12 Year Old Publicly Schools Governor at Moral Monday Rally in North Carolina

12 year old Madison Kimrey spoke at Burlington, North Carolina’s downtown amphitheater on Monday, October 28, 2013. She discussed the new North Carolina voting laws and very eloquently pointed out that “there is a serious leadership problem in North Carolina” and the current State legislature (among other things) was trying to reduce voting participation of the state’s youth. Thankfully, Madison does not have her head in the sand and wants to spread the truth.

I am part of the new generation of suffragettes and I will not stand silent while laws are passed to reduce the amount of young people in voter turnout in my home state!”

It’s bright minds like this young lady that give me hope for the future.
WATCH her brilliance via Story Of America:


Madison has more dignity, grace and intelligence than the Tea Party in the Senate and House. What a charming and articulate child. Maybe our "TP and Repuke" representatives could take a few lessons from her.

Our Children, Our Future!

“You don’t have to like the president; you don’t have to like me."

A Governor’s Last Campaign – To Prove Health Law Works

Some 34,000 had begun applications, and more than 11,000 had signed up for plans, making Kentucky one of the most successful state-run insurance marketplaces under the new federal health care law. “You are all doing a fantastic job,” Mr. Beshear told two dozen bleary-eyed workers. “My message to Kentuckians is simply this,” Mr. Beshear said in his office in the State Capitol. “You don’t have to like the president; you don’t have to like me. Because this isn’t about him, and it’s not about me. It’s about you, your family and your children. So do yourself a favor. Find what you can get for yourself. You’re going to like what you find.” Kentucky is the only Southern state to operate its own insurance exchange as well as expand Medicaid coverage for the poor.

“To me this was a moral decision,” he said. “We’ve got 640,000 Kentuckians who don’t have access to any kind of affordable health care. The last ranking I saw, we’re 44th out of 50 in health status. You take any chronic disease or condition — heart disease, cancer, smoking, obesity, you name it — and we’re either the worst or close to the worst.” He also said the law made economic sense, citing a state-commissioned study that found that an expansion of Medicaid over eight years would “create a $15.6 billion economic impact” and almost 17,000 new jobs. “Most of these critics are going to end up with egg on their face,” the governor predicted. “People are finding that I can get health insurance for the first time in my life that I can afford. They’re going to look back at these folks after all the dust settles and say, ‘You misled us.’ ”

Hey GOP@!#@%U(!!!!!

This is the Face of America

Get Over It!


Safe Hands~

@dougmillsnyt: Obama’s hands are seen as he talks with small business owners at the White House


Such strong and steady hands to lead us. Thank you Mr. President


This Shutdown isn’t about Obamacare…it’s about OBAMA


THAT is why, when one looks back at the list of accomplishments by President Obama in his first term in office..

They were done WITHOUT GOP votes.


This country has been forced to run itself on continuing resolutions.

The President said the other day that the two things the House of Representatives are charged with are the following:
1. Produce a budget
2. Pay the bills the United States runs up

And, they have DELIBERATELY been AWOL with both duties.

The party that inherited a BUDGET SURPLUS from Bill Clinton and didn’t two shyts about budget deficits as they:
1. Lied us into not one, but TWO wars that were kept ‘ off the books’
2. Put in place tax cuts during wartime – something NEVER EVER done before
3. Put in place the unpaid for Medicare Part D

The Rest Here.
