Although I didn't write this poem, I wish I had -- but I have said these things. Several of us have said these things and thought these things. Nevertheless, this is a great poem by Terry Ehret, a national award winning poet, and should be read in public places at least twice a day, every day until everyone has heard it and understood what it is saying. I say, with thousands of friends, in the words of The White Rose, "We will Not Be Silent." We must not be silent. love, Eliz
Do you feel once Obama's government run health plan comes fully operational do you think our governmental officials such as our President and members of the House and Senate will be on the same plan as us or a private plan only they are allowed to have?

Two men went to same school (Harvard), One learned how to create and enable a better society by creating new jobs while the other learned how to destroy a society by eliminating the jobs of the people who make the society to enrich himself and his high flotutent friends.

It is a curious thing. Lies don't seem to anger people very much. I suppose it's because lies can be easily twisted, changed to fit circumstance and audience.

I'm wondering why the media refuses to challenge the lies coming out of these republicons, especially Romney? And the other candidates were just as bad. However, Romney is the worst! Has no one got the guts to do this? (Except for Thom, of course) Healthcare, for example, they are advocating the same system we currently have, are they not? Under the guise of "freedom" personal or religious, or whatever.
What is this garbage?!?
