Steal Back The Vote 

29 October 2008 

A Public Service Announcement 




Extraordinarily Important Action Request!                       25 September 2008

Friends --

The Republicans, bless their horned little skulls, are purging
Democrats from the voter rolls by the hundreds of thousands in swing
states.  The source for that rather remarkable assertion is RFK Jr.
Here's a link to the interview:
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2008/9/24/01946/7406/888/608305

Fortunately, there is a website out there where you can confirm
whether your voter's registration is legit.  It's
http://www.voteforchange.com  Go, check your own voter registration,
then send this to everyone you know, particularly new voters!  And if
you're registering people to vote, let them know the score, so that
their vote actually, you know, counts!

After all, it's not who votes that counts, it's who counts the votes!

Thanks everybody!
Bambi.

there's a question, always err on the side of mercy.  There is already
too much justice in the world." - Abraham Lincoln Marovitz's Mother's

ISAAC HAYES

Today we learn that music legend, and actor Isaac Hayes died at age 65.Hayes was found in his home in Memphis, TN, collapsed on the floor near his treadmill.Mr. Hayes was transported to Baptist East Hospital where he was pronounced dead. There is too much that can be said for the accomplishments Mr. Hayes has achieved in the music industry as well as in the movie industry.From albums like “Hot buttered Soul”, “Black Moses” to his famous “Shaft”, Mr. Hayes’ music touched many generations of listeners, in addition to his contributions to others musicians. Let us not forget his voice over role as “Chef” on South Park. I have missed his appearances on South Park and now we will all miss Mr. Hayes.

Fighting breaks out in Georgia with Russia -- what impact with this have on the US?

Additionally, and in my opinion this is not news, but is being covered by the "Media:

John Edwards, potential Democratic Vice Presidential candidate has admitted to an extra-marital affair, but denies fathering a child with mistress. Not my business -- just Mr. and Mrs. John Edwards' business, but the "Media" is going to make this America's business. Get real people, politicians are people too and they make mistakes, have affairs, and more, but is that really our concern?

JOHN MCCAIN

Today Senator John McCain told us that the troop withdrawal from Iraq was "not too important” as long as causalities were not an issue.My mouth just about dropped to the floor.I could not believe that the Senator who wants to be President and supports this unnecessary war continues to “move his lips” (my code for how you can tell he is lying) to form those words.

It is just amazing to me that a man who has been a POW and tortured to the point of 100% disability for five years would even consider supporting such abomniation .Also, I believe he has a son who has been deployed to Iraq. But don’t take my word for it.The DNC has an article on their web site as well as this link to The Washington Post article and Keith Olbermann did a segment on his show as well.
