  2. We enjoy these unique double sided stand up pewter Christmas ornaments because you don't need to hang them on anything. They are thin, but have a flat base so you can rest them pretty much anywhere... And they're made in the USA!

  9. June 11-13 Creating "The Caring Society": A Progressive Alternative to Tea Party Extremism and Corporate Domination of American Politics and Culture Be on the GROUND FLOOR of developing A STRATEGY FOR PROGRESSIVES in the Obama Years. Support Obama to BE the President Americans Thought They Were Voting For & Resist the Corporate Takeover of America: A Unique Strategy Conference Bringing together Religious and Spiritual Progressives with Secular Liberals and Progressives in the Age of Obama to explore strategies appropriate for the complexities of a period in which the failures of the Democrats to present a coherent progressive vision and program has created the space for the rise of a quasi-fascist and racist movement on the Right that threatens to move all of American political discourse in violent and destructive ways, and simultaneously to strengthen corporate dominance. We will address strategy both in response to the immediate crisis of 2010, and also in regard to building a long-term vision of the economic, spiritual, and ethical dimensions of a democratic society that could re-inspire people to fight for fundamental changes and societal transformation beyond the limits of "inside-the-beltway pragmatism" and "being realistic" in terms set by the corporate media. Foci of the conference: A. CORPORATIONS ARE NOT PERSONS AND SHOULD NOT HAVE SAME RIGHTS AS PERSONS B. ENVIRONMENTAL & SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY AMENDMENT C. GLOBAL MARSHALL PLAN AS A WAY TO END THE WAR ON TERROR AND REPLACE IT WITH A STRATEGY OF GENEROSITY Speakers, Presenters and Workshop Leaders include: Congressmen Keith Ellison and Dennis Kucinich, Rev. Brian McLaren, Sister Joan Chittister,Bill McKibben, Rabbi Michael Lerner, Sharon Welch, Peter Gabel, Rev. James Winkler, Heather Booth, Rev. Conrad Braaten, John Dear S.J., Rev. Graylan Hagler, Rabbi Arthur Waskow, David Korten, Jonathan Granoff, Robert Thurman, Marianne Williamson, Jeremy Ben Ami, Paul Wapner, Svi Shapiro, Josh Weiner, Bob McChesney, John Nichols, Sheri Shapiro, Medea Benjamin, Rev. James Forbes, Lester Brown, Bill Moyer, John Cavanagh, Rob Weissman, Drew Dellinger, Nanette Schorr, Kim Wright, Cheryl Conner, Rebecca Subar, Rabbi Arik Ascherman, Gershon Baskin, Emma's Revolution, Rabbi David Schneyer, and more The San Francisco conference sold out in advance, and that may be true of the D.C. conference which has even less space--so register soon!

    Father's Day

    Father's Day: * A young son's interpretation: It's just like Mother's Day only you don't spend so much. * A father is a guy who has snapshots in his wallet where his money used to be. * A truly rich man is one whose children run into his arms when his hands are empty. * Sometimes the poorest man leaves his children the richest inheritance. * Any man can be a Father but it takes someone special to be a dad. * Fifth Commandment: Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee. Please ad any of your favorite sayings for Dad on Father's day.

  12. Listen to the lyrics of this Beatles redo "Cant Afford To Drive My Car"
  13. It used to be so easy. All you had to do was to just look at the label.
  14. You are a true Patriot Luke. We should all be as ready as you are to help our fellow Americans work together, and build a better future for all. The way I see it, America IS a Union! And every citizen has a responsibility to at very least remember that! I've never been involved with a union, but that doesn't make me any less Patriotic. Lets work together America. Indivisibly for US.
  15. Years ago the simplest of house-hold products had no planned obsolescence. People cleaned things when they got dirty, instead of trashing it and buying a new one, of whatever, without realizing that the new replacement item is actually a “consumable” with a life-span, rather than a "durable-good" designed to last. Cheap stuff never lasts as long as you needed it to, and once broken, can’t be fixed. The term “durable goods” suggests “worth fixing”. Quality products, not only last as long as you need them to last, they often are intended to be periodically maintained. This in turn creates local service industry jobs, and gives consumers the opportunity to conserve their family’s wealth by not having to replace everything. Some things do wear-out and need to get replaced, but somehow we become bored with the “old”, and the Jones family next door has the newest one, so we feel compelled socially to own only new stuff. That might be ok, if the money looped back through our economy instead of being funneled strait out. Buy only products made in The U.S.A. and pray that it is not too late.
