You think Obama cares about the 47%? What happens when the 47% become the 57% and the 43% can not longer afford to take care of the 57%?
<quoted text>
You are wrong. Mitt wants to improve the economy so that those 47% become the 43%. You equate giving people money to caring about them. They why don't you let a homeless person move into your home?
I have no problem caring for people who can no longer care for themselves but caring for drunks and druggies Cousin Pookies is a waste of money.
You know a Cousin Pookie or two, don't you?

Mitt had no jobs plan that he could articulate Rogue. Saying he had a five point plan did not make it so. Obama exposed his five point plan during the debates as a one point plan to cut entitlement programs just to line his pockets with the proceeds. The same model Romney had always used at Bain.

Most of the country got it. Romney’s vulture capitalist mentality precluded him from giving a shit about anyone he deemed a 47 percenter. He said as much on the now infamous 47 percent video. That Romney had no clue nor did he care who these 47 percenters are should have excluded him from any public office let alone POTUS.

“It’s safe to say that most of the 46.4 percent referred to by Romney are in the lower income brackets. According to the most recent Gallup polls of registered voters, 37 percent of those making less than $36,000 a year indicate they plan to vote for Romney. Moreover, as we noted earlier, a sizable chunk of 46.4 percenters are retirees, and among those 65 and older, Romney leads Obama by nine points, 52 percent to 43 percent. According to a Rasmussen Reports poll of likely voters between Sept. 10 and 16, 40 percent of those making less than $20,000 said they plan to vote for Romney; 50 percent of those making between $20,000 and $40,000 said they supported Romney. The Pew Research Center similarly found in its latest poll that 32 percent of those making less than $30,000 and 42 percent of those making between $30,000 and $50,000 support Romney — as do a plurality of seniors”

What a stupid man that Romney!

The "real world" is where Romney lost in a landslide to Obama, and where the Democrats picked up seats in the Senate and House. Whatever planet you live on isn't in the US.

Your side lost, big time, to the sanity of the DEmocrats.

Comprende? The real world is where we don't discriminate against blacks or Latinos or gays or women, and we take care of those that can't provide for themselves.

Get used to it, because the Republican party is moving over to the center and extremists like you will need to either form your own party or join the fascists, which is about where you belong.

15. Numbers 31:32

These were the spoils which remained of the plunder taken by the fighting men: 675,000 sheep, 72,000 cattle, 61,000 donkeys, and as for persons, 32,000 young women who had had no intercourse with a man.

14. Genesis 16:8

And he said “Hagar, Sarai’s slave girl, where have you come from and where are you going?” She answered,“I’m running away from Sarai, my mistress.” The angel of the Lord said to her,“Go back to your mistress and submit to ill treatment at her hands.”[Pictured above]

13. Genesis 15:9

The Lord answered,“Bring me a heifer three years old, a she-goat, three years old, a ram three years old, a turtle dove and a young pigeon.”

12. Deut. 25:11

When two men are fighting and the wife of one of them intervenes to drag her husband clear of his opponent, if she puts out her hand and catches hold of the man by his privates, you must cut off her hand and show her no mercy.

11. Genesis 19:8

“Look, I have two daughters, virgins both of them. Let me bring them out to you and you could do what you like with them. But do nothing to these men because they have come under the shelter of my roof.”

10. Deut. 28:53

Then because of the dire straits to which you will be reduced when your enemy besieges you, you will eat your own children, the flesh of your sons and daughters whom the Lord has given you.

9. Judges 3:21

And Ehud reached with his left hand, took the sword from his right thigh, and thrust it into his belly. And the hilt also went in after the blade, and the fat closed over the blade, for he did not pull the sword out of his belly; and the dung came out.[Pictured above]

8. Mark 14:51

A young man was following Him, wearing nothing but a linen sheet over his naked body; and they seized him. But he pulled free of the linen sheet and escaped naked.

7. Genesis 38:9

Onan knew that the offspring would not be his; so when he went in to his brother’s wife, he wasted his seed on the ground in order not to give offspring to his brother. But what he did was displeasing in the sight of the LORD; so He took his life also.

6. Ezekiel 16:17

You also took the fine jewelry I gave you, the jewelry made of my gold and silver, and you made for yourself male idols and engaged in prostitution with them.

5. Kings 2:23

Then he went up from there to Bethel; and as he was going up the road, some youths came from the city and mocked him, and said to him,“Go up, you bald head! Go up, you bald head!” So he turned around and looked at them, and pronounced a curse on them in the name of the Lord. And two female bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the youths.[Pictured above]

4. Deut. 23:1

No man whose testicles have been crushed or whose organ has been cut off may become a member of the Assembly of God.

3. Leviticus 24:16

Whoever utters the name of the Lord must be put to death. The whole community must stone him, whether alien or native. If he utters the name, he must be put to death.

2. Exodus 4:24

And it came to pass by the way in the inn, that the Lord met him, and sought to kill him. Then Zipporah took a sharp stone, and cut off the foreskin of her son, and cast it at his feet, and said,“Surely a bloody husband art thou to me”.

1. Ezekiel 23:19

Yet she increased her prostitution, remembering the days of her youth when she engaged in prostitution in the land of Egypt. She lusted after their genitals – as large as those of donkeys, and their seminal emission was as strong as that of stallions.

Legendary investor George Soros retired in 2011 and turned his hedge fund into a family office, returning just under $1 billion in assets to outside investors. Soros also brought in a new investment officer to help oversee the remaining assets belonging to his family and his foundations. His fortune is down due to a reported drop in performance but also because our new estimate subtracts sums we believe he manages for his foundation. Born in Budapest, Soros survived the Nazi occupation of Hungary and went on to study at the London School of Economics before launching storied hedge fund firm Quantum Fund Management in 1969. Outspoken on world economic policies and an unapologetic proponent of European integration, Soros has recently called the design of the euro "very flawed" and described the situation as an "existential crisis" for Europe. Since 1979 Soros has given away $8.5 billion to human rights, education and public health groups; $6 billion has gone to international causes and estimated $400 million to fight poverty

Among his notable recent gifts:$160 million toward improving the lives of Europe's Roma minority and $100 million to overcome barriers faced by African American boys and men. Soros has also committed $150 million to combating corruption and promoting transparency in governments around the world. His efforts have resulted in the creation of organizations such as Revenue Watch, which works to ensure that citizens benefit from their country's natural resources. In August 2012, at his 82nd birthday party at his summer home in Southampton, Soros announced that he and his girlfriend, Tamiko Bolton, are engaged. Bolton is 42 years Soros' junior and will become the financier's third wife. The couple plans to marry in the summer of 2013.

Where's the New Covenant?
During my interview with the Christian Police Officer, Dave Tatsak, on Episode 14 of Dogma Debate, he repeatedly referenced the 'New Covenant' when I brought up one of the chilling reminders of Old Testament beatings, stonings, or animal and human sacrifices.

I've heard this argument several times, and it basically goes like this: "Since Jesus came and died for us, we no longer have to go through that, but we are now under the perfect law of liberty in the New Testament."

So, As Officer Dave said those things, and mentioned "that was the Old Covenant" I let it pass without challenge. My mistake.

A very sharp listener by the name of Andrea caught it, and wrote me this morning and said "Where in the Bible does it talk about the New Covenant?"

I am familiar with the mention of the "law of liberty" in James 2:12, but couldn't really send her there for an answer, because it is only a mention of the term, not a definition of terms for this mysterious "New Covenant" that Christians often quote.

It made me realize, I never asked that question, and I didn't know the answer. So this question is for Officer Dave Tatsak, and any other New Testament Christian Apologist:

Where in the New Testament does it say that we are to no longer follow the Old Testament, no longer stone misbehaving children, and no longer kill gays? Moreover, the Old Testament is very specific for laws concerning behavior, worship, sacrifice, and even foods that we can and can't eat on certain days.

So, if we are under a New Covenant, what are the terms and conditions of this new contract we are supposed to live by, how do we know which parts of the Old Testament are still valid, vs.which ones to ignore, and where can we find the scriptures that prove it?

Of course they are not going to vote for Republicans after Obama expressly targeted them with lies to get their vote.

And you should hope you are not one of Obama's gay useful idiots. There is a long line of dead gays in his past associations. We wouldn't want you to follow in their footsteps.

To the citizens of the United States of America from Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

In light of your failure in recent years to nominate competent candidates for President of the USA and thus to govern yourselves, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective immediately.(You should look up 'revocation' in the Oxford English Dictionary.) Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will resume monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths, and territories (except North Dakota, which she does not fancy).

Your new Prime Minister, David Cameron, will appoint a Governor for America without the need for further elections. Congress and the Senate will be disbanded. A questionnaire may be circulated
> next year to determine whether any of you noticed. To aid in the transition to a British Crown dependency, the following rules are introduced with immediate effect:

1. The letter 'U' will be reinstated in words such as 'colour,''favour,''labour' and 'neighbour.' Likewise, you will learn to spell 'doughnut' without skipping half the letters, and the suffix '-ize' will be replaced by the suffix '-ise.' Generally, you will be expected to raise your vocabulary to acceptable levels.(look up 'vocabulary').

2. Using the same twenty-seven words interspersed with filler noises such as''like' and 'you know' is an unacceptable and inefficient form of communication. There is no such thing as U.S. English. We will let Microsoft know on your behalf. The Microsoft spell-checker will be adjusted to take into account the reinstated letter 'u'' and the elimination of '-ize.'

3. July 4th will no longer be celebrated as a holiday.

4. You will learn to resolve personal issues without using guns, lawyers, or therapists. The fact that you need so many lawyers and therapists shows that you're not quite ready to be independent. Guns should only be used for shooting grouse. If you can't sort things out without suing someone or speaking to a therapist, then you're not ready to shoot grouse.

5. Therefore, you will no longer be allowed to own or carry anything more dangerous than a vegetable peeler. Although a permit will be required if you wish to carry a vegetable peeler in public.

6. All intersections will be replaced with roundabouts, and you will start driving on the left side with immediate effect. At the same time, you will go metric with immediate effect and without the benefit of conversion tables. Both roundabouts and metrication will help you understand the British sense of humour.

7. The former USA will adopt UK prices on petrol (which you have been calling gasoline) of roughly $10/US gallon. Get used to it.

8. You will learn to make real chips. Those things you call French fries are not real chips, and those things you insist on calling potato chips are properly called crisps. Real chips are thick cut, fried in animal fat, and dressed not with catsup but with vinegar.

9. The cold, tasteless stuff you insist on calling beer is not actually beer at all. Henceforth, only proper British Bitter will be referred to as beer, and European brews of known and accepted provenance will be referred to as Lager. South African beer is also acceptable, as they are pound for pound the greatest sporting nation on earth and it can only be due to the beer. They are also part of the British Commonwealth - see what it did for them. American brands will be referred to as Near-Frozen Gnat's Urine, so that all can be sold without risk of further confusion.

10. Hollywood will be required occasionally to cast English actors as good guys. Hollywood will also be required to cast English actors to play English characters. Watching Andie Macdowell attempt English dialect in Four Weddings and a Funeral was an experience akin to having one's ears removed with a cheese grater.

11. You will cease playing American football. There is only one kind of proper football; you call it soccer. Those of you brave enough will, in time, be allowed to play rugby (which has some similarities to American football, but does not involve stopping for a rest every twenty seconds or wearing full kevlar body armour like a bunch of nancies).

12. Further, you will stop playing baseball. It is not reasonable to host an event called the World Series for a game which is not played outside of America. Since only 2.1% of you are aware there is a world beyond your borders, your error is understandable. You will learn cricket, and we will let you face the South Africans first to take the sting out of their deliveries.

13.. You must tell us who killed JFK. It's been driving us mad.

14. An internal revenue agent (i.e. tax collector) from Her Majesty's Government will be with you shortly to ensure the acquisition of all monies due (backdated to 1776).

15. Daily Tea Time begins promptly at 4 p.m. with proper cups, with saucers, and never mugs, with high quality biscuits (cookies) and cakes; plus strawberries (with cream) when in season.

God Save the Queen!
