Douglas County, WA

In this blog's recognition of Washington's 39 counties, each of the next 39 posts on Commoner will be named in honor of a county, in alphabetical order starting with Adams. The county that is recognized on a particular day does not necessarily correlate with the particular topic chosen for that day other than in the general sense.


This blog is neither endorsing Mitt Romney or Barack Obama for president in 2012, but it's interesting that one of Obama's campaign commercials suggests that the president has compassion for the unemployed, although, his Treasury Department, specifically the I.R.S., is on a campaign of threatening property takeovers as well as putting property levies on the unemployed who get behind on their unemployment insurance taxes, which really shouldn't be taxed at all.  In a nation where billionaires and millionaires get tax deductions for vacation homes, among many other types of ridiculous tax deductions for the rich, Uncle Sam taxes unemployment insurance and harasses the unemployed if they can't pay up.  So much for the president's and Treasury Department Secretary Tim Geithner's compassion for the unemployed; it's very minuscule, if any at all.

If possible, please, consider contributing to campaign: make selections of how you want to donate, or send check or money order to Mark Greene for Lieutenant Governor Comm., P.O. Box 612, Bellevue, WA 98009. Also, Mark is depending on supporters to spread the word about the campaign to get around the media bias regarding non-establishment campaigns. Thank you! Mark is probably the only politician in Washington that had the temerity to keep the 2004 election shenanigans in the news as late as 2011 and to call out names. Elections are too important for shams to be ignored and for accountability to be neglected.
