VICTORY over ICLEI in an unlikely place: SPOKANE, WASHINGTON!

A few years ago, activists, who as it turned out were ahead of their time, tried to get on the ballot anti-Agenda 21 and ICLEI ordinances in Spokane, Washington.

They were basically laughed out of town and were denied the ballot!

Well, as Frank Sinatra once sang:  Guess who’s laughing now!

I got an email from the Mayor of Spokane, David A. Condon, Wednesday and he said that “It is my understanding that the City joined in hopes of finding creative ideas to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. We have not renewed our membership and are no longer participating on the ICLEI.”

So I say to the activists in Spokane – have that sweetened iced tea or whatever drink you have!  RAH for VICTORY!  Then go back and fight sustainability if it is still in town!  VICTORY!  Over 210,000 freed from ICLEI!

We’ll add Spokane to the Wall of Honor!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
