Romney's Tax Defense? . . . Race Bait.

Ole Vladmir must be praying and licking his chops at the prospect of a Willard “Mitt” Romney presidency.  The same crystal ball and beads must be working overtime in Beijing and other capitals around the world as the weakness shown by Willard “Mitt” Romney knows no bounds or seemingly has no bottom as he is systematically...

Romney Takes 'Offensive Tour' To Middle East

Trying to reset the debacle known as his trip to London, Romney headed to Israel for what was in all-intents-and-purposes a photo op fundraiser. But in so doing, as he placated and lauded platitudes, he managed in the same trip to continue  with what he started in London: to offend the majority population in the region.  And he...

Ex-Florida GOP Head: the party is full of crazies, liars and 'whack-a-dos'

I’ll let him speak for himself (via Tampa Bay Times): In a wide-ranging deposition that spanned two days in late May, former Florida Republican Party chairman Jim Greer denounced some party officials as liars and “whack-a-do, right-wing crazies” as he described turmoil in the months before his resignation. He also spoke of party attempts at... Read more »

Romney Gaffes Again; this time in racial proporations!

The Romney camp blows the dog-whistle to his (racist?) fringe.  Said Romney advisor, We are part of an Anglo-Saxon heritage, and he [Romney] feels that the special relationship is special,” the Romney adviser told British newspaper The Telegraph.  “The White House didn’t fully appreciate the shared history we have. Probably not the thing you want to... Read more »

On the Tragedy in Colorado . . .

As we see elite conservatives desperately trying to cling to the last vestiges of post-colonial privilege and status, duping the working-class to side with them along the way in cutting every social safety net like Edward Scissorhands and leaving a dystopia in the wake that would make Orwell, Vonnegut, and Huxley blush what do we we see: a structurally user “unfriendly”...

Willard "Mitt" and His "Free Stuff"

When Willard “Mitt” Romney blows his dog whistle about people wanting “free stuff” he best remember the glass houses cliche. I hate (hate, hate, hate) to resurrect inconvenient lessons in American history such as the “slave-descendants’ reparations” debate and the 100+ years of aristocratic white society benefiting from free or quasi-free labor (along with white indentured and Chinese building...

How Romney-Ryan-Walker May Be Creating . . . Obama Republicans?

Gone are the days when the Republican Party might hope to win over a few conservative Democrats in the manner that Ronald Reagan was said to have in 1980 and 1984.  The Republican’s now need to be more concerned about an exodus of moderate Republicans to an increasingly perceived moderate, 3rd-way and centrist Democratic Party. In... Read more »

"Renounce and Repudiate": Will Republicans Hold Romney to Obama Standard?

Given deafening Republican silence during the national period of anxious disquiet regarding police and state response to the murder of  Trayvon Martin, an unease due in part to Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law signed by Romney supporter former Florida Governor Jeb Bush (and an equal silence from the presumptive Republican presidential nominee Willard “Mitt” Romney), a surveyed reflection of the Republicans and their presumptive standard bearer...

The Rise of Hate Groups in the Era of Obama: Obama’s deficiency herein

In response to a recent Huffington Post article (http://huff.to/xRGKrC), I figured it was time to extract an earlier post. As a multi-ethnic person myself, this was Obama’s GREATEST PR blunder: allowing himself to be posited as the “Black” candidate-cum-President. In my masters thesis I systematically deconstructed the mythology surrounding identity vis-a-vis “the mixed race”.  Long story... Read more »
