“Not One Candidate”

September 26, 2011 Leave a comment

The DNC released “Not One Candidate,” today.  It’s a video that calls attention to the stunning lack of leadership that the current GOP nomination candidates have exhibited in recent debates.  It’s pretty disgusting and it’s nice to see the DNC using this moment to highlight such irresponsible behavior. I’m happy to see the GOP implode, but I also think the antics that have been playing out at the last three debates must not be overlooked.

Netroots Nation and Me

July 21, 2010 2 comments

I’ve been a busy traveler these past couple of weeks and I’m a bit exhausted from having worked at the annual NCLR conference in San Antonio.

Now, I’m off to the Netroots Nation 2010 conference in Las Vegas. This is really a treat for me and I’m eternally thankful to Mike Rogers and his National Blogger and Citizen Journalist Initiative and another pair of great friends who I’ll be working with while in Vegas.

This is going to be my first Netroots Nation conference and I’m super psyched about it. First off, I’m looking forward to storming Las Vegas with a few thousand fellow progressives and meeting some new friends.

Mostly, though, I’m looking forward to jumpstarting my writing, which has been sorely lacking these days.

Part of that lack in content has to do with what Jim and I have been dealing with these days, not the least of which is a dismal job situation that has soured both of our moods for quite some time.

We’ve also been grappling with one of the worst episodes Jim has ever dealt with and being a caregiver for him has sort of zapped my energy. It is exhausting and I can only imagine how hard it must be for him, and still, I would not trade living with and being his partner for antyhing. We have been through so much together and I’m glad that I’ve been able to be around for him when he needs it the most. There is so much misunderstanding of mental health and I’ve been with him on those days when it seemed like nobody cared about what he was going through. It must be a lonely place sometimes, but at least I’ve been around to see him through it.

So, my hope is that going to Netroots will provide the boost I need to get back to the craft I love so dearly and which I think could use improvement. You should expect to see more posts on this space and on Bilerico.com from myself and other Bilerico Projectors this week.

With that, I’m off to Netroots to enjoy what is arguably one of the best conferences around. Seriously, check out the agenda, even if you’re not going. It should entice you to go next year.

So, hasta luego. The next time you hear from me, I’ll be in Vegas, baby!
