Rock’n’Register is Saturday!

Posted by Annie on September 9, 2008

If you’re looking for something to do on Saturday, September 13th between the hours of 2:00 and 10:00, check out Rock’n’Register at Harford Community College.  It’s an all-ages battle of the bands show, costs $6 in advance and $8 at the door (all money after cost goes to a local non-profit), and you’ll get to hear some good local music.  Plus you can vote for your favorite band, as well as for the non-profit that should receive the money, on a voting machine from the Harford County Board of Elections.  There will be political organizations, candidates, and an opportunity to register to vote.  Click here for more information.

The conservative media

Posted by Annie on September 5, 2008

Ever feel like you’re the only person noticing the double talk coming from the mouths of Karl Rove, Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Dick Morris and the like?  You’re not…John Stewart notices!  This clip shows statements by all of the above and how wildly they change when they’re talking about a Republican candidate or issue.  It’s incredible…sadly it’s something the mainstream “liberal” media would never call them out on. 

You can read an article about this and watch the Daily Show clip here courtesy of the Huffington Post.  Or click here to view the official Comedy Central clip (with commercial).

Also, from the Harford for Obama campaign:

“There is a registration drive planned for Edgewood, Woodbridge Center, 1400 block Pulaski Hwy (Rte 40) for Saturday August 23rd. As you know voter’s registration is very important to a successful outcome during an election and this is a crucial time and there is much at stake. Therefore, we must make every effort to increase the number of registered voters and thereby increase voter turnout. You will be canvassing with the New Harford Democratic Club and Young Democrats and should assemble at 9:30am. Look for the truck with the Obama Signs.”

***Please meet in the parking lot at ADVANCE AUTO, 1401 Pulaski Hwy.

OCS Oil Drilling: The WRONG Approach

Posted by piperj3cub on July 15, 2008

The Democrats in Congress can go a long way at this point in time towards renewing my personal faith in the party… by NOT responding to Bush’s obnoxious tactic to try and open vast regions of the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) to oil drilling.  Drilling in the regions of the OCS currently off-limits will have NO short-term impact on fuel prices (it could be argued that the speculation of future supplies may reduce the price of oil by a small amount, but in reality over the past 50 years any increase in domestic production has had little to no impact on the price of gasoline; these data are available from multiple government and industry sources).  Expanding regions of the OCS open for future drilling WILL however allow many cronies of the president to make millions of dollars, if not billions, by domestic exploration alone, much less actual drilling (remember that much of both Bush’s and Cheney’s stock portfolios are involved with corporations that specialize in oil exploration and extraction).

 

Still… the entire reasoning behind the president’s decision to ‘open’ the OCS for expanded research and drilling is the reduction of gasoline prices.  I say again that this legislation will have NO IMPACT on fuel prices.  So, why will the Democrats in congress support it?  It is getting increasingly bothersome to me that the Democratic Party is so willing to legislate rather than educate; our party’s position over the past decades on this issue has been the correct one!  We need to be telling America why we are correct, not change our policy because we think this will work against Obama in the presidential campaign.  The position of environmental protection is not a bad one.  In addition, if we want to truly impact fuel prices, we would be supporting increased economy standards for automobiles, and an overall energy-efficient economy.  The slight increase in future supply of oil will have a minimal impact on fuel prices compared to the almost instantaneous impact that higher fuel efficiency standards would have on demand.  Wake up Democratic Party… DO THE CORRECT THING!

March meeting

Posted by Annie on March 5, 2008

Just wanted to post a reminder that our next meeting will be at 6:30 on March 19th at Sean Bolan’s, the best restaurant in Bel Air.  We had a lively meeting in February with some new faces (who brought great ideas and energy), so come join us!  I’m sure we’ll have an interesting discussion about the yet-to-be-determined Democratic candidate…
