"It liberates the vandal to travel--you never saw a bigoted, opinionated, stubborn, narrow-minded, self-conceited, almighty mean man in your life but he had stuck in one place since he was born and thought God made the world and dyspepsia and bile for his especial comfort and satisfaction." - The American Abroad speech, 1868 - Mark Twain

I am a backer. I support this effort. Maybe you should too.
Better luck next time Teabillies! 10-4 Good Buddy? ;-)
These ass-clowns are such lying sacks of crap that they had to circulate a picture taken back in May that was unrelated to this protect. Click the link below to read the truth:

That article is a long text piece that SHOULD be read by every American. If you have EVER thought that your lone vote does not matter consider that every individual vote is all that stands between our continued Democracy and the full-on tyranny of a shadow government.
I don't worry about giving that site added exposure; its worth a chuckle just to visit and see some of the commenters to their posts. Wowzers, truly the under-belly ... lower life forms. All dumber than a bag of rocks. Dumber than stumps. Shit-for-brains. Seriously, visit and poke sticks at those animals. Troll 'em just for sport when you're bored. That site singlehandledly makes the case for a woman's right to choose. ;-)
Hey ... all you folks bitching and complaining about folks that use Food Stamps ... you know who you are ... the ones driving the big-ass SUV in the grocery store parking lot that has that hypocritical "Support Our Troops" decal on the rear bumper. Follow this link and read it. Then SUCK IT.
National Restaurant Association Lobbyists are nothing more than sock-puppets for the ginourmous Corporate interests. The Corporatocracy. They talk a lot about being for small business, but that's crap. They are all about the mega-huge who are all about slave-labor.
Once again, labor is taking it in the shorts. Only way to turn this tide is to do something which is otherwise good for us anyway ... stop buying fast food. Cook and eat your own food. Vote with your dollars. It works and you'll get healthier doing it too.
Take a look at these 7 instances (click the link below) in just a single week and then try telling me that right-wing-nut conservatives aren't driving the GOP toward extinction (we can hope).Please take early steps to make sure that your voter registration is up-to-date and that you are prepared to to meet any and all requirements of your local voter precinct so that your ballot cannot be denied. Then vote the GOP out in 2014.
In yet another example of how much more powerful of a VOTE that consumers' dollars can be than their ballot box vote, a small Oregon business discovers that it pays to keep their hate & their bible thumping out of their business plan. I am glad to see that consumers voted with their dollars and that the majority did the right thing by shopping elsewhere. Let's see if the support of their fellow haters can revive and sustain them over time:

If you don't think that there is a raging war being waged by the Corporatocracy against We-The-People look no further than this latest example in Florida. Florida Governor Rick Scott (R) is a bought and paid for whore for the Corporatocracy. Rick Scott is a sock-puppet for the Corporatocracy. Rick Scott is a steaming heap of Republican't dung.
"Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) signed a bill on Friday that blocks local governments from implementing paid sick leave legislation, the Orlando Sentinel reports. He made his decision quickly, only taking four of the 15 days he legally had to review the bill before he signed it."

Remember that this is an example of the GOP Economic Policy. This is an example of the GOP Economic Platform. This is more proof that the GOP is owned and operated by the Corporatocracy. Vote every damn Repuke out in 2014!
Boycott businesses which supported this bill: Disney World, Darden Restaurants (owner of Olive Garden and Red Lobster)
Vote with your dollars!
Let me tell you what is REALLY going on ... the Republicans cannot escape the FACT that their majority in the House has the lowest approval rating in history ... lower than whale shit ... and so their only solution is to attack the very 'government' to which they are a major part in order to attempt to distract their great unwashed masses core into believing that they themselves are somehow separate and above the very problem that they themselves created. The sad part is that low information voters .. ones who get their news from Fox, will buy it.
The Republican party platform is one of scandal. They waste taxpayer dollars 37 times, pointlessly challenging Obamacare, but stifle and block all attempts to do positive things for this nation. In effect doing NOTHING except invent scandals from thin air. Republicans are anti-American traders and enemies of the state.
Rather than care about, and focus on the condition of this nation, Republicans are only ever focused on the next election cycle and they are desparately willing to sacrifice anything to win the next election, rather than pay any attention to the needs of the nation as a whole. Let's get rid of all of them. Vote them all out, at all levels, at every turn.
The HUGE money of the Corporatocracy is going to defeat common sense, and allow us to continue to be poisoned.
"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation then by deflation, the banks and the corporations will grow up around them, will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."--Thomas Jefferson
"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies."--Thomas Jefferson
Ubuntu is more than an Operating System; it is a political party movement.
