Don't fence me in.

'Oh, give me land, lots of land under starry skies above,
Don't fence me in.
Let me ride through the wide open country that I love,
Don't fence me in.
Let me be by myself in the evenin' breeze,
listen to the murmur of the cottonwood trees,
Send me off forever but I ask you please,
Don't fence me in.'

Or other's out, for that matter.

Democracy Now! covers Green Politics

In this Democracy Now! segment Amy Goodman talks to Green Party candidates Howie Hawkins (US Senate, NY) and Michael Berg (US Congress DE) about access to the debates. It seems Berg took the lead of our own Doug Campbell and attempted to crash a debate, only to be escorted out of the event. I hope no ribs were broken this time. She also talks with Aaron Dixon (US Senate WA), who was arrested when he tried to participate in a debate. He goes on to say he was offered bribes to withdraw from the race. I wonder if that's what went on in Connecticut.

Another article in the AAN explains why the writer will not vote for Debbie Stabenow but instead vote Green!

Sorry, wrong number.

Candidate may have misdialed phone sex.

Yeah, right.

Meet the Candidates Night in Detroit on Tuesday

Meet the Candidates Night

When: Oct. 17, 2006, 7:30 PM
Where: The Innate Healing Center
18700 Woodward Ave

The Innate Healing Center is located on
the East side of Woodward, across from the park,

It is a cross-roads center
with a vegetarian restaurant, and
lots of activities going on all the time:
drum circle twice weekly: Wed. and Sat. nights
open mic night: Thursday.

A probable issue list was compiled including the following:
* The quagmire that is Iraq and the upcoming horror that is Iran and the impact of US military actions on local public budgets and living standards
* The jobs crisis in our state and localities, the pensions crisis, what happened to the social safety net and how to regain it.
* The health care crisis and how the Michigan Constitution and public law mandate a solution to make affordable health care available to all segments of the population
* Electoral reforms that are necessary and that should already have been put into effect by the SOS
* The energy crisis and how Michigan could become a leader in renewable energy
* How public transportation could be re-established.
* How civil rights law could be amended to guarantee such rights to the LGBT community

But, of course, you can talk about whatever issues you feel best sustain your campaign
