Debate Viewing tomorrow night...

Hi Folks....

Don't forget the Debate viewing party at the N. Wood County Headquarters at 230 N. Central Ave in Marshfield.....6:30 I think is the right time.....we had a great time for the last two debates and Amy-Sue Vruwink was good enough to join us for the last one. She gave us a great insight into the legislative side of the things that the Governor was saying and the version (coughliescough) Mark Green was telling. Anyway I hope you can join us.


I just heard a clip on The Stephanie Miller Show of Bruce Springsteen's No Retreat, No Surrender which was really John Kerry's anthem during the 04 campaign. It still brings tears to my eyes....and inspires me to no are the lyrics ... I hope they inspire you too.

We busted out of class had to get away from those fools
We learned more from a three minute record than we ever learned in school
Tonight I hear the neighborhood drummer sound
I can feel my heart begin to pound
You say you're tired and you just want to close your eyes and follow your dreams

We made a promise we swore we'd always remember
No retreat no surrender
Like soldiers in the winter's night with a vow to defend
No retreat no surrender

Now young faces grow sad and old and hearts of fire grow cold
We swore blood brothers against the wind
I'm ready to grow young again
And hear your sister's voice calling us home across the open yards

Well maybe we could cut someplace of our own
With these drums and these guitars
Blood brothers in the stormy night with a vow to defend
No retreat no surrender

Now on the street tonight the lights grow dim
The walls of my room are closing in
There's a war outside still raging
you say it ain't ours anymore to win
I want to sleep beneath peaceful skies in my lover's bed
with a wide open country in my eyes
