Morning headlines

Folks down in Lewis County were already struggling to cope with the aftermath of last week’s devastating floods, when President Bush added insult to injury yesterday by signing an emergency declaration making renters, homeowners and businesses eligible for up to $28,800 in cash grants… this in a county whose residents reliably approve anti-tax/anti-government ballot measures by 20-plus-percent margins. Can’t we just git gov’ment off our backs?

God knows the flood victims could use the help, if only to find temporary shelter and give them the breathing space they need to get their lives back on track, but it’s hard to imagine folks who just voted 63.2% in favor of I-960’s government crippling provisions looking kindly on any sort of government handout. After all, these are the kind of upstanding citizens who voted 61.4% in favor of I-912’s fuel tax repeal, 68.7% and 72.9% respectively in favor of I-776 and I-695’s $30 car tab provisions, 73.6% in favor of I-747’s one-percent cap on growth in regular local levies, and a whopping 79.1% against R-51’s transportation improvement package… so it seems unlikely that they would ever accept the food stamps and emergency unemployment compensation the disaster declaration makes available. I mean, this is a county that voted 60.5% in favor of I-933 at the same time the “takings” initiative went down to defeat by a healthy 17-point margin statewide, so one would think that voters so adamantly opposed to government regulations that might, say, prevent a land owner from building a Walmart in a flood plain, would also be adamantly willing to take full personal responsibility for the inevitable consequences of doing so. I’m just sayin’.

(Whenever I hear righties bitch about gov’ment it reminds me of that old Catskill’s joke about the woman, who after complaining about the terrible food at a resort, adds “and such small portions.”)

The rest of the headlines are filled with equally horrid tales of government intrusion. A burning ban is now in effect for King, Pierce and Snohomish counties, and on Hanukkah, no less; advocates want to take away our constitutional right to discriminate against gay people; and in perhaps the ultimate indignancy, the EPA is nosing around in our bathrooms, urging us to switch to a new generation of 1.3 gallons per flush toilets:

All of the WaterSense toilets flush at least 250 grams, or about 10 ounces of matter. In the industry, that’s considered the average weight of adult human solid waste.

Yeah… well… I eat a lot of fiber, so I’m not so sure. Besides, the one thing I’m not flush with right now is money, so unless the EPA or SPU wants to give me the same free toilet they’ve been giving apartment complexes and businesses, I’m sticking with the old guzzler that came with my house.

Damn gov’ment.

    If you paid attention to the whack-job lefties, they told people not to burn all of their menorah candles too long.

    http://www.jpost.com/servlet/S.....e/ShowFull

    ” In a campaign that has spread like wildfire across the Internet, a group of Israeli environmentalists is encouraging Jews around the world to light at least one less candle this Hanukka to help the environment.
    The founders of the Green Hanukkia campaign found that every candle that burns completely produces 15 grams of carbon dioxide. If an estimated one million Israeli households light for eight days, they said, it would do significant damage to the atmosphere.”

    I suggest using biodiesel or veggie oil. To make it CO2 was absorbed so it’s carbon “neutral”!

    Do liberals Flush More?

    This seems to be a quantifiable issue.

    Certainly conservatives are wealthier so they are more likely to own new toilets. That might mean they flush less.

    Also, liberals read more and do so on the toilet. Reading more means more frequent flushes, again .. advantage is to the conservatives.

    Conservatives buy name brand soft and soluble t-paper, easy to flush. Liberasl buy recycled new print, hard to flush that stuff.

    liberals eat lotsa vegetarian, ethnic food. This smells bad! Flush more.

    Seems likley that Liberals are the bad guys when it comes to flushed.

    ‘I Heard It Through The Grapevine’, by Norman Whitfield & Barrett Strong

    “Say, believe half of what you see.
    Oh, ho, and none of what you hear….”

    If you want to know what is in my mind, ask me, don’t tell me. PudWax(tm) is a sterotype in that he resembles Clarence Thomas and Armstrong Williams in their self-hating and perverse championing of a philosophy that puts them on the back of the bus, metaphorically speaking. In televised interviews, both of these men appear to be pschologically disturbed.

    How can a self respecting black person join a political party (Republican) that wins elections by using coded racism in what they euphemistically call their ‘Southern Strategy’?

    As far as my ‘wanting’ to be a guitar player, I would say that I am the best guitar player sitting in this chair. I would like to be a BETTER guitar player. As far as the song I quoted above (‘I Heard It Through The Grapevine’), I’ve seen both GLADYS KNIGHT AND THE PIPS and JOHN FOGERTY do the song live. My version is closer to Fogerty’s.

    I notice that Goldy’s original post spent most of the time showing the bankruptcy of the neo-conservative’s anti-tax rants, with a short aside at the end about the low-flush toilets.

    But the response posts from the wingnuts (up to this point) instead spend more time focusing on the toilet issue, with some irrelevent and completely unfounded accusations about liberals not giving to charity.

    So, it appears to me that the wingnuts posting here have their heads in the toilet so far they couldn’t recognize real charitable giving when they saw it.

    [Before the accusations begin: I give 10% (tithes) to my church, another 5% to my church for various specific offerings I deem meritable, and another 5% (on average)in general giving to other charities. This doesn’t count helping out individuals from time-to-time. So stick your “liberal’s don’t give to charity” drivel in your ear.

    The Demise of Democracy
    The following was written by Professor Alexander Fraser Tytler shortly before our original 13 colonies gained their independence from Great Britain.

    He was speaking of the Athenian Republic some 2000 years before.

    “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse (generous benefits) from the public treasury.”

    “From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising them the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.”

    Talk about hypocrisy…the last ones in the world who should criticize the inhabitants of Lewis Country are the people on the Left.

    Most leftists are parasites of the greater society…surviving only because others…like those in Lewis county, in general WILL usually refrain from voting upon themselves the largesse the Left thinks is their due.

    Perhap Tytler is indeed right, and the people of Lewis County will gradually take on more of the characteristics of the Left, and the US economy will come tumbling down just as happened in the USSR when eventually the leeches won, and the economy could no longer sustain itself.

    I’m not happy about how Lewis County often votes, but I’m sending money their way anyway. I’ll grant that their county leadership dropped the ball on this one, and I’ll grant that it’s most likely because they didn’t see how they could get the locals to buy into infrastructure:

    And I’ll grant that bad to nonexistent development planning made things worse:

    http://archives.seattletimes.n.....wis+county

    But we’re supposed to be the good guys, period.

    So let the Puddybuds of the world continue to act like twelve year olds with an anal fixation. I’m acting like an adult, because that’s how I’m supposed to act when disaster strikes.

    (And I was raised by a Republican father, so charity and compassion ain’t no political thing.)

    The Salvation Army:

    Having talked to actual homeless people and helped to feed them (unlike most republicans) – many of them prefer to get food and shelter without being preached at. Give to the downtown emergency center instead of the Salvation Army – people who are down and out (and most of them are addicted to drugs or mentally ill) don’t need lectures on how to believe in god the right way (ie – the way the people with the food believe) before they are fed.

    If someone wants to feed the hungry because of religous conviction – I am all in favor of that. But to try and convert them to a particular religous brand before you give them the food – that is manipulation.

    the real reason ther is so much flooding (100-year floods every other year):

    Look at the two major factors cited by Goldy:

    1. Clearcutting the forest and steep inclines so they don’t hold water. This reduces the salmon return vy setroying spawning grounds and habitat. It also leads to increased runoff downstream

    2. Cementing over the flood plain – so more water collects downstream and it can’t seep in and therefore runs off more.

    All of the pro-growth, anti-environmental crowd need to think about the “costs” (read millions of dollars in damage) due to unrestricted private ownership. We have to pay for their stupidity and greed and I resent it.
