Romney Flips: It  is  a Tax
Poor bastard is stuck - what else can he do?


Romney steered his campaign message back in line with other top Republicans on Wednesday,
insisting that the individual mandate that requires most Americans to buy health insurance was "a tax."

< style="color: rgb(0, 0, 153);">"The majority of the court said it is a tax, and therefore it is a tax," Romney said.
"They have spoken. There's no way around that. You can try and say you wish hey had decided a different way, but they didn't."

Romney's comments came days after senior adviser Eric Fehrnstrom rejected the notion that
the individual mandate imposed a "tax," saying instead that it was a "penalty."

"The governor believes that what we put in place in Massachusetts was a penalty, and he disagrees
with the court's ruling that the mandate was a tax," Fehrnstrom said on MSNBC's.

Romney insists that when a white guy does it, it's a "penalty,"
but it's a "Tax" when a Black guy does it.

Will the Repuiblicans buy that?
You bet your ass they will.

Searing Heatwave to Continue
Is this the last cool summer for America?


The heat wave cooking most of the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic will keep raging today
as cities in at least 13 states endure triple-digit heat.

Jon Rowe, senior meteorologist at The Weather Channel, says more than 174 US cities set
record high temperatures Tuesday and a final tally of Wednesday's records likely will agree.
He said that pattern should continue today and through the weekend before finally easing
some by Sunday — but not by much.

"It's still going to be horrific," he says, "but a little more average."


It's going to keep getting hotter and hotter.

This may be the last "cool" summer have until 2060 when the measures taken in 2020
finally start to lower the global temperatures down from their 40-year highs.

"The thermometers are lying!
"The raging wildfires are lying, too!
"The glaciers are merely hiding from us and that
  you-know-what in the White House is a big, fat liar."

Rumor: Obama Gets Real in Term 2?


Rumor: IF Obama wins a second term, he plans to tackle another American war: The Drug War.

Don't expect miracles. There is very little the president can do by himself. And pot-smokers
shouldn't expect the president to come out in favor of legalizing marijuana. But Obama has considered
the Drug War to be a failure, a conflict that has exacerbated the problem of drug abuse, devastated entire
communities, changed policing practices for the worse, and has led to a generation of young children,
disproportionately black and minority, to grow up in dislocated homes, or in none at all.

So why did Obama ratchet up the War on Pot for no reason?

Bush wasn't raiding pot dispensaries, Bush turned his head and let the states handle it.
Obama decided he knew a better way and ordered those costly and senseless raids.

I don't think big mistakes, followed by possible sane moves later, is good government.

Why not do the right thing up-front in the first damn place?

BTW, that sentence in bold?  Pure horseshit.

Obama could do what most Police Chiefs have done: Issue a memo reminding everyone
that pot is still, technically illegal, but it is of less priority that murders, rapes, assaults,
car thefts, drunk driving and pretty much every other "crime" on the books.

"God Particle" Found
But nobody knows what that means


Physicists say they have all but proven that the "God particle" exists. They have a footprint
and a shadow, and the only thing left is to see for themselves the elusive subatomic particle
believed to give all matter in the universe size and shape.

Scientists at the world's biggest atom smasher plan to announce Wednesday that they have
nearly confirmed the primary plank of a theory that could restructure the understanding of
why matter has mass, which combines with gravity to give an object weight.

The idea is much like gravity and Isaac Newton's discovery: It was there all the time before
Newton explained it. But now scientists know what it is and can put that knowledge to further use.

The focus of the excitement is the Higgs boson, a subatomic particle long sought by physicists.

Researchers at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN, say that they have
compiled vast amounts of data that show the footprint and shadow of the particle, even though it
has never actually been glimpsed.

I've paid attention thru several explantions of this great discovery and I still have no clue.

One guy said they think they've found evidence that suggests the Higg boson id the glue
that holds the universe together - but they didn't find any damn glue.

They found numbers on some paper - how does that equal glue?

Why salivate over an announcement that the scientists can't even explain?

Obama: "Stakes are High"


Defending his economic policies, Obama said Thursday he was betting that Americans wouldn't
lose interest or heart in the upcoming election despite a political stalemate in Congress. He said the
next election would set the country's economic outlook for the next decade and beyond.

"There are some folks who are betting that you will lose interest, that are betting that somehow
you are going to lose heart. But here you are in the heat," Obama said, on a steamy, sunny day.

"I'm betting you're not going to lose interest. I'm betting you're not going to lose heart.
I still believe on you, I'm betting on you. And the country is betting on you Ohio."

For a man who sees poker as the ultimate crime, he's sure doing a lot of betting.

Tour de France Stage Win
Is everyone as excited as I am?


André Greipel won Stage Four while an unprotected Mark Cavendish survived a crashing fall.

Why does it matter who wins the 2012 Tour de France?

In 2025, they're going to claim he was on steroids and vacate the victory.

So why does it matter who wins?

PS: my Spell check, either Google or Windows, always, for the

Now that’s what I call PROPAGANDA, or maybe NEWSPEAK

I don't trust Roberts, either.

If Roberts killed O-care, it would've rallied the Dems for November.
As is, he's rallied the GOP against Obama.

Will struggling people vote to give the super-rich MORE?
I say no.

The Difference between Them and Us

Did you see last issue's Beautiful Nature Photo?

Not sure where that is - maybe Hawaii, but if I had Romney's millions, if *I* made $20M a year,
first I'd give half to some charity because you can live really well on, say, just $200M.

Then I would take you, the reader, on a trip to Hawaii because I have f-ing $200M in the bank and I could
never spend that much money so we would grab a barrel of Chinaco and fly the gang to Hawaii and try some
Maui Wowie and party and enjoy life and look for ways to help those with less get a bigger piece.

Romney HAS this kind of money - and what did he do?

He teamed up with other rich assholes who never worked a day in their lives and hired some slick tax lawyers
to figure out how they could take over a company, borrow against it, use some tax loopholes to drain more cash
from it and then throw the carcass on the trash heap when they're done and screw whoever gets hurt.

You see?

the difference between them and us.

Rich assholes like Romney bribed congress to write the laws to where the super-rich can park their
mega-millions off-shore in the Cayman Islands so they don't have to pay their taxes while the
middle class is slowly suffocating into non-existence.

That's the difference between them and us.
