A Rare (hah!) Political Post

Hey, Americans! Vote today, please!

Oh, and for you folks in Washington state, usually I write something like “It doesn’t matter who you support, as long as you stay informed and take part,” but for this year, fuck that. I really want WA residents to check “Approve” on Ref. 71 to affirm domestic partnership rights for gay couples.

One day our grandkids will shake their heads in dismay that we had to actually vote on whether we’d approve human rights for all our citizens. Help us move more quickly into the fair, decent, honorable future we know is coming. Approve 71 and get your ballot in the mail before deadline.

And while we’re at it, let’s send Tim Eyman’s Initiative 1033 down to defeat, too. I’m more than happy to have California residents move up here; I’m less sanguine about importing their political gridlock and debt-crippled state government.

If everyone thought it was basic, minimal stuff, there would indeed be no need to thank you. *)

Well, I'm sorry to say that I can't argue with that.

    Oh yeah. Like the lawyers who get obvious really venal criminals off because it makes their success rate look good. But those are not the ones I am referring to in meaning well. These guys are mixed…

    This reminds me of the time my wife was injured and the insurance guy handling her case did everything possible to deny and stall the payment. We had to put her surgery on a credit card because this…

    The creepiest part is that some of them are actually well meaning.

    Yeah. It's godawful what people will do when they have authority and no fear about using it.
