The biggy is his birth certificate. If he released that he wouldn't be able to be president.

He was born in Mexico, just like his father!

Hey Omnivorous. Good to see you foraging in these parts again. I thought maybe you had become a vegetarian or something.

As usual, I turned out to be less Nostradamus and more Nostra-dumbass:

Guess the democrats are getting a bit nervous about 2012, eh?

You're not thinking it through. Come November 2012, we'd much prefer to have Obama up against not-ready-for-primetime, gaffe-a-minute Herman Cain than Mitt Romney, currently the only Republican adult in the room. Unlike Cain, Romney has actually won elections and has experience as an executive. Romney's ACA-predecessor Massachussets health care system is much more of a liability for him in your primary than in our general, since Obama can hardly hang around his neck what Obama would like to claim as a victory for himself, right?

No, we'd much rather have Cain vs. Obama. Call it the Audacity of Hope vs. the Audacity of a Dope.

Even Cain is saying this is an inside job. Look to your own guys, Coyote. Obama's style is to let his opponents shoot themselves in the face.

....

what?


“The human understanding when it has once adopted an opinion (either as being the received opinion or as being agreeable to itself) draws all things else to support and agree with it.”
- Francis Bacon

"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs." - John Rogers

“A world that can be explained even with bad reasons is a familiar world. But, on the other hand, in a universe suddenly divested of illusions and lights, man feels an alien, a stranger. His exile is without remedy since he is deprived of the memory of a lost home or the hope of a promised land. This divorce between man and his life, the actor and his setting, is properly the feeling of absurdity.” – Albert Camus

"...the pious hope that by combining numerous little turds of
variously tainted data, one can obtain a valuable result; but in fact, the
outcome is merely a larger than average pile of shit." Barash, David 1995.

Lefties and Righties.
For some of us, next week is the deadline for at least some opportunities to register to vote. There is a handy link in my signature to see your state's registration requirement. Don't be complacent or forlorn about your candidates chances. Please register to vote next week.

And keeping with the one man one vote principle championed in the Republican party platform, and put into practice in the many attempts to discourage registered minorities and elderly people from voting:

"Blue" voting day is November 6, this year. Red voting day is November 8.


Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also in prison. Thoreau: Civil Disobedience (1846)

The apathy of the people is enough to make every statue leap from its pedestal and hasten the resurrection of the dead. William Lloyd Garrison.

It's not too late to register to vote. State Registration Deadlines

Every time you wonder whether conservatives can get more stupid and disgusting than they are already ... they lower the bar.

Can you imagine how much old porn these Christian conservative family value types had to go through just to find one woman that they felt may be passed off as Obama's mom? What self-sacrifice!

May I ask, what if anything would that have to do with whether or not Obama would be a good candidate for president?

Have they ever heard of a guy named Alexander Hamilton?

Do the avoidance schools of the CCoI teach any history?


Anyone so limited that they can only spell a word one way is severely handicapped!

Now that Mittles is tugging ahead no one has anything to say in this thread?

Or are you all out early voting?

Who Gets To Be Captain Of Titanic? Debate Tonight
Who gets to be the captain of the luxury liner USA whose first class passengers don't want to do all of the bailing out or pay to fix the boat and who want the second class passengers to do most of the work keeping it afloat, while promising the third class passengers a better chance to become second class?

And the band played on.....

Why the fuck is the press letting Romney getting away with lying about his record as gov of Mass? He left the state with billions of dollars deficit and the worst job growth in the nation. Yet, there he was up on stage telling people he balanced the budget in Mass.

Phat, correct me if I'm wrong, but I could have sworn you were one of the conservatives here?

Im not sure what I am. I do know that I agree with Obama more than I do Romney...Obama seems more trustworthy...but I also have gotten lectured by my Republican friends about Milton Friedman style capitalism as the "best system yet devised" for creating wealth.

I probably should read more and ask more questions rather than believing what I hear, however.
