Musings of an inappropriate woman... has moved

24/09/2012

“ The thing about not having much money is you have to take much more responsibility for your life. You can’t pay people to watch your kids or clean your house or fix your meals. You can’t necessarily afford a car or a washing machine or a home in a good school district. That’s what money buys you: goods and services that make your life easier. That’s what money has bought Romney, too. He’s a guy who sold his dad’s stock to pay for college, who built an elevator to ensure easier access to his multiple cars and who was able to support his wife’s decision to be a stay-at-home mom. That’s great! That’s the dream. The problem is that he doesn’t seem to realize how difficult it is to focus on college when you’re also working full time, how much planning it takes to reliably commute to work without a car, or the agonizing choices faced by families in which both parents work and a child falls ill. The working poor haven’t abdicated responsibility for their lives. They’re drowning in it. „

Moving up and moving out

Rachel here. Just letting you know that I’ve moved all content formerly located at miss-r.tumblr.com to rachelhills.tumblr.com, and will be posting there rather than here in the future.

So, if you follow/link this blog, please update your bookmarks accordingly.

As people who follow my Twitter would know, I’ve been thinking about making this move for months, but have held off because of the hassle of it all. The impetus for going through with it now is that I have some pretty big speaking engagements coming up over the next few months, and wanted to have a more logical and consistent web presence by the time they came around.

See you on the “real name” URL side…
