LOL, Roy if the votes of voters who didn't vote counted, we'd have a solidly Democratic federal House and Senate. Do you really want to go there?

Ah, PearlY with the "we could tell you, but you wouldn't listen" gambit. How about you spell it out, and even if I go nyah, nyah, nyah (as you suggest) other readers might be enlightened.

NewInWW 5 days, 10 hours ago on Editorial: Obama’s plan for free college isn’t really free

Apparently the right doesn't want to do anything about income inequality, doesn't want to raise the minimum wage, doesn't want to educate our young, doesn't want federal investment in infrastructure (wait for more bridge collapses) and doesn't want universal health care. About the only thing the right seems to want is to destroy unions.

So does the right see everything as just fine or does it have a plan for addressing some of what many see as our issues? If there's a plan, I'd like to hear it, because market based trickle down economics (the current plan) has pretty much destroyed the middle class in this country over the last 35 years.

NewInWW 1 week, 1 day ago on Letter - Where did our republic go?

Loyd, if you see seat belt and helmet laws as a loss of freedom, I get it. But for me the cost of that freedom is that if you suffer serious injuries as a result of the exercise of your freedom, the rest of us can exercise our freedom not to underwrite your medical care either through insurance premiums or taxes.

So until you can execute enforceable waivers of any and all medical care following an automotive or motorcycle accident, I guess you, like the rest of us, are stuck with the current situation.

If you're really unhappy, I suggest you seek the right to be untreated by any medical professionals if injured while riding without a helmet or traveling in a car without your seatbelt fastened. Until then, your health is our concern and we have the right to expect you not to be stupid.

NewInWW 2 weeks ago on Letter - Tired of being taxed?

Not only should we not support a pool for the community's children, we should correct all of the errors of the past.

Where were the fiscally responsible citizens that are now are so vocal when Walla Walla wasted funds on things like parks, schools, sidewalks and streets? If children want an elementary or high school education, let them move somewhere where the residents care about the future. No one made people have kids here in Walla Walla.

Similarly, if people want to walk on sidewalks or drive on paved streets, let them figure out how to build those luxuries for themselves. For example, I rarely drive south and east of downtown, why should I pay for infrastructure in those areas? Also, my house sits well above the flood plain, so my vote is that the Army corps of engineers cease all flood control efforts because they do nothing for me.

All we need is some sensible reforms, and we can stop all of this silly government spending on things that don't directly benefit me.

Posting the same link 700 times is not the same as having something useful to say.

It would be more productive to show how the statistics cited by supporters of AGW were wrong, but that would require facty and sciencey stuff.

NewInWW 1 month ago on Senate report: Spokane psychologists paid $80 million for torture program

PearlY - "Every year since the 1970s has brought more regulations and more regulators. Those years just haven't brought clearer thinking."

With respect to banking this is simply a deliberate lie, and PearlY knows it.

You clearly don't understand the rule - open carry while black = menacing, nothing more is needed in the US of A.

Open carry is having a firearm or something that looks like a firearm while white; menacing is open carry while black. There, isn't that easy?

NewInWW 1 month, 1 week ago on Letter - Perhaps American public is ‘stupid’

The American public that swallowed Reaganomics and continues to swallow it in the guise of limiting taxes on the "job creators" is, indeed, as dumb as a bag of hammers.
