Ted Kennedy Attacks GOP and Big Business on Greed!

Suicide rate is up for 99 weekers (those who have been dropped from the system who aren’t even counted in statistics anymore) who can’t find work, food or housing…  Joe Biden today said this would not happen on his watch… the Whitehouse needs to wake up and smell the coffee.

When will the greed stop and our leadership get back to doing the peoples business and not be owned by big business!!!

Auld Lang Syne, Kenny G and baseball

This tribute touches me deeply…

I hope it has a place in your heart as we move onward and upward into the next decade together with  the common goal to survive and thrive together peacefully and lovingly.  Since, we are our best when things are at there worst;  this montage illuminates this simple thought to me.

So lets get back out on the field in 2010 brush the dirt off of our knees and yell from the bottom of our lungs; ok PLAY BALL!

I am looking forward to seeing you all on the field; and shaking your hands as we change the field between innings knowing that it isn’t whether you win or loose or what team you are on, but it is how you play the game.

Ted Kennedy Healthcare Speech 1978

Who are we and what do we stand for.  Isn’t it time to look long and hard in the mirror?   Let’s not drop the torch.

Please pass this clip around till the cows (pigs) come home:

“Cowardice asks the question, Is it safe? Expediency asks the question, Is it politic? Vanity asks the question, Is it popular? But conscience asks the …question, Is it right?

And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because his conscience tells him that it is right.”
