Still More To Go

While celebrating the historical election of the first black president, I realize that there is still a great deal to be done here in America. Several states passed initiatives to ban gay marriage last night. This is the new avenue of discrimination here in this country. It needs to be rooted out and left to whither in the sunlight of reason. We cannot rest until all Americans are considered equal and have the same rights under the Constitution.

Change Is Here

We did it! America made history last night and the whole world knows it. Barack Hussein Obama will be the 44th President of the United States.

McCain's Arizona Senate Seat Could Go Democrat in 2010

Whether he decides to stand for another term in office or not, McCain will likely face the battle of his political life (again). Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano will be term limited, and with her strong approval ratings and popularity statewide, she’d pose a significant threat to McCain.

FBI: McCain Camp ACORN Statement "Too Political For Us To Be Involved"

FBI: McCain Camp ACORN Statement "Too Political For Us To Be Involved":
"The Huffington Post reached FBI spokesman Richard Kalko by phone, who at first said he would have no comment about the ACORN investigation. (No surprise.)

But when told that the McCain campaign had sent out a memo alleging that Barack Obama had critical information to the case, Kalko asked for more details.

'When did they send that out?' he asked. When told it was a fresh release, Kalko asked the Huffington Post to forward him Davis's statement. 'I'd like to take a look at that,' Kalko said. 'Though I don't want to get your hopes up that I'll comment.'

Moments later, Kalko emailed back, writing: 'We have no comment on this issue.'

Reached again by phone and asked whether Davis's release would be taken seriously as an investigatory matter, Kalko merely said: 'It's just too political for us to be involved. We're just going to hide under our desks over here. Sorry.'"

Obama Uses The "L" Word!

Obama accuses McCain campaign of 'lies' - Decision '08-
"NORFOLK, Va. - Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama on Wednesday accused Republican John McCain's campaign of using 'lies and phony outrage and Swift-boat politics' in claiming he used a sexist comment against vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin."

And it's about time. McCain and Palin and the Republican Party have been lying to the American people. A person lies whenever that person purposely misrepresents, misinforms, or makes shit up. It's not rocket science to determine when somebody is lying. If what they are saying denies the facts in evidence, they are lying. And yet, until now, the Dems and Obama have been soft-balling McCain/Palin by saying things like they are "not telling the truth" or "stretching the boundaries of spin." Call it what it is, and make the mainstream media call it what it is. Then the people can decide whether or not they want another liar in the White House for the next four years.

Media Outrage

After watching the "interview" with Geraldine Ferraro and Rachel Maddow on the Today Show yesterday, I was moved to write in and give them a piece of my mind. Here is the e-mail:

Sent: Tuesday, May 20, 2008 1:13 PM
To: ''
Subject: Gender Bias Discussion on Today 5/20/2008

Dear Today Show,

I was disappointed this morning while watching the discussion on gender bias in the Democratic Party Nomination race featuring Rachel Maddow and Geraldine Ferraro. In fact, I was furious and affected enough to actually write in about it.

You had one of the most insightful and thought provoking political commentators on set in Ms. Maddow. I was looking forward to hearing her views on the subject, yet you let the airtime be consumed by the hate-speech of Ms. Ferraro instead of allowing for an intelligent conversation on the topic. Ferraro hogged the spotlight and spewed her venom about Hillary Clinton's inevitable loss to Barack Obama while she blamed everybody for the loss except the people responsible, including herself.

Mr. Obama would be winning this nomination whether he was black, white or yellow and whether he was male, female or neuter. He is winning because he has an as-yet unspoiled and uncompromised view of this nation and its people, because he ran a thorough and well planned campaign, because he refused to take cheap shots at his opponents, and because he is an inspired and inspiring leader. Mrs. Clinton is losing because she ran a poorly planned and ill-advised campaign, she tried to use vicious attacks on her opponents' integrity to turn the tide in her favor, she appealed to the baser instincts of the electorate by insinuating race and gender into the nomination process when it appeared she was losing on the issues and in the hearts and minds of the public, and because she tried to ride her husband's coat-tails into the White House instead of taking the helm herself. She would be losing if she were black or white, male or female, Christian or Pagan, rich or poor.

I suppose I will have to get Rachel Maddow's take on the topic, and the "interview" this morning, from her own radio show/pod cast, since I could not hear her comments over the sour and shrill tirade of the bigot to her right on the couch this morning.

In the future, if you are going to try to appear balanced and fair on the issues we the people so desperately need to have intelligently discussed in the media, I suggest you give equal time to the polite and reasonable guests on your set and tell the impolite and irrational ones to take their turn or simply shut the hell up!

Bitter Voters For Obama

One of the most refreshing things about Barack Obama is his fearlessness when it comes to voicing a hard truth. It's an ice cold glass of unsweetened lemonade: hard to swallow, but unmistakably pure. The truth is, if you aren't bitter, you're probably voting for someone who is going to give us more of what we've been getting all along. And all Clinton and McCain seem to be saying is "Let them eat Lemons."

The G Spot: Inequality: it's the politics, stupid: "When a Republican president is in power, people at the top of the income distribution experience much larger real income gains than those at the bottom--a difference of 1.5 percent per year going from the bottom to the top quintile in the income distribution. The situation is reversed when a Democrat is in power: those who benefit the most are the lower income groups. If you are in the bottom quintile, the difference between having a Democratic or a Republican president in office is an income gain (or loss) of more than 2 percent per year!"

The International Atomic Energy Agency inspectors have repeatedly reported that they have found no evidence of an Iranian nuclear weapons program. Despite all the disinformation from US Gen.

For the first time in my adult life, I can look to a candidate who isn't talking about how HE is going to fix everything, but how we have to do it together.
