Happy Valentines Day

From Courage Campaign
“Fidelity”: Watch the video and join our letter to the state Supreme Court, signed by over 200,000 people
Tell the Supreme Court to invalidate Prop 8, reject Ken Starr’s case, and let loving, committed
couples marry. DEADLINE EXTENDED: March 2

We, the undersigned, share President Barack Obama’s view that “for too long, issues of LGBT rights have been exploited by those seeking to divide us. It’s time to move beyond polarization and live up to our founding promise of equality
by treating all our citizens with dignity and respect.”
Yet, on December 19, 2008, Ken Starr and the Prop 8 Legal Defense Fund filed legal briefs defending the constitutionality of Prop 8 and seeking to nullify the marriages of 18,000 devoted same-sex couples solemnized before Prop 8 passed.
The Supreme Court will hear arguments in this case on March 5, with a decision expected within 90 days. We, the undersigned, ask that the Court enforce the equality promised to each of us by our constitution and invalidate
Prop 8. So doing will protect all loving, committed couples in California — including the 18,000 who said “I do” last year — and prevent the initiative process from being a tool for stripping vulnerable minorities of precious constitutional rights.
As Americans who believe in the rule of law and fundamental civil rights, we know that Ken Starr and the Prop 8 Legal Defense Fund’s shameful attempt to nullify equal protection and all these bonded unions will be condemned in the eyes
of history. We know that, ultimately, love will prevail, no matter how hard they try to fight it.
241,152 people have signed this letter*.
NEW GOAL: 250,000 signers by March 2.

Bonnie Raitt & Move On team up to stop nukes…cool

Watch & Listen to the video then sign the petition OK? I did. It only takes a minute or two. -val

Subject: A new generation of nuclear plants?


I had to tell you about the energy bill that Congress is about to pass. Most of it is great–gets us more solar and wind energy and even makes cars more fuel efficient. But there’s one line in there that was added at the last minute that gives up to $50 billion for the nuclear industry. Enough money to launch a whole new generation of plants.

If you thought we had beat back nuclear power in the 70’s, you’re not alone. A bunch of musicians who fought nukes back then have picked up their instruments and started fighting again.

Click here to check out the music video and sign the petition:


Nukes present a real security threat and environmental hazard. We’ve got to get Congress to strip this money before they pass the energy bill.

So, pass this on!
