Both major parties are OK with decades of ongoing, undeclared wars overseas, the drug war, and a homeland security police state that can’t keep heroin out of the US.


The train is running off the tracks. Every day it is something new:

Olympic National Park plans for sequestration cuts

Narrows toll rise likely to be 25 cents

Gas tax hike

North Kitsap School District to close an elementary school

Car tab, bike fees part of House transport package

Shipyard could lose seasonal workers to budget constraints

TOM PHILPOTT | Military cuts ‘catastrophic’ for civilians

DOD partial shutdown-

Panetta notifies Congress of possible furloughs


Here are a few budgetary suggestions-

Phase out decades of ongoing, undeclared wars in distant lands.

Phase out the Drug War.

Downsize a US Department of Homeland Security that is unable to keep heroin out of the US.

Enable an instant, non-experimental jobs program/revenue generator requiring zero tax dollars-

Allow U.S. farmers to answer the global demand for Industrial Hemp.


Would elected officials tolerate free enterprise in the case of Industrial Hemp?
