Maricopa has a paper trail.
Yvonne Brandon

The republican party should foot the bill to replace those voting machines, not the Maricopa County taxpayers!
Rebecca Wolfe

I hope that they will replace them with all mail-in ballots.

On voting SW, I used to work for the manufacturer of the largest, most complex commercially available product on the market - passenger airplanes. Every bit of SW was available for review and certified by the Federal Aviation Administration. O
Daneil Lewinski
44:58
I'm pretty certain that SW was a lot more proprietary than a program that can count in whole digits. I agree the SW should be open.

BECU is open to more than just boeing folk now

What is critical race theory. Very fussy concept to me. Still.
Cindy Black
51:45
Please raise you hand “under reactions” if you have a question.
Cindy Black

@Rich - I will ask that for you.
Cindy Black

From Rebecca: CRT is an analytical tool for examining all of the many influences on the racism that has become systemic.
Cindy Black
59:19
From Rebecca: How can you sue a tool like CRT?
Rebecca Wolfe
01:01:37
As I understand CRT is an analytical tool for examining all of the many influences on the racism that has become systemic in the U. S. and beyond.
Cindy Black
01:01:57
I just attended a webinar today with Kimberly Crenshaw.
Rebecca Wolfe
01:03:35
Wouldn’t CRT apply to any “race” — not necessarily just to African-American members of the “Black” race.

Freedom Foundation has chapters in many states. It is almost entirely funded by the Koch organization.
Mike Weisman
01:07:42
Critical Race Theory refers to white people. The white race. It refers to the efforts of the white race in the US to fashion a legal system favoring white people.
Rebecca Wolfe

WASA - WA Association of School Adminisrators
Jeremy Street
01:08:04
Washington Policy Center has bought full-page ads in the Seattle Times and Spokesman Review opposing CRT.
Mike Weisman
01:13:00
CRT is NOT a theory. It is based on facts and laws; it is based on analysis of the legal system. Race, in the US, is a legal construct.
Mike Weisman
01:13:28
That is what the 1619 project, first episode, looked at.
Mike Weisman
01:14:45
Karen, civil war is coming. I dont think there is any way to prevent it.
Rebecca Wolfe
01:19:05
Great meeting, folks. Sorry, but I must leave. Until next time!
Cindy Black
01:19:35
Thanks Rebecca!

For a lot of people, "the other" are people not in their town, city, or community, and it is easier to fear people you do not know.
Carol Sullivan, Bothell
01:26:33
Wouldn’t it be nice if next week it were raining for Happy Hour??? Must leave now.

In the words of the great philosopher, “Guilt is worthless!” B. Midler.
Mike Weisman
01:36:25
Yes, good point Damita!
Mike Weisman
01:38:07
Very important point, Nick. I urge people to take vacations in Eastern WA and take time to meet people and chat with them socially.
Mike Weisman
01:44:00
Russia had slaves, Britain had slaves, France had slaves, Japan had slaves, etc
Mike Weisman

Very true Mike Weisman -- slavery is as old as the ages - people raiding & enslaving each other.
Michael Radow
01:49:24
our slavery is unique in tying slavery to the mother and other ways
Mike Weisman
01:49:34
Russia abolished slavery in 1870. Japan had slaves until the end of WWII.
Dwight Rousu
01:49:57
Power and wealth came from controlling slaves. Now it comes more from controlling corporations

fixing democracy so everybody can vote will help work the problems of our social inequality.
