The politicians are at it again. The two problems facing us today are healthcare reform and what to do about Afghanistan. Healthcare reform is not for us but for insurance and pharmaceutical companies. The latest number I heard is 70% of americans want the Public Option. Several democratic senators voted against the Public Option. If the Democrats can't stick together in this battle, it will never pass with benefits for us. And if this is true, forget the whole thing. I'm in the donut hole and I'm so disgusted the way the congress sold us out to the drug companies. Please don't less this type of sellout again!!!

There is a lot happening in the world of politics. Is it really possible that health reform may be happening before I die? I would love to see that happen. President Obama is going full speed ahead and I love it. All you hear from people is that he is moving too fast. 3 or 4 decades waiting for health care I would say is not moving too fast! Judge Sonia Sotomayor looks like the next Supreme Court Justice. I watched some of her hearing and believe she is very qualified. I wish her all the best in her endeavor. I'm very happy with President Obama. He lives his life with no pretensions. I am so grateful Bush is out of office though I am disappointed that investigations on torture and why the Iraq war was started on lies. Bush and Cheney, so far, have literally gotten away with murder. I believe that is a bad precedent? What do you think?

It has been awhile since I signed in. President Obama is our new president. So far, I think he is doing a geat job. Every time Obama deals with the Republicans, he's tough as nails. I just love that. He stands very tall, truthful, and feisty. I pray everyday his policies succeed while the Republicans want him to fail. Obama has more feelings than the whole congress. Thank god the americans saw what he can possibly do, and are giving him time to show this. Thank God for the American people. All I can say about George W. Bush is GOOD RIDDANCE!!!!

It's been 5 months since I've written. Obama is the democratic candidate and McCain the republican candidate. The lies are flying and I don't mean Obama. The republicans play dirty all the time. I hate to be negative, but I think Obama is going to lose. His big mistake is not asking Hillary to be his vice president. I'm assuming that he didn't ask Hillary. Many people told Obama that he won't believe how dirty the republicans are. And they do play really dirty!

No nominee for the democrats as of today. Everyday Obama whines about what Hillary says and the ads she approves. She comes back with "if you can't take the heat, stay out of the kitchen". I don't know who is going to win. As long as it is not John McCain. Richard Mellon Scaife has endorsed Hillary. Scaife is the guy who spent all kinds of money to fund investigations of the Clintons. I wonder what he is up to. Maybe he thinks if Hillary is the nominee John McCain can beat her easier. It really doesn't look very good for her right now. But in politics you never know what can happen until it does. Personally, I would like it if Clinton and Obama join forces and the Democratic ticket is Clinton/Obama. Eight years of Hillary and then 8 years of Obama.
That would really be great!!!! I really don't think that will happen. I'm just doing a little dreaming.

This election is unbelievable! The Clintons are up to something and I'm not sure what. The Democratic party is in a pickle right now. At this point, neither of the candidates can get enough delegates to win the nomination before the convention in August. Maybe by insinuating this idea Hillary thinks it will somehow send votes her way. How, I don't know. Florida and Michigan need to determine how they are going to get their delegates counted. That Florida seems to be a big problem when it comes to voting time. Florida needs to overhaul its election process. What is their problem? Obama is off message. He spends his time reacting to Hillary Clinton's campaign instead of promoting his agenda. Obama is playing in the big league now.

Well Tuesday March 4 is a big day for Hillary Clinton. That Obama stands at the podium and mesmerizes the crowd. That's the difference between Hillary and Obama. How do you fight back? I just really don't know. If I were Hillary, I really don't know how I would deal with this.
Hillary certainly is finding out who her friends are and who aren't her friends. These politicians
turn on each other at the drop of a hat. Let's look at Rep. John Lewis who marched with Martin Luther King. His superdelegate vote was for Hillary until Obama became popular. Then he switched from Clinton to Obama and he's been a friend for years. To me that shows the man has no character. And he marched with Dr. King!!!

Things are looking very badly for Hillary. Obama is wiping the floor with her and it is sad to watch. She has lived her whole life for this opportunity. She is being abandoned by so many people. There is no doubt that she is more qualified than Obama, but the large majority of americans are looking for charisma over experience. How in the world does Hillary handle that?
I'm no strategist, but I know it will take a miracle for Hillary to overcome Obama. Hillary is coming to RI this weekend. Maybe we will go and see her.

Hillary came to RI today. There was a rally at Rhode Island College. I decided not to go. She and Obama are really getting into it. She was furious about some mailers his campaign was sending out. It looks very bad for Hillary. Ralph Nader announced his candidacy today on Meet the Press. Ralph is 74! I was so surprised at his age. I've got to check out his website.

Barack Obama won the South Carolina primary today. The economy has been taking a nosedive and the government is considering rebates for some americans. I don't know yet if seniors who are on Social Security will get a rebate. That would be very nice. Bill Clinton seems to be causing some problems while he is campaigning for his wife. It seems like there are a lot of people out there who seem to know that Bill should stop what he is doing. The media keeps trying to interject race in the campaign. Not Obama, Clinton, or Edwards. I believe Hillary Clinton would be doing better if Edwards weren't in the race. I wonder what the Democrats think about this situation.

Politics can be so brutal! Senator Clinton is getting a raw deal right now. Barack Obama is turning everything upside down. People are really drawn to him. I would love to see him in person and have a chance to feel what people are feeling from him.

I must talk now about Naomi Wolf's book "The End of America". She writes about fascism and how democracies fall prey to it. As I read the book, I can't help but identify this wonderful country with her book. She writes about ten steps dictators take to bring a country under his/her control. Some of these steps have started already in America. I know that sounds hard to believe but it is true. The steps already taken by the Bush administration are involving an external and internal threat, establish secret prisons, develop a paramilitary force (e.g. Blackwater), surveil ordinary citizens, infiltrate citizen group, and arbitrarily detain and release citizens. When in ameica would there be a debate about whether we torture or should we torture? Yet that has been going on for several years. This is not the america I was born and raised in. And I find it very, very sad!

I must get this off my chest. The Democrats have got to be the most ignorant or foolish bunch I have ever seen. They are letting Bush make fools out of them. Do either of the leaders have any backbone? What about the american people? In one breath we are told Bush needs billions for his war and then we hear $31 million has been paid out for something in Iraq that never happened.
It is so distressing!!! Sometimes I get so upset I can't keep two thoughts together. And I truly feel powerless!

Saturday, December 08, 2007

I have not been using my blog for a couple of months. What is going on is just what I thought would happen, though not this soon. Bush and his cronies are beginning to be exposed. We, the american public, are beginning to see/hear the criminal behavior by this administration. I am one american who doesn't want to give up one civil right to be "safe". Without a doubt, Bush has been stepping on the Constitution and ignoring the rule of law. The secrecy of this administration is scarier than the terrorists. We are in the middle of a presidential race. Right now of the Democrats, It is between H. Clinton and B. Obama. I really don't care who wins the primary as long as it is a Democrat. 23 Republicans in Congress are not going to run again. What do they know that we don't?

Saturday, October 27, 2007

Although I haven't written in awhile, I have stayed informed. Like many people out there, I am very disappointed in the Democrats. I just don't know what they are doing. Why don't they end this god forsaken war. They can do it by pulling back on the purse strings. Americans, at least a lot of americans, want this war over. The Democrats will be in a much better place when it comes to the elections. Why don't they see this, or do they? If they do, then what are they up to?"

Mr. Bush's true colors are showing more and more. The compassionate conservative doesn't care about children or he would have made his statement as a "fiscal" conservative on another bill and not SCHIP. He is so stupid and mean-spirited. His karma will get to him someday. I hope I will be able to see it happen. He has had to replace quite a few people in his administration so far.
The man is so stubborn he can't see the forest for the trees. I talk to people everyday and when I wear my sweatshirt that says "Bush lied. Thousands died. Impeach" people are totally disgusted with him and can't wait for his term to be over. Neither can I!!!!

I'm afraid the Democrats are blowing it. They are in charge, but you would never know it. If they would stick together about the war and do what the people want, such as, GET OUT OF IRAQ, The people would be behind them 100%. Why don't they see this? I was talking to my sister last week about security, civil rights, and the war. I told her I'm horrified about the war and our civil rights being taken from us one at a time. She proceeded to say she doesn't care about her civil rights as long as she is safe. I told her we can be safe and still have our civil rights.
It wasn't an either or situation. She said she didn't care as long as she was safe. I could hardly believe what I was hearing. My sister is the type of person the Republicans can put the fear of god in. I must realize there are many of my sisters out there.

Well, Karl Rove is the next to go. He was a protege of Lee Atwater who died from cancer fairly young and asked for forgiveness on his dying bed from all the people he hurt playing dirty tricks in political campaigns. Lee Atwater's legacy is how Karl Rove has conducted himself. Rove, Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld. What a disgusting crew! Thank God presidents can only stay in office for 2 terms. Imagine what this country would be like if Bush could stay another term? The thought is positively revolting. On 8/25, there will be a march at Kennebunkport against the war. The people who coordinated this event have invited antiwar people, environmental activists, Progressives and other organisations that are against the war in Iraq.

Not long after we went to Afghanistan and defeated the Taliban, the Afghan army was started and from what I know it seems to be a success. So now I ask why is this not happening in Iraq? The sectarian violence is causing this problem, mainly, not Al Qaeda as Bush is so fond of saying. The man needs to choke on his words. So many lies come out of his mouth it's unreal. My latest read is "Hubris" by Michael Isikoff and David Corn. I've read about one quarter of it so far and it's very informative. Donald Rumsfeld was a terrible Secretary of Defense. I don't know who made the worst decisions, him, Bush, or Cheney.
The Republicans have the Democrats on the run by constantly saying the Democrats are doing nothing when it's the Republicans who are using the filibuster to stop the votes on bills. The Democrats must get this information out there so the people know what is really going on.

Thursday, July 26, 2007

I have a good feeling something is going to happen to put the Bush regime on notice that the party is over. It's time to pay the piper. The Republicans are still trying to protect Bush instead of doing what is right for the country. I don't know if any of these politicians do what's right for the country first and party second. That sounds so naive. Isn't it every person for themselves? What is happening to this wonderful country? Will we be able to save it?

Monday, July 23, 2007

Right now the CNN/YouTube debate is on the TV. Many good questions are being asked. The democrats are being pelted with question about why they haven't ended the war in Iraq. The democrats could easily end the war by refusing to fund it. Otherwise they aren't easily able to pass legislation to end the war while the republicans are playing obstructionists and not allowing an up or down vote on the bill. I don't think a lot of american people understand this. The democrats need to get this information out there to the public. Bush has told the Justice Dept. not to allow the subpoenas issued by the committees under the guise of "executive priviledge". The criminal Attorney General Gonsalves will do whatever Bush says, no matter what. Bush and cronies have made a mockery or our laws and are getting away with it. This is what I don't understand. How they are able to get away with this behavior. Senator Feingold is going to introduce a censure of the president and vice president again. He introduced one about a year ago and it went nowhere. I would much rather see impeachment proceedings started. I know I'm dreaming, but you never know.

Well Libby's sentence was commuted by Bush. What a surprise! Before Bush leaves office, he'll be pardoned. He did a good job as their fallguy. The Republicans are stopping an up or down vote on the Levin-Reed bill that will bring the troops home by April 2008. This bill sounds good to me. The Republicans are not interested in bringing the troops home.

Everyone knows that Bush and Cheney are breaking the law every chance they get. And no one is doing anything about it. By that I mean congress is doing nothing to bring these men to justice.
I just don't understand it! Now Bush is going to veto a bill that continues to insure children who otherwise would not be insured. Why would he do something as uncompassionate as that. I want to see Bush be held accountable and I pray for it every day.

I don't like what is happening to my country. It's becoming unrecognizable. Who do you believe? They all lie so much! I think the 2008 election is the one so far that a third party candidate stands a chance. The country is disgusted with both parties, more than they realize.

I am a delegate for Unity08. It is an up and coming new Progressive party.

Scooter Libby 's sentence was commuted today. I think they were afraid if Libby went to jail he would really start talking. Bush and Cheney couldn't let that happen. Bush's terms in office have been a disgrace! Even many conservatives are fed up with him. Let's hope many Republicans go down with him.
