No global warming here…

A bald eagle and friends (including me) this morning – hanging out in a mud puddle once known as the Cedar River (yes, I used a zoom lens, but I did so looking north – standing on firmly dry ground in the middle of what is usually the river that flooded Cedar Rapids back in 2008), south of Tipton, Iowa.

Memo to All Productive Americans Whose Jobs Were Destroyed to Feather Mitt Romney’s Nest: You Were “Harvested”

What a sub-worthless scumbag vampire.

‘Stop it,’ Ann? 

It hasn’t even started yet.

There’s been a new video released on Mother Jones which shows Mitt Romney talking about Bain’s aims, ie, to harvest companies.

Bain Capital is an investment partnership which was formed to invest in start-up companies and ongoing companies [,] then to take an active hand in managing them and, hopefully, five to eight years later, to  harvest them at a significant profit….

Yes, where “managing” means saddling the company with hundreds of millions of dollars of debt which you use to pay yourselves bonuses while laying off and eliminating the pensions of people who actually do real work.

This is in line with what I’ve been saying about Mitt the Flip’s *actual* goal is if he somehow becomes president: to “harvest” America for plutocratic profit.

If Candy Crowley’s first question to Lord Etch of Sketch at the first debate doesn’t involve how he can justify this obscenity to all whose careers he destroyed, then she should be summarily yanked off the stage and replaced by Clint Eastwood’s chair.

For Those Who Don’t Like Sport, We Have…

Nikki Araguz seeing something that everyone in North America – except six of the seven officials on the field in Seattle – saw:

Political memo: If a crook like Pete Carroll can be the beneficiary of a call like that, then you have to know that an immoral, draft-dodging, economy-destroying traitor such as Mitt Romney is hoping that somehow he’ll be able to benefit from something equaly screwy to slither into the White House in November.

Now Accepting Donations to Buy the Romney Campaign a Custom-Made 747 With Roll-Down Windows

The truly pathetic thing about this isn’t simply that someone who is arrogant enough to believe he deserves to be president doesn’t understand why airplane windows don’t open…

During a Saturday fundraiser in Beverly Hills, Calif., which took in $6 million, Mitt Romney expressed his concerns over Ann Romney’s emergency landing on Friday. The candidate cast doubt on the mechanical design of airplane windows, in a general sense.

“When you have a fire in an aircraft, there’s no place to go, exactly, there’s no — and you can’t find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft, because the windows don’t open. I don’t know why they don’t do that. It’s a real problem. So it’s very dangerous….” he said.

The candidate’s complaint about sealed plane windows quickly went viral on social media. Some are making fun of Romney for not knowing about the risks involved with an open window, while others think it might be just a joke.

The Romney campaign did not immediately respond to a request to comment.

Rather, its the fact that I found the above L.A. Times item via a Google search on ‘Romney windows’ and it was the second hit.

Mitt, find yourself another country to be part of…

you know, like you’ve already done for  your money.


I’m just observin’….

Anyone With Even One Functioning Brain Cell Should Presume That He Has Already Filled Out the Forms to Do Exactly That

Seen recently on Facebook re: Juan Percent’s and Marie AnnToinette’s Friday afternoon document dump:

Of course if Mitt loses the election or even if he doesn’t he can file an amended return and ask for the money back which he did not currently claim as charitable deductions on his 2011 return. Yes. He can simply ask for it back and it can be returned to him and no one in the public would ever be the wiser. What do you think of that?

A Boehner in the Mitt is Worth Two Panders in the Snooki, La Segunda Parte

I’ll let this speak for itself:
