Fox News is a hetrophobe
Phil Robertson expressed in crude terms, his absence of understanding as to the orifice of preference, by males in the homosexual community. His observation by definition of the term was not only factual, but also an accurate assessment, pardon the pun..read more

Steve Hall “Not That Steve Hall”
On September 5th, 2013, Singer/Songwriter Steve Hall debuted his new sample CD titled ‘Steve Hall-Not that Steve Hall’. The CD features two tracks, ’Can you feel it ‘, in which its motivations are personal and ‘My own Dylan song’, which he hopes will afford proper respect to the folk legend himself… Mr. Dylan. Songs to follow will include ‘Trouble’, ‘Dancing too close’, ‘Morning brew’ along with several others. A ’retro’ album is also planned in the future to include some classics mixed with some retro styling's of his own.
Tunecore is the home for distribution and administration of Steve’s works, which will be split between studio recordings that include contributions by Nashville recording artists, which Steve coins as the ‘Mugicians’, and ‘Shack’ recordings recorded primarily by himself.

Very important Vote No on 594 and 591
Until a law is designed in such a manner that the criminal element will abide it, we at Higher Elevations believe the only legitimate ballot measures should act to remove current restrictions and fees imposed on law abiding citizens. When a measure such as that shows up vote for it. For all other measures, vote against. Criminals don't abide the laws or pay the fees. That's what makes them criminals.

It is important for all of our votes to be counted and if we want to clean up politics it is imperative for each of us to be responsible for our vote.
An uninformed choice on a ballot plays a game of chance with real world regulations. It is ok to leave a box blank if you do not know and it is actually the responsible thing to do.
Will your vote count?
If you live in Stevens County Washington then perhaps not , unless you follow up to be sure. Some ballots have been returned to the sender because of the bar code above the sender’s name on the label. If your ballot comes back to you it may not reach the auditor’s office before the cutoff date and therefore not be counted.
How it is possible for an employee of the USPS not to realize that an obvious mail in ballot should understandably arrive at the elections office and not back in your mailbox… I don’t know but apparently that is the case in some cases.
You can find out if you have been harmed by this by checking the ‘MyVote’ page of the county elections website or contacting your auditor’s office by phone. The link and phone numbers are provided below. Your ballot should be received within two to three days.

New Article 10/17/2014 Nobel Peace Prize
The Nobel Society gave Barack Obama their coveted prize and now we’re at war in Iraq and Syria. Does that mean George W. Bush gets two awards, because when he left office we had won the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
I consider it a personal badge of honor that I haven’t received a Nobel Peace prize, because they used to mean something but today I don’t sense any standard left to it, except that most recipients lean left.
And I have a problem with Tom Reed, or Tom Reid from ACN. Tom, you are an idiot for calling Republicans idiots, so why don’t you clamp it. According to Tom we need to stick with the old guard because seniority trumps competence.
Let me tell you Tom, Republicans aren’t perfect but most of the time I find them to be less imperfect than the alternative and I’ll take a low tire rather than a flat one, or no tire at all. Perhaps you’d prefer to run on the rim.
Finally, to the nuance enlightened people. I have made an honest effort to take an external look at my thoughts, principles and actions to smooth rough edges of sensitivity where I possibly can and present my views in a more considerate manner.
But so far I have been met with silence at best and more often with intolerance, insensitivity, bigotry and shouting.
I guess it’s mostly about my bending to your desire and my concerns hold no merit in return, as if you believe that 15 percent is actually going to prevail over the will of main stream America. Good luck with that.
But in my case I am trying and I’m actually reaching out, but no one is reaching back. Perhaps it takes time, so I will be patient for a little while. But if it’s mostly about you and none about us then I will eventually grow tired of the gripe. In other words, put up or shut up.
Look in the mirror slap your face
We are conservatives! We are NOT whiners. We are NOT victims… “oh poor me, the mean old media doesn’t treat us fair. We can’t win because of the media”. BULL!
Conducting ourselves as whiny victims who spend all of their time blaming the media and Obama administration for all of their woes and failures sounds curiously similar to the Obama administration and liberals blaming George W. Bush.
Is that who you are?
Our difficulties are the inevitable result of blaming anyone but ourselves for our problems as we look backward, instead of looking forward and becoming the kind of leaders we want to follow.
Look through the lens of Ronald Reagan. Did he blame Carter for the economy he inherited? Did he cry about the mean old media that kept him from his goals? Did he make excuses or blame someone else? No, because he was too busy leading.
If we lose a contest fair and square or due to any disadvantages perceived or warranted, then we use the loss to motivate us to become better leaders each time out. Great leadership doesn’t use excuses!
To be agnostic regarding any politician regardless of the letter on there sleeve reflects a healthy state of mind.
Be a leader and innovator. Forget about endless political tomorrows. Speak to what you intend to do instead of what ‘they’ did. Say what you mean, do what you say and be who you are.
Because that’s how you lead and leading is how you win.
I believe it is possible for two people to share a union that encompasses one or more of the following specific focuses or disciplines of a relationship and I believe recognition of that union should be legitimate before the civil structure of an inclusive and tolerant society.read more
Difficult but not impossible
In a recent article titled ‘I wholeheartedly embrace…’ I wrote about the importance of unity going forward. That wasn’t just lip service or a box I had to check. Rather it’s a belief I hold that is fundamental to re-unite America.
Today I have two new friends who hold differing views than my own and I welcome them. read more
