We’re having a field day with this. It’s a Liberal’s laugh-a-thon. A three-ring binder circus.
Mitt Romney’s “Women in binders” comment is quite possibly the most memorable tagline of the 2012 Presidential Election. It’s right up there with golden gems of the past. Recall — “Extremism in defense of liberty is no vice….” “You’re no Jack Kennedy,” and “Are you better off now than you were four years ago?”
Apparently, Mitt Romney’s management style pretty much comes down to two things — balance sheets and binders. If it’s profitable, go for it. If it’s unprofitable, eliminate it. But there’s a lot more to what I will term “Bindergate.”
Here’s a closer look at the files:
Here’s a multiple choice question — Pick the only one of the four candidates on this year’s presidential ticket who is a Protestant:
A. Paul Ryan
B. Mitt Romney
C. Joe Biden
D. Barack Obama
If you guessed “D,” Barack Obama — you got it right.
Yet irony of all ironies, the man often accused of being a Muslim by millions of Protestant fanatics is, in fact, one of their own. He’s the only one of the four candidates in this year’s race who professes to be a Protestant. Romney, of course, is Mormon. Ryan and Biden are both Catholics.
Not that this will matter. This year, Protestants will vote in overwhelming numbers for Romney and Ryan – which are more inclined to be “anti-Obama” votes than a genuine show of enthusiasm for their own ticket. Fortunately, those numbers are continuing to show a steady decline as more and more Americans sever their lives being tethered to a fairy tale.
The most recent poll results of religion and politics in America reveals some encouraging news. For the first time since this nation was founded in 1776, fewer than half of the population identifies themselves as Protestants. Think about that for a moment, and consider the ramifications – which we’ll get to in a minute.

Labor Day means to recognize and applaud the working class who built this country with their caloused hands, leathered skin, and broken backs — and who now strive to ensure that our society remains vibrant. This day serves as a reminder that the American middle class was created largely by the efforts of those in the labor movement during the first half of the 20th Century.
