email from Alan Grayson asking for donations

http://alangraysonemails.tumblr.com/post/69532904646/please-read-this-if-you-didnt-donate-this-weekend

This year, I have passed more amendments in the U.S. House of Representatives than any other Member of Congress. According to Slate magazine, I’m the most effective Member of Congress.

Last year, I passed no amendments. Why? Because I wasn’t in Congress. The Republicans beat me in 2010, spending more than $5 million in sewer money to inundate my district with lying negative ads.

As I pointed out to you in e-mails on Friday and Saturday, it can happen again. In fact, it looks like it is happening again. The Republicans are already spewing their nasty filth against me, calling me an “Obamacare co-conspirator.”

As I explained in those e-mails, The Washington Post recently reported that the National Republican Congressional Committee is targeting me. That word – “targeting” – is their word, not mine.

When you are a “targeted” House Democrat, it means that the other side is planning to spend $5 million or more to defeat you. You can take my word for it, because it happened to me before. And it worked. I was out of office. For two years, I wandered in the wilderness.

When you are out of office, there ain’t nothing you can do for nobody. Think of liberal lions like Dennis Kucinich, Barney Frank, Russ Feingold. Think of how much they accomplished in office. And then think of what they accomplished afterward.

How much would Elizabeth Warren be able to achieve if she had lost her Senate race?

Since I put out the word on Friday night, we have received over $100,000 in contributions and pledges, from well over 1000 people. That’s great, and I’m grateful. But that’s not enough to counter $5 million. If you didn’t contribute this weekend, then I need you to do that now.

And as I’ve explained before, the most effective way to do that is to make a monthly pledge. Just $10 or $20 or $25 each month – it adds up. It makes a difference, a huge difference. Every dollar counts.

We are fighting for justice, equality and peace. We are paying attention, we are working hard, and we are getting things done. And because of that, I am under attack. I need your help, and I need it today.

I know you are counting on me. Well, it works both ways. I’m counting on you. Please don’t let me down.

Courage,

Rep. Alan Grayson

Is this Sherpa calculator for Obamacare accurate???

Is this Sherpa calculator for Obamacare accurate???

I plugged in for a family of 4: 10,000 40,000 50,000 and 100,000 and it says every time that "you make too much to qualify for ACH and the price they quote is around 7,000 annually for different companies for the cost.

This is nothing like the Keiser foundation's calculator nor what I have heard on this site. The premiums are way high compared to Keiser.

I then did a Google search and found nothing bad about them and Daily Kos saying they were great.

I am confused.

The doctor's office just told me that they were not allowed to call in

an antibiotic because it was FL. law. They are full of crap because my pulmonary doctor will call in a prescription as long as he is in his office and has access to my files.

My family doctor also has access to my files. I have had asthma since I am a little kid and if I go to long without an antibiotic after a bad cold I know I'm headed to the hospital.

I feel as if they are doing this now because they just want the money from you coming in.

I could not find any laws in FL saying this was regulated. It says they are over-prescribed but not that it was illegal.

I sound sick as a dog.

Can we please start a campaign to bring back Martin Bashir?

I just posted this on my FB page after someone brought up Martin Bashir. I'm going to call and write and and join the group, "Bring back Martin Bashir"

We all should start a telephone and writing campaign to get him back on the air. (212) 664-6605 http://www.msnbc.com/contact

I just found this group on their website. You can join and post your comments. It may be good if you say you will no longer watch MSNBC, (whatever, just say it) because companies don't want to loose patrons. http://bashirlive.groups.msnbc.com/

I was going to paste the #1 thread right now about Sarah Palin

and the great beat down given to her by the foreign press. I went to FaceBook and looked her up and realized that she has it set up so you cannot post comments but it is filled with comments!

One wonders where these comments came from when there is no way to add a comment. (Well truth is we all know)

Color me stupid but I have the worse time going backward and figuring out what the actual effect of

a ruling is. Like this last one about Roe. I guess it is not good for pro-choicer but I mean the supreme court upheld something that was banned that had been appealed in a lower court after the state supreme court refused to hear it after the first court found it unconstitutional. And then the Wiley coyote jumped on the log the was moving upstream in the water that was going the opposite direction and everyone from the foot soldiers to the cooks to Nancy the Emperor's daughter ate fig leaves without washing them and ended up with a very severe case of dysentery.

Do I have that right?

Please sign this petition to your congress critters and senators to ban animals from circuses.

http://www.petition2congress.com/11940/requesting-legislation-be-passed-in-usa-to-ban-wild-animals-in-ci/

Here is the letter for the first petition.

Dear White House Members,

I am writing as a constituent to ask for your support of federal legislation to protect wild animals in circuses. Such legislation addresses an important issue that gravely concerns me about the welfare of wild animals forced to perform in traveling circuses.

Careful research and detailed undercover investigations have shown the welfare of animals is unacceptably compromised under the confinement and cruel training practices that are inherent in traveling circuses. Wild, stressed animals in close quarters with the public has proven to be a public safety hazard, with escaped animals both maiming and even killing members of the public, including children. It is also estimated that around 12% of Asian and 2% of African elephants in North America have tuberculosis (TB), a disease transmissible from elephants to humans.

Every time we allow a majestic wild animal to be reduced to a cheap circus trick, we are not just turning a blind eye to cruelty, we are advancing the belief that it is acceptable to be inhumane and setting a poor example for our children. Simply put, animal acts in circuses are antiquated and belong in the past. Entertaining contemporary circuses like Cirque du Soleil prove that the show will go on without abused animals. Cirque du Soleil now has 19 shows in 271 cities, generating an estimated $810 million a year.

Over 20 countries around the world have adopted national legislation prohibiting or restricting the use of wild and exotic animals in circuses, with hundreds of local bans in place worldwide – over 200 in the UK, and hundreds in Europe and South America, as well as Asia. The time is now to act! Please follow the will of your compassionate constituents and be a leader in Congress to work toward protections for circus animals.

Thank you for your public service and I look forward to hearing from you on this important matter.

Sincerely,

Isn't this baby Skate kind of cute, ugly, creepy at the same?



I downloaded it to my Picasa program just to be able to zoom in and look at it. It is the cutest disgusting thing I've ever seen.

Someone posted this Wikipedia page on Buddhism and violence on a thread

over in GD so I went to that Wiki page and it had a big notice on it that said this:


This article has multiple issues. Please help improve it or discuss these issues on the talk page.
This article needs attention from an expert in Terrorism. (April 2013)
This article has an unclear citation style. (July 2013)

So I checked the first footnote and found out that that it linked to a book with an ISBN number but no other information except a title which was Buddihst Warfare

Here is the link to the book: http://www.ibookdb.net/isbn/9780195394849

I don't have an account with Wikipedia but I am going to open one to edit because I am fairly sure that there are a bunch of made up "facts" here but I would love if some people would help and especially if some know how to do it. If you read over at the link they make Buddhism seem as violent as all the other religions and I know that is the complete opposite from the truth.

Thank you all!
