Let’s Help! The 99ers!

"There’s a growing group of people in this country who seem to have been forgotten by our government.  Collectively known as “the 99ers,” these are the people who’ve exhausted all of their unemployment benefits, and have nowhere else to turn.

At this site, I hope that those most in need can connect with those who can help."

Be sure to check it out and help if you can:

Thanks for support. Lost in last few hours to get 2nd place. Thanks! Chick-fil-A Flat Cow contest

You have to click "like" at top of their site before you can vote. Then scroll down to Doug's photo (he's riding bike and the photo of the cow is on the back of his seat as he rides in the RAGBRI) where it also is labeled:

"Flat Cow Photo Contest - Tagalong Cow. Click the like button to vote for this photo"

Share this with as many of your friends as humanly possible. Remember, the internet is our friend in this instance. vote .. vote ... vote ... vote .... Like ... like :o)  Now Go VOTE NOW! Thanks!

Once again if people inform themselves before spewing their hate, perhaps they'd get a clue and bite their tongue...

One of the best Special Comments from Keith Olbermann, on Countdown with Keith Olbermann: 'There is no 'Ground Zero Mosque (full transcript and video available at that link and video below courtesy of Countdown). Yes you read that right - THERE IS NO GROUND ZERO MOSQUE!

Want to know what REALLY is being built:

  "...What is planned for 45 Park Place, New York City, is a Community Center. It's supposed to include a basketball court. And a culinary school.  It's to be thirteen stories tall and the top two stories will be a Muslim prayer space." - Keith Olbermann

...and how far away from "Ground Zero" that it REALLY is, and how those that attacked us on 9/11 have nothing to do with this facility:
"...It is two blocks away from the northeast corner of the World Trade Center site. From the planned location of the Sept. 11 memorial it is more like four or even five blocks...." - Keith Olbermann. Yes, once again, you read that right, not even close. 

Sound threatening to you? I doubt it.

So, reminiscent of what is happening due to blind ignorance, lest we remember and never forget:

' “First they came for the Communists, but I was not a Communist so I did not speak out. Then they came for the Socialists and the Trade Unionists, but I was neither, so I did not speak out. Then they came for the Jews, but I was not a Jew so I did not speak out. And when they came for me, there was no one left to speak out for me.” Martin Niemoeller (1892-1984)'

What we are seeing is once more the spread of hate and fear to manipulate people to follow the party that thrives on the hatred hoping to manipulate you. Know the real facts about every issue, and about every real and fabricated controversy before you judge. And yeah, don't forget the Constitution if you need to refresh your memory of all of our rights.

Listen to all that is revealed in Keith's Special Comment. About the people, the structure and its purpose(s). Even if you're not a fan of Keith, it does not make what he tells you any less relevant or true. Learn a little about history, about what is happening right now, and how ridiculous this controversy, that should not be, truly is. It is nothing less than another distraction of what is important:

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

And oh, yeah, this pretty much shows how when one stop and really listens, really hears about even just it's location, it alone is a wake up call:

The list of Accomplishments are longer than many Presidents before him:

There are many things we all wanted, that perhaps haven't been accomplished quite yet, like DADT (Don't Ask Don't Tell), but if you hear the list thus far, a lot tasks have been completed. And they were not minor feats. Yes, the to do list is still long, but when you hear what has been done, you realize there is hope that much more will be accomplished. 

Do your part, make sure your voices are heard. Participate, write your congress, write your President. Help make change happen.

Why I will not be silent about the new law in AZ (continued)

Clearly spells out, why this is a bad idea  for AZ, and for the other states that have idiotic people wanting to implement the same laws into their state doctrine:

Why I will not be silent about the new law in AZ

“First they came for the Communists, but I was not a Communist so I did not speak out. Then they came for the Socialists and the Trade Unionists, but I was neither, so I did not speak out. Then they came for the Jews, but I was not a Jew so I did not speak out. And when they came for me, there was no one left to speak out for me.” Martin Niemoeller (1892-1984)

Ok, so some of my Conservative friends insist there will be no racial profiling, but how do they think this new law will be implemented especially when the Governor of AZ wasn't sure how they'd do it either? How will they avoid harassing the same people, citizens of the U.S., over and over again? Will the next step to avoid repetition be by adding "666" on their foreheads?

I do believe wholeheartedly this is the reason for the season of "No"

- obstruction to ruination so they can pretend to pick up the pieces later, but lest they forget, they got us into this mess.
