OK, Mitt, let's see what would happen. If you COULD crank open that window next to you in First Class everything in the plane that wasn't bolted down, including babies, would be sucked out of your window as you enjoyed the breeze. Everyone would be scrambling for the oxygen masks to save their lives as the pilots put the plane into a terrifying power dive to get down to where there's natural oxygen.
This man's stupidity is a many faceted, ever expanding and evolving source of constant delight, one that explores new topics and depths of ignorance on a daily, continuing basis.
The news this morning reported that Romney is 10 points behind Obama in Ohio and 9 points behind in Florida -- both are states without which Romney cannot win. Apparently, people are catching on more and more about Romney and his pro-megabucks, anti-everybody else policies. We begin the debates next week, an activity at which Obama has always been better than the gaffe-prone Romney although I don't expect to see Romney offering to bet the president $10,000 about something!
I'm enjoying my physical therapy. The therapist is introducing me to exercises that target back muscles around the spine that, when strengthened, will help take the strain off hard-pressed discs. Some are fun, others are going to require a bit of time for me to master as they require the isolation of muscle groups from each other, some (lower abdomen and buttocks) tightened while others remaining at rest. This is difficult for me as my approach to any exertion has always been to tighten everything and lift/pull/push, whatever. I obviously need to develop some new reflexes. However I suspect I'll get a much tighter lower abdomen and butt out of this, and that can never be bad!
I grant you, though, Romney is much, much stupider. Can it be that nearly half of America will STILL vote for him?
Also frightening what you picked up on re America's blind eye to global warming in the other post. Especially after this summer.
The idea was to promote fear, with gays and lesbians prime among the supposedly horrendous threats to the nation, along with immigrants (non-whites in particular), liberals, non-Christians (all Muslims in particular), the French and the poor. Things have gotten progressively worse, less cooperative, and the rhetoric more composed of outright lies ever since.
I want my country back, but I mean it in a very different way that Mitt Romney does.
Glad you're liking the PT. Hope you start to notice improvements in the way you feel. It's easy to lose muscle in your butt and lower abs (and most people do) and we don't appreciate how much that affects posture and back health. Wishing you improved physical health as a result of the crappy news about your back!
