DEMOCRATS Know How to Win Legislative Seats - Now Must Prove They Know How to Hold on to Them During an Election YearSubmitted by Sue Schell on Sun, 07/18/2010 - 5:52pm.

Word is out that if in November, the GOP can reclaim the House and/or Senate, GOP leader Boehner wants to repeal the new Wall Street reform laws . I was aghast when I first read this. I'm sorry, but I think it sounds a bit wild, if not irrational. Despite Wall Street plunging us into the worst recession since the Great Depression and unemployment over 10%, how is it that Boehner can have the arogance to think that the public doesn't like the new Wall Street Legislation. I, for one, really am very pleased with the law because it provides some regulatory safeguards to investors. Once again, Boehner has proven himself to be only concerned with protecting the Investment Houses and Banks, and not private investors,like you and me. The Bill, which Boehner is wanting to repeal, just days after its passage, is actually, the first new regulatory law to effect Wall Street since World War II. You see, not having enough regulations guiding our financial institutions, in part, is what led to the near collapse of our financial system. I'm sorry, but this whole experience has been, and remains, just too painful to let go of. How can we forget so quickly the Lehman Brothers demise. Or AIG's near collapse?
You can bet that I am going to begin to let everyone I know my political views on Boehner and the GOP because this kind of nonsense is the last thing America needs. I am urging everyone to make sure the REPUBS do not win back those House and/or Senate seats this Nov. I am planning to be as active as it will take to insure that we WIN every open seat. Also, I urge all of you , to get involved and stay involved in these races around our country because every single seat is important.
Because DEMS have proven that we do know how to win seats in Congress..., now, all we have to do is prove we know how to hold on to them.

Could there be an easier question to answer? I think not. Why peace of course! Moreover, not in 100 years as mentioned by Grandpa McCain. We need peace NOW!
In addition, here is the second thing we need. universal health insurance NOW!

Kind of hard to believe, but Ralph Nader can not just let it go. In hindsight, I suppose somebody, anybody should have been writing about this poor guy, who we all remember as, "The Spoiler" in 2000, just so he could feel a part of this election process. I mean - come on, to feel a part of the election process - do we all have to actually run for president? I don't think so! But then again, most of us have checked our egos in the ego checkroom and believe we can better serve our country by working for and voting for the most qualified candidate during these troubling times.

First, let me thank so many of you who have sent me emails and cards to wish me well. I truly appreciated reading your kind words because they were written with such caring warmth, that they profoundly touched me and for which I am thankful.
I wanted to fill everybody in on why The Hard Schell Report has not had any recent postings and why I’ve been essentially MIA. If you don’t really care, please just feel free to stop reading now.

Yahoo ! Did we ever hear some stimulating conversations at the Evanston Democratic Network monthly gathering Thurs. evening Aug.30. One new person attending the meeting commented that the group appeared to them as being very knowledgeable on the issues and problems confronting government officials in Congress as well as the ongoing problems and lies happening with the Iraq War. I agreed with her comments, saying that not only did we have a great group of activists, we also had a room full of smart people, which is what wins elections and what it will take to win the 08 election.

Hard to believe, but one whole month has past since the IL Kerry Travelers and Evanston Meetup people last met in July. Undoubtedly, everyone is feeling a little soggier and certainly no closer to the end of this disgusting war in Iraq than when last we were together.

The Evanston Democratic Network Meetup & IL Kerry Travelers had a great startup reunion get together last night after a long hiatus. We'reeeeeeee Back ! ! !
This was the first Evanston Network Meetup in quite some time and although there were only 16 people in attendance, that compared favorably to when we had five people for our first meeting in 04. Nevertheless, many people emailed to apologize for not being able to make it and wanted to stay in the loop for our future meetings.

Do you have family or friends in any of the following states Kentucky, New Hampshire or Maine? If so, let them know that last Tuesday night, their Republican Senators in the Senate had to pick a side: They were either with the American people or with President Bush.

Isn't it strange how in this day of Blue States vs. Red States, progressive vs. static and righteous vs. self-righteous, we are not happy unless we think our side is winning. For the sake of conversation, I will now proceed to label whom I had in mind when I made the above statement. The Red State of course refer to "winners" the Republicans and The Blue State refers to those long-suffering losers" the Democrats. The losers, I mean Democrats are often decried for their Liberalism while the Republicans tend to be proud of their "same-old, same-old”, way of doing business, it kind of makes them feel more reliable I guess.
