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.

Ban of the Killer Plastic Bag

The Seattle City Clowncil enacted law against killer plastic bags.    Paper bags will still be available at most locations for the mandated price of a nickel each. 

"Bring your own bag" is the message the mindless nitwits of the Clowncil says they are trying to promulgate.

The supposed increase in pollution is cited as the cause for the plastic bag ban. When nailed down, the Clowncil members insist there is too many plastic bags in the landfills.  Never mind plastic trash is only 0.4% of landfill trash

The Clowncil should have enacted a recycling program.  But its more fun to tell a formerly free people they aren't free anymore.

The People's right to rule is challenged.

Initiative 1053 was overturned by the power hungry King County Superior Court Judge Bruce Heller.  

The leftist legislators who backed the court challenge patted themselves on the back, saying they would be able to fund education now the will of the People was out of the way.  

There is no truth to their lies.  The state of Washington spent a total of  $32.1 billion in 2011.  Of that, $17.3 billion of state funds was spent on education, leaving almost $15 billion for the legislature to spend on other pursuits. 

The right of the People to informed self-rule is absolute.  Law cannot be based on misleading the People. 

Law should be consistent.  This is the reason why law should be written down  ---  so law is forced to be consistent with the written record.  If law is not consistent in application or content, it is unfair.

When law is disregarded and a judge goes on making up law form the bench, that is a form of terrorism.  Law is no longer consistent, law is no longer reliable.

If law is not consistent, then law which states racial discrimination is illegal no longer matters.  Terror ensues.

If law about property is abandoned, then property is automatically forfeited to the control of terrorist [government].

Many "progressive" judges willingly legislate from the bench, saying their ruling is constitutional.  But there is no part of the written constitution they base their new law on.  They are practicing terrorist adjudication.

Those judges should be tried for this crime against the right of the People to govern themselves.  "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."  (Washington State Constitution, Article 1, Section 1)

Especially offensive is the statement by big tax coalition that "Initiative 1053 allows a small segment of the Legislature to overturn the principal of majority rule."  The majority of the People made this decision.  The legislature derives its authority from the People, so if the legislature whines about it, the legislature is out of line.

Olympia is too transparent -- Kline

State Sen. Adam Kline announced he is resigning from the Public Records Exemptions Accountability Committee (The Sunshine Committee), over whether jurors should be able to serve on juries despite no legal eligibility.  Kline indicated government does not need to be that clear about government.

"[W]hile couched in innocent terms as an enhancement of the public’s right to know … is to create a public scandal about illegal aliens serving on Washington juries and use it to advance legislation requiring photo identification for voters and/or requiring citizenship for drivers licenses," Kline wrote.

Kline said he felt strongly about the committee’s fundamental purpose but believes the balance of  power had swung too far in the direction of transparent government.

“The public as a whole, in my view, has equal and competing interests in transparency and privacy,” he wrote, “and I believe strongly that the rightful role of the committee is to reach a balance between the two. That view is not shared by the majority of the committee, in which the press is numerically dominant.”

Seattle should consider retiring Adam Kline.
