The lesser of the Evils

I think there is a problem with most of the homeschooling community, Ron Paul (even though he is running as a Republican and has promised not to switch) is viewed as a Libertarian and thus would not deal harshly enough with drug dealers, abortion etc. so they are going to vote for the lesser of all the evils, Huckabee.

Here are a few reasons not to vote for Huckabee:

David Huckabee.
The Quakers believed (I'm not saying I agree %100 with them) that a man should be judged on how well his children turned out, so lets take a look at Mike Huckabee's son David.
David was fired from his job at a Boy Scout camp after he and a friend found and tortured a stray dog. I'm not an animal rights activist but when someone hangs a stray dog, but not to death, then slits the dogs throat, then stones the dog the rest of the way, I call that SICK.
He is shown below (the one in the pink boa).

Some people bring up the fact that Huckabee was a Baptist Preacher, is this true?
Yes and no, he was a preacher, but from quotes I've heard, he is a "cheap grace" preacher in the manner of the contemporary church.

Iraq and Iran.

Huckabee plans to stay in Iraq, a move I don't support, neither does a fair percentage of the troops. He also wants a war Iran, why? I don't know, maybe he wants to bring about the rapture, in the war with Iran he said he would not be against using Nukes.

He's an oath breaker.

While Governor of Arkansas Mike Huckabee had numerous grocery items charged to the Governor's Mansion and tried to take furniture from the same place when he left. He raised taxes because he said the court told him to, but happened to be video taped asking the legislature for the same taxes.

Vote for him if you dare.

A short review on the A&E Horatio Hornblower series.

The Horatio Hornblower series is about a Englishman who, after the death of his parents, joins the Navy and goes from being a lowly midshipman to Captain of his own ship in the final episode.


Good lighting, Good CG, Kinda Historically Accurate, Interesting Storyline and Impressive Naval Combat.


Well I think I can sum up the cons with a quote attributed to Churchill,

"Don't talk to me about naval tradition. It's nothing but rum, licentiousness, and the lash."

There is a lot of character growth, but not always in a good way.

Oh, and the Irish are the bad guys so this gets a D.

Microsoft backs Anti-Hunters

Tis' a sorry state of affairs when a technically good company like Microsoft starts backing stupid libs like this.
