Human Obama Logo in Anchorage – Video

29 10 2008

Here is the video from last Saturday’s event in downtown Anchorage! Hundreds of Obama supporters gathered in the freezing cold for over an hour to send this video postcard to their fellow Americans “outside.” Enjoy, and pass it on!

Awesome video!

CNN has Michael Carey from ADN on, discussing Stevens and the election. He points out that Stevens could win the election- and serve, as the appeal can be drawn out for months. He explained that the honorable senator had done a lot for Alaska (meaning pork), and many still liked him. Rick Sanchez was shaking his head…

Don’t ya just love politics?

CNN reports a shocker: suburbs are swinging toward Obama in key red states!
In Colorado and Indiana, now are leaning Obama, due to the burbs. The state of Washington is solid Obama, Florida a toss-up, Obama up by +4. I am no longer a spec of blue in my red burb- the economy, foreclosures trump the Repug mantra of low taxes.

I don’t want to jinx it by doing the happy dance before Tuesday night, so I’m humming a happy song in my head…

I was just reading back on an old thread, and am also majorly moved at the actions displayed by Dianna and Martha. I just so wish I could help somehow.

I am attending a Good Luck Obama party being held in New Zealand’s largest city, Tuesday night. Just to let you know that plenty of people outside of America are with you in spirit. And all of my US friends living here have confirmed they have already voted for Obama.

Finally, its my turn. :-) Joe Biden will be in my neighborhood tomorrow and I’ll be taking my oldest son plus a fraternity brother.
On monday, my youngest son was attending college 2 blocks from the Pittsburgh Obama rally (he voted by absentee ballot for Obama last week) but declined to attend because of a microbiology class. There was an angel on my one shoulder telling me that he made the correct decision and a devil on my other shoulder telling me that it is a once in a lifetime opportunity. I’m proud that he made the decision he did and will watch the infomercial tonight instead.

So many strange thoughts running around my head as the election gets closer.

1. Bush #1 spoke of a “kinder, gentler America. Maybe Obama can show him how to do it.
2. People think of the government as their enemy. Maybe Obama can change that.
3. Our government gives lip service to environmental concerns. Maybe Obama will be different.
4. There is despair in this country that is eating us alive. Maybe Obama has the prescription for that.
5. Progress to the future has been held back until the government found out how to allow corporations to make money off of it. Maybe Obama will lead us to progress.
6. We are hated around the world. Maybe Obama will change that.
7. There has been a “me first” attitude in this country for years. Maybe Obama can make that “us first.”
8. Our less fortunate citizens have been passed by for many years. Maybe Obama can see every citizen as equal.
9. Cost effective has been a buzz word for years and the disabled, injured veterans and those born with birth defects have suffered because it was not “cost effective” to help them. Maybe Obama will stop considering what is cost effective.
10. Our regulatory agencies are giving lip service to the law and people are dying because of it. Maybe Obama will make them do their job.

It was so cold that day, but it so worth being part of it. It was a hugely diverse crowd — white, black, Alaska Native, men as well as women, kids, dogs — & it was a lot of fun too.

Hey friends:
With less than a week to go, I for one am suffering from Pre-Election Stress Disorder. Anyone else?

Here are three very, very inspirational videos to tide us over.

This first is about Gen-we (the demographic group born between 1978 and 2000, which by 2016 will be the vast majority). Bless them! and their fellow travelers (I’m in! And you?):

http://www.gen-we.com/

This one is about the place of music in changing the world and you all know how much I subscribe to that particular belief. The video called Stand By Me is (part of a full-scale documentary featured on PBS’s Bill Moyer’s Journal the other night). You can read about it here. It was put out by a filmmaker who started a group called Playing for Change: Peace through music. It’s awesome.

http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=_A_ma2h0idk

and here is “yes we can” — I hadn’t watched it for a long time — it still gives me goosebumps and tears.

Hang in there everyone!!
xo,

“Our Greatest Fear” Watch McCain morph into Palin before your eyes…

I find the best place to relieve PESA (Pre-election stress anxiety) is http://www.Fivethirtyeight.com.

Remember – Nate Silver picked the Rays to be in the World Series last year back when most people were still calling them the Devil Rays!

This guy knows what he is talking about…

His advice today:

Here’s a fun little reality check for those of you who are sweating the trackers. Since our last update yesterday evening, I have added 34 polls to my database, including both state and national numbers. Barack Obama is ahead in 32 of those 34 polls. The two exceptions are in Arizona and Alaska, the home states of John McCain and his VP nominee, respectively.

Anybody know what is up with Sarah Palin rallying high school students in Ohio today?

Is this part of the RNC’s end game strategy to commit voter fraud by busing 14- and 15- year old children of right-wingers to the polls on Election Day to do a little shoulder-tapping in the attempt to get some adult’s legit voter card and commit voter fraud? Sounds like an evil political adaptation of that movie “Saved!”

The Adult Voter: “What do you want kid? Why are you tapping my shoulder in front of the election hall? We are not in front of a liquor store, and even if we were I wouldn’t buy your high school butt alcohol.”

The 15-year old child of the right-winger: “Oh, no sir. I am not tapping your shoulder because I want you to buy me alcohol. My evenagelical parents say it is a sin to elect a Muslim terrorist Marxist to be President of the United States. Oh, and they think he teamed up with O.J. to kill Nicole Brown Simpson. And, something about him and Michael Dukakis freeing Willie Horton. But, anyway, I will give you $50 bucks for your voter card so I can vote for Sarah “Barracuda” Palin. She’s my favorite. I have a photo-shopped life-size photo of her in a bathing suit hanging in my bedroom. My parents made me take down the poster I had of Halle Berry because they said I might become an Obama supporter if I started to fantasize about having a girlfriend from another race. Don’t tell them but I do have a girlfriend from another race. I met her online. She’s from California and she’s Dutch Indonesian. Cool, huh?”

No, it’s actually considered a form of demonic possession, so the courts won’t touch it. You need an exorcist. I don’t know who to recommend since Rev. Muthee is clearly engaged elsewhere… But come to think of it, he’s part of the problem, too. I guess you’ll just have to wait for it to pass on Nov. 5th, you’ll have to cope with knowing that you’re a campaign veteran and veterans will definitely get treated better under an Obama administration.

thing is, christain Evangelicals REALLY do believe this end time prophecy stuff!

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dan-treul/obama-signals-the-end-of_b_138778.html

this is funny….

Also commenting on the wesbite was Irelander Dominic McGinley:

“It seems to me that Sen. McCain’s campaign rests on arguments of little substance: that Sen. Obama’s middle name (Hussein) automatically links him, in the minds of some, with the deposed and executed Saddam, and with radical Islamists. Perhaps a similarly absurd analogy could be drawn with Senator John’s surname. In the Bible, Cain killed his brother Abel. Since McCain means ‘son of Cain’ Q.E.D. the senator must be related to the first known murderer!”

Hmm, it’s tempting, but more than likely not enough to convince evangelicals to abandon McCain. ‘Palling around with’ the first known murderer isn’t horrifying enough, I guess.

Might be great for doing chores to. Love the different colors that make up the flag too..brilliant. Is that an original Alaskan idea?

Now Senator (soon to be President) Obama just has to come here, doesn’t he.

I had an idea (again) after watching him suffer in the bad weather in PA. (And started thinking about during the raingear rally in Juneau Alaska) How about we come up with some dignified head gear so that he can keep the rain/snow off? Surely there are some artistic designer types in Alaska who might have an idea. I’m thinking the big yellow hats, rainhoods, and things with “bills” are not too Presidential looking. But maybe if someone thinks of something worthy of a stylish (yet humble) Leo he would wear it. What do you say? Senator Joe Biden and others in his campaign could wear them as well.

And when he comes, we’ll all give him cover like you wouldn’t believe (as far as body shields..)

Yes, the rest of us in CO have a love/hate relationship with the sizable population of evangelical wingnuts that reside in the Springs- we love to laugh at their ludicrous statements, but we are embarrassed by their hate. (The normal Springs residents prefer to ignore their existence.)

The homosexual meeting Focus on the Family was having? They sincerely believe that sexual orientation can be changed by prayer. Of course, they look at us who live in the Denver-Boulder area with great suspicion…

The video of Palin and Napolatino was from October of 2007. She didn’t acknowledge that she was pregnant, however

Jeannie See- thanks I wondered about the date- but she says her son is in boot camp so I wasn’t sure HOW recent the video was.

Thanks for the clarification.

ah damn! You made me cry! That was positively awesome!

As someone living in Wyoming, the least populous state in the Union, it heartens me to see another small population state turnout so many Obama supporters.

It helps me feel better about our tiny turnout last Friday in Sheridan. We had about 30 people there. I guess the other 270 supporters were afraid to come out because the rethugs in our town are getting so nasty. sigh.

I’ll be SO glad when the 5th rolls around and this is done. Glad to see the dingbat return to Alaska where you all can hopefully hand her her hat.

OMG!!! That was wonderful! Thank you AKM! Alaskans ROCK!!! What joy and glee in your devotion to Obama! Dedication in the most truest and purest form. And such a delightful counterpoint to the backers of the other camp who spew hate and threats as their signs of support.

I will be sending a link to all in my address book tonight so that those who still believe the falsehoods that SP’s still the most popular governor will come to realize that in the old RED state of Alaska there is a lot of BLUE!

— New ethics probe —

Travel Gate

CBS News has obtained a copy of the complaint that Frank Gwartney, a retired lineman in Anchorage filed last Friday, with Alaska’s Attorney General, Talis Colber in Juneau. “Palin ran on the platform of ethics, transparency and anti-corruption. I’m tired of the hypocrisy that exists in Government and people need to know the truth,” said Gwartney.

And now the RNC is accusing the Republican Governor of Florida of handing over Florida to the Democrats because Charlie Crist has extended Early Voting hours to accommodate all of the citizens of his state that desired to cast an early ballot.

Did Rush Limbaugh, Karl Rove, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter, Steve Schmidt, and the ghost of Lee Atwater really believe they could suppress the votes of all African-Amercians, women, Latinos, and young people in 2008?

And, why isn’t Karl Rove in prison?

This video made me cry or joy.

I just got home from doing my 3 hrs of volunteering at the Demo Office, calling to remind people to vote on Tuesday. It was so much fun, and I enjoyed all the other volunteers. I am a bit hearing and sight challenged so being in a room full of people all talking at once, while fun and exciting did give me more of a challenge than I expected. What to do? What to do? I talked the leadman into letting me talk the program home so I can call from the quite of my own little office, with my big wide flat screen and my hearing enhanced phone. So, if any of you Mudpuppies are in ID you may be hearing from me in the next 5 days. I’ll just be asking if you are going to vote, if you know where your polling place is, and if you need a ride to the polls.

Vote 11/4 Obama/Biden

We went to hear Obama speak at a rally in Sarasota, Florida today! Over 20,000 people there! It took 1 1/2 hours to get into the stadium, the streets were blocked off, lines were doubling back and forth up and down the road and through the parking lots. The place was filled to capacity. Campaign workers made statements like, I thought this was a really “red” area; we were pleasantly shocked to see so many people there! My daughter loved it and cheered with the crowd and we were so thrilled to see him on stage. I have pictures and video, but I do not know how to upload them here. I would love to share as soon as I can so any advice would be great.

I also just spent 2 hours carving pumpkins; I did mine with Obama’s face and HOPE on it. I can’t wait to light it up. What a beautiful day, very positive and the experience of a lifetime. :) :) :)

First, I was born in Anchorage 6 months to the day that it became a state. We moved a year later and I have never been back. As a kid, I would study interesting facts about Alaska because Anchorage was such a far off place to the Midwest. I was very proud to be different than all the other kids. Funny, those silly little stories fade away as you get older, but when Palin was picked for the GOP VP my ears perked up. I’m sure Sarah is a nice person, but to lead the country that I volunteered to serve, I have never felt that she has ever spoken to me as a citizen of the USA.

But I must say that after watching the human logo video, there are a lot of proud people in Alaska. People that want nothing more than to be heard and show their love of country as well. I applaud you for your inspirational dedication in not just saying what an American is, but showing what an American is. It has made a middle-age distant native feel pretty good. Thanks for that! Good luck to all of you.
