2017 Primary Election Cheat Sheet!

Oh, you self-righteous knuckleheads. The time may have come to cease the use of the somewhat-disparaging term: "people of color", especially when combined with the condescending term "low-income families". What a load.

Ten minutes away from Seattle is like being in a flaming red state. Just ask Tim Eyman. He, and every other snake-oil predator of our gullible citizenry make easy marks of people in order to peddle such shit. It's so simple: Ignorance, illiteracy, fundamentalist dogma, multi-generational stereotypes and the like, will continue to plague a democracy when the people are ill-equipped to discern the charlatans among us.
