Meet Bill Napoli [10 Mar 2006|04:10am]

wednesdayview
State Senator Bill Napoli (R-SD) defines how badly a woman would have to be raped before he would consider her an exception to South Dakota's new abortion ban.

FRED DE SAM LAZARO: Napoli says most abortions are performed for what he calls "convenience." He insists that exceptions can be made for rape or incest under the provision that protects the mother's life. I asked him for a scenario in which an exception may be invoked.

BILL NAPOLI: A real-life description to me would be a rape victim, brutally raped, savaged. The girl was a virgin. She was religious. She planned on saving her virginity until she was married. She was brutalized and raped, sodomized as bad as you can possibly make it, and is impregnated. I mean, that girl could be so messed up, physically and psychologically, that carrying that child could very well threaten her life.

BECAUSE RAPE ISN'T TRAUMATIC IF YOU'RE NOT A VIRGIN. Right. Of course.

Take a moment to call or e-mail State Senator Bill Napoli and let him know that rape can "mess up" a woman or girl, even if she's had sex before.

And then, Google-bomb the bastard.

Who else watches West Wing and thinks that Martin Sheen would make a kick-ass president? And does anyone else find Bradley Whitford (Josh Lyman on the show) incredibly sexy?

new_york_cityx
my friend from California started a campaign to draft Martin Sheen for governor of California. we need to get Governator Ahhnold Swartzenegger out of office before the constitution gets amended and he is allowed to run for President. yikes! if you are interested in signing the petition and helping to collect more signatures, please e-mail me at AP5597@msn.com or leave your e-mail address. it is good if you live in California, but it would be better if you lived elsewhere besides California because it will show that Martin Sheen has nation-wide support.


thanks!

What day is it? That's right, ELECTION DAY!! [02 Nov 2004|05:52am]

hippiewrites

!'Lo everyone. Do you know what day it is? November 2nd. And I'm sure you all know what that means. It's one of the most important days that we will ever witness in our teenage years. One that could change our future, the world, <i>everything</i>. And if you want a say in how this county's going to change, go out and vote.

If you're unable to vote, that doesn't mean you can't still participate. There's still time. I'm going to go  campaign with my Dad after school today. And it's never to early to start getting interested in politics. It is a crucial and imperative part of your life and everyone's lives. I can't stress how important this is, I just hope you go out and vote.

GO JOHN KERRY!!

-== vote for Eminem's 'Mosh' - make MTV play it =-- [28 Oct 2004|02:37pm]

paintwaste
Want to put an ad out on the air in a prime spot to move and motivate the many new, young voters to cast their ballots for change, but don't have any money? Easy - just vote for Eminem's scathing new video "Mosh" on MTV's "total request live" show. It's as good as a campaign ad, but coming from someone that they're more likely to listen to, rather than their nearest primped and polished politician. Not only does this powerful video have the potential to really motivate people to the polls through rain sleet and snow, but it also may have a decent chance at swaying the undecided, uninterested, and swing voters to the other side. By pure strength in numbers, we could force the controversey-shy MTV to play this video for every day from now to election day. Forward the link to friends.

Vote for it at: http://www.mtv.com/onair/trl/vote/



Watch it at: http://www.gnn.tv/content/eminem_mosh.html (includes a small file, and a very high quality 45 mb file for those with fast connections)

"Bush Defends Policy In Iraq" [22 Sep 2004|11:59am]

hippiewrites
"Bush Defends Policy in Iraq", As the newspaper aptly stated, referring to George Bush's speech to the UN.

He told them we're making progress. To quote the article, he "Brushed aside concerns about violence and disorder in Iraq and told the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday that the country is making progress."

He brushedaside concerns about violence. Well, first off, we're at war with one of the most lethal countries in the world..Of course there's going to be violence!

He also stated that "It's very important for the people of the world really to know that we are winning, we are making progress in Iraq, we are defeating terrorists. Unfortunately, the media have not been covering these significant gains in Iraq."

Are we really 'winning the war', is the 'mission really accomplished?' No. Last time I checked, the media certainly wasn't covering significant gains in Iraq...But they were covering the last 2 beheadings of American soldiers. And the possible beheading of a British prisoner, today.

I'd say that's progress, wouldn't you? Why hasn't the country been uprising against this? Shouldn't we be more adamant about these beheadings? About this unjust war?

Bush went into this war with less than 25% of the U.N. in accordance with him. Therefore, the odds were terribly against him. Yet we went to Iraq anyway. With one allie, Britain. And even Tony Blair is starting to disagree, thinking this war really may not be such a good idea after all.

But Bush still continues to say it's improving, we're making our country safer. We're stopping terrorists. If anything, we're provoking them and endangering our country!

Every day, I think to myself: How can he lie to his country?
Then I hope against hope that we have a turn for the better come November.

Election 2004 [12 Sep 2004|04:10pm]

hippiewrites
Since when is the president elected by intimidation and slander?... I guess it's always been that way, but every time I see a campaign commercial, it depresses me. And like a good Zeppelin song, it makes me wonder.

What has happened to the world?

All politicians should be for their ideas about the future, what they want for this country. At this point, all I see in a Bush commercial is, not what Bush is going to do, but what Kerry can't do. And it's not just Bush anymore, either. I know that as we near November, it's going to get worse, but I can truly say that this past year, all I see it negativity.

And they call liberals pessimistic? They can kiss my ass, pardon my French.. er.. freedom?? I'm not sure I can even say that, I'm afraid I'll have to deal with the FCC!

Moving on, has anyone noticed that our rights are being stripped away day by dad? We don't even have freedom of speech anymore, let alone freedom of the press. You can't even super-size your meal at McDonald's, for Christ's sake. As far as I'm concerned, if the public wants to listen to 'explicit lyrics', clog their arteries, and play violent video games, more power to them. They're just going to rebellious if you tell them not to.

That brings me to the drinking age. Why was it changed to 18, then changed again to 21? At 18, you can die for your country, be tried as an adult, be EXECUTED, but you can't drink. Does that make ANY sense??

Half the problem with drinking these days, is that it's such a big deal in America. I think that's why the drinking age is heavily enforced here. In Europe, it's part of their culture (which I think, sadly, is also being lost). It's just not a big deal over there. Children are raised in some countries, to drink alcohol at the dinner table. Since they grew up with it, most of them know not to abuse it.

Going to Europe this past summer really opened my eyes. Everything over there is just so different. I was told, before I left the US, to leave my prudish ways at home. It's not like they're wild, crazy, immoral people or anything, they just don't obsess over the things we do... like nudity. Like alcohol, nudity is also not a big deal.

You know how they say 'sex sells'? Well it does, the only difference is, that over there, they can have nudity in their advertisements. Whereas here, we've got politicians covering Lady Liberty's breasts. I saw an ad for water in Naples, where it had a womans breasts right out there in the open, plastered on the walls about 300 times.

It's not like they've got nudity everywhere, it's just accepted over there. Atleast publicly. I mean, in England, they've got 'N-15' movies. They're basically the same as our 'R' rated movies, if I'm not mistaken.

Do they think they're protecting us from this 'vile trash'? I mean, it's a damned body for Christ's sake. WE ALL HAVE ONE!

I think that if we spent half as much time worrying about the real issues in our country as we do about censorship and other trivial matters, we'd be a lot better off.

Hurricane Frances and our Lovely, Lovely President [12 Sep 2004|04:01pm]

hippiewrites
For all the Floridians in this community, I'm sure you've all heard of the destruction that hurricane Frances has caused over the past week.

Hundreds of thousands of people were without power and water, so Bush flew to various cities across the state of Florids for a **cough** photo-op! **cough**...er.... charity.

One of the cities he visited was Ft. Pierce (that's where I live if you didn't know that). He and his brother (our lovely governor. Who knew Jeb was the smart one!?!?) handed out water and ice to the citizens without water.

Sounds nice, right? It's not that I don't appreciate his 'charity', but you know as well as I that if it weren't for the election, I doubt he would've shown any interest in this state at all. Since Florida is a swing state, he had to come and 'do his good deeds'.

Blaaaaah. [28 Aug 2004|09:20pm]

[ mood | mellow ]

IntroductionCollapse )

Now that the introduction of myself is done, we can go on to the good part. Lol.

I didn't exactly join this community in support of John Kerry. I actually hate the man, why? Probably because my parents do and I have nothing better to do right now then to follow them. YET, I do have my own views and they might be the same as John Kerry's but.. oh well.

First thing, gay marriage. Leave it up to the states. Who the hell is the government to say who can't be married. Sure, MANY people think its wrong and that it should be banned from America. But guess what. This is America. I think thats all I need to say about that.

Second thing, a little.. uh, retort, I guess(?) from Dani's post about racism. Not all rednecks sit there and say that(I dunno if you said some or what, cause I kinda forgot). Anyway. My family.. redneck. I'm redneck. My grandparents are rednecks. My parents are rednecks(well, actually not my Mom). Hell, my DOG is even a redneck. I know for a fact that my one of my grandmothers is.. well, I don't want to say racist.. she doesn't talk about it at all. Not around me at least. But from what my Dad has said to me, she doesn't like black people - or the black people that cause trouble. Same way with my late Grandfather. He'd watch cops and say.. "I bet its a black person they're chasing!" Of course my Grandmother would tell him to hush.

I'm thankful that none of that hasn't seeped into me though. You all still have to understand that some old people are like.. yeah.. way back when. So their values are still set on judging people by race. And our parents are almost the same way because our grandparents raised them that way. Racism isn't just formed, its handed down from generation to generation. If you tell your kids early in life to never talk to a black person and keep telling them that.. they'll grow up to be racist.

I think what I'm trying to get at is that there will always be racism, it won't go away. Back in the woods of the country, there will DEFINITELY be racism because, sadly, thats just apart of their lives. They aren't called rednecks and they aren't called hillbillies, I just like to call them racists. If you tainted a certain "group" of being racists then it ruins all the others that certainly don't think that way.

Which brings me into another subject, the Confederate Flag. Why do people call it racism? Its not. Its seriously not. Its a piece of history. Its apart of this country wether people want to accept it or not. I fly my Confederate Flag with pride because its the symbol of the South. It's not a symbol for racism, if it was.. I can promise you that I wouldn't be letting it fly on my house or whatnot. That flag stands for our history, the South's heritage and everything that went on during the Civil War(that was the war, right? Lol). Like the quote goes.. "Heritage, Not Hate".

Okay, my fingers hurt.. thats it for now. Lol.

ENJOY MY LONG POST, EMILY. :D

I've created a "lovemark" for Kerry on the lovemarks website, and sent a link to all of my friends... I went to go look at how it was doing, and I was dismayed to learn that a bunch of nasty Bushies had gone to my page and voted "lose it" on it...YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME. Anyway, it's nothing that will directly affect the election, but it's a fun website where you can nominate things that inspire you. I, of course, nominated John Kerry!!!!!!

So, for those of you who are fellow Kerry supporters, please consider taking a moment to SUPPORT OUR MAN. Here is the link:
http://www.lovemarks.com/lm/read.php?LID=2260#Scene_1

Go to the lower left of the screen under Kerry's pic and vote "love it!!" You can also leave favorable comments about our guy. A lot of people from all over the world see this site. Unfortunately, I think some Bush supporters are deleting their cookies and voting over and over again, so I really hope I can get a lot of people to vote for Kerry!

Thank you again. If there is anything I can do to help any of you, like participate in a poll or visit your website, etc, let me know.

Concert [07 Aug 2004|02:34pm]

hippiewrites
[ mood | Rain ]

I'm not sure if anyone's heard of 'MoveOn', but it's a liberal political action committee. They're presenting a tour, aptly named "The Concert for Changed". They're touring to some of the United States 'swing states', in hopes to enlist new members.
They're coming to Florida, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina and Wisconsin, to name a few.
They're visiting 28 cities, and are performing 38 shows.
A few of the artists include Bruce Springsteen, REM, Pearl Jam and the Dave Matthews Band. These artists are all playing at various venues, and will not all perform together. But if you're interested, I have a feeling it will be a great show.

I might be able to go with my Aunts to see Bruce Sprinsteen and REM on October 8th.

For more information, go to http://www.moveonpac.org/vfc/
You can also get your tickets there, if you're intersted. There is a complete band and show listing there.

I've posted a couple of times these past few days about issues I really think should be heard, and no one seems to be responding to.

I made this community so that we could express our views about this country, and to present awareness of the issues in our country, and I'd like to know if anyone really does care.

Just comment, please, just to say if you read it or something...I don't want to lose hope, here.

The Statue of Liberty Re-Opens [04 Aug 2004|05:08pm]

hippiewrites
[ mood | chipper ]

As of Tuesday, August 3, 2004, the Statue of Liberty has re-opened.
Details can be viewed here: http://edition.cnn.com/2004/US/Northeast/08/03/statue.of.liberty.ap/index.html


While it has reopened, visitors are prohibited from going into Lady Liberty's crown, officials saying that it's dangerous.

"I think it shows the world that liberty cannot be intimidated," Assistant Interior Secretary Craig Manson said during a media preview tour Monday. "I think it's significant that despite the raising of the alert levels, we are still going ahead with the reopening."

That made me laugh... As I'm in the car, I see all these cars with their patriotic slogans citing "These Colors Don't Run". Well at this point, we're basically living in fear. Anticipating terrorist attacks every day, worried to walk outside because of our heightened terror alert. We're giving in to what terrorists worldwide want.

We need to step up and put our best foot forward. I think that, as a country, we're living in a pessimistic world. While we do need to be aware of the issues, we shouldn't let them run our lives. And that's exactly what we're doing. We're living in fear.

I remember reading a conservative news article the other day, saying that liberals are 'pessimistic and un-American'. If anyone's being pessimistic, it's those who say liberals are 'Un-American, who don't want a positive change for our country'.

I really do stress that everyone reads John Kerry's speech at the DNC.

To quote John Kerry, "We're told that outsourcing jobs is good for America. We're told that new jobs that pay $9,000 less than the jobs that have been lost is the best we can do. They say this is the best economy we've ever had. And they say that anyone who thinks otherwise is a pessimist. Well, here is our answer: There is nothing more pessimistic than saying America can't do better. We can do better and we will. We're the optimists. For us, this is a country of the future."

John Kerry [01 Aug 2004|05:37pm]

hippiewrites
[ mood | determined ]

As most of you know, John Kerry made his speech in Boston, MA just a few short days ago. John Kerry adressed his country at the Democratic Convention. Unfortunately, I didn't get to actually see the speech, but I was fortunate to find the text version of his speech. There's a section where you can view him adressing the country. I found his speech truly moving. And whether you consider yourself a democrat or a republican, you should read this speech. Because it is good to know both sides of the story to stay well informed.

The video version of Kerry's speech is about one hour long, and I suggest you take the time to either watch or read his speech at http://www.johnkerry.com/pressroom/speeches/spc_2004_0729.html

The video clip can also be found at www.johnkerry.com by clicking on John Kerry on the left hand side of the page.
