Etch these photos in your memory

Show these photos to all who think McCain is a maverick, that McCain is different from Bush..

We must keep reminding voters that McSame is the SAME and will be a shrub 3rd term...

This after the shrub lied about McSame's daughter!

And this as New Orleans drowned..

And we must also remind everyone that McSame is a KEPT man...his wife pays the bills for his campaign planes [they are hers] and she refuses to release her tax returns....There must be something more in those returns that she does not want anyone to know.

We wonder if McSame knows anything about her money or if he is just content being a KEPT man.....maybe he likes the feeling of being kept - it may remind him of when he was KEPT [in Vietnam] - more Stockholm Syndrome?

McSame pretends he is not beholden to why are so many of them part of is campaign? and why do they lobby for terrorists?

Another great speech

It's been so nice to hear political people who not only enthuse, have great ideas, present a future that is for ALL Americans - but they speak English - they don't mangle the language!

Here is yet another stirring speech - this one by John Edwards...

Tuesday, May 13, 2008


This has always been one of my favorite poems...and Yertle the Turtle one of my favorite books...They have the same theme...and both seem pertinent in political seasons....

Here is Ozymandias:

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them on the sand,
Half sunk, a shatter'd visage lies, whose frown
And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamp'd on these lifeless things,
The hand that mock'd them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains: round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare,
The lone and level sands stretch far away

How Low Can He Go?

Ah but it's not the limbo - it's the shrub's approval - which hit a new low today...Only 31 % of the people approve of what he is doing.

Click on the link and look back over his reign of terror and see how his approval has been dropping.

And McSame wants to run on these coattails? Go for it might wind up with 31 % of the vote!

McSame protest today

No that many people there but it was at 3 PM and for that time it was a good turnout. We had signs and voices...

The only downside was that a certain political presidential candidate's supporters saw this as a chance to do their own thing by bringing campaign signs...

Bad taste - but what else can one expect from a campaign that is 20 million in debt and needs free TV time...[and I got a dirty look for suggesting that : - )] FYI - they were the only ones there who had signs and handouts for ANY candidate.

McSame in Portland Today

Here is his tough schedule!

At 5 p.m., a $10,000 per person photo reception, followed by a $2,300 per person VIP reception and a $1,000 general reception.
At 7 p.m. a Victory Dinner that costs $33,100 per person.

Victory Dinner? What victory? And 33k to eat with this old [and kept] man? YUK!

What fools these aging repugs be : - 0

Again my caveat - I am almost as old as McCain - but Democrats age well - because we have more fun ...and we don't waste brain cells denying reality : - )

Protest his visit - 3 PM near the airport Sheraton

Mother's Day - the original

My annual tribute to the original Mother's Day

How did we get away from the original intent of Howe's mother's day proclamation to a now corporate event of sell sell sell and buy buy buy? Oh and do not forget to make those intercepted phone calls....

I cry for those mommy's who have lost their children in the mad shrub's so-called war....

Let's take back mother's day when we take back our country from these #$%#&$*&(^

Mother's Day Proclamation - 1870
by Julia Ward Howe

Arise then...women of this day!
Arise, all women who have hearts!
Whether your baptism be of water or of tears!
Say firmly:
"We will not have questions answered by irrelevant agencies,
Our husbands will not come to us, reeking with carnage,
For caresses and applause.
Our sons shall not be taken from us to unlearn
All that we have been able to teach them of charity, mercy and patience.
We, the women of one country,
Will be too tender of those of another country
To allow our sons to be trained to injure theirs."

From the voice of a devastated Earth a voice goes up with
Our own. It says: "Disarm! Disarm!
The sword of murder is not the balance of justice."
Blood does not wipe our dishonor,
Nor violence indicate possession.
As men have often forsaken the plough and the anvil
At the summons of war,
Let women now leave all that may be left of home
For a great and earnest day of counsel.
Let them meet first, as women, to bewail and commemorate the dead.
Let them solemnly take counsel with each other as to the means
Whereby the great human family can live in peace...
Each bearing after his own time the sacred impress, not of Caesar,
But of God -
In the name of womanhood and humanity, I earnestly ask
That a general congress of women without limit of nationality,
May be appointed and held at someplace deemed most convenient
And the earliest period consistent with its objects,
To promote the alliance of the different nationalities,
The amicable settlement of international questions,
The great and general interests of peace.
