Mitt Romney the Casanova

Mitt Romney loves women…so much…

He’s a regular Casanova!

He even loves gay women. You believe that, hmnn?

Mitt Romney

Well of course he loves you NOW that he needs YOUR vote in November.

He loves you so much he just hates the way President Obama took your job away…

The way you were better off under George Bush!

The way that he will give you and your gay partner  jobs, but left to him if either of you get hurt on that very same job that he so wants you to have — neither of you will be able to go see the other in your sick beds.

And if either of you die, the survivor won’t have any rights.

But what do THOSE things matter, long as he gets you as job! Unlike Obama who just wants to take your job away and give you your rights…

Under WHOM do you think you have the BEST choice of having BOTH a job AND your rights? Romney or Obama?

YOU choose. You’re not as stupid as Romney seems to think you are!!

Mitt Romney and Republicans love women .

They loves women so much…

They are determined to support only judges who will strip you of your rights to control your ovaries…your vagina…and your eggs.

A woman's RIGHT to choose!

It is their love and RESPECT for Women’s Rights that keep them bowing down at the altar of Misogyny…to those who call a women “slut” and “prostitute” because she dared to agitate for the right to contraceptive care…much as MEN have the right to Viagra! What a stiff!!

It is because Romney and Republicans love women so much that they oppose any judge who will support Roe v. Wade.

Just think: Daddy Romney loves you so much that he will choose for YOU if you should have an abortion or not.

He will decide for YOU if you can get the Morning After Pill – or not! 

Romney and Republicans love women so much they tried to cut funding for the Federal Head Start program that provides low-cost educational, health, nutritional, social and other services, including childcare for poor women.

According to Wikipedia, Head Start is one of the longest-running programs to address systemic poverty in the United States. As of late 2005, more than 22 million pre-school aged children had participated. But then what did Romney say about poor people: He’s not concerned about the very poor?

Female Auto Worker. Yes, they do have those in Detroit...and elsewhere!!! You'd think somebody from Michigan would KNOW that!!!

Romney will decide for you if Planned PARENTHOOD should stay open to provide health care to women. Remember the Susan G. Komen debacle…they will find a way! A sneaky way…

They will go after Planned Parenthood with guns blazin’ and try to CLOSE it because it provides abortions. They will NOT understand that the agency does not use federal funds to provide abortions and that Romney’s own money is safely stashed away in the Caymans or where-ever he has it, far we hope, from abortions!

By the way, apart from his old company Bain — how many jobs have Romney created with his personal wealth?  Lets’ see: his accountants to count his money, his tax advisers to tell him where to hide it, the contractors building his many houses.  I get it. 

Mitt Romney loves women so much that he doesn’t give a hoot if Immigration agents raid a factory and herd the women off to a shed in Texas and leave the kids alone in Massachusetts and elsewhere – in the care of other women. Oh sorry. I forget. These are immigrant women. Illegal immigrant women. They don’t count. THEY are NOT women. Not really…

Mitt Romney loves women so much that he opposed the Dream Act. If any of those immigrant kids were born of mothers and NOT pods…then those mothers are NOT women!

Mitt Romney loves women so much and is so concerned with jobs for women that he opposed bailing out the auto industry because all those men who lost their jobs were married to other men!

Auto Industry Jobs make a Comeback! Thanks to Obama...

Far as Romney is concerned, there were NO women working on those assembly lines because of course, ALL women are at home, like his wife, taking care of their kids, driving around in several Cadillacs and then reversing into their multi-car garages with elevators that take them up and down all day. 

How can Obama compare with that...elitist that he IS!!!

Cash for Clapboards & Kennedy’s Replacement

Wouldn’t it be nice if the government decided to buy foreclosed homes – invite people to turn in homes they no longer want or can afford – like homes that are not energy efficient? The government could then buy these houses, rehabilitate them and sell them to people who can afford them! 

I suggest we call that program: “<strong>Cash for Clapboards” (CACLAP)</strong>. 

Its forerunner, “Cash for Clunkers” seems to have: 

•          Ignited under new car sales.

•          Thrilled General Motors (GM) so much, the auto maker decided to lend dealers money to run the program…while those dealers wait for the government to reimburse them!

•          Increased vehicle production. GM is adding 60-thousand vehicles in the third and fourth quarters and re-hiring about 1400 laid-off workers. 

Under The Car Allowance Rebate System (CARS program), owners traded in their gas guzzlers. That made them eligible to get from 35-hundred to 45-hundred-dollars towards buying a newer model that meets or exceeds higher mile-per-gallon standards. Dealers fronted the money and the government reimbursed them. 

According to the Associated Press, the government’s “Cash for Clunkers” program has: <em>revived business at car dealerships, taken gas-guzzlers off the road and given a badly needed boost to struggling auto factories. By many measures, the government’s Cash for Clunkers program has been a success</em>”. 

Well then! My “Cash for Clapboards” (CACLAP) program could similarly inject a substantial infusion of cash into the struggling housing market/industry. 

Under CACLAP, homeowners could trade in that draughty old colonial for that new, energy-efficient detached with the big yard that you’ve been drooling over! Water saving, energy efficient appliances, solar panels on the roof – just think of it! 

Cash for Clunkers ends Monday, August 24, 2009. I say we start “Cash for Clapboards” immediately! 

*****  

I don’t support changing the Massachusetts Succession Law because a situation has developed that could benefit Democrats. 

The Boston Globe says Senator Ted Kennedy (who’s been battling brain cancer since May 2008) has written to Governor Deval Patrick asking the governor and legislative leaders to change the succession law. Kennedy apparently wants to ensure that Massachusetts will have a Senate vote when his seat becomes vacant. 

Massachusetts governors used to have the power to fill Senate vacancies. 

But in 2004, democratic lawmakers didn’t want republican Governor Mitt Romney to fill Kerry’s seat with a Republican if Kerry became president. So Democrats (who also held the majority back then) changed the law and created a five-month vacancy. 

Now that little self-serving trick could come back to bite democrats. President Obama and Democrats may face a close vote to pass health care legislation…and if Kennedy is out of the running, that’s one crucial vote short…unless that seat can be filled quickly! 

I tend to be pro-Democrat, but that doesn’t mean I support everything they do…or want to do. 

Why don’t I support it? <strong>Because it was Democrats who changed the law when it didn’t suit them – and if they changed it solely to tie Romney’s hands – what makes them think they can just as opportunistically change it now</strong>? 

Sometimes just having the required votes and the ability to do something…<em>doesn’t mean you should do it! </em>I like it when people fall into holes that they’ve dug for others! 

At one time Rome was the superpower. At one point it was Egypt. The Huns ruled, the Aztecs ruled…and more recently, Europe ruled. Empires come…empires go. Civilizations come and civilizations go! 

Learn from this. Politicians come and politicians go. Parties come and parties go! 

<strong>Whichever party has a majority should understand that this state of affairs will never last! What use is history is we never learn from it?</strong>

Bailouts and Inevitability

We’re now being told to invest in construction and telecom stocks…

Because the president elect has outlined a plan to pour billions into infrastructure to jumpstart the economy. And some of that will include broadband.

Mr. Obama was the guest on NBC’s Meet the Press, Sunday (December 07). He outlined his plans for a path for long-term, sustainable economic growth.

OBAMA: …and that’s why I spoke in my radio address on Saturday about the importance of investing in the largest infrastructure program–in roads and bridges and, and other traditional infrastructure–since the building of the federal highway system in the 1950s; rebuilding our schools and making sure that they’re energy efficient; making sure that we’re investing in electronic medical records and other technologies that can drive down health care costs. All those things are not only immediate–part of an immediate stimulus package to the economy, but they’re also down payments on the kind of long-term, sustainable growth that we need…

BROKAW: …the real question in the stimulus program that you have just described and as you shared with, with the American audience in your radio address is how quickly will it mean jobs out there across America and how much is it going to cost and who’s going to pay for it?

OBAMA: Well, I think we can get a lot of work done fast. When I met with the governors, all of them have projects that are shovel ready, that are going to require us to get the money out the door, but they’ve already lined up the projects and they can make them work.

So there we have it, from the horse’s mouth, so to speak.

• On another talking point…the auto industry, I’m picking up hints that the auto bailout is just a stop-gap measure to keep the economy from sliding deeper into recession. Seems to me the U.S. auto industry, especially GM and Chrysler, are on their deathbed and will eventually go bankrupt. Giving them a loan will only keep factories and jobs from disappearing now, and NOW (in an already weakened economy) is NOT the best time for this to happen. Technically, they’re going on life support…but there won’t be any donors.

So, does the president elect think the Big Three deserve to survive? Brokaw asked:

OBAMA: Well, I think that the Big Three U.S. automakers have made repeated strategic mistakes. They have not managed that industry the way they should have, and I’ve been a strong critic of the auto industry’s failure to adapt to changing times–building small cars and energy efficient cars that are going to adapt to a new market. But what I’ve also said is, is that the auto industry is the backbone of American manufacturing. It is a huge employer across many states. Millions of people, directly or indirectly, are reliant on that industry, and so I don’t think it’s an option to simply allow it to collapse…

(Mr. Obama believes any government assistance should come with conditions. He also thinks it’s NOT a good time for such a large industry to go belly-up.)

…some people have said let’s just send them through a bankruptcy process. Well, even as large a company as GM, in ordinary times, might be able to go through a Chapter Eleven bankruptcy, restructure, and still keep their business operations going. When you are seeing this kind of collapse at the same time as you’ve got the financial system as shaky as, as it is, that means that we’re going to have to figure out ways to put the pressure on the way a bankruptcy court would, demand accountability, demand serious changes. But do so in a way that it allows them to keep the factory doors open.

• Like agent Smith told Neo in the movie: The Matrix: (Pretend Neo/Mr. Anderson is the auto industry.)

“You hear that Mr. Anderson? That is the sound of inevitability. It is the sound of your death… Goodbye, Mr. Anderson”.

Some would argue that Neo survived. Remains to be seen how much life imitates the movies!
