On January 14, 2015, an unidentified representative of “Constituent Services” authors an unsigned letter of response to the People on Washington state. On December 29, 2014, the People instructed Washington’s Governor Jay Inlee to request Attorney General Bob Ferguson to investigate the STEVENS COUNTY “Prosecutor” and “Sheriff” for criminal conduct and usurping a county office after failing to “duly qualify” for that office.
In another blow to critics of cannabis law reform, marijuana bastions such as San Francisco and Seattle are part of America’s top five healthiest cities. The money website NerdWallet analyzed fitness and health care data for the 50 largest U.S. metro areas and released their list Monday.
So I just returned from a trip back home. My first trip back to the US in a few years. It was a great trip and I even had the desire to stay a while longer....
But now that I'm back in Asia, I thought I would share with you two key observations that got stuck in my head:
Seattle's public transit system has had a ruff go of things lately, and that has riders smiling.
You see, of the 120 million riders who used the system last year, one of them is actually a dog. Seattle's KOMO-TV reports the 2-year-old black Labrador mix, named Eclipse, has become a regular fixture on the city's D-Line after she figured out how to ride the bus alone to the dog park.
"All the bus drivers know her. She sits here just like a person does," fellow rider Tiona Rainwater told KOMO. "She makes everybody happy. How could you not love this thing?"
My name is Paul West and I live in Auburn WA. If the Daily Paul is really going away (I must have missed something) I would like to say thank you Michael and helpers. It's been a great ride and a real eye opener. I was a big supporter in '08. And '12 for that matter but feel what I learned is the system is really rigged. Unless you manage to reach the tipping point. People are not stupid but are stuck in their ways.
I wish everybody the best and thanks to everyone for helping us all stay up to date on current events. I think we are in for a rough ride. Vote with your dollars!
The Religion of Science Has a New Pope!
And 'deniers' are the neo-heretics and infidels!
The Pope appears to usher in a new Dark Age for Humanity by creating an encyclical... not about religion... it's about science and politics!
Will a new age of Inquisition also ensue?
"He has been called the 'superman pope', and it would be hard to deny that Pope Francis has had a good December. Cited by President Barack Obama as a key player in the thawing relations between the US and Cuba, the Argentinian pontiff followed that by lecturing his cardinals on the need to clean up Vatican politics. But can Francis achieve a feat that has so far eluded secular powers and inspire decisive action on climate change?"
"It looks as if he will give it a go. In 2015, the pope will issue a lengthy message on the subject to the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics, give an address to the UN general assembly and call a summit of the world’s main religions."

Guerilla Open Access Manifesto
Aaron Swartz [1986-2013]:
Information is power. But like all power, there are those who want to keep it for themselves. The world's entire scientific and cultural heritage, published over centuries in books and journals, is increasingly being digitized and locked up by a handful of private corporations. Want to read the papers featuring the most famous results of the sciences? You'll need to send enormous amounts to publishers like Reed Elsevier.
There are those struggling to change this. The Open Access Movement has fought valiantly to ensure that scientists do not sign their copyrights away but instead ensure their work is published on the Internet, under terms that allow anyone to access it. But even under the best scenarios, their work will only apply to things published in the future. Everything up until now will have been lost.
Shocking video provided exclusively to Infowars last week set off a firestorm among Americans after a sheriff’s deputy was captured saying that armored military vehicles were needed for “constitutionalists” and gun owners.
I would like DP's input here on the Spokane County Deputy's comments about 'Constitutionalists' video being publicized so heavily by infowars right now.
I am sure that many here at DP are probably following the Spokane protests and infowars coverage over deputy comments and I would like to ask the DP does anyone here see the possibility of manipulation in the video that shows the deputies comments?
Liberty is alive and playing "Kick the Can" in Washington ...

The world is talking, the tyrants are still reeling and most politicians don’t even know what to say as they sit in slack jawed silence pretending nothing happened"...

Washington state teacher forces boy, 8, to unclog toilet with bare hands, parents say
BY LEE MORAN NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Thursday, December 4, 2014, 11:03 AM
Artie and Lisa Adams said they discovered their third-grade son’s teacher, Brent Taylor, had made the boy perform the filthy task after complaining that a toilet was clogged at Scootney Springs Elementary in Othello. Taylor has since been made to take a course on hygiene and the Adams have pulled their son from the school.
