Hardball: McCaskill Fights For Missouri And Her Senate Seat

Knowledge IS Power. Actions Do Speak Louder Than Words.

With these thoughts in mind, I offer the following for your thoughtful consideration:
The Congressional voting record of one Rep. Todd "legitimate rape" Akin (R. MO):
1.) Akin voted *Against* the child nutrition program.
2.) Akin voted *Against* creating a national sex-offender registry.
3.) Akin voted *Against* creating The Center For Missing And Exploited Children.

I mention these facts as evidence that - as Akin's own words have revealed - not only is he unapologetic and militantly-ignorant regarding topics such as: human biology; human reproduction and the definition of (let alone care about/believe in the trauma, violation and devastation of) "rape".  A review of his Congressional voting record indicates he clearly has a congenital callousness regarding high-priority  issues such as the health, well-being and safety of America's children.

F.Y.I.  All of those GOP politicians and groups that were (at the least) calling for him to withdraw from the race or (at the most) hinting about lynching the man... are now back to supporting his attempt to take Senator Claire McCaskill's (D. MO) seat. (Yuck!)

Mike Rowe's (From The Discovery Channel's "Dirty Jobs") Dirtiest Job, Ever!

Mike Rowe, the congenial host of The Discovery Channel's "Dirty Jobs", has now performed his absolute Dirtiest Job, ever...

Mike stood on the stage with GOP Presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, in Ohio and talked to the working-class audience about the great value of the millions of working-class people across our nation; about providing better job-training/skill-training and about providing desperately-needed job opportunities.

Now, Rowe didn't come out and endorse Romney word-for-word, per-se.

But, Mike did say all the sorts of things that elitist, multimillionaire, "Let Detroit die..." Mitt Romney has repeatedly proven himself to be physically-incapable of saying... Let alone saying in anything resembling a sincere and believable fashion.

Funny thing is... Everything Mike spoke about, President Barack Obama has already spoken of, passionately, countless times.

Like when the President was presenting his Jobs Bills before Congress and asking for their swift approval.

Yet, each and every time, Congressional Republicans ganged up and - intentionally - blocked them from being passed into Law.

*What ever happened to "Jobs! Jobs! Jobs!", Republicans?  Oh? Whaddya mean that you, "... only meant you'd work for more "Jobs! Jobs! Jobs!" if and when Obama was no longer President?...  Gee, What A**holes!)

P.S. ~ The GOP members of Congress also Killed - they did  not delay nor filibuster - but K-I-L-L-E-D (as in It's D-E-A-D) the one recent Veterans' Jobs Bill that was specifically written to assist America's men and women who were returning from war to get jobs once they were home.

Shame on you, Mike Rowe.

And, now, more than ever... Shame on You, Congressional Republicans!

Secret (and Independently Verified) Video Reveals The Real Mitt Romney. Yikes!

Mitt Romney (responding to a question from the audience):

"There are 47% of people who will vote for the President... who are dependent upon government... who believe they are victims and that government has a responsibility to care for them... who believe they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it... And that's an entitlement..."

The above is an excerpt from a video recently obtained by Mother Jones Magazine.
The words came directly from the mouth of Mitt Romney.
The video and its contents have been independently confirmed and verified as, indeed, being GOP Presidential nominee Mitt Romney speaking candidly at one of his exclusive, private fundraising functions.

Mitt Romney: I'm happy to say, "You, sir, are in serious T-R-O-U-B-L-E...".

Huge Victories Against GOP-Led Voter Suppression In Texas, Florida, Ohio

Did You Know...?
Over this past year, Republican-controlled legislatures of several key/swing states passed sweeping changes to how voting/voting registration is carried out in those states and which would have stripped untold thousands of Americans of their right to vote or to have their vote counted in the 2012 Presidential election.

Pretending to be patriotic, they all claimed said changes were an absolute necessity "to prevent voter fraud" in November.  Sounds noble enough, right?

Only until you learn one simple fact: Actual cases of voter fraud are extremely rare.

Renders their claims unfounded and their sweeping changes utterly unnecessary.  End of story, right?

No. Not if you happen to be a sane, rational and ethical person who looks at which groups of Americans' right to vote this suddenly urgent legislation would take away...

The answer is: Hundreds of thousands of Americans.  And, more specifically: A disproportionate number of whom are African-American.  And, all of whom were historically known to vote Democrat.

Got Actual Voter Fraud?  As I said, "No."  It just doesn't happen.

Got Several Cases Of Electoral Fraud Carried Out By GOP Legislatures/Leaders/Governors?  Hells, yes!

Thankfully, several non-partisan, impartial Federal courts have seen clear through the flag-waving of these Republicans to the utterly unconscionable treachery behind their sweeping changes, slamming their gavels down on the GOP-led incidents of blatant voter suppression in Texas, Florida and Ohio.


*And, still... Remain vigilant, friends.
