SB 5078 – forced release of tax returns:   This bill was passed by senate democrats this session in an attempt to force the president and vice president to release tax returns or forfeit their right to appear on our state’s ballot. Although this bill did not pass in the house, it tells us that WA State democrats are in lockstep with their far left counterparts in the Congress.  

Green New Deal House Resolution 109: Sponsor, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, The Green new deal is not all about climate change. 

Did you know it aims for the federal government to:

1)guarantee economic security for anyone who is “unwilling’ to work.
2)guarantee every American a job with a family-sustaining wage that includes family and medical leave, paid vacation and retirement security.
3)provide all Americans quality healthcare, affordable housing, economic security, clean air and water, affordable food and access to nature.
4)provide higher education to all Americans.
5)create union jobs that pay prevailing wages.

All this along with the impossible demands for changes to our energy environment that would not work but would upend nearly every aspect of our economy and society. Cortez uses scare tactics to insure her sound bites are being properly publicized by the media.

NEW GUN LAWS GO INTO EFFECT JULY 1, 2019


Beginning July 1, new provisions of initiative 1639 will be in effect. After that date, you could be charged with a felony if you fail to securely store your firearm and a person who is legally ineligible to possess a firearm uses it to injure or kill themselves or someone else. 


What is secure storage? The law defines “secure gun storage” as a locked box, gun safe or other secure locked storage space that is designed to prevent unauthorized use or discharge of a firearm; and the act of keeping an unloaded firearm stored by such means.  


This law has many other requirements. Go to https://www.atg.wa.gov/initiative-1639  for answers to the most commonly asked questions. 


The Second Amendment Foundation has filed a lawsuit against initiative 1639 claiming it is unconstitutional. Several sheriff’s in our state openly opposed I-1639 and some say they will not enforce many of its provisions. Until the lawsuit is settled, the attorney general has made it clear, he will enforce it.  



AMERICA’S FIRST FLAG SYMBOLIZES THE PRIDE AND COURAGE OF OUR NEW NATION


After distributing a new sneaker that featured the “Betsy Ross” version of the first American flag to commemorate our country’s successful struggle to be free, Nike has pulled it from the shelves of retailers. Retailers were asked to return them to Nike after the company received a complaint from former NFL star Colin Kaepernick who said he found the shoe offensive because of its ties to America’s era of slavery. 


Should the demands of just one person be powerful enough to cause the giant Nike Corporation to pull its entire stock of sneakers away from Americans who wish to celebrate their pride in our countries successful struggle for freedom by wearing these shoes? The address for the Nike Corporation is below if you wish to share your opinion with them.
