I live in an insane asylum. Washington State was doing just fine until all the Californians migrated up here with their politics. Now Washington politics suck more than Windows Vista, if you can believe that. This state is fucking doomed.
This just in...
Washington Sends $1 Food Stamps to 250,000 People. How does one comment on such a story? Seriously.
You think that's bad? I've got a better one. Between 2002 and 2004, Seattle Public Utilities charged fire hydrant surcharges. A class-action lawsuit was filed, and the customers won because fire hydrants are a municipal responsibility, not utility. Last month, the judge ordered a $22.7 million water rebate. The average refund would amount to something like $45 per customer. Well, guess what? Seattle Public Utilities ain't got the cash. So what does city council do? By a vote of 7-1, the council approved a monthly utility surcharge to pay for the refund. Sit down and think about that for a second. And if you can't figure out what's wrong with that picture, you probably should be hanging out here. I swear I can't make this shit up! Here's the story.
Pure Fucking Insanity! Do I laugh or cry? And here this whole time I've been bashing Minnesota like there ain't no tomorrow when the real insanity is right here in my own backyard!
