State politics very well may be his goal. But I think this is another wedge issue to distract from governing. Maybe next it'll be about buying raw milk.

Isn't it great having 3 republicans in power?

Could be he's wondering what good those late campaign "contributions" are doing him (After Stewart's IGWT vote) and testing Princess Jeanne's loyalty. She passed his smell test with this one.

See No Evil-Speak No Evil-Hear No Evil-Something Smells Bad

Clark County – parent and individual rights take priority:

Clark County Councilors also serve as the Clark County Board of Health. We were in unanimous agreement in this week’s meeting on Wednesday that our Board should not support House Bill 2009. That bill would take away parents authority over their children’s health, in particular their vaccinations. 
http://lawfilesext.leg.wa.gov/…/Bills/House%20Bills/2009.pdf

The bill would grant the state authority to inject their children with whatever vaccination the state dictates even over the objection of the parents. Current state law respects parent rights in this area. HB2009 removes that parent right.

Of course, public health risks are increased if parents decline certain vaccinations. Yet parents, not the state, are endowed with the discretion as to how to care for their children. To elevate the state over the parent is to violate our Washington State Constitution which states:

Preamble: We, the people of the State of Washington, grateful to the Supreme Ruler of the Universe for our liberties, do ordain this constitution.

Article 1, Section 1: All political power is inherent in the people, and governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, and are established to protect and maintain individual rights.

http://leg.wa.gov/LawsAndAgencyRules/...

When conflicts occur between state rights and parent rights, parents must win. Agree?

I wouldn't give that advice to a dyslexic.

Well said. It's unfortunate Vulcans are disqualified from running for President. More logic would be welcomed.

-Like Humans, Dogs Too Prefer Quality food Over Quantity, Study-

A latest University of Kentucky study found a similarity between eating habits of dogs and humans and monkeys. Just like humans, dogs also prefer quality over quantity.

For the study, the researchers offered baby carrots and string cheese to 10 dogs of various breeds. The study was conducted on dogs that were fond of cheese. When the animals were given a choice between one slice of cheese and a piece of carrot with cheese, nine of them chose the cheese slice instead of the carrot combo.

This experiment proves the "less is more effect," a heuristic or mental shortcut that prefers quality or quantity when considering options. The researchers found that dogs analyzed the quality of the cheese plus carrot instead of the quantity of food before making a choice.

.

In the study, the one dog that chose the cheese-and-carrot combination lived in shelters and had to look after itself.

[When the 'cheese only" dogs of various breeds were asked why they love cheese, nine responded with "WOOF", and the one that ate the carrot responded, "I'm just happy to be here".]

Anyhow - Is a Socialist a Leftist? I'll continue to claim that the European (German and some Scandinavian countries) combination of Socialism and Democracy is far superior to our system.

roger — February 23, 2015 at 12:58 p.m.

I agree with that. And like you I have experienced their system firsthand.

Something was on a Maher vid I posted earlier that echoed what I've thought for quite awhile. We're young as a country and we'll come around in time to improve on many of our issues like the economy and health care. That said, I just hope we don't blow ourselves up, or starve ourselves out first.
