Libertarians try to block Romney from Washington Ballot

Source: AP

OLYMPIA, Wash. -- The Libertarian Party in Washington state is trying to block Mitt Romney from the November ballot, arguing that Republicans are no longer a major political party.

Officials said Thursday that the party filed a lawsuit in Thurston County Superior Court. The Libertarians contend that the GOP does not get an automatic slot on the ballot because state law defines major parties as those who receive 5 percent of the vote in a statewide race during a November general election in even years.

Republican Dino Rossi did get 48 percent of the vote in the U.S. Senate race two years ago but wasn't officially nominated by the party at its convention.

State elections officials cite other laws that say a party qualifies as a major political party if its presidential ticket got more than 5 percent of the vote in the last White House vote.

One Ingredient....Corn Butter!

I can't wait until the local corn is ready here. I am so excited to try this method of creating "Corn Butter". Basically you blend the fresh kernels, run them through a strainer then cook to thicken. The link has all kinds of ideas for tasty recipes.....

ON EDIT: This link is no longer valid and I did a quick google search for another but couldn't find a recipe. See my post below for directions on how to make this.

A 13 year old discusses slut shaming

This popped up on my facebook this afternoon and I was blown away by her confidence and ability to express her thoughts in such a clear and passionate fashion.

If you haven't seen this yet it's definitely worth a few minutes of your time.

So this popped up on my facebook and I was blown away

I don't recall a time where I've been so impressed with a 13 year old expressing herself. If you haven't seen this yet it's worth watching and agree with her or not it's terrific to see a young woman with so much confidence.

"Your Uterus is Sharon"s Lemonade" Oh My..LOL!

Helen lays it out for us....Love Them!


Margaret, a few months back I joked with you about Dick Cheney having a heart transplant. If you recall I told you it should be called a heart implant because he didn’t actually have a heart to begin with. Yesterday, I was shocked to discover that Chief Justice John Roberts at some point must have undergone a heart implant as well. Who would have ever thought he would be the deciding vote on the Affordable Care Act or as I like to call it – Christianity 101, taking care of the sick and the poor.

The existence of Robert’s heart has been a mystery to me for some time now. He was the champion of the pro-life movement until he announced that Roe vs. Wade was “settled law”. Then he voted against the Arizona immigration law and I began to think I could hear a faint beat coming from his chair. Of course he also took a piece of his rib and breathed life into inanimate corporations so creating a heart from nothing is certainly possible if not probable for him. It does appear that his new heart implant might be taking hold while Dick Cheney’s is extremely unlikely. But I am not yet ready to test that theory when it comes to a woman’s right to a safe, legal abortion.

And lest you think yesterday’s ruling has nothing to do with abortion, let me remind you what that orange speaker of the house said just before Congress took the vote on this bill:

The Republicans want into Helen's vagina....

Margaret, the Republicans are trying to get into my vagina again. I wish I knew what was up there that they find so interesting. This time it was about sex-selective abortions with a bill sponsored by Trent Franks of Arizona. In spite of the pressing issues with the economy, Speaker of the House John Boehner justified Congress spending more time worrying about a woman’s womb by saying, “This is an important issue to the American people. This type of sex selection most Americans find pretty repulsive, and our members feel strongly about it. That’s why it is being brought to the floor.” Am I wearing orange colored glasses or did Boehner just pretend to care about women?

Yes. It is repulsive. I agree. But then again so are most of the “Housewives” shows on Bravo, and Congress hasn’t passed any laws about that.

The bill never had a chance. Once again this was another Republican with an axe to grind against Planned Parenthood just wasting Congress’s time by forcing a vote to get on record who supports abortion and who doesn’t. As if we didn’t already know by looking through the gun scope crosshairs on Sarah Palin’s rifle. The Republican party caring about women? Margaret, that dog just don’t hunt.

In truth, this is a tricky one. Of course the idea of preferring a male child over a female child is archaic and sex-selective abortions should be repulsive to most Americans – if not all. But once again the Republicans missed the point entirely and created a bill that clearly was just another attempt to limit a woman’s right to decide when or if she will bring a child into the world. I wonder how these same men would vote if the law was about sexual preference-selection instead of just gender selection?
