    Power to you!  Nurses and medical workers take on the corporate Goliath, Community Health Systems Inc (and I do mean incorporated).  The problem was and still is the putting of profit ahead of patient health at Deaconess Hospital, Spokane, Wa, and at Valley Hospital, Spokane Valley, Wa.

    Since Community Health Systems Inc. started reducing staffing levels at their hospitals in Spokane and Spokane Valley, patient injuries have increased.  Medical staff is POed, went on strike for one day, and is asking for a bargaining date to discuss a return to staffing levels that can adequately take care of the patient health at Spokane Deaconess Hospital and at Valley Hospital.  

    Hospital work is obviously not like manufacturing lawn ornaments.  Human wealth fare is at stake.  Union members at Deaconess Hospital and at Valley Hospital felt a moral obligation to speak up and take a stand about how staffing levels are impacting their ability to take care of patients.  Moreover, union members gave the hospital plenty notice of the strike and plenty time to bring in replacement workers, which they did.  They only went on strike for one day, and then showed up for work.

    Kevin Graman reports at SpokaneWatch.net.

    There is a new website with Cathy McMorris Rodgers voting record.  It leaves no doubt that she is a an extreme conservative who rarely deviates from her Republican party on important national issues.  Even the Walla Walla Bulletin had this to say.

    McMorris Rodgers is a rigid conservative and highly partisan . . . [and] isn't willing to compromise on major national issues.-Editorial Board, Walla Walla Union Bulletin.

    You will want to check out the site for more details, but let's cut to the chase.  Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers voted with the Republican leadership 97% of the time in the 111th Congress while casting 1654 votes. This makes her one of the most partisan and conservative members of congress.  McMorris Rodgers voted for the extreme 2013 GOP Budget to end Medicare as we know it. Likewise, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers voting record agreed with the American Conservative Union 96% percent of the time. Also, the Club for Growth scored her as voting with them 94% of the time, Family Research Council 100% of the time, the National Taxpayers Union 89% of the time, and the National Chamber of Commerce 100% of the time (see 极星vpn).

    The over all integrity of a nation will most immediately and powerfully be impacted by the models presented by its political parties.

    That modeling ought to be a natural attention-grabber.

    That modeling ought to present a public affirmation of concern for good of the country rather than political opportunism as the height of its most significant values - or the depth of its apathetic depravity.

    "There seemed to be no point to the gathering other to give some gun owners an opportunity to show off their toys in public.

    What gets me, every time I see black-clad guys and gals strutting around with their weapons, is how little they have to be proud about. It takes zero courage and zero skill to own a gun. All you need is a VISA card. Shooting defenseless animals from long range, or defenseless targets, earns zero "guts points."

    I respect people who take risks ... for having the guts to risk getting hurt in the course of developing their skills.

    Ditto for combat soldiers who use their guns to fight guys who also have guns. But walking around the Oregon Capitol with an AR-15... that's ridiculously lame."

    They have all now childishly teamed up to become a significant part of the problem with no relationship to the solution.

    The absence of any sense of civic responsibility is overwhelmingly louder than any party or broadcast rhetoric itself.

    As most of you know, years ago Tim Eyman launched an successful initiative effort to require a two-thirds majority in the Washington State Legislature for the passage of new taxes.  The two-thirds majority movement has gone local.  

    The Spokane City Council recently voted in favor of placing Prop 1 for two-thirds rule on the local February ballot (along with two other issues including Prop 1 for independent investigative powers for the Spokane Police Ombudsman).  The effort for the 2/3 majority ballot title was supported by Mike Fagan (in the picture to the right), freshman city council person, and frequent co-sponsor of Eyman initiatives to reduce state revenue needed for parks, education, environmental protection, and other services from the State of Washington. Because of the number of seats on the Spokane City Council, this would effectively be a five-sevenths (5/7) majority needed to pass new revenue proposals.

    You likely have already figured out whether you are voting for President Barack Obama or Mitt Romney. However, what about for the Commissioner of Public Lands? Or Initiative 1185? Judicial races? The ProgressiveVotersGuide.com by Fuse Washington can help.
    The [2012] election has huge implications for our families, our communities, and our state. Our goal is to make smart, informed voting based on progressive values easier for you.

    "I wish to state that under no circumstances would I support Matt Shea for any public office," Senator Bob McCaslin (R) stated to the Spokane County Commissioners as they were deliberating who to appoint to a vacate seat to State House.

    "He [Matt Shea] is dangerous enough in the House, and would be a serious menace to good governance as a Senator" --Gary W. Smith, Spokane Valley 4th District Republican

    He was speeding like he usually does. He admits it. Leroy Norris likes to put the pedal to the metal, and last November he was returning home to his residence on the South Hill at a fast clip in his Chevy Lumina.

    Then, a pickup truck drove along-side of Leroy, and the driver pulled a handgun out of his glove box in plain view of Leroy. Leroy freaked out, and he took off at an even higher speed in fear for his life. Really, who wouldn't be afraid?

    With little or no concern for the safety of other drivers, pedestrians, or kids playing in the neighborhood, the driver of the pickup truck proceeds to chase Leroy Norris up the South Hill on Monroe Street. One or both vehicles exceeded 60-miles per hour at times through the residential area.

    "I am Sheryl Gordon McCloud, and I am running for the Washington State Supreme Court. In fact, I am the front runner for the Washington State Supreme Court now coming out of the primary election and going into the November general election. I have spent twenty-five years arguing in favor of constitutional rights in front of the Washington Supreme Court and my expertise in that has been recognized by endorsements from the Spokesman Review over to the Seattle Times. I intend to be a justice that is fair and who carries on my practice of creating a level playing field even for those who cannot afford a lawyer: Cheryl Gordon-McCloud for the Washington State Supreme Court."

    Washington State Voters' Guide is Supported by Kathleen Drew for Washington State Secretary State

    I was impressed with Kathleen Drew, candidate for Washington State Secretary of State, when I met her at the Lentil Festival in Pullman a few months ago.  She had a good clear grasp of the issues affecting the Office of the Secretary of State,  including the need to more fully fund the Washington State Voters' Guide, or the Voter's pamphlet if you will.

    Below is the text of the youtube video of her, compliments of Eastern Washington Voters.

    Todd Mielke: When is a bribe not a bribe?

    Spokane County Commissioner Todd Mielke recently got some unwanted press.  Developer Lancze Douglass asked Todd Mielke for some help with some county business.  Todd Mielke allegedly turned around and asked him for a campaign contribution.

    However, Lancze Douglass would not have anything to do with it, so he told Mike Prager of the Spokesman Review the story.

    The Stimulus Act of 2009 has been working, and we appreciate that Jay Inslee supported it when he was in Congress.  The Act has helped create jobs in Liberty Lake, WA, and boost Washington employment in general.

    The Demand Energy project in Liberty Lake, WA, will retain and create about 90 Liberty Lake jobs in the County of Spokane. As part of the 2009 Stimulus Package, the company Demand Energy received a $1. 5 million grant to make energy storage devices for on-site users of electricity.

    上海交通大学_央广网 - cnr.cn:上海交通大学是我国历史最悠久、享誉海内外的高等学府之一,迄今已有121年历史。可伍用三句话来概括:百廿交大因图强而生,百廿交大因改革而兴,百廿交大因人才而盛。

    As a typical egotistical, arrogant, columnist/blogger, I usually think I can express my viewpoints better than anyone else. But when it comes to summing up the Ron Paul situation, the conservative blogger Erick Erikson says everything anyone needs to know.

    This is from Erick's column today in www.redstate.com:

    "Let me get this straight.

    Twenty years ago someone put some crazy, racist stuff in newsletters bearing Ron Paul's name and written in the first person as if they were from Ron Paul.

    Ron Paul never read them.

    Ten years ago, when confronted with some of the crazy stuff (I'm trying really hard not to use "crazy s**t" here), Ron Paul says he wrote them, but they must be taken in their whole context to understand them.

    Fast forward to the present and Ron Paul never wrote them, does not know who wrote them, cannot recall the names of anyone who worked for him who might have written them, is shocked to learn he made big money off them, and people think this guy has the qualifications to be President of the United States?

    Letting someone write bat crap crazy stuff under your name, not knowing who they are or what they are doing, profiting from them, then taking responsibility before denying responsibility is credible?!
