    are going through that.  Are you in a "right to work" state by any chance?

    What the Republicans are doing in states like Ohio, North Carolina, and Wisconsin are the blue print for what they will do everywhere they hold power, in towns or in Congress.

    Last few years I've been tied up with taking care of the grand boys so their parents could work and go to school. That is easing up a bit as the grand boys get older so I may finally have the time to get more involved locally, as well as on the national level somehow.

    Need to be able to do both, that is certain.

      Thus, I bow against my will to Ray Kelly.

      And even here it is sickening to hear some of the crap you hear all the time on the national level!

        I think that is why it's so important to reach out to people locally as a means of going around them.

        We can do a great deal of good by getting the word out as to what is going on, especially if we target that information to people's specific interests.

        Far too often, people don't pay attention until things hit home, Climate Change for example.

        If we can get the information out that shows how they will be affected by a certain policy by making it personal, all the better.

        It hits home hard that way.
