More of the Sure Signs that Romney is in an “Uphill Battle”

Since Obama and his paid underlings are so very very confident of their inevitable victory that they’re now paying “protesters” $11/hr.

In Ohio.

(H/t LC Cheapshot).

Yep. That sure is a sign of a confident campaign alright. And they didn’t even manage to buy very many rent-a-crowd members either.

Sigh. Time to step up on the Imperial Soap Box and be Morale Officer again, and Harry V we’re not, but here goes:

Today, we’ll talk about something other than the relentless propaganda from the Obama/Media cabal, skewed polls and the unintended consequences of our own Eeyores’ attempts to be “objective”, because we’ve beaten that horse to death already. That’s not to say that we won’t re-animate it in the future by sticking some wires up its tender bits so we can deliver another beating at some point in the future, because we probably will. We enjoy that shit too much, is all we can say. Because we’re sick. The good kind of sick. What’s that? How would you like to have these battery cables attached to your scrotum? Thought so.

No, let’s take another part of the inevitable and predictable cycle of a presidential campaign, the brutal attack ad avalanches.

Yes, we know that we’re already hearing, mostly from Eeyores, the plaintive wails of “why haven’t they started yet? We were promised they would start right after the conventions!” Also, flying cars. But we digress. Sometimes we hear it from ourself too, which is mildly disturbing when you’re standing in front of the mirror in the morning, trying to shave. Because we look forward to that bit. It is going to be so much fun!

But it would also be pretty much entirely useless to start it up right now, five weeks out. Because we all know, if we think about it for more than a minute, that the average voter isn’t going to remember jack shit at the voting booth unless it happened during the previous two weeks. Also, the effect of ad dollars spent now can easily be wiped out in a matter of days by any number of sudden unforeseeable events between now and November, because voters are fickle. A bump is only worth the cost if it’s still there on election day.

Now is not the time to be carpet bombing the airwaves with expensive ads. It would be a stupid waste of resources. Now is the time for slowly rolling out a few to establish a steady drumbeat to keep the juices flowing, but nothing more than that. And that’s what we’re seeing. Then, in the last two weeks before the election, you open the floodgates.

Also, if you’re living in a solid red state (like us) or a solid blue one, you’re not going to see any ads at all. It would be, again, a pointless waste of necessarily scarce resources. Why blow millions of dollars in order to lose by 7 points instead of 9, dollars that could have made an actual difference in a swing state? We’re just going to have to resort to YouTube and the campaign site for our thrills, but that’s OK.

Incidentally, and briefly forgetting our promise to not talk about polls this time, this is what you should be looking for on the TeeVee: If you suddenly start seeing Obama ads (and we’re not talking about the Ogabe Steno Pool Media here, we’re talking about actual “I’m president Obama and I approve of this message” ads), then your state is up for grabs, no matter what the everhowling frack the Obamedia and Eeyores are telling you, because Odumbfuck is not exactly flush with cash like he was in 2008, so he’s not going to waste a penny on ads in your state unless he and his staff think they can lose it. THAT is an indicator of which side your state is leaning, better than any “poll.”

So, even as you fight to keep your lunch down at the sight of another Obama ad, rejoice in the fact that you live in a battleground state that Teh One™ thinks he might lose. And if you live in a state that he picked up in ’08, rejoice twice as much. Just please, no running around outside doing the nekkid happy dance. You can’t vote if you’re locked up on public indecency charges. Unless you’re voting Democrat, of course, in which case you can and will vote even if you’re dead. Particularly if you’re dead.

So back to the impending avalanche of ads against Obama. It’s coming. Mitt has the money, although it wouldn’t hurt if you were to throw some shekels his way if you have any. We have, and we would have never thought we would do that.

Will it work? Well. We’ve been thinking, and we want you to think about it too. Remember the primaries? WE sure do. We remember only too well how Mittens deliberately, surgically ad-bombed one after another of our preferred candidates out of the race. And we hated him for it, still do, because, needless to say, he’s not exactly our Dream Candidate and he didn’t exactly play fair. We’re sure you all feel pretty much the same way as we very much doubt that any of you had him at the top of your list either, so you feel the anger and betrayal too.

But one thing we also noticed in between grinding our teeth and wanting to strangle him with our bare hands was how bloody effective his campaign was in those bombardments. He took the competition out, systematically, one at a time, and it never failed. Every time somebody would creep up in the polls, he’d call in an adstrike and they’d be gone after the next primary. Without fail.

At the time our main reaction, in between entertaining fantasies of beating him up with nail-studded fence posts, was “sure, and then he’ll go all McCain when it comes to facing the real enemy”, but we’re not so sure about that anymore. The more we study him, the more we’ve watched his attacks and counter-attacks against Obam-bam, the more we’ve studied his history before his presidential ambitions, the more we recognize a personality type we’ve seen many times before, and that’s the personality type we like to call the “fixer.” Somebody whose sole purpose in life is to identify something he wants and then do whatever it takes to get it. Somebody who sees a problem and then sets about fixing it. They can be giant arseholes, and we’ve certainly seen enough of that from him in the primaries, but they also tend to get shit done and they’re absolutely ruthless when it comes to getting it done.

Initially, we saw him as just another jackwagon who just wanted to be president because he hadn’t checked that off on his CV yet. He certainly does want to be president, we don’t think there can be any doubt about that considering how long and how hard he’s worked at it (while being a ruthless arsehole at times if that’s what he felt it took), but we no longer think that he just wants the job because it’s a cool title, the way Obambam wanted it. We think he wants it because he sees the current state of the United States as yet another problem for him to fix, he sees it as just another Staples, headed for the sewer, that he can somehow turn around. Another clusterfuck like the Olympics that he can somehow turn into a success story. He sees a challenge, and that is like red meat to a starved lion to a personality type like his, if we are reading him right.

And it also means that he’ll happily resort to whatever it takes in order to get to where he can take on that challenge because, fuck it, he wants it and he wants it bad. There’s a mess, and it needs to be cleaned out. Which brings us back to the impending ad-alanche of doom and dirty fighting. Will it happen? We’re sure it will, because he isn’t going to let anything get in the way of him charging in to show ’em how it’s done. Will it work? Look at his track record from the primaries. Did it work then? It fucking obliterated his opponents. We don’t know how he did it, but we can’t recall a systematic campaign of destruction in U.S. politics as effective as that one.

Keep that in mind.

Does that mean that we suddenly love the Mitt? Not by a long shot. We disagree with him on a number of points just as vehemently as we always have, our unflinching and arrogant positions on just about anything under the sun haven’t changed one iota, we still believe that he’s not near conservative enough, we’re not even sure that he’s conservative at all, but we DO know that four more years of Obungles is going to fuck up this nation beyond any hope of repair by civil methods and that, at the moment, is all that matters.

If we are to even hope to be able to repair the damage that has been done without doing it the old fashioned way, which we’re fairly certain that none of us wish for, then we have to start by getting Obama kicked out of 1600 Penn Ave. And Mittens, sadly, is the only tool we have right now.

And we’re optimistic, to get back on point, that he has what it takes to utterly destroy that jugeared clownshoe in the weeks leading up to the election because, no matter how little faith we have in his conservative bona fides, we know that he is somebody who doesn’t enter a fight unless he’s determined to win, no matter what. Failure is not an option. He’s no “it’s my turn but I don’t really want to piss of the New York Times” doddering media whore like McVain, that’s for sure, and the debates will be highly entertaining, to say the very least.

We mean, seriously. Can you see O-Stutterfuck without his teleprompter lasting more than five minutes against somebody like Romney, because we sure can’t. Couple that with a relentless barrage of carefully aimed attack ads right before the election.

This is going to be FUN!

    Not pointed out by many, but look at the timing on releasing his tax returns. Another move like Solyndra.

    That was just a small tactical move, just wait until they haul out the theater and strategic stuff. Buy popcorn, lots of popcorn.

    Jackboot is right. The timing on the tax returns was brilliant. He gives the libs what they want (and then some) but does it on his own timetable and therefore controls the news cycle on this. If I were O-Blam Blam I would be afraid, very afraid. O-Blam Blam is running against a guy who is a winner, a guy who truly plays to win and will accept nothing less. O-Blam Blam had to have watched the primaries and saw how Mitt absolutely dissected his opposition with a surgical efficiency. he knows he is next.
    Obama if he is going to pull some martial law bullshit, he better do it now because if he waits to 2 weeks prior to election day it will be too late. At 2 weeks out Obama will be too busy being carpet bombed by negative ads in EVERY swing state that a “manufactured crisis” will be received not as a crisis that can’t be wasted but more of another in a long chain of events Obama can’t control ala Arab Spring.
    This is going to fun.

    Yes…… with a huge BUT. I live in Pennsylvania. O’bumbles won this state last time around by 7 points, but every sane poll puts PA as a point or two race right now. With the new voter ID law and a shrinking population in Philly I don’t think there is anyone who has quite figured out how the vote is gonna go this year. I’ve seen a bunch of Obama ads, so I know he is at least a bit worried about PA, but nothing from Romney. Erasing a two or 3 point deficit in the end of October is possible, erasing a five to seven point one is not. Romney needs to spend at least a little here NOW to keep it competitive.

    LC SecondMouse growls and barks:

    Four more years of Obama will destroy everything that is worth caring about in this country. Game over, in that scenario. Even DJ will not like what he sees after several years of that.

    I am one of those people that thinks there is a much higher likelihood of Romney being elected than is reflected in the news coverage and in the polling. There are pissed-off people in every state of the Union. Some of the surveys would have us believe that Obama enjoys a margin among likely voters, then when you start digging into the details we learn that his numbers are dropping among moderates, independents, Jews and Christians, and that the enthusiasm bias (% of likely voters saying their candidate must be elected) in the survey results has done a 180 since the 2008 election, with conservatives now having the upper hand. Makes no sense – these things do not go together.

    But it would be extremely naive to think that Obama and the liberal machine will lie down for this. In fact, if arrangements have been made to attempt to engineer the results of this election, then what we are seeing today is exactly the right way to play it – keep placing doubt in the minds of conservatives, so that the outcome will not be questioned.

    I read something awhile back regarding these polls that basically said that after four years of anyone that openly opposed Oblama being automatically labeled as a racist has had the effect of people not being willing to be honest about the subject, especially to strange voices over the phone.

    This is a setup. If Romney wins big it will be labeled voter fraud. If he wins by a small margin, it will be voter disenfranchisment. Personally I hope they keep it up. If the wavys think its in the bag, some will stay home. What the eyores should be doing is using the poll to motivate people to get out the vote. I sincerely hope Romney times his “blitz” accordingly to motivate the “low info voter.” No matter what, this is not going to end well. Ide say there is a 80% probability Isreal is going to move immediately after the election. I’m seeing that there papers are saying no action till spring. Can you say disinformation campaign?

    A ruling handed down on September 13th by the D.C. District Federal Court has finally made clear what many have known for years–that the Obama Administration’s Iran policy was initiated and advanced by a group with illicit, hidden ties to the Iranian Regime and financed by the U.S./Israel- hating George Soros.
    In 2009, Barack Obama turned over virtually all responsibility and authority for foreign policy negotiations with Iran to Trita Parsi and his National Iranian American Council (NIAC). Founded by Parsi in 2003, the Washington-based NIAC is a powerful lobbying group that is “…widely considered the de facto lobby for the Iranian Regime in America.”

    Cougar1978 growls and barks:

    OK, Deej’s Mullah Obama mancrush aside, here’s why WE will win….

    1. WE are the majority. We’re paying the taxes. We have jobs. We have more weight despite the sneering elitism some here and there display. Sorry RINOs and “experts” you can guzzle a nice pot of Shut Your Fucking Snatch. You bunch of R-unts can go mute and maybe go motionless and back to the earth as fertilizer. We might be known as the 53%, and by some of you, the unwashed masses, hoi paloi, ragamuffins, serfs, etc…. Yet, WE THE PEOPLE, are going to get sick of your shit and we will get back in your face.

    2. Your arrogance is pissing us off more, and giving incentive. Between President Dumbass and his smart ass sneers, and his wife’s nasty-tude, well, it’s a turn off. And you telling us how bad our side and our candidates are is getting old. You haven’t stated why yours are truly better, you pulled the just because bullshit. You and the media act high and mighty. However, if you can get off your knees from being infront of Barry Hussein and unlock your lips from his sack, maybe, just maybe your contradiction of being high and mighty but actually being Obama’s oral bitches wouldn’t turn us off. However, as of now, your hypocrisy is riling us up.

    3. Not our first choice, but your negative ads are pushing us toward Mitt NOT Barry Hussein. It’s no secret me and His Majesty were not going for Mitt Da Mormon in the primaries, at all. However, he’s who we have. I say he’s better than McCain, somewhat, but I wanna see him tear up Ojugears in the debates. Media analysis and Obama cum-guzzling aside, your gushing over him and bashing Mitt, WHO IS MODERATE, is unifying not just with Mitt, but more importantly, we are going to do our best to DESTROY YOU motherfuckers!

    4. Negative Campaigns don’t always work. Dan Webster, in Florida, was trashed, slandered, and lied about by Alan Grayson in Florida’s 8th Congressional District. Alan decided to call Dan, Taliban Dan, because Webster dared bow to another God, who wasn’t a Cocky Kenyan Commie Cocksucking Cuntdrip. Dan also spoke on Ephesians 5, which Grayson cut, chopped and made it sound like he was for wife abuse and spousal homicide, yet the ENTIRE VIDEO made it out and the whole chapter of Ephesians 5, including ‘husbands LOVE your wives…’ rang our. Grayson LOST by over 15 % of the electorate there. Webster is projected to win this year also. Grayson is running again, like a rectal sore, he needs to go away but won’t…. Also, in Texas, RINO David Dewhurst aka Lt. Governor ran against Ted Cruz in the GOP Primary for the GOP Candidacy for the US Senate. Dewhursts people threw mud at Cruz. They had advocates do the same. Dewhurst went on the negative in the debates. Cruz told more truths. Dewhurst LOST by double digits, in the Texas Primary, and Cruz is going to be Texas’ next Senator. And, Ted, is Tea Party….. So, Barry Oblowjob, please, keep going negative and keep talking down to us. It’s having the opposite affect.

    5. Polls are bullshit. I’ve never been sampled, and many others. It’s not random. It’s complete caca- falls into the old addage- There’s lies, there’s damned lies, and there’s statistics….. Yeah, you talk high and mighty how the majority is with y’all….. Yeah, you said that in 1980 in Reagan vs. Carter, parrotted that AGAIN in 1988- Bush v. Dukakis, and in 2000 and 2004 you liars bullshitted how Bush would lose. He won, TWICE! and your supposed best candidates, Al Bore and John Frankenstein Kerry got their bitch asses handed to them. Yeah 1992, 1996 and even 2006 and 2008 were BAD. That was our fault, our divisions our weakness, but we learned. You motherfuckers have denied God, told Israel to fuck off, and are leg-humping every sheikh and mullah you can find. Pretty sad and disturbing. But know what goes up, for you, will go down.

    And you fuckers are going to hit earth faster, than Ralphie May skydiving from a airplane at 10,000 feet or less. Remember the Yucatan Asteroid? Remember Carter in 1980 and Mondale in 1984 (whom the media favored as the winner then)? Yep, you gonna crash! And I’m gonna laugh in your smug fucking faces!

    WHOA, Lil’ Rott, Not so fast. As I’m sure you know Governor Quinn (D) defeated Bill Brady by less than 32,000 votes winning only 4 counties of 102. Whereas Mark Kirk (RINO) defeated Alexi Ginoulious (sp?) D-worm) by 60,000 winning all but three counties. In Crook County, Quinn garnered 900,000 votes to Brady’s 400,000 with another 100,000 going to other knuckleheads. 2010 being an off-year election the machine still used all the tricks in the book to get out their votes.

    This year being a presidential election, you must remember the police and fire in Chicago vote dem locally, Repub Nationally. The Chicago teachers can’t be too happy with Obama not coming to their aid, either. The suppression of the dem votes, as well as the youth vote is key- if they don’t turn out as they did in 2008- Obama is toast.

    Of the remaining votes, 2.4 million outside Cook County, to cover the 500,000 Cook County vote margin, Romney has to pull something of the order of 63% which, if the Brady and Kirk campaigns are any indication, is very possible.

    The poll of 1,382 likely Illinois voters was taken Sept, 5 by We Ask America. It had Obama at 54 percent to Mitt Romney’s 37 percent. Another 3.3 percent said they would vote for a third-party candidate and 6 percent were undecided.

    Remember, Obama’s numbers are depressed and the TEA party has been waiting for this vote. A Romney visit to Jackson County would seal it for him, but for now, don’t tell the dems, they are about to get sandbagged.

This go around, the suburbs are in play. Our economy is shot in a big fucking way. The socialists have been in control for 30 plus years, how many govenors have we sent to prison? Some folks are just a wee bit pissed about the “chicago machine” and recognize that the term is a euphemism for corruption, just as “gangsta” is for criminal. Here in my small town the number of outwardly supportive Oblama indicators is waaaay less and this is with many of our citizens working in unionized plants. Short story long, there is hope for this state, but is small as everybody knows its the “chicago way” to vote early and often. It just blows my mind that these people equate being corrupt as somehow being tough.

That’s because it will immediately be put to use — if your $5 (for example) goes toward hiring an organizer in Akron, Ohio, she’ll have more time to do her job and reach more voters.

    Take a look at what unions are doing for Camden New Jersey.

    The reason, officials say, is that generous union contracts have made it financially impossible to keep enough officers on the street. So in November, Camden, which has already had substantial police layoffs, will begin terminating the remaining 273 officers and give control to a new county force. The move, officials say, will free up millions to hire a larger, nonunionized force of 400 officers to safeguard the city, which is also the nation’s poorest.

    Hardly a political battle of the last several years has been fiercer than the one over the fate of public sector unions. But Camden’s decision to remake perhaps the most essential public service for a city riven by crime underscores how communities are taking previously unimaginable steps to get out from under union obligations that built up over generations.

    Unions, always looking out for the “little guy”…..

    Ah, but didn’t you just make my point? The “American Culture” has evolved and continues to evolve. Some of you just don’t (or won’t) like where it will end up.

    No I did not. Not in the context of the Amish at least, the “culture” of the original Europeans to settle here was vastly different. They have been steadfast to that original culture of their ancestors vice “refusing to embrace” any current culture.

    Like I said, technically it could be conceived as splitting hairs but there is a difference – by stating they refused to”embrace” current culture you put them into a different category – one that lumps them into the same as recent immigrants who like La Raza or some Middle Eastern groups – IOW recent arrivals – that flatly refuse to embrace American Culture.

    The Amish didn’t just immigrate – they have been here since the start – see the difference?

    @ DJ
    I’m with you in the context of your overall position, butt unfortunatley there are some things that need to be “tweaked”. the burden of assimilation is on the assimalatee not the assimilator. Why are the streets signs in Dearborn written in arabic? Why do I have to press 2 for english? You come to my country for the benefits then you have to accept any potential negative (culturally speaking). It amazes me that humans tend to immigrate to a area to shed the negatives of their culture only to try to establish a mirror od their former residence. It is the human condition. I have no problem whatsoever with anyone praying to any “god” they desire. What I do have a problem with is when that “god” tells them its ok to kill, minimize or in any other way not tolerate another that does not share the same beliefs. Its just that simple. It is unreasonable to come into my house as a guest and expect me to modify my pantry to accomadate your cultural tastes. And that is where we are. These people are not contributing to the betterment of our culture, they are demanding inclusion whether it be positive or negative which undermines the essence of the original thing that motivated them to seek our shelter to begin with.

    It’s the difference I mentioned above between LEGAL and ILLEGAL immigration. As a general rule, those that come here legally, even if the first generation has trouble assimilating…… don’t shit on the larger American culture. They work hard, provide for their families, and the second generation is completely assimilated. The problem comes in with illegals, cause they have no way to truly join the community, they become the lowest common denominator. (I know there are a bunch of examples otherwise, but they are exceptions) I’ve said it before and I will say it again, illegal immigration is a form of slavery, only in this case there is no slave master. It is a recipe for badness.

Leave it to an independent-minded, thoughtful and innovative Tea Party activist, political veteran Bruce Donnelly to change the lens on what’s going on in Illinois and how things may not be as they appear.

    What amuses me as I read through the comments is the way that DJ, while making some interesting points in terms of the changing cultural attitudes throughout history (without being willing to ask whether those changes are actually beneficial or not), ignores every challenge to prove that his stated moral equivalency of Christians and Muslims is correct. And that is of course be neither he nor anyone else can do so. In the Christian Order magazine, I saw an interesting side by side comparison of Jesus and Muhammed. One of the most poignant was this:

    Jesus: Nobody died in his presence, ever.

    Muhammed: Many died in his presence; he killed them.

    While this is short on details, (and one can argue that the two thieves crucified with him disprove the point, but I think that is splitting hairs), it nevertheless I believe is an excellent comparison between Christianity and Islam.

    Oh Deej, the straw men do come out to party on your whole “culture” argument don’t they? I mean hell, we Conservs all must be “white, Anglo Saxon, Christians” who are bigoted and intolerant of all others to the point of terror at the very thought of burritos, bagels and baklava being served on the same street. “Eeeek, brown people! Guard your culture boys! We’re gonna get violated by Taco Bell and Einstein Brothers.”

    Come the FRICK on. That is some simple-minded, sophomoric bull-business right there. Firstly, how in the hell are we all suddenly guardians of Anglo-Saxonology? My grand-cestors were Celts, an ethnicity about ten centuries older than Anglo-Saxons, and we damn well wouldn’t let you call us “English” to our face. Most Americans at this point aren’t purebred progenies of Plymouth Rock. We have had wave after wave of non-English (and non-English speaking) extremely diverse groups immigrate and we actual real conservatives (not the cartoon character versions you just drew) don’t give a rats ass where folks are from, what the look like, how “funny” their accents are or what their cooking smells like. How FRICKING stupid that I even have to state that obvious fact to you, to anyone…ever. Have you ever read the history of Irish in America? It’s not like we were white or English speaking or part of the culture when arriving either. Suddenly, all pale skinned people are just frightened, lily-white, country club devotees (oh, except you and your liberal “ilk”)? *Ha ha, I said “ilk”.

    YOU just don’t get it. The “culture” of America isn’t about how many ethic varieties of foods you can consume in a five mile radius, how cool you think you are because you have collected a first-name-basis “friend” in every shade available or how swell it is to vilify other “white people” because you are all immuned to the false-accusations you lob since you are open-minded enough to vote for Marxists.

    We are culturally Americans for much less superficial reasons. We are ONE NATION UNDER GOD not several ghettos patch-worked together by an oppressive national government. I say the “diversity” lie is just that. It is a fascistic weapon of cultural destruction used to suppress and marginalize the fundamental tenants derived from our American heritage, our REAL culture. You don’t know this heritage because you have accepted the leftist version of history and cultural assessment and therefore you accept and repeat their flawed equivocation based arguments as truths. You see Conservs as needlessly frightened for the sake of the nation because any and all change is just a good and maybe better to you than America 1.0. You don’t particularly like this nation when you really get down to it. You believe we are selfish, over-fed, intolerant, bigoted, ignorant, and just not worldly enough.

    I say it is liberals/leftist who think in terms of black and white on this issue; America and it’s culture and history is always wrong and all other cultures are always right and at the very least not at all worse in any important way. Of course you aren’t frightened for the future of a nation that you don’t really, truly understand or care much for in the first place. If you want to fundamentally transform this nation, then you don’t love it. If someone said, “I love you, but I want to fundamentally transform you.” You would be pissed. America is pissed. I’m pissed for her. Not frightened…Pissed.

    You don’t appreciate the ways in which this American culture is superior? Really? Individual liberty, limitless opportunity, religious and expressive freedom, economic superiority, right to vote and participate in government, rule of law and militarily secured existence doesn’t do it for you? THAT is our culture. That and our fundamental understanding that rights including life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are endowed by our Creator and inalienable even by the government itself.

    What you don’t acknowledge is that there are many, MANY who don’t agree with that culture, the REAL American culture. They want to “fundamentally transform” us. The Islamic extremists being the most obvious and dangerous threat, but there are others and they aren’t all “foreign”.

    But you keep lobbing those accusations. Anyone who espouses love for America is a racist, sexist, fill-in-the-blank-ophobe and you are oh so very nuanced with your shades of gray that aren’t really. After all, any old culture will do. Who cares what happens to the American ideal so long as America 1.0 is dead and buried just like you and Obama want it.

    DJ. You continuously bring up that both parties have extremists and they do, but what you neglect to deliniate is the percentage of “extremeists” that exist, the differences in the “extreme” behavior, and the rate that the moderates of both sides ostracize the extremeists. Here the whack jobs like that group out of kansas are openly denounced and actively minimised by the moderate christians and it is done without violence. Over there the moderates will not openly deny and shun the extremists. And why is that? Its cause the extremists will fucking kill anyone that does so.

    Also I disagree with your whole “we will all be mulattos” theory. The cross race breeding is no where near a rate high enough to support the theory, and cross race breeding is disparged by every individual culture. This is also part of the human condition, the whole birds of a feather thing. It is easy to see that humans willing segregate themselves. We are more comfortable and secure residing and interacting with our own tribe. The tribe shares a built in commonality. I’m surprised that your knowledge base of applied psychology doesn’t understand this fundamental behavior.

    The whole “one world govt / culture” theory is nonsense as the human will never give up its natural behavior. The best we will achieve is a tolerance of others and that is all. And it damn sure isn’t going to come anywhere close with a bunch of governments that exist that oppenly discriminate against women, homosexuals, and anyone that doesn’t practice the state approved religion. Saudi, Iran, Kuwait, the whole middle east comes to mind.

    One more point, Terrible-
    Bruce Donnelly:

    Here’s another fact to consider. In the March primary, Obama got 402,495 votes in Cook County out of his statewide total of 652,583.
    Meanwhile, the Republican primary candidates added up to 933,454 votes. Of these, only 198,320 came from Cook County. That consisted of 151,292 from the suburban Cook townships, with the rest from Chicago.

    The Dem turnout in Chicago and suburban Cook was far below the contested 2008 primary, when there were 2,038,614 Dem votes in Illinois, of which 1,318,234 went to Obama. Of those, 743,686 of the Obama votes were from Cook county. The “undervote” in the 2012 primary in Cook County was around 8%, meaning that 8% of the few Dem voters who showed up chose not to even vote for Obama, even though he was unopposed. In some suburban townships the undervote was 15 – 20%.

    The point is that Chicago voters may still support Obama, but suburban Cook is a different story. Romney could actually win Illinois because suburban Cook and the collar counties can combine with the downstate Republicans to defeat his limited base in Chicago, where many former supporters may be very frustrated.

The other was a military style attack using light and medium arms on two seperate but related targets that was visited by “protestors” AFTER the shooting stopped and four americans were deceased.

    At one point the meme was to excuse the protestors as they were just poor undeucated people that somehow became aware of a video which at the time if the incident was obscure. Apparently (even though they can’t afford interwebz ) they learned of iths video and then immediatly began to work on their protest signs… english. Then as they were “protesting” decided that chanting “Obama Obama we are all Osama” seemed like the prudent thing to do. Wonder what they meant by that?

The idea that the government should be run like a “business”, which by its very nature is completely anti-democratic.

    Oh fucking please! That DNC cow pie is decades old and has more whiskers on it than Methuselah. Plus it is one hundred percent wrong.
