Cognitive Dissonance

"Democracy! Bah! When I hear that I reach for my feather boa!" - Allen Ginsberg

156 notes

This kind of divisiveness, 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.

Mitt Romney, speaking at Otterbein University in Ohio.

From ThinkProgress:

"At a ‘lecture’ for students at Otterbein University in Ohio today, Mitt Romney told students that, his friend, Jimmy John, started a business by borrowing $20,000 from his parents at a low interest rate. Romney suggested anyone in the audience could do the same."

Because EVERYONE’S parents have $20k just sitting around, amirite?

You know what a risk is these days? Going to college and hoping to all things holy you get a job that allows you to pay back student loans. Not everyone is able to sell a little stock here and there to pay tuition at an Ivy League school and not work.

Just sayin’
