Big Dan's Big News July 28, 2008

(click to enlarge electoral map)

The public opinion experts who run states with 284 electoral college votes - 14 more than the 270 needed to win - lean to or firmly support Barack Obama; states with 147 lean toward or are in John McCain's camp; and 10 states with 107 electoral votes are tossups. In other words, the site suggests that Obama does not need to win a single tossup state -- Colorado, Missouri, Florida, Virginia, Arizona, Nevada, Montana, North Dakota, North Carolina or Indiana -- to take the oath of office on January 20, 2009.

Hillary Clinton sounding the alarm on the Bush administration's ploy to undermine women's rights...again...

The Bush administration is up to its old tricks again, quietly putting ideology before science and women's health. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is poised to put in place new barriers to accessing common forms of contraception like birth control pills, emergency contraception and IUDs by labeling them "abortion." These proposed regulations set to be released next week will allow health care providers to refuse to provide contraception to women who need it. We can't let them get away with this underhanded move to undermine women's health and that's why I am sounding the alarm.

Are Hackett & Barletta dodging birth control issues? Where do they stand on birth control issues and womens' rights issues?

Attention NEPA voters: We must have an answer on how local Republicans Hackett and Barletta stand on BIRTH CONTROL and ROE VS. WADE! Chris Hackettt has a lot of vague or non-existent answers to those questions on his website!

From Chris Hackett's website:

Hackett: "Protect innocent life. (bd: Except the innocent life of Iraqi and Afganistan civilians...90% of the people we kill over there in the war that Hackett is for, are civilians...IE: "innocent live". See? "Pro-life" to Republicans is "negotiable"...)"

Hackett: "As a person of faith and a father of four children, I recognize that all human life is sacred and created in God's image (bd: As usual, protecting life is "negotiable" with so-called "conservatives". The lives of Iraqi and Afghanistan civilians have less meaning.). I am pro-life and I will work to foster respect for the life of unborn children in every way that I can (bd: Interpretation: wants to overturn Roe vs. Wade). My wife and I are also adoptive parents and we have first-hand knowledge of the burdens that government places on those who seek to promote life in this way (bd: I have no idea what that sentence means.). As we work to discourage and eliminate abortions (bd: overturning Roe vs. Wade???), it is so important that our laws encourage adoptions and I will work to do that in Congress (bd: Get ready to adopt several million Iraqi orphans that the U.S. govt created! Or do you just mean adopt American babies?). "

Hackett: "Support traditional family values.
Beyond the sound bites that are used to divide us, there are values many of us share: family as the central institution of society; church and community as the conduit for good works (bd: I don't go to church, and I believe in separation of church & state, and that's what the constitution says.). I will continue to support family values by:

● Fostering parental involvement in our children's education through choice. (bd: Can you be a little more specific? Does that mean "school choice"? And what about students leaving college with $100,000.00 worth of student loans? I can't find anything on this OR birth control on Hackett's site.)
● Defending traditional marriage defined as between a man and a woman. (bd: What business is it of YOURS or MINE, if two gay people get married? None of your fucking business, Hackett! I've been married for 25 years, and I don't need fucking Chris Hackett to defend my marriage! Get lost!)
● Promoting adoption over abortion. (bd: Are you for overturning Roe vs. Wade, YES or NO??? Sounds like YES!)
● Respecting individual rights. (bd: Like the right to choose without having big government choose for you! How about the individual right to take drugs?)"

bd: I won't vote for a guy who's website looks more like he's running for the priesthood than someone who's going to tackle issues like the health care crisis. He says the "free market" will bring down health care prices. Isn't health care "free market" right now? He says "the last thing we need is socialized medicine." That's EXACTLY what we need! So Hackett is "OUT"! I want socialized/universal health care for all! 50 million Americans have no health insurance and 18,000 Americans a year die because of this: that's SIX 9/11's per year! 3,000 Americans died on 9/11! Health care is the biggest "terrorist"! Year in and year out, too! Not a one-shot deal like 9/11! Notice Republicans never bring up the 50 million Americans who don't have health insurance? They don't care about them! Every time I see a fundraiser for someone in our local papers, that is a reminder that we need universal health care for all, like every industrialized nation on the face of the earth, except the United States! What do you think the 50 million Americans without health insurance want? What do you think the health care that veterans and the elderly and the politicians get? SOCIALIZED!!! THAT'S WHAT I WANT, TOO!!! I'll check out Barletta's website more in depth later this week. But Hackett looks like a "hack" to me. More of the same old GOP/Bush talking points: gay marriage, abortion, and terror terror terror!!! And we can see what the "free market" did for health care prices and the foreclosure crisis! No thanks, Chris! You should've ran for office in the 80's, you missed the boat with today's issues!

Will Hackett and Barletta act like McCain in the following video, when asked these same questions about birth control??? The big secret is the Republicans aren't just against the right to choose, they're against birth control! Think about THAT when you want to plan your family, when YOU want to choose when the time is right to have children!


We read many an article on the world-wide web about mysterious cabals and individuals of prominence who are accused, singly and collectively of being the cause of the calamity, chaos and fear of these dark times. We hear about neo-cons and ZioNazis. We hear about Bilderberger and The Council on Foreign Relations. We hear about Bohemian Grove and ‘The City’ in London. We hear about bankers, bureaucrats and military industrial complexes. It is a sure thing that they all contribute to these conditions and that self-interest is the primary motive but… there is one thing that is most responsible for maintaining ‘the lie’ and for promoting the problems in this world than any single entity or collective. That thing is The Media. Your hard work has resulted in Congress cracking open the door to impeachment, justice, and peace. How can you keep it open?
