Anyone who thinks corporate interests aren’t about money and not making something cheaper for the consumer doesn’t get it.
Costco looks like another example of piratization by spending $22 million on this election. Consumers will pay these costs and more in lost jobs.
Of higher concern is accessibility, theft by minors and adult ease of getting more liquor when they shouldn’t. That ease – causing one life being lost or one person maimed – is why I’m voting no on Initiative 1183.
More than 50 years ago when I was a minor, I got hard liquor any time I wanted it under the present system. So anyone who thinks more access is not going to elevate offenses, family destruction, death and maiming has another thought coming.
Privatization is only an excuse for greed. When it can take a life, the greed is at its worse. Inconvenience doesn’t kill. Washington voters need to stop the pirates (corporation) and protect lives and jobs by voting no on I-1183.
