If you care about civil rights here is another reason to “Vote for Obama“:
Ultra-conservative Puritanical Religionist Republicans of Dooooom!
Civil Rights has a history, (especially under Bush politics) of suffering and being violated horribly under a Republican regime – I am talking to you Patriot Act, to which the ACLU has had to fight hard to try and fix. Who knows how many innocent people’s lives have been wrecked with these horrible laws in effect. Will these people whose rights have been violated ever be compensated for their governments enforcement of these broken laws? No. They will receive a “My bad!” and then be left tot recover from having their life destroyed by an illegal law.
The next president will most likely have the chance to nominate 2 or 3 Supreme Court Judges. The McCain camp is against Gay Rights which is very strongly a civil rights issue which he is against from a puritanical and ultra-conservative (save me some votes) standpoint. This way of thinking is one of the greatest problems with the Republical Party – Conservative Christian Religionism is their hidden mantra.
McCain will appoint judges that will enforce a close-minded backwards-traditional mindset and in an attempt to crush all of cultural progress out of fear, as well as crushing our civil rights in the process.
I have been working slavishly for the past few months on a business plan for a Yoga Studio that Tanya and I want to start in the Baraboo area. Writing a business plan has been a lot of work and a lot of research,
and, wow, does my head hurt. =) The hardest part of writing it is the financial projections. A lot of problem with this step is attempting to pull realistic numbers out of my but. I have not found a place where good statistics can be found for student attendance projections for Yoga Studio start-ups. On the plus side we have finally decided on a name for the studio. Yea!
We have found the perfect building, now it is just a matter of getting the financing for it. We are trying to find a way to raise a +/- $20,000 and then we can start our dream.
We may have to lease first and then take the time to either raise the money to purchase the building or show that our studio can be quite successful so that the banks do not have to worry about repayment.
If there is anyone out there that is interested in helping us or investing in a Yoga Studio let us know.
