1. Thurston Judicial Offices were vacant for at least eight years.
2. Thurston Commissioner's likely didn't or don't have one either.
3. All decisions by these judges should be considered nullified during at least an eight year period.
4. Explains why these Hazard County judges aren't too concerned about following the Constitution.
5. They've likely covered their tracks and have back dated oaths on hand now that were just probably "misfiled" at the Sec. of State's office. Oh, BTW, the State office where Thurston Insider Sam Reed recently appointed Nick Handy (Thurston Judge Paula Casey's Husband as our Sate Director of Elections) Good luck getting a fair vote count in November (ala Dino Rossi v. Gregoire).
6. They will hunt me down like a dog and make me pay for standing up to "dem bullies."
7. Who cares, right? Just shut up, drink your Kool Aid, party, jet ski, fornicate and have a good time. Life is short, who cares? Let's just pretend we are free and we live under the rule of law and are protected by the Washington and US Constitutions.
8. A new state "law" will be written amending the constitution stating judges don't need to take a Pesky Oath to actually follow the highest, great law of the land. Nah, that would just get in the way of doing things the Hazard County way.
