Happy Serfs' Day

It's not really fitting to call it Labor Day anymore, since this country is all about the billionaires and only the billionaires. I'm going out of town on business, no rest for the wicked. Posting will be limited if any at all until Tuesday. Just watch the Republicans and think the opposite, that's pretty much all you need to know. If you're a billionaire, please be kind to your serfs on their holiday.

Hard-line Mittens

Headline in the NY Times, "Romney Adopts Harder Message for Last Stretch", "...his advisers convinced he needs a more combative footing against President Obama in order to appeal to white, working-class voters and to persuade them that he is the best answer to their economic frustrations." The claim that his reference to Obama's birth certificate not being an intentional jab goes right out the window (as if anybody ever really believed him).

How far is he going to take this nonsense? How about the birth-er claim that if your father wasn't born here that you aren't really a "natural born" citizen of the US? That's a good one, George Romney's birth certificate said he was born in Mexico. Maybe he can claim that Mormon polygamy colonies are really part of the United States like the Panama Canal Zone where John McCain was born.

Have you ever seen the bumper sticker, "Ask me about my grandchildren"? Maybe Paul Ryan should be asking about Willard's three sons that had their kids by in vitro fertilization. There's some "snowflake" babies out there somewhere, or did Romney's Stericycle company already dispose of the leftovers?
