Wondering what Hillary thinks of the standoff? So far the only thing she’s said is that both sides need to come together to find a solution. Really? Our Revolution is suggesting she take a much different approach. To read the letter they are sending her and to add your name to it if you agree click here.

    Thanks for all of this information Roldo. In the section entitled “Wondering what Hillary thinks of the standoff?”, the link is missing to get involved.

      Good morning Paul,

      First, thank you for stopping in, for reading and, most importantly, for taking the time to write a comment. We build our communities with our conversations.

      Second, thanks for the catch. I’ve fixed the link.

      Third, Have Coffee Will Write is my blog and, while I’m pleased and honored to host Roldo’s posts, this notice was posted by me.

      Do all you can to make today a better day,
