Governor of Osun State, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, in this interview, explains how he has been running the state, and why he will like to seek a second term as governor. Excerpts: We understand you will soon bring in another 20,000 youths under the Osun State Youth Empowerment Scheme (OYES) and dismiss the first set of 20,000 youths you recruited at the early stage of your administration? We must first of all situate these things in the economic reality of the state. A major factor or characteristic of a state is its sub sovereignty. A state cannot print currency no matter how it wants to be autonomous. That is one thing a state in a federation cannot do. It might have authority over its affairs but economically, it’s not totally free to determine its fortune. It can only work within the existing economic rules in a federation. There’s a limit to what a state can do particularly in social arena. Within the limit of our capacity and resources, the state of Osun must be praised and commended for the coura ...

How a Pope is Elected... Conclave veterans say most 'electioneering' happens out of public When it comes to electing a pope, there are no Iowa caucuses, no candidate debates, no conventions or platforms. The "campaign" is more analogous to the 2003 California gubernatorial recall than a presidential primary -- a quick sprint that flares up unexpectedly and is over before it even seems to begin. Conclave veterans say most of the heavy lifting involved in electing a pope happens out of public view. Cardinal Franz König of Vienna, in a July 2001 NCR interview, said the real work is done in behind-the-scenes meetings of three and four cardinals, perhaps over glasses of wine and cigars, as opposed to any of the formal events. "An external observer would think that nothing is happening," König said. "All the conversation happens in private." These moments in which the fateful decisions are made tend to come in two stages, before the conclave and during. Pre-conclave politics Theoretically, the cardinals are n ...
Serious food for thought! I don't think anyone was under some real illusion that the election of Barack Obama actually means the end of racism in America . I'm pretty sure that the president-elect knew it better than anyone. After all, he saw it every day, from the moment he announced his candidacy. To some degree, he saw it within his own party during the primaries. And he saw it in all ugliness during the General Election. For half of this country, he was The One. No matter how big and clear his victory was. No matter how smart he is. No matter how decent he is. No matter what a true patriot he is. No matter how optimistic and positive his vision for America was. All that didn't matter. Because at the end of the day, he is still black. I've seen so many presidents. Some were feared, some were hated, some were adored, some popular and some not. But all of them, without exception, were treated with the highest respect deserving the office of the president of the United States . That is until a black man w ...
FISCAL CLIFF - This fiscal cliff "deal" should serve as a reminder to Everyone but especially Conservatives! The same Government you preach to others doesn't really care... is the same Government and Representatives that JUST FAILED YOU TOO! It's going to take ALL OF US despite our differences to truthfully make a difference! I'm an Independent for a reason!!! HELLO AWAKE YET?
Paul's Puttin Place will soon shut it's doors as the Decatur Park Board plans to build two brand new put put courses in Nelson Park. Details at ten. Thoughts? We may share some of your comments on air tonight at 10.
I find it fascinating the the GOP thinks the voice of the people is "no". and the general consensus I see and hear in the media, amongst my friends from both parties and via the last election is "compromise". Hm.
Any Feedback??? Suggestions?? I'll be a guest on The David Webb Show tonight at 10:30pmEST on SiriusXM Patriot 125 talking about Rubio's NO vote on the fiscal cliff as well as any new Florida Congressman we need to watch. Any feedback???
I read yesterday that teaching penmanship is fast becoming a thing of the past. I find that appalling! If the youth of today are not taught penmanship how will they ever be able to read it? There is so much in a signature. That is one of the first proud accomplisments young students have, when they achieve the skills needed for cursive writing. And it is part of self esteem and their identity.
COMPULSORY VOTING OR NOT; THAT IS THE QUESTION. I’m in two minds about this. My first reaction is that there should be compulsory voting because as I have noticed from some comments, voters are apathetic. So I believe that if you have to vote, then a large portion of those apathetic voters will make an effort around election time, to look into the candidates and their policies. Sure, there are those that will still vote along family history lines but I think they are a minority. If we don’t have compulsory voting, then the party’s focus will be wasted on how to get voters into the voting booth like it is in America, where it is not compulsory to vote, instead of policy. I believe this will then create a climate of inducement and bribes by the parties, more than we have now, to get you to vote for them. You know like free phones, etc, similar to what the stores do to get you to buy from them. (If my American followers would confirm this, that will be great.) Having it not compulsory to vote will incr ...
NIGERIANS DO NOT UNDERSTAND HOW MUCH THIS GOVERNMENT IS ROBBING THEM OF! The total allocation for agriculture in the 2013 budget is aboug billion, the total allocation to a state like Ekiti will be about billion for the whole of 2013, but the government is using billion to buy handsets/phone for farmers this year. If the spend billion out of the total budget to buy phone, they will now use the eyes and nose to buy tractors, *** procesing machines and storage facilities. The phones will start planting, harvesting and storing farm produce, when many farmers do not have electricity in their places, even those that have do not see power supply so the farmers will use their mouths to charge the phones. Very soon Jonathan will appropriate to buy phones for primary and secondary school pupil to enhance learning. At least this one make sense pass the one for farmers. Be the judge. Is this government sane. Azuatalam
In what may be the first salvo in the race for John Kerry’s Senate seat, U.S. Sen. Scott Brown wondered yesterday whether longtime Congressman Ed Markey, who wants Kerry’s job, even lives in his hometown of Malden anymore.
I've finally figured out what "Entitlements" really need to be cut to "Save our Country from the Fiscal Cliff". Congressional pay 122 days, That's how many days Congress has scheduled for the next (the 113th) Congress. Congress is generally in session between 130 to 180 or so days per year. The days that members of the congress don't have to work on the Capitol Hill, they may be working in their home states / districts, or if an election is coming up, campaigning or attending fund-raising events. Therefore it is hard to determine exactly how many days a congressman / woman works per year. However it is safe to estimate that members of the US congress work approximately 200 days a year. The current salary (2006) for rank-and-file members of the House and Senate is $165,200 per year.* A new report from Scholastic and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, called Primary Sources: America’s Teachers on the Teaching Profession, finally quantifies just how hard teachers work: 10 hours and 40 minutes ...
Political Money Laundering Exposed: Five conservative dark money groups active in 2012 elections previously told tax regulators that they would not engage in politics, filings obtained from the IRS show. The best known and most controversial of the groups is Americans for Responsible Leadership, an Arizona-based organization. Not long after filing an application to the IRS pledging — under penalty of perjury — that it would not attempt to sway elections, the group spent more than $5.2 million, mainly to support Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. The California Fair Political Practices Commission has accused Americans for Responsible Leadership of "campaign money laundering" for failing to disclose the origin of $11 million it funneled to a group trying to influence two state ballot propositions. The other groups that filed applications for IRS recognition of tax-exempt status saying they wouldn't engage in politics are Freedom Path, Rightchange.com II, America Is Not Stupid and A Better Am ...
The primary sin of “Django Unchained” is not the desire to create an alternative history. It’s in the idea that an enslaved black man willing to kill in order to protect those he loves could constitute one.
So they strip away the right to negotiate and force a contract on the teachers using Bill 115, but then promise to repeal it asap because it's "polarizing". And they're hoping this will smooth the waters and encourage teachers to resume all the extra-curricular clubs and activities they don't get paid to run. I'm sure that will work out just fine.
Spring election update: Filing deadline for the three trustee seats in the VILLAGE OF HAMMOND has been extended since incumbent Eric Arthur did not submit candidacy or non-candidacy papers and incumbent trustee Erin McComb filed candidacy papers for Village President (challenging incumbent President Anthony Bibeau) but not for a trustee seat. Signatures can be collected through Saturday, and papers must be filed by the end of the business day Monday! Those who have filed for trustee are incumbent Doug Doll, Sandy Brecht, Michael (Mack) Kamm, Laurie Gruber and Lynn Pabst.

How Marketable Is Governor Sule Lamiso?When the news of endorsement of the duo of Governor Sule Lamido and his counterpart in Rivers State, Chibuike Amaechi by former President; Olusegun Obasanjo to run in 2015 for the post of President and Vice, under the umbrella of the ruling People’s Democratic Party [PDP], a mixed reaction greeted the information. Though, Obasanjo later denied endorsing both men.The truth of the matter is that Lamido/Amaechi 2015 ticket has elicited interest from many quarters. Of note however is that political scientists,researchers and analysts have directed attention to Sule Lamido as a person, ostensibly to see his marketability. But in truth, is this man, Sule Lamido marketable in all ramifications as far as Nigeria Presidency is concerned? The answer to this question is simply YES.Politically conscious Nigerians as well as political scientists will easily tell you on enquiry that Obasanjo himself became President of Nigeria two times not because he put food on the tables of . ...

GOODLUCK JONATHAN’S 2015 POSTERS: ARE NORTHERN NIGERIANS THAT POOR IN REASONING We read in the dailies how some unscrupulous persons pasted posters of Goodluck Jonathan in Abuja on New Year day to announce his intention to contest the 2015 presidential election. The posters, according to presidential spokes men are not from the President and should be ignored. In politics anything can happen. Political opponent in Nigeria do print posters to discredit people as to cause confusion. I expect these animals (good for nothing Northern politicians) to reason and appreciate this fact with a wave of the hand and dismiss such posters. The posters were pasted as an excuse to cause more violence in the North. For the purpose of the records, I am an intellectual who documents crises in Nigeria including the recent Boko Haram crisis and I must say at this point that in the intellectual cycle, we are disappointed with this new development. For a mere poster that can be pasted by anybody to amount to unwarranted attac ...

Do you really know where your own congressman stands on most issues? Do you know where his general governing philosophy is? Do you know his name? My congressman is Harper (MS3). He is a member of the Republican party. When I ask him he will tell me he is conservative. When he is campaigning in Mississippi he is conservative. When he votes on highly visible bills he is usually conservative. Those are not how you really judge a congressmen. You need to know how he votes on bills and amendments that are not as visible. You need to know what he does in committee rooms. You need to see how much pork he bargains for. Some people who know Harper much better than I say that he is not half as conservative as even the people in his home county believe he is. The primary races prior to the 2014 General Election are coming soon. We need to take a very hard look at all of our congressmen and congresswomen before rubber stamping them in the primary races. Comments are welcome.
Maybe He'll Move to Warren ABC News A former Republican candidate for Congress in New Mexico is being held for allegedly stalking his opponent after he was previously arrested for allegedly slashing her tires. Gary Smith, 56, was arrested Wednesday on felony aggravated stalking charges when former Republican nominee for Congress Janice Arnold-Jones' husband spotted Smith's car near their Albuquerque home on New Year's Day. Arnold-Jones' surveillance video also captured the red car pulling up near her driveway, according to police. Det. Lorenzo Garcia told ABC News Wednesday that Smith made a statement that he didn't know driving by Arnold-Jones' home was a violation of his bail, although a judge told him to stay away from the premises after he was arrested Dec. 28, and charged with criminal damage to property for allegedly slashing her tires. "A candidate for Congress was violating another candidate's vehicle. These are all stalking charges. Who knows if he was there all night, if he was planning to do va ...

OUR FOUNDING FATHERS OBJECTED TO TAXATION without representation ~ HA! ~ they should see it today with representation. My advice to Republicans is that LOW INCOME PEOPLE should pay taxes at a lower overall rate because the first $10,000 of a person's income is subsistence ~ the bare minimum cost to provide food, clothing and shelter. Assessing income tax on that income could mean that the government would gain a few hundred dollars in revenue ~ but the low-income taxpayer would be forced into starvation or homelessness.

So here’s what I would like: meaningful entitlement reform – not to turn Social Security into private accounts, not to take a voucher approach to Medicare –but, adjust the age for Social Security, CPI changes and means testing and look beyond the ten-year window. I cannot in good conscience raise the debt ceiling without addressing the long term debt problems of this country and I wil ...

Education: University of Notre Dame Law School , University of Notre Dame. Summary: She has 20+ years' experience in curriculum and other program development and delivery. I am already reading so many pundits and other talking heads analyzing the disaster that was this year's elections. I am adding my own ten cents. Here goes: 1. We are outnumbered. We accurately foresaw the enthusiasm, the passion, the commitment, the determination, and the turnout. Married women, men, independents, Catholics, evangelicals - they all went for Romney in percentages as high or higher than the groups which voted for McCain in 2008. It wasn't enough. What we saw in the election was a tipping point: we are now at a place where there are legitimately f ...

A question to everyone out there that thinks the people on Capitol Hill are *** and we need to get rid of all of them... How do you propose we get better candidates? (This is an honest question.) Don't say we need to pay them less, because the truly great minds in our country are in most cases already refusing to run for office at the current financial compensation, so why would they suddenly run for office knowing they'll get even less. Don't say term limits, because again, nothing attracts good people like telling them to drop their already great career (and possibly lose their pensions if they have one) to come work a crappy job that is guaranteed to make people hate them and kick their *** out the door after a fixed period of time. Don't say civic duty, because that option has been there all along and it hasn't done squat to improve the quality of the candidates. So seriously, aside from increasing their financial compensation (which I admit isn't guaranteed to work, but has been shown to work in ...

Speaker of the House? John Boehner doesn't deserve that title. Emergency funds for Sandy victims not essential? Is he kidding? Did he dare look at the destruction the storm caused at the Jersey shore? How about Staten Island? Breezy Point? Seriously this is the third most powerful man in our country turning his back on those people who lost everything. I bet he thought Katrina was just a little rain. I think it's time for a little Clockwork Orange. Let's put Boehner in a room, wire his eyes open and force him to see videos of the destruction. Because this moron cannot see what this storm did to millions. He has some nerve being an elected official never mind the Speaker of the House. It's ridiculous.
Special thanks go out to members of Congress and the POTUS for passing a "cliff" averting bill that creates hundreds of billions additional deficit with massive new spending AND raised payroll taxes to boot. We clearly elect the lowest common denominator to send to Congress. There's not a single "leader" among them. Which begs the question, which are the bigger *** the elected officials who create larger deficits under the guise of addressing the deficit or the electorate for sending the same cheats, liars and thieves back to Washington time and time again?

Decision on MIM MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi hate-speech today January 3, 2013 Bhagyanagar (Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh) : After hearing arguments over maintainability of a memo filed by Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi's counsel on his alleged hate speech, the chief metropolitan magistrate on Wednesday said the order will be pronounced on Thursday whether or not the court will take cognizance of the petition against Akbaruddin. Akbaruddin is the younger brother of MIM MP Asaduddin Owaisi. An advocate, Kashimshetty Karunasagar, had filed a petition against the MIM MLA for his alleged hate speech against the Hindu community in Nirmal in Adilabad district. In his complaint, Karunasagar said he happened to stumble upon Akbaruddin's hate speech - uploaded on youtube - made at a public meeting at Adilabad on December 24, about 300 km from Hyderabad. Among other contentious things that Akbaruddin said was Hindus have so many gods and goddesses, and every eight days, there are new gods coming up. "We kn ...

Does compulsory voting make us a better democracy?
So you’re a liberal fan of republican Chris Christie? Not so fast…
Let's give this man a round of applause, so good; "Let's look at the Australian system and why it is better in every way than the American system, of which "compulsory voting" is a significant part. If I could change one thing about the American system it would be to institute compulsory voting as there are a bunch of run on effects and requisite structural changes that are required to make it functional. The parts in total are: Compulsory voting. Preferential voting. Australian Electoral Commission. Voting infrastructure. Pen & paper voting. Before we begin you also have to understand that in Australia you don't vote for the head office. You vote for a local representative and if the party that representative is in wins the most seats the representatives vote for the Prime Minister. Technically. In practice most people vote for/against the leader of the government and the leader of the opposition, with little attention to local representatives. But, and this is important, it means that the Prime Minister ...
Anyone else besides me feel this way about TODAY'S U.S. Government? :)
I guess I have to except that the majority of Americans are content with slowly losing freedoms and liberties. Content with not simply leaving our children w/ insane debt, but more so they must be content with our kids and other future generations being raised in a "socialist" type mentality where they'll feel entitled. I was the guy that thought socialism was too strong a word, until recently. Class Ware fare, distribution of wealth, etc seem to be cool w most. It's a different country we live in these days, that's for sure. Perhaps I am odd in that I like a balanced budget and to not spend money I don't have. This rant has nothing to do w firearms. This is solely due to my frustrations over the "deal" made to stop the fiscal cliff. I still don't see where exactly we are cutting spending. Can somebody tell me? I'm no billionaire, but why are they evil again? Almost all of them have private charities, create jobs and technologies and are great for this country as is. They also ALREADY pay more t ...
I am so sick of Obama referring to my social security and Medicare as an entitlement. I have been putting money into this "so called" entitlement since I was 18 years old (50 years this August). Yet I haven't heard one word about taking away the REAL entitlements! Such as welfare & food stamps. The way I see it, if these people would get a job like those of us that DO work, then these entitlements could be eliminated and tons of money would be saved. If these people want a check, then get up and go to work! Too many freeloaders out there!! Welfare and food stamps were intended for those that are not able to work, not for those that are too sorry to work. Okay, I feel better now! Going to bed, so I can get up and go to work tomorrow!
25 Facts That The Mainstream Media Doesn’t Really Want To Talk About Right Now By Michael, on December 23rd, 2012 For decades, the mainstream media in the United States was accustomed to being able to tell the American people what to think. Unfortunately for them, a whole lot of Americans are starting to break free from that paradigm and think for themselves. A Gallup survey from earlier this year found that 60 percent of all Americans “have little or no trust” in the mainstream media. More people than ever are realizing that the mainstream media is giving them a very distorted version of “the truth” and they are increasingly seeking out alternative sources of information. In the United States today, just six giant media corporations control the mainstream media. Those giant media corporations own television networks, cable channels, movie studios, radio stations, newspapers, magazines, publishing houses, music labels and even many prominent websites. But now thanks to the Internet the mai ...

After careful inspection of the Congressional record, to see who voted to increase taxes and increase spending,.I could not find one Libertarian that voted for it. The only ones that voted for that mess, were Republicans and Democrats. Tell me again how voting for a Libertarian is a wasted vote.
"There is only one group to blame for the continued suffering of these innocent victims: the House majority and their speaker, John Boehner."
As I prepare to retire from Congress, I’d like to suggest a few New Year’s resolutions for my colleagues to consider. For the sake of liberty, peace, and prosperity I certainly hope more members of Congress consider the strict libertarian constitutional approach to government in 2013.
From our fine Senators of North Carolina on the "FC" Vote... Senator Richard Burr: “While the deal we voted on tonight was far from perfect and not as comprehensive as I had hoped, I supported this proposal because it protects 99% of Americans from increased taxes, it provides permanent certainty on the estate tax and Alternative Minimum Tax, it provides one year of protection for the reimbursement of doctors, it extends unemployment insurance for one year, and the net result of the deal provides over $600 billion that should be used to pay down our national debt.” Senator Kay Hagan: “While I believe it is unacceptable that Washington has once again waited until the eleventh hour to find a solution, and though I would have preferred a comprehensive, balanced solution to avert the fiscal cliff and begin reducing the deficit, I voted for the plan put forth tonight so that we can stop a tax hike on middle class families in North Carolina. The average family in our state will see their taxes increase by ...

Daniel asked me to post this. It is important info: For the King and Liberty, Daniel Courter Since the tragedy at Sandy Hook we have all seen an increase in anti-gun rhetoric; even moderate Republicans and Democrats have hinted that they might support new gun laws. Obama recently stated that gun control is going to be an important objective in 2013, and there are specific gun control bills that will be introduced to the legislature by Senator Dianne Feinstein and Representative Carolyn McCarthy (summaries here: Assault Weapons Ban is so draconian in its intent and so impractical in its execution that it makes McCarthy’s High-Capacity Magazine Ban seem reasonable by comparison. Gun-control advocates who reluctantly oppose the Feinstein ban over its sheer bureaucratic impossibility will be eager to support a lesser bill instead. Marginal Republicans will be tempted to see the magazine ban as a less-controversial gun law that could win them points in more liberal states. This "good bill/bad bill" tactic is ...
I have absolutely no authority to repost this. However, I am giving full credit to the author. I think it is a telling piece with insight into what is going on in Washington. "I mention all this because the juxtaposition of Democrats' national success and the continued strength of increasingly conservative Republicans at the state level and in the House is one of the main reasons why we keep getting into standoffs like the fiscal cliff debate of the last few weeks. And rest assured, we will keep getting into them — the New Year's Day fiscal cliff vote put off the reckoning for a couple of months, but then there will be another battle over the debt ceiling, and more showdowns after that. The president can claim an electoral mandate, albeit not a huge one, for his policy priorities. But the Republicans still maintain a solid, if smaller, majority in the House, and most GOP House members have more to fear from primary challengers from the right than from Democratic General Election opponents — meaning th ...
So who will/should be the new Speaker of the House?
Two Months To Heal by Michael O'Loughlin Seven-hundred and thirty-three million dollars. That’s how much the Washington Post estimates the two candidates spent on television advertising during this presidential election. Of that, just shy of $658 million was spent on negative ads, both President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney choosing to use their money to tear one another down about 90% percent of the time. And did it work? We feel divided, bitter, and cynical. (Note: The total spent by candidates, parties, and outside groups in this election will add up to some $2.6 billion.) This morning, I suspect, half of us are happy and half disappointed or angry. It’s now clear that Barack Obama will serve a second term as President of the United States. But unlike in 2008, when he rode into office awash in a sea of triumphant enthusiasm, when the electorate, though perhaps divided, seemed generally to take pride in electing the nation’s first black president, 2012 finds Obama limping across the finish line, i ...

From Frank Yesterday. If either candadate running for this office under the Republican banner wins, we all win. We just cannot go back to Carole Porter. When that moonbat was in office she never responded to anyone that questioned ler lockstep voting record of the Democrat Party (C.P.A.) Please don't put her back in office. It was an embarrasment. Granite Stater, Tomorrow is Primary Election Day and we must send a strong message to former Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter for November. As mayor of New Hampshire’s largest city, I took on the task of restoring order and discipline to Manchester’s finances. I did that by cutting spending, successfully fighting for the city’s first tax cut in a decade, and slashing municipal borrowing by 50%. As a result, Manchester’s economy grew and the Queen City became a better place to live. In a broken Washington, I’ve tried to bring that common sense approach to my service as your Congressman. As I see it, my job is to bring more New Hampshire thinking to Washi ...
Today is the State Primary Election Day. Get out and vote!!! Here in Coos County, please vote for TANYA BATCHELDER for Register of Deeds. If you live in State SENATE DISTRICT 17: Allenstown, Chichester, Deerfield, Epsom, Loudon, Northwood, Nottingham, Pembroke, Pittsfield, Raymond, and Strafford; please vote for HOWARD PEARL!! Thank you!
Tomorrow is Primary Day. Salem has 18,000 registered voters. About 20 % will turn out to vote. That means less than 3600 people will determine the future of NH Government for Salem, because in Salem , whoever wins the primary, will probably win in the Fall. There are12 candidates for nine seats. That means the winners will only need approximately 1200 votes, or more, to be elected, a very small number. Right now, any one of these candidates can win this election. Therefore, it is absolutely crucial that all my friends and constituents turn out to vote. Because of new rules, more PAC money is being spent to elect a candidate than ever before. Many important issues are at stake, but THE biggest one for Salem in terms of savings on property taxes is the gambling issue. Eight candidates favor gambling, four candidates do not. Make sure you know where your candidate stands on this issue before you vote. That issue also includes the Governor's race as well. All 12 Candidates are Republicans, and ...

Primary election day should've been tomorrow
Well friends as Primary Day draws nears, I am amazed at all the new people I have met on the Gjonaj campaign, hopefully I will remain friends with many of them as time goes by .It's also interesting about all the different personalities that join together in a common cause . On the Down Side of course, you always now and then might meet a Individual who really ,as they use to say on ]Report Card Grades, when I was a small child in school "Does Not Work and Play Well with Others", But I guess that's life. After the Primary Election this coming Thursday Sept.13 and after Mark Gjonaj's Victory I hope To be able to be even clearer about the Fine, Wonderful and Kind people that I have had a chance to work with during the Campaign . As they use to say on the New's Broadcasts" Stay Tuned for More Folks" .And please,please remember to vote for Mark and to ask a friend or neighbor to join with you on your way to the polls to vote.
Support in any way that you can...if you beleive that Barack should have a second term, make sure that you vote on Primary Day and in the General Election & directly encourage others to do the same. Give of you financial resources if you can, volunteer some time to the campaign. There is much work to be done, and if we all pitch in with our time, talent and financial resources, Barack Obama will win a second term.
Only 2 days left until Primary Day. Only 58 days left until Election Day.
Is it just me, or does anyone else think its kind of weird that primary election day is September 11th?
Remember everyone voting isn't just for election day, also remember to vote during the primary's.
As you may or may not know, this is my husband. He is running for re-election in Goffstown to be your state Rep. We would appreciate your vote on Sept. 11, primary day and again in November if he is fortunate enough to get through the primary. If you don't see his name on your ballot, feel free to write him in. He works harder to be your state rep than anyone I know. And all for a lousy $100 per year. Thank you.

Sept. 4 The Post: Simply stated, why should voters elect you? I believe that I am the best candidate for Senate District for many reasons. One is that during my two terms as State Representative, I did not forget where my primary responsibilities lay with serving the citizens of East Providence. In this capacity, I have demonstrated courage, compassion and leadership. Courage – I have stood and spoken against the state house democratic leadership whenever I thought it was the right action. Yes, I did vote against the Pension reform bill that was supported by the leadership because I believe that it was the wrong way to proceed. It was introduced into the House without proper examination of other alternatives and without input from those directly affected – the members of the Employee Retirement System of Rhode Island. Subsequently, the City of Providence negotiated with the members of its pension system and reached an agreement. Due to this action, there will be no expensive court challenge. One cann ...

Tuesday, August 7th is Primary Election Day. Many of you know that I am running for the Democratic nomination for the Missouri House of Representatives 28th District. My opponent in the primary is Tom McDonald...a nice man who lives in downtown Independence. The 28th District is virtually all of RAYTOWN. I am running because RAYTOWN has the opportunity to send a RAYTOWNER to Jefferson City to represent us. For too many years RAYTOWN has been represented by 2 or 3 different people as it has been split into several districts. We've been beholden to the political whims of Independence and Lee's Summit for far too long. If you live in the 28th, I ask for your vote. If you have friends or family in the 28th, I ask for you to tell them about me.

As Missouri's August Primary Election Day fast approaches, I often think of the candidates (and their volunteers) campaigning door-to-door in this terrible heat. Most of the heat-related weather records in the St. Louis area (being tied or broken this year) are from either the summer of 1936 or the summer of 1980. The latter was my first campaign for the state legislature, and by the time I knocked on my third door I looked like I'd already been out all day. Glad I did it then, glad I'm not doing it now.
dreams of a day when the U.S. American electorate becomes both socially conscious and politically savvy, engaging everyone in legislative processes, rich and poor, young and old, cross-culturally in (A) community organizing & economic development, (B) electoral organizing, i.e. political campaigns for office, (C) legislative advocacy, i.e. lobbying. Voting is fundamental but not nearly enough. Vote NO to the 2 constitutional amendments, vote for and campaign with progressive candidates, and hold the mediocre, status quo establishment candidates accountable by replacing them with better representation. Voters should not rely on candidates to run campaigns; voters should be mobilizing their personal networks of relatives, friends and neighbors to vote not only on the November 6, 2012 General Election Day, but also get out to vote early on the Primary Election Day, Tuesday, August 14, 2012!

I detest the Primary nominating process in it's present form. There should be a National Primary Election Day in June, where everyone nationwide selects the candidate, followed by the General in November. Mitt Romney just yesterday won enough delegates to clinch the GOP nomination, yet he's been the only guy in the race since March? This is idiotic.
Early Vote polls are closed, so you HAVE to vote on Tuesday, Primary Election Day, if you missed the early opportunity. Enjoy Memorial Day, and then come home and find your precinct polling place here on Tuesday:

Over the coming days up to Primary Election Day on the 29th I will be posting the nameless faceless pictures of those who have early voted for Commissioner Gregory Parker or those who have committed to vote for him. I chose to not include faces because it is the average citizen who is faceless to politicians that will elect one their own to fill the unexpired term on the RRC. And for all you other politicians seeking office, remember this, money doesn't win elections, it is the nameless faceless people who put you in your ivory tower and it is those same people you have forgotten who will remove you if you aren't truly serving "We The People." We are watching and we are voting. We are not for the person with the slickest ad or fattest campaign wallet or the candidate with friends in high places, but for the candidate who takes the time to listen and then act in our interest.
To My Nebraska Friends and Family FB: Tomorrow is Primary Election Day. All Political Parties will have their candidates on their ballots, so regardless of what poltical affiliation you subscribe to...VOTE! [an unpaid political announcement]
REMINDER IN TEXAS: Early Voting begins today and continues through May 25. Primary Election Day will be May 29. This is an historic election in Texas (due to redistricting) because 90% of the seats in the Texas House and Senate will be decided this month; not November.
Day 5 of pursuing turkeys This is from Tuesday. Primary Election Day was a good opportunity to get a turkey. Since I hear turkeys north of me I decided to meet the neighbor to the north. He gave me permission to follow gobbling onto his property. Got in place and moved toward the gobbling around 6a. A tom responded to my turkey calls! At sunrise there was one woodcock, lots of catbirds and yellow warblers. I snuck up on the strutting grounds. At about 40 yards, he saw me through a bush, spooked and ran. Bummer! The next gobbler I heard was 1.5 hour later at the spot I set up on day 1. My feet were soaked, but now I know exactly where they strut.

Primary Election Day: as a newly-minted independent, I can only vote in the special election for the state house. Have to write election stories for the paper. Ready to call the Democratic Primary for Barack Hussein Obama, who, if you were wondering, will sew up the Democratic nomination with this win. Willard Mitt Romney should win over favorite son and dropped-out Rick Santorum. Local primaries have little mystery. Best races will be US Senate on the GOP side (to challenge Bob Casey-lite) and Attorney General (to fill Corbett's seat) on the D side.
It's Primary Election Day in A great day to read/re-read The Politics of Liberation by & Charles Hamilton
