I got this video from a link on one of my news feeds (not where I originally posted)

It took me a few minutes to find it on YouTube. Then about 30-45 to caption it for people.

A shot of impressive Nostalgia. And an admission by the Fonz that he was Wr – r – r

Realllly busy at work today…

But wanted to THANK EVERYONE who contributed.

This morning we broke the goal of raising over $1,000 to help the Obama Campaign.

There may be another push next week as we get down to the wire. But I wanted to take a moment to tell everyone who is supporting this, how important it is to me.

The answer to that is, “Very”

Putting positive energy into the next 2 wks here.


(Paraphrased from Avenue Q’s Money Song)

So.. this morning I’d raised $440 in my efforts to raise money for Obama’s presidential race.

Surprisingly, within about an hour I was up to $915.

This is including the amount I’ve offered to fulfil. This means if I can get just 4 people to put forth $25 then we blast through the goal I set several months ago.

Thank you so much to all who’ve donated. Thank you to anyone who has thought about it…

Friday morning will be the day that the Obama Campaign looks at it’s current finances and figures out how to deploy in battleground states. So donations today and tomorrow will help guide that decision.

As always.. any support, even if it’s just getting out the word or talking to friends and families helps …


We’re into the final two weeks of the Presidential race.

This is where the message needs to get out to the swing states.

Every dollar helps bring this message to people in states that can swing from McCain to Obama.

Any amount can help. Repeat donations are especially welcomed.

Thank you.

I’ve been sitting at $440 for a while.

Believe it or not, I’m really not for a bipartisan system. Everytime I hear the phrase, “I reach across the aisle” it really makes me sick. The truth is, the reasons behind saying the system is broken aren’t the real reasons.

Wouldn’t it be nice if there was someone who put the legislation in an easy to find place with translations out of the arcane language of ‘legal’ into hard facts of what the implications were?

Wouldn’t you love to see who specifically tacked on the amendment to the bailout bill that said, “And by the way; all the taxes we used to collect from Puerto Rico for importing rum; lets give it back to their government for the next 2 years.”

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the only topic the two parties agreed on wasn’t “How can we make more laws to prevent a tertiary party from gaining a foothold to keep us in check?”

Will Barack Obama help fix these things? Probably not.

Does the party have a plan that might at least start reversing some of the problems that we’ve fallen into in the past 8 years? Oh yes.

I often hear that a president can’t claim the economic rise and success that occurs during their term. That Clinton didn’t help the economy; he inherited the work of Regan and Bush the first. Well, we see what the next president is about to inherit. And let me tell you. I don’t see the budget snapping back in the next 4 years. I see it beginning to turn.

I don’t like the idea of privatising Social Security and Health after what privatising and deregulation has done to the banking system. I don’t like the idea of health being reduced to ‘which state can offer the least for the least?’

I’m raising money in the hopes that my small contribution will join other’s small contributions to help put into the White House the first candidate in pretty much my entire life that I can believe in.

I’ve set a goal for $1000 that I’ve helped raise. And truthfully, I’m really only hoping to get $750. Because if I can raise that much for Obama, I’ll happily put in the other quarter.

I’m doing okay so far. But I am going to be on this for the next month. Because frankly… I don’t like the outlook of a McCain administration.

Please consider supporting Obama’s campaign with funds as well as your philosophical support. And most assuredly above all else. Vote. Even if your state seems like a done deal… Vote.

Thank you.
