Reminder Alternative

Taking a day off from the reminder, but thought I'd share this little political item.

I couldn't agree more. I don't see what so many see in Romney/Ryan. It makes no sense to me. All I can think is that so many rich people and big corporations have donated so much money, that they have flooded the markets with ads that make themselves sound good.

It's truly frightening. I think the media is part of the problem. You have Fox as a propaganda machine, but the rest of the media is basically a tacit platform form right wing talking points. Almost everything is discussed in reaction to the nonsense and lies that the Right spews and "coverage" consists in talking heads bouncing sound bytes off each other. Even if they point out lies, it's done so politely that it hardly counts as revelation. Even when things are pants-on-fire false, the media seems to feel the need to pretend there's some question about whether there's an effort to deceive. Drives me crazy. I fear for the country if Romney and Ryan win. They are shameless liars. I think what lies behind their lies is even scarier than what they are being open about.
