Radio Free Goldy…

… but not Goldy free radio. I’ll be on the Kirby Wilbur Show again this morning, shortly after 8am, bringing a rare smattering of truth (well… at least, perspective) to KVI-570.

On previous appearances, Kirby and I have enjoyed a really respectful, friendly banter on the subject of Dino Rossi’s futile election contest. So perhaps I’ll spice things up by throwing in a few words about the gas tax.

UPDATE:
Well… late to bed, early to rise, makes a man groggy. But once I knocked the cobwebs out, I thought today’s exchange was a bit more entertaining. We actually got to respectfully disagree a few times.

For those who missed it (I’m assuming that’s most of you,) I suggested to Kirby that if his No New Gas Tax initiative qualifies for the ballot, he and John Carlson should follow Dave Ross’s lead, and take a leave of absence through the election. I graciously offered to fill in for him during that time.

UPDATE, UPDATE:
Missed the show? Listen to an MP3 audio clip.

Listening to it, I realized I missed a couple points. First, I didn’t hear Kirby respond to my offer to sub for him by saying he wanted a show to come back to. Missed a chance to give him a dig back in return.

Second, I failed to explain the biggest reason why talk of rail is a red herring when discussing Kirby and John’s initiative. The initiative will only rescind the gas tax portion of the transportation bill… about $5.5 billion. But the rail projects are funded by vehicle weight fees, which would not be rescinded. The state Constitution requires gas taxes to go only to roads, bridges and ferries… so it couldn’t possibly be spent on rail.

    Nice spot! You threw Kirby for a loop by criticizing his anti-gas tax initiative, but the ensuing banter was fun. It sounded like you had him half convinced in the end.

    chardonnay spews:

    Kirby complimented you again and called horsesass.org the leading democratic blog in WA. Then you call for him and John to step down from their mics because they support an initiative. Then when you offered to step in for one of them Kirby got you good by saying he wants a show to come back to. Which brings up another issue, err amerika ratings. Aren’t you taking good ratings away from AAR by listening to and advertising for KVI?
    Goldy, you just proved that Republicans are ever so generous and liberals arrogantly take advantage.

    Hey guys, this is off-topic, but it’s actually something that I think everyone on this board can agree on. We need to do something about the amount car-related crime in the Seattle area. Theher’s car was destroyed by a car thief who tried unsuccessfully to hot wire it, and just in the past few weeks, I know of 3 other people who’ve either had cars stolen or broken into. The Renton Police Department took 24 hours to respond when theher called to report this, and I’m not sure they plan to do anything about it.

    I’ve posted up at my blog a description of a person (and their car) who appears to be a suspect according to two of her co-workers. Please pass along to anyone you know that lives/works in Renton.

    Thanks.

    Wouldn’t Kirby (and Carlson) talking about their initiative be considered an air time donation and therefore KVI would be required to give an equal amount of time (gratis) to initiative opponents?

    If so, Goldy, you could be an equal number of minutes to them…would be perfect (and free!).

    9, Sit in with a 911 operator (I have), you would be surprised how few officers are actually patrolling their area at any given time. Therefore, their calls are usually stacked on top of one another. Car prowls after-the-fact are a pretty low priority in of itself too. Seattle is hiring an additional 100 officers and that will help a little but that’s not much consolation to you.

    It only counts once it becomes an initiative on the ballot…but something to be assured of is that John and Kirby will go out of their way to have anit initiative supporters to debate the issue. That is the thing about those guys, they will give you libs a fair shot at airtime. You might want to get Chrissy to go on the air with Carlson and see if she cant muster a little statewide support for this runaway train (possibly a little support for herself as well) I am sure that Carlson would let her on….

    Patrick spews:

    I have just two comments on the initiative to repeal the gas tax.

    1. Sure, I understand taxes are unpopular, and I don’t like the idea of paying 9 1/2 cents more a gallon either. But it’s been a long time since we’ve had a gas tax increase, and is it better to live with ever-worsening traffic congestion or the viaduct collapsing on people? Also, today’s vehicles get better mileage than 20 years ago, so you will not be paying more taxes than you did then for the same number of miles.

    2. I read somewhere that Eastern Washington gets back $7 of road construction and maintenance for every $1 of gas tax they pay. Yet, our brethren in the “conservative” part of the state are the first to complain about any tax increase, and you can bet this initiative will be enthusiastically voted for by that part of the state. If it passes, I believe the existing gas tax revenues should be reprioritized, i.e., gas taxes paid in Western Washington should stay in Western Washington. In other words, if getting back $1 for every 14 cents of gas tax they pay isn’t good enough for them, let ‘em drive on dirt roads!

    As a matter of fact, for all the complaining about government and taxes that comes from Eastern Washington, if you travel in that part of the state, the first thing you notice is how much of what is over there is supported by government and taxes. Farmers not only get crop subsidies and government-backed loans, but also benefit from enormously expensive taxpayer-financed projects that provide water and electricity to run irrigation pumps far below cost. In addition, a very high percentage of the good-paying jobs in Eastern Washington are government jobs or supported by taxes. Eastern Washington wouldn’t have much of an economy without the government money that pours into that part of the state. Which leads me to this thought: If they hate government spending so much, why not take away the government money and let them support themselves?

  24. 38

    Patrick spews:

    Also, why do the people who complain about a 9 1/2 cent gas tax say nothing about the Bush administration letting oil companies gouge the public for 80 cents a gallon? Isn’t that what Cheney’s secret energy task force was really about? Why are the gas tax haters so quiet about oil monopoly profits?

    The best bit of that is where ya take a link that works to examples of a word you claimed didn’t exist, and then dismissed them by saying they were broken links! Thats pure, insane genius!

    Claim: Talk show host Rush Limbaugh’s 3 November 1988 broadcast included a statement approving the selling of chemical warfare agents to Saddam Hussein and the gassing of drug addicts.

    Status: False.

    -snip

    Whatever opinions Mr. Limbaugh may have expressed on his radio program over the years regarding arms sales to Saddam Hussein and the social issue of drug addiction, the item cited at the head of this page is not a genuine transcript of something broadcast on his show on 3 November 1988. It’s actually a lampooning taken from the comic strip The Boondocks.
