Brian Kotowski 11 months ago on Lloyd Rollins: Don’t divide the county

It's framed as GOP v Dem & Lib v Conservative because it is, and it's nothing new. I'm originally from Washington state where there's a very similar paradigm. The densely populated western part of the state (Seattle metro) v the more sparsely populated and rural eastern Washington. Dense urban areas tend to be politically liberal; the more rural & sparsely populated regions less so. Since the bulk of political fundraising success is generated where the people are, those of us outside those areas often feel we've been left out in the cold. Because we have been.

Brian Kotowski 11 months, 1 week ago on Becky Plummer: Join me in picketing Jane Fonda's new movie

One wonders if all those whining about a washed up actress in some stupid movie drive, or have ever driven, a Ford. Ford was a virulent anti-Semite who was greatly admired by Hilter. Hitler sang Ford's praises in Mein Kampf and often copied directly from Ford's newspaper The Dearborn Independent, wherein Ford instructed his editors to chronicle “the Jewish Menace.” In the early 20's, Ford published The International Jew: The World's Problem. At Nuremberg, the Hitler Youth honcho testified how enormously influential The International Jew was for the nascent Nazi party; well thumbed copies were found in Hitler's office & a portrait of Ford hung on Hitler's wall in the same room.

“I wish I could send some of my shock troops to Chicago and other big American cities to help in the elections. We look on Heinrich Ford as the leader of the growing fascist movement in America. We admire particularly his anti-Jewish policy which is the Bavarian fascist platform.” [Ford was considering a Presidential run at the time] ~ Adolf Hitler, 3/8/1923

It is not at all difficult to argue that Ford is one of the founding fathers of 20th century radial anti-Semitism, which led to the death camps and the slaughter of millions.

Henry Ford: better or worse than Jane Fonda?

Yikes. Absent a medical issue like a seizure or something, looks like Mr. Bomar will have some 'splainin' to do. Glad no one was hurt.

Brian Kotowski 1 year ago on Do you think recreational pot shops should be allowed in the same areas where liquor stores are allowed?

It's just noise until changes are made to federal law. As long as it remains illegal at the federal level, state authorization is meaningless. From my old stomping grounds today: Feds raid medical marijuana dispensaries in Washington state — where possession is legal. http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/07/24/19664590-feds-raid-medical-marijuana-dispensaries-in-washington-state-where-possession-is-legal?lite

As the lawyer FOR ONE OF THE DISPENSARIES concedes in the television report: "MJ is illegal 24 hours a day 7 days a week under federal law, there is no defense, there is no justification."

Should be fun to watch, though.

There's a reason they're called "accidents." Mistakes happen. So do carelessness & stupidity. Cops can't be everywhere all the time, and are obliged to do a great deal with very limited resources.
