The Monster That Ate My Vote

keep those emails comingFrom Keith Tucker

Aloha;
War of the worlds was broadcast originally on Halloween, so this Halloween
season I felt that it was time to re-visit that theme with our modern
technological terrors. Let there be paper ballots, before it’s too late.

New Jersey Senate Race: Military Familes Speak Out, Questions Both Candidates

Posted in Email, Main Blog (All Posts) on October 7th, 2006 10:18 am by HL

From: Amy J. Higer of The South Orange-Maplewood Committee to Stop the War

In August, members of Military Families Speak Out–Bergen County NJ
(_www.MFSObergencounty.org_ (http://www.mfsobergencounty.org/) ) sat down with
both candidates in the NJ Senate race and asked each about their views on the
war in Iraq. The answers are enlightening. I am attaching a leaflet MFSO put
together reproducing the questions and answers from both interviews.

Here are their answers

Amy, there you go, thanks for the info

Message from Our Webhost On Foley Scandal

Posted in Email, Main Blog (All Posts) on October 5th, 2006 8:10 am by HL

Many Republicans are worried the congressman Mark Foley’s child sex scandal will hurt
Republicans in this year’s elections. But it may end up helping them because it draws attention
away from all the other scandals that might affect the election even more.

The Foley scandal distracts from Bush’s network of secret torture camps.
The Foley scandal distracts from the fact that the war in Iraq is making terrorism worse.
The Foley scandal distracts from the fact that Osama bin Laden is still free.
The Foley scandal distracts from the fact that Iraq is in a civil war.
The Foley scandal distracts from the fact that 2700+ soldiers died in Iraq for nothing.
The Foley scandal distracts from the fact that we are now losing the war in Afghanistan, too.
The Foley scandal distracts from the Jack Abramoff and Tom Delay scandals.
The Foley scandal distracts from the fact that Bush let New Orleans die.
The Foley scandal distracts from the fact that the national debt is about to exceed 10 trillion dollars.
The Foley scandal distracts from the Abu Ghraib scandal. And Haliburton’s no bid contracts, global
warming, the failed war in Lebanon, failed diplomacy with Iran and North Korea, ignoring the Geneva
Conventions, the United Nations, and the Anti-ballistic missle treaty, warrantless wire tapping of our
phone conversations, no weapons of mass destruction, and Bob Woodward’s latest book “State of Denial”.

So although this sex scandal is bad for Republicans, it isn’t nearly as bad as all the other scandals.
Besides Clinton won with a sex scandal. I think Republicans are better off dealing with a sex scandal
than dealing with a record of failure.

Dear H.L.,

We’re trying to get word out about Ms.’ new “I Had An Abortion” campaign and thought that The Hollywood Liberal might be interested.

PRESS RELEASE

For Immediate Release Contact: Erin Carmany, 703-522-4201

Ms. Magazine Launches Women’s Petition on Abortion, Birth Control Groundbreaking New Petition Will Put a Face on the Abortion Issue

Arlington, VA – Ms. magazine has launched a groundbreaking new petition to make visible the millions of women in the United States who have had abortions.

“We must put a human face on the abortion issue,” said Katherine Spillar, executive editor of Ms. magazine. “Ms. calls on women who have had abortions to step forward publicly by signing our petition, which we will send to Congress, the White House, and state legislators. Politicians need to know that their decisions affect their neighbors, their colleagues, influential movers and shakers, and even their own daughters. For the sake of women in the United States and around the world, we cannot lose the right to safe and accessible abortion and access to birth control.”

The “Women’s Petition for Safe, Legal, and Accessible Abortion and Birth Control” is based on the petition that ran in the 1972 debut issue of Ms., in which 53 prominent American women, such as Ms. co-founder Gloria Steinem, publicly declared that they had undergone abortions before the procedure was legal. These women called for the repeal of anti-abortion laws in the United States to end the “untold suffering” and deaths of women who were forced to have unsafe, illegal, back-alley abortions.

Today, the new Ms. petition comes at a time when the South Dakota legislature has voted to ban abortion, and nearly a dozen states have moved similar abortion bans forward. If Roe v. Wade were overturned by the Supreme Court, 17 states would immediately outlaw abortion based on trigger laws or pre-Roe bans still on the books, and another dozen would soon follow. Already, each year, some 70,000 women in developing countries are dying because of botched, illegal abortions, caused in part by U.S. policies such as the Global Gag Rule.

The petition will be printed in the Fall issue of Ms., which hits newsstands October 10, and online at Ms. Magazine

For more information or to read the full petition, visit www.MsMagazine.com.

Jessica,
There you go. Hope it helps.

H.L. Quoted in CBS News Story….

Posted in Email, Main Blog (All Posts) on August 9th, 2006 10:41 am by HL

we get letters From Melissa McNamara CBS News Producer, and Writer
Just wanted to let you know I linked to your blog in my column on CBSNews.com today. Thanks!

H.L. Responds Melissa, thanks for using my response to The New York Times Story in your article. Corporatization is to blame for much of the problem with people not able to find decent jobs anymore. Also the Bush Economy which the mainstream media constantly tries to prop up is not nearly as good as the media reports it to be. People are working for less money, with less or no health care, higher energy prices, higher rents, meanwhile corporate profits are at all time highs. I believe this situation will only get worse, being that both Democrats, and Republicans are beholden to their corporate masters, and are only concerned with their corporate donors, and don’t give a damn about their constituents. Joe Lieberman comes to mind. He lost his primary election yesterday mainly because of his pro war stance, and his subservience to Bush, but he refused to budge when the people spoke. He was bought and paid for by corporate interests. Thanks again for the mention.
H.L
Here is the the story.

Stephen Colbert Sparks Wiki War

Excerpt
Are There Men In Your Office?

One of the most blogged stories on the New York Times website since it was first published last week is about the rise of voluntary unemployment among men. Men between the ages of 30 and 54 are voluntarily dropping out of work, the New York Times reports, unable to find jobs that interest them. According to the newspaper, about 10 percent of men in this age group—or about 3 million workers—are out of work and not looking for jobs.

And, apparently, some of them are bloggers.

“I am the poster child for this story. I am 44 years old and have not had a steady full time job in 2 1/2 years. Not because I don’t want to work, but because there is no longer the fulltime decent paying, job with medical benefits available anymore,” blogs The Hollywood Liberal, a man in the film industry. “This was never what I wanted.”
bloggers sympathize with the unemployed men. “The men in the article aren’t slothful or complacent; they are teaching at community colleges, volunteering in their communities, learning musical instruments, delving into historical debates on Charlemagne, trying their hand at writing novels. They’re leading full and healthy lives; they’re just not making much money,”
