Eyman must stop nonsense

Who does Tim Eyman think he is, an elected official? Reading about his latest proposals makes me want to start one myself – banning him from further

attempts to waste the taxpayers’ money. In a self-inflicted ego trip, railing against the wasteful spending by the government, Eyman’s latest initiative about voting on all taxes is nothing more than more expensive bureaucracy. Where does this watch salesman from Mukilteo think the funds to hold such elections come from, the Tooth Fairy?

After wondering if I still had a job, following his I-695 and I-745 proposals, I feel that if he wants to put out such things, then maybe he should do what other crusaders have done, namely run for an elected office where he would be taken as a serious person instead of the bad joke he is rapidly becoming. It is time he grew up, became a team player and stopped all this nonsense.
