Palin. Is. Corrupt.  

Posted by Jessica in ,

"An Alaska woman who owns a company that processes workers’ compensation claims in the state has told an independent investigator that she was urged by the office of Gov. Sarah Palin to deny a benefits claim for Palin’s ex brother-in-law, a state trooper who was involved in an ugly divorce and child custody dispute with Palin’s sister, despite evidence that the claim appeared to be legitimate, according to state officials who were briefed about the conversation."

So I've been becoming antsy and ready to venture out on my own again...but this time not across the country. On a whim, I decided to search Craigslist again for a houseboat to rent. When I've looked previously, everything in Seattle was very expensive and I had pretty much given up hope of finding an affordable houseboat. Well, that whim led to a listing of a houseboat that would be near perfect for me. It is very tiny, but with tiny comes cheaper rent. 

I am going to go take a look at it in person on Tuesday and introduce the owner to my dog, who would be a sporadic visitor. I could get it furnished, which is a huge plus. It is a great location near Gasworks Park, less than a mile to the University of Washington, and I could catch a bus to downtown Seattle only 1/3 of a mile from the houseboat. It's a bit of a drive to Federal Way and I have some small concerns about security/safety, and parking my car in a parking lot, but I think these are small issues that are easily resolved.

I'll keep ya'll updated and I expect lots of family to my housewarming party.

Why I Support Barack H. Obama  

Posted by Jessica in ,

I find it strange and hard to believe that so many people support the McCain-Palin ticket. It's as if they don't really get what they are supporting (corruption, special interests, a lack of experience and judgment, a lobbyist run White House, the worsening of our healthcare system, more war, the same George W. Bush policies that have destroyed our economy, ruined our reputation, and decimated our military). 

And these people who support McCain-Palin then act so surprised that anyone could support Barack Obama. I mean, why support someone who epitomizes the American dream? Why support someone who came from nothing and went to Law School (a pretty good one at that), become the first African-American President of the Harvard Law Review, become a community organizer instead of cash in and sell out; work as a Civil Rights lawyer, become a professor of Constitutional Law (my friend was in some of his courses). The nerve of that guy to actually want to serve the public by becoming a State Senator and then a United State Senator. How DARE HE!

This all proves that Barack Obama isn't just highly intelligent, but that he cares about his community, state, and country, that he understands great movements and important change happens from the bottom up, not from the President down. This is a man who has come from absolutely nothing to establish himself as one of the greatest figures of our day. How dare people support him. How dare people stand up and say, "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH."  

I support Barack Obama not because of his story, though it plays an instrumental role in who he is and the type of President he will be, I support Obama because I believe he will lead us into the future with honor and dignity and re-establish the United States of America as a moral leader to the world. 

Sarah Palin is a LIAR  

Posted by Jessica in , ,

This list comes from Andrew Sullivan (who is a Conservative) who has a brilliant blog:

The Daily Dish.

- She has lied about the Bridge To Nowhere. She ran for office favoring it, wore a sweatshirt defending it, and only gave it up when the federal congress, Senator McCain in particular, went ballistic. She kept the money anyway and favors funding Don Young's Way, at twice the cost of the original bridge.

- She has lied about her firing of the town librarian and police chief of Wasilla, Alaska.- She has lied about pressure on Alaska's public safety commissioner to fire her ex-brother-in-law.

- She has lied about her previous statements on climate change.

- She has lied about Alaska's contribution to America's oil and gas production.

- She has lied about when she asked her daughters for their permission for her to run for vice-president.

- She has lied about the actual progress in constructing a natural gas pipeline from Alaska.- She has lied about Obama's position on habeas corpus.

- She has lied about her alleged tolerance of homosexuality.

- She has lied about the use or non-use of a TelePrompter at the St Paul convention.

- She has lied about her alleged pay-cut as mayor of Wasilla.

- She has lied about what Alaska's state scientists concluded about the health of the polar bear population in Alaska.

Palin's Favorability Ratings SINK, BIG TIME  

Posted by Jessica in , ,

Gov. Sarah Palin's favorable/unfavorable ratings have suffered a stunning 21 point collapse in just one week, according to Research 2000 polling. Last week, 52% approved and 35% disapproved of the GOP vice presidential nominee (+17 net). This week, 42% approved and 46% disapprove (-4 net).

Earlier this week, Newsweek also saw the drop in other polling. "Over the course of a single weekend... Palin went from being the most popular White House hopeful to the least."

A New Blog I've Started Because of An Idea I have  

Posted by Jessica in

So if you click my blogger profile, you can see that I have created a new blog, Women Against Sarah Palin. I find the choice of Palin, while potentially brilliant, so offensive and dangerous, I can barely contain my feelings. 

I find the hypocrisy of the McCain campaign to be laughable. I really want to compile a list of the reasons why people shouldn't support the McCain-Palin ticket, but the list is a mile long. My weekdays are super busy, but I'm going to try to do short entries on the blog of reasons why Sarah Palin is unqualified, way out of the mainstream, and not what you think she is.

There are times in life when your reality is something you can't comprehend. Right now is that time for me. My lawsuit with the Mormon Church is over and we are victorious. Our victory is a victory for all victims who have been wronged, ignored, and silenced into shame.
