Senators Cantwell & Murray

This is an open letter to you two, showing your two faced position on transporting oil. Your two votes beat the Senate vote. Are you now going to shut up about oil trains?

It appears that you have sold out to Obama and his ilk.Have you already forgotten the vast numbers of Washington voters that are very concerned about the mile long oil trains snaking through our cities. These too are conservationists. The choice between a pipeline and trains is obvious.
 
Safety has been ignored  so that you can continue to be a serf to the Sierra Club. .You need to remember that you serve Washington not Nebraska, or California. If/when the next derailment happens, don't duck and hide. I will remember, and I will report.

RIOTS WERE ORGANIZED

When the president of the United States and his lackey, the attorney general of the U.S. rush to judgement it is important to remember that this was a racist act. Not a thoughtful occasion where they were supposed to calm people and teach restraint, they reverted to the jungle warfare of the 60's.

I was in Los Angeles during the Watts Riots, and worked about two miles from the crap going on. I was armed with a loaded weapon in my car, since in some cases if a white motorist was stopped at a light, the rioters would pull them out of their vehicles.

It would seem that with racist agitators like Al Sharpton and his ilk inciting and organizing these riots that according to the locals were mostly from other areas, was a well organized crime. Please do not use the inaccurate term Civil Disobedience First, if it is civil, then it isn't disobedient. If it is disobedient, then a crime has been committed.

If you wish to believe that across our country, hundreds of protesters just happened to be in the area, I've got a bridge for sale. (cheap.)

This, along with other riots of this type are well organized, with professional signs that obviously were pre-prepared well in advanced of the verdict. It must be stated that at least four members of the Grand Jury are black. I point this out because not all blacks take to the streets when things aren't   to their liking. The vast majority are law abiding citizens that do not burn down their own town.

It is time to indict the agitators, such as Sharpton and even the U.S. Attorney General, who clearly prejudged the event.

When I was in Southern California in the '60's, the black protesters burned down Watts. Their own neighborhoods. This type of action has a momentum all it's own. This city too, will burn to the ground. These citizens of Ferguson will have to drive further  for groceries and other services, because outside agitators destroyed their city.

All because they didn't understand why a 160 pound cop that had already been beaten severely by a 300 pound young punk, retaliated with the only weapon he had, when the assailant turned back toward him to finish the deal.

Police are taught to never draw a weapon unless they intend to use it. When they do, they are taught not to shoot once then blow the smoke out of the barrel, but to empty the clip. Only in the movies do you shoot to wound.

I wonder if some or even many of the rioters have names like Mohammed or Amad? Why would ISIS pass up an opportunity like this?

The wounds in Missouri, will linger well past  the time of rebuilding. In one scene I witnessed on TV, A circle of residents surrounded the front of a store that was being looted. Sad that more didn't care to defend their community. One that will never be the same unless the black population buys into justice.

CONNECT THE DOTS



In my mind, the most important aspect of President Obama's unilateral act of legalizing the residency of 5 million people will be liberal tainted voter fraud.

Connect the dots. First you import 5 million residencies, then throughout the country, courts are knocking down voter  identification rules that were opposed as being unfair to minorities.

Here in Idaho, all you need is a drivers license and a utility bill showing that you actually live in the precinct.

As I understand it, several states including California are issuing drivers licenses to undocumented non-citizens. No birth certificate required.

This is the biggest con I have ever seen in government corruption. It isn't about jobs. Most farmers are crying for laborers while fruit and vegetables rot in the fields and orchards.

It is about perpetuating the socialist trends in the Democratic Party by stacking the deck.

I don't remember which statesman made this comment, but paraphrased, it boiled down to this: When the people receiving government services outnumber those that are paying for them, this country will have lost it's collective freedom.

The Congress of the United States need to take back control from Emperor Obams who delights in ruling by fiat. We are in deep trouble, folks.

SWX MYSTERY SOLVED

For several weeks I've not had a picture on SWX, just sound. I decided it was time to solve the mystery. First I called KHQ. They said," no problem, we show a picture going out here. It must be a problem with Time-Warner Cable."

OK, fine. I called Time Warner. One customer service Representative told me it was a problem with my box. The next call was the opposite. No it couldn't be the box, we'll send out a technician They made an appointment for five days later, and told me to check often to see if the picture came back.

The day arrived. The picture was still missing after several weeks.  The repairman was puzzled and made repeated calls to the inside technicians. Finally he comes back in the house to tell me that KHQ had quietly discontinued the analog  system and just broadcasts digital High Resolution now. That my friends  is a good trick when a broadcaster fakes out a cable company.

Apparently I was the only complaint, since they kept saying they had no other customer complaints. A strange ending to a strange problem. One wonders if KHQ lowered the price they charge to Time-Warner. Such is the digital era.

CAN'T HAVE IT BOTH WAYS

I find it puzzling when I try to engage the left in a discussion about violence and firearms. While the left wing media is constant in their promotion of anti gun laws, their cousins in Hollywood are cranking out movies and computer games that are extreme in their violence.

The characters in these shows, movies and games are constantly firing at each other, mostly with automatic weapons which are illegal to posses in most cases, or blowing people up with explosives.

You cannot teach an entire generation of young people that violence is normal and expect a desensitized population to abhor death. If the left really wants to make the country safe from school shootings they should perhaps stop teaching kids to shoot others.

It this isn't a simple example of contradictory behavior then there never was one.

THE IRONY OF IT ALL

The situation in Ferguson, Missouri is working up to a lynch mot mentality as the public waits for the grand jury to announce their findings. Judging by the amount of activity and the statements from authority I would guess that they are getting advance notice that the grand jury will exonerate the police officer.

When/if that happens the black community will tear the town apart with the possibility that they will attempt to lynch the officer. This is where the irony falls. With the old days of the Klu Klux Klan and blacks being lynched it appears that the crowds are not looking for justice, but revenge. No voices are being heard about whether the diminutive size of the officer vs the huge black guy trying his best to beat the cop to death.

If in fact he genuinely feared for his life then as I understand it, he has the right to use deadly force. I see a tragedy unfolding here with people like the US attorney general and good old Al Sharpton, professional agitator inciting the black community. The possibility of the cop being thrown under the bus to placate the community exists, without due process.

TRIBAL POLITICS

If you look at Sub-Saharan Africa as well as the northern territories, many countries consist of tribes that do not get along. Centuries old animosities separate these people into tribal enclaves. A country that is divided into tribal areas will not survive as a country with a central government.

Look at the Congo and surrounding tribal areas. The worst thing Belgians and other European countries did was grant them independence without a training period. No educated class, just jungle and spears that determine who rules the roost.

When Gadafi was overthrown, the country separated into warring tribal factions. Perhaps even Morocco could be in that class even though they have a stable monarchy. Originally, the Berbers called Morocco home. In later years, Arabic people moved in.

We will have either dictators or Anarchy. Counties divided by tribal loyalties will never be at peace.

The last European country to be tribal was Germany which bound by a common language managed many years ago to centralize, but the still refer to themselves as Hessians, or Bavarians, etc.

The bottom line is we have to stop trying to model other countries with other social imperatives after our own nation. It won't work and in many cases we will hand over control to the leased civilized group.
