Hey, Washington Governor Inslee! Shut down the State for the entire month of April?

How, pray tell, do you expect the government of Washington to operate with no tax receipts?  In case you hadn't noticed, the State runs on Sales Taxes and the B & O tax on all businesses, large and small, regardless of profits.  No receipts, no revenue. What happens when the revenue stops?  How many government …

This Used to be My City..Welcome to 21st Century Seattle

I have lived in Everett, 20 miles north of Seattle, for eighteen years.  Each passing year makes me happier that I moved out of Seattle.  There are constantly stories in the local media demonstrating how the cost of living in Seattle has increased so much it is pricing residents out.  People who live in Seattle …

Thoughts on the Midterm Election…and After

Most of the votes are counted.  Winners and losers have been declared.  All day yesterday, and most of today, I've been projecting into the future, what yesterday's election results mean.    Many Democrats went down to defeat yesterday, as did the majority of libertarians running as such (Michael Medved likes to call them "losertarians").  Stalwart …

The Internal Revenue Service is Now a Political Organization

And you had better watch out!  Since the OTL Administration took power in 2009, they have used their admittedly left-leaning minions inside the agency (whose sole purpose is supposed to be managing and collecting taxes paid by individuals, business, and organizations and remitted to the US Treasury) to go after their political opponents.  Right now, …

What would YOU cut?

Since the wimps in Congress refuse to see the writing on the wall and stop massive government spending that cannot be sustained, place yourself in the driver's seat. What would you cut, in toto, right now, from the Federal Government budget? I would start with the Department of Education. Every last employee would be fired …
