Good thing Romney's white or all those pictures would be racist.

Indeed, Romney is white. How do you think racism works?


Racism doesn't work, Him. It never works.


I think the takeaway message is that it doesn't work the way you think it works.

Appropriation of imagery in identical forms between whites and minority races can be racism for the minority races where it is not racism for the whites, but that is because in many effective terminological forms studying racism as a cultural phenomenon, racism is defined as a system applied against minority races in a myriad of (valid) forms.

I am not sure if this particular set of joker-ifications counts categorically.

the thing that struck me was how often romney agreed with what obama was doing in foreign policy. he explained it in detail, i guess hoping to make people think it was his idea, but it was existing policy. i sorta wished the president had said, just once, "i'm so glad mr. romney supports my policy".

Actually, I don't remember how he said it, but I remember him saying something along those lines to him at some point.

Romney isn't the only one with "binders full of women"

Also, Joss Whedon gives his endorsement

Hey, they actually caught and arrested someone for trying to vote twice! Granted, it was a Republican, but...

THAT was the some of the funniest stuff I've ever seen.

I gotta wonder, though, just how long all those dollar bills are gonna retain any value. Here in not too long they'll be so empty we could use them as a means for powered flight.

Are you one of those people that thinks the US is going to collapse any second now unless we become devotees of Ayn Rand?

Not fanatically, no. Especially since I've never read her work. I DO think that asking 'what's in it for me' is a reasonable and/or acceptable question to ask when going through life, but I won't look down on people who don't; it's your right to live however you want.

Would you consider 'a good feeling knowing I've done something right and/or helped another human being' be an acceptable answer to you or is it all MONEY MONEY MON-AY?

Well technically getting that "good feeling" from helping someone could be seen as the benefit that you are getting from a mutual deal. As such, your quality of life increases (because now you feel good), and so does the quality of life of whoever you helped.

In an interview, Ayn Rand said that she wasn't against giving your life so that your spouse might survive, but was against giving your life so that your neighbor's spouse survives while their own spouse does nothing. Sounds like decent-ish common sense, look out for your own before going and sacrificing yourself first.

I have no problem with doing volunteer work, but I like MONEY MONEY MON-AY too.

Although I also don't believe the US is on the verge of collapse, at least any time soon. Maybe in a century if they don't sort out some of their issues, many of which aren't really economics-related.

Although this may be the alcohol talking, so feel free to disregard the above.

I'd say we're closer to a moral collapse than an economic one.
