Hey nice blog.

I was surfing the net, the other day, for a cheap and reliable internet phone service (Voip) and came across one that is cheaper than Vonage and just as good.

Anyone interested can check them out at Via Talk .

More than 120 groups cosponsored the rally held today (March 24), hosted by the same group at Essex County College in Newark. The Peace and Justice Coalition is on the move!

CLINTON CAMP SMEARS OBAMA, NOW SHE SOUNDS HOLLOW !


CHALLENGE TO STUDENTS: Any advice or assistance in marketing this book would be
greatly appreciated. Supports Obama/Edwards.



OBAMA 4 PRESIDENT:



OBAMA FOR CHANGE.(WE INSTEAD OF ME)



ETHICS, INTEGRITY, MORALITY,TRUTH, AND INTELLIGENCE, THAT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE !!



Even though the dear Clintons are running such

a negative campaign, attacking Obama, and

started the race issues.Smearing Obama's character on the internet

I don't think we should make sexist comments in our support for Obama--

Hillary is very dislikable, but not because she is a woman-- because she is

thoroughly complicit in the war machine,
she sucks up to Israel, and she doesn't have a sincere bone in her body.
I hope the voters are not as polarized in their

thinking, and will vote for change by electing

Obama as our next president.

I would like to see a ticket of Obama / Edwards.



Regardless: Honesty is something the American

people would appreciate having at our capital.



The history of George Bush and William Clinton

is on record. Lies and cover-up. Why would anyone

want to go back, or would believe anything

they might propose in the future.

We want new dirrection. A change in over-sight.

Someone representing us, the American people.

That is Obama, and Edwards.





Take our country back. Our government is no longer for sale. Foreign and Corporate lobbies have bought officials in Washington DC, for the last time. Why we need change can be found by examining the hypocrisy in government leadership for several years. From the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on.Read the following book for details. You will understand we need Obama for 2008 and beyond. Our Foreign Policy is the core of destruction of all other issues facing America. Not only change in executive, but also the legislative (congress) so influenced by special interest, instead of the people of America



Who, What, Where, When & Why--Wake-up !!
