As previously mentioned, I'm trying to preserve my sanity by paying as little attention as possible to the national-level ratshit ... trying to get some work done instead. Close attention would quite simply lead to rebellion. (Glenn Beck seems to be capturing the mood of a considerable section of the country!)
Keeping up with a few local matters:
1. Spokane has a lively but meaningless campaign for Mayor. The candidates are Councilwoman Mary Vernor, who is an outright Communist and loyal acolyte of Antichrist Maurice Strong; and incumbent Mayor Dennis Hession, who is a rather dull semi-commie. For a remarkably accurate picture of these critters, imagine two South Park characters: the green-haired lady mayor and Mr. Markey, mkay.
They ran a radio debate
last night, full of sound and fury but very little actual disagreement on actual subjects. At the end, the moderator summed up the whole thing with one final question: "Do you like each other?" After twenty seconds of pregnant silence, Hession said "I like her son." And Comrade Vernor replied "Well, we agree on that. I like my son too."
2. The Tacoma foundry explosion. Apparently started by a misconnection between a propane-delivery truck and tanks at the site. The driver (who died of burns) was apparently not at fault; it appears that some work was done on the connection beforehand, and the authorities don't seem especially interested in checking any further, which leads me to wonder if some members of a "protected class", such as enemy agents, are involved. The driver's family has hired their own investigator,
presumably to insure that the Feds don't play their usual trick of placing all the blame on a conveniently deceased innocent party. Maybe the investigator will find truth.
