Us ordinary working Canadian people mostly tend not to have the time to also manage, insure that all of our politicians, civil and public servants, and all of our tax money are now really working fully, effectively on our own behalf. And rather our subordinate personnel them not being too often no good, lazy. self serving, thieving, counterfeit employees of ours. We already tend to know this is really not being done even by our elected mayors, politicians who rather seem to be helping themselves get richer instead. But nevertheless some one has to do it, and it takes a lot of time, energy to do this as well. It is a full time job almost to so as well. We all honestly can admit everyone needs to be supervised, no one can be really trusted, not even the so called "professionals" as we all tend to know.The exemplary Public exposure and the prosecutions of the guilty serves as the first best initial approach in these matters. We have a rightful expectation to expect, demand the enforcement of justice, and the real exemplary prosecution of all of the guilty, staring with the guilty politicians, ministers, subordinates, guilty civil and public servants, professionals as well. Working with the news media and our elected representatives is one of the best way to do all of this too.(Prov 25:5 KJV) Take away the wicked from before the king, and his throne shall be established in righteousness.(1 Tim 6:6 KJV) But godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. 8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. 9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. 10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.Like i have said here is what I really find so pathetic now, todayThe whole Canadian federal government that has billions of dollars in surplus, the federal cabinet personally and evidently still cannot decently deal with, reply to the letters of mine, me the one single, little person.. and that is really really unacceptable, pathetic on their parts.. or is it rather too clearly is it the bad way they treat all other persons who write to them as well.The federal Conservatives promised in their election campaign to address the provinces' complaints that there is a fiscal imbalance which has left them without sufficient revenues, while Ottawa has been wrongfully been running fat budget surpluses, failing to meet their responsibilities, especially for health care, post-secondary education and maintaining basic infrastructure such as sewers, water, roads and bridges.Our even professing evangelical Christian PM Steve unacceptably not only falsely, sinfully idolizes, worships the "professional" persons, but he Stephen Harper is also working hard at helping the rich get richer and the poor persons stay poorer. Furthermore he Stephen Harper is trying to buy, bribe his way into a majority re-election, instead of trying to rightfully earn it. These are all also hypocritically non Christian values clearly as well. This is why Stephen Harper can never be popular, be fully accepted with the majority of the citizens as well or even can hope next to have a majority government.Hypocritical Prime Minister Stephen Harper is once again showing his own true colours and has announced the federal government will increase funding to.... .. Clearly the hypocritical Stephen Harper is now doing the same thing he had even criticized the last PM Paul Martin for, using the PM's office and the tax payer's money in campaigning now for the next federal election.. if this was not true he the hypocritical Prime Minister Stephen Harper would not have be grandstanding and making all of these big public spending announcements, rather he would have done it quietly without all the fanfare..And how much real, valid funding has the Hypocritical Prime Minister Stephen Harper now provided to date directly now to the social welfare recipients, the poor people, for their housing, shelters, and the seniors, pensioners too? where are his announcement firstly for these more important programs? (1 Tim 5:8 KJV) But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.If clearly a past drunken alcoholic premier could manage the Alberta province then in fact there was not much real effective management being done.. rather just more buck passing and lying spins... The Alberta's Minister's personal greed, and wrongful indifference towards it's biggest resources, the people themselves who are still wrongfully allowed to be neglected and abused is still unacceptable always.. still not many of Alberta's politicians do really care about the Albertan's good welfare, especially not the poor people, and not even Stephen Harper himself .. and this is how the rest of Canada tends to see Alberta last decade, past and present.. pathetic..OTTAWA -- Again even another new poll suggests the minority Tory government will not achieve a majority government again. The survey by Decima Research, for in Quebec, however, those who reported being disappointed with Harper outnumbered those who felt the opposite. And even when it comes to national voting intentions, the poll suggests the Conservatives continue to lag behind the numbers they picked up in the January election. The survey found 33 per cent support for the Tories among decided voters across the country compared with the 36.3 per cent they won in January. The past neglect of the needs of all Canadians, poor people included, recent fighting in the Middle East , the relationship between the Tories and Washington, Harper's inexcusable defence of Israel's wrong doing does not go over with many Canadians. Harper bad environment policies that support big business over our personal health caused a great loss of Conservative supporters here too.The findings also suggested that the Green Party has doubled its support to eight per cent from its 4.5 per cent election night showing.The federal Conservatives continue to be clearly their own worst enemies, who continue to take one step forward and two backwards in most of what they do. And If Stephen Harper fails to achieve a majority government which seems inevitable a decent party would certainly consider getting a new leader who really cares, and is in touch with the needs of the majority of CanadiansOTTAWA (CP) - Canada's privacy commissioner is questioning the need for proposed legislation that would allow police to spy on Internet users without obtaining a warrant. "As privacy commissioner, I want to have a lot of questions answered about why this is necessary because, up to now, I haven't been convinced," Jennifer Stoddart said in an interviewFace it illegal wiretapping by the police even has been carried out already in Canada for decades, even for political purposes. The rednecked ostrich Conservatives are like any other police state and they too will continue try to suppress free speech deemed undesirable by them.
Men and women are equally sinners, but so are the North American aboriginals. Natives too they really are just as much sinners as the white man. But all of the natives now also being imperfect is never a valid reason, right to deprive any native of their rights and/or to try to steal their land, inheritances from them, or to abuse anyone of them too."Earlier this summer, the Tories opened their nomination meetings across the country to elect candidates for the next federal election, allowing challenges to sitting MPs' nominations. The party is trying to complete all of its nomination meetings for incumbents in early fall so that it doesn't interfere with lawmaking and Parliamentary duties in Ottawa. There is, however, criticism from challengers to incumbent MPs who are accusing the party of favouring incumbent MPs. So far, nomination papers of at least three candidates–Paul Lalli in the B.C. riding of Fleetwood-Port Kells, David Xiao in the Alberta riding of Edmonton Centre, Walter Wakula in the Alberta riding of Calgary West–have been rejected without "specific reasons." The three would-be challengers have expressed their disappointment with the nomination process. "I'm disappointed, hurt and was not provided any specific grounds. I'm not happy with the decision," said Mr. Lalli, a long-time party member in an interview with The Hill Times. And Mr. Xiao, in an interview last week with the Canadian Press, also expressed similar feelings. "I'm a business immigrant from mainland China–the reason we came here is for democracy, freedom and equal opportunities," he said. "Ironically, I find myself in the s ituation of fighting for these principles. It's really unfortunate." Similarly, the Rocky Mountain Outlook community newspaper in Alberta reported last week that Doug Campbell, who intends to challenge sitting Tory MP Myron Thompson (Wild Rose, Alta.), was awaiting confirmation of whether his nomination papers would be accepted. "Campbell was left scrambling to get his nomination papers in order after learning of a clause at the last minute that does not consider nomination signatories who have been party members less than 21 days. However, the political rookie was able to have longer standing members sign on just in time for the Aug. 20 deadline," the Outlook reported. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Stephen Harper (Calgary Southwest, Alta.) last week ducked a question about the fairness of Tory nominations in a press conference. "With the new federal Conservatives it continues to be the same old story, one step forward and two backwards. And bad publicity like this is not what the new Conservative party needs even right now as well.. Do as I say and not do as I do. 54 per cent of Canadians responded that Ottawa had done a "terrible" job of being "open and honest.""Tory party members sue over selection By CP OTTAWA -- The federal Conservative party is facing a lawsuit from grassroots members over its nomination process, while officials continue to reject would-be candidates with no explanation. The latest snub is to Doug Campbell, an international agricultural economist and one-time adviser to Tory cabinet ministers who wanted to run against MP Myron Thompson for the nomination in Alberta's Wild Rose riding. As happened in at least three other ridings, Campbell was not given any reasons for his rejection. Instead he was told he could submit additional documentation in an effort to appeal the party's decision. Campbell said the nomination committee that interviewed him was handpicked by the sitting MP and his supporters. And because of gag agreements he signed with the party, he is not allowed to speak specifically about certain parts of his application process. "The possible innuendo that I failed a criminal check or security check or credit check -- I just totally know that there's nothing there," he said. "I have to say on the record, I didn't do anything wrong." The party, and Prime Minister Stephen Harper, publicly announced over the summer that no incumbent MP would be protected from challenges to his or her nomination. "The Federal Conservative party had lied when it said it would be different from the other political parties.. they had said put us into power and we will show you what we can do.. and what we see done by them is too often unacceptable, unelectable."Tories should have paid for poll The Gazette Wednesday, September 06, 2006 As opposition leader, Stephen Harper hammered the Liberal government relentlessly on ethics and accused it of serial abuses of power. Harper exploited that with great skill, clobbering the government at every turn about its lack of accountability - Now comes word from Canwest News Service that Prime Minister Harper's Conservative government used $85,446 of taxpayers' money merely weeks after the Jan. 23 federal election to track Canadians' support for his party's vaunted five priorities. There is always a thin line between legitimate government polling to better-tailor public programs and polls that serve the political needs of the party in power. But polling right after a national election to gauge support for an election platform voters passed judgment on weeks earlier is clearly a political and partisan act. It also seems clear that if you had asked Harper pre-Jan. 23 if Canadian taxpayers should foot the bill for such a rawly partisan poll, he would have thundered "no." It's small wonder that 54 per cent of Canadians responded that Ottawa had done a "terrible" job of being "open and honest." The Canadian Taxpayers Federation is right that the Conservative Party, not Canadians, should pay for such tracking polls - For a government that was supposed to herald a new beginning and run the country differently, this partisan poll at public expense smacks of the bad old days. The Conservative Party should repay the government and pay for such future polls from its coffers."The Conservative Party should really also stop being as bad as the other political parties it condemned.. Honesty, transparency, accountability but also clearly hypocrisy. It sure seems that the Conservatives cannot get even the basic right.
"The Federal Accountability Act, the FAA, or Bill C-2, "Bill C-2 is much weaker and loophole-filled than it should be, mainly because the Conservatives failed to include 21 promised measures in the bill, " Democracy Watch coordinator Duff Conacher.said . "Ironic as it may be, the unelected Senate should uphold voter rights by amending the bill to include the Conservatives' 21 promised measures, and send it back to the House of Commons to force all Conservative MPs to choose between keeping their election promises and breaking them." Some promises the government broke, Mr. Conacher said, include strengthening the Access to Information Act by not "implementing the Information Commissioner's recommendations for reform of the Access to Information Act" and "giving the Information Commissioner the power to order the release of information." Among the 21 "broken promises" in the Federal Accountability Act, Democracy Watch's website ( http://www.dwatch.ca/news.htm) says, is that "the public will not be allowed to file complaints with the proposed new Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner because the Conservatives broke their election promise to 'allow members of the public, not just politicians, to make complaints to the Ethics Commissioner." Bill C-2 requires that members of the public have an MP or Senator file a complaint on their behalf, Democracy Watch said. "What the Conservatives cannot be trusted again and again to keep their own promises?
OP-ED: Federal Conservatives' Bill C-2 (the so-called "Federal Accountability Act") is Flawed, But Not in the Ways Some Critics Claim (Hill Times, July 31, 2006) NEWS RELEASE: House of Commons Plays Self-Interested Games in Passing Loophole-Filled "Federal Accountability Act" -- Senate Should Uphold Voter Rights and Amend Bill C-2 to Force Conservatives to Keep 21 Broken Election Promises (June 26, 2006) NEWS RELEASE: Federal Conservatives Protect Cabinet Ministers by Breaking Promise to Close Loophole That Allows Ministers to Address Issues That Affect Their Business Interests -- Opposition Parties Not Focused on Correcting Many Major Flaws in Bill C-2, the "Federal Accountability Act" (June 13, 2006) WEBSITE ARTICLE: Federal Conservatives practise unethical politics as usual in relationships with corporate lobbyists (Canada.com website and several CanWest newspapers, June 12, 2006)Not the Conservative Promised Honesty, transparency, accountability but rather clearly more hypocrisy and broken promises are being carried out . The new federal Conservative government is clearly just as bad as the others before it, and is even guilty of partisan politics, the immoral using the tax payer's money to promote itself... and hypocritically doing the bad things while they were in opposition had complained about.. and clearly again new federal Conservatives under Stephen Harper takes one step forward and two backwards, alienating more and more people by what they do, even reminding us all again why we had rightfully kicked out the past Conservative government.
The dictatorial, oppressive new name fiasco follows with even more criticism over what many considered a partisan remake of the official Government of Canada website, which now has bold splashes of Tory blue and prominently features photographs of Prime Minister Stephen Harper. "Liberal MP Mark Holland says the rebranding will simply cheapen the name of the Canadian government and undermine its credibility."People will no longer see this as objective or independent, and they can't rely on it. It trivializes everything. People are going to regard it as propaganda and rhetoric, which is exactly what it is," Holland said. He said the move is an indication of Harper's "control freak tendency" to manage communications. Ottawa communications consultant Barry McLoughlin said governments are often accused of using official communications for partisan purposes. " None, none of this is acceptable Stephen Harper stop playing dirty useless politics and do real viable work or you will be fired too.. History often repeats itself.If the appointed Senate, senators cannot delay, block the passage of the Accountability bill then what is the point of having a Senate in the first place? The Senate is there for a valid reasons too. But certainly we need to review the method by which a senator is appointed and how one can be personally terminated as well for doing a lousy job. In fairness Recall should exist for all Senators, PM, MPs as well.
"Alberta's Energy Minister Greg Melchin was appointed early in 2005 to chair the Oilsands Ministerial Strategy Committee. It was supposed to co-ordinate the government's response to problems of housing, land acquisition and infrastructure, but government officials can't say how often it met or what it accomplished. Melchin was recently replaced as committee chair by Justice Minister Ron Stevens." And really not funny all of this reminds me of another pretentious manager.. Past personal Sins are being shouted from the housetops. Ironically while the pretentious Albertan Conservatives pride themselves on being competent fiscal and economic managers the opposite is clearly true to all .. the Conservative politicians of Alberta are reaping what they had sowed, mostly the lack of it thereof.. a deliberate self imposed short sightness that has now a high, dramatic Albertan citizen's negative costs .. "and high costs today of the expensive construction inflation is part of that picture." You won't hear any of the leadership candidates discuss it either -- because they were all there, including then-treasurer Jim Dinning, cheering Klein's obsession with paying down the debt. Klein "He was the hard-drinking, plain-talking, epitome of the right-wing Alberta yahoo." Even "Former Alberta Premier Peter Lougheed is criticizing his successor, saying Ralph Klein’s policies have left the sector in "a mess" And thus really none of them deserve to be the next premier of Alberta rightfully now as well.. note none of them. The present high price of public works is just a small part of the soft underbelly, skeletons in the closet of Premier Ralph Klein's own bad legacy. Premier Ralph Klein and his bad team have now openly been revealed to all as to what they really were, are, the pretentious and incompetent managers, who wrongfully put on their blinkers, dark glasses and chose only to deal with a small part of the overall big picture that needed to be dealt with. Klein's own incompetence, laziness, and his clear indifference to the needs of adequate management of the tax payer's money, and dealing with the needs of the citizens of Alberta is also part of the soft underbelly. Premier Klein should have been building more schools, more hospitals, and " Premier Klein should have been fixing roads and sewers in the mid-1990s, well before the oilsands investments sent the economy into high gear". Instead Klein alone had decreed the debt had to go. His bad team went along with him. "From the mid-1990s, all surplus funds were plowed into debt retirement to meet Klein's self-imposed deadline of 2005, the province's centennial. And let's not forget that taxpayers are subsidizing those inflation-induced construction costs by forgoing millions in royalties under the 1996 oilsands royalty agreement. In fact, that's another hidden cost of the Klein legacy. The higher the price tag on those oilsands megaprojects, the more oil goes out of the ground almost royalty-free. In this red hot economy, the owners of the depleting oil resource get even less than their normal share." There as a direct result wrongfuly today a real big, great price now, next being paid for Klein and his cabinet's poor acts, inactions and now even seen by all and not appreciated at all too. Now Klein and his past bad teams are even a bigger bad joke across Canada..and really not funny all of this reminds me of another pretentious manager, an Albertan too, the other loser, the PM, Stephen Harper and his own self imposed 5 priorities while he too now fails to deal with the bigger Canadian picture. And it is the citizens themselves whop will suffer the most for it too.Why those clear losers, the new fderal Conservatives now are doing so poorly? Just for a start it is because firstly they too really do not give a dam about the ordinary Canadian Joe blow, and secondly they are really no different than the other parties they bashed and criticized now too, and everyone can see it .. and yes it is true that these losers " the Conservatives are no where near what they would need for a majority government," despite Mr. loser, Stephen Harper's fixation with achieving one. Second, yes these losers they "are stalled or going backwards where they need to find new voters: in Quebec and Ontario." Conservatives are Losers says it all too. With those clearly losers, the new federal Conservatives, it continues to be the same old story, one step forward and two backwards.
The losers, the new Federal Conservative party had lied when it said it would be different from the other political parties.. they had said put us into power and we will show you what we can do.. and what we see done by them is too often unacceptable, unelectable. Those losers the Conservative Party should really also stop being as bad as the other political parties it condemned.. Honesty, transparency, accountability but also clearly hypocrisy. It sure seems that the Conservatives cannot get even the basic right. Not the Conservative Promised Honesty, transparency, accountability but rather clearly more hypocrisy and broken promises are being carried out . The new federal Conservative government is clearly just as bad as the others before it, and is even guilty of partisan politics, the immoral using the tax payer's money to promote itself... and hypocritically doing the bad things while they were in opposition had complained about.. and clearly again new federal Conservatives under Stephen Harper takes one step forward and two backwards, alienating more and more people by what they do, even reminding us all again why we had rightfully kicked out the past Conservative government. The loser's dictatorial, oppressive new name fiasco follows with even more criticism over what many considered a partisan remake of the official Government of Canada website, which now has bold splashes of Tory blue and prominently features photographs of Prime Minister Stephen Harper. The loser, the Power hungry Harper apparently thinks this could be a good opportunity for him to secure a majority government because the Liberals are supposedly leaderless but it is still very unlikely that the Conservatives can win enough seats for a majority for one tends to wonders if Canadians want to head back to the polls for what would clearly be a shameless attempt at a power grab. "Harper may view this as an opportunity to benefit himself, but Canadians, who tend to love knocking leaders off their perches, likely may see it as an opportunity to say no." The loser PM Harper's reality of a really poor show is also evidenced even by the fact that while "Harper government had promised to help the more than one million post-secondary students in this country come up with the funds to pay their tuition in September. Instead, a mere five per cent will receive a few hundred dollars this year and that’s likely to be eaten up by tuition hikes,” said Liberal Critic for Human Resources and Skills Geoff Regan. the Conservative plan does nothing to address the issue of access to universities and colleges for low income Canadians, and offers only a pittance to the handful of Canadian students it will reach." will cause him even to lose the student's votes. The loser PM Harper will likely lose with the Liberal senate as well. Now also if the appointed Senate, senators cannot delay, block the passage of the Accountability bill then what is the point of having a Senate in the first place? The Senate is there for a valid reasons too. But certainly we need to review the method by which a senator is appointed and how one can be personally terminated as well for doing a lousy job. In fairness Recall should exist for all Senators, PM, MPs as well.
Some governmental funded groups do not disclose which other groups they hand put money to receive money, or how much even, wrongfully arguing that publicizing details violates the principle of solicitor-client confidentiality. No matter what group is getting the money, all, all taxpayers have a right at least to know where all, note all of their tax money is going.. and how much as well. It is clearly immoral, absurd to try to hide, deny any of this money form all of the taxpayers as well. All groups, persons should also have the right to equally governmental funding as well. The showing of any special favours, attention to any ethnic, cultural, sex, religious group is clearly unacceptable, immoral, discrimination,, shows false partiality as well.."Conflict between women's groups heating up By Jim Coggins AN ONGOING CONFLICT between two Canadian women's groups was the focus of some mainstream media coverage recently. The object of the controversy was a letter sent by REAL Women of Canada (RW) to Prime Minister Stephen Harper some months ago, which prompted feminist organizations to launch their own letter-writing campaign in response.
On April 4, RW sent a letter to Harper and Members of Parliament who are considered 'friendly' to RW's perspective. The letter urged that the government cease funding Status of Women Canada (SW), a government agency, claiming it is discriminatory because it supports only feminist perspectives -- and thus, does not speak for all Canadian women. The letter also urged disbanding Parliament's Standing Committee on the SW.
Over the summer, that letter prompted a letter-writing campaign in defence of SW, promoted by various feminist organizations and left-wing groups, including the Canadian Union of Public Employees.
The issue is deeply political. RW sees the election of a Conservative government last January as an opportunity to disband SW, which it says has no purpose except "to promote the views of a handful of extremist feminist organizations at the expense of the Canadian taxpayer."
In turn, Liberal Party leadership candidate Scott Brison has made the matter a campaign issue, writing a public letter to Harper defending SW. Maria Minna, Liberal critic for the SW, has also defended the group, dismissing RW as an "extreme right-wing group."
Beverly Oda, the current Conservative minister responsible for the SW, has not commented on the issue. However, a spokesperson for her told the Canadian Press that the minister receives "thousands of letters across a range of issues," and added that the government "supports the full participation of women in society and supports gender equality through all policy and legislative considerations."
That declaration stops short of answering the question of what the government will do with the government agency. RW has noted that, too, are dedicated to equal treatment for women; the 'E' in REAL stands for 'Equality.'
SW has an annual budget of about $23 million, and passes on a little more than half of that amount in the form of grants to various non-governmental organizations.
The big issue
Laurie Geschke, national president of RW, told CC.com there are three main reasons for the call to cease funding SW. The first, she said, is that the agency is not accountable, receiving money from Canadian taxpayers and then using that money to promote positions that Canadians don't necessarily support.
The second issue, Geschke claimed, is that SW does not treat women equally, choosing to support some women's organizations but not others. Years ago, when RW first applied for funding from SW, SW refused to even send an application form. When RW re-applied under the name Lesbian Mothers of Canada, it was welcomed with open arms.
The third issue is that many of the programs SW funds are agencies such as women's shelters, which are a provincial government responsibility.
When asked if the government should fund RW instead of SW or if it should even fund both agencies, Geschke said no. "We don't think any group should be funded. If an agency is lobbying the government, it should be supported by people willing to put their own money into it."
RW has about 55,000 members across Canada, and says many of the 'feminist' groups SW Canada funds are "shell" organizations with few members and no grassroots support. It suggests that many of these organizations would collapse without government funding.
Underneath this central issue are a number of other issues. RW says it supports "a Judeo-Christian understanding of marriage and family life." It also calls itself "nondenominational", which implies it is an essentially Christian organization.
However, Geschke noted that while most board members come from a Christian background, some come from other faiths or no faith at all. RW's membership has included Muslims and atheists, for instance. Some have expressed the concern that if Christian voices are silenced, other voices may be next.
All members, however, support the fundamental philosophy of RW, and this has brought RW into conflict with SW on a number of issues.
For instance, SW is in favour of legalized abortion, while RW characterizes itself as pro-life.
SW has strongly campaigned for the Liberal party's national daycare program. RW, on the other hand, argues that the ideal situation is for families to raise their own children in their own homes, which means women should be able to stay home and raise their children if they want to.
SW has funded organizations that advocate the legalization of solicitation for prostitution; receiving money for sex is currently legal in Canada, but actively and publicly offering sexual services for money is not.
RW sees prostitution as harmful to women, men and society at large, and wants prostitution made illegal; it particularly calls for harsh penalties against those who profit from forcing young women into prostitution.
SW also funds lesbian organizations which lobby for gay rights, whereas RW supports traditional Judeo-Christian sexual morality.
History The current debate is only the latest skirmish in what has been a decades-long struggle. SW was founded by Pierre Trudeau's Liberal government in the early 1970s, to promote women's equality. RW was founded in 1983 partly to provide a counterweight to SW, since it felt the government agency was not representing the views of all Canadian women. In the first years, RW did eventually receive a few small grants from SW. However, that funding ceased in 1996. In 1999 representatives of RW were invited, along with other women's groups, to attend an open conference run by SW. However, feminist groups there demanded that RW representatives be banned from the meeting and eventually succeeded in preventing them from having any meaningful participation. RW has not been invited to any SW conferences since.

The campaign was kickstarted by REAL Women of Canada, one of Canada's most vocal organizations of social conservatives. It has long urged the federal government to axe Status of Women -- but this time its message is being widely discussed and supported among some in the Conservative Internet community.
