For a while tonight I couldn't see anyone's post count, high or low. It was wonderful.

I hoped it might be a new feature. or non-feature.

Comprehensive timeline of Romney's foreign policy


just a snippet:

The basis of Romney’s foreign policy critique of President Obama is that Obama went around the world and apologized for America after he became president. Of course, this never happened, but the baseless attack has been a hallmark from Romney’s campaign with respect to foreign policy. Indeed, Romney’s foray into foreign policy has been a bumpy road. Here’s a timeline from throughout the 2012 presidential campaign that lays it all out:

EARLY 2011

– Romney accused President Obama of “mission creep” and “mission muddle” in Libya. “Military action cannot be under-deliberated and ad hoc,” he said. Libyan rebels ousted then-Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi five months later. (In his book, Romney attacked Obama for appeasing Qaddafi.)

– Romney announces he is officially running for president and, in doing so, chides Obama for “leading from behind” in Libya. One wonders if Romney would criticize Nelson Mandela, who once said: “It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.”

– Romney says he will let the generals dictate his Afghanistan policy. “I want those troops to come home based upon not politics, not based upon economics, but instead based upon the conditions on the ground determined by the generals,” he said.

(much, much more at link)
(Please give a rec and kick as this is excellent background
info for tonight's debate. thanks!)

Can anyone verify the ultra-bizarre point when Mitt started asking Obama what was in his portfolio

and talking about investing in China,
and Obama wouldn't even look at him directly,
and he kept badgering wildly,
and Candy Crowly said I think we've gone a little off topic
we were talking about immigration....

did I dream that whole sequence?
if not was it as bizarre as I remember it?

The Car Crash Paul Ryan Should Have Avoided at the VP Debate


Biden had responded with grace so uncommon
it could only be innate, suggesting that his usual bombast
may be at least partly a cover for the hurt that he must
still keenly feel four decades later.

I ain't afraid


Holly Near: I ain't afraid

I ain't afraid of your Yahweh
I ain't afraid of your Allah
I ain't afraid of your Jesus
I'm afraid of what you do in the name of your god

I ain't afraid of your churches
I ain't afraid of your temples
I ain't afraid of your praying
I'm afraid of what you do in the name of your god

Rise up to your higher power
Free up from fear, it will devour you
Watch out for the ego of the hour
The ones who say they know it
Are the ones who will impose it on you


Rise up, and see a higher story
Free up from the gods of war and glory
Watch out for the threats of purgatory
The spirit of the wind wont make a killing off of sin and satan

I aint afraid of your Bible
I aint afraid of your Torah
I aint afraid of your Koran
Dont let the letter of the law
Obscure the spirit of your love it's killing us

I aint afraid of your money
I aint afraid of your borders
I aint afraid of your choices

I aint afraid of your Sunday
I aint afraid of your Sabbath
I aint afraid of your teachers

I aint afraid of your dances
I aint afraid of your music
I aint afraid of your children
I'm afraid of what you do in the name of your god

Was it actually an official "rule" that Biden would address Ryan as Mr. Ryan?

and not Congressman Ryan, or Paulie?
I never found out if that was a joke, or a real rule.

If not a joke: did Biden ever refer to him as Mr. Ryan?
It was always "the Congressman" or "my friend"
(as I recall.) That would be awfully funny, especially
since almost nobody would be noticing except Mr.Ryan.

generally you can avoid the depressing threads.. you can't eliminate them.

It's easy to get overwhelmed taking in too much information.
Up and down polls, trolls, and so on.

The source of hope and inspiration is inside of you.
If you can find it there, drink deeply, and share it..
that's how it works.

You can only drink from others' fountains in drips and drops.
There's a whole freshwater ocean inside of you.
