Trying to pace my coffee intake so I can stay awake until dawn tomorrow for our Yule party tonight. Why oh why am I even at work?! Argh!

I started a petition on Care2. If you agree with me, take the pledge and pass it along!

Starting a new personal political crusade this coming election cycle: campaign against the reelection of anyone in our representative government that's been in Washington more than two terms.

If there's one thing I've learned from this shutdown, it's that they're all all liars and corrupt. They are willing to hold us all hostage to further their own political agenda -- which is 99% of the time just to get reelected! They're willing to take food out of the mouths of children and lie directly to our faces. (See Jim Matheson's tweets, for example, about finding a clean resolution to the shutdown while voting against ending the shutdown: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/10/14/1247222/-The-Seven-Lying-Democrats-That-Betroyed-Democracy-and-Joined-GOP-on-HR-368-to-Deny-Vote-on-Clean-CR)

I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!  If you like my idea, +1 it, share it, get the word spreading among family and friends. Fresh blood and new faces only in the next election, and the one after that, and the one after that.

Yes, it means losing people like Pelosi and Barney Frank. But it also means getting rid of old baggage like Hatch and Matheson. If they want to stay in the political game, they need to find some other office to run for. Change things up. Or for gods sake just RETIRE!

Too easy to forget in the rhetoric and hyperbole of the White House and media that THIS is why chemical weapons are banned. What's important is shutting those weapons down, not letting superpowers bomb the same innocent civilians. #EndWarNow

Now there is a glimmer of hope for a peaceful way to stop these massacres. "

As many of you know, we're working to establish and build a charity called SUM1 that deals with sanitation issues throughout the world. Right now we've just started a special campaign to fund an NGO in Northern India so that they can reach thousands and kids throughout 2013.

I've started a crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo to raise as much of $5000 as I can. All the others in the team are doing similar projects to raise $500 to $5000 as well. If you can give even just a few dollars to this, great! If you can't but know someone who can, please share! If I can make this campaign go viral, there's a great chance that we can fund this group for a year or more to get the message out and put an end toward open defecation in India.
