Great picks and pictures!! (saved in the libruary!) If hard work and intentions, did = financial success, then "ROMNEY'S THINKING & WORDS, WOULD BE TRUE!!..SCAREY, HUH!!??!!)...(just work hard and you will be successful, as he is wearing "white pants"..before Labor day no less!..sorry for the snide! but, this is still 2012, and hard work, persiverance in the face of all adversitys, gives all of us that live it everyday, something more important than money!!...WE contribute to the well being of all around us, and our lives are important, and we are the energy of that which is right and responsabile!...$$$ would certainly help!!!..still mountains to climb...
( I want to listen to what you posted from Obama, but until the "screwiness" here at Care 2 is fixed, a 2 minute video, freezes evey 7 later, but I know that it was good!)

Thanks Tom I watch the president give this speech I thought it was very good. Care 2 seems to have a problem again.

A UPS? Now I know that does not stand for United Parcel Service. Uninterrupted Power Source? or . . . ? So is your UPS being delivered by UPS?

MoveOn --- AMEN!!!!! And parts of Africa would not be going through starvation etc!

Washington Post --- The same bill but a different pill! Cutting preventative healthcare? That just goes to show as you said TC, "Democrats care for the needy, while Republicans care for the greedy."

Obama --- Is it me or is that venue fuller than any of the venues for the Republican/Teabagger events? And louder too!

Funny, when I had my mother out for dinner tonight, the restaurant like many these days, had a television on (no sound) but it was Obama's speech. My mother was born in Columbus so rather appropriate. It was also amusing, that when Mr Obama got off the plane, you could tell he was pumped, bounding to the top of the stairs. Then with a big grin and lots more energy, he ducked back into the doorway and brought Michelle Obama out.

Love the guy in the black tee-shirt behind Mr Obama --- holding up 4 fingers --- 4 more years!

Excellent speech that is passionate and honest! The total opposite of the Greedy Old Pharts!

Cartoon --- The Hindenburg! How appropriate. Great cartoon!

Brilliant cartoon and remark by George Monbiot (I have ALWAYS liked him!) - so very true - and the converse is that if it were true then every company-wrecking, pension-fund-grabbing, asset-stripping Conservative and Republican [99% of them] would be in the gutter pleading for help.

Maybe it's time for a balanced perspective -

Balanced? Why then do they make it necessary to give them a way to SPAM you before you can even see it?
