The Obama people are just bombarded on my cell phone to help them out. Seriously, why I do want to waste four hours to campaign for Obama or fours day in Las Vegas. Orginally, I thought it would be a closer election until the economy tanked.
Now, the election is virtually over with you and I am focus on the propositions in California than worrying who is going to win for President. If somebody asked to phonebank aganist vote “No” on Prop Six or Prop Nine (http://laist.com/2008/10/24/laist_guide_to_the_elections_propos.php) but I do not need call people in another states for four hours.
I was supposed to Vegas this weekend campaign but I only wanted to go for this weekend. Since it was Halloween in Vegas, I thought it will be fun to party on the strip and see all of the funny people dressed up. I would be in my playa formal outfit and than I would be helping out the campaign on all day Saturday. On Saturday night, I would play a few games of craps at the Slot’s of Fun and than go home. But no, they want to do work there for all four days and I had to work Monday or Tuesday so I declined.
But I get to go to two Halloween Parties instead,
The Associated Press reports that Michigan has a medicial pot law on the ballot. There are many, many states that have these laws on the books. However, when these law have their real teeth is a federal law that allows for medical pot,
I have yet to see a national movement for making the feds change the law. However, by having a national law or an executive order from the Obama administration that prevents DEA raids on these places will really now allow the spirit and intent of these laws to be realize.
It is urgen that we contact our Congressman and Senators for a campaign to legalize medical pot on a nationwide basis. I love to start the campaign but due to the fact I work in a sensitive federal job, I will not work or gift time to this effort. However, I do have the right as a citizen to publish my opinions on these issues
About Autism blogs reports that Dennis Miller decided another offense remarks but autistic people. Dennis Miller should review his material before saying offensive remarks.
Dennis Miller is not in the class of Michael Savage who is right-wing whacko. In my opinion, he allowed to satire and make fun of autistic people but only for the part of comedy. If it beyond light satire and gets into the area of ridicule and mockery, than Dennis Miller should be called out on this issue.
Dennis Miller should read some books on the subject to learn more about the nature of the disorder and how impacts peoples so he does not repeat the same mistake again. He might have the right to claim ignorance but now since you have made the offensive remark, it is time for education and study of autism on his part
We need to stress education and informing people about this disorder. I have it (at a borderline-level) and while I understand that it was a gaffe made by Miller, he needs know self-educate himself about this issue and make a formal apology after doing some research on the issue
CNN reports that most Americans not enough adequate sleep due to money issues. The article states
Keeping up with the rising cost of living and credit card debt were top concerns preventing people from falling asleep, according to the results from ComPsych Corporation, which surveyed employees of companies it serves. Thirty percent of respondents reported worrying about the cost of living while 29 percent cited credit-card debt.
The problem why issue is occuring is because Americans did not properly budget their finances during the good times. To have financial stability, it is important that we learn how to use budget our money and allocate enough money to savings.
Being frugal is an excellent way to cut costs and have less stress. You might have less material possessions or cannot go to the expensive concerts or trips but you will have a peace of mind. And peace of mind helps you sleep better.
If the Democrats are getting 60 seats, one the major reasons is because Senator Ted Stevens is going to the Big House, The New York Times reports that he got convicted on all seven charges which carries a maximum sentence of five years. The Republicans do not have the time to fill the seat with another challenger and so Alaska will have one of its seat turn blue. Finally, this indictments just shows the legacy of corruption in the Republican party. The Democrats do have William Jefferson and Kwame Kilpartrick but the scandals of corruption are far more on the Republican side than the Democratic side.
I was reading a few blogs from Red State and found that a number of people were posting a slew of blogs stating Obama is going to be a socialist. Instead of being levelheaded and use logic to defend the principles of conservatism, the people on Red State have hysteria at the prospect of Dems getting 60 seats in the Senate and winning the White House. Instead of presenting facts, ordinary Republicans are resorting to scare tactics to make people believe in their viewpoint.
I believe that our country should have an honest debate on the issues and the American people should decide which group will best led in America into the next decade. However, using scare tactics like labeling Obama as a socialist or trying to bring up the specter of William Ayers is not going to change the wayI vote
An honest debate would sound like: “Would the average American benefit more from government aid via a progressive tax system and more government regulation or benefit more from a flat tax and less regulations?”. Instead of having this debate, the Republicans are resorting to name-calling and labels like “Socialist”,”Marxist” or “Islam”.
The Republicans use of hysteria and scare-tactics happen because George Bush has destroyed the conservative legacy of Reagan. They are scared to defend the last eight years of the Bush legacy or attacking the Bush legacy as a mockery of their ideology.
They should be focusing on the policy errors made the last administration and take corrective actions to adjust their policy positions. If government regulation is needed as a tool for the market-based system to work more efficiently, than the conservatives should not advocate for more regulations but smarter regulations. Smarter regulations are regulations do not increase the regulatory power of the government but rather focus on how to use regulation as a tool to make markets more efficient and transparent. In addition, the regulations should have internal controls to prevent speculation that results in a constant cycle of boom-bust markets.
They also focus on demonstrating to the American people why the progressive tax system hurts the common interest of the average American. They need to demonstrate how a flat tax, a consumption tax, or a combination of both systems will result in a lower tax burden to the Americans and help struggling Americans help pay their bills. They should also promote a plan to bring financial literacy to poor and lower middle-class to help the people properly invest their money
Instead of doing this, the typical name-calling and labeling tactics are being by the bloggers on Red State. Most people, including Colin Powell and William Weld, are getting this and have towards Obama. These tactics will result in a massive defeat for the GOP in this election and it is partially due to resorting to tactics that are based on logical fallacies. The American people have seen the ruse and now the end of Republican era will be soon over in about eight days from now.
[The idiots at the McCain/Palin rally prevent McCain and Obama has a good conservative/liberal discussion on the issues. It is the dumb base that forces McCain to talk about William Ayers and Rev. Wright. Rather, we should get a debate on whether on a revised free market economics vs full-out Keyensian economics.
I found this video via Mommy Life about smart people who support McCain
We need more people like this to have a honest debate on the issues. What we do not want see is the morons at the rally like this
Compare those people to the morons at the rally. The morons at the rally make a mockery of conservatives and the conservatives should shut these guys down so the smart liberals and conservatives can have a real debate on the issue. And our nation does need a debate on the issues and a not of sideshow of freaks that prevent both sides to have a real discussion on the issues
In the Salt Lake Tribune, I found an article about a mayor getting ticket twice by the same Cop. Here is an excerpt from the article
“MAMARONECK, N.Y. – Can you beat City Hall? The question is pending for a police officer who ticketed his mayor.
In March, Officer Michael Petrillo in this New York City bedroom community pulled over Mayor Kathleen Savolt for using her cell phone while driving.
The mayor argued the incoming call was an emergency and she was in an area where she couldn’t pull over. A judge agreed and dismissed the case Sept. 15, but Petrillo wasn’t done.
That night, he rang Savolt’s doorbell and issued a second ticket, Savolt said Tuesday.
“He said to me, ‘I think the ticket was unfairly dismissed, so I’m issuing a duplicate ticket,”‘ she said. “So then, once I was issued a second ticket, clearly in some people’s minds, it’s not a legal ticket, because the case had been closed.”
This article that the law itself is impartial. This cop does not pull any special favors, takes any bribes, or pull up any BS from city officials. we need Cops like this guy.
