Mitt Romney, On 60 Minutes, Cites Emergency Room As Health Care Option For Uninsured

Response: When I think about Mitt Romney the following comes to mind: "Ignorance will never end. Even those with money can’t buy SENSE!!" Author: Curmilus Dancy II The Political Agitator

WASHINGTON — Downplaying the need for the government to ensure that every person has health insurance, Mitt Romney on Sunday suggested that emergency room care suffices as a substitute for the uninsured.

"Well, we do provide care for people who don’t have insurance," he said in an interview with Scott Pelley of CBS’s "60 Minutes" that aired Sunday night. "If someone has a heart attack, they don’t sit in their apartment and die. We pick them up in an ambulance, and take them to the hospital, and give them care. And different states have different ways of providing for that care." (More)

Goodbye to All That: Reflections of a GOP Operative Who Left the Cult – Truthout

Response: This was September 11, 2011 one year ago. Well!

1. The GOP cares solely and exclusively about its rich contributors. The party has built a whole catechism on the protection and further enrichment of America’s plutocracy. Their caterwauling about deficit and debt is so much eyewash to con the public. Whatever else President Obama has accomplished (and many of his purported accomplishments are highly suspect), his $4-trillion deficit reduction package did perform the useful service of smoking out Republican hypocrisy. The GOP refused, because it could not abide so much as a one-tenth of one percent increase on the tax rates of the Walton family or the Koch brothers, much less a repeal of the carried interest rule that permits billionaire hedge fund managers to pay income tax at a lower effective rate than cops or nurses. Republicans finally settled on a deal that had far less deficit reduction – and even less spending reduction! – than Obama’s offer, because of their iron resolution to protect at all costs our society’s overclass.

In Response To Mitt Romney And The 47% Do You Know If You Are Reading This He Was Talking About You, Your Family & Friends?

Anthony Clark I didn’t and don’t think most Americans understood what he was talking about when he said middle class. Lot’s of people whose lives have improved and think they are middle class by federal definition fall in that 47% Mitt was talking about. I think that is clear, now!

Dead Voters – Fraudulent Claims – Desperation to Disenfranchise Voters in NC

Response: “Know that being ignant is not always a bad thing, however it is a bad thing when you don’t do anything about it especially when you are trying to discredit others. Know what you are talking about when you open your mouth so you will not make a damn fool out of yourself.” Curmilus Dancy II Tuesday April 3, 2012

Veronica Degraffenreid, elections liason for the North Carolina State Board of Elections, talks with Rachel Maddow about the burden on the election boards in her state to address the frivolous cliams of dead voters on the rolls by a tea party group called the Voter Integrity Project.

To date, neither the state nor any of the county boards have found any instances of anyone voting who should not have. (More)

How Voter ID Laws Are Being Used to Disenfranchise Minorities and the Poor

First, let’s call it what it is. The burgeoning battles over state redistricting and voter ID laws — and the larger fight over a key part of the Voting Rights Act itself — are all cynical expressions of the concerns many conservatives (of both parties) have about the future of the American electorate. The Republican lawmakers who are leading the fight for the restrictive legislation say they are doing so in the name of stopping election fraud — and, really, who’s in favor of election fraud? But the larger purpose and effect of the laws is to disenfranchise Hispanic voters, other minorities, and the poor — most of whom, let’s also be clear, vote for Democrats. (More)

Watching Romney on 60 Minutes led me to remember the things he was lying about…–Under The LobsterScope

Did you hear Romney say he was going to cut taxes on Middle America? Go you remember the other day when he said the income rate of Middle America started at $200,000.00 a year in annual income… and averaged a quarter of a million dollars. All at once I was not part of Middle America any more. Neither were ALL of the people I know and deal with every day in West Virginia.

I hope most people realize the bullshit Romney is bubbling over with. We have the possibility of having the worst president in history. Let’s avoid that situation by not voting for him. (More)

Republican Staffers Charged With 36 Counts of Election Fraud

Response: So damn look at where the Election Fraud is coming from. But damn Ignant Racist White Folks and Safe Negroes talking about it is the Democratic Party who have a problem with Voter ID and we are better than that. Well again it is not about voter fraud for us but about trying to keep some Black folks from voting.

It turns out that the Republican Party’s obsession with voter fraud may be yet another case of projection. Four former staffers for resigned House Rep. Thaddeus McCotter have been charged with 36 counts of misdemeanor and felony election fraud. Yesterday one of those staffers, Lorianne O’Brady, pled not guilty to five misdemeanor counts of  submitting fraudulent signatures on a ballot petition. O’Brady is the last of the four staffers to be arraigned; the other three, Don Yowchuang, Mary Melissa Turnbull, and Paul Seewald, were arraigned on similar charges on August 10th. (More)

Black Women Fight Voter-ID Laws in DC – The Root

Response: I have a button that reads: This is a Man’s World Unless Women Don’t Vote. As always the Black woman carrying her load.

During this weekend’s Congressional Black Caucus festivities in Washington, D.C., black women gathered from states like Ohio to fight voter suppression. Instead of waiting for someone else to make sure they were registered and possessed the proper ID to vote in November, according to the Associated Press, these women took to the streets to register one another and make sure that 2012 will see a repeat of high black female voter participation numbers — they were the largest voting group in 2008.

Voter Harassment, Circa 2012 – The New York Times

Response: Folks it is all about Race and anyone who thinks otherwise are just ignant to the facts that exits. They are intimidated by us but yet they want to be the intimidators. I say don’t allow nothing and no one turn you around. Stand!

This is how voter intimidation worked in 1966: White teenagers in Americus, Ga., harassed black citizens in line to vote, and the police refused to intervene. Black plantation workers in Mississippi had to vote in plantation stores, overseen by their bosses. Black voters in Choctaw County, Ala., had to hand their ballots directly to white election officials for inspection.

This is how it works today: In an ostensible hunt for voter fraud, a Tea Party group, True the Vote, descends on a largely minority precinct and combs the registration records for the slightest misspelling or address error. It uses this information to challenge voters at the polls, and though almost every challenge is baseless, the arguments and delays frustrate those in line and reduce turnout. (More)

Politics: It is good to have fun, play games and things that are dear to us but at certain points in time we must put the playing aside (Election Year)

It is good to have fun, play games and things that are dear to us but at certain points in time we must put the playing aside and be involved in what is going on around us. (Election Year)

I am going to use email, Facebook, Twitter and other to help educate folks about what is going on around them. Everything is political. Facebook and Twitter is free so why not use it to help make a difference by being a voice and sharing with others good and right information. If you don’t know but receive emails, have Facebook and Twitter friends who share good and right information then you need to share it with your friends because they may never see this information. When you do this Black folks can get the good and right information so they can make informed decisions when they vote.

I don’t have time to play right now. I don’t care when your birthday and other but only concerned about who will be put in office in November to represent us. Don’t send me nothing that ain’t about Politics. Actually I don’t play when I get on the internet and will continue to use this free way of blogging, emailing, Facebooking and Twittering.

In the Black community we have limited to resources such as radio and tv talk shows but we spend countless hours on the internet so I am challenging you to spend atleast half of your time sharing good and right information at all times but especially up until upcoming General Election November 2012. It is an absolutely must that we re-elect Barack Obama and elect every single Democrat on the Ballot.

Justice Clarence Thomas criticizes law school rankings – The Grio

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is not a fan of law school rankings.

The Yale law school graduate told University of Florida law students Friday that judging law school graduates by where they graduated from and their upbringing is like the discrimination that minorities and women have fought in the past. (More)

Voters: Do You Know Pinetops, Macclesfield, Some of Tarboro and Some of Rocky Mount You Are In The 13th Congressional District, Congressman G.K. Butterfield Is Not Your Representative, We Must Vote For Charles Malone

If you live in Pinetops, Macclesfield, some of Tarboro and some of Rocky Mount we live in a newly created District that was drawn up for the Primary Elections. The Republicans took us out of Congressman G.K. Butterfield’s district and created a new one.

We must vote for Charles Malone the Democratic Candidate in this new district in the upcoming November Election. You probably voted for him during the primary but haven’t really noticed that Butterfield no longer represents us. However he will continue to be my Congressman as long as he stays in office along with Charles Malone.

Chris Matthews tells Bill Maher panel: Mitt Romney is running a ‘racist’ campaign

Response: Chris Matthews gets it. Hell yeah it is and always have been about RACE! Remember the good ole boys met the same day our President was elected and made a promise to themselves they were not going to support anything “our” current President that just happens to be “Black” was going to try to do.

Damn all “they” have been talking about is taking us back.

On Friday night’s episode of Real Time with Bill Maher, panelist Chris Matthews renewed his accusations against Republicans of racist campaigning, in a confrontation with right-wing radio host Roger Hedgecock

“There’s a gentleman’s agreement out there about covering up this racist game that your side has been playing this whole campaign,” Matthews told Hedgecock. “Why do you talk about welfare? Why does Newt [Gingrich] talk about the ‘food stamp president’? Why does it keep going to this old town again, this dog-whistle stuff.” (More)
