I’m Not a Scientist, Man!

The 2012 presidential election is barely over and Republicans, still in the process of licking their wounds, are casting about for a viable candidate to run in 2016. And, according to rumor, at the top of the list is the Freshman U.S. Senator from Florida, Marco Rubio.

…and Marco Rubio is a member of the Senate Subcommittee on Science and Space!… [Read more]

A Statement Worth Debating

Now that the second round of presidential debates is over, I’ve been revisiting last week’s Biden-Ryan debate because something Ryan said bothered me and it’s still unresolved. While watching the Vice Presidential debates, and trying not to get too irritated with stream of nonsense coming from Paul Ryan’s verbose answers, there was one thing Ryan said more than once that stuck out to me: “Mitt Romney is uniquely qualified to be President”.… [Read more]

First, I Will Be President. Later, I Will Be God!

Hello. I’m Mitt Romney. I am a Temple Mormon, a High Priest, and as such I have sworn blood oaths of sacrifice, obedience and consecration to the church and the “Kingdom of God.” My perfect obedience to these laws will allow me to become a god in the next life, the literal father of the peoples of a new and different earth.… [Read more]

Want another reason Mitt may have for hiding his taxes?

We’ll continue our series looking at the wacky stuff Mitt Romney believes as a Mormon next week.  But first…

Here’s an interesting speculation to toss into the mix when considering the reasons Mitt Romney might not be inclined to release his tax returns.

Question: Who is the highest ranking member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in elected office today?… [Read more]

If You Could Hie to Kolob…

(FIRST IN A SERIES)

(Note: This is not meant to be a hit piece against Mitt Romney, his beliefs or anyone who believes in the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  As we recall how President Obama’s faith was thoroughly examined, scrutinized and, in many cases, lied about, we feel it’s only fair to give the reader a good look at the religion Mitt Romney claims as his own.[Read more]

Unlikely Mormons?

What’s Sauce for the Goose is Sauce for the Gander.

Just this morning, I happened to stumble upon the “fact” that the late George Carlin was a Mormon. Really?  I thought he was not only an atheist, but an anti-theist, this based upon his body of work, and that he’d been raised as a Roman Catholic.  … [Read more]

Culture Shock, Future Shock

Gripping the New York Times this morning and recovering from sweaty nightmares I can’t remember, I read that Mitt Romney made the commencement speech at Liberty University and I subsequently felt what it is to be an exile. Pandering to evangelical voters concerned about his adherence to “traditional values” (and what an empty pile of kitsch those words signify!), Romney essentially assured them that his Mormonism wouldn’t prevent him from carrying out God’s work, and evangelicals apparently bought it.… [Read more]

Step Into the Light

Unless we end up with one of the most entertaining RNC conventions in decades, it’s pretty certain Mitt Romney will face President Obama in the 2012 battle for the White House. And when he does, expect Mormons across the country to take a keener interest in bolstering their food supplies.

The White Horse Prophecy (WHP) has long been a source of debate and consideration among Mormons, resurrected regularly anytime a prominent member of the LDS church throws his hat in the ring for the ultimate race.… [Read more]

Reason FTW

An interesting thing happened in Utah over the last few weeks. The general populace overcame their religious stranglehold, engaged in productive political activism and forced a rational and logical outcome. It was truly a sight to behold.

80% of the Utah’s state legislators are Mormon, and as a result wear the self-appointed titles of “Purveyors of All Things Moral.” They mostly run uncontested in their districts (meaning they don’t often have to fight off challengers in their own party; running as a Republican in Utah against a Democrat basically means “uncontested”).… [Read more]

Romney’s Whitewash

When all the dust settles and the GOP finally accepts the fact that Mitt Romney will be their horse in the proverbial race, their candidate will finally have to deal directly with some of the thornier issues in his personal and professional past. Without Santorum and his fascination with vaginas and anal sex, or Newt with his plans to make Tang our national beverage, the media and the American people may actually expect Romney to answer some key questions.… [Read more]

“Oh, you’n know me now?!” – Mitt Romney

He didn’t really say that, of course.  But imagine if he did!

In light of happenings this week, I feel it necessary to poke fun at Republicans‘ reluctant love affair with Mitt Romney, while also paying homage to the late, very great Ms. Whitney Houston.

That brings me to 2 things:

Dance with the one that brung ya…

Except in Mitt Romney‘s case.  … [Read more]
