[important]Why Bain Capital Matters [/important]

There’s a reason why stories about the hollowing out of the middle class resonate — and why it resonates in this presidential election. It’s deep. You probably know someone who has lost their job — I sure do. It’s not just blue collar workers. Everyone is vulnerable.
The middle class workers who have had the rug pulled out from under them by changes in our economy aren’t slackers, they aren’t looking for handouts or freebies. They did everything they were supposed to do — study, work, save — and now, they just want jobs. They want the dignity of work. They want to contribute to the economy, their families, their communities. But they can’t. Their prospects continue to fall, even as corporate profits and stock indices soar.
Those who’ve been hit have had to clear out their desks, put their homes on the market, move their families. In many ways, they’ve lost their very identity.
It’s why the issue of outsourcing at Bain Capital matters in this election. Today, “The War Room” and Current TV have uncovered further evidence of Mitt Romney’s lies about the extent of his ties to Bain after 1999. Mitt Romney was the President, CEO and sole shareholder of Bain Capital when it inflicted this kind of pain on thousand of regular people. His Bain Capital took jobs away, closed companies, devastated communities. And to add insult to injury, he made millions off those empty desks, foreclosed homes, displaced families and shattered dreams.
That’s why he’s fighting the outsourcing charge tooth and nail — precisely because it hurts so much.

[important] Re-elect the President and Turn Congress – Blue! [/important]
Let’s keep this momentum alive! As Clint would say [Make my day!], please make our day! Support President Obama and the Democratic Party! Make your contributions – Today!
If you’ve noticed, larger corporations and their Conservative, Lobbyist, Hench men are spending copious amounts of money to buy this election. These special interest groups are willing to spend over a billion dollars to buy this election, to oust the president and replace him with a controllable puppet. You have to ask yourself why that is. Why are so many outside groups spending all this money in this election? You know this, you’re informed and people who are in the know don’t vote Republican. But, the reasons are: governmental agencies are putting the squash to their illegal practices, trying to reverse outsourcing of jobs, taxation and what I call; causing “Life Changing Events” in their lives. Incredibly, these people, groups are greedy and they, literal don’t care how these practices are affecting people at the bottom of their food chain. Not to mention, there’s this President, a minority at the top of the spectrum and that can’t be in their eyes. He can’t be the one causing their “Life Changing Events” and they can’t have that! This explanation is plain and simple; however, I think you get the message.
We are the people of America and America should be run by the people and not by corporations and their Hench men – lobbyist and special interest groups. We can’t allow them to drown-out the voices of the 98% of us! Please listen, hear me and this is reality “We can’t stand by while America is sold to the highest corporate bidder. We can’t allow the Supreme Court to just say: Your concerns don’t matter – the 1% and Corporations rule. Go home.” Sounds like Dorothy in the land of OZ – Go home! So, what can we do? What’s the alternative? The answers to those questions are: We wake-up, get the facts and vote in droves for President Obama and his administration that, in their eyes, is causing their “Life Changing Events” – vote Democratic this November 2012!
You know, I haven’t been pushing this issue, however time is getting short and November is just around the corner. I would like to contribute to the president’s campaign in the name of Democratic Liberal Umbrella and I can’t do this all alone. I need my friends at times like this, especially, when the opposition wants to destroy what the president has accomplished and the fabric of the American people. Do you see how they’re treating the Attorney General Holder with this in contempt of Congress charge? AG Holder along with President Obama are targets, they both have a big zero on their backs from the Right-wing conservatives and from AG Holder’s stand-point; he’s advancing equal rights, LGBT, defending voting rights among other things vehemently opposed by the Right-wing conservatives. I’m not at all trying to down-play the death of the ATF Border Patrol officer Brian Terry; not at all, death in the line of duty is catastrophic for his family and for the community at large! Well, that’s another topic in itself!
The Democrats and Democracy had a good day June 28, 2012 with the Supreme Court ruling on the constitutionality of ACA, in spite of the in Contempt of Congress charge on AG Eric Holder by the GOP! Let’s keep this momentum alive!

We need people to come together and support the President in this election of 2012, the push to turn Congress and this Country – Blue; strengthening our democracy. Your contributions are vital to our success — take this opportunity and donate today. In addition, the GOP is spending 1 billion dollars to remove Obama from the office of: POTUS! This group consisting of K och’s, K arl Rove and in the shadows the K han because Obama has caused “Life Changing Events “- for them! Let’s make these events last four more years for the three K’s!
