- as a Democrat and against Maria Cantwell. His website is and it will be posted in the column to the right in a few days. If Mark is to have a real chance then he needs supporters now - to get his campaign going strong and show there is a chance. Yes, politics feeds on itself.

So - party line Ds will lecture us that if Mark somehow beats Maria in the primary that he will have no chance against Republican Mike McGavick, the anointed one from the right. In truth, he may have a better chance than Maria as Washington state is pretty liberal.

Mark, a veteran, wants us out of Iraq. Maria is decidedly on the fence, playing both sides.

Bush has helped Bin Laden

By John ServaisOn Jun 29, 2005

Fluoride in water is medicine

We found the nerve endings. The fluoride proponents don’t like the word “medicine” as used in the June 16 post below. Of course fluoride in water is just that - medicine. Medicine that is supposedly h

The fluoride proponents don’t have a clue. They don’t get it. When I open my water tap, I want clean water to come out, not medicine.
