POLITICS: Trains, planes and fools

Trains, planes and fools all have one thing in common.

Trains: Democrats propose to add a dime to outrageously expensive gasoline prices to further subsidize train rides that now cost you about $80 per trip.

Planes: Boeing SPEEA technicians, who support Democrats with their union dues, are considering a strike.

Fools: Seattle Democratic Sen. Ed Murray, sponsor of Senate Bill 5737 . . .  and all the above.

This bill would allow blatantly unconstitutional police searches of your home. Pulling that provision is good politics but does not excuse submitting it in the first place.

Why do we continually support politicians who have no regard for those they represent or the Constitution they swear to uphold?
