I've attached a two-page [PDF] document . Please read and let me know what you think.
One might also note that Colorado has an Equal Rights Amendment in its state Constitution that requires equal treatment without regard to sex. It seems quite evident that SB05-181 doesn't meet that standard.
Thanks, Dylan. I have had several such messages from the good Dr. I think he is more interested in trashing me than accomplishing anything. What a terrible spokesman for the cause, he is doing far more damage than good. You guys ought to buy him a Dale Carnegie book or send him to school to learn how to influence people. It would be worth it. No wonder so many legislators want nothing to do with his organization.
I didn't start out with the intention of "trashing" you, as you put it. However, you have passed legislation that literally enslaves thousands of men. You have put yourself in the same position as a South Carolina senator in 1855 but I think you missed the horrors of the Civil War in your education. Remarkably, it was a group in North Carolina that called my attention to your legislation. And while my wife still owns 80-odd acres in South Carolina I am not of the opinion that we should pick up some darkies and head back to that time and place to start drinking mint juleps on the plantation. Thus, I do condemn you for your actions.
Further, you have caused another massive fracture in the already crumbling bedrock of families and marriage on which our civilization rests. I've commented before that any man who understands current Colorado laws has to be functionally insane to marry and a drooling idiot to sire a child. Just how long do you think our society can last with legislation like SB05-181? If my actions are damaging to you because you have made adultery profitable, encouraged infidelity, enslaved men, and destroyed children, all of which you seem to think are "good," then I am doing my job as a citizen and in leading the Equal Justice Foundation.
Somewhere I think you've missed the fact that the Equal Justice Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization and we don't sponsor or lobby for legislation but work to educate the public and government officials. Because I am one of the leading scientists of my generation I typically testify as an expert witness. As such I assume that at least 50% of the group are against me in any case when I testify. Further, I took my sensitivity training with Marine Corps infantry and, if the naked truth offends you, you are certainly in the wrong game. And, as a Marine I took an oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, as did my eldest son.
People don't listen to me because I'm a nice guy, or took some flaky politically-correct class from Dale Carnegie as you suggest. People with intelligence pay attention to me because, when you Google on famous earth scientists, in the history of the science there are only 154 of us listed, and I'm one of the few still living. People listen to me because I was listed among the 50,000-odd in Who's Who in the World years before George W. Bush, and in Who's Who in America years before Bill Owens. I don't set out to win battles with my charm. I win because I present the best information available, and have it well documented.
Last year my biggest success was testifying as an expert witness at her request in favor of a bill, HB04-1296 put forward by Rep. Alice Madden (D-Boulder). I was also able to enlist the support of Rep. Dave Schultheis (R-El Paso) and several other conservative Republicans for Rep. Madden's bill. That bill was passed and ten Colorado counties were required to do hand recounts of ballots in November 2005 because of needed provisions of that bill. I do hope you agree that honest, open, and verifiable elections are an essential part of our republic?
I would also note that during testimony before the House State, Veterans, and Military Affairs committee on HB04-1296 that Larimer County Clerk and Recorder Scott Doyle lied to the committee about the prevalence of voting problems in Colorado, a fact I pointed out to the committee and presented clear documentation as proof. I did mention to you before that when you find yourself in a hole the first thing to do is stop digging. However, you continue digging. May I suggest again that you stop?
As most of the links on your web site don't work I haven't been able to find out much about your background. However, as I live in Senator McElhany's district perhaps he will be so kind as to fill me in the next time I run into him as to why you endorse adultery and slavery, the antithesis of Republican values?
