a few random thoughts...

first of all please bear with me.. I'm not a super experienced poster.. just something that i have observed over the last few years, and a conclusion... also i did not know where to post so if its in the wrong forum, mods please move it, thanks

first of all as i'm sure most of you aware.. there is a real effort going on nationwide to limit voting participation in the 2012 election cycle, as well as beyond, by the right wing in this country.. this is of course to break the back of the Obama campaign, and the Democratic party this cycle, and going forward.. the demographics of course favor the Democrats, and so voter suppression has ben adopted.. the theme of (non existent) voter fraud has been adopted..

one can look back to the U.S. attorneys scandal of 06 to see Karl Rove, and others selling this "problem".. it always seemed to me that Karl Rove needed to brought up under oath on this matter but it was not to be..

fast forward to 2012.. again the right wingers, pushed this issue, this time with ALEC's finger prints all over it.. the process was accelerated by the right wingers electoral victories in 2010.. a very large percentage of the Tea Party and other right wingers are associated with ALEC.. thus insuring that companion legislation hit in a number of states at once.. OK at this point this is just old news, though pretty much ignored by the main stream media, we on the left have been paying a lot of attention, thanks largely to Rachel Maddow, and others..

one thing that frankly has amazed me these last few weeks, is the large exodus of corporate sponsors from ALEC.. attributed to Color of Change and others (congratulations !!).. okay heres where the tin foil hat comes in.. notice the Voter registration issue is moving rapidly toward center stage..

for those who may be better versed in our legal system than myself.. is it possible that the DOJ could be quietly pushing a RICO case against ALEC?.. something along the lines of conspiracy to deny voting rights.. just a thought... after all the corporate folks sure abandon ALEC in a hurry

if so this could be a blockbuster to energize our side..

i voted early today

first day of early voting... no lines no problems.. i carry around an oxygen tank, and sometimes have "bad air days".. so i voted as soon as i could to have it done...

congressional seat

hi all..

don't know who to vote for in the primary.. my initial inclination is to vote for a woman this year if i can.. i really feel more women would change politics for the better.. i would not throw over a progressive man for a blue dog woman, but was wondering who's best for the congressional seat.. anybody know anything about Michelle Lujan Grisham?

Thank You Skinner and others..

as a dyslexic... let me be the among the first to say thank you for getting the spell check operative

all this talk about Rush Limbagh got me thinking

I remember when he started nationwide... guess it has been over 20 years..dont remember who did an article back in the day of who? who? (2 last names).. anyway i digress, All i know about the guys background, is that hes Rush Limbaugh the 3rd, and aside from being a collage drop out, he had some nebulous connection to the Kansas City Royals.. sort of like this guy materialized with no birth family, childhood friends, or other history... wonder if parents are still alive" any siblings?

after President Obama's call to Sandra Fluke mentioning her parents could be proud.. i can't help but see somone asking Rush's parents if they were proud of their son? but at long last i think most of us have a sense of decency..

anybody

from Pocatello? isu?

thanks for the heart

dont know who... honored me with the heart trasplant.. but thanks!!
