Now that the entertainment is over – now that the world’s longest sporting event is finally over for FOX and CNN, Americans will have to go back to the day-to-day lives they managed to avoid during this latest Presidential election.
The reality bites once again, that in 2012, America remains more divided than ever in terms of wealth, in terms of values, in terms of Prozac, and in terms of tribal identity politics.
Romney seemed liked Wall Street’s ideal President, but he wasn’t ruthless enough it seems. You have to really want the power. Mitt put on a good show, but played too soft to actually win.
Obama proved that he was worthy of the banking elite’s endorsement four years ago. Remember when Obama left the campaign trail with his dancing partner John McCain in 2008, to help to spearhead the bankers’ takeover of the White House in 2008 (Bush Jr was fishing at the time), pushing through Democratic support for the first banker bailout? Obama had to do it because the Wall Street banking elite ‘made him’ in terms of his candidacy, and they could also break him too. Obama’s family connections with the Geithners didn’t hurt either, nor did Soros’ love of Obama. He proved that he could follow orders.
Obama’s campaign strap line this year was “FORWARD”, an interesting choice of word, blunt and brutal – one straight out of Mao Se Tung’s China, or Stalin’s Russia. Is this a hint of things to come?
America has never been so divided as it is today in 2012
Over a million signatures from 47 states to secede so far. Florida is #5 with the most signatures.

I associate the word "forward" with Custer's last stand and his last word.

Interesting the other context.

Oh, I don't know - I've read every post so far, and while they don't have a patch on 'THE DEBIL' for salaciousness, they rival his/hers in relevance.

I say keep it coming - it's some of the most intelligent prose I've found here so far - but unless he/she is ad-libbing, it might be a good idea to cite the original source.

Of course it fights for something. It fights for human rights, it stands for human rights. It's about trying to banish human suffering, protecting the environment, caring for the sick and the elderly, about access to affordable healthcare that many don't even have because the high cost of healthcare is beyond their reach. It shouldn't have to be that way. Greed is the number one reason our economy was ruined first by Bush and his administration. Their cause wasn't with the average American citizens. Much of our manufacturing went overseas at that time and illegal immigration ran rampant for the purpose of cheap labor. If New York got rid of all the illegals, that state would shut down.
That's not true of Barack Obama, One. He's a corporatist, just like Romney - but in the words of Billy Covington, he's got a "...slightly hipper rap."

You like Carol because she is as big a liar and fool as you are!!
Your state went for Obama, as did Carol's. And you still don't get it!!
And your ODD is eating away at what's left of your brain!! Carol lost hers 2 years into Obama's first term.
She's been a blithering idiot since.
I lost faith in my fellow countrymen long before two years into Obama's first term. My brain was just fine.

I would not have voted for Romney. Imo, he would have been worse for average Americans. As for Barack, we shall see. Companies are hiring again and unemployment has gone down some. I hope Republicans will work with the president in resolving this countries issues and fiscal matters. I just saw earlier that the talks were constructive and positive. I hope so.:)

No it wasn't a popular "sang" (I love payback).

You're the leech on society, Ed.
As much as anyone else is.
You're exactly what you accuse others of.
Look in the mirror, ya freakin' hypocrite!!

As usual you post from ignorance. Damn right I take advantage of Social Security and Medicare, I was forced to pay into it the debacles for more than 50 years, still pay. But you know what, if I did not collect Social Security and did not use Medicare my life would not change a wit.

That's not hysterical? More hyperbolic rightwing mumbo jumbo. Lmao, you prove repeatedly what extremes you will go to in order to make yourself appear right. Think it's time for you to make good on your promise,,,take your purse and go home. Come back when your fever breaks and reality sets in, if that's possible. Your party went down in flames thanks to nutjobs such as yourself. Fox has made a blithering idiot out of you. Keep watching, they depend on tools like you!!
Nah, I decided to leave my purse right where it is and hang around for the big show.

Reinstating Jerusalem, "God" language met with boos at DNC:


The Associated Press put it this way: Democrats have changed their convention platform to add a mention of God and declare that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.
