In an interview with Time Out London this week, Daniel Radcliffe, star of the Harry Potter franchise, revealed that he would like to father a child before turning 30.
“I really want to have kids. I’ve grown up around lots of people who were having kids when I knew them, because a lot of them were a lot older than me. And I saw the wonderful change in them. A lot more tired, a lot more happy,” said the 23-year-old actor.
He’s got big aspirations for his future offspring too. “I’m definitely going to be one of those parents who pushes their kids into things,” he says, adding, “I’d love my kids to be a boxer. Yeah! Cricket too.” But the 5′ 5″ actor quipped that he will have to find “a VERY tall wife” to ensure that any kids he has are good at sports.
It should be abundantly clear to all of us how dangerous a Romney presidency would be. Mitt Romney wants to cede federal power back to the states, many of whom were bankrupt recently and had to quietly seek stimulus funds which they subverted to balance their state budgets. Who really thinks the states would properly administer sole control of Medicaid? I don’t understand why the polls have the election so close. I guess many people are befuddled by lying political ads on TV. They can’t imagine that Mitt Romney would really turn Medicare into a voucher program where the elderly would have to seek healthcare insurance at a time in their lives when their bodies and faculties are waning. Romney supporters cannot see the dead stacked up in emergency rooms when after too late seniors are forced to take public transportation to get to a hospital and seek medical attention to stay alive.
Mitt Romney is some kind of Svengali who gives stump speeches promising “big things” with no ideas on how to financially make them real. The Paul Budget is real. Once installed in the Whitehouse, Team Romney-Ryan would use their good offices to influence Congress to extend tax cuts for the TOP 1% and increase taxes on the poor and middle-class to pay for them. For 30 years the middle-class has seen no appreciable increase in wages and salaries while those at the top of the ladder have flourished. President Romney would show us a new meaning for the word misery. When President Romney repeals Obamacare, we, the elderly, will have to go back to eating cat food and choosing whether to buy medicines or food. (I am not exaggerating!)
