After eight long years and three presidential elections, we have finally managed to elect a President without hanging chads, and election tampering issues abounding from every corner!!

No matter who your candidate was, the election was for a change fair and clearly evident. This was best accomplished by the huge turnout of voters who wanted to be sure their voice was heard. Americans voted and their voices…
VOTE VOTE VOTE!

The California Nurses Association is asking what you could do with the $150,000 the Republican National Committee recently spent on Gov. Sarah Palin’s wardrobe and makeup. “Spending $150,000 for a one month wardrobe while painting yourself as a ‘hockey mom’ or the voice of ‘Joe Six Pack’ is an insult,” said CNA/NNOC Executive Director Rose Ann DeMoro.

To illustrate their point, the California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee (CNA/NNOC)has set up a…
