(Just getting angry)
I come home to my inbox to see that there is a small disagreement between two people whom I respect: Gullyborg and Rick Hickey.
Rick sent out an email to his personal contact list blasting Jason Atkinson and supporting Ron Saxton based mostly on this from an Oregonian article:
"At a debate Monday, candidates were asked if Oregon should stop educating children of illegal immigrants. Only Saxton said it should."
Gullyborg responded that Saxton was making "promises he couldn't keep" since a Supreme Court decision says we have to educate the criminal alien's kids. A lengthy (by that I mean filled with lots of information) blog post ensued.
Several comments have been left regarding this post and various amendments to the constituion and blah blah blah.
My only comment:
I don't give a f**k what the law says, we shouldn't educate the children of illegal aliens. (If I was running for governor I would say that on a TV spot, they would have to bleep me)
I absolutely like Saxtons answer the best. He wasn't asked what the law was, he was asked if Oregon should stop doing something. Should we stop letting sluts kill their babies? Yes, I don't give a f**k what the supreme court says. Should government be able to take my house and give it to a big developer? No, I don't give a f**k what the supreme court says.
And this is from Atkinson's campaign manager last week (3/8/06):
"if bush wants to allow illegals to get guest worker status, jason disagrees."
If?!?!?!? Are you f**king stupid? Are you the only clueless person in this country who doesn't get that Bush's plan is amnesty? Did you not alienate enough voters last time you started talking like this? That's great the "Jason disagrees" but you obviously aren't willing to stand up to Republican "leadership" and tell them their ideas are f**king stupid.
Not at all in the interest of being fair and balance but in the interest of holding anyone accountable who needs it: (in the vein of my friend at RINOWatch)
From an OFF (Oregon Firearms Federation) email:
"Ron Saxton has ties to Goldschmidt and has refused to give us any details on his position on gun rights."
"Of the major Republican candidates, Kevin Mannix was the architect of the 1999 anti gun-show bill.When he ran for Governor last time he actually claimed to have opposed this bill, which he WROTE, LOBBIED FOR, and CARRIED ON THE HOUSE FLOOR."
Clearly no candidate here is perfect. We can choose between:
the abortion loving Saxton who is sounding conservative during the Republican primary but seriously, how do you reconcile with someone who doesn't have a personal problem with someone drilling into a babies skull and sucking his/her brain out...
or the conservative Atkinson who won't stand up to Republican leadership or the farmers on the issue of illegal aliens and apparently thinks that Oregon shouldn't stop educating the children of illegal aliens. (He should think that, I don't give a f**k what the law says)
and the former Democrat who, and I'm beating this dead horse yet again, actually I used a defibrilator on the horse so I could kill it again and then gave it mouth to mouth and then killed it ONE MORE TIME so I could continue to beat it: I can't get over the Steve Duinn colum that Mannix did... or the Mexican flags on the Oregon republican party website. You want to run for a position in Mexico then f**king go there. You can probably hitch a ride with the Oregon public school teachers who go down there to borrow their (obviously highly successful) curriculum.
Who was that other guy running? Ames? Maybe I'll vote for that guy. Or maybe I'll register as a Constituion Party member. Republicans sure don't seem to get it. Maybe I'll just write Lars Larson's name in.
Can someone recommend a good therapist?
