“Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm”- Lincoln.

In the political context, acting in its simplest form is exercising the most precious right one has in a democratic society; the right to vote. In a more dynamic interpretation, to Act Right is to find a way to help. Technology may have revolutionized the flow of information, but Tip O’Neil’s words ring as true today as when he uttered them in the 1980′s; “All politics are local.” If you are concerned about where the United States is headed, don’t wait for others to solve the problem. First Think, then Act!

Opine Needles speaks frequently of our uniquely American philanthropic orientation. No other people give as generously as do Americans. This too comprises part of what we mean when we say “Act Right”.

We are proud to be involved with “I Am Waters”, a Foundation committed to delivering both spiritual and actual hydration to America’s large homeless population. As a demonstration of our commitment to this worthy cause, we will be donating a portion of our book’s (Opine Needles- A Blogger’s Journey Through the Obama Years) net proceeds to I Am Waters.
