darknemus: You know, hearing this does make me go back to a curiosity I've had for a while.

Are the candidates' families (and the candidates, themselves) screened by security. Lets just say, hypothetically, that Romney was packing heat (I realize this is an utterly ridiculous concept) - but lets go with a 'manchurian candidate' type scenario. Could Romney get close enough in that situation to follow through with his plan?

Like I said, I KNOW its a ridiculous scenario - I guess I'm just curious at what point the candidates and / or their families are no longer subject to the same security rules.

The post debate gatherings on the stage place a LOT of people in very close proximity to each other so that's the primary thing that generates this curiosity. I'd never want to see it happen, of course - its just one of those things I've pondered.

On another, related note (again, I KNOW this isn't going to happen) but lets say Tagg Romney rushes down towards the stage and Obama says to his SS detail "let him go" - do they let him go? or do they protect the President over the President's own request. I mean, can Obama tell his SS detail to 'go away'? Its one of those things about the presidency I've always been curious / fascinated about. Idiotic statements like this by Tagg just make me dwell on these things - I've got a weird mind, sue me. :P


From the West Wing I believe they ignore the orders of the President in a scenario like that.

ManateeGag: if Romney got angry and took a swing at Obama during the next debate, would the secret service storm the stage?


I guess it would depend on who will be moderating the next debate and.. uh, oh...

r1chard3: Granny_Panties: I have no doubt Romney will start WWIII.

Are the Mormons apocalyptic? They don't seem to go on about the Rapture the way the Fundies do.


Heh. "Apocalypse" means "uncovering". Anything that pierces that mystic veil separating human knowledge from the divine workings of the universe.

So yeah, Mormonism is totally apocalyptic - from the Angel Moroni onward. :P

/also they have "latter-day saints" in their full title, with 'saints' referring to living congregants - so, yeah, any day now

Nice. Proof that Tagg is a real Man. A macho mega man. A STRAIGHT Man. The thought of Tagg hurting the president just reminds me it will be nice to have a classy kid in the White House, unlike Obamas daughter who wore a peace tshirt and is therefore ghetto trash. Kids take after there dads. (Which is why Obamas daughters are NOT US citizens). We need a President who will punch, insult and kill national leaders, not bow or kowtow or other rhyming words. Obama tries to take credit for killing bin Laden, but really he wanted to seek Osama just to negotiate surrender of America, and the SEALS took things into there own hands. This is the case: Obama is weak, and the second coming of Jimmy Cartier. Romney would say "lets roll", exterminate Iran and still be at home in time for his scrambled caviar breakfast. Not to mention Obama will turn us into the next Greece or Bulgaria with his massive spending. And btw all that stuff he said about Romney is bull. Ovama wants to blame him for what Bain did but none of that happened on Romneys watch, Romney has a blind trust and is legally blind. Bottom line is its high time EX president Obama stepped down because he is a one term president and needs to go back to Africa and film Invictus part 2 where he holds hands with Mandela and they get a soccer team or w/e. Romney meanwhile will become President, revoke the Geneva conventions, punch Obama and personelly waterbored Mandela and if you dont believe me, just watch.

You obviously don't know how Mormon families run. Mitt is God in his house, no one dares to speak back to him or question his words. It goes well with the whole egotistical rich thing, too. And to top it off when Tagg was a boy Blacks weren't even allowed in the cult, erm, church.

Mitt has a big bottle of Mifepristone which he dispenses when an ultrasound or invitro shows the presence of two X chromosomes.
 
2012-10-18 02:04:42 PM  
From Rmoney's list of "childhood indiscretions" and "boyhood pranks" he has a violent side. Most people grow out of it but I think he has other issues.
Someone on here has pointed out that he has been rich, respected, deferred to for so long that he is not comfortable with people opposing him and standing their ground...especially if they do it up front and in public.

I've got to go with 'meh' on this one. It's a simple case of a son being loyal to his father. He was just answering a question honestly. The town hall debate format is naturally more heated than other debate styles, and it's frustrating when you feel your viewpoint is being twisted or misrepresented and 90 seconds isn't quite enough time to set it right.

There is a reptilian part of me that would love to see the outcome of an old school fist fight between Barry and Rmoney.

Mountain Meadows. Americans have thought that of Mormons for quite awhile now...

I thought someone would bring up Porter Rockwell, who Joseph Smith sent to kill the then governor of Missouri, who had signed an executive order against the Mormons in their territories. Mountain Meadows is a good one too though.


How about the Danites? Pretty violent.

My Thanks to all the Farkers who have posted pics of the Rmoneys.

Take note, what you see here is the 3rd and 4th generation of America's super rich plutocrats. They are being raised to hate paying taxes and their worth as citizens is far above yours. This is the generation that will do far more harm to our future than any country / terrorist group to date.

The money that they will pour into congress, media and judges will erase the democratically elected republic that we still barely have today. If a class style revolution comes to America (such as the French Revolution) I only hope the Military is on our side.

So Mormons are like Scientologists, right? They consider it a virtue to lie to anybody who isn't a Mormon.

It's the only way I can rationalize how Mitt has *no problem at all* changing his mind every 5 minutes and lying about his own core beliefs so easily. And how both he and Tag can be so violently outraged when someone points out their lies. It's perfectly normal for that family to say whatever they want to achieve their goals.

Seems very cult-like.
