Happy Now You Know Dino Day!

Today is Now You Know Dino Day, a statewide event sponsored by NARAL/Pro-Choice Washington, who wants all our state’s voters to know the truth about Dino Rossi’s stance on reproductive rights.  For example, did you know that Rossi:

  • worked against I-120, which codified Roe v. Wade into Washington state law?
  • voted NO on a bill that would require health insurance companies that cover prescriptions such as Viagra for men to cover birth control for women?
  • sponsored a bill seeking federal money for ineffective abstinence-only sex-education for Washington schools?
  • believes pharmacists should be able to refuse to fill doctor-prescribed prescriptions based on non-medical, personal reasons?
  • compares women’s health care to sports drink preferences?

One of the more disturbing things I’ve seen in poll after poll as that more than a third of pro-choice women don’t know that Republicans Dino Rossi and Dave Reichert are anti-choice, opposing not just access to safe, legal abortions, but to contraception and medically accurate sex education.  That’s why over 300 volunteers in 15 cities across the state are waving signs during evening rush hour tonight to let voters know the truth about Rossi… that he is bad for the women of Washington state.

If you want to join the effort, go to the Now You Know Dino website for more information.

    Playing the fear card.
    The democrats favorite tool.
    Does dino rossi, if elected, have the power to ban abortions?

  2. 2

    Chris spews:

    As governor he has the power to sign or veto any legistlation. A lot of little things come up that can benefit or hurt women’s health. An outright ban on abortion? Probably not – but he would if he got the chance because he’s said he’d “vote his conscience” – which means Dino Rossi’s personal beliefs trump the beliefs of the women in Washington.

  3. 3

    ArtFart spews:

    If I1000 passes and Rossi becomes gov, would he “vote his conscience” if (more like when) a bill lands on his desk requiring insurance companies to cover life-extending treatments preferentially over paying for patients to off themselves?

  4. 4

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    1) The economy is in the tank.
    2) Gregoire increased spending by 33% or $8 BILLION resulting in a $3.2 BILLION Shortfall for the next Budget Biennium (likely to grow to $4 BILLION the day after the Election)
    3) Unemployment is at 6% and growing.
    4) Boeing Machinists are on strike again and Boeing makes a clear statement that they are tired of this (aka looking for the door).
    5) 8,000-10,000 State Workers will likely be laid off in the next year.
    6) The State Retirement Fund is about $8-9 BILLION Underfunded due to huge stock market and realestate losses since 6/30/07.


    Gregoire and her loyal allies (aka TEAM HORSESASS) will do anything to deflect away from the Deficit situation Gregoire creating by overspending when she KNEW it was not sustainable!

    @1 Playing the fact card, Marvin. Misleading voters about what they’ll do in office is the Repugs’ favorite tool.

  7. 7

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    Is that pregnant barefoot girl who follows Rossi around his wife, daughter, or mistress?*

    * Hey, just kidding! It’s a joke! You know, the old “keep ‘em barefoot and pregnant” joke? But some Republicans really do think that way, you know …

    Well, I’ll say this for Repugs, they’re not quite as bad as the Taliban, who stone women for learning to read. Repugs merely want to burn the books.

  8. 8

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @4 Almost a third of the $8 billion went for plugging the $2.2 billion deficit that Rossi left her. The rest repaired roads the Republican-controlled state senate neglected for over a decade and funded two education initiatives passed by voters.

    Nice try, Cynical. Thanks for playing. Better luck next time.

  9. 9

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @5 Aren’t they all the same person? But if I had to choose from those 3 names, my vote for stupidest dickhead would go to Marvin, and I’d give close runner-up recognition to the other two.

    I gree. I am now hearing that Sarah Palin is blaming the current financial crisis on the not-yet-implemented plans of the not-yet-elected Barack Obama.

  12. 13

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    You are hallucinating again on those mushrooms in your hole!
    No one believes you can blame Rossi Rog.
    He was out of ofice for a full year and the Dems APPROVED the additional spending after he left.
    Both the Times & P-I have debunk that Gregoire/TEAM HORSESASS Myth!!
    Bad Try=No Sale

    Spending is up $8 BILLION in the face of a recession and NOTHING is Gregoire’s fault.
    That’s Gregoire’s position.
    Not believable Rog…cuz it ain’t true.
    Gregoire authorized every cent of that $8 BILLION of increased spending. PERIOD!
    She can run like a rabbit, but she cannot hide from the facts.

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    Daddy Love spews:

    Just because an issue is one you do not care about does not mean that no one does.

    True enough..
    It’s just that pocketbook issues have come to the forefront overwhelmingly.
    I think it may backfire to run away from them.
    McCain has done that…and he has dropped in the polls.
    Why is Gregoire immune from running away from the consequences of her decisions???
    I don’t think she is.
    Rossi is connecting the dots.
    Gregoire’s Spending Increase===Tax Increases==Loss of more jobs

    I know you dislike this equation.
    But it’s more probable than not.

  14. 17

    Daddy Love spews:

    15 Cyn

    No GREGOIRE is “connecting the dots”

    Rossi won’t talk about his stances on reproductive issues….voted against Roe v. Wade….voted against requiring insurers to cover birth control (a BIG issue for women)….believes pharmacists should be able to refuse to fill doctor-prescribed prescriptions for reproductive conditions (a BIG Issue for women)

    ===women will NOT vote for Rossi

  15. 18

    blue john spews:

    Gregoire’s Spending Increase===Tax Increases==The state is doing better than most of the other states.

    it’s just as believable.

  16. 19

    Daddy Love spews:

    15 Cyn

    Also “Tax Increases” DOES NOT EQUAL “Loss of more jobs”

    If the 1990s and the 2000s have taught us anything, it should be that. That little bit of conservative dogma has been debunked as thoroughly as “tax cuts pay for themselves in increased revenu.”

    Roger Rabbit spews: @4 Almost a third of the $8 billion went for plugging the $2.2 billion deficit that Rossi left her.

    Please tell us Pelletizer when Rossi was the WA Guvnur?

    Ohhhh… wait a minute… It was Gary Locke (D for Donkey).

    The Prosecution Rests!

    Marvin: Keep up the great work. Pelletizer is easily forced to tell lies.

  18. 22

    Steve spews:

    @5 It’s a close call between Marvin and Cynical.

    Marvin is a studio musician who doesn’t know what a 1-4-5 chord progression is, doesn’t know the pentatonic blues scale, and doesn’t know the differences between recording engineer, mixing engineer and mastering engineer.

    Cynical is a Montana rancher who lunches in Lacey and finds time to post on all day on a western Washington political blog. Ranching is such easy work, you know. He’s an investor and daytrader who can’t explain what a Stop Loss is, and who’s trading philosophy can be summed up as, “catch a falling knife”.

    But one shouldn’t leave out the self-loathing Puddy. Of course, with his being a goatfucker, the self-loathing is well deserved. But consider his ability to master a dozen sockpuppets. That each of his twelve hate-filled personas is dumber than a stump as well as being goatfuckers should be enough to give Pudz the nod as “most stupid rightwingnut dickhead on this blog”.

  19. 23

    blue john spews:

    Does dino rossi, if elected, have the power to ban abortions?

    If the conservatives overturn Roe vs Wade, then yes, rossi could have the power to ban abortions in WA.

  20. 24

    Lipsticked Pig fucker spews:


    Poor Marvin!

    Mr. Cynical is a rancher, eh? That explains his familiarity with receiving government subsidies and his Republican hypocrisy and his deep personal knowledge of goat fucking.

    Poor PuddyPud!

    Puddybud spews:

    Ohhhhhh lookie here @ idiot savant @22, the purveyor of the up and cumming moron ale Steve’s Stupid Solution.

    HA lefties I hear through good sources Steve needs more distributors.

  22. 27

    Puddybud spews:

    Steve, not only the Biggest ASSHole on HA but the sole proprietor of Steve’s Stupid Solution, if you could debate this would be interesting.

    You are a 50+ year old man with a 5th grade mentality. You need assistance…

    22. Steve spews:

    You got a vivid imagination there old man.
    Stick with the goat sex stuff, it’s your area of expertise. You know more about goat sex than any republican I know.

  24. 30

    Marvin Stamn spews:

    24. Lipsticked Pig fucker spews:
    Poor Marvin!

    Poor because the democrats in california and los angeles tax the hell out of those that make money.
    That’s the first only smart thing you’ve ever said.

    Pathetically sad.

    Marvin: Keep up the great work. Pelletizer is easily forced to tell lies.

    I would like to take the credit but I believe it’s just the rabbit getting old and losing brain cells, losing one too many of his “lucky” rabbits feet.
    That or being a government employee almost his whole life has taken it’s toll. Seeing how upper management live so high on the hog while the low level government flunkies struggle.

    Does dino rossi, if elected, have the power to ban abortions?
    If the conservatives overturn Roe vs Wade, then yes, rossi could have the power to ban abortions in WA.

    So the answer is no, dino being elected isn’t the end of pro-baby killing.
    So it is playing the fear card.
    How typical of liberals.

    Marvin Stamn spews:

    If you were you are coming unarmed.
    Tough to debate when your knowledge base begins and ends with goat sex.

    Steve spews:

    @29 and 31 Geez, I mention “goatfucking” and there you go, off the deep end again. A lot of good therapy did you. The abyss must be your friend by now.

  30. 36

    mark spews:

    Republicans will NEVER take away your right to
    abortion because we want you dumb ass liberals
    to kill your children. Net result is less liberals. We even like it when you kill yourselves. Keep up the good work. Think how
    your helping the planet by killing yourself!
    I like less traffic!

  31. 38

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    Wells Fargo DOWN 3 points….lost $6,000.
    Still up about $7,500 on this trade (bot around 26.66)
    If it drops below 29, I will probably pick up some more.

    Did buy 1,000 shares of NOV near the close @ 32.68 and 1,000 shares of Apple @ $89.00
    We’ll see what happens.
    Not feeling confident on these like the last 12 short-term moves. It just seems to me a lot of weak investors have sold in panic mode creating a short-term buying opportunity.
    Famous last words.

    Buy good company’s on extreme downturns…sell into rally’s you KLOWNS!

  32. 39

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    You know KLOWNS, if y’all spent as much time studying & investing/gambling, you’d be Republicans determined to stop O-blah-blah from doubling the LT Capital Gains Tax!

    Now you’ve forced me to gamble and make ST Plays to take advantage o the O-blah-blah fear factor.

    Some of us thankful O-blah-blah is ahead now…creates more panic in the market and more opportunity for ST profits!!

  33. 40

    Puddybud spews:

    Mark 7,184,121 abortions since the start of the Iraq war.

    Since libtards love abortion, you’d think they’d want to keep it going.

    Lets stop and think a minute.

    Over 4000 US soldiers died to protect the right of 7,184,121 abortions since the start of the Iraq war. Since on average 65% of them are Donkey, that’s a lot of Donkoinfanticide! Yes!

    GBS spews:

    Mr. Cynical,

    Post your trade confirmation slips. Everyone gets one on EVERY trade place, bough or sold.

    You’ve made way more than enough references on this blog.

    I’m calling our bluff. Let’s see whatcha got!!

    Just posted on Seattle Times!
    Gregoire with 1% across the Board Cut scheme–
    Read this article and tell me if you can explain the math??


    It is all smoke-and-mirrors!!!!!!!!!
    There is no way 1% cut exempting huge cost areas like education will reduce the Budget Deficit by the amount Gregoire claims.

    Fuzzy Math!!!

    Huge questions?
    Why didn’t Gregoire do this 6 months or 1 year ago??
    Who is auditing these numbers and what “teeth” are in this soft “for-show” desperate smoke-and-mirrors game??

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    Just a reminder–
    I could give a darn what you think!”
    Same with Steve.

    No one would ever post or send confirmation slips.

    Frankly, I believe you are envious.
    In fact I know you are…sadly.
    Atheists like you 2 are sadly mired in the muck of jealousy of those who have resources & take risks.

    Do you enjoy being envious GBS?
    Does it feed your soul-less body??

    I wish you the best on your investments.
    I post these transactions to encourage you KLOWNS to not wallow in despair & jealousy…but to participate in our great system. To see opportunity…not always doom & gloom. To see the proverbial “HALF-FULL GLASS!”

    GBS, your torment is you know I’m not BS’ing…and you are jealous so you attack with ludicrous requests of confirmation slips.
    What about the JRCC trades and others?

    Look at the times & dates of the posts.
    If you don’t believe, fine.
    I’ll keep posting.
    You keep disbelieving.
    You sit on the sidelines—
    growing more envious due to missed opportunities. Your choice.

  44. 52

    GBS spews:

    Ahhhhhh, Puddybud, going for the desperation tactics I see.

    Too bad. You’re more intellectually capable than that. Just not morally honest enough with yourself to look back at the results over the last 28 years since Reagan came to office. You’re either unwilling or unable to divorce yourself from your core belief system even though verdict is in that Reagan’s ideology of deregulated markets, little to no government oversight, and “Trickle Down” economics has brought Lady Liberty to her knees.

    Why can’t you Reagan Republicans debate the issues any more??

    You know why. I know why. The American public knows why. It’s time to stop the charades. If your mantra is “Country First” then live it. Is it a slogan or a belief? You cannot deny it any longer. Reagan Republicanism does NOT work.

    Or, is it really about “Campaign First”?

    Patriot or loyalist?

    A true American patriot knows the difference and chooses Country First by no longer supporting Reagan Republican ideology and/or candidates.

    It’s like Abe Lincoln said; “You can fool all the people some of the time (Ronald Reagan was good at this.), and some of the people all the time (Reagan Republicans), but you cannot fool all the people all the time (The American public).

    Geez, I mention “goatfucking” and the trolls lose their minds. Is that somehow revealing? You betcha!

    GBS spews:

    Puddybud, Mr. Cynical.

    IF you two have ever even seen a trade confirmation slip you’d know that you can cover all the personal information, order confirmation numbers etc, so it cannot be traced.

    I just want to go back and pick a few of the MONSTER trades Mr. Cynical has bragged about and see if he/you can produce ONE round trip slip.

    The truth is, he can’t.

    Oh, and Mr. Cynical, I’m not an envious person. I’m not the one obsessed with touting my riches.

    Look back and carefully read your reply at 50. Is that the tone of a good Christian?

    Is that what you’ve learned in your house of worship?

    Is that the teaching of Jesus Christ?

    If answer “yes” to the questions above than you have no concept of what it means to be a Good Christian.

    If you answered “no” to any of the questions above, then I forgive your trespass.

    Go in peace, go in God’s grace.

    And, as a closing note, for someone who is supposedly not bitter, why do you go by Mr. Cynical?

    I’m traveling all day tomorrow so won’t be selling tomorrow.
    Will be looking things over on NOV & Apple on Thursday–Friday….I hate holding ST plays over the weekend in a volatile market.

    Sad you are an Atheist.
    You are a bright guy who seems to worship your on self-knowledge….like most Atheists.
    YOU are the Alpha & the Omega.
    That means when you die, that’s all there is for you. Kid of a hopeless existence, ain’t it??
    Great thing is God gives us Free Choice to choose our path.

    The key common denominator for TEAM HORSESASS seems to be Atheism…with the exception of proud leftist. Not one other true believer (Rog Rabbit is obviously pretending) in the whole rag-tag bunch of you.
    It’s hard to understand how proud leftist can stand being in the same court with a bunch of Atheists who are angry and self-worshipping.
    p.l.—it takes a strong stomach, doesn’t it?

    Steve spews:

    The deluded Mr. Cynical just makes shit up. There are no trades. He obviously has no money, no ranch, no faith, no life. All he has is a extremely fragile reality construct. The call by GBS for him to post his trade confirmations threatens that construct. He’s hanging on for dear life.
