I thought it was funny and odd that Crespo would send out a mailer that says something about what Peggy Brothman, Fred Crespo’s Republican opponent in the 44th District supports. He alleges that she is a ‘typical republican’ who supports the ‘insurance lobby’.

But when you look at Crespo’s 2006 handouts from special interest groups, he has $4500 given to him by lawyers and lobbyists.

Brothman, by comparison, has little to report as far as donations.

Crespo received a whopping $80,000+ from Madigan’s machine in order to get him elected.

Isn’t it high time we went back to representative government and starting electing people who aren’t supported by the teacher’s unions?

This is what you find when you research Crespo’s donations to his 2006 campaign:  Total Raised- $170,295

He should be careful what he throws at Brothman, LOL…his record is public and available for all to see.

We can only expect more of the same BS if we don’t find a way of booting the democrats out…Crespo is attached to Lisa Madigan and got over $80,000 in 2006 from the democrat machine here.  

Illinois is sick of debt and democrats only know how to make more of it.  It’s time we returned to representation in government here; their job is to SERVE, not to dictate and spend.  That’s why Peggy Brothman is the girl for me!  She spent 7 years in School District 54, and that’s a success story with a balanced budget.  

Just imagine if someone like that was working for us in Springfield!  I just love the idea of that!

This is an interesting race, from what I can tell, and we’re getting closer to finding out just what Illinois republicans think.

Peggy Brothman, who has a long career in the school district and served on the Schaumburg District 54 School Board for seven years, and served as president for two-is stepping up to oppose Madigan-financed Fred Crespo, who himself switched parties from Republican to Democrat-back when Parke, a long time republican, was about to retire after some 22 years.

That in itself was controversial.

Crespo is falling in with what’s popular here instead of representing his constituents; the Madigan machine is funding his ads, and he doesn’t have to do any fundraising; whereas Brothman has limited funding and in Barack Obama’s Daley democrat-controlled machine run state, has quite an interesting race ahead in these last few weeks.

Brothman has been successful in her door-to-door campaign, but I think it’s high time to step it up.

Crespo has now been a democrat for a couple of years, and he, too, like Barack Obama, ran on that “change” platform. That’s fitting; he “changed” parties when it was politically expedient.

He is going after the hispanic minority vote, leveraging his Puerto Rican minority background as a victim class, hoping that Illinoisans will buy and pull the lever for him again.

You needn’t look too far to see that democrats in Illinois work to become career politicians who don’t accomplish much except tax and spend.

Most people haven’t heard of Peggy Brothman, but it’s high time Citizens for Peggy Brothman stepped up to the plate and started batting. Peggy is for fiscal responsibility, and her involvement in school district 54 helped; they have a balanced budget.

What have the democrats done in Illinois to balance the budget? They don’t even have those terms in their vocabulary!

It should be easy to dethrone Crespo, if Republicans who are disgusted with the current state of the Republican party in Illinois- come out and vote to change that.

Get off your couches, ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to fight for right.

As Peggy says on her website:

The Democrats who are wholly in charge of this state have been given the chance, and they have failed. I believe that people in this area as well as throughout the entire state of Illinois want a new style of leadership. They don’t want politicians anymore, they want everyday people like themselves bringing their common sense attitude to tackle the challenges of state government.

Peggy is our girl!

Get rid of these tax and spend liberals!

And let’s get rid of the tax and spend convert to the democrats; Fred Crespo!

Here are seven reasons not to vote for Barack Obama.

[1] Obama wants to issue driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants. He even advocated this while in the Illinois Senate.

[2] Obama is for gun control. Are you listening, hunters and folks who just want to protect their family in case their home is broken into?

[3] Obama approves of baby killing (abortion). He voted to lift the ban on partial-birth abortion.

[4] Obama has the former CEO and CFO of the failed Fannie Mae as financial advisors. They helped create this mess, and now they can tell him how to fix it?

[5] In 2005, when George Bush, John McCain and others were calling for tighter controls on lending institutions, Obama and others voted against it. Oh, and don’t blame this mess on Bush. Bill Clinton, a Democrat, was the president who pushed for loaning to those whose credit was less than stellar.

[6] Obama says he is a Christian, but he has also said, “I will stand with the Muslims if the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” (From his book “Audacity of Hope.”) Do you know what the Muslim goal is? World rule and making conversion to Islam mandatory or be killed. The Koran says this is OK.

[7] Obama has the most liberal voting record in the Senate. With Congress under Democratic control, in the interest of good checks and balances, we don’t need a Democrat for president.

Thanks to Ruth Wallen from Henderson, Ky for the tip.

In a powerful video with personal testimonials, key black conservative leaders, including Dr. Alveda C. King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., talk about how their faith influences the policies and politics they support. These black Americans state eloquently why they support Sen. John McCain and cannot, in good conscience, support Sen. Barack Obama. A primary reason cited by these black American leaders is Obama’s radical position on abortion, including the fact that Obama voted four times in the Illinois Senate against the bill that would provide health care to babies born alive after a botched abortion.

Why is the issue of abortion so important to black American leaders? Black communities are being devastated by abortion which is tantamount to black genocide. 35% of abortions in the United States are performed on African-American women, while they represent only 12% of our nation’s female population. According to the 2000 Census, 14 million (17 million as of 2007) African-American children have been killed through abortion. This means that more African-American babies have been killed by abortion during the past 30 years than the total number of African-American deaths from all other causes combined, including AIDS, heart disease, cancer, violent crimes and accidents. This is a crisis in black America that Obama does not care about.

Black Pro-Life Advocate Says Barack Obama Still Misleads on Abortion Votes – This eye-opening website features the words of a leading African-American pro-life advocate who says Obama continues to mislead the public about his votes on an abortion/infanticide bill. Even more troubling is the fact that in July 2007, Obama said: “The first thing I’d do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act.” That bill would make unlimited abortions throughout pregnancy the national law and overturn any abortion limits in all 50 states. The bill would also require taxpayer funding of abortion, eliminate parental notification laws, and end restrictions on partial-birth abortion.

Black Pro-Life Advocate Says Barack Obama Still Misleads on Abortion Votes

View Obama’s Abortion Voting Record – Obama actively opposed the legislation in the Illinois Senate that would have provided health care to babies born alive after a botched abortion. In 2001, he voted “no” in committee, spoke against it on the Senate floor, and voted “present” on the floor. In 2002, he voted “no” in committee, spoke against it on the Senate floor, and voted “no” on the floor. Obama was the sole senator to ever speak against it on the Senate floor. The U.S. Senate passed the federal bill unanimously, with Senators Barbara Boxer and Ted Kennedy speaking in support of it. The pro-abortion group, NARAL, expressed neutrality on the federal bill. On August 5, 2002, President George W. Bush signed it into law.

For four years Obama has said he would have supported the federal version, but that simply isn’t true. In 2003, as chairman of the Illinois Senate’s Health and Human Services Committee, Obama voted “yes” on an amendment that made the Illinois version identical to the federal one. However, he then voted “no” on the amended bill.

Senator Obama’s Voting Record

Obama Lied About His Abortion Voting Record During the Third Presidential Debate – An analysis of the third presidential debate shows that Obama lied about his legislative action on abortion.

Obama Lie One: Obama stated that the Born Alive Infant Protection Act “said you have to provide lifesaving treatment and that would have helped to undermine Roe v. Wade.”

Truth: The legislation applied to babies that were born live, living completely outside their mothers’ womb and no longer under any jurisdiction of Roe v. Wade.

Obama Lie Two: Obama stated, “And the Illinois Medical Society, the organization of doctors in Illinois, voted against it. Their Hippocratic Oath would have required them to provide care, and there was already a law in the books.”

Truth: Illinois abortion law to this day only protects babies that survive an abortion who the abortionist deems fit to live. Obama opposed closing this loophole by voting against legislation to mandate a second doctor be present at deliveries of all babies born alive, in order to independently assess their viability.

Obama Lie Three: “I am completely supportive of a ban on late-term abortions, partial-birth or otherwise, as long as there’s an exception for the mother’s health and life, and this did not contain that exception.”

Truth: Note Obama’s slick use of the phrases “late term” and “partial birth” abortions when the issue is about babies “born alive” after a botched abortion. Obama then starts talking about the “mother’s health and life” to deflect attention away from the live baby in need of health care to continue surviving. In 2001, Obama was the only Illinois senator to speak out on the Senate floor against the bill that would provide health care to babies born alive after a botched abortion. What kind of man is Obama who would do that, then lie, straight-faced, about what he had done?

Obama’s Lies

Vatican official attacks U.S. Democrats as “party of death” By Phil Stewart which exposes how the former St. Louis Archbishop Raymond Burk who is the head of the Vatican’s highest court, the Vatican’s Supreme Court of the Apostolic Signature, said that the Democratic Party risked “transforming itself definitively into a party of death for its decisions on bioethical issues.” He then attacked two of the party’s most high profile Catholics — vice presidential candidate Joe Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi — for misrepresenting Church teaching on abortion. Pope Benedict has been encouraging Catholic bishops to speak out more openly on public policy issues to make the Church’s voice heard.

Planned Parenthood: Wanting fewer blacks ‘understandable’ by Bob Unruh uncovers the shocking truth about how Planned Parenthood, the nation’s abortion industry leader, says ‘yes’ when ‘donor’ wants to reduce minorities. The article includes a video showing how a student-run magazine at UCLA revealed an undercover investigation in which representatives of Planned Parenthood admitted willingness to accept a financial donation targeting the destruction of an unborn black baby.

But a commenter spells it out more clearly:

The issue with all this is that a poor loser political enemy of Sarah Palin (Halcro) who she beat in the Governor’s election put 2+2 together and came up with 5 after Palin demoted her Public Safety Commissioner (Monegan), one of her Cabinet appointees who serves at will and can be replaced at any time by the Governor for any reason. (Monegan quit his job by the way instead of taking a demotion) Well, Halcro surmised on his blog that if Palin replaced Commissioner Monegan, it must have been because of him not firing her ex brother-in-law. Palin says it was because her cabinet member Monegan was uncooperative in hiring more troopers and because of a failure to curb alcohol abuse in the native villages.

Even Commissioner Monegan agrees that Palin NEVER asked him to fire the trooper. But, Obama’s point man in Alaska Democrat State Senator Hollis French pushed for an investigation which HE now heads. Using his power in State Government, French hired a former prosecutor colleage of his (and a 30 year friend) to investigate the Governor. Now get this….This investigator French hired (Branchflower) is also a 30 year personal friend of Public Safety Commissioner Monegan and investigator Branchflower’s wife used to work Monegan! That’s fair?

The whole impetus of this comes down to whether they can read her mind on why she demoted the Commissioner.

This whole thing is ridiculous, but I guess politics isn’t about truth and justice.

So although the committee was bi-partisan – 10 republicans and 4 democrats, it would appear they were all out for the same thing and were all in bed with one another.

I still need to see how she violated the public trust; the Alaskans – except for the politicians she has pissed off – are very happy with her.

The pic above is from Wild Thing – over at Theodore’s World; the PC Free Zone Gazette

Also at Wild Thing’s PC Free zone Gazette:

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin acted “within proper and lawful authority” in removing the state’s public safety commissioner, the McCain-Palin Republican presidential ticket has said in response to a state report.

The McCain-Palin statement said, “Today’s report shows that the Governor acted within her proper and lawful authority in the reassignment of Walt Monegan.”

“This was a partisan led inquiry run by (Barack) Obama supporters and the Palins were completely justified in their concern regarding Trooper (Michael) Wooten given his violent and rogue behaviour,” the campaign’s statement said. Senator Obama is the Democratic presidential candidate.

“Lacking evidence to support the original Monegan allegation, the Legislative Council seriously overreached, making a tortured argument to find fault without basis in law or fact,” the McCain-Palin statement said.

But you wouldn’t know that part of one of the findings reads:

“Governor Palin’s firing of Commissioner Monegan was a proper and lawful exercise of her constitutional and statutory authority to hire and fire executive branch department heads.”

If you read the report and compare it to events that actually happened, you’re left wondering why they ‘found’ that “Palin abused her power”. Supposedly she violated Alaska Statute 39.52.110(a) where:

“The legislature reaffirms that each public officer holds office as a public trust, and any effort to benefit a personal or financial interest through official action is a violation of that trust.”

I don’t see how protecting her family from a drunken nut case violates “the public trust”, or offering Monegan another job is “violating the public trust”, either. After reading about Wooten and Monegan, I think they should have been tarred and feathered and run out of town on a rail.

From Thanks to Palin: SHOCKING: Democratic Ethics Probe Says Palin Abused Her Power

The troopergate issue has ended in a Democratic-led ethics probe saying Palin was unethical in firing Public Safety Commissioner Walter Monegan.

Now THAT’s a laugh. And it’s democratic socialists – led “ethics” probe; or just merely DemocratIC. There is something seriously wrong with people searching for ethics when they have none of their own. What they’re looking through is a socialist prism, Alinsky-style. This is where they hold Republicans to their own standards; with the intent of removing them as political opponents; even if the charges are false. It’s a complete double-standard; since Obama’s own “ethics” problems are surfacing en masse.

But, they admitted that she did NOT fire Monegan for his refusal to dismiss Mike Wooten, a state tooper. Instead, they say she abused her power by refusing to stop her husband from using state resources to encourage the firing of Wooten.

Actually, Monegan was offered another position, which he turned down. How that should come back at Palin implicating the problems with Wooten is completely baffling. Wooten was Palin’s former brother-in-law who’d threatened to kill Palin’s father, was stalking her sister, had a history of getting drunk on the job and even drinking in his patrol car.

From The Tundra Drums, Jim Crawford spells it out:

In Alaska, we do not have one set of laws for the common folk and one for the troopers. “Troopergate” exposes hindering prosecution, covering up crimes, and obstruction of justice by troopers, supervisors and union representatives to protect one of their own.

In Alaska, it is a crime to drive drunk. Instead of being arrested, when a bartender reported Wooten driving drunk in his patrol car, the trooper who pulled Wooten over told him to park his car and drove him home. No Breathalyzer, no sobriety tests.

If a citizen, not a trooper, tasered his kid, he would be arrested on a charge of child abuse.

If a citizen, not a trooper, shot a moose without a proper license, he would be arrested on a charge of illegal taking of game.

If a citizen, not a trooper, were drinking beer in a moving vehicle, he’d be arrested on a charge of operating a vehicle with an open container of alcohol.

In America, if a man with a gun threatens the life of your family member, you and any citizen have the right to go to the authorities and demand both protection and prosecution of the crime. Did the trooper who investigated this threat, witnessed on the life of a member of Palin’s family, prosecute or cover up the crime?

Wooten walked on each accusation documented in his personnel file. With each count, his fellow troopers and supervisors hindered prosecution and covered up Wooten’s crimes. They violated their oath of office to enforce the law they were sworn to uphold.

My turn: Troopergate allegations expose new corruption

Crimes are not personnel matters. “Troopergate” confirmed Wooten’s multiple crimes. The cover-up of crimes is the foundation of public corruption, just as it was long ago in Watergate.

None of that was mentioned by the “investigative” team pictured above; and this stinks out loud – of the pot calling the kettle black! Without acknowledging the crimes of these two troopers, –both Monegan and Wooten, and announcing that Palin is guilty of abusing power – is completely absurd. Monegan, for his part, is no angel, either, in that he threatened to kill his wife and dislocated her shoulder. Some, in fact, have said that Palin fired a wifebeater…and considering how he treated his ex, I can see how there would be tension between a strong woman in charge and a man who has a history of problems with women. The fact that he was offered another position doesn’t even come up in the charges against Palin by the democrat-controlled investigation.

This democrat-controlled investigation and its verdict are both shams, and they remind me of Obama’s stellar rise in politics. Scenarios created by Obama’s people to remove political opponents are becoming all too familiar. Blair Hull and Jack Ryan saw their political careers destroyed or damaged enough to take them out of political life, due to the same Alinsky-style tactics. In Ryan’s case, Axelrod’s former employer, the Chicago Tribune, lobbied in court to have his sealed divorce records opened in order to smear him with information that was private – and was nobody’s business.

Even people in the UK are noticing: Barack Obama makes his own weather in the storm

After a lengthy internal investigation, these crimes were just footnotes in his personnel file. The accusations that he committed crimes were covered up and papered over by his union and supervisors at the Alaska Department of Public Safety.

And these things have little to do with Palin personally; this has to do with unethical behavior on the part of a corrupt system which Palin was busy cleaning up; none of which was mentioned by the democrats who took a trip to Alaska in order to attack Palin’s character. Back to Thanks to Palin: SHOCKING: Democratic Ethics Probe Says Palin Abused Her Power:

If that’s not a thin enough case for you, then let me remind you that Mike Wooten, ex-husband of Palin’s sister, was accused of threatening the Governor as well as using a taser on a 10 year old.

Palin has demonstrated time after time in her short time as Governor that there was much to be cleaned up in Alaskan state politics. If there’s anything corrupt going on in the Troopergate situation, it’s that no investigation has been made on Trooper Wooten and Walter Monegan.

For more ridiculous accusations directed at Sarah Palin, see Palin Rumors.

When reading meatbrain’s site it’s apparent that – he’s a self-loathing white guy whose definition of racism is quite different than that in the dictionary; it means -focus your hatred on someone who’s a conservative and call that person a racist; no matter what reality is.

Meatbrain, you see, is Terry Bisson the science fiction writer, and he doesn’t know what reality is – he left the real world a long time ago and lives in a world of hatred and venom; which he aims at people who disagree with his demented socialist ideology; a weird strain of voodoo.

Beware; if you’re a capitalist, you might find yourself on his list of people to harass.

If you took a picture of Kender and his extended family, it would look like a UN postcard; yet to my knowledge, Terry Bisson’s children and family are all lily white. Socialists (aka democrats) are the ones who stress race, which is why Bisson keeps bringing it up. He’s actually the one that has a problem with it, being that he bypasses reason and goes to bat for criminal cop killers like mumia (strictly on the basis of race). while complaining that people would have compassion for – or dare to help- someone who finds himself homeless.

In this post, Meatbrain displays a chilling sense of Schadenfreude. And he goes to great lengths to accomplish it; he mirrors a post from Kender’s website that was put up in a moment of utter and complete dispair and then taken down. In some weird alternate dimension, meatbrain’s twisted mind has come up with the conclusion that Kender’s post was not genuine; and that he’s scamming people for money.

That’s a really sick joke he’s playing on himself right there.

Kender lost his significant other, a place to live, a vehicle to get around in, and his dialysis machine; all in one fell swoop.

Of course, the fact that Kender’s friends have rallied around him and lifted him back up PAINS meatbrain, because people who don’t agree with him should all die.

Maybe karma is showing itself here; because I’m convinced that meatbrain is so selfish and self-absorbed that if the situation were reversed, no one would rally around him; no one would have any compassion for his falling on hard times, and none of his socialist “friends” would give him a dime.

You have to BE a friend in order to have friends.

Meatbrain knows only hatred, criticism and contempt.

What a mihrab means to the Wahhabists, the Khomeini-ists and the other Salafists

In 1981, Ayatollah Khomeini explained the meaning of a Mecca-direction indicator (called a mihrab), like the one now being planted on the Flight 93 crash site:

Mehrab means the place of war, the place of fighting. Out of the mehrabs, wars should proceed, just as all the wars of Islam used to proceeded out of the mehrabs. [Hat tip Yoel Natan, Moon-o-theism, p. 30]

The I-ah-told-you-so wasn’t just speaking allegorically either. The University of Chicago’s Francis Joseph Seinglass Comprehensive Persian-English dictionary lists amongst its definitions for mihrab: “warlike,” and “a field of battle.” (Hat tip Czechmade.)

Anyone who thinks it is okay to build the world’s largest mihrab on the Flight 93 crash site really should read Khomeini’s whole speech (his tribute to Muhammad). It’s only two pages, but psychopathic hellspawn like Khomeini can pack an awful lot of murder-lust into a short space, when every stinking sentence is a plea for wanton slaughter.

From beginning:

The real Day of God is the day that Amir al mo’menin drew his sword and slaughtered all the khavarej and killed them from the first to the last.

To end:

We believe that the accused essentially does not have to be tried. He or she must just be killed. Only their identity is to be established and then they should be killed.

“The accused,” of course, is YOU, and all the other “discontented people” who do not readily submit to the murder-cult’s endless demands.

To rid the world of who they accuse of violating God’s law, they grant themselves exemption from the Sixth Commandment. Evil stupidity. Maggots for brains. Matched only by the see-no-evil stupidity of a western world that is so defrauded by its dishonest left wing media that it is losing the capacity to fight back.

Will we really build a Salafist memorial mosque on the Flight 93 crash site? Will we really elect a president who is in bed with Islamofascists and domestic terrorists alike? Will we really let Iran get the nuclear weapons with which to wipe city after American city off the map, as they so desperately crave? Will we really turn off the energy spigot–the key to past and continuing progress–based on utterly fraudulent claims of human-caused global warming, even as the world descends into a substantial cooling phase?

None of these issues should even be in question, yet the minority of us who are trying to stem the collapse of the nation can barely battle even these gimmies to a draw, and could lose all four. If the nation survives this “moment” in history–this long war with Islamic fascism and with our own liberty hating left–it will be thanks to the relative handful of people who recognize honest reason and evidence as impenetrable armor and unbreakable sword against those who seek advantage in manipulative dishonesty.

The demagogues and their dupes are powerful in numbers, but blind. Their hostility to contrary reason and evidence divorces them from reality, leaving them ignorant of surrounding truth. That is our advantage. We know the lay of the land, and can use it to defeat them, but we still have to get up and do it.

A follow up to Obsession, Radical Islam’s War Against the West comes The Third Jihad…

[…] a documentary whose goal is to alert, educate and mobilize Americans about the danger radical Islam poses to the United States and to Western civilization as a whole. The film spotlights radical Islam’s war against liberal ideas, its violent, anti-democratic agenda as well as its systematic human and civil rights abuses against women, blacks, homosexuals, Christians and moderate Muslims.

The Third Jihad focuses on radical Islam’s campaign to dominate America and the West, and the ramifications of such a reality on our day to day lives. It underscores the importance of the American people joining together against radical Islam, that if not defeated, will continue to threaten our lives and values until they are destroyed completely.

Narrated by Dr. Zudhi Jasser, a moderate Muslim concerned about the spread of radical Islam in America, The Third Jihad aims to achieve the following two goals:

  • Educate viewers about the dangerous activities and frightening goals of radical Islamists, and their potential threat to the lives and values of millions of Americans.
  • Motivate viewers to become ambassadors for freedom and democracy by taking a stance against the activities and perpetrators of radical Islamic activities, spreading knowledge and lobbying political figures to eradicate such terrorist activities.

Kender needs help

Some of us who’ve been around for a while know Kender’s story, but let me share a little bit about what I know that makes this bleg urgent.

He’s caught in the system; having had a problem with his kidneys since he was a little boy. He is smaller because he went through those health problems as a child, and today, he can’t make too much money – because if he does, he has to forego the much-needed government benefits he needs to survive and get his life-saving medical treatments. Without dialysis, he would die.

His last kidney transplant failed. He has so far had two of them, as far as I know.

That part pretty much sucks, but he pretty much takes it all in stride. I find that amazing; I am constantly amazed by Kender’s unfailing resolve.

He did have a moment recently when he hit a low and said he was going to suspend treatments, that he saw no hope of going on, that he was going to write a note to his son, and just shrivel up and die….but that was short-lived.

You can understand how someone who lives with this condition every day might have a low day now and then; even healthy people with no problems go through that.

Now, his ‘significant other’ relationship is over, and he finds himself without a home. He had a pretty nice set up with her, he had a home dialysis machine and she was his assistant backup in case something went wrong in the process; which can happen sometimes. Sometimes the patient passes out; but any number of things can happen in the process of putting in the needles, etc.. But the main point is, when he’s doing his own dialysis at home, he’s not at the mercy of the ‘unit’s’ schedule, and he feels better; not to mention the fact that he doesn’t have to find transportation to and from the unit.

At any rate, this lady still has his dialysis machine. He moved in with someone temporarily, but needs to get back there to collect his belongings, but more importantly, get his dialysis machine, and he needs his own place to live, which is another expense that is much more expensive up front, but will be manageable once he pays those up front expenses.

All of these things take money, and he has no vehicle, which is another factor which is going to prevent him from doing what he needs to do.

Now, we have had a generous offer out of Florida where a woman is willing to give her motor home to Kender, if we can find a way to get it to California. So we’re working on several ideas to get it from Florida to California; one of which is an old-fashioned daisy chain.

We have an offer to help out from Alabama, and another from Dallas, Texas, and Kender’s dad is in Arkansas – and he’s willing to pitch in. The motor home will take about a quart of oil a day traveling that far, and I’m not sure about gas mileage, but these are all things that will cost – but it’s the cheapest route to get it to where it needs to go.

Updated: more stops

Updated stops…

See the preliminary map and stops, here.

So take a look at the map and let’s see if we can get that vehicle over to him. Insurance and tags are paid for and the transfer will happen once it’s in California, which was also very trusting and generous of the owner.

He needs some cash – to put some of his stuff in storage, to raise money for his new place, and a number of things that I’ve already mentioned, and he is between a rock and a hard place as far as being able to do it for himself, and that’s where you come in. Please contribute whatever you can; time is of the essence here; he needs to get his stuff; particularly his dialysis machine.

Kender’s plan is to get on his own two feet so he can move forward from here. Every now and then it helps to get a leg up.

So please go to his website and donate what you can.

Update: Kender tells me that being tethered to a unit’s schedule robs him of his freedom, and he doesn’t feel as good when he goes through their dialysis procedure as when he does it at home.

being back in a unit has proven I don’t feel as good on a machine in center
and mentally I cannot lose my freedom again
and frankly I simply must find a way to make this work or I will lose my machine and I am not sure that I can handle that again….
and if every person who stopped by just left 5 bucks we would be doing ok
