Meg for Governor; Carly for Senate

Meg Whitman is a very competent woman, as is Carly Fiorina. These two women are/were “Rock Stars” of the corporate world and worked hard for their companies. They got salaries comparable to rock stars and other celebrities which made them wealthy women. I believe they will also work hard for the people of California to help solve some of our out of control problems.

Meg Whitman is not pro-life, but in the various degrees of things which the abortion laws affect, she is closer to our pro-life position than Jerry Brown is. She believes marriage should be only between a man and a woman.  Jerry Brown does not believe that marriage should be limited to only one man with one woman. Carly Fiorina IS pro-life and pro-marriage, the normal kind.

Meg Whitman’s religion is listed as Presbyterian.  Carly Fiorina was raised Episcopalian, married a Catholic, and is an irregular church goer(this info is from Jerry Brown is Catholic, studied earlier for the priesthood; also studied Buddhism in Japan. Barbara Boxer is Jewish.  As far as I know none of these are regular worship attenders.

Being very active in educating voters and helping people to exercise their civic duty to help elect responsible people to government, I don’t appreciate the voting record of these two women that I’m supporting. However, I prefer their ideas on running a government over the ideas of Brown and Boxer which I believe have and would run governments into the ground and as a minimum are not sustainable.

MORE information on my two voting guides.


Each county has it’s own rules regarding writing in candidates for election.  🙁

To vote for Diane Lenning for CA Superintendent of Public Instruction, I have this info:

Some ballots in the state have a line with a box to fill in and you write her name in under the office.

IN Los Angeles County, we have to write out her name and the office on the gray sleeve: Diane Lenning CA Superintendent of Public Instruction.

Please VOTE on NOV 2.

Normally, I would not encourage a write-in or a third party candidate, especially if the polling is close. Both candidates on the ballot for this office are Democrat or left leaning, as far as I know. Diane qualified as a “Write In.” She is a conservative Republican. I hope you will vote for her.

On the other side of write-ins:

There is another write in candidate in CA for a different office,  but because in that case I think it is ill-advised, I would not encourage voting for her.

In Alaska, I think Lisa Murkowski is so wrong to try to hold on to the senate seat that she evidently thinks her family owns. Her daddy had it from 1981 to 2002 when he appointed his daughter, Lisa to take his place. Then she was elected in 2004.  Hopefully,  Joe Miller will win and be the new senator from Alaska.

In COLORADO, an interesting thing is going on and if the polls are anywhere near close, the third party person, Tom Tancredo, is a known conservative, and is in the polls, WAY ahead of the Republican who is the party nominee. I’d probably go with Tancredo because he might be able to beat the Democrat as he is within the margin of error. If you can believe the polls.  Tancredo is another one though who lost the primary then stuck out on his own.  I don’t like that usually. But like most reading this I would favor the conservative, whichever one they are.

Voting Guide

Barb’s Voting Guide for California for November 2, 2010

Here is a 3 page guide to voting on the Santa Clarita ballot, though most of the information is for anywhere in California. I will hope to comment this week as to the reasons for these choices. Please vote wisely. If you were registered before and have moved within the county, you  may still vote at the polling place for your new address using a provisional ballot. And, yes, they do count those. They count all the ballots.

Who is President Obama?

When President Obama was elected it was my desire to take a break from giving opinions and allow him the proverbial honeymoon. Two years have now passed and the answer to my question posed at his election is that he is who he has always been, a radical from the left wing of America’s politics, and not the moderate temperate person that many people thought he would be. However, there were clues during the campaign–Michelle Obama saying, “For the first time in her life she was proud of her country.” What? For a 40 year old woman, you have to wonder what she had been thinking of the country up until then. And  Barak Obama saying, he “wants to fundamentally change this country.” “Fundamentally change?” From what to what?  Those are scary words. Now we are half way through Obama’s first term and the country is about to have a referendum on President Barak Obama.

Thank you, President Bush.

7:30 a.m.  PST

President George W. Bush, thank you for your eight years of dedicated service to this country. Yours will go down in history as one of the most challenging times in the history of this great country. From having the most devastating attack on this country from an outside source to the worst storm, Katrina, in the history of the country; having possibly the most antagonistic opposition party sometimes making remarks bordering on treason; an obviously biased against you news media and a celebrity community that reveled in ridicule, you have weathered the storms of this office with graciousness seldom seen in today’s coarse America. Thank you for service well done.

As I write these remarks you have two hours left of a historic presidency. I believe history will be kinder to you than your peers have been.

History Before Our Eyes

8:05 p.m.

Barack Hussein Obama. The 44th President of the United States. Congratulations!

The best thing about his election is that he has broken down a wall–hopefully the last wall in the race issues. I’m very happy for the African American community who now have one of their own as President of the United States. For myself, I wish Obama shared the views of a Thomas Sowell or Clarence Thomas,  Lynn Swann or J. C. Watts, Walter Williams or Michael Steel–I think America would be better served, at least from the historical perspective of the great country that we have been.

Who is Barack Hussein Obama? Is he who he has been for six months? Or is he who he has been for 45 years?

Donate for Democracy

11:00 a.m.

Do you have a few dollars that you can send to help good people get elected to Congress?

Two who could use your $$ now are:

Lt. Col. Bill Russell – 
Do not be put off by the fact that Google has marked his campaign website with a “?” — that is Google’s little bit for the Democrats.

Bill Russell is running against John Murtha. Pennsylvania Congressman. It is time for Murtha to retire–he served his country, well, I presume. But his last two terms (of 17? –time to retire anyway) he’s lost it. He made terrible accusations against a group of our soldiers in Iraq–they were later exonerated–cleared from any blame in the incident. But Murtha’s comments had already gone out around the world to be used against the USA by our enemies and to demoralize our soldiers. He’s also the one who calls western PA people racists and rednecks. I think his party considers those things not covered under free speech.

Michelle Bachman –  Minnesota Congresswoman. 

A strong voice for values I/we believe in, she’s the kind of person that we need in Congress. She is under attack, literally (her house was vandalized yesterday), because she said on Chris Mathews show, at his instigation, that many in congress hold anti-American views and she encourages that the media would investigate some. Since I’ve made that observation myself from listening to some, I can totally support her and hope that if you have a few dollars to send that would help her out. She regrets her choice of words–but the fact remains that, sadly, many Democrats have spoken words in recent years that certainly aided America’s enemies, in propaganda at least.

Persecution of Christians in India

1:00 p.m. 

Please call on the US and Indian governments to stop the persecution, murder, vandalism, harassment of Christians  in the state of Orissa  in India. This has been triggered by the Aug 23 murder of a Hindu priest and 4 associates which was then blamed on Christians resulting in horrific persecution for days if not weeks. Justice must be done and the lives and property of innocent people protected. It is evidently political/election season there. Thank God for our peaceful process–please God, let us not turn into this.
