Kevconpat 5 months, 2 weeks ago on Letter - 2014 is most important election of the century

Why do you always pick on SEATTLE? It is a wonderful City, Power house of employment (FOR) the State of Wa. and BTW my Family lives there (as) well in Vancouver BC, Canada. My Parents, in their 80's now- are loving wonderful people, not anything like what you try to make out. them to be as Seattlelites........Never mind namvet- you and others like yourself are a dying small group. Say what you like..... I love this country and Canada and you are welcome to say what you please - even if it is ridiculous,(most of the time). The truth can hurt, OUCH! Wait........you are chomping at the bit aren't you!?

Kevconpat 5 months, 2 weeks ago on Spokane’s first pot buyer says he’s getting fired

So as of this morning, Friday......... 'Spokane Guy' is back at work with his employers blessing. He bought pot legally and was not at work while he used the pot legally. His employer apparently now states he did nothing wrong. (Policy) say's nothing against the guy or any employee from using pot while not in the workplace on days off where He is employed. Confusing, a bit. Stay tuned. He may have been exuberant but not an idiot. Read the facts.

Kevconpat 5 months, 3 weeks ago on Letter - Dogs, despite ban, were all over park on Fourth

I love Dogs- however, why is there a 'NO DOGS' in the parks signs when there are zillions running about? The worse thing, DUH- is the poop that happens! The Dog's lazy (owners) not picking up the poop!. They're truly the problem... as we know Dogs do do, no pun intended!!! poop! Also the possibility of dog's jumping on surprised people is a nuisance, but what if a dog bites an adult person minding their own business while simply walking through the park? How about a child- even worse! Let's get some consistency here at least. Come on WW... Dogs in the parks, ok, leashed and owners with poop bags! Problem solved! Oh- and if a dog bites a person, then sue the heck out of the owner! I love our parks. I love Dogs. I do not like lazy dog owners. My apologies to the MOSTLY responsible dog owners. Good Dog!

Kevconpat 5 months, 3 weeks ago on US highway fund running on near empty

Again, we pretty much agree! Politicians have a blast spending money....... Speaking of Patty Murray brings me to Cathy McMorris Rodgers. The wing-woman who never seems to utter her own thoughts; she always appears to be very scripted and little else than the stand in female side-line with Boehner & guys. I believe; infact I truly believe- woman can be strong honest politicians- on their own. I've seen little of this. Why be like most of the seasoned guy's? A lot of rhetoric and little substance. OBTW, women do have a personal right if they want to use contraceptives: I'm not talking about who pay's for the contraceptive(s), I mean they have a right, period. Why do you and almost all conservative males have to attach to their choice that these women are little more than uncontrollable whores? That is demeaning to women in general. Over 90% use or have chosen birth control. (Read) you comments from a few days ago. Carefully planning families they can afford and provide for, married or not seems very responsible, wouldn't you agree? Men should be so insightful. In procreation the old fashioned way it takes two to tangle, right! Happy Independence Day to all.

Actually I do think that the xl pipeline would bring about a lot of jobs, but perhaps at a price. There is always a risk to the environment. It is a balancing act, but I'd say I am for a 'go' on this issue. I am not a critic. Are you? Why are you always so snarky? I have my opinions- and yes I think that the congressional Republicans will hold up on the Hwy Transportation bill. My opinion. Further more, I don't put a lot of trust into either main party.

Come on now; the lives and lively hoods of hwy. construction workers as well as all citizens who use our highways deserve the US Federal Hwy. Trust Fund be funded. Democrats and the Pres. are ready to pass it. The next move is up to the Republicans. Please step up to the plate. This should be a bipartisan slam dunk.

Kevconpat 6 months ago on Supreme Court rules employers not required to cover contraceptives

I believe the decision by the Supremes was a reasoned one. A Deeply religious family and their business model, 'Hobby Lobby'- for decades. Precedent was clearly in play here. It is clear now if you seek employment with Hobby Lobby, you will know these restrictions. This family business is not against all forms of birth control. Further more the vast majority of employees elsewhere are not covered under this edict, so simple buyer beware... those seeking employment. This affects Hobby Lobby and about 80 similarly aligned businesses throughout the US.
