Do you ever wonder why it's always the Republicans who are trying to "purge" the voter rolls?
Well take a read of this Rolling Stone Article, then go here and grab the comic book. While you're at Steal back your vote, take a look around, read a few things, then pass on the article and information to EVERYONE you know, and ask them to do the same.

My dear friend Carey Rockland went to Santa Cruz to play.
There was a BJJ tournament, the 13th US Open, there this last Sunday and Carey wanted to test her skill.
Aside form being one of the most delightful people I know (I'd call her vivacious, but she might punch me) she is a superb fighter, and is getting better daily.
We have trained together some, and she is one of the easiest people to teach I have ever encountered, and she's dead game. (Hey Carey, I want you to drink this quart of whiskey and then wrassle (as opposed to wrestle) a Grisly bear, "OK sure thing, bring him on, but make sure that the Whiskey is 18 year old single malt")
Here is a shot of her waiting for her match
I absolutely love this picture. You just know that the next words out of her mouth will be "Are you Sarah Connor?"
And this last pic tell it all! Yeah Carey! (If I'm not mistaken, I think she made her opponent cry)
If the racial and religious bigotry of this woman doesn't scare you, as well as her ignorance appall you, then you have missed something somewhere.
This is where the Republicans and John McCain want our country to go, this is the future under Republican rule.

The amount of hate generated by the McCain champaign and the GOP is really over the top.
So let me introduce you to John McCain's base. The man sold his soul for a shot at the White House, it's hard to believe that I ever thought well of the man. In 2000 I would have voted for him if he had gotten the nomination, today I wouldn't piss on him to put him out if he were on fire.
Take a look at what is really destroying the fabric of our democracy.
There's nothing like a little racism with your Sarah Palin rally.
And how about a little KKKandy for Halloween.
Gen. Colin Powell says it quite succinctly when it comes to the hate mongering as usual. I had always thought the Powell would have been our first Black President, but he fell in with the wrong crowd and tarnished his reputation. I hope tha Obama picks him up for some post on his Cabinet.

It turns out that "Joe the Plumber" was most likely a Republican shill.
I just picked this up from Crooks and Liars
From Martin Eisenstadt:
So "Joe the Plumber" was not just any old shill he is, it seems, directly connected to McCain's BFF Charles Keating.
Turns out that Joe Wurzelbacher from the Toledo event is a close relative of Robert Wurzelbacher of Milford, Ohio. Who’s Robert Wurzelbacher? Only Charles Keating’s son-in-law and the former senior vice president of American Continental, the parent company of the infamous Lincoln Savings and Loan. The now retired elder Wurzelbacher is also a major contributor to Republican causes giving well over $10,000 in the last few years.
No wonder he doesn't like Obama and is trying so hard to brand him as a "Socialist"!
What a bunch of utter scum.
So there we have it folks Republicans lie, and they prefer a lie to the truth most of the time. John McCain can't win on the merits so he concocts a little right wing fantasy and plays it out for the American public at the debate.
The amount of spin (lies) that McCain put on the encounter was significant. Take a look at the actual exchange and make up your own mind as th whether or not Obama is talking "socialism".
Remember, everything republicans tell you needs to be checked! If McCain says "the sky is blue" you need to look out your window to make sure.
It will be interesting to find out a bit more about "Joe the Plumber".

After 30 years of republican control people are starting to realize the danger if imbibing right wing ideology and are doing something to help those who are at risk.

I think they were scared out of their holes by Republican rhetoric.
On my bike ride yesterday I saw more snakes crawling about than I have seen since I moved here. They were all garter snakes and most of them were pretty small. I think I saw maybe thirty of them all told.
I suspect that it was something like them getting ready to den up for the winter, but it could have been politics.
We knew it was going to get ugly, but I didn't think it was going to get this over the top. Obama seems to have known though.
John McCain has turned out to be a despicable excuse for a human being. He doesn't deserve to be elected dog catcher let alone president, and he seems to be frightening the local snakes.

And it's about time too!
John McCain was right in the middle of the last big finantial melt down, and I suspect had a lot to do with it since Charles Keating was his BFF
Check out Keating Economics and then spread the word.
The reason we are about to have a great economic crash and most of us are going to lose what little we have left after eight years of mismanagement by BushCo is because The Republicans let the banks do whatever they wanted. (Like John McCain says "I'm a deregulator")
Remember, the only similarity between Comunism and Free Market Capitalism is that they both don't work.

William Ayers endorses John McCain
(yes, this is a joke)
According to sources close to the issue, William Ayers, formerly a member of the Weather Underground, has endorsed John McCain for President of the United States.
Ayers was quoted as saying "Hey, when I was young I thought that blowing things up could make the world a better place. When I heard John McCain singing 'bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran' I knew that he had never grown out of his youthful zest for explosions as a means for social change."
Ayers said that he will be actively champaigning for McCain until the election.
While the bankers are getting their billions so that they (and perhaps we) won't have to suffer the consequences of their actions, this is going on in the real world.
Ohio woman, 90, attempts suicide after foreclosureRead the rest of the story at Reuters
CINCINNATI (Reuters) - A 90-year-old Ohio woman, facing eviction from the home she has lived in for 38 years, shot and wounded herself this week, becoming a grim symbol of the U.S. home mortgage crisis.
Addie Polk was found lying on the floor of her home with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to her shoulder when police came to the home on Wednesday to serve an eviction notice, Akron police spokesman Lt. Rick Edwards said on Friday.
Polk survived the shooting and is being treated in a hospital.
It was the latest attempt by sheriff's deputies to evict Polk from her modest single-family home because she could not keep up with her mortgage.
Personally I am very tired of seeing Americans suffer like this while the fat cat Republican establishment gets to cover ts mistakes with our tax dollars.
Republicans are the cause of the problems we are seeing today in America and have been since Reagan.
Throw the bastards out.
