Inspiring Quotes Wednesday...(and stuff)

your quotes speak VOLUMES! i'm feeling very sick to my stomach. like you i can NOT believe the bill (now law) passed. sick. sick. SICK!

hopefully 400+ people reading this blog will MAKE their vote COUNT this November. and hopefully by then it's not too late to this country - the same country your husband fights so hard for.


amen, sister!

I though I had ordered that set but wound up with something instead how awesome you got a card from dawn!

My husband has been reading the bill. It isn't like the first one, at least. However, the government should not have the power to force everyone to buy something and I think it is way too overreaching and completely unfair for a small portion of the population to subsidize something for the majority of the population. Talk about redistribution of wealth. It isn't right.

Those quotes are so true. Makes me shudder at the thought of what's to come.

Good luck with your project. I'm sure you'll zip right thru it. You certainly filled up those other stacks of dvd cases in a hurry. Just keep thinking to yourself...Italy, here I come. :)

I love the little turtle stamp.
