Get your Grandmomma to vote for Obama!

Note: this has a lot of swear­ing in it and crude lan­guage. I like it any­way, but choose wisely, young Skywalker.

Now that you’ve watched the video, go, seri­ously go and visit http://www.thegreatschlep.com/ and down­load the talk­ing points and talk to your Grand­par­ents, even if you’re not Jewish!

Why it’s impor­tant to me:

Deal­ing with Cli­mate change, the das­tardly vil­lain of our times is urgent. This be seri­ous. This is the rea­son for increased storms in some parts of the world and increased drought in other parts of the world. Obama and Biden have a great, aggres­sive plan. McCain and Palin want to calm the oil com­pa­nies. No time for that, kids.

Sus­tain­abil­ity for Peace. We fight wars over resources. We fight over energy, if it comes to it, we would fight wars over water. (That will be the next big one if some­thing isn’t done. Many of OUR water sources are owned by for­eign com­pa­nies, and there are many other issues involved with water.) We need to be able to pro­vide energy for our­selves and we should want other peo­ple to be able to sus­tain them­selves at some level above abject poverty. Our col­lec­tive sus­tain­abil­ity is a pre-requisite for Peace. There are other pre-requisites too, but that is a big one. I don’t want any more blood even slightly on my hands. It makes me sick that peo­ple who work for a gov­ern­ment that I sup­port with my money are tor­tur­ing peo­ple. This has got to stop.

(By the way, I was just think­ing the other day that indi­vid­u­ally, liv­ing in a sus­tain­able man­ner– not in debt– is also one way to enable your­self to act with integrity.)

Those are the big ones for me. I have a lot of other issues that I care about but deal­ing with cli­mate change and mak­ing our way of liv­ing sus­tain­able are the rea­sons it is IMPORTANT to me that Obama and Biden win.
