register to vote

October 6th is the deadline to register to vote in his upcoming election. Don't delay!

Wednesday, September 24, 2008

If you haven't registered to vote, please check out We all need to work to help our country get on the right track; voting is our way of saying we don't support the administration or what they stand for. If you need some reminding of the last 8 years - here's a run down:

Lying and starting a catastophic, unending war, Guantanamo, Abu Ghraib, Blackwater," Mission Accomplished", waterboarding, black sites, extraordinary rendition, Halliburton, no-bid contracts, Walter Reed VA Hospital, recess appointments, civil rights erosion, warrantless wiretapping, fired US attorneys, Valerie Plame, KATRINA, doubling national debt, denying global warming, the Patriot act, voter fraud, and the worst financial crisis since the great depression.

And if you think the McCain/Palin will be different, read up on their methods of policy and government. Senator McCain has voted with the Bush administration 90% of the time. Governor Palin's husband has just refused to respond to a subpoena in Alaska. Since when can a person not respond? Only if you're part of the Bush administration. As far as I know they haven't been sworn in yet, and they're already acting like the current administration.

We need a fundamental change in our country, and we need to take responsibility and

Kalamazoo flooding

An amazing amount of water came down last weekend. The remains of
hurricane Gustav were devastating to some parts of Kalamazoo. My
friend Cary's house was completely surrounded by water; this is a
picture taken from the 4th floor at Bronson Hospital looking down
Crosstown Parkway.


Doesn't she look great?!

Republican VP choice

How can this woman want to be a VP when she has a 5 month old baby
with special needs and a 17 year old with needs of her own? Is this
the time to embark on a move acrossed country to a all-consuming job?
What happened to " family values"? Is it ok to not have an abortion
and not care what happens to them after?

I think this is the worst sort of political pandering. Choosing a
woman that won't do anything for women, but using her to attract
disgruntaled Hillary supporters.

I'm so angry with this campaign - I can't believe that there are
people out there listening to this and thinking this is where we need
take the country.

We're here in the Ojai, Santa Barbara area seeing Erin & Zac and

Japanese tea garden

We spent Sunday with the boy, walking through Golden Gate Park and
hiking in the Presidio. Stacey caught up with us that evening and we
had a great dinner at Globe.
