Is This a Threat?


The Washington Federation of State Employees has issued a video from Western State Hospital  (a mental hospital) asking Washington State citizens to call the legislature to prevent cuts to their budget.

DCG is right. They always threaten cuts for the most sympathetic and/or violent outcomes first, while entitlements are spared.

Yep. This state will bend over backwards for bicyclists. There’s a reason we call the Seattle Mayor “Mayor McShwinn”…

I spent two years there in my younger days. Took some classes at Edmonds Community College and had a job at the Long’s Drugs in Kirkland. Beautiful area, but liberal as the day is long.
