What to do

No matter what President Obama does in Syria (at this point looks like we'll be sending missiles their way) President Obama won't win. And the blame is squarely on Bush. You see with Bush's lies about Iraq it's apparent that he ruined our reputation in the world. No countries trust us cause of Bush's ego and desire to invade Iraq. And even our closest allies don't trust us now. Thanks you Bush you idiot.

The dream continues

The 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther Kings I have a dream speech is coming. I would love to say things are changing and to a degree they are. But considering how things like the gutting of the voting rights act happened and the erosion of people rights to vote done by the GOP are happening we still have a long way to go. But these words need to still be said. Here is a copy of the text of the speech. May someday soon every man, women of every race, sexual preference, color be treated equally.

I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.
Five score years ago a great American in whose symbolic shadow we stand today signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beckoning light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity.
But one hundred years later the Negro is still not free. One hundred years later the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination.
One hundred years later the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity.
One hundred years later the Negro is still languishing in the comers of American society and finds himself in exile in his own land.
We all have come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of now. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time to change racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood. Now is the time to make justice ring out for all of God's children.
There will be neither rest nor tranquility in America until the Negro is granted citizenship rights.
We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force.
And the marvelous new militarism which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to a distrust of all white people, for many of our white brothers have evidenced by their presence here today that they have come to realize that their destiny is part of our destiny.
So even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: 'We hold these truths to be self-evident; that all men are created equal."
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit together at the table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.
I have a dream that little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
I have a dream today.
I have a dream that one day down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its Governor having his lips dripping with the words of interposition and nullification, one day right there in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.
I have a dream today.
I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places plains, and the crooked places will be made straight, and before the Lord will be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together.
This is our hope. This is the faith that I go back to the mount with. With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith we will be able to transform the genuine discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith we will be able to work together, pray together; to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom forever, )mowing that we will be free one day.
And I say to you today my friends, let freedom ring. From the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire, let freedom ring. From the mighty mountains of New York, let freedom ring. From the mighty Alleghenies of Pennsylvania!
Let freedom ring from the snow capped Rockies of Colorado!
Let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of California!
But not only there; let freedom ring from the Stone Mountain of Georgia!
Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain in Tennessee!
Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill in Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring.
And when this happens, when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, "Free at last! Free at last! Thank God almighty, we're free at last!"

Who gets to vote

So with the gutting of the Voting Rights act by the Supreme Court I would like to remind people a few things. I consider the right to vote the most scared right. I haven't missed an election since I became of legal to vote in 1988.

Republicans don't want you to vote. We can take a look at recent history where Republicans didn't want the legal votes to count in Florida in 2000, or Ohio in 2004, or what they are doing today in Texas, Florida, Ohio, North Carolina and many other states the clear indication is they don't want every citizen who is eligible to vote to be able to do that.

The facts show.

you see Democrats want everyone who is to be allowed to vote and whatever the results are they are. Republicans can't win on issues or even have a honest discussion of them so they have to cheat. That's the only way they know how.

And by the way do follow up on my last post about Ted Cruz, sorry just because you renounce your Canadian citizenship doesn't mean you are a U.S. citizen.

Eliminate One

Eliminate one candidate for the Republicants in 2016. Sen. Ted Cruz was born in Canada which means he can't run.

What a difference

So I'd like to give a difference between President Obama and Bush...

On Aug 6, 2001 Bush was given a Presidential briefing called Bin Laden determined to attack the United States. Bush chose to do absolutely nothing to protect Americans.

President Obama was told a threat is "imminent" and chose to protect Americans best he can.

Who is really serious about security??
