Want to know the impact of Obama's tax plan for your family? Here you go. James's blog Comments During twilight I know, it's not dark yet. But it's headin' that way. :) _____________________________________ Jesus Swept, so you can come clean. Available in December from Kitsune Books. Is the live blog working? I posted a comment...but nothing happened, it didn't show up. Do I need to sign up? NCDem Amy on YouTube Cool tax gizmo I just emailed it to every Republican in my addy book who has told me that Obama would raise their taxes. Is the country is too racist for the Democratic Slate? I have heard over the course of the primary and now the convention, that the country is filled with voters who have hidden racist inclinations so that it will make this election a failure. I think there are only two ways we can lose this election? if Democrats wimp out and don't put out the effort, or if the Thieves triumph over Truth and steal the election. But I admit i do not know whether racism is going to stop this ticket? TurnNCBlue I worry myself too I think this will be another close election like the two previous, as far as the national ticket is involved. Although the wind is at our back, we cannot take anything for granted. I be glad when it is all said and done Didn't want to follow the Democratic National Convention however . . . "I swore never to be silent whenever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Elie Weisel "I swore never to be silent whenever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Elie Weisel I'm compulsively watching the convention - streaming it at work when I can. This is the big one for me. I should have taken vacation and gone out there. What a blast it looks like everyone is having. But I admit i do not know whether racism is going to stop this ticket? I hope not. This is the best ticket we've had in a long time. Obama is qualified, not just be experience but by - forgive me from stealing a phrase from MLK,Jr - the content of his character. Same for Biden. These are two men cut from the same cloth. They have endured incredible hardship in their lives, have overcome that hardship and gone on to live their American Dreams. They have good judgment and wisdom. As I watch the smiling optimistic faces at the convention, I can't imagine not being "fired up, ready to go". And I don't see how the Republicans will match this energy next week. That will be a telling thing. I hope the Republican convention is full of excitement.... because if not it might be because Hurricane Gustav HAS become a Cat 3 Hurricane and slammed into NOLA, Mississippi, or East Texas. Heck, having lived in FL and tracked many a hurricane, it could even cut back through South Florida, unlikely but not impossible. From National Geographic. Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over. -me Raining on parade When that preacher was praying for rain on the convention he probably didn't specify which convention because he assumed God was on his side. gallup bump before the Obama Night Gallup bump so that Obama holds a six point lead. Do we know that that means a landslide? now, of course, it might not stay at six points, but this was before the speech tonight. I am suspicious that the media keeps telling us about the poll..the poll that poll. What if you start looking at NY Times electoral colllege vote, or other electoral college data> different story. He has an 84% chance of winning the 270 votes needed. And McCain's chances are not so good. So dont llisten to every poll. And Have you watched all the racist behavior in Denver? no, I have seen no racist animosity. I have seen people who just flat out have forgotten to be racist. So lets get some positive thinking going. TurnNCBlue McCain is having to beg and borrow people to fill up Dayton. Where he will announce his VP pick. He can't fill the room. Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over. -me Via Twitter... Marc Ambinder is saying his sources say Romney will be in Dayton tomorrow. McCain/Romney = +/- 14 houses. Wow McCain/Romney = between 225 and 285 million dollars in net worth Obama/Biden = under 1 million in net worth The Median Net Worth in America is around $100,000 "Keep the Faith" "Keep the Faith"
