COMMON CENTS: 

Been to Fred Meyers lately? Have you noticed how jumpy people are? How short people are on self-control?

Countdown to Election Day -- Debate no. 5 on Saturday Morning Live. Have you voted yet? Not sure who to vote for in the Bellingham Mayoral race? The Whatcom County Executive race? Listen in tomorrow morning to help you make this last and very important decision for the future of Whatcom County and Bellingham.

Nov 2nd – W.C. Councilperson Satpal Sidhu and Tony Larson, candidates for W.C. Executive – Part 2

 

Part One: Anthony Welti is running for the office of Insurance Commissioner for the State of Washington. What exactly does the state insurance commissioner do and what changes would Anthony work on as the Insurance Commissioner for the people of Washington State?

Part Two: Fred Su wrote a letter to the Bellingham School Board to express his opposition to their decision to implement new curriculum from the 1619 Project, a curriculum that has a lot of controversy regarding its historical accuracy and divisive nature to focus on “white privilege.” Fred will join host Kris Halterman to discuss this and a few other things he would like to share with the listeners.

Today’s Show:   

Host Kris Halterman has invited Glen as her guest to talk about the numerous lawsuits that are piling-up against our beloved Inslee, the "Lock down King." Also, on the menu is a discussion about, Title 18, U.S.C., Section 242, "Deprivation of Rights Under Color of Law." Is our Governor violating this federal law? Tune-in and call-in if you have questions or concerns about how far will Washingtonians allow the government to violate their civil rights?

LIBERTY ALERTS:

Common Threads NW and The Fourth Corner are co-sponsoring a candidate forum with the Republican candidates for Governor. The forum has been scheduled for June 18th, 2020 at the Port of Bellingham’s, Harbor Center Room. The forum will run from 7 – 9 pm and will be aired lived on KGMI, TVW, YouTube and other media platforms (to be announced later). Mark your calendars because this is an important race for our state. Gov. Inslee has proven that he does not value “all” small businesses equally. The thousands of business owners and their staff need someone that represents them in Olympia and values their contribution to our state and local economies.

Quotes from Benjamin Franklin:

Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.

Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.

He who sacrifices freedom for security deserves neither.

Thomas Jefferson also said:

He who gives his freedom for safety gets none of them. Thomas Jefferson

He that is secure is not safe. Benjamin Franklin 

We must, indeed, all hang together or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately. Benjamin Franklin

Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech. Benjamin Franklin

Do not fear mistakes. You will know failure. Continue to reach out. Benjamin Franklin

Distrust and caution are the parents of security. Benjamin Franklin

Where liberty is, there is my country. Benjamin Franklin
