as a democrat, do you think the American people will move toward republican the next election???? 54 minutes ago - View -
