Most people read a lot more meaning from body language and other non-verbal factors than they gain from the words a person says. Barack Obama clearly won all three debates with Old McCain in terms of body language and the overall “Vibes” he gave off. During the first televised debate in 1960, Republican Nixon looked awful – sweaty and nervous with a “five-o’clock” shadow. Kennedy, on the other hand, looked cool, calm and collected. Sounds a lot like the stark contrasts we saw during the debate in Mississippi. Lesson is to study the candidate’s body language for clues into what they are really thinking. Trust your intuition and gut reaction.
I must note that this and most of my writing is intimately informed by watching MSNBC news coverage (6-8 hours per day.) Thanks especially to Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow, Mika Brzezinski and Eugene Robinson (also of the Washington Post.) Also, I am increasingly impressed with someone I used to not like because of his political views – Pat Buchanan (oh that we all have could have his energy, enlightenment and enthusiasm in our later years.) You may want to consult my first article on this BLOG: MSNBC Makes Most Sense of the World (January 18, 2008).
During the Republicans’ wretched convention they launched a foolish attack against Barack Obama’s experience as a community organizer. Response to these ignorant tirades has included reactions from those who have worked their whole lives to help the less advantaged – namely community organizers. Why would the Republicans spend a whole night of their convention attacking ordinary people? With the nation watching, the Republicans mocked, dismissed, and actually laughed out loud at Americans who engage in community service and organizing.
During my Ph.D. program in Rural Sociology I studied community development (organization). During the past two decades I have worked with groups of farmers, citizens and others to organize their efforts to make improvements in environmental quality, economic development, and social justice. These are clearly the types of efforts we need to give a higher priority if we really want to improve our nation and the world. In this article I document the reaction to this attack on community organizers and explain the kinds of important work that they do. It will also be clear why Barack’s experience as a community organizer will be the key to success his of his GRASS ROOTS campaignin November.
Over the past year I have watched and recorded all of Barack Obama’s televised speeches and debates. I am also reading his awesome book “The Audacity of Hope.” Now I have collected some of his key quotes for your reading pleasure. Truly he is the smartest and most eloquent person to run for president in my lifetime. The quotes are organized into four main topical areas: American Dream and Values; Change We Can Believe In; Politics and Policies; and Solutions Through Social Service.
Hope you find these gems to be informative, inspirational and influential. He clearly understands what our country needs for the future. Enjoy all the “bumper stickers” that I found on the Internet. Truly there are as many positive reasons to vote for Obama-Biden as there are negative reasons to vote against McCain-Palin. Now that the Obama campaign is fighting back I will shift more of my writing to the positive changes we can expect under an Obama administration. Truly his election represents the best and last HOPE we have to save our country and the planet.
John McCain does not have the temperment to become president. He is a vengeful vigilante and compulsive liar who has trouble controlling his temper. These and other severe personality disorders are due in large part to the five-plus years he spent as a POW in Viet Nam. The psychotic behaviors McCain exhibits are a result of the post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). We really cannot trust this crazy old codger who has lost touch with reality. For more see: Old McCain Should Buy a Farm – Not Become President.
In fact, many of these charges about McCain’s mental illness were originally raised by the Bush campaign back in 2000. At that time, Republicans clearly were worried about McCain’s PTSD and related emotional instability. Now, eight years later and the evidence is clear that McCain is even crazier and less stable. Our world will be in real trouble if this loose cannon and his redneck sidekick are elected. Time to send this discredited old cultural warrior back to Arizona to spend his golden years in a rocker like other diabled senior citizens.
Welcome to another installment of my call to arms for sane and caring people against Sarah Palin. In this collection you will read about how frightened Alaskans warn that she is “Racist, Sexist, Vindictive And Mean.” This is based in part on an open letter called About Sarah Palin by Anne Kilkenny. To start, check the first hand account of how upon learning that Obama had won over Clinton, Sarah loudly proclaimed “So Sambo beat the bitch!” Finally is an open letter to Clinton detailing What Hillary Should Say Now.
As I have argued before given his ancient age and torture-induced PTSD McCain Should Buy a Farm, Not Become President. Now with his tough talk about fighting everyone there is strong evidence that the Republicans are openly and proudly the party of rednecks. He will die very soon and we would be stuck with a bunch of ruthless rednecks from way up north (and way right!!) Also, I argued early on (May 25) that Rednecks had Run America for Too Long. This article also builds further support for the fact that The VP Candidate is a “F#*kin’ Redneck” like all her friends and family. Very scary information so pass this on to your friends!!

She kills animals for fun, kicks people’s butts, and raises redneck kids. UPDATE (10/23/08): Sarah said this week she is “Proud to be a Redneck Woman,” so there is no “Might be” about it (See Parker story at end.) The upcoming presidential election is truly now a full-scale culture war – as rednecks fight to hold back the rising tides of progressives, youth, ethnic minorities, and smart people in general. I wrote on May 25 about how Rednecks had Run America for Too Long. Now the McCain-Palin Redneck Express boldly attacks our rights. “Friends Don’t Let Friends Vote for Rednecks.”
VP candidate, Sarah Palin, loves to shoot guns and is proud of being able to field dress a moose (that means to chop it up when still warm after you shoot it.) She and Cheney should go hunting. Another story is how the young hockey puck (Levi Johnson) who has impregnated Bristol (the sex pistol) is a self-proclaimed “fuckin’ redneck.” Anyhow, read on for some hot-off-the-foreign press articles and funny pix. This is going to be the starkest choice in values and vision that the world has seen. Put the Alaska Hillbillies back in the freezer along with all their unwanted moose stew.
