    I'm guessing you're one of the disappointed Cons who wanted one of the "other candidates". Sorry you didn't get your pick of the lot.


    My goal, now watch the Libbys come at me with long knives, is to see President Obama be a one term president.

    Furthermore, they all say "what (th)he needs to say to win". I don't know of any president or senator or representative that doesn't say what they think "we" want to hear.

There are tons of Americans out there, who think that the American Institution of Slavery, has no relevant impact on today's American society and its attached social traits. You are not alone in this delusion and this utter distortion of reality. But, I can promise you that it is real. I grew-up with it and the American Institution of Slavery, was very relevant in my family, as it is to this very day. The fact that I have to explain something like this to one who writes with the degree of fluency that you write with, is also not very surprising.
    The fact that you took this to mean that I do not understand the consequences of the slave trade, antebellum American slavery, and contemporary American society is incorrect. I understand quite well. I studied under prominent scholars in the field, including one of the few specialists on the American Colonization Society. I'm just not going far enough to throw out everything that the administration of Washington & Jefferson accomplished because of it. Unless your intention was to spite Josie for mentioning Washington, thinking that she thought there was nothing of question under him. If that was the case, job well done, yet, why?



    I can read between the lines, very well. Are you saying that you are Jewish, or Arab/Muslim?
    No. I'm not Jewish or an Arab.

    But, if those documents are anything like the documents that I have read on issues such as Northwoods, Project T/P Ajax and the like, then I fully understand the concerns you might have about such "leaders," especially when they are given such enormous power - such as that given to one who commands the United States Military.
    Why do I have the feeling I am going down an all too familiar path with you once you mentioned Northwoods and "Pearl Harbor" PNAC references?

    what Romney's wife does is her choice.

    however, their luxurious lifestyle just goes to show how far out of step they are with the rest of the American people, and how they have no right in any way to claim to have any connection with average Americans.

    The Romneys are like the Republicans of the 80s and 70s. Rich, clueless, and detached from normal society.

    Disrespecting and criticizing are different.

    they act just like any other people, they don't have live in help, and they aren't above taking their turns when it comes to cleaning the church building. Do they have it easier than the rest of us? yes, they do, but very few of them got there overnight, or without considerable effort.
    truth be known, there are a lot of rich people living among us in secret. Why secrecy? so they won't have to deal with their neighbors jealousy. I dealt with that when all we had was a bit more than our neighbors....there were some who called us lucky. I told them we paid for our luck, the hard way.

    Ever read the book, "the millionaire next door"?
    From what I have read on line, Ann Romney's parents had a nanny in the household, probably back when Ann first had problems with her MS....but I haven't read that Mitt and Ann have ever had live-in help of any kind.....
    If they did, it will come out, not that it is anybody's business but their own.
    If that's the case, Mac isn't going to vote for him

    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    I said if he wouldn't. Her not wanting help is a different matter.

    Way to make it about me though.

    I still haven't seen proof of a luxurious life style....
    but I do know people with 2 homes, a car kept at each home, and a third or 4th besides....oops, that's me.....to be honest, only one car is new, a year old. The rest are 10 yrs old or older.
    and we go on a cruise every year, those are surprisingly cheap...
    I also know many people who have and/or do all those things, on credit. We pay cash or we don't have it or do it...
    Our combined income never exceeded $130K, and that was only our last few years working.
    It is quite easy to live well in your "golden' years, as long as you haven't already gone into massive debt living well in your early years...
