[PDI] Fwd: Fear, Hate, Racism and the Pain of 9/11

Click on first link.

Good Example IMO of what I call the Ron Paul Phenomenon. Moreover, this
phenomenon seems to have morphed into the Tea Party Phenomenon, which
was co-opted early on and is now a wholly owned subsidiary of the Evil
Empire. Its tactics include distractions with subtle appeals to hate,
and other negative emotions.

Again DK needs help. Do what you can, and forward to others who want to
see true monetary reform (which will represent a monumental power shift
AWAY from the big banks - exactly the reason he is targeted).

Fear, Hate, Racism and the Pain of 9/11

Dear Friends,

Cleveland is the epicenter of a sub-prime meltdown with an extraordinary
level of foreclosures and a very high level of unemployment.

My Republican opposition has thrown into this mix the politically
incendiary issue of immigration through radio ads, telephone calls,
electronic billboards and direct mail.

*Here is a link to one of several gutter level distortions that are
appearing in mailboxes across the district.
<http://kucinich.us/1020_10_30_fear_hate_racism_pain_of_911.pdf>*

Additionally, my supporters in the district who have chosen to put up
lawn signs in support of my candidacy are receiving at their door
anonymous circulars which can only be described as menacing, aimed at
stirring up hate, racism and the pain of 9/11

We have three days to go until the election. *Your contributions*
<http://kucinich.us/contribute> have enabled us to buy TV and radio time
to respond to these attacks.

*Click here to hear our radio ad and view our ad for TV.
<http://kucinich.us/Re-Elect>*

Anything you can contribute between now and Monday morning will enable
us to increase the size of our media buy and perhaps even create more ads.

I'm heartened by the response to my campaign's appeal over the last two
days. People really do care. People really do want a government that's
decent and fair. People want a nation that *IS* courageous, that seeks
unity, that tries to live the deeper meaning of democracy.

Thank you, so much for everything that you do to keep these sentiments
alive.

Sincerely
Dennis

LA TIMES

*/NATION - POLITICAL COMMENTARY FROM ANDREW MALCOLM/*

*Is Tuesday looking so bad that even Dennis Kucinich is an endangered
species?*
October 29, 2010 | 2:36 am . latimesblogs.latimes.com
<http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/washington/2010/10/dennis-kucinich-dennis-kucinich.html>

Ohio Democratic Rep. Dennis Kucinich is a tough little guy who has
bounced up and back from numerous family and political adversities in
his 64 years.

He's lived in the family car; shined shoes; been a court clerk, a young
Cleveland city councilman, a victorious, obstreperous big-city mayor, a
defeated, obstreperous big-city mayor; and, since the Clinton landslide
of 1996, an obstreperous House member from Ohio's 10th congressional
district.

But for how long?

Now seeking his eighth term, the liberal Kucinich is up against a
competitive Republican opponent this time (Peter Corrigan, an area
businessman) in a depressed city in a depressed state in a depressing
year for Democrats.

You may have read a little something here or there about how bad
election day is supposed to be for President Obama's party, even in
Ohio, which Obama won, 51% to 47%, in 2008 after losing the primary
there to Hillary Clinton, 53% to 45%.

Obama hasn't visited Ohio as often as he golfs. But he's been there
enough to know that the continuing high unemployment rate (10%) in the
crucial battleground state is helping to....

...hold virtually all Democrats behind in statewide races there
<http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?llr=9uu6zlcab&et=1103846073326&s=49865&e=001qjGp6AG11u26GXvmeMd1PWIZp_vuzq6bzjxmZeiE3OE_Vt42GWh2sPIK7vNhGBJxpMf2UF6_D_2ITYEppQ7LAeYZp6iP9sp8uaTdnBujHu01sDwBwKh9bIJNSk0WQjHWqHiUSkpT6v8=>,
including governor (incumbent Democrat Ted Strickland vs Republican
ex-Rep. John Kasich , who's had numerous GOP heavyweights pitch in
including Sarah Palin, Chris Christie, Tim Pawlenty and Haley Barbour)
and senator (the GOP's ex-Rep. Rob Portman, who's dominating Lieut. Gov.
Lee Fisherfor George Voinivich's open seat). (As for Ohio's import,
Republicans have not won the presidency without the state in 102 years.)

Obama will return to Cleveland yet again this Sunday as part of his
last-minute rhetorical carpet-bombing. See, "Why is nobody listening to
Obama?
<http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?llr=9uu6zlcab&et=1103846073326&s=49865&e=001qjGp6AG11u1wAbkfZGNoNRNTtH9-Gl2k2c53LXNrcGNXQCkozO7GZXPeqLVxzHjkV6aqFgVLiErBtgGE_Mb0TOpbrpJ8pyldU5URa4BHDJXHnOXoku96D4jqhgUH_iZ0kfvG5ELEPI0YwKaP2yOwG3mHFa6WJXwgIXP2_ibPClQFw7CAA1o-yqS3dTO4_UkR>"
But he probably won't repeat the mistake he made on "The Daily Show."
The Democrat paid a sincere compliment to his economic team. But even
that sympathetic audience laughed.

(Severe Weather Alert: If the GOP's election successes trickle down to
state legislative races in the Buckeye state and elsewhere, Republicans
will be drawing the new legislative districts from the 2010 Census that
will shape political representation nationally for the next decade.)

Now, it seems even Kucinich's once-safe local House seat could be among
the projected 50-or-60 changing political posteriors when the next
Congress convenes come January, making Nancy Pelosi a new former House
speaker and turning Ohioan John Boehner into a new former non-Speaker.

A private poll reported earlier this month
<http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?llr=9uu6zlcab&et=1103846073326&s=49865&e=001qjGp6AG11u3VCnTm-xaU1V_f6P3zpl8VKFlCh1jdZvaTY5VuF0OSjUn9vMghz1VTjs_frFuaCMt777CO6AplZFVG_MH-H9CsHnwJad3H7iJUyBamq0K0V_RdfOd6Pt5KC4PRJ8qsjrM2O0XtB8TsA9D_ps12yHbjYHqNcnywBw0=>
by the Weekly Standard's William Kristol indicated that Kucinich held
only a 4-point lead in a district that he used to own with winning
percentages in the 70s. Then, RealClearPolitcs' Sean Trende
<http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?llr=9uu6zlcab&et=1103846073326&s=49865&e=001qjGp6AG11u0QoABzs981CuzKPsOGRKdlBqtbzoXdEa4YIZ6jppM9XUJvWKrb9IUBgjO9V5pVxtqyNU4KdA4CrReGqLkHQwq7u7jYFbhVGSgwrRNZnda8-69xWijEy8M22n8BzwMSr7-RSZnd7u4RqN6pPStxLqni6KuP_RpKSIrR-PfPjm5yzLYjjIylZtD7TRar8GH3uAA=>
waded in with his expert outlook. Even in Obama's big year of 2008,
Kucinich's support waned to 57%.

With Kucinich's preposterous past presidential runs, his proposal for a
federal Department of Peace, the non-recovery Recovery Summer and his
sidling up to Obama to vote on healthcare may come back to haunt him now
as seeming silliness in the face of real economic issues pressing in on
Cleveland's West Side families.

Now that the 2010 midterm campaign is nearly over, everyone is trying to
collect last-minute money, Barack and Michelle and Joe, even John
McCain, who doesn't need it to ensure another Senate term. Kucinich's
Thursday money plea seemed particularly plaintive: "Why You May Want to
Contribute Now."

"I cannot take this election for granted," Kucinich said. "We need
immediate help to raise the funds to spend for last-minute media buys to
make sure there is no question about the outcome. Please send a
contribution."

Re: [PDI] Forclosuregate: A Four-Course Primer To Understanding Organized Banking Crime In America

I received a contribution and a card through Gary & Nayana - Thank you all.
This has been about the hardest time in my life and it's been wonderful
having my Progressive friends be the MOST responsive and caring. It says a
lot about the kind of people Progressives are . . .
The ex's family are all Republican'ts and performing accordingly. They use
twisted language and such.
Back to politics - Do we want to test the waters to see if Progressive Dems
need an alternative to what the DuPage Dems are doing about Pollwatching?

Re: [PDI] Forclosuregate: A Four-Course Primer To Understanding Organized Banking Crime In America

Sorry I didn't make it last night. I got a call as I was getting ready with
the bad news that my ex was NOT going to share my son's ashes and had
already disposed of them . . .
PDI these days is languishing - they have only a small handful of people
attending meetings where the current political topics are discussed. The
mailing list is extensive and I'd encourage you to have a conversation with
Dan, unless you'd like me to get the ball rolling . . .

[PDI] Voter Registration results, Pollwatching, DAWN on the radio

Thank You !
Thanks to all of our voter registrars for all of their efforts this election cycle.
It's been fast, fun and good practice for the next time around!
We registered almost 300 people around and about in DuPage starting from the end of September and continuing until the very last day of open registration, Oct 5th.
We still need some pollwatchers, please email if you are interested. I can get your pollwatching supplies to you PDQ. Early voting has started already, and we have some credentials to monitor that process. Early voting is a good time to tell whether the touch screen machines have any glitches since they are used exclusively for early voting.
Thanks again, and I am supposed to be in the radio Wednesday on WDCB talking about pollwatching. Tune in, I give DAWN a nice plug.

Wednesday on WDCB
It'll air tomorrow during Daylight Edition 5 am and Final Edition 6 pm .
90.9 FM or www.wdcb.org<http://www.wdcb.org/>
Marsha and Pete register two friends at COD

We registered members of the COD Baseball team on Monday

No, they're not getting married, they're goofing around while they register to vote!
