True ~ but sad...
If you want to fight and die for my right to sit here and bitch, sleep with whomever you want.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Stop Driving Distracted!
Cellphone use, particularly texting, factors in an estimated 342,000 auto accident injuries and costs $43 billion each year in property damage, lost wages, medical bills and loss of life. Studies show texting is far more dangerous than talking on a phone while driving or driving while drunk. STOP IT NOW! source

I Have A Dream!
Standing on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on August 28, 1963, Martin Luther King, Jr. shared his vision for a new America before a crowd of hundreds of thousands:

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: We hold these truths to be self-evident -- that all men are created equal.

On Thursday, August 28, 2008, forty-five years after Dr. King gave his landmark address, Barack Obama accepted the Democratic Party's nomination for the President of the United States.

In America, dreams still can come true!

Focus on Your Credit/Debt
According to the Consumer Federation of America, Americans hold $850 billion in credit card debt and the average balance per card-holding household is $8,568.

You need to reduce your debt if you value "Freedom". Debt represents a form of slavery.

The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act, or FACT Act, enacted in 2003, allows you to get one free credit report per year from Equifax, Experian or TransUnion.

For a free copy of your credit report, visit
www.annualcreditreport.com
or call 877-322-8228.

The credit report won't include your credit score, which ranges from 300 to 850 (the higher the better). Scores cost extra and can run from $6 to $16; lenders pay less than a dollar, so it's a rip off. Your score is less important than your overall report.
Working Together for the American People
Sad ~ but true...
We are living in a society based too largely on a militaristic foundation. The peace-loving emotions of the people have not been cultivated. Wants are the drives of all human action. If we want peace we must educate people to want peace. We must replace attitudes favorable to war with attitudes opposed to war.

When someone talks back to a cop in his own house, thatís disorderly conduct ... When people make death threats and start fights in public, thatís exercising their First Amendment rights.

I'd love to one day find out what it's like to be a multimillionaire who pays higher taxes than most people. Just so I'd be able to empathize with the kind of anguish they go through day after day.

I do not take a single newspaper, nor read one a month, and I feel myself infinitely the happier for it. (NOTE: I apply Jefferson's comments to TV news as well)

Traditional American values: genocide, aggression, conformity, emotional repression, hypocrisy, and the worship of comfort and consumer goods.

Don't Question My Christianity!
First of all -- you fucking fake Christians -- donít fucking question my Christianity.

God wants us all to just get along. He doesnít give a shit about the profanity. The bitch fucking invented profanity. He thinks it is hilarious. He just wants you to talk to him, and he doesnít care what you have to say. He just wants to keep the conversation going. Like Jay-Z, he just wants to love you. He just wants you to be able to make your own decisions. God is all about you and what you need. God is happy that you are gay. God made you fucking gay cuz he thinks it is awesome. God understands if you need to have an abortion. That is why he created abortion, on the 8th day. God accepts. God forgives. God loves all of us, even though some of us might have a problem with each other.

Donít fucking question my Christianity you fucking idiot assholes. If you continue to have a problem, then talk to God about it, not me, you fucking racist homophobic misogynist fake Christian shitheads. God thinks it is funny that I swear so much. He said I could use his name in vain or whatever. He just wants me to use it. He loves me. So fuck you. And I guess he loves you too. Even though you are fake Christian assholes. If you were truly Christians, you would let gays get married, and send them fucking presents from Bed Bath and Beyond!

If you truly believed in Jesus, you would try to be like him and love us, fags and dykes and feminists all. God bless you, even you. You fucking fuckers.

Have The Courage To Keep Going
My mother was born before women could vote. But in this election my daughter got to vote for her mother for President.

This is the story of America. Of women and men who defy the odds and never give up. How do we give this country back to them?

By following the example of a brave New Yorker, a woman who risked her life to shepherd slaves along the Underground Railroad.

And on that path to freedom, Harriett Tubman had one piece of advice.

If you hear the dogs, keep going.

If you see the torches in the woods, keep going.

If they're shouting after you, keep going.

Don't ever stop. Keep going.

If you want a taste of freedom, keep going.
NY Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton
