I guess I never did introduce myself. I'm Ev or Evelyn and I live in FL - the land of the going to ruin our state governor Rick Scott and the horrid Senator Rubio Marco - 1st time senator the GOP wants to be on their ticket to gather Latino vote.

All of my life I have brought up by parents who are pro union, pro SS, pro environment. My brother and I learned at a very early age - way before Earth Day was thought of - to do our part to save our natural resources and electricity. My mother was a teacher and taught us well. My nephew is the director for Environmental Change and Security Project in DC. He is teaching a class in Montery as I type. All of this because of our mother's teachings.
My dad worked for a local road department. He had a heart attack and was paid a full day's wages - nothing else! Thank goodness my mon had a job. I have been pro union ever since and that was when I had just turned 11.
www.youtube.com/watch?v=QbuyzYtGtIA If you wish to see more on my nephew.

Because of most of my beliefs, I am considered too liberal - and tooo stupid to be a GOP.
Heh! I'm so glad I am not!!

Hi, team. I'm not new to Spark, but I'm new to this team; just joined because I think us libs should all band together as much as we can! So I joined up. BTW, I think a Yellow Dog democrat generally refers to someone who votes a straight democratic ticket; the term allegedly was first used in the 1800's by someone who said he'd "sooner vote for a yellow dog than vote for that man" (the "man" in question being Abraham Lincoln. It's kind of astounding to think that Lincoln was not a democrat. Times have indeed changed!)

Hi Karon, good to see you here.

By the way, what is a Yellow Dog Democrat? I've heard us (Democrats) called a lot of things, but not Yellow Dog!

You don't stop playing because you grow 0LD; you grow old because you stop PLAYING.

Hello, Team.

My name is Shelis and I am from the red, red state of Kentucky. I formally apologize on behalf of the liberals in my state for Rand Paul.

I've checked out of politics a bit, this last year had me pretty worked up, but I still read the news and I am always happy to be surrounded by my own kind. Hopefully by the time volunteering for 2012 starts up I'll be ready to get back in there.

Hi team! Glad to find you. I'm brand new to Spark. I am 48 years old, have 15 pounds to lose and am ready to do it. I lost it before and kept it off for years, but gained it back while dealing with the extended illness and passing of my mother. Now it is time to take care of myself and get back into a healthful fitness routine. I haven't eaten meat or dairy other than fish for 25 years, no artificial sweeteners whatsoever and very limited refined/processed foods, so my diet is good other than portion sizes. I'm hopeful if I focus on portion/calorie intake and bumping up my activity level, the extra pounds should come off...

Hi, I'm new to this team but not to Spark. I joined Spark in 2008 and lost 60 pounds, but got complacent, stopped posting and documenting my food and fitness, and have gained 20 pounds! I'm so disappointed in myself, but I'm not going to waste time beating myself up, just jump back on the wagon. I just found this team, and it's so nice to be able to vent. So many of my friends are conservative, and I don't want to argue and bicker, so like I said, it's good to find someone I can talk to. I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you.

You don't stop playing because you grow 0LD; you grow old because you stop PLAYING.

Returning, again. : )
I belonged to this group a couple of years ago, and enjoyed it - and the weight I lost : ) - however, though it's likely an oft-heard excuse, and I blame no one else except me for my regaining of the weight, I did. Blech.

Had a myriad of health issues, felt sorry for myself, stopped working out, stopped watching what I was eating - boom. D ' oh to me - if you don't stay careful and diligent, what did I think was gonna happen?!?? And, it did. Hopefully, a good part of the health issues have been taken care of - we'll see, I guess : ) - and they should be no excuse for my now-non-healthiness, because it would have made things easier, methinks.

Anyhow, here I am again - talking as much - which is usually too much - and mouthy as usual - and sure hoping my couple of years of aging has taught me something. We'll see! Anyhow, hi, and I look forward to all of this, yet again! emoticon

I just returned from my local Democratic club meeting and was checking my usual teams when I wondered if there was a political team for me. Bingo! It took a few search tries, but I think I've arrived. I was born a Democrat, though I once voted for a Republican, I think it was in 1980. I can't remember quite why but I'm sure I had a good reason at the time.

I've been a liberal all my adult life except when my kids were young and impressionable and I tried to bluff 'em. They saw right through me and grew up liberal and imagine that (!) - they are educated, have no illegitimate children, don't use drugs, married, gainfully employed...
My husband loves MSNBC and the crew so I thought HE'd be so proud of me joining this team. When I told him he was perusing the refrigerator and said "How about joining the lets clean out the refrigerator team"! Funny man!
Naturally I voted for Obama in the last election and believe he is a christian. But you know what? I wouldn't care if he wasn't!
Blue enough for you guys?

Hello, Democrats! I'm new to SparkPeople, and I went looking for a few teams to join- this one looks perfect for me! I'm a college student and an active member of my campus's College Democrats group, and I can't wait to start campaigning for the fall 2010 elections...and if I can lose some weight and get myself in shape, all the better for long days on my feet canvassing! I'm looking forward to getting to know you guys and participating in some good discussions.

Hello all, I've been MIA for quite a while and have missed all the banter! I hope you're all doing well. I recently went on HCG and what a success it is. I've lost 21 lbs and am 4 lbs from my goal. Sooo glad I found it.
Cheers!
p.s. Here's hoping to see prop 8 properly buried...

Don't be upset with the results you didn't get from the work you didn't do.
You're creating your future right now, what do you want it to look like?

(((Bob))), I never had ill feelings toward you. I put it to the rest of the team. Like you, I will abide by their decision. Why don't you start a new thread (and tell them you have my blessing to do so) with your suggestion?

Hello ladies and Gentlemen.

I come bearing a gift for the compassionate LadyIrish317, having known her from another thread.

As I am a Conservative (I heard those boos and catcalls) and I know that it is strange that a Conservative would even want to visit a team of Liberals, with your permission I am here to propose a debate on current political issues, using only facts and keeping emotions and name calling out of the discussion. I promise not to scream in all-caps.

Since I am who I am and believe the way I do, I don't think it would be polite to snoop on any of your existing threads. If I am invited, I will gladly join and speak to the topic.

I promise on my honor to stay on this thread and wait for your decision. Even though LadyIrish317 and I found ourselves at odds on some issues on the other team, I feel fairly certain that neither of us harbors ill feelings. Well, I don't and hope she doesn't either.

I admired her compassion and caring on the team I started (Dealing with Depression) and hope she will agree to my proposal - after consulting the many team members you have.

If y'all vote "thumbs down", I will leave the team and "darken your door" no longer.

Thanks for your consideration,

Bob

Glad to hear business is good for you. My boss' husband is a roofer and the way the weather is here in California he can't BUY a job.

We're not going anywhere. Looking forward to hearing from you again when you get a breather.

With the high winds and hail damage, my roofing company has been jumping every which way. Don't get me wrong, busy is good.

But you have to give your brain a day off once in a while in order to stay sane.

We are scheduled four weeks out and have people on a waiting list (I don't feel I can focus my attention on my customers if I get out more than four weeks, but I will go and talk to potential customers - so they can have the choice of waiting for us or getting another company to do their work.

I didn't really plan on doing it this year, but I am seriously thinking I should bring on a second sub-contractor.

I'm a licensed, certified roofing appraiser also, and in between sales calls, I have been doing appraisals all over the county for State Farm, American Family and USAA. The insurance companies pay me $300 for each appraisal, so that is a definitely good addition to my company coffers. $300 an hour is good work when you can get it.

Anyway, I'm just signing in to say I hope I'll have a couple of days to get caught up on how things are going in the political world. I haven't looked at a newspaper, read anything on-line or even listened to the news in over four weeks.

Welcome aboard!

I feel your pain. I live in California, which is one of the bluest states in the Union with a depressing propensity for electing Republican governors.

Hi I'm Kerry and I was SO fired up to see this team! While I live just outside of Chicago which of course is very liberal, I am in one of the most conservative counties in Illinois...ew emoticon So it is always my mission to find people with a similiar philosophy! I know that this site is about weight loss and not politics, but what the heck...we can all be a bunch of skinny liberals! emoticon

Yes and I helped although I am surrounded by old fuddy duddies who are about as progressive as cave men.

All of that is forgotten since Florida went blue for Obama in 2008. Welcome to the team!

I rejoiced seeing the name of this team as I feel as if I am all alone in the brassy, cut-throat world of politics. I need someone to go to who might agree with me!!!! Thanks!
Oh, I am from Georgia but have lived in Florida for 36 years and I was not responsible for the hanging chads or G. Bush's election.
