Well – we did it! Enough of the country said “When” on November 4th that we are embarking on a new administration – one that, even at this early date, is proving to be at least more aware of itself and its impact on the world than the one we endured for 8 years.
We want to thank the thousands of you who participated in the Say “When” movement – please take credit (and our thanks) for your part in this miracle!
Our point in starting Say “When” was to point out the rampant corruption at the very core of our government. Just in the past year, it has become more and more apparent that the people we elected to represent us are, in many cases, less than honest in their positions of power. It is with your help that millions have become aware – and are holding their representatives responsible.
Because of your awareness and your insistence that others become aware as well, the actions of people in positions of power – not just in government but in business as well – are being brought to light and they are being put on notice that their greed and corrupt values will not be tolerated any longer.
Americans have always embraced the spirit of the entrepreneur – but we will not tolerate a greed that is so pervasive that it smacks of entitlement and illegality. We will continue to support and strive for “the American Dream” – but we will no longer allow it at the expense of others.
It’s been a long and tiring journey to this point – and we thank you for your incredible support! It is truly because of you that we find ourselves here. Thank you again!
We at Say “When” are feeling the desire to change our focus. We feel that the American people have moved into a position of power and will not let the things that plagued us for 8 years develop again. We are giving President Obama and his Administration our support – and a bit of leeway. The hole we found ourselves in just a few short months ago was huge – and will take a while to get out of.
In the spirit of Hope and service and moving forward, we will be suspending our website – www.say-when.org. Our domain name expires on March 6, 2009 – and we will not be renewing it. The site will cease to exist – except in our hearts and memories. This blog will still be up, but we will not be updating it regularly. We will let it rest as well. Your wristbands will be collector’s items one day – and something you can show your kids or grandkids as a symbol of your stand for what’s right in America.
We suggest that you maintain your vigilance – but allow it to be tempered with optimism and faith. Mainstream media still has its challenges for us, but we’re encouraged by two newscasters in particular – Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow of MSNBC. We feel they have their integrity in place and it is with these true journalists we will continue to “keep an eye on things.”
We especially want to thank Rosie O’Donnell. You may or may not “enjoy” her style, but there are very few people who would be willing to put their careers, their reputations, or their butts on the line for their country like Rosie did (and will continue to do, if we know her). It is because of her that millions of people became aware of the disaster that was the Bush Administration. She was a supporter of Say “When” from the beginning – and we will always have a special place in our hearts reserved just for her and her viewers!
If you feel it necessary to contact us, our e-mail at email@example.com will be functioning until March 6. After that, please feel free to leave a comment here.
Thank you again from the bottoms of our hearts – we wish you every good thing you desire and deserve.

Tell the new President and his team what YOU want for your country.
When are you corrupt SOB’s going to get the message – the game is OVER and we’ve had ENOUGH!?

Congratulations, Mr. President-elect.
Thanks for the reminder, Truett…
There have been many harsh words in this campaign – on both sides. PLEASE – set aside your politics and take 20 minutes out of your day to watch these three videos. They made us laugh out loud – primarily because both candidates say what everyone around here has wanted to say for WEEKS!
John McCain – Part 1
John McCain – Part 2
It’s rare that we are left speechless – but this is truly one of those times. What has become of the United States of America that this would be allowed to happen – and that the candidates for whom these people were gathered said nothing? We are saddened…and sickened beyond words.
The Scranton Times-Tribune notes that yet another McCain supporter at a rally today with Gov. Sarah Palin yelled “kill him!” in reference to Sen. Barack Obama:
Chris Hackett addressed the increasingly feisty crowd as they await the arrival of Gov. Palin. Each time the Republican candidate for the seat in the 10th Congressional District mentioned Barack Obama the crowd booed loudly. One man screamed “kill him!”
Last Monday, a supporter also yelled “kill him” at a rally. In the past weeks, McCain supporters have called Obama “an Arab,” “Little Hussein,” and a “terrorist.”
I would also pray Lord that your reputation is involved in all that happens between now and November, because there are millions of people around this world praying to their God — whether it’s Hindu, Buddha, Allah — that his [McCain’s] opponent wins for a variety of reasons.
And Lord I pray that you would guard your own reputation, because they’re going to think that their god is bigger than you, if that happens. So I pray that you would step forward and honor your own name in all that happens between now and Election Day.
Oh Lord, we just commit this time to you, move among us, make your presence very well felt as we are gathered here today in Jesus’ name I pray.
This was the invocation at a John McCain rally in Davenport, Iowa this weekend, given by Rev. Arnold Conrad.
Is this questioning Obama’s faith – suggesting that “his” God is “Hindu, Buddha, Allah?” There is more than one God?!
This is BEYOND outrageous – this is intolerant and ignorant at best. This smacks of insincere acceptance speeches at awards shows and after football games, insinuating that God was somehow on the side of the victorious person/team – blasphemy of the highest order, from where we sit. To a good number of us, it looks plainly devious and despicable. And we are, frankly, appalled.
Contrary to the misguided theories of some – including the present occupant of the White House – this country is NOT a theocracy.
OUR GOD DOESN’T VOTE.
