Tuesday, October 5, 2010
Late in the day I received a call from a lady I have worked with off and on for 20 years. We were discussing work and how our helpdesk just got outsourced to India, and how distressing it is. We were ending our call when she said "well just be careful who you vote for."
We did the dance for a bit "well ... I'm thinking this is a conversation we don't want to have, not a good idea to talk politics ..."
"Yeah, I agree but .. "
"Because I'm rabid. Okay? I cannot stand Obama and I think he's the worst president we've ever had." I said it.
I told her she was edging toward the tea party side and she said "yeah, a little."
"Well you know the tea party candidates will be running as republicans, right?"
"Yes, if they run as a separate party they'll split the vote and the democrats will win."
And in these times, if you can't be bothered to learn the issues and the candidates stances on them and what those things will do to our country - DON'T VOTE! Please. Don't vote.

Project of the Tides Center, designed to energize the far-left for the 2010 mid-term elections
Headquartered out of the offices of USAction and the Service Employees International Union
A project of the Tides Center, One Nation Working Together (ONWT) is headquartered in the Washington, DC offices of USAction. It also coordinates some of its activities out of the New York City offices of the Service Employee International Union (SEIU). ONWT's principal goal is to inject new energy into the social justice movement in advance of the 2010 mid-term elections. The organization's “signature event” is its October 2, 2010 “March on Washington,” whose purpose is to inspire “an intensive voter-mobilization program for Election Day 2010.”
Please go to Discover the Networks.Org to read the platform of this group, as well as the list of people that endorsed today's event.
Makes me want to fight all the harder.
