We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

Scroll down and read about John McKay one of the US attorneys, who was fired. You will note that the only people who supported his appointment in the first place were the democrats in spite of the fact that he claims to be a Republican. You will also note that his older brother held that job before him.
As i asked over @ Flares, how many different defeat-insuring war-plans have they now put forward? Fifty? What a travesty, what a complete disgrace. What are we gonna do? Revolt? They're already blowing the pork barrel open, even tho running a public approval number lower even then Bushitler's. It's as if they're beyond caring about anything at all.
I really think it will help if people can see the career evolution of one of the fired US attorneys. I have forwarded the links to archived articles in the Seattle Times several times and the messages have not been posted. Please advise your readers that Mr. John McKay was first considered by the democrats to be a corrupt republican. Then after their own US attorney (Clinton appointee) was found to be lacking in ethics, they put John McKay (R) into her position. That was because Mr. John McKay's older brother had also been a US attorney and played let's make a deal. We then proceeded to have a completely corrupted election which gave the democrats the excuse for moving into the governor's mansion. Why? Because, John McKay owed the democrats a favor, so he refused to examine the election process for fraud. Nice guys those Republicans turned democrats.
There you go BL! You got it! One of our very few tall buildings is a bank building. At the top of this building is a lovely bar with a fantastic view--that is where both sides meet over drinks to negotiate a way forward. I and a few others think it would be better if they resorted to the rules of democracy, and a well informed electorate. Too bad--that is no longer standard procedure in WA.
