My son and I loved her that year, we were living on one room of a dilapidated rooming house on the California Coast, every week we would put extra money on our Phone card to Vote for her. She had depth, soul and such courage, this single mom from the South....This song really moved us, inspired us, and gave us hope that year.....The Video is the night she won...and it is beautiful....I don't know about you, BUT I DO BELIEVE....

HAPPY HALLOWEEN....


Don't you love Halloween ?.... The smell of the pumkins with candles burning, and the crackling leaves, and burnt Smores....and the little ones in their costumes wandering around the neighborhood with their pillowcases full of candy...

I love decorating my porch- making Pumpkin People, with straw bodies ( like scarecrows)...When my son was 5, I decorated the porch to look like a Pirate Ship...complete with Pirates ( Pumpkin headed), they had Hooks, and patches, and were sprawled in drunken splendor across the porch ( and I dressed as a pirate, and embarrassed my son)....Other years I dressed as a gypsy and read palms when I handed out cookies and candy ( the readings were so funny , kids love to be told they will be famous ..or rich..)

I used to take my son to parties, we would take hospital glove and freeze water in them- makes wonderful Frozen Hand Ice Cubes to put in the punch, and then there were bowls of eyeballs ( peeled grapes), brains ( cold spaghetti), bowls of snot ( yellow jello), One year he wanted to be a car..so I made him a car....another year, it was a robot ( he won his first Contest in that one- he was wonderful , complete with lights and bells and buttons, it was a wonderful constume).....and of course Batman...( that was the same year his friend Mack dressed as Casper, sadly her mom made the Head Part TOO pointed, so people thought she was a Klan Child....the shocked faces were priceless....sorry , but they were...)

As a child I was really good at making my own costumes...A Basket of Laundry ( from an old laundry basket with holes for legs and arms), A Dollar Bill -I was dressed in George in the Center, and when I was in Nursing school I was a "Table For two", that one also won some awards....I miss those days....and all of that Creativity... So Get out there be Creative..and have fun....If you want to try some wonderful treats click the TITLE....

Huffpost report:::Students were Bussed in ???( so of the 6000 at the event- more than 4000 were students...that are not voting for McCain....5 days before the Election- shouldn't he be drawing more ?
""A local school district official confirmed after the event that of the 6,000 people estimated by the fire marshal to be in attendance this morning, more than 4,000 were bused in from schools in the area. The entire 2,500-student Defiance School District was in attendance, the official said, in addition to at least three other schools from neighboring districts, one of which sent 14 buses.This happened -- as if a reminder were needed -- less than a week out from the election, when the heat of the campaign should be drawing record crowds.""

American Stories, American Solutions.....(29 minutes 10.29.08)

• Rasmussen: Obama 51%, McCain 46%, with a ±2% margin of error, unchanged from yesterday.
• ABC/Washington Post: Obama 52%, McCain 45%, with a ±3% margin of error, unchanged from yesterday.
• Hotline/Diageo: Obama 50%, McCain 42%, with a ±3.3% margin of error, unchanged from yesterday.

Voting Lessons for Our Children...Enigma's Voting Story Continued...


There are lessons for all of us this Election.There has been alot that has happened in the past 8 years, much has changed within us and around us. This Election is more important than ever for so many people.There are no Second Chances,this is no time for the comfort and solace of apathy, because there is too much at stake and too much damage. This is our last chance to repair what has happened and mediate any of the Damage. There can be no Healing until this Election is resolved with Honesty, and Justly.

Much has changed in the 8 years since the First Bush Election. I was overwhelmed with the damage at an odd moment last week, as I cleaned a closet and stumbled across a dusty old London Fog Rain Coat. It was an odd moment filled with chilling memories and deep thought. I was filled with the memories of my son, a Sick Chicken, my Bassatt, and Voting. Eight years ago it was the coat I wore to vote for Gore, in the pocket there was still a crumpled "I Voted Sticker". I stood in the rain for hours with my friends and neighbors from little Northwest Neighborhood and waited to Vote, with my son by my side. My Husband stood ahead of me in the line about 100 people between us. Another neighbor ordered Pizza for the line after we had been there for about an hour. We all laughed at our creativity to have pizza delivered.

It was a wonderful Northwest Neighborhood full of college students and working people, teachers and nurses, and young lawyers, and community organizers. Thinkers and Dreamers and wonderful neighbors. In the years to come I would learn that only one of their Votes was counted that fateful night......Only One. ( and it was not mine). Yes, I would learn about Caging.

That night I walked home with my son, and he sat out on the porch with our Bassatt Hound Abby and sat by the cage of our Wounded Chicken we were nursing. He sat and told Henrietta all about Voting and how he had voted with me in Every Election. He was 9 years old, to this day he claims he "remembers" Voting for Clinton. She sat with her bandaged head and looked at him with her bright beady eyes full of trust and love. I sat on the front porch bench and listened to him explain about Voting and the Constitution. I realized that he understood and appreciated the process. That Damp Rainy Night as it started to rain, I was filled with pride as my son taught a Chicken about The Value of Voting. As we went inside he covered her cage with the raincoat, and Abby licked her injured head in a Good Night Gesture. And we all went inside to drink Hot Coco To celebrate The Vote. And by Morning ......all those "Lessons" would be thrown to the Wind.

By 2004 my son and I would living many miles away, and the night of the Vote would be long past. But we would learn about Caged Voting. In California I had trouble registering as my previous Vote of 2004 could not be located, so I was forwarded to an Investigation by the Justice Department Rep in a Senator's Office, and ACLU and Human Rights Organization. I learned in June 2004, that my Vote like most of my nieghborhood had vanished, the Only Vote found from that fateful night of 2000, was that of Mr.Enigma. The Investigator asked me if I knew the other Voter of my street, and I said yes, but that was the only Vote she could find that was registered or counted. I have written before about how disgusted and stunned I was. My son said, "well, atleast we know now that they are problems, and you reported it, so it can't happen again."

So I voted again in a new place and my son went with me. And I have written before, that I again have not been able to verify That Vote either. Something so simple has now become Something that haunts me, worries me. Yet now I am no longer alone with this fear. We now know that in both Elections Thousands of People were Discounted and rendered Invisible.There are books and studies about people being disenfranchised, it is no longer a silent hidden problem.

This year there is a difference. Senator Obama's Campaign has worked hard to improve Voter Rights and address problems for Voters. I had read this on his site and even heard him speak about it. And I was impressed, and my son was moved by it. Said "See , this is someone that takes this seriously." I nodded and agreed, and offered my own reassurance. But I still was only half hearted. Well, low and behold My Registration ran into Problems again. The First week in October, I learned that the State site had me registered and the County site did not. I assumed that my Divorce and Name Changes and 2 Moves had caused problems ( as it had taken the Social Security Administration under Homeland Security over 20 Monthes to "correct" my records.)

I emailed the Obama Campaign and while driving to the Election Center, A rep from the Campaign called me back and asked for details of my situation and said that they knew there were problems in Ohio and if I had any problems to call them back and they would send a Lawyer to the Election Center. This was the first time in 8 years ANYONE had offered Help or acknowledges that this Problem Needs Fixing, that it Matters. I thanked him, and told him I felt Invisible Again. He reassured me that Obama has lawyers and Voting Advocates ready , that No One should experience that Again. No One. No One should feel Alone and Invisible.

I drove to the Election Center and fixed the problems with my registration, after parking a mile away and walking to the Center. I watched ACORN helping people register outside at a table, helping people fill out the Form and explaining What they needed to bring with them to Vote. ( and now weeks later the GOP has targeted this Advocacy Group as something Evil and Illegal, yet that is far from the Truth).

As I stood and stroked the battered old raincoat in the Closet I realized how naive I was, and that in the years to come I would learn so much, about Caged Voting and people being disenfranchised, and how such a Moment could alter the History and Lives of Millions...I remembered watching my 9 year old son and how he sat on the Porch that Damp Night in November 2000 explaining to a Chicken about Voting. He told Henrietta that Voting Required people to be Brave, not a Chicken, and he laughed. He told her how Voting Brings Changes in Times of Trouble, but that it is a Chance for Each and Every Citizen to have a Voice. But he also told her how through the ages people had Fought for this Right, and that it is a Right worth Fighting for. That Night he asked " Is it a Right Worth Fighting For. " I had said Yes at the time. But now as he is almost a man, I know now more than ever, that Right is Worth Protecting and Fighting for, and never taking for granted.Lives depend on Our Votes.

A Snippet of Good News for Ohio Voters { TPM Central) :
"Poll: Obama Ahead in Ohio, Way Up On Early Votes
A new SurveyUSA poll gives Barack Obama a 49%-45% lead in Ohio, with a ±3.9% margin of error. The key number from the internals is that 22% of the likely electorate has already voted, and they've gone for Obama by a 56%-39% margin, with the two candidates tied 47%-47% among the remaining 78%."

SENATOR TED STEVENS FOUND GUILTY ON ALL COUNTS.....


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Will post more links as the news comes in, Huffpost linked to title.
ABC News is reporting, Snippet:::
"A federal grand jury indicted Stevens, 84, in July on seven counts of making false statements, for allegedly lying on U.S. Senate financial disclosure forms for the years 1999 to 2006.

The jury of eight women and four men deliberated for five hours Monday before returning guilty verdicts on all seven counts.

Prosecutors claimed that Stevens accepted $250,000 worth of gifts, primarily from now-defunct oil services company Veco Corp. and its former CEO, Bill Allen. Among the alleged gifts was the value of a home renovation project that transformed the senator's Girdwood, Alaska, home from a quaint cabin to a sizeable house, a $2,600 massage chair and a Viking gas grill.Each charge carries a maximum five years in prison and $250,000 fine. U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan will sentence Stevens in January."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
So here is my Question does he Drop Out or Keep Running as a Convicted Felon ??? Here is some information about other Felonious Politicians....
Snippet:::
"Ted Stevens is the first sitting United States Senator to be convicted on corruption charges since New Jersey's Harrison Williams on May 1, 1981. Stevens, who has represented Alaska in the Senate since 1968, was found guilty on seven counts of making false statements on his Senate financial disclosure. Williams, who was completing his fourth term, was convicted on nine counts of bribery and extortion charges connected to the ABSCAM scandal. Five U.S. Senators have been found guilty of felony charges; Williams is one of two Senators in U.S. history to serve in prison following a conviction.

If Stevens is defeated for re-election next week, he will become the longest-serving U.S. Senator in history to lose his seat. He'll break the record set by Warren Magnuson, who lost his seat in 1980 after 36 years in office. And if Stevens wins, and then leaves office (either through resignation or expulsion), Alaska Governor Sarah Palin would pick his replacement. Palin could pick herself."
{{{ I hope this is Wrong????Sarah Palin could Pick HERSELF !!!? oye...}}}

(( Gee will Anyone ask Palin about that 520 that she ran for Teddy ? and hey, let's hope that Teddy does not get sentenced until AFTER 1.20.08...we would not want Bush to pardon Teddy.... let's hope that he can bunk with Duke Cunningham...that would be nice ))
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
So the Question is Does Sarah Still have "Respect" for Teddy still ??

Obama's Speech in Canton,Ohio Today "Closing Arguments"

Obama never went to Court when he worked as a Lawyer...but WOW....he can really "Close"....Final 6 minutes of his speech today...( the stock market went up 209 as he spoke...then McCain spoke...and it dived.....Again.)...Watch..

( Nice that today the cable stations showed the speech- funny they can not show the HUGE weekend rallies for 100,000 but they can show the smaller venues..what is THAT about ??? Today McCain gave another small event in Dayton- over the weekend he gave events at small school gyms- for 500 people....today's event again was about 500 squished in on one side of the gym....he kept stumbling and trying to say something about "re-distributing wealth" but he was having a difficult senior moment).
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
AND look....Ohio is still looking BLUE...

Then it was Monday...8 Days to Go...


This Election is alot about What do YOU Believe in ...What do you hold onto ? What keeps you going every day ? What makes you think about Our Future ? If "Hope" was just a "word" we would not have a Man on the Moon, or airplanes or even a car to drive...or electric power or running water.....Hope has Fueled Many Dreams and many Futures...Many Immigrants when they got off at Ellis Island all they had in their tattered pocket....was Hope.

Christopher Hitchens on Hardball today, questioning McCain's Stability, is he Senile ? Stable? Watch....

I have been saying this for monthes, as a nurse I am worried about his Stability, and whether he has Something effecting his Brain, either Senility or METS, of some sort of brain dysfunction....scary to watch, his moods shifts, his facial expressions, his cognition, and his irritable misperceptions and responses....Hitchens describes it as "Weird"....I can not believe I am agreeing with Hitchens...Maybe he has changed since he was water-boarded ? or is he looking at things with a new perspective....

PNC buys National City ( but 6500 jobs could fall from Ohio)

The Bogus Story....That the McCain Campaign Staff pushed on the MSM....


( researched all eve 10.23.08 and factually corrected on 10.24.08 by MSM )
Many of us had Major Concerns about this story....Partly because of THIS photo, but partly because of the actual story.
And we met on Blogs last night and did research and asked questions..because we were disgusted and worried that this was some kind of story being pushed for Benifit for McCain....the girl clearly needs help...but we were worried that McCain's people Pushed a Horrific False Story....
(1) Her story does not hold up- and she refused medical care at the "scene", and did go the next day to get care. Very strange that a young girl, even out of vanity or trauma would refuse medical care for a facial injury.
(2) She was in PA for the Campaign, she said, yet the PA campaign people did not ever verify that or make a statement.
(3) She is traveling from Texas, and yet checking her campaign Blog, she has not blog posts on PA.
(4) Her Twitter account, shows a 3 hour Gap, 8-11PM, and she was supposedly looking for a Bank of America- yet there are NONE for 100 MILES.
(5) She said it was a Male with a Black Tshirt, yet it was 43 degrees, NO Coat ?
(6) The Photo raised many questions, the eye injury looks more like a shiner or actually inky makeup? the eye itself has no injury or swelling ? and she fell on her face she said? her whole face should have had swelling, and the tissue and the eye should have had broken vessels. The "B" looks like it was done in a mirror? It is Backwards and not sharply carved, it looks like it could have been scratched, or abraded with a fingernail. It is very hard to carve a "B" with a knife ( try it on chicken - we did), and WHY a "B" ? ( an "O" would have been easier).
(7) The area it occurred there are no Cameras ? or other witnesses? Suspposedly it is a busy part of town, with a Cop Bar right across the street....there should have been witnesses.

By 4PM 10.24.08 The story fell apart....here is more that Huffpost and TPM Central are reporting as of 10.24.08, a McCain staffer PUSHED the story to the Media- before properly vetting the story or checking the authenticity with Police and Hospital Officials, but were eager to tell the Press HOW to tell the girl's story with Racial undertones and the Obama slurring. But last night the Repug site were casting the story as " Obama Supporter attacks McCain Campaign Worker". But here is the Truth about "the story", now Known to be fabricated.

"McCain Communications Director Gave Reporters Incendiary Version Of "Carved B" Story Before Facts Were Known
By Greg Sargent - October 24, 2008, 5:12PM TPM Central
John McCain's Pennsylvania communications director told reporters in the state an incendiary version of the hoax story about the attack on a McCain volunteer well before the facts of the case were known or established -- and even told reporters outright that the "B" carved into the victim's cheek stood for "Barack," according to multiple sources familiar with the discussions.

John Verrilli, the news director for KDKA in Pittsburgh, told TPM Election Central that McCain's Pennsylvania campaign communications director gave one of his reporters a detailed version of the attack that included a claim that the alleged attacker said, "You're with the McCain campaign? I'm going to teach you a lesson."

Verrilli also told TPM that the McCain spokesperson had claimed that the "B" stood for Barack. According to Verrilli, the spokesperson also told KDKA that Sarah Palin had called the victim of the alleged attack, who has since admitted the story was a hoax.

The KDKA reporter had called McCain's campaign office for details after seeing the story -- sans details -- teased on Drudge.

The McCain spokesperson's claims -- which came in the midst of extraordinary and heated conversations late yesterday between the McCain campaign, local TV stations, and the Obama camp, as the early version of the story rocketed around the political world -- is significant because it reveals a McCain official pushing a version of the story that was far more explosive than the available or confirmed facts permitted at the time.

The claims to KDKA from the McCain campaign were included in an early story that ran late yesterday on KDKA's Web site. The paragraphs containing these assertions were quickly removed from the story after the Obama campaign privately complained that KDKA was letting the McCain campaign spin a racially-charged version of the story before the facts had been established, according to two sources familiar with the discussions.

The story with the removed grafs is still right here. We preserved the three missing grafs from yesterday:"

About Grandmothers....Sending Prayers to Obama and his grandmother...


{{ Originally posted 10.20.08}}
Obama is spending time with his grandmother in Hawaii today and tomorrow....

All of us have grandmothers in our lives...or had grandmothers in our lives. They hold a special place in our hearts and help us become better people. It is the little things...walks on the beach, fresh warm pie, prayers at bedtime, clean warm sheets that smell of sunshine,new shoes for school, and a shoulder to lean on when things don't go quite right. They are the difference between growing up confused and grounded. They help us to grow stronger and share their wisdom like lemonade on the patio....They are a gift.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Obama is rearranging his week to go see his grandmother in Hawaii. She helped raise him and care for him and his half sister.In his books he talks lovingly of how she nurtured him with her Kansas Ways. She was born and raised in Kansas, and later worked on a Boeing Line during WWII while her Stanley went and fought in the war.She went to University of Washington while she worked on the Bomber line. By 1960 they had moved to Hawaii, and his mother would go to school there and fall in love with the Student Barack from Kenya. Madelyn was a brave woman , for she started working in banking in Hawaii in those early years, at a time when not many women or white women went into Banking in the Islands. She later became one of the first Female Vice Presidents of a Bank on the Islands.She was admired as a businesswoman. Obama on the Stomp has talked fondly about how she went without so that she could help send him to school and college.He talks about how she helped raise him and his sister Maya.

Her Birthday is October 26th, she will be 86.As Obama suspends campaigning to go be by her side and be with her this last birthday may we send prayers, and light ..in the Spirit of Ma halo and Aloha.....to Obama, his sister Maya, and his beloved "Tutu".

Photos of Obama interchanged with photos of the challenges we face as a nation. Shows there is greatness in the man, not just in his words. Reveals compassion, intelligence, conviction, strength of character and devotion to family -- all qualities one would hope for in a president. Choreographed to Sam Cooke's "A Change Gonna Come" mixed with excerpts from Obama's June 3 speech. Photos from Associated Press and Detroit YES.

NOW McCain makes a statement regarding THE Clothes,snippet of Huffpost Article::
"The McCain campaign and RNC's pushback to revelations that they purchased $150,000 worth of clothing and accessories for Sarah Palin has been, primarily, that it was money well spent.After all, the Alaska Governor's image has graced countless newspaper covers and been featured prominently on television newscasts. Politics, the argument goes, is a superficial business. "She needed clothes," said McCain.

But what has some GOP operatives shaking their heads is the missed opportunities that that $150K represents. Had the RNC forgone the clothing purchases, they could have put more mail in mailboxes, more boots on the ground, and more advertisements on air."

SHE NEEDED CLOTHES.....quick Someone set up a Registry for her at the Wasilla Walmart !!!! She NEEDS Clothes...The Empress Has NO Clothes....

YES WE CARVE.....( You just knew that Someone would think of this- perfect thing to do this weekend)


This one may be my favorite....so far..but I think this weekend might have to get some carving tools out...and mutilate some poor pumpkin...I usually post Puking Pumpkins...( that is my favorite...BUT...this might be more fun this year..)...( thank you JB for sending this to me...perfect....and Ingrid..I think this shows I have some humor left...for today...)

POOR DUMB SARAH DOES NOT KNOW WHAT THE VP DOES, I WOULD SEND HER THE CONSTITUTION, BUT INSTEAD I AM SAYING SHE SHOULD WATCH SCHOOL HOUSE ROCK....

Thank heavens that Schoolhouse Rock was around when we all grew up....So the RNC spent ALL that MONEY Dressing her up...they didn't think to EDUCATE her WHAT THE VP DOES ???? ( I would send her a Copy of the Constitution...BUT I don't think she reads..) There is a whole series on the Constitution....WOW....that should help her out...

Powell Endorses Obama....

Colin Powell on Meet the Press

and meeting with the Press afterwords....

Click the title to read the Huffpost article..

In Powell's Endorsement he spoke of an American Muslim Soldier that Died...here is more on that soldier...


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What Colin Powell said about Muslims in his Endorsement on MEET THE PRESS....
Powell also spoke passionately against the insinuations by some Republicans that Obama is a Muslim.
"Well, the correct answer is, he is not a Muslim, he's a Christian. He's always been a Christian," he said. "But the really right answer is, what if he is? Is there something wrong with being a Muslim in this country? The answer's no, that's not America. Is there something wrong with some seven-year-old Muslim-American kid believing that he or she could be president? Yet, I have heard senior members of my own party drop the suggestion, 'He's a Muslim and he might be associated terrorists.' This is not the way we should be doing it in America."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Click the title to read about the Soldier he referenced.....very sad. The Article with the original photo was in the New Yorker.
This is the young man's Newark Obituary. I think Powell did was right to mention this Muslim Soldier, how many more that we don't know about.....
