My weekend post about Voter ID got me thinking about the civil rights fight for voting rights in the 60s. For those of you that don’t know the story of that fight, you might want to watch the movie Freedom Song that is posted in parts below.
Educate yourself……I want to come back to this topic in my upcoming post, “Hypocrisy and Cowardice”.
Part 12 (this part ends in the middle….proceed to Final when that happens)
Wow….this has caused me to change my mind about Romney/Ryan! Here is Mitt’s (whoops…I meant Mitten’s) healthcare proposal.
Brilliant, absolutely fucking brilliant. Poor people should go to a hospital emergency room whenever they need medical treatment. Are you kidding me? That is what happens now and is one of the primary reason that medical costs are so high.
Just I thought it couldn’t get any better I found another clip of the Mittster this time talking to Glenn Beck, the looniest of the looneys. Be patient and listen closely to what Mitt has to say about people who can’t afford to pay for healthcare going to the hospital for treatment.
No…you ears did not deceive you. Mitt said that when people getting free medical care at a hospital it is a form of socialism. So…the Health Care solution that Mitt proposed for poor people last night is socialism, which means that Mitt is a Socialist. Its even better than that…he goes on to make the best case for Obamacare that I have ever heard! Unbelievable…..
Let me say it one more time….you cannot trust anything this man says. He has told so many lies that he can no longer keep track of them. For a while I thought he was just evil and was doing all of this intentionally but at this point I am leaning more towards the opinion that he is just stupid. To back up this position, I offer you the following news story from the Huffington Post today.
Mitt Romney Wonders Why Ann
Romney’s Airplane Windows Don’t
Making post-fundraiser comments this weekend, presidential candidate Mitt Romney revealed a tenuous grip on the science of aviation, despite the fact that he and his wife, Ann, have been flying around the country this summer on the campaign trail.
After his wife’s plane was forced to make an emergency landing this weekend,Romney told the Los Angeles Times, he was worried for her safety. The candidate then continued on a bizarre tangent that showed just how little the Republican nominee understands about flight.
“I appreciate the fact that she is on the ground, safe and sound. And I don’t think she knows just how worried some of us were,” Romney told the paper. “When you have a fire in an aircraft, there’s no place to go, exactly.”
Romney said the biggest problem in a distressed aircraft is that “the windows don’t open. I don’t know why they don’t do that. It’s a real problem. So it’s very dangerous.”
The main reason airplane windows don’t open is because there isn’t enough oxygen at cruising altitude to keep passengers alive. (The fear of window or cabin failures, which would lead to potentially fatal hypoxia, is why many planes are equipped with emergency oxygen masks.)
“You can’t find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft, because the windows don’t open,” Romney told the Times, suggesting that additional oxygen in the cabin during the electrical malfunction could’ve alleviated the problem. In fact, if there were an electrical fire on board, additional oxygen would have fed the flames.
Strangely, Romney seemed to acknowledge the importance of oxygen later in his comments. “Fortunately, there was enough oxygen for the pilot and copilot to make a safe landing in Denver,” he said.
Hypoxia aboard aircraft has led to many fatalities over the years, including the 1999 crash that killed golfer Payne Stewart. In 2005, Helios Airways Flight 522 crashed, killing all 121 aboard after the crew was incapacitated.
This is the man that wants us to elect him as President of the United States………scary stuff!
