Today is Paul McCartney’s 70th birthday. Happy birthday, Macca!
Can lead them to be depressed when they’re teenagers.
Really cranked up the treadmill today. Everything hurts.
On the bright side, I have two job interviews this week.
Foreign Policy with an in-depth look at Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. It’s interesting that the Obama administration basically removed the most high-profile areas from her purview and micromanaged her because they didn’t think she could handle it.
From Working Families:
QUAKERTOWN- Mitt Romney disappointed hundreds of supporters and protesters Saturday by canceling a scheduled campaign stop at a WaWa in Quakertown. After getting wind that his “Every Town Counts” bus tour would be met with a large group of protesters, Romney snuck off to a nearby WaWa to conduct a photo-op and avoid the dissenting crowd waiting for him.
“Mitt Romney is clearly afraid of the 99% and doesn’t want to face anyone who doesn’t agree with him. He is out of touch with the majority of Americans and clearly will go to great lengths to avoid dealing with regular people,” said Earl Williams of Bristol. “I wish Mitt had come today. We could have shown him that middle class and poor do not need to be feared and avoided.”
To avoid the dozens of protesters Romney left many of his own supporters waiting in the sun for two hours in front of the microphone and podium set up for his anticipated speech.
Prior to Romney’s cancelation, unemployed and outsourced workers gathered to speak out against the “Romney economy for the 1 percent.”
“The good jobs that my generation and my parents’ generation were able to raise families on no longer exist. People like Mitt Romney decided to send these jobs overseas to increase their company’s bottom line,” said Bill Rittler of Levittown in front of the crowd of Romney protesters.
Steve Nathan of Sellersville spoke about being unemployed for the last two years. “I’ve been out of work for a while and I cannot imagine how bad things would get if Mitt Romney’s vision for the economy came true. We would all be working minimum wage jobs while Mitt and his cronies pay less in taxes than we do.”
Was the voting rigged? Food for thought.
