No on I-594 Seattle Rally

A week or so ago I spent most of Saturday at a rally against Washington State Initiative I-594. The rally was held at Westlake Park in downtown Seattle. There was a pretty good turnout, perhaps 250-300 folks, and there were several interesting speakers.

Unfortunately, Bloomberg, Paul Allen, and a few other rich guys have poured over ten million bucks into passing this severely anti-gun initiative, and the rest of us just haven't got the money to compete with them and their wallets. However, there is another initiative, I-591, which will help to blunt the damage caused by I-594. I-594 will do nothing to keep firearms out of the hands of criminals, since they usually either steal, or buy stolen guns, they don't buy their guns from FFL dealers or at gun shows.

Vote YES on I-591, and Vote NO on I-594

Here's some of the pictures I took.

This was probably the safest place in Seattle that day!!

The Headstone Band

The Headstone Band, the house band at The Cozy Corner Tavern in Clinton, Wa. Photo taken in the early 70's. Left to right; Loren, Jeff, Mr. C., and Bob.

You might wonder about the previous post about Jack Bruce, and why old rock bands are an are of interest for me. Well, in the late sixties and early seventies I, too, was a rock guitarist. Certainly not on the level of the great rock guitarists of the day, (not even close!) but I did manage to supplement my modest income with some regular gigs in local bars and so on. 

Although it was quite a bit of work, it was also a whole lot of fun, too. Playing live for a crowd that is really enjoying your music is an experience that you can't really explain. You have to have experienced it to understand what I'm talking about, and if you haven't experienced it, there is no way to explain it.

Jack Bruce - R.I.P., and thanks........

Jack Bruce? Who? A lot of you folks a bit younger than I may not even recognize the name. However, the influence of a rock band in the late sixties is still heard today.

A three piece band called "Cream", comprised of Jack Bruce on Bass, Ginger Baker on drums, and Eric Clapton on guitar  produced some truly amazing rock. To this day, bands are still trying to find that energy, that groove, that sense of magic that these guys were able achieve.

This video was recorded in late 1968 at the Royal Albert Hall in London. 

Turn your speakers ALL THE WAY UP, and enjoy. This is what rock is all about!

.......far out, man!

Liberal Logic

Here's an example of how liberal logic works:

Question: "If you have four pencils and I have seven apples, how many pancakes will fit on the roof?"

Answer: "Purple, because aliens don't wear hats......"

That explains a lot!

Implant Allows Speaking To God


The implant is specifically  designed to be injected in the  forehead. When properly  installed, it will instantly allow the  terrorist to speak to God.

It comes in various sizes:  Generally from ..223 to .50  cal. The exact size of the implant  will be selected by a well-trained and highly  skilled technician, who will also make the injection.

No Anesthetic is required. The implant is likely to be  painless. Side effects, like headaches, nausea,  aches or pains are extremely  temporary. Some bleeding or swelling may  occur at the injection site. In most cases, it's not noticeable.

Please enjoy the security  provided for you by the Armed Forces of America.

Best regards,

NO on I-594, and YES on I-591 (please....)

This eighteen page long bill is a complete mess. It even conflicts with current Federal law.

VOTE NO on I-594

I-591, also on the ballot, outlaws government gun confiscation (like they did after Katrina) without due process of law. It also limits state background checks to not exceed Federal standards. This is a good initiative, and will also help dealing with I-594, should it pass too.

VOTE YES on I-591
