For the Love

For the love of a tree, she went out on a limb
For the love of the sea, she rocked the boat
For the love of the earth, she dug deeper

For the love of the community, she mended fences
For the love of the stars, she let her light shine
For the love of spirit, she nurtured her soul

For the love of a good time, she sowed seeds of happiness
For the love of the Goddess, she drew down the moon

For the love of nature, she made compost
For the love of a good meal, she gave thanks
'For the love of family she reconciled differences

For the love of creativity, she entertained new possibilities
For the love of her enemies, she suspended judgment
For the love of herself, she acknowledged her worth
and the world was richer for her.

What's in Your Lunch Bucket?

What's in my Lunch Bucket? Well, for starters, I've packed a huge Hillary salad, made with big chunks of Intelligence, Compassion and Very Hard Work. I've sprinkled in lots of Support, including Letters to the Editor and Common Delegates, along with Blog Posts, Emails Touting Experience, Truthfulness, and Willingness to Face Adversity by Never Giving Up, no matter how hard it gets.

Rather than MSM croutons, I've opted for lots of Change with Experience that Counts. I also have a huge flowing bottle of Positive Thought and Energy, ready to be uncorked. I've packed my very best silver, favorite vintage china place setting and a wonderful antique linen napkin, as nothing less will do for such a Class Act.

I intend to partake of my lunch bucket contents for as long as it takes to convince Americans that either Democratic candidate will bring change. And I'm not so keen on reaching across the aisle to Republicans. They are the ones that got us into this mess in the first place. I don't need another Uniter, either. The last one was quite enough, thank you. It's the Strength, Integrity and Ability to Lead that make my Lunch Bucket special and I'm sticking with it come Hell or High Water.

I'm not voting for Hillary Rodham Clinton because she's a woman - I'm voting for her because I am.

Feminists for Clinton

We are women who support Hillary Clinton for the presidency of the United States. We do so because we believe that she will be the best president for the entire country. And as feminists, we also believe that Clinton is the best choice for attending to issues of special importance to women.

We write to you now because it’s time for feminists to say that Senator Obama has no monopoly on inspiration. We are among the millions of women and men who have been moved to action by her. Six months ago, some of us were committed to her candidacy, some of us weren’t, but by now we all find ourselves passionately supporting her. Brains, grace under pressure, ideas, and the skill to make them real: we call that inspiring. The restoration of good government after eight years of devastation, a decent foreign policy with ties to world leaders repaired, withdrawal from Iraq and universal health care: we call that exciting. And the record to prove that she can and will stand up to the swift-boating that will come any Democratic nominee’s way: we call that absolutely necessary.

Clinton’s enormous contributions as Senator, public servant, spokesperson for better family policies and the needs of hard-pressed women and children are widely known and recognized—even by her opponent. Her powerful, inspiring advocacy of the human rights of women at the Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing in 1995 was heralded around the world as a stunning departure from the normal anodyne role of First Lady. Corporate special interests managed to defeat the health care program she advocated in 1994., and her own leadership opened the plan to attack. But she kept on fighting, acknowledging her mistakes, and in ensuing years she succeeded in winning expanded coverage for children. Now she has crafted the only sensible and truly universal health care proposal before the voters.

On the Iraq war, many of us believe she made a major mistake in voting for Joint Resolution 114 in 2002—along with the 28 other Democratic senators, including John Edwards and John Kerry. But we also note that her current opponent, when asked about that resolution in 2004, responded that he did not know how he would have voted had he been in Congress then. We do not know either. But we do know that at the time, his opposition to the war carried no risks and indeed, promised to pay big dividends in his liberal Democratic district.

Obama plays the gender card

Ok, now I see where Michelle gets her attitude from.

Say What?? You have to think about it?

Sexism is alive and florishing in the United States. Shame on you.
