Shoreline Caucus Voter’s Guide

Posted by

The following are recommendations, based on an analysis of the issues and candidates from a conservative perspective. No matter how you vote on some of these issues or candidates, please mark and return your ballots as soon as you can – voter turnout is very important in this election. And, please consider canvassing your neighborhood to see if anyone would like some help with ballot items, or if elderly or shut-ins would like you to drop their ballot in the mail. Also, please forward this guide to your friends on email and facebook. Again, anything you can do to help increase voter turnout is very important in the next couple of weeks.

Initiative 1185 , concerning Tax and Fee Increases Imposed by State Government (requiring 2/3 vote)

Recommend voting FOR this measure. I-960 was approved in 2007, then in 2010 the legislature suspended it and raised taxes $6.7 billion. State Sen. Marilyn Chase was recorded in the 2010 race saying that “We don’t have a tax problem, we have a revenue problem.” The state constitution requires that the legislature create a balanced budget, and this measure requires legislators to make hard choices, not simply raise taxes to balance their spending habits.

Katy escapes during the Hungarian Revolution

Posted by

A neighbor, Katy, gives her account:

My grandparents spoke German at home. My grandfather was Polish, meeting my grandmother during WWI.  They lived happily until WWII.

When Hitler came into power, Hungarian Germans sided with Nazis.  All bridges were destroyed during WWII. In 1944, my mother was shopping with some friends. They wanted to go on the trolley but it was too crowded. Then the bridge was blown up. Everyone on the trolley died.  The Germans bombed the bridges to thwart the Russians, setting charges underneath.  But when the river froze it could be crossed. Read more »

Tolerance- British style

Posted by

Apparently, this was a reader’s ‘letter to the editor ‘ published in daily “SUN” :

I am truly perplexed that so many of my friends are against another mosque being built in London on the Thames. I think it should be the goal of every Englishman to be tolerant. Thus the Mosque should be allowed, in an effort to promote tolerance. Read more »

The teenagers who speak in this video belong to http://www.im2moro.org. These young people realize that if they don’t stand up and speak out for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness today, they will be living in a very different America tomorrow. H/T Ken.
