Patti Smith - People Have the Power
Today they do, anyway (at least in states where the GOP hasn’t tried to keep people from voting). The rest of the year? Not so much.
In case you’re wondering why all the headlines today are about polls that show Obama pulling away in Ohio: above is what would happen if Obama wins Ohio and Romney wins the historically Democratic state of Wisconsin, as well as Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, New Hampshire and Iowa, all states Obama is either leading or tied with Romney.
Btw, no one believes Romney will win all of those states. So…
I never paid much attention to U.S. Sen. Scott Brown, but I caught some of his debate with Elizabeth Warren, and I have to say: what a fucking tool. He just looks like a drunk frat boy next to her, and the line about her not looking like a Native American just sealed it.
In May 1968, France was paralyzed by a general strike sparked by student protests. The missionaries faced a number of challenges — no mail, no gasoline — but chief among them was difficulty cashing checks sent from their parents, because banks were closed. Romney led a group of missionaries into Spain to find an open bank.
Viva La Revolution!
WHY WON’T THE 48% OF THE COUNTRY WHO ARE LAZY ASSHOLES WHO DON’T TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES VOTE FOR ME?!?!?!
Homer: America, take a good look at your beloved candidates. They're nothing but hideous space reptiles. [unmasks them] [audience gasps in terror] Kodos: It's true, we are aliens. But what are you going to do about it? It's a two-party system; you have to vote for one of us. [murmurs] Man1: He's right, this is a two-party system. Man2: Well, I believe I'll vote for a third-party candidate. Kang: Go ahead, throw your vote away.
Trying to imagine the shit storm if Obama did anything within the vicinity of the flag of a foreign country.
