Hello Everyone:

 –
With today being an special day that occurs only once every four years; I felt that the 2.5 minute video below with a collage of inspirational quotes by Joseph Campbell to “Follow Your Bliss” was the right way to close this month.  The lovely music in the background is Yo-Yo Ma.

I also included the link to my blog post of February 1st which honored Langston Hughes 110th birthday.  The post includes his classic poems on “Dreams” and a short video bio of his life.  Langston Hughes_Hold Fast to Dreams

Ruby Bridges visits with the President and her portrait

Leave a comment

Hello Everyone:

 –

Ruby Bridges visited with President Obama at the White House in the 1.5 minute video below to see how a painting commemorating her personal and historic milestone looks hanging on the wall outside of the Oval Office. American Artist Norman Rockwell was criticized by some when his painting titled “The Problem We All Live With” first appeared on the cover of Look magazine on January 14,1964; now the iconic portrait will be on display in one of the most exalted locations in the country.

In November 1960, six-year-old Ruby Bridges Hall became the first African American child to desegregate an elementary school. Although she only lived a few blocks from the William Frantz Elementary school in New Orleans, Louisiana. Marshals had to escort Ruby because of angry segregationist mobs that gathered in front of the school. For an entire year, she was the only student in her class since white parents pulled their children from the school in protest. She wrote about her experiences in her book THROUGH MY EYES.

Obama Ad Trumpets Auto Revival In Michigan – Primary House Party – Tuesday, Feb. 28th

Comments Off on Obama Ad Trumpets Auto Revival In Michigan – Primary House Party – Tuesday, Feb. 28th

Hello Everyone:

Days before a crucial Republican presidential primary in Michigan, President Obama’s re-election campaign is launching a new television ad in the state highlighting the revival of General Motors and Chrysler after a multibillion-dollar federal bailout. Mirroring the ad Clint Eastwood cut for the Superbowl, the new spot (30 second video below) notes that none of the Republican presidential hopefuls supported federal intervention and that Mitt Romney even penned an op-ed essay in the New York Times titled “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt.”

My February 6, 2012 blog post has the Clint Eastwood Superbowl video at: Clint Eastwood – It’s Halftime in America

PRESIDENT OBAMA’S RESCUE OF THE AUTO INDUSTRY

In 2009, the President decided to extend emergency loans to GM and Chrysler—preventing the collapse of a major American industry:

The Rescue

  • More than 1.1 million jobs saved in 2009, more than 310,000 jobs saved in 2010, and nearly $97 billion in personal income losses prevented
  • More than 200,000 jobs added since June 2009—the most growth in a decade
  • Industry expects to add 167,000 jobs by 2015

The Impact

  • 21.8 percent of Michigan’s workforce is supported by the auto industry
  • 1 in 25 American jobs rely on a healthy auto industry
  • All Big Three automakers—GM, Chrysler, and Ford—are profitable for the first time in seven years.

The Success

  • All outstanding loans have been repaid to the federal government
  • GM and Chrysler sold 3.8 million vehicles in the U.S. in 2011—up 14 and 26 percent respectively from 2010
  • GM is back on top as the world’s number one automaker
==============================================
Michigan is already playing a key role in this election — and as Republicans go to the polls for their primary this Tuesday, February 28th, we’ll be using their big day to out-organize each and every one of their contenders.Volunteers across Michigan are hosting primary day house parties this Tuesday in cities all over our state. So while Republicans cast their ballots, we’ll be getting together to prepare for the months ahead and build the grassroots here in Michigan.

There’s a party in Detroit. Come out, and bring your friends and neighbors, as we show our support for President Obama and Michigan’s Democrats.

Here are the details:

What: Primary day house partyWhere: 2727 Second Avenue
Detroit, MI 48201

When: Tuesday, February 28th
7:00 pm

The contrast in this election couldn’t be more stark. While President Obama took decisive action to help turn our economy around and revive America’s auto industry, this year’s crop of Republican candidates still says we should not have rescued the auto industry — and Mitt Romney has even defended his claim that we should have “let Detroit go bankrupt.”

Clint Eastwood’s “It’s Halftime in America” is a tribute to Detroit’s auto recovery & Michigan’s workers.

Good Morning:

For the second straight year, Chrysler celebrated the city of Detroit and its most prominent industry in a two minute advertisement during the Super Bowl.

This time around, veteran actor Clint Eastwood spoke during “Halftime in America,” playing the role of the nation’s coach as he used the auto industry rebound as a motivational tool.

“How do we come from behind? How do we come together? And how do we win? Detroit’s showing us it can be done,” Eastwood said.

“And what’s true about them is true about all of us. This country can’t be knocked down with one punch. We get right back up and fight again, and when we do, the world’s going to hear the roar of our engines. Yeah, it’s halftime America. And our second half’s about to begin.”

The message of unity apparently moved Chevrolet, which sent out a tweet thanking…

HEALING Benefits of Stretching
I recently came across this article on stretching” which is you will find astounding. Jacques Gauthier healed himself of debilitating vasculitis, arthritis and osteoporosis through stretching.
