Did you forget what today is the anniversary of?

Admittedly I did - until I read this online..

It's the 45th anniversary of the assassination of JFK.

For years I recalled the day and time and the exact feelings of that moment - where I was and who I was with....but now I forgot what day it happened. It's no longer front page news anywhere that I can see. [I saw it as a small mention on a blog.]

We are consumed with the in-coming administration and the guessing game about who gets what post...In this atmosphere it's even odder that we all collectively, it seems, forgot about JFK - weird - because for me and many others of my age the Obama campaign and the feeling of hope and a future is a reminder of what the Kennedy years brought..

Time to Seriously Plan Ahead

There are DEMS and there are dems...

Having a D after your name no longer provides a safe haven! The 2008 election is behind us and many here in Multnomah County Oregon and across the country are thinking about 2010 and 2012. There are dems we might have voted for this time while holding our noses...or while selecting the lesser of two evils...

But now that we have time to's time to find candidates to run against and beat the dems who are not DEMS!

Nationwide today there begins a move to replace the dems who rewarded Lieberman for his support of McCain by allowing him to remain as chair of an important committee.

Locally we have dems who do nothing and keep expecting our support.. NO more...this election we learned again that we the people can actually do something...and we will!

The Senate in D.C. is an old boys club even with some women in it...The female senators begin to act like the men - it's all about power and staying in D.C. Is your Senator one who rewarded Lieberman? If so start thinking about finding a would-be candidate who actually listens to YOU! It's not that hard..They abound in all states...
