the dramatics of the moment - this 65-year-old “Ken”

not, costs a mom.

it costs to “make it.” Both were raised in the “real

nothing, nothing at all matters to you and me, this,
Romney’s blatant disregard of the “misery index,”
this cat is not cut from the same hand-woven Cashmere
cloth as other wealthy politicians like JFK, RFK or
the Roosevelts - who at
least pretended to give a damn about this land’s unwashed
masses. Romney is the fat-cat flip-side of that ever
elusive rare breed - the compassionate Aristocrat
who harbors some small measure of empathy, sympathy
and understanding for the worker ants n’ bees. Instead,
it seems he personifies the multi-national corporatist
who harbors no allegiance to any particular cause,
people or flag. No, instead it’s all about the bottom
line, never ending, always increasing profits.

any heavy lifting, nor has he ever worked from “can’t

may not dig this... but dig this; Romney’s crafted
for himself a “charmed life” and a gazillion dollars

it’s far too clean n’ neat, as is the comparison to
Vultures. Instead, Romney is the undisputed
poster-punk for a type of “man of exceptional means”

his political calculations are based on his pampered
personal perceptions - of course. Mitt calculates
an individual’s worth and value by the enormity of

he’s got for “the Donald,” the Koch boys, the casino
cartel and all the rest of his self-anointed royal
roost of fellow country club nobles.

my friend what will happen if a man with an elf’s
handful of human compassion, like Mitt, is elected.
He is a proud pawn for filthy rich folks, the top-tier
of humanity who honestly do believe, wholeheartedly
- behind closed doors and at the end of the day -
that they, as rich people are better, in all ways
that matter than poor people... a concept to which
Mitt holds true. If elected, what we will all witness
is these bastards declaring, and trying to shove down

full of food they resemble Sam Walton’s pantry - they
surely don’t want to be left high n’ dry when hard

Romney and the 75% of White America that is going
to support him, are actually advocating the position
of... let them eat cake. “Them” being the working

of color and for them it’s meaningless if this elitist
