    Please chip in $45 or whatever you can afford before tomorrow’s deadline:

    Thank you — and see you out there,

        Just once, I would like to have a representative in Washington. For as long as I have lived here, I have had NONE. No senators, no congressperson, has ever represented me and my wishes. Mr Carmona is an amazing man, with an incredible life story to tell. He deserves to be sent to Washington to stand for the people of AZ.

      I saw an interview with him a few months ago — I think on Lawrence’s show. I was VERY impressed with him. It reinforced my belief that political ideology and status quo can be overcome with spectacular candidates. If you give people someone stellar to vote for, many people will vote for that person, even if they don’t believe in everything the person represents. The Democratic Party needs to identify and support stars tailor made for their constituencies, and we could win a lot more of these races.

    PBO fought for and got reauthorization of the export-import bank. Something that could benefit many US businesses but the Chamber of Commerce wants to spend money to defeat the President ? Talk about going against your own best interest.

    One Sunday morning an old cowboy entered a church just before services were to begin. Although the old man and his clothes were spotlessly clean, he wore jeans, a denim shirt and boots that were very worn and ragged. In his hand he carried a worn out old hat and an equally worn out Bible.

    The church he entered was in a very upscale and exclusive part of the city. It was the largest and most beautiful church the old cowboy had ever seen. The people of the congregation were all dressed with expensive clothes and accessories.

    As the cowboy took a seat, the others moved away from him. No one greeted, spoke to, or welcomed him. They were all appalled at his appearance and did not attempt to hide it.

    As the old cowboy was leaving the church, the preacher approached him and asked the cowboy to do him a favor.

    “Before you come back in here again, have a talk with God, and ask him what he thinks would be appropriate attire for worship.” The old cowboy assured the preacher he would.

    The next Sunday, he showed back up for the services wearing the same ragged jeans, shirt, boots, and hat. Once again he was completely shunned and ignored.

    The preacher again approached the man and said, “I thought I asked you to speak to God before you came back to our church.”

    “I did,” replied the old cowboy.

    “If you spoke to God, what did he tell you the proper attire should be for worshiping in here?” asked the preacher.

    “Well, sir, God told me that He didn’t have a clue what I should wear. He said He’d never been in this church.”

      Willard Romney says that the Constitution should be amended to require 3 years of business experience as qualification to be President. In that case, Romney does not think that the vast majority of Presidents, beginning with George Washington, were really qualified to be presidents. By the way, has Romney forgotten that the last businessman president, George W. Bush, is the one who tanked the economy? Will any body in the media have the courage to remind Willard “Mitt” Romney that the government of the United States is not a business?

    Hello TOD,

    That is a beautiful picture of the First Lady. Our President is the best. In reading the posts here all I can say is WOW. There is a breeze

    blowing fresh air. This is a great site and I am seeking advice from you all. My last potential job encounter was in the most liberal city in Texas.

    I was referred, after meeting a person on the community tennis court, to a well known therapist that was highly regarded by her peers. During

    our meeting the therapist spoke of plenty of opportunities in Austin due to the high demand and short supply of professionals in the helping

    profession. I left the meeting with high hopes of finding employment with any company that would give me an interview. To keep the dilemma

    short and 2 months later after not getting a single interview, I moved to Greensboro, NC to seek employment. I spent over 4 years to no avail

    sending resumes for positions that I was qualified and overqualified for without one single interview. I did work with the Census for two terms.

    So, now I am reaching out for help. I have one class left to finish my license professional counselor’s degree with my practicum still to complete.

    I have a degree in biology with a long work history of good standing in clerical, a lab technician, volunteering, case management, district

    director and various other jobs. For the past twenty years I have been told to take any job and things will work out. Now, I have a huge student

    loan and still unemployed. Any advice on how I can get back to work? Thank you Chips for allowing me to post here.

        Have you checked the jobs listed in those professional journals? Checked USA.gov? Once you get your license, can you counsel from home office? Don’t want to sound condescending, which emails often sound, just trying to think out of the box for you:)

    Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, chairman of the Democratic Governors Association, will campaign in Wisconsin Thursday on behalf of Democratic nominee Tom Barrett, who is looking to unseat Gov. Scott Walker in the hotly contested recall race June 5.
