Mitt Romney parties aboard a yacht called Cracker Bay that flies the Cayman Islands flag.

Gov. Mitt Romney's campaign toasted its top donors Wednesday aboard a 150-foot yacht flying the flag of the Cayman Islands.

The exclusive event, hosted by a Florida developer on his yacht "Cracker Bay," was one of a dozen exclusive events meant to nurture those who have raised more than $1 million for Romney's bid.

"I think it's ironic they do this aboard a yacht that doesn't even pay its taxes," said a woman who lives aboard a much smaller boat moored at the St. Petersburg Municipal Marina.

"They can call themselves the Tea Party, they can call themselves conservatives, but we should call them what they really are. The American Taliban. The American Taliban cannot survive if Dorothy Cooper is allowed to vote"

Season finale can be viewed here: http://free-watch-series.com/?p=18216

PLEASE NOTE: When watching free episode you may confront a series of pop-ups at first, disregard them. Also, if you pause the episode a the screen becomes an ad, to disregard the ad just press PLAY button again, not the ad.

Also, if you haven't seen the first 9 episodes some of the premise might confuse you, such as the NSA whistleblower story, the deleted voicemail, the entire side show love story, the death threats, phone hackings, & Will being high on the air during the Bin Laden raid news cast in one previous episode (he ate 2 pot cookies at a party then had to rush to studio because of late breaking Bin Laden dead news). But all in all you will recognize all the news stories from this episode.

Have You Seen THIS Supposed Video Of Romney??

Because of it being audio only it hasn't been confirmed, but it sure sounds like him.

At Bain, Romney Shopped For a Factory in China Where Young Women Worked Behind Barbed Wire for a Pittance.

It features Mitt Romney at some sort of fundraiser or event admitting that he outsourced jobs to China and used Chinese slave labor (colloquially-speaking) during his tenure at Bain Capital, and managing to rationalize it in the process:

If You Have An Hour To Kill, This Is Worth The Watch

Dan Savage debates Brian Brown of NOM over Same-sex marriage while in Dan's dining room after dinner.

It's 1hr 6minutes long. And is moderated by Mark Oppenheimer NY Times Belief column.

Dan, as usual, makes great points about civil rights & SSM while Brian keeps resorting back to the NOM talking point that men & women were meant to be together because it brings together "the best of humanity". In the end, Dan righteously debunks & slays Brian by using facts, logic, & reason, leaving Brian nothing but to keep rehashing his only talking point.

EDIT to add: This debate took place one week ago, August 16th 2012.

The theme of this year's RNC convention is "We Built This!"

Only one problem with their individualistic bullshit mantra: The RNC convention was completely built using taxpayer money & will be guarded by Unionized police officers & Unionized firefighters. Their flights will arrive safely thanks to TSA pat-downs and their bussing in of nut-jobs & hyper-fundamentalists will drive on collectivist roads. Still trying to find out if the convention was built using Union labor.

Oh, and the "fiscally conservative" GOPers are spending $2.5 million on a fancy stage.

Republican Senate Nominee Todd Akin Explains That Women Don’t Really Get Pregnant From ‘Legitimate Rape’

Rep. Todd Akin, the Republican nominee for Senate in Missouri, doesn't think abortion in the case of rape is really an issue. That's because he has it on good authority that women don't get pregnant from "legitimate rape" anyway.

First of all, from what I understand from doctors [pregnancy from rape] is really rare. If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.

The nonsense term "legitimate rape" aside, this claim is based on the belief that the female body won't let itself become pregnant during a rape, I guess because the women don't want to have a baby?

So You Need A Driver's License to Vote?

But in order to get a driver's license you need a birth certificate & Social Security card, and in order to get your Birth Certificate & Social Security card you need a driver's license?

Is that how it works? If so this is a MAJOR pain that will disenfranchise ALOT of people. I live in NYC and have never been asked for a photo ID to vote except for my first time voting back in 2000. Now I just walk into my voting precinct, tell them my name, and sign next to it. Then its off to the voting booth.

Btw, I don't recall seeing anything about showing photo ID to vote in the Constitution, and some courts have already deemed it un-Constitutional.

I wonder what Thomas Jefferson or John Adams drivers license's looked like. Hmmm...

GOP hates Big Govt, unless it oppresses those they disagree with or allows them to probe my vagina.

Trickle-Down Economics Adorably Debunked In 2 Minutes

"A New Low" The Romney Campaign Says??!

Personally, I believe the lowest OF ALL LOWS was when the GOP & Bush delegates wore band-aids with with Purple Heart drawings on them on the floor of the '04 RNC convention just to mock John Kerry, an ACTUAL receiver of the Purple Heart for being wounded in military action in order to defend a draft-dodging chicken-hawk neocon named George W. Bush. And not only wasn't it reprimanded by Bush & the GOP, it was encouraged. F**king A-Holes!

WE get mad when they mock our candidates with lies & smears, THEY get mad when we mock their candidates with the truth.

YES, Romney/Ryan wants to unchain Wall St. That's the TRUTH. And these 2 chicken-shits are too spineless to stand up for their position. Instead they will lie to our citizens about their position than backstab us all like cowards.

And lets not forget ALL the other BS they have said about Obama, Michelle, Sasha, Malia. The racist taunts, the heckling at the SOTU, the complete fabrication of who Obama is and what he stands for. F**k THEM!
