It doesn’t make us weaker when we guarantee basic security for the elderly or the sick or those who are actively looking for work. What makes us weaker is when fewer and fewer people can afford to buy the goods and services our businesses sell, or when entrepreneurs don’t have the financial security to take a chance and start a new business. What drags down our entire economy is when there’s an ever-widening chasm between the ultra-rich and everybody else.
President Barack Obama, April 3, 2012

Morning

Comment by Raine on 04/05/2012 13:15:40
I am sorry for my lack of writing this week. It's not easy to get all typing and stuff with my niece trying to sleep dow here in the basement.

Seriously, the Presidents speech was amazing, and I ended up reading pretty much the whole thing.


Today the niece wants to go to the Museum of Natural History and then shopping for a new backpack. Maybe we'll head over to Georgetown -- seems as tho she is hankering for some of those cupcakes she saw on some tv show. I hope she can find the place, cause aside from Georgetown Cupcakes I don;t know what she is talking about.

Yesterday we went to Old Town and then hung out around the house.

Then that must be it. That was the show she was talking about.

I've had them already. They are delish -- but a little on the small side, imo.

I've heard they were good but you can never be too sure about what they say on the TV

Lena gets her son ready for school
She says "on these streets, Charles
You've got to understand the rules
If an officer stops you
Promise me you'll always be polite,
that you'll never ever run away
Promise Mama you'll keep your hands in sight"

I just got upstairs and had a chance to watch the show -- I didn;t know what Rick OVerton looked like until now.

He looks scholarly.

Sadly, the Trayvon Martin case it partisan -- Especially when you see the amount of pro-zimmerman sites popping up all over the place.

It's disgusting.

I wouldn't say it is inherently partisan. It has been made partisan by the right wing that really doesn't have a clue about the naunce of race and ethnisity.

Good day folks. Another day, another something. Lizz was on the first segment of Ed's radio show. It looks like I have to get her and Rachel's books.

Hello, bloggers!

Well, I have some errands to run and will join a friend for lunch. So, be well everyone!

Time for me to go run errands myself.
