Legislative Preview Video from TVW

The one piece of technology that failed me this weekend was audio from the AP Legislative Preview in Olympia last week. TVW, however, made it easy. They’ve made the videos from the preview embeddable. If you’ve got a few hours and an ear for wonkiness, the videos follow the jump.

One thought on “Legislative Preview Video from TVW

  1. Speaking of the legislators… wasting their time and taxpayer money by fluff name changing seems counterproductive. I’m posting this here because I have a point to make… if I may.

    Words matter, no one said they didn’t.
    To ‘legislate’ words to camouflage another, less appealing sounding word makes no sense….the MEANING/effect of the word is the same. The child is poor, not hopeless, only POOR.
    Calling a poor child, disadvantaged or calling them ‘at hope’…means the same thing and changes nothing. The child is still poor.

    Some of todays most influential families came from one disadvantaged child. …Rockefeller for one, Kennedy for another.
    Carnegie is another name of distinction.
    How these people began as disadvantaged children and ended by creating ‘hope’ for others would not likely have happened if they had not immigrated here as ‘disadvantaged’..

    “Rags to riches refers to any situation in which a person rises from poverty to wealth, or sometimes from obscurity to fame. …
    These stories give the poor hope that they can rise to fame and wealth. They are most popular in societies such as the United States, where confidence in the ability to move between social classes is an important part of the national identity, of which lays the foundation of the “American Dream”….”

    The ‘disadvantaged’ child has NEVER meant HOPELESS child.

    Legislators…have you nothing better to do than change a name that doesn’t need changing?
    Educate people to become more kind and sensitive to others, yes..name changing, no.
