00h UTC; SUNDAY, 7 OCTOBER 2012: It appears that GOP Presidential wannabe Mitt Romney may be resorting to the depths of trick, deceit, depavity, even outright fraud, to win Indecision 2012, and By Any Means Necessary--all the while trying to cover his tracks by insisting that such is a Mission From God to Reclaim Our Dear Lovely Nation. Witness these two tricks from last Wednesday's Presidential debate:
  • Governor Romney's use of a right-wing debating tactic known as the "Gish Gallop" (a/k/a "spreading"), which RationalWiki defines as "the debating technique of drowning the opponent in such a torrent of half-truths, lies, and straw-man arguments that the opponent cannot possibly answer every falsehood in real time"--reputedly also popular with conservative prolefeeders generally. (Possibly on the advice of his fundraisers and handlers, no? In any event, FactCheck.org's calculating that Governor Romney's delivering 26 lies in 38 minootas perhaps demonstrates the distractive power of "Gish Galloping" so as to mislead and distract.)
  • As if that weren't enough, some sources are reporting where Governor Romney may have been using crib notes at one point in said debate ... and that there is TV footage posted to Teh Innerwebz suggesting such a likelihood (in this case, slowed up in "action replay" stylee), notwithstanding where the Romney campaign is insisting that Romney was actually reaching for a hanky at the moment in question. In any case, the clip continues to be analysed.
Meanwhile, readers, why you need to be concerned about whether your vote really counts this year, what with rumours about electronic voting machines not exactly being infallable and error-proof, as well as threats of voter intimidation and harrassment by the weird and unwholesome element.

=============

What Mitt Romney, methinks, thinks recovery should look like (cf. his rather tasteless contempt for news of a reduction in the month-on-month unemployment rate from 8.2% to 7.8% as announced just yesterday): Viz., one as is spontaneous, "people-centred," "born out of the Volk to serve the Volk" based on the disciplines and doctrines of ekonomesie vryheid met Amerikaanse eienskappe to be seen as integral and essential to Our National Character and Identity of the AmeriKKKan People and Nation (so long as "nation" is implied in that context of the white-nationalist acronym ORION--"Our Race Is Our Nation").

And we know who's especially expected to create jobs all the more under his regime: Scam artists of the "work online" and "multi-level marketing" variety, especially such as prefer to link income to building downline over the sale of products or services, targeting especially the weak-minded, the vulnerable and the unemployable as are expected to be shamed (howbeit subtly) through the use of "singers" delivering glowing "true stories" of how such schemes actually "rescued" themselves financially and economically.

So-called "sovereign citizen" types insisting on claiming common-law copyright to their name and stylee, as used in court documents and charge sheets (usually all-caps), with an eye to claiming arbitrarily-inflated "royalties" in the millions of dollars for "unlawful use" of their name (preferably payable in gold), probably have nothing on Clarence Saunders (1881-1953); after he lost control of his brainchild, Piggly Wiggly stores (which were the first to introduce self-service grocery shopping), in a stock raid, he decided to reinvent himself in the grocery world by launching a new (and at once competing) chain, which he called "Clarence Saunders, Sole Owner of My Name Stores" (usually shortened to just "Sole Owner Stores") in 1928; eventually reaching 675 stores nationwide, such became a victim of the Great Depression's effects and was forced into Carey Street.

How exactly do we know that "the Dirty Digger" "himself" hasn't his feelthy proboscis into a reputed brawl involving American Idol judges Nicky Minaj and Mariah Carey as has led to death threats translating into calls for added security of Ms. Minaj's house, particularly where publicity value and ratings (as have been faltering for the last several editions thereof, know) can be exploited? (Speaking of generating publicity, one of the more legendary attractions along storied Route 66, none other than Meramec Caverns at Stanton, MO, once dressed up a guy in a caveman suit and had him run amuck in and around the Empire State Building in New York, as if painting its message on barn sides across 14 states wasn't good enough.)
