Re: “Why Sen. Andy Billig voted against freezing the $2 billion class-size initiative

I agree that these discussions should have been held at the BEGINNING of the legal legislative session. We need to pass a law that the budget has to be completed prior to any other activity period. I know their excuse is that the budget forecast information isn't out until nearly the end of the session. Fix that! Either start forecast modeling earlier, or start the normal session later. Easy fix. Personally, I have a real hard time agreeing to pay these divisive yahoos extra to do the job we sent them to do. How many other jobs are there where you get paid extra for not doing your work? By the way, the legislators who voted to suspend the will of the voters will certainly find themselves suspended in the next election.

Re: “Why Sen. Andy Billig voted against freezing the $2 billion class-size initiative

What kind of fantasy world is Andy Billig living in? He calls it a "manufactured" crisis? I would say getting a budget passed 20 minutes before the state shut down operations is a rather legitimate crisis.
How did he not know this was coming? Somehow the House democrats knew and voted in favor. Why were these discussions not had in February and March, when they should have been working on the budget.

Re: “Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich vs. ISIS, white supremacists and the ACLU

Did Ozzie state how many law enforcement officers in the area have been attacked by "sovereign citizens", white supremacists, and ISIS members? I was under the impression that number is close to zero.

Re: “Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich vs. ISIS, white supremacists and the ACLU

Lael, the Republican Party did not sponsor the event. It was sponsored by a private club that calls themselves "The Republicans of Spokane County." Many people have made the same understandable mistake you did, in thinking that their name means they are the party. That club was started in late 2008 or early 2009 with the split between the Republican "old guard" and the "new" anti-war Ron Paul contingent. It's unfortunate that they are unwilling to take steps to clear up that confusion.

Source: I'm on the executive board of the Spokane County Republican Party.

I also wonder if I'm the "elected official" he was talking about that says that ISIS is not a threat to America. We did have that conversation, and I stand by my statement that they aren't. I do question my "status" as an elected official, though. I'm an elected Precinct Committee Officer, and was elected by my PCOs to represent them on the party's executive board, but that's about as far as it goes. Maybe he wasn't talking about me - if that's the case, I probably agree with said elected official.

Jack: The Republican party sponsored the event and secured the venue and the badges I referred to were name tag type pins that read "Republican". I'm sure there were members of other parties in attendance, but it was a primarily republican crowd.

Re: “Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich vs. ISIS, white supremacists and the ACLU

Lael, I do not understand the reference to "badge wearing Republicans". Does this mean the only people in attendance were law enforcement officers who are members of the republican party. There were no Democrats in attendance?

I've located a blog written by Sgt. X (retired). This adds another layer to the mystery of this multi-faceted man.

Re: “State Democrats want indicted auditor Troy Kelley out

It would be nice if this article would identify the political party that Kelley is affiliated. Isn't that relevant?

I am not sure if the office is nonpartisan but Kelley is a Democrat.

My family will be without income unless we can file unemployment. Will the unemployment office be shut down?

Re: “Dominguez quits Ombudsman Commission: "Process has been anything but fair"

Gee Muddydog you don't make any sense... of whom do you speak? Who's entitled and to what? What do you know of these people and their actions. Really, you're rather quite simplistic (look it up). Sad.
