Rmoney's Cheap Shot

I know that Rmoney is a complete dufus, a spoiled rotten rich kid who thinks the Presidency was preordained to be his in some Mormon fantasy/prophecy, but his cheap shot against President Carter was a new low, even for him.

In response to a report's question about whether Rmoney would have made the decision to kill Bin Laden, Rmoney had the temerity to say: even Jimmy Carter would have got that one right.

Now, I, like everyone, wished the hostage situation would have had a better outcome for President Carter, and he was the victim of a lot of bad circumstances, especially economically, and I won't say he was the best President we had in the 20th century. If anything, he may have been too nice to be President. But he is a honorable, indeed, truly great human being. He has done more to earn my respect since he left office than any former President I can think of.

For Rmoney to say what he did tells me everything I ever need to know about Rmoney's true character, and it ain't pretty.

In short, he's a snake in the grass, as my father would have said.

How anybody can vote for this worm is beyond me.

Great quote from a "founding father"

"Nothing in this world doth more resemble heavenly happiness, than for men to live as one, being of one heart, and one soul; neither any thing more resembles hellish horror, then for every man to shift for himself" Deacon Robert Cushman, 1621 at Plymouth, Massachusetts Colony

Eat that, Teabagging Libertarians.

My 2012 Nightmare

I know Rmoney is a stiff, socially awkward, flip-flopping dufus hated by his own party, but, my great fear for 2012 is this:

Rmoney will have money. Scads and tons and endless brazillions of it. And he will have an Army, literally, of Mormon workers on the ground all over the ground maybe a million or more, on a mission to elect the first Mormon President, fulfilling a Mormon prophecy. "Listen and obey" as the goodwife Ann Romney said. And they will.

Look what they were able to do in California with Prop 8. This is fulfilling a prophecy, we're talking about here. Complete validation for a paranoid religion.

Please, tell me my fears are groundless.

Things I Thought I’d Never Live to See

I turned 60 this year, and I never thought I'd live to see...

The Supreme Court deciding who is President

A Congress and President do away with habeas corpus

US citizens held without trial for years

Americans using, and supporting, torture

The U.S. Government financing bank fraud

Removal of New Deal protections on banking

The American Government murdering U.S. citizens

An American President lying us into a war of aggression

One of America’s two parties completely losing its mind

Corporations running the government

A disgraced, twice divorced man running for President

American politicians deliberately sending American jobs overseas

People desiring Biblical law for America getting any political power at all

Mormon Church's Prior Baptism Of Dead Jews Could Raise Concerns For Florida Voters

Mitt Romney's problem with evangelical Christian voters has been well documented.

But as the Republican presidential nomination fight heats up in Florida, a Mormon rite that leaves many Jews seething could prove awkward for the candidate in a state that's home to more Jewish people than any other besides New York and California.

The religious rite is proxy baptism for the dead. According to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or Mormon Church, these posthumous "blessings" are intended to "save" ancestors and others who weren't baptized in life or were baptized "without proper authority."


When Newsweek magazine asked Romney if he personally had performed posthumous baptisms on anyone, author Jonathan Darman wrote, "he looked slightly startled and answered, 'I have in my life, but I haven't recently.' The awareness of how odd this will sound to many Americans is what makes Romney hesitant to elaborate on the Mormon question."


Which is why the Catholic Church won't let the Mormons have any church records.
