The GOP, Booby Bars and How Steve Duin Got it Right

Seven men on a California team building and golfing vacation went to a strip club. They’re all Republican lawmakers. Judging by the response by their political party and the Democrats, you’d think these seven had gotten drunk, dressed in Tiger suits, raped an ex girlfriend, and spent the last 14 years in office drunk or high on pain meds.

You’d think they’d gone to the ‘he’s finally legal’ birthday party of a 17 year old and then spent the following weekend with him coming up for air, food and water as needed as part of a “mentoring” relationship.

You’d think they sent pictures of their ‘junk’ via text message to sheer strangers, or been high on meth while in office.

You’d think they’d traded on inside information to score big in a land deal or consorted with felons to buy a house.

You get the point. All of those examples are right out of the Democrats Gone Wild playbook. And there’s plenty more where that came from.

After pressuring Wilsonville Republican Matt Wingard out of office–for having a legal relationship with an aide (who, apparently took a break from posing in a Teddy on her My Space page long enough to lie about her drinking age according to an EYEWITNESS); after his conservative Republican female replacement was marked with an “A” in favor of a more pious man; we now learn the Pharisees in the Washington County contingent of the Republican party maneuvered the removal of  strip club goer –Kevin Cameron– from his party leadership position.

Installed in his old position is a terrific guy, Andy Olson. But let’s hope Andy never had one too many drinks, darkened the door of a strip club or danced in Bomont because I’m pretty sure Reverend and Mrs. Shaw Moore would be waiting with the hook and the Book.

The five other men who attended are now on notice: Conduct yourselves like church going men.

Or else.

There’s nothing wrong with those standards, of course. The problem is with who’s enforcing them. Goodness knows I’ve spent the better part of 25 years trying to pound them into the brains of my kids and those in my Sunday school groups. But what’s your end game here? We’re trying to save our country and you’re worried about filling out the bass section of the Court Street church choir!

Those casting stones against Cameron, Wingard, Lindsay Berschauer and some unidentified ‘drunk’ candidate, claim they would hold the Democrats to their same standard.

Really? You would have considered voting for a Democrat in the State of Oregon but for that trip to Jiggles?

Do you mean that all that stands between you and voting for Tobias Read or Jefferson Smith or Kate Brown was that trip to Mary’s Club or a Lesbian booby bar?

Really?

You’d be totally fine with a Democrat despite their being in favor of no voter ID, abortion on demand till the 7th day of the 41st week, man on man marriage, endless gazillion dollar light rail, hot-and-cold-running booby bars and record PERS spending if it just hadn’t been for that steak–with allll the fixins-– at the Acropolis?

Allow me to recite my favorite political quote of 2009. “You Lie!”

You wouldn’t have voted for them. And you’d be laughed off the Op Ed pages if you tried to write a piece calling them out for a field trip to the Red Cap Garage.

Instead what you’ve done is replaced your values–good though they may be–for the values of the individuals involved and the voters’ values. You’ve found these people to be wanting, and, like the cowards they are, they’ve folded like one of those origami cranes we used to make in our culturally competent 4th grade art class.

You don’t even realize you got an assist today from Zero action columnist, Steve Duin. He unwittingly reported (but I repeat myself) that the men in question are AHA! H-Y-P-C-R-I-T-E-S!

Newsflash: We’re ALL hypocrites. It’s just much easier to spot us because we have moral standards–clumsily though we may follow them.

Here’s what Duin said in pointing out the Republicans were playing against type:

Did Matt Wand once promote a bill to prevent teen-dating violence by saying, “We can and should help youth learn healthy relationships before they develop patterns of negative relationships….”
Did Vic Gilliam really pitch a HUGS bill?

Does Cameron really lord over the legislative prayer breakfast?

When Freeman was extolling his “code of the West” malarkey, he argued that Oregonians should aspire to “strength, courage, self-sufficiency, compassion, hard work, independence and a commitment to the highest moral character.

Like or hate those bills, do these sound like immoral bills to you? Are they writing and passing Satan-smacked bills? It sounds like they were trying to strike a blow in favor of kids, standards and morality.

You might want to remember that as lawmakers navigate a budget and get government off our backs so we can save this state and our nation from fiscal and, yes, cultural Armageddon.

It would also help some if you’d stop assisting the Democrats in getting rid of some of our best people. Now there’s a crime.

Animal "Rights" Terrorists Target California Businesswoman. Why This Should Be Important to Oregonians.

Terrorists from the animal “rights” movement admit targeting the home of the Vice President of a Yorba Linda, California company for selling lab equipment to researchers. They threw red paint all over her home and in the pool in her back yard–and threatened more damage.

The “Animal Liberation Front” admitted (via news release) the responsibility for vandalizing the home of Allison Blackwell, the Senior Vice President of a company called Beckman Coulter, a supposed supplier to Huntington Life Sciences.

This is what the cretins admitted doing to her home,

 

Portland ALF Organizing Meeting

[H]er driveway, front door, porch and garage door were redecorated in red spray paint. The slogans “DROP HLS” and “PUPPY KILLER” was painted across her garage door. Red stain was thrown into her pool in the backyard turning the water and walls of the pool blood red, to remind her of the blood on her hands.

The news release also contained the executive’s address, so she should expect a boat load of hate mail and visits from other misguided souls from around the world. Indeed, the release contained an overt threat to Ms. Blackwell:

Allison, you know what to do to bring this to an end. Cut your losses and drop HLS. Until then expect to spend thousands more on damages because this is not a one time event. As it reads across your drive way in red spray paint “THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING”   –ALF

HLS stands for Huntington Life Sciences, an outfit out of the UK which has been battling animal “rights” activists for more than a decade now for using animals for research. They have an outpost in New Jersey. 

At Occupy Portland

Oregon is a hotbed for this kind of kookery. Terrorists have vandalized and picketed homes university researchers, threatened the lives of bankers with barely vestigial connection to HLS, burned down a mink farm, blown up trucks, put one Portland furrier out of business and have attacked another.

One activist tried to make himself a human torch to burn down a Portland fur business. He died in the attempt but not after trying to take several people with him. 

Federal authorities took nine long years to finally bust up and prosecute a nest of activists called The Family. Court documents showed the Earth and Animal Liberation Fronts were one and the same. And showed that Oregon terrorists had participated in the notorious Vail, Colorado ski resort torching.

However, even after that terrorism trial in Oregon, ALF and ELF left their marks at Occupy Portland in the fall of last year. 

The Obama Administration and local law enforcement took a hands off approach to Occupy Portland, allowing activists to routinely break the law. Anarchists, ALF and ELF were prominent at the downtown Portland encampment.
