I want to tell you to not vote for Romney for a lot of reasons.
I want to remind you how devastatingly dishonest he’s been regarding his own finances. How he basically committed a felony in 2009 which is why he won’t release his tax returns for that year.
How he lied blatantly about the auto…
This is one of the most powerful things I’ve read in a very very long time. Your mother did well with you, L.Bish. I hope she and all the other mothers and aunties of the great women I know can be inspired by this on election day.
The fall-out commentary over Mitt Romney’s “47 percent” comment has been fascinating for a number of reasons, but perhaps most of all because it has raised good questions of who actually pays for government and who benefits.
For those who want to dig deeper into these questions, there is a great new website that estimates the actual impacts of the Romney and Obama tax plans: Politify.
Where this really hits home is when you put in numbers for families. At the U.S. median income levels, the Obama plan gives a family of four a few thousand/year more than the Romney plan. At a $1 million annual salary, the Romney plan gives that same family of four $90,000 more than Obama.
Other things you could have done in the time it took Clinton to deliver his speech:
Walk from one side of Charlotte to the other
Get through half a game of Settlers of Catan
Microwave and eat a pack of hotdogs, one at a time
Metabolize one beer
Get halfway through a sleep cycle
Read 12 pages of Proust
Watch Gangnam Style 11 times
Because reading 12 pages of Proust is so much more important than understanding how badly the GOP has fucked the country, and how hard Obama is working to unfuck it in the face of unified GOP opposition in both at every level of government.
Jesus Christ, media. If you spent as much time informing people about things that matter as you do on pointless shit like this and reality TV, we’d probably have a working, functioning democracy in America.
I’m with Wheaton. Whoever this “Jason” fool is, maybe he should be doing all these aforementioned “other things” rather than trying to write “informative” blog posts for Tumblr’s Election blog.
