Lou Dobbs Leaving CNN

Here is the text of Lou Dobb's statement that he is leaving CNN.

....engage in constructive problem solving as well as to contribute positively to the great understanding of the issues of our day. And to continue to do so in the most honest and direct language possible.

Meet Wynona Spears

Wynona is an immigrant from Belize, once undocumented, whose son served twice in Iraq. Wynona reminds us that many, many people serving in Iraq are native US citizens who are children of undocumented residents, or are themselves undocumented and are serving and dying in order to gain expedited citizenship.

Wynona is currently riding on the dream train. You can get on board too (virtually speaking).

Watch her on YouTube.
