“EQUALITY NOW!” Except in Accountability: Updated

by lewwaters

Kate Hunt 8By now I am sure most have heard the tale of the alleged persecution of a poor little 19-year old Lesbian down in Sebastian, Florida and how the homophobic forces are out to get her because she was having a consensual sexual affair with another girl in her school.

Well, that is the way her parents have laid it out in social web sites and news media ever since then 18-year old Kaitlyn Hunt was arrested in February, charged with lewd and lascivious battery since the 18-year old chose to engage in a sexual relationship with a 14-year old, well below the Age of Consent in Florida which remains at 16 years of age.

In plain terms, an under-aged minor may not consent to a sexual relationship and even though the consent age slightly differs throughout the country, every state has age of consent laws to protect minors.

Bidding the Boy Scouts of America Goodbye

by lewwaters

Boy Scout 1As a young boy, I was really proud when I became a Cub Scout, then a Weblogs and finally a Boy Scout, rising to Life (I discovered cars & girls that occupied my attention in High School before earning my final merit badge to be an Eagle Scout), Junior Assistant Scoutmaster and enjoyed several years in the organization.

Camping, hunting, caring for the land we camped on and Patriotism are skills learned that have served me well, discipline I learned early serving me during my 8 years active duty in the U.S. Army and tours in Vietnam.

It is an organization that has taught many a young boy skills needed to go on to becoming great leaders of society.

Legislature Announces Enough Votes to Okay Homosexual Marriage

by lewwaters

Seattle Times reporting, “Sen. Mary Margaret Haugen, D-Camano Island, said she supports gay marriage legislation in the Senate — giving proponents the 25 votes needed for passage.”

Four Republican legislators are being reported as signing on to the bill as well. They are Sen. Steve Litzow, Sen. Cheryl Pflug as well as King County councilman Reagan Dunn (who thinks Republicans will elect him as Attorney General), and two House Republicans, Rep. Glenn Anderson and Rep. Maureen Walsh who co-sponsored the house bill.

In the meantime, a $1.5 Billion budget gap, high unemployment and struggling taxpayers take a back seat to legalizing homosexuals to marry.

This blog will not support any Republican who supports this homosexual marriage bill.

Some so called conservatives are expressing it is time that we conservatives “let go” and allow this to pass. What kind of values do you have if you aren’t willing to stand for them?

I am left wondering, where is Kirby Wilbur and the WSRP as these 5 RINO’s abandon the GOP platform in support of this? Is this why the Republican party is falling apart today, values, principals and platforms mean nothing?

Initiative Filed To Redefine Marriage as One man to One Woman

by lewwaters

On the first meeting day of the 2012 legislature, Everett attorney Stephen Pidgeon has filed for an initiative “seeking to clarify the definition of marriage. ”

See proposed document here

Currently, marriage is considered as a “civil contract between a male and a female.” Pidgeon’s initiative would redefine marriage as “between one man and one woman.” Pidgeon, addressing the current strong push from our lame duck governor for homosexual marriage rights says he is concerned legalizing homosexual marriage “will lead to the liberalization of marriage laws to allow for polygamy and other forms of relationships.”

He adds, “We believe this issue is even more volatile than domestic partnerships. The voters should get to vote on it. Let’s see what they think.”

Democratic Sen. Mary Margaret Haugen seems to agree as she says “unwilling to support any gay-marriage bill that didn’t allow a vote of the people.”

Lame duck governor, Christine Gregoire recently came out in full support of homosexual marriage rights, placing it high on her list of priorities, demanding the legislature pass it and have it on her desk within the next 60 days the legislature will be in session. That the state still faces a $1.5 Billion budget gap an a Supreme Court decision saying the state has been derelict in their duty to fully fund education is of little concern as the full court press is on to legalize homosexual marriage rights in the State of Washington.

Bigotry Reigns in the Washington State Legislature

by lewwaters

For all of the cries of “equal rights for all” and “end discrimination” coming out of the Democrat controlled legislature in Washington State, I am surprised, shocked even to realize we actually have a legislature filled with bigots when it comes to civil marriage.

Jim Moeller, Jim Jacks, Tim Probst, Ed Murray, Craig Pridemore, nearly every single Democrat in Olympia falls in that category as they sign on to bills to legitimize same-sex marriage, yet continue to deny civil marriage, or even domestic partnership to other consensual relationships.

Two bills proposed and introduced by Rep. Moeller and Sen. Murray, HB 1963 and SB 5793 are both summarized as, “Ends discrimination in marriage based on gender and sexual orientation in Washington.”

The problem is, they do not “end discrimination” in marriage in Washington as both bills contain language still restricting marriage rights in consensual relationships that do not fit into the narrow definitions of traditional marriage or the new definition proposed by Moeller and Murray.

The Time Has Come To End ALL Discrimination in Marriage

Military Heroes Issue Joint Statement Urging Fight To Reinstate Don’t Ask/Don’t Tell

by lewwaters

By Rees Lloyd (reposted with authors permission)

Comrades, Colleagues and Patriots: Two of America’s greatest living military heroes — Admiral and former U.S. Senator Jeremiah A. Denton (USN, ret.), a P.O.W. for seven years, seven months in Vietnam; and Maj. Gen. Patrick H. Brady (USA, ret.), Medal of Honor recipient (Vietnam) — have issued an urgent joint statement published today by WorldNetDaily.com and its “Whistleblower” magazine, calling on all Americans, and veterans in particular, to take a stand and fight for reinstatement of the “Don’t Ask/Don’t Tell” policy to prevent the transformation of the American military by the creation of a “quad military” (homosexual, heterosexual, bisexual, and transgender).

[Heroes to Congress: Stop destroying military]

Among the most decorated military heroes in American history, Admiral Denton and Gen. Brady, both of whom have appeared as guests on The Victoria Taft Show on KPAM 860, condemn the rushed repeal of DA/DT by the post-election, lame duck 111th Congress of Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and President Obama as a “danger” to the military and to the nation. They urge the newly elected 112th Congress to reinstate DA/DT.

Patty Murray Out of the Closet: Brags of Disdain for Straight Troops

by lewwaters

I have long maintained that Washington State’s senior senator, Patty Murray has no real appreciation of love of our Military, in spite of her public proclamations of just that. Last evening, December 20, 2010, she all but openly admitted her disdain in an email expressing her happiness over her voting to repeal the so-called ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy implemented by former president Bill Clinton in 1993.

Murray’s email said,

“Last week, I proudly cast my vote for legislation to repeal the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (DADT) policy. For far too long, men and women with the courage and commitment to serve our nation have been asked to hide the truth about who they are. This is shameful, it’s bad policy, and it needed to end. In a speech on the Senate floor prior to final passage, I urged my colleagues to repeal this failed policy and told the story of Major Margaret Witt, from Washington state, who was discharged under DADT.”

While Murray’s words are wrapped in gushing praise, she obviously did not bother to actually discuss the issue with front line combat Troops, but relied upon claims of a small segment of people in the Military who knew they would be ousted for declaring their sexuality and did so anyways.

Will Repeal of D.A.D.T. Lead to the Reinstatement of the Draft?

by lewwaters

As all know, the Senate passed the repeal of the controversial Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy implemented by former president Bill Clinton that allowed Gays to serve in the Military, so long as they keep their sexuality to themselves. All that is left now is for Barack Obama, who campaigned on repealing the policy and allowing Gays to openly declare their sexuality within the ranks of the Military to sign it into laws and for the Pentagon.

Repeal passed by a 65 – 31 margin in the Senate, 8 Republicans abandoning so-called Republican principles and joined by 2 Independents to help Democrats pass their long sought after repeal. Sens. Scott Brown of Massachusetts, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Mark Kirk of Illinois, George Voinovich of Ohio, Richard Burr of North Carolina, John Ensign of Nevada and Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe of Maine.

Repeal had earlier passed in the lame duck House by a margin of 250-175, 14 Republicans abandoning those so-called Republican principles there. Judy Biggert (IL), Mary Bono Mack (CA), John Campbell (CA), Anh ‘Joseph’ Cao (LA), Mike Castle (DE), Lincoln Diaz-Balart (FL), Charles Djou (HI), David Dreier (CA), Vern Ehlers (MI), Jeff Flake (AZ), Ron Paul (TX), Todd Russell Platts (PA), Dave Reichert (WA) and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (FL)

Massachusetts traitorous Senator, John ‘F’in Kerry said of the repeal, “The military remains the great equalizer. Just like we did after President Truman desegregated the military, we’ll someday look back and wonder what took Washington so long to fix it.”

Kerry has a decade’s long history of being wrong on issues.

Is Repealing DADT Really All That Important Right Now?

by lewwaters

Just in case no one has noticed, our country is in deep trouble. We are spiraling ever downward into an economic depression that seems to have no end. We are borrowing more than ever before, national debt doubling in just 2 years, unemployment is approaching unheard of highs not seen since the 1930’s, jobs are drying up, states are going bankrupt, people’s homes are being foreclosed on, the government is taking over banks all of the time, bailing out large corporations on the brink of disaster and congresses major worry is letting Gays serve openly in the Military?

Why is this even being considered at this time? With all of the problems we are facing, will allowing Gays to openly declare their sexuality in the ranks improve anything in the country?

No!
