“So apparently my post last night about Obama got onto Twitter and Fox 40 came and interviewed me cause apparently a lot of people in Sacramento think I’m crazy and racist. WOW is all I got to say!! I’m not racist and I’m not crazy. just simply stating my opinion.!!!“I didn’t think it would be that big of a deal,” she said. “The assassination part is kind of harsh. I’m not saying like I would go do that or anything like that, by any means, but if it was to happen, I don’t think I’d care one bit.”
right here is what “not racist” white people frequently say after calling a black man, even the President of the United States, a n*gger. And please note that she is in her early twenties and a woman. Extreme racism and hatred is not the sole province of old white men.

Obama, Lord, Tony Soprano, please end her.
You cannot call someone the N-word and then say you’re not racist. Shut the fuck up lady.
A coal company headed by a prominent Mitt Romney donor has laid off more than 160 workers in response to President Obama’s election victory. Murray Energy said Friday that it had been “forced” to make the layoffs in response to the bleak prospects for the coal industry during Obama’s second term.
In a prayer circulated by the company, CEO Robert Murray said Americans had voted “in favor of redistribution, national weakness and reduced standard of living and lower and lower levels of personal freedom.” “The American people have made their choice. They have decided that America must change its course, away from the principals [sic] of our Founders,” Murray said in the prayer, which was delivered in a meeting with staff members earlier this week.
“Lord, please forgive me and anyone with me in Murray Energy Corporation for the decisions that we are now forced to make to preserve the very existence of any of the enterprises that you have helped us build.”
Wanna guess which company it is? Yeah, that one:
Footage from the rally was used in a Romney ad. Workers in the spot later complained to a local radio host that they were forced to attend the rally and weren’t paid for the time.
There IS no forgiveness for petty sons of bitches like yourself, putting people out of work for nothing more than spite.
I lost my shit at “In a prayer circulated by the company”. A phrase like that should never have to be uttered.
Also: Zane Tankel, the douchenozzle CEO of Applebee’s, has said similar things, although in response to Obamacare, specifically. They join upstanding paragon of American individualism “Papa” John Schnatter in this shit. I say good riddance. Go Galt, then get the fuck out. Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way.
It’s impossible for me to identify with anyone who is undecided in the middle of October, who went into the debate without a clear idea of his/her preferred candidate, or who watched last night’s debate and still came away undecided. But that’s precisely what happened; as Nate Silver points out:
A CBS News/Knowledge networks poll of undecided voters who watched the debate found 37 percent giving an advantage to Mr. Obama, 30 percent favoring Mitt Romney and 33 percent calling the debate a tie.
When I watched the debate, I came away with the distinct impression that Mitt Romney has one platform plank: President Obama didn’t do enough to fix America’s economic woes. His solution, however, is utterly nonsensical. It involves lowering tax rates, extending the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, more military spending, no additional taxes on the middle class … and somehow a balanced budget. Whenever Romney is pressed on this issue and told that the math won’t work, he simply replies that it will work. This is like listening to someone who believes in unicorns or a literal interpretation of the Book of Genesis.
That said, if you are someone who agrees with Romney’s simple assertion, then you have made up your mind. If you’re someone who agrees with Obama that Romney’s plan is just a series of impossible platitudes and that economic recovery isn’t something that just magically happens when a president waves a magic wand, then you have made up your mind. If you’d like to hear more from Romney about how his plan will work, however, you should know that you’ll be waiting forever.
Economic recovery is a slow and painful process, especially in a democratic system characterized by checks and balances and two belligerent political parties who are actively trying to make it more difficult for one or the other to get anything done; if you want it to go faster, perhaps what you want is an authoritarian governmental system.
Now, if the economy isn’t the only issue on your mind this Fall, then the choice seems just as stark.
On the question of entitlements, you either believe Romney when he says that his 47% remark doesn’t represent what he really thinks or you believe Romney when he says that 47% of the country won’t ever vote for him because they’re lazy “takers.” On the question of guns, you either agree with Romney when he says that single-parent families are largely responsible for gun violence or you believe that we might have a broader problem with guns in our society that requires a reexamination of the notion that easy access to guns makes us free and safe. On the question of women’s rights, you either agree with Obama when he says that women ought to have more control over their health and reproductive choices than the government or you agree with Romney when he says that restricting women’s choices is one of the only things the government ought to do. And then there’s the nonsense about helping women in the workplace that Romney trotted out last night in order to demonstrate … that it takes a good man to search and search and search until he finds some women to hire (who will then need to be allowed to leave work early so they can cook dinner for their families).
Anyhow, this list goes on and on and on. I won’t even mention trade with China and war with Iran.
On these issues, the differences between these candidates couldn’t be more stark. It is almost certainly the case that being undecided at this point actually means that you haven’t thought out how you feel about these issues. So, instead of worrying about who looked more presidential, whose interruptions were more impolite, or whose disagreements with the moderator about time-keeping were more annoying, perhaps you can spend some time thinking about your beliefs on equal pay, the idea that some people are “makers” and others are “takers,” women’s reproductive health, a possible war with Iran, vouchers for services upon which seniors depend, and magical tax cuts that solve all of our economic troubles.
Doing that will probably help you if you’re undecided.
