When I heard the promo for the news, that plans were in the works to picket the funerals of the 19 firefighters who died near Prescott, Arizona I didn’t even have to guess who those picketers might be. Who else routinely pickets funerals but the Westboro
Baptist Church institution for the criminally insane. Fortunately, or unfortunately for Phelps, Arizona said we’re not going to stand for that bullshit.
Pastor Fred Phelps, the head lunatic, has somehow either found a group of equally delusional followers or has managed to brainwash his flock into making funeral picketing their hobby. I think the man doth protest too much. Perhaps there is an underlying fear (or knowledge) within Phelps that he is or may be gay. I’m sick of these people disrupting funerals and it is my sincere hope that a meteor falls on that church and that Phelps lives only long enough to see the funerals of his church members being picketed. In the meantime somebody ought to out Phelps since he’s too much of a weenie to admit to and embrace who he really is. So what the hell…pass it on.

To Donald Trump: I will donate one million dollars to the charity of your choice if I may be allowed to pull whatever that thing on your head is to determine whether or not it is real hair and that you are not an alien from outer space. You have until midnight of November 2 to accept my challenge.
To Mitt Romney: You smile and tell us of great things you will do for this country, and I can’t help thinking I wouldn’t buy a used car from you. I must admit, some of what you say sounds great…BUT, I don’t believe you. Just like that line from an old song, “Your story’s touching, but it sounds like a lie.” Mitt, you tell us you know how to create jobs and you know how to fix the economy, but you’ve yet to outline how you intend to accomplish these things you supposedly know. With so much hot air, I’m surprised your feet stay on the ground. Does your magic mormon (deliberately not capitalized) underwear have pockets for lead weights?

In a recent appearance on The View, Ann Romney, who is apparently as much a Mittwit as her husband, claimed that Mitt and their sons having gone on Mormon missions to
shove their religion down our throats proselytize about the Church of Latter Day Saints is the same as serving in the military. That’s like saying little girls in girl scout uniforms selling cookies door to door is the same as serving in the military.
When pressed by Whoopi Goldberg on how Romney would explain why neither he nor any of his five sons served, Ann explained that the six men found “different ways of serving” by going on their Mormon religious missions.
“So, you know, we find different ways of serving,” she said. “And my husband and my five boys did serve missions, [but they] did not serve in the military.”
The substitution, she went on to explain, makes sense because the two share essential, character-building and altruistic values. Read more at salon.com
Really! I had no idea those bicycle riding white shirt and tie wearing young men ringing doorbells and annoying people were putting themselves in harm’s way. I’d like to see the statistics on how many Mormon missionaries come home in body bags, missing limbs, suffer from PTSD, or many of the other multitude of maladies endured by our troops that have been to war. How many Mormon parents have received the unthinkable news that their child won’t be coming home from their missions?
We should all be offended at Ms. Romney’s ignorance and insensitivity towards our troops and their loved ones. How dare she make such a comparison!
If Romney wins the White House will he be proselytizing and or sending out missionaries to spread the word? Will this constitute his foreign policy? Could this be why he wants to increase the budget for the military?

I watched Mitt Romney give a speech at a rally and he spoke about the four dead in Bengazi. His facial expressions were bizarre and inappropriate. He said that the ambassador was “wonderful,” then paused, looking for another, better word. He couldn’t think of one, so he said it again, vacuously, “wonderful.” Then, he smiled in a strange, even more inappropriate way, making a remark about a moment of silence that he didn’t invoke.
Then, there’s the way he keeps revising the truth, changing the narrative in distorted, dishonest way.
The first symptom– inappropriate affect– reminded me of when I worked as part of an emergency psychiatry team. Inappropriate affect was a common symptom of mental illness– psychosis that would warrant involuntary psychiatric hospitalization.
That got me thinking. Another symptom was “confabulation” delusional ways of seeing. Freedictionary.com defines confabulation as:
“to fill in gaps in one’s memory with fabrications that one believes to be facts.”
Now, I don’t think Romney needs to be hospitalized involuntarily, but these symptoms do add to the concern I have when I think about Mitt Romney as president.
BTW, there IS another psychiatric category where you see inappropriate affect of a different sort– sociopath, also called psychopath.
