America's in trouble
Last week on ABC's "Good Morning America," Mitt Romney said he would define "middle-income" as between $200,000 to $250,000 a year and less.
He is totally out of touch with the reality of what ordinary Americans deal with every day. The 2008 census reported the medium income as $50,233. This would make the middle class income range $37,675 to $75,350.
How can you elect someone who has no concept of what the average American deals with... living pay check to pay check ?
If only we all had been born into a family of privilege but this is not reality. He has never had to wonder how the electric bill would get paid, or had to eat potato soup.
I urge any American's to read into his past, for minorities and women please check into his Mormon religion. Mormon women are barred from the priesthood and most senior leadership positions. Mormon tradition strongly encourages women to be homemakers, sounds like a lot of fun, right?

Who set it in stone
Where does it say that I'm too old

rather than conceal in my mind what I really feel
Everyday I walk fast
when I really want to slow down and take it all in
break the spell
ask myself who the hell ?
How many of you want to break out of these conformed space
Ask yourself ... Is this who I really am ?

Eyes watch you

ACTA: The new threat to the netACTA -- a global treaty -- could allow corporations to censor the Internet. Negotiated in secret by a small number of rich countries and corporate powers, it would set up a shadowy new anti-counterfeiting body to allow private interests to police everything that we do online and impose massive penalties -- even prison sentences -- against people they say have harmed their business.ACTA: The new threat to the net4 years ago in Scraps More Like This
Europe is deciding right now whether to sign ACTA -- and without them, this global attack on Internet freedom will collapse. We know they have opposed ACTA before, but some members of Parliament are wavering -- let's give them the push they need to reject the treaty.
It's outrageous -- governments of four-fifths of the world's people were excluded from the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) negotiations and unelected bureaucrats have worked closely with corporate lobbyists to craft new rules and a dangerously powerful enforcement regime. ACTA would initially cover the US, EU and 9 other countries, th
