"If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace." Thomas Paine
This Convention needs to start remembering the Hardworking Hurting People of this Country are counting on them to Get this Right....There are alot of REAL People Issues I have barely heard Whispered, from 47 Million without Healthcare or Underinsured, to the Damn Illegal War, to the Broken Busted Economy , to Our Failed Schools to Crimes Committed in Our Name ( yes, GITMO and Torture)....and the Care of Our Elderly and Our Vets that is beyond Shame......AND Our Children's Futures Hang in the Balance....There are NO 2nd Chances....The Whole World is Watching.....
Okay ,so while the CottonCandied Brained Punditheads, handwring over the Clintons Dynasty and wax poetic clinging to a nostalgia in that delusional Get Granpa His slippers kind of way...we need to really Talk. ( And People ask WHY I watch so MUCH CSpan, I think this week proves WHY, if it was not for Keith and Rachel and the Daily Show I would have Elvised my TV by now ). I have spent the past two days watching this Convention, I watch it because We Got Trouble Folks BIG TROUBLE.....I don't watch because this is a DEM LoveFest or because we have a Damn Thing to Be Proud of Right Here Right Now...Sending anyone out in a $3000 Prada Suit is not going to Sooth my troubled Soul, I have watched a good bit of Bad Dancing to Bad Music from the Disco Era, and it occurs to me that maybe these Folks have Forgotten WHY they are there ? Have they actually forgotten about this Criminal Titannical Administration and the Hell they have Inflicted on Everyone in this Country and OTHER Countries ? Are they Dancing With Delusions Too ?
Have they Forgotten WHY we NEED Change ? Well, Here let me Tell You WHY we NEED Change...See the Punditheads keep saying well, "The Dems better define WHY we need Change and HOW they are going to Bring it about". That WHOLE Argument is Wrong.....ALL they have to do instead of Listening to Crappy 80's Music is Watch Videos ABOUT the 8 years of BUSH HELL....And then there would be NO Questions About WHY we need Obama. It ain't Rocket Science or any kind of PR Konodrum, unless you have Severe Memory Damage.....We don't Need any more Poetic Patriotic KumbaYa Pandering we NEED Reality- WE THE PEOPLE are running out of Time......
Okay....so that being said. I have some Important Videos below to Watch and review WHY we need CHANGE, do watch the Kucinich that the MSM did Not Show and also Cecile Richards....and then in the Posts below I have posted the MAIN Important Speeches from this Convention So Far (even Kucinich and Richards)..But here on this post I have posted Some Other Educational Videos that they should run at the Convention.....And it would not cost them a Cent...But it would Wake them up and give them a Reality Check....We need Change, because We Got Trouble...BIG TROUBLE and will only get worse under More McBush . Kucinich Got it Right WAKE UP AMERICA !!!
