Personal news, a Jig Zone puzzle, 3 short takes, and a homemade cartoon (shown). The first video is a must see.

You can add Poland to the list of countries whose citizens Mitt has offended.

According to NY News & Features, quoting CNN: "Mitt Romney's Offend the World megatour continued in Poland today, where the gaffe outbreak is apparently now contagious. Fresh off putdowns of the British and Palestinians, Romney aide Rick Gorka chipped in today by giving the press a lashing for ... asking about all of the gaffes abroad. While leaving the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Warsaw, reporters from CNN and the New York Times sent some questions in Romney's direction, causing Gorka to snap, "Have some respect." When a journalist noted, "We haven't had another chance to ask a question ... " Gorka shot back, "Kiss my ass. This is a holy site for the Polish people. Show some respect." Then he told a Politico reporter to "Shove it." He visited Poland, but refused to be interviewed! Mitt is so rich and privileged that he doesn't even have to do his own talking when telling people where to go. That's what aides are for!

The video really stirred up my emotions, Tom. The GREEDY are not only destroying our planet, they're killing those brave enough to try to protect it! GREED kills in a number of ways --and unless we form a united front to protect this world we live in and support the people who seek to stop the injustices the greedy inflict upon our planet, its resources, and its inhabitants-- the acts of the greedy may end up killing all of us.

With Gorka as his adviser - no wonder Rmoney is putting his great flat feet in it every time he opens his mouth! Thanks for that Susanne!

I agree completely and wholeheartedly with what you say about that video Susanne - it was soooo beautiful - and got like the Tea Party advocates - "grabby grabby grabby me me me me!!" And yes, we MUST stand up to be counted before their greed kills us all and all those we love!

Thanks Tom for the great video should be seen by all. So sad those who should see it the most are blind to what is happening in our world.

On Wrongmey, love his gaffs, hope he keeps it up, all good for Obama. On his personal staff, what Gorka said was wrong on every level but apparently Wrongmey doesn't get that either. Such a dumb POS!

Mitt Robme scares me as much as Bush-Cheney....maybe more because so many people should have awoken and realized how The Right is Wrong....

Puzzle 3:41 first time. About 5 hours later 2:58.

MoveOn Excellent video. I liken what we do to mother earth as being like the dentist pulling an abscessed tooth without any anaesthesia, only worse. Some beautiful, beautiful pictures. I am afraid that is all we will be left with if we don't get our collective shit together!

Rmoney He should have learned long ago to load brain first, then fire mouth! His comments about the Palestinians are, without doubt racist. From everything I've heard, he is almost the total opposite of his father. How can an apple fall so far from the tree?

Rachel Maddow Have to say that Rmoney did a bang up job on healthcare in Israel, and by extension, proved to everyone listening in the US, that national healthcare (socialist universal coverage) is the way to go. Let's face it, he lamented the costs of 8% of GDP in Israel vs 18% GDP in the US. And both Israelis and Britons (add Canadians in there too) like their national healthcare systems, not that they are perfect but they ensure everyone has coverage

Another thing I was amused at was when asked if the trip was successful, the Republican/Teabaggers said they thought so because he got his picture at the Wailing Wall on the front page of a lot of newspapers. When I first saw his picture at the Wall this morning, my first thought was this was all show and no go. Just another hypocritical stunt.

Sure is nice to have Rachel back in such fine form.

Willard likes to spread his stupidity around no matter where he goes, He is so full of his self that he has no compassion for any one that's not rich like he is.
