Google Search Results

What is wrong with these two pictures? I did a Google Blogsearch for "Ron Sims" and the first item that came up was "David Irons is a piece of shit." And, yes, I had it sorted for RELEVANCE.

Then I did a blogsearch for "David Irons". The same crap came up, followed by "Goldy Topples Irons". In fact, most the first page of results is anti-David Irons crap.

I don't know, but that is just wrong.

New poll - Slam Ads working (maybe)

It appears that the Goldy style of campaigning is having an effect - or is it?

A new Survey USA poll is out in the County Exec. race. Internals are only available in a comparison graph so far and I have not had a chance to look through it thoroughly (it's 4:45 am, I am still waking up and going through numbers is not a good thing at this point).

The trend graph available shows a couple of interesting things that put many things into question. Most demo groups have slight changes in support, and not all in Sims favor, but others show WILD swings (10+ points). That always makes me curious about the actual numbers and the locations of those voters (ie. Buckley or Queen Anne) which could make a drastic difference in the numbers.

If this doen't scare you nothing will - Click Here

Check out this one - I think I see Goldy and the PI editorial board in there

It's NOT about abortion

I am really getting tired of the MSM and actually just about everyone in the media repeating the misconception that conservatives/Republicans are focused solely on the abortion issue when considering a SCOTUS nominee. This criticism is leveled at everyone, including the White House.

They believe that the "religious right" are the ones that scuttled the nomination of Harriet Meiers. Patently false. A belief in God and being conservative does not automaticaly cast you as a member of the "far right wing" of the party.

In actuality, abortion "rights" in and of itself is not an issue at all. It is the underlying law that is the issue. That underlying principal, called the Constitution, is what it is all about. The founders of our country knew that the document they were authoring was not a document for just their time, but that they were establishing a foundation for future generations, and boy were they successful. The more time goes on, the more their wisdom shows through.

The problem comes when those comes when those whose sole job is to interpret this special document fail to do so in a manner consistent with the document itself and the intentions of our Founding Fathers. They begin to consult with foreign law for precedent and insight. Those laws, from countries not directed by such an insightful document, is not in keeping with the oath they took to "protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America".

For example, the "separation of church and state" does not exist. The Constitution protects us from the establishment of a state church. When placed in context of the times, they were protecting us from the goverment setting up a Church of America, in which all citizens are compelled to belong to the church and are not allowed to freely practice their faith. Religion, and not just christianity, is not forbidden in the public square. In fact, religion is the basis upon which this country was founded and is the basis for the most basic of our laws.

Conservatism, in part, is the belief that government should be limited. That applies to the Supreme Court as well. The justices, over time, have expanded both their sphere of responsibility (and their power) to include dictating law. We (the American people) have elected respresentative to perform that function.

Sims v. Irons - Looking at the polls

KING 5 commissioned aSurvey USA poll is from a couple of weeks agoreleased (10/17/05), but looking at the internals provides some interesting facts and explains Sims' current "aggressive" tactics.

Poll Results - Irons - 46% Sims - 43%

- Irons leads every age group except the 65+.
- Irons leads in 3 of 4 racial categories most notably with the Hispanic community 54% to 36%.
- Irons leads among men by 12 points, but only trails with women by 3 points.

As expected, Irons leads among R's 90 to 8, and among I's 49 to 35, but Sims only lead among D's by 72-15.

Taking trends from the previous poll (10/3/05), the news for Exec. Sims is dark. Sims increased his support in only 4 categories, his support fell among 15 categories and remained steady in 1 category. While on the other hand, Irons elevated his support in all 5 groups.

Interesting that the Sims campaign is on the offensive and has sent out their attack dogs (or horses asses if you prefer) to slander Irons with accusations that are suspect at best and outright lies at worst.

What do they say? Necessity is the mother of invention.

It will be interesting to see the results of the next poll and if the trends continue. Here's hoping.

Why did it take a Democrat?

HT: - Thanks Orb, you are an indispensible resource.

Senator Ron Wyden (D-Oregon), from my original home state, has proposed a "simpler, flatter, fairer" Tax Reform package.

This has been a grassroots Republican issue for some time, unfortunately, the powers that be in D.C. have merely paid it lip service in an attempt to sate the rank & file.

As of yet, I have not poured through the proposal, the fact that it is from Sen. Wyden, I am dubious, but I will give hime the benefit of the doubt and say that at least at first appearance, it seems to be a good start.

Rush Limbaugh Tribute - SUV Update

First, my thoughts and prayers go out to the driver killed in this accident and his/her family.

In a week where Rush has been more public than any other in recent memory, his performance on Broadway & rare sit-down interview with Hannity on Fox News, I thought an SUV update would be fitting.

In this story, which is a grand total of 5 sentences long, the fact that it was a SUV was mentioned 3 times. Would this have even been a story had it been a Camry, Civic or Focus?

Democrat supports Irons

Karen Rispoli ( Democrat challenger to Ron Sims during the primary) has come out in support of David Irons.

And that is not all of the story, Stefan has again dug up the inside story and the apparent cover up (another one) of the Sims administration.
