I grew up reading comic books wanting to be a superhero. Comics taught me that those who speak the truth are heroes, all the rest are liars.

Oh, It's On, Bring It!

The GOP both locally and nationally continue to push bills against women, immigrants, GLBT, minorities, non-christians, the poor and unions. They've become emboldened by each others chest thumping and back slapping and see it as a mandate to pass hot-button bills against 'we the people'.

In lieu of creating jobs, balancing the budget, or reducing the deficit, they are passing a plethora of bills meant to restrict and repress 'we the people' and repeal all safeguards meant to protect 'we the people' against big corporations. They have empowered the wealthy while taking our pennies. The injustice and lost of liberty makes their actions unAmerican. They have failed America.
“It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope.” -RFK
Each of us need to start creating ripples until a tsunami transforms our government back to 'we the people' and away from the special interests, the greedy and the corporations. Take a stand for what is right for our families and community. Give voice against the repression, support our values of justice and liberty...demand our elected representatives do the same. Oh its on, bring it...

I miss you Kent...goddammit...I've only got so much heart to lose...and you just took a chunk of it. The world will miss you, it just doesn't know yet -love ts
