The Stealth Hippopotamus: Grand_Moff_Joseph: Mitt: In case you missed high school civics class, offering bribes for votes is generally frowned upon by election authorities.

Hurry! Get on your Obama phone and call someone who cares!!


NY and NJ are getting all the press and money is flowing into those states. The states getting less press need supplies too.


Are you seriously implying that "Obama phones" are "bribes for votes"?

Would it have hurt anyone to stop and do some research on which charities need what? GIve Red Cross the types of donations they need, give the food to local food banks, and so on. Hell, Douche's own church has a phenomenal disaster system set up, and the churches are well prepared to be turned into emergency shelters. It might seem like some kind of conflict of interest at first, but LDS Charities would have been perfect for donating the supplies to. The point of making donations at a time like this isn't to just go to Wally World and pick up 3 cans of creamed corn and a can of pureed beets, it's about providing what's needed, and something like a Presidential campaign should be able to donate to multiple causes and figure out who needs what. Red Cross is good for money and blood. LDS Charities can take pretty much everything else, but there are also food banks and homeless shelters to consider, these often pull double duty at times like this, and help out everyone.

If someone actually CARED about helping others out, they would have been able to see this, and would have had multiple donation tables throughout the event, even spanning redundant charities if someone was unwilling to donate to the LDS, for example, but wanted to donate to Catholic charities instead.

I am no fan of Mitt Romney nor am I a Mormon. However, if Romney is true to his religion, doing what he can to help those in need, regardless of some perceiving it as a political stunt, is not something I am going to chastise him for. And maybe, just maybe his grinch heart will grow a few sizes.

but he's giving to charity, that's what matters. not that those cans aren't going to help that family get their house off Rt. 35.

The political stunt may be doing more bad than good since it:
a. Sets a wrong example.
b. Actually diverts needed resources into it.

He could be an adult about it, but decides to act like a teenager, and boy, outside the US we wonder: "What the fark is wrong with 50% of the US?"

While I think Romney is a total prick and doesn't give two shiats about anyone else, unless it benefits him politically to care, donating to the LDS church IS donating to charity. Their charities are huge, and they often arrive with supplies in disaster areas before the US government does. They already have a ton of ready distribution centers in their churches, and they buildings are laid out so that they could accommodate hundreds of people who need shelter.

Not defending Romney, not defending some of the practices of the LDS church. What I AM defending is the amount that their charities are able to provide to communities all over the world. They deserve credit for that at least.

Nina_Hartley's_Ass: Christie is praising Obama again right now.


Weight Watchers holds as a descriptive axiom the transparently true fact that for each of us the universe is deeply and sharply and completely divided into, for example in Christie's case, him on one side, and everything else on the other. This for each of us exhaustively defines the whole universe. And then they hold by a prescriptive axiom the undoubtedly equally true and inarguable fact that we each ought to desire our own universe to be as full as possible, that the Great Horror consists in an empty, rattling personal universe, one where one finds oneself with Self, on one hand, and vastly empty lonely spaces before Others begin to enter the picture at all, on the other. A non-full universe. The emptier one's universe is, the worse it is. Weight Watchers perceives the problem as one involving the need to have as much Other around as possible, so that the relation is one of minimum Self to maximum Other. We each need a full universe. Weight Watchers and their allies would have us systematically decrease the Self-component of the universe, so that the great Other-set will be physically attracted to the now more physically attractive Self, and rush in to fill the void caused by that diminution of Self. Certainly not incorrect, but just as certainly only half of the range of valid solutions to the full-universe problem. Is my drift getting palpable? Just as in genetic engineering. There is always more than one solution. An autonomously full universe. Rather than diminishing Self to entice Other to fill our universe, we may also of course obviously choose to fill the universe with Self. Yes. Christie plans to grow to infinite size. There will of course eventually cease to be room for anyone else in the universe at all.

...but he may be willing to leave a space for Obama.

Mikey1969: The upshot to all of this? 'Romney' is becoming so synonymous with 'douche' that pretty soon we'll be able to use them interchangeably. We won't have to type 'Romney is such a douche' anymore, we can just type 'douche', and people will know that we mean 'Romney'. The number of yearly carpal tunnel cases will drop drastically, keyboards won't wear out as quickly, and data usage will drop significantly. It will be a better day for all. We really could just start today. Here, I'll go first:

Douche really thinks that he can get away with pandering so blatantly? If I were a douche supporter, I'd be insulted.

Nina_Hartley's_Ass: Red Cross had to divert staff to deal with Romney's phony "relief effort"


I'm sure the leadership of the Red Cross just decided to quietly accept it so as not to have a repeat of the soup kitchen. Rather than make an issue out of "WHAT PART OF SEND MONEY, NOT STUFF don't you understand?!" and piss off half of their donors, they just say, "Thanks," and accept the stuff.

Later, when the immediate crisis is winding down, they can let people pick over the canned goods and whatnot Romney collected.

Arachnophobe: PanicMan: Freudian_slipknot: It's not as though he has enough donations to help EVERYONE.

I mean, where would a guy like Romney get that kind of cash?

He can't even ask his parents to loan him some. Poor Romney.

Came here to say this. Instead of donating to his church this year, why not donate to all the effected states?

Because if he doesn't tithe, he doesn't get one of the really good planets to be god of when he dies.



Mormon St. Peter: "Lets see here... *punches numbers into computer* Whooooa, you donated a whopping $3,000.00 to the Mormon Church...

Me: Yeah, I love my church and I...

Mormon St. Peter: TOTAL, in all of your years of life. $3,000.00. Smh. I suppose one of the Utah facilities could use another faucet for one of their bathrooms, but I'm sure they did not appreciate having to pay it off in $3.00 installments for the last 90+ years.

Me: But, I had to make sure my family was taken care of. I thought you'd be more pissed if I tithed but was unable to feed my family or give them shelter.

Mormon St. Peter: You chose...poorly. Step into the planetarium. Do you see that one right there?

Me: Pluto? But that's not even a planet anymore and I thought...

Mormon St. Peter: Easy now. Pluto is for closers. I'm talking about BEHIND Pluto. See that rock with Bruce Willis drilling through it? That's all you right there, buddy. And no, Aerosmith will not be there.

Me: This is some bullshiat! I want to protest this decision!

Mormon St. Peter: Wait, are you a black guy???

Me: *whistling* Okay! I'll just be heading on over there now. I'll give Bruce your love.

If only they had put up screens instructing folks how to donate to the Red Cross along with collecting supplies.

ps. When did we decide the Red Cross was the only entity capable of helping folks out in a disaster? Have we really grown so cynical that we think folks in a shelter wouldn't know how to handle a truckload of bottled water, canned goods, and TP if it showed up unannounced?

The swing-state part of the story of course, is devoid of merit - that Romney would convert a rally into an astroturfed campaign rally in which they sent somebody to Wal-Mart to buy $5k worth of crap and then acted like it was being "donated" to them from rally-goers is sadly par for the course. The guy is really a tone-deaf dick.

No it's not, but that doesn't decrease the amount of charitable stuff the LDS church does all of the time.

Not like you paid attention to my post in the first place, but I'll respond anyway. This was about how they help out people in need, not their bullshiat politics. You knew that though, and didn't let that stop you from ignoring my actual point to attack them on something that I wasn't defending in any way.
