like he'd been scalded. Never to be seen by the rmoney clan again.

I just came in to eat some brunch. I'm putting a new roof on our house so I don't have time to get a link for you. It was widely discussed earlier this year here on the DU so it shouldn't be hard to find. Sorry

I had heard about Seamus's ride but never knew he vanished after. Makes perfect sense though.

Be safe up there.

44. That's the story, anyway. I think Willard found Seamus dead when he opened the crate & concocted

the runaway story for the sake of the kids.

Not that he really cared I'm sure but didn't want to hear all that crying ...

My dog would never run away from me. She might try to get me to chance her, but she never lets me get out of her sight. Dogs are incredibly loyal if you treat them well.

15. We're getting militant in The Furniture City, lol. My Cat Division, Dogs Against

Romney bumpersticker gets rave reviews. I've had at least a dozen complete strangers come up to me asking where they could get one too. I get a thumb's up almost every time I drive and not one person has flipped me off. Will Kent County go blue again? If yard signage and bumperstickers are any indication, it's looking good. Very much like 2008.

33. Romney is a sociopath. Have you ever heard him say these words:

"I am sorry"

I have not. I haven't even heard the man ever admit he was wrong about anything.

And in the case of Seamus, he's a dog, for Pete's sake.

Just like the 47%.

Just like the Sensata workers.

This guy is not right mentally. It would be a huge mistake to put him in charge of anything.

49. Exactly. It is the mind of a sociopath.

Thee are times in life where an apology is the only right answer. People who cannot do that are missing an important piece of humanity. Apologies don't come easily for most of us -- BECAUSE they are so meaningful and so close to our "soul" if you will.

This guy thinks you can always hire somebody to do an apology, if that is the expedient means to your end.

even though it is a stuffed animal, which reduces the emotional impact, seeing it is different than reading about it. Far more powerful.

39. Don't worry you will

know Romney/Ryan supporters. Those that will vote for the President won't be talking. They don't want the family arguing. But the ones who are staunch supporters will bellow it from the top of the roof. My little trick when I am with Republicans and they get to bellowing some obnoxious talking point and they try and drag me in, I always have questions they can't answer and I can. Facts do Matter!!! Especially when there is laptop and a kid???Its a beautiful thing when a child gets the opportunity to tell an adult they are mistaken. Its even better when they look like an ass in front of everyone. You will have people at the end of the night asking how do you know those things,where do you get you information from.They will ask you to recommend sites. One reason you must be careful about what sight you send republicans. Du is a good site for Democratic Members who have started eating meat. Not Babies still on Republican Formula. Try to use entities that are non-partisan.Congressional Budget Office,Center for Tax Policy, those type of things.And you can always say this is non-partisan or bi- partisan.

51. Most of my family members support Obama

My brother-in-law leans a little to the right compared to the rest of us, but if my sister can't change his mind, no one can. At least she has him to the point where he won't vote Republican OR Democratic. Better than a vote for Romney.

45. yeah I do the same thing - just give em a fact

like - well, I don't like the supply side stuff, it'll tank us again, eh?

Supply side get em every time - they just go duh.....

Or - well, just how much farther do you want to push the oligarchic thing? Got em again.

If 4% have 90% of the wealth, do you want it to go to 2% on 95%, or 1% on 99%, or maybe .1% on 99.9%, or just WHAT?

What's the end game, where ya goin? We came from there, remember? The kingdom thing?

They really don't deal with reality well at all, they're pretty emotional thinkers.

I work with repubs, they pretty much leave me alone.
