Operation General Election
Author: Raine    Date: 05/08/2008 12:24:42

It is time to change how we are seeing things. We need to start acting like the primary is over. We have a presumptive nominee and it is time we as a party start operating as tho we are in General Election mode. We do want to win in November, right? Of course we do!

I know that we still have 2 candidates that are actively seeking the Democratic party nomination. As the grassroots of this party, the donators, the true constituency, it is now our job to start -- REALLY START -- working to defeat John McCain. Until the superdelegates get off their asses and commit, someone has to carry the water for this party.

It's about a lot more than who wins the POTUS. A lot of seats in the House and the Senate are up for grabs that we must win to have a fillibuster proof majority. As long as this race is dragged out the way certain people seem to want it to, precious money is being spent - and precious attention is not being paid to things going on in your states and districts. No attention means those candidates probably need support and money. In the coming weeks, we will probably be adding capabilities for people who are members here to link to their candidates in local races. Operation GE is open to suggestions!

It is time to move into general Election mode along with all the others who know what we need to to defeat John McCain and the Republican party this fall. Call your local Democratic party office and voluteer. Find out who is running to represent your area. Put a sign in your yard saying that you will vote Dem.

I know people are tired. I know some will need more time than others to join OGE, but for those of us that can lead the charge it is time. I think the First job will be to come up with a better acronym than OGE!

We have given the talking points here abut McCain. Every day this goes on, John is out campaigning quietly and going VERY under the radar. In the coming months we will post about him -- again and again I am sure.

But for today, I say we begin Operation General Election.
We get to decide. WE make the Choice. We have to power to get the real message out -- door to door, hand to hand, call to call, volunteering, shouting, talking, communicating...

WE can and must get a working majority back in the ALL the branches of Government.

... And three outta three, ain't bad.

:peace: and
Raine

Back to the Facebook crack

Mornin' Mondo!



I recently started a Facebook account and filled in a few things there, but I just don't get the appeal of it. I guess I'm just more in tune with message boards & diary-style blogging & MMO gaming.

Wasn't it Coltrane or PArker or DAvis that you say you cannot listen to and still be in a bad mood?



Maybe it is time to fire up some Jazz my friend!

I've got a dildo named Leo - he's chocolate brown and he's loads of fun.

I'd call in but I don't know if you can say "dildo" on the air???

Sorry, is this too much information? Seems to go along with the on air conversation...:D

No... I refuse to give meat to trolls.





I am more than willing to share things like this here. There... no.



I just refuse to engage in those discussions. period. The reason Why I go there at all is so the few nice people know that we have this place here.



Comment by m-hadley on 05/08/2008 13:50:53
A co-worker just walked into my office and asked me if I was listening to Ann Coulter - I threw up in my mouth, before I could even scream: “Nooooooo!” I’ll listen to Ann Coulter when hell freezes over or when Rush Limbaugh becomes an honest man. Aaaarrrgh!!!

Cheers,

mfaye :D
