Will Mandel Debate Sen. Sherrod Brown???

•••  Sen. Sherrod Brown has accepted the Cleveland City Club's invitation for a debate location, according to the Sherrod Brown campaign site.

The clock is ticking.  Will the often absent Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel accept the invitation?

* My husband says that I take my support of liberal-leaning, Democratic supporting business too seriously.  However, when the right wing has people like the owner of this chicken outlet, I stay away from it so as not to give one dollar to the haters.


If you've been paying attention recently, you probably know about Chick-fil-A's little problem with the gays. It has been known for quite some time now that the company has been making anti-gay donations to organizations such as Exodus International. But of course, shit really hit the fan this week when Chick-fil-A COO Dan Cathy had this to say about charges that the company was working to undermine gay civil rights:
Well, guilty as charged.
Why would anyone support a company that displays such animosity toward fellow citizens?

>>>  Another day and Mitt Romney still hasn't released his tax returns. Is he hiding something?  The LA Times looks at the foreign investors that helped get Romney's Bain Capital off the ground:

LA Times:

When Mitt Romney launched Bain Capital in 1984, he struggled at first to raise enough money for the untested venture. Old-money families like the Rothschilds turned down the young Boston consultant.

So he and his partners tapped an eclectic roster of investors, raising more than a third of their first $37-million investment fund from wealthy foreigners.....

Does Mitt Romney really believe in supporting American businesses and American workers?
