There may be pigs flying on Thursday

Why, you might be asking? Because apparently, Mitt Romney is going to "discuss his religion" on Thursday in AUSTIN, TEXAS (of all places) to "quiet" the religion question in his U.S. Presidential run. (Come on Clinton/Barak ticket!)

Yeah, right. He's going to talk about how America was founded on freedom of religion, that he believes in Jesus, and let's all get alone *million dollar grin* Don't you believe it. For those who might want to know what the hell he REALLY believes, here are links to old posts I've made about Mitt and the Mormons, Inc, [ 1 ] and [ 2 ]. And let's not forget that the leaders of that religion (of which I used to belong) tell the members: "It is wrong to criticize the leaders of the church. Even if the criticism is true." ~Dallin H. Oaks, one of the "General Authorities."

Also said by the Mormons: "the greatest threat to our way of life is intellectualism, feminism, and homosexuality." THREAT?! Yeah.

Happy Monday. I need donuts - just basic glazed. Maybe with chocolate. And wool socks for my toesies. (And for those curious, yes, the book is still going strong - 58K and going!)

Whoot on the continued word count!

I know you like music...and free music is even better...so...
here is are two playlists that I recently made available on my LJ if you are interested. Click Me! And Click Me!

The first one has a lengthy explanation, so I apologize in advance.

That's me... the thoughtful one. Actually I know I am not on your flist, so it would make sense that I link to the posts. :)

I would looooooooove to be in the audience on Thursday. Granted, it won't be much of a "discussion" as I'm sure any potential inflammatory and/or pointed questions about specifics of his faith will be nipped in the bud.

Mmm, doughnuts. I swear, there is nothing better on this earth than a hot, fresh Krispy Kreme original glazed. *eyes glaze over*

DONUTS. Also, is it hate our uterus time? Is that why I want to go skinny dipping in a vat of peanut oil, then dry off in chocolate chips?

And I'm amused that Gmail pulled up a sponsored link to DeseretBooks' publication of Mitt Romeny's "unusual story" of his life. I can sum it up: born rich, became richer, believes he'll be a god of his own planet one day. THE END.

YOU AND ME BOTH. And they said John Kerry was a privileged stiff? He ain't got NUTHIN in Romney. Plus, Romney's a weirdo asshole.

Jayzus, i know. I just...man.
I'm actually really kind of wigged that he might be in the running for president. And the damn democrats don't ever seem to be able to pull together enough to actually do *anything*...
Dear gods.
*shudders*

Just...please, please no. I hope this 'debate' or whatever the fuck it's going to be brings out a *lot* of press about his background and previous actions and just scares people off.

I don't know, the Democrats are leading (by a small margin, but I'll take it!) in all the polls here, so I'm feeling.... reservedly hopeful. *G*

That's good...i'll be hopeful, too.

If only Al Gore had challenged the Florida results...how different would things be right now, i wonder?

Romney and Guiliani are different branches of the same distorted tree, in my opinion. [shudder]

I lived under him while he was mayor; I faint with horror at what he'd do with the presidency.

Nation's mayor my ass.

Romney is a whole other world of fear.

Hmm, I'm going to not quite agree on Romney and Guiliani being similar. Guilini will at least come up with his own cockamamie ideas. Romney just does what the church leaders tell him to do, and has no unique thoughts of his own on ANYTHING.

I still don't want either of them in charge. At all.

The MIL was harping on me to "keep religion out of it" when talking about Mitt...Ummm, shouldn't we know what our candidates fundamentally believe? She voted for W and is thrashing around for someone to support in the next election. It sounds like she's laying mental groundwork to be for Romney *shudders*

Yay to 58K and going!

Okay, when you're talking about an atheist, or an agnostic, a Catholic vs. a Protestant, sure. But what if Huckabee was a Scientologist? You telling me she wouldn't care? Because Scientology is just a newer version, you know?

Feel free to send her my way for some educatin'. :D

I agree, but I made the Scientology comparison and she replied: "Being a Mormon is nothing like being a Scientologist." Sorry, Stoney, she doesn't want to know. She wouldn't vote for Tom Cruise, but she'd vote for Mitt Romney? I can't be sure on either count...

That Romney has the position he does in the polls is scary! I wish there'd be more thorough reporting on his relationship to the LDS because I think most people are looking at him and saying, "Oh, Christian," and then just buzzing on to something else.

Side note: I just bought 94% wool socks, have them on my tootsies, and after reading your email, I'm pretending I have snow outside my house, too, to warrant my socks. *G*

I couldn't agree with your comment more, by the way. It's just... WHAT? This just proves to me how well the Mormon PR machine is doing. NOOOOOOOOO!!!

Heeee, cute wool-clad toeses! *gives you a foot massage*

We both went out and bought boots, for lo, we did not have any, and that clearly can't continue in this state. Mine are probably way nicer than they have any right to be, but I have been assured that they will remain DRY and I'll still be able to drive in them, both of which seem key. Mr. Nous's are nice and also probably too nice, but seem very unassuming in comparison.

Also, he seems not to have the, "OMG, WE'RE SPENDING MONEY! *cowers*" reaction that I have. He's just like, "great, these seem like they'll last for a good long while, *pays and wears out of store*" whereas I'm clutching mine to my chest and making small eep-ing noises. o_o

*PASSES OUT* A foot massage is the way to my HEART, woman.

:O He must be very confident with the massive non-NYC rent leaving his pocket no more and is all happy about spending money on things not rent-related, YAY. But I'm like you and would be all frugal and prudent and worried and eeping, too. Follow his lead! Then double check the savings account. Hee!<3

I give the best foot massages in the world!

Haha, totally. The boots do seem like they'll last for a while, though, so that's helpful to tell my eep-ing self. We'll see if I can convince myself to wear them out of the house tomorrow (usually it takes, like, a few days before I'll take out anything brand-new and wear it with impunity).

You know, I've been talking in the Teacher's Lounge at school about the coming election, and I remember reading your posts about Mitt Romney. I remember them only enough, though, to say how I'm so NOT voting for him. He's apparently the front runner in the race down here in *cough*centralflorida*cough* and I don't like it.

so when the teachers ask me about him, why I don't like him, I have all this info, but CAN'T REMEMBER!! So, thank you for reposting a link to that, so I can freshen up and enlighten some others. Whew.

*luvs*

You bet! Hopefully *knocks on wood* I'll have a published book before the election next year that will help keep him out of office. :D *has lofty ambitions*

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
