… The Pro – Lifers Win a Big One [#US Supreme Court]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,July 6th,2014

.. and this is my neck of the woods , sort of …

.. this is a SCOTUS case from downstate Ohio . The Susan B. Anthony List ( a well – known pro – life group) wanted to challenge the honesty and veracity of a Congressional candidate [actually a sitting DemoCrap congresscritter] .. Well , the DemoCrap did not like it one bit . He challenged it in front of a body called the Ohio Elections Commission . The O.E.C. found that the ad was supposedly ” false , ” and fined the List a small amount of money . The case though was dropped when the DemoCrap lost his re – election big …

.. Well , the Susan B. Anthony List did not forget . They sued in federal court , challenging the constitutionality of the Ohio statute . The US Supreme Court ruled today , unaminously , that the action of the O.E.C. was unconstitutional …

.. Now , the List can continue in the federal court . What they may want to do is to challenge the constitutionality of the basic statute , now that they have won the underlying original case …

… More on the Mozilla Boycott …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,April 10th,2014

.. how did people find out about the campaign contribution ?

.. these days , disclosure is very public , and is very rapid . Once a campaign [issue or candidate] discloses the contribution to the relevant body [state or federal] , it is publshed on the Internet . Also , other sites specialize in organizing the data [federally ,  from the Federal Elections Commission] , so , these days , it comes out pretty darned quick ….

.. also , the problem is these days , is what do people do with that information . That is the big problem . What has happened with Mozilla and Brendan Eich is symbolic of what can happen these days … but mostly at the state level . It has not spread to the federal level , at least openly , not as of yet . it does happen , but it is spoaradic ….

.. People have to be responsible with the disclosure of this kind of information , and not misuse it … otherwise , threshhold could change , or the disclosure could end up going away ….

… Boycott Mozilla !! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,April 4th,2014

.. especially its browser products , Mozilla Firefox …

.. you might ask , why ?

.. [h/t — MoeLane]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. because Mozilla succumbed to political correctness and forced out its C.E.O. . You might think , Whoopie , big [bleeping] deal …

.. well , in this case , it is . Brendan Eich chose his personal beliefs over his job . He was forced out . He was pushed out . Why ? He contributed to the campaign for California ‘ s Proposition 8 [pro – traditional marriage] … and that one was six years ago , in 2008 ….

.. so , he contributed to an issue campaign . It seems these days that there is a determined effort by radical gays , lesblians , and lefties to harass , intimidate , and beat down anyone that disagrees with them . That especially includes those who are involed in things that are supposdedly ” special to gays and lezzies , like Mozilla , and also have contributed time or money to causes like Proposition 8 ….

.. this guy helped co – found the firm . He was just recently the C.T.O. (Chief Technology Officer) . Also , he was the inventor of JavaScript . For those of you who follow sports events on the web , JavaScript helps greatly for it to be followed in real time . And this is the way his old firm repays him ????

.. so , yes , these morons are using tactics that are far , far worse than McCarthyite in style or purpose … and they need to be called on it ….

.. they need to be hit in the pocketbook …. so hit them , and hit them hard . Boycott Mozilla , and dump its FireFox browser …
