Washington State residents: Listen Up! 91.7 FMSubmitted by pawnstorm12 on Tue, 02/12/2013 - 20:22
Radio station 91.7 FM is now TVW which monitors state government, much like the TV station. Much of it broadcasts from the capitol in Olympia. I believe this is a fairly new thing here. You won't believe what you'll hear on this station.
Things like state legislators or steering committees speaking about future or current bills, proposals and initiatives. Or just citizens petitioning the state government for laws, fees, taxes etc. It's a great way to hear what they are thinking and what they want to do here so we can try to stop it.
Some examples of things I've heard: Implementing a state income tax. Implementing a user tax for drivers (ie using GPS to track your mileage and charge accordingly). Fining you if you live in one county and work in another.
One idiot has proposed a use tax on automobiles because they say they're coming up short on revenues from gas taxes. BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE DRIVING MORE EFFICIENT CARS LIKE THEY TOLD US TO DO!!!.
And on and on it goes.
Let me tell you - it won't take much listening before smoke will be coming out of your ears listening to these thieves conniving on how to get more of our MONEY.
