Why has Hillary super delegate and TPP apologist Senator Murray still failed to endorced Joe? She sure seems perfectly at ease featuring local tribal members in well scripted ads. Did State Dem leader Jaxon Ravens initiate some sort of police tape, "Do Not Cross" order to punish Joe for daring to introduce Bernie at rallies attended by thousands of young people as Bill Clinton struggled to fill a captive audience gym? This is why I'm done with the corruption of incumbant Dems, and the DNC as a party. There is no diversity, just retaliation and favoritism.
Why did this article fail to note Pakootas substantial victories against Canadian Mining Interest's decades-long practise of dumping raw slag into the Upper Columbia?
Certainly Pakootas successful efforts to clean up Lake Roosevelt are indicative of his willingness to fight for all of us in the 5th.
Meanwhile, Cathy McMorris Rodgers has dedicated her attention, power, and substantial resources to protecting Monsanto from litigation-- rather than forcing the company to share in the clean up costs of mitigating pollution found in the Spokane River--a river Monsanto subsidiaries certainly had a huge role in compromising--so much so, we rival Flint MI and it's unsafe to consume a single fish taken from the river.
Cathy has well-earned a long record of dishonesty --from her dishonorable treatment of First Nations to her denying not being invited to the initial ribbon cutting of the North South Freeway because she absolutely opposed initial funding efforts.
Furthermore, she is the only candidate in this race where Big Pharma paid for a full page "thank you" ad in the Spokesman Review congradulating her for her allegiance to their interests. They probably even threw in a case of comped epi pens for her trouble.
It is also curious that the Mayor's Office stonewalls this information for months and chooses to release it when many people are still distracted from storm clean up, they have no power and it's the day before a major holiday weekend. Condon seems quite skilled at modeling Cathy McMorris Rodger's ethical lapses.
I find it curious that such a questionable politician ( remember his "self-imposed" promise of term limits ) is so selective in his crafting of these sermons from the mount of hypocrisy.
Could it be, Mr. Nethercutt, that your cynical lust for power and dishonest public record is exactly the contributing factor that has lead to this crisis of apathy?
And that most of us are onto a timeless truth-- that those who most often feel the need to preach their values tend to be the same ones who don't practice those values in their personal lives?
I'd even offer that those in denim built this region and those in suits have attempted to ruin it. And you'd be right to assume I don't own a tie.
You´ve got to be kidding me, I mean really George, sure you´ve joked with us before and we sort of got it. Especially that bit about term limits for one---that was a riot. Funny man, you. But this time, are you serious? Or is this a humor piece? A parody, maybe?"George W. Bush set forth unwavering American principles of freedom..."? And what would those be exactly? Freedom to out CIA agents? Freedom to come up with trite little-boy responses to confront big world issues? "Evil Doers, Security Color Codes, Defense of Marriage, Torture and secret renditions to justify our still non existent "homeland security"? Undermining the middle class at home in favor of corporate exploitation of workers abroad? Defying the will of congress to force Mexican Trucks on US and Canadian Highways? Letting China violate our intellectual property, undermine our currency, and walk all over human rights safeguards?That line about George Bush setting forth unwavering American principles of Freedom, that was a joke right?
