Mitt Romney and the GOP claim that they want a better America. Okie dokie, but for whom do they want this better America is the question. Without a doubt, the poor, disabled, women and grandma and grandpa are not included in their equation.

Sean Hannity said to let the poor eat beans and rice. Well, we expect a  scumbag ex-bartender, school dropout to say something like that. Hannity is out of touch with humanity. Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes made him a millionaire for his lying abilities and it has went to his head. Murdoch and Ailes will make a millionaire out of anyone with lying capabilities and Hannity is a born liar.

Getting back to Romney, he is quite a unreliable and fickle character. Yep, he changes like the wind. Not only that he does not mind stepping on poor people to make a profit.

In 1989, Romney led Bain Capital's purchase of Damon Corp., a medical testing company, and took a seat on the Board of Directors to better manage it. During Romney's four years, Bain tripled its investment, and Romney personally made $473,000 -- while Damon plumped its profits with Medicare fraud (running thousands of medical tests doctors didn't want, and billing Medicare for them). ~~Skeletoncloset~~


While I'm at it, I thought I'd mention a little something about our little nasty, vile, racist, pesty trolls. Here is a video regarding trolls who get their jollies preying on Internet blogs. Not only do they prey on black blogs they do it with all types of blogs. Well...BBC tracked down a troll. This video will give you an idea of what type of people they are.
Internet "trolls" are generally anonymous provocateurs who invade forums and comment sections for the primary purpose of disrupting discourse. Some "trolls" wish to defame people and destroy reputations, some wish to discredit certain ideas and concepts, and others simply want to make spectacles of themselves through brute heckling.

Trolls spout out vicious, unsupported, and outright fabricated accusations permeate comment sections, as do vulgar abuse and name-calling, and sometimes physical threats.

The definition of astroturfing from Wikipedia reads: "The goal of such a campaign is to disguise the efforts of a political or commercial entity as an independent public reaction to some political entity-a politician, political group, product, service or event. Astroturfers attempt to orchestrate the actions of apparently diverse and geographically distributed individuals, by both overt ("outreach", "awareness", etc.) and covert (disinformation) means. Astroturfing may be undertaken by an individual pushing a personal agenda or highly organized professional groups with financial backing from large corporations, non-profits, or activist organizations. Very often the efforts are conducted by political consultants who also specialize in opposition research." ~~Wikipedia~~

Trolls like you mention above are why I moderate the comments on my blog. I refuse to pass on their vicious and hateful lies.

P.S. It's good to have you posting again. You were missed.

Thanks Ted. I'm thinking about doing the same with mine, put moderation on and keep it on.

Oh Granny, please don't do that. I have no place else to go.

"Trolls" are people too. Are you racist against trolls?

It almost doesn't matter WHO sits in the White House nowadays. Conservatives don't care and Liberals are too timid and afraid of being called "socialist." And moderates (like Obama) have to avoid P.O. everybody and end up looking ineffectual

Granny, you are in danger of sliding from irrelevance into ignominy. Don't wind up like Ted, keep this site open to the vibrant interplay of ideas.

Granny, will you be going to the "Blogging while Brown" conference in Philly in June?

Grandpa Woodley said...

Money IS just for rich people Granny. If poor people had money, then they wouldn't be poor.

Come on girl, pick your game up.
