Yesterday when I was checking the air quality before going out and mowing the lawn, I noticed that the town of Nespelem had and Air Quality Index (AQI) of 500.
Bacisly if you went out side – you couldn’t breathe.
On and FYI, the middle of August is the START of our fire season……..
Like today – high winds expected – gusts up to 65mph – all over the fire area.
And again a great big thank you to Republicans especially our very own wonderful US Representative Cathy Dumber Then A Pile Of Rocks McMorris Rodgers for voting in the budget to cut funding for wild fire fighting.
It turns out this is the worst wild fire season on record so thanks for cutting the funding.

“An unknown number of the e-mails housed on Bush’s
server were redacted or withheld from public release
because they contained sensitive security issues, Bush
representatives have said. Communications director Tim
Miller said general policy was for Bush to discuss
sensitive National Guard issues in person with only
occasional briefings by e-mail that ‘wouldn’t contain
information that should not be in the public domain.’”

“When I was governor of the state of Florida, I
released all my emails. I’m writing an e-book about my
emails. I think we need a lot more transparency in
“It took Mr. Bush seven years after leaving office to
comply fully with a Florida public records statute
requiring him to turn over emails he sent and received
as governor, according to records released Friday. Mr.
Bush delivered the latest batch of 25,000 emails in May
2014, seven and a half years after leaving the
Statehouse and just as he started to contemplate a
potential run for the White House”.[The New York Times,
‘…and he did not turn over all of them – only 250,000
out of 550,000 emails on his private account, according
to the Naples Daily News, 7/12/07…’
‘…but he is the one who actually decided which emails
out of that total to turn over’:
“The former governor conducted all his communication on
his private Jeb@jeb.org account and turned over the
hand-selected batch to the state archives when he left
office. Absent from the stash are emails the governor
deemed not relevant to the public record: those
relating to politics, fundraising and personal matters
while he was governor.” [Tampa Bay Times, 1/3/15]
‘And CNN has revealed that’,
“…a CNN review of those emails turned up evidence a
number of his official aides and family members also
had email addresses housed at Jeb.org — and used them
to conduct both official and political business —
raising questions about how transparent that email dump
ultimately was.” [CNN, 3/5/15]
What an idiot…….
You women don’t worry your pretty little heads over something so hard to understand. We Republican men will tell you what choices you can and can’t make.
