It's Saturday morning on September 13, and I'm sitting in a Starbucks in NH. I drove up to volunteer for the day.

The message below, which I just sent to the RNC, explains what I found when I got here and what I was told was RNC policy.

I doubt if my message to the RNC ever gets to someone who cares and can make a difference, but perhaps you know someone who can, does, and will.

I just drove up from Massachusetts to spend the day walking neighborhoods in New Hampshire, hoping to make a difference for the campaign in a battleground state.

I discovered that there were _no_ materials of any kind that listed Palin, the campaign's biggest asset right now and the person who is bringing more people to the ticket than ever before.

I was incredulous.


Not even something printed from a desktop printer or from the local Kinko's or Office Depot.

When I asked about my doing something on my own (and of course paid for by me), I was told that that wasn't an option. The young lady was very polite, and I'm sure just following the dictates from the RNC. My disappointment wasn't with her in any way, and I explained this before I walked out.

Why spend a day canvassing without the basic materials that showcase the new ticket--the one that has people energized and the one that has given us a real chance in these battleground states?

And prohibiting the local office or a volunteer who shows up from being resourceful?

This goes against my core principles and is counter to those held dear by others in the GOP. Is this really the stand that the RNC wants to take?

I then spent the next 10 or so minutes in the parking lot trying to get someone from DC headquarters of the RNC on the phone, bouncing from voicemail to voicemail. Saturday morning, 10 a.m., less than 60 days from the election and no one's "home?" I finally reached someone in the press office and talked him into transferring me to someone who actually was working today. He transferred me to someone who also didn't answer, and whose voicemail said that her mailbox wasn't accepting messages because it was full.

Seems to me that you need dedicated, competent folks more than ever.

Recently an insurance company nearly wind up....

A bank is nearly bankrupt......

How it affect you? Did you buy insurance? Did you buy mini note or bonds?

They bailout trouble finance company, but they will not bail out your credit card bills……You got no choice, and no point pointing finger but you can prevent similar things from happen again……

Who fault?

The top management of the Public listed company ( belong to "public" ) salary should be tied a portion of it to the shares price ( IPO or ave 5 years ).... so when the shares price drop, it don't just penalise the investors, but those who don't take care of the company.....If this rule is pass on, without any need of further regulation, all industries ( as long as it is public listed ) will be self regulated......because the top management will be concern about their own pay check……

Are you a partisan?

Sign a petition to your favourite president candidate, congress member, House of representative again and ask for their views to comment on this, and what regulations they are going to raise for implementation.....If you agree on my point, please share with many people as possible....
