A View from Alaska

A wonderful review of Sarah Palin's accomplishments as Governor of Alaska can be found in an email that was written and circulated by Dewey Whetsell. It can be read in two parts below:

Part I

Part II

And the People's Cube has a hilarious fact check of Palin's book. Enjoy...

Going Rogue

I broke down and bought the book today, and I'm already thoroughly enjoying it.

UPDATE: Once I started reading, I was unable to put the book down...simply riveting. I had it finished in two days. Sarah has put together a marvelous, inspirational, upbeat biography that also shows her endearing sense of humor and tenacity to stay the path of integrity when so many other politicians cave to political corruption.

About half way through, ever the skeptic, I started surfing the net for fact checkers on the publication, but found that relatively very little has been challenged. Some of the issues with the book can be written off after actually reading it, others would require Sarah to address particular issues. But, honestly, after reading this book, her accomplishments so strongly overpower the few questionable issues that have been released about her bio.

Truth be told, this past year has been a struggle both financially and mentally for our family due to the recession. Sarah has me fired up again...I'm not content to cry in my soup anymore. Time to stand up, brush off, and get it in gear. The economic collapse isn't the fault of one particular political group, but something that both liberals and conservatives have contributed to. It's due, in large part, to corruption within our government as well as a government that has becoming increasingly toooo involved in our lives. It's also our duty to become more involved and aware of governmental issues rather than sit back and let the powers that be run our lives while believing we can't make a difference. We CAN.

I had my doubts about Sarah due to the intense negative media coverage about her, but, in the book, she has systematically ruled out every one of the bogus claims that were made about her, and she does it with a smile. Gotta appreciate that.

The book is a *must* read for everyone...

Dawkins chooses Christian cuties for his Ad

The two children chosen to front Richard Dawkins’s latest assault on God could not look more free of the misery he associates with religious baggage. With the slogan “Please don’t label me. Let me grow up and choose for myself”, the youngsters with broad grins seem to be the perfect advertisement for the new atheism being promoted by Professor Dawkins and the British Humanist Association.

Except that they are about as far from atheism as it is possible to be. The Times can reveal that Charlotte, 8, and Ollie, 7, are from one of the country’s most devout Christian families.

Their father, Brad Mason, is something of a celebrity within evangelical circles as the drummer for the popular Christian musician Noel Richards. Now a web designer and photographer, Mr Mason has been supplementing his income for years by providing photographs to agencies who sell them on to newspapers and advertising campaigns.

He said: “It is quite funny, because obviously they were searching for images of children that looked happy and free. They happened to choose children who are Christian. It is ironic. The humanists obviously did not know the background of these children.”

He said that the children’s Christianity had shone through. “Obviously there is something in their faces which is different. So they judged that they were happy and free without knowing that they are Christians. That is quite a compliment. I reckon it shows we have brought up our children in a good way and that they are happy.”

Gerald Coates, the leader of the Pioneer network of churches, which Mr Mason and his family used to attend before they moved to Dorset, said: “I think it is hilarious that the happy and liberated children on the atheist poster are in fact Christian.”

The British Humanist Association said that it did not matter whether the children were Christians. “That’s one of the points of our campaign,” said Andrew Copson, the association’s education director. “People who criticise us for saying that children raised in religious families won’t be happy, or that no child should have any contact with religion, should take the time to read the adverts.

Amazingly, SNL nails it...

The Wilding of Sarah Palin

Is it true that the left is the way to lean when one is anxious to further women's rights? We've seen that is not the case when it comes to the left's actions toward Sarah Palin. Their true colors have come out in spades.

Here is an article for thought written by a women who has broken away from the Democrats...

Like most feminists, it was a no brainer to become a Democrat. Liberal men, not conservatives, were the ones devoted to women's issues. They marched at my side in support of abortion rights. They were enthusiastic about women succeeding in the workplace.

As time went on, I had many experiences that should have made me rethink my certainty. But I remained nestled in cognitive dissonance -- therapy jargon for not wanting to see what I didn't want to see.

One clue: the miscreants who were brutalizing me didn't exactly look Reagan-esque. In middle and high schools, they were minority kids enraged about forced busing. On the streets of New York City and Berkeley, they were derelicts and hoodlums.

Another red flag: while liberal men did indeed hold up those picket signs, they didn't do anything else to protect me. In fact, their social programs enabled bad behavior and bred chaos in urban America. And when I was accosted by thugs, those leftist men were missing in action.

What else should have tipped me off? Perhaps the fact that so many men in ultra left Berkeley are sleaze bags. Rarely a week goes by that I don't hear stories from my young female clients about middle aged men preying on them. With the rationale of moral relativism, these creeps feel they can do anything they please.


Then along came Sarah, and the attacks became particularly heinous. And I realized something even more chilling about the Left. Leftists not only sacrifice and disrespect women.

It's far worse than that: many are perpetuators.

The Left's behavior towards Palin is not politics as usual. By their laser focus on her body and her sexuality, leftists are defiling her.

They are wilding her. And they do this with the full knowledge and complicity of the White House.

The Left has declared war on Palin because she threatens their existence. Democrats need women dependent and scared so that women, like blacks, will vote for liberals.

A strong, self sufficient woman, Palin eschews their protection. Drop her off in the Alaskan bush, and she'll survive just fine, thank you very much. Palin doesn't need or want anything from liberals, not hate crimes legislation that coddles her, not abortion, which she abhors.

Palin is a woman of deep and abiding faith. She takes no marching orders from messiah like wannabes, like Obama.

And so the Left must try to destroy her. And they are doing this in the most malicious of ways:

By symbolically raping her.

Just like a perpetuator, they dehumanize her by objectifying her body. They undress her with their eyes.

They turn her into a piece of ass.

Liberals do this by calling her a c___t, ogling her legs, demeaning her with names like "sexy flight attendant," and "Trailer Park Barbie," and exposing her flesh on the cover of Newsweek.

And from The Atlantic Magazine's Andrew Sullivan: "Sarah Palin's vagina is the font of all evil in the galaxy."

Nothing is off limits, not actress Sandra Bernhard's wish that Palin be gang raped or the sexualizing of Palin's daughters.

Climate change belief given same legal status as religion

This is priceless...

An executive has won the right to sue his employer on the basis that he was unfairly dismissed for his green views after a judge ruled that environmentalism had the same weight in law as religious and philosophical beliefs.

In a landmark ruling, Mr Justice Michael Burton said that "a belief in man-made climate change ... is capable, if genuinely held, of being a philosophical belief for the purpose of the 2003 Religion and Belief Regulations".

The ruling could open the door for employees to sue their companies for failing to account for their green lifestyles, such as providing recycling facilities or offering low-carbon travel.

Eh...the global warming hysteria is going down just like Darwin's materialistic just so stories about origins. I've talked to several hard core liberals who are *quickly* backing away from their previous support for Al Gore's money making endeavor.
