Death Methos

Sen. Clinton supporters (of which I am one), don't vote angry, vote smart. So she's a woman. So what? Know her record!:

From Rodger Schlickeisen: Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund

Dear Terrie,

A few hours ago, the news broke that Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has been selected by Sen. John McCain as the vice presidential candidate for the Republican ticket.

As a Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund supporter, you are no doubt aware of Governor Palin’s dismal record, from her staunch support for special interests and Big Oil to her terrible assault on wolves and other wildlife.

As much of the nation wonders just who Sarah Palin is, I wanted to pass along my statement that I've just released.

Please read it and pass it along to everyone you know.

Thanks for your continued support,

Shocking Choice by John McCain

WASHINGTON-- Senator John McCain just announced his choice for running mate: Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska. To follow is a statement by Rodger Schlickeisen, president of Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund.

“Senator McCain’s choice for a running mate is beyond belief. By choosing Sarah Palin, McCain has clearly made a decision to continue the Bush legacy of destructive environmental policies.

“Sarah Palin, whose husband works for BP (formerly British Petroleum), has repeatedly put special interests first when it comes to the environment. In her scant two years as governor, she has lobbied aggressively to open up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to drilling, pushed for more drilling off of Alaska’s coasts, and put special interests above science. Ms. Palin has made it clear through her actions that she is unwilling to do even as much as the Bush administration to address the impacts of global warming. Her most recent effort has been to sue the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to remove the polar bear from the endangered species list, putting Big Oil before sound science. As unbelievable as this may sound, this actually puts her to the right of the Bush administration.

“This is Senator McCain’s first significant choice in building his executive team and it’s a bad one. It has to raise serious doubts in the minds of voters about John McCain’s commitment to conservation, to addressing the impacts of global warming and to ensuring our country ends its dependency on oil.”


The Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund ( provides a powerful voice in Washington to Americans who value our conservation heritage. Through grassroots lobbying, issue advocacy and political campaigns, the Action Fund champions those laws and lawmakers that protect wildlife and wild places while working against those that do them harm.

Subject: [TuscanyStudios] Plea for help!

Hi Guys - well, we find ourselves in the situation where we might need
to evacuate because of Hurricane Gustav. We're hoping this won't be
the case, but will make a decision on Sunday/Monday depending on the
forcasted landfall.
Our problem is that we have just recently moved here and do not know
many people in the area.
I will need to evacuate with my 2 horses, 4 dogs and 3 cats (as well
as 2 kids, hubby and a dwarf rabbit!)
We live now in Orange, Texas which is right on the TX/LA
border...about 1-2 hours East of Houston.
We are desperately looking for someone who would be able to take my
horses in - probably North of here - in the Dallas/Tyler area ?...or
even in the Shreveport LA area?
The dogs and cats can stay in the truck but I am totally panicked
about heading North with no place to let my horses out of the trailer.
If you have space and would be willing to take them in (or know of
someone who might be able to help us) until this all blows over,
*please* drop me a line at tuscanystudios (at)

Please feel free to pass this on to anyone you think may be able to
help us.
My 2 horses are a 3yr old Arabian gelding and a 9 yr old Arabian mare.
Both are up to date on their shots and Coggins and are relatively sane :-)

Hopefully it won't even be an issue and it will miss us this time, but
I'd feel alot more confident if we had somewhere to take the horses
out of danger if the need arises.

Many many thanks for your help,
Kate Schick
