If you oppose charters, vote Chris Reykdal for OSPI, Jones seems uncommitted.
Aug 18 auntie jim commented on Pramila Jayapal Lands Congressman Adam Smith's Endorsement in the Race for the 7th.
I got to meet Pramila last Saturday at the Snohomish County Democrats quarterly meeting, Brady was also there and both gave nice speeches. (I have endorsed Brady Walkinshaw but can't vote for him since I now live in the second district. ) Senator Maralyn Chase gave a speech for Pramila Jayapal and Rep. June Robinson made a lively and convincing case for Brady. Even though the room seemed to have plenty of people, we didn't have a quorum so couldn't formally endorse them. We're lucky to have such good, progressive people.

Aug 5 auntie jim commented on At Least 10 People Say They’ve Been Drugged at Seattle Bars This Summer.
This is way more common than people think, and has been going on for years. Buy your alcohol by the bottle and drink it in the safety of your home. Even if you're not particularly young or pretty, watch your drink every second in a busy bar where strangers are present. If something tastes bitter or wrong, discard it and go home. It pays to be paranoid.
Aug 3 auntie jim commented on Walkinshaw Pulls Ahead of McDermott in Primary Election, but Ballots Are Still Being Counted.
I prefer Brady. Jayapal is an opportunist who doesn't even live in the district. On the issues there is little difference between any of them but Walkinshaw is married to a scientist, so we can expect reality based decisions.

Thank you for posting the Valuable information about I 873, news I can use!
I don't want to hear about Marissa Johnson, she's doing more harm than good, to put it politely.
Jun 24 auntie jim commented on British Scientists Wanted No Exit From the EU.
I'm opposed to EU austerity policy that beats up Greece, Spain, and Italy and I'm skeptical about predictions of big economic problems from the brexit. I predict that savvy investors will use the decline in equities markets as a buying opportunity and make money.
Jun 10 auntie jim commented on A Non-Political Hearing on the Human Rights Commission’s Transgender Rulemaking Yielded “Nastiest” Testimony Yet, Trans Advocate Says.
I'm gay and I was born in Yakima and graduated from high school there. This kind of hate speech is actually kind of mild compared to the evil I was exposed to as a child and teenager. I'm so glad that good people are getting elected there, decent Democrats from diverse backgrounds who will kick the bigot pandering Republicans out.
May 27 auntie jim commented on Do You Still Trust Hillary Clinton?.
In 2004 we could have defeated W with Howard Dean but John Kerry was supposed to be more electable. This year we could defeat Trump with Sanders but the chicken shit wing of the Democratic party is ready to crown Hillary if Bernie doesn't win a landslide in California. This will probably mean continual Republican dominance in congress whether she wins or not. And possibly the extinction of human kind if Trump wins.
May 18 auntie jim commented on How the Continuation of the Bernie Sanders Campaign Hurts the Chances of a Democrat-Controlled Senate.
Nonsense! Old Hill knows that if Bernie wins California as big as he won here (he'll probably do better) she's toast. Get ready for President Sanders and stuff this line of baloney.
