45th LD State Rep. Race

Media political endorsements

Noticed all the "Endorsed by Seattle Times" stickers on the Joel Hussey signs. Do the people running his campaign actually think this is a postive thing? He is basically a bean counter/soccer dad and neither qualifies him to represent accurately and successfully the people of the 45th LD. The Seattle Times is no longer a respected and trusted source of information and their endorsements are worthless. People need to stop relying on media endorsements and start doing their OWN research, making up their own minds. Sheep follow; people think.

Name calling? Not at all. Just repeating what I have been told about you. And if you read correctly, I did not only say MSNBC. Informed voters use a variety of sources for their information so they can make unbiased, intelligent choices. The United States, in case you did not realize, is NOT Amsterdam. Their government did not impose the same sort of regulations and oversight that is being proposed here. I wish you luck with your closed mind - again, very sad for you.

Ah, poor Ken James. Or are you going to try to claim that you know more about the marijuana situation than both of the King County sheriff candidates? They have both endorsed legalization, you know. Seems to me they would both have a much closer experience and more accurate data than you present. Their understanding of the "criminal enterprises" is quite extensive and obviously much more realistic than yours.

Barbara, Alone, the fact that a candidate for a political office has adopted a particular position, does not change my opinion on that topic. If they, or anyone else, offer new, factual information, I take that into consideration. I'm a grown up and I can form my own opinions based on experience and common sense; I don't need to rely on the opinions of politicians or political hacks. What I offered in support of my position is factual and irrefutable. What you have offered are insults and little more.

Barbara... Many of your comments are irritating, off topic, rude, and include references to private people that are not running for office. Give it a rest.

Nancy, once again. Leave the politics to the adults. Isn't it time for your nap? Or your meds? Give yourself a rest....your comment is not only wrong but has nothing to do with the subject.
