The wooden man, Willard Romney, actually said this at a recent appearance at Otterbein University:
“This kind of devisiveness, this attack of success, is very different than what we’ve seen in our country’s history. We’ve always encouraged young people: Take a shot, go for it, take a risk, get the education, borrow money if you have to from your parents, start a business.”
Of course we know that worked out very well for Mittens, but for virtually every other American who wasn’t born into the 1 percent, starting a business when you’re already tens of thousands of dollars in debt for student loans, whose parents are increasingly struggling just to get by, and you can’t find a job, it isn’t exactly an option.
And not everyone’s parents has a trust fund to hand them, nor the money to send to Harvard without incurring any debt or having to work to pay the cost of the education.
When I was a kid, I loved Bazooka Joe bubble gum. I hadn’t thought of it in years until I saw this commercial for it, shown at the end of a recent episode of “30 Rock.”
Don’t forget to click over to my new blog, clicksnapclick.wordpress.com if you would like to see some examples of my fifty plus years of photographic experience. I try to mix things up with current photos and scans from older vintage photos and slides. A good mixture of digital photos and film-based work from the pre-digital age as well. My interests in topic are varied, and I hope, interesting, at least some of the time. Give it a try and if you like, book mark it or just check back from time to time, and leave some comments so I know what people like and don’t like.
