Conservative Corporate Advocacy Group ALEC Behind Voter Disenfranchisement Efforts – Campus Progress

It has become abundantly clear who and what is the mindset behind not only the Voter ID strategies, but union-busting and the likes. Conservative Corporate Advocacy Group ALEC Behind Voter Disenfranchisement Efforts – Campus Progress.

There is also a resource ALEC-Exposed that goes into depth about the plans of this group, working on legislation across this country on a variety of areas and with the Murdoch ‘tap-tap’ could be global. 

People this is a plea for you to wake-up, this country is under attack and it is not only from a group of radicals from abroad, but it right here in our own government. The gop / tea party is so set on seeing that President Obama fails, that they would let the country go into default in order to make it happen. Minority leader McConnell claimed that the President would be a one-termer.And the debt ceiling stalemate is part of that great plan. Remember: this is the party that ran on ‘jobs’ in 2010, has there been any bills introduced that will create jobs? None!

Please don’t get me wrong, I am not happy with the way the President is running his part of the government. But, I would not want to fathom what things would be looking like if it were President McCain.

Netroots Nation 2011…

This is my first Netroots Nation conference and I must say I leave feeling very impressed, but also pretty overwhelmed. Being surrounded by so many people who blog for a living or just getting their message out to the masses had my head spinning. Techniques that were shared in several of the sessions I attended made me want to run out and write about the conference.

Welcome to Netroots Nation...

Being somewhat of a neophyte to the world of blogging, it was pretty damn cool networking with the powerhouses of the blogosphere and picking their brains on best practices  has given me more confidence to tell my stories. The sessions ranged from storytelling to getting technology into poor areas just to name a few.

Freedom from Fear Awards Program

If you don’t know about Netroots Nation, it was started a few years ago during the Howard Dean ‘fifty state’ strategy to become the President of the United States. The strategy was to pull progressives, new school liberals together using social networking as a medium to connect people all across this country and across the world for that matter. The movement took a life of its own and this week-end the conference attendance was the highest one to date, 3000.

These people care about what is happening to our country and they want to restore the American Dream, so let’s work hard to make this happen. Next years conference will be held in Providence, RI the goal is to double this years numbers. I hope to see you there!

I don’t agree with the comments about our men & women in the military being lazy…, however the rest of the piece is very intriguing, the fact that the current day salaries of teachers have them priced out of 32 metropolitan cities in America of home ownership.

Men, Women, and Children

Something has to be done before the state of Wisconsin becomes a gestapo state.

Take a look at what happen the other day in the capital:

Not only is the family not allowed to use their freedom of expression rights, but the Mother is given a citation about the incident. Absolutely amazing. Please don’t sit back and let our state be taken over by the corporate thugs, we cannot compete with their money, but we have the votes.

Tell your friends, family members, and strangers to get out to vote on April 5th for Kloppenberg.

Separation of Church & State…

If you missed the multitude of clips that showed the debate with Chris Coons (D) and Christine O’Donnell (R) when the topic of what the contents in the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States was, then you’re in for a real eye-opener. I am not a ‘professorial’ of the Constitution like as shown in this clip featuring Anderson Cooper of CNN’s 360, that Ms. O’Donnell claims to be.
