Predicting John Laird’s Sunday, February 5, 2012 Editorial

by lewwaters

I predict John’s Sunday editorial will be a slobbering approval of the Senate passing homosexual marriage and he will not even mention the $1.5 Billion budget gap still facing the state that has not been a priority.

UPDATE: I was wrong. Instead of slobbering all over himself for the homosexual marriage passing in the Senate, John decided to once again go on a rant and bash Sen. Don Benton, Republican of course over wanting to see English as our official language.

Oddly enough, Laird ends his rant with, “Other legislative priorities? Like balancing budgets, creating jobs and improving schools? Hey, this ain’t Buckaroo’s first rodeo. He leaves that stuff to the rookies.”

Isn’t that exactly what we have saying as the legislature has wasted nearly half of the session promoting homosexual marriage?

And to show what a sick perverted mind Laird has, he also pens, “And as a musician, I can keep a steady beat with ‘Oye como va,’ the Latin rock classic made popular by Santana. And when Patti LaBelle belts out ‘Lady Marmalade,’ I can slap a pretty good drawl on ‘voulez-vous coucher avec moi (ce soir)’?”

That last sentence translates to “would you sleep with me (tonight)?”

Japan Says Arigato (Thank You)

After the devastating earthquake and tsunami struck Japan last year, all hope might have seemed lost. Except the world turned out in large numbers to rush to Japan’s aid.

How classy of the Japanese to now send a “Thank You” (Arigato in their language) out to all who helped through such difficult times.

I don’t recall ever seeing such a thanks before.

Sad, Really Sad

by lewwaters

Once again we are being asked all over the state to approve levies to send more money to schools, just as we have done nearly every election. School levies usually pass easily and funding never seems to be enough, according to the Teachers Union.

As our legislature focused primarily on homosexual marriage so far this session, some sorely needed education reform bills died in committee.

As you contemplate giving more of your money to schools, consider the following video taped in Washington State where High School students were asked basic questions that even Grammar School students should know. Ask yourself, are we getting our monies worth?
