It is not your fault   because you are special. Anyone recognizes the pattern? That's what you say to a child. We are dealing with the sandlot.

There is nothing more sacred, more important and more powerful as a drive   in the US MSM as that one. If only   even a shadow of guilt appears on the horizon- the whole Hell breaks   loose.   The " I did not do it' boy is the Person of the Millennium and   should   be put on thee cover of Times Magazine.

Joe, the Moron Scarborough is mad as Hell. No, he is not mad at the US crimes against Humanity or about the anniversary of the most heinous one- the Nuclear bombardment. No, Joe is hysterically mad about the political ad. On that ad   an older man tells us a story about him   being laid off from the factory closed by Romney's   Bain company; how his wife could not afford the treatment for cancer   before it was too late and how she died. He also states   something about Romney not caring. The whole thing lasts about   60s and I, personally had not even noticed it. Definitely   no biggie in my book.

OMG! OMG! Four grown- up men and one woman nearly   fought   each   other about this one. What words did Joe   and others use: despicable, horrendous, low, etc. How meticulous they   were   to point out that that woman ( Wow, now they could identify who that woman was and line up all her life, so quickly; they were not that efficient at all during the Iraq war or the Lybian invasion)   had medical insurance and   that she died only in Y2006 while the factory was closed in Y2001 so   NEVER, NEVER, NEVER Mitt or whoever should feel even a shred of responsibility for that death. NO, SIR, Mitt   does not have to protect himself: Joe Scarborough is at your service.

Ok, after we witnessed Mr. Gibbs and Mr. Steele shouting at each other about those ads, let's calm down. What does   the ad say? It   says that Mitt Romney and Co, closed a factory   apparently   not caring very   much about the workforce. True or false?    I guess   it is true. No one argued against that on the Joe's show. They let that aspect slide. The woman, the wife   of the person   apparently had cancer.   I   do not know about you but I think that   if a person has cancer a stress about your   spouse losing   the job   does not help. There is an overwhelming statistics of that. So there certainly seems to be   a correlation between   Romney's millions and death of that person. Moreover, we all know and there was a lot of information   on the consequences of Bain's actions   relevant   to the fates of individual human beings; in all fairness, Bain is not unique   in that activity.   All-in- all   Romney should feel   at least two types of the   Jaspers's guilt - a metaphysical guilt   and   moral responsibility. That simple.   What's wrong with that? If you   get all those millions you should at least be an adult.   That's life- you are not a dollar bill to be loved by all you hurt on the way.

Not a chance.   Such perception ruins the whole House Of Cards.   No matter what our dear Presidential   Candidates do, no matter   how stupid, mean, idiotic and malicious would be their behavior -   THEY ARE TO BE LOOKING GOOD AND FEELING GOOD ABOUT THEMSELVES. It would be a carnal   sin for an MSMer to even mention a possibility of guilt; do it once and you will be banned from MSM forever.

In that vehement effort to erase even a shadow of self- doubt,   a slightest   ray of empathy Joe and his cabal   bark like dogs.   It is always amusing to watch those folks getting   so aroused on the issues they really have to work for, the issues they are really paid money for   to guard.   None of those sitting     there even stayed silent. They ALL had to contribute,   ALL had to show   to their masters the proper reaction. The similar behavior I witnessed before only at the meeting of the Young Coomuinist Pioneers organization when the teenagers, ALL of them, were eager to condemn   their own friend for   whatever the leadership told them to.   But those were kids. Here   we have adults behaving like kids. And for good money too.   What a progress..

Yes, Romney himself did not kill anyone. But you know- neither Adolf Hitler.    I am   using this strong comparison for   a reason- Hitler considered   himself   immune from all   types   of guilts because he   was SUPERIOR and that SUPERIORITY he expanded as   a gift to Germans; they embraced that and .. we all know what happened.

Americans   work very hard   on not feeling guilty of anything   because they   consider themselves SUPERIOR.   It is the same kind of disease.   They are being bombarded by that message 25 hours a day, 7 days a week.   That's what   makes them all connected: the bum on the street and the millionaire- they all feel superior.   Come again?   Superior, special. You can have no conscience. Your media takes care of it.

Human being differs from the Ape because Human being   is supposed to have conscience, to feel guilty, sad, doubtful as well as proud, self-righteous, confident. Those are the two sides of the same coin.   People of the US had been   kept in the cradle for too long. Here's wisdom, folks: you are as guilty as everyone else; the difference is only in the types and levels of crimes. Mitt Romney is guilty    because he benefited from the event which drove another person to death. Obama is guilty of other bad things, you name it.   No sleaziness and no flattery can save a person   from his/her conscience unless he/she has no conscience. But God help us all if we have   too many people who have no conscience. There will be no way out then.

Feel guilty, my friends. It is good for you, makes you stronger. It is certainly good for Humanity. And it is good for the US, I can assure you.
