It's pronounced Pa-koh-tas, like "Dakotas." The "o" sound is long, like the "o" sound in "Joe."
The moderator from the League of Women Voters of Pullman asks about half a dozen questions at the League's primary forum on Monday night before she finally gets it right.
(McMorris Rodgers, who was campaigning in Spokane on Monday, never responded to the League's invitation. Horne missed the forum in order to crash a Republican shindig and confront McMorris Rodgers in person.) (SNIP)
Tom Horne (R): The Obama administration should shut the hell up. This is an Israeli problem. Wars brought to a logical conclusion end. Wars brought to some silly negotiated end that dont make sense on the ground they don't end; they go into recess. The Israelis have to beat the Palestinians into the ground in order for this to quit. (SNIP)
Horne (R): We should change the law as quickly as possible to allow them to be deported immediately back into the their homes. (SNIP)
Horne (R): Im very concerned about the impact of not reauthorizing the Ex-Im bank. On the other hand in a perfect world, if we werent competing with state-sponsored industries, like [multinational European aerospace company] Airbus, there would be no need for an Ex-Im bank. (SNIP)
Horne (R): This whole region, historically all the money and jobs originally came through mining and logging. Now the Forest Service and the [Environmental Protection Agency] have effectively shut down logging and mining. I think the first thing I would do is loosen the grip of the EPA and the Forest Service. (SNIP)
Horne (R): I think the social safety net should be reduced a little bit. It should not be so attractive.

But...but....Obama is our Saviour! /S
Well, you are incorrect sir.
We are Israel’s patron, providing $3.1 billion in military aid each year.
$800 million is used for manufacturing, as well R&D, which Israel shares with us.
We should be doing our level best to ensure that investment results in an enduring peace but, it seems we are a bit schizophrenic and bi-polar, with multiple personalities.
Maybe we should assign a guardian relationship, as we don’t seem very capable of consistent philosophy and actions congruent with responsible fiscal matters...
The U.N.? Oh wait...
