Karl Rove  American Crossroads Spin GOP Election Losses

Karl Rove will survive

Nov 08, 2012 Politics

Karl will survive, but it is interesting to see him dancing around. I don't think he will lose too much because there isn't anyone on a national level on that side to displace him. The GOP will take a look at the issues they can bend on to attract the minority voter. Look for Republicans to go after Hipancs very aggressively. They will go where they have the most in common; Hispanics are very religious. A study conducted by the Pew Hispanic Center and the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life found Hispanics who expressed a religious preference to be overwhelming Catholic... "Acc...

Mitt Romney's 47 percent comment

I am Mitt Romney’s 47%

Oct 23, 2012 General Rant

"There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it -- that that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what. ... These are people who pay no income tax. ... [M]y job is not to worry about those people. I'll never c...

21st Century American Dream

Oct 18, 2012 Breaking It Down

Let me break this down for you, kids… The latest version of the American Dream is currently being revised. Thanks for playing! The American Dream is a complex concept that has been many things to a lot of different types of people over the years. To the hippie counter-culture cynic it’s a red white and blue sales pitch with a cold plastic heart, a thing to be scorned and avoided at all costs; like soap, water and work. Everything will be fine if we give the world a big hug and a bong hit. To a free market capitalist it’s a modern day version of an 1881 episode of &ld...

Meme Ponds & Winning Elections

Oct 16, 2012 News

Let me break this down for you… In the first debate Mitt Romney dropped a brick in the big pond. America both hates and loves politics like it loves and hates its winners. In order to be a winner in politics in America you need to understand media and how it connects to the masses of people you need to reach and influence. These masses of people are divided into groups; these groups are connected by media like newspapers, radio, television, Internet and variations of emerging technologies. The 21st Century media outlet has evolved into a conduit for a flavored message feeding a ...

She is targeted by a religious group of Pakistani Taliban in the Swat Valley, a mountainous area known mostly as a vacation destination for many Pakistani Going forward it will be remembered for something else.

The importance of being older

Oct 10, 2012 Breaking It Down

Let me break this down for you... Getting older puts things in a different perspective. I realized the other day that I do not feel like I have a generation. Too young to be a Baby Boomer or a member of the Greatest Generation I'm too old for Generation X Y or Z. My generation is so lame we didn’t even get a name. If we did I missed the memo. We were the lost generation, the last one to grow into adults before the information age dawned; we have one foot in the black & white past and the other on a digital banana peel. We’ve experienced free television with 3 channels...

I Like These The Most

At least for right now… these memes are like little pieces of myself. It seems more than a little narcissistic to have favorite parts of yourself. But if you insist... these are my favorite parts... right now. I am a fickle master.
