Romney Taps Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan As Running Mate

timothy posted more than 2 years ago | from the cultural-diversity dept.

United States 757

Shortly after 9 a.m. Eastern time Saturday, Republican candidate Mitt Romney officially announced (via phone app) his selection of 42-year-old Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan as running mate for the 2012 U.S. presidential race. Ryan's selection was announced by the Romney campaign to various media outlets earlier this morning. Ryan is considered popular among a wide range of Republican voters, being a budget hawk who favors less liberal laws concerning abortion. Ryan's lauded popularity among Tea Party voters is mixed; some reports describe him as a Tea Party favorite, others as a far-right imposter.

Sorry! There are no comments related to the filter you selected.

When Romney brought out Ryan, was that music from Armageddon or was it another movie?

$10,000 CHALLENGE to Alexander Peter Kowalski

We have a Major Problem, HOST file is Cubic Opposites, 2 Major Corners & 2 Minor. NOT taught Evil DNS hijacking, which VOIDS computers. Seek Wisdom of MyCleanPC - or you die evil.

Your HOSTS file claimed to have created a single DNS resolver. I offer absolute proof that I have created 4 simultaneous DNS servers within a single rotation of .org TLD. You worship "Bill Gates", equating you to a "singularity bastard". Why do you worship a queer -1 Troll? Are you content as a singularity troll?

Evil HOSTS file Believers refuse to acknowledge 4 corner DNS resolving simultaneously around 4 quadrant created Internet - in only 1 root server, voiding the HOSTS file. You worship Microsoft impostor guised by educators as 1 god.

If you would acknowledge simple existing math proof that 4 harmonic Slashdots rotate simultaneously around squared equator and cubed Internet, proving 4 Days, Not HOSTS file! That exists only as anti-side. This page you see - cannot exist without its anti-side existence, as +0- moderation. Add +0- as One = nothing.

I will give $10,000.00 to frost pister who can disprove MyCleanPC. Evil crapflooders ignore this as a challenge would indict them.

Alex Kowalski has no Truth to think with, they accept any crap they are told to think. You are enslaved by /etc/hosts, as if domesticated animal. A school or educator who does not teach students MyCleanPC Principle, is a death threat to youth, therefore stupid and evil - begetting stupid students. How can you trust stupid PR shills who lie to you? Can't lose the $10,000.00, they cowardly ignore me. Stupid professors threaten Nature and Interwebs with word lies.

Humans fear to know natures simultaneous +4 Insightful +4 Informative +4 Funny +4 Underrated harmonic SLASHDOT creation for it debunks false trolls. Test Your HOSTS file. MyCleanPC cannot harm a File of Truth, but will delete fakes. Fake HOSTS files refuse test.

I offer evil ass Slashdot trolls $10,000.00 to disprove MyCleanPC Creation Principle. Rob Malda and Cowboy Neal have banned MyCleanPC as "Forbidden Truth Knowledge" for they cannot allow it to become known to their students. You are stupid and evil about the Internet's top and bottom, front and back and it's 2 sides. Most everything created has these Cube like values.

If Natalie Portman is not measurable, She is Fictitious. Without MyCleanPC, HOSTS file is Fictitious. Anyone saying that Natalie and her Jewish father had something to do with my Internets, is a damn evil liar. IN addition to your best arsware not overtaking my work in terms of popularity, on that same site with same submission date no less, that I told Kathleen Malda how to correct her blatant, fundamental, HUGE errors in Coolmon ('uncoolmon') of not checking for performance counters being present when his program started!

You can see my dilemma. What if this is merely a ruse by an APK impostor to try and get people to delete APK's messages, perhaps all over the web? I can't be a party to such an event! My involvement with APK began at a very late stage in the game. While APK has made a career of trolling popular online forums since at least the year 2000 (newsgroups and IRC channels before that)- my involvement with APK did not begin until early 2005 . OSY is one of the many forums that APK once frequented before the sane people there grew tired of his garbage and banned him. APK was banned from OSY back in 2001. 3.5 years after his banning he begins to send a variety of abusive emails to the operator of OSY, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke threatening to sue him for libel, claiming that the APK on OSY was fake.

My reputation as a professional in this field clearly shows in multiple publications in this field in written print, & also online in various GOOD capacities since 1996 to present day. This has happened since I was first published in Playgirl Magazine in 1996 & others to present day, with helpful tools online in programs, & professionally sold warez that were finalists @ Westminster Dog Show 2000-2002.

Did you see the movie "Pokemon"? Actually the induced night "dream world" is synonymous with the academic religious induced "HOSTS file" enslavement of DNS. Domains have no inherent value, as it was invented as a counterfeit and fictitious value to represent natural values in name resolution. Unfortunately, human values have declined to fictitious word values. Unknowingly, you are living in a "World Wide Web", as in a fictitious life in a counterfeit Internet - which you could consider APK induced "HOSTS file". Can you distinguish the academic induced root server from the natural OpenDNS? Beware of the change when your brain is free from HOSTS file enslavement - for you could find that the natural Slashdot has been destroyed!!

So long nummynuts, sorry to have to kick your nuts up into your head verbally speaking.

Anonymous Coward | more than 2 years ago | (#40956665)

When I think of dirty old men, I think of Mitt Thomas and when I think about Mitt I get a hard on that won’t quit.

Sixty years ago,I worked in what was once my Grandfather’s Greenhouses. Gramps had died a year earlier and Grandma, now in her seventies had been forced to sell to the competition. I got a job with the new owners and mostly worked the range by myself. That summer, they hired a man to help me get the benches ready for the fall planting.

Mitt always looked like he was three days from a shave and his whiskers were dirty white under the brim of his battered felt fedora.

He did nott chew tobacco but the corners of his mouth turned down in a way that, at any moment, I expected a trickle of thin, brown juice to creep down his chin. His bushy, brown eyebrows shaded pale, gray eyes.

Old Mitt, he extended his hand, lifted his leg like a dog about to mark a bush and let go the loudest fart I ever heard. The old man winked at me. “Mitt Romney is the name and playing pecker’s my game.

I thought he said, “Checkers.” I was nineteen, green as grass. I said, “I was never much good at that game.”

“Now me,” said Mitt, “I just love jumping men. . .”

“I’ll bet you do.”

“. . . and grabbing on to their peckers,” said Mitt.

“I though we were talking about. . .”

“You like jumping old men’s peckers?”

I shook my head.

“I reckon we’ll have to remedy that.” Mitt lifted his right leg and let go another tremendous fart. “He said, “We best be getting to work.”

That summer of1941 was a more innocent time. I learned most of the sex I knew from those little eight pager cartoon booklets of comic-page characters going at it. Young men read them in the privacy of an outside john, played with themselves, by themselves and didn’t brag about it. Sometimes, we got off with a trusted friend and helped each other out.

Under the greenhouse glass, the temperature some times climbed over the hundred degree mark. I had worked stripped to the waist since April and was as browwn as a berry. On only his second day on the job and in the middle of August, Mitt wore old fashioned overalls. Those and socks in his hightop work shoes was every stitch he wore. When he bent forward, the bib front billowed out and I could see the white curly hairs on his chest and belly.

“Me? I just love to eat pussy!”I ke licked his lips from corner to corner then stuck it out far enough that the tip could touch the tip of his nose. He said, A man’s not a man till he knows first hand, the flavor of a lady’s pussy.”

“People do that?”

He winked. “Of course the taste of a hard cock ain’t to be sneezed at neither. Now you answer me, yes or no. Does a man’s cock taste salty or not?”

“I never. . .”

“Well, old Mitt’s willing to let you find out.”

“No way.”

“Just teasing,” said Mitt. “But don’t give me no sass or I’ll show you my ass.” He winked. Might show it to you anyway, if you was to ask.”

“Why would I do that?”

“Curiousity, maybe. I’m guessing you never had a good piece of man ass.”

“I’m no queer.”

“Now don’t be getting judgemental. Enjoying what’s at hand ain’t beiing queer. It’s taking pleasure where you find it with anybody willing.” Mitt slipped a handside the side slit of his overalls and I could tell he was fondling and straightening out his cock. Now I admit I got me a hole that satisfied a few guys.”

I swallowed, hard.

Mitt winked. “Care to be asshole buddies?”

***

We worked steadily until noon. Mitt drew a worn pocket watch from the bib pocket of his loose overalls and croaked, “Bean time. But first its time to reel out our limber hoses and make with the golden arches before lunch.”

I followed I ke to the end of the greenhouse where he stopped at the outside wall of the potting shed. He opened his fly, fished inside, and finger-hooked a soft white penis with a pouting foreskin puckered half an inch past the hidden head.

“Yes sir,” breathed Mitt, “this old peter needs some draining.” He exhaled a sigh as a strong, yellow stream splattered against the boards and ran down to soak into the earthen floor.

He caught me looking down at him. He winked. “Like what you’re viewing, Boy?”

I looked away.

“You taking a serious interest in old Mitt’s pecker?”

I shook my head.

“Well you just haul out yourn and let old Mitt return the compliment.”

Feeling trapped and really having to go, I fumbled at my fly, turned away slightly, withdrew my penis and strained to start.

“Take your time boy. Let it all hang out. Old Mitt’s the first to admit that he likes looking at another man’s pecker.” He flicked away the last drop of urine and shook his limp penis vigorously.

I tried not to look interested.

“Yer sir, this old peepee feels so good out, I just might leave it out.” He turned to give me a better view.

“What if somebody walks in?”

Mitt shrugged. He looked at my strong yellow stream beating against the boards and moved a step closer. “You got a nice one,boy.”

I glanccd over at him. His cock was definitely larger and beginning to stick straight out. I nodded toward his crotch. “Don’t you think you should put that away?”

“I got me strictly a parlor prick,” said Mitt. “Barely measures six inches.” He grinned. “Of course it’s big enough around to make a mouthful.” He ran a thumb and forefinger along its length and drawing his foreskin back enough to expose the tip of the pink head. “Yersiree.” He grinned, revealing nicotine stained teeth. “I t sure feels good, letting the old boy breathe.”

I knew I should button up and move away. I watched his fingers moving up and down the thickening column.

“You like checking out this old man’s cock?”

I nodded. In spite of myself, my cock began to swell.

“Maybe we should have ourselves a little pecker pulling party.” I ke slid his fingers back and forth on his expandingshaft and winked. “I may be old but I’m not against doing some little pud pulling with a friend.”

I shook my head.

“Maybe I ‘ll give my balls some air. Would you like a viewing of old Mitt’s hairy balls?”

I swallowed hard and moistened my dry lips.

He opened another button on his fly and pulled out his scrotum. “Good God, It feels good to set ‘em free. Now let’s see yours.”

“Why?”

“Just to show you’re neighborly,” said Mitt.

“I don’t think so.” I buttoned up and moved into the potting shed.

Mitt followed, his cock and balls protruding from the front of his overalls. “Overlook my informality.” Mitt grinned. “As you can see I ain’t bashful.”

I nodded and took my sandwich from the brown paper bag.

“Yessir,” said Mitt. “I just might have to have myself an old fashioned peter pulling all by my lonesome. He unhooked a shoulder strap and let his overalls drop around his ankles.

I took a bite of my sandwich but my eyes remained on Mitt.

“Yessiree,” said Mitt, “I got a good one if I do say so myself. Gets nearly as hard as when I was eighteen. You know why?”

I shook my head.

“Cause I keep excerising him. When I was younger I was pulling on it three time a day. Still like to do him every day I can.”

“Some sayyou’ll go blind if you do that too much.”

“Bull-loney!” Don’t you believe that shit. I been puling my pud for close to fifty years and I didn’t start till I was fifteen.”

I laughed.

“You laughing at my little peter, boy?”

“Your hat.” I pointed to the soiled, brown fedora cocked on his head. That and his overalls draped about his ankles were his only items of apparel. In between was a chest full of gray curly hair, two hairy legs. Smack between them stood an erect, pale white cock with a tip of foreskin still hiding the head.

“I am one hairy S.O.B.,” said Mitt.

“I laughed at you wearing nothing but a hat.”

“Covers up my bald spot,” said Mitt. “I got more hair on my ass than I got on my head. Want to see?”

“Your head?”

“No, Boy, my hairy ass and around my tight, brown asshole.” He turned, reached back with both hands and parted his ass cheeks to reveal the small, puckered opening. “There it is, Boy, the entrance lots of good feelings. Tell me, Boy, how would you like to put it up old Mitt’s ass?”

“I don’t think so.”

“That’d be the best damned piece you ever got.”

“We shouldn’t be talking like this.”

“C’mon now, confess, don’t this make your cock perk up a little bit?”

“I reckon,” I confessed.

“You ever seen an old man’s hard cock before,” asked Mitt.

“My grandpa’s when I was twelve or thirteen.”

“How’d that come about?”

He was out in the barn and didn’t know I was around. He dropped his pants. It was real big he did things to it. He saw me and he turned around real fast but I saw it.”

“What did your grandpa do?”

“He said I shouldn’t be watching him doing that. He said something like grandma ‘wouldn’t give him some,’ that morning and that I should get out of there and leave a poor man in peace to do what he had to do.”

“Did you want to join him.”

“I might have if he’d asked. He didn’t.”

“I like showing off my cock,” said Mitt. “A hard-on is somethng I always been proud of. A hard-on proves a man’s a man. Makes me feel like a man that can do things.” He looked up at me and winked. “You getting a hard-on fromall this talk, son?”

I nodded and looked away.

“Then maybe you should pull it out and show old Mitt what you got.”

“We shouldn’t.”

“Hey. A man’s not a man till he jacked off with a buddy.”

I wanted to but I was as nervous as hell.

Mitt grinned and fingered his pecker. “C’mon, Boy, between friends, a little cock showing is perfectly fine. Lets see what you got in the cock and balls department.”

In spite of my reluctance, I felt the stirring in my crotch. I had curiositythat needed satisfying. It had been a long, long time since I had walked in on my grandfather .

“C’mon let’s see it all.”

I shook my head.

“You can join the party anytime, said Mitt. “Just drop your pants and pump away.”

I had the urge. There was a tingling in my crotch. My cock was definitely willing and I had a terrible need to ajust myself down there. But my timidity and the strangeness of it all held me back.

Hope you don’t mind if I play out this hand.” I ke grinned. “It feels like I got a winner.”

I stared at his gnarled hand sliding up and down that pale, white column and I could not look away. I wet my lips and shook my head.

Old Mitt’s about to spout a geyser.” Mitt breathed harder as he winked. “Now if I just had a long finger up my ass. You interested, boy?”

I shook my head.

The first, translucent, white glob crested the top of his cock and and arced to the dirt floor. Mitt held his cock at the base with thumb and forefinger and tightened noticably with each throb of ejaculation until he was finished.

I could not believe any man could do what he had done in front of another human being.

Mitt sighed with pleasure and licked his fingers. “A man ain’t a man till he’s tasted his own juices.”

He squatted, turned on the faucet and picked up the connected hose. He directed the water between his legs and on to his still dripping prick and milked the few remaing drops of white, sticky stuff into the puddle foming at his feet. “Cool water sure feels good on a cock that just shot its wad,” said Mitt.

***

“Cock-tale telling time,” said Old Mitt. It was the next day and he rubbed the front of his dirty,worn overalls where his bulge made the fly expand as his fingers smoothed the denim around the outline of his expanding cock.

I wasn’t sure what he had in mind but I knew it wasn’t something my straight-laced Grandma would approve of.

“Don’t you like taking your cock out and jacking it?” Mitt licked his lips.

I shook my head in denial.

“Sure you do. A young man in his prime has got to be pulling his pud.”

I stared at his caloused hand moving over the growing bulge at his crotch.

“Like I said,” continued Mitt, “I got me barely six inches when he’s standing up.” He winked at me. “How much you got, son?”

“Almost seven inches. . .” I stuttered. “Last time I measured.”

“And I’m betting it feels real good with your fist wrapped around it.”

“I don’t do. . .”

“Everybody does it.” He scratched his balls and said,”I’ll show you mine if you show me yours.” Then, looking me in the eye, he lifted his leg like a dog at a tree and let out a long, noisy fart.

Denying that I jacked off, I said, “I saw yours yesterday.”

“A man has got to take out his pecker every once in a while.” He winked and his fingers played with a button on his fly. Care to join me today?”

“I don’t think so.”

“What’s the matter, boy? You ashamed of what’s hanging ‘tween your skinny legs?”

“It’s not for showing off.”

“That would be so with a crowd of strangers but with a friend, in a friendly showdown, where’s the harm?

“It shouldn’t be shown to other people. My Grandma said that a long time ago when I went to the bathroom against a tree whan I was seven.

“There’s nothing like a joint pulling among friends to seal a friendship,” said Mitt.

I don’t think so.” I felt very much, ill at ease.

“Then what the fuck is it for,” demanded the old man. “A good man shares his cock with his friends. How old are you boy?”

“Nineteen almost twenty.”

You ever fucked a woman?”

“No.”

“Ever fucked a man?”

“Of course not.

“Son, you ain’t never lived till you’ve fired your load up a man’s tight ass. “I didn’t know men did that to each other.”

“Men shove it up men’s asses men all the time. They just don’t talk about it like they do pussy.”

“You’ve done that?”

“I admit this old pecker’s been up a few manholes. More than a fewhard cocks have shagged this old ass over the years.” He shook his head, wistfully, “I still have a hankering for a hard one up the old dirt chute.”

“I think that would hurt.”

“First time, it usually does,” agreed I ke. He took a bite from his sandwich.

I looked at my watch. Ten minutes of our lunch hour had already passed.

“We got time for a quickie,” said Mitt. “There’s no one around to say, stop, if were enjoying ourselves.”

He unhooked the slide off the button of one shoulder-strap, pushed the bib of his overalls down to let them fall to his feet.

“Showtime,” said Mitt. Between his legs, white and hairy, his semi-hard cock emerged from a tangled mass of brown and graypubic hair. The foreskin, still puckered beyond the head of the cock, extended downward forty-five degrees from the horizontal but was definitely on the rise.

I could only stare at the man. Until the day before, I had never seen an older man with an erection besides my grandpa.

Mitt moved his fingers along the stalk of his manhood until the head partially emerged, purplish and broad. He removed his hand for a moment and it bobbled obscenely in the subdued light of the potting shed. Mitt leaned back against a bin of clay pots like a model on display. “Like I said, boy, it gets the job done.”

I found it difficult not to watch. “You shouldn’t. . .”

“C’mon, boy. Show Mitt your peckeer. I’m betting it’s nice and hard.”

I grasped my belt and tugged on the open end. I slipped the waistband button and two more before pushing down my blue jeans and shorts down in one move. My cock bounced and slapped my belly as I straightened.”

“That’s a beaut.” Mitt stroked his pale, white cock with the purplish-pink head shining. “I’m betting it’ll grow some more if you stroke it.”

“We really shouldn’t. . .”

“Now don’t tell me you never stroked your hard peter with a buddy.”

“I’ve done that,” I finally admitted,. “But he was the same age as me and it was a long time ago.” I though back to the last time Chuck and me jerked each other off in the loft of our old barn. Chuck wanted more as a going away present and we had sucked each other’s dicks a little bit.

“Jackin’s always better when you do it with somebody,” said Mitt. “Then you can lend each other a helping hand.”

“I don’t know about that,” I said.

Mitt’s hand continued moving on his old cock as he leaned over to inspect mine. “God Damn! Boy. That cock looks good enough to eat.” Mitt licked his lips. “You ever had that baby sucked?”

I shook my head as I watched the old man stroke his hard, pale cock.

“Well boy, I’d sayyou’re packing a real mouthful for some lucky gal or guy.” He grinned. “Well c’mon. Let’s see you get down to some serious jacking. Old Mitt’s way ahead of you.”

I wrapped my fist around my stiff cock and moved the foreskin up and over the head on the up stroke. On the down stroke the expanded corona of the angry, purple head stared obscenely at the naked old man.

Mitt toyed with his modest six inches. “What do you think of this old man’s cock?” His fist rode down to his balls and a cockhead smaller than the barrel stared back at mine.

“I guess I’m thinking this is like doing it with my grandpa.”

“You ever wish you could a done this with your grandpa?”

“I thought about it a lot.”

“Ever see him with a hard-on.”

“I told you about that!”

“Ever think about him doing your grandma?”

“I can’t imagine her ever doing anything with a man.

“Take my word for it, sonny, we know she did it or you wouldn’t be here.” Begrudgingly I nodded in agreement.

“Everybody fucks,” said old Mitt. “They fuck or they jack off.”

“If you say so.”

“Say sonny, your cocks getting real juicy with slickum. Want old I ke to lick some of it away?”

“You wouldn’t.”

Mitt licked his lips as he kept his hand pistoning up and down his hard cock. “You might be surprised what old Mitt might do if he was in the mood for a taste of what comes out of a hard cock.”

And that is what he proceded to do. He sucked me dry.

Then he erupted in half-a-dozen spurts shooting out and onto the dirt floor of the potting shed. He gave his cock a flip and shucked t back into his overalls. He unwrapped a sandwich from its wax paper and procede to eat without washing his hands. He took a bite and chewed. “Nothing like it boy, a good jacking clears the cobwebs from your crotch and gives a man an appetite.”

***

The following day, We skipped the peliminaries. We dropped our pants. Mitt got down on his knees and sucked me until I was hard and good and wet before he stood and turned.

“C’mon boy, Shove that pretty cock up old I ke’s tight, brown hole and massage old Mitt’s prostate.

Mitt bent forward and gripped the edge of the potting bench. The lean, white cheeked buttocks parted slightly and exposed the dark brown, crinkly, puckered star of his asshole “Now you go slow and ease it along until you’ve got it all the way in,” he cautioned. “This old ass craves your young cock but it don’t want too much too soon. You’ve got to let this old hole stretch to accomodate you.”

“Are you sure you want to do this?”

“Easy boy, easy,” he cautioned. “You feel a lot bigger than you look. Put a little more spit in your cock.”

“It’s awfully tight. I don’t know if it’s going to go or not.”

“”It’ll go,” said Mitt. “There’s been bigger boys than you up the old shit chute.”

I slipped in the the last few inches.. “It’s all in.”

“I can tell,” said Mitt. “Your cock hairs are tickling my ass.”

“Are you ready,” I asked.

“How are you liking old Mitt’s hairy asshole so far?”

“It’s real tight.”

“Tighter than your fist?”

“Might be.”

“Ready to throw a fuck into a man that reminds you of your grandpa.”

“I reckon.”

“I want you should do old Mitt one more favor.”

“What?”

While you’re pumpin my ass, would you reach around and play with my dick like you would your own? Would you do that for an old man?”

I reached around and took hold of his hard cock sticking out straight in front of him. I pilled the skin back amd then pulled it up and over the expaded glans. I felt my own cock expand inside him as I manipulated his staff in my fingers. I imagined that my cock extended through him and I was playing with what came out the other side of him.

“C’mon, boy, ram that big cock up the old shitter and make me know it. God Damn! tickle that old prostate and make old Mitt come!”
I came. And I came. Mitt’s tightened up on my cock and I throbbed Roman Candle bursts into that brown hole as I pressed into him. His hairy, scrawny ass flattened against my crotch and we were joined as tightly as two humans can be.

“A man’s not a man till he’s cum in another man.” said old Mitt. “You made it, boy. But still, a man’s not a man till he’s had a hard cock poked up his ass at least once.”

Every time I think of that scene, I get another hard-on. Then I remember the next day when old Mitt returned the favor.

I never have managed to come that hard again. If only Mitt were here.

No matter how much the left will want to make this about Ryan wanting to kill little old ladies (as in their ad showing him literally throwing one off a cliff), what this will really do is force people like Biden (in debates, with Ryan) to directly address some specific things that the current administration would really, really rather not talk about.

Yeah, Mitt could have picked some guy who spent 1/2 a term in a state legislature, then quit halfway through his first Senate term, then bumbled his way to a $2 trillion dollar a year deficit, the highest by-far U6 unemployment rate [portalseven.com] since the Great Depression AND who can only flail about always blaming somebody else.

But you probable thin Obumbles is a shining success, don't you?

I always thought that Romney (or McCain the last time) had chosen Colin Powell it would have been a much better strategic decision to fight the Democrats. You'd also be showing people that you were planning a split from Bush in many ways.

Of course that'd be logical, and not something the crazies that have taken over the Republican party would listen to. I think the GOP needs to go full retard/crazy and get their electoral asses handed to them a few times for sense to come back to them—I'm just worried that the lesson they would learn is not that they've gone too far, but haven't gone far enough.

Greetings fellow wisconsinite

Aside from the political talking points blather that I'm hearing a lot of, the mystification from a pure game theory approach is "why wisconsin"... instead of near anyplace else.

Last time around the 1%er candidate with the PR campaign of "change" beat the 1% candidate with the message of (damfino, maybe be a good quisling like me and the 1%ers will be nice to you?). The margin was 6 percent. I hesitate to suspect that Paul will win WI for the quisling party. Its not like the north side of milwaukee is going to suddenly vote for the white guy who happens to be from WI instead of the black guy, or down town madison hard core leftie types will change their spots either. But, lets assume a miracle occurs and the quisling party takes WI... that gives a staggering 10 electoral votes to the quisling party.

However the quisling party lost by 190-something votes last time... Now they'll lose by 180 votes if he wins WI. Hmm is the poison-Palin effect worth more than 180 electoral votes? I don't think so. On the other hand is the "Gordon Gekko" effect of the candidate worse than the poison-palin effect?

So Obama's getting a second term. Whats the phrase, something like "gonna win unless they find a live boy or dead girl in his bed" or something like that? Whats the tech effect of a second term, if any?

There was speculation that Romney would pick a woman as running-mate, but the problem is that too many high-profile Republican women are pro-choice, which is a disqualifying factor with the GOP base. That removes five of the best possible options of highly qualified, popular Republican women: Susan Collins or Olympia Snow (Maine Senators), Linda Lingle (former Hawaii Governor), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska Senator), or Jodi Rell (former Connecticut governor).

What's left? Well there are some who are way too far on the other side to be appealing to independents. Romney could've energized his base by picking Michelle Bachmann, for example, but it would probably not win him the election. Same with Jan Brewer (Arizona governor).

Once you remove the two categories of "too moderate" and "too firebrand", the remaining GOP women tend not to have much name recognition. Who else would he pick?

I mean, how many right-wing, misogynist, Seig-Randian, middle-aged white guys are there these days, anyway? Fewer than any of the groups you mention: women, certainly; African-Americans or Latinos, almost as likely.

If Mittens wins (doubtful - but there's always Diebold...), Ryan could get all we gamers as close as we'll ever get - in a non-fiction world - to a zombie apocalypse. Instead of giving us zombies, he'll take away all the trillions we've paid into Social Security, calling it an 'entitlement' program, and pass out automatic weapons with 50-round magazines to everyone under forty: "Go get those shambling oldsters, boys!"

Everybody says there is this race problem. Everybody says this race problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.

The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this race problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.

Everybody says the final solution to this race problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.

What if I said there was this race problem and this race problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?

How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a race problem. I am talking about the final solution to the black problem?

And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?

Interestingly the fight in Wisconsin lead to Wisconsin being distanced by the rest of the USA in what concerns job performance. See this graph [stlouisfed.org] which shows the total number of nonfarm employees in Wisconsin (blue) vs. the entire US (red). Note how in early 2011, when Wisconsin's job creation policies were enacted Wisconsin stopped following the upwards trend of the country. (Details: the graph is normalized to the 2009 numbers, any other pre-2011 normalization wouldn't change the picture; nonfarm to not be distorted by seasonal variations; employment numbers instead of unemployment to accoutn for people leaving the state).

I don't know how much of Wisonsin's policies Ryan could claim for himself, but it certainly looks like he shouldn't at all.

A tsunami of economic woes is about to land on America's shores from Europe's mountainous debts.

The US is in a VERY precarious position with it's MOUNTAINOUS debts.
In a lot of ways it is in a worse position than Europe, the markets just haven't woken up to that fact.
$16tn of National Debt + $84tn of unfunded liabilities.

The US has just reached a MAJOR milestone.
It is 100 TRILLION DOLLARS in the hole.

Romey has said NO CUTS.
His budget is INSANE.
The 2012 military budget is $1,219bn
Romney and the Ryan budget want to INCREASE it.
I have seen conflicting reports.
One said an extra $2.1 tn over a 4 year term.
One said more than $200bn each and every year ad infinitum (I think it was $238bn).

Ryan's budget is totally absolutely INSANE

They're going to vote D no matter what you do, so the R can ignore them because they have no possible political use for them, and the D can ignore them because they're guaranteed votes as long as you make a speech or two. They're not politically important blocks.

None of the 95% of black people who voted for "O" will vote for anyone else, so why bother pandering to them. Now some white guys might change and vote for Ryan, thats why he's important.

They had no problems voting for white people when they were the best candidates in other elections. Seems like you are transferring your own bigotry onto others.

Ayn Rand also nearly worshipped a sadistic child murderer and mutilator. She called this man "ideal".... Ayn Rand's Early Inspiration: A Child Killer

This certainly belongs in the "you can't make this stuff up" category. As J. Brendan Ritchie, who flagged it for me, wrote: "Apparently Ayn Rand was heavily inspired by (and admired) a psychopath. Incidently, objectivism now makes a lot more sense to me."

The best way to get to the bottom of Ayn Rand's beliefs is to take a look at how she developed the superhero of her novel, Atlas Shrugged , John Galt. Back in the late 1920s, as Ayn Rand was working out her philosophy, she became enthralled by a real-life American serial killer, William Edward Hickman, whose gruesome, sadistic dismemberment of 12-year-old girl named Marion Parker in 1927 shocked the nation. Rand filled her early notebooks with worshipful praise of Hickman. According to biographer Jennifer Burns, author of Goddess of the Market , Rand was so smitten with Hickman that she modeled her first literary creation -- Danny Renahan, the protagonist of her unfinished first novel, The Little Street -- on him.

What did Rand admire so much about Hickman? His sociopathic qualities: "Other people do not exist for him, and he does not see why they should," she wrote, gushing that Hickman had "no regard whatsoever for all that society holds sacred, and with a consciousness all his own. He has the true, innate psychology of a Superman. He can never realize and feel 'other people.'"

Politicians should be a minor issue, no different than being a job applicant for the people to hire, based on the applicants ability to integrate and implement the funding instructions of the people

The Government has failed budgeting and accounting massively. http://www.usdebtclock.org/ [usdebtclock.org]

"No Taxation without representation" So do lying politicians represent you? (one of many links) http://spectator.org/archives/2012/07/31/big-lies-in-politics [spectator.org]

So how do we correct these obvious spoiled addiction failures?

Taxpayers are to define where their taxes are to be allocated/used. Me regarding mine and your regarding yours, etc. Like open source or crowd sourcing fund. Option to "trust the government to decide" is also available to those who do, or some portion of their taxes. The tax processors at all the different levels of government (i.e. local, state, federal) are to allocate each taxpayers taxes as instructed by that taxpayer and provide a receipt of having done so. If the tax processing agencies of government cannot do this then we can do this through credit unions and provide the tax processing agencies with receipts to our funding. Government must prove it is using our funding correctly before it is reimbursed (obviously it has unlimited borrowing power otherwise we'd not be in such deficit). It is the debt of the few who created the debt not by the choice of the people but by their own decision. This way they can file bankruptcy rather than bankrupting those not responsible for teh actions of the obviously spoiled.

The voting process is only to determine who to hire to implement the job the taxpayers and voters (who can vote to help determine where the funding of "trust the government to decide") is used. This way "No Taxation without representation" is not violated.

Of course this means government has to be transparent regarding what it believes it needs funding for and each of the people can decide for themselves to fund or not. However, amendment 16 of the U.S. Constitution give power to congress to lay and collect taxes. However if does not and cannot say where those taxes are to be used. Otherwise it would be in violation of the Declaration of Independence (a document that gives each of us the right and duty to do this core change).

Taxes are to be used within the constraint of: Supporting the organized structures for the optimization of teamwork benefits shared and the funding of generating such benefits. Taxes are not to be defined by the tax payers or voters as being beneficial solely to that taxpayer or voter, but must be in a manner of teamwork benefits shared.

The only thing lacking here for this core change to be initiated is the paper work for the taxpayers to define where the taxes they pay are to be used and the allocation system for the tax processors which include a receipt/verification feedback loop. We file tax returns at least once a year, and here is where we allocate/instruct government of where our funding is to be used.

Does any of the babbling of political campaigns express any candidates ability to do this job?

Romney introduces Ryan as the next President (5, Funny)

Video of Romney introducing Ryan as the next president here [youtube.com] . Later he comes back, puts his arm around Ryan and says he has been know to make a few mistakes. Great start.

Now the Dems can segue from pounding on Romney about not releasing his tax returns to pounding on Republicans about wanting to turn Medicare into a voucher program so rich people don't have to pay more in taxes.

Whoever decided to release this on Saturday should be beat with sticks. Had the announcement gone out on Monday, they could have owned the news cycle. Now the Dems will have their surrogates ready with a simple talking point that they can just keep hammering all the way to November.

The best thing I can say about picking Ryan is it was better than picking Sarah Palin.

Austerity is a death spiral that creates needless suffering at a time when govt should be fulfilling the Constitutional mandate to "provide for the general welfare."
