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.
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.
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.
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.
