R.I.P. Teddy Kennedy You will be missed!

Post by Jennifer » Wed Aug 26, 2009 10:25 am

This will make you weep...



This is the cause of my life. It is a key reason that I defied my illness last summer to speak at the Democratic convention in Denver—to support Barack Obama, but also to make sure, as I said, "that we will break the old gridlock and guarantee that every American...will have decent, quality health care as a fundamental right and not just a privilege." For four decades I have carried this cause—from the floor of the United States Senate to every part of this country. It has never been merely a question of policy; it goes to the heart of my belief in a just society. Now the issue has more meaning for me—and more urgency—than ever before. But it's always been deeply personal, because the importance of health care has been a recurrent lesson throughout most of my 77 years. — Ted Kennedy

Yes, weeping for him, weeping for this country...and how it has been hijacked by the right wing moronic fundamentalists, neocons, republicans. :(

Jennifer,
Had to revisit this after last nights speech
I went to Zimbabwe. I know how white people feel in America now; relaxed! Cause when I heard the police car I knew they weren't coming after me!

bingolong,

Kennedy's letter to Pope made me cry. I finally looked in the Mary Jo Kopechne case, and boy was I fuming about all the talk about it. My opinion: Kennedy was in shock after car became submerged and recover Mary Jo, who was not a hoe, which was/is implied. He had also just lost his brother to an unreal tragedy, now someone died while with him.

the way the haters talked about it: Kennedy hit it drunk, car went off bridge, and he left her. how many would know how to rescue someone merged under water while you too are submerged under water. 8-o it was a tragic accident which caused Kennedy regret his entire life and which overshadowed his many accomplishments, long after he paid for the mistake of leaving an accident.

sad I had to find out more about him AFTER his death. but if not for the "bitter party of rage" wouldn't have looked up case.
