Obama Message for Today

OFACA MESSAGE OF THE DAY – A Clear Choice in November


President Obama won enough delegates yesterday to secure the Democratic nomination. In the past year, the campaign has built the largest and strongest grassroots campaign in American history. Our staff and volunteers are organizing across the country, talking to their family, friends, neighbors and co-workers about what?s at stake in this election.?Now that the Republicans have finally settled on Mitt Romney, voters will face a very clear choice this November.


President Obama is fighting for an economy built to last and restoring economic security for the middle class. He?s rebuilding the economy on a foundation of the fundamental values that made America great ? values like fairness and opportunity. He believes in the simple idea that America prospers when we’re all in it together ? when hard work pays off, responsibility is rewarded, and everybody has a fair shot, does their fair share and plays by the same rules.


Mitt Romney has a different vision. Instead of asking everyone to do their fair share and making investments we need for an economy built to last, Romney would slash taxes for corporations and the wealthiest Americans, let Wall Street once again write its own rules, and balance the budget on the backs of the middle class.


Romney?s policies are no better than his record. Romney supports the Ryan budget plan, which would end Medicare as we know it to pay for tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires. Romney?s own budget plan would increase the deficit by $5 billion over the next decade and pass on that debt to the next generation.

Words of Wisdom from Ken Knox

  • Ken Knox

    I believe happiness is an unrealistic goal, as it is fleeting and not sustainable. No feeling is. Life won’t always feel good. Sometimes we will be sad or feel down. That is simply a fact of being human. As my friend Kevin J. Thornton says,?”Happiness is for house cats.” I believe a far more realistic–not to mention attainable–goal is FULFILLMENT. You may not be happy, but you can be fulfilled. To me, that’s a far more realized life anyway. Sometimes we won’t know happiness until we’ve truly allowed ourselves to experience our sadness.
  • Larry Geller?I was complimenting your writing abilities you stinking whore 🙂

    You also get to meet people where they are. Those who are insightful and evolved can also be so to a fault, meaning it’s easy to judge and dismiss others who may not have the same insight. It takes humility and compassion to allow others to?stumble in life even as we hold them to our standards. No one is perfect, and we will all mess up and sell out to our history at some point. Again, part of being human. I often have to remind myself that just because I have certain insights into life, I’m no better than a homeless slacker who keeps letting his past failures dictate his behavior. I’ve done that too. I am still learning and growing, and I’m just as imperfect as anyone else. 😉
  • Larry Geller?Ditto…but you still are a stinking whore. Get back to Slammers 🙂
  • Ken Knox?No, I don’t take money, so that makes me a slut. Not a whore. And it Slammer, not Slammers, you backwoods hillbilly. 😉
  • Larry Geller?Sadly I see people ruin themselves even with something like tobacco. I did it for years.
  • Larry Geller?Guilty: I am from Missouri after all.

    Shit, I’ve done buttloads of drugs and drank myself into a stupor more than a few times. A lot of us have. So we get to empathize with those who still do and call them forth into living a more balanced and healthy life, but you can only do?that by truly CARING about them. People won’t listen to you if they think you are criticizing or judging them. They’ll only do it more to spite you. Just so they can feel righteous in THEIR way. So you gotta roll up your sleeves and be willing to go deep with people and find out what kind of life they really want for themselves, then support them in creating it. Sadly, too many people say, “I don’t have the time for that” or “It’s not my problem.” Which only continues perpetuating the cycle. Like Dr. Seuss said, “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” 😉
