You’re Just Too Stupid to be President, Romney

Today presidential hopeful Mitt Romney told the NAACP convention audience they were too stupid to understand him, but he would take care of them by rolling back all programs in place to help the low-income.

Understandably, the audience did not appreciate being called stupid, even in a back handed manner.

You be the judge.

Check out what Rev. Wendell Anthony, president of the NAACP has to say prior to Romney’s speech.  Romney didn’t give him much to contradict this opinion.

Remember that Romney is against affordable health care, he was against rescuing the auto industry which has recovered hand is hiring, he is against the earned income credit and child tax credit (his sons have $100 million trust funds, how about your kids), he is against student loan reform and for reducing the number of Pell Grant recipients.  Here is the entire speech.  Listen and make an informed vote.

Can’t Find a Job? Make One.

By Charles Kemp

Creating your own job may seem daunting, but with today’s technology it is actually easier than ever.  Many young people fresh from college are doing this to keep out of the low-wage, long hour treadmill of bottom level jobs with no future the current economy is churning out.

One thing to keep in mind is that working for yourself requires discipline and long hours so choose something you are passionate about for a business.  If you can eat, sleep, dream and breath it, that’s probably your best choice.

Technology makes it possible to launch most businesses from home, keeping costs down.  Creativity can control other costs.  Use parts of your student funds to start collecting things you will need for your business.  Books can be used for research for your business and for papers in college.  Buy top of the line tech as you may not be able to replace it with business start up funds.

Partner with others or at least network to barter services and goods.  And above all, learn the best manners and business behavior and practice them. Treating customers and vendors in a professional manner can make or break a start up business.  Use all social networking available and develop profiles that are strictly professional.  Ditch the cute or cool e-mail addresses and profile names of college and polish up a business presence.

And above all, have fun.  If you don’t enjoy having you as a boss, no one else will.
