Mormons and Charity

Whether Mitt Romney wins the Republican nomination for the presidency or not, his serious-contender candidacy has sparked an explosion of empirical research on Mormons in the United States.

In due course, this research should serve not only to enhance public respect for the Mormon minority, but also to give Catholics some clues about how to strengthen their own faith community.

In a report issued in January 2012,“Mormons in America: Certain of Their Beliefs, Uncertain of Their Place in Society,” a research team representing the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life found that most Mormons are regular churchgoers and that more Mormons (73 percent) believe that “working to help the poor” is “essential to being a good Mormon”.

Try all you may, but the World's press and Economic experts says otherwise. No one takes notice of a ignorant tea baggers rants, its all about forgeting what Republicans do in power. The damage to American reputation abroad and damage to the world economy. Starting with Reagan finishing with Bush. That was the start of it all. The only one with Romnesia is Mitt himself and his followers hoping that the rest will be the same
American's remember the Iran Contra, proping up the Shar of Iran, Watergate, Arming Saddam in Iraq , then bombing the crap out of him, Arming the Taliban with Reagan who inviting them to the whitehouse only to go to war with them later & finally the show stopper Bush and his war of lies and blowing up the world economy.

I'm assuming that you have it handy.
The numbers may be correct. You will recall Bush left Afghanistan, with Ben Laden talking on a radio hold up in a cave, to go and hunt for WMDs in Iraq. Sad for the 4 killed in Libya, but where was the outcry for the 4000 dead in Iraq looking for a Bush/Dick lie?

Can ANY of you Repubs explain this to us stupid Democrats?
.
Mr. Romney also has millions invested in a series of Bain funds that have a controlling stake in Sensata Technologies, a manufacturer of sensors and controls for vehicles, aircraft and electric motors that employs 4,000 workers in China. Since Bain took over the operation in 2006, its investment has quadrupled in value. Bain continues to own $2.6 billion worth of Sensata's shares.
Two years ago, Sensata bought an operation that made automobile sensors in Freeport, Ill. At the first meeting with the plant's 170 workers, Sensata managers announced that by the end of 2012 all the equipment and jobs would be relocated, mostly to Jiangsu Province. Workers have staged demonstrations, pleading for Mr. Romney to intervene on their behalf.

Chinese engineers, flown to Freeport for training on the equipment, described their salaries as a pittance compared with Freeport wages. Tom Gaulrapp, who has operated machines at the factory for 33 years, said he fears he will go bankrupt after he loses his job on Nov. 5.

"This goes to show the unbelievable hypocrisy of this man," he said of Mr. Romney. "He talks about how we need to get tough on China and stop China from taking our jobs, and then he is making money off shipping our jobs there."

Media Skip 2,000th Afghan War Death On Obama's Watch
The latest incident of Afghan forces firing on NATO troops underscores the lack of media attention to an important milestone and the fact that most Afghan casualties have occurred on this president's watch.

Major meltdown in process!!

My party, unfortunately, is the bastion of those people -- not all of them, but most of them -- who are still basing their positions on race. Let me just be candid: My party is full of racists, and the real reason a considerable portion of my party wants President Obama out of the White House has nothing to do with the content of his character, nothing to do with his competence as commander-in-chief and president, and everything to do with the color of his skin, and that's despicable.

If Bush did hid job, Afghanistan would have been over when Obama took office.
"real dumb"
You get dumber by the post.
No matter what we did or do in Afghanistan and Iraq it makes no difference. Both countries are going to continue to be mired in their sectarian battles. The terrorists are going to continue to blow up their own people including many women and children. No way we should be involved, our involvement does nothing good for us or any one else.
Get it through your sickfucking head, you will not you are to stoopid.
