So it is my firm belief that it is truly everyones responsibility to help make this world a better place and that can only happen by taking part in the effort. It is our duty to uphold our law makers and politicians to the promises that they have made. There is one great organization called Rock The vote. I have been following this organization for a little over a year and they really come up with some great things.
Rock the vote has become a meeting ground online for people express and share their concerns over the tomorrow that is to come. It has become a place where those concerned with the pressing times of the current recession can come and voice their opinions. It is this voice that is needed and will have great impacts on our lives, but we need those voices and we need people to speak up.
While a senator may not listen to one voice, one email or one letter, if millions send him one each they will be forced to listen! Thats what Rock The Vote does, they organize and give direction. Just imagine a million letters pouring into to one single persons desk with a single message with direct objectives it would unignorable!
This our country, our children’s and grand children’s country. What will we hand over to them? A country torn by poverty and chaos which is slowing becoming reality or a world where they want to be. It is our duty and I strongly encourage you to check out the site, join. Don’t participate at first thats fine, but Rock The Vote presents a lot of good points and opinions which I believe will compel you to participate eventually.
I just recently received an email from an organization maybe some you have heard of and quite possibly were a part of in some during this last Presidential election, “Rock The Vote.” For last couple months they have been sending reminders to vote and things like that for the presidential election but now they have cast their sights on Darfur. Darfur is a small African country in south of Africa where civil war has been a constant for well ever. Anyways they are trying to rally support saying, “Lets send a message to Mr. Obama to stop this genocide from happening.” You know, I agree this tragedy is terrible, I have been watching the situation and gone to their site where they have satellite photos depicting the damages. If you would like to see the images or visit the site its called Eyes On Darfur. To get an explanation of the violent crimes taking place from Wikipedia.
Anyways its a horrible situation but I am sorry personal thoughts are that we don’t need to be lobbying the President one way when there are to many issues on his plate that are affecting us directly. Secondly this is not our problem, if you research it, that are has had civil unrest since the beginning of time and always will. You may pause the violence but after time the government is not strong enough and it will all break out again. In addition we are already in a two front war and don’t need to make that a three front war. We spend to much on the wars we are still fighting right now whether or not we are still considered to be at war doesn’t matter because the money keeps on flowing out of our pockets and into their mouths. I have problem helping people but right now that is the least of our problems if we can’t even help ourselves and that is my issue with it.
Again before everybody tries to jump my junk, I do not, let me repeat that, I do not approve of the violence wish I could do something but right now is just not a good time for us to be addressing this issue.
Yeah, so I hope everyone is as ecstatic as I am that we now have a brand new president. It is my sincere belief that he really believes what he says unlike others. Now I know everyone has got benevolent agendas so the question really comes down to, who’s agenda is the most factual based upon their words and I definitely think that it was Obama’s words that had the most sincerity.
I was enthused to see that over 4 million new voters went out and voted this year. So many records were made this year. I forget the one statistic but according to CNN no one has ever won by that big of a lead in a presidential election. Also record high of 4 million voters just to name a few. So I am proud the people made the right choice I think and hopefully we will stick to it and make sure that he is doing his job the way he said.
Just because voting comes around once a year does not mean that it is the only time that we can voice our opinions. In fact quite the opposite, we should always be voicing our opinions because they do matter and if done right people will listen. Power in numbers, power in numbers. Anyways just wanted to post up a little something sharing my enthusiasm and optimism for this coming year. Really believe that we will see changes just remember be patient and stay on top of these people after all it is us that pays their checks and elect them to be there so we should be holding them accountable to their words!
The time has come people! Today is our day to make our voices heard! I strongly encourage everyone to get out there and vote. It is about time that something changes! I live in Michigan one of the worst economic states at the current time so I have seen first hand the repercussions of doing nothing. While a president can not change the world by himself, it is a start. It is the government as a whole that needs to step up and we must be the ones to influence that and make sure that they are doing their jobs! So get out there and vote!
Once a year we have a chance to voice our opinion but it doesn’t have to be once a year only. I encourage everyone to be more involved with local governments and such. It is our world and our life’s and we need to act like it is and take control and stop letting others wise talk us but have totally different agendas.
So early this morning I was listening to the radio and a story was being discussed about wearing political clothing in which a McCain & Palin shirt was considered racist and another shirt with the phrase “Obama terrorist”, which caused both children to suffer detentions, either way though when I went to look for information on this I found this tape from CNN where a group of protestors tried to stop Palin convoy and police brutally tackled these people just dragging them. In one instance it even looks like a cop pulls out a weapon perhaps a baton to attack people who never made aggressive moves torward the police officers. Somewhat unnecessary if you ask me but take a look and check out the video for your self at CNN.
Problem is none of them will ever get in trouble because the higher people are going to say the situation was necessary plus they will never own up to their people doing anything wrong.
Justifies my accusations that McCain is a liar and thief check it out full article at Wikipedia
The Keating Five were five United States Senators accused of corruption in 1989, igniting a major political scandal as part of the larger Savings and Loan crisis of the late 1980s and early 1990s. The five senators, Alan Cranston (D-CA), Dennis DeConcini (D-AZ), John Glenn (D-OH), John McCain (R-AZ), and Donald W. Riegle (D-MI), were accused of improperly intervening in 1987 on behalf of Charles H. Keating, Jr., chairman of the Lincoln Savings and Loan Association, which was the target of a regulatory investigation by the Federal Home Loan Bank Board (FHLBB). The FHLBB subsequently backed off taking action against Lincoln.
Lincoln Savings and Loan collapsed in 1989, at a cost of over $3 billion to the federal government. Some 23,000 Lincoln bondholders were defrauded and many elderly investors lost their life savings. The substantial political contributions that Keating had made to each of the senators, totalling $1.3 million, attracted considerable public and media attention. After a lengthy investigation, the Senate Ethics Committee determined in 1991 that Alan Cranston, Dennis DeConcini, and Donald Riegle had substantially and improperly interfered with the FHLBB in its investigation of Lincoln Savings, with Cranston receiving a formal reprimand. Senators John Glenn and John McCain were cleared of having acted improperly but were criticized for having exercised “poor judgment”.
All five of the senators involved served out their terms. Only Glenn and McCain ran for re-election, and they both succeeded. McCain would go on to become the Republican nominee for president in 2008.
Here is another article about how this information came out. Apparently someone did some digging on “Joe the plumber”, only to find that he is a relative of Keating who was subsequently pardoned by Mr. McCain and four others in the 90’s. Heres the article
