Water is our most Precious Resource

I'm Gonna Go Out and Dance.

I'm feeling like someone kicked me in the stomach. I can barely breathe, or think straight. The sellout of our environment is weeks from happening. Obama has caved. Paterson has dismantled New York's environmental protection. The EPA is even telling people in NYC to not drink the water!!!

I don't know where to look to find hope, or strength. It looks to me right now like greed is gonna win, and I just don't know what to do or what to say.... so tonight, I'm going to go out and dance. Because what else is there, if we can't find the smallest joys in our lives?

Voting is IMPERATIVE!!!

I've certainly gone through different phases in my life - from being a political activist to completely apathetic - so I understand why people feel like not putting out the effort to vote tomorrow, given the state of politics. But I truly believe that we're at a turning point right now, and if we allow the far right to take over our political landscape, we will never be able to turn it back.

Tea Partiers are talking war and violence to get their way, and they sound just like crying little 3 year olds who scream to get their toys back. In the worlds of behavioral experts, like "Cave Men".

So, to go out and cast your vote for non-extremist candidates tomorrow is to vote for sanity, progress and democracy. To NOT vote is in actuality a vote for regression and the cultivation of a society based on fear, and fear alone.

It's a few minutes out of your day.... make those minutes count!

VOTE on Tuesday November 2nd!!!
