Everything You Hated In High School and More: Willard Romney

20120608-095929.jpg

He’s been known to bully kids for not looking “right”. He even had a Michigan State Trooper uniform and a red siren he’d place on top of his white Rambler,impersonating a police officer while in college. His roommates found the whole thing creepy. Recent reports also show he enjoys playing narc on his neighborson the beaches in front of his multi-million dollar La Jolla spread.

But these incidents are just a small dose of the cantankerous character that is Willard Romney. Simply look at the tactics of his attack dog and campaign guru Eric Fehrnstrom. He’s a man who posts unflattering pictures of his opponents while exercising to demean them. Mitt is a regular guest and favorite of Fox News, a network who criticized Secretary of State Hilary Clinton for lookingoverweight and tired.  They claimed she’s “not even trying” (to look like one of their skanky news models).  Of course they ignore the fact she has a grueling schedule and has a job of immense importance, unlike their frivolous jobs of spouting drivel and party rhetoric every day. But the worst thing about Romney is how he had nothing but the finest education his family’s fortune could buy, but believes the rest of us should stay stupid.  It’s one of Mitt’s 3 S’s: Sick, Scared and Stupid.  He already has denounced his own universal health care plan, Romneycare (aka Obamacare), he’s hawkish on increasing our military and insists the Obama administration, with all its foreign policy tribulations isn’t keeping us safe and he’s for drastically cutting education spending and sticking it to poor children.

What’s most telling is the position his colleague and Bain Capital Executive Edward Conard who believes the wealthiest 1% aren’t rich enough….  This is one of his Mormon Bain buddies speaking, so you know he’s on the same page as Willard philosophically.    Watch this Jon Stewart interview where he demolishes Conard’s greedy garbage.  He has absolutely no response when The Daily Show host presents him with real life scenarios of Bain and the like unfairly screwing the working person with a recent account.  Romney, Conard, Fehrnstrom and the entire GOP are not concerned with the common man’s plight. If anything, this man, since his days of “hijinks” in high school and college, has only gotten more out of touch and downright vicious to anyone not in his class. He proved this with his abysmal record for job growth at Bain Capital and especially as Governor of Massachusetts as well as his corporate favoritism.  This man is a mean-spirited snob who has no business anywhere near the job of governing the nation.  He is not for the “common good,” he is only for the good of the 1%, and he’ll show that in very callous and unforgiving ways.  His past performance guarantees that.

Just So The World Understands the GOP in the USA « vegasjessie.

 

As we’ve learned from recent polling, George W Bush is the least popular living president. What does he and his party represent? I found the perfect summary for those living in and out of the USA.

GOP Beliefs

You can rest assured, Willard Romney will strictly adhere to these principles. After all, he was a severely conservative governor that panders to the far right without giving any of their insanity a second thought.

More Fun With Conservative Jesus « vegasjessie

More Fun With Conservative Jesus « vegasjessie.

 

After yesterday’s depressing defeat of the middle class and the decimation of unions, I needed to find a pick-me-up that explains it all. There’s got to be a reason so many poor and middle class folks vote completely against their own interests. Don’t get me wrong, there were a bunch of good Christians who voted to recall Scott Walker. But many of those Christians were outnumbered and outspent by a conservative faction of alleged followers of this Jesus guy.

Alas, I found it! It’s right here in the Conservative Bible, also synonymous with the Book of Mormon.

20120606-083529.jpg

No need to worry about anyone else. The Koch brothers and Citizen’s United have taught us all how to value selfishness as a virtue. Basically, we’ve come full circle with Gordon Gekko’s greed is good philosophy and we can thank our Supreme Court for reaffirming this fallacy. As a Christian nation, we must justify not caring one iota about our neighbors in need. Just look to the GOP “good book” for answers. How else can we rationalize cutting WIC and SNAP?

I wonder what Joseph Smith really thought about ethics, as he is, after all, Mitt Romney’s prophet. Many have claimed he was a swindler and a charlatan, so an absence of ethics are of no consequence. Willard and the GOP are simply faux followers of Christ’s teachings, which are possibly fabricated.

Two thousand years was a long time ago. Impossible to unequivocally prove he said anything. We have holes in our knowledge of something as recent as Colonial American history, so why is this Aramaic account considered infallible and unimpeachable? Not to me. Especially if we base our characterization of his ancient followers on who loudly and proudly claim allegiance to him today. It’s a way to get folks to follow with blind allegiance and donate money. That’s really what this Christian faction is all about. A perfect front for the GOP.

Do We Need More Military Spending, Willard Romney? « vegasjessie

Do We Need More Military Spending, Willard Romney? « vegasjessie.

 

Can you believe Willard Romney wants to increase military spending by $2.1 trillion?? The Roman Empire overextended itself militarily and that lead to its eventual demise. Can’t we learn from history? Not if history is no longer taught in our schools. Willard and his cronies want to defund and privatize it to the point where Americans won’t even be able to read this chart.

Remember, a vote for Willard is a vote to bankrupt America. He’ll embroil us in more wars. Don’t doubt this for a second. Obama2012!!

President Obama Makes Kids Gay? Nice One, GOP! « vegasjessie

President Obama Makes Kids Gay? Nice One, GOP! « vegasjessie.

20120607-092404.jpg

As expected, President Obama spoke out in favor of gay marriage and the religious nut jobs on the Right went totally apeshit. We now know the level of lunacy they have achieved.

Check out this 14 year old who hosts a conservative (also synonymous with bigoted) Internet radio show. During one of his recent broadcasts, which are syndicated by Spreaker Web Radio, the teen explains how he is “sickened” by watching some of his friends “turn to” homosexuality, which he says the Obama administration encourages.

He claimed in a May 26th broadcast that homosexuality is a belief?? So unbelievably typical of right wing Christian extremists. He is heralded by conservatives for his extremely ignorant and misguided opinions.

As a flip flopping police officer impersonating, spineless political whore, Romney will probably request a photo op with this hate-mongering kid. After all, he’s buddy buddy with Donald Trump and his Birther claims

Hate oozes from the pores of Willard, the GOP and all their minions. This Caiden has been indoctrinated young to carry out their sinister and sadistic agenda.

 

 

No One Preaches Hate Better Than America’s Christian Right « vegasjessie

Ku Klux Klan kids

There are good people in every walk of life. Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus and any other mono or polytheistic group has their share of good people. But there are so many hate groups in this country which teach children to discriminate, ridicule and hate good and young. Christians, including Mormons, have taught their children they are superior to minorities and gays for ages. Obviously, the slavery and Jim Crow laws in our nation’s sordid past have shown our proclivity towards institutionalized discrimination and hate. The KKK has experienced an increase in membership since Obama was elected.

20120601-065403.jpg

Christian Terrorist Groups like the KKK compare themselves to Jesus. The goals of the KKK included, from an early time on, an intent to “reestablish Protestant Christian values in America by any means possible,” and believe that “Jesus was the first Klansman. They used horrible violent techniques like lynching, tar and feathering and public hangings to further their barbaric evil objectives of white domination. Of course the Old Testament is filled with hateful Klan-like tenets such as slavery ownership, mass genocide (Deuteronomy 7:1-2), and death for homosexuality. However Jesus preached none of these things, allegedly (sorry, I’m a skeptic heathen).

20120601-070550.jpg

Watch as this FOUR year old addresses his congregation. He sings ain’t no homo gonna get into heaven. Notice the thunderous cheers and applause?He has no idea what a homo is, but now he knows he’s supposed to hate them. We’ve all seen the Mormon Church’s position on the issue of homosexuality too.

Boyd Packer, LDS Preacher speaks of the evil espoused in the good book towards homosexuals. However, if their goal in life is to become more
like Christ, why, then, do we fixate so much of our attention on
condemning homosexuality, a subject that Christ did not address a single
time in his earthly ministry?
. Obviously the millions of dollars Willard Romney and his Mormon Church spent on passing Proposition 8 in Californiashows their utter disdain for homosexuals and their damned “rights.”

20120601-072215.jpg

Another group, Focus on the Family, seems utterly obsessed with teaching their kids and teens to hate gays. The Day of Dialogue is a day where it’s ok for GLBT teens to be teased and taunted. It’s the answer to the teenagers’ noble desire to address gay awareness and tolerance with the National Day of Silence. Coincidentally, on April 19th (same day as the OKC terrorist attacks…) Focus on the (hateful) Family simultaneously planned their event. Their plan was tointimidate and harrass gay and lesbian youth. Is this what Jesus would do? Apparently many children are raised to think this way. Thankfully there are some good ones out there who recognize this as wrong. However, with the continued rise of the TeaParty and the religious right, it’s not likely hateful parents will stop teaching their kids to hate too, all in the name of Jesus.

Stop Your Solyndra Lies Romney! « vegasjessie

Stop Your Solyndra Lies Romney! « vegasjessie.20120603-075513.jpg

Last week we saw the smug Willard Romney appear in front of now bankruptSolyndra, touting it as a failure of the Obama Administration. Period. It was100% President Obama’s fault, right? Hell no! Solyndra is allegedly to the Political Left what the Keystone XL Pipeline is to the Political Right. Except Solyndra never threatened to endanger natural resources and lives .

Perhaps Captain Flip-Flop may want to check a few FACTS:

1. The Solyndra deal is more than three years old, and started under the Bush administration, which tried to conditionally approve the loan right before Obama took office.

2. CLAIM: Email Saying Deal Was “NOT Ready For Prime Time” Was Warning About Financial Risk FACT: The Email Did Not Voice Any Concerns About Risk Of Loan

3. It’s often claimed that the Solyndra loan guarantee was “rushed through” by the Obama administration for political reasons. In fact, the Solyndra loan guarantee was a multi-year process that the Bush administration launched in 2007.

4. You have to read half the story to learn that the loan guarantee was made in 2009 and the audit was done in 2010 after market conditions had sharply worsened! The media never explains that the company itself raised $250 million from private investors after the supposedly devastating audit!

5. In October, 2011 car thief and richest man in Congress, Darrell Issa, hosted a breakfast fundraiser for Willard with a lobbyist from SOLYNDRA. Wonder what that’s all about?

6. The company’s backers included private investors who had diverse political interests. The loan comprised just 1.3 percent of the Department of Energy’s (DOE) overall loan portfolio. To date, Solyndra is the only loan that’s known to be troubled. The loans were guaranteed by $10 billion in a Congressional fund. This was not a colossal loss by the standards of any Bush Administration debacle! The taxpayers have sure suffered much more from Halliburton. Let’s talk about that, Willard!

Mitt Romney also had his own history of supporting green energy while severely conservative Governor of Massachusetts. He created a clean energy fund portfolio and was very enthusiastic about the industry, something he’s obviously against now. Of the six companies listed in the renewable energy fund, three are now bankrupt.

But he’s the business man. The master of the private sector. He critiques President Obama for his lack of private sector experience, as if politicians need that. Romney never mentions his stint as a politician, because frankly, he sucked pretty bad in the jobs department. Unlike Obama, Romney took office during an economic uptick. Massachusetts had a net job growth of 1.4 percent under Romney. However, that was far slower growth than the national average of 5.3 percent.

Romney is completely full of shit. Period. I wish he didn’t own the media so we could truly see how much of a liar this man is. But don’t hold your breath.
