good the man suffered enough already.  He had to pretend to care about the plebes for almost two years.  Although it seems they will be allowed onto his beach.

I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.

Five score weeks ago, a great American, in whose domestic shadow we stand today, signed an application to the zoning committee of San Diego. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of wealthy people who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their parking at street level.

But one hundred weeks later, the rich man still is not free. One hundred weeks later, the life of the rich man is still sadly crippled by the manacles of city planning and the chains of bylaws. One hundred days later, the rich man lives on a lonely island of one-story garages in the midst of a vast ocean of multi-story buildings. One hundred weeks later, the rich still languishes in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile on his many spacious acres. And so we've come here today to dramatize a shameful condition.

In a sense we've come to our nation's capital to cash a check, and a large one at that. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir, though some of us had inheritances of much greater values. This note was a promise that all men, yes, rich men as well as merely well-to-do men, would be guaranteed the "unalienable Rights" of "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Multi-Story Parking." It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note, insofar as her citizens of wealth are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the wealthy people a bad check, a check which has come back marked "insufficient funds", words that we had to have explained by our butler.

But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. And so, we've come to cash this check, a check that will give us the ability to place cars at heights that gravity strains to constrain.

[...]

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up on hydraulic lifts and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, but only some can afford vehicular elevation, and that's fine."

I have a dream that one day on the green hills of La Jolla, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together after a long day of building my goddamned car elevator.

I have a dream that one day even the state of California, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be able to marvel at the fact that I can walk from my Bentley straight into my bedroom.

I have a dream that my five sons will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the silliness of their names but by the technological advancement of their driveway!

I have a dream today!

So , judging from the size of the house, he is building a McMansion...with maybe enough lot left to put up a 20 foot fence a yard from the walls.
 
2013-10-12 02:32:21 AM
Meh. He came uncomfortably close to running the world, but really, it's not healthy to hold a grudge. Just work to prevent another Romney type man from getting that close again.
 
2013-10-12 02:39:27 AM
My problem is not with the fact that he is rich and can afford luxuries. I begrudge nobody luxuries; we live in a capitalist society, and I acknowledge the role that petty self-interest plays in ensuring the gears of capitalism turn and turn. If I knew of a better system that worked upon this earth, I would propose it, and fight for it, and die for it, and live for it.

My problem is with the fact that this man who has destroyed so many lives in his pursuit of short-term capital claims to love the same God that I do. My problem is with the fact that he claims to champion the poor, in public, while in private denigrating the young, the old, and those who serve in our military as the "47%" worth completely disregarding.

My problem is that 47% of the nation claimed that he was the most Godly man of all to govern the United States.

If I could find a man who openly spat upon the name of the Lord my God, and profaned his name, and dedicated his life to accusing God, but still found room for ensuring that the homeless, the hungry, the destitute, the alien could still find food and water and shelter and a path out of poverty, I would still find him more worthy of ruling this nation than the man who put a car elevator before his fellow man.

Read up on participatory economics. I'm a bit skeptical that it would actually work, especially the bit about workers councils but maybe that's a knee jerk reaction to the use of vocabulary similar to communism.Anyway, it's an interesting concept and certainly different from what we currently have or what's been tried elsewhere. It has been suggested that it's similar to the economic system used by the civilian side of the Federation in Star Trek, which makes it a bit more difficult to take seriously but does give you something a bit more concrete than academic papers to wrap your head around.

Good Lord, have you no pride? Elevator is bad enough, but escalator - one wonders when you shall take up bowling if you can sink to such depths. I myself prefer to have a team of mechanics flown in from Italy whenever I have the urge to see the Ferrari on one of the upper floors. They disassemble the car, then I fly in some Sherpas to transport the parts upstairs - very sure-footed people, the Sherpas - where my mechanics reassemble it and I am thus able to make that emergency dash to the lavatory in style and luxury. Now with the Rolls, you don't want Italians at all, you'd be better off with Englishmen, and though they tend to drink a bit they are easily provisioned, just a few turnips and a bit of beef. But Sherpas always.

I remember Walter Mondale. I remember Michael Dukakis. Mitt Romney makes Walter Mondale and Michael Dukakis look like towering examples of statesmanship by comparison.

Honestly the worst candidate in my lifetime, and it's not even about the so-called policy. It was about moments like this:

But he would not divulge what specific deductions would be eliminated.
"That's something Congress and I will have to work out together," he said, adding later: "The devil's in the details. The angel is in the policy, which is creating more jobs."

WE. DON'T. CARE. IF. THEY'RE. RICH.

We care when they are rich and they do any of the following:

They forget that their fortune was the result of a public infrastructure and numerous workers and consumers.
They act as if they owe as little as possible to said public who support the ability to maintain that wealth.
They engage in activity designed to increase their wealth using dubious means that imperil the financial health of the public.
They seek to shape public policy to protect their wealth at the expense of the public.

Romney did all of these things.

Because there's absolutely no comedy gold to mine here.  None.  Bran flakes all around!


yeah they romney threads are fun, there were some really funny romney jokes during the election. He was a great character to make fun of, super rich weirdo possibly a robot, then that picture of him after the election at the gas station...

I still can't figure out why he didn't just buy a bigger house in the first place. He could've bought a place with a larger lot of land, in La Jolla, waterfront property even. Windansea though, is sort of the low rent district of La Jolla. It's a nice neighborhood, don't get me wrong. Low rent in La Jolla is luxury homes in most other places, but still, He could've just gone bigger right off the bat. Instead he buys a smaller house, in a neighborhood where homes are close together. Then decides to demolish the existing home, to build a massive edifice to his ego, irritating the fark out of his neighbors for months. Creating a huge mess, blocking traffic.

And that's not even counting how he's tried to count the beach in front of his house as his private property. Or how he plans to eliminate the beach access that adjoins his house.

fark this guy, and his retarded, inbred family.

Opiate of the Lasses: Was in La Jolla for the first time in April. Drove up to his house on purpose and spat at his gate

/no one was home
//good riddance


So you actually talked to him?

Mr. Shabooboo: I wonder if it has a special laundry room for the magic undies? Shouldn't he be building these fancy
houses in Utah? Isn't that the chosen land for his people? Wouldn't he be more comfortable in the
land of religious phonies and arrogant douches that is Utah, rather than just the regular douches
of So. Cal. ?


La Jolla's got one of the biggest mormon temples in America. That thing is the embodiment of tacky eye sore. A giant phallic edifice to arranged marriage and incest.

I prefer classic cars, so an elevator would look out of place.

I'm installing a spiral staircase in my Jaguar instead.

This jackass just can't stay out of politics, so I'm predicting he'll run for Governor of California after Governor Brown terms out.

Our long national nightmare is over; Mitt Romney finally has his car elevator

The car elevator was a part of the 2012 election. It was a symbol of Romney being out of touch with the average American. Of course people are going to comment on it.
 
2013-10-12 02:01:02 PM
So he'd rather be pushing for his car elevator than pushing for Romney/Obama Care that his Republican cahorts want to defund.  Hey he could be spending his time reminding his Republican cronies how successful RomneyCare has been in Massachusetts  --  how in 2010, 98.1% of Massachusetts citizens have health insurance, compared to only 83.3% nationwide who have health insurance.  Nah, it's much more important that his cars have an elevator than his fellow Americans have health care and insurance.

The people who tell him what to think want him to conflate the idea that the very wealthy should pay a higher tax rate with being envious of the very wealth and hating them. So now that his programming is complete he comes and vomits that idea all over fark.com.

marcand: How did this guy NOT connect with the American voter?


Best part: Now that Mary Burke has announced she's running for Gov of WI next year I'm already hearing the right-wing talking points.  They're all pretty much variations of "Out of touch millionaire executive" because she was an executive with Trek Bicycle Corporation.  So now apparently having a couple million dollars and executive experience is a bad thing to the same people that are still gnashing teeth about Mitt Romney not becoming POTUS.

Actually, the best part is the WI GOP has purchased http://www.maryburke.com/.  Complete with quotes that don't have a name attached, some shiat about a trip she took to Argentina (apparently having money to travel is a bad thing, as is seeing how other nations live), and something about her "taking WI backwards" when I've been hearing nothing but "We need to take this nation back to the way it was" for years.

F/cking laughable.

Albino Squid: I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.

Five score weeks ago, a great American, in whose domestic shadow we stand today, signed an application to the zoning committee of San Diego. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of wealthy people who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their parking at street level.

But one hundred weeks later, the rich man still is not free. One hundred weeks later, the life of the rich man is still sadly crippled by the manacles of city planning and the chains of bylaws. One hundred days later, the rich man lives on a lonely island of one-story garages in the midst of a vast ocean of multi-story buildings. One hundred weeks later, the rich still languishes in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile on his many spacious acres. And so we've come here today to dramatize a shameful condition.

In a sense we've come to our nation's capital to cash a check, and a large one at that. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir, though some of us had inheritances of much greater values. This note was a promise that all men, yes, rich men as well as merely well-to-do men, would be guaranteed the "unalienable Rights" of "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Multi-Story Parking." It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note, insofar as her citizens of wealth are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the wealthy people a bad check, a check which has come back marked "insufficient funds", words that we had to have explained by our butler.

But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. And so, we've come to cash this check, a check that will give us the ability to place cars at heights that gravity strains to constrain.

[...]

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up on hydraulic lifts and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, but only some can afford vehicular elevation, and that's fine."

I have a dream that one day on the green hills of La Jolla, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together after a long day of building my goddamned car elevator.

I have a dream that one day even the state of California, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be able to marvel at the fact that I can walk from my Bentley straight into my bedroom.

I have a dream that my five sons will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the silliness of their names but by the technological advancement of their driveway!

I have a dream today!


Best post ever!
Bravo!

I'm not the one picking this fight. The commenters here don't want a car lift themselves, they just hate it that somebody else has the means to buy something that they themselves don't need, want, or approve of. In other words, what business is it of some Cheeto-encrusted basement dweller that Mitt Romney buys something they personally don't want and/or can't afford? The phrase dog-in-the-manger comes to mind.

I'm all in favor of this, as it would deprive the state of all that "millionaire tax" money. He could avoid a tax rate of 13.5% by moving to Florida and flipping CA the bird, and I think he should do exactly that.
