Mitt Romney the Plastic Puppet

Have you  noticed how people watching a tennis match, head constantly turns left to right and right to left following the tennis ball as it goes back and forth between the players?  Well, that's how I feel whenever I hear Mitt Romney tell Americans where he stands on issues.  Because the problem is he changes where he stands on issues like the weather and lies. 
Romney has a habit of being indecisive when it comes to where he stands.  And there is a little war button in the Oval Office that I don't think I'd want to trust him with because he is too fickle. In addition, he's just a little too anxious to go to war with certain foreign countries and views war as an opportunity.  Well, war is not an opportunity.  It is filled with blood shed and is unfortunate because young people lose their lives, limbs, and minds!
For Romney to have been a successful business man, he sure does have a  problem with basic Arithmetic.  Because last time I did a math problem, if you subtract 47 from 100, it leaves 53, NOT 100.  I understand that the methods in doing math have changed somewhat, but the answers to the problems haven't.  The answers still remain the same.  Maybe, Mitt means that the Republican Party intends to scrub 47% from the voter registration list.  Sorta has me wondering if he was one of those students that paid someone to do his schoolwork.  How can we trust him?  We know without a doubt that he has a habit of stretching the truth a mile long. 
Don't be fooled by his sudden revised 47% story to 100%.  Romney wants to bring in a serfdom system!  He wants to model Americas' labor force after China. With Romney it's about spreadsheets and accountant ledgers and the profits.  He does not care about all Americans having affordable health care, or food on the table, or shelter.  Romney is strictly about profits and profits only.  He cannot relate to an average ordinary citizen because he has been catered to and waited on all his life.  I doubt if he wipes his own ass. 

I don't care how  Republicans try to rig the vote with voter suppression. President Barack Obama will be re-elected!  There are still many seniors,  in the black community that were delivered by midwifes, especially in rural areas due to poverty and Jim Crow.  For most of them, the census, bible, and church records serve as their birth certificate.  Before the Civil Rights Movement, hospitals did not exactly have an open arms policy towards minorities in the south or north and denied blacks admission.  Many blacks used home remedies for whatever ailed them.
It is important that we help get those people registered to vote.  What you can do to help:
Provide transportation to those who have none.
Get the word out that it is important that they vote because much is at stake.
Make sure you vote.

Hide Without Seek!

I sure hope when the Presidential debates take place that one of the commentators will ask Romney why he erased computer hard drives that were the State government property when he left the governor's office in Mass. And $97,000 sure was an awful lot of money to spend on making sure they were wiped clean. What did he have on them that he didn't want anyone to see?

The computers sold to his staff  ONLY raised my eyebrow a little bit too. Let's see he doesn't want to show his tax returns, erased computer hard drives that were the State's government property when he left the governor's office in Mass, and appears to be a habitual liar. Sneaky+liar+destroying evidence + something to hide = crooked as the crooked road in San Francisco. Smh! know his wife mentioned he cooked a Thanksgiving Dinner in her speech. Well, I call that a fowl cooked by a foul because it's some foul incidents that make Romney seem a little bit on the shady side. I wonder did he wash the foul. He likes to play hide and seek, but without the seek part a little bit too much for granny's taste.

Y'all know my spiritual eye is telling me that something, something ain't right like Keith Sweat use to say. I'm just saying! Those speeches he and his wife gave, well, they were just a little too plastic for me. For a minute, I started shivering like I was sitting down at the North Pole instead of in my bed trying to listen to their speech. His and her speech lacked warmth and seemed well...phoney.

Zimmerman's attorney is subpoenaing Trayvon's school records on their quest to make Martin out of a thug.  Nothing new there.  It is just as much as part of America's history as apple pie and war.  The only thing that has changed is the label rapist to thug.  Whenever murder involves a black victim, stereotype labels are thrown in to justify murder.  Murder of black folks is justifiable, but murder of any of group of people is not.

Tricks Are For Kids

I haven't blogged in a few months for various reasons.  However, today I felt like exercising my rights to freedom of speech.  Does anyone remember back in 2011 of May when I wrote this  topic?    I was reminded of it when Clint Eastwood spoke at the RNC and illustrated my point regarding the President being invisible to them when he spoke to an invisible President in an empty chair.

Did Clint call the President Mr.?  I guess calling him Mr. Obama instead of boy is what the Republicans consider progress. Those on the right have a very bad habit of addressing him as Obama and Mr.  Nevertheless, it is so disrespectful that those folks on the right insist on not addressing him as President Obama or Mr. President as they did all of the Presidents before him who were white.  After all, he does hold the highest office in America and whether they like it or not he is America's Commander in Chief and President.

For the last few months, I've been keeping up with the Trayvon Martin case.  His case is just as important right now as the coming elections.  The reason being that if Zimmerman gets away with his cold blooded act of murder, it sets the stage for copycats to surely follow and innocent young black males to be labeled thug as an excuse to kill them at random and get away with it.  All black males are not thugs.  Neither was Trayvon! 

Nevertheless, check out the video above that is a reenactment with a written argument following each scene which; challenges everything Zimmerman claims and then check out this one too. 

BTW, First Lady Michelle Obama gave an excellent speech last night.  And Lily Ledbetter gave a heartfelt speech that was moving as well.  All of the speeches given last night were great!  One thing Mitt Romney did right was picking his VP.  Yep, they're a perfect match because both of them are skilled in lying and revisionist.

Anyway, stay tuned, I'm not promising topics on a regular basis because I've been babysitting my two year old great-granddaughter who is full of energy and wears me out by the end of the day.  Yet, she is a bundle of joy and I enjoy watching her grow.
