Thanks, Bernie! Your campaign was a long shot from the beginning, but, as many have noted, your more-than-respectable showing in the primary season has pulled the conversation and the political center a little to the left.

Thank you Washington politicians for all that you have done with the dismantling of medical marijuana that had functioned stupendously without your involvement.
We expect a lot from government services, but we don’t like to pay for them. Virtually every public agency is doing more with less. In that respect, we’re all in the same boat, but there are some needs that can’t be short-changed. Public safety is first on the list.
This comment on my Facebook feed summed up the week in politics with laconic accuracy: “I’m frustrated that there seems to be no room in our political landscape for pro-life Democrats.”
I know the Democratic nominee has a lot on her mind as she prepares to accept her party’s coronation.

I want to express my support for Randy Ross for Grays Harbor Commissioner No. 2.
As a lifelong Republican, I don’t much care who runs the Democratic National Committee. But I am deeply disturbed by the way that Debbie Wasserman Schultz was forced to resign as the DNC head over the weekend.

The Republican Party was seriously wounded Thursday night by an orange-hued heathen who, after months of battering conservatives with divisive, xenophobic and often nonsensical rhetoric, dropped the once-proud party of Lincoln to its knees by accepting its nomination for president.
As Heidi Cruz left Cleveland’s Quicken Loans arena after her husband, Ted, gave his stemwinder at the Republican National Convention, she was escorted by security through a hostile crowd. Apparently, people in the audience were annoyed that Cruz hadn’t endorsed Donald “I Call Him Lyin’ Ted” Trump. They couldn’t believe that the Texan actually gave his national audience permission to vote their conscience. They were in shock he didn’t bring gold, frankincense and myrrh with him to the podium as a gift.
