It Is Time For A Revolution Of Massive Participation

Last year I started putting together this new non-profit called Vote On Purpose.  The truth is it is called Vote On Purpose because it was one of the few names involving voting that I could think of that I could actually buy a domain name for (have you ever tried this?).  And after I started inviting people to be on the board of directors, they found the name fitting so it stuck.

Crowdfunding. Has anyone done it?

I was curious if anyone here has had any experience crowdfunding a project?  I was hoping I could get some first hand accounts from people I am acquainted with.

Have a project going into launch Monday and if it fails it will only be because we didin't learn enough to make it work.  

I kind of remember that there was some but it's been a while.  

If you have experience, I would love to hear from you.

Republicans Are Stealing The Election!

Many people feel encouraged by Governor Romney's pick of Paul Ryan.  Some say this pick hand's the election to the president.  There are reasons to feel this way but I really want to understand something.

First I laughed, Then I cried: Mitt Romney Cries For Mercy

I saw the headlines:

Covert Mitt:  Don't Attack My Business Background

Romney to Obama:  Truce?

And I could not stop laughing.  I laughed so hard at the absolute insanity of Romney suggesting that anyone needed to layoff his business record, the one that 'qualifies him to be president'.  What?

ADDICTION

A couple of years ago a wonderful woman that had been part of a spiritual community that I was a part of for many years was diagnosed with cancer and died.  Her son who had also been part of that community grew up around it along with my daughter from the time she was eleven.
