Southern Poverty Law Center is an amazing organization that once again is in the headlines for unfortunate reasons.
Their web site is extremely informative and certainly worth looking at even if you are not interested in donating to them.
They fight against all forms of prejudice and fight for the rights of everyone, especially the most vulnerable.
Truly worth checking out if you have never heard of them.

Dear Friend,

Over the last few days, we’ve been swamped with requests for information about the two neo-Nazi skinheads who planned a murderous rampage ending with the assassination of Barack Obama. We’ve been consulted by law enforcement because of our expertise.

We reported on our website that one of the skinheads involved was affiliated with a newly formed organization called the Supreme White Alliance (SWA).

The SWA is headed by a man named Steven Edwards, who is steeped in a violent culture of racial extremism. We’ve been following his activities for some time. You can find out more about Edwards in a report by ABC’s Nightline that aired last night.

The skinheads’ plot to kill Obama and murder other African Americans is a chilling reminder of the threat posed by these domestic terrorists.

Unfortunately, I fear we’re entering a dangerous period. Obama’s candidacy has aroused fierce passions among white supremacists. And during times of economic hardship, minorities are often targeted as scapegoats for our country’s problems.

We cannot afford to take threats like this lightly. With your help, we’re doing everything we can to track and expose violent racists — and we’ll continue providing the best intelligence available to law enforcement.

Thanks for being on our team. With your moral and financial support, we’ll continue this important fight against the forces of hate and intolerance.

Senator McCain if anything, is not a quitter. He may be down in the polls, but he’s not out. He has embraced his underdog image and now is trying to get the average joe out there to empathize with his cause. (Sorry Sarah Palin but “Joe Sixpack” is a little demeaning to me). Of course there is a poll discussing the “underdog” issue.

What say you? C’mon take the Poll….here is the link-

One of these guys is going to end up YOUR President of the United States! So many of us complain about what we DON’T want! This is a time to have a voice for what you DO want. If you are anti-war…. vote for the candidate who is pro-peace! If you want better healthcare reform vote for the person who wants affordable healthcare. The choice is up to you.

There are so many negative posts about Obama and McCain (some are downright nasty). It makes one want to walk away from the media B.S., have a Pop-Tart and a diet Faygo rather than vote.

This election has forced the Democrats and the Republicans to really listen to what the average person wants! Not just the select few (who usually decide these political outcomes).

There are some out there who believe the average American doesn’t have the political background to make a well-informed decision.  So read what you can, view what you can, read blogs, newspaper articles, watch the networks, CNN, MSNBC, & Fox News.

The political hierarchy is watching to see if the average American is concerned about this election, but lets take this one step further.  Folks, whenever you can, wherever you can, vote on the LOCAL level also.  Voting for representatives in your own community is just as important if not more than the big elections.

Young Americans, you could make or break this Presidential election.  You have a voice that will echo for decades to come.  So Register.  Vote.  Vote!

It is my hope that we have record turn outs for this election.  Pass it on.  Tell others to register now.

The positive aspect of any election is the right to be heard with your vote.

The more who vote the louder the voice!

P.S. my apologies to the makers of diet Faygo.
