HRC’s kick a$$ closing!! & a Happy 88th

I absolf*&^8inglutely love Hillary’s closing reference to Harriet Tubman. Text of Hillary’s speech.(emphasis mine)

“By following the example of a brave New Yorker , a woman who risked her life to shepherd slaves along the Underground Railroad. And on that path to freedom, Harriett Tubman had one piece of advice.

If you hear the dogs, keep going.

If you see the torches in the woods, keep going.

If they’re shouting after you, keep going.

Don’t ever stop. Keep going.

If you want a taste of freedom, keep going………….

But remember, before we can keep going, we have to get going by electing Barack Obama president.

We don’t have a moment to lose or a vote to spare. Nothing less than the fate of our nation and the future of our children hang in the balance………

I had to go google a more exact quote (from Digital History)

The expedition was governed by the strictest rules. If any man gave out, he must be shot. “Would you really do that?” she was asked. “Yes,” she replied, “if he was weak enough to give out, he’d be weak enough to betray us all, and all who had helped us; and do you think I’d let so many die just for one coward man.”

If that reference is not a solid answer to who Hillary supporters should be voting for than I don’t know what is. Mebbe…. I’m gonna kill you with my bare hands if you vote for McCain? TeeHee.

Happy 88th Anniversary!!! Thank You Rose Winslow

an FYI from NWHP

Women Won the Right to Vote

August 26th – Women’s Equality Day
In 1920, women won a 72-year political campaign that began at Seneca Falls in 1848. Ratified on August 26th, the 19th Amendment, the Woman Suffrage Amendment to the United States Constitution secured full voting rights for women.

In 1971, Representative Bella Abzug was able to get a Congressional Resolution passed that designated August 26th as Women’s Equality Day to commemorate the passage of the 19th Amendment, the Woman Suffrage Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

    I liked her speech, and thought that she did what people needed her to do. I think she will be back- this is far from the end for her!

    Nice to meet you.
