I got an email from Obama yesterday, and the subject was "Forward this"

I didn't even read the email, I just could not resist simply forwarding it to my sister, without comment. She sent me an email about how it's different in Indiana, and then related an anecdote that she had told my Nephew to educate him.

Feel free to poke the holes, we'll summarize.

Mitt Romney showed us in the debate that he is going try to to grab as many of the voters in the middle by lying about who he will favor with his tax policies. Some of them have been outright lies - lying about the $5 Trillion dollar tax cut coming from an across the board 20% rate decrease that he has mentioned several times in the past.

But a more important strategy is going to be to be truthful but deceptive. He will talk about eliminating loopholes and deductions - things that the average uneducated voter hears and thinks - "OK, those are things that help the rich and I don't get to use".

Another deception - the cap on personal deductions....

I watched 60 minutes the other night, teased by a story about a story about a guy climbing the face of Half Dome with no safety ropes. Watching that guy climb scared me half to death, but the enduring emotion after the whole show was bitter anger.

In addition to the free climbing story, was a piece on House Majority Leader Eric Cantor.

A lot of energy is spent on this board discussing voter irregularities driven by GOP operatives. Florida 2000, Ohio 2004, new laws requiring government issued ID's in order to vote, etc...

In San Francisco, our Democratic Mayor is doing his voter fraud the old fashioned way.

Update: Of course FOX has jumped on this

Ron Paul's world

by murphstahoe

So let me get this straight, Wolf Blitzer put a perfect hypothetical into Ron Paul's lap and Ron stayed right on course. If a young man decides he is healthy enough that he doesn't need health insurance, and something bad happens, sucks to be him. He should have the freedom to screw up.

Now if only there were an example in the US we could refer to...

The guy made a bunch of firebrand speeches, and he had some good points. He got on TV a lot because of it, and pushed hard on his opponents.

However, this isn't the first time he did something stupid that hurt his credibility.

Fellow Patriots -

In order to further our mission we must make sure to get the word out about the high values that we hold dear. One of the great American traditions, dating back to the shot heard round the world in Concord New Hampshire, is the time honored "Letter to the Editor". It is up to you - Joe Tea Partier - to get the world our in the finer newspapers (meaning newspapers outside of the "Lamestream Media") by writing letters for submission. This may be difficult, fortunately we have instructions for you to follow.

"Obama was supposed to help us"

by murphstahoe

This diary has taken me a few days to sort out in my brain and it's still hard to write. There are so many angles and it's also just a bit depressing.

The State of California is the site of two pretty contentious and very important races. First, the race for Governor between former Governor Jerry Brown and Ebay Billionaire Meg Whitman. Second, the race for US Senate between Senator Barbara Boxer and former HP CEO Carly Fiorina. Whitman and Fiorina have poured millions - one hundred plus million in Whitman's case - to beat our excellent Democratic Candidates. California's Democrats are cobbling together small contributions to fight back against the millionaires.

So what is the San Francisco Democratic Party doing with its coffers in this key election cycle? Spending tens of thousands of dollars to defeat a Democrat in a local Supervisor race.

The Bicycle Taliban

by murphstahoe

This is a short diary, because sometimes a picture is worth 1000 words.

The Bicycle Taliban - a bunch of "Extermeists" have invaded Santa Rosa California. The Tea Party, Car Party, Median Party, I dunno - some party type people are going to save us from these cretins.

PG&E is investigating and the NTSB has flown the gas pipe that ruptured and instigated the San Bruno California fire that killed 4 and wounded many others, with others missing, and left 38 houses destroyed.

They need not bother. A New York man has figured it all out.

Hello -

My name is John Murphy, and I am trying to get a pedestrian plaza into a small neighborhood in San Francisco called Noe Valley. Noe Valley is a nice quiet San Francisco neighborhood, with more children than typical for SF, and a nice commercial main street. The Merchants association cooked up an idea to put a pedestrian plaza in the center of the business district. Who knew that this would result in teabagging tomfoolery in the land of Nancy Pelosi.
