It Is Time For Change!

To Get Involved:

Yes- I still entertain that a U.S. Dept. of Peace--(at the Cabinet Level) that Rep. Dennis Kucinich has introduced into Congress-- becomes a reality. Yes I do wish that America will elect more qualified progressive women (Hillary, Cynthia McKinney, etc.) to Congress and some day one will become President of the United States.

It is time for change – It has been eight miserable years with the extreme right wing Republican agenda undermining our constitution, destroying the economic stability of America and tearing this nation apart. This patriot has had enough! I want my Constitution, and health care back! I want veterans home from Iraq and taken care of as they deserve.

It is time to move forward and away from the political machinery that has undermined our Democratic process and the Corporate practices that are destroying our Earth!

It is time for America to regain our credibility and honor in the world. It is time to
abandon the belief and willingness that to use force is the mainstay of determining the basis of our foreign policy. America must turn around and lead the world away from
desolation of a doomsday arms race.

And another thing-- it is not OK to torture (and off the topic I wish the students at the University of California (UC) Berkeley would rise up and demand that John Choon Yoo step down from the faculty of UC Berkeley's Law School at Boalt Hall (--Remember Anita Hill who testified under oath that Thomas had made provocative sexual statements to her while being her supervisor?!...Yoo clerked for Justice Clarence Thomas )

It is time to end our stubborn support and dependence on environmentally lethal fossil fuels. pesticides and chemicals (derived from oil) and gas guzzling high speed cars. The oceans are choking with our plastic refuse!

It is time to support the backbone of America: small businesses and to end corporate socialism via tax subsidies when nearly two-thirds of U.S. companies and 68% of foreign corporations do not pay federal income taxes (according to Government Accountability Office (GAO) report to Congress). Give those subsidies to GREEN Environmetally friendly innovative businesses!

OK—The acceptance speech by Barack was stellar. Yes—it was in a football stadium with all the hoopla and high tech that we could muster. But do we ever need a party with positive visions! Yes—there are a great deal of problems to solve and much to clean up after the Bush-Cheney mess. Yes, there are Corporations like Chevron, Halliburton, and etc. that should be hung by the noogies for their parts in highly reported destructive and deceptive modi operandi ("modes of operation") You can Google reports on all that!

Barack is now charged to run for office in a quest to lead our Country in a rejuvenation of multilateralism and to engage us back to international cooperation and honoring our international obligations.

Here at home America is being surrounded by fences—rooted in the fears and propaganda that the right wing machine and its pundits have fed us rather than a bridge between neighbors and return to a model of persuasion and generosity.

But Barack cannot do it alone. We are called to the front of center of this American life –

It is time to get cracking –to embrace tolerance and celebration of diversity rather than cutting ourselves off geographically and culturally and get that man elected.

It is time to get off the blame game, pull each other up by the boot straps and help others get those boots if they have none and teach ourselves to make boots that fit!

And on this historic day with Barack accepting his party’s nomination for President of the United States on the 45th anniversary of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech I think we should step up to send Barack Obama and his family to take their place at the White House

By the way Kathleen Hensley Portalski, Cindy McCain's Half Sister, in her recent interview with US magazine stated:

"I wouldn't vote for John McCain if he was a Democrat,"

Rock Star Bon Jovi will be hosting a mega fundraiser at his house in NJ. How about you?

It is all about attitude- I invite you to go out and make some positive change of your own at the local Senior Center, literacy center or hospice care or animal shelter.
