Brutally honest. the issue of race in the race. infographic

in light of the study making the rounds today about how how 51% of Americans view black Americans, that's on DU's front page. Hard to believe we're still fighting this battle in this century.

The crime is NOT the American workers make union wages...

..the crime is that Americans have come to accept that American workers should be making 1990 wages, with no benefits, and no pensions.

The Unions are not the problem. The fact that people can make a wage that could allow you to buy a modest home, a car, send your kids to a State college, and maybe even have one parent home with the little ones, should still be the NORM in America. It used to be. It used to be that those union jobs created the Middle Class, they supported communities, and gave people a path to the American Dream.

Now, the union-busters and haters, want everyone to work for $10.00 an hour with no benefits, so that people like Romney and the Koch Bros and Adelson, can make even more persona wealth. THAT is the crime here... that too many Americans believe that it's somehow wrong for Americans to have the American Dream.

Gore and Clinton were right. They were gravely concerned about the corporate controlled media..

..and how little voice the American PEOPLE have anymore in the media. they KNEW years ago, that this would start affecting elections. The FEC is fucking worthless, as is the FTC. They are allowing media monopolies, with Clear Channel owning several statins in one market, billboards, etc., and they are owned by BAIN!!

This is not a coincidence folks. The Supreme Court decision, the media control, the republican controlled polling firms, the purchase of the voting machine companies, NONE if it is a coincidence. This entire scenario has been thought-out and planned.

There is a REASON why we have 400+ billionaires on the Richest Americans list, when not that long ago there here 2 or 3. They want a fancier version of Haiti, and the other countries where a handful of people are filthy rich, the and the rest are either living on the streets, or doing the laundry for the billionaires. They want to see the cities deserted, with graffiti and empty storefronts, and men of all ages standing on street corners all day. Thats what they want.. because in Romney's little enclaves, they have gated communities, they have security guards, they have all the things THEY need.

It's all related, these fucking phony narrative that ROmney could win TODAY (thank you to Yahoo Ticket for THAT ONE today...) Let's keep fighting this. Let's keep volunteering, donating, talking to our friends and family. This IS the most important election of our lives. We determine NOW if the right wingers on the SUpreme Court have destroyed our election system forever, and if people like the fucking Koch Brothers will get their ROI on their billion.

and btw... The President is ahead in the swing states.. is Reuters on CRACK?

Buying our democracy, one billionaire at a time. Sickening.

I WANT so badly for the President to win, so that every fucking asshole billionaire like the Kochs and Siegel and Adelman, LOSE all that money they poured in to screw our Country''s election up. I want Karl Rove to break his foot kicking his desk when he realizes how much money he threw away, and now has to face the angry PAC donors who were told that it was a sure thing.. I want every POS involved in stealing votes and suppressing the votes from 80 year old ladies in Ohio and Pennsylvania to be working at Best Buy in January.

I thought of this today. with ALL Of the filthy secret money pouring into elect Romney, he STILL cannot buy a lead. That tells you how fucking putrid he is as a person and a candidate. If you have to spend a billion dollars to elect someone, then it tells you that your product is flawed.

The Koch Brother's money is akin to tying a pork chop around Romney's neck to make the family dog like him. They will NOT steal or democracy.. The President will win, we will get an HONEST majority on the Supreme Court again, and we will move to amend that third world law that allowed those fuckers to buy this election in the first place.

Agreed. It pissed me off that the repubs seem to always LOVE what their candidate does...

Ryan lost his ass to Biden, and what did the republicans do??? They proclaimed loudly WE WON!!!!! That's what you do. You don't sit around an whine, and heap scorn on your candidate, and praise the other guy. It's so frustrating.. it's not a 1st grade spelling bee.

This is how we democrats mess things up every election. We're too nice, we're too fair, and too many of us HAVE to be "right." They want ot appear above it all and sooo urbane, that they go to great lengths to tell you why OUR candidate sucked.

Seriously. Love or hate the republicans, but those assholes know how to win things by circling the wagons around their candidate.. regardless of how putrid or how dishonest they area.

Folks.. we do NOT get a fucking prize for Congeniality. NO ONE is watching us to give out little foil stars because we played the game so nicely. Screw that. I don't care if the President walks out there tonight and has one brown shoe and one black shoe on, and behaves as if he took too much Nyquil. He WON. Period. I think he'll kick ass. He will win it. And even if the pundits say he didn't HE DID. Got it??? there is no fucking award for being "RIGHT"
