Subject:What to do if you have trouble voting...
Security:Public

Today's Elections won't be decided by the remaining 3% undecided vote, it will be decided by which side's people is more dedicated and turn out to vote in greater numbers. Voter turnout is expected to be the highest since 1968. Please bring everyone you can with you to the polls. And even if you need to wait in line, your effort could make the difference!!

Here is some information to help. Try to vote early, in case you encounter any problems. If you are in line before the polls close, you still have the right to vote. I received a call Monday giving me the WRONG VOTING LOCATION! Don't be fooled be anyone trying to disenfranchize your vote.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Where to vote - call your county Board of Elections clerk or look it up at: www.mypollingplace.com

If you don't know where to go on election day, the best thing to do is to call your state's election official. Click here to find the number: http://www.nass.org/electioninfo/state_contacts.htm

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Democratic Party: Call 1-866-228-1452 in Ohio. In each swing state, the Democratic Party has set up a special hotline you can call if you're concerned that your vote won't count. Just call 1-866-228-1452. This should be your first call if you run into a problem.

Kucinich endorses Kerry-Edwards

I suppose all Democrats end up endorsing the big guys. Anyways, I wish Dennis all the best in his quest for a better America and a better world. And let us continue to endure that quest.

I sure as hell know for sure that no one important's going to see this, but I challenge EVERY anti-Moore wingnut out there to ACTUALLY GO SEE THE MOVIE. Yes - before you start running your mouths about how Moore is "inaccurate, immature, Reifenstahl" and blah blah blah, why don't you go out there and see it for yourself how "inaccurate" it is? And NO, quoting Hitchens's latest screed is NOT equivalent to watching the movie. I want you to be able to quote a line from that movie and try and see if you can refute it. Mike himself is offering $10K to anyone who can refute ANY of his statements. so why aren't you taking the challenge?! You wingnuts like money, don't you?

Support it's opening because a lot of people judge movies by watching opening weekend numbers. If it does good the people who were indecisive will go as well as all the sheeple who wait to be told whats good, the ones that always do what everyone else is doing. Once it becomes mainstream, the topics will finally become mainstream.

Go see the movie they've been fighting to keep from being seen.

I just got a call from the Kucinich campaign. It is still going stronger then most people think it's going. He is still in the race, if only to promote the voice and will of progressive voters. It has me pretty inspired. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the inspiration but I have a pretty good idea.

It isn't too long until Boston, when Kucinich supports whoever the democratic party nominates. A part of me hopes he is able to run instead of Kerry, but that doesn't seem likely.

I am not sure what I am going to do should Kerry win the nomination, a near certainty unless he should die or pull out of the race for some reason. Will I say I will vote for Kerry, or will I say I trust Representative Kucinich's endorsment and will vote accordingly.

Dear MoveOn member,

Today, the Bush administration is formally introducing new rules that
will make
millions of people ineligible for overtime protection when they work
more than 40 hours per week.

This change has been in the works for months, and thousands of MoveOn
members have called on Congress to oppose the new rules. Congress has
responded -- bipartisan majorities in both houses have voted against
rolling back overtime.

Subject:project idea - help!
Security:Public
Mood: calm

Since y'all are on the same page as me, I wanted to share this idea I pitched to my friends and musicial peers the other day. I would love for this project to be HUGE, like if we could get a big name or organization such as TrueMajority or MoveOn to sponsor/support it. Of course, when taking on something this huge I cannot do it alone so its only going to get done if I get passionate people on the team.

SO...the idea revolves around freedom of speech, voting for the upcoming election, and in general how musicians are viewed. You know the phrase you often hear "well, music should be free!!!" really? In any case, please feel free to tell everyone you know about my idea. I really don't want to toss it.

THANKS!!!! <3

Security:Public
Mood: accomplished

Hi friends! :)
I just had to share something with y'all. Local Kucitizens of mine set up this great political statement and it was a success! I thought you'd appreciate the story. This happened Tues. at the Kerry rally in Chicago, downtown.

copied & pasted from an email:

Hi to all, The Kerry rally maneuver by the (Chicago-Kucinich- Desperados) was
totally successful, we got on all the cameras and one of us even got her name taken
by a Philippine paper, we had signs saying: WE'VE BEEN HERE BEFORE,
NADER/BUSH/GORE(kerry) ONCE MORE, BUT WHO DO YOU VOTE FOR, IF YOU ARE ANTI-WAR???
KERRY/KUCINICH 04!!! then they came and took our signs away but we had 1 left, the
one that said KERRY/KUCINICH 04!! So we had the smallest of us wiggle up to the
front of Kerry and display it and he looked right at it!!! It was great to push the
envelope!!!

Subject:Larry King debate and biased news coverage
Security:Public
Mood: annoyed

CNN has delivered slanted coverage for this democratic primary election. If you watched the debate with Larry King on CNN last night you will notice the biased angle of this news article on the their website.

http://www.cnn.com/2004/ALLPOLITICS/02/27/elec04.prez.debate/index.html

Please contact CNN to tell them that this will not be tolerated.
http://www.cnn.com/feedback/
THANKS!!! :) :) :)


Here is an example letter:
Today (Fri. Feb 27th), I read an article under the "Inside Politics" section of the CNN website called "Dems spar-- gently -- over electability, gay marriage, Iraq" and I must say that I have become extremely upset with CNN's constant Sensationalistic reporting on the coverage (or lack thereof) of the Presidential Election of 2004.

It is my belief that CNN's opinion of the best candidate for Presidency should never be expressed in a news report to the public, and I urge you to please consider being fair and just in your reporting in the future. In this article, and articles previous, not all of the Democratic candidates have been considered by CNN as serious candidates for President of the United States. Specifically, Rep. Dennis Kucinich and Rev. Al Sharpton.

Categorizing the two as "long-shot candidates" is just not acceptable journalistic reporting, especially five days before super Tuesday (the biggest voting day on the Democratic calendar). Furthermore, this article contains not one quote from Rep. Dennis Kucinich from last night's Debate with Larry King, which shows that CNN itself is playing "moderator" in what they want and don't want the American public to know.

Fortunately enough, I watched the debate, so I know everything that was discussed. But to the people who didn't get the opportunity to see it, you are doing an injustice.

During these crucial times in American Politics, it is of the utmost importance that CNN remains fair and unbiased, and provides people with the most accurate reporting possible.

Thank you very much for your time.

Security:Public

So I've been wearing my Kucinich button, and twice in the last couple of days friends have seen it and asked, "Didn't he drop out?" One even said that he read a newspaper article that mentioned "the two remaining candidates, Kerry and Edwards..." or something to that effect.
I have definitely been aware of how much the media has shortshrifted Kucinich (and Sharpton), but these instances really hit home for me. Argh.

hey guys... i've been an avid kucinich supporter since i read up on him, but i had never heard of this until now... (see "seventh worst")

anyone have any ideas as to whether or not this harbours a shred of truth? the "experts" of penn state seem to have a rather different recollection of his mayoral life than that which i've become accustomed to hearing.
