Executive Treason Films Presents: The Fall Guy starring General Carter Ham

Now playing on mainstream news outlets everywhere:

Brought to you by Executive Treason Films, it's the sordid tale of a General who took a dive for being ready and willing to give aid to fellow Americans in an embassy in Libya.

Favorite Quotes: Thomas Paine

"I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death. My own line of reasoning is to myself as straight and clear as a ray of light."

– Thomas Paine, "The American Crisis, No. I," Pennsylvania Journal, December 19, 1776; Writings 3:12

The Less Known Mitt

There's a Mitt Romney out there that has been occluded by political issues. As you watch the following clip, listen for the political issues.

Did you catch them? Here. Let me help. There are two important ones:

  1. Mitt Romney is a family man. Family comes first for him. Result matter but not at the expense of family.
  2. While governor of the very Liberal state of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney worked hard to decrease regulations.

Yes, yes, yes, I know that he endorsed and signed healthcare reform into law while governor and that it is the model upon which Obamacare is based. But! There is so much that's negative about him all over the internet that it is refreshing to find some conservatism during his tenure as governor. You need to decide which was the exception for Governor Romney: Conservatism or Liberalism.


Thanks to the Obama campaign, politics has gotten a bit smuttier, more petulant, and more childish; but here are a couple of parodies to lighten the mood:

Keep in mind, they're parodies!

Which Campaign Objectifies Women?

Are you going to be a first-time voter on the 6th of November? Are you a female? If so, President Obama has a message for you:

Are women that shallow, that self-centered, that idiotic that this kind of ad appeals to them? I can honestly say I do not know any woman who would be swayed or pleased by this condescending piece of smut masquerading as a campaign ad. In fact, all of the women I know would be deeply offended by this ad.

Even though I can't personally fathom it, you may like Obama, and that's fine; but do you really think this is the way he should attract new female voters; by objectifying them? I don't. Where is the outcry from women's rights groups? They're silent because they support Obama.

Wouldn't you prefer to be addressed like an adult? Wouldn't you prefer that politicians and others treat you like you have a brain and can use it? Of course you would because it's the truth!

The Romney campaign put out an ad addressing similar issues, but with a different tone and feel. Watch it here:

Which campaign ad is really talking to you like an adult? The condescending Obama ad or the fact checking Romney ad?

No matter what the spin doctors say, this election IS NOT about sex, birth control, gay marriage, or any other social agenda. It is about liberty. Yours and mine. Vote for the guy who hasn't put the nation in a tailspin. Vote for Romney!

Initial Analysis: Romney V Obama: The Economy

When I first started listening to this evening's debate at about 10 minutes past the hour (yes, I said, "listening." I'm not rich enough to have broadcast, cable, or satellite television.), it sounded like President Obama was deftly affirming Ron Paul supporters' worst fears: "Romney is just like me." However, having just seen the opening remarks on YouTube, I realize that those were just the President's opening remarks.

Apparently, this debate was set to be specifically about the economy. Romney made it clear that he understands the economy better than the President does.

Romney's wins: 10th amendment, Deficit Reduction, Limit Government intrusion into business, Reduce Regulation, Spending cuts through attrition, and Obama has had his chance but failed miserably.

BUT, because I was only able to listen when the debate was live, I was able to pick up on a couple of areas where Mr. Romney didn't do so good.

In particular, Romney said that he had no plans on reducing the federal governments role in education. I'm sorry Mitt supporters everywhere, but Ron Paul and Rick Perry were and are right. The US department of education needs to be shut down if only because it is an unconstitutional entity. The federal government needs to get out of the business of educating our children because it is little more than a mold maker.

In fact, nearly every issue in the debate tonight should be issues for the states themselves to address. The federal government, outside of some ground rule regulations, needs to get out of the way of the economy and let it do what it will, and I think Romney made that point.
