A Report From the Activist Front

The following brief memorandum has arrived from a member of the SAVE Services lobbying organization:
"SAVE lobbyists hit the House of Reps and the Senate today to discuss VAWA reform. We had meetings all day long. I can't speak for the people in the House, but I can tell you that all of our meetings in the Senate went well. Some went way better than even I expected. Said to us today, "This is a conversation that happens a lot around here." And this was in the office of a Democrat. Our message is getting through. They finally realize that we have been telling them the truth all along. Thank you God!"
 I figured it would put a bright spot on your day to read that.

Now, for the benefit of feminists and other idiots who refuse to pull their heads out, I am providing a link to SAVE's proposed Partner Violence Reduction Act. It is meant to to take the place of VAWA, and there is nothing in it which any honest person of sane morality could object to -- or at least not on the pretense that it betrays women! It amounts to little more than VAWA stripped of all that is sexist, anti-male, unconstitutional, or shady. So if you can read the proposed version and still insist that VAWA should be passed unmodified, then I have no time for you because you would clearly rather see VAWA remain sexist, anti-male, unconstitutional and shady.

 The document works through all of the proposed alterations and explains, in crystal-clear language, the reasoning behind each one. Click, and the PDF will begin downloading:

The problem I have with this proposal is this that it merely siphons men into the already-burgeoning feminist-constructed Abuse Industry. Why not scrap such laws altogether and simply prosecute so-called domestic violence under existing laws? There are already laws against battery, for example.

I see this proposal as only expanding the welfare state; and making men into a 'victim' class.

There are various other provisions I find objectionable as well: it seems to support IMBRA. Also, creation of a new bureaucracy to administer the program. Their definition of 'minors' is also ill-defined.

Eric, you're right, and I too would just as soon scrap the entire DV industry. But. . . this gets things rolling in that direction. It is a way to inflict heat and pressure on the supporters and VAWA, because it forces them to stand up and show their colors.

Politics requires getting morally dirty. One has to be a hypocrite (at least publicly) and expect to change the world. Compromises have to be made.

Let say you have 10 clear goals, but one of the goals if campaigned for will result in the other 9 being demolished by association. Isn't it better to suck it up and abandon the 1 in order to protect the 9?

The alternative is to sit on the sidelines pontificating on "truth" while those who get stuck in get all the results.

hmm... @1115, I was going to say, essentially, the same thing. If you can't erase a lie, work against it as best you're able, don't quit if you can't achieve perfection. If you can't stop wawa, dilute it, correct it, alter it. better than next time, later, you'll get another chance. just like if you can't destroy an enemy, harass him, if you can't harass him, trip, undermine, slow, confuse him, work against (him) now, destroy later. fyi, I do not mean destroy women, only, destroy feminism, and all it's lies.
