Romney Caught Lying About His Role At Bain Capital - Mitt Romney Reaped Huge Tax Benefits Based On 'Active' Role At Bain Capital

Mitt Romney Reaped Huge Tax Benefits Based On 'Active' Role At Bain Capital: "'As we have said many times before, Governor and Mrs. Romney's assets are managed on a blind basis. They do not control the investment of these assets. The investment decisions are made by a trustee,' spokeswoman Michele Davis said.

But according to his 2010 tax return, when the Internal Revenue Service comes calling in April, Romney has a different answer: The presumptive GOP nominee reaps lucrative tax breaks for 'active' participation in the private equity firm he founded, as well as a host of other investments.

Health Experts Dismiss Assertions on Rape - NYTimes.com

Representative Todd Akin’s assertion that women who are victims of “legitimate rape” rarely get pregnant provoked outrage across the political spectrum, but the views he articulated are far from new in anti-abortion circles.

The idea that during rape, “the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down” to prevent pregnancy, as Mr. Akin said, has surfaced periodically among anti-abortion advocates over the past two decades, usually involving the term “forcible rape” to refer to what Mr. Akin called “legitimate.”

Dr. John C. Willke, a general practitioner with obstetric training and a former president of the National Right to Life Committee, was an early proponent of this view, articulating it in a book originally published in 1985 and again in a 1999 article. He reiterated it in an interview Monday.

“This is a traumatic thing — she’s, shall we say, she’s uptight,” Dr. Willke said of a woman being raped, adding, “She is frightened, tight, and so on. And sperm, if deposited in her vagina, are less likely to be able to fertilize. The tubes are spastic.”

Leading experts on reproductive health, however, dismissed this logic.

“There are no words for this — it is just nuts,” said Dr. Michael Greene, a professor of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive biology at Harvard Medical School.

Dr. David Grimes, a clinical professor in obstetrics and gynecology at the University of North Carolina, said, that “to suggest that there’s some biological reason why women couldn’t get pregnant during a rape is absurd.”

Romney & Ryan's positions on Abortion. Ryan's view is exactly the same as Aiken!

Romney & Ryan's positions on Abortion. Ryan's view is exactly the same as Aiken. Would you put a man with Aiken's primitive views a heartbeat from the Presidency? I think not!
Abortion exceptions
"Ryan opposes abortion under all circumstances, unless the procedure is deemed necessary to save the mother’s life. Romney says he would allow exceptions for cases of rape and incest.
Ryan is a co-sponsor of the Sanctity of Human Life Act, which defines a fertilized egg as a human being — similar to recent “personhood” efforts in a handful of states. He also won his seat in 1998 by running to his opponent’s right on abortion and emphasizing no exceptions. Romney has suggested he supports a constitutional personhood legislation, but has also said that he would allow for abortions in cases of rape and incest."

Good Look: 'We are all Sikh now' - Melissa Harris-Perry

Last weekend, Melissa offered a moving response to America's latest mass shooting, a senseless act of violence interrupting preparations for a birthday lunch at a Sikh temple outside Milwaukee. In her Footnote, Melissa made reference to Sikh documentarian and activistValarie Kaur who was on the ground in Oak Creek speaking with and documenting the community's recovery. Valarie had already written what I considered the most necessary piece in the days immediately following the shooting, writing in the Washington Post that the media shorthand "mistaken identity" -- describing how the white-supremacist killer may have thought Sikhs were Muslims, because we can get why they would be targeted -- should be forever retired.....
