Letter: Linares Debate Response Misunderstood

To the Editor:

I attended the debate between State Senator Art Linares, Emily Bjornberg, and Colin Bennett on October 8th at Valley Regional High School. With regard to the letter from Sue Huybensz, who also attended the debate, I am certain that she misunderstood the discussion. In particular, she completely misinterpreted the response by Senator Linares regarding his stand on the SCOTUS Hobby Lobby decision. In no way did Senator Linares say that he is opposed to a woman’s right to choose. He pointed out that this issue is not germane to candidates running for the State Senate. If he were running for the United States Senate or were in line for consideration for a position on the Supreme Court, the issue of what methods of birth control must be paid for by a private enterprise would be a worthwhile topic for debate. At a debate for election to State Senator, the issue is a red herring. When Art shared that he was raised Catholic, he was pointing out that nobody’s personal and religious beliefs supersede the laws of our country. The aim of Senator Linares on the evening of October 8th was to bring the debate’s discussion back to issues that are germane to CT residents, issues that a state senator is empowered to do something about: returning prosperity and top-notch educational and  professional opportunity to the residents of our state.  As a CT woman, I plan to cast my vote for Senator Art Linares.

Sincerely,

Alice van Deursen

Here is my response:

I completely agree with you that Mr. Linares was stating that the SCOTUS decision was not applicable to his candidacy. Its just that I completely disagree. I think that we need strong advocates for women’s rights in the capitol as well as in all elected/appointed public positions. Most moderate Republicans would fit this bill. Have a look around you at what is happening in this country. States, such as Texas, Mississippi, North Dakota, Michigan, Colorado, Wisconsin, North Carolina and Ohio are making it more difficult for women to obtain abortions. Those decisions are all being made in state senates.  The Hobby Lobby decision a distinct slippage of women’s rights. Are you aware that women earn 23 cents less on the dollar than men, that fewer women enter STEM studies than men, that women are still discriminated against in our country? Across the board, women’s rights are threatened by right-wing extremists such as Mr. Linares seems to be and it is a constant fight to maintain what women have won. His views are not in keeping with this district or the times we live in. These reasons are why women’s issues are not a “red herring”.

If his comment about his religion was to say that religion doesn’t matter, then why didn’t he just say that? Are his debating skills that lacking, or was he just hedging or being disingenuous? Whether I misinterpreted his meaning or not, why couldn’t he just be honest and open about his feelings on this issue and women’s rights like the other candidates were? Perhaps women’s issues don’t matter that much to Mr. Linares. But, we’ll never know because he won’t agree to another debate.

You can thank your long gone sisters for your right to vote for a candidate that might take rights away from you.

Recent letter to the editor re: State Senator Art Linares

Here is a recent letter to the editor that I wrote about CT State Senator Art Linares:

AN OPEN LETTER TO REPUBLICAN WOMEN ON ELECTION DAY

I am a fellow Republican woman who always wanted to be married, but I wanted a career instead of children. Thankfully, when I headed to college in 1974, I had access to birth control and due to Roe v. Wade I also had access to what could be a very excruciating choice. [Thankfully I never had to make that choice.] So it was time travel for me to hear Art Linares’ answer to this question at the debate held on October 8 at the Valley Regional High School: “Where do you stand on the SCOTUS Hobby Lobby decision?” Linares only stated that “he was raised Catholic and isn’t up for appointment as a Supreme Court Justice.” In other words, Linares is against a woman’s right to choose even birth control!

Haven’t we already dealt with this issue 40 years ago? This extremely right-wing view could have totally changed my life and taken my choice to have a career away from me. Also, I would note that extremist views such as Linares’ are not a fit with his own district’s constituency.

Birthing a child sometimes can be life-threatening. Linares doesn’t care: “No exceptions.” I have had a colleague who died from a brain hemorrhage while she was trying to have a child.

I may have wanted to hear more on Linares’ stances, but it seems he doesn’t like to show up to debates.

Please, if you value your choices as a woman, do not vote for Art Linares.

Monserrat stars newcomer on StagHomme.com hung Spanish stud Max Toro and Damien Crosse.

Directed by Damien Crosse & Francesco D’Macho.

Review:

MONSERRAT [sic] has a stunning and idyllic location, beautiful ethnic music and a pretty drive to the Catalonian mountains. There, hung model Max Toro swaps blow jobs with Damien Crosse [6 times!], then fucks him doggy style in the front driver’s seat of an auto. Both men had oral cum shots. One will get not much more than that out of MONSERRAT; as it is a straight forward fuck-flick.

The camera work featured an artistic shot through a shrub, which was a bit spoiled by a shakey camera. The remainder of the camera work was fine.

Highly recommended.

See the full feature here.

Raging Stallion Studio’s THE TOURIST Reviewed

The-Tourist-XXX

Rogan Richards is The Tourist, a lost and bewildered traveler wandering the streets of Madrid, and this is his story, seen through the lens of multiple award-winning director Steve Cruz. As Rogan tries to get his bearings, fate puts him in the crosshairs of pimp, hustler, and all-around bad boy Abraham Al Malek. Speaking in his native Spanish, Abraham plies Rogan with a heavy come on, finally seducing him with two English words: “Fuck Me!” Little does Rogan know that he is about to be captured and made into Abraham’s plaything. Two of Abraham’s hustlers, Dario Beck and Donato Reyes, pick up a john, Alessio Veneziano, and bring him back to the pimp’s flat for a three way thick with fur, spit and cum. Paco swings by to have some fun with Abraham, but they’re interrupted by Rogan’s cries for help. Abraham sends Paco in to silence Rogan, but a sexual spark ignites when Paco and Rogan lock eyes for the first time. Abraham diverts his attention to Bruno Boni, who pays the pimp with both cash and sex. After Bruno and Abraham unload, Abraham drifts off to sleep… until he’s awakened by The Tourist himself. Lose yourself in the shadowy, seductive world of the Tourist’s journey.

Review:

Rogan Richards drives THE TOURIST with his intensity and passion. In the first scene, he brings the heat and intensity to Abraham Al Malek with his powerfucking; Rogan shows that he is a fuck machine! In Rogan’s next scene with Paco, there is palpable electric chemistry that lights both men with sexual passion. It’s as if Paco knows all of Rogan’s buttons and keeps pushing them. I loved when they punched each other in the pecs and abs! What a hot fucking scene!

The three-some with Dario Beck, Donato Reyes, and Alessio Veneziano was a bit slower paced, but still had hot hairy men having a wonderful time with each other. The final scene featuring Bruno Boni and Abraham had some very pretty oral cum shots.

I adored the plot of THE TOURIST and thought that Rogan was able to carry it off with admirable acting skills. The twist at the end was killer! What fun!

I really must commend the video skills of Steve Cruz. Each sexual act was filmed from as many as 4 – 5 angles, which is just incredible! The close-ups left nothing to be desired – one gets one’s fill of gaping assholes and furry bottoms! In the three-some, the composition of the men was astounding and unique in at least one shot. The quality of videography in THE TOURIST surpasses that of industry standards and was quite excellent.

The location in Madrid, Spain was terrific and I enjoyed seeing the details of the apartment on camera, such as the domed brick ceiling and the satin bedspread and pillows, as well as the outside shots of the city.

The music was terrible; couldn’t a Spanish guitar be used even for a few seconds????

Direction and editing were fabulous. THE TOURIST was a very enjoyable movie with all bearded, manly men fucking like crazy!

Highly, highly recommended.

Bonus Review:

One of the bonus scenes is from HEAT OF THE MOMENT and stars Pedro Andreas and Petter Fill. Notably, this scene is great because we get to see Pedro with his boyfriend of the time. You can tell that Pedro is in love as he savors Petter’s cock and because he allows Petter to top him. At one time while Petter is fucking Pedro, he hangs from the pergola; what a couple of beautiful men they are, certainly a feast for the eyes! HEAT OF THE MOMENT is a highly recommended bonus scene from a terrific movie shot entirely in South America!
