The Republicans are dead!
A truly great, Lincolnesque victory speech to a crowd of of 10k campaign workers who had to spend at least 20 hours knocking on doors. We should all hope that Republicans come to their senses and work to ensure health care, cuts in the military and a way to stop the interest on the national debt from going nuclear.
In the words of Bush after his re-election: "I have earned political capital and i intend to use it."
Bring it Mr. Obama!
Congratulations to the President: may he enjoy a successful second term. Thank you all, especially the women voters, for supporting Barack Obama and surviving the barrage of negative advertising aka Rove and the Koch brothers.
Washington and Colorado passed initiatives legalizing the recreational use of marijuana: wonder how long it will take Kansas to step in that direction??
and in the spirit of reaching across party lines, may some healing vibes and quality organic salve be applied to romney's booty for the severe spanking he received from his home state of massachusetts............ouch!

Will make a huge difference all around the world from Dubai to Mumbai to Shanghai. Like it or not you're a citizen of the Empire with all the rights and responsibilities.
Jerry didn't give it any energy.
Phil & Bob helped Obama four years ago.
The Grateful Dead/Rex/Furthur support(ed) progressive policies that come from people like Barak Obama. I hate to sound pedantic, but this is the most important election until a progressive third party breaks through.
Although the popular vote will be very close the Democratic "Get-Out-The-Vote" operation will be blistering and Obama has a n 86% chance of winning the eletoral vote. The Romulans and Republicans in general lied and lied and lied and attacked women's reproductive rights, among every other decent thing under the sun.
After a ton of hard work we should be all raising a glass of champagne to 4 more years of progressive policies. Many thanks to Bruce Springsteen for his efforts in support of the president!
The Northeastern portion of the US as well as the Appalachian Mountain chain, the Hatteras shoreline to the North Shore of Boston and 22 foot waves pounding onshore at Lake Michigan (Chicago) and Lake Eerie (Cleveland) provided the rough proportions of a massive collision of two storms with a very low barometric pressure center (a record in fact) of 940 millibars. Hundreds of homes burned to the ground and and about 500 died. The price tag for damage? The second highest in history.
It is clear that this combined monster, along with the heat of the summer drought, signaled the full onslaught of global warming. Just as clear is that people and politicians (including the presidential candidates) are in full denial of the real damages yet to be felt.
If you live in a home that has no propane or oil heat, it will be uninhabitable when the grid goes out (predicted by cyber attack or otherwise). Unimaginable food and energy prices increases signal just a few of the severest effects.
I'm not trying to scare anybody, just saying that I'm making plans for this stark future that include a self-contained tiny house with generator. In the long run of a worst case scenario even this will not be enough.
Hope some East Coast Heads out there find this post. Would love to see you so we can dance and shake our bones one more time... Will be sipping some sweet tunes into the night and groovin' in this massive dance space just like old times... Here are some details...

Cartels are fighting it out in jet-set destination Acapulco, Mexico while opium production is up 17.6% in the world-leading producer country Burma. Perhaps that is why Ang Sang Su Kyi gets her cosmetic freedom. Afghanistan is the #2 producer in the world, just waiting for the US exit in 2014 to retake the lead.
I'm surprised I haven't read any accounts of baseball fans celebrating the sweep of the Tigers by the San Francisco Giants Sunday evening! Congratulations and hope the parade is fun, too.
