Barack Obama vs Mitt Romney debate parady song

Having steadied himself after a damaging first debate, Obama is banking on his renowned "get out and vote" ground operation to steer millions of supporters to the polls. Many have already voted under early balloting scenarios.
Republicans, meanwhile, feel Romney has finally broken through with his message that the economy can be much better, and that he's the man to prove it

Due to the overwhelmingly distress of America in the election year of 2012 in the month of October, we need to take a look at the lighter side of politics because not all of us are politicians. This video went viral on you tube and is very hilarious. While the performer who played Mitt Romney was really good I want to give kudos to the performer who played Barack Obama who really sounds like the President of the United States of America. If Barack did make a record he would sound like this man in the video. The genre of music that is used in the video bridges the generation gap just a little closer together because millions of Americans embrace this genre of music.

The second presidential debate between President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney was deemed a classic. The debate was setup in a town hall meeting style. These two men were described as being in a boxing match. They were up in each others faces like they were going to break out in a scuffle.

GOP strategists say the overall economy remains bleak enough for Romney to make a forceful closing argument: Obama has failed to bring the jobs he promised, and Romney has the skills and philosophy to do better.

Watch the video and take a break from all of the "political mumbo-jumbo" lawyer rich social class talk!

Is bottled water better?

Bottled water is not necessarily healthier or safer than tap water. In fact, some bottled water is much less healthful than most tap water. Since water is not shipped between states, it does not have to meet federal (Federal Drug Administration, FDA) guidelines for purity. This means that over half of all bottled water is legally allowed to be less pure and sometimes more contaminated than tap water.

Bottled water contains disinfection byproducts, fertilizer residue, and pain medication according to the Environmental Working Group (EWG). Several Sam's Choice samples purchased in California exceeded legal limits for bottled water contaminants in that state. Cancer-causing contaminants in bottled water purchased in 5 states (North Carolina, California, Virginia, Delaware and Maryland) and the District of Columbia substantially exceeded the voluntary standards established by the bottled water industry.

At EWG there is team of scientists, engineers, policy experts, lawyers and computer programmers that research government data, legal documents, scientific studies and our own laboratory tests to expose threats to your health and the environment, and to find solutions. Their research brings to light unsettling facts that you have a right to know.
Tap water has another advantage many people don't know or think about if they do know: it contains fluoride. Fluoride is added to drinking water to strengthen teeth and prevent tooth decay.

Geraldo Rivera has lost his wits

Geraldo Rivera of Fox News has blamed an innocent, unarmed minority for his own death by simply wearing a hoodie. Trayvon Martin, a 17-year old African-American male from Sanford, Florida was shot to death by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman. George claimed he shot Martin in self-defense.

George Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder but has pleaded not guilty, claiming self-defense.
A delay in Zimmerman's arrest led to protests nationwide. George Zimmerman still has his state concealed weapons permit, allowing him to carry a gun in Florida and the 35 other states.

The video speaks for itself.

Shots fired at SWAT team

Officials says a suspect was shooting at a SWAT team in Snohomish County, Washington on a Sunday afternoon.

Law enforcement responded to reports that a man had been shot in the leg in his driveway, authorities said. The man was shot about 1:30 p.m. and called the police before he was taken to a hospital with a non-life threatening injury, said Lt. Steve Dittoe, of the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office. The resident told deputies he had been hearing shots for about 15 minutes.

Once again, more senseless shootings from people in this country just because they can.  Where is the just punishment?
