A horse is a horse

Of course, of course, have you ever talked to a talking horse like Mr Ed?

well, maybe not…

but this High Horse story is sure telling a story about Ann Romney and her horse…and the Romney’s relationship to animals…

I do not write a lot of political posts on my dog blog except when it has to do with animals being abused (Patrick, Lennox, the V dogs etc), controversial matters related to animals, pit bulls usually, and this stuff about the Romneys and their treatment of animals keeps getting worser and worser… so have to say a few words about it…

as if the $77,000 tax write off as a business expense on Mitt Romney’s income tax statement was not enough… (as Lawrence O’Donnell pointed out) since Ann Romney’s health care has been used as the reason for the horse, to help her overcome MS.  Now I have read the Tao of Equus and heard about horse therapy helping people who have been abused and with serious illnesses but I’ve not heard about doing dressage with a horse to overcome MS.

But I digress from the issue here…which is that Ann Romney was SUED and settled out of court because her horse was sold and found to be full of drugs and unable to do dressage.

so if one puts that together with the dog Seamus strapped to the roof of the car for 12 hours, plus Mitt Romney’s history of abusing gay kids, draft dodging (he was a Mormon missionary in France during Vietnam), downright lies (that Rachel Maddow and others have outlined) and avoiding being a leader and taking a stand on any issue, never mind his lack of vision for moving the economy and securing jobs for Americans (and his background as Governor in Massachusetts and Bain Capital do not bode well), plus his anti-women, anti-Latino immigration and other stances, not to mention how OUT OF TOUCH he is to regular people, has NO CLUE how to relate to middle class and/or poor folks, sheesh…

‎”During the nearly 15 years that Romney was actively involved in running Bain, a private equity firm that he founded, it owned companies that were pioneers in the practice of shipping work from the United States to overseas call centers and factories making computer components, according to filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.”

plus how as Governor, Romney taxed blind and mentally disabled folks for being blind and disabled…

people who abuse animals often abuse people, too…

and raising taxes on the poor and middle class and NOT the rich,  I don’t think having an abuser in the White House is right for America…
