This movement has GROWN BIG TIME- statewide. Our ranks in Thurston have grown so much and with such high octane individuals that I've been focused mainly with the local peeps while keeping occasional tabs with the other leaders statewide from the earlier years of this movement. While I've been at the grindstone locally, our little movement went and got all growed up!
Bear in mind- none of us make a cent off of any energy we spend on this effort.
It's all about making sure kids have access to 2 good parents.
That is why I was ecstatic to hear that local radio host BJ Shea (who has been a good friend to the Shared Parenting fight) took a call from a dad to talk about this issue during an interview with GOP candidate for Governor Dino Rossi.
Kudos to Greg Howe from TOP (The Other Parent) for getting in to educate Dino on this issue earlier this year. It should be noted that while Shared Parenting advocates are on both sides of the fence politically- they are 100% for Dino after the total screwing we've gotten under Gregoire on this and other father's rights issues for the past 4 years.

We too are a sovereign nation and I'm not in the mood for subsidizing another sovereign nation's donations to Gregoire.

Madonna is worth an estimated $850 million. Whatever one thought of her music and her racy image, she is in many ways the model of the empowered modern woman--a successful businesswoman who rose from nowhere to become rich and famous.
She has her own career, has flitted in and out of countless romantic relationships with both men and women at her own choosing, has had kids and adopted them at her own choosing, done admirable charity work, and in 2000 chose to marry English filmmaker Guy Ritchie.
Now, eight years later, guess what? She's a victim.

Recently, we reported that the North Thurston School District was spending a whole week indoctrinating junior high kids on Islamo Fascism under the Washington School's guise of Diversity. Well people, wake up, here is where that kind of stupidity leads. Notice the amount of Burkas and headscarves you see in our communities now? They are coming and they want your head.

The speech was sponsored by the Hudson Institute on September 25.
Thank you very much for inviting me. Great to be at the Four Seasons. I come from a country that has one season only: a rainy season that starts January 1st and ends December 31st. When we have three sunny days in a row, the government declares a national emergency. So Four Seasons, that's new to me.
It's great to be in
I come to
My short lecture consists of 4 parts.
First I will describe the situation on the ground in
But in all of these cities, sometimes a few blocks away from your tourist destination, there is another world, a world very few visitors see - and one that does not appear in your tourist guidebook. It is the world of the parallel society created by Muslim mass-migration. All throughout
There are now thousands of mosques throughout
Many European cities are already one-quarter Muslim: just take
A total of fifty-four million Muslims now live in
Now these are just numbers. And the numbers would not be threatening if the Muslim-immigrants had a strong desire to assimilate. But there are few signs of that. The
Muslims demand what they call 'respect'. And this is how we give them respect. Our elites are willing to give in. To give up. In my own country we have gone from calls by one cabinet member to turn Muslim holidays into official state holidays, to statements by another cabinet member, that Islam is part of Dutch culture, to an affirmation by the Christian-Democratic attorney general that he is willing to accept sharia in the
Muslim demands are supported by unlawful behaviour, ranging from petty crimes and random violence, for example against ambulance workers and bus drivers, to small-scale riots.
Much of this street violence I mentioned is directed exclusively against non-Muslims, forcing many native people to leave their neighbourhoods, their cities, their countries.
Politicians shy away from taking a stand against this creeping sharia. They believe in the equality of all cultures. Moreover, on a mundane level, Muslims are now a swing vote not to be ignored.
Our many problems with Islam cannot be explained by poverty, repression or the European colonial past, as the Left claims. Nor does it have anything to do with Palestinians or American troops in
Allow me to give you a brief Islam 101. The first thing you need to know about Islam is the importance of the book of the Quran. The Quran is Allah's personal word, revealed by an angel to Mohammed, the prophet. This is where the trouble starts. Every word in the Quran is Allah's word and therefore not open to discussion or interpretation. It is valid for every Muslim and for all times. Therefore, there is no such a thing as moderate Islam. Sure, there are a lot of moderate Muslims. But a moderate Islam is non-existent.
The Quran calls for hatred, violence, submission, murder, and terrorism. The Quran calls for Muslims to kill non-Muslims, to terrorize non-Muslims and to fulfil their duty to wage war: violent jihad. Jihad is a duty for every Muslim, Islam is to rule the world - by the sword. The Quran is clearly anti-Semitic, describing Jews as monkeys and pigs.
The second thing you need to know is the importance of Mohammed the prophet. His behaviour is an example to all Muslims and cannot be criticized.Now, if Mohammed had been a man of peace, let us say like Ghandi and Mother Theresa wrapped in one, there would be no problem. But Mohammed was a warlord, a mass murderer, a pedophile, and had several marriages - at the same time. Islamic tradition tells us how he fought in battles, how he had his enemies murdered and even had prisoners of war executed. Mohammed himself slaughtered the Jewish tribe of Banu Qurayza. He advised on matters of slavery, but never advised to liberate slaves. Islam has no other morality than the advancement of Islam. If it is good for Islam, it is good. If it is bad for Islam, it is bad. There is no gray area or other side.
Quran as Allah's own word and Mohammed as the perfect man are the two most important facets of Islam. Let no one fool you about Islam being a religion. Sure, it has a god, and a here-after, and 72 virgins. But in its essence Islam is a political ideology. It is a system that lays down detailed rules for society and the life of every person. Islam wants to dictate every aspect of life. Islam means 'submission'. Islam is not compatible with freedom and democracy, because what it strives for is sharia. If you want to compare Islam to anything, compare it to communism or national-socialism, these are all totalitarian ideologies.
This is what you need to know about Islam, in order to understand what is going on in
Which brings me to my movie, Fitna.
I am a lawmaker, and not a movie maker. But I felt I had the moral duty to educate about Islam. The duty to make clear that the Quran stands at the heart of what some people call terrorism but is in reality jihad. I wanted to show that the problems of Islam are at the core of Islam, and do not belong to its fringes.
Now, from the day the plan for my movie was made public, it caused quite a stir, in the
A plethora of legal troubles also followed, and have not ended yet. Currently the state of

Samuel Huntington writes it so aptly: "Islam has bloody borders".
The war against
Many in Europe argue in favor of abandoning
It is very difficult to be an optimist in the face of the growing Islamization of Europe. All the tides are against us. On all fronts we are losing. Demographicallythe momentum is with Islam. Muslim immigration is even a source of pride within ruling liberal parties. Academia, the arts, the media, trade unions, the churches, the business world, the entire political establishment have all converted to thesuicidal theory of multiculturalism. So-called journalists volunteer to label any and all critics of Islamization as a 'right-wing extremists' or 'racists'. The entire establishment has sided with our enemy. Leftists, liberals and Christian-Democrats are now all in bed with Islam.
This is the most painful thing to see: the betrayal by our elites. At this moment in

Over the past years there have been some small, but encouraging, signs of a rebirth of the original European spirit. Maybe the elites turn their backs on freedom, the public does not. In my country, the
Patriotic parties that oppose jihad are growing, against all odds. My own party debuted two years ago, with five percent of the vote. Now it stands at ten percent in the polls. The same is true of all smililary-minded parties in

Dear friends, liberty is the most precious of gifts. My generation never had to fight for this freedom, it was offered to us on a silver platter, by people who fought for it with their lives. All throughout Europe American cemeteries remind us of the young boys who never made it home, and whose memory we cherish. My generation does not own this freedom; we are merely its custodians. We can only hand over this hard won liberty to
This is not the first time our civilization is under threat. We have seen dangers before. We have been betrayed by our elites before. They have sided with our enemies before. And yet, then, freedom prevailed.
These are not times in which to take lessons from appeasement, capitulation, giving away, giving up or giving in. These are not times in which to draw lessons from Mr. Chamberlain. These are times calling us to draw lessons from Mr. Churchill and the words he spoke in 1942:
"Never give in, never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy".

Why do you suppose someone would hock their belongings for private care when Britain has public facilities for free?
Although Britain has a free health care system, private providers offer more comprehensive services for a fee. In the case of nursing homes, state-run facilities are available and cost much less than private ones. But they are more spartan and offer fewer amenities, such as shared rooms and no private TVs.
They're FREE- and worth every penny. Except to those who get soaked paying for them. I'm just giddy for Borat Obambi to take office and save us all, isn't everybody?

Listening to Biden is like listening to a used car dealer- he's so full of crap that you just tune him out. In real life- no one argues with a pathological liar, which is why I think the media never calls him on it- that and they are completely in the tank for Obama.
From what I saw- I think Palin would have done better if her debate prep had been watching about 12 hours of Reagan speeches and debates, followed by another 8 hours of John Wayne movies, then downing two pots of coffee and an energy drink just before taking the stage.
this would have helped (I know- I rent them both on a regular basis)
...like when Gwen tossed the reneg'ging on promises question due to budget (previous post)- the correct answer is "we're not going break any promise- what we are going to promise is to make sure government is smaller"....sadly not one of McCain's running points (Ronulans- please dont pile on).
Also I lost my lunch 10 minutes in and tuned out- but returned to see gay marriage was a topic.... REALLY? PLEASE TELL ME THE PART WHERE GWEN ASKED ABOUT 3rd (and 4th) term abortions!!!!!!!! I'm sure I missed it while I was walking the dogs, right?
If Palin had watched the John Wayne movie- she would have said screw you Gwen- I'll address that right after Biden answers the abortion question...
...and then shoved it back to them that this should be a state issue and not McCain or Obama dictating right/wrong to the country. Liberal or Conservative- you have to love state's rights. That makes me either freaking brilliant or a captain obvious promotion to colonol.
yeah- I know we all still love Palin, but I was really left uninspired by Sarah (and outright nauseated by Biden).
The correct answer was "The budget crunch presents us with the opportunity to make the American people a promise that will be easy to keep, and that's to make government smaller."
Could someone get a bucket? I'm both nauseated and annoyed.
