Mole's Progressive Democrat

The Progressive Democrat Newsletter grew out of the frustration of the 2004 election. Originally intended for New York City progressives, its readership is now national. For anyone who wants to be alerted by email whenever this newsletter is updated (usually weekly), please send your email address and let me know what state you live in (so I can keep track of my readership).

    Democrat Tom Periello on Keith Olbermann: "We Need to Fight for the Working and Middle Class"

    Tom Perriello endorsed by Veterans of Foreign Wars: (from the Danville Register & Bee)

    More than a dozen veterans from the Danville chapter of the VFW were on hand to deliver the endorsement at the Danville/Pittsylvania Veterans Memorial inDanville. The decision was based on Perriello’s strong support for veteran’s affairs, including expanding health care and economic benefits for them, according to the VFW.

    Perriello is campaigning for re-election in 5th District against state senator Robert Hurt, of Chatham and Jeff Clark, of Danville.

    The small event started off with a brief introduction from U.S. Navy veteran Kevin Cramton, of Danville, who emphasized Perriello’s accessibility.

    “To me, he’s for us,” Cramton said in an interview. “He could have hid up in Washington, but he’s been here talking to us.”

    Here are some biodiesel stations in Charlottesville. Biodiesel is less polluting and has a smaller carbon footprint than regular diesel, and is produced right here in the USA. Biodiesel can be used in almost any diesel engine. Up to B20 (a 20 percent blend) any diesel engine, whether car or 18 wheeler or whatever, can use it. Above B20 some older engines may have problems, but newer engines should be ok.
