Tea Party voters are fueling Republican chances of taking over Congress
Republican 'witch' hits back at 'Marxist' rival in TV debate
It gets curiouser and curiouser, this buzzing electronic cacophony that’s supposed to represent the national conversation. Consider the rapid rise and meteoric fall of one James O’Keefe, the right-wing prankster whose “Candid Camera” stunts made him a “journalist” hero to the FOX News crowd.

The Blood on Bush's Hands
In its most extensive death
tally of the Iraq war, the U.S. military says nearly
77,000 Iraqi civilians and security officials were killed from early 2004 to
mid-2008 — a toll that falls well below Iraqi government figures.

Imagine If Fox News Followed These Rules
NPR, like many
news organizations, restricts its journalists from taking political stands,
making campaign contributions, or participating in marches and rallies that the
Those rules can apply more broadly than just to Democratic or Republican events. NPR told staffers Wednesday that they are not permitted to attend the upcoming Washington events hosted by Comedy Central's Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert.
Republican candidate for Congress in Ohio, a guy named Richard Lott, photos have
surfaced of him dressed in a Nazi uniform. He would go to Nazi reenactments
dressed as an SS Storm trooper. He said he only dressed as a Nazi as a bonding
ritual with his son. Really? Any other kids do that with their dads? 'I don't
want to fish, I don't want to play catch, Let's dress up as Nazis!'" –Jay

groups from California to Florida have organized to go to polling locations to
check registrations themselves.
"We are worried this year that we could see large-scale efforts to challenge voters at the polls," said Wendy Weiser of the Brennan Center, a nonpartisan public policy and law institute based at New York University.
More Republican Poll Intrusion
The race to
fill President Barack Obama’s old Illinois U.S. Senate seat – and to effectively
replace Sen. Roland Burris (D-IL) – took an interesting turn over the past week.
Allegations abound as Republican nominee Mark Kirk frantically fends off charges
that he is conducting a racially-charged “voter fraud” monitoring effort in four
state areas with large populations of African Americans, including Chicago. Kirk
is overheard in a secret taping – later blasted on YouTube by Illinois politics
blog ArchPundit – discussing strategies with state GOP leaders, including an
effort to eliminate voter fraud in Black districts that typically vote
by dispatching what he calls “voter integrity squads” to those areas.

Who’s Itching For Impeachment (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane
The Republican threat is in reach:
Take over the House — then impeach.
What’s the crime? It’s a gem:
Prez Obama’s a Dem!
So please vote. We can’t risk such a breach.
Subject: Support-ive (of Lisa)
I’m in the UK, and just wanted to say ‘hello’ – I would love to send you some lolly, ($) but am ‘semi retired’ and so my wife and I live on ‘buttons’ here!
However, I couldn’t resist saying ‘hello’, when I came across yr site just now, coz you feel like a sister to me! There’s lots of us, -- folks like you and I, scattered all over the world, people of our generation who (I would opine) came to this planet to ‘make a difference’...
Like you, I too come from a ‘creative’ (arts) background, (as well as being a craftsman, - and more besides).
... Another reason I resonate with you is that I too have taught literacy, to the poor and under-privileged, and like you had to suffer the crazed under-resourcing and other lunacy by / from those who employed me, and so I ended up (as we idealists do!) financing things out of my own pocket, only then to get somewhat reprimanded by the oafs ‘at the top’ !
... So yr not alone there Hon! –these fools are all over the planet, (like flies on dung?) --but I have an abiding notion that, notwithstanding their present grip on power, bit by bit we are loosening their hands on the reins...
Hard / uphill work though, isn’t it!
Anyway, in case it helps, am visualising a lot more cash rolling into your coffers and helping support what you do, it’s great that there’s folk like you, willing to stick their (our!) heads above the parapet...
~ Lively minds, and live, beating hearts; that’s the stuff we’re made of. May we succeed totally in our mission to bend the world back into a sensible, sane shape, where days filled with hatred, sorrow, wars and fear are a fading memory. I’ve spent the best part of my life trying to change things for the better, and am still as keen on the ‘project’ as ever I was. Maybe more so!
I’ll never give up, doing whatever I can to help our long-suffering race, as best I can.
‘Twas not my reason for writing, but it just occurred to me: -- you’ve obviously got a good sense of humour, and are intelligently ‘left of centre’, in a similar way to me, ... well, I’m in the middle of publishing one of several books at the moment, these first books all have a strong element of humour about them, with a load of ‘social comment’ simmering underneath. You might like ‘em I think! When I get them done I may drop you a line to see if you’d like to have a look at them, and maybe I might submit some stuff to your site if you like my brand of humour? Just a passing thought.
~ Either way, I like that there’s people just like you sharing the planet with me! ~ Thanks for being here!
Lotsa love, dear sister,
Thank you for such a beautiful email, Yan. Hugs. And yes, please send anything that fits in with AHNC.
So, I just read that your Queen is cancelling her Christmas party for her staff due to the bad economy.
Thank you for visualizing money flowing into my coffers, we'll see if it works. Actually, I heard a bit of good news since receiving your email, my friend is going to rent my property in Alabama which will cover my mortgage payment. Fear of foreclosure avoided again. Thanks for the good vibes.
Yan, we'd probably be millionaires if we wrote right wing garbage.
I, too, will be writing a book, as soon as I get my family affairs settled in the US. Ann Coulter will be my ghost writer. Just kidding.
Good luck with your book(s).
And thanks again for such a heart warming email.
