    Just a few more weeks to go, Dear TOD family. Let us all keep our nerves, keep our faith, trust in the Lord and pray for our most dear President. Remember, we saw far more poison / evil from the crazy right in 2008 but the good Lord did not abandon our President. Why would he do so now, when our President’s work is not yet done. If God be for us, who can be against us.

    Tomorrow I will see President Obama in SF. How exciting. I am going with 2 other volunteers, and because I entered a predictive dialer contest I also won 2 free tickets, so I am taking my daughters. We opted for the sitting down seats that will be far away from the President – but as a family of shorties, I figured it would be hard to see and tiring to stand in the middle of the auditorium.

    I will give you the juicy details Tuesday.

    • October 7, 2012 at 5:24 pm

    Once again, with feeling—–I am making my own personal plea that we keep religion out of our political discussions here. We all come from different backgrounds and have differing opinions on this subject, and many feel religion should play no role in our politics or our government. I just wish we could concentrate on what we all agree on—–the re-election of President Obama, and other Dems, and keep our religious feelings personal. I’m sure people who feel the need to include a religious message would be offended if there were others posting an anti-religious message every day. The opposite is also true. Forward with what unites us, not what divides us.

    • 48 EricFive

      So long as no one is disparaging anyones religion (or lack of religion) I don’t have a problem with the prayers some give to PBO and our cause. Let’s not create divisions unnecessarily. These “religious messages” are all in support of PBO. I’m not sure it is possible to compose an “anti-religious message” in support of PBO, but would not try to deny you your right to make such a statement if you wish to. I am not offended that others may have different beliefs than I do, it is their right as an American.

        • 50 EricFive
          October 7, 2012 at 8:35 pm

          Separation of church and state means that the STATE cannot impose a religion on the populace and cannot favor one religion over another. What that has to do with someone posting a prayer in support of PBO on a blog is beyond me. You seem kinda hostile to religion, and that is your right, but why try to impose YOUR rules on your fellow posters. Live and let live is a happier way to go through this life. None of us have a monopoly on the truth.

            Lawrence was disgusted with the behavior but I think just like any job due to a code of conduct you can’t attack your co-workers. Let me know what you think.

            Randi has always said since I’ve been listening to her that their are more Democrats in this country and if we all come out and vote nothing to worry about. It just feels like more crazy people because they own the air-waves due to the telecommunications act..

    State of the Race: Romney gains with Republicans

    … – its clearly NOT time to light our hair on fire about the state of this race. Romney may have assured Republicans with his about-face lies. But he can’t win this thing with only Republican support. Independents aren’t buying what he’s trying to sell and Democrats clearly have his number


    • 91 99ts
      October 7, 2012 at 7:16 pm

      At times Politics is entertaining. For 2 years the right has been saying Romney isn’t “right enough” and the RWNJs have not supported him at all. In the debate Romney moves to the centre – attempting to woo the undecideds – and what happens – he wins the far right. Shows that they have no interest in politics – they just want a white man in the white house.

    Well, I think a couple of us Obama supporters just made each other’s day. I live in the Midwest and just got a call from the Tampa, Florida, area. It was an Obama volunteer, asking if President Obama would have my support on election day. She was very upbeat but seemed a bit hesitant, at first. I told her he has 1000% of my support and I will definitely be voting for him again. She thanked me and before she fully hung up, I heard her saying to someone in the background, “I got this really nice woman.” Well, yes, I am. Ha! And so was she, as all Obama supporters tend to be.

    Good times.

      Romney is corrupt all over the place, He’s been involved in so many deceptive shenanigans. I’ve mentioned my CPA daughter being disgusted after her firm looked over Romney’s tax return, the one we were allowed to see and its 349 pages of foreign investments, not 1 dollar to any American company. She forwarded the return to mr. dotster, in the same biz. He hasn’t had time to go over all of it, but he did mention to me that Marriott’s name is a big part of the return, with many $200,000 speaking fees paid to Romney and Romney in return donating huge sums to the Marriott foundation. And by the way, I’ve been using the 349 pages of foreign investments on some of my calls, and voters are incredulous about this info—–think it needs more attention, solidifies support for Obama.

    Hello everyone just wanted to share with you a conversation I just had with my cousin. He called me pretty upset, stating he was in church today when his minister (pastor Phillip Goudeaux in Sacramento, CA) started to preach issues related to the election. This is one of the largest churches in Sacramento, with a children’s nursery and Spanish ministryb (streaming their services online). My cousin said he was upset because he told them that he was voting with god, and that he had a daughter who was expecting a baby any day and if it was up to the left wing, they could abort that baby (“breaking its neck”). He went on to tell them that is why he was with the right wing. he didn’t use the work Democrat of Republican but made it clear he didnt think voting for the left wing party would be doing what was right in gods eyes. My cousin has just really began to get involved in the political process, so he didnt even know who the minister was talking about at first and called me, while out of town, to ask me who the right wing party was. this is so disturbing. I heard earlier in the week from our local television station and news paper (the Sacramento Bee) that this same minister was taking a lot of heat for stumping for Romney. My cousin said the congregation was clapping for this minister, and he said he had been receiving death threats to his staff. This is insane 😦

      Voting to support a liar, a minister voting to support a liar. A minister voting to support someone who think 47% of Americans are worthless. That makes lots of sense. His daughter will not have a abortion if she did not believe in abortion. So that minister is one I would not waste my time listening too. I don’t believe in abortion, but I believe in a woman’s right to make her own decision.

        So true, Anniebella – I don’t believe in abortion, but I also believe in the woman’s right to make her decision. And I also believe that it makes sense to do everything possible to help those who choose to bring a life into this world and need help when they do so, with good public schools, after school programs, accessible medical services and affordable insurance, safe communities, affordable housing, good foster care and adoption services, etc.

Their mission is to defy the 1954 law that stated that Charities, Churches and Non-profit entities were not suppose to be political or their tax exemption would be reversed. The Huckabee crowd have been promoting this. They want a fight that they are hoping that the Robert Courts can rule in their favor.

      I got the information for her and later she spoke with her R friend and gave her my FR page information, and guess what, the friend of my friend donated to my grassroots FR page. Hello!!. Great.

      So here is where you can find me. I am almost there. I owe it all to the encouragement of some very special people here at TOD giving me that nudge to step out. I am so joyful for each one of my family members here. Thank you for all that you have done.

      Thanks for posting this a4a. I was thinking about this video today. I have watched the original full speech that President Obama gave to the Associated Press and it should be required viewing for all Americans. As I listened it seemed that the speech could easily be President Obama’s closing argument for re-election. This is a brilliant speech with scathing critiques of the Republican Party. I sent this to family and friends and asked them to share far and wide.

    Totally off topic but for your arsenal against those that insist all our energy woes will be solved by the dreaded tar sand pipeline, I give you this from the Natural Resource Defense Council staff blog : http://bit.ly/UMkYgq

    Federal officials at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have pulled the curtain behind Enbridge’s effort to greenwash its tar sands pipeline spill into Michigan’s Kalamazoo River. On the same day that Enbridge told its investors that its tar sands spill and cleanup had made the Kalamazoo River cleaner, EPA ordered the Canadian tar sands pipeline company to resume its cleanup of the Kalamazoo River after finding that submerged oil “exists throughout approximately 38 miles of the Kalamazoo.”

    EPA’s findings, based on technical analysis from prominent scientists from the international oil spill response and recovery community, stand in stark contrast with the alternate reality that Enbridge is selling to investors and the public

    Enbridge’s legacy in Kalamazoo was outlined by federal investigators as a company whose poor safety practices and failures to learn from past mistakes which resulted in the most expensive onshore pipeline disaster in U.S. history.

    During the Kalamazoo River tar sands spill, Enbridge initially denied that tar sands was spilled. As Congressional and federal investigations began to uncover additional details on the spill, Enbridge CEO Patrick Daniel backtracked, saying:

    “No, I haven’t said it’s not tar sand oil. What I indicated is that it was not what we have traditionally referred to as tar sands oil. … If it is part of the same geological formation, then I bow to that expert opinion. I’m not saying, ‘No, it’s not oil sands crude.’ It’s just not traditionally defined as that and viewed as that.” -Patrick Daniels, August 12, 2010

    It was tar sands diluted with volatile natural gas liquid condensate, technically referred to as diluted bitumen.

    /They lie with reckless abandon and blame regulation for everything under the sun. Crickets from a media that will be quick to blame PBO if people found out about it. Read the rest here http://bit.ly/UMkYgq

    Media Cite True Obama Statements To Claim “Both Candidates” Lied During Debate


    Media figures are creating false balance in their coverage of the presidential debate by claiming both candidates lied. But the statements from President Obama they are pointing to are true.

    John Fund of National Review and Jonathan Karl of ABC News both used factual statements made by President Obama as examples to claim that he “stretched the truth” during the October 3 presidential debate. Fund cited Obama’s comments about the power of an advisory board created by the health care reform law, while Karl pointed to Obama’s statement that he has proposed a $4 trillion deficit reduction plan. In fact, both statements by President Obama during the debate were true, and have been supported by independent fact-checkers.

    Another interesting story about debate reaction: my husband is visiting a friend in New England. The friend is a very prominent Republican business man in his state. Not at all right wing crazy, just one of the old fashioned, America’s business is business types. Hubby is very liberal, so they’re an interesting pair. They watched the debate together, and my mate, who tends toward drama, joined the crowd at the wailing wall. I, who didn’t even watch the debate, wasn’t the least bit interested in the drama, but I was very interested in the fact that his friend, who thinks another Obama administration would ruin the country, thinks PBO did a better job in the debate.

    Hello everyone, I’ve been struggling tonight with a virus. I visted something I should not have and got something. It was able to post a page wanting to hold my computer hostage. I’ve run microsoft defender, and mcafree. I’m mad since I have McAfree, but it did not protect me Any advice from anyone out there? I have 2 sign ons, and one still comes up with the bad message.

      so sorry you’re having this problem, wish I could help. I have McAfee and it blocks me from just about every site I visit, including this one at times. It can get pretty aggravating, but I guess I’d rather be blocked and undo it, than to have a virus. Do they have a tech support you can call or chat with?

      esat is the best. It has a small footprint, 100% in the wild detection/ no false positives. The best hands down. And small footprint = not resource hog on your comp.

      Started using it after kids would pick up things like germs. Been free for years now. check how they compare to norton, mcaffee and other more pop brands by that computer security board that test and compares http://www.eset.com/us/home/whyeset/compare/ Follow their links to independent tests

      use spybot/search and destroy. That was the only thing that worked for me when I had a virus that insisted on reinventing itself.

      i love these photos..that show the spiritual connection the President and the people…i can only imagine what kind of experiences this el derly woman must have had/and the meaning that touching PBO has for her….

      that is why i got so disgusted with Dionne latest piece saying that there is a moral hole in PBOs campaign….

      they know not what they speak….they know not of what they speak!

    The election was waaaaay to boring for all these professional media hacks, who believe that they are performing a civic duty, but are actually manipulating, fabricating, and distorting facts and truths (sort of like our least favorite presidential candidate). Joseph Goebbels and George Orwell would have been so proud of our current 4th Estate! However, I have no doubt that this election will result in an incumbent’s reaffirmation by the nation.

    Most of you I am sure believed that this was bound to happen. I think everyone here has a tremendous responsibility to fight the lies with passion and conviction. Last Wednesday was NOT the brightest moment for this blog and others “liberal” media outlets. I respect everyone’s opinion, and there will always be room for differences. And I am forever grateful to Chipsticks for creating such a powerful forum. But Wednesday was really an embarrassment, not for our President, but for many in our progressive ranks.

    I hope that we all reflect on our purpose and understand the delicate nature of this election. Never has a candidate been up against tremendous forces – whether because of the President’s ethnicity or politics does not matter at this point. All positive energies must work collectively together towards one common goal – to defeat the shape-shifters, their media, and their financers.

    I look forward to the next four weeks with great confidence, focus, and determination to re-elect our President. Thanks to all!

    The national conversation – and what we need to push – is about LOWER UNEMPLOYMENT, LIES, AND BIG BIRD. Don’t underestimate the power of Sesame Street!

    Okay, here’s my very mini rant. Just listening to news radio and the reporter says, “The Obama campaign already feels it has Cali all sown up, so why is he there? Well, to collect another mil from a fundraiser with…..’.”. He’s there to get funds and maybe some debate tips” . I paraphrased this reporter but my point is- PBO’s supposed debate flop has become the laughing stock all over punditry, and aided by many here who saw him as “weak”. I’d just like to say, if he looks weak to you (and you have your right to your opinion), and you must “advise” on what he needs to do next, why not register yourself as a candidate and run for office ? With friends like some here, who the hell needs enemies? Best of all, take what Tally said in her post and look at the big picture. There is just absolutely no time left for critique. What good will that do when PBO is busy campaigning, and who does it serve to view it anyway? It just lends to lengthy discussion of no effect on this election. Again, my rant, my offering.

    I hope I don’t offend anyone but I, personally, feel that it may be helpful not to mention more uplifting if we all just STOP talking about the debate. It doesn’t help if we regurgitate negative comments/analysis either by news media or numbers analysts like Nate Silver. There is one month to go – everything is on the line NOW. Let’s try and change the narrative by focusing on other, more productive things. And my advice is not to obsess about the coming debates – what will be will be. I hope and pray that VP Biden and Pres do well – noting is guaranteed and we should all just calm down particularly if live blogging/tweeting during the upcoming events. Our focus should be on CALMLY pointing out Romney BS and applauding/supporting the most effective points made by VPB and PBO. Don’t retweet/draw attention to dumb comments made by Maher and Ice T about weed. It just keeps the debate ‘flop’ narrative going. The New Yorker has a brutal cover coming up so please be aware and try to ignore it. We are not 6 months out – it’s a month and time to fight like mad, organise and get out th evote – anything else is a waste of time. Sorry if this comes across as a rant – just eager for the subject to change.
