0 Comment

A bunch of Senate and Governor’s races coming down to the wire – make sure you vote! Christie is a jerk; young people agree with Democrats; immigration reform; and a nice reference to the DPVA press release re taxes and the GOP candidate in 10th District race. read more →

I get these weekly and try to post them, but I got behind, and frankly I’ve been spending more time on Twitter (@DemRulz) or Facebook (Frank Leone) than on this blog, so here is an archives of the ones from the last few months I haven’t posted (except October 3, which I apparently never received).  I’ll try to do better going forward. Today’s Update (Oct. 24, 2014) features the shootings in Canada, Obama’s campaigning, and dumb stuff GOP Presidential candidates Christie, Paul, and Pence say or do.                read more →

For the third straight year, I was able to enjoy my birthday with the the Democratic National Committee as it met in Atlanta for three very hot and humid days (August 21-23).  The word of the meeting was “turnout” as Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz gave a great speech and the various caucus and councils discussed ways to get out the Democratic vote and win on November 4, 2014 (about 70 days from today) [one thing I learned is most people don’t know the date of the election.  So tell them.] .. read more →
