100 Days

If time is the currency of life, we should be spending like there's no tomorrow. Because unless we turn the American ship of state in a new direction, we, dear friends, are are totally screwed. According to the Internets, (you know, the Tubes), here's how much time we have at our disposal:

100 days.
3 months, 8 days
8,640,000 seconds
144,000 minutes
2400 hours
14 weeks

Fourteen weeks. Doesn't sound like a very long time. What are you going to do? I mean exactly: what are you going to do? Give us all the gory details.

Here's what I'm going to do.

1. Write John Edwards a thank you note. He made a mistake and he fixed it. Imagine what this world would look like if all our elected officials operated that way. He listened. He responded with integrity and grace. He won my confidence.

2. Nail down a list of top progressives running for office this fall (incumbents and challengers) who most need our help ... and maybe harass Lance into getting a BlueNC Act Blue page posted to make it easy to contribute to their campaigns.

3. Tell at least one person each day why Virginia Foxx, Charles Taylor and Robin Hayes are bad for North Carolina and the country.

4. Write at least one letter to the editor each week about the risks to North Carolina of a Republican legislature.

5. Keep up daily pressure on Art "the Puppetmaster" Pope so that candidates are either embarrassed or ashamed to accept his corporate backing.

I'm not sure if these things are the best use of my 8 million seconds or not, and I'm totally open to other suggestions, requests and ideas. And maybe, just maybe, you'll tell us hat you're going to do, too.

(This took more than 3000 of my seconds. Grrrrr.)



Kissell stopped at the Cumberland Co. reunion yesterday. Nice guy. I wish I could vote for him (I'm in McIntyre's district).

I'm glad you got to meet him.

He's getting out and about in his district. Cumberland County is broken into 2 or 3 districts? I can't remember.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

OK...here goes....

1. I will write/do whatever it takes (legally and morally acceptable) to get Larry Kissell elected.

2. I will work with our citizen journalists to either interview or do an introductory piece on every Democrat running for NC House, NC Senate or US Congress.

3. I will continue working with the StateRootsProject to develop the NC group at FireDogLake.

4. I will dig through every donation and every vote to keep Robin Hayes on his toes and hopefully off balance.

5. I will do the same for Vernon Robinson or will assist others who undertake the project.

6. I'm sure I'm leaving something out.....but I'll do that too when I remember it.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

Great list, SD

And I'll do anything you ask me to do to help you do all the things you're doing, if you remember them.


The Indy front paged at DKos

McJoan is singing the praises of the Independent Weekly and its article on net neutrality. Cool

Well...she at least mentions it. It's an article that ran in the Indy first and then was updated in another publication.

saw that

felt unreasonably proud for someone who has no connection other than geography.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

I don't even have the geographical

connection....I've never physically held one....just got excited for no reason, I guess. ;)

My List of things "To Do" before the mid-terms

1. I will finish and post on my 3 candidates for the Citizen Journalist project

2. I will attend all local dem meetings in Moore County

3. I will join the Dem Women chapter in Moore County

4. I will try to build a local lte team and educate as many as will listen on the importance of political activism

5. I will continue to do whatever I can to help Larry Kissel get elected and remove Robin Hayes!

6. Most importantly, I will continue to visit bluenc, read the posts, leave comments and learn citizen activism from the best in North Carolina (thank you girls and guys, you all are very inspiring!)

Great list!

Woo Hoo! We'll help all we can.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

You go momo!

Great list.

And if I may be so presumptions as to comment on the third word in your 4th item. Try.

Thanks Anglico...I WILL

build a lte team and educate as many as will listen on the importance of political activism!



I wish my consulting clients would embrace "will" instead of "try" with so much enthusiasm! You rock, Momo!
