Questions you would like Jim Lehrer to ask in the debate tonight?

Please list 1 or 2 or 3 questions you think are fair questions to ask of both candidates that you think Jim should ask tonight.

Report back after the debate if your question was similar to one or two Jim asked.

I'll check back in an hour to see what you have in mind.

Where is the thread going to be for the debate tonight?

Anyone know where the debate thread would be located tonight at 9 Eastern or even earlier?

Will there be only one? Maybe one to comment on Romney's, one to comment on Obama's performance?

Anyone have any info on that, or are there no plans, and we will just have to see when it happens?

Fox News Lies About Libya Attack Response?

Video Producer's comments:

Fox News used dishonest reporting and video editing to misrepresent President Obama's reaction to the tragic September 11, 2012, attack against the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that killed Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and 3 other Americans, as I show in this video.

The clip I use of Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer and House Republican Deputy Whip Marsha Blackburn comes from a longer segment of Fox News' October 1, 2012 broadcast of "America's Newsroom" available online at http://bit.ly/Vqf3Rn

The clip I use of Fox News reporter Wendell Goler and Obama advisor David Axelrod also comes comes from a longer segment of Fox News' October 1, 2012 broadcast of "America's Newsroom" (which I have not found available online)

The clip I use of President Barack Obama's September 12, 2012, speech at the Cashman Center in Las Vegas, NV, comes from a longer video upload by KTNV on YouTube at http://bit.ly/Wbv4d6

Courts Block GOP Voter Suppression Laws

Courts Block GOP Voter Suppression Laws

Great article with maps, etc. from Ari Berman, expert in voter suppression.

http://www.thenation.com/blog/170287/courts-block-gop-voter-suppression-laws#


By my count, Pennsylvania is one of eleven voter suppression laws passed by Republicans since the 2010 election that have been invalidated by state or federal courts in the past year, including in crucial swing states like Florida, Ohio and Wisconsin.

Colbert I. King: "Racism could sway the election"

Credit R. Wallace “Wally” Hudson, chairman of the Mecklenburg County (Va.) Republican Committee, with demonstrating how new social media platforms can broadcast ancient hates. The Post reported this week that the countyGOP’s Facebook page had displayed for months photos portraying President Obama as a witch doctor, a caveman and a drug dealer.


....

Baylor University assistant professor Mia Moody did a study of social media stereotyping of Barack and Michelle Obama; her findings appeared in the journal New Media & Culture.


...

Moody observed that, while the group professed to dislike Obama not because of his race, most comments on the page attacked the president “personally with racial slurs.” Just one example: “Obama needs to step down and go back to Africa with the rest of the coons!! He’s nothing but a jigaboo and spear chucker!!”

Has anyone spoken in the UN with a bomb diagram?

Just asking. Don't you think this guy is a bit of an exhibitionist fear-monger?

I think I am watching a moment we will all remember, when Prime Minister Netanyahu held up a diagram of a bomb and asked for the world to stop Iran from all research and weapons development forever.

The ONLY logical way to stop a nation from all research and weapons development forever is to obliterate that nation.

Does America share that goal?

DPR Jones, some self revelations from an admirable atheist.

If God Weren't Invisible

If God Weren't Invisible

"Every breath you take...every move you make...every bond you break...every step you take...I'll be watching you." ~ God (and Sting)

A great point made in a conversation I had with LiveLife8072 and NegationofP is that believers don't act like God is there, watching them. They act appropriately when someone real walks in and catches them in a compromising situation, like masturbating or something, but God was already supposed to be there. Perhaps this is a sign that, deep down, they don't truly believe.





I think this would be offensive to many, so I posted it here. I doubt it will offend anyone here.

Lyrics:
You're insecure
Some Say a Bore
Morally bankrupt but you profited some mo - oh - ore
Outsourcing jobs
Bain cover up
Two years of tax returns really ain't enough

Everyone else on TV can see it
Everyone else but Fox News

Romney you lie to voters like no body else
Your SuperPAC giant size gets Dems overwhelmed
But when you smile at your wealth it ain't hard tell
You won't show
What you're hiding down below

If only we saw what Ann could see
We'd understand avoiding Maddow so desperately
You change positions for elections, what should I believe
You won't show

What you're hiding down below oh oh
You have got to disclose

So c c c'mon
The Right is Wrong
You'll be exposed as a fraud
Before too lo-ong
I don't know why
you're telling lies
You made billions by firing the "Average Guy"

Everyone else on TV can see it
Everyone else but Fox News

Romney you lie to voters like no body else
Your SuperPAC giant size gets Dems overwhelmed
But when you smile at your wealth it ain't hard tell
You won't show
What you're hiding down below

If only we saw what Ann could see
We'd understand avoiding Maddow so desperately
You change positions for elections, what should I believe?
You won't show
What you're hiding down below
Oh oh oh
You have got to disclose

nah nah nah nah

Romney you lie to voters like no body else
Your SuperPAC giant size gets Dems overwhelmed
I'll bet I'll smile once I see your "off shore accounts"

Romney you lie to voters like no body else
Your SuperPAC giant size gets Dems overwhelmed
But when you smile at your wealth it ain't hard tell
You won't show
What you're hiding down below

If only we saw what Ann could see
We'd understand avoiding Maddow so desperately
You change positions for elections, what should I believe?
You won't show
What you're hiding down below

You have got to disclose
You have got to disclose
