I’ve been busy this week helping out the Sensible Washington folks with their signature gathering efforts. They now have their donation page set up, so please visit and throw a few pennies their way. This is a huge statewide volunteer signature gathering effort and they could use all the help they can get.

- The arrest and prosecution of Olympia Mayor Pro-Tem Joe Hyer for somewhat petty marijuana charges has given rise to a number of questions. There are tens of thousands of transactions like the one that Hyer was busted for happening in the state of Washington every month. Why was he specifically targeted despite clearly not being a large-scale dealer? Who was the confidential informant that Thurston County Narcotics Task Force used to bust Hyer? The Cannabis Defense Coalition is now trying to find these things out – and to highlight the fact that this arrest was likely politically motivated.

- In addition to being a high ranking political official who has both enemies and a pot plant, there’s one other thing that makes you far more likely to be busted for marijuana in this state: being black.

- I recently posted on the rogue DEA agent in Colorado, Jeff Sweetin, who openly violated the Obama Administration’s policy towards medical marijuana. Colorado Congressman Jared Polis is now fighting back. Last Thursday, President Obama was met by protests in Denver.

- Amanda Knox is not the only American being fucked over by the Italian legal system.

- As bad as the Italian legal system is, Utah might be worse.

The French Justice System is not much better. They take 10 years to bring a case to trial over the Concorde Crash, and try to shift the blame to a US Company, although the tires were Goodyear(an American corporation), they felt the damage was done by a piece of metal that allegedly fell off of a Continental Airlines flight that took off just before the Concorde. They even have those who designed and tested the Concorde charged. The Continental faces just fines, individuals charged face a few years for manslaughter if convicted, and remember, the French System is Guilty until Proven Innocent.

Chile has been hit by a powerful 8.8-magnitude earthquake that collapsed buildings in the capital city of Santiago 200 miles away and triggered Pacific Ocean tsunami warnings.

Today’s Chilean quake was far more powerful than the 7.0-magnitude quake that devastated Haiti. It was in the same area as history’s most powerful recorded earthquake, a 9.5-magnitude monster on May 22, 1960 that killed people as far away as Japan.

Hey Lee..Here’s an idea–
Why don’t you, the Cannibis Defense Coalition and Goldy’s Northwest Division of Lunatic Moonbats go to the Thurston County Courthouse and light up for a Free Hyer Tokefest??
That ought to draw attention.
Go right to the Judge’s Chambers….or better yet, the Jail to help save Transportation costs.

Naaah..just bellyache and protect a guy who took an oath of office which he clearly violated.

Roger Rabbit since BlueJohn has issues with we who thing right calling “progressives” names like Dumb Bunny…

Paul Ryan, architect of the DUMMOCRAPTICALLY ignored “Roadmap for America’s Future Act of 2008” – Puddy placed it here for all Moonbat!s to read… said this on Friday,

“This year, doctors in Medicare are going to get cut 21 percent in their fees. Everyone is trying to fix that. That’s $371 billion. What did the Democrats do? They took it out of this legislation and are moving it as a separate piece of legislation. So they have hidden $371 billion of spending right there.”

Puddy was wrong… Puddy remembered $250,000,000,000… Nope it’s now $371,000,000,000 in a separate bill, hiding the true facts. Of course this is not in the Kaiser Poll you threw up or the CNN Poll thrown up by Daddy Love. Why the need for smoke and mirrors if this bill is so great and wonderful?

Why is OdumbaCare asking the CBO to score 10 years of tax increases and Medicare cuts to pay for six years of spending?

So under reconciliation as you threw up as a worthless attack Dumb Bunny(reconciliation is used ONLY on FEDERAL FISCAL BUDGET ITEMS), how will the House accept the Sanate bill?

With the $500 Billion in Medicare cuts it is estimated that 64% of seniors will be dumped from Medicare Advantage. Where was that in any poll from Daddy Love or the Dumb Bunny?

Where is OdumbaCare’s coverage of the $30 Trillion Medicare Unfunded Liability Dumb Bunny?

Listen to facts Dumb Bunny… Of course the arschloch will ridicule the source… Listen to the ideas rejected because they are NIH from DUMMOCRAPTS.

God, Puddy, and Roger Rabbit

Since the Supremes’ court had decided that corporations are persons, perhaps they could also recognize that God is a person?

I suggest that the Haitians and Chileans bring a suit against God for His malice. Pat Robertson should testify!

When Chile and Haiti win, the World Court and garnish all contributions to religious organizations that claim God is and that God is good. This will leave Hindus, Buddhists, and Jews out but will effectively tax Europeans, Americans, and the Vatican!

God works in mysterious ways!

19. Roger Rabbit spews:

I just want to remind everyone that Mr. Cynical is a liar. A couple days ago, he tried to smear state employees by claiming a liquor store clerk made over $100,000 of “total compensation” in 2009. In fact, this was the combined incomes of two employees with the same name, neither of whom earns more than $35,000 a year. In addition, their “total compensation” was inflated by double-counting leave pay (and Lord knows what else).

25. Roger Rabbit spews:

@13 You say a lot of silly things, none of them true. For example, earlier this week you said a state liquor state clerk made $100,000 last year. That was complete bullshit. You combined the compensation of two employees with the same name, neither of whom makes over $35,000 a year. When you make rookie mistakes like that, why should anyone believe anything else you allege? You’re an idiot.

@26 If reconciliation is good enough for Republicans, it’s good enough for Democrats too.

“Since 1980, 17 of 23 reconciliation bills have been signed into law by Republican presidents …. During the administration of President George W. Bush, Congress used reconciliation to enact three major tax cuts, each of which substantially increased the deficit.”

@28 Tell the “website folks” to check the OFM data again, Klown. Tell them there are TWO Thomas D. Taylors working for the liquor agency.

Now let’s run a little experiment. Pull up BIAW’s iteration of the “OFM data” and run all the liquor clerks. You get ONE Thomas D. Taylor. Now run all the warehouse operators. You get no Thomas D. Taylors. Then go to the OFM data and run all Liquor Control Board employees, and county how many Thomas D. Taylors there are.

Idiot.

36. Roger Rabbit spews:

I shouldn’t have to do this, but to juveniles like Cynical, you have to spell things out:

TAYLOR, THOMAS D LIQ STORE CLERK 1H 0 100 15.3
TAYLOR, THOMAS D WAREHOUSE OPER 2 1M 0 100 2855

http://lbloom.net/lcb09.html

This is from OFM’s official website, not BIAW’s fucked-up compilation.

37. Roger Rabbit spews:

The “15.3″ is clerk Thomas’ hourly wage (“1H” means he’s an hourly employee), i.e. $15.30/hr.

The $2855) is warehouse operator Thomas’ monthly salary (“1M” means he’s a salaried or “monthly” employee), i.e. $2,855/mo.

I’m sure either of these gentlemen would be very surprised to learn he made over $100,000 last year, as alleged by Idiot Goatfucker.

41. Puddybud is Sad my friend died spews:

ATJ,

Where’s the rake? Looks like ‘side your face!

COBRA allowed one to keep their health care plan… There was no guvmint assistance given for your current health care plan as you left one job or was laid off. If you left or got laid off the guvmint didn’t pay for your health care; you did out of pocket. You had to find the cash if laid off or make it work with your new employer.

And adding CHIP without fully funding it is the reason the US has a multiple $30+ Trillion unfunded Medicare Liabilities.

A really convoluted argument from the lefties at NPR. Too bad the simpleton minds such as yours ATJ have issues with facts. So, as always, your rake met your face. AGAIN! Hope it felt good!
