    more of us need to speak out.  I teach in a community college that serves very economically and socially diverse counties in VA.  I see women everyday who are raising small children, working at least one if not two jobs and are one paycheck away from going to the food pantry or facing eviction from their homes.  These women are still going to school.  They are dead tired.  They stay up till all hours to take care of their families and do homework.  And they still come to class prepared.  Every single one of them works harder, has more integrity and honor, and is more of a patriot than either Romney, his wife or his running mate.  

    What infuriates me about Mittens is that he has no consideration for women like these.  He would take away their last dollar if it helped him get elected.  He would take away their last dollar if it meant more profit for one of this campaign contributors.  And he makes a mockery of their hard work because they are poor and often single and they are women.  

    Angry Annie Romney who is so quickly offended by any implication that she never, in her wildest dreams could begin to imagine what it is like to work this hard wants us to stop asking about her tax returns.  She never had to worry about a medical bill for herself or her children and she wants to deny people like my students affordable insurance coverage.   If the Romneys and the Ryans have their way, many of my students wouldn't have the money to go to school, and they wouldn't be able get insurance coverage.    

    Both Angry Annie and Mittens make me sick to my stomach.  They are not now and they never were victims.  They were always vultures, living off other people's misery.
