I Knew I Should Have Made a Money Contribution!

For me, being on the enemies list of the lavender mafia would be a welcomed opportunity to widely expose these people as the ideological fascists that they are. (h/t)
In addition to protests, gay activists have begun publishing lists online exposing individuals and organizations who have donated money in support of Proposition 8. On, individuals who gave money toward Proposition 8 are publicized, with readers urged not to patronize their businesses or services. The list of donors was culled from data on, which follows all contributions of over $1,000 and all contributions of over $100 given before October 17. Dentists, accountants, veterinarians and the like who gave a few thousand dollars to the cause are listed alongside major donors like the Container Supply Co., Inc. of Garden Grove, Calif., which gave $250,000. "Anyone who steps into a political fight aimed at taking away fundamental rights from fellow citizens opens themselves up to criticism," said Wolfson. "The First Amendment gives them the right of freedom of speech and to support political views, but people also have the right to criticize them."

Even before the passage of Proposition 8, Californians Against Hate compiled and published a "dishonor roll" of those individuals, along with their company affiliations, who gave $5,000 or more towards supporting the measure. Telephone numbers and Web sites were added along with commentary about some of the larger donors to public information obtained through the California Secretary of State's Office. "My goal was to make it socially unacceptable to give huge amounts of money to take away the rights of one particular group, a minority group," says Fred Karger, a retired political consultant and founder of Californians Against Hate. "I wanted to make the public aware of who these people are and how much they're giving and then they could make a decision as to whether or not they want to patronize their businesses."

The negative publicity is having effects on both companies and individuals. Scott Eckern, artistic director of the California Musical Theatre in Sacramento, whose $1,000 donation was listed on ElectionTrack, chose to resign from his post this week to protect the theater from public criticism. Karger says a "soft boycott" they started against Bolthouse Farms, which gave $100,000 to Proposition 8, was dropped after he reached a settlement with the company. Bolthouse Farms was to give an equal amount of money to gay political causes. The amount ultimately equaled $110,000.

Aide to Barbara Boxer Arrested for Kiddie Porn

Dollars to donuts this sick pervert undoubtedly shared his leftist boss's opposition to Proposition 8. Not that there's necessarily a direct correlation between opposing a traditional definition of marriage and a disordered love for kiddie porn, but when the basis of each arises solely from thinking with one's libido, the correlation is unmistakable.

Stop Calling It a Ban

You know, I wish people, i.e., the supposedly objective MSM (snort!), would stop calling a legally codified definition of marriage as a "ban" on anything. Nothing is per se being outlawed.


I honestly don't want to think the worst of Barry, but when he's proposing stuff which evoke troubling images of similar endeavors from not so very long ago, it isn't easy. (h/t)

p.s. Rahm Emmanuel is, or will be, Obama's Chief of Staff.

Ninth Circuit Gets Punk'd by SCOTUS...Again

This time in the case of Winter v. Natural Resources Defense Council, a case involving the Navy's sonar program. Also rolled by the SCOTUS in this case is the trial judge, Florence Marie Cooper, an otherwise unimpressive Clinton appointee who decided that dubious, i.e., unproven, environmentalist claims were a lot more important than our country's national security.

Chuck DeVore for U.S. Senate 2010

He's currently a California State Assemblyman who represents my district in Orange County. Go here for his campaign website.

Whether DeVore has a shot at beating the far left Barbara Boxer in two years, much less winning the State Republican Party nomination, remains to be seen. It'll be an uphill battle for sure, if only because DeVore has almost no name recognition outside of Orange County. But he has a couple of years to work on it, and with a little help of expected incompetency from a Democrat controlled Congress and White House, you just never know. It's why you play the game.

Just in Time for Christmas

If I didn't think it would be perceived as me having ODS, I'd buy one and wear it for the irony.

Is it Plausible Chris Matthews is an Idiot?

Absolutely. But in this case, his mistaken reference to Africa as a country rather than a continent was clearly a slip of the tongue, and not something he believes to be true. Be nice if Matthews gave the same benefit of the doubt to Sarah Palin and the anonymous smears that have made against her. Don't hold your breath on that happening.

You Suck, Arnold!

Schwarzenegger gives encouragement to anti-Prop. 8 goons.
In past statements, he has said he personally believes marriage should be between a man and a woman and has rejected legislation authorizing same-sex marriage. Yet he has also said he would not care if same-sex marriage were legal, saying he believed that such an important societal issue should be determined by the voters or the courts.

Following that position, he publicly opposed Proposition 8, which amends the state Constitution to declare that “only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.”

Today, Schwarzenegger urged backers of gay marriage to follow the lesson he learned as a bodybuilder trying to lift weights that were too heavy for him at first. “I learned that you should never ever give up. . . . They should never give up. They should be on it and on it until they get it done.”
I always knew Arnold was a RINO, which is why I never voted for him. And damn the California Republican Party for supporting this squish when he ran for reelection back in 2006.

Obama is America's First Affirmative Action Elected President

Prevailing pop culture and the sentiments of his supporters confirm it.
