“The most insidious part of the Earth Day movement is how it has fully infiltrated our schools. They are successfully scaring the pants off our kids.
So much so that a new Opinion Research poll of America’s preteens shows that one in three children fears an Earth apocalypse. An astonishing 75 percent of black children and 65 percent of Hispanic children believe the planet will be irrevocably changed by the time they’re adults.
What does that tell you? There are larger concentrations of minorities in the cities. There’s also a larger concentration of liberals pushing this apocalyptic garbage in the cities.
They are brainwashing our kids into losing sleep over a myth. Almost 60 percent of metropolitan area kids as a whole feel we’re doomed while 47 percent of suburban kids have such fears.”
I found this column by Phil Valentine pretty interesting. I wish more people [like those clowns in Congress] would accept the fact that arctic ice is actually increasing.

Yay! A terrible downer of a speech that told us how awful life in America is. An incomprehensible poem of pure drivel. A blatantly racist benediction. And the MSM going on and on about what a great day it was. It’s going to be a long four years…

From the Washington Votes.org e-mail update:
“Introduced by Sen. Ken Jacobsen, (D-Seattle) (D) on January 15, 2009, to require the general administration to seek out ergonomic seating for state employees when they travel. This would require airlines to supply ergonomic seating.”
Glad to see there’s someone in Olympia tackling the really…UNIMPORTANT ISSUES!
“Introduced by Sen. Paull Shin, (D-Edmonds) (D) on January 15, 2009, to require health care and insurance providers to provide language access services to persons with limited English. This bill also directs the insurance commissioner to study the obstacles that are present for persons with limited English in purchasing health insurance.”
How do all you unlimited English persons feel about your health care and insurance costs going even higher on behalf of those limited English persons? After all, that would be a lot easier that limited English persons actually learning English!
“Introduced by Sen. Jeanne Kohl-Welles, (D-Seattle) (D) on January 15, 2009, to allow the retail sale of beer and wine at the legislative gift center for off-site consumption.”
I can see how they might need beer and wine flowing freely in Olympia to help them make sense of all the silly laws they’re proposing. Then again, it is entirely possible that most of these laws are being written while the legislators are under the influence of adult beverages. That should probably stop!
“Introduced by Rep. Al O’Brien, (D-Mountlake Terrace) (D) on January 16, 2009, to create a local government crime-free rental housing program. The purpose of the program is to allow local governments to designate areas of rental housing as crime-free. This act provides direction to the local governments for the implementation of the crime-free rental program including, landlord participation, education courses and other necessary programs.”
Let me get this straight…a “local government crime-free rental housing program.” So if we just designate areas of rental house as “crime-free,” they will just magically be…”crime-free!” How about this? Instead of wasting money making another stupid, pointless program, how about we give the funding to law enforcement instead? That way, instead of having little pockets of supposedly “crime-free” rental housing, law enforcement officers can strive to make entire jurisdictions a little more “crime-free?”
Oh, you Democrats just make this too easy. On a more positive note, I intend to sift back through the updates I’ve received to find some examples of outstanding, necessary legislation that’s been proposed thusfar in Olympia. Believe it or not, there are some of those, too!

“Although Oprah Winfrey worked hard on Barack Obama’s presidential election campaign, she never considered going to work for the president-elect’s administration, the talk show host said Friday.”
She’s much more valuable to Obama as celebrity mouthpiece.
“Earlier this week, Winfrey’s production company confirmed she would host her Chicago-based talk show to Washington for at least two episodes during inauguration week. She’ll have a live show from the Kennedy Center Opera House one day before the ceremony, and tape another one on Jan. 21.”
The question is, will her viewers be smart enough to interpret her biases? Ironic that her show would not be subject to the Fairness Doctrine but Conservative talk radio would be silenced.

“With Washington facing an expected deficit of more than $5 billion in the upcoming two-year budget cycle, environmental groups say they’re heading into the 2009 legislative session with a wish list that adds jobs and revenue.
‘This is not the year to be walking with your hands out,’said Clifford Traisman, lobbyist for the Washington Environmental Council and Washington Conservation Voters. ‘We believe our priorities go hand in hand with generating a stronger economy.’
As in earlier sessions, the groups have several key priorities, mainly focusing on cutting the effects of global warming. They want more energy-efficient buildings, to auction rather than give away pollution credits that allow industries to emit greenhouse gases and to have polluters pay fees to help clean up Puget Sound and other waters.”
Translation: “We want businesses to pay more for their buildings, pay for “pollution credits” so they may continue to do business and possibly even pay pollution fees.”
Mr. Traisman, how will making Washington even more inhospitable to business generate a stronger economy? Certainly the environmental agenda will require more bureaucrats to administrate the green-ness of buildings, the distribution of pollution credits and collect all the fines from the evil polluters. The last thing Washington State needs is more unelected government drones whose jobs are dependent upon money confiscated from citizens and businesses. And, there is growing dissent among the scientific community about the validity of global warming. Sure it’s been accepted as gospel by environmental groups, the main stream media and Hollywood celebutards but it would be a serious mistake to further hinder Washington’s economy based on an un-proven theory.
Also, I read recently that 20% of Washington’s working population is employed in some capacity by government. [Searching madly for the source on this, no luck so far but 1 in 5 or 20% is the figure that I recall.] Having 20% of the workforce directly dependent upon tax dollars for their own salary is not a good thing. That doesn’t even factor in all of the tax money that those people can potentially spend in the course of their jobs.

“When Seattle artist Deborah Lawrence was asked to create an ornament for a holiday tree at the White House, nobody familiar with her work could have imagined she’d stick to snowmen, Santa Claus or Mount Rainier bathed in festive red, white and blue.
That Lawrence submitted an ornament with the words ‘Impeach Bush’ on its surface is also no surprise, except to the people responsible for picking her.
The 9-inch ball Lawrence created is covered with swirly red and white stripes and features a picture of Democratic Rep. Jim McDermott of Seattle, who signed a House resolution to consider the impeachment of President George W. Bush. Tiny glued-on text on the ornament hails the impeachment resolution.”
“Lawrence, 55, is pointedly political. She’s anti-Iraq war, anti-torture, pro-peace, pro-environment, pro-feminism, pro-diversity and pro-spreading-the-wealth. Those aren’t just her personal opinions; those are the issues that fuel the paintings she collages with printed messages.
‘Her work is all about social justice,’ said Catherine Person, who exhibits Lawrence’s work at Person Gallery in Seattle. ‘She’s the most political artist I know and the most political artist I represent by 100 miles. She’s a firebrand. Her last show in September was completely devoted to anti-Bush statements.’ McDermott, whose office was responsible for the selection of Lawrence, said the ornament’s content came as a surprise.”
It’s an honor to be chosen to to create an ornament to decorate the White House Christmas tree, regardless of political differences that you may have with the President. This woman deserves coal in her stocking. Neither she nor McDermott have any class.
