Saturday Morning.....72 Days to Go...


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Have to go to work...be back later this eve...Have a good day..there is plenty down below, Music, Videos and Highlights from the week....What an Astounding Week....Anyone Else Feeling proud again ?? Like we helped do Something Really Amazing ?

( I don't know about you- but I am ready to pull a U Haul up to the White House and help Bush move out today !!!)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Some Morning Wisdom...President Abraham Lincoln::::

"Allow the president to invade a neighboring nation, whenever he shall deem it necessary to repel an invasion, and you allow him to do so whenever he may choose to say he deems it necessary for such a purpose - and you allow him to make war at pleasure." {{{ Sadly we as a Nation had to learn this one the hard way....}}}

"Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any one thing."

"America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves."

"Any people anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up, and shake off the existing government, and form a new one that suits them better. This is a most valuable - a most sacred right - a right, which we hope and believe, is to liberate the world."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
( When I lived in Downtown Cleveland...down by the Malls, I used to walk down there, for Think Time...I would go visit the Lincoln Statue down on the mall, touch my hand to the cool marble, feel grounded and think about this man full of Wisdom and Common Sense, and a soul so deep....I left downtown January 2007, because my landlord got foreclosed....but last Sunday I went back downtown visited Lincoln's Statue again....and my Touchstone...and then I listened to Bruce Springsteen sing "The Rising"....and Listened to Obama speak about Our Country...and 80,000 of us were there in the rain ....for Change...)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Have a good day....Change has Come...and YOU are a part of it....we ALL are...

For us it is sweet and sour. We wonder now which of our neighbors and community would vote for Pros. 2 or 8 and deny us not only civil rights but humanity itself: an American Apartheid.

Great quotes from Lincoln.

Lovely photo of the fall foliage too.

I think we all share the feeling of "Get Bush out of the White House NOW - let's not wait till January!"

Sadly, Mandt is right - in the midst of our pride is sorrow that we couldn't go all the way to true equality and vote down these terrible propositions against yet another marginalized community in our country. Why can't anything ever happen all at once? We need to work hard toward reversing this bigotry.

I laughed when I read that. I will never understand how that man got to live in the White House in the first place - neither in 2000 nor 2004.

Good luck with your new President. I hope things will be better for all of you folks. :-)

I love fall leaves, so thank you for the photo. I don't get to see any down here in south TX. Abraham Lincoln was my hero all through elementary school, and I so appreciate reading his quotes.

I'm proud, except for the part where the Mormon and Catholic churches imposed their beliefs on Californians and took away civil liberties from my state's LGBT residents.

I'm doing more than get mad. Check out my latest post.

Amen to the U Haul truck arriving early!

D.K. Raed said...

U-Hauls, yup, hell at this point, I'm willing to pack up his boxes myself. Afterall, how long could it take to pack up a buncha lariats & silver star belt buckles, Laura's few books & ciggies, Saddam's mememto ears (yikes), Bush's legacy book draft (reduced to a 1-page PDB about OBL determined to attack INSIDE), a pair of Condi's nazi boots showing much evidence of molestation even though they are carefully preserved in formeldahyde ...

I'm trying to find a way to go to the inauguration but there's just no way.

MLK Day the day before Obama gets sworn in. Can you imagine what that's going to be like?

just me said...

I am just so proud to have lived to see this day. Yes, change is in the air.
