About Me

Being a miliary town nobody thought we'd get on the balllot let alone win with 64% of the vote. Former chair of peace and justice project for a UMC congregation in Tacoma, Washington.

Dear Mr. Former Speaker:

I wish to encourage you to do your bit to help this nation out tremendously.
By the oratorical skills you possess and the resources at your command,
please use them to enlighten the 2012 presidential race.

Only you have the unbridled confidence, the aggresive style
and the nothing to lose bility to make a run from the right.
You will not only be the darling of the right wing evangelical
establishment, but the Lord wants you in this race!

Sample of a possible letter to encourage the Newt to run 3rd party


Per this morning's Tacoma News Tribune....Occupy Tacoma one of the longest continuing Occupy sites (at Donald Pugnetti Park So. 21st and Pacific Avenue) has recieved a visit by the Department of Transportation which land Occupy is situated upon and have been warned that they are going to get evicted. In addition a fence company came by and measured the perimeter of the park. The City of Tacoma and the Washington State Department of Transportation is hiding behind unquoted and unamed sources that neighbors and businesses have complained. To my knowledge only one neighbor and no businesses have complained. In fact the site has gotten aong extremely well with others in the area.

IMHO wha it boils down to re two things:

1) the Federal Court aqndFederal offices are a block away. The Feds historically have used te park as a social area and a place for relaxation and eating lunch during the spring and summer...with Occupy there, they would not be able to do that, or least most wouldn't want to.

2) as stated in the Trib this morning: "The park is an entrance to the city-into the museum district and shopping area along Pacific Avenue-and maybe that this doesn't present Tacoma in the best light"

WTF: we're going to violated people's free speech because some fucking caitalistic greedy asshole of a business owner is afraid he/she might lose a customer or two? Well as fa as I am concern both the business communit and the feds can kiss my ass. STAY STRONG OCCUPY TACOMA.

Olympia and Seattle folks...we migt need witnesses on a quick bsis..please stand by!

I agree to give you an example

on October 27, 1988 I was one of seven who went to a George Bush for president rally in Tacoma, Washington...11 minutes into the rally I yelled "What about the poor George Bush, what about the poor?" at which point I was spit on, hit over the head with yard sign and had my glasses ripped off of me, and I was the one arrested and charged with disorderly conduct!

Willard's Dollar's

One of the biggest problems I percieve with Romney is that he uses his money to stifle free expression and participation in the Democratic process. Two of his statements made that clear: A) I made Ted Kennedy take a second mortgage out on his house to run against me. B)If you need income in the political position you are running for, you shouldn't run.

21 years ago I ran against a 14 year entrenched incumbant from the left. I did it on 58K and he spent 500K I got 42% of the primary vote. We were both not rich and yes it was an uphill fight but I was still there in the ballgame. I couldn't do that today...not with a guy like Willard.

Romney instead of using his fortune for the common good, uses it instead to stifle people and to enrich himself even further. Willard is the classic example of the problem that really started with Reagan when he ran: it's ok to be selfish!

Not only is Willard a stiff, wierd son of a bitch, but he is a self centered, smug bastard as well. His attitude smacks of I've got mine so fuck you!!!

Let us pray that this asshole doesn't get the presidency!
