  • Are you a bigot for not liking homosexuality?

The administration apparently believes that the carnage is too raw, and that focus should be on the victims. So I have to ask: when *is* the right time for this debate. Because if we are going to wait for a time when families aren't grieving after a murderer used his/her gun for its intended purpose then we will be waiting forever. These tragedies seem to happen every week, yet it's never the "right time." We need to have that "conversation." As a country, we need to decide, whether this is the price we are willing to pay for the unrestricted distribution of firearms. This is a conversation that is long overdue. Guns don't kill people, people do. But they do it faster, easier, and on a far grander scale with guns. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/12/14...

Rick Scott is clearly incompetent, and that's assuming he isn't purposefully trying to suppress votes, but he hasn't been Governor forever. He had to take a break to kill Harry Potter's parents. Thank the maker President Obama's victory over Mitt Romney was so decisive that FL ended up an afterthought. But shouldn't we do something now to make sure this doesn't happen again in four years time?

    Or, "could" cut, we should say because Mitt will never be President. But, as it's Halloween, I thought we'd all get a kick out of imagining the horror of America's Nightmare that would be a Romney Presidency. The latest Primary Promise coming back to bite Romney is that he would "return" FEMA to the states. How would that work? No one knows because Romney wont tell us, he wont even tell us if he still supports it or if that was a couple of shakes of the ol' Etch-a-Sketch ago. He was asked some 13 times at his "Hurricane Relief/Victory Rally"* but refused to answer. Is this the Profile in Courage we can except from President Romney? Thank the Gods we will never know as this was all a Halloween American Nightmare. *In which supporters were given items purchased by the campaign to give to Romney so they'd get some good video. These items were then loaded onto a truck which will presumably make its way to NJ someday. It should be pointed out that, while arguably well intentioned by some people involved, this is horribly inefficient and it is better to donate money directly to relief charities instead of forcing them to deal with the random supplies. These organizations know best what, when, and how to get supplies to people in need. More proof of Romney's incompetency in the face of adversity.

    At the last debate Romney proudly declared that he affirmatively acted to hire female candidates over qualified male ones to his administration. He said he had whole binders full of women to promote over male candidates, not because they were more qualified, but because they were women. According to him, he even had to make special considerations like allowing the women to leave early because they have to go home to perform womanly duties like cooking dinner. So does Romney realize he was practicing Affirmative Action? or is it OK because he gave the jobs to women and not specifically "Blah" people.

This is just like Paul Ryan's initial run for congress when he dragged his sister and her infant child from event to event in the hot sun without a hat for the wee one so that voters would think he was married. Ryan will stop at nothing to lie about his plans to kill Medicare and doom America's seniors (past and present) to healthcare rationing by wealth. Does anyone have another reason why he would subject this woman to a loud raucous filthy Republican campaign even in the heat of a Florida summer?

    After a disastrous 2004 election where long lines led to 174,000 Ohio voters leaving their polling place without voting (Bush won the state by 118,000 votes), Ohio instituted common sense early voting laws. Now, Ohio republicans seem intent on a repeat of 2004 and are doing everything they can to curtail access to anyone who even looks like they might vote Democratic. They tried to cut early voting down from 35 days to 11, with no early voting on Sundays when the state's black population tends to vote. They took away the ability of veterans, women, doctors, 9/11 first responders who moved to Ohio, Nuns, priests, the elderly, disabled to vote the three days before an election; this is the time when a majority of 2008 early Ohio voters exercised their constitutional right. Worst of all, Republicans are going county by county and limiting voting hours in Dem leaning counties while expanding them in Rep leaning counties. This is a travesty and anyone; Republican, Democrat, or "Independent;" should be outraged by what the Republican party is doing.
