Last week I counted 48 bills introduced by R's in in this Congress that include restricting abortion -- Bills like the Border Jobs for Veterans Act of 2015: A bill to actively recruit members of the Armed Forces who are separating from military service to serve as Customs and Border Protection Officers. Section 3 of that bill is the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. I counted only eight bills relating to jobs, but they're fronts for other radical conservative agendas, too -- five include repealing the ACA. They ran on and talk a lot about how jobs was priority one. I'm not sure about Pakootas as a congressperson but what he says about how Spokane County people are struggling in comparison to the state is true -- many working people in our region are struggling and Cathy simply doesn't care. She cares about traveling the country raising money for her party. She's just another government hater getting rich off the government.
Of course there was this yesterday: http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/heimda….
People who are willing to double the fossil fuel cars coming through our community are either naive or tools for the fossil fuel industries. Growers are already being pushed off BNSF because the fossil fuel industries can afford to pay so much more. The detrimental environmental impacts to land and people are proven and well documented. When something happens - and yes, these things already happen with alarming regularity - it will not be small but massive, tragic and devastating. There is no such thing as a minor oil train accident.
BNSF is spending billions just like BP spent billions. While you wouldn't know it from the millions they now spend on their media charm offensive, the area remains wrecked and peoples' lives ruined, people who unfortunately don't have the millions to spend to have their voices heard.
Yeah, a really nice guy who creates and believes in torture all while bilking the public for millions. The guy is evil.
Thanks, Bill (aka GSI). But I'll pass, too.
