Report: Mitt Romney Even Flip-Flopped on Missionary Position - By Don Davis



Women's Prayer Group Praying That the Women at MRFF All Get Incurable Breast Cancer


Mighty white of you, Ann!

"And then she stepped ON the ball!"

Romney alluded to the fact that not all women can stay at home saying, "I love the fact that there are women out there who don't have a choice and they must go to work and they still have to raise the kids. Thank goodness that we value those people too. And sometimes life isn't easy for any of us."

Romney went on to say, "I mean, who would brush my hair for me in the morning, turn down my sheets at night, and raise my children while I'm out riding my dressage ponies?"

"Work? Ah-hahahahaha!"


Global Fire Ministries claims that God herself rained down pieces of "manna" during a revival in Wisconsin. Looks like oyster crackers to me, but keep sending your money in, nutjobs! And WTF is going on at 0:25??

FYI: If you're already shopping for Xmas, Global Fire also sells $19.99 instructional DVDs on how to raise the dead,



Bill O'Reilly says gay marriage could lead to turtle marriage. Rick Santorum says it could lead to dog marriage. And now Missouri Rep. Dwight Scharnhorst says it could lead to goat marriage.

Sponsors of legislation in Missouri that would eliminate discussions of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people in public schools and prohibit teachers from addressing bullying based on sexual orientation told the Huffington Post that they "do not want the homosexual agenda taught in the schools." Rep. Dwight Scharnhorst (R), a co-sponsor of the so-called Don't Say Gay bill, argued that sexual orientation issues "should be taught by parents, clergy and physician" and warned that teaching about LGBT issues would lead to other discussions. "There is no need to talk about Billy wanting to marry a goat," he said.

While I'm sure Representative Scharnhorst's ardent supporters in the heartland of Missouri have some wild desires, that doesn't mean they're shared by everyone!

By the way, why on earth would you want to prohibit teachers from addressing bullying regardless of the rationale behind it? Why would you want to codify and officially condone bullying?

This could potentially become state law, and the result would be that a generation of young adults in Missouri will have learned that hate-crimes are protected speech.

You have to be a very miserable person to sponsor this kind of legislation.


By now I'm sure you're aware that Steve Doocy added extra words to a quote from President Obama: "Unlike some people, I wasn't born with a silver spoon in my mouth." Doocy added the "unlike some people" in order to make it seem as if the president was aiming the line at Mitt Romney. He wasn't.

So Doocy evidently clarified the remark this morning, but it's too damn late. The fabrication is already out there and people who love, love, love Fox & Friends already believe the president was talking about super-rich Mitt Romney. This is how Fox News operates. They fabricate quotes and selectively edit video, then, when it's too late, they issue a half-hearted clarification.

What's that Mark Twain quote? A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes? The Fox News Channel slogan.

And Election 2012 gets more stupid by the day — and FNC is right in the middle of it.



The 2012 Social Security Trustees Report was issued the other day and — surprise — Social Security isn't bankrupt like everyone in the press and in the Republican Party (and Democratic Party in some cases) are telling you.

The most important take-away points from the 2012 Trustees Report will be that Social Security has a large and growing surplus; that without any Congressional action, Social Security will continue to pay benefits to America's eligible working families for decades; and that with modest legislated increases in revenue, it will continue to pay those benefits for the next century and beyond.

Atrios noted that Mark Warner (D-VA) is lying about the Trustees Report, suggesting that it says the fund "runs dry" by 2033.


After 2033, if nothing is done to increase revenue (Congress will do something), Social Security will still be able to pay out 75-80 percent of benefits — calculated based on 2033 money, which is actually more than people are being paid in benefits right now. And that's if NOTHING is done to increase revenue before then. In other words SOCIAL SECURITY IS RUNNING A SURPLUS AND EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE JUST FINE!!!11!!1

Don't believe the myths. And for heaven's sake, vote against anyone who wants to privatize the system.
