Is CNN For Real?

CNN just posted on their website an article titled “Is Obama ‘The Wrong Kind Of Christian“.  Now you can read this crap for yourself, but it makes me wonder what world I am living in.

We have one candidate who tells us that he won’t impose his religious views on the people, and then another candidate who tells us that his faith leads him to every decision.  Romney is so devout that he has never had a sip of alcohol or coffee, was a pastor in the church for ten years, went on a mission to spread the ‘Book of Mormon’ to get out of serving in Vietnam, gives millions of dollars a year to the church, and yet somehow his religion has become taboo to speak about.

I have to wonder if Mitt Romney’s middle name was Hussein, or if his skin was a little darker that he might be getting a few more questions about being so involved in his faith?  Next time you hear Mitt Romney decry the outrage of gay marriage based on his beliefs and the beliefs of “the creator”, maybe you should read up on what else he believes in. If the media wants to have this debate, let’s have it.  I want the moderator tonight to ask if Mitt is wearing his magic underwear?

Women in Mitt Romney’s America

In Mitt Romney’s America, women are able to work as long as they accept less pay for the same job. However, that woman better be able to get home and have dinner on the table by 5:00 PM. Mitt will not stand for a woman not having dinner on the table when her man walks in the door!
I can’t believe in 2012 a candidate for President goes on TV in a debate and says this crap. Let alone insulting every single parent over and over again while standing on the stage with THE PRESIDENT who is the product of a single parent household.

It also takes some guts for Romney to keep talking about his father being an immigrant from Mexico in answering the question on immigration.  Romney’s grandfather went to Mexico to avoid US law that banned polygamy.  That is why George Romney (Mitt’s father) was born in Mexico.  Since his dad was born to two US citizens, he was in fact an American citizen at birth.

Leave Susan G. Komen Foundation On The Sideline

A few months ago I wrote a long post describing the problems with the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. This was in response to the outcry over the foundation pulling funding from Planned Parenthood to align with its right wing agenda.
After a public backlash, Komen reinstated the funding to Planned Parenthood. One big thing did not change. While they were cutting funds to help with early detection, they were also stopping funding for stem cell research. This again was to align with with the religious right of American politics. Their position on stem cell research has not changed.

As we promote breast cancer awareness this month, please consider supporting other charities and foundations that put a women’s health and finding a cure to a disease that hurts so many ahead of its political ideology. Some things should not be political and this is one of them. People of all political parties, races, religions, and social standing contract this disease and we need charities and government to support the best research.
