I'm so sick of politics. I'm sick of people rudely "demanding" you hear their opinion or literally demanding you state yours, but you have to be polite so their feelings don't get hurt. They're already physically fired up in anger over all this political nonsense.

I'd honestly rather hear someone talk religion over this crap.

If some of these people weren't paying customers or coworkers I would rudely walk away with my fingers in my ears. But they'll just assume I'm not taking their side, but I don't want to listen to either side.

Maybe I can come up with some sort of game or mind game just to amuse myself. Uggh....

</rant>

One day I WILL live in my own lack of noise bubble as do they with their noise. I WILL find bliss in ignorance.

One year before Mitt Romney began working on the Bain & Company project to rebuild “Monsanto” and cast their new image and focus on agriculture biotechnology, Congress passed a bill banning PCB (polychlorinated biphenyl), an odorless, tasteless, clear liquid known to cause cancer that was the “bread and butter” of Monsanto’s profits. Monsanto was already branded and plagued with the label of having created the “Agent Orange” contaminated dioxins used in Vietnam.

Romney’s first project with Bain in 1977: Help propel Monsanto Alex Jones&#039; Infowars: There&#039;s a war on for your mind!

How Mitt Romney and Bain Helped Grow Monsanto Into a Biotech Giant

If Romney is elected, this bête noire of environmentalists will have a very old friend in a very high place.

Where is this guy when we need him?

This doesn't sound like what we hear from Democrats nowadays....
The "Royalists" are now in full control.

I consume mainstream media, especially watch TV, to spend time with my wife rather than to be informed or entertained and aside from reruns of Star Trek 10 minutes worth of media / day is normally about my limit.

The other night watching TV coverage of the debate, specifically during commercials during the debate, I wondered aloud "Who are these people?" in reference to the audience targeted by advertisers, to which my wife replied something like, "Face it. Life has passed us by."

It suddenly dawned on me that Gens X, Y & Z and hangers-on from my (Boomer) generation, especially the ones espousing the views of the Occupy movement (as myriad as those views seem to be), are making the same mistake we did in the '60's blaming the Man and his Establishment. It wasn't the Man who needed to change, since he was gone soon enough, but us: in less than a generation lo-and-behold We R the Establishment and the same social and political issues we vowed to resolve are still with us.

In my dotage now part of the much loathed class that thinks the lazy need a kick in the pants, wastes energy via every bit of labour saving technology available, eats GMO food without a care and apparently pays 70% of the taxes don't tell me I have to change. I can't, but mainly I won't be doing it much longer (on a geological time scale ). It's the ones doing the complaining who need to work on themselves since to a large extent they are already running the show, and soon enough will have no one to blame but themselves (as their kids will remind them).

Based on the errors that my generation made, that turned us into capitalist exploiters of the downtrodden, first stop consuming (unsubstantiated ideas as much as products) even if this means above all getting an education (to be able to determine what is fact and what is self-serving fiction) and giving up some of the luxuries us old guys feel entitled to, including private motorized vehicles, mobile communications technology, big screen TVs (1000 channels & little on except Establishment brainwashing after all) washing machines & clothes driers, 8 bladed razors, air conditioning, etc., etc. If you feel a person who earns a buck is less entitled to it than one who does not, give >> 50% of your income to government to distribute to the more deserving. For my part I promise to do my darnedest to ensure there will be little left of my wealth when the time comes, so that my kids are in no danger of inheriting it and turning into me without the considerable effort it took me to turn into me. Finally vote as you see fit, with your wallet as well as during elections, rather than protesting about how other people vote.

This insight was reinforced recently when I watched 3 cars in front of me driven by Gen Y/Z'ers trying to change lanes on the highway: 2 trying to merge and 1 trying to get to the off ramp come hell, high water or other drivers, none showing any situation awareness. Somehow they managed to avoid a pileup. Technology--social political--may change rapidly but human nature remains mired in the stone age.

The question is do you want your future tax bill going to Wall Street or Sesame Street?

Romney is Wall Street personified, a corporation and a person. As a wearer of magic underwear one can easily see why he may like the Big Bird and feels he must go.

The issue on taxes is not about the basic rate. It's about the code. The corporate tax code. Designed and delivered by those who create these bitter arguments about who will foot the public bill. Every middle class and poor person would accept a flat tax in a heartbeat. Why would Romney and the elite never see this, a rate that would guarantee all pay the same, they prefer the code, and the lie.

People are waking up. They are sick of sacrificing their lives to maintain the elite class, their trillion dollar bailouts, their belief that they are higher, more godly, too big to fail, and above free enterprise and competition. Free enterprise is free enterprise. It's not what the Bush's and Paulson's and the Romney's and these out of tough billionaires and rightist elite would have you believe. And they work so very hard at it.

Peopole are waking up. They are leaving their televisions in the past. WTFU
