The Mitt Said To Have "Won" The Debate Is a Predatory Jackal and Pathological Liar

Like everyone else I have been trying to make sense of things I have seen Mitt's bump Before the first debate came noxious GOP voter suppression efforts and  noxious GOP lying ads  funded by deluded billionaires who owe their wealth to the President they hate These efforts give four percent off the poll gap to Mitt Given the six point gap Obama needs just to squeak by we are now under threatI did not see it that way during the debate I saw Mitt as a predatory jackal rudely advancing unrestrained lie after unrestrained bald-faced lie  But from the subsequent wailing wall at MSNBC to dissembling Right Wing glee the verdict was Mitt won Now I know whyEnough Americans believed a man they met only onceMitt's bald-faced lies were truth to themThey had never known different It takes little effort to establish the three points needed to re-achieve an Obama edge POINT ONE Reassert the portrait of Mitt set forth before the debate It's only part of what is true about Mitt Reveal MOR…

Not Judging Is The Hardest Thing of All (Amor Fati) - A Quatrain

The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community is spot on Cap Tip Andrew

The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community | Living Economies Forum: "The Great Turning makes the case that we humans are a choice making species that at this defining moment faces both the opportunity and the imperative to choose our future as a conscious collective act.

A convergence of climate change, peak oil, and the financial instability inherent in an unbalanced global trading system will bring an unraveling of the corporate-led global economy and a dramatic restructuring of every aspect of modern life.

We cannot avoid the unraveling. We can, however, turn a potentially terminal crisis into an epic opportunity to bring forth a new era of Earth Community grounded in the life-affirming cultural values shared by most all the world’s people and eloquently articulated in the Earth Charter."
