Thursday Open Thread

June 21, 2012

It’s Thursday!

Need one more reason to hate Mitt Romney? Read this delightful account of the money spent each year on their fancy, Olympics-bound dressage horse!

For example, did you know that the average family spends a little over $16,000 on housing per year, and Rafalca’s housing costs nearly $29,000? That Rafalca’s clothing costs $10,000 per year? That the Romneys shell out $15,420 carting that four legged Fauntleroy from place to place?

Oh, and the Romney’s claim a $77,000 tax credit on this horse. Per year. Tax credit for an actual child? $1,000.

I just . . . no. Just NO.

And . . . here are 21 pictures that will restore your faith in humanity. A Romney Antidote, if you will.

Sigh. Feeling a bit better now.

What’s on your mind? Chat away!
