WHAT:  "The History of Constitutional Representation in the United States"
WHO:  Mike Coburn
WHEN:  Friday, February 27, 2009
WHERE:  King's Books, 218 St. Helens Ave., Tacoma, WA 98402

A self-described “non-violent terrrrrrrist,” Mike Coburn is a 62-year-old retired big rig driver. He drove for only four years, but has driven in all of the lower 48 states and Canada.

Prior to 2002 Coburn had his own IP services company and did business as Soft Folks Inc. out of Bothell, WA, and Coburn Associates out of Houston, Texas. He spent 25 years in technology before the H1B Republicans and Clinton together “destroyed the technology sector of the United States economy.”

Coburn says, “I actually enjoyed the trucking, but I am not going to forgive the Newt Gingrich Repukes for how they messed up my early retirement. I was able to save money and buy a house working three days a week before those maggots destroyed the world.” As a trucker Coburn worked eight hours a week and “cleared less than half what I made before the Gingrich attack on the economy. EVERYBODY should get better wages. Especially the dudes on the lower end.”

For the past thirty years his interests have been economic and political theory with only a minor interest in technology. “It is just very difficult to make a living in economic or political theory," he says. Many who like to build fine furniture and cabinetry can appreciate this problem.”

Coburn advocates expanding the U.S. House of Representatives and specifying an irrefutable, incorruptible, Internet polling system to replace the current rigged voting systems that are in use in our elections. It may be that the second interest will supersede and obviate any need for the first.

On Friday, February 27, 2009, at 7:00 p.m., hear Mike Coburn speak on "The History of Constitutional Representation in the United States" at King’s Books, 218 St. Helens Ave., Tacoma.
