For those hoping that conservatives will come to their senses sometime soon and
understand that climate change is a real and present danger to our planet and
our survival, stop hoping. Not happening. The fossil fuel industry has been
successful in using paid politicians, lobbyists and hacks to turn an issue that

Mitt Romney and the leaders of the GOP are lying 24/7. All lies all the time. It is going far beyond the usual electioneering distortion. Rather than bothering to respond, Democratic candidates can just deny whatever the GOP say unless they can prove what they say. In other words, they are guilty until proven innocent. A reversal of American principle, but true to life at this time.
What truly worries me is that we might elect Mitt and a Congressional majority of Republicans. Their lies won’t stop at our borders and on election day. What will foreign leaders think of our new leaders, if we elect Mitt and company? They will be unwilling to trust the leadership of the US to tell them the truth.

‘Mitt Romney is speaking to the NAACP. The audience has been polite as he droned on with his usual campaign rhetoric sprinkled with “chocolate” to seem relevant. Romney said that he would reform education with more charter schools. He did not mention his big dollar donors, the Koch Brothers, who are fighting integration in schools in North Carolina. (See my earlier post.) Mitt Romney said he would support “traditional marriage” unashamed by his pandering. When he said he would support repealing of “Obamacare“, Romney received a chorus of boos. He also said he would rid the government of every non-essential federal program. He must have been referring to his adoption of the Paul Ryan Budget where there are severe cuts to social programs like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. Mr. Romney did not speak of jobs or how he would specifically lift the black community out of historical poverty. This was not a great speech and, IMHO, he did not convince any blacks to give him their vote.
The speech just ended. Analysis by pundits on CNN was lukewarm. —GoodOleWoody
Lindsey Graham is trying to sell the idea that the Caribbean and Swiss bank
accounts Romney set up to avoid paying U.S. taxes is all part of the American
way so everyone needs to just shut up.
As long as it was legal, I’m OK with it,” Graham said. “I don’t blame anybody
for using the […]

Since Republican victories in 2010 numerous state legislatures have instituted a large number of voting laws designed to address a virtually nonexistent problem. The instances of voter fraud in the United States is miniscule as a percentage of the voting public. Many of those instances are attributed to clerical errors rather than intentional acts. Despite this, 34 states have passed new voting rules. This leads to the question, if voting fraud is virtually nonexistent then what is the motivation to spend so much time, effort and money to curtail it?
