Re-elect Barack Hussein Obama in 2012

He was born in Hawaii to a single mother.
He was raised in Kansas by his two loving grandparents.
He went to Harvard law School and become a community organizer in Chicago.

His story is one told a million times over in this country, from sea to shining sea.
It is a dream shared by all who come to this country seeking opportunity and prosperity.

He is not a RADICAL.
He is not a SOCIALIST.
He is not the ANTI-CHRIST.

He is Barack Hussein Obama and He is the American Dream.

Roe v. Wade: 39 Years Later-“Who Decides?”

WASHINGTON, DC - JANUARY 24:  Anti-abortion an...Image by Getty Images via @daylife

It’s amazing to think that 39 years after the Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade, my daughters face more obstacles in exercising their right to choose than I did a generation ago. When it comes to the question of “Who decided?” a terrifying number of politicians still think the answer is them-not women.

Every woman knows the deep and fundamental importance of freedom of choice and the right to privacy.  Personal and private childbearing decisions belong to a woman and whomever she chooses to consult-her family, her doctor, her faith.  No one else should interfere, especially not politicians.  It’s her body, her life, her choice. But a frightful number of those in power refuse to respect this right.

Republicans Wage War on the Postal Service

Republican leaders in Congress are talking about dismembering the US Postal Service by cutting the number of delivery days, shuttering processing centers so that it will take longer for letters to arrive, closing thousands of rural and inner-city post offices and taking additional steps that would dramatically downsize one of the few national programs ordained by the original draft of the US Constitution.

Most people believe, in error, that taxpayers support the postal service. The agency is self supporting. Most importantly, if you haven't heard it before, know this... the postal service is not broke.

The Nevada Caucus...Help me Understand

English: Governor Mitt Romney of MAImage via WikipediaFor the past week, Republicans have been in a flurry preparing for today's Nevada Caucus.  The Republican Presidential Candidates traveled the state spouting their message to those gathered to listen and today Republican voters came together to discuss and decide who would Nevada support for the party's nominee.

While the G.O.P. did its political thing. I caught up on the issues facing Nevada. The state of the economy takes on a particular importance in Nevada. The state has the highest unemployment rate in the country, 12.6 percent as of December. Nevada also has the highest foreclosure rate in the country. One in every 177 homes in Nevada received a foreclosure filing in December 2011, according to the foreclosure database RealtyTrac.
