More than just a gaffe, or, Mitt Romney was born a poor black child

So Romney is failing miserably at convincing voters that he has the economic credentials to 'fix' the economy, which is THE single issue he is resting his campaign on (at least part of his staff thinks so, the other half not so much

And according to his economic training at the School-For-Rich-People-Who-Need-To-Allay-Their-Guilt-For-Being-Rich, 47% percent of Americans are freeloading non-tax payers who depend on Obama to wipe their asses and feed them their food-stamped Mac 'n' Cheese, while the real Americans, like him pay lots and lots of taxes.

Which is funny because he doesn't pay income taxes, so he must not care about himself, or people like him who also don't pay income tax and benefit from Government largess, so what he really means is he does care about those of us who do pay taxes and struggle day to day, so in a brilliant campaign move he is reaching out to progressive voters and bucking his rich backers. He really cares! Vote Romney!

Or maybe he doesn't know what the fuck he's talking about

He is also failing to prove his foreign policy chops by yelling at the President for a statement never made about an attack that hadn't happened as of said statement. Because the best way to handle an extremely explosive situation is by defending and offensive film with worse production value than porn, in which the only way to convince people to participate is by lying to them and dubbing over their lines with vitriolic hate-mongering bullshit

If the half of his campaign that realizes his economic record is weak wins over the other half, then what they have left is foreign policy, which even prior to Romney's glowing review of "the Innocence of the Muslims" was confused and unapologetically misinformed.

So to conclude, we got this. Even conservative's attempt at suppressing the vote is struggling to survive

And when a 12 year old from Colorado knows that you don't have a chance, you know you're screwed

Unacceptable New Normal

While organizing on Temple's campus last semester, the FBI issued a blanket warning for a possible shooter somewhere in the Philadelphia area . The very next day, while driving to one of my Adjunct jobs,  this story  came on the radio, where an actual shooting occurred at the Community College of Philadelphia. As nothing happened the day before, my fears reemerged as I though the previous day's threat could still be in effect. After my initial shock and political indignation over America's irrational gun-boner, I attempted to rationalize away my fear with the fact that I work an hour outside of the city, and the likelihood of my small school in South Jersey falling under the warning was slim to none. But as I prepped for my students' arrival I found myself planning a defense from a shooter, fretting over the fact that my door doesn't lock, the largest barricade large enough is too far across the room, and the window openings may be too slim to escape throug

History Repeats, or, Voting Is Just Like Fishing

Today Democracy Now! interviewed Representative John Lewis, 13 term congressman from Georgia and Civil Rights icon . They read a quote from his book about the how each progressive movement grows from the previous movement that I want to share: "Just as Gandhi made it easier for King and King made it easier for Poland and Poland [made it easier] for Ireland [and] Ireland [made it easier] for Serbia [and] Serbia made it easier for the Arab Spring, [and] the Arab Spring made it easier for [the protests in] Wisconsin [and] Occupy." It contrasts what I've been thinking lately about the voter ID laws. The conservative movement also learns from the previous generation, and they also get better at what they do. During the Civil Rights movement people were shot for registering people to vote, and beaten and arrested when attempting to legally register. The new generation knows too well that this wouldn't fly (It's not "politi
