WARNING: THIS SITE FEATURES ORIGINAL THINKING...Jim Croce once sang Don't tug on Superman's cape..., which seems like reasonable advice should we not wish to anger the supreme powers. We do have this duality in our culture: the Superman that is the state collective, the leftist call to a politics of meaning managed by the state, the deification of "we're from the government and we'll take care of you" - versus the Superman that celebrates individual freedom, private property, freedom of conscience, free enterprise, and limited government. We humbly take on the latter's mantle and, eschewing the feeble tug, we dare to PULL, in hope of seeing freedom's rescue from the encroaching nanny state. We invite you, dear reader, to come and pull as well... Additionally, if you assume that means that we are unflinching, unquestioning GOP zombies, that would be incorrect. We reject statism in any form and call on individuals in our country to return to the original, classical liberalism of our founders. (We're also passionate about art, photography, cooking, technology, Judeo/Christian values, and satire as unique, individual pursuits of happiness to celebrate.)

WA Governor's Race: Laughable 'public disclosure'
Filed in: Current Affairs, Politics, WA Governor's Race

Last week - on March 14th - the King County Council met and covered - among other things - questions about the 2004 elections process.

Ostensibly, the purpose of this meeting was to allay the public's fears about what transpired in the race for Governor.


Presiding at the meeting was Larry Phillips - Council Chair - yes that Larry Phillips - the partisan Democrat that got almost 600 rejected ballots manually counted at the last moment during the final phase of the final recount with King County demurely being the last of the 39 counties to certifiy their results.

Number of times the issue of Larry Phillips, partisan Democrat, forcing the Canvassing Board to vote (in a 2-1 partisan vote) to count these 'found' ballots at the last moment discussed at this meeting: 0

Number of times it was pointed out in the meeting that Larry Phillips, partisan Democrat, controls Dean Logan's budget: 0

Nothing about the insipid nature of their biased relationship prevented Larry from holding Dean Logan's hand in talking about what poor King County can and can't do to purge deceased voters from its voter rolls. Watch this clip (requires Real Networks Media Player) from the King County recording of this meeting.

Here are two partisan Democrats - patting each other on the back and pretending before the cameras that they don't really have a close relationship - saying that King County can only eliminate dead voters from its rolls if someone notifies them of the death prior to the election, if a family member notifies them, or if the state department of health notifies them. They couldn't possibly do anything proactively now could they? They would have to be authorized by law to clean up their data now wouldn't they? Poor, poor, little King County elections ... I'm sorry, it just makes me sick. If the Chairman of this council were in a court of law (well, a non-activist court of law) the objections would be immediately sustained for leading the witness.

Wouldn't you think that if the Council were concerned about any issues of partisanship that the public might perceive or that they thought it important that all questions that the public might have interest in exploring with King County election officials that Larry Phillips would recuse himself from this meeting and invite a non-partisan individual or two partisan individuals or someone or some group that was not at the center of controversy over what happened in King County to chair this meeting? Apparently not.

If you want to watch the entire three and one-half hour meeting it is here (Requires Real Media Player).

More on this meeting to follow. It is rich with blatant Democrat hypocrisy.

I hope you keep up the good work - I wish I saw this a few hours ago so I could hyperlink to it... but I was too busy flying in Ukraine County dropping napalm on a train w/ ballots and protecting a wingmate bombing fraudulent voters...
(Okay, that was on Fighters Anthology - but you get the idea...)

My 'Allycat Angel' in King County Council tells me that the debate was stifiled and from the bit of the live feed I saw - Ron Sims better prepare to lose... and lose big!
