I extend a hand to the Hillary supporters to "Build That Bridge"....here
Edited on Sun Jun-01-08 12:11 AM by ruby slippers
Beth Schafer sings this song. While originally she offered it to the Obama campaign (while performing it in Florida last week), I think it is better served for the whole Democratic party. Give her the hits and also maybe download the song (only 99 cents folks) and listen to it carefully.

Let's begin building that bridge.

http://www.bethschafer.com/music.html CLICK HERE TO HEAR BETH'S INSPIRING AND HEALING SONG


***********************************

We all have two eyes, do we see the same things?
We all have two ears, do we hear the songs the other sings?
Sit down at the table and share a meal with me
Let us raise a cup to how things will be

CHORUS
Build that bridge with elbow grease and the words we pray
Build that bridge. It aint easydo it anyway
Build that bridge. Gonna work all night til the morning comes
Build that bridge. And keep on building til the work is done.

We all have our problems, theres enough to go around.
How do we solve them? Got to find the common ground.
When we stay in our dark corners we invite cold and fear.
The glow of peace is warmer. Lets meet in the middle, hope is here.

CHORUS

Build that bridgewith our spirit and faith the foundation
Build that bridgeare we humble enough to forgive?
Build that bridgefor the sake of the next generation.
Build that bridge, build that bridge, build that bridge.

2. Again, it's not yet time to extend our hands to the other side...

Let's wait until Obama is the nominee and Hillary suspends/ends her campaign.

until then I will continue to "ignore" them

9. I didn't say that either...
I haven't ever "bashed" Clinton, but I did respond to the Obama bashers... for a long time now I simply ignore them.

When the process is over and Obama is the nominee... then I will extend my hand in friendship to our fellow Dems that support Hillary. But only then.

14. well, I know it will take me longer, so I have to try to start now...but
I know I will fall off the wagon still. And, I'm ashamed to admit it, but I "have" "bashed" Clinton. It's called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder....

The "other side" are the REPUBLICANS, not supporters of other Democratic candidates.

42. he said, "who is lapfog_1 and why do I care?"
Alternately, "people who constantly post about people they ignore aren't actually ignoring them, and are gigantic dorks to boot."

7. ive never done anything except to the luntic fringe
if people here are offended by calling an idiot an idiot well....oopsie doopsie
i never saw her supporters telling each other to cool down and watch what they said
i have daily been restrained by my fellow obama supporters from using my full kryptonian snark power
i thank them all for those posts as they did indeed serve to keep the tone down at least from me
but on tuesday its over
by the next tuesday those that cant get aboard will be jettisoned
amen

29. I know. I took it real hard in 2004 with Bush. I thought I would go nuts...well,
it took me a good 2 to 3 months to become myself to my family again. Then, when I realized that I was just one little pea in pod and my thoughts and views could not control the outcome, I realized that all I could do was become a mouthpiece and try to effect one person. Like a mustard seed, it can grow.

So, if I can extend a hand to you to try and see that even if Hillary is not the nominee that it is important to unite no matter how you feel, then perhaps you can take a small step, one day at a time.

I don't know what makes you trust her. I used to, too, but then I read one small article on how she is part of the shadow government, even higher than Bush, and it scared the heck out of me. The more investigating I did, and the more close watching I did, I see excatly what they were meaning.

I know I can't convince you in one post, but hopefully you will come to trust Obama that he wants change and overlook facts like "the first woman President", or whatever it is that you have rallied behind her. Their platforms are the same, but I just feel we can trust him more since he isn't part of the Establishment....."yet", and notice I say "yet"...

Anyway, peace and I hope you feel better tomorrow. It WILL take time and as long as she keeps fighting the nomination, it will make her supporters just that more anxious.

35. I don't think that Obama is "F***ed" without Hillary supporters when
he has Independents like us backing him instead....I just think it is best to ask them to come back home to their roots....it is just my Conscience speaking tongues.....

But, you are right...I am among the worst of the worst...thanks, I needed that certificate....

45. I'll be happy to get back to you on that in 158 days. But lets talk about you.
Why the fuck else would you be so very suddenly interested in the "feelings" of the 50%+ of Democratic voters whose loyalties, motivations, ethics, and moralities you have gleefully shat upon for so many months?

Forgive us when we imagine where we would like you to put your sentiments.

51. because maybe I found some toilet paper to wipe my fhearts?
I just think that if the shoe were on the other foot, I would want someone to realize how much they might have hurt my feelings so I offer to all the Hillary supporters an olive branch. And, I just think it is time for you to come to your senses, anyway. Or, maybe I just remembered my Anthropology teacher telling me why we continue to have wars when people cannot compromise....or something like that.

48. With O-mentum slowing to a dragging crawl, you'd think 18 million voters...
...would be an attractive group for the BO Camp to court.
But no, the unrelenting Hate keeps pouring down.
