Mildred Purse Says Romney Fails Miserably as a Liar

Daily Kos: Romney Campaign Lies Again: "The GM Bailout was Mitt's Idea": "Romney wrote this in the New York Times: "If General Motors, Ford and Chrysler get the bailout that their chief executives asked for yesterday, you can kiss the American automotive industry goodbye. It won’t go overnight, but its demise will be virtually guaranteed.""

Mitt, the above is what you wrote before the auto bailout. Now your resident fib master Mr. Fehrnstrom says the bailout was your idea. You need a proper Fib Coach, Mitt. Loyalty is what did Nixon in. Break your umbilical bond with this Fehrnstrom fellow. Hire an experienced Big Lie Technician. You can't win with truth, Mitt. But dumb lies won't work either. Have you ever tasted the President's mince pie? For lies like the one you and Fehnstrom cooked up, this you might  get a hefty slice sooner than later.

Romney=Risk

Re-elect the President

Romney is tied to Karl Rove and the Koch Brothers



Mitt Romney is tied to Rove and the Koch Brothers 
in addition to Bork and Bolton
Does Mitt Romney want to be tied to Karl Rove
the man who virtually made George W. Bush
and who is therefore an accessory after the fact of
the most disastrous administration in American history
Does Romney want to be associated with the Kochs
One glance at the Koch products demonstrates
why they are the most Right Wing folk of all
All of their products resonate with the very worst
aspects of an economy that places profit above people
They depend on the sprawl economy for their billions
The answer of course is that Mr. Romney is glad to be
associated with all the people named here
Which would be fine if you were not a member of
the 99 percent who do not benefit when Rove
and the Kochs achieve their objectives
Because of these clear and transparent associations
Romney=Risk
And behind him lurks 
even worse risk for us all

The solution is the re-election of the President
and the installation of sane Democratic majorities
in all offices everywhere

Romney is surrounded by neo-cons who counsel war

ShortFormContent at Blogger: Twelve Reasons Romney is Going Down as We Speak:

'via Blog this'

Romney is surrounded by neo-cons
Bolton and McCain no doubt approve
Their aim is to continue the devastatingly bad
Practice of deploying undrafted troops
To fight losing ground wars
At a time when ground wars have become obsolete
By now I must assume the that not only our
Beleaguered troops but the bulk of the electorate
Is stressed at the thought that an iffy person 
With no foreign policy
Under his belt
Would continue the same old obsolete method
Advocated by McCain and Bolton and Bush
Romney is now embraced by Karl Rove and the Koch Brothers
Because he will be their willing tool
We need more oil wars they will say 
And when Romney looks around him to 
Find someone who will tell him the truth
He will look in vain
Romney is risk
Romney=Risk
Romney and risk are one.

Charles Sanders Peirce: Logic=Semiotic [Quote]


CP 2.227 (c. 1897):

"Logic, in its general sense, is, as I believe I have shown, only another name for semiotic (σημειωτικη), the quasi-necessary, or formal, doctrine of signs. By describing the doctrine as ‘quasi-necessary,’ or formal, I mean that we observe the characters of such signs as we know, and from such an observation, by a process which I will not object to naming Abstraction, we are led to statements, eminently fallible, and therefore in one sense by no means necessary, as to what must be the characters of all signs used by a ‘scientific’ intelligence, that is to say, by an intelligence capable of learning by experience. As to that process of abstraction, it is itself a sort of observation. The faculty which I call abstractive observation is one which ordinary people perfectly recognize, but for which the theories of philosophers sometimes hardly leave room. It is a familiar experience to every human being to wish for something quite beyond his present means, and to follow that wish by the question, ‘Should I wish for that thing just the same, if I had ample means to gratify it?’ To answer that question, he searches his heart, and in doing so makes what I term an abstractive observation. He makes in his imagination a sort of skeleton diagram, or outline sketch, of himself, considers what modifications the hypothetical state of things would require to be made in that picture, and then examines it, that is, observes what he has imagined, to see whether the same ardent desire is there to be discerned. By such a process, which is at bottom very much like mathematical reasoning, we can reach conclusions as to what would be true of signs in all cases, so long as the intelligence using them was scientific. The modes of thought of a God, who should possess an intuitive omniscience superseding reason, are put out of the question. Now the whole process of development among the community of students of those formulations by abstractive observation and reasoning of the truths which must hold good of all signs used by a scientific intelligence is an observational science, like any other positive science, notwithstanding its strong contrast to all the special sciences which arises from its aiming to find out what must be and not merely what is in the actual world."
