I have to say, I KNOW I SAID I WAS STAYING OUT OF THIS ELECTION CRAP!!!! BUT...
After spending my weekend working for Senator Obama, campaigning and making phone calls, let me tell you ~ HE IS NOT, I repeat NOT part of the so-called "Chicago Machine" as the latest McCain ad attempts to parley. In fact, if you have been reading here for a while, it was one of the things I did not like about Senator Obama at first! Now he is being penalized for it anyway! He had NO backing starting in Chicago. AT ALL. He has literally been one of the first to work his way up, alone. I have been at events years ago, where they would not even let him speak...he was too unknown, but he would stand there and press on nonetheless. Shaking hands, smiling and making his rounds. A quiet, and now we see, persistent, omnipresent force ~ one to be reckoned with, obviously, because Chicago politics is no joke. But do not be fooled...even with all of the hullabaloo ~ This is a city that works. And methinks it works quite well for a city of 3 million plus. It works, while still maintaining that small town, homey appeal.
We do have quite a bit of work to do, and I will say, Senator Obama could have given us more, but he will give all of that to all of you! It is there. The passion and desire for reform and change. Don't worry about the Chi ~ we are capable. We have an entire city of folk with the same goals.
McCain's campaign can take all of that garbage and just put it where the sun don't shine!
Anyway, I was hoping to share good news, and I think I still can. GOOD news is that the headquarters at the newest Obama site was BOOMING!
It was SO exciting. Usually I work from home, but I went to the opening and it was just a sight! Young, old, decrepit, wheelchair-bound, college, elitist, homeless, White, Black, Indian, Pakistani, Chinese, Cook County, DuPage County, Kane County, I mean folks had travelled! We were laughing, we were energized, we were committed and we want to share it with the planet! SO, if you don't know how to get involved, contact me, email me OR dial 866-675-2008 for more information in your area.

Like my girl Hill said, "No McCain, no way, no how."
Sorry to all of my conservative readers, I LOVE you but I also LOVE my choice, choice for my body, choice for those who want to be with whomever they want as a family and and it scares me to hear wars are "Missions from God". Why in the world would any one's GOD want a war?
Furthermore, after talking to so many farmers in the Midwest who are in dire straits because of this economy and this administration, I LOVE my food supply and would like to go back to the days when I was not worried about what they put in my food, who was regulating it, and where in the world it came from! 40 days folks!
What say you!
(I am at work right now ~ so I will post what I really intended to when I get home, I just had to share that with you guys after hearing about that ad! Shame on them)
