About Me

A child of the 60\\\'s, a lifelong Democrat and a sense that our elected officials , especially the President, set the tone of civility in our great country. I worked on JFK\\\'s campaign and on Barack Obama\\\'s (twice). High School Class of 1963 I was moved by MLK\\\'s march on Washington, and to see that go full circle and have Mr. Obama for President is quite gratifying. When I see remnants of the John Birch society still quite active in the Tea Party it strengthens my beliefs and support of the Democratic Party.

VWI----Boehner --is he voting while under the influence?

For those in the public eye, people like Boehner usually go into detox and treatment . One branch of government is extremely dysfunctional with this man at the helm. From what I know of alcoholism it is a progressive disease, and a mere "drying out" does not do anything to help the sick person. There has to me a 'spiritual awakening" and a psychic change. A person does not become alcoholic overnight, and a cure does not happen quickly. The answer to the problems in the House are that we have a very weak and sick person in charge. If he were driving a car he would have his license revoked. Instead he is driving our country into the ground. The House needs a good, strong leader. Even though Eric Cantor revolts me, he at least was sober. It is time for mr. Boehner to go to rehab. His preexisting condition is covered. If he is drunk at the wheel let's remove him for cause. If he is sober we have an even bigger problem.

OPEN CARRY at Hobby Lobby

no ---but maybe a few costume swords and pirate attire----

John Roberts----We thank you & SCOTUS---NO BUFFER ZONE AT HOBBY LOBBY

So , based on the SCOTUS ruling on buffer zones at Planned Parenthood clinics , opponents of the Hobby Lobby decision can get "up close and personal" to supporters of Hobby Lobby--i.e. their customers.

Here's Justice Roberts take on this ---"At each of the three Planned Parenthood clinics where petitioners attempt to counsel patients, the zones carve out a significant portion of the adjacent public sidewalks, pushing petitioners well back from the clinics’ entrances and driveways," concluded Roberts in his opinion. "The zones thereby compromise petitioners’ ability to initiate the close, personal conversations that they view as essential to 'sidewalk counseling.'"

SOOOOOOOOO----if we could get a few clips of those ardent protesters at Planned Parenthood we could use them as instruction video for any demonstration we would like to make at Hobby Lobby-----

Except-- that I think moderation is the key here ---to behave with decorum---but let them that we are keen observers of those at the clinics

Halloween Nightmare for Hobby Lobby--for 2 months before the Mid Term election

And what an opportunity SCOTUS has made for the opposition----we can use the months of September and October to protest at Hobby Lobby---substantially reducing their profits during one of their busiest seasons-and at the same time using the protests to GOTV. It won't take much, because business bottom line is thin, a reduction in gross of 10% could be enough to bring the Green's to give up and at the same time galvanize women to vote on November 4. I am a business person and it is beyond me how the owners of Hobby Lobby could pick a fight on women's issues when they are the majority of their customers.
