Defund the F-35 now

The F-35 joint strike fighter, which we have affectionately named the “Fiasco 35,” has been a disaster since production began in 2001. Twelve years later, the costliest weapons system and the single most expensive item in the 2013 Pentagon budget has yet to fly a single combat mission.

The F-35 program has been plagued by cost overruns and delays, has been grounded twice, does little to address 21st century threats and is still nowhere near completion. Tell Congress: stop funding the F-35 fighter jet program now.

Much belated Valentines wishes

Hope that you enjoy this bit of verse. Be sure and pass the hugs around!

I love you!, some verse by Michael L. Love

Love, I am in a love lockdown.
It's love hate.
I say love you, not boy love.
I am fated to love you.
I want to say I love her.
I want to be your love guru, bad love.
Don't hate that I love you.
Don't say that I love money.
I want to play a lady gaga love game to you,
and say love sayings to you.
I will send you a love sms,
so that you will know that it is pure love.
I want to be in your love horoscope.
You have me in a love lock down.
It's not guy love.
It's not dvd love.
I want your love today.
Let's ride the rock of love bus.
It's not love and hate.
Be my computer love.
I love money 2.
Be in my love horoscopes.
We will be famous love,
and a love saying,
and cute love quotes,
love etc.
I'm in a love lock down.
It's skinny love.
It's your birthday love.
We will write the love definition,
and famous love quotes,
and sayings.

It's not love vs money,
or sad love quotes.
We should be the definition of love,
and famous love quotes.
You are my rock of love.
I love saying I love you,
but it is unrequited love,
bon iver skinny love,
e cards love.
We were love 2007,
and love inc,
and love shayari.
It was funny love quotes,
the dream of love vs money.
You are on my bratz love meter.
This is a real chance at love,
ashley rock of love,
and famous love poems.
I mean inspirational love,
the love letters of great men,
not love dvds,
or love ecards,
or love my flash.
We had sayings about love,
taya rock of love.
Write love poems for her,
and love sonnets.
It's valentines day love.
We need a free love calculator,
and a real chance of love girls.
To love and die,
for love 21,
is a free love test.

Write love poems for the one you love,
and you will need a true love calculator,
not an online love calculator,
to calculate your love.

Get me to the love calculator.

Keep GE Salmon Off Our Tables

Keep GE Salmon Off Our Tables: Tell Supermarkets, Food Companies, and Seafood Restaurants to Reject GE Salmon!


Center for Food Safety (CFS), along with Friends of the Earth and a coalition of thirty consumer, food safety, fishing, environmental, sustainable agriculture, parent, public health and animal welfare organizations, have launched a national Campaign for GE-Free Seafood. Over the last month, we’ve sent letters to the nation’s top grocery stores, seafood companies, and seafood restaurants asking them to commit to not sell genetically engineered fish should it come to market.

Some of the biggest grocery stores in the U.S. have already replied, stating that they will not sell genetically engineered salmon in their stores, including: Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Marsh Supermarkets, Aldi, and PCC Natural Markets! Additionally, over 200 chefs and restaurants have signed CFS’s Pledge for GE-Free Fish stating that they will not intentionally purchase, sell, or serve genetically engineered salmon in their restaurants. Together, these supermarkets and restaurants are showing that they care about consumers and sustainable fisheries. But there are a lot more companies yet to sign!

Since the FDA has stated that it will likely not require GE fish to be labeled, consumers will have no way of avoiding the fish at the market unless companies make clear to consumers where they stand on the issue.

Help urge these companies to take a position rejecting GE salmon!


CISPA is Back


CISPA is back, and we need Obama to stand up for privacy by pledging to veto it.

Click here to tell Obama to veto CISPA:

Last year, our collective efforts helped put a stop to one of the gravest threats to online privacy and internet freedom we have ever seen -- The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act.

The bill grants companies unprecedented power to obtain users' personal information (such as from private communications) and to disclose that data to the government without a warrant -- including sending data to the National Security Agency. Earlier this year CISPA was reintroduced in the House of Representatives. Last year Obama pledged to veto CIPSA -- we need him to do so again.

The new bill has the very same dangerous problems as last year's version. CISPA 2.0 would grant immunity to private companies who share your data with other companies, private agencies, and the government. And CISPA permits the use of your personal data for reasons completely unrelated to cybersecurity. Now, as before, we cannot sacrifice our hard-won liberties and privacy rights in the pursuit of a misguided and overbroad conception of "security." We need your help.

Here is my message to #Maryland state government. - #nra #tcot #gunrights #guncontrol #2a #tgdn #molonlabe

I'm opposed to all current gun control proposals. Please support the
2nd amendment. Gun bans, background checks, and registries are not the
answer, and they fail the intent of the 2nd amendment.

It is unfortunate that Maryland is considering such stringent
proposals, since the state will bear the brunt of legal challenges to
unconstitutional laws. Hasn't Maryland had enough of such shenanigans.
It is a waste of our tax dollars.

Mental health provisions are dangerous for many reasons, but foremost
that people will avoid treatment to retain their rights, and legal
challenges will be unlikely due to the injustice of mental illness
stigma. Legislators should not dragnet the mental health of our

Gun ban restrictions are ridiculous and unreasoned, because they will
not prevent any crime or act of violence. It is really absurd. Our
rights should not be challenged in the pursuit of hysterical agendas
and slim temporary majorities. The cost is too high.

Stand with Rep. Barbara Lee, and stand up for diplomacy with Iran

Dear Friend,

After more than a decade of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, many members of
Congress are trying to force us into a war with Iran.

Fear-mongering and propaganda aside, Iran is not an imminent threat to the
United States -- and we haven't yet exhausted all avenues for diplomacy to
ensure Iran does not acquire a nuclear weapon.

But as a result of the Iranian Revolution over 30 years ago, current law
makes it very difficult for American diplomats to talk directly to
representatives of the Iranian government.

That is why Congresswoman Barbara Lee has introduced legislation that, in
her words, "would require President Obama to appoint a high level Special
Envoy to Iran to engage in sustained, comprehensive negotiations to ensure
that Iran does not acquire nuclear weapons."

Sign the petition. Tell your member of Congress to co-sponsor Rep. Lee's
bill to avoid an unnecessary and costly war with Iran. Just click the link

Tell John Kerry: Limit Greenhouse Gas Pollution From Aviation Now

More efficient airplanes and new technologies to reduce greenhouse gas pollution from airplanes are available. But the airline industry and the U.S. State Department have been blocking international proposals to reduce greenhouse gas pollution from aviation as the climate crisis continues to worsen.

Last year the industry even got Congress to pass legislation which would allow U.S. airlines to ignore the European Union's new rules to reduce aviation emissions. The result: The EU program was suspended for one year to allow for an international body to put together an agreement to reduce global emissions from the sector.

Now we need to make sure our new secretary of state hears from us: The aviation sector should not be exempted from reducing their emissions. We need a binding international agreement to dramatically reduce greenhouse gas pollution from aviation now.

45 days to tell Pres. Obama to reject #Keystone XL #nokxl

Dear Friend,

On Friday, the State Department launched a 45 day public comment period on
their latest sham review of the Keystone XL Pipeline.

The clock is now ticking on what will likely be our last chance to
officially weigh in on the "game over for the climate" tar sands pipeline,
before the President makes his decision later this year.

The recently released Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement
that is the subject of these comments is a cynical sham that ignores the
pipeline's significant risks.

We need a response that will make clear to the Obama administration that
Americans oppose the Keystone XL pipeline. Please join me in urging
President Obama to stop the sham reviews and reject Keystone XL:

Tell Your Senators to Reject Keystone XL Now

The U.S. Senate could vote as early as Tuesday to force President Obama to build the disastrous Keystone XL pipeline.

We urgently need your help to make sure that doesn’t happen.

The 1,700-mile pipeline would, every day, carry up to 35 million gallons of oil strip-mined from Canada’s “tar sands” -- some of the dirtiest, most climate-hostile fuels on the planet. One leading climate scientist says Keystone XL will be “game over” for our ability to avoid a climate catastrophe.

It would also cut through rivers, streams, and wildlife habitat for at least 20 imperiled species, including whooping cranes and pallid sturgeon.

If we’re going to stop Keystone XL in its tracks, we need to show massive opposition. Right now that means calling on your senators to reject an amendment that cuts the public out of the process and immediately allows Keystone XL to move forward.
Keystone XL is not worth the staggering risks to people, wildlife and a healthy climate.

Tell Eric Holder: Nobody is above the law

Dear Friend,

Not one of the Wall Street crooks who drove our economy off a cliff has
gone to jail. And now we know why.

For the country's top law enforcement official, Attorney General Eric
Holder, "too big to fail" has now become "too big to jail."

Shockingly, Attorney General Holder recently admitted as much, saying:

"I am concerned that the size of some of these institutions becomes so
large that it does become difficult for us to prosecute them when we are
hit with indications that if you do prosecute, if you do bring a criminal
charge, it will have a negative impact on the national economy, perhaps
even the world economy."

Nobody in our country is above the law. But apparently Attorney General
Holder has lost sight of that.

Tell Attorney General Holder: "It's your job to prosecute criminals. If
you can't bring yourself to prosecute Wall Street crooks, you should

Your last order

Dear friend,

The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, or CISPA, is a proposed law that would give companies unprecedented power to hand your personal information from the internet, including from private communications, over to government agencies without a warrant.

When CISPA first showed up last year, we successfully defeated it together--so we need to remind President Obama about this dangerous threat to our personal privacy.

I just signed a petition calling on President Obama to tell Congress he intends to veto CISPA. Will you join me?

Thank Bradley Manning

Bradley Manning has pleaded guilty to actions that fulfilled his moral obligations, and for which he has our gratitude. Let's thank him.

Label genetically engineered food? Absolutely.

People across the country are working hard to pass GE labeling laws, and a federal bill is in the works. But corporations like Monsanto are working just as hard to block each and every initiative.

Will you join me in taking a stand to label GE food? We have a right to know what we're eating, and how it's been grown.
