sad mac

hola, my computer is still in the shop and i miss her so but wanted to update with these quotes from mark twain:

"travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow mindedness."

know anyone who needs a little travel?

"All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence, then success is sure."

seems like some public figures may have taken this quote to heart, huh?!

i am so bummed about mccain making these robot calls telling people obama is associated with terrorists. bill maher was right, when he is president millions of (stupid) americans are going to think a terrorist is president.

they also talked about how the anger hard working americans feel is channeled by republicians into anger against gays, abortion, liberal media etc. . . instead of the fact the republicans have let a huge disparity happen with the distribution of wealth. mccain says on his stump smuggly, obama wants to spread the wealth around, and i tell you hold on to your wallets. fuck n a people, 1% of the population has 90% of the wealth. this is bull shit. marriner s. eccles, fdr's chairman of the fed said:

"as in a poker game, where the chips were concentrated in fewer and fewer hands, the other fellows could stay in the game only by borrowing. when their credit ran out the game stopped."

well the game is stopping people and what are we doing? more people are apathetic than ever and the only people that can make a change are WE THE PEOPLE. i do not believe voting is enough. we need to take a lesson from france and other countries where people demand something from our government and do not just allow the rich, the banks, the insurance companies to take take take and give us nothing in return. the banks have been bailed out yet we are left to our own devices. no health insurance. no access to free college education.

i'm not sure what we can do but i know you can write you senators and congress people. i know if we keep at it something will get done. this apathy has to stop, we have to make our government of the people, by the people, for the people. not just for the rich. i say spread that money around, and he's not talking about the people who even make 6 figures. these is for the very wealthy who can afford to pay more, that 1%. the one john mccain will give tax breaks too because it will trickle down.

i wrote my senator and congress people about this fucking voting bull shit that is completely partisan and completely unfounded. how can we be a beacon of democracy when all our fucking elections are shrouded in fraud. do something!

Wow. That is why I love you, Abby! Awesome piece. I am definitely forwarding it to my parents. Oh, they finally got all of their Obama stickers they ordered through Obama's campaign jazz. So, I have a bundle of Obama '08 stickers to give to people to spread the word. It was so cute to see them come over yesterday with their Obama/Biden bumper sticker on their car and Obama '08 stickers they were wearing. It makes me so proud. Peace.
