Saturday Open Thread

September 8, 2012

It’s the weekend, y’all!

I’m still basking in the afterglow of the DNC. In case you missed any, here is a compilation of 20 Badass Quotes from women at the DNC. Some highlights:

“First, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are correct when they say that each individual should be responsible. But their budget goes astray in not acknowledging that we are responsible not only for ourselves and our immediate families. Rather, our faith strongly affirms that we are all responsible for one another.

I am my sister’s keeper. I am my brother’s keeper.”  –Sister Simone Campbell, Nuns on the Bus

“No, Governor Romney, corporations are not people. People have hearts, they have kids, they get jobs, they get sick, they cry, they dance. They live, they love, and they die. And that matters. That matters because we don’t run this country for corporations, we run it for people.”  –Elizabeth Warren, U.S. Senate candidate from Massachusetts

These women make me proud. We’ve got just under two months before Election Day. Let’s buckle in for the ride!

What’s on your mind this weekend? Chat away!
