Why – Mr. Soros?

Soros home

One of billionaire George Soros’s many homes. New York state.

The modern-day left-wing RADICALS who protest against the people who live in mansions like these…take money from people who live in mansions like these!

So, you want to PROTEST Trump? And…?

Are you going to make us aware of something about Trump WE DON’T ALREADY KNOW? WHAT IS your point? (Apart from exercising your democratic right to protest, to gather, to speak — which, incidentally, you try to DENY to others.)

Do you have some shocking EXPOSE about Trump? For example: is Trump really Satan in disguise — OR Hitler OR Elvis? Or even Tupac?

Trump protest

IF you are going to proclaim that Trump is misogynistic, bombastic, racist, imperialist, narcissistic, unrealistic, an attention-getter, race-baiter, not to mention jet-setter…WE KNOW!!!

We TRULY don’t NEED you to point out Mr. Trump’s flaws. Those of us who’ve been following the Primaries, debates and Caucuses, news and talk-shows…we KNOW. Even people who are NOT following just know – it’s blowing in the wind! CAN’t miss it!

We’re unlikely to see a placard at your protest and go: “Oooohh – No Wall!” So, you want to occupy the Capitol and will “demand that Congress listen to the People and take immediate action to save our democracy. And we won’t leave until they do or until they send thousands of us to jail.”

Bring paper to write your last will and testament – or enough money for bail. Plan to say there until you die! Or someone sells something on eBay to raise money to bail you…

Sessions - Trump

Sessions (yellow tie) and Trump

Mitch McConnell


I don’t see Mitch McConnell or Jeff Sessions granting any concessions to you…that they won’t give to President Obama. Or maybe they’ll turn tail and run….who knows?

Now why would thousands of you want to go to jail to make Congress LISTEN to you. How stupid is that? There is a much EASIER WAY to make Congress listen to you. It’s called an Election and it’s coming up in November. If you VOTE in the same masses that you are protesting with – then the political landscape will change…and Congress will listen.

Sending “thousands” of you to jail means building MORE jails which you oppose! Don’t BE silly…well, I know it’s HARD, but, really – DON’T be silly! Try!!! 

Trump rally.jpg

We want MORE of this???

Trump rally protestsMaybe, you will cause a riot and Trump’s supports will go: “Just look at those free-speech killing Liberals trying to trump Trump. Let’s go home. I really can’t vote for somebody that Liberals don’t like!”

Please stay home! DO NOT go to Philly, (Philadelphia) the City of Brotherly Love, to DISRUPT Trump…

Do not interfere with Trump…LEAVE Trump alone.

Nothing you do will derail Trump. Everything you do may likely STRENGTHEN Trump. In addition, you will make Democrats look bad. Crazy commies! 

Republicans are already HANDING you the election gift-wrapped with a “you’re fired” bow! Why is it so hard for you to be quiet – and silent – and just watch!? Why must you always want to do? WHY? 

I loathe extremes, equally…be they anarchists on the LEFT or Separatists on the RIGHT!

Federal land

Mr. Soros, republicans claim YOU are funding the anti-Trump Protesters. If you really, really want to help…let me count the ways:

• I need a house. Nothing expensive. Just 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, biggish yard, could probably fit on your patio…
• Many of the “protesters” need help with their student/other loans
• Help some families facing foreclosure
• Come to Boston and pay for Summer Camp for inner city kids
• Housing groups desperately NEED funding to help tenants fight off higher rents and displacement due to gentrification
• Help build a pleasant housing complex for the working poor who are being displaced by sky-high rents
• Firefighters need new equipment
• Police need money to run stay-out-of-trouble programs for troubled kids
• Excellent, non-egoistic third-party candidates need funding
• Need I go on?

Rupert Murdoch (glasses) net worth: 12 Billion and George Soros…23 Billion

Far be it for ME to tell those “millionaires and billionaires” on Wall Street whose greed is killing America (are you on Wall Street Mr. Soros?) HOW to spend their money – but we’d all be BETTER SERVED…if you invested in the above…instead of chaos!

No hatin’ in the city of Brotherly Love, bro…

Murdoch's ranch

Murdoch’s ranch in California: $20 milliion

We’d ALSO be better off if Rupert Murdock hadn’t imposed his “outlook” (to put it mildly) on America (via Fox News) and ended up making half the population hate each other. I think Murdock and Fox News (News? ha!) are largely responsible for creating today’s GOP chaos. Let’s not have another millionaire or billionaire starting another trend. Think politics BEFORE Fox…

PS: Any groups want to protest that one person owns so much living space? I will fund those protests…shouldn’t cost more that $20. I can afford that…

Romney’s Pre-Existing Political Calculation

Or, to put it bluntly: The Emperor Has No Clothes!

Mitt Romney’s “pre-existing political calculation…”

Did you hear the latest news story about Romney and Republicans – how prominent Republicans are criticizing Romney for just TALKING without offering any SUBSTANCE? Who knew they had it in them?

Of course this is TYPICAL Mitt Romney – we in Massachusetts can tell that to the rest of America – and DID tell America, but did America listen? Heck NO. Republicans let Romney buy the election with his millions (Romney spent 6-million-dollars of his own money on the governor’s race in Massachusetts) because they thought those very same millions would crush Obama.

Shark! Of the fishy kind…

The Wall Street Journal is owned by a conservative, republican-sympathizer/donor Rupert Murdoch, who also owns Fox News. When leading conservatives feel an itch to make a point in the mainstream media, the same “mainstream media” they HATE so much, one of the places they use to express their opinion is in the Wall Street Journal.

In an editorial in the Journal Tuesday (9/11/12), conservatives wrote: “Mr. Romney’s pre-existing political calculation seems to be that he can win the election without having to explain the economic moment or even his own policies.” It is NOT democrats saying that – it is Romney’s OWN fellow Conservatives calling their party nominee’s position: “pre-existing political calculation.” Do you think that they are just finally getting it? NO, No, no. 

Romney standing before his OWN sign calling to: REPEAL and REPLACE the federal health care act…before he backtracked – again!

They KNEW of his pre-existing political calculation BEFORE  the primary; they KNEW about it when they turned their backs on Jon Huntsman, they KNEW about it when they embraced him at the convention. So does that make them equally guilty…because some of them like commentator George Will were never in Mitt Romney’s corner and most are still NOT in his corner!

NOW, though, they want Romney to come up with specifics! Seriously!? You want specifics from somebody who says one thing yesterday, something else today and yet a different thing tomorrow about the SAME issue. Like:

  • Universal Health Care is good!

According to one website that tracks Mitt Romney’s positions on the Issues: the idea of COMPULSORY health insurance was first put forward by REPUBLICANS! The idea first came from conservative think tank The Heritage Foundation in the late 1980s, when Democrats were pushing employers to provide health insurance. Republicans (ever the protector of big business) suggested that instead of forcing EMPLOYERS to pay for the coverage why not make EVERY AMERICAN buy health insurance? And so we got the “Individual mandate”. 

Naturally, with the HYPOCRISY of Republicans, THEY turned away from their own idea!!! Apparently, in the early 1990s, many Republicans championed the “Individual Mandate”. Then President Clinton came up with a plan to FORCE companies to cover employees…but Republicans KILLED it 1994.

Governor Romney signs Health Care Reform with MANDATES (Tax?) in MA. Making History in Healthcare – a “History” he is NOW running away from!! Yes, that IS Ted Kennedy behind  Romney!

When Mitt Romney became governor of my home state of Massachusetts (2003), HE resurrected the idea of the “individual mandate.” Under his universal insurance scheme “Romneycare” whenever a Massachusetts resident files STATE taxes,  he/she MUST show that he/she has Health Insurance, wither private or state (called Mass Health) OR you face about $200 in fines.

n 2006 as then governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney called it “A Republican way of reforming the market.” and that “To have people show up at a hospital when they get sick, and expect someone else to pay, that’s a Democratic approach.”

OK Mr. Romney…

BUT that was what he said when he was governor.

Conservatives are calling Mitt Romney’s lack of specifics: “Pre-existing political calculation”

During the Republican Primary when his Republican challenger Rick Santorum pounded Romney on Health Care Reform, Mitt Romney suddenly HATED universal health care and “individual mandates”.

To win the nomination, Romney displayed what conservative republicans now call his: pre-existing political calculation and turned his back on the ONLY, the SINGLE, the ONE star in his portfolio as governor of Massachusetts and decided that the Massachusetts “model” worked just for MA but would not work for the rest of America.

So he bought the Tea Party conservative’s vote by insisting that HE, Mitt Romney would REPEAL “Obamacare” on day one of getting into the White House.


More pre-existing political calculation?

Romney, having secured the Tea Party endorsement, of a tepid sort at the Republican National Convention, strayed off script this week and stated that HE will not repeal EVERY aspect of the federal health care act – Romney says he will actually KEEP some parts which are popular with Americans. Oh dear me…I can imagine the seismic gasp (sort of like Ann Romney’s collective sighs. See my August 31, post: Repackaging and Reselling Mitt Romney) that ran down the spines of hard-line Tea Party conservatives!

So where does that leave Mitt Romney today? Ask Republicans…

Their nominee’s pre-existing political calculation turned around and bit him in his (you know!). By distancing himself from health care reform in Massachusetts he has nothing left to run on since Healthcare Reform IS the SUM TOTAL of  HIS MASSACHUSETTS RECORD. On Foreign Policy he’s shown there’s nothing there to talk about! So Romney decided to run on Bain Capital instead, another piece of pre-existing political calculation that also turned around to bite him in the (you know!).

So now Republicans want their golden, nah, scrap that (pun intended) their brass boy to come up with specifics. I FOR ONE CAN’T WAIT! Because the grandiose house of cards that he’s building in the sky with Paul Ryan as Atlas is sure to come tumbling down with specifics. The numbers DON’T add up. Let’s see Romney juggle them!

Yeah, it’s written in stone!!! They love you, they really do, too!!!

Why? Because I can come to you and tell you: I am going to get my parents mansion and millions of dollars pretty soon and make myself very popular until you find out that I plan to kill my parents to get those riches!

So please Mr. Romney, show me how -22 and +2 = +$20. Yes, Mr. Romney, if I owe $22 and someone gives me $2 to pay on the bill, please tell America how I end up with $22! (Unless I rob or borrow $20 from somewhere…? Is that what you are planning to do, Mr. Romney?)

Like my bro former President Bill Clinton said: “It’s Arithmetic!”

The MATH DOES NOT ADD UP – and now even conservatives in Mr. Romney’s own party are beginning to see that: THE EMPEROR HAS NO CLOTHES!

Governor of Massachusetts Deval Patrick succeeded Mitt Romney in office in 2007.

Full Text of Speech by The Honorable Deval Patrick, Governor of Massachusetts to the Democratic National Convention: Tuesday, September 4, 2012

Good evening, Democrats! Are you fired up? Are you ready to go? I hope so.

This is the election of a lifetime. Because more than any one candidate or policy, what’s at stake is the American dream. That dream—the ability to imagine a better way for ourselves and our families and then reach for it—is central to who we are and what we stand for as a nation. Whether that dream endures for another generation depends on you and me. It depends on who leads us, too.

In Massachusetts, we know Mitt Romney. By the time he left office, Massachusetts was 47th in the nation in job creation—during better economic times—and household income in our state was declining. He cut education deeper than anywhere else in America. Roads and bridges were crumbling. Business taxes were up, and business confidence was down.

Our clean energy potential was stalled. And we had a structural budget deficit. Mitt Romney talks a lot about all the things he’s fixed. I can tell you that Massachusetts wasn’t one of them. He’s a fine fellow and a great salesman, but as governor he was more interested in having the job than doing it.

When I came to office, we set out on a different course: investing in ourselves and our future. And today Massachusetts leads the nation in economic competitiveness, student achievement, health care coverage, life sciences and biotech, energy efficiency and veterans’ services. Today, with the help of the Obama administration, we are rebuilding our roads and bridges and expanding broadband access.

Today we’re out of the deficit hole Mr. Romney left, and we’ve achieved the highest bond rating in our history. Today—with labor at the table—we’ve made the reforms in our pension and benefits systems, our schools, our transportation system and more that Mr. Romney only talked about. And today in Massachusetts, you can also marry whomever you love. We have much more still to do. But we are on a better track because we placed our faith not in trickle-down fantasies and divisive rhetoric but in our values and common sense.

The same choice faces the nation today. All that today’s Republicans are saying is that if we just shrink government, cut taxes, crush unions and wait, all will be well. Never mind that those are the very policies that got us into recession to begin with! Never mind that not one of the governors who preached that gospel in Tampa last week has the results to show for it. But we Democrats owe America more than a strong argument for what we are against. We need to be just as strong about what we are for.

The question is: What do we believe? We believe in an economy that grows opportunity out to the middle class and the marginalized, not just up to the well connected. We believe that freedom means keeping government out of our most private affairs, including out of a woman’s decision whether to keep an unwanted pregnancy and everybody’s decision about whom to marry.

We believe that we owe the next generation a better country than we found and that every American has a stake in that. We believe that in times like these we should turn to each other, not on each other. We believe that government has a role to play, not in solving every problem in everybody’s life but in helping people help themselves to the American dream. That’s what Democrats believe.

If we want to win elections in November and keep our country moving forward, if we want to earn the privilege to lead, it’s time for Democrats to stiffen our backbone and stand up for what we believe. Quit waiting for pundits or polls or super PACs to tell us who the next president or senator or congressman is going to be. We’re Americans.

We shape our own future. Let’s start by standing up for President Barack Obama.

  • This is the president who delivered the security of affordable health care to every single American after 90 years of trying. This is the president who brought Osama bin Laden to justice, who ended the war in Iraq and is ending the war in Afghanistan.
  • This is the president who ended “don’t ask, don’t tell” so that love of country, not love of another, determines fitness for military service. Who made equal pay for equal work the law of the land. This is the president who saved the American auto industry from extinction, the American financial industry from self-destruction, and the American economy from depression. Who added over 4.5 million private sector jobs in the last two-plus years, more jobs than George W. Bush added in eight.

The list of accomplishments is long, impressive and barely told—even more so when you consider that congressional Republicans have made obstruction itself the centerpiece of their governing strategy. With a record and a vision like that, I will not stand by and let him be bullied out of office—and neither should you, and neither should you and neither should you.

What’s at stake is real. The Orchard Gardens Elementary School in Boston was in trouble. Its record was poor, its spirit was broken, and its reputation was a wreck. No matter how bad things were in other urban schools in the city, people would say, “At least we’re not Orchard Gardens.”

Today, thanks to a host of new tools, many enacted with the help of the Obama administration, Orchard Gardens is turning itself around. Teaching standards and accountabilities are higher. The school day is longer and filled with experiential learning, art, exercise and music.

The head of pediatric psychology from a local hospital comes to consult with faculty and parents on the toughest personal situations in students’ home lives. Attendance is up, thanks to a mentoring initiative. In less than a year, Orchard Gardens went from one of the worst schools in the district to one of the best in the state. The whole school community is engaged and proud.

So am I. At the end of my visit a year and a half ago, the first grade—led by a veteran teacher—gathered to recite Dr. King’s “I have a dream” speech. When I started to applaud, the teacher said, “not yet.” Then she began to ask those six- and seven-year-olds questions: “What does ‘creed’ mean?” “What does ‘nullification’ mean?” “Where is Stone Mountain?” And as the hands shot up, I realized that she had taught the children not just to memorize that speech but to understand it.

Today’s Republicans and their nominee for president tell us that those first-graders are on their own—on their own to deal with their poverty; with ill-prepared young parents, maybe who speak English as a second language; with an underfunded school; with neighborhood crime and blight; with no access to nutritious food and no place for their mom to cash a paycheck; with a job market that needs skills they don’t have; with no way to pay for college.

But those Orchard Gardens kids should not be left on their own. Those children are America’s children, too, yours and mine. And among them are the future scientists, entrepreneurs, teachers, artists, engineers, laborers and civic leaders we desperately need. For this country to rise, they must rise—and they and their cause must have a champion in the White House.

That champion is Barack Obama. That cause is the American dream. Let’s fight for that. Let’s canvass and phone bank and get out the vote for that. Let’s go tell everyone we meet that, when the American dream is at stake, you want Barack Obama in charge.

Thank you. God bless you. And God bless the United States.

Economically depressed inner city Boston, MA school. Out of the 700 students, 15 are white, majority are Hispanic/Black with 6 Asian/Native American. 553 students are eligible for Free School Lunches, 47 for Reduced Price Lunches.

This Orchard Gardens K-8 Pilot school was SO bad that when it opened the school sent out a notice to parents in their zone, like ME, inviting me to send my son there and I said no thanks. Instead, I put my son in a Boston program  – METCO (that buses inner city kids to high performing suburban schools) and sent him to a town 14 miles away!

So when governor Patrick says the school was bad, IT WAS BAD. Orchard Gardens is a public housing development in Boston’s Roxbury neighborhood, in an area plagued by crime and drugs. IT IS REAL. It is not a promise in a campaign speech!!! When Romney and his running mate Mitt Ryan cut funding for the poor, this school will suffer either directly or INdirectly through welfare cuts.

I would prefer to see these kids parents’ continue to get benefits SO their kids remain in a stable enough home environment to allow them to EXCEL at school so THEY won’t be on welfare themselves…than cut welfare NOW and end up with the cycle of ANOTHER DEPENDENT GENERATION. Of course that’s the Republican way. Mishandle one problem, create two or more problems.

Pippa Middleton and The Dumbing Down of ABC

I woke up on Monday (04/16/12) to the BREAKING NEWS!!! on ABC about “compromising photos “ involving Pippa Middleton in Paris…

(Pippa Middleton is sister to Kate Middleton, who is now married to Britain’s Prince William. William is second in line to the British throne, after his father Prince Charles.)

The degree of urgency and breathlessness in the voice of George Stephanopoulos had me wondering: What the hell KIND of photos are we talking about…I’m thinking of some really scandalous scenario linked to Princess Diana or something equally shocking…while wondering about the national significance to the U.S.? Was she caught in bed with President Obama…or Mitt Romney?

So of course I’m curious…and by now ABC has made me equally breathless with anticipation — for like 5 seconds…until they show the photo.

Miss Middleton is in a car with some people, (Thank God. Could have been aliens – or Pigs in the car)  one of whom is brandishing a gun at paparazzi!!!   

Pippa in Paris! You need to KNOW this...

Really? Is that it?

Really ABC? THAT is THE photo that causes you to devote a large chunk of your precious morning time to this MAJOR breaking news item. DOES RUPERT MURDOCH SECRETLY OWN ABC?

I mean, come on…

If it had been Kate Middleton, the possible future queen. OK, maybe. I still don’t see the importance for us here in America? Unless she has secret designs to retake America as a colony? But OK – Pippa Middleton…?

So if it had been Angelina Jolie, would ABC have gone into cardiac arrest…

And if it had been Michelle Obama, would their circuits have blown out???

Who is the moron making these editorial decisions?

Pippa Middleton is in a car with some guy brandishing a gun…real or fake…I DON’T CARE. DON’T FREAKIN’ CARE…LET British tabloids handle it…let Special Edition or Inside Edition or whatever it’s called handle it. Please do not devote all this time on some British version of Kim Kardashian. Her only freaking claim to fame is because she is the sister of Kate Middleton, who married into royalty. What the hell has Pippa Middleton done? What does she even do?

Even Prince Harry is smart enough to know that he needs to carve his own space and make his OWN name for himself. He’s not lounging around being famous for being a prince – or for being the brother of the next possible king – or for being the grandson of the queen. HE is in the military. He is a helicopter pilot…Apache attack helicopters! HE was in Afghanistan and may return. HE is going on goodwill missions. HE is doing something newsworthy.

Get real, networks, and stop pushing nonsense on me IN THE NAME OF NEWS…

Hotel in Colombia where U.S. Secret Service allegedly entertained prostitutes...

I switched to CBS. That network was running a story about the Secret Service Sex Scandal at a hotel in Colombia, South America. Before President Obama arrived to attend a meeting with Latin American leaders…seems the Secret Service had some not so secret fun with prostitutes…

According to the information I got from CBS, seems that whole misbehaving thing may go back to former president George Bush (according to Republican Representative Darrell Issa/California) and I got to understand some the implications that such lapses can have:

  • The places the president occupies are always cleared/checked in advance
  • So, any people the Secret Service bring into this space (in this case, prostitutes) could come in carrying wires, bugs and other surveillance equipment that could record conversations, security details etc….
  • CONSIDER  the ramifications for National Security
  • CONSIDER  what a terrorist could DO with that information
  • CONSIDER if that prostitute was working for some hostile person or group
  • Blackmail implications?

While ABC was giddily providing it’s highbrow coverage of Pippa Middleton, CBS  stupid, DULL network that it is!!! ran another story focusing on the Rupert Murdoch News of the World Phone Hacking Scandal. CBS had an interview with a lawyer representing some of the hacking victims, including the family of the murdered teen whose cell phone was allegedly hacked by the News of the World.

Mark Lewis is in America this week of 4/16/2012 to talk with some U.S victims…with a view to filing legal action on their behalf. This could open a can of worms for Murdoch…

In 2008, Mark Lewis won a settlement from News Corp on behalf of what may well be the first client in the News of the World phone hacking scandal.  Lewis says News Corp went after him, placing Lewis and his family under surveillance, but apparently News Corp got MORE than it bargained for! Lewis fought back…and so, here we are today.

British lawyer, Mark Lewis;flexGridModule

Thank you, CBS. I mean he’s not Pippa Middleton, but he IS British. That’s close enough! His story has far-ranging consequences for America, but what does that matter, eh? When he gets into a car with three women — one of whom is brandishing a bra…that might be more newsworthy, yes ABC?!!!

  • I’ve noticed over the years that ABC is getting Dumber and Dumber.

Point 2

Take The View…a program I used to enjoy watching for its opinionated opinions and political clashes! Now,  more and more the time is being given over to promoting the network’s reality shows…with a reality show round-up! Say what? I don’t watch any of those dumb shows you’re talking about. Stop the madness. Tell me what you think of Pippa Middleton…!!!

Point 3

The other reason ABC sets my teeth on edge: NANCY GRACE.

My goodness! As soon as SHE comes on, I’m gone!!! The other analyst guy, Dan Abrams I can take…


She tries the cases from her armchair – and makes all kinds of assumptions that stick in people’s minds and remain lodged there as truth!

Take the Casey Anthony trial. GRACE determined Anthony was guilty and it’s no wonder that kind of rhetoric inflames people and makes them act in stupid, unacceptable ways.

(I’m not saying she is NOT guilty.) I’m saying, based on the evidence I heard coming from the courts, I’d have had a hard time convicting her myself.

  • The mother could have done it.

    Dan Abrams. Didn't realize how good looking HE is!

  • Casey’s father could have done it. Something off about that family.
  • Casey’s mother could have done it. I think SHE knows something…
  • They ALL could have done it together…
  • Some of them could have done it together…
  • Some/All covering up…?

Yet, Nancy Grace was SURE that Casey Anthony was guilty. Because She was there, because apparently Casey Anthony called Nancy Grace and explained to her what happened and asked for Grace’s help to dispose of the body! So the great pontificator KNOWS!!! Do I blame Nancy Grace or ABC?

The end result is that we have a woman who was cleared by the jury system but people are issuing death threats to her. Now whenever the courts don’t give US the verdict WE want, just riot! Go berserk. Why have a trial at all? Just bring the defendant to ABC and let Nancy Grace decide!!!

The jury did the right thing. There was not enough evidence to convict. The courts do not convict people because they are guilty. They convict based on PROOF of guilt…or innocence. That’s why many people get away with murder and other crimes… and while I don’t like that (unless of course I or somebody I love is the person walking away free) It is the best WAY, because otherwise, if the courts were NOT based on the ability to PROVE a case, we would ALL be bringing false claims against people we don’t like.

Innocent people do go to prison. Some of the “innocent” people in prison may not be innocent at all…while some murderers and other guilty parties in prison may not be “guilty” at all. Sometimes they ARE guilty and sometimes we only THINK they are guilty. Sometimes they are innocent and sometimes we only think they are innocent.

But be that as it may, life has a way of catching up with people. It is not for US to be the judge, jury AND executioner. Unless of course…you are Nancy Grace!

Point 4

When George Stephanopoulos took over on Good Morning America I said “yes” NOW we are going to get some real news…and it went well for a few weeks. But it wasn’t long before it went downhill. (IN MY OPINION…) And slipping fast…

So many things about ABC set my teeth on edge – even Diane Sawyer!

Goodbye ABC.

Don’t worry about me, though. Your dumbness is working. Apparently you’re doing better than CBS (I don’t  like Gayle King, either…) so dumb works. Just another blip in the dumbing of America…
