Joe Kennedy, Satanists, and the Misuse of the Establishment Clause

The story about Bremerton Washington assistant football coach Joe Kennedy and his postgame prayers has been well publicized.  We have all seen it somewhere.  Here’s a guy who doesn’t make a big deal about praying. He goes out to the field after the game, prays a very inclusive and “love your fellow man” kind of prayer, and then goes home. According to komonews.com, Kennedy has been praying before and after the games since 2008, and it only recently became a problem with the school district. Read more […]

Our Great Country where Schools Can Give 11-Year-Old Girls IUDs without Parental Notification

The Daily Mail is reporting that thirteen schools in Washington State are distributing IUDs to girls as young as eleven. Here’s a story to help you celebrate your freedoms and your right to self-government this Independence Day: The Daily Mail reports, “Seattle high school sparks outrage over policy which allows it to give IUD contraceptives to girls as young as ELEVEN – without seeking permission from parents.” A public school in Washington State is offering taxpayer-funded intrauterine Read more […]

What Entrepreneur Charity Proves about the Living Wage

Paying all employees a living wage is a grand experiment in charity. KDSK.com calls Dan Price a Seattle CEO, but Newser.com identifies him as an entrepreneur. That is important to keep in mind because Price is definitely starting a risky investment. According to his plans he is going to pay everyone at his company $70,000 a year. KDSK.com: “Seattle CEO to pay employees $70,000 minimum wage.” The CEO of a Seattle company is reportedly boosting the minimum wage for every one of his employees Read more […]

Jury Banned from Hearing Why Defendants Are on Trial

A judge decreed defense lawyers may not say that defendants are on trial because they obeyed state law to deal with sickness. Trial by jury and the First Amendment are both waved about as symbols of American greatness and superiority. But whenever something arises that is important to the government, the actual practice of those things gets evaded. I posted recently about a prosecutor attempting to have a judge censor a defendant at his trial, but in that case the judge did the right thing. The Read more […]

More Anti-Liberal Abolition of Tolerance from Liberals

Tolerance used to mean agreeing to disagree with those of differing convictions. You respectfully discuss an issue, and leave one another alone, even if you never experience a meeting of the minds. Today, tolerance means punishing those who disagree with you, and bankrupting them. How sweet. I wonder if Eric Holder and the ACLU would go to bat for a KKK group whose request for a cake depicting a lynching was rejected by a black baker. The Daily Signal reports: “Great-Grandma Florist Could Read more […]

Museum Censorship: Attacking the Second Amendment Means Attacking the First

Museum censorship takes place when a museum must get rid of displays to satisfy political correctness. A museum uses historical artifacts to communicate about the past. It educates viewers using real objects. The Lynden Pioneer Museum, in the northwest part of Washington State, has now been censored by a new voter-approved law. As the Bellingham Herald reported: The Lynden Pioneer Museum will remove World War II-era guns from a current exhibit and return them to their owners, to avoid Read more […]

Liability Insanity Stripping U.S. Playgrounds

I wish I could blame this on a specific government agency or authority, but the problem is widespread cultural liability insanity. Here’s the way KEPR reported it: “Richland School District Is Saying Goodbye to Swings.” Many playgrounds have replaced cement with cedar or rubber surfacing. The cement was just too dangerous. Now, swings are in the line of fire. Swings are being phased out of Richland schools. The district says pressure from insurance companies  over the liability is part Read more […]

So Is It Illegal Now to Discriminate Against Pot Smokers?

This story is supposedly a “happy ending.” NBC reports, “‘Firing’ Over Legal Marijuana Called Mistake, Man Gets His Job Back.” This pot controversy went up in smoke. A Washington state man who was the first person in Spokane to buy legal recreational marijuana this week, and then said he was fired over the resulting media coverage, got his job back Thursday and the company in question called the whole affair a misunderstanding. Michael Boyer, 30, said he was ordered to take a drug Read more […]

Edmonds School District Submits to Michelle Obama: No Birthday Food Celebrations

Michelle Obama and her entourage of Federal thugs have zero control on what kids buy and eat on their way home from school. She has zero control over how they eat at home. In fact, among lower income kids, it is virtually certain that many are growing obese on government food stamps. So her forces are actually fattening up these kids—for what end, I don’t care to guess. So, in the midst of all the rows of cheap doughnuts and chips (filled with government subsidized wheat and corn, all of which Read more […]

May Obamacare End Along With the Careers of the Politicians Supporting It!

From Union-Bulletin.com: With the news this week that more than 600,000 Washington residents have acquired new health care plans through the state exchange, U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, a stalwart opponent of the Affordable Care Act, said it’s unlikely the President Obama’s landmark program will be repealed. “We need to look at reforming the exchanges,” the Eastern Washington Republican said Thursday. The five-term congresswoman and chair of the House Republican Conference kicked Read more […]

Pat Buchanan Condemns Freedom To Smoke Pot And Own AR-15s

As the Daily Caller (who originally posted the video) reports: Buchanan discussed legalization with John McLaughlin during Saturday’s “The McLaughlin Group,” with McLaughlin asking whether “the era of pot prohibition is coming to an end.” “I think it is, to a degree, coming to an end, which means there will be more potheads, and more high school dropouts and more automobile accidents involving marijuana, John,” he said. […] “There’s no doubt that there’s a real trend Read more […]

Washington State Obamacare Has Emptied Bank Accounts

From KGW News: For the second week in a row, the Washington Healthplanfinder website is down, and it’s causing problems for people who are dealing with billing issues. Some of them say the website is mistakenly debiting their accounts. Shannon Bruner of Indianola logged on to her checking account Monday morning, and found she was almost 800 dollars in the negative. “The first thing I thought was, ‘I got screwed,’” she said. Her first thought was obviously accurate! She was not expecting Read more […]
