    especially the ones in the front row, I would have stood behind Romney, arms crossed and middle fingers visibly extended.

    Well, I'd have been tempted to. Being a radio ham since the days when you had to know Morse code to get a license, maybe I would have just stood in the front row blinking "BULLSHIT" or "OBAMA" in Morse.

    Just before I got my walking papers, no doubt.

    You and I are going to spend our sunset years telling our children's children what it was once like in America when 25% of the population was batshit insane.

      Corporations in the U.S. have institutionalized the "worker" to his/her relegated "place."  A feudal system for the modern day.  You think I'm exaggerating?  99 v 1.  Yeah.  This stuff really did happen.  It's not our imaginations.

      Romney's whole business was about maximizing debt, extracting cash, cutting head counts, skimping on capital spending, outsourcing production, and dressing up the deal for the earliest, highest-profit exit possible. -- David Stockman.
