I saw this quote on FB:
Compassion is not weakness, and concern for the unfortunate is not socialism.
Hubert H. Humphrey

And then I went looking for more:
*Behind every successful man is a proud wife and a surprised mother-in-law.
*For the first time in the history of mankind, one generation literally has the power to destroy the past, the present and the future, the power to bring time to an end.
*It is not what they take away from you that counts. It's what you do with what you have left
*It was once said that the moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; and those who are in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy and the handicapped.
*The impersonal hand of government can never replace the helping hand of a neighbor.
*The right to be heard does not automatically include the right to be taken seriously.
*To err is human. To blame someone else is politics.
*Today we know that World War II began not in 1939 or 1941 but in the 1920's and 1930's when those who should have known better persuaded themselves that they were not their brother's keeper.

And I especially love this one (italics are my own!):
*American public opinion is like an ocean, it cannot be stirred by a teaspoon.

JMHO, this was a great man.

The latest outrage from the lovely Republican Party:
http://www.republicansforrape.org/
Do scroll down and find out if your Representative DIDN'T vote for this bill and give them a call, please. I'm happy to say both of Alaska's supported it.

Obviously it must be a pro-life thing, because all those lovely children wouldn't be born if we didn't approve of rape and support it with our Defense Dollars. (/sarcasm)

"I am an American and a Catholic; I love my country and treasure my faith," Kennedy said. "But I do not assume that my conception of patriotism or policy is invariably correct, or that my convictions about religion should command any greater respect than any other faith in this pluralistic society. I believe there surely is such a thing as truth, but who among us can claim a monopoly on it?"

Too bad a few more politicians and religious leaders don't feel this way.

I've figured it out! Palin says she's quitting for a 'higher calling' now. Ah. *lightbulb on* It's obvious, the office she's going to run for is....GOD!

*falls down laughing!*

ETA mini rant: I'm reading some of the comments on MSNBC's NewsVine and I keep seeing this term 'haters.' Excuse me, but we aren't in the schoolyard anymore. GROW UP!

HOLY F'ING......!

Palin to resign as Alaska Governor

Okay, well, I didn't see that coming. Not that I'm sorry. But her Lt. Gov Sean Parnell is pretty much as crack-brained as she is.

Dang. We won't have Sarah to kick around anymore. Altho, since she's probably going to run for President....LOL! Let the games begin!

ETA: There are some really interesting rumors out there, some listed here at The Mudflats Blog which I highly rec for great information about Alaska politics. Apparently some Federal investigating is going on regarding Sarah's house and the Sports Complex she had built when she was Mayor of Wasilla. Interesting indeed!

The Repugs did it

Finally, someone coming out and saying that yes the deficit is mostly Bush's fault. (As if we didn't know.) Worse yet, Obama isn't fixing it by continuing Bush's screw ups.

In the past, I've recommended a political blog called The Mudflats (http://www.themudflats.net/)to anyone who really wanted to know the truth about Sarah Palin and the dirt that mires our Alaskan politics. Today, one of a our state legislators, Mike Doogan a Democrat in the State House, who felt threatened by the truth, outed her by publishing her real name in an email to his constituents. Now as you all know, Our Fair Governator is an incredibly vindictive person and apparently, so are other politicians up here. By publishing this person's name (I choose not to do so), he has put her and her family in harm's way. He's a former journalist who should know the value of anonymous sources, yet he didn't like what she had to say about him, so he took our time (the State Legislator is in session) and tracked her down to out her because he feels he has the right to.

He talks about 'transparency and accountability' as an excuse, and yet this was a blog by a private citizen who has the right to say anything they want to, anonymous or not. Mudflats is a blogger who cheerfully admitted her own bias and had no public power other than the weight of words. Apparently the weight of those words were causing Mr. Doogan some discomfort, so in a petty, mean, small and possibly illegal way, he stuck back. He took a job that is public, to make decisions for the public he represents and indeed, for all Alaskans as he votes on important issues that affect every one of us in this state. He's an author and a former columnist for the Anchorage Daily News. He's chosen to be a public figure and as a politician, he is accountable. Yet he violates ethics for his own petty revenge.

Once again, I'm ashamed of Alaska politics. We make the Taliban look good. At least they think God is directing, not that they ARE God.

I sincerely hope at least an ethics complaint is lodged against him if not a full civil suit against him by Mudflats. Think about it...you are anonymous here. Want your private and personal information made public? Want your employer, your family to read what you post here? Want them to look in your journals and diaries? This is a First Amendment Right and he had no right to do what he did. As someone posted at Mudflats, The Federalist Papers were published anonymously and for damn good reason.

I hope you'll at least continue to watch this story as it develops because it has to do with your privacy too. Me..I think I need to write some emails.

Hosanna!

I couldn't be happier! At the risk of pissing off my non-believing flist members, I have to pray to God this good man can pull our country out of the deep, deep hole the Repubnicans have dug for us. And I pray the SS can keep him safe from the evil that lives here and abroad who will try to stop him.

Yays for the very all inclusive speech! I found it very inspiring.

And, oh, look...he's signing something and he's a SOUTHPAW! LOL! At least we know if he's a lefty, it means he's in his right mind. :oD

When you say comedy in Alaska, you're talking Mr. Whitekeys. Even tho he's retired from his nightclub, he's made a new DVD about the history of Alaska. This little bit titled "Girls Just Wanna Have Guns" is typical of his twisted sense of humor. And it's why I adore him!

I'm thinking the DVD will make a great gift for the DH for Xmas.
(And yes, that was filmed in beautiful downtown Wasilla!)

I have never doubted for a moment that Stevens was guilty. I just doubted they'd find a jury that would convict him. Yays for truth and justice for what good it does at this point.

Will he serve time? I doubt it. He's old and it's the first genuine black mark against him. (Read: he's never been caught!) I don't really want to see an old man go to jail anyway.

Will he get re-elected? Probably. I won't be voting for him, but the stoopid/GOP reigns in Alaska. I'd be really, really surprised if he lost.

I've never said he didn't do a good job for Alaska. He did, but it's time for him to step aside and it's too bad his arrogance and pride won't let him do that in time for us to get someone effective in that position.

Courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] wraith816  and [livejournal.com profile] bugchicklv :
As evidenced by Katie Couric, Sarah Palin is unable to name any Supreme Court Case other than Roe v. Wade. (She was also asked what newspapers or magazines she regularly reads. She couldn't or wouldn't name one.)

The Rules: Post info about ONE Supreme Court decision, modern or historic to your LJ. (Any decision, as long as it's not Roe v. Wade.) For those who see this on your f-list, take the meme to your OWN LJ to spread the fun (and the facts).


The one Sarah Palin SHOULD have been able to quote:

EXXON SHIPPING CO. et al. v. BAKER et al. No. 07–219.

Otherwise known as The Day Exxon Fucked Alaska For the Second Time.

The person selected to moderate the VP debate is now being denounced as an Obama supporter and not able to be impartial as the moderator.
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26978194/
Reason: apparently mostly because she is black and is writing a book about race and the political scene.
As usual, the Republicans try to baffle with bullshit. Why can't they stick to the issues? Oh, wait, because their issues are that they are trying to make themselves all richer and that doesn't sound so good when you're trying to get elected.

I'm so proud

Here's an anti-Sarah rally in Anchorage earlier today. I'd have gone if I was up there. Reports say there were hundreds of people there. They claim she has an 80% approval rate up here, but I don't believe it.
