I wanted to highlight Keela’s efforts on this site, so that our troops and everyone who reads here will be aware of another American’s attempt to acknowledge the courage and efforts of America’s military personnel.

Randy Pausch 

This year, I have been inspired by two people who have made a difference in my life and motivated me to begin something I had put off for a long time.One person inspired me to begin sharing with others more, now I would like to share this inspiration with you. I grew up in a rural area of Howard County, Maryland which is now known as Columbia, Maryland. When I learned that a young man whom you will get to know much better if you click the link also grew up in Columbia, MD several years later than I, but he got to experience some of the same things I did. He got some tragic news in 2006 but he did not let it stop him. Please take the time to go to Randy Pausch’s site; take the time to view “The Last Lecture” and then pass his story on to others.

 Senator Barack Obama

Senator Barack Obama is another person who has inspired me this year.It is very refreshing to hear someone speak with authority the thoughts that run through your own mind.Someone who inspires you to once again get involved in the politics and running of our government; someone who says one thing and then acts on that thing exactly the way he told you he would is one of the freshest things to happen to politics since Bobby Kennedy.He appears very honest; something we haven’t had in politics, but what is needed now more than ever.In light of the recent revelations from Scott McClellan's book, the recent release of the Senate Report on Pre War Intelligence and most recently, The 35 Articles of Impeachment for President Bush by Senator Dennis Kucinich, we need honesty and transparency in the White House now more than ever.Senator Obama upon receiving the presumptive Democratic nomination for President made a major change to contributions to the Democrat National Committee when he announced that the DNC would not accept PAC monies last week, which is consistent with his own Primary Campaign Contributions.This was a very impressive beginning of the type of change he tells us that he wants to make in Washington, D.C.

Please take the time to research both of the candidates, especially review their voting records carefully before you make your decision for the November General Elections.

    Senator John McCain

 Now, we know that they lied.Four thousand plus American military and civilian personnel have lost their lives in Iraq.Over twenty thousand American military personnel have been injured in Iraq.We don’t have an accurate count on the number of Iraq civilians killed or injured, but we do know that alliance personnel members have been killed and or injured. Bush forces this war down the throats of Americans every day by spending ten billion American tax dollars a month in Iraq.John McCain supports this war and at each town hall meeting he has had and in every speech he is forcing you to continue listening to the lies about continuing this war in Iraq.If you ever get the chance, ask him WHY?And don’t let him spin his way out of not giving an HONEST REAL ANSWER that you are willing to accept.We need to stop this war now.Also ask him how he can receive one hundred percent disability insurance payments from the military each month  http://www.johnmccain.com/mccainfinancial/while he has been working as a U.S. Senator. Don’t normal people go to jail for defrauding Disability Insurance?And because he is receiving these payments for a disability he received during Vietnam, how can he deny comparable benefits to the troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan?And don’t forget, John McCain knows the truth about this Iraq war.

          TEE SHIRTS FROM HELL -- 

 

A Vietnam Era Marine whom I respect and love has the most cynical sense of humor of anyone I know.  He has a lot of favorite sites however; the following link is one of his favorites and has fast become one of ours.  It is most definitely an Adults only location; could be considered offensive to the more sensitive web crawler; and definitely NO KIDS.  But I do enjoy this site and invite you to browse with our advisory in mind.

          Troop Withdrawal from Iraq  

      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 say these words. 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
